The High Price of Bullets
I just read today that the U.S. is expected to pay $440 billion for oil imports in 2008. To contrast, our national trade deficit last year was about $700 billion. Wow, over half of our trade imbalance is based on our lust to pollute the earth.
I alse heard that 40% of our oil imports comes from terrorist countries.
Let's see...40%...So, for every $20 you spend on gas, $8 goes to a terrorist. At $40 for a box of 50, that means you just bought enough bullets for a terrorist to kill 10 American soldiers.
Think about it.
