    Freedom of the Press?

    Here is another grim statistic that will probably not be mentioned to students attending government k through 12 schools.

    Yeah. How about that?
    #47 in the world for freedom of the press, but we are still #1 in the military field.
    We know how to kill people whether they deserve it or not.
    Is that something to be proud of?

    Our priorities are definitely screwed up. I have always said that a Swiss style defense (but without a draft) would be the best way to go. For one thing it would cost a tiny fraction of what we are currently paying for the honor of being the world's policeman. Who is going to attack us? Canada? Mexico? Get real.

    Antiwar.com just ran a piece on Swiss defense. It makes a timely supplement to my previous comment about implementing Swiss style defense in America.
