I Come to Bury Ceasar

William Rehnquist is dead.

You blocks, you stones
you worse than senseless things
…I come to bury Ceasar
not to praise him.
The evil that men do lives after them,
The good is oft interr’d within their bones

Shakespeare (Julius Ceasar).

All I can say is the Bush administration will be hard pressed to find someone as bad as he was…but I am sure they will do their best. With Katrina, Iraq, and now 2(!) openings on the supreme court, we are in trouble people. Big trouble.

Rage Against This Machine

So it seems that Bush is once again trying to tie 9/11 to Iraq. Come on America WAKE UP, Iraq had absolutely nothing to do with 9/11. We have been round and round this maypole before. Simply put Bush is starting to sound like a broken record. In my opinion the mid term elections are going to go poorly for republicans. They are going to loose several important house and senate seats and then the democrats are going to make Bush’s life hell. The Republican Party led by head treason officer Carl Rove has been so heavy handed with the minority party that we can only expect to see some severe partisan politics from congress.
This will only be magnified if Bush’s poll numbers continue to drop and people continue to wipe the dust caused by 9/11 out of their eyes. People are finally starting to realize that our country is being led by a bunch of Halliburton executives, not leaders. The price of gas, the bad air, the droughts, the hurricanes, maybe just maybe people are starting to understand that we are in the fight of our lives here (literally). If we don’t get some leaders in office that understand things like global warming, poverty as root causes of terrorism, and the importance of reallocating military spending to other more worthy needs, we will go extinct as a species. It’s that simple, we wise up or we die off.

Don’t be Different or They Will Kill You

So what if you could be chased down and killed just because you didn’t look like everyone else? Well that is exactly what happened to Jean Charles de Menezes. He was using the tube in London, was chased down by plain cloths cops, held down and shot five times in the back. What is the reason for this brutality? Was he about to kill someone, no. Was he about to blow something up, no. Was he doing anything wrong at all, no. He was tackled, held down and executed like a dog, because he “looked like a terrorist”. Honestly I expected better from the British. My stomach drops and I feel sick when I read about this. Continue reading Don’t be Different or They Will Kill You

Sing a Sad Song for Karl Rove

It must be hard for poor Karl Rove to keep all the dirty little lies he tells separate. You would think that after a while they would all run together into one big lie. Who knows what he tells himself to be able to sleep at night. But it seems lately as if his empire of fibs is about to come crashing down. Bad things about the Bush administration are leaking out left and right. With the republicans in congress voting against his social security bill, and democrats blocking Bolton’s nomination for U.N. ambassador, old Rovey poo must be having a fit.
