We Americans are the ultimate innocents. We are forever desperate to believe that this time
the government is telling us the truth. --Sydney Schanberg
The first stage of fascism should more appropriately be called 'corporatism.' --Benito Mussolini
No one can now doubt the word of America --George W. Bush, State of the Union, January 20, 2004.
People that are really very weird can get into sensitive positions and have a tremendous impact on history. --George W Bush
I don't care what the international lawyers say, we are going to kick some ass --President George W. Bush, September 11, 2001 (quoted by Richard A. Clarke, Against All Enemies)
Under the Bush plan, when you retire you are mandated by law to use your private account funds to purchase an annuity substantial enough to keep you above the poverty line for the rest of your life. (I guess that whole letting people decide what to do with their own money bit only goes so far.) You’d have to figure that for most retirees that would run through pretty much the whole stash or at least the lion’s share of it. And when you die, that’s it. By definition, you can’t pass on this kind of annuity.
