The forces of the dark side are exposed in domestic policies.
Yes, once again the forces of the dark side are exposed and it is ugly! The feckless, reckless, ballsless, dickless, Cheney is hovering somewhere trying to steal the pennies off a dead men's eyes.
The article "Bremer's Crates of money in Iraq --How the US sent $12bn in cash to Iraq. And watched it vanish."at
states "The US flew nearly $12bn in shrink-wrapped $100 bills into Iraq, then distributed the cash with no proper control over who was receiving it and how it was being spent.
The staggering scale of the biggest transfer of cash in the history of the Federal Reserve has been graphically laid bare by a US congressional committee.
In the year after the invasion of Iraq in 2003 nearly 281 million notes, weighing 363 tonnes, were sent from New York to Baghdad for disbursement to Iraqi ministries and US contractors. Using C-130 planes, the deliveries took place once or twice a month with the biggest of $2,401,600,000 on June 22 2004, six days before the handover.
Details of the shipments have emerged in a memorandum prepared for the meeting of the House committee on oversight and government reform which is examining Iraqi reconstruction. Its chairman, Henry Waxman, a fierce critic of the war, said the way the cash had been handled was mind-boggling. "The numbers are so large that it doesn't seem possible that they're true. Who in their right mind would send 363 tonnes of cash into a war zone?"
They terrorized us by GWOT and then when the common masses were good and cowed, and just praying that a natural disaster didn't hit their area, they began dismantling our civil rights.
The article "In Mississippi, Poor Lag in Hurricane Aid" at click here states "Like the other Gulf Coast states battered by Hurricane Katrina, Mississippi was required by Congress to spend half of its billions in federal grant money to help low-income citizens trying to recover from the storm. But so far, the state has spent $1.7 billion in federal money on programs that have mostly benefited relatively affluent residents and big businesses. The money has gone to compensate many middle- and upper-income homeowners, to aid utility companies whose equipment was damaged and to prop up the state's insurance system....
And while that total will certainly increase, Mississippi has set aside just 23 percent of its $5.5 billion grant money - $1.25 billion - for these programs.
About 37 percent of the residents of the state's coast are low income, according to federal figures.
Mississippi is the only state for which the Bush administration has waived the rule that 50 percent of its Community Development Block Grants be spent on low-income programs, according to the Department of Housing and Urban Development, which administers the program. It is also the only state to ask for such waivers.
State officials, from Gov. Haley Barbour on down, insist that the state does not discriminate by race or income when it hands out aid to storm victims."
Why is Barbour the one thug steal money from the needy?
http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=Haley_Barbour states "Haley Barbour is the Republican Governor of Mississippi. Barbour won the Mississippi gubernatorial election on November 4, 2003, in part on a pledge to keep Mississippi's state flag design intact, which contains a miniature representation of the Confederate battle flag.
While campaigning, he also appeared at a fund-raiser sponsored by the Conservative Citizen's Council. The CCC is a modern-day version of the White Citizen's Councils that fought racial integration throughout the South in the 1950s and 60s."
Basically, there is little, if any, difference between this goon and David Duke. Switch the CCC for KKK and they are the same.
"Between 1993 and January 1997 Barbour was the Chairman of the Republican National Committee and has strong ties to both George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush."
