Ouch

High-ranking British Officer gives ush Administration Sound paddling.

This is just stupid, if you want to collect more money for the Potentate, go after the people who have money -- the rich guys who pay expensive lawyers a lot of money to weasel out of their fair share of the common tab. To pick on the poor, and the middle class, the more vulnerable is thuggish and bullying behavior.

Interesting reaction from Unexpected Source on the Mining Disaster.

Save The Rich

Unbelievable. Well, Neil, we could have an official policy to save the rich first in the event of a national catastrophe, but I expect it's more likely we'll eat them instead.

Corporate Slavery?

This, from the Chicago Tribune, is very scary:
"I am done for."
Before he could explain, before his brother could come to the phone, the line went dead. It was the last message he left for his family.
They had no way to know, but Bishnu Hari would soon be on his way to a war zone--not the job he had been promised at a luxury hotel in Jordan..
After leaving Nepal, Bishnu Hari would become entangled in the illicit system delivering cheap labor from impoverished countries to U.S. military bases throughout Iraq..
On Aug. 19, 2004, about three weeks after he tried to phone his brother, Bishnu Hari would be among 12 Nepalis kidnapped from an unprotected caravan in Iraq. They were on their way to work for a major subcontractor of KBR, the Halliburton subsidiary that runs military support operations in Iraq.

Thanks to 100 Monkeys Typing for this link.

Meet the Third Bush Twin, Flora

She's the white sheep of the family.

Watch her video.

Rude.

But not as rude as torture, stupidly fought wars, tax cuts for the rich, obscene budget and trade deficits, corporate cronyism and corruption, all delivered with a warm smile and brainwashing charm.
