America supports you by mispending money.

I'll make this one short. I'm just saddened enough by this that I don't know what to say, really. To make a long story short, the Department of Defense has created a website where you can get a free dogtag that says "America Supports You." The fact that they're spending the money on the servers, shipping and tag itself rather than on buying even a small amount of armor is insane. I know, the site isn't likely that expensive, but if even one more soldier was properly equipped, wouldn't that be worth it?

Note: to avoid increasing the Google PageRank of this sick site, I have used the rel="nofollow" attribute. I encourage anyone else linking there to do so as well.
