Bush to seek higher US military budget
The sad part about this is that, in context, it's a whole lot worse than it first appears. Because not only is it only Pentagon spending (and so presumably does not include the CIA or this huge new "Intelligence" Agency that Congress, in their infinite wisdom, has seen fit to establish), but it does not include ANY of the money for the war[s] we're currently fighting.
This is the second (third?) budget in a row in which Sonny Bush has gotten away with that unconscionable sleight-of-hand.
It's "voodoo economics," except the witch doctor's drunk off his ass.
