A waste of money

The Republicans are against extending unemployment insurance because of concerns about the deficit. Yet since 911 I have read one trillion of our dollars have been wasted in the so-called war against terror.

One trillion dollars! Most Americans can’t even begin to comprehend what that amount could have done to change our country for the better had it been spent on food, shelter, education, eliminating slums, etc.

I am mad as hell about this and the fact that Goldman Sachs is getting off with a messily $500 million fine after doing trillions of dollars worth of damage to the world’s economy.

There is no sense of justice, if there ever was in this country.
