leading into the far-distant iowa caucuses, which show us what...iowans....think about presidential prospects, we find that 51% of Iowa Republicans want us out of Iraq in six months.
Not "51% of California Liberals" or "51% of New York Elites" or "51% of Miami Beach Crossdressers"
Those are Midwestern conservatives. People who, in a very real way, are responsible for getting our people in there where they are killed every day. People who helped us to achieve George W. Bush.
Why isn't Congress bringing them home?
Congress won't do it. They won't even entertain the idea of impeachment. The Executive branch, wholly-owned subsidiary of GOP Inc and the Halliburton Corp, won't. They don't give two fucks. They like watching people get killed, it's fun on the teevee.
The Judicial branch won't do it. They are a minor holding of the above companies.
The only people who can do it are We the People. We have to engage in direct and indirect activities to get A) war-profiteering Democrats and 2) Cowardly congresscritters of any stripe OUT of congress, and get real Americans with some spine in. 2006 was a start...but it didn't work. Congress rolled over on FISA, ran from the Bush Escalation, and won't even THINK about impeachment. They practically need a lie-down every time Bush says "veto!" We need fighters and scrappers in congress, ones without the milky teat of corporate money clenched firmly between their teeth. The good part? We can elect them! WE can, not the corporate-owned media. But WE have to get off our asses. If the Dems won't do it, the only logical reason is that they, or their masters, are profiting insanely from this disgusting meatgrinder they've built in Iraq. And they want it expanded into Iran and Syria!
So stand the fuck up and stop crying. We have 2008 coming up, and we have pressure we can bring til then. It's Americans that got these fools elected and it's Americans that will have to whip some ass if they don't do what we want. Iowa Conservatives, California Liberals (hi!), New York Elites, and Miami Beach Crossdressers, everything between, beyond, and to all sides of them...If we don't, no one will.
Assuming that all uninsured sick children have the same kind of trust fund that Georgie had, Bush explains his rationale for denying health care and cutting off funding to the CHIP program.
"I support the initial intent of the program," Bush said in an interview with The Washington Post after a factory tour and a discussion on health care with small-business owners in Landover. "My concern is that when you expand eligibility . . . you're really beginning to open up an avenue for people to switch from private insurance to the government."
Bravely misunderstanding the arguments of communist sympathizers like Sen. Grassley (R-Iowa) and Sen. Hatch (R-Utah), Bush continues to protect the delicate market system from the freeloading terror of poor kids with diseases.
In a seemingly unrelated story, the cost of the war in Iraq is now $444,519,508,302.
