Serial Killers

So much of what's going on in politics right now strikes me as just 'going through the motions.' I have this terrible feeling of impending doom. So much so, that I haven't been blogging. Still reading and listening but not sharing my thoughts until now. I can't imagine that BushCo would go to all this trouble to change the entire government, amass all the "unitary executive" power, subjugate the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights and then just walk away.

I don't understand how McCain, being the complete liar-dud-loser he is, can still be be competitive in the fall, in spite of all the help from the MSM. We already know the depth and breadth of the horrific changes this criminal administration has made: NSPD-51, the "detainment camps," the nearly completely corrupt DOJ, the illegal wiretapping; you know the list goes on and on. I repeat: Why go to all that trouble and then just walk away?

Karl Rove is a top level advisor to McCain. Is it a coincidence the "architect" of the GOP election theft is now on the team? How about the complicit congress? Not to mention the hackable voting machines still in use in most of the 50 states. C'mon people this is a big set-up. And I have no idea what to do about it. How about you?

I'd be amazed if this country doesn't tear itself apart in the next 10 years. I really don't think that the country will allow itself to be ruled by a dictatorial center, and there are ambitious men (like Ahnold) waiting for an excuse to secede.

They will do so, very soon.

Sense of impending doom? IF it's not politics or the economy, it'll be the environment, or all three. Looking ahead through my smog colored glasses, I don't know how folks can keep deciding on having children. Is it simply accepting the consequences of one's actions and hoping for the best, or utter disregard for the lives they're setting themselves and their kids up for, or just plain dumb? Beats me.

Yup, all your questions and more. Nothing would surprise me except the American Citizenry finally having enough of it all and rising up. But I'm not holding my breath.

I'm afraid the revolutionary spirit has been bred out, dumbed down, inundated by consumerism and me-me-me-ism. I have no kids only rescued animals.

Hi Hope,

I know the feeling of being burned out by the constant negative news we hear.

But I also think that the revolutionary spirit is not dead, just dormant.

"...whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive... it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

...mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."


There are those who will be complacent, but there are others who will lead. We have to seek them out or become them.

Thanks so much Carl. I guess one of the reasons I say what is is I'm feeling is because it brings out the the optimism left (all puns intended)in the world. I need the steel of other progressives to buoy my flagging spirit. Thanks for the hand up.

"... Is it reasonable; is it really a matter of common sense
to assume that leaders who are willing to:

-abuse signing statements,
-withhold information from Congress,
-make secret decisions,
-lie to the American public,
-use fake evidence to justify a preemptive war,
-torture prisoners,
-tap people's phones,
-open their mail and email,
-break into their houses,
-and now simply ignore Congress altogether

leaders with, currently, a 29 percent approval rating
- will surely say, come 2008,
"The decision rests in the hands of the people.
Maythe votes be fairly counted"? -- Naomi Wolf

I don't know when Ms. Wolf wrote this, but since then it has come out that 1)the Red Cross told Bush over a year ago that 'the highest administration officials' were in jeopardy of becoming war crimes defendants and 2)This statement emerged from Gen. Antonio Taguba, "There is no longer any doubt as to whether the current administration has committed war crimes. The only question that remains to be answered is whether those who ordered the use of torture will be held to account."

My feeling is that fear of the legal consequences would make Bush and co-conspirators more likely to hold onto power, so he can announce to the world (finger poised over 'the button') "Oh yeah, try and come and get me."

As per usual, I hope I'm wrong.

Me too SBT yet I can't shake the same fears. Funny how it turned out--I was never afraid of what they wanted me to be afraid of, but rather I fear who they turned out to be.

I swear, you guys get me through it.
