The Watch

The Watch is concerned about the increasing pressure towards feudalism in the United States from corporations, social regressives, warmongers, and the media. We also are concerned with future history concerning our current times, as non-truths which are “widely reported” become the basis for completely false narratives.

Having Fun with the Cost of War

The National Priorities Project has put together an Iraq War Cost Clock, which shows how much this stupid folly has cost us (currently about $250 billion), and also depressingly/amusingly shows what other things we might have done with that money (like fund over 12 million four year college educations, or fight global poverty for 10 years). You can also view the costs and opportunity costs for each state and some communities. Yippee!
