the UN’s corporate welfare office

This may be another fine reason for the US to get the hell out of the UN: Why is Iraq giving $190,000 to Toys R Us? Or $321,000 to Colonel Sanders? Disgusting, if it’s true. A number of American companies come off looking pretty awful in the article, and it sounds like they deserve it […]

Bunker states that: This might be the major Democratic effort to unseat Bush in November. I was fascinated by where this whole development could […]
