      that keeps the machine running until that 40 bil gets signed into law.

      Really, going through CONgress with anything war-related is now just a formality: their approval, a foregone conclusion.

      I missed another cut-off of Thursday by 3 PM to complain to this guy’s phone line and get hung up on!

      Remember, Mr & Mrs America… you can only call between 11 am and 3 pm Tues, Wed, and Thurs. Be prepared for a busy signal, then an operator if it’s too busy to leave a message. You got two minutes, bud.

      This is worse than a town hall meeting with your congressional rep on the phone… Wait… I don’t get those anymore. Wack a Mole-Wack-a-Mole, lather, rinse, repeat…

      The Steele dossier, etc. Golden showers. All that.

      Here, it’s like Joe Biden can’t fork over US taxpayer billions to Ukraine fast enough. Yet, nobody sees anything weird about it?
