We are being fleeced. 

I'm so mad today, I can hardly speak without spitting. Our representatives in Congress are going to approve the fleecing of America through the 87 billion dollars, despite allegations of kickbacks, despite allegations of inflated cost estimates, despite the way this thing has been handled from the beginning.

Some of our "representatives" in Congress are over-paid plutocrats who apparently don't give a hoot about the average joe struggling to make ends meet, who are now going to have to foot a bill for a war we are losing, a war that wasn't needed in the first place.

This bill might be the straw to break the camel's back, when the true nature of how this money is being spent will leak out, pour out, spill out like a sieve of revolting intelligence agents.

Arms and the Man, I hope you're on this. I'll help too, in terms of tracking down whatever articles I can on the corruption that is happening while we speak in that sad, broken country, with our money.

Shame on the democrats who were cowards in voting for this bill. Thank you Congressmen William Jefferson from my home state for voting against the bill. Thank you, of course, Kucinich, Pelosi, Jackson-Lee and many others in the House of Representatives who had the courage and the balls to stand up to corruption.

Thanks to Senators Kerry, Graham, Edwards, Jeffords, Kennedy and of course, the very courageous Senator Robert Byrd, who in my view, is the greatest living, American statesman, with Kucinich a close second.

Kerry and Edwards grew their balls back. Daschle did not. Gephardt continues to be ball-less, and apparently, despite his retoric, I met in the Rose Garden, blah, blah, blah and told the president blah, blah, blah, he is willing to fund an unjust and unwise war and enrich all the president's men.

Senator Boxer against. Senator Feinstein, for. Check the records for yourselves. I've provided the links. Despite this vote, this battle has only just begun.
