Posted in Bush as an idiot, neocon crackpots, Political rant at 10:45 pm by angela

Do you think the President should be able to pardon himself and the rest of his administration for crimes they have committed?

Against his will—the video they tried to suppress

Tom Cruise on Scientology and Scientologists

“You’re either helping and contributing everything you can… or you’re not.”

I’d agree with him at least in principle on that. Yeah, Tom, either you’re part of the problem, or you’re part of the solution. In this case, I’d say he’s part of the problem. Vote, anyone?

Scott Ritter: Do we need to attack Iran?

Posted in Accountability, Bush as an idiot, News at 12:58 pm by angela

He pretty much covers all the bases here, debunking all the arguments we’ve been given. Stop demonizing them, Bush. They are no threat to us.

I couldn’t have said it better myself. Listen to the expert speak.

If you behave as though you are demonically possessed, George, people will think you are. Do you care? And more importantly, are they right?

Bush quips he might stay in power

Posted in Accountability, Fascism, Political rant at 3:15 pm by angela

He’s at it again.

Reporter: Mr. President, following up on Vladimir Putin for a moment, he said recently that next year, when he has to step down according to the constitution, as the president, he may become prime minister; in effect keeping power and dashing any hopes for a genuine democratic transition there.

Bush: I’ve been planning that myself.

Ok, let’s get serious here. Do we really think that Bush would put himself above the law and the Constitution and pull an end-run play into a full dictatorship?

Um…don’t answer that.  Let’s try a different question. Do we think that Bush thinks he deserves to be President-for-life, like such luminaries as Idi Amin?

Yup. I’m sure he thinks he is the best qualified person to be president in the country. And since he’s clearly indicated in the past that there is no law that can stop him from whatever he wishes to do… Would he do that?

Maybe he’s just being his asinine self, the one who can’t crack a joke without sounding like a deadly serious mentally-ill moron. Maybe what he really meant is that now that he’s solved all the problems of this country, he’s going to move on and solve the problems of Russia, too. He is, after all, god’s gift to humanity. Just ask him and he’ll tell you how he spreads good will wherever he travels around the world.

But in case he does decide to continue in the Presidency, I’ve got my CafePress t-shirt all planned. It will say, “Off with his head…of state.”

Close enough.

Taking down illegal wiretapping

Posted in Accountability, neocon crackpots, Political rant at 12:17 am by angela

Should I call it “extrajudicial”? I know the prez thinks that everything and everything he chooses to do – that other people could and would be arrested and convicted for – is extrajudicial, outside of the jurisdiction of any court on earth.

But seriously. I’m on so many email lists. Write to Congress, send money to this cause, call your Senator, sign this petition. It gets pretty boring, because by now it’s clear that our representation is just going to make a little fuss for show, then roll over and give the prez all he wants and more, much MUCH more. The judiciary is no longer independent, and I’m sure that the prez would say that is how it should be, that they should be hired or fired on how well they support the partisan goals of the administration that dug them out from under a log at Regent Law School and propped them up in return for favors and unquestioning support.

So this post is not about what Democrats should do to scrap the program. Clearly they are powerless, they have no will to fight the fascist juggernaut.

But you know, it looks like that’s ok. The Keystone Cops we have in the FBI have taken care of it themselves.

They forgot to pay the phone bill for the wiretapping, and the phone companies pulled the plug on the operation. Free market forces at work. Even the government has to pay their phone bill. MORE
