“Death And Budgets” by David Brooks (TIMES, 7/15/11)


In Brooklyn, New York, where I grew up, when exasperated by fools or villains, we could tell them to drop dead. One wonders when this so-called “moderate conservative” will discuss the deaths of the young Americans being sacrificed in Afghanistan and Iraq?

 

Of course, it is true that if more sick people would commit suicide, it would reduce the budget. If more morons did the same, it would surely improve the quality of life in the United States.

 

When Brooks examines U.S. military budgets as closely as he scrutinizes welfare spending, he may gain credibility as a media commentator.
