Should we be spending tax dollars on bombs?
The average public state college tuition for the 2017-2018 school year is approximately $9,970.
On April 9, 2018, the United States, Great Britain and France launched an attack on Syria in retaliation for a chemical weapons attack on civilians that all evidence indicates never happened. The U.S. alone launched 85 missiles and bombs that in total cost approximately $139,570,000, not counting the aircraft, ships, fuel, personnel, etc. to deliver them. This equates to 13,999 years of state college education.
It is unconscionable and outrageous to spend tax dollars on bombs and attacks on sovereign nations as students drown in debt trying to secure a college degree and veterans lie homeless on our streets. Keep the taxes at home and use them to the benefit society and the human race instead of for killing innocent men, women and children. Richard C. Shelley Bessemer Avenue
