"A million dollars appropriated for highway construction would create two to three times as many jobs as a million dollars appropriated for Pentagon weapons procurement, so the jobs argument is ultimately specious." http://www.truth-out.org/goodbye-all-reflections-gop-operative-who-left-cult/1314907779

I have been upset, exasperated, and pissed off at the US Government (particularly Republicans) for some time now. But this article and in particular, the quote above, puts the majority of it into sharp relief.

I keep trying to create a post that states what I think is wrong and how to fix it, but I can't, it becomes just pure incoherence. :(

I hate feeling this powerless and watching my country devolve into what I hate around me. I want to do something, but I do not have the millions of dollars available to me to even make it past the (metaphorical) front door.
