Bu$hWorld--The End Game

By       (Page 1 of 5 pages)   6 comments

      Ever since the November election, the mainstream media has tended to focus its one-tracked mind on presidential-elect Barack Obama--second guessing his every move, and wondering why he hasn’t already ended the war in Iraq, made peace in the Mid-East and fixed the economy. One MSNBC commentator (referring to Obama’s reaction to some international crisis) actually said, “This could be the defining moment of the Obama presidency”.


NEWS FLASH!!!---Barack Obama is not the president. I know many Americans and most of the rest of the world wishes he was, but he is not. George W. Bush is still President, and his administration is working overtime to do as much damage as possible before they leave.


·        “George Bush is behaving like a furious defaulter whose home is about to be repossessed. Smashing the porcelain, ripping the doors off their hinges, he is determined that there will be nothing worth owning by the time the bastards kick him out.”--George Monbiot, The Guardian, 11/25/08




     In its waning days, the Bush Administration has enacted or is working to implement rules and regulations that will...


·        ...allow states to charge premiums and higher co-payments for medical care and prescription drugs provided to low-income people under Medicaid. (The New York Times, 11/27/08)


·        ...change the Family and Medical Leave Act to “make it more difficult for employees to use paid vacation or personal days when they take leave for medical or family emergencies.” (The Wall Street Journal, 11/20/08)


·        ...allow authorities to spy on organizations and individuals that exhibit “suspicious” behavior--even if there is no suspicion of criminal activities. This would be things like protesting a war or disagreeing with the president.
