Now of course Afghanistan is the "good" war therefore that has to be added back onto the 13.1 trillion debt so looks to me like your outrage is misguided. By the way I had three family members in Iraq and they believe we did the right thing, but nothing is going to change your mind.
    Fortunately, my people did not lose their lives, nor were they maimed for for the rest of their lives as thousands of our troops did unnecessarily. You are also underestimating the financial cost as well, because you are not including the trillion it will take to pay to replace the munitions used and to provide care for the thousands that were maimed and injured, and you are not including the decade long cost of a military larger than needed for defense. The experts have put the cost at somewhere near $3 trillion dollars for our so called war on terror.

    As for the 4 trillion, the 2009, 2010, 2011 deficits total 4 trillion dollars. You can find out by going to the U.S. Treasury site and look at the budgets.
    I not going to attempt to prove something you made up. Either you can back up your claim, or you can't.

    See, I try and help you out, I link to what Buffett actually said, and yet you continue to not read it. Perhaps you can show me where in his editorial he said the word "secretary".

    the point is Buffett won't say what she makes so we have no clue if he is being honest

    the average secretary in Omaha makes far less than the amount needed for him to be truthful.

    The actual budgets and deficits back up my claim, you offer your opinions which you pass off as fact. I will take the Treasury data over your opinion.

    No, the point is Buffett did not mention his secretary. The point is you are arguing against something you have obviously not read. The point is you are using bad logic to argue against something you imagine some one else said, but they really didn't.
