Thank God We Kicked Him Out

More nonsense from former Senator Santorum…

Ricky thinks that President Obama should have taken First Lady Michelle Obama out for a shot and a beer instead of going to a Broadway Show.  In other words, don’t support the arts.

I wonder if former First Lady Laura Bush would have appreciated being courted so eloquently by her husband former President George W. Bush.

Banned Bush Interview

This was an interview done in Ireland and was not seen in the United States.

It’s a good feeling to no longer fear our government and to be able to speak freely once again.

Commentary- The Torture Issue… Is It Worth It?

So I’m torn… What is more imporatant, right and wrong… or health care reform???  Going after the war crimes of the past administration or fixing our economy???

These are some really tough issues to debate… Let me be clear…Torture is what happened and it was wrong and illiegal.  But we have an opportunity to do something about these huge issues… If we are baited into going after the crimes of the past I fear that the Republicans will use this is a rallying cry… and Cheney running around on TV, I think he is daring us… Remember Republicans are jerks and  misguided but they are not stupid… they like power and will do anything to get back into power… and this is their one chance to get it.  If they make us go through this, if they get us off track.  We may miss our chances… And they can vilify us for getting nothing done, openening the door for their return to power.  Just something to think about.

Include My Tea Bag

Yes, I, too, am angry about our current tax rates and I want to throw my tea bag in the barrel. Enough of the current tax breaks for the rich that George W. Bush and the Republican Party put into place. No more tax breaks to companies for sending American jobs overseas.

On Wednesday, April 15, 2009, I want my tea bag to be included in this protest against the current tax rates that George W. Bush and the Republican Party put into place. No more tax breaks for the rich. It’s time for us to embrace President Barack Obama’s tax plan which will bring tax relief to 95% of Americans.

By the way, does anyone really want to get rid of America’s leading Socialist program, Social Security?

The New Hoovervilles

These new homes are brought to you by the policies of the Republican Party. We now have Bushvilles popping up all across our nation.

We are going to need to take back our communities. To hell with the Wall Street fat cats.

Rush Limbaugh, the fat, rich, drug addict, said that he isn’t hurting. The people living in Bushvilles are hurting.

Republicans Cannot Play Fair

Thom Hartmann discussed the Johnson tapes where President Johnson discusses the treason committed by Richard Nixon.  Reagan, Bush, Cheney, and Rove have modeled their presidencies after President Richard Nixon who may have been the most the president with the most despicable character, ever.   Bush still remains the worst.

Why does it take the Internet to present the truth?  WTF is wrong with our media?

The 2008 Bush Depression

Things are getting really rough out there.   Retail sales are way down and everyone I speak with is concerned about keeping their job.  Donations to charities have fallen.  Even the recycling business is having a tough go of it.   Our economy is slowly coming to a halt.  The Republicans under the leadership of George W. Bush have given tax breaks to US companies to send our jobs overseas and the Democrats in Congress under the leadership of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi have remained silent.  Can you believe this?  Tax breaks for taking jobs away from the American worker. In the meantime, CEO’s keep receiving “cash rewards” while the workers lose their jobs.  We don’t manufacture much in the US anymore so we have little to export.  We just provide “service” and that “service” has moved to other countries with the blessings of both political parties.

The Republicans actually had the audacity to attack Union workers while at the same time stuffing money into the pockets of Wall Street CEOs.  Remember the “crisis” in September where Congress had to approve a $700 billion bailout and the Bush administration didn’t want any oversight?  Well, there still isn’t any “real” oversight and our tax dollars keep flying out of the US Treasury.  The Chinese are now recruiting for the banking industry and this can only mean that the Chinese want to take over our banking system.  The Bush administration has sold US out and the media is worried about 21 conversations that DIDN’T happen between Blagojevich and Obama’s transition team.  No one wants to assume responsibility for our current crisis and the media remains silent.

A sign that the times are tough is when no one applies for a rental property.  We own a few rentals and usually when one becomes vacant, we get a long list of interested people.  Right now, we have an empty apartment and very, very few applicants.  Without a job, no one will apply for a rental and we can’t afford to rent to someone without an income.

Bush doesn’t give a rat’s ass about any of us.  His only concern is his new portrait and making sure that he can pass the blame for his failures onto someone else.   He is set for life and if things go crazy, he can always move to Paraguay.   In the meantime, American workers must scrounge for “cake”.

This is the real Bush legacy, the Depression of 2008.  Times are tough.  Hey, brother can you spare a dime?

Bush and The Detainees

According to a bipartisan Senate Armed Service Committee report, Bush approved of the torture of the detainees at Guantanamo and stated that the Geneva Conventions did not apply to Bush’s war with Al Qaeda.

The executive summary also traces the erosion of detainee treatment standards to a Feb,. 7, 2002, memorandum signed by President George W. Bush stating that the Geneva Convention did not apply to the U.S. war with al Qaeda and that Taliban detainees were not entitled to prisoner of war status or legal protections.

“The president’s order closed off application of Common Article 3 of the Geneva Conventions, which would have afforded minimum standards for humane treatment,” the summary said.

Members of Bush’s Cabinet and other senior officials participated in meetings inside the White House in 2002 and 2003 where specific interrogation techniques were discussed, according to the report.

As result of the policies of Bush, Rumsfeld and some other top Bush members, numerous detainee murders occurred.  According to autopsy results, some detainees died as a result of trauma.

It is probably inevitable that some prisoners who reportedly die of “natural causes” in truth died of homicide. However, the nature of Armed Forces’ medical investigations made this kind of error more likely. The AFME reported homicide as the cause of death in 10 of the 23 death certificates released in May 2004. The death of Mohamed Taiq Zaid was initially attributed to “heat”; it is currently and belatedly being investigated as a possible homicide due to abusive exposure to the hot Iraqi climate and deprivation of water.

Eight prisoners suffered “natural” deaths from heart attacks or atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. Threats, beatings, fear, police interrogation, and arrests are known to cause “homicide by heart attack” or life-threatening heart failure. People with preexisting heart disease, dehydration, hyperthermia, or exhaustion are especially susceptible.[11–15] No forensic investigation of lethal “heart attacks” explores the possibility that these men died of stress-induced heart attacks. There are a number of reports of “heart attack” following harsh procedures in rounding up noncombatants in Iraq and Afghanistan.

A typically sketchy US Army report says, “Detainee Death during weekend combat …. Army led raid this past weekend of a house in Iraq … an Iraqi who was detained and zip-locked (flexi-cuffed with plastic bands tying his wrists together) died while in custody. Preliminary information is that the detainee died from an apparent heart attack.[16]” Sher Mohammad Khan was picked up in Afghanistan in September 2004. Shortly thereafter, his bruised body was given to his family. Military officials told journalists that he had died of a heart attack within hours of being taken into custody. No investigation, autopsy, or death certificate is available.[17]

Instead of exposing the Bush administration for their criminal behavior, the media is consumed with the Blagojevich story.  It’s true that Blagojevich has done unethical and illegal activities.  No one died because of Blagojevich’s poor judgement.  Many Iraqis, Afgans and 4000+ Americans have lost their lives because of Bush’s illegal behavior and poor judgement.   The difference in the stories is sensationalism.  Our media is so focused on sensational stories that other more important news gets passed by.
