Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.

Sarah Palin

She is defending oil subsidies of four billion dollars as "a drop in the bucket" while advocating for NPR to be cut because it is too expensive. Four billion dollars is 1,200 times the amount of funding that NPR gets.

I call bullshit.
