Adjusting for inflation: The Marshal plan cost $115.3 billion The Louisiana Purchase:$217 billion The race to the moon: $237 billion The New Deal: $500 billion The Korean War: $454 billion The Iraq war: $597 billion The Savings and Loan bailout:$256 billion The Viet Nam war: $698 billion All of Nasa:$851 billion Add all of this together and it will not come close to what we taxpayers are on the hook for this financial crisis we are in. Have we lost our collective minds? Start looking up folks. I have never been a doomsday kind of person, but I never felt closer to heaven than I do today. Global terrorism, greed, stampedes at our local retail outlets etc. Imagine what it is going to be like when there is a total collapse of our economy. Its no wonder guns are flying off the shelves.
