    So I've been looking at a few budget figures of where all of our money has been going. Aparently we are spending a few billion a day for our "war" in iraq.

    Strangely It only costs us one days budget to go to mars. The right choice here is how would I say this .... duh..

    Some how I dont feel like it will happen in my lifetime.

    Trust me, I aint no big bush fann, but the stupid people are paying these prices on things.

    Now a 6% raise on cable tv (comcast) next year, our gas went from 160 to 206, the car gas price is way out of hand, wtf is going on.
    Then I heard about the credit card companies still send thier crap, sighn me up junk mail, now even after the so called bankrupcy reform to the people who just declared bankrupcy pffft.Frickin banks getting away with extortion.

    There is NO reason for natural gas to increase in price NONE !!!!

    Oh sbc because I don't have a long distance plan they have it at 30 CENTS A MINUTE, now they just sent a thing out for a 5 dallar late fee for long distance service.
    Also they took away my payment center, they don't have (time) anymore, and all this charge crap for information.
    I need to stir the pot I'm tellin you, just wait till I do a web page, it's going to be the bash session of all time, and am going to enter it into every search engine, cause they can kiss my ass!

    Like man I am growing very pissed at all this SH_T.

    And ya thats waaay to much money for the results we are getting in iraq, plane and simple, like dang gimmie 20,000 and thats all i need.
    Not to mention those poor people (poor people too) from that hurricane, like I said wtf is going on.
    I wouldnt pay for my house they have to kill me I would never pay if I was one of those hurricane victims.

    I think it's gone from "We're going to" to "We damn well BETTER".

    I don't think it's unreasonable for people to be pissed off about Iraq. I also don't think it's unreasonable for people to be skeptical of its outcome.

    I'm sorry, your call cannot be put through. All the cry babies are in Iraq. The ones getting kidnapped, tortured and murdered. The ones getting blown up in an escalating atmosphere of violence. The homeless ones who are distraught but have little chance of recourse through the legal system because there isn't much of one anyway, and parts of it are being accused of revenge killings.

    I think someone missed the point... We could be sending people to mars or the moon and back every day for an entire year instead of paying for this "war".

    If you're so gung-ho supportive of this war (in Iraq), why aren't you over there too?
    My stepson was in the initial march into Bhagdad. He came home that July. He was then sent to Afghanistan in January this year. He just came home for a 2 weeks visit and he has to go back on the 20th. He's slated to come home in late april 'for good'. (That's when his tour is up) Now I don't mind so much his being there. The action there was justified. Iraq isn't. And rumor has it he'll be back there by midyear next year.

    And you are the first one to jump on the 'Liberals' as being fools, stupid..... ummmm remember who it is that is in control of the House, Senate aND the White House that has allowed this to happen? Two guesses, and one of them isn't the Dems.

    to btlJuice
    Those are VALID things to bash bush, not all this other tripe like "he lied" pfffft.
    I have as of yet, to hear ANY solution about ANYTHING from the dems, none, nothing, zero.
    not clinton
    not kenedy

    or ANY of them
    All i ever hear is , don't drill in alaska, no more tax cuts, bush mislead us, on and on, but NEVER any new ideas.
