“From LIES to Libby”

Posted by scorpiomkm on March 7, 2007

“The guilty verdict in the trial of Vice President Cheney’s former aide I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby is the latest in a series of bad news for the Bush administration. Already dealing with intense criticism of its Iraq policy and low approval ratings for President Bush, the White House faces a tough challenge to regain its political footing. Can Bush and Cheney get back on track? And how do you think history will ultimately judge them?”

The George Bush Era has to be one of the WORST Periods of American History. And for a LOT of reasons:

1) Bush/Cheney dragged us into an UN-WINABLE WAR based on a pack of lies

2) Bush/Cheney ~ with the help of a malleable Media and a ‘brain dead’ Populace ~ shreded the Constitution and Civil Liberties

3) Under Bush/Cheney the Rich got richer and poor left for dead

4) Under Bush/Cheney the divisiveness within America is at an all time high

5) With Bush/Cheney the Prestige and Leadership of the United States is at an All Time Low …. with America ranked with Iran as the LEAST nations contributing to world Peace and Development

and on …. and on …. and on.

So as far as I’m concerned, this Libby Verdict comes as no surprise but in fact: just MORE of the same old crap.

I stated back in 2002 that I didn’t recognize this country anymore. Intolerance, Blind Hatred, Ignorance, and the seemingly desire on the part of the Citizenry became en vogue throughout the Land. With little, or no, Logic being advanced by either Party or segment of the population. And even TODAY, we take a cavalier attitude re the Libby Matter as if we shrug our shoulders and bemoan:

Oh, well. Bush will just Pardon Libby in a few months time, and it will all be over with.”

This nation has LOST its collective sense of Outrage! But you see, this is what happens when a People give a little away here and a little away there. When collectively we turn out heads when the government tramples on Civil Liberties and commits unjust ‘Acts’ all under the name of ‘National Security’.

We are truly a ‘Nation of Sheep’. Neutered and spayed from ‘Sea to shining Sea!’

I never-ever again want to hear Americans point their Accusatory finger at the People of Germany during the ‘Third Reich’, and how “They SHOULD HAVE KNOWN better!” verbiage. Because we’ve been no better than Germans insofar as just letting things ‘slide’ …. just so long as we FEEL safe.

Sad.
