Uncle Sam says you can gamble away your life
Let me see if I get this straight. We have 200 billion to spend killing Iraqi women and children and pay Halliburton to ship fuel to Iraq and subsidize the Afghan poppy business. We don’t have any money to help our most desperate citizens, you know the ones with cancer, MS, etc., pay for treatment. We do have this really great idea though. We are going to hold a lottery to see which of the lucky souls get to have a chance at life. If you don’t win the lottery then you will have to wait until 2006 for any help, if you live that long. What an utterly insane idea.
