Trust on Demand

Yesterday Chertoff said that there was a super secret plan that should assure us that giving an Arab company the okay to takeover operations at six major American ports was a swell idea. He wouldn’t discuss the details of this super secret plan because guess what? The details are classified. I guess the Arab company knows the details, but we can’t.

What’s the next plan? Shall we put Andrea Yates in charge of Child Safety?

Is this the same kind of super secret plan that brought us the claim of WMD in Iraq and a connection between 9-11 and Saddam? Is it the same sort of plan that left New Orleans in hell for all this time? The list goes on and on of what we have been told and what turned out to be wrong. So now we should just trust them again? NO! Trust must be earned, it is not served up on demand, especially when we have nothing to use for ingredients.

I read or heard somewhere that one of the individuals that 'signed off' on the security review of the purchase has taken a job from the UAE Company that will be allowed to operate the six ports. That is a major conflict of interest, or more precisely a conflict of our security interests.

When people in this administration are given the choice of doing what is right or what will satisfy their greed, greed wins every time.

What, are you telling me that you don't feel safer with this administration selling our ports to those who could have connections with the hijackers? But, but . . . these republicans can keep us safer than those inept democrats who hate murka. If this goes through, . . . well what the hell does anyone do any more??? I constantly email my senators and reps, but they are all republicans, so, they just follow the rest of the neocons. FRUSTRATING!!!!!!

When I first read this, I was stunned into silence. It is so blatantly crazy. I really believe most everyone in this administration is certifiably looney.

The administration said today that this is a done deal and no going back.

How's that working for you?

I think the "super-secret-plan" is kinda like a blank check in that they can fill it out however they want whenever they want.

But yeah, they are either the slyest (with super-secret-plans for this country) or incompetent bastards in history.

I bet this becomes an undone deal, just like no drinking became 1 beer at lunch.

I can't believe any orf you actually believe that the ADMINISTRATION THAT PROTECTS US FROM THE HELLDOGS OF THE MIDDLE EAST (remember, there haven't been any attackes since 9/11) would allow a middle eastern firm to manage our ports. Come on, that's to ridiculous to believe. This has just got to be a case of the press getting it wrong and Chernoff thinking that the question was about one of the no bid N'awlins reconstruction/demolition contracts awarded to a friend of HEWHOMUSTNOTBENAMED.

Incredible, isn't it? Every day brings something even more bizarre. Hard to keep up, isn't it?
