  But What Do The People Want? What in the world is going on here? Bush threatening veto. Bill Frist taking the opposite side of the president and Congressmen and Senators going nuts. Jimmy Carter taking Bush's side? We're talking about six ports being run by the United Arab Emirates. Even Hugh Hewett, who usually makes my head really hurt and makes my dogs howl, is sounding off about this, against the president? Jack Cafferty weighs in with this during today's Situation Room: Wolf, this may be the straw that finally breaks the camel's back, this deal to sell control of six US ports to a company controlled by the United Arab Emirattes. There are now actually Senators and Congressmen and Governors and Mayors telling the White House "you're not gonna do this." And it's about time. No one has said "no" to this administration on anything that matters in a very long time. Well this matters. It matters a lot. If this deal is allowed to go through, we deserve whatever we get. A country with ties to terrorists will have a presence at six critical doorways to our country. And if anyone thinks that the terrorists, in time, won't figure out how to exploit that, then we're all done. Nothing's happened yet, mind you, but if our elected representatives don't do everything in their power to stop this thing, each of us should vow to work tirelessly to see that they are removed from public office. We're at a crossroads - which way will we choose?Here's the question: What should be done to stop a deal that would allow an Arab company to run US Ports?? A couple of key questions I have is why would we give another country with terrorists ties this job, and why are we giving another country this job in the first place? My big question is what is really going on? I mean, really going on. There is a story here, but what is it? Why would our president just four years after 9/11 agree to this, and be willing to fight members of his own party over it. The real story, in my opinion, has not been revealed.  
who's cashing in?
That's the big question.
Ponder,ponder, mull, mull
This may be the tipping point. The operation is currently owned by a British company, right? That's bad enough, and how did that happen? Let's recount: the Brits killed our people in the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812. We saved their butts maybe in WWI and more certainly in WWII. They helped drag us into Gulf War I.

This is going to stimulate some interesting debate. I don't see ownership restrictions in security-critical US-based industries as traditional protectionism; but, until we stop meddling in the MIddle East and other places, higher standards of border control make more sense. This whole affair highlights the internationalization of huge and powerful corporations and the Bush clicque's ties with same.

I was working on a post on non-interventionism when this post came up in my reader. This story is great food for thought. Stay on it.
Makes you forget all about that NSA wire tap America plan, and the thing before that and on and on and until you get back to DiBold and Al Gore. A slow motion train wreck until Bush becomes America's first dictator.
No wonder there is nothing in my pockets. Almost three more years of this is just too much of our administartion to ask of us. They are really breakin' my balls with all of their philanthropy causes for terrorist aid.
I treally makes me want to puke.
OK, the Non-interventionism post is done.
