We are now simply becoming the worlds fastest printing machine....who gives a damn if no one has money to pay taxes if bread is $1,000,000 a loaf or gas is $100K per gallon.....

The government announced Thursday that it had spent $80.1 billion on intelligence activities over the past 12 months, disclosing for the first time not only the amount spent by civilian intelligence agencies but also by the military.

The so-called National Intelligence Program, run by the CIA and other agencies that report to the Director of National Intelligence, cost $53.1 billion in fiscal 2010, which ended Sept. 30, while the Military Intelligence Program cost an additional $27 billion.

Spending on intelligence for 2010 far exceeded the $42.6 billion spent on the Department of Homeland Security and the $48.9 billion spent on the State Department and foreign operations.

The cost of the Military Intelligence Program has always remained classified. But as undersecretary of defense for intelligence, James R. Clapper Jr., now the director of national intelligence, secured approval to release the figure.

"I pushed through and got Secretary [Robert M.] Gates to approve revelation of the Military Intelligence Program budget," Clapper told the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence in July.

Why would a loaf of bread cost 10x as much as a gallon of gas?

I sure look forward to that $1 million loaf of bread, because then my house, that I'm paying 2.5% interest on the mortgage (tax adjusted), will be worth $600 Billion!

I will just trade my house for 600,000 loaves of bread, soak them in water and use them as bricks to build a new house.  Then I will eat my way to a lower square footage house to save on heating bills!
