Pointless wars and financial support for pariah states.
STUPIDITY would be high on my list
Greed would not be far behind either
All of the above + writing royal checks that our intentions never meant to cash.
Two ridiculous wars and unprecidented unemployment payouts as a result of a contrived bank scamming debacle... oh, yes, All begun by Bush to be corrected by Obama, hopefully
people on the gravy train. I have said for years, only stupid people. the vast majority of normal workers pay thru their taxes, all those who want free housing, free cell phones, free food, free medical care fee day care and free free free.. guess i should quit and get all this free stuff
Wars and bank bailouts don't come cheap.
