    tax deal summary


    The annual budget for the war is a few hundred billion. But the entire war was unpaid-for when Bush started it. And the effect of that was the economy of the mid-00s that led to the crash. Which is why the rest of the deficit is there.

    Remember when Bill Clinton left this country with a surplus? Then when W gave his friends a massive tax cut right when he was going to war? Then hyped real estate as an economic savior, when it was just a bubble?

    Yeah, I knew you'd forgotten that.

    You also forgot this: "I don't know where bin Laden is. I have no idea and really don't care. It's not that important. It's not our priority." - G.W. Bush, 3/13/02

    Just six months after 9/11, Bush was an utter failure, economically and martially, and played this sophomoric psychological game with his bosses, the public, who had approved the war in Afghanistan specifically to get bin Laden. And then Bush did something even worse: he lied to the public to get an even bigger war approved in Iraq. He sent more innocent people to die, he failed to get it paid for, he failed to win it (they're now a staunch islamic republic that would just as soon end America and any other state that isn't under Sharia law) and because of the lies he created moral authority among the enemies of this nation, which we will be fighting for a hundred years.

    As for "pussywillow", my DD-214 is in a filing cabinet an arm's length away. So LOL.
