most excellent, but you know those who think a different way...you know those who think it is not up to the government or other people to look after those who don't want to work or those too irresponsible to save and live right will say:

but because of the war millions of americans have jobs in munitions factories. Millions of low income uneducated young people have jobs in iraq right now, because of the war our businesses are earning profits for their shareholders with the rebuilding contracts, because of the war the price of oil is up and that gives our oil companies the incentive to go about the world developing new reserves that at lower prices wouldn't have been economical to develop.

yes the price of war swings both ways and I think there needs to be some rethinking of which way we as a global village want to profit.

Excellent post, Kim!

When you break it down into hard number, the reality becomes more sobering than ever.

I agree with absolute.
there are always other ways to provide jobs.
