$80 billion for foreigners, but not $1 billion for national treasure

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The Bush administration soon will ask Congress for about $80 billion in additional funding for military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, congressional sources said Monday.


America is about to let a national treasure burn up because we "can't afford" the $1 billion service mission for the Hubble Space Telescope. But, we can gladly spend $80 billion to do Iraq's police work.

Few Americans give a hoot. Apathy on this scale is more proof that America does not deserve to be a world leader and will be forced to relinquish its world power status some day--some day soon.

Bush Steals Flip-Flop Limelight From Kerry

FLOP . . . February, 2002: When President Bush visited China, he told Chinese President Jiang Zemin that "the U.S. will adhere to the 'One China' policy." In "laymanspeak", this means Taiwan can go take a hike from their drive toward freedom.

FLIP . . . January, 2005 Inaugural: "When you stand for your liberty, we will stand with you." Do you feel confident, Taiwan?

FLOP . . . January, 2005 Inaugural: "Liberty for all does not mean independence from one another." If you were confident, forget it.

George Bush is determined to out FLIP-FLOP John Kerry in his second term.

FLOP . . . March 22, 2002, in speech to U.N. Financiang Council: "Developed nations have a duty not only to share our wealth, but also to encourage sources that produce wealth . . ."

FLIP . . . January 22, 2005:"And working together, we will secure the blessings of liberty, not only for ourselves, but for generations of Americans to come." You have a duty to share your taxpayer money to thug nations, but we will "secure the blessings of liberty for generations of Americans."

Traitor Kerry lost the election but his flip-flop tactics won the agenda and the heart and mind of George Bush.

Bush proposes dependence and loss of liberty at Inaugural

Yes, George Bush actually said this in his Inaugural speech:

"Liberty for all does not mean independence from one another."

Just yesterday I published an article at titled "America's Road To Communism" where I looked at the three tenets of communism and showed that two of the three tenets are firmly in place in America today.

I noted that one trait of communism is "an emphasis on the requirements of the state rather than on individual liberties."

One day after I published my op-ed, George Bush states at his Inaugural "Liberty for all does not mean independence from one another." No, I'm not kidding. Read the transcript. It is a full sentence; it is not parsed from a full sentence.

Wake up and smell the communism, folks.

Quashing the neural path

In a USA Today op-ed titled "A wartime inauguration with an expensive peacetime tilt", the writer questions the wartime spending (paid for by private sources") calling it a "$40 million extravaganza".

Being that the festivities are funded by private sources, not taxpayer money, the theme is radical extremism at its worse. The U.S. just pledged $350 million in charity to Muslim nations that hate us and use their money to blow people up, as they did in Bali. What truly is "extravagant" is the $1 trillion plus in taxpayer money spent on domestic social welfare during a time of war, and the billions sent to terrorist nations as charity during a time of war. The pork that is being added to the budget for ridiculous projects is enough to fund hundreds of Inaugurals.

The writer also invoked FDR and claimed the festivities were toned down during WW II. What the writer is too stupid to research is that FDR dropped social welfare spending from 48% of the budget down to near zero (2% of budget). George Bush has increased domestic social welfare spending nearly 3% from 2000, now at an incredible 65% of total Federal spending, all this during war time.

Once these radicals start penning a story, they focus what little grey matter they have in such a narrow fashion that the historical perspective synapse is not triggered and the neural path just shuts down.

One year and $200 billion to seal borders?

BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - Iraq will seal its borders, extend a curfew and restrict movement to protect voters during the Jan. 30 election, officials announced.


If the Iraqis can seal their borders and restrict movement to protect voters, why couldn't they, before $200 billion and the death of many American soldiers, seal their borders one year ago?

Undiscovering America

Kobe, Japan (AP)-- A U.N. conference this week will discuss coping with earthquakes, cyclones, typhoons and hurricanes, but one particular disaster will dominate: last month's tsunami. The head of the U.N. scientific agency already has announced that the organization will lead efforts to set up a provisional tsunami warning system in the Indian Ocean within 18 months, at a cost of more than $30 million.


The U.N. is hell-bent on spending American dollars that fund the U.N. on a tsunami warning system, while they let the radicals in Iran develop nuclear weapons with no serious effort to stop it.

Contrary to U.N. thinking, A-bombs exploding on planet earth will cause greater loss of life and more damage than a future tsunami.

The U.S. has also said it will spend taxpayer money to build a tsunami warning system for both the Atlantic and Pacific. We do not have an anti-missile system capable of protecting America from ICBMs, nor do we even have Americans vaccinated against small pox, but damn, we sure can build a tsunami warning system.

America's agenda: political correctness first, global welfare second, U.N. kissy-face third, America . . .

America somewhere not yet seen on the totem pole of priorities. She's there--we just have yet to discover her.

"Sister Hillary" Rev. Jesse Jackson praised New York Sen. Hillary Clinton yesterday as "Sister Hillary," after Clinton cited his efforts to overturn the presidential election by challenging the Electoral College vote in Ohio. He called Clinton 'a light in dark places' who has 'stood on the right side of history' ".


If Clinton were a Republican, Jesse would have a field day (or year) with this.

"Right side" of history? Maybe Clinton has been so far left Jesse's right eyeball picks her up on his right periphery radar scope.

That "dark place" is the black hole the Democrats have put themselves into in the Red states. Jesse Jackass has lost any credibility he may have ever had by looking at the "letter D" or "letter R" after each person before he opens his blabbering mouth.

In this case, he is pouring ooze over the scum.
