In these tough economic times we should all make use of every resource we have available, and accordingly it’s probably a good idea to revisit the idea of closing Guatanamo Bay. Sure, our little Carribean torture palace has been an insult to the very concept of what it means to be American, an international embarassment, and an afront to human dignity, but is that any reason to abandon a perfectly good prison! Perhaps we were just imprisoning and torturing the wrong people.
These economic times have revealed an entirely new kind of Weasel that is probably best sent on an extended tropical vacation. A few candidates…..
Stewart Parnell, President of The Peanut Corporation of America, ran the filthy food company that is now responsible for nine deaths and over 600 illnesses in one of the largest salmonella outbreaks in history. In true Weasel form, Parnell and his plant manager Sammy Lightsey pled the fifth, refusing to take responsibility for their incompetent management that continues to threaten our entire food supply. Since his plants were filled with roaches, rats, and mold, he would probably find Guantanamo downright luxurious by comparison! Of course sending an executive to Guantanamo might seem extreme, but consider the crime. If an Arab terrorist had poisoned our food supply, killing and injuring hundreds of people, what would we have done?
And why not make Bernie Madoff his bunk mate? Hmmm, wonder who would be the wife and who would be the husband? The 70 year old Madoff will go down in history as the perpetrator of one of the biggest Ponzi schemes in history, robbing hundreds of people of over 50 billion dollar, and further progressing the collapse of our financial market. If a terrorist had planted a bomb in the NY Stock exchange and cause the market to lose $50 billion dollars, what we we do to that terrorist?
The sad fact is that aside from 9/11, the worst damage that has been inflicted on America came not from terrorists, but from home-grown incompetent, dishonest, greedy Americans that have reeked havok on the country. Lets send them south!
