Yes, this is true, no joke my friends, The Senators diverted $2.6 Billion in funds in a defense spending bill to pet projects largely at the expense of accounts that pay for fuel, ammunition and training for U.S. troops, including those fighting wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to an analysis. Among the 778 such projects, known as earmarks, packed into the bill: $25 million for a new World War II museum at the University of New Orleans. Yes, to build a NEW World War II museum at the University of New Orleans. I say NEW because they already have a beautiful World War II museum, I know because I have been there several times.
Ah, but the NEW museum will be named after TED KENNEDY. I guess that's the difference!
This idiotic bill was written by the IDIOT Senator Inouye! Please remember that name when you folks go to into that voting booth.
This is clearly like saying screw the troops, I need the pork to pay for my reelection. This Congress has truly become the cesspool of the nation.
What a wonderful commander in chief and congress. There are not enough words to describe these worms. This really boils my blood. Where the hell is the republican spokesperson on this? Everyday I see either Reid or Pelosi spitting lies out of their pie holes but never a republican. Where are the Republicans? Why are the missing out on so many opportunities to nail these creeps. Unbelievable is all I can say.
I don't ever want to hear a Democrat ever say "WE support the troops" ever again.
