Good News from Baghdad!
    #2539123 - 04/08/04 02:30 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Whoever said we're not making progress in Iraq?

Take a look here:

http://www.cpa.gov/pressreleases/index.html

This is the site of the press office of the Coalition Provisional Authority. Some of the recent good news:

Apr 7: Boxing Merchandise Sold to Support Iraqi Boxing Dream
Apr 1: Optimists Club Organizes Baghdad Chapter
Mar 27: Beautification Plan for Baghdad Ready to Begin

From what I hear, the beautification plans are proceeding nicely: Baghdad now has many more bombed out buildings and dismembered corpses lying around than it did on March 27. Beautification experts are busy at work rearranging the body parts into the most aesthetically pleasing configurations.

And here's an interesting bit of trivia: the budget for the Beautifcation Plan is US$ 10,000,000! Yes, that's right! Your money and mine! Meanwhile, the Kean 9/11 commission had to beg and scrape for the Bushies to give them a WHOPPING $15,000,000. The commission charged with investigating the worst security failure in US history gets a full 50% more than a program designed to beautify a war zone.

Oh, did I mention that the press office of the CPA is staffed by highly qualified Republican Party hacks? But you knew that already.

:shake:  The priorities of this administration are EXTREMELY messed up.


--------------------
To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.
