Got caught up on the way home, ended up missing the SotU. Did he happen to call out to his boys Ken Lay and Jeff Skilling who also gave their opening remarks yesterday? Someone really missed a chance to do a cross promotion media event there.

January 24, 2006⇒ Coverage of the “Health Savings Accounts” that BushCo will unroll at the State of the Union.
Not only divides the “well from the sick, the young from the old”, but will force a race to the bottom discrimination against traditional managed risk approaches.

Frodo Failed. Bush Got the Ring
Charlie Stross on the oddly short sighted psychoses of our current administration
I have an itchy feeling that it’s no coincidence that Bush is the first US President to be an MBA, and that this stuff is happening on his watch. Moreover, their attitude to dissent can be explained by the hypothesis that they’re trying to run the USA like a corporation rather than a country.
March 21, 2004⇒ MoveOn is collecting top 50 “Bush in 30 seconds” ads on DVD.
Including the one Todd did the soundtrack for. Congrats!0. (Aside bush)
Bush has launched a new series of TV ads which have alternately been described as an “outrageous attempt to use tragedy to score political points”, “using our dead relatives as a springboard for his campaign”, and “his only message seems to be ‘its not my fault’.”
However I can’t comment, as the ads are only available as Windows Media files. Just in case you needed another reason not to like the man.
Its like a bad joke…
What does it mean to force workers back to work who got locked out? I have this image of the Longshoremen being squished through the chain link fences of the Oakland docks like dough from a cookie press, or cheese through a grater.
Hey! Did you the hear one about the dockworker strike in California?
Yeah, the management locked our the workers and refuses to let them back to work, but don’t worry the president is going to enforce Taft-Hartley, and end the strike.
Ha! Ha! Ha!
Everything you know is wong
- Its not a strike
- The Longshoremen aren’t opposed to technology
- ILWU has specifically said it would like expedite any shipments concerning national security but can’t get back on the docks
- The best way to have a mediation is not for the management to show up to it armed.
