Neo-con Round-up Blues

Vietnamese Agent-Orange Baby

Reaction to Maureen Dowd’s NYT column, “My Mitt Fantasy” (10/23) :

I think she is grasping to find something to write about, but talk of a tie is fun, remotely possible, and making the rounds. Her image of Sidekick Joe mugging behind Mitt’s back is great.

But she also reminds us that the NeoCons are the power, drawing the huge money from those few warmonger industrialists, and feeding it to Mitt’s folks.  They inflict the US to policy decisions based on how much money will go into a few evil pockets, not on what is best for the country, or the world’s future.

Those are the same neo-cons who backed Nixon, profited from Vietnam, and push decisions like dropping planeloads of “Round-Up” weed killer (agent orange) onto hundreds of square miles of populated forest land so a chemical company owner can pocket millions of taxpayer dollars, pretending it to be a war tactic.  (For those who don’t recall:  it sickened and killed friend, foe, us, them, the animals, and a big patch of the planet for decades.)

Scott Brown: Abs You Can Believe In

On NPR this morning Elizabeth Warren was asked about her views as opposed to Brown…Duh.

We all remember what Bush said when asked His opinion on Row versus Wade??  (He didn’t care how they got out of New Orleans, but they had to Leave Town.!.)

Gee, when you let Nature wipe out minority property owners it’s quicker than a giant mortgage bond scam…
…and privatize the clean-up to Dick Cheney, who left the illegal workers unpaid on the street while stealing on the billing and ignoring employer FICA, …
…it can make almost as much money as creating and privatizing a war, to Dick Cheney.

The term neo-con seems to have been squelched. You remember it?  The Neo-cons came in with Nixon. You recall the photo of Rumsfeld hugging Saddam Hussein in the White House?

These neo-cons have not left the stage, merely stepped out of the limelight. Cheney, Bush, Rumsfeld, even bumbling fools like Ashcroft, are still around. Nixon got taken out of the picture, the rest kept going. Forty of their folks were indicted in Reagan’s first term, breaking the corruption record set by General Grant during “reconstruction”.
