"In the face of Armageddon, I will not compromise in this"

Bush Makes Last Push to Deregulate.

Its always impressive to see people stick by their core values in the face of adversity, even when the adversity includes overwhelming empirical evidence and common sense. Allan Greenspan himself may have conceded that deregulation caused the banking crises, but Bushco stands firm in their belief in radically unfettered markets. I'd say there was a certain nobility to their doggedness, except for the fact that shit like this could get us all killed.

Having core values implies having a core. I very strongly believe that BushCo lack this.

Mendacity--it's not just for breakfast!

These are evil individuals. I think it's time we simply recognized that, then took the appropriate action.

The best to you and this blog--
