Q. How can you tell when Bush is lying to us?

A. His lips are moving.

In his SSOTU (Sad State Of The Union) address, Dubya said he would curb spending by reducing or eliminating inefficient or redundant programs. According to the Houston Chronicle today, areas that will take cuts include:

  • local law enforcement
  • firefighters
  • environmental protection
  • Medicaid
  • home heating aid for the poor
  • transportation
  • farmer's subsidies
  • Native American and low income area schools

Since, according to him, the economy's doing so great, where's all the money going?

  • tax cuts, mostly for the wealthy
  • war, since it's necessary to protect our freedom from fear
  • domestic security, also necessary to protect our freedom from fear
  • Social Security reform

Ah, America! Land of the free (as long as you toe the line), and home of the poor - unless you're a FOB (Friend Of Bush).
