I am surprised at how ignorant we are.
Very few people I've spoken to know that the Iraqi Parliament voted us off the island this week. A majority voted to demand that Bush set a withdrawal date, which is pretty tough to do since a fair number of the Iraqi Parliament has been killed or has left the country. But for this vote, they got a quorum.
They seem to know that Dick Cheney went to Iraq and stood behind an armored podium surrounded by camoflaged sand bags and told an assembled group of our troops that he appreciates the sacrifice they are making and will get to see their families in a couple of years, maybe. Then he got in a jet and flew away. People know about this part of the Dick Cheney news but they don't seem to know that Dick Cheney's name has popped up in the DC prostitute scandal.
Talk about service to your country. Any whore that has to service Dick Cheney...OK, I'm too grossed out to go there, sorry.
And folks don't seem to know that a billion dollars worth of Iraqi oil is missing and that Halliburton's fingerprints were left at the crime scene...Dick Cheney again. Oh wait, I read the numbers wrong...Iraq is missing between 100,000 and 300,000 barrels of oil a DAY! Taking the lower figure of 100,000 times 365 days a year times 3 years ( I know we've been there for four years but hey...corruption on this scale takes a while to get going even if you're the vice president) times $60 a barrel is about 6.6 BILLION DOLLARS on the low end and maybe 20 BILLION DOLLARS on the high end.
Screw getting guns and robbing banks! Clyde woulda run for high office if he were around today! And judging from Clyde's absolutely weird sex life, he would have had to be a republican. "Normal" ain't in the picture for those people, as we've seen with Jeff Gannon, male prostitute, Ann Coulter (you tell me), Bill O'Reilly (falafel in the shower), Newt Gingrich(boat load of wives), Duke Cunningham(boat load of prostitutes), etc etc...The list of sex scandals from the republicans is topped only by the list of out and out corruption investigations.
Here's another little tidbit that people are ignorant about. The institution of marriage is safe. It's true...Gay people aren't going to destroy it. Actually the most destructive group as far as marriage is concerned would be Baptists and Evangelicals. a marriage is much more likely to last among catholics and muslims, who have very very strict religious laws governing divorce, and also Atheists. Yep...Atheists are very likely to stay married with a 20% divorce rate. The overall rate is between 30 and 36% so your chance of a failed marriage is at least 50% greater in church...I have just one thng to say about that...
There's a reason we are gettin stupider and its all about the media. it's RIGHT WING! As an example, CBS just fired one of their military advisors, General Batiste because he pointed out that president Bush lied when bush said that he listened to his commanders about Iraq. They kept employed seeral advisors who regularly pimp the 'Surge". Well the surge aint working and CBS is pimping for the Bush administration just like the DC Madame did for her girls.
Anyone who won't service Dick Cheney gets fired.
"Over the last seven years of the Bush Presidency, we have seen the abuse of government to promote a political agenda designed to benefit the conservative base of the Republican Party, special interests and major financial contributors. From holding secret meetings for the energy industry to re-writing science findings to cooking the books on intelligence to the firing of U.S. Attorneys, this Administration has shown time and time again that it will abuse its power and authority."
