"Totally Within Budget"
War doesn't cost money. I mean, duh. Congress has spent the last two weeks posturing about the "waste" of NPR and school teachers and health care and how it's all going ot be paid for, and the President hasn't even suggested that spending what's going to end up being billions to own yet another clusterfuck might be a cause to raise taxes.
If you want a great example of how this logic works, please ponder this: this weekend the U.S. launched over 100 Tomahawk missiles into Libya. They cost a few hundred grand apiece. In other words, this weekend the United Stated spent about five years of NPR funding in.... an hour. I feel this gives a new meaning to All Things Considered.
