It seems that history will look back a George W Bush and remember him as the president who started a war on false pretenses and then gave away enough American money to build a new nation – if they could only find it. We all know the false pretenses, it has become part of the nation speech for the “Axis of Evil” and “Weapons of Mass Destruction“. Sure, by now we have almost forgotten about the war that brought the end of Saddam Hussein and the eminent threat of cold war, toxic chemical genocide and mass murder of those who are unlike everyone else. It also seems that the Pentagon has released some information from 2004 that… well… might be a little embarrassing. In a covert operation to buy Iraq, the US Government loaded C-130 transport carries packed with shrink-wrapped $100 bills and sent them on a journey to buy off anyone who opposed the Bush Administration. Funny part is, no one can find or knows what happened to the money…. over 6.6 BILLION of it!
POOF! Gone! Nobody knows what happened to it or where it might have gone. The American taxpayers are required to keep records of what they take in and spend, but the Federal Government can ‘lose’ several billion dollars and not have to account for it. BULLSHIT! That’s right. Bullshit! How do you lose a cargo plane full of money? How do you ‘misplace’ billions and not have to account for it even 7 years later? This is not the first time and we’re sure it won’t be the last. We just wan tot know where the money went… and why? The USA has dumped billions of dollars in cash into countries for years to ‘build’ relationships – we can all see how well that has worked out.
Here’s an idea… stop giving money to other countries and start spending it on your own country. If you think we have a problem in our own country, how can spending billion on other countries make our lives better. In an economy that has been collapsing for years with virtually no end in sight (except for the power pushers who say everything is good). If you’re income is less than $150,000 a year – you’re feeling the pinch. If your income is less than $50,000 a year – it is impossible to keep living without eating up your savings or living paycheck to paycheck. If your income is less than $25,000 a year – you probably have roommates and live like a commune fraternity troop. If you’re income is less than $12,000 you probably are on welfare, medicaid and SSI while you visit the free clinic and local food pantry to keep your belly full and meth lab going.
