Bush's America Part 2: The Other Side of the Fence Tuesday, September 06, 2005

George Bush is part of the ruling class of America. They've got more everything. Cynicus dug this up from Talking Points Memo, Josh Marshall's blog. his got a lot of good entries but this one is particularly noteworthy because it points out just who Bush and his ruling class works for and that is themselves and the money:

There's going to be so much money flowing that Joe Allbaugh might even be convinced to bring his influence-peddling operation stateside again. In fact, if you were ever planning to become a Republican or give money to Republicans, by all means, do it now. Because all of the GOP patronage and pay-for-play operation that we've seen up till this point was probably just a prelude to what's coming.

Just set together a few pieces of the puzzle.

FEMA Director Michael Brown got his job as a political patronage position, with no relevant experience and the last item on his resume getting fired from a job as a manager of horse shows. Last year he was caught giving out FEMA money as political pork with an eye to the 2004 elections. But that shouldn't surprise since people who get hired as part of patronage operations do their jobs as part of the patronage operation. That's the idea.


Response

There's a lot more to the story talking about where the contracts will go and a lot of other bits of information. Unfortuantely, this is another chapter in George Bush's America. Halliburton's making a bit of money in this mess as is a number of other companies. But it's all in the energy manipulating elite that rules George Bush's America.

Halliburton already - already- has a $500 billion cost-plus no competition contract to repair Katrina damage to Navy property on the Gulf.

How does one buy stock in Halliburton? i want some. Guaranteed to make high profits for 3 more years - backed by the full faith and credit of the United States Government.

Oops, i meant "million". I'm getting too accustomed to dealing with Bushite Republican "careful, conservative, fiscally-sound money management".
