According to Mr. Bill Moyers in an interview with Democracy Now this morning, we need to fight for our freedom with the vigor of the American Revolution. Yes, folks, that is how bad things have become for us. We know how hard, sometimes desperate and impossible a fight our founding fathers had. But they persevered and prevailed in the end. Mr. Moyers also said that the Bush Administration is trying to kill dissidence at every level, hence the changes toward "less biases" at PBS. Most disturbing, Mr. Moyers told Amy Goodman that FDR feared a government of money more than he did a government of a mob. We now have a government of money, according to him. That we do indeed.
I have given serious thought to throwing in the towel with my blog, wondering if it serves any purpose whatsoever. After hearing Mr. Moyers today I decided it would be a cold day in hell before I give it up.
AMERICA IN FUNK OVER BUSH INC. POLICIES
Of course we are! Two stolen elections in a row, a fabricated war, we are no safer now than we were on 9/11, the corporate media isn't holding Bush Inc. responsible for it's illegal dealings and blatant lying, criminals in our government and lobbyists shrug off their wrongdoings, nor are held accountable, and few lift a finger to incriminate them, or if one feebly attempts to, one is attacked viciously and ruthlessly, a fake journalist had access to the President's spokesperson, official logs showed he spent several nights at the WH and no one in the administration or press cares, an administration who wants to turn PBS and our news media into a propaganda machine, Bush, Inc. pays contractors to do some of the jobs normally done by our military, yet contractors are paid significantly more to do the same job, and they are not accountable for their behavior as our military are, the Bush drive to turn our social security funds over to his buddies the Wall St. Fat Cats, to name just a few troubling items.
President Clinton was impeached for lying about an affair. Bush faked a war, we bought into it, like a bunch of manipulated sheep and now it is a horrendous mess with over 1700 of us KILLED not to mention the tens and THOUSANDS Iraqis who have been killed, most of them innocent victims. Not to mention that we are going broke in the process. Flat broke. Dead broke. OF COURSE WE ARE IN A FUNK. Bush Inc. is literally getting away with murder and no one who can is doing anything about it. For a man who professes to be a fundamentalist Christian, under Bush, Inc. there probably hasn't been a time in our government when WH behavior has been more immoral, more unethical, more corrupted by greed and the will to hegemony, and probably more cynical and mean-spirited than this one. Can you think of any?

DOWNING STREET IS FOR LIARS
BUSH INC. SENDS OUT ITS HEAVY HITTER ROVE TO DO DAMAGE CONTROL
Interview with David Gregory and Karl Rove on MSNBC Hard Ball tonight. I suppose b/c Condi's and Dick's messages were a tad in conflict with one another this past weekend and Scott McClellen is running short on language deception, Big Brother Smooth Talking Karl had to come in to attempt to clean up the mess. Rove stays on message all right. Blames the Democrats for every Bush setback (it's all about politics and nothing else, where the Democrats are concerned, according to the smooth operator). Rove, very relaxed, smug and arrogant with typical Bush Inc. egotism proceeds to sell the Bush, Inc. goal of going to war with Iraq as crucially necessary to our national security and collective well-being. Re DSM, Rove said it was some Brits' interpretation of US policy.
Rove must think we Americans have extremely low IQ's. UH – Rove, dude, 61% of us want out of Iraq. We know you guys lied, i.e.you LIED big time.
I forgot to mention that Rove is dismissive of all poll stats not in lock step w/neocon policy.
BUSH INC HAS TO BRING OUT HEAVY HITTER ROVE TO DO DAMAGE CONTROL
DELAY COMPARES IRAQ TO HOUSTON!!!!!!!
Delay tries to pin the harsh realities and failures of Iraq on negative news coverage.
Delay must be snapping. His comments are so absurb and irrational that I am speechless.
"You know, if Houston, Texas, was held to the same standard as Iraq is held to, nobody'd go to Houston, because all this reporting coming out of the local press in Houston is violence, murders, robberies, deaths on the highways," DeLay said
