1. Oil, Limbaugh, and the rightwingnut agenda...
The war has now cost us $500 billion plus

Rightwingers are painting the illegal aliens as the culprits. The illegals are here, supposedly having their wages withheld for income taxes etc and sales taxes etc., and if anybody should go to jail it should be the employers who've made a mint off them and didn't want to hire US nationals in the first place. Secondly, the projected costs of the 'war' in Iraq (actually an occupation) is now at $3 Trillion (or about a fourth of national GDP which is $13 trillion). Lots of other things could have been paid for with that.

Rent the movie Three Days Of The Condor, with Robert Redford and Faye Dunaway to see what the NYTimes didn't do , the Times helped get us INTO Iraq.

2. The reverse of "Tax havens for the super rich would be in danger" is
They know Hillary is "one of them" and a viable alternative to McCain.
