No, I don't know. Tell us about the "hidden cost".
If you need a reference, here is a reputable record of actual spending by the government:

There are no "hidden cost" here. It's the actual total money the government spent.
So, tell us about that supposed "hidden cost" lie.
How the US public was defrauded by the hidden cost of the Iraq war

George Bush sold the war as quick and cheap; it was long and costly. Even now, the US is paying billions to private contractors

The most striking fact about the cost of the war in Iraq has been the extent to which it has been kept "off the books" of the government's ledgers and hidden from the American people. This was done by design. A fundamental assumption of the Bush administration's approach to the war was that it was only politically sustainable if it was portrayed as near-costless to the American public and to key constituencies in Washington. The dirty little secret of the Iraq war – one that both Bush and the war hawks in the Democratic party knew, but would never admit – was that the American people would only support a war to get rid of Saddam Hussein if they could be assured that they would pay almost nothing for it.

The most obvious way in which the true cost of this war was kept hidden was with the use of supplemental appropriations to fund the occupation. By one estimate, 70% of the costs of wars in Iraq and Afghanistan between 2003 and 2008 were funded with supplemental or emergency appropriations approved outside the Pentagon's annual budget. These appropriations allowed the Bush administration to shield the Pentagon's budget from the cuts otherwise needed to finance the war, to keep the Pentagon's pet programs intact and to escape the scrutiny that Congress gives to its normal annual regular appropriations.

With the Iraq war treated as an "off the books" expense, the Pentagon was allowed to keep spending on high-end military equipment and cutting-edge technology. In fiscal terms, it was as if the messy wars in Afghanistan and Iraq were never happening.

More fundamentally, the Bush administration masked the cost of the war with deficit spending to ensure that the American people would not face up to its costs while President Bush was in office. Despite their recent discovery of outrage over the national debt, the Republicans followed the advice of Vice-President Dick Cheney that "deficits don't matter" and spent freely on domestic programs throughout the Bush years. The Bush administration encouraged the American people to keep spending and "enjoy life", while the government paid for the occupation of Iraq on a credit card they hoped never to have to repay.

There is so much to be garnered from this data, so much to be read into and from...

If the Magic Negro is perceived by young people to be f*cking the "Rich" then he's doing a good job.

When the same group finds out that he's actually f*cking *THEM* then they quickly decide that he needs to be booted from office.

In any case, educating the public in what reality really is becomes crucial when dealing with azzholes like the Magic Negro.

Don't let the Liar-In-Chief get away with his lying. Call him on it.
Of course, popular media should be called on it, too, for lying about the Liar.

Martin Bashir Resigns From MSNBC
by Tommy Christopher |
2:35 pm, December 4th, 2013
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, in a statement to Mediaite Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways.
Here’s the statement to Mediaite, from Martin Bashir, via email:
After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday.
Upon further reflection, and after meeting with the President of MSNBC, I have tendered my resignation. It is my sincere hope that all of my colleagues, at this special network, will be allowed to focus on the issues that matter without the distraction of myself or my ill-judged comments.
I deeply regret what was said, will endeavor to work hard at making constructive contributions in the future and will always have a deep appreciation for our viewers – who are the smartest, most compassionate and discerning of all television audiences. I would also wish to express deepest gratitude to my immediate colleagues, and our contributors, all of whom have given so much of themselves to our broadcast.’
MSNBC will be issuing a statement shortly.
Update: MSNBC released Bashir’s statement, plus the following statement from MSNBC President Phil Griffin:
“Martin Bashir resigned today, effective immediately. I understand his decision and I thank him for three great years with msnbc. Martin is a good man and respected colleague – we wish him only the best.”
Oprah stuck her fat foot in her mouth, too. Madcow is rumbling about the Magic Negro - her former Savior.

Now let's wait for Piers Morgan to step off the cliff, too.

Please don't tell me that's what you teach to kids.
There is no such thing as written approval from the other two branches of government, you fucking moron.
"Commander in Chief" is a military rank. It does not apply outside the Armed Forces. In fact, it does not apply within the civillian workforce in the Department of Defense. Within the Armed Forces, the only orders anyone is obligated to obey is "lawful orders". It is unlawful for anyone to give any order to any member of the Armed Forces that violates the Constitution.
Why?
Because the only oath anyone in the Armed Forces takes is to the Constitution.
NOBODY ever took an oath to the President, you fucking moron.

Please get an education if you're going to pretend to be a teacher. You are a great example of why our education system is the collosal failure it is.
