HUNGER AND HOMELESSNESS INCREASING IN THE UNITED STATES WHILE THE BUSH GOP HAVE $50 COOL MIL TO BURN ON A PERSONAL ATTACK, FEAR AND SMEAR MACHINE.
God help anyone who dares to disagree with Bush. Off with your head! Burn at the stake! Hang' em first, try 'em later. LS
As hunger and homelessness rise in the United States, the Bush administration plans to get rid of a data source that supports this embarrassing reality, a survey that's been used to improve state and federal programs for retired and low-income Americans.
In 2003, the Bush Administration tried to whack the Bureau of Labor Statistics report on mass layoffs and in 2004 and 2005 attempted to drop the bureau's questions on the hiring and firing of women from its employment data.

HALLIBURTON CHARGED WITH SELLING NUCLEAR TECHNOLOGY TO IRAN
Cheney rails against terrorism while he raids the piggy bank.
Halliburton, the notorious U.S. energy company, sold key nuclear-reactor components to a private Iranian oil company called Oriental Oil Kish as recently as 2005, using offshore subsidiaries to circumvent U.S. sanctions. The story is particularly juicy because Vice President Dick Cheney, who now claims to want to stop Iran from getting nukes, was president of Halliburton in the mid-1990s, at which time he may have advocated business dealings with Iran, in violation of U.S. law.

FASCISM AT ITS VERY FINEST: FEDERAL WHISTLEBLOWER PROTECTION IN JEOPARDY
Though record numbers of federal workers have been sounding the alarm on waste, fraud, and other financial abuse since George W. Bush became president, the agency charged with defending government whistleblowers has reportedly been throwing out hundreds of cases - and advancing almost none. Statistics released at the end of 2005 by Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility led to claims that special counsel Scott Bloch, who was appointed by Bush in 2004, is overseeing the systematic elimination of whistleblower rights.
