Where’s the money?

It’s time for true patriots to recognize the continuing damage caused by our President and his administration. Bush & Co. have created a profiteering ‘long war’ (Rumsfield) to line the pockets of the oil companies and U..S corporations like Haliburton.

We the taxpayers are now on the hook for hundreds of billions to fund their goals. Meanwhile R’s play ball with tax breaks for the rich and giveaways to big business with the “disgraceful practice”(Senator McCain R-Ariz.) of earmarking pork. Fat cats in Washington do little to help local needs while riding the K-Street merry-go-round of lobbyist payola.

If you are still tuned into Rush and haven’t seen the damage to our health care, our seniors, education, the environment or attacks on our Constitution perhaps the $6.8B sale of U.S. ports to the United Arab Emirates will open your eyes. Hard to believe Bush claims that he didn’t know about it, but is willing to use the first veto of his entire presidency to force the sale of our ports. The Bush family has had cozy relations with Saudi-bin Laden families for 30 years transacting over a billion dollars of business. If there is any doubt about our president’s motives, follow the money.
