He's Right!

Yes! For the second time in a couple months, a Democrat got something right.

Charles Schumer, Democratic Senator from New York, said the following:

I think the American people are getting tired of sending the money with no end in sight.
He is right; I am sick of sending the money with no end in sight, to:
  • The war on poverty
  • The war on drugs
  • The IRS (to enable that awful organization)
  • Corporate welfare programs
  • State entitlement programs
  • Pet projects for Congressmen and Senators
  • Political campaigns
Oh, but that is not what he is referencing. He is talking about funding the soldiers. (See article here.) We should all use his own statement against him, and against all those re-running for political office in 2008.

I dunno... Is "money for the war" the same as "funding soldiers?"

The "war on terror" is as nebulous and void of meaning as the "war on drugs." I object to them both.

I interpret Schumer's comment to mean he either fails to grasp the seriousness of the threat (of terrorism) or he is simply taking an opposite position to score political points - or both.

I have no problem spending tax money in hopes of preventing another 9/11. I do have a problem with spending money hand over fist on entitlement programs (social or corporate) when the recipients are not held to any accountability.
