Is America Brave Or Stupid Enough To Keep The Status Quo?
Like many others, I have also gotten a few of the "Robocalls" instigated by Rove and his associates. My unwanted calls came from...

Early voting in Florida had voters discovering that the Democrat they voted for suddenly switched to the Republican candidate instead when they tried to confirm their votes.
Connecticut has weird stuff going on as does Ohio...
The Head of the Election Board in Missouri, I think it was, was told three times by an election worker that she would have to show a picture ID in order to vote even tho the state's Supreme Court made it very clear that photo IDs were not required to vote. The Election Board officer happened to be a Democrat...go figure.
Bush, Cheney and the Republicans are now asking "What will the Democrats do to win in Iraq?" It's a sorry ploy to undermine the minority.
I've got a better question for America...
What are the Republicans doing to "win" in Iraq?
Answer...NOT A DAMN THING.
What are the Republicans doing about the high cost of Health care?
Answer...Letting drug companies and Insurance companies write legislation that hurts most Americans while lining very few pockets to a massive profit margin.
What are the Republicans doing about the high price of fuel?
Answer...ALLOWING OIL CORPORATIONS TO SLIDE ON ROYALTIES THEY OWE THE GOVERNMENT, ALLOWING HALLIBURTON TO DEFRAUD THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND GIVING THEM MORE TAX BREAKS EVEN THOUGH THEY HAVE MADE RECORD PROFITS.
I know people who have to cut back on groceries to afford enough gas to go back and forth to work while Exxon's last CEO draws over $190,000 a day in his retirement package...am I the only one who sees a problem with this?
What are the Republicans doing about giving the country a raise in minimum wage?
Answer...DOING EVERYTHING IN THEIR POWER TO STOP IT FROM HAPPENING WHILE GIVING THEMSELVES A RAISE ALMOST EVERY YEAR.
What can Americans do?
Do you want the truth or a Rove fantasy?
Hold the Republican party responsible for corruption, lack of accoutability, and putting our country at financial risk. There will be NO ACCOUNTABILITY as long as Republicans hold the Congress AND Senate.
The Congress and Senate should not be a rubber stamp for an out of touch White House and America would not stand for our Constitution being subverted like it is if we really were brave.
I suppose we shall soon see whether America is truly brave...or if stupidity wins out yet again.
With hope for the first time in 6 years, I am proud of America.
The Rubber Stamp Is No Longer Available.
Even with the purging of voters, dirty tricks and scare tactics...the Republicans who have had total control to devastate America, Afghanistan and Iraq are no longer in control.
With any luck, there will now be at least some accountability.
THAT is the best I can hope for...THANK YOU AMERICA...
Genocide At The Hands Of Israel Has Not Stopped
One has to wonder how and why Israel gets such a free ticket to slaughter those it does not want to get along with but it looks obvious enough...if Israel suffocates all of the Palestinian people (the ones they do not murder) they will have nothing to stop them from taking the land left behind.
Gaza is dying. The Israeli siege of the Palestinian enclave is so tight that its people are on the edge of starvation. Here on the shores of the Mediterranean a great tragedy is taking place that is being ignored because the world's attention has been diverted by wars in Lebanon and Iraq.
A whole society is being destroyed. There are 1.5 million Palestinians imprisoned in the most heavily populated area in the world. Israel has stopped all trade. It has even forbidden fishermen to go far from the shore so they wade into the surf to try vainly to catch fish with hand-thrown nets.
Many people are being killed by Israeli incursions that occur every day by land and air. A total of 262 people have been killed and 1,200 wounded, of whom 60 had arms or legs amputated, since 25 June, says Dr Juma al-Saqa, the director of the al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza City which is fast running out of medicine. Of these, 64 were children and 26 women. This bloody conflict in Gaza has so far received only a fraction of the attention given by the international media to the war in Lebanon.
The above article can be found here in The Independent.
Just another in your face slap to the world and anyone who wants to believe that the American, British or Israeli government believes in or abides by democracy.
Millions of people are starving, men, women and children...all because the three countries that preach democracy did not agree with who was DEMOCRATCALLY ELECTED in the Palestinian elections so the U.S and U.K. cut off all financial aid and now they are letting their Middle Eastern bulldog...Israel...kill off any chance of the Palestinian people making ANY kind of life.
It was on 25 June that the Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit was taken captive and two other soldiers were killed by Palestinian militants who used a tunnel to get out of the Gaza Strip. In the aftermath of this, writes Gideon Levy in the daily Haaretz, the Israeli army "has been rampaging through Gaza - there's no other word to describe it - killing and demolishing, bombing and shelling, indiscriminately". Gaza has essentially been reoccupied since Israeli troops and tanks come and go at will. In the northern district of Shajhayeh they took over several houses last week and stayed five days. By the time they withdrew, 22 Palestinians had been killed, three houses were destroyed and groves of olive, citrus and almond trees had been bulldozed.
Fuad al-Tuba, the 61-year-old farmer who owned a farm here, said: "They even destroyed 22 of my bee-hives and killed four sheep." He pointed sadly to a field, its brown sandy earth churned up by tracks of bulldozers, where the stumps of trees and broken branches with wilting leaves lay in heaps. Near by a yellow car was standing on its nose in the middle of a heap of concrete blocks that had once been a small house.
His son Baher al-Tuba described how for five days Israeli soldiers confined him and his relatives to one room in his house where they survived by drinking water from a fish pond. "Snipers took up positions in the windows and shot at anybody who came near," he said. "They killed one of my neighbours called Fathi Abu Gumbuz who was 56 years old and just went out to get water."
Sometimes the Israeli army gives a warning before a house is destroyed. The sound that Palestinians most dread is an unknown voice on their cell phone saying they have half an hour to leave their home before it is hit by bombs or missiles. There is no appeal.
But it is not the Israeli incursions alone that are destroying Gaza and its people. In the understated prose of a World Bank report published last month, the West Bank and Gaza face "a year of unprecedented economic recession. Real incomes may contract by at least a third in 2006 and poverty to affect close to two thirds of the population." Poverty in this case means a per capita income of under $2 (£1.06) a day.
There are signs of desperation everywhere. Crime is increasing. People do anything to feed their families. Israeli troops entered the Gaza industrial zone to search for tunnels and kicked out the Palestinian police. When the Israelis withdrew they were replaced not by the police but by looters. On one day this week there were three donkey carts removing twisted scrap metal from the remains of factories that once employed thousands.
"It is the worst year for us since 1948 [when Palestinian refugees first poured into Gaza]," says Dr Maged Abu-Ramadan, a former ophthalmologist who is mayor of Gaza City. "Gaza is a jail. Neither people nor goods are allowed to leave it. People are already starving. They try to live on bread and falafel and a few tomatoes and cucumbers they grow themselves."
Again, Israel has knocked out the electric power station in Gaza, destroying civilian infrastructure as they did in Lebanon, which is yet another item counted as a WAR CRIME.
Where are those who preach about democracy and human rights? Why are they not putting a stop to Israeli terrorism? They are sitting on their couch hoping Israel will enpty out parts of the region so they can empty out the rest. Curse every single one of them and for every innocent killed, may they be haunted and plagued by their complicity.
Many people get testy with me for stating something that calls Israel terrorists. Not all Israelis are terrorists but many are. If you do not believe that it is possible, maybe you should check your actual history...
History actually acknowledges that plans to create Israel began before 1917 in Britain. I have read some history...it starts with WWI and The Balfour declaration. In fact, the Balfour declaration was seen by many as a betrayal of promises made to the Arab people by Britain itself...a contradiction of agreements made to the Arabs.
In his November, 2002 interview with the New Statesman magazine, the UK Foreign Secretary, Jack Straw, has blamed Britain's imperial past for many of the modern political problems, including the Arab-Israeli conflict.
"The Balfour declaration and the contradictory assurances which were being given to Palestinians in private at the same time as they were being given to the Israelis—again, an interesting history for us, but not an honourable one," he said.
The "League of Nations" exercise was nothing more than a British plan set into motion.
Britain placed a ban on Jewish immigration to Palestine before WWII ended. The ban prevented a massive influx of Jews to an already tense Arab/Jewish living arrangement. The ban was kept up after the war ended and the Zionist apparently saw fit to assasinate British officials and commit acts of terrorism upon British entities which led to Britian turning over Israel's welfare (mandate) to the U.S. in 1948.
It is ABSOLUTE FACT that Israel is fully capable of terrorism and uses terrorism to achieve any goal it deems necessary...otherwise why would they have committed acts of terrorism on the very people who manipulated to give them what they wanted...
Israel's instigation in Lebanon...
Israel is at it yet again...violating Lebanon's airspace and now killing three who "looked" threatening.
An Israeli army spokesman said on Monday evening: "A force identified armed gunmen coming toward them in a threatening way. The soldiers fired at them and identified three hits."
It is unclear if the men were killed in the shooting which is one of the most serious incidents since a ceasefire between Israel and Hezbollah began on August 13.
The above article can be found at AlJazeera.net.
Israeli publications even admit that Israel is instigating as this quote from Haaretz states...
Even if the tasks that the multinational force will undertake will not meet Israel's requirements, or address all the articles of Resolution 1701, it will force both Lebanon and Israel to recognize the fact the UN decisions have practical significance. Lebanon needs this force because it is meant to assist the government and will not only act to deter Hezbollah, because it has undertaken to help UNIFIL, but it will also be a deterrent against Syrian and Iranian involvement in the country. From Israel's point of view such a significant force could show perhaps the sole diplomatic gain in this war, and may even allow the continuation of certain Israeli-instigated operations inside Lebanese territory.
LOOKED threatening?? What is this...PRE-EMPTIVE INSTIGATION????You used to have to make some type of threatening ACTION before being killed during a cease fire. I guess George's policy of pre-emptive strikes also means Israel has the right to pre-emt their behavior in someone else's country as well.
I can not understand why the "white powers" of the world insist on blaming those who have defended against Israeli aggression as the "terrorists" when it is more than obvious that it is Israel who has caused the conflicts over and over again...seeing the Middle East as theirs by right as the "chosen people of God".
It is more amazing still that the International Community has allowed Israel to get away with the same, if not worse, actions that Arabs and Muslums are accused of and persecuted for.
It is a severe double standard and is severely wrong. If Israel wishes to terrorize it's neighbors as it does, it should be held accountable. If Israel is allowed Nuclear technology for domestic use, Iran should have the same right. If Israel violates U.N. resolutions, they should be made to suffer the consequences...
...but they literally get away with murder...
It's easy to see why many think Israel has no right to exist.
Israel Violates Cease Fire Resolution 1701
Who would have ever gurssed that Israel, instead of Hezbollah, would violate the cease fire so soon?
Considering the Israeli publications were expounding before the cease fire about how Israel would be back in Lebanon soon...to finish what they started...I have expected this.
According to Haaretz The Israeli forces were wearing military clothing of the Lebanese army and also driving their vehicles...
The raid was authorized in a meeting Olmert and Peretz held with the IDF senior command on Wednesday.
Hezbollah's Al-Manar TV said the unit was transported by helicopter before dawn, and was being driven in two vehicles to raid the office of senior Hezbollah official Sheikh Mohammed Yazbek in the village of Bodai before being discovered by Hezbollah militants. A battle gunbattle erupted and the troops were forced to retreat, Hezbollah TV said.
Lebanese sources said the troops were carried in two Lebanese army vehicles and were wearing Lebanese army uniforms.
How can this not be seen as a flagrant and willful violation of the cease fire is anyones guess. If that were not enough...
Earlier Saturday, Israeli aircraft fired several rockets at a target in a Hezbollah stronghold in eastern Lebanon, a Lebanese security source said.
Not only a planned covert raid but missiles fired as well. You can find this article HERE.
Other articles from this publication go on and on about how Israeli did not violate the cease fire but it is obvious they did. In fact, what they have done is give Hezbollah an excuse, if they should want it...and nobody could rightfully hold them accountable as the aggressor.
If Israel truly wanted to PROTECT itself they would not be willfully giving Hezbollah or anyone else reason to fire on them. It really appears as if all Israel can truly claim in it's actions is that they want total domination in the ME and security is no more than an afterthought and excuse for their aggression.
I still can not see any difference between Israel DETAINING Palestinians and the KIDNAPPING of three Israeli soldiers...the only difference is the word used but it is still the very same, absolutely identical action.
Israel has just "detained" more of the Palestinian government. I emphasize...WHEN YOU CROSS YOUR NEIGHBOR'S BORDERS AND "DETAIN" ONE OF THEIR CITIZENS, IT IS KIDNAPPING.
Hezbollah and Hamas are not guilty of anything that Israel has not done to them. Without Israel's aggression, there would be no Hezbollah or Hamas.
There is a nasty similarity between Israel and the U.S here, though, that shines a brilliant light on policies shared by both countries. Neither believes in democrasy. They both tout it and expound on it but both countries react to it the same...
If Israel and/or the U.S does not like the people that are democratically elected in another country, both feel free and obliged to undermine, interfere with or even distroy the democratically elected government of that country.
Israel and the U.S also are identical at the present for their aspirations to make the population afraid in order to force bad policy into play.
I do not need or wants Bush/Cheney's "Fear Factor"...I refuse to be terrorized by my faux government.
I am an American. I am a Patriot. I am strong with or without Bush/Cheney. I would rather die standing than live on my knees as they would have me do.
Israel and the U.S. do not care or desire a democrasy of a nation's people, the people's will and votes are meaningless. The only people entitled to choose who runs any government are the arrogant leaders of the U.S and Israel...in that order.
Middle East Remoldeling...Courtesy of the U.S, U.K. and Israel.
Not bad for someone who is not in the political spectrum at all...I have done well Yoda.
I saw the truth as it unfolded (so far) and did not buy the horse manure the U.S government has been shoveling.
Bush stated recently the Hezbollah, Hamas, Syria and Iran are the problems...NOT HARDLY. If THEY were the problems, THEY would not be STUPID enough to do something, lie about it and then expect that no one would ever find out.
ANOTHER BUSH ADMINISTRATION LIE...
A spokesperson for the Bush administration has stated that Bush had no knowledge of Israel's war plans but before that statement was made the Jerusalem Post stated that the U.S. government had expressed their interest in having Israel attack Syria...
The fact appears to be that Bush gave the green light to Israel in May and it had been planned as an appetizer for the U.S. to attack Iran. Unfortunately, Olmert tried to use the same "Shock and Awe" type of campaign that Bush and Co. used in Iraq with as much success as the U.S. had...NOT MUCH.
Like the Iraq stupidity, Israel murdered hundreds of innocent people, destroyed much of the civilian infrastructure, caused a major ecological disaster to the Mediteranian Sea, poluted Lebanon with Depleted Uranium (not to mention evidence of the use of chemical weapons - both courtesy of their friends Dick and George) and made the people of Lebanon refugees in their own country...which, BTW is a war crime to target civilian infrastructure.
The really interesting part is how Israel and Bush say that Hezbollah provoked it by kidnapping two soldiers (if Israel does it they are detaining/arresting, NOT kidnapping).
Three days after the May 23 summit between Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and U.S. President George W. Bush, a car bomb killed two officials of Islamic Jihad in the Lebanese city of Sidon.
Immediately, Lebanese officials, including Prime Minister Fouad Siniora, denounced the murder of brothers Nidal and Mahmoud Majzoub and pointed the finger at Israel as the prime suspect. On June 10, a man named Mahmoud Rafeh was arrested for the car bombing and, according to the Lebanese army, confessed that he was a Mossad agent.
Rafeh, a 59-year-old retired police officer, belonged to a “terror network working for the Israeli Mossad,” which had smuggled a booby-trapped door into Lebanon from Israel for use in the assassination, the Lebanese army said.
In retrospect, the Majzoub assassination looks to have been part of a larger U.S.-Israeli strategy – following the Olmert-Bush summit – to encourage a tit-for-tat escalation of violence that would ratchet up pressure on Palestinian and Lebanese militants – and through them their allies in Syria and Iran.
A 'Pretext' War in Lebanon
The above article come from a seasoned reporter who uncovered many of the details of another illegal U.S. fiasco...the Iran - Contra Affair.
Israel drew the first blood and provoked Hezbollah as an excuse.
Israel does commit terrorism, as often if not more than anyone else, yet Bush with his Chutzpah rhetoric state that Hezbollah, Hamas, Syria and Iran are all in the "TERROR" thing together with al Qeada against us (the good guys).
I am really starting to think Israel had something to do with 9/11...the FBI has no solid evidence on AQ/bL being responsible and this administration, like Israel attacking Lebanon, had to come up with an excuse to get us to war. It is obvious that we have not been told the truth about anything and that coupled with the lack of evidence, etc...the fact that Israel has attacked Americans before without even a slap on the hand and Bush willingness to plot with Israel...that is the only scenario that makes any reasonable sense.
You give me an excuse to go to war and I'll give you what you need to do the same...together we can remodel the Middle East in our own image...
Yet America and Israel are the main culprits in trying to destroy democrasy in other countries, either by use of force, interfering with the voting process, intimidation or a down and dirty coup (there is always funding the opposition to go with other underhanded activity).
If we (US and Israel) do not like those who are democratically elected, we find a way to replace them. Hell...people in America can not have all their votes counted for those in charge believe they have some type of divine entitlement and they will do anything to hang on to that control...even at the expense of U.S. citizens. The U.S can not spread democracy if it is always working to undo it, at home and elsewhere.
Israel did NOT win this war of choice with Lebanon. They showed their callousness and inhumanity (not to mention arrogance and stupidity...sounds like someone else we know, does it not?).
Hezbollah did NOT lose in the war that Israel provoked. Intelligent people rallied for them
America, in general, has to be absolutely stupid beyond reckoning to buy Bush's horse sh*t (sad to say when I live here but, hey...I did not buy it at all).
Since "BIG BROTHER" is so busy spying on American citizens and labelling any dissent as "terrorist sympathizers" or "enemy combatents" I might end up disappearing for expounding the truth and expressing what USED TO BE my Constitutional Right...
I would do it again in a heartbeat.
No more fun with Dick and George...awwwwwwwwww, shucks...
Despite Israel's Acceptance of Resolution, More Civilians are dying.
Something is seriously wrong with this scenario. The U.N. Security Council agreed unanimously on the resolution to stop the killing but as soon as it was agreed to, Israel expanded it's terroristic efforts, not only in Lebanon but Gaza as well.
Would anyone in a civilized world accept the idea that another country has a right to call you, tell you to leave your home and everything you own because they are going to bomb you and then either distroy your home or not?
The call that tells you: run, you're about to lose your home and possessions
That is terrorism and Israel is doing it...and has been for a while. It is psycological warfare amounting to torture.
Would an American be willing to suffer that from anyone? The answer is a resounding NO!.
Israeli apologists who use the pathetic excuse that Israel is trying to minimize civilian casualties need to wake up and smell what they are rolling in...and it sure ain't rose petals.
I have been reading two Israeli websites quite a bit over the past couple weeks...Haaretz and The Jerusalem Post...and if I had a say about my tax dollars going to Israel I would not be sending half of what I have to.
I never held any belief in some of the things I have heard about Israel but as more of a realist I have to wonder where their self rightous "we are the victim" ideology comes from. There are a few things that I have read that were written by people who ARE realistic but those few people are condemed as an anti-semite or a "self hating Jew". One comment over one such realistic post was from a woman calling herself "Daisy" who justified the civilian deaths and destruction in Lebanon by way of claiming that the whole region really belonged to the Jews anyway...the "Holy Land" belonged to God's chosen people (Jews) and that was all the justification needed.
It angered me to the core to read on both websites how the U.S. was giving them unprecedented leeway for their bombing of the Lebonese people...America is very much complicit in the murder of innocent civilians.
When we have military personnel that refuse duty as a Conscientous Objector, it is normally because they do not want to participate in killing that they consider morally, legally and ethically wrong...and they normally end up in confinement of some sort.
I read in both above publications that they have had objector released from fighting in Lebanon over their belief that lands Israel occupied (stole) should have not been released...area like Gaza. NO JAIL, just dismissal. Settlements that were illegal, according to Internation opinion are Israel's rightful property and that the legality of it was rectified is insult to many Israelis. How screwed is that.
Before buying my property, I rented it. When getting ready for purchase my property was surveyed. It was only then, after 2 1/2 years with the same neighbor behind me, did I find out that my neighbor behind me had taken it upon himself to annex almost half of my back yard right before I had moved in. He claimed much of my yard but had not purchased it from the owner. I reclaimed my property with some difficulty but was harassed for it until they moved out. Would any other American just GIVE their property to someone who decided to "squat" on it? Again a resounding NO! To make it more ironic, the man who decided to annex half of my back yard is supposed to be a preacher...head of the local Southern Baptists. Religion is an excuse to take what is not yours (steal), get out of responsibility for your actions, murder the innocent, discriminate and/or manipulate those who have given up the right to think for themselves.
To reiterate...religion is not of any God, it is man made and politicall based to allow only a few to have power in order to use the masses to their own political purpose. Very few religions, even fewer monotheistic religions of which there are three, have heirarchies that do not live in splender while the masses live considerably less well off...and God has not a damn thing to do with that. The Pope is a fabulous example.
I now have a much more interesting view of "Dark Helmet"...a character in the movie "Spaceballs".
He is apparently fashioned after reality by the looks of it.
STOP THE ISRAELI AGGRESSION AND TERRORISM!
Terror In The Skies...Foiled Plot or More Fake Fear Factor?
I knew something did not ring true in the lastest "Fear Factor" attempt by the Bush administration.
Just like the guys arrested in Florida for talking big, apparently the Brits accused of trying to blow up planes coming to America hadn't purchased airline tickets, some didn't have passports and the real evidence the Brit Authorities could have gotten if given more time to investigate (looking for solid evidence) was thwarted by none other than the Bush administration.
Source: U.S., U.K. at odds over timing of arrests
A senior British official knowledgeable about the case said British police were planning to continue to run surveillance for at least another week to try to obtain more evidence, while American officials pressured them to arrest the suspects sooner. The official spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the case.
In contrast to previous reports, the official suggested an attack was NOT IMMINENT, saying the suspects had not yet purchased any airline tickets. In fact, some did not even have passports.
It appears that the Neo Conservatives are again attempting to make a mountain out of an anthill in the hopes of scaring America into re-electing Republicans in November by saying they are "keeping us safer than the Democrats would. Considering the Brits were trying to get real evidence and the Bush administration prevented them from doing so, in what way have they kept America safer? Looks like they blew it again.
The source did say, however, that police believe one U.K.-based suspect was ready to conduct a "dry run." British authorities had wanted to let him go forward with part of the plan, but the Americans balked.
At the White House, a top aide to President Bush denied the account.
"There was unprecedented cooperation and coordination between the U.S., the U.K. and Pakistani officials throughout the case," said Frances Townsend, Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism, "and we worked together to protect our citizens from harm while ensuring that we gathered as much info as possible to bring the plotters to justice. There was no disagreement between U.S. and U.K. officials."
Another U.S. official, however, acknowledges there was disagreement over timing. Analysts say that in recent years, American security officials have become edgier than the British in such cases because of missed opportunities leading up to 9/11.
Aside from the timing issue, there was excellent cooperation between the British and the Americans, officials told NBC.
The British official said the Americans also argued over the timing of the arrest of suspected ringleader Rashid Rauf in Pakistan, warning that if he was not taken into custody immediately, the U.S. would "render" him or pressure the Pakistani government to arrest him.
British security was concerned that Rauf be taken into custody "in circumstances where there was due process," according to the official, so that he could be tried in British courts. Ultimately, this official says, Rauf was arrested over the objections of the British.
So the Bush administration not only interfered with the investigation but they also added strings that would, if these guys were actual terrorist, aid them in court to get off on technicalities. No solid evidence, no "dry run", no airline tickets, no passports and no DUE PROCESS. Add these to the things that make you go "hmmmmm"...
Do not forget...THERE WAS NO IMMINENT THREAT...just another fabrication of Bush/Cheney.
Why would the Bush administration interfere with a serious Brit investigation and then LIE about it?
Like Chertoff stating to the Press that he has no definate association with these guys and al Quada but turns around and makes a statement that it looks like an AQ setup,
BTW...on June 5, 2006, FBI spokesman, Chief of Investigative Publicity Rex Tomb said, "The FBI has no hard evidence connecting Usama Bin Laden to 9/11."
We have been told for years that bin Laden was responsible. Who is not being honest here? No evidence means the Idiot in Chief needs to get his facts straight. No actual evidence that al Queda had anything to do with 9/11 either, according to the FBI. Could it be that AQ is nothing more than a fantasy group of the Neo Cons, useful to scare the hell out of those easily led and gullible? Naw...George, Dick and Donald would not even THINK of lying to us, right? You could believe that but they have been caught on tape doing just that.
If the Republican machine really does keep us safer than anyone else, why is it that the misinformation we are spoon fed can be proven as inacurate?
Lies and manipulation does not make America safer.
Interfering with a legit investigation does not make us safer. Allowing Israel to kill a thousand innocent civilians and watching Arab countries fume does not make us safer. Double standard policies for Israel and then the rest of the Middle East doesn't make us safer, Profiling all Muslums is not fair or acceptable, making harsh rules for just those of Arabic discent causes animosity and doesn't make us safer.
The Bush administration has not made us safer...they have made America and every American citizen a bigger target.
