    Yes.. But do you not think its more important that life goes on like normal and that people start to live again, and the country start to live and grow again, rather than just sit and fear terrorism and use sooooo much energy and thought on that?
    I am definetely sure that part of the economic failure comes from the over-focus on terrorism and the detriment of for example economic policies, and other policies as well.

    Look, you have demonstrated once again that you have no idea what is happening in America. The situation here ain't as you have presented to be. We ain't just sitting in fear of terrorism.

    Why do you insist on posting these completely (and I am starting to think, deliberately) false descriptions of the American people?

    That you are definitely sure of such most certainly disqualifies you from ever talking about America's economy or defense.

    You are perhaps now the most intellectually dishonest and anti-American hack here. You repeatedly demonstrate that you have no idea what America is or anything about her people. From describing her people as being quick to yank out the victim card to now describing them as simply sitting around in fear of terrorism...you have no idea. That you insist in posting these gross caricatures of the American in addition to your whining about the American political system and economic organization, you're revealing your anti-American attitude.

    Not necessarily, but it has been.. This last administration clearly hasnt focused on the economy for example. And it clearly has focused a lot on terrorism.

    How can you not agree with that?

    Not really, the economy has collapsed while the total military and security spending of the US government is well above 850 billion dollars each year. (compared to far less before, something like a total of 400-500 billion)..

    $481.4 billion (+12.1%) - Department of Defense
    $145.2 billion (+45.8%) - Global War on Terror
    $39.4 billion (+18.7%) - Department of Veterans Affairs
    $34.3 billion (+7.2%) - Department of Homeland Security

    Plus Iraq and Afghanistan which amounted to something like 180 billion in 2008(budget).
