Giant elephant in room

Why is it that we never read anything anywhere any more about to defense budget? This is the first thing that occurred to me when I saw this post about the new for brainwashing ... errr ... educating students on the dangers of social security.

Public Agenda said this week it will get a $500,000 grant to roll out a mini-curriculum at up to 500 colleges and universities focusing on the nation’s deteriorating financial situation. The National Academy of Public Administration and PETLab will get $325,000 to develop a game for college students focusing on “difficult fiscal issues like unsustainable entitlement programs, rising health care costs, and financing investments in alternative energy sources.”

Why is there no game educating students about the danger of electing a monkey as President and letting him appoint most of corporate America to his cabinet?
