Bush Announces New War Funding Strategy

In an attempt to divert attention away from the extreme burden of funding a war everyone is sick of, President Bush is putting his focus on Social Security and Medicare.

Because people are now defying the laws of longevity the Bush administration has decided to eliminate the coverage of certain drugs and health coverage in order to put some kind of cap on life spans.

A spokesman for the White House said that even though drug companies are making consumers take it up the ass by having to, on a regular basis, come up with inexhaustible amounts of money each month to feed their prescribed drug habits, they are tired of hearing billions of complaints.

"We feel that by banning certain drugs we will increase the natural attrition rate and we'll have to listen to fewer and fewer complainers," he said. "If people want to live through these extended years, they should be willing to pay the price without all the sniveling and be ready to sacrifice their drug money for war in a far away land where no one can really see how the money is being spent."

Americans however feel this is just not right. They are tired of paying for a war that will never end and of the countless lives it is costing the U.S. every day.

One anti-war activist who is using Bush's own words against him in his campaign to end Americas fruitless effort to calm a country that does not want to be calmed said that keeping America safe against extremists should include Bush as the number one candidate of extremity.

"Bush is about to ask for another $100 billion for military and diplomatic operations in Iraq and Afghanistan this year and another $145 next year. Imagine how many problems that could solve right here at home," he said. "We could supply everyone with all the meds they need. We could house the homeless and make sure that everyone has healthcare when they need it instead of making them wait until they are too sick to cure before they seek medical attention."

In cutting nearly $70 billion from Medicare and Social Security benefits, the current administration is hoping to stockpile enough money by 2012 to fund whatever war needs to be fought then.

Jacqui,

The only positive thing to come out of Bush's war efforts is that it is giving some 2008 candidates a platform to run on.

Without talking about ending the war, conflict, or whatever some probably wouldn't have to much to contribute. Most are not overburdened with credentials.

Welcome Back!!
