I didn't get the memo this morning; is it okay to cite "neocon" websites when the numbers coincide with your arguments? If not, you might want to find another link, DM....or run the rist of being A NEOCON!

Which doesn't add up to a pimple on the ass of the budget for NMD or the War in Iraq, or the Military budget in general.

It takes a thousand Million-dollar pork projects to make a billion dollars, and we're spending more than that every week in Iraq.

Typical Heritage Foundation misdirection play. The National budget is out of balance by half a trillion, and the total debt is about 14 times that amount, but they're pointing the finger at the little stuff.

Wake up, Dave. There's herd of elephants raiding the barn, and you're looking at the ants getting the crumbs.

Is janet Jackson' boob going to be on display at the 'please touch' museum ?

Or is it more suited for the World Cup ?
