NEW YORK, Nov. 11 — George Soros, one of the world’s richest men, has given away nearly $5 billion to promote democracy in the former Soviet bloc, Africa and Asia. Now he has a new project: defeating President Bush . . .

Kinda reminds me of Ross Perot, who harbored a deep-seated aversion to Bush I and decided to do something about it by running for president on a third-party ticket in 1992.
At a moment when victory appeared within reach, Perot withdrew from the race, saying that threats had been made against his daughter's wedding party.
Let's hope that Mr. Soros doesn't fold so easily. He's taking on both the Carlyle cartel and also the Cali cartel, with his funding of a drug legalization campaign. (Of course, the Carlyle and Cali cartels may be one and the same for all we know, and the Bin Ladins were early investors too.)

I always wondered how he managed to reconcile his business practices with his philanthropic activities. He explained it amazingly well, much to my surprise, on Bill Moyers a couple of months ago.
He may be biting off more than he can chew by going to war with the drug cartels too. So I offer him this part of a poem. It's Remembrance Day, after all. And to all of those who fight with sword, gun, pen and keyboard, creeping fascism.
In Drug Launderer's Fields
Take up our quarrel with the foe
To you from failing hands, we throw the torch
Be your's to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep,
Though poppies grow
in Afghani fields.

Multi-millionaire, ex-NYSE chief "cueball" Grasso was also mixed up in the Cali drug cartel somehow. His exploits in South Amercia received little media attention. I took it as a tipoff he couldn't be trusted, and he couldn't, but that didn't stop him from making off with over $100 million.
Soros must either believe in his convictions and/or see that there will be a chance to knock out Bush II from the presidency. With new actions against Syria, plus maybe some surpises in Saudi Arbaia, the election year may be very interesting with a replay of the flag-waving, anti-terrorism, themes re-emerging from the White House.

The Bubble of American Supremacy
A prominent financier argues that the heedless assertion of American power in the world resembles a financial bubble—and the moment of truth may be here
BY GEORGE SOROS
. . . Exploiting an event to further an agenda is not in itself reprehensible. It is the task of the President to provide leadership, and it is only natural for politicians to exploit or manipulate events so as to promote their policies. The cause for concern lies in the policies that Bush is promoting, and in the way he is going about imposing them on the United States and the world. He is leading us in a very dangerous direction . . .
