What really boggles my mind is the huge outlays for military and defense spending. I remember scratching my head when days after the 9-11 attacks, and the White House at that time said there was no connection to Saddam Hussein, yet somehow there was already talk of an invasion to Iraq. Amazing how some defense contractors, for example Halliburton, quadrupled its share price after the invasion of Iraq. I think Washington is ridden with con men and the disingenuous, who really have very little regard for what happens to the long term fiscal health of our nation and its citizens.
