Senate Approves $82b for War; $0 for Unemployed Mothers

The U.S. Senate has approved $82b for the war in Iraq. Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Thad Cochran, a Mississippi Republican (that’s Beltway code for “brain damaged from generations of inbreeding”), said the legislation was "of utmost importance to our troops who are deployed in the war on terror and for our allies in the world." Unfortunately, all of the money will go to support the war in Iraq which is completely unrelated to terrorism and opposed by our allies in the world. You win some, you lose some.

Winners: Haliburton, God of the Old Testament, the industrial war complex and the insurgency

Losers: You, me, 1,000 more soldiers who will lose their limbs, God of the New Testament and anyone else who could’ve used the money like seniors, the social security fund or stem-cell gene-splicers
