You are so cute. Look how you stand up for Justice! You didn't notice how "impeachment was off the table" and "investigating war crimes was off the table." I'm sure your hero Dick Cheney -- who is so worthy of trust, won't have to ever endure the need to be proven guilty. Not while we have tea-baggers and the gullible. I'm engaging in wishful thinking -- as if the CIA magically gave up on helping multinationals in Latin America subvert Democracies to keep unions at bay and resources cheap -- and then realized they needed to actually protect America from real threats.
How is Dick Cheney, deserving of Constitutional rights if he wants to deny other's those rights? How can you justify it for yourself -- when you stand behind people who do? I'm thinking, as long as NeoCons are happy with suspending the Constitution (during this time of peril), let's follow their lead.
What's the difference between a 100,000 innocent Iraqis and one Dick Cheney? Location, location, location.
No, the way things work is that we only begin investigations of crooks like Cheney AFTER we've proven to the Media and NeoCons beyond a reasonable doubt that they are guilty and that some Democrat didn't do something similar elsewhere on the planet. Of course, they were the ones who investigated themselves -- so there is no evidence of wrongdoing -- just a trail of blood and the guy who survived torture for 4 years kills himself a few weeks before he is due to see a court room.
I'm all for a fair trial. But we don't do that anymore. AIG was committing fraud -- anyone even under indictment?
The issue isn't about me and my opinions. But of course, some folks will excuse anything the dear leaders come up with by redirecting the issue. I'm the crazy Liberal with ax? No -- this is an American after justice has been denied. We had the Fed and Wall Street in cahoots rip us off. We had the Bush administration lie us into war. We had torture, treason and an assault on our Constitution.
No guilty people have gone to jail but certainly a few heroic whistleblowers have been demonized.
I'm sure everyone is so incredibly shocked about Pelosi -- shocked!
And of course, now the NeoCons are worried about Mexico's problems spilling over. While Glenn Beck talks sedition and klansmen buy bullets.
