IT MUST BE STOPPED!

CORRUPTION BY DEGREES!

The corrupt character of the Bush government has long been known to those who dared to look, and it is obvious there can be no vindication for this affront to our government and our justice system. Despite the secrecy, the blocked investigations, the one party rule, and the loyalty of this culture of corruption, the truth is coming out! We have gone past the point where, justice should no longer be denied and removing the scourge of Bush, his Administration, and Republicans like Frist and Delay is essential to the preservation of our political system.

Though denials of the validity of the Downing Street Memo were either hyped, or it was ignored as an “old story

In Latin America, trying to sell his American imperialist snake-oil to a group of nations whose leaders, and especially whose people, were skeptical to hostile, Bush argued against the approach being taken and advocated by the wildly popular Hugo Chavez in Venezuela.

That approach, Bush said, "seeks to roll back the democratic progress of the past two decades by playing to fear, pitting neighbor against neighbor, and blaming others for their own failures to provide for their people."

Bush's argument would seem to describe his own folly very well. His administration's introduction of arrest and indefinite detention without charge or recourse to an attorney or the courts, his authorization of torture, his ramming through Congress of laws granting new police powers, and his two presidential campaigns' successful efforts to subvert the election process, notably in Florida and Ohio, have "rolled back the democratic progress" in the U.S. His declaration of a so-called war on terror and his Homeland Security Department's blatantly political use of terror alerts to divert public attention from his failures and various political crises have played to fear. His effort to introduce a neighborhood spy program (Operation TIPS), and his administration's support for ethnically, racially and religiously-based arrests and round-ups of alleged "terror" suspects has "pitted neighbor against neighbor." Finally, if his response to the Katrina disaster in New Orleans wasn't a case of "blaming others" for his own failure to provide for his people, I don't know what was.

His comment was no doubt met with laughter and derision in Argentina, Brazil and other Latin American countries. Sadly, it was simply reported without comment in this nation's excuse for a news media.
