In a surprising showing of spine, the US House narrowly rejected a new appropriations bill that would have provided 162 billion dollars more for the war. Hopefully we can put that money to much better use. One can only imagine the value wasted on that immoral war in Iraq. Maybe the Democrats will finally take a stand against the war, or maybe even impeach our criminal president.

Or, more likely, they will do nothing and sit back quietly while the nation slides towards militarism, corporatism, and theocracy. It is up to those of us interested in social justice to build a progressive movement that transcends the election cycles. Don’t expect the politicians to do anything without us forcing them.

Flattr this!

  1. 162 billion $ ? half of Africa could be upgraded with that kind of sum….or you could buy Microsoft 😉 Its been 5 years now from what I know and still I see no sense of this Iraq…. occupation, polish soldiers are also feeling like invaders instead of order keepers……but whatever….soon Bush and his administration goes on vacation…I suppose large slice of American Society hopes for a long one:) Now we have this SAM sites issue thingy……and Russia’s getting really nasty towards us and Czech’s for being potential …..US “PATRIOTS”;)

  2. I guess finding useful, relilabe information on the internet isn’t hopeless after all.
