For Want of a Nail, The Shoe Was Lost...
If you've ever wondered how it's possible for a country to spend over $420 BILLION dollars on "defense" without providing adequate life-saving equipment--or for that matter, BULLETS--for soldiers, then check this out.

What gets scant mention is, of course, outright fraud, but I suppose in this day and age it's about as much as you can expect from the lapdog media.
Meanwhile, New Orleans is about to get another dose of martial law following the shooting deaths of five teenagers late Friday/early Saturday. Jeffrey has a final, last post up before getting waist-deep, if not neck-deep into a good cause--asking if more than the shootings prompted the governor's decision. Of course, he's just kidding...or maybe kidding on the square.
