HOMELAND SELLOUT


FIGHT THE PRIVATIZATION OF YOUR SECURITY


Email The US Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee


Hearings began today, 2 FEB 2005, on the nomination of Michael Chertoff as Secretary of Homeland Security. Then it will be the new Assistant Secretary's turn before the committee. Write Congress NOW to demand that they nip in the bud any plans to privatize our national security, and turn the "War On Terror" into a pork-barrel for big corporations connected to the Republicans. This could mean your own life, if not the American way of life...


BTW, the wolves are already circling: After three years of sitting on moneys already appropriated, Bushco is now expected to start outsourcing govt security services to private industry. Multinational megacorporations like General Electric (once listed as both a German AND an American company... during WWII.) are revving up their security service businesses, and getting ready to put in for some of the fattest Federal contracts in history.

Are you ready to be strip-searched by a guy from Manpower? (NO!) Think Osama is ready to cope with the lowest bidder on nuclear, chemical and biological security? (YES!) Oh, well. You voted for this, right? Remember in the Presidential debates, when Bush promised to outsource our national security? No? Me neither.


Don't blame the current civil servants trying to do their jobs, and failing: The fish rots from the head. Political appointees, infighting top career bureaucrats, and competing private contractors have made a complete hash of your homeland security. Now a contentious lawyer, and an industry shill will be taking over. Their agenda: Dismantling our government in the middle of a war, and selling it off cheap to private industry. First step: Outsource everything.


Look for minimum-wage temps, illegal aliens, and people working for $3 a day in the Third World to start losing your mail, misfiling your Social Security stuff, and trying desperately to land your plane from a control tower in Bangladesh, by phone. The new Homeland Security exemptions from Federal work-rules, contract guide-lines, and human decency, not to mention common sense,
are being extended to ALL government agencies. For Christ's sake (if you go in for that sort of thing), write your Senators and Congressperson, and tell them NO!

"Outsource everyBODY!" That's what the Jerky Boys should have said. But how could they have known?

This government is bending us over to be screwed in every orifice. Outsourcing, combined with war, strife and religious contention, will truly be the downfall of America.

Yeah.

I think the plan is, make America unlivable, and force the rich to move to China. That's how all that European money ended up in America, originally. It's about to move on. Good riddance. We can always make more. Let them leave now, and don't let them take our country down with them. We should lifting up the Third World, not dragging ourselves down into it.

This Homeland Security thing is really telling, though. If THAT doesn't mean anything but money to them, what does? Social Security? Child Welfare? National Health Care? None of the above?

There IS a difference between Parties. And we need to make the difference BIGGER, and better known.
