Death, Taxes, Terrorism... bullshit

These two posts should make everyone wonder why?

... So these two post found on Boing Boing (among other sites) should make us all wonder why our tax money is spent like it is.

The first is a simplified chart of what americans should realy be scared of by amount of deaths a year (sources listed on site).

Part of the article: "Comparing official mortality data with the number of Americans who have been killed inside the United States by terrorism since the 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma reveals that scores of threats are far more likely to kill an American than any terrorist -- at least, statistically speaking.

In fact, your appendix is more likely to kill you than al-Qaida is." Article

The next is a great visual chart our federal budget, just click

What do you think?

If nothing else look where all our money goes... some people would say its to keep the status quo... is it realy worth keeping.. can't that money be spent better?

Hell If I know... it just seems like we spend more money keeping people from what we have and it would be cheaper to spend it on making EVERYONE happy...

Cleaner Energy
Combat Disease
Fight Hunger
Stop Homelessness
Stop Child Labor
Rouge Asteroids

ok, enough.. time to slip back into the apathy that gets me through my days (and everyone elses).
