So at this point, as you might imagine, my head is spinning. Yes, there was lots of "Political Theater" as predicted. Both sides attempted to act civilly for the benefit of the TV Cameras as they emphasized the same old "Talking Points". Simple "Catchphrases" that market research indicates might resonate with the American people. "Keep it simple for the Masses. They're not too bright, you know." Seemed to be the message of the day. As a former oratory and debate student. I find this new scientific methodology appalling.
Which brings us back to what I've been saying all along. With the money we've been wasting on the Useless Wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and now Pakistan, Cost would not be an issue.
As I've pointed out in previous blog posts, and as President Eisenhower once predicted. "Unlimited Funding of Our Military Industrial Complex Will Bankrupt The Nation."
Those Wars, along with our Numerous Permanent Military Bases And Installations Around the World are Not Only Draining the Treasury but Doing More Harm Than Good by Actually Creating More Terrorists.
