Cheney: Senate Resolution “Won’t Stop Us”

the evil dick
(CBS/AP) The White House reaction to the Senate resolution opposing President Bush’s decision to send more troops to Iraq came from Vice President Dick Cheney. In a word, he was defiant, saying about the general idea of a resolution, “It won’t stop us.”

“We are moving forward. The Congress has control over the purse strings. They have the right, obviously, if they want, to cut off funding,” Cheney said Wednesday in an occasionally testy CNN interview.

H.L.s Take
Sounds to me like Cheney is throwing down the gauntlet to congress. When he says it “won’t stop us” who is he referring to? him, and Bush? Because they are just about the only 2 people who want this troop surge to go forward, of course they are the 2 people who stand to profit from it the most. Cheney is daring Congress to step up to the plate and act like they have a pair, of course he is betting they won’t cut funding for the war because he knows that Democrats are afraid of a fight. The Dems are thinking to themselves “oooh if we cut funding for the war people may say that we were responsible for losing the war and they might not vote for us next time” BULLSHIT. Everyone is against the troop surge, and a majority of the American people will support them for cutting off the funding. It may be the surest way to ride to victory once again in 2008. So come Democrats, show some balls and cut off they bastard monkeys funding. Q


Unemployment On The Rise Again

Jobless claims rise to 16-month high

AP
Excerpt
WASHINGTON – The number of Americans filing applications for unemployment benefits shot up last week by the largest amount in 16 months, reversing two weeks of big declines.

The Labor Department reported Thursday that 325,000 newly laid-off workers filed claims for jobless benefits last week, an increase of 36,000 from the previous week. That was the biggest one-week rise since a surge of 96,000 claims the week of Sept. 10, 2005, when devastated Gulf Coast businesses laid off workers following Hurricane Katrina.

The increase of 36,000 was bigger than the 20,000 rise that had been forecast.

H.L.s Take:
What??? I thought that the economy is supposed to be doing great. The stock market is at an all time high. Ohhh yeah thats right, the economy is only doing well for the super rich, and for large corporations. But for regular people like you and me, its just a big smokescreen. Just like everything else Bush, and the Republicans do.
