Take a look at this weird video:
H/t Vigilant Citizen.
I went to the Republican National Committee website and, indeed, the GOP elephant logo has upside-down stars, otherwise called pentagrams!
See for yourself by going HERE.
The stars on the America flag are right side-up, so why does the Republican Party have upside-down stars in its logo?
Oh, by the way, Rupert Cornwall reports for the UK’s The Independent, June 30, 2011, that a study by Brown University’s Watson Institute for International Studies found that the cost of America’s War On Terror, begun by George W. Bush and continued by Obama, will surpass the cost of World War Two.
The $1.3 trillion officially appropriated on Capitol Hill is the tip of a spending iceberg. If other Pentagon outlays, interest payments on money borrowed to finance the wars, and the $400bn estimated to have been spent on the domestic “war on terror”, the total cost is already somewhere between $2.3 and $2.7 trillion. Add in future military spending and above all the cost of looking after veterans, disabled and otherwise and the total bill will be somewhere between $3.7 trillion and $4.4 trillion.
A 2008 study co-authored by the Harvard economist Linda Bilmes and Joseph Stiglitz, a former Nobel economics laureate, similarly concluded that the War On Terror would end up costing over $3 trillion. The difference is that America’s financial position has worsened considerably in the meantime, with a brutal recession and a federal budget deficit running at some $1.5 trillion annually, while healthcare and social security spending is set to soar as the population ages and the baby boomer generation enters retirement.
Worse still, unlike most of America’s previous conflicts, Iraq and Afghanistan have been financed almost entirely by borrowed money that sooner or later must be repaid. The total cost to America of its wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, plus the related military operations in Pakistan, is set to exceed $4 trillion – more than three times the sum so far authorised by Congress in the decade since the 9/11 attacks.
