Bush critics proved wrong

Once again, those who claim George Bush is a captive of the oil companies have been proved wrong. Bush's plan for an Eastern European missile defense system (presumably to scare off terrorists) has led to Russia's President Putin increasing troop levels. Everywhere, weapons manufacturers are rejoicing, pleased that the monies they put into Bush's campaigns are paying off once again. (see Lords of War).

So Bush critics, hear this, it's not just oil companies, but weapon's manufacturers (three wars and a missile system), heroin importers (after Bush drove the Taliban out of Afghanistan), and tainted meat manufacturers (after Bush eliminated meat inspectors) who have profited from Bush's support.

Rich and Poor Still Equal in Eyes of the Law

"The law, in its majestic equality, forbids the rich as well as the poor to sleep under bridges, to beg in the streets, and to steal bread." (from The Red Lily, Anatole France, 1894)
