This is too much!
Bush to request $50 billion more for Iraq war: report
Wed Aug 29, 2007
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President George W. Bush is preparing to ask Congress for as much as $50 billion in additional funding for the war in Iraq, The Washington Post reported on Wednesday, citing a White House official.
The request signals increasing White House confidence that it can fend off mounting congressional pressure to begin withdrawing U.S. troops from Iraq, the Post reported.
The additional funds would come on top of about $460 billion in the fiscal 2008 defense budget and $147 billion in a pending supplemental bill to fund the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the Post said.
Is that idiot in the white house and his dick kidding? WTF?
When anyone so much as says national health care plan, the repubs scream “it will be too expensive!”
When anyone says anything about repairing our crumbling infrastructure, the repubs scream “it will be too expensive!”
When anyone says anything about increasing federal aid to our schools, the repubs scream “it will be too expensive!”
When it comes to this:
MONEY IS NO OBJECT TO THOSE IDIOTS IN washingtOOn! The dems will play all kinds of games and dramas, but they will fund the additional $50 billion. The two parties of the apocalypse are fully united in their support for continuing this disaster of a war. There is already $500 billion in the FY2008 military budget about to be voted on and passed. Plus they will add yet another $100 billion or so in a few months. Besides the dead and wounded, the legacy of the bush crime family is this:
The highest national debt in the history of our country. At a time when the sub prime mortgage fiasco is forcing more people to live like this:
Then we get this outrage! $12 million dollars left to a dog:
Helmsley leaves $12 million for her dog
Wed Aug 29, 2007
NEW YORK (Reuters) – Real estate billionaire Leona Helmsley left $12 million in her will for her dog Trouble but cut out two of her four grandchildren entirely.
Helmsley, the “Queen of Mean” who was famously quoted as saying “only the little people pay taxes” before going to jail for tax evasion, died August 20 at 87.
WTF? There are people starving all over the world:
A crazy ass, tax evading, corporateer from hell leaves millions to a DOG! A society that allows greedy scumbags to amass huge fortunes and spend it on the stupidest things while others go without is sick beyond cure.
YOU all have to get up off your asses and revolt against this crazy shit! YOU have to understand that the republicrats and dempublicains are in cahoots! YOU have to understand that they will continue to allow and even promote these kind of sick excesses because they are bought and prayed for by the corporateers! The two parties of the apocalypse serve the needs of the pig rich. We are being conned and robbed by the filthy rich to take less and less as they take more and more.
We need remove as many dems and repubs from office as we can come election day. We need to tell the whole lot in washingtOOn, YOU’RE FIRED! It’s our only hope…
The telepathic crickets on the ClapSotronics editorial board are disappointed that the queen of mean didn’t leave them millions of dollars. They would have spent it to feed the hungry, treat the sick and injured, and give homes to the homeless!
The scientifically impossible I do right away
The spiritually miraculous takes a bit longer
