  •  Strict Accounting is for "those people". (4.00)
    1000 oversupplied cards are less than the $2.1 million spent hourly on agricultural subsidies. Less than the $8 million that has gone absolutely missing on an average day in Operation Iraqi Freedom for Men Only.

    When did this administration get religion on accountability? Did Tom DeLay call with a better idea for moving money around? Duke Cunningham, house expert on phony transactions? Dennis Hastert, on behalf of the Turkish Committee on Armenian Refugees?

    Accountability: just a weapon at the exclusive discretion of this regime, used only for power, profit, and persecution.

    This is the purest evidence of racism, a presumptive suspicion.

    The program was canceled because the people are suspects, not because the accounting is loose. There is no emergency program with perfect controls aginst waste; this one is as good as you can get. It is obvious that this thoroughly practical response to sudden widespread deprivation is being suspended because the recipients can't be "trusted." Rather ten children should go without, than risk "one of those people" getting an extra month's household supplies.

    I hope in this gigantic awakening there is a connection drawn between the victims of this government and the victims of prosecutorial discretion feeding the prison industry.

    And a connection between the beneficiaries of prosecutorial discretion and the ample flow of replacements they send to prison to serve in their stead.
