The roughly $555 billion bill -- which passed 76-17 -- also preserves thousands of earmarks for lawmakers who will deliver them to constituents just in time for the holidays.

Yes, well tis the season dont you know, and what better way to say merry xmas then to have a .22 caliber round slammed through your head courtesy of the USA. Or for one of our troops to be blown apart by a roadside bomb. It is just great, really makes you want to celebrate the seasons when good men and women are over playing games for the socio paths that run this country.

When does this excessive spending come to a halt? The majority of this country is opposed to the war, when will they get it through their heads that we want it over, we dont want anymore needless deaths, or more spending. They dont care because we have left them go too long without holding them accountable for their actions, it needs to stop, for the country to survive it needs to stop.
