Well, the other shoe just dropped.
Berkeley Unified School District just slashed its budget by almost one-third.
So much for educating our children.
Meanwhile, the United States of America, land of the free, easily came up with the mega-bucks necessary to kill thousands of women and children in Afghanistan (probably by raiding our social security reserves).
As we slide into giving this country's wealth over to total military armament, please remember Hitler, Mussolini and Tojo (the original evil axis):
While they were out trying to conquer the world, the German, Italian and Japanese people slowly slid into deprivation, devastation and want.
Now that Bush, Ashcroft and Rumsfeld are trying to convince us to live on munitions stockpiling and media hype also, it's time to ask ourselves -- what will OUR post-war world be like?
When planning our future, always remember this simple home truth: WAR CREATES NOTHING. WAR IS A HUNGRY BEAST WHO DESTROYS ITS KEEPERS AS WELL AS ITS PREY.
