Use war budget for peaceful purposes

Have I had too many beers? We go to countries, kill thousands and then spend billions to fix them back up. We spend billions training them for years to do their jobs. When I was is the military, we spent two months in basic training, two months in infantry training and then it was off to Vietnam. Simple.

I think we better take a few billion (quite a few) and take care of our seniors and our children. That should be our priority. Bush and Cheney and the rest of them don't need anymore kickbacks. Vote for more war money to take care of our seniors and children. We definitely owe it to them.
