It's unbelievable! Didn't he get the memo that his bosses, the American people, have said enough is enough? There are many people in America who have no place to lay their heads at night and no food in their stomachs. Why do we need more money for a contrived war to benefit Bush's oil buddies? There are many people in America who can't afford to go to college, and there's not enough money for everyone to get a student loan. Why do we need more money to blow up harmless civilians? There are disabled people living on $600/month because they can't work and that's all they get from social security disability. Why do we need more money fof GWB to feel the vengeful personal satisfaction he needs? There are schools that are underfunded. There are countries who need aid. There is New Orleans still in ruins. Someone please stop this man.

The amount is really astronomical. I believe some of it will go to rebuilding Iraq and Afghanistan. It is just right that the US government take it as its responsibility since they started the war. However it is the American people who shoulders the cost. The war shouldn't have started at all.

Well, I hope you're right that the money will be spent to rebuild what we destroyed, but I always take any talk of rebuilding with a grain of salt. I just don't see it really happening.

I'm sure he never felt being poor, he is the real slaughterer for sure, he can't wait to waste his fellow civillians' money, he doesn't have any heart, he's the only one nominee of "the worst President award", he never felt being shot, he never felt losing the beloved ones, and of course... he never felt being in HELL.
