    Private funds coming in.

    Pull quote....

    ...Republican aides in Congress said that they were drafting legislation to restore the death gratuity and that it could be put to a vote as early as Wednesday. The aides also said they believed that last week's law had covered the payment.
    "We gave broad authority to the Department of Defense to pay all kinds of bills, including this," House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said Tuesday afternoon. "And frankly, I think it's disgraceful that they're withholding these benefits. But again, tomorrow, the House is going to act specifically on this, and I hope the president will sign it."
    But for now, the $100,000 government payment is being withheld for relatives of the five killed over the weekend in Afghanistan — four from the Army and one from the Marines....

    Since Andrea Mitchell broke this, Stompyfoot is unhappy. He's making the funds available now.

    All of this, just to hold onto an illegal congressional exemption. It's almost like they know sumpthin' we don't.

    I just want to say that I really, really like the adjective "Stompyfoot" when describing the President.

    That is all....

    I still prefer my "Great Pretender" moniker despite its receiving criticism last week. It has so much wider parameters than "Stompyfoot" though that, also, is accurate.

    There are so many that fit, it's hard to include them all.
    My personal fav is "ZERO", and "EMPTY SUIT" is a close 2nd.:tongue3:

    I've been known to use "Team Zero".
