Well, here we go again. As the taxpayers await their annual plucking, prodigals in Congress are scheming to extract new taxes and increase their lavish spending, at the same time they pretend to cut back.

Here are some of the facts government officials did not tell us.

Saddam Hussein put millions into his luxurious palaces. I believe he had 12 of said palaces. Unbelievable.

And, oh, yes, the big wealth- the oil wells in Iraq.

I was told by a military man in Minot that he had been walking along in Iraq and Saudi Arabia and when he looked down, his boots were wet with oil. He told me oil was everywhere.

Where have Iraq’s millions gone?
