Watching George W. Bush in operation these last couple of weeks is like having an out-of-body experience. On acid. During a nightmare. In a different galaxy.
It's not so astonishing, of course, that a country could have a bad leader whose aims are nefarious on the occasions when they are competent enough to rise to that level of intentionality.
What is harder to explain is how the citizens of a country of such remarkable achievements in other domains, and with the capacity to choose, allow this to happen.

Haha, I almost posted this article this morning, but thought, "I'll probably have half the members wanting to kick my ass." lol
But it's true to an extent. America's complacency and indifference to this crap is precisely why these criminals continue to push the out boundaries of the law and quite literally get away with murder and continual raping of this nation. It's almost like the people won't wake up until we've all hit ground zero, and that day is coming fast.

Democracy is based on the assumption that a million men are wiser than one man. How's that again? I missed something.

Man will never be free until the last king is strangled with the entrails of the last priest.
