It is not the magnitude, it is the principle. Do not tell me that it's only 7¢ when it is MY 7¢ taken against my will. Besides, this was also one example out of thousands of totally wasted giveaways that have NO legitimate basis. At least the funds wasted on Iraq have some connection to a legitimate governtmental function (defense). I'm going to stop here, lest this become a political thread (I really hate to pollute it further as the original thread was and is very good).
