News and Comment

The Wheels have come completely off of the current band of thugs running this country (charitably known by some as the Bush Administration).

In Recent News:

First, all of the President's men swear up and down that they had nothing to do with exposing CIA officer Valerie Plame... then Lewis "Scooter" Libby is indicted and convicted for having lied to the FBI in it's investigation.

Next, The Attorney General, Alberto Gonzales, swears up and down that the Justice Department didn't base it's termination of a U.S. Attorneys on political grounds... then internal email shows that this is exactly what happened. This really shouldn't be surprising though... if you remember, Mr. Gonzales is the same guy that trashed the U.S. Constitution in this country with The so-called "Patriot" Act, and the same guy that gave Bush the green light to torture prisoners of war "Hey, if we call them "detainees", instead of POWs the Geneva Conventions don't count!" Many Republican lawmakers are now quietly calling for Gonzales to resign.

Now, Lurita Doan, The Administrator of the General Services Administration (GSA) is accused of steering "no-bid" contracts to a local crony, and is being investigated for using GSA facilities, time, and employees to make campaign plans for Republican candidates.

In war news, the administration is now coming under fire from within it's own party. Senator Chuck Hagel, Republican of Nebraska, has actually used the word impeachment. Mr Hagel recently commented on ABC's "This Week", that "Any President who says... "I will not respond to what the people of this country are saying about Iraq or anything else" or "I don't care what the Congress does, I am going to proceed".... there are ways to deal with that"

Bush's Secretary of State, Condoleeza Rice (an accomplished Soviet Specialist... um... what Soviets?) continues to make a mess of our middle-east policies, particularly concerning the increasingly alarming situation in Egypt.

Even Robert Novak, a more than slightly partisan editorialist, has declared that in his fifty years of experience, he has never seen a President so "alone" and isolated.

The 2008 elections are nearly two years away, The President's own party (except for those who REALLY like purple Kool-Aid) wants nothing to do with him.

What a mess.

It's posts like this that make me so glad to be a Canadian.

Our politicians suck ass too, but the fate of the free world doesn't rest on our shoulders.

You things are bad if we start agreeing with Novak on anything.

On a lighter note, groovy music on the home page!

Today on NPR (National Public Radio), there was a long story about the fact that Canuck security types are instituting American-style "No-Fly" lists. The story talked about how P.O.'d many Canadians are about this. The story also discussed the loss of confidence by the public, for the RCMP, because of certain torture-related deportations to Syria.


No kidding... most days, I'd like to punch Novak right in the face.

Glad you like the tune! It is one of my true favorites.

Too bad we won't get Monica Goodling's account of the political soap opera.

Terri said...

I don't trust any of our politicians in Washington ...

not one of them...

they are all "in it for themselves" ... I feel they only care about getting re elected...
not what's good for our country...
makes me sick...

well.... maybe John Ensign, I do like him ... but I
can't stand Harry Reid.....
or Nancy Pelosi.....

I'm sick of the waste of time and the bickering.

Maybe if these folks ever had to face the challenges I've had to face w/ my baby's health and re: running out of health insurance for our baby... they'd have a different perspective on life.

I wish we could get rid of them all and start over.

Hi Terri,

I agree... we can start with George W. Bush and his gang of bandits.
