An Unseemly Asymmetry

This is not how I want my money spent!
The federal government is on track to spend $3,982 this year…with nine extra zeros. Four trillion rounded. There are seven key components of this figure which, in total, comprise approximately 89% of federal spending. You will probably not be amazed to learn this 89% has practically nothing to do with what you might imagine the function of domestic government to be. Here they are in descending (to hell) order.

Social Security: $934
War: $629
Medicare: $646
Medicaid: $545
Welfare: $298
Federal pensions: $267
Interest on the debt: $264

Those figures (which are nearly, but not unerringly precise) are, of course, in billions; and they represent indescribably succulent fruit for America’s cunning tribal foxes. So let’s discuss what these vast canyons of cash represent in identity terms–which is to say the only terms that matter in any petri-dish society.
