I'll join the others in saying best of luck to you and your loved ones, Ringwraith
. Assuming Galveston gets hit by Hurricane Rita, who will pay for it? Can Bush's borrow and spend fiscal policy survive Hurricane Rita, or should we expect a change in our economy?
Since when did George W. Bush give a rat's behind about who is going to be paying for all the damage? He obviously does not want to take the tax cuts away from the wealthy, but it is perfectly all right for him to have the construction workers' wages cut
while rebuilding Mississippi and Louisiana, all the while having Halliburton rake in the bucks relatively unimpeded. Any feigned concern about the plight of the barely employed has been exposed to be just that on the part of this administration.
How about pulling the troops out of Iraq? How about not funding the rebuilding of Iraq any more? Or does Bush just love war too much that a couple of MAJOR disasters stateside aren't going to get him down? OKAY, calm down, PE
, enough of a diatribe already; these people already know how you feel...
Why, the answer to the question is as plain as the noses on any of our faces...WE ARE, ONCE AGAIN, GOING TO BE THE ONES TO PAY FOR IT! Now, we'll borrow the money first from the Asians as we have been doing all along, so it won't seem so much like the bill is going to arrive at our doorstep unless, of course, we notice the higher insurance premiums coming in the mail.
The government's got to do something about this. The problem is that Bush is as entrenched in the White House as a tick under a dog's collar. What're we gonna do--IMPEACH HIM as he continues to show fiscal irresponsibility?
We made our bed with George W. Bush; now we're lying in it.
