  •  The Iraq War cost 2 trillion dollars! (5+ / 0-)

    Along with over 4000 of our troops and probably several hundred thousand Iraqis.

    Since this was a war for oil that was supposed to pay for itself, why don't the oil companies pay for it?  Ah, corporate welfare is OK.

    Talk about wasted money that no Republican want's to talk about.

    •  Not only should they pay for the war (6+ / 0-)

      there ought to be some way for them to pay for the air pollution and the health effects of our using oil based products on our health and on the environment...

      The only reason they get the preferential treatment from Washington is because of the lobbiests - everybody knows this.  Remove the lobbys from the equation and you might have honest elections and legislation within two or three cycles.

      Imagine honest redistricting, honest debate on climate change, on voter registration, on universal health care, on tax equity...
