Castles In the Air

Here’s a tired, recurring, and ultimately worthy liberal fantasy cooked up by some congresspeople from, where else? Kooky Koastal Kalifornia.

U.S. Rep. Lynn Woolsey (guess which party) was joined at a Capitol Hill press conference by Rep. Barbara Lee of Berkeley (guess which party), the only woman to vote against the legislation empowering w. to rape Iraq, a couple of days ago. The article appeared (where else?) in the "Oakland Tribune".

In short, the ladies and the other Californian congresspeople who joined them, proposed a “Common Sense Budget Act” to slash Pentagon spending in lieu of feeding and educating children, poor folk, and anybody else buying into the rather torn-and-frayed American dream.

Among some of the other highly intelligent, if time-worn, things Woolsey had to say was, “The federal budget should reflect the priorities of the American people, not the needs of an insatiable military-industrial complex.”

“Military-industrial complex.” Hmmm, what crazy peace-freak “librul” coined that phrase?

It was President Dwight D. Eisenhower upon the occasion of his leaving office to make way for John Kennedy in 1960.
