It sure is good to see Ike Skelton trying to bring sanity to the war in Iraq!
Escalating the war in Iraq is a policy only to prolong the loss of life.
We do not have a enough troops to end the fighting in Iraq.
Finally, to all of our good friends who support this Adminstration, I wish they would explain whether they endorse the Bush Administration's budget request on cut funding for the VA.
WASHINGTON - The Bush administration's budget assumes cuts to funding for veterans' health care two years from now - even as badly wounded troops returning from Iraq could overwhelm the system.
Bush is using the cuts, critics say, to help fulfill his pledge to balance the budget by 2012.
As we all know, some of us are sacrificing more for Bush's disaster in Iraq than others. Where is the outrage on this new Bush outrage?

Kudos to Helen Thomas, who alone in the White House press corps and at a time when many were still fawning over George W. Bush had the guts to identify him for history as he is---The Worst President Ever.

I'm taking the link you provided and am putting it on some other blogs. I suggest you do the same.

Remember we go to war, not with the army we wish we had, but the army that Rumsfeld and Bush created. (Gates hasn't been in office long enough.)
Remember THEY support the troops. Again, I ask our good Bush/Cheney apologists whether this story makes them feel good about how the Administration is supporting the troops.
The Army is working to fill a shortfall in Iraq of thousands of advanced Humvee armor kits designed to reduce U.S. troop deaths from roadside bombs -- including a rising threat from particularly lethal weapons linked to Iran and known as "explosively formed penetrators" (EFP) -- that are now inflicting 70 percent of the American casualties in the country, according to U.S. military and civilian officials.
The additional protection is needed for thousands of U.S. reinforcement troops flowing into Baghdad, where these devastating weapons -- used primarily by Shiite fighters -- are particularly prevalent, the officials said.
Hey, the Bush supporters wanted tax cuts, right? And, as Bush has observed, we all sacrifice when watch the film from Iraq about the death of our troops because they don't have appropriately armoured vehicles.
Bush et al. don't support the troups and don't support veterans. One of the great mysteries to me is why 30% still approve of them.

Oh, and something worthwhile comes out of Utah!
"In a vote that could usher in one of the most sweeping state education policy changes in recent history, the Utah House approved a private school tuition voucher program — by a single vote.
The Parent Choice in Education Act, sponsored by Rep. Steve Urquhart, R-St. George, would give families a private school tuition voucher that would range from $500 to $3,000, based on income."
One state victory for people's choice, parental rights and the taxpayer's power!
Just 49 more states to go.....

Whoa! Did Steve Penn just let Mark Bryant with Freedom Inc. claim his tenure was "scandal free"??? With no rebuttal, balance, or even missing a beat? Apparently Steve slept thru the 2006 August primary. Then again, maybe his memory's just a little "Fuzzy"?
paying attention yet? |

I just listened to Steve Kraske's blog show on KCUR. There was no mention of Tony Boltello slamming people that were running against his mom, without Tony disclosing who his mom was. I like Steve, but do "we the people" have to do everything?
