Over 800 contractors (mercenaries) killed in Iraq since war began
Saw it on the news today. That puts the total American death toll for the war close to 4000. Meanwhile, the companies that hire these contractors make out like bandits with the cash, also known as our tax dollars. Blood and treasure. It's the new American way. And yet millions of people can't afford health insurance, college, houses, or even a decent meal.

Thanks Republicans! I'm sure that Jesus is really smiling down upon you.
