Maybe this video by the American Friends Service Committee (the Quakers) should be posted on my cranky blog. But too many of my friends just seem way too complacent about what is going on.
Each and every day into the unseeable future, our leaders are spending an outrageous amount of our tax money in Iraq. It isn't even counted in the "budget". It's on the charge card, so to speak. Each of these choices of things that we could spend our money on here (that are illustrated in this video), instead of on death and destruction there, are what we could buy in just one day. Think about it.
