Speaking of our government at work, I must say I feel much more at ease knowing that GW has issued "The National Strategy for Pandemic Influenza".
They have such a winning record..I feel safe now...don't you? LOL

Just another funnel to those who already have too much.

While we're all focusing on "big oil" lately, let's not lose sight of the fact that the pig at the trough right next to that one is the pharmaceutical industry. Just because the government spent a ton of money on something doesn't mean it has bought us anything meaningful.

That is the intent of this administration. That IS their objective. The proposed "cause" is just an excuse to start the funding funnel.

It's not trickle down, not even Voodoo economics. GW is a proponent of "slash and burn" economics.

You don't mind ineffectual government? Or people strong-arming your money away from you for their own selfish wants?
Wow.
You must have been born really rich.
