Why is it that the Democrats can pass billions more to continue the bloody war crimes of the Bush Administration but can't seem to get any money for children, veterans, the sick or anyone else?

Pelosi took impeachment off the table so they could get important legislation passed instead of wasting time defending the Constitution or exposing the criminal behavior of the Bushies. Nice job, Nancy! Apparently the "important legislation" you had in mind was more funding for the war crimes in Iraq, making illegal wiretapping legal, and letting our veterans die for lack of care. At least we know where the Democratic Party stands now - thanks!

They just don't have the votes to get the budget past the GOP. It's painful. More pressure has to be brought to bear on the Republicans who are giving BushCo what he wants, which is all of them really. So if you've got a GOP Rep, give him/her a call daily.

Their devotion is stunning because if we end up with a CR for next year, then the earmarks disappear along with the program funding. That's a lot to give up for a president on his way out.

  • "[O]ur time, our energy, should be spent in educating, agitating, organizing our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the neighborhood, in the schools. Our objective should be to build, painstakingly, patiently but energetically, a movement that, when it reaches a certain critical mass, would shake whoever is in the White House, in Congress, into changing national policy on matters of war and social justice."

Bono


  • "True religion will not let us fall asleep in the comfort of our freedom. Love thy neighbor is not a piece of advice, it's a command. ...

    God, my friends, is with the poor and God is with us, if we are with them. This is not a burden, this is an adventure."

  • Ray wasn't singing about what he knew, 'cause Ray had been blind since he was a child. He hadn't seen many purple mountains. He hadn't seen many fruited plains. He was singing about what he believed to be.

    Mr. President, we love America, not because of all of us have seen the beauty all the time.

    But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody.

Marx


  • ''With adequate profit, capital is very bold. A certain 10 percent will ensure its employment anywhere; 20 percent will produce eagerness, 50 percent positive audacity; 100 percent will make it ready to trample on all human laws; 300 percent, and there is not a crime which it will not scruple, nor a risk it will not run, even to the chance of its owner being hanged.''
