These people do not fuck around.

Sure, but how you...uh...execute that lesson is another thing, guys.

And kudos to whomever can pick up on my take on a movie line. What movie did I quote?

Damn. Imagine if we executed heads of agencies that fuck up in the US. Political cronies like Mike Brown, former head of FEMA, wouldn't even want the job let alone live to talk about his screw-ups.

We'd be executing people left and right for corruption and screw ups these days.

-Every person who gave Haliburton a contract
-Whoever approved Vioxx at the FDA (a previous administration)
-Donald Rumsfeld for screwing up the post invasion plans for Iraq

At least China is fair in there complete disregard for human life. IIRC, they execute more people than everyone else combined.

I don't know about Reagan, but every president since him has given contracts to Halliburton.

More consistent than fair.

I'll give you 'consistant', but maybe a little too consistant. Although I guess it would take the pressure off the judges in China. Hell, when the punishment for everything is death, it clears up that little 'truth in sentencing' problem.

I'm all in favor of punishment for corruption. However, as a government employee who screws up often, I get a little nervous when stories like this come out.

(...and I believe it was Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade)

B mac got it. It was from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

And in the words of the 800-year-old-knight-guy...

Mr. Xiaoyu chose poorly.

I am OK with consistancy and bipartisanship in this reguard.
