Sound Destruction: F CONGRESS

Tuesday, December 20, 2005


WASHINGTON, Dec 19 (Reuters) - Congress rejected U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's impassioned appeal to provide $50 million for African troops trying to keep peace in Sudan's Darfur region, the State Department said on Monday. In letters sent last week to the heads of appropriations committees in both the Senate and House of Representatives, Rice wrote: "We are in critical need of funding to continue this mission at a robust level into 2006."

(every now and then condi and my views can cross paths I guess)

50 million.

is destroying life really more important than saving life?

It's appauling and maddening how ass backwards congress & this administration's priorities are.

Aren't we spending money on going to Mars?

As in... Mars. The planet with nothing on it except for hotness.

Good post, Strider and I agree with your sister. That's the right Twain quote. I wish I had money to send to every challenger in every district. I'm done with these clowns.
