20. an unholy "vision"
Edited on Wed Sep-14-05 10:42 AM by Neecy
A top aide said he will stress that New Orleans officials will dictate how the city will be rebuilt, but will also make plain the reconstruction should reflect his vision of government -- including reducing regulatory obstacles and emphasizing entrepreneurship over big government, the aide said.

Keep in mind that in the mad world of the Bush administration, "entrepreneurship" means no-bid contracts for his wealthy campaign donors and Halliburton, and "reducing regulatory obstacles" means gutting the Clean Air and Water acts, reducing EPA standards and having their newly-minted minimum wage workers in New Orleans being subjected to working in a toxic dump without legal recourse (their beloved 'tort reform) if they sicken from the toxins and die.

What kind of sick 'vision' is this? Why are we, the people, putting up with it? Who's going to protect us from the Bush administration slow-death sentence? The Democrats who are about to confirm John Roberts, who will enable all of these crimes?
