I'm all for kicking a little terrorist ass.
However, our country seems to be spending a lot of money fighting wars overseas. Billions of dollars are being spent to maintain our troops in Afghanistan and Iraq. At the same time, education spending in this country is being cut.
Teachers are being laid off.
Class sizes are increasing.
Students are spending less time in the classroom due to furlough days.
Art and music programs are being cut.
We are going to pay the cost of our country's focus on military spending for a long time.
