Two Billion a Week

That is what this war in Iraq is now costing us.

In the meantime, I do not have access to preventive healthcare, any meaningful form of social welfare program in case I lose my job, any guarantee that my children (if I ever have any) will be provided with a decent education, decent public transportation, or any of a zillion other things that people in other countries take for granted.

I could probably do some reading and find all kinds of things that could have been accomplished with all that money (sup New Orleans), but that would be too depressing.
