Come on Down to the Intelligence Blowout Sale!
My fellow Americans, Im angry. My blood started bubbling when I read that our government is still paying $340,000 per month to Iraqi National Congress leader Ahmed Chalabi. Chalabi, who calls himself a “hero in error” for spreading distortions that midwifed a war, is pulling down four million a year? Outrageous!
After all, the economys going through a rough spot. In this time of uncertainty and unemployment, we can ill afford more outsourcing. Yet, heres Uncle Sam taking good jobs in intelligence manipulation away from Americans and giving them to foreignersand its not like were paying sweatshop wages for the labor, either.
Moreover, if we aim to rule the world while running a first-class welfare state, then were gonna have to at least feign a little fiscal responsibility. Benevolent hegemony, national greatness, gourmet bread and well-regulated circuseswe want it all, and we want it fast. With the current pace of medical technology, however, the long run in which a great sage once said well all be dead now seems farther away than ever. You wanna get caught with a smirk on your face and a paw full of IOUs when the kids figure out that todays deficits are tomorrows slavery? I think not.
