Then and Now

Its funny how msotly every adverstisement during World War Two revolved around the cause and how to support it. These days we keep seeing prices of everything rise but it is kind of kept under the radar that the prices are rising because the dollar keeps losing its value. we are at the end of our run as a superpower for so many reasons. Our military is scattered to all parts of the world, our deficit is over 240 billion and keeps rising and while we keep giving aid to other countries with money we do not have, China and Saudi Arabia will soon want to cash in on buying our debt. So signs like the one in this blog will never be seen again because not everyone believes in the Iraq cause and it just seems to keep costing us more and more money we do not have. when did the U.S. become an eighteen year old who just got thier first credit card and went to town on it.

An interesting post.

The unity on the homefront during WWII is a distant memory. Today's war is dividing the public and the media. One key difference between WWII and the GWOT is that level of sacrifice that is being demanded of the general public is much lower. Paying for the war without raising taxes postpones the debt to the future and avoids unpopular sacrifice today.
