The country is going to the hogs.

With the re-election of George W. Bush, the greedy business executives who looted their companies and the country have received a carte blanche. They are free to continue to pay wages below a living wage. They are free to offer jobs without health benefits though the benefits they receive are very nice, thank you. They can continue their drive to reduce regulations that are the protection of the public. They will be accountable to no one.

I lament for the nation.
