Barfing Through History, or Let 'Em Eat Cake

I'm hungover. When I'm hungover, I get philosophical. I'll drink my V-8 and try to wake up a little bit here, but meanwhile let's take a march through recent history. Yesterday I'm sitting in a doctor's office reading their copy of U.S. News & World Report. Two good op-eds. The first about the Republican effort to eliminate the middle class. Part of the NWO plan? Nothing but workers working round the clock. Paying toll to the trolls who run it. Approximately 2% of the population. Thirty percent more millionaires now than there were before the start of the Iraq war. War profiteers then. Get rid of the Estate Tax forever. Make the tax cuts permanent. Oink, oink, oink. Pigs looking out for their pig friends. So only those making less than $100,000 a year really ever pay any taxes. Meanwhile do away with Medicare and Social Security. All expenses there come from out of pocket. Drive the middle class directly into the ground. Let 'em eat cake.

Meanwhile Afghanistan is producing more opium than ever before. In fact, opium production has doubled in the past year with Hamid at the helm. Who's profiting? Who profits? More opium, thus more heroin. Heroin killing millions worldwide yearly. Stories of black planes, drones, spraying crops. Taliban back in charge, running the show.

Things aren't looking good but no one would know from a Bush press conference. Nothing but platitudes, and good ole boy rosy assessments. Does Bush ever get briefed on anything? Doesn't seem so. Meanwhile...from Kos:

"Sen. Chuck Hagel is angry. He's upset about the more than 1,700 U.S. soldiers killed and nearly 13,000 wounded in Iraq. He's also aggravated by the continued string of sunny assessments from the Bush administration, such as Vice President Dick Cheney's recent remark that the insurgency is in its 'last throes.' 'Things aren't getting better; they're getting worse. The White House is completely disconnected from reality,' Hagel tells U.S. News. "It's like they're just making it up as they go along. The reality is that we're losing in Iraq.' "

Who's steering the ship? Shadow government?
