That's amazing that they're pushing their bureacracy in a time of economic rebuilding.

It's almost as ridiculous as the Triangle Shirtwaist factory in the 20's checking children for theft while trying to exit a burning textile building thereby jamming up the fire escape and causing even more fatalities.

Hmm, I know someone who is one of the Oxfam event organizers. I wonder what he has to say about the tarriffs...

It is bizarre -- pinheads with a little power and no grownups to slap their little hands when they get way outta line.

Makes me grateful for the relative integrity we have here in the U S of A.

just a reminder: you forgot to blame everything on the liberals in your post. i trust that this is an oversight and that it won't happen again. thank you for your consideration regarding this matter.
