What Were They Thinking?

Oh yeah, that $600 dollar rebate is really going to help the economy. Not. What kind of idiot do you have to be to believe that $600 is going to help people who have lost their homes, their children are living with friends who still have a home and the parents are living in separate shelters? That would be Bush and his enablers, the Dumocrats. If he made a sharp left turn, most of them would break their neck since it's so far up his ass.

The only person this so called economic stimulus package is going to help is big business. As if the oil companies need any help. Welcome to corporate America where business profits are more important than the people. What do you want to bet that they take their business incentives and spend them outside the country? And why does anybody consider getting a check in May to be quick? Four months from now the checks will arrive at homes that are empty or checking accounts that have been closed because of a lack of funds. Or maybe they've been deported. Yes, we seem to send native born Americans to countries they've never seen.

Every once in a while you run into a story that makes you deeply ashamed to belong to a country that abuses children. Why they took these kids to an orphanage and didn't tell the guards in charge that they hadn't done anything wrong, isn't just wrong, it's criminal. Strip searched, forced to shower in front of security staff and put under surveillance for over 24 hours because their mother was admitted to the hospital for pneumonia. Their mom had to leave the hospital in her pajamas to get them out. And now the mother is being investigated for being ill. Way to go New York.

Have uniform, will use power badly. Whatever you do, don't get in the way of a cop and his dinner order.

The only bright spot to this story, is that it didn't take place in America. Suing the parents of a boy you ran over and killed so you can repair your luxury vehicle is the height of arrogance and inconsideration. I wonder how long before someone tries that here.

I'm not surprised. Not surprised at all. Anybody who thinks that Bush and his cronies are going to pay for their crimes, is not in touch with reality. Heck, they can't even be investigated.
