The Price of Idiocy
Foreign Governments Buying America
Bush is an idiot
||Partnership for a Secure America -- December 24
Sovereign Funds Threatening Our Sovereignty?
America has suffered a profound loss of international
influence and respect over the course of the Bush administration.
While most of the attention has focused on the administration's
flawed security strategy, recent events demonstrate that Bush's
economic agenda has been similarly disastrous for America's role
in the world. The administration's tax cutting for the wealthy
combined with big spending has left us with dangerous levels
of debt and the highest level of inequality since the 1920s.
And the administration's failure to impose even basic regulations
on the subprime industry has encouraged (although not caused)
turmoil on Wall Street.
...He is, however, in favor of school
choice for kids in Mexico: They have the choice of going to school
there or here. Huckabee promoted giving in-state tuition in Arkansas
to illegal immigrants from Mexico -- but not to U.S. citizens
from Ohio. "I don't believe you punish the children,"
he said, "for the crime and sins of the parents."

Dakota) Daily News Editorial
again, lawmakers ignoring voters' wishes on immigration
One of the ways Congress found to trim
spending in response to a demand by President Bush was to slash
funding for the proposed fence at certain locations along the
U.S.-Mexican border. Instead of the two-tier fencing called for
in a 2006 law, the barrier apparently will consist of only one
layer of protection.
