Bush's Final Hour Means Destruction of Rights and ProgramsPerspective by Tim King Salem-News.com
You people elected this guy?
(SALEM, Ore.) - I have said from the beginning that W. is probably the anti-Christ and I believe it more than ever. To think that this poor excuse of a man was able to slime his way into office at all is disturbing enough, and now we learn of his final agenda to take his final shots at women, poor and elderly people, as well as the very land that comprises our nation. I can't say it is surprising.
George W. is going out with a real bang.
Of course in the spirit of "Christianity", Bush has crafted a new rule permitting workers to refuse to perform abortions, dispense birth control pills, or even provide emergency contraception in rape cases.
Bush is reducing outpatient services for poor people covered under Medicaid. This is likely to mean cuts in such basics as dental and vision care, diagnostic screenings for children, and lab and ambulance services.
He wants to clamp down on the Family and Medical Leave Act, which allows workers to take unpaid leave to take care of sick family members. Why would Bush care about such an important act? He never had to work for anything.
In order to make the workplace less safe and allow his scumbag polluter friends to make more cash, W. is revising the Occupational Safety and Health Administration regulations that make it more difficult to limit on-the-job exposure to toxic chemicals. I just re-watched an old movie last night called "Nightbreaker" about Atomic and Nuclear testing at the Nevada Test Site in the 50's. The reality is that our beloved government always used to recreate new numbers for "safe" levels of toxic exposure. Now Bush wants to do it again.
This lame duck president has it in for environmental law, something else that limits his friend's monetary gains, and he is taking aim in this area before leaving office. This includes numerous environmental changes that would permit oil and gas leases on public lands, more air pollution near national parks and forests, increased dumping by mining companies into streams, and erosion of the Endangered Species Act.
I suppose we all get what we deserve, as a nation capable of electing this baboon. Of course we really didn't elect him and people who have studied the issues know that. Hell, he said he would win Florida the first time around, that was his quote, "You mark my words, we Will win Florida!.
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. That has never been more true. Incredibly, our nation has been able to do the impossible in electing Barack Obama to the Oval Office. Of course a nation comprised largely of bigots would typically have a hard time achieving such a thing, but we did it. This proves to me that there is hope, and we will all see life improve when this character parading as a leader finally packs his bags. Of course we didn't really know how many bigots there were in the U.S.A. until the election, but that is all a matter of record now.
