Spitting In Our Face

Tuesday, November 08, 2005

Don't get me wrong, I am not surprised by any lie that President Bush spews no matter how obvious, but yesterday's episode of "liars are us" was just too much to believe. President Bush had this to say yesterday: "Our country is at war and our government has the obligation to protect the American people, (from those scary Iraqis) any activity we conduct is within the law. We do not torture."

How stupid does George Bush believe you and I are? Does he think that none of us have heard of Abu Gharib? What about GITMO? Do any of you honestly believe that the United States government does not torture people? After you answer that question chew on this for a minute: the torture being committed by the United States government under the direction of Bush and Rumsfield is your responsibility. It is our fault! It is the age-old rule that if you are in the presence of a crime and do nothing you are just as guilty. True, we are not present at the time of the abuse, however we are allowing this practice to continue by our complacency and reluctance to act. The United States government, for good or bad, is a reflection of it's citizens.

Just to give you an example of how completely obvious and ridiculous these lies are, all you had to do was click on CNN.com yesterday and read the article about President Bush's statement. Two lines underneath that article link was another link to an article regarding five Marines from the 75th Ranger Regiment that have been accused of beating detainees in Iraq. No torture abuse to see here, keep it moving.

"Any activity we conduct is within the law" says it all. George Bush and, unfortunately, the American people, will pay for his actions, but his words will live in infamy for their anti-American, totalitarian nature. Bartlett's quotations will be filled with the terrifying, haunting, callous, and often simple-minded words of the Dubya.

If anyone is interested in a great book that explains how and why the current administration is failing, try getting a copy of Jimmy Carter's new book, Our Endangered Values. Its a pretty quick read.
