  • Horrible yes, but not any worse than the Bush family being friends with the Bin Ladens.

  • The Bush family is not "friends" with the bin ladens. And besides that Osama bin laden is banned from Saudi Arabia and disowned by his family.

  • I thought it was $2.5 million. Yes, we are borrowing money from China but still able to give money to an oil rich country that doesn't need our money. One Congressman discussed it this morning. He said the first Congress knew about this was when Ghadafi announced it at the U.N. They have been told a "junior staff member ok'd the appropriation" but it has not been sent to Congress for approval. He has tried to find the source of the appropriation but has hit a wall of "I'm not sure" but the money will be going. Yes, we are in the Twilight Zone.

  • All I can say is call, e-mail and write your lawmakers and TELL them what you want your elected officals to do or not do. Untill the masses step up and have a louder voice than the special intrest groups and lobby's our Govt and elected officals will continue to do as their pocketbooks benifit.
