    Seriously though at least this bull-plop war is almost finished. There's really not that much going on out here now, the whole atmosphere has changed from when I was here in April of 2006. What a difference a Surge makes.

    The real kick in the teeth is knowing that for all of us out here carrying weapons & getting shot at, there are equal amounts of KBR employees (half of which look like they'd be working as WalMart greeters or crack salesmen if they weren't here) sitting on their ass making 3-4 times a month what we do. :(

    megimoo;57928][SIZE="3"]Just so you know ....

    Hey, Moo, my mom just sent me this, its along similar lines,

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm against the $85,000,000,000.00 bailout of AIG. Instead, I'm in favor
    of giving $85,000,000,000 to America in a We Deserve It Dividend. To
    make the math simple, let's assume there are 200,000,000 bonafide U.S.
    Citizens 18+. Our population is about 301,000,000 +/- counting every
    man, woman and child.

    So 200,000,000 might be a fair stab at adults 18 and up.. So divide 200
    million adults 18+ into $85 billon that equals $425,000.00. My plan is
    to give $425,000 to every person 18+ as a We Deserve It Dividend.

    Of course, it would NOT be tax free.

    So let's assume a tax rate of 30%. Every individual 18+ has to pay
    $127,500.00 in taxes.

    That sends $25,500,000,000 right back to Uncle Sam. But it means that
    every adult 18+ has $297,500.00 in their pocket.

    A husband and wife team has $595,000.00. What would you do with
    $297,500.00 to $595,000.00 in your family?

    Pay off your mortgage - housing crisis solved.

    Repay college loans - what a great boost to new grads.

    Put away money for college - it'll be there.

    Save in a bank - create money to loan to entrepreneurs.

    Buy a new car - create jobs Invest in the market - capital drives
    growth.

    Pay for your parent's medical insurance - health care improves.

    Enable Deadbeat Dads to come clean - or else!

    Remember, this is for every adult U S Citizen 18+ including the folks
    who lost their jobs at Lehman Brothers and every other company that is
    cutting back. And, of course, for those serving in our Armed Forces. If
    we're going to re-distribute wealth let's really do it ... instead of
    trickling out a puny $1000.00 ("vote buy") economic incentive that is
    being proposed by one of our candidates for President. If we're going to
    do an $85 billion bailout, let's bail out every adult U S Citizen 18+!

    As for AIG - liquidate it. Sell off its parts. Let American General go
    back to being American General.

    Sell off the real estate. Let the private sector bargain hunters cut it
    up and clean it up. Here's my rationale. We deserve it and AIG doesn't.
    Sure it's a crazy idea that can "never work." But can you imagine the
    Coast-To-Coast Block Party! How do you spell Economic Boom? I trust my
    fellow adult Americans to know how to use the $85 Billion We Deserve It
    Dividend more than do the geniuses at AIG or in Washington DC .

    Now how about the $700,000,000,000.00 Bail Out??? Let's spread that one
    around too!!!!

    P.S.: Feel free to pass this along to your pals as it's either good for
    a laugh or a tear or a very sobering thought on how to best use $85
    Billion!!

    I am glad to hear your mom is a conservative.The Congress critters get their jollies spending our money .

    After this economic screw up the very least we should have is Pelosi and Reids heads on a pike and the rest of the liberal herd chained together with Barney Fag,Blowhard Dodd,Slick Willie and Jemimah Carter lashed together in the lead !

    I can’t believe that patriot45 would actually re-post an idiocy by megimoo, in which the basic math is so flawed. Dear fuck-tards: At 200,000,000 Americans, that’s only $5.00 per billion! Hello? Anybody out there?
