    Spending money on Christmas decorations is a personal decision not a national priority and is therefore nobody’s business. What is more shocking are the billions spent on global warming research each year and the billions spent on the UN each year. Think of how we could re allocate those wasted federal spending programs towards homelessness.

    Think of how many tens of billions we waste on corporate subsidies and the hundreds of billions wasted on the military industrial complex. Money that could be invested on education and infrastructure, just think about that.
