BUSH-CHENEY '04 SWEAT SHOP GEAR


Oops. Turns out Bush has been outsourcing campaign paraphanalia to a country with one of the worst human and labor rights records in the world.

Burma is so bad that Sen. John Kerry's home state of Massachusetts even enacted a law to ban official state business with the rogue nation.

Fleece pull-overs from Burma are just a drop in the bucket for the Bush-Cheney axis. While at the helm of Halliburton, now Vice President Dick Cheney made deals with Burma's military junta to build two oil pipelines:

From 1992 until the present, thousands of villagers in Burma have been forced to work on these pipelines and their related infrastructure, have lost their homes due to forced relocation, and have been raped, tortured, and killed by Burmese soldiers hired by the companies as security guards for the pipelines.

I guess the Bush administration is right. Outsourcing murder and mayhem is certainly more efficient than getting blood on your own hands.
