Why Is the Only "Good" Govt Agency the Dept of War?

Shrub is on teevee telling us that in times of emergency, we must cede authority to the federal government, especially the military since they are the only ones who can get stuff done on a moment's notice.

There's something fucked up about a country where the only people capable of working quickly and efficiently are the people whose primary job is to kill other people.

Reconstructing a region of the country should not be done by religious groups or private, religious charities (like Habitat for Humanity). If we are to truly create a just, democratic society, we must create a government capable of building affordable housing, providing healthcare services, and giving free education and childcare. It will take the entire country to rebuild the Gulf Region; not "entrepeneurs," churches, and the Red Cross.

Otherwise, we should just leave it to Halliburton and Bechtel...they've already gotten no-bid contracts for work in the region.
