- summary: Fox's John Stossel criticizes politicians for being careless with "other people's money". To his credit, the $700 billion military budget is the second item he mentions ("growing entitlements" are, of course, first), but then he immediately proceeds to ridicule a series of absolutely trivial expenditures, the largest of which is 0.0002% of the $700B originally mentioned and most of which are probably quite worthwhile investments of public money (including the bicycle helmets, which probably save money overall).
