  •  Our governmental leadership (4.00)
    is made up of people that have at the very least a contempt and at worst a death-wish for Government.  Yes, the barbarians are not at the gate, they are guarding it.  

    They live in an executive terrarium that emerses them in the ether of big-business.  The middle-class is an abomination to these leaders.  A large middle-class, by definition, means that labor is expensive - period (by "they" I mean Cheney, Delay, Frist, Bush, Rove, Norquist, Abramof and their clubs).

    The corporation is the favored citizen.  The person is a pain-in-the-ass requiring food, shelter, clothes, a modicum of "education" (not too much - an educated worker is a union leader waiting to happen), medicine, entertainment and all the rest.  When the worker starts demanding goods and services that should be reserved for the Executive Class, he has then succeeded in burrowing up the back of business's well-pressed slacks.  And they got there via an escort from Mr. Roosevelt's Sugar Mountain style of government.  

    Well, according to the Cheney-Rove-Abramof society, it's time to say goodbye to the barkers and the colored balloons.  If you don't want to write code or press bumpers for five dollars an hour, we will send the work to a land that exists outside of the influence of Mr. Roosevelt's sensibilities.

    Oh, and Merry fucking Christmas.
