About Me

Gee - my profile info didn't migrate from the old DU I guess? The main thing - 90% refers to the maximum allowable percentage of nitromethane fuel permitted in modern NHRA Top Fuel and Funny cars. Which is what makes current "nostalgia nitro" so cool - you can still "tip the can" and run straight nitro, if you want to. I'm an aging northeast liberal with an overdeveloped justice gland. OUR INSTITUTIONS ARE INFESTED WITH GREEDY AND CORRUPT SOCIOPATHS

Simple question

Is there no other legal mechanism to hold GW Bush, et al, accountable for their treason besides President Obama?

A Nuremberg kind of trial or the World Court or the United Nations?

Or along the lines of Vincent Bugliosi's book, The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder, published May 2008. It was a recipe for Attorney's General FROM ANY STATE to bring GWB to court if that state lost a soldier in Iraq.

I just recalled in the middle of writing this post, that I sent a modest campaign contribution to somebody running for AG (in perhaps Vermont or New Hampshire? Somewhere in New England not CT, MA, RI or ME)? that pledged to prosecute GWB. It was a woman, independent? green? Dem primary? I forget. 2006-2009 time frame.

Could all this be an Obama LBJ/FDR classic play; "I AGREE WITH YOU. NOW MAKE ME DO IT."?

Bush's treason is just as rotten in the present as it was ten years ago. I don't think you can run out the clock on treason?

but his predictions for the future of our democracy is as bleak as Orwell's Animal Farm or Terry Gilliam's movie Brazil.

And I happen to think he's largely correct.

And it does seem highly probable our own government is planning for the societal upheaval to come as a result of climate change and already has a bunch of "Camp Reagan's" in the planning phase.*

Don't those with Tea Party leanings also believe the government is going to inter them just like the Japanese Americans in WW2? And isn't this why they want their guns; to stave off the government when they come to take them away?

I'm a progressive liberal and on this point I agree with them. Except for the gun shoot out. I'll go willingly. I'm 59 and weary.

I think I got a bead on what he's made of.

He is nothing more than an archetypal corporate sociopath.

Can any one name anything good he contributed to our society and our world in his time of public service? Or the time when he was President of Dresser or Halliburton or any other company his ilk ends up running to their personal benefit?

He is the walking and breathing embodiment of modern American Fascism, the merger of corporation and state.

There’s prisoners with multiple life sentences that did about .001% of the damage Cheney has managed to inflict on his fellow human beings. Sending 4,500 American servicemen to their deaths based on lies he created puts him at least in the top ten political mass murderers of the last 75 years.
