By James Wilson


MEDIA ALERT: Jim Babka hosts radio tomorrow. See below today's…




In the previous decade, opposing war led to accusations: "You don't support the troops."


But who really hates the troops? Might it be politicians who use them as props?


Might it be that Congress hates the troops so much, that they'll use them to create a slush fund?


I wrote the following letter, opposing the Afghanistan slush fund, using the cut federal spending at


You may borrow from or copy these comments…


There will be a 39% cut in troops in Afghanistan, but the war budget will fall by only 2%!  


Troops died. Congress uses their memory to get pet pork programs.

A growing number of Americans are on to your dishonesty, and WE DO NOT CONSENT.


End this slush fund by ending the war! Spend ONLY on a SAFE and speedy withdrawal of the troops from Afghanistan.
