What about $70 billion per year subsidizing Wall Street banks. $38 billiion is subsidies to oil companies. $2.1 trillion stashed offshore to avoid US taxes. $153 billion per year to subsidize Mc Donalds & Walmart workers. $813 billion per year in military spending (4 to 5 time China AND 6 to 8 times Russia)

The Dance of Death - The ruling corporate elites no longer seek to build. They seek to destroy. They are agents of death. They crave the unimpeded power to cannibalize the country and pollute and degrade the ecosystem to feed an insatiable lust for wealth, power and hedonism. Wars are celebrated.
