    The education system has a much higher overall ROI, but it’s unfortunately spread across all of society and takes a generation to actually pay out.

    By contrast, putting money into the Military Industrial Congressional Complex pays off consistently, predictably, and in a manner that channels the returns straight back into the investors’ accounts.

    It’s just simple economics.

      Yeah but educated Americans don’t like israel so AIPAC wins double by lobby to defund education and giving themselves bombs.
