The GDP of Iceland only something like $19 Billion. You can find that much money between the seat cushions of the US Senate.

I know it is a constitutionally-framed republic with a parliamentary form of government. Aside from that, I really don't know what side of the proverbial "fence" the parties sit on.

Just found this. Good read.

Many Senators have tried to find other things between the sea cushions. I would make sure you use a glove.

BO to the rescue - its in the cards.

This nitwit will dole out taxpayer money to
everyone and anyone - illegals, ACORN, people
who file taxes and don't pay anything but get
a charity check, international abortion agencies
and the list goes on.

Maybe Islamic Terrorist groups can file for a
bail out and then sue us in the UN because we
dismantled their groups.

All you working stiffs who voted for this clown - your gonna get what you deserve - you voted it
in - you live with it - the only ones that have
the right to complain are those that voted
against that idiot.

Stalin may have been to the right of Mao.

And Uncle Ho may have been to the right of Pol Pot.

But they were all still lefties compared to the US.
