It Just Gets Curiouser and Curiouser!
We have been hearing for YEARS that the dirty dems “don’t have the votes” to stop the war. I’ve been saying for years that is bullshit. I have been screaming for the dems to simply stop FUNDING the war. Nobody seems to listen. This from the new york times:
‘Blue Dog’ Democrats Join GOP in Opposing War BillBy Paul Kane

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi yesterday postponed consideration of a bill that would continue funding for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan as a bloc of conservative Democrats balked at the high cost of including several of Pelosi’s favored domestic spending programs.
Pelosi (D-Calif.), who also faces Republican stalling tactics in protest of unusual parliamentary procedures, predicted that the complaints of “Blue Dog” Democrats would be addressed and that the bill eventually would receive unanimous support from Democrats.
There you have it. The dems will again FUND the disaster of a war. They have been pro-war all along. They are gonna continue to fund it now. They are gonna continue to fund it after the 2008 election. THE DEMS AND REPUBS ARE IN CAHOOTS! A little further down in the times article comes this:
The Blue Dogs have objected to the creation of a program that would guarantee veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan a year of in-state college tuition for each year served in the war zones. The Blue Dogs said the House had not found any additional money, through spending cuts or tax increases, to pay for the program, a violation of pay-as-you-go rules imposed by House Democrats in early 2007.
I have an idea about what spending cuts the blew dog and other dirty dems can impose to have the money needed for veterans education and other domestic programs:
CUT THE FUNDING FOR THE DISASTER OF A WAR TO ZERO!
Then we will have PLENTY OF FUNDS FOR OTHER USES! WTF?! The idiot blew dog dems WHINE about the cost of an $11 billion extension of unemployment benefits. While at the same time SUPPORT SPENDING AN ADDITIONAL $162.5 billion for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. They have to be kidding. They have spent, and spent, and spent on this disaster of a war, for over five years, and now they are whining about few billion for the jobless and for returning vets education? So much for “support the troops.” These idiots in washingtOOn only support keeping them in harms way. When they come home the dirty dems and filthy repubs just throw our kids in uniform away like used and shot up humvees. How have the two parties of the apocalypse been paying for this disaster of a war? Like this:
The dems and repubs have been spending like drunken sailors on leave when it comes to this war. We will be paying this bill on into the future. It’s time for YOU to get a clue.
Support and vote for:
THE ONLY CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT
WITH A SANE BUDGET PLAN:
The Telepathic Crickets on the ClapSotronics editorial board and I are WAY PISSED that the dems seem to have the votes to block spending on domestic programs, while claiming they don’t have the votes to block pork barrel spending on the disaster of the war! SONOFABUSH! The dems and repubs are filthy liars!
The scientifically impossible I do right away
