This goes along well with my previous post HELP THE WEALTHY, SCREW STUDENTS AND THE POOR

The Idiot in Charge wants a 5% INCREASE in defense spending for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan...and you can bet it won't be for body armor for the troops.

From the Associated Press via Yahoo:

"The spending plan would include $84.2 billion for weapons programs, a nearly 8 percent increase, including billions of dollars for fighter jets, Navy ships, helicopters and unmanned aircraft. The total includes a substantial increase in weapons spending for the Army, which will get $16.8 billion in the 2007 budget, compared with $11 billion this year."

Looks like the Emperor Chimp wants to go to war in alot of other places, too.

I don't understand why they just flat out refuse to buy some damn body armor.

Your tax dollars at work.

Gotta build up Cheney's retirement funds.

The troops in Iraq and Afghanistan are just commoners not neocon royalty. Therefore they are cannon fodder and body armor is not needed. Plus, that would remove $$$ from the Haliburton bank account.

Yeh, tax dollars at work doing absolutely nothing constructive.

I hope you see this. I've tried twice to post a comment on your blog, and both times a message told me that my comment was listed as spam. I don't know if this is a mistake or if it is for real.

If I've done something to get you POed I'm sorry. If you don't want my comments anymore, so be it. If so, then I will not return to your blog.
