The American economy is teetering on the brink of the worst recession ever. The nation no longer has the money to solve its problems.

Why? Because the basic conservative in the USA has gorged at the trough of greed beyond avarice and refuses to pay the costs -- in money and manpower -- that it takes to pay for their indulgences.

Three trillion bucks is a lot of money to hand to the incompetent leadership of a failed political philosophy.

_______________________ CP I think that this guy missed one two or three zeros while doing his calcs.

So far 3500 hundred families have lost their principle bread winner. 10,000 have some one coming home that is no longer able to function as the bread winner.

Can the US government declare bankruptcy of its self because I don't want to pay for this BS. There is now way out of this financial nightmare,

Look around the world has their oil prices caused the price of petrol to go up like it has here?

This clown and his cohorts has pulled the plug and let the water out of the bathtub. Now we still have to bathe but the water is gone.

No CP the costs are much more than $3-trillion

Hey if we started a war against the US could we then get aide for losing?

The really annoying thing is, Bush can't even blame the war for his financial mess.
His campaign back in 2000 was based on "spend more, cut taxes, and let the fairy-god-market take care of the bills".

Quite right TFD, the war is a terrible waste by any other standard, but it is a stimulus to the American economy. Shame the same thing cannot be said about Bush's rescue package of tax cuts. Still he wouldn't be GWB if he didn't go for the dogmatically correct as opposed to the practical solution.

Oh, don't you worry.

Put Queen Hillary on the throne and you can count on a $50,000 Patriot Donation made mandatory on every firearm owned. Just ask Janet "I buried my heart at Ruby Ridge" Reno.

That fee will be "gladly" paid by any proud conservative who didn't want the "Pro Terra-Ist" label attached.

Non-compliance results in water-boarding.

How much more of a conservative patriot could one be?!?!?!?!
