http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/politics/2009021903_bushlife11.html The forgettable yet unforgotten President Bush (remember him?) has resurfaced to announce his memoir plans. At the library, instead of a traditional chronological format, he plans to present his presidency through 20 consequential decisions he made… And instead of a full biography, his book will focus on a dozen key moments in his life, […]

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20081219/ap_on_bi_ge/meltdown_autos_169 The Bush administration is looking at “orderly” bankruptcy as a possible way to deal with the desperately ailing U.S. auto industry, Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson said Thursday as carmakers readied more plant closings and a half million new jobless claims underscored the deteriorating national economy. Has this headline reminded anyone else of Robert Klein’s […]

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080130/ap_on_re_ca/canada_medical_test_shortage_1 The Canadian “Tory” government is behaving in a short-sighted, rather Republican manner with regards to a nuclear situation from December. A nuclear watchdog agency realised the plant safety feature had been disabled, and ordered a shut down. The government went all Han Solo, PR-wise, and legislated it back to operation, citing a dearth of […]

Another Grim Week in Iraq – New York Times

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/03/10/opinion/10sat1.html Fox News fans, take note. There are a lot of big words in this editorial, but bear with me – this is what we call “shades of gray”.

Record $622 Billion Budget Requested for the Pentagon – New York Times

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/02/03/washington/03spend.html The Bush administration is seeking a record military budget of $622 billion for the 2008 fiscal year, Pentagon officials have said. The sum includes more than $140 billion for war-related costs. Stomach-turning numbers from the Pentagon. I’m getting heartily sick of seeing numbers in the billions being thrown away on wars and more military […]
