68. Hey mad!! I've been re reading Naomi Klein's. The Shock Doctrine
and I get a churning feeling in the pit of my stomach like we're being Shock Doctrined right here at home. I heard an interview on XM 167 earlier today with David Bender and 2 other guys whose names I don't recall...long story short
Ms. Klein mentioned Katrina and how the Bush** misadmisinstration went to the Heritage Foundation and came up with 32 different ways to privatize services in NOLA, and the priviatized fire serives in CA during last year's fires.

The 2 most recent examples that she mentioned: Sec. Paulsson's declaration that Soc. Sec. should be privatized during the housing/bank crisis; the other being that people are literally being held over a barrel and pushing off shore drilling will be ramrodded through.

I felt better in a way as I felt in my gut that 'The Shock Doctrine' was being implemented here and I wasn't so crazy anymore, yet sad, that so many Americans would fall for it.

Keep up the good work! :patriot: :hi:
