The White House has ordered the deployment of a missle defense system, despite the fact that, you know, it doesn’t work. Actually, it’s worked 62.5% of the time in controlled tests; who knows what kind of success rate that would lead to if it ever had to be used. As anyone who has followed this site for awhile knows, there are a lot of people smarter than me who don’t think it can ever be deployed in an effective manner. I don’t know if I’d go that far, but I know we’re spending billions of dollars to roll out a worthless system. Not to go all bleeding heart on you, but as long as we’re just going to waste money, why not use it to feed the starving? If it will make the White House feel better to pay defense contractors to distribute the food, that’ll work for me, too.
