We'll Be Coming Around The Bend, Well, No We Won't

Bush and his administration, the right wing money machine and GOP Philanthropists, have now taken the United States around a bend we'll never come back from. Because of the President and the Republican Congress, America is now seen as a war monger, who pushes this agenda forward regardless of international law or common sense. We outsource torture. We cut back on our aid to struggling nations. We include a provision in disbursements for the treatment of AIDS in foreign countries that condums can't be offered or used in education and now the AIDS epidemic has taken a staggering upswing. We create a new kind of war prisoner called a detainee, in a prison out of our country so domestic laws can't protect them and the Geneva Convetion won't apply. The Republican Congress shreds all ideas of domestic fiscal sanity and creates a deficit that will cripple the next few generations. And the Right marches on blasting how great it all is like the Chinese loud speakers blasting propoganda from the rooftops of Tibet. Bill Bradley lays it out in expert analysis in an Op Ed in the New York Times. This link from SeeingTheForest.

Off-topic, but even folks like Newsweek's Jonathan Alter are finding the hypocracy of the bushies a bit hard to swallow:
"When he was governor of Texas, George W. Bush presided over 152 executions, more than took place in the rest of the country combined. In at least a few of these cases, reasonable doubts about the guilt of the condemned were raised. But Bush cut his personal review time for each case from a half hour to a mere 15 minutes (most other governors spend many hours reviewing each capital case to assure themselves that there's no doubt of guilt). His explanation was that he trusted the courts to sort through the life-and-death complexities. That's right: the courts."
