How much more?

How much more do we need to know about the criminal, immoral, dishonest enterprise that is the Bush/Cheney administration? Now we learn that Bush deliberately leaked classified information for purely political reasons. I guess we can add that to the long list of impeachable offenses of which he and Cheney are obviously guilty. Does anyone care? Doesn't seem like it. Patrick Fitzgerald is said to have evidence of a conspiracy in the White House to out Valerie Plame. If he has he doesn't seem to be very interested in doing anything about it (I keep hoping that he is going to strike big time but so far nothing other than Libby). How many impeachable offenses does it take to get the Republicans to screw in a light bulb (in their small, smooth brains)?

And oh, yes, in spite of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, things continue to go well in Iraq. We are making "progress," and if things aren't going too well it is all the fault of the Iraqis themselves. They just can't get their act together. What would you expect from a bunch of dumb Arabs who had a high civilization when we were still trying to invent fire? If they were so smart why didn't they invent pants? I just don't understand why a nation that was never really a nation in the first place, and has now been completely destroyed and occupied against its will, has no viable infrastructure, rampant unemployment, few medical facilities, a serious brain drain, and who knows what all else, can't just snap to when told to do so by someone as important as Condi Rice? What's with these losers anyway?

Condi admitted that we have made tactical mistakes, perhaps thousands of them, in Iraq. Rumsfeld, befuddled as usual, doesn't know what she is talking about. He doesn't know of any mistakes. The fact that many, if not all of our major generals consider him an abject failure (although for obvious reasons most of them can't really speak out publicly) doesn't faze either him or the dimwit so-called Commander in Chief. As Rummy's close friend, Dick the Slimy, lives in a galaxy far away, he doesn't seem to be very interested (after all, it takes a hell of lot of time just counting all your money when you've got a sweet racket like his).

The House and Senate are said to be close to agreeing on a new Immigration Bill. All of this after just a few hours of discussion (just pass something, for god's sake, and get this monkey off our backs). This bill, if it actually does get passed, will almost certainly be virtually useless, unenforceable, and a complete travesty. But as that is what will be intended I guess from their point of view it will be a success (after all, the only point of this whole effort is to insure cheap labor for the corporations that control both our country and the world).

Yes, things are going just swimmingly here in the good old U. S. of A. Only if you are a multi billionaire, that is. The American dream is not only dead, it is putrefying. Five dollars and fifteen cents an hour is a generous wage. Think of all those starving Africans and others that would be happy to get such luxury. People here just never seem to be satisfied. Our local Democrats want a billboard that will say "Enough is Enough, vote Democratic." I'm holding out for "Die Republican Scum."

Cheers and best wishes. Spring is about to be sprung.
