When I was in the Army during the Vietnam War, the noncoms would ask me what three things does it take to fight a war.
At first I said the Army, the Navy and Air Force. They said no it takes money, money and more money!
For a while, I didn't think about it much, but I've always had a curious mind. So, I did some research and found out that the stockholders of the military industrial complex got all that money.
Now we're engaged in another war and just stepped out of a second.
You hear about all these soldiers getting killed or maimed - arms and legs missing, blinded or disfigured both physically and mentally.
To some in this country, that's OK as long as their capital gains and dividend money keeps flowing in.
These billionaires' sons and daughters will never go in the military. Their rich daddies can buy them a diploma at one of the diploma factories like Princeton, Cambridge and Harvard.
President George W. Bush gave them a tax of 14 percent on top of the money they're making from the wars.
These are real patriots making money from our poor soldiers. Then they cry that they shouldn't have to pay the same tax rate as the working peasants.
Also, all this money was borrowed from the communists in China.
