What about the useless legislation to rebuild New Orleans and control the water around the "Big Easy?" The Bush Regime's legislation to accomplish this has done little more than, like its precedents, distract the American people from previous back burnered "projects,"but accomplish nothing more.
Remember the non-starters like; Hurricane Katrina relief, "No Child Left Behind,"Social Security, and "Immigration" issues, the increasing mass of legal catastrophes of the Bush Cartel and many other road kills run down by George to diminsh the gaggle of buzzards hovering over his and his regime's pasty asses?
In fact, one cannot but wonder if this mountain of fecal obfuscation isn't the ONLY reason for all these legislative bombs. HR 4437 is a glowing example of this idea for my money.
Despite all the garbage being flung around about "border security," it isn't really the problem. Not one terrorist has been known to cross the Southern Border of the US. Now we can't say the same about the NORTHERN border though.
The Homeland security department is no more ready to act now than it was on the drawing table. FEMA being considered for the dump for the same reason. George's cronies are going to court on criminal charges in record number! The line of miscreants looks like one for free beer!
Members of the White House staff playing musical chairs with one of the chairs having a false floor under it.
Now a Third White House Press Secretary hired to hurl BushBilge. Perhaps continuous lying has softened some of these people to the point where they can't do it anymore.
I've wondered why these "reporters" even show up for press conferences when they know damned well that all they'll receive is another trash can of Georgespeak.
The "Offense" Industry still collects billions wasted on worthless military technology contracts. As of yet, still untested in battle. Boondoggles like New classes of Submarines like the Virginia class to replace relatively recent "Seawolf" class. Two new flattops to be named after Reagan and Bush Sr, and aircraft that are neither stealthy nor airworthy. Airplanes can glide without power. These boats can't. Remember now, this applies to the F-117A, the F-22, and the F-35 as well!
Take the B-2 Bomber for example, and the republicans view on this plane; "so what if it doesn't fly!, can't we just take fifteen computers and MAKE it fly?" Which Northrop did, and promptly shoved it up the Air Force's collective ass. Now, all the while the Government knew the B-52 wasn't retiring.
In all of the recent Bush wars, the Venerable B-52 did over 75% of the heavy bombing. Whilst the B-2 boys were flying their 36 hour nonstop roundtrip flight from Whiteman Air Force Base just to drop ONE payload on Iraq, and high as a kite on amphetamines, the B-52 boys had just gotten out of bed, had their coffee and walked out to the aircraft.
To be "battle tested" means that your men and equipment have faced an organized formidable enemy with some military sophistication and won. Not that you flew over a battle zone without getting your ass shot off.
In the same way that duck hunters use decoys to draw the birds into shooting range, the US military is using Iraqi mental cases for the same reason. The disparity in numbers of dead is far too great for there to be actual fire fight contact between the US and the Iraqi insurgents.
Why even some of George's 20,000 mercenaries are pulling out along with other members of the "coalition of the mentally challenged," and free money club.
