  •  I wonder if these crooks (4.00)
    laugh at that American people for their lack of attentiveness to their outrageous, criminal behavior.

    I can just see Norquist, Abramoff, Cheney, Rove, and others without any respect for law or ethics whatsoever, sitting around over drinks one late evening, LAUGHING AND WHOOPING IT UP because the American taxpayers are so stupid and inattentive.  Their attitude: "BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! YOU COMMON PEOPLE ARE SO STUPID!!  WE STEAL BILLIONS OF YOUR TAXPAYER DOLLARS, AND WE LAUGH IN YOUR FUCKING FACES!!!"

      •  My local paper printed my LTE this week: (4.00)

        The true function/purpose of government, as stated in the preamble to the Constitution, and made patently clear by the Katrina tragedy, is to look out for the common welfare of the people. In the face of an overwhelmingly disastrous situation, in which the poorer members of our society, many of whom, through no fault of their own are physically incapable of fending for themselves, such as the elderly and infirm, need help in order to sustain their lives, it is up to the rest of society to either personally, or via government, to reach out and help.

        The problem with government is not government. It is the "Michael Brown Syndrome". It is the problem of a government hijacked by a cabal of ideologues whose true purpose is to enrich themselves on the backs of average citizens, while telling us that government is the problem. It is the problem of a government that no longer functions for the common good because its managers are incompetent friends of George. As one wise Texan observer put it: George W. Bush is great at running, but lousy at governing. What we have is a PR government. The MO of the White House is to paint a picture of compassion and competence, while they steal from the cookie jar, and let the institutions of government decay from within. When things go wrong, instead of taking steps to correct the problem, all the Karl Roves of this world seek to do is more PR, to spread lies to try to make the problem disappear into a he-said/she-said morass. Unfortunately, the Fourth Estate has become Karl's willing mouthpiece, instead of doing the job expected of them by our Founding Fathers: exposing hypocrisy and fraud, and holding the politicians' feet to the fire.

        Anyone who believes that the George W. Bush administration cares one fig about the common citizen is a chump. We've elected a bunch of greedy incompetents who take no responsibility for actually doing the jobs for which they are collecting their six-figure salaries.

        When the GOP says that government is the problem, what they really mean is "look over there" while they siphon off our hard-earned tax-money through their `privatization' schemes, whose real purpose is to enrich their cronies, who, in return, pay for their campaign committees, by contributing our tax-money to the GOP PACs. Instead of working to reduce our tax burden they have shown themselves to be a depraved bunch of elitist parasites who think that compassion is for chumps and government `service' is a free meal ticket to loot and plunder the public treasury.

        We have now seen the true face of `compassionate conservatism': thousands drowned, and dead for lack of water and food, as the George W. Bush White House tries to keep from poking itself in the eye, while telling the rest of us not to "play the blame game."
