Billions and Billions

It's a rather obvious point which has already been made dozens of times, but when you look at all of the money our government has blown in the last several years, from Our Glorious Iraqi Adventure to bailing out every financial institution, and you start to think of how that money could have been used more productively, it gets a wee bit frustrating.

I know Very Serious People tell me that the $700 billion bailout won't really cost $700 billion because we'll get most of it back. Hah!
