21. He was right about that. So were many others of us, I am sure, back in 2002. Nothing has changed,

 

so of course the narrative is real-life now. Iraq was a colossal screwing to the tax payers, with very dear deference paid to our brave soldiers and families who served, 4,000+ who died, and many more who were wounded. God bless them all. But, yeah, it was a royal butt-humping in EVERY way. *Something happened, financially, that is actually almost unexplainable at this point, if <i>nobody</i> is able to take on anybody about anything. I'm still hoping and praying that at least some of the story gets busted out into the open. I want some big names to topple. Heads of banks. As in, every one who participated in fraud. CEO's of large wall st firms. Regulators if they failed to regulate. Restitutions. Restoration of EVERY victims credit rating. (And I'd really like to have my house back, along with the $70k+ that I allege was basically stolen from me thru a fraudulent economic endouver designed solely to prop up the Bush economy. It's ALL tied together. Bush was the worst, most miserable failure of a President this nation has EVER seen. Still to this day, every one of those people are out in the public domain, flapping their jaws as if they didn't cause this hell we are living in right now. I am praying the memory is so alive in the minds of all that we can continue to gain in 14 and win the White House in 16. That is my fervent prayer at this point in my life. I depend on SS and Medicare. And I can barely do it now, before chained CPI would hit. I'm only in my late 40's so the chained CPI I am pretty sure would affect me when I reach retirement age (whatever the hell they decide now, they will probably raise that too), I would switch from Disability to regular Social Security.
