BOXER ON BUSH IMPEACHMENT
ROCKEFELLER HAD BEEN INSTRUCTED BY CHENEY TO KEEP HIS MOUTH SHUT ON THE DIRTY SECRET OF WIRETAPPING
ROCKEFELLER'S MEMO TO CHENEY ON JULY 17, 2003
I said I would not comment, but, I can't help it! One tiny observation.....why do I sense the puppet master extraordinaire Cheney's chief motivation is to play Democrats for suckers and fools by instructing certain members to keep mum on Bush's filthy secret of wiretapping, supposedly because of issues of "NATIONAL SECURITY"? My apologies in advance for stating the obvious....in my view…..Cheney created a trap...i.e. he wanted to be able to insist that Democrats were brought into the wiretapping info loop so he could blame them when/if the practice blew apart, as it has indeed. The Bush/Cheney message: insist Dems knew all about it… and pin the nightmare on them.
But Democrats, of course, were not truly informed. They were manipulated and double dealed as the rest of America has been for the past 5 years, starting with the now known and obvious voter fraud fiascos of 2000 and 2004. Where Bush and Cheney are concerned, one has to take the most cynical and almost twisted and paranoid view, most unfortunately. Truth is not truth. Lies are not lies. Make believe is not make believe. Fake is not fake. Black is white. White is black Lies are truth, truth is a lie, and on and on and on and on…….LS

ARE WE HOMEGROWING OUR OWN POOR TO BECOME RADICAL EXTREMISTS WHILE CATERING TO THE COUNTRY CLUB SET?
I think Bush and Co. is trying to win over the less fortunate and poor by simplistic and the systematic dumbed down rhetoric of clichés and empty promises, much of which is religious in tone. The Bush message is being reinforced, almost on cue, by the fanatical religious right. Ironically, Bush and Co. vent about Islamic extremists who are recruiting the poor and disenfranchised to become fighters and martyrs against the evil West.
Interesting to think about. Extraordinary abuse of power and disenfranchisement of certain groups results in what? History holds the answer.

We are in very dire straits ladies and gentlemen. Turn off your TV, enter the blogosphere and get active in whatever way you can. Our future depends upon our ability to cut through the spin, fake statements and speeches, propaganda, and stupid, dumbed down messages and news that is not news but mindless entertainment. LS
