If Of The Week

1 comment January 3rd, 2008at 11:10pm Posted by Eli

Independent Straight-Talking Maverick John McCain (with his BFF Joe Lieberman standing proudly behind him) responding to a question about Dubya keeping troops in Iraq for the next 50 years:

Make it a hundred. We’ve been in South Korea… we’ve been in Japan for 60 years. We’ve been in South Korea 50 years or so. That would be fine with me. As long as Americans… are not being injured or harmed or wounded or killed. That’s fine with me, I hope that would be fine with you, if we maintain a presence in a very volatile part of the world where Al Queada is training and equipping and recruiting and motivating people every single day.

Okay, so technically it’s an As Long As rather than an If, but it amounts to the same thing.

John, if Americans weren’t being wounded or killed, you wouldn’t have gotten that question in the first place. I can just as easily say that as long as Republicans don’t lie, cheat, steal, and generally make a mockery of American laws and values, I would be fine with keeping them in the White House for the next hundred years.

    Tired of both parties sending e-mails that we should send money for campaign contributions. Our opinions are not read, our questions not answered, and our contributions not accounted. Corporate America reigns under the auspice of Bush/Cheney who have fed off American workers, American investors, and have denigrated American citizens since 1940 when Prescott used his Senate position to sell American resources to the Nazi government, while we were at war. The president assigns the chief of FCC, the president appointed the failing Diebold corporation the contract to “create” voting machines, and there is no longer even a semblance of Democracy in the former United, and now Untied, States. I doubt that any one person or collection of citizens could repair the damage done by the totalitarian greed, misrepresentation , abuse of office, without first exposing the criminal activities of the “first family” ; third generation of political abusers and moral depredation. Our senators and our congresspersons have not seen it in their best interest to do so. One thousand people represent three million citizens in our Republic, and are able to vote according to their own best interest , supposedly on “our behalf”, and in the past eight years, it has been according to the benefit of one-percent to glean more money than they could use in their lifetime, been called a “mandate” by the infestation of the White House; doing what they want with total disregard of the opinions of the subjugated minority and the general welfare of American citizens. American law is for Ken Starr, who investigated Hillary Clinton for a $100,000 investment that cost the American taxpayers over two million dollars to discover it was an honest investment. The investigation of Monica Lewinsky, 22 years old who saved her dress for proof, bragged to her girlfriends, and brought on a “sex scandal” that lasted for two years of front page news? Deregulation of environmental statutes, deregulation of financial intitutions, deregulation of energy policies, was among the first 849 issues that GW Bush changed as commander-in-chief before he personally had his Arab emirate family associates out of the United States following 9/11, eight months after he was sworn into office.Just a reminder.
