What Bush and his gang have done reminds me of the old Protection Racket the Mafia used to run on Italian immigrants in New York. Yeah, the screwed their own too.
Guys would come to your store and ask for twenty bucks a month to provide you with "protection". You'd say "no thanks" cause you didn't need any protection, never had. That night someone would smash all your windows and chase your wife home from the store. Next day the guys would come back and ask if you still felt you didn't need protection. Just to convince you how genuine they were they'd help you sweep up the broken glass and put their hands on their hearts too. You'd pay.
