I Wonder How Many Sets of Body Armor $500,00 Would Buy

Anyone see this article?

Five hundred thousand of our tax dollars paid for this flying commercial.

From the amounts these people are paying, it appears that, just for lower body armor, this money could have been spent to protect 500 soldiers in Iraq.

It could have purchased over 50,000 pairs of goggles.

How many vehicles it could have armored is unclear, and how many lives it could have saved in Iraq or Afghanistan is something to ponder. But, as our soldiers go without the proper equipment, Alaska Airlines has a newly painted airplane. How nice.
