Budget Blues

If you're wondering why the Bush budget seems to feed the military and nothing else, you're not alone. Robert Scheer at Truthdig has a lot to say about what our funds are feeding in his recent article, Take from the Poor, Give to the Military.

"Where would the Bush administration be without terrorism? Like the Cold War before it, the "war on terror" is a conveniently sweeping rationale for all manner of irrational governance, such as the outrageous $2.77-trillion budget the president proposed to Congress on Monday. "

Another great thought provoker from Truthout.
