The necrophilia nation

LBJ said, “You can’t have guns and butter.”
The USA never seems to learn the perils of empire: inflation,unemployment at home (Defense spending creates few jobs) and maybe most of all—a culture of death.
Read it and weep.
The Center for Defense Information notes that the 2008 official budget for military spending was drastically understated and that the real figure was over 900 billion dollars when all war expenses were included. Rounded off, what that means is that this nation, which cannot decide whether basic health care is a human right, is spending on kill-power:
77 billion dollars a month
19 billion dollars a week
Over 2 ½ billion dollars a day
Over 100 million dollars an hour
Almost 2 million dollars a minute
And over 31 thousand dollars a second.
