but, if I were you and all the other females on this BB, I would take one minute and go back and read that article. Then, I would think about exactly what it is that these two home senators have achieved. Then, I would take another minute, and go back and read it again. I would do this about a half dozen times. And then, I would ask myself, "exactly how many federal dollars has my two senators brought into my state with this bill?" This is politics at its' worst. The senators oughta be ashamed and embarrassed if this is the best they can do for their state, or for the nation. They asked for and received crumbs. Since Sept. 11, the front pages have been full of signed bills sending 400 million dollars for this and 100 mill for that, ( I will take time tonight to read some front page archives and be specific). But the gist is, we have spent >4 billion dollars in four months. And your senators are mugging it up with the prez for photo's for the newspapers and constituents back home and for what? Why not CANCEL all loan fees for reservists? Why not say, "Look, instead of sending Israel $7,000,000,000 (seven billion dollars) this year, let send them $6,500,000,000 (six and a half billion) and cancel the school loans for our reservists? Now, that would be an achievement. I am a women's libber from way back. But these women did not do much. The boys on the hill simply said, "Let's give the girls something to take home," It is a cheap gift ,,,,cheap, cheap, cheap...and the girls should be embarrassed . We can force the boys to let us play the game, but they STILL do not allow us to share in the winnings.
