What Good Is It?
In the fifty years since Lyndon Johnson's “War on Poverty” began, we've spent $22 TRILLION (in inflation adjusted dollars) and have made NO HEADWAY in improving the “poverty” picture. Can that be? Can our politicians be so incompetent that they spend $22 TRILLION dollars and accomplish NOTHING? Absolutely! The thing they're good at is spending money, not keeping track of HOW it is spent. Just as in the “war on drugs,” after all the money is spent, NOTHING has been accomplished. The same number of people are still “in poverty” or doing drugs as there were before they started your “big plans.” This is why I say our politicians are INCOMPETENT. Because all their “big plans” ALWAYS come to naught, after spending TRILLIONS of our dollars. (American Thinker)
