Israel’s “Iron Dome” vs. Atari 2600 “Missile Command”

Why do they refer to a missile defense system as “Star Wars” when it’s actually a lot more like “Missile Command”?

This is Israel’s “Iron Dome” missile defense system. Turn your volume control pretty low for this:

And this is the video game “Missile Command” on the Atari 2600:

Anyway, I think all those liberals who mocked Ronald Reagan for proposing something like this owe him a huge apology.

President Obama spent $516,000 of taxpayers’ money on “Prom Week” video game

On September 22, 2008, candidate Obama said:

“I am not a Democrat who believes that we can or should defend every government program just because it’s there… We will fire government managers who aren’t getting results, we will cut funding for programs that are wasting your money and we will use technology and lessons from the private sector to improve efficiency across every level of government… The only way we can do all this without leaving our children with an even larger debt is if Washington starts taking responsibility for every dime that it spends.”

However, after he won the election, President Obama spent $516,000 of taxpayers’ money on a video game called “Prom Week.”

I guess this means that based on his own words, he doesn’t consider this spending to be “wasteful.”

This is one of the reasons why he wants to raise taxes?

I “hope” we “change” the person who is President in the upcoming election.
