Rice: Handmaiden to evil...
Handmaiden to evil

George Bush and his handmaiden, Condoleezza Rice, speak a strange language that is understood only by the denizens of the American bubble. It is a language of aggression, pure and simple an American Manifest Destiny that threatens the sovereignty of every other nation on the planet, but pretends to be a liberating force. Bush also delivered an implicit threat to those Americans who resist involvement in his savage crusade: We are led, by events and common sense, to one conclusion: The survival of liberty in our land increasingly depends on the success of liberty in other lands, said Bush in his inaugural address. The best hope for peace in our world is the expansion of freedom in all the world. It is difficult to avoid the conclusion that the Bush men (and woman) are prepared to declare domestic opponents of his imperial policies to be threats to internal American liberties.

1. Funny you mention "Handmaiden"-I've been thinking of Margaret
Atwood's book "A Handmaid's Tale" a lot lately and how the ideas, concepts and descriptions of Gilead and the role of women, in particular "Handmaids" is portrayed....

We are well on our way to being Gilead, both from environmental pollution and its repercussions to the role of women.

I will however say that I don't believe Condi Rice to be a woman of any sorts....she is more like the barren women in the story of a "Handmaid's Tale" who is married to the Commander and lets her "husband" have sex with the handmaid....so maybe the real "Handmaiden" is Laura? :eyes:

2. and our middle class declines without a blink from BushCo

from your link:

......The military fiasco in Iraq has shown that these are weak cards, yet the only response from the Bush Pirates is to threaten further aggression in Iran, Syria, Venezuela, and Cuba. Ironically, the corporate class that Bush serves is the least patriotic of all, ready and eager to abandon the homeland to its economic fate in favor of greener pastures in Asia. Bernie Sanders, the socialist congressman from Vermont, exposed these rich traitors for what they are, in a recent issue of In These Times:

Amazingly, while the U.S. middle class declines, corporate America is helping make China the economic superpower of the 21st century. Not only is China rapidly becoming the manufacturing center of the world, it is quickly becoming the information technology hub as well. Andy Grove, the founder of Intel, predicted last year that the United States will lose the bulk of its information technology jobs to China and India over the next decade. These are some of the best-paying jobs available......
