1 Killed Clinton's "ergonomic" rules that OSHA was about to implement; rules would have shut down every home business in America.
2 Reduced and is working to ultimately eliminate the estate tax for family farms and ranches.
3 Grant a complete tax exemption for prepaid or college tuition savings plans.
4 Told the Congress and the world, "America will never seek a permission slip to defend the security of our country."
5 Killed the liberal ABA's unconstitutional role in vetting federal judges. The Senate is supposed to advise and consent, not the ABA
6 Ordered Attorney General Ashcroft to formally notify the Supreme Court that the OFFICIAL U.S. government position on the 2nd Amendment is that it supports INDIVIDUAL rights to own firearms, and is NOT a Leftist-imagined "collective" right.
1. Now that one really ranks up there with the "Emancipation Proclamation". And I bet FDR wishes had re-titled his speech "The only thing we have to fear is the enforcement of ergonomic industry laws on home businesses."
2. Kiss those good bye:
You got yourself to blame for that one. If all the rich pricks who own million-dollar farms and ranches (you have to have a total of over 6 million bucks in total assets to even QUALIFY for the estate tax) had actually paid those taxes instead, maybe the GOP wouldn't have chiseled a few hundred million out that would have fixed the levies. For being a bunch of cheapass chilsers, you are now going to get stuck with a tab you can't avoid this time. Never mind the fact that the tax cuts you brag on were totally financed by deficits, meaning that all you people did was steal from everyone's kids so you could have even more money, while the middle class and the poor got the shaft as usual. The number of people living in poverty in this country has risen by 4 million people under Bush. Some accomplishment.
3. Another one that will rank up there with "Washington's fairwell address".
4. The biggest tragedy at all. If we had worked Iraq the way Clinton would have - through the UN, 2,000 Americans and thousands of Iraqis would not have been militarily murdered by a bunch of incompetant God damn fools who based a needless war on a bunch of trumped-up bullshit so they could steal Iraqi oil.
5. Yes, our selection process is so improved. Now instead of competance we get political cronies, like our famous former head of The Arabian Horsebreeder's Association, who is also coincidently now the former head of FEMA. For the last three days the Houston Chronicle has been running a series on the other incompetant morons who have been put in charge of high government office, even tho their only accomplishment seems to be raising trust-fund money for the GOP. We in Houston are quaking in our boots that the hurricane aimed at us is about to be managed by the same bunch of idiots who ran Katrina.
6. Bang, bang, shoot shoot.
