WMD week

This week is my blog's WMD week. More accurately, it is politicians-said-there-are-WMDs-but-in-reality-there-are-none week.

President Bush said there were WMDs in Iraq, but nobody was able to find them.

President Bush, Presidential-candidate Obama, and several other Democratic party Senators, said on October 1 that an economic collapse was imminent unless the U.S. Treasury took $700 billion of our tax dollars and gave it to U.S. banks. The Bush administration and Congressional Democrats appealed to the same fears to rationalize giving several billion to the auto industry.

This week I will scour the economic data for October and November and try desperately to find those economic-WMDs. You will see that I won't even find a squirt gun!
