Alright guys. I'm sorry to do this, but I'm about to go off half cocked.
The gross examples of poor spending practices by GWB, the 'Leader of the Free World' has left us with a staggering projected year end deficit of
over one trillion dollars. I recently had a discussion about this with my mother, a feirce republican, and she remained adamant that the trillion
dollars would reappear, in the form of international business. Unfortunately, that's just not true. Because the bulk of this money goes to fund
government contracts in the rebuilding of Iraq, and we all know about Dick Cheney's duplicity regarding the awarding of contracts, the US, and more
specifically my generation (the ones most likely to suffer the loss) will most likely see a return of around 10-20%. That means that we will have a
dent in the economic prosperity of this country that equals about 15% of the total national debt, just from the deficit of the fiscal year 2003.
Here's how I figured that...If a company recieves a contract, they are most likely already an international business. Therefore, not even half of
the money will return to domestic markets, as most companies farm the bulk of their work from poorer countries.
Furthermore, with thte way that these contracts are being awarded, the money goes to the rich big-wallet republicans that try to skate through
without spending a dime of their own. It's sickening really, how little of that 1 trillion we'll ever see again.
It really steams me that the people that this will affect the most had absolutely no say in what went on. I'm sure that my little brother and sister
would have had something to say, Had I been able to explain to them that the economy they inherit will be #. Maybe the current regime has yet to
realize this, but money is real. It's not something you can just move around in massive amounts without repercussion.
Well, i think I've said my peice on this subject. If you have a rebuttal, or anything like it, feel free. No flaming please. I don't appreciate
that. Plus, I'm the God of Mischeif, and Lord of Fire. You do the math.
