Congress Debates $100 Billion Iraq Cost

(AP) As costs in Iraq keep mounting by the billions, lawmakers and policy makers are debating how much more will be needed and whether money used so far was well spent. 
"Halliburton is gouging the taxpayer," Rep. Henry Waxman of California, the senior Democrat on the committee, charged at the hearing.
(We say, "Don't forget the Profit's 5th Pillar for Success.")

The estimate:  The current and expected spending rate is about $1 billion per week!

The Question:  If you were king of the world (or President of the United States) how would you spend $1 Billion a week?  Enter a comment to tell us...

hmm. I would buy 1,428,571 of these little fuckers and pass them out to welfare mothers, cause I mean, c'mon, even welfare mothers need to look chic with little designer dogs!

Plus, it's waaaaaaaaaay to cute. It makes my eyes bleed with its cuteness.

damn cute.

I would offer college tuition to Anybody Who Wants To Go. At $1 billion a week, we could afford to send every highschool graduate and every person with a GED to college, and have enough money to spare for books, supplies, and parking passes. But, a more educated population is definitely NOT what the Republicans want.

I would bring all the children of America together to sing. They could sing a song about how they're starving, or their schools can't afford new books because they tested too low (because they can't afford new books), and how they're parents don't have healthcare.

And I'd by a private island with a small air strip so we can shuttle people in for Deniis Culver Day.

I would give it all back to the rich people who pay all of the taxes.

Probably keep a little on the side for a strip club and a week of debauchery...

Hmmm, 1 billion a week ehh?

Education, Research, and Jobs

Or, as I like to call it, a "Education Superpower".
