ICE to see you, Callifornyah!!!

Mr. Freeze fucks up California. Republican governor Arnold Schwartzeneggar replaced Democratic governor Gray Davis after the fake California energy crisis staged by Enron with Schwartzeneggar's participation. Illinois Democratic governor Blagojevich is covered 24x7 by the GOP-controlled corporate media (NOT "liberal" like you think). But Mr. Freeze? Driving California into the ground? That's "OK". If you're a Republican governor, nothing is that bad! Why don't Californians have a "recall" like they did with Gray Davis? They must love their state going broke! Where's the Batman when you need him? Maybe Mr. Freeze can find some use putting out the California fires with his freeze gun.

"You're either with us...or with the troops" - Dick Cheney's company Halliburton/KBR

A third U.S. service member has been determined to have been electrocuted in a shower in Iraq, and Navy criminal investigators are investigating, The Associated Press has learned.

Navy Petty Officer 3rd Class David A. Cedergren, 25, of South St. Paul, Minn., died Sept. 11, 2004, while showering. His family was told he died of natural causes.

Late last year, the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology changed the manner of Cedergren’s death to “accidental,” caused by electrocution and inflammation of the heart. The Naval Criminal Investigative Services has reopened an investigation into his death, Ed Buice, a NCIS spokesman, said Monday.

Cedergren’s death is among 18 electrocution deaths under review as part of a Department of Defense Inspector General inquiry. The inquiry primarily involves electrical work done at a facility where a Fort Campbell, Ky.-based Green Beret, Staff Sgt. Ryan Maseth, 24, of Pittsburgh, was electrocuted while showering in January 2008.

Sixteen of those who died were U.S. service members. Two were military contractors. Improperly installed or maintained electrical devices have been blamed in some of the deaths, while accidental contact with power lines has also been a cause in the electrocution deaths.
