Mixed Up Priorities

For only the sixth time in a pResidency that has seemingly lasted forever…GWB has vetoed a bill.

This particular measure would have provided a 20 percent increase in money for job training programs, $1.4 billion extra for health research at the National Institutes of Health, $2.4 billion for heating subsidies for the poor, $665 million for grants to community action agencies, $63.6 billion for the Education Department and a $225 million increase for community health centers.

At the same time WPE signed a separate bill to give the Pentagon about $460 billion. For what, you ask? $6.3 billion for the next-generation F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, $2.8 billion for the Navy's DD(X) destroyer and $3.1 billion for the new Virginia-class attack submarine.

Let’s see…job training, health research, helping the poor heat their homes, community action agencies education and community health centers are BAD while fighter jets, destroyers and attack subs are GOOD!

Quick question…do fighter jets, destroyers and attack subs help fight the war on terror? No.

When he says he loves America and her people, as always, HE’S LYING!!!
