"Where are you going to get that money? Are you going to tell us lies like you're telling us today? Is that how you're going to fund the war? You don't have money to fund the war or children. But you're going to spend it to blow up innocent people if we can get enough kids to grow old, enough for you to send to Iraq to get their heads blown off for the president's amusement," Stark said.So the basics are, Bush thinks this bill is an overblown monstrosity that extends government entitlements to people that don't need them. He proposes extending the existing program by $5 billion, to cover more lower income children. You know what the State Children's Health Insurance Program was designed for. Democrats, on the other hand, want to use this as one more step toward universal health care. As a result, they are portraying Bush's veto as REPUBLICANS WANT YOUR KIDS TO DIE.
"President Bush's statements about children's health shouldn't be taken any more seriously than his lies about the war in Iraq. The truth is that Bush just likes to blow things up in Iraq, in the United States, and in Congress. I urge my colleagues to vote to override his veto," he continued.
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.So there you have it, moron. The president, unlike you, is trying to do his job. You, on the other hand, are pandering to the most base instincts of your constituency, and are trying to turn the entire country into wards of the state.
Metal Storm, an Australian company whose shares have recently skyrocketed on the stock exchange, has developed a robotized killing machine capable of firing more than one million rounds a minute, enough to shred an entire building in the blink of an eye.One Million Rounds per minute. That is un-fucking-believable. I would love to see that thing in action, decimating an entire building in seconds.
But it is the wartime applications that are most disturbing. With Metal Storm’s technology, Coalition soldiers can remain safely behind the front line while the Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UVG) uses sensors and targeting capabilities to attack hostile urban areas.That, to me, is a good thing. Soldiers stay as far away from the bad buys as possible, while simultaneously finding and destroying said bad guys. This results in fewer good guy deaths, and an ever increasing body count of bad guys. Remind me again why this is a bad thing?
This development could be the turning point in the Iraq occupation which has tainted the enthusiasm of the dwindling number of American pro-war supporters as more than 2,000 soldiers have been killed during an occupation which has resulted in the deaths of more than 100,000 innocent civilians.Oh, that's right. Because if we're winning the war, there's nothing for the anti-war protesters to, well, protest. They'll look pretty silly carrying around posters that say things like, "We're tired of winning this war. Stop killing the bad guys and come home." Oh, wait. They pretty much do that already, don't they?

Wanda’s articles are offered copyright free as part of her contribution towards a better world.My question for Wanda is this, just how do you propose that all people will live togethre in a free and dignified life if there is no one willing to stop the bad guys? If all the good guys lay down their arms, join hands and sing 60s peace songs, all they accomplish is that they make a good target. Large groups of unarmed peacenicks packed close together means one bullet = multiple kills.
