    seems like every other day there's a bush adminstration or bush friend scandal that would have brought congress to a stop had it been clinton.

    i'm thinking how many times i've heard people wish for a federal gov't run like a business. guess we've got it.

    I am not feeling too intelligent today, so I will posit only the vaguest of queries:

    I seem to remember reading not too long ago of the opinion that in order for China to fufill WTO stipulations it would be required to privatize it's state-run banks (and possibly some industries), which in turn would create a collapse due to the incestous borrowing habits and currency manipulation that the Chinese banks currently engage in.

    In relation to the topic, does this make it quite possible that in the near-future UNOCAL may be had for below market value, if purchased by a Chinese venture which would then collapse? Who would benefit from this?

    I realize this dodges the political questions asked...another time...

    Yes, but there are good businesses and bad ones. Guess which one we got.
