Dude, where's my base?

The Pentagon has recently recommended the closure of 33 major domestic U.S. military bases and the realignment of 29 more, guaranteed to be a severe economic blow to many communities in the United States. Over the next 20 years the Pentagon estimates a savings of $50 billion. Too bad we can't afford those bases. We could have if we hadn't sent $200 billion, and still counting, to Iraq. Why don't we just send our taxes directly to Halliburton instead of the IRS and save some time? I can't say for sure but I'll bet there were more than a few voted for President Bush among those small business owners. Talk about voting against your own economic interests. Vote Bush who sends billions down the the rat hole we call Iraq and then close U.S. military bases because we spent our money in Iraq. Nice symmetry.
