Tim Dickinson of Rolling Stone explains how Bush is delivering his 'Final Fuck You' to the American public:

In its final days, the administration is rushing to implement a


sweeping array of "midnight regulations" — de facto laws


issued by the executive branch — designed to lock in Bush's


legacy. Under the last- minute rules, which can be extremely


difficult to overturn, loaded firearms would be allowed in national


parks, uranium mining would be permitted near the Grand Canyon and


many injured consumers would no longer be able to sue negligent


manufacturers in state courts. Other rules would gut the Endangered


Species Act, open millions of acres of wild lands to mining,


restrict access to birth control and put local cops to work spying


for the federal government.
