Love this headline from The Independent: First drugs, then terror: now U.S. in 'war with spinach'. It's a funny take in the current food crisis, but some people have seriously suggested that the bacteria were planted by terrorists and the government has had to spend resources debunking this myth. It also reminds us of the so-called drug war and today Congress is set to take up some of the craziest bills proposed yet in that war. Amongst the offerings? Warrentless searches, including strip searches of students. No evidence necessary! Also in the front of that war, the government has begun posting their worthless, $1.2 billion of anti-drug PSAs on YouTube. Commence the remixes, folks.
Bush is blocking the campaign to put pressure on Darfur. As manager of the U.S. efforts, Bush has nominated the man who, as the head of U.S. AID, promised that the rebuilding of Iraq would cost no more than $1.7 billion. We're at $20 billion and counting. He's also the guy who ran the crumbling 'Big Dig' project in Boston. How much did he give to the Republican Party?
