If you had three hundred dollar bills in your wallet, would you notice if one wasn’t there when you counted it while you were going to pay for your take out?
Yeah? Well, imagine if you had a flatbed semi stacked with hundred dollar bills. That’d be a LOT. You could be forgiven if you misplaced a bill or two. Probably flew off in the wind and now some lucky little punk just bought a bunchy of Star Wars cards, or something.
That’s a LOT of cash. Can you even imagine how much bank you ended up with?
But wait. Did I say ended up with? Sheeeeeeit. Your friend just pulled up with ANOTHER rig filled with stacks of hundreds. WTF!?! That’s a LOT of hundreds, now. We better start stackin’ them up mad-fast before the next shipment comes in.
That’s THREE buildings of stacked hundreds. That’s not even an insane amount of dough. It’s like cray-cray bucks. Unimaginable, right?
Well, if you think that’s a lot, it doesn’t even pale in comparison wit5h the amount of skyscraper-volume of cash that it would take to stack hundreds to equal EIGHT POINT FIVE TRILLION DOLLARS. This is what THAT would look like.
How would you notice if a hundred dollar bill in that mess went missing?
You sure as hell wouldn’t. But, if you lost the entire insane stack of dough, now, that would be as insane as the size of this stack of money. That’s what happened, no joke, no shit.
The US Department of Defense lost this much money they were entrusted with, and have NO IDEA what happened to it. Well, some people know, and they are likely rich beyond imagination. But, there is no record of any of it.
There hadn’t been word one in the “Mainstream Media” about this. There haven’t been investigations or arrests for this incomprehensible waste and fraud that our military has pissed away. Study about this. Know it. And, demand that the FIRST question asked of any US Presidential candidate be: “You’re all so into cutting government spending and wiping out fraud with transparency and accountability, well where the HELL did this 8.5 Trillion Dollars go and who hangs for it?”
It’s not like it’s the now quaint $1.5 Trillion wasted on the failed F-35 project (VIDEO). Hell, I can pop off five massive scandals where the Pentagon has pissed away our federal tax dollars through criminal waste and fraud, but, this dwarfs that in a way God couldn’t describe.
Learn about this and share this so EVERYONE knows to know it. Enter this into political discussions and make it the first thing you question your legislators and would-be leaders about until the MSM chooses to do their damn job and cover it.
This is worlds bigger than the GOP financial collapse and their unpaid-for preemptive war of aggression. PLEASE help give this important story life.
