I find things very hilarious today. Well, yesterday, Labor day. The day when we are supposed to celebrate Labor. The whole day passed me by. I believe traditionaly, our president gave us a speech regarding labor and it's contribution. It was somehow absent this time. Was it because our president was in a country without any labor unions? I've heard about Iraq's politcal parties. Any labor unions? Does KBR have a union of labor that Bush spoke too?

    Ive been thinking about putting this to text for a while. Not, just the president forgetting labor on Labor Day but, how come I know so little about Iraq's economic and labor policies. Go ahead and look it up. You cannot find the economic policies of a single Iraqi political party in power. Sure you can find the communists and whatever, those policies were invented during the enlightment. Obviously, these economic policy parties have no chance in Iraq. SO the question is, How come we dont know about the economic policies of any Iraqi politcal party?

Isn't this what the Oil law is about right? If these Islamic parties were capitalists, they would approve it right away. If they were Socialists, theres no chance the US will get it passed. But, all I hear about is Sunni and Shia crap.

Ummmmm, this is about money. This is about economic theory. The former country known as Iraq is a proving grounds on both sides. For most Iraqies, its about respect and life, which includes religion, honor, family, respect. For the Neocons? It's really about economic theory. How freedom, though they dont explain they want economic freedom, but confuse it with political freedom, is really what Iraqies want.

I want to explain freedom, because freedom isnt all in the same. Freedom is defined on how you use it. For instance, political freedom and economic freedom is far from the same thing. Political freedom is the freedom to vote, freedom of the press etc. Economic freedom is the freedom to privitize. Bush tries to confuse these things extremly well.

Iraq, has always been a prize, from every empire whose conquered it, from the Assyrians to the modern day empires of Europe, this has always been about money. Cyrus the great to Saladin. MONEY. The Orient Express to the Dreadnaught. Money. OIL, gold, culture, yea ummm, money.

Sigh's, I wish I was more elegant but, I cant think of elegant things to say. Well no, Im too lazy to figure out links and reference everything. Hence da rant.

I find it more than ironic that our president, on Labor Day, is in a country with absolutley no Labor rights whats so ever. Like, the war on terror is more important than the entire worlds workforce.

Whatever, It's business as usual.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Really - there are 5 days in a week.  He gets up (we assume) and goes to work - but what fills his calendar?

    The only things I can think of is raising money for some other GOP gasbag or going to military bases and telling those poor kids that we're winning the war on terrorism, especially in Iraq.

    What else does he do?

    had to Rec you, now put up a dang ol' tip jar!

    Typical of W to celebrate Labor Day by ignoring Labor.  I wonder if Blackwater is organized?
