15. Somewhat similar to GOP controlled Ohio
Not to diminish the suffering and obvious need to help the people of Afghanistan, but in some ways we're not too far off.

Let's hope the Dems in Congress can force the blivet to focus more funds on Afghanistan instead of Iraq.

Here in Ohio, the GOP uses religion the same way - to placate the masses. They've made heavy cuts to education and have funneled huge chunks of the education budget to right wing religious corporations that open for-profit charter schools. Those warlords then give an inferior education to students and funnel millions in profits back into the GOP via campaign contributions.

Conversely, Ohioans don't have an option for a lucrative cash crop to make up for the loss of good paying jobs that the GOP has shipped overseas. They're stuck working at Walmart.
