What's really going on?
What is really going on?
Cost and how many wounded during the war so far.
How many deaths on both sides.
Bush is asking for another 249 billion dollars for the war and paying for it by cutting Medicare and Medicaid. Mean while corporations keep getting more and more tax breaks. Why doesn't the president and his administration, the senate and congress give up their extreme wages and only take the new minimum wage. It would be the fair thing to do and lead by example.
Bush said he was a compassionate conservative, what that means is he's compassionate to his rich friends and big business. He keep saying he wants to reform immigration but that means he just wants cheap labor and to drive down wages of everyone else. The first law he insisted on for Iraq was that the people couldn't unionize. Were seeing how pension plans are going form the Airlines, GM, Ford, US Steel, Bethlehem Steel and several other large corporations. Mean while CEO's are walking away with millions to leave the company like Home Depot's CEO who got 210 million for his bad performance. Exxon's CEO walked away with 400 million. The head of the New York Stock Exchange which is a volunteer position and doesn't pay a salary walked away with 250 million retirement package. This was after the stock market was caught selling junk stocks and making 200 billion. When they were caught the fine was 1.2 billion. This show me that crime pays. There was no jail sentences but they were told, "don't do it again."
Bush's idea of a perfect country is if the countries labor laws would go back the 19th century where the robber barons ruled.
Bush has been pushing this "Ownership Society Idea" where everyone banks on buying stocks for their retirement and wealth holdings. Last time people believed the republicans about putting all their earnings into the stock market we had, "The Great Depression." Everyone didn't loss during the great depression, the extremely rich took a loss for a while and bought up all the stocks at real cheap prices. A few years later when the economy recovered those same people became filthy rich. The stocks they bought for pennies when now worth 100's of dollars.
