"Today we submit a budget to the United States Congress that shows we can balance the budget in five years without raising taxes ... Our priority is to protect the American people. And our priority is to make sure our troops have what it takes to do their jobs."

Right. The priority is to protect American people. As long as they are young and able to FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT! ONWARD, CHRISTIAN SOLDIERS~~~

But if you're poor? Well, with $66 billion cut from Medicare over the next five years, you're gonna HAVE to join the military, you dumb fuck! And if you're old? What's taking you so long to die!? Maximum age to join the service is 44 years old; after that, you're useless! So kiss $12 billion in aid to Medicaid goodbye, gramps! Why not save us the time and get yourself a rope? Put it on your charge card, so we can chase your family down for the money you owe for it! And if your costs have made them poor... well, we've made it nearly impossible to even think of declaring bankruptcy nowadays, so they'll pay us somehow!

I realise I could flesh this out and put it on Superbusnet, but you know what? I have maybe 20 readers there. You people are GOING to read this shit, and hopefully, get angry enough to do something about it.

And I realise that this is all going towards the war effort. We should have never been in the war in the first place, but now, my fellow troops are being used as political pawns; if the Democrats - and moderate Republicans, come to think of it - block this, here comes Cheney and Bush, saying "you just took away ammo and guns and body armour from our soldiers! Like John Doe, son of Jane and Jim Doe, in Moooseshit, North Dakota. Your son played baseball with him! Because of you, he's going to die! How do you feel killing Jane and Jim's son? Murderer!" Meanwhile, George "Decider" Bush continues to play with his toys in the sand. Play-fighting was much more humourous when Lord Helmet was doing it in Spaceballs. Why? Because he was using DOLLS!

And don't get me started how a gazillion dollar raise for the Pentagon is going to eliminate the federal defecit without raising taxes. I'm not a tax-and-spend kind of guy like Roberts, but even I realise that we have to do SOMETHING about this, and take some pressure off the middle class. At this point, if I were to get married in five years, our honeymoon would have to be at a Burger King drive-thru; we wouldn't be able to afford anything else. Not even KFC. :(

Oh, and let's forget the fact that all the vehicles that are over in Iraq and everywhere else have increased greenhouse gases to the point where we're possibly looking at a nearly 5 degree celcius increase in the Earth's temperature over the next 100 years. Well, we're not supposed to know that... Bush demanded that "politically inconveinient" information be removed from any and all reports, and now the oil industry - run by Bush and Cheney - are basically bribing scientists to write dissenting reports discrediting the reports that have come out saying Global Warming is worse than we even thought possible.

This one's public. I'm going to shove this shit down your throats until you learn through fucking OSMOSIS. Though I might take this draft and turn it into something for SBNet (as I've had writers' block lately, as proven by two unfinished drafts sitting in my que).
