$2,083,333.33 a minute

The occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan are costing us roughly $12,000,000,000 a week, which works out to $2,083,333.33 a minute. Every fucking minute of every fucking day. (1,440 minutes per day, 5,760 minutes per week)

I don't know about you, but I sure could find something useful to do with $2,083,333.33 a minute. Feed the hungry. TAKE CARE OF OUR VETERANS. Schools. Bridges. Health insurance. TAKE CARE OF OUR VETERANS. Social programs. SCHIP.

Instead, we continue to pour money down the rabbit hole. BAE, Lockeed Martin, SIAC, GE, Raytheon, Grumman Northup, Parsons, Halliburton, Blackwater etc. etc.

What is going on is shameful. And wrong.
