    It's false in that you are claiming that the Senate caved and passed the House bill. It's just a temporary bill, until Sept. 16, only because the House skipped town.

    Is this how it's going to be straight through to the election? I wish to vote to move the election up then, please.

    Tuesday works for me.

    If we had an election next week, the GOP would go the way of the dodo.

    Oh gawd, I see we're nitpicking every tidbit in everyone's archives. How ignorant.

    You do know, I hope, that George Bush ordered the use AF Planes to be used for the Speaker of the House and other officials following the attacks of 911. Denny Hastert (former speaker) used a C-20B for all air transportation to and from DC to Illinois. But as soon as a Democrat became Speaker, she got slammed for it. Gee, wonder why? What's good for the goose is good for the gander, unless you happen to be a Democrat that is.

    Do you have numbers in your "files" regarding the "COSTS" involved in any of the Republican Congressional Delegates little adventures to foreign countries? I'm betting no.

    It's not even an appropriate "subject" to toss into this thread. A strawman argument. That said, "pork" spending reached a pinnacle in 2005, the highest in history, under you-know-who and which party in control.

    "Pork" is also known as "earmark spending," which means stickys placed on pages in existing bills often having NOTHING to do with the "pork funding" requested, but gets approved because it's part of the bigger package.

    Educate yourself. Beck College doesn't cut it.
