    This is the kind of crap I'm disgusted with companies like Halliburton profiting and ripping off the taxpayers, while our troops can't afford bullets and body armor.
    Parent's sending their kids body armor and wall mart comms gear, is sad.
    This shows where the Administrations real interest.

    Keep that in mind when you think of Kerry, Kennedy and their ilk, as they continue to vote against every military budget and military initiative they can. Keep that in mind when they cry about the money being spent on the war. Personally, I don't care if it costs trillions. If that's what it takes to keep our troops properly armed/trained/equipped & the terrorists dying - I have no problem paying my fair share.

    wouldn't our buying planes, trains and autormobiles help the other corporations you seem to deride so much? Sure it would. So your argument holds no water. What happened to the vast, military industrial complex as promoted by your friends? Could our shortage of equipment be due to lack of support for the military in the 90s? You know, that shit ain't made over night.

    Haliburton my ass. Save your indignation for eight years of neglect by the Clintonistas.

    But then the safety of the military is only an issue for libs when it gives them something to bitch about during an election.

    I was going to vote for Bush until I found out his Texas Ol boys have a history of getting rich on Wars.

    And you Neo-cons just don't care,

    Wallmart comms, gears, are cheap Motorola unsecure walkie talkies.
    I'm guessing none of you served your country in any capacity, so you can't understand how fustrating this crap is.

    If I’m not mistaken it was your old boy, who said he would make sure the troops got the best equipment and everything they need to fight the evildoers, I think he even said it during the debates.
    I know it’s Clintons fault, the big deficit, the lack of jobs, just blame it all on the other guy, apparently the buck stops everywhere but the presidents desk.
    I’m not a Democrat, but the shameful way you people act, makes me want to join them.
