America Has Been Gracious To Its Neocons

Standard

The neocons asked America to give up much of its tax income. And America did not wince at giving up it tax base and even extending tax-cuts that were programmed to end during the neocons’ great recession.

The neocons asked America to give up its treasury. And America gave  its treasury up – to a great recession along with a $3tn price tag for a war against Iraq.

The neocons asked America to give up the lives of 6,000 of its American soldiers. And America gave up the lives of 6,000 American soldiers in order to gain control of the world’s second largest oil reserves.

The neocons asked America to give up its privacy but only after they got caught stealing same. And while this may be where the graciousness ends, at least one news source has focused on the privacy invading tools rather than the combination of privacy invading tools and privacy invading people. And yes, electrons are not inherently evil: but human beings are.

America’s 80’s ombudsmen(voters) have presided over a wider expanse of injury(and it looks willful) to America than did its 30’s brethren.
