Cheers and Jeers: Diet Coke FRIDAY!

Let's think about the following blurb taken straight from the KOS:
"JEERS to what George Bush hath wrought. When it's all said and done, every American family will end up paying $46,000 to fund the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Aren't ya glad you got that $300 refund check back in '01?"
So I paid a combined $46k for the past eight years worth of the war on terror? Now it's not easy to find an accurate number on the number of Taliban, Al Qaeda, and Insurgents we've killed during this same time period, but I think we can conservatively estimate the number around 500,000. That's less then $0.10 per terrorist!


Where do I sign up for the next $50k?

Your getting an even better deal considering this number is grossly inflated and misrepresented.

Well said, Chuck. I'm ready to chip in some more for that return as well. And I have always maintained that I'd much rather be fighting them over there than here. I guess a lot of folks will only believe the necessity when we have the radical Muslims shooting people in the streets of LA or NY.

Heh. Sign up for another $50,000 or $100,000, even! If the cost becomes a burden, maybe we can all get a bailout from the feds ;)

No, the dems only pay for worthless stuff (see $25B for $7B of market cap.)
