You can NOT make a rational statement that Butter cost more than Guns. It is fiscally impossible.

Two war items alone prove my point: At $45 million per aircraft for the JSF, and the cost of $144.4 BILLIION (to date) for the Iraq debacle.

Butter produced in the US: 145 million pounds, at the national avrage of 1.33= 1,928,500,000 (or 2 Billion).

So, unless the US Government has bought ALL Known supplies of Butter for the next 15 years, WE DO NOT SPEND MORE ON BUTTER THAN GUNS.

Bush is a Disaster.

If he's the best we've got, continue to call me a FORMER Republican.
