No Hillary or Barack, 10X$ Military vs Education and Right Wing Humor.

I don't want to do the Barack/Hillary thing. You can find it everywhere and as far as I'm concerned, it's moot anyway. Barring something cataclysmic, Barack's going to be the Democrat candidate and the next president.

So, to find something worth mentioning.

OK, one real issue and then a load of BS.

Where Do Your Tax Dollars Go? According to the National Priorities Project, 40 cents of each of your tax dollars go to the military and 4 cents go to education.

"Taxpayers can take stock of how the federal government spent their 2007 income
tax dollars: over 40 percent went towards military spending, while education
received just over 4 percent. This publication shows how the median income
family's 2007 income tax dollars were spent for every state and 200 cities,
towns and counties."

Here's a lot of right wing political cartoons. I can only guess that this is what passes for humor on the Right. It's bad enough that someone finds these funny, but it's really disturbing that people actually believe they're factual.

And now for that load of BS.

What a waste of artistic talent.
We've seen what seven years of leadership by the people who find this stuff relevant has gotten us. This is just fantasy land humor to validate the beliefs of the good, God fearing, Republicans whose fantasies are a necessary part of their lives.

I did not mean that Conservatives are generally stupid; I meant, that stupid persons are generally Conservative. I believe that to be so obvious and undeniable a fact that I hardly think any hon. Gentleman will question it.
