Democrats seek tougher action on Iraq
Houston Chronicle, TX -  2-7-07
WASHINGTON - Tired of waiting for an opportunity to try to stop the war in Iraq, some Democrats say they want to use legislation approving billions of dollars in war spending to insist that President Bush not send more troops.


I wouldn't buy a burger or a used car from Bush.



President Bush proposed a three-trillion-dollar budget Monday that Democrats claim spends fifty billion dollars on the Pentagon but cuts funding for heating oil subsidies. That's just wrong. If the Pentagon budget isn't an oil subsidy then what is? - Argus Hamilton, comedian

CIA Water Cronyism


 CIA officers operating in northern Iraq bought drinking water from a bottling plant there for years prior to the 2003 invasion that ousted Saddam Hussein...That changed soon afterward. A CIA officer handling logistics for the Middle East and other regions recommended that an American company provide water and other supplies, according to former government officials.



"Who in their right mind would send 360 tons of cash into a war zone? But that is exactly what our government did." -- Henry Waxman, Democratic chairman of the House Oversight Committee





Disturbing News


"Arnold Schwarzenegger is in trouble after tapes surfaced of him saying negative things about other Republicans. Actually, the Schwarzenegger tapes surfaced last year, but they weren't deciphered until this week." --Conan O'Brien


Fuzzy Math Epidemic


Veterans groups and Sen. Barack Obama say government officials are obscuring the actual number of wounded in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars by leaving out of some public documents troops who suffer non-combat injuries...the number of wounded in the wars often circulated publicly is around 23,000...That number only accounts for those wounded in combat. When troops from those wars who were wounded in other ways are counted, the number more than doubles, to about 53,000.


Republican Shenanigans


Rudy Giuliani filed his notice-of-candidacy papers with the Federal Election Commission Monday. He's had three wives, he supports gay marriage and gun control, and he's running as a Republican. We're about to find out if 9-11 changed everything. - Argus Hamilton, comedian

San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom admitted to having an affair with his friend's wife while he was divorcing Fox News anchor Kimberly Guilfoyle. The city may never forgive him. If there's one thing they can't stand, it's somebody who's in bed with Fox News. - Argus Hamilton, comedian


Smuggling in the Name of Jesus


The couple were arrested on Jan. 8 after a customs officer at Miami International Airport found they were carrying more than $56,000, but had declared only $10,000, according to the arrest affidavit.

Subject: Dubai Palm Island Photo


Hi Lisa,

I think you hit the nail on the head more than you know in suggesting
that Bush get those guys to rebuild New Orleans. The things that I've
read say that in Dubai they bring in workers from India and Pakistan to
do their building, and take their passports so they can't leave.
Others are never paid for their work. So, it seems like something Bush would
be interested in.



Gary, don't be giving Bush any ideas!


Dubai has built a palm island and the USA has left New Orleans to rot. Are we still #1?
