Current Mood: confusedconfused
I am finding it difficult to believe what I am hearing on the news!

It seems very strange. On the one hand our government goes to war against a country that had nothing to do with 9-11 & run by a man who hated bin Laden (yes, yes, Hussein is a Bad Man who treated his people incredibly badly; the fact remains he had nothing to do with 9-11). But on the other, want to give the glad hand to the idea of a company owned by the government of the U.A.E. government (a known supporter of terrorists behind 9-11) to run several of our major ports! Talk about setting the fox to watch the hen house...

Big money is being exchanged behind the scenes somewhere or Bush is listening once again to bad advice. Actually, I'd bet both are true.

Bigotry and racism have nothing to do with my opinion. I'd say the same of any country that had attacked us.

Truthfully, I'm not thrilled with any non-American company being charge of such an important part of our infrastructure. And this is not just any company is it?

I don't know...doesn't it seem like our country is slowly being dismantled in the name of profit? The neocons seems to believe that, as long as big business makes a big profit it is absolutley OK to destroy our environment, outsource any jobs outside of fast food and other minimum wage areas, and now hand over important infrastructures to foreign nationals (and ones that support terrorists, to boot)...

I heard about this on NPR today. I think don't think that any of our infrastructure should be run by foreign companies. Get advice from them, yes. But don't give them free reign.

I really do hope that this changeover doesn't happen until May. I want to enjoy my Hawaii vacation.
