The cost of the "war" in Iraq will soon reach $500,000,000,000 (500 billion). George Bush thinks this is money well spent. He deemed it necessary to invade a sovereign nation that is proven to have no weopons of mass destruction, no ties to Osama Bin Laden, and no history of terrorism against us or anyone else. All Iraq does have is what Mr. Bush is really after - oil.
But since Mr. Bush can't think.........of anything better to spend the money on, let's see if we can provide him with some ideas. Not too many though, we all know how confused he can get.
$500 billion can provide:
Salaries for 50,000 Head Start teachers for 232 years.
Fund Meals on Wheels for 8,000,000 of our elderly for 35 years.
$500 worth of clothes for 2,000,000 homeless people for the next 500 years.
$5,000 worth of health care for 10,000,000 people for 10 years.
Then there's the reinstatement of all the money George Bush has stolen from programs that deal with the environment, job programs, medicare, medicaid, social security, health care, health insurance, education, and more.
