W to attack yet another country?

It seems that the decider-in-chief, George W. Bush, is preparing the way for an attack on yet another country that does not have the capability or desire to attack the United States. Interesting article that states that Congress approved money for covert operations in Iran. All according to the Constitution, right?

Government fails child

Here's yet another example of why the government should not be in the protection of children business. This article from describes the horrible life this little boy led, and how different, inefficient arms of the government failed to protect him.

The private sector works more efficiently because it has an incentive: the profit motive. Let's get the low-paid inefficient bureaucrats who don't care out of the way so we can protect our children.

What'll it be, soldier, Zoloft or Prozac?

War is not good for anyone, especially the young men and women who are actively engaged in fighting it. Not only are U.S. armed forces personnel committing suicide at an alarming rate, they are, as reported on here, also taking antidepressants at an increasing rate.

Over 4,000 U.S. troops dead, $12 billion a month bill for Iraq and Afghanistan, hundreds of thousands of Iraqi men, women, and children dead, increased animosity toward the American empire, over 30 thousand permanently injured U.S. troops - need I go on?

The purpose of this unconstitutional war was what?
