Paper Bags

We’ve seen plenty of the Bush regime vision of cheap labor for the factories and cannon fodder for the battlefield. Of course this is a conservative and capitalist vision, and not unique to the Dubya program, but it seems especially pronounced now. The glorification of Wal-Mart type businesses and the shabby treatment of soldiers are good indications. The hoi polloi are mere expendables, like printer ink cartridges or paper bags. When they run out of ink or get a hole, they are discarded without a second thought.

Now a new film reveals the shameful treatment of those who helped with the 9/11 rescue effort. See it here.
