Bush Family Fortunes" follows the award-winning reporter-sleuth Greg Palast on the trail of the Bush family, from Florida election flinging, to the Saudi connection, to the Bush team's spiking the FBI investigation of the bin Laden family and the secret State Department plans for postwar Iraq.
In Bush Family Fortunes: The Best Democracy Money Can Buy, journalist Greg Palast argues persuasively that George W. Bush was allowed into the Air National Guard ahead of other applicants due to his political connections; paints a damning portrait of how over 90,000 Florida voters, predominantly black, were prevented from voting in the 2000 election; discusses the number of government contracts handed out to large corporate donors to Bush's campaign--and that's just the first half-hour. Palast doesn't have the cinematic savvy of Michael Moore, but Bush Family Fortunes acts as a valuable corollary to Fahrenheit 9/11, exploring certain facets of the same argument--specifically, that the Bush family is detrimentally tied to both the Saudi Arabian ruling elite and the American oil industry, with whom they trade influence and money for mutual benefit. Palast's investigations will stir the blood of any Democrat and may raise doubts in some Republicans. -- Bret Fetzer

What should be most apparent is the absolute evil of the 2000 election and the eight years these Pirates were in Public Office!
Way too few of them went to jail. Quite a few of them should be tried in The Hague for war crimes. There is no justice and no rule of law. That's a fantasy.
The income gap between the many and the few grew by breath taking leaps while they were in power. How many banks were robbed? WAMU, Fifth Third, Lehman and many more. How much taxpayer money squandered? The US dollar destroyed.
How many of your rights and civil liberties went away? How much damage did they do to the USA? How much of the debt can be blamed on these people? How many dead people? The epitome of crime and piracy...
It's hard to cram so much of what they did into an hour. This is as good as any place to start. There are more DVDs you can get for more. The Frontline series has some that will tell you more. There are many books about it. Get them and study them well. You have a dim future.
So much for the idea of government in the USA. As long as this kind of people are in charge most of you can forget about ever having anything.
Educate yourself.... this family has been raping , murdering and pilaging the populace for a very long time.
