Bush Screwing America On The Way Out

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.
