The Family Tree Branch
On 2/21 in a comment on Don's post about the Dubai ports deal and whether we indeed have three branches of government, I opined:
"The three branches of government are the white house, the pentagon, and the innermost circle of family, appointees and near-family (financially tied)."
Two items I've seen today reaffirm the coziness and generosity found in that third branch:
The Battle Axe's Katrina donation goes to Neil; and
Uncle Bucky is a war profiteer.
Ain't that sweet? Now, what have you done for your family lately?
