Overwhelm

Some days the bad news flys at you so fast … it seems like the Bush strategy is to overwhelm people by doing so many bad things that you lose track and give up… (See Scorecard of Evil. They list the major ones, except even they have a hard time keeping up.)

Today starts with, With White House Approval, E.P.A. Pollution Report Omits Global Warming Section. Here’s one – using government money to fund churches. Or how about funneling government money to help The Party recruit religious voters – vote for us, you get the money – don’t vote for us, you don’t get the money.

Here’s one about the Bush people planning the Iraq invasion even before he took office. Not only that, it’s essentially a blueprint for dominating the world. (Why spend all that money on military if you don’t put it to good use taking over the world?)

Here they’re talking about the spoils of war being the reason for the war. “The importance of Iraq’s oil has made it potentially one of the administration’s biggest bargaining chips in negotiations to win backing from the U.N. Security Council and Western allies…”

The White House and Administration departments are not cooperating with Congressional investigations of what led up to 9/11.

This isn’t Bush, it’s his comrades, Christian stations working to get NPR stations thrown off the air.

The pharmaceutical industry will be running ads for Republicans who help them kill prescription drug bills.

Those thee Moslem men who were falsely accused in Florida are no longer welcome at the hospital they were travelling to work at – even though they did nothing wrong at all.

To top it off, the housing price bubble might be ready to burst.

This is just a little bit of today’s news. Maybe I should just stop reading the papers on Sunday mornings?
