Rejoice, for Robo-Soldier Is Here

Your tax dollars at work. Doing what? Perhaps you thought you were paying taxes to feed the poor, create and upgrade infrastructure, fund public education, and otherwise provide for the general welfare.

Actually, you are mainly funding the war machine, and now you are buying a new way to kill people: the Robo-Soldier.

The rationale seems to be that using robots will save the lives of American soldiers. But we could save a lot more lives and a lot more money — apparently each robot costs you $230,000 — by stopping the war machine.
