Congress: $87 BILLION not enough
Incredible. In Congress, instead of refusing Bush's extortion and demanding that the troops come home, they're just adding pork to the already pork-filled request to fund a brutal and pointless occupation. A lot of it is band-aids to make it possible to continue doing the incredibly stupid longer: Better armor for Hummers, radio-jamming devices to thwart remote-control bombs, repair for worn-out equipment, etc.

Just bring them home, you sleazy Congressional pork peddlers! You don't fix a mistake by continuing to make it.

And readers, please keep calling Congress (800-839-5276), and writing letters to the editor, and showing up for protests. Make it clear that you don't want another dime spent on occupying Iraq, and that you want the troops home.
