Somebody at Halliburton is Getting Blown Off Your Taxes When the republicans authorized $18 billion of your taxes to be spent in Iraq, they gave it to their buddies and never looked back. Now the New York Times is reporting that more than half of that money is being spent for NOTHING. No work. No building. No improvements. ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. Easy cum, easy go.

As the Country Cheers for Kerry's Beating, Democrats Walk Away Three Democrats running for office have abandoned Kerry. If Republicans can break in the Democrats and train them to betray members of their own party during the campaign, it will work when these "Dems" are asked to vote on tax cuts, military campaigns and anything else.
