Government: Money better spent in Africa
Brad Pitt was on the news. He was trying to do something about the orphans in Africa. Its a noble cause. There are 20 million orphans there. If we had spent our money helping them out instead of fighting in Iraq (what is it we are there for? I forget), we could have spent $10,000 to help each child. Granted, it would have been hard for our government to get it to the needy without enriching other more oppressive government thugs, but I would have preferred it.
At least, 1,700 of our precious youth would still be alive. Yes, I remember 9/11, that was when 1.5 days worth of Americans were aborted in one hour.
