Oh, those euphemisms
"Ease regualations." Doesn't that sound innocuous?
Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld has come to Congress to ask to ease regulations on the following:
Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld urged lawmakers Wednesday to ease regulations that he said are impeding the military's ability to adapt to new threats.
Among the changes sought by Rumsfeld are greater flexibility in managing the 700,000-employee civilian work force; more relaxed rules for shifting money from one defense program to another; more flexible retirement rules to help retain talented older workers; and elimination of some of the hundreds of reports required by Congress.
Impeding the military's ability to adapt to new threats. Hmmmmmm? Give's me pause for thought. Will the Republicans cave again just because they're told to by Rove. Will Democrats cave too.
