War Mongers, War Buyers
In an interview on CNN, investigative journalist Seymour Hersch, who has just exposed
an on-going $400 million covert military/intelligence operation being prosecuted by the Bush Administration against Iran, had this
to say: "And by the way, it's the Democrats
in Congress who basically looked the other way and said, 'Take the money and run'..."
All those who think the Democrats are the "party of change," the Sucker Land Express to Obamaville is now boarding.
, people. The Democratic leadership in Congress has authorized the Bush Administration's reassignment of military funds to a program of state-sponsored terrorism against a sovereign nation. The rank-and-file Democrats, now fully aware of this, are not taking even the first step to strip the President of the authority to conduct this project. The putative heir to Empire being anointed by the Democrats has not even so much as hinted
at condemnation of this abomination and those who 'looked the other way' after approving it.
What is it going to take to shut down this corrupted government all the way from its unaccountable President to its appeasing Congress to its rubber-stamp judiciary?
Another war? Apparently not: the opposition party is paying the way for that.
Another 9/11? Not likely: the opposition party jumped right on the bandwagon to hand Bush our civil liberties as payment for his last catastrophic failure to protect the homeland from a handful of crazed religious criminals.
Your future? Sure: an addled, corrupted corporate shill versus a vacuous babe-in-the-woods with a cult following that features gyrating sex-pots on YouTube.
The Dark Wraith wonders when, exactly, it was that the term "false hope" replaced "unrelenting fury."
after you're done check out my latest post over at Big Brass Blog. . . i'm doing a lot of rant and growl myself.
maybe they found pandora's box and let hope out forever.
Good afternoon, Minstrel Boy.
I already saw your post over there and thought to myself that there must be some Great Convergence of the Cynics happening.
I have another post coming up in a few days about something just released by the Bank for International Settlements. The ominous tone is enough to give me one of those horrific chills that comes when this little voice in the back of my head says, "You mean I might have been right? Again?!"
The Dark Wraith should probably consider not writing about Doom and Gloom if it's going to come to pass so often.
Well, after that I just had to go over to the GoogleNews page at http://news.google.com/news?ned=tus&rec=0 and punch up "Bank for International Settlements" at the top of the page. Oh my. Over 2200 "news" hits with the Wall Street Urinal at the top of the list.
DEflation, eh? Maybe?
I'm reminded of the story out of post-World War I Germany where it took a wheelbarrow full of cash to buy a loaf of bread. Guess I'd probably have to trade the wheelbarrow for a jug of wine and then rely on some sort of spiritual quality to garner a female companion to share it with.
Good evening, Peter.
As I've told you before, the next time someone asks you, "What time is it?" your reply should be obvious:
"It's later than you think."
The Dark Wraith likes dark humor.
I gotta admit, I know the feeling.
So, what to do, what to do?

OWL, I think the Wraith might be telling us it doesn't make any difference what we do, since we've probably already done it.
What will it take to shut down this corrupted government?
Why, alien hordes brandishing star wars technology that actually works instead of simply providing an excuse to bleed the budget.
Or the complete melting of the poles. After all, when recently reported on CNN that NOAA were predicting the loss of all arctic ice this summer, it was reported by the Bu$hCo-approved scientist interviewed (NOT Jim Hansen) "...it's purely symbolic".
I can think of nothing more symbolic, effective, or inevitably ending the government than having the White House or Wall Street under 20 feet of water. Permanently.
