Does anyone possess a clue as to why our U.S. government spends $12 billion every 30 days in Afghanistan and Iraq while 1.5 million of our citizens remain homeless and 13.4 million American children live in poverty?

“There are 770,000 homeless children enrolled in public education systems,” said a spokesperson at Homeless Support Network.

“On any given night there are 100,000 homeless veterans,” said the spokesperson at Homeless Support Network. “At least 3.5 million Americans experience homelessness each year.”

What doesn’t add up here? Answer: just about everything!

Our government has forced those two bogus wars upon our soldiers with terrible death and injury tolls for the past 10 years. Is it possible that they are not winning on purpose or that they can’t win because these wars are unwinnable? Does that make sense? Does it show rational thinking on the part of the military to urge President Obama to continue military operations in those two sandbox, backward and poverty stricken countries? If we can’t win in Afghanistan in 10 years in a country that doesn’t have a single tank, war plane or radar unit—what’s the point?

How can the government force taxpayers to pay $12 billion for two inane wars every month while millions of our citizens live in poverty?

With millions suffering in America, wouldn’t it make more sense to spend $12 billion a month on our own people? Wouldn’t it make sense to pull them out of poverty by offering housing, education and job training?

Exactly what is being accomplished in Iraq and Afghanistan? Answer: absolutely friggin’ nothing!
