US Military Budget- over $100 for every man, woman, and child on earth


Stunning to think of. The US military budget in 2012, which does not count military related costs borne by other agencies which effectively double or even triples the number) was $729 Billion. For a world population of 7 Billion.

So the US spends somewhere betweeen $100 and $300 for defense related costs for every single human being on the planet today.

Or even more stunningly- anywhere between $2,321 and just under $7,000 for every single man, woman and child living in the United States.

Insanity.

About drugsandotherthings

I am a criminal. Because I have used cannabis and psychedelics extensively. I have tried many other drugs, but never cared for the uppers, downers, or dissociatives. I love craft beer, and absinthe, but don't care much for alcohols effects- which quite frankly, are boring and dangerous. Science is my religion. I am in my 40's, and have travelled extensively. And often forced myself outside of my confort zone. I am employed, a respected member of my communtiy, an animal lover, an environmentalist, a political junkie, and the realities I have experienced continue to push me further to the left of the political spectrum.
