Excerpt: But now, the federal fire-prevention money for their work is drying up.

One can only imagine what the $1.2 billion that's LOST over there in Iraq -- not spent on the stupid and illegal war, but money that was LOST, as in, gee boss, I don't know where all that money went -- could've paid for back here. And Bush has the audacity to ask for $189.2 billion more??
