Paul O'Neill, like all patriotic consumers, believes that American corporations should pay no income taxes. For uttering into debate this truest of all statements, President Bush punished Secretary of the Treasury of the United States (a man who has a handle on the jerk in the Current Accounts Deficit (and yes, only an Economist crossed with a Physicist is going to get that crack, but hey, I have to live, too!)) by sending him on a month long trip to Africa with that Irish singer, Bongo Pop.
Now true Corporate American, champion of CEO pay, without whom many thousands wouldn't have jobs, and many millions goods to consume, Paul O'Neill, says Bush wanted a war all along.
Did I ever actually say that? I know I thought it. It was very painfully obvious.
