Let the Damned Thing Die
By Mark Hull-Richter
It never ceases to amaze me how stupid our elected representatives,
and their lobbyist groups can get.
Bush, as expected, vetoed the wimpy supplemental appropriations bill
giving him $124 BILLION so he could continue the occupation in Iraq
from September, 2008 on past the end of his term, AND enough to fund
the beginning of another unprovoked, non-defense, preemptive, illegal
war, this time on Iran. The bill was wimpy because, despite all the
blowhard rhetoric from our corporate-funded representatives
(Democrats, for the most part), all the deadlines and time schedules
were ADVISORY ONLY and NON-BINDING.
But now, in a true fury of blowhardiness, and in what smacks of the
most unbelievable doublethink of our time, Move-On, which is
supposedly opposing the "war" aka OCCUPATION in Iraq, is furious that
Bush won't take the money!!!!!
Can you believe this BS?
Here's what to do:
Call your Representative and tell them: DROP IT! If Bush doesn't want
the money, even with minor, mild, advisory strings, tell him to pay
for the damned thing himself. NO MORE MONEY.
As Maxine Waters told the state party delegates in California, and as
no one in Washington or outside the convention was listening, "Not one
more nickel, not one more dime, not one more soldier, NOT THIS TIME!"
Cut the royal person-of-dubious-parentage (which is true, by the way)
off at whatever hundreds of billions he has already wasted, plus the
hundreds of billions the DEMOCRATS in Congress have promised him
through 2009 and beyond, and DROP THE WHOLE THING NOW!
That will end the occupation, and our butting in, in the Middle East.
Until Dick stages another phony terrorist attack....
