Makes Sense to Me

Well, not so much anymore.  Now the government doesn't give a shit how much it spends.

Boudreaux,the smoothest-talking Cajun in the Louisiana National Guard, 
got called up to active duty. Boudreaux's first assignment was in a 
military induction center.

Because he was a good talker, they assigned him the duty of advising new 
recruits about government benefits, especially the GI insurance to which 
they were entitled. The officer in charge soon noticed that Boudreaux 
was getting a 99% sign-up rate for the more expensive supplemental form 
of GI insurance. This was remarkable, because it cost these low-income 
recruits $30.00 per month for the higher coverage, compared to what the 
government was already providing at no charge.

The officer decided he'd sit in the back of the room at the next 
briefing and observe Boudreaux's sales pitch.

Boudreaux stood up before the latest group of inductees and said, "If 
you has da normal GI insurans an' you goes to Afghanistan an' gets 
youself killed, da govment' pays you benefishery $20,000.

If you takes out da suppmental insurans, which cost you only t'irty 
dollars a munt, den da governmen' gots ta pay you benefishery $400,000!

"Now," Boudreaux concluded, "which bunch you tink dey gonna send ta 
Afghanistan first?
