Before Republicans start bleating about deficits here's what Bush has landed us:

$607,000,000,000 for the war in IRAQ

1. How much good would that money have done if it had been spent on WORTHWHILE

7. I would bet every government building and every highway in America
didn't cost as much as Bush* spent in eight years. Six Trillion dollars is an unimaginable amount, especially when you figure highway costs and building costs in the millions.

3. Agree however I believe voters are accessories. Pogo said "We have met the enemy and he is us."

5. Perhaps Pogo is a philosopher and the sketch is a takeoff of Rodin's "The Thinker"?

8. I was thinking more of his shirt, but "The Thinker" crossed my mind too...
But, come now, we all know that escaped convicts, especially thought criminals, are more fun than statues.

Except "David". That stoner was hung.

9. Walt Kelly.had a gift for reducing social issues to their primitive nature. His Okefenokee
