One More War, One More War: It's a Killing Machine Economic Boom

Do you wonder how the government slips in those supposedly bullish data points about the economy, when everywhere you go you hear average people talking about how bad things are? Answer: The American military is in a major growth mode. According to the Commerce Department, on average, personal income dropped 1.8% in the U.S. in 2009. BUT, not all cities faced a downturn in personal income. Here are the cities that were the top gainers in personal income in 2009: Jacksonville NC up 11.9% [Home of U.S. Marine Corps Base: Fort Lejeune] Fayetville, NC up 4.8% [Home of U.S. Army Base: Ft Bragg] Manhattan, KS up 4.8% [ Home of U.S. Army Base: Fort Riley] Kileen-Temple-Fort Hood TX up 4.6% [Home of U.S. Army Base: Ft Hood] Cumberland, MD up 4.4% [No obvious military connection] Lawton, OK up 4.2% [Home of U.S. Army Base: Ft Sill] Elizabethtown, KY up 4.2% [Home of military installation at Fort Knox]

Yes, please.  One more war.  Eurasia, doesn't matter as long as we get that one war, the one that is going to put the last nail in the coffin of the Empire.  However, if a war is not feasible - for some ungodly reason - let's bring back the Republicans for one more term.  4 more years of that will do more damage than another world war.
