Mysteries of Texas bush-romney.gif
The Financial Times sheds some light on one of the 2008 Presidential campain’s oddities: how George H.W. Bush came to host Mitt Romney for his Mormon 2.0 speech at the Bush Library. The FT discussed how the many candidates have related to not-for-profits in the past as clues to their prospective administrations.

“Of concern with Mitt Romney and Giuliani is their assessment about the judgment of people they associate with in the non-profit sector. As a board member of the Points of Life Foundation, Romney was involved in the organisation’s merger with the Hands On Network, which chose Neil Bush, the president’s brother, as vice-chair and chair-elect. Bush does not convey an image of the highest standards of non-profit probity thanks to a history of dubious business and non-profit endeavours. These include the Silverado Savings and Loan collapse (costing American taxpayers $1.3bn) and having his mother, Barbara, pitch for charitable donations that would be designated to help school systems buy his learning software.”

They are letting Neil off easy. His Asian whore mongering while in the service of dubious businessmen is legend.

Ignite!’s stuff is comically bad.

Reaching today’s teens through the universal language of Rap, a bored singer intones Machines and Profit in World Cultures, Europe in Transition, Topic 4: Industrial Revolution:

“with government out of the way, industrialists ruled the day…and got the pay”

And yes, they are on the YouthTube.
