I'm continually staggered at how taxpayers money is spent without care. Is there a jurisdiction in the world where they spend money with due care?

What do you expect in a country where the military-industrial complex is the basis for its economy?

 

Eisenhower's farewell address was the final public speech of Dwight D. Eisenhower as the 34th President of the United States, delivered in a television broadcast on January 17, 1961. Perhaps it is best known for advocating that the nation guard against the potential influence of the military–industrial complex, a term he is credited with coining.

 

The speech also expressed concerns about planning for the future and the dangers of massive spending, especially deficit spending; the prospect of the domination of science through Federal funding and, conversely, the domination of science-based public policy by what he called a "scientific-technological elite". Despite his military background, he warned the nation with regard to the corrupting influence of what he describes as the "military-industrial complex".

It was only recently that I found out that for much of my life, the US spent more on its military than the rest of the world put together. Why didn't I know? did you guys?
