    How Enron worked the President

    This is an interesting bit of information that you don't hear much about.

    A... Enron's chairman did meet with the president and the vice president in the Oval Office.

    B.. Enron gave $420,000 to the president's party over three years.

    C.. It donated $100,000 to the president's inauguration festivities.

    D.. The Enron chairman stayed at the White House 11 times.

    E.. The corporation had access to the administration at its highest level and even enlisted the Commerce and State Departments to grease deals for it.

    F.. The taxpayer-supported Export-Import Bank subsidized Enron for more than $600 million in just one transaction. Scandalous!!

    G.BUT the president under whom all this happened WASN'T George W. Bush.

    SURPRISE...It was Bill Clinton!

    Well cut and paste a deal, then.

    I don't think the Enron or Halliburton things are really big deals wrt one person, it is the system that is fucked, but that is my opinion.

    All I know is the accounting rules changes are a major pain in the ass. It is unbelievable the impact a few people in one accounting firm had on the entire industry.

    America is a PLUTOCRACY, both the Republicans and Democrats are to blame for this.

    We're not the French. Every problem doesn't require overthrowing the government. If it gets bad enough, things will change. This is your queue to say, "Things are already bad enough." Well, they're not. It's only that bad in the minds of liberal extremists.

    Here in the real world, I pull a nice wage, I'm increasing my income year after year (far above inflation), I'm saving for my retirement, and the man isn't keeping me down. Life is good. As a matter of fact, life here is far better than pretty much anywhere else in the world.

    In the words of "Sean Connery": Suck it.
