11:05:00 PM More reasons to vote Democrat in 04...First off.. this just scares me- "The Rise of the Religious Right in the Republican Party"... well its been obvious whats going on, but the way this site spells it all out just scares me to death. Keeping America from becoming a Church State is worth fighting for. I hate that a country of so many different types is being strangled by these people.
Secondly and probably more importantly, this incredible Salon.com article details, from the inside, the chicanery, the truth twisting, the manipulation of data and the worst part: branding those who disagreed with the administration as traitors. We see alot of media about the faulty intelligence, but this article basically says that the administration said damn the torpedos, full speed ahead. Here's a selection from the article:
Now we are told by our president and neoconservative mouthpieces that our sons and daughters, husbands and wives are in Iraq fighting for freedom, for liberty, for justice and American values. This cost is not borne by the children of Wolfowitz, Perle, Rumsfeld and Cheney. Bush's daughters do not pay this price. We are told that intelligence has failed America, and that President Bush is determined to get to the bottom of it. Yet not a single neoconservative appointee has lost his job, and no high official of principle in the administration has formally resigned because of this ill-planned and ill-conceived war and poorly implemented occupation of Iraq.Now don't get me wrong, Saddam needed to go and I think the world is better off without him.. but please oh please don't lie to us to get it done... if thats the case then... well.. we probably won't know till many many years later. Iran-Contra anyone?
Ugh.. its safe to say that the whole religious right agenda disturbs me more then the possibilty of bush lying/etc, but they both leave me with more resolve as time moves towards November.
Finally I ask you this... remember this picture of Fonda and Kerry? The real one, not the fake one... you know what? Up until this point I always thought Kerry was the guy immediately behind Fonda, with the beard and long hair... HAH! Doh!!! He's actually in the upper left corner, a few rows back. SONOFA!
Current Mood: I'll show you WMD!
