Now it Even Makes More 'Sense'...

Not only did a couple of dozen Dem senators join the compassionate' Repugs' vote for the Bancruptcy bill, but among them, I'm told, was none other than Harry Reid from Nevada, our minority leader (if true, he's no longer my party leader!). Forgotten in the hullabaloo of the bill are veterans, past and present, through no fault of their own, who now will have no recourse for events beyond their control - such as being called up from the National Guard and Reserves and serving much longer than their 'maximum' advertised deployment time - veterans now out of business or out of work. Yes there are those, veterans and others, who have abused bancruptcy, but most have no other options.

And now we know the "rest of the story" - kept out of initial reports. Not only was MNBA, the largest credit card company, and the largest of W's supporters, behind passage of the bill, but guess who now is the General Counsel for MNBA?

Louis Freeh - that's right, W's former FBI Director who left under fire to 'spend more time with his family' - and is now making millions of bucks spending more time with his family while getting W to help him do so - while practicing usury on the general public. How bad does it have to smell Repugs? It's disgusting - especially where the elderly and veterans are concerned.

How do you spell C-O-M-P-A-S-S-I-O-N-A-T-E, conservatives?
