Uncle Sam and his Shrink

After three sleepless nights, Uncle Sam goes to see his psychiatrist.

On the couch, he tells the Doctor, “I spend all my money on wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Libya. I have no money left to spend on highways, social-security, hospitals, schools and libraries at home.”

“My Pentagon budget is growing exponentially, year after year, while I lay off teachers and firefighter for lack of funds.”

“What is WRONG with me, Doc?”

The doctor answers; “You, clearly, suffer from a deep-seated military-industrial COMPLEX!”
