Was That With A “T”?

I have written many times about the waste and the out right loss of funds budgeted for the Pentagon…..the latest article just makes my case for me…..

Twenty-one trillion dollars.

The Pentagon’s own numbers show that it can’t account for $21 trillion. Yes, I mean trillion with a “T.” And this could change everything.

But I’ll get back to that in a moment.

There are certain things the human mind is not meant to do. Our complex brains cannot view the world in infrared, cannot spell words backward during orgasm and cannot really grasp numbers over a few thousand. A few thousand, we can feel and conceptualize.

  1. Someone’s enjoying a few nice holidays, that’s for sure.

  2. Good perspective. The entire GDP of Australia goes missing. Do you think the Aussies would care? They’d probably re-instate the Death Penalty. Death by gator-squad for whoever involved.

    Jesus! If I “couldn’t find” (aka stole) even just my share of that money…I’d probably spend the rest of my life in prison. The Pentagon? They get a huge funding increase.
