Nothing conceptual here. Just another disastrous economic fact to report. Dear Leader's war on terror is now costing $9.8 billion per month. That's right. Nearly $10 billion a month.
Best current predictions for the total cost? One fucking trillion dollars.
Scott Wallsten, a resident scholar at the conservative American Enterprise Institute, put the direct cost to the United States at $212 billion as of last September and estimates a "global cost" of $500 billion to date with another $500 billion possible, with most of the total borne by the United States.

So my question to wingers everywhere: What the hell were you thinking when you supported this criminal aggression? Oh, I forgot. You weren't thinking.
