PS: Followup to Veteran's Day Weekend Posts:
Cost of the War to Your Household...

President Bush is now on a veto spree, after six years of almost no vetoes. He's mounting it as a 'budget war' --
  • "The Congress now sitting in Washington holds this philosophy," Bush says about his latest veto. "Their majority was elected on a pledge of fiscal responsibility, but so far it is acting like a teenager with a new credit card."

  • Who does he think he's fooling? After squandering the greatest surplus any US President ever entered office with, after racking up the largest debt in US history, after spending more than every previous US President combined, he's demanding more $$ almost monthly for his wars while attacking Congressional spending over domestic needs and spending. I wish Congress would slide that jumbo credit card up his ass, on-edge, lengthwise.

  • With the cost of the Iraq War now over $1.7 trillion, it's now estimated to be costing $20,000 to
  • $43,000 per US household (I'm not sure what the variables are in those computations, but here ya go).
  • The cost in lives -- 1.2 million and counting.

  • The President now sitting in Washington holds this philosophy. He was elected on a pledge of fiscal responsibility and upholding our Constitution, but so far he is acting like a coked-to-the-gills drunken Fundamentalist neo-fascist teenager with a hankering for blood, a craving for infinite power, a taste for torture and appetite for voyeurism, a hard-on for creating Armageddon with a bottomless armory, an army, air force, and marine corps, no rational restraints and no spending limit in sight.
