Who supports the troops?

This from the AP - TODAY

WASHINGTON The U-S Army has contracted a southern California company to rush a 70-(m)million dollar emergency order of ceramic body armor to the front lines in Iraq.
The sole source-contract with Costa Mesa-based Ceradyne was approved last week.

It comes on the heels of a Pentagon study that found side armor could have saved dozens of U-S lives in Iraq.

The company is expected to begin shipping the armor plates in January and to complete the order by May or June.

The Army is planning to buy a total of 230-thousand sets of the ceramic side plates.

An Army spokesman say one company won't be able to deliver that order in the time required, so additional vendors are being sought through an open-bid process.

Hello? Who has been saying the troops need better armor? And who has ignored that until 2006? And when did we choose to invade Iraq? You have to remember this is a was of CHOICE.. a choice to sacrifice our kids by starting the war and then not giving them proper equipment for YEARS !!

Chris Matthews

Why does Matthews [aka tweety] get away with repeatedly comparing Democrats [and others who disagree with the shrub] with Osama Bin Laden? If an ex-respected news anchor on CBS said this - the repugs would be out there screaming "we want an apology!"

So join the call asking Matthews to apologize by going here

Rich bullies

Pampered rich boys and bullies both have serious problems but when you mix these together into one person - eeks!

Bully boy shrub - the would be king of the united corporate states is such a person. Pampered rich boys expect others to clean up after them. They do as they wish with no consequences. Mommy and daddy never say "no." Maids, servants and nannies do the cleaning up. When these pampered kids start bullying others, no one says "stop." If the victim complains, the victim is again victimized.

When these pampered bullies grow up - nothing in their experience changes. They still expect others to clean up after them and they still barge ahead doing as they wish - threatening to sue if you complain, or throw you in jail without an attorney, bomb your country if they want your resources, ignore your levees and make you beg for your medications if his plan is not working.

Where is the blame? On the victims of course. It was the Iraqis, the poor, the sick and the older among us who are to blame for their own circumstances. "Let them eat cake" he says. Who are you to ask me to provide anything for you.. IT'S ALL MINE and I am keeping it. Daddy and Mommy said I can have everything I want - and I want to be KING - I WANT IT - I WANT IT - IT'S MINE and he adds with that smirk: chuckle chuckle chuckle heh heh heh

And now I want to have the Supreme Court to coronate me - and THEY WILL DO IT because I said so - and I am the ruler.....
