Meanwhile, at the D.C. Pig-Ranch….

The Pentagoons, meanwhile back in DC, are expecting another 37 BILLION dollars to fall into their pockets. Telling the Senate House, it got kicked back to the House after modifications by the Senate, that not giving them more of their Purina PIG Chow would be treason and the betrayal of “the Troops” about whom the Pentagon and other warmongers care Not One Damned Bit in the first, second, third and all the way to the Last place. The Senate House vote is expected by this afternoon, and it’s already almost noon in Washing Tundy Sea. Will the Senate do the patriotic thing, for the first time in like, forever? Or will they do what the War Industry Lobbyists pay them to do and fork over more bread? My prediction is that the Manufacturers of guns, bullets, grenades, rockets, trench-knives, uniforms, shrouds, coffins and Funerary Flags are going to be treating their Tame SenatorsRepresentatives to steak and lobster dinners tonight. Meanwhile the TeaBags are out screaming about proposed increases in Health Care and more oversight of the Banking and Investment "industries", neither of which has actually taken place yet. But not one word against the War. 19215

LTE, 1899: May the thunderbolt which is to fall from heaven upon this nation

For Independence day we might ask: is it more patriotic to support illegal wars than to oppose them? I'd like to revisit a century-old letter to the editor submitted to the Springfield Republican on April 21, 1899, by Caroline Hollingsworth Pemberton a few days after tax day. She wrote to defend another letter writer, critic of America's imperial expansion into the Philippines, accused of "treason" for suggesting that his taxes should not be funding a war of aggression. 18436
