If you didn't see this...

Here's something from that is can't miss. This is a classic case of people embracing criticism that they shouldn't. "You say we're like the Roman Empire, you're right. We are! Look at our togas and chariots!" Unreal....

Just What Have "We" "Accomplished"?

I wish it had been Rumsfeld. One can only hope. But evidently this eagle has soared into early retirement. Good riddance to bad rubbish. But I wonder just what it is that John Ashcroft is so excited about. U.S. troops even now are engaged in the heaviest combat in months in Fallujah and somehow the objective of protecting Americans from crime and terror has been achieved. The situation in Iraq is far from being even remotely "achieved." Oh, he must me Americans are protected from "terror[ism]"- from the "real" terrorists not the diversional ones. People like Osama Bin Laden. That objective has been achiev—didn't we just see that guy on a video the other day. That's right, he is still free and guessed it "terrorist acts!"

But the U.S. has achieved the objectives, God bless 'em. Perhaps he is referring to his pet project the Patriot Act. Perhaps indeed. Well, if the objective was securing Americans by making them fearful to go outside and live their lives then I say: mission accomplished. Let me offer my heartfelt congratulations on a job well done. Terrorism is at an all time high, everyone except for Great Britain (for some reason) dislikes the U.S., and the man responsible for planes crashing into the towers is coming back for more. Nobody does it better than John Ashcroft.

This resignation does not offer any hope of change. The general counsel at PepsiCo is a rumored successor. So, big business continues its ruthless reign. Now that John Ashcroft has secured Americans from terror and crime he can resign and let the criminals replace him. The commodification of EVERYTHING marches on. Would you like your Ford Mustang in Pepsi blue or Coca-Cola red, sir?
