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

The Neocons were wrong since before 9/11

I became politically aware after the corrupt 2000 election, so when 9/11 happened I paid close attention to what our government decided to do in the aftermath.

Remember "We are all Americans now" and the entire world showered us with love and support?

Then they started talking about the fucking "Axis of Evil" and how we just had to get Iraq and I went to myself "WTF? The White House, particularly Dick Cheney, fucking manufactured and stove-piped MUCH OF THE "INTELLIGENCE" that justified the invasion.

935 Lies: The Future of Truth and the Decline of America’s Moral Integrity by Charles Lewis, one of many books that tells the real story about "getting those (IRAQ) bastards that did this to us".

We had the good will of the world behind us, and these greedy evil mf'ers used 9-11 as a pretext to invade a country that had nothing to do with 9-11 what so ever.

They squandered the goodwill of the world and produced a immense tragedy that diminished America's moral stature in the world for generations. I mean, we fucking tortured people and that was official policy straight from the White House. (And Jeb suggests he would do it again!) This was the first time since George Washington we tortured as official government policy and is a moral stain on our character FOREVER. We can never again claim the moral high ground on the world stage as we did the same despicable things the despots throughout the ages have done. Like they were saying to themselves, "well we really fucked up "keeping the country safe" with 9/11 on our watch, so we have to show the word we're really bad ass mf'ers and we'll take out any middle eastern country that even looks at us funny."

I went to a town hall meeting hosted by my Congressman John Larson BEFORE THE WAR in West Hartford and stood up and told him I'd prefer the Mafia in the White House, because they are more honorable people than the GWB crew.

I went to the first anti-war protest of my life in January DC 2013 because I knew the whole deal was bogus. I'm just an average internet user. If I had it figured out, shame on all the pols in the Washington bubble that got it wrong, probably as a matter of political expediency and lack of moral courage. Any pol still serving that voted in favor of the IWR should have to pay a heavy political price for getting it so wrong and causing over a decade of wasting trillions of tax dollars and human misery with absolutely no upside I can see!

It will amaze me for the rest of my life that they managed to pull off "the worst foreign policy decision in a generation" (Nice euphemism for war crimes and treason. And others consider it the worst in all of American history!) They knew exactly what they were doing and swept together enough bogus and manufactured intelligence to save us from "the smoking gun that may come in the form of a mushroom cloud". The crowning example was Cheney's minions feeding Judy Miller from the NY Times bogus and somewhat classified info and then going on MTP and saying he could now speak about it because its in the paper. Well, sure, pal, you put it there!

If we had the Democracy we think we have, and for some reason are so proud of, then the entire GWB White House of 2002-2008 should be spending the rest of their lives in solitary confinement.

Lastly, who benefited from the Iraq Invasion? I don't even know who got all the oil, but I would say the military-industrial-congressional-surveillance-complex and all the people in government that hate our Constitution were the only winners. One hell of a cost in human misery and moral standing just so a handful of excessively wealthy psychopath fat cats can enjoy a few more yachts, private jets, vacation homes and gold chains for themselves.
