Well, here's how your tax dollars are being spent! And this does not include the $3 billion being handed out to Pakistan every year (For sheltering the likes of Osama - EKIA, Mullah Omar, Haqqani, Zahwari and other terror honchos who have killed more than 1500 American and ISAF soldiers and wounded many more). The irony is that Americans are paying Pakistan for getting their own soldiers killed!


Taxpayers in The United States will pay $107.3 billion for the Proposed Afghanistan war spending for FY2011/12 !!!

Now, for the same amount of money, the following could be provided:

55.0 million Children Receiving Low-Income Healthcare for One Year OR
1.6 million Elementary School Teachers for One Year OR
1.9 million Firefighters for One Year OR
14.1 million Head Start Slots for Children for One Year OR
24.3 million Households with Renewable Electricity - Solar Photovoltaic for One Year OR
64.8 million Households with Renewable Electricity-Wind Power for One Year OR
13.8 million Military Veterans Receiving VA Medical Care for One Year OR
22.1 million People Receiving Low-Income Healthcare for One Year OR
1.6 million Police or Sheriff's Patrol Officers for One Year OR
13.6 million Scholarships for University Students for One Year OR
19.3 million Students receiving Pell Grants of $5550.


But then, the PTB need war because of lucrative contracts by the big corporations. Here are some details of the big guns’ yearly contracts who are raking in the billions in Afghanistan:

Contractor.....................................................Value

Kellogg, Brown & Root (Halliburton).............$11,431,000,000
Parsons Corp...........................................$5,286,136,252

And that's not all! There are hundreds more smaller contractors who have a hand in the pie!

Who is next?

Whomever the corporate masters tell the politicians to attack, thats who is next.

And why not...corporations are people too ya know..and people need to make money somehow. The United Corporatocracy of America exports all things, from its jobs, to its tax status, to its political puppets allegience...at least when they export its weapons overseas, we get a pretty light show on the television.

God Bless America, the bestest most awesome coolest richest peaceful smartest healthiest land on earth ever...your politicians said this was so, and why would they lie?

Its one thing when us plebs are waving the pitchforks...when will some of these greedy bastards decide their legacy for their family is important and speak out against how corporatocracy is robbing the country blind for the lulz and diamond boats...jellyfish in suits.
