Billions more for wars, storms


We need more money to blow stuff up.

U.S. military spending for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan will rise to $115 billion for this year -- and nearly $400 billion since the fighting started -- under an emergency request the White House submitted Thursday.

You know, I have trouble paying the cable bill every month and that's only about $150.

A separate request for almost $19.8 billion in new hurricane relief funds would bring total spending in response to Katrina and Rita to more than $100 billion.

You'd think with $100 billion New Orleans would be spotlessly clean, habitable and have flying cars, and robots that clean the streets, machines that cook four course meals for you and be the first 'City of the Future'. Nope. It's still a shithole. A very expensive shithole.

Does Dubya look like he's just let a smelly one go and is waiting for someone else to get a whiff?
