Rebuild Iraq Before Hudson, NY ?

Tuesday, August 30th, 2011

OK, promise: this is my last post on the wars and what they cost for weeks.  But I had to get this in.  You’ll see on the news that FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, is running short of money to help Irene flood victims.  Congress will grudgingly give it $1-Billion dollars if Obama makes “appropriate” spending cuts.  “Appropriate” does not include much money from the military budget.

We are now spending $1-Billion dollars every day and a third in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya.  The rebuilding of Iraq isn’t going well – we cannot properly account for most of the money we’ve spent.  Obama could do a lot about this if he was a real leader – but he isn’t.  He is now campaigning for his re-election 14-months away.

I voted for O because of his stances against the wars. I used to think George W. Bush was the WORST President in history. Obama now has  blown him away with his own war policies.  We won’t forget, asshole.


Hoping For A Fall From Grace

Tuesday, August 30th, 2011

Nancy Grace went ballistic over the ‘not guilty’ verdict in the Casey Anderson trial.  She’s a lawyer so she must know what justice is better than 12 jurors and the American Judicial process. I find her loud, obnoxious, rude, and (sorry) chunky.  Kind of like the Rosie O’Donnell of Fox News.

So of course she’s a new contestant on “Dancing With The Stars”. I hope her partner is Dick Cheney – now THAT would be justice! Her selection must have been based on her famous comment after the Anthony verdict: “The Devil is Dancing Tonight.”

I don’t know if Nancy Grace is the devil – or dances like one.  But this fall I will watch my first episode of “Dancing With The Stars”.  I’ll bet I won’t catch her in the second.  And if I were her partner, I wouldn’t want to catch her at all.
