Bottom-Line Patriotism

Welcome to the world Bush has created for you.

Corporations reign, the bottom line is the new patriotism, CEO's are the new lawmakers, legislators are their capo enforcers, citizens the extorted.

Our Constitution-gutting Attorney General Gonzales works for these corporations who want to cheaply employ illegal aliens... so border enforcement is ignored and our port operations are sold to the highest bidder.... he throws law enforcers who try to stem the drug-running border invaders in prison and fires judges who don't toe the Bush administration political line.

This highest law-enforcer-in-our-land receives his marching orders from an alcohol-stunted frat boy.... The Decider, who revels in his high-fives from his fat-cat corporate buddies

Now, enabled by the very laws passed by the last GOP-majority Congress, many of these same power-bloated corporations are moving their headquarters to other countries, thereby avoiding paying taxes to the country and the people they have trashed.... "Halliburton Chief's Move to Dubai Evokes Warning on Hill."

This war-profiteering, no-bid contract company once run by VP Cheney is thumbing its nose.

Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) said of Halliburton's move, "This is an insult to the U.S. soldiers and taxpayers who paid the tab.... they'll be avoiding U.S. taxes."

What will be done about it?.... Congress will hold too-little too-late hearings on Halliburton's over-charge contracts.

Welcome to the New World Order.
