Well it's looks like the goons over at the White House are going to howl for another $50 Billion in protection money for the mafia operation known as the Iraqi government. If the taxpayers don't pay up, well, it's looks like the terrorists are going to make some trouble. So the message is clear, FUCK YOU, PAY ME.
It is insane that more of our Democratic representatives don't see this supplemental request for what it really is, extortion. An 8th grader with a internet account, could look up the fact that testimony in May, insisted, if not guaranteed, that the $147 Billion untethered, open ended supplemental bill would be more than enough money to finish out the fiscal year. Sadly, we have no 8th graders in Congress, we are stuck with "very serious people". But, yet, here we go again, $50Billion more is needed. Apparently because the waste, fraud, abuse, graft and corruption is even worse than previously thought. The situation is so bad that 33% of the last supplemental is required to finish off the last month of the fiscal year. Not sad, fucking insane. So there you have it, pay up on the $50 Billion in protection money or the terrorists will fuck up your your little restaurant. FUCK YOU, PAY ME. Hopefully sooner than later, our Democratic representatives will figure out that these goons are just that a bunch of goons. If Dems are really afraid of taking the blame for another terrorist attack, then they should be howling at the top of their lungs what about the hundreds of Billions spent on Homeland security? What about fighting them over them so we don't have to fight them here? If a terrorist knows or thinks we are tapping their phones, what the fuck makes you think they are using phones to communicate?
Dems, don't pay the protection money. It's a canard, implement ALL of the recommendations of the 9/11 commission. Put real teeth into Homeland security, stop diluting the Bill of Rights and conning the American people.
