On Thursday's edition of The Colbert Report, bestselling author Naomi Klein argued that the Bush Administration creates crises in order to "enrich themselves and their friends," drawing parallels between the torture of prisoners and the economic bailout being provided to Wall St. by US leaders.

Previously, Klein called out the sprawling economic crisis as just another example of the Bush 'shock doctrine,' a key component to the ruling regime's corporate agenda

The Rip-ublican party as a whole (I'm sure there a couple of exceptions) share in the greed mentality of the Busheney gang.

They gladly trade your son's life for a few bucks and a few gallons of oil. Remember Iraq - Sadam signed oil contracts with countries and oil companies (to begin pumping as soon as UN sanctions were lifted) "OTHER" than Busheney gangs interests so we invaded them under false pretense to prevent it.

[By the way - mcBush's standy behind the Iraq "war" (ya, what a joke, mcLame's war - the mighty America against a few thousand "insurgents" - 100 years?) isn't about terrorism or terrorists - it's about protecting private (oil) industries, construction and service companies [Chevron, Bechtel, Halliburton, etc.) PROFITS]

To fool fools in Congress - namely their own idiot ranks (remember the Rip's voted as one mind for so long because that was the sum total value of their collective brain power - and by the wa, I've thrown in Elizabeth Hazzelquack to boot) - Halliburton and friends Wolfowitz concocted the whole BS plan to keep America the dominate world power for the next 100 years - to "market" it to ignorant politicians. We weren't told much about it because - "you idiots" didn't need to know. Well, guess WHAT?

You been duped! Taken for a ride! Bent over and exploited! You've been had! Daddy pulled your leg!

Who has it helped? Let's see: Hmm - who's wealth has only INCREASED under the Busheney gangs molestation of our country? - and who's wealth has only DECREASED?

Too tough a question for you Rips? How many homes can you protect if you go into bankruptcy? And how many homes can the VERY VERY wealthy protect if they should go into bankruptcy?

Still too hard for you Rips? Just vote for OBAMA / BIDEN and you can sleep with a better conscious.

I loved this comment from that episode:

They spent seven years transferring public money into private hands; their final act is taking private debt and transferring it into public hands.
