It's an op-ed piece by Frank Rich, replete with interesting links and a straight-on look at what we have allowed to happen in our nation. The reconstruction of Iraq cost $117 billion that went....where? Into Cheney's pocket? A few others must have gotten rich too. I was a stockholder in Haliburton for a while, and kick myself sometimes for getting out. It just seemed so immoral to keep making money off the taxpayers. Madoff only made off with $50 billion, and it was investor money, not taxpayer money.

The New York Times article will be dismissed by all those people yelling about the evil liberal press.

For me, the fact that we have lived through 8 years of a group that blatantly ripped the Constitution every time they could and sought ways to profit by whatever war they could start, just shows you how resilient humans can be. Whatever happens with the Obama presidency, NOTHING can compare to the 8 years of the devil lose in the land.
