June 15, 2004, The President's "Inherent Power" Is Universal...

Remember the Iraq sovereignty transfer fraud, coming June 30th-- that we're supposed to believe means "we're out" so Dubya can claim victory, despite leaving 140,000 uniformed American targets behind? Well, part of the fraud seems to be coming against reality: Dubya is refusing to come clean on whether or if he will hand over Saddam Hussein himself to the interim Iraqi government.

Just as "democracy" means any government that the Iraqis want as long as it will grant us military bases and the President's friends favorable oil concessions, so "sovereignty" means decisions made by the Iraqi government as long as we like them. Saddam, you see, is a personal matter for the President: this President has never stopped blaming Saddam for George H.W. Bush's loss to Bill Clinton in '92-- a capital crime, as far as Bush is concerned. You see, if the Iraqis decide that a "truth and reconciliation" scheme is in order (as the South Africans did), and Saddam could get amnesty if he discloses the full extent of his crimes, even if this decision were ratified in a democratic plebicite-- our President would exercise his veto (the one he holds as "ruler of the universe"-- that's what our attorney general says he is, so it must be true... after all, our attorney general doesn't smoke, drink or dance and is afraid of calico cats).

So-- democracy-- from good old Tom Lehrer-- "they've got to be protected, all their rights respected, until someone we like can be elected". Sovereignty-- as in Humpty Dumpty-- in the Bush parlance-- it means what Bush says it does.

Bush has convicted Saddam already. Hence, Saddam is guilty, and must remain incarcerated for... ever. And Bush will be damned if the Iraqi people themselves might want to upset that particular olive cart. But the Iraqi people will control their own destiny, their government sovereign, etc., etc. and so forth... I DIDN'T GET A HARUMPH OUT OF YOU! You watch your ass.

You forgot that our AG doesn't gamble either, unless it's with the Constitution.

Bush speak is very difficult to understand. During his televised speach, he made a point of emphasizing that Iraqi's would have "full" soveriegnty.

It is bizzaro world in DC right now.

Oh, it isn't that hard. Remember, lies are truth, freedom is slavery, war is peace. Simple, no?

I understand that another 35 Iraqis were liberated this morning by way of a suicide bomber. I tell you, all we need is to liberate another million or so Iraqis and we could have a real democracy on our hands over there.

Wally (the REAL one):
"Ignorance is STRENGTH", "war is peace" and "freedom is slavery". I won't report you THIS time... but no Victory chocolate for you this month...
Everyone else: Just remember-- we are at war with Eurasia. We have ALWAYS been at war with Eurasia.

As long as these people continue their barcaric insistence on not granting us permanent military bases and oil concessions, the war of liberation will roll on...

Slightly OT--Did you hear the 9-11 Commission this morning? To me, the part THAT KILLED was the alleged Cheney-Bush conversation where Bush authorized the engagement (translation: shoot down) of civilian airliners-- and there is clear evidence Cheney gave that order. HOWEVER-- other than the UNSWORN word of Bush and Cheney themselves ("vaguely recalled" by Condi Rice) there is NO OTHER EVIDENCE THAT THE CALL TOOK PLACE (Lynn Cheney for example, sitting right there, did NOT remember it). That means (1) the PResident and Vice-President-- sworn or not-- just lied to a Commission THEY AUTHORIZED, but (2) it means the Vice-President of the US gave an illegal order to SHOOT DOWN AMERICAN CIVILIAN AIRLINERS (only the President himself-- then engaged in the business of a nation hearing a story about a goat in a Florida classroom-- could give that order.)

Want to hear a real travesty? How is it that Monte Hoffman wasn't picked to go into the house on Last Comic Standing. Talk about KILLING. He KILLED.

Bush fought that commission's formation. You think he wouldn't lie to that commission, or Cheney wouldn't? Why do you think they made it clear that no notes could be taken, no...ah. We all know what is going on. No need to waste bandwidth saying it.

Will work make us free? Cause I work a lot, and I should have a lot of freedom in the bank sometime down the line.

I am in a moral quandry.
My friend searches for cheating spouse on google to screen potential roommates.
He found , but did not visit.
I, on the other hand, searched for detective and found
I went there and found that cheating wife were easier to find than on google.
Should I tell him that his potential roommate is a detective ?
