Evil Empire

OK, the word is in from the rest of the world: UN Equates Gitmo to Torture. It’s pretty clear to the rest of the world, and its pretty clear to me and any other US citizen that cares to put some thought into it:

The US has become a monster that has no qualms about torturing people.

Very sad, and very scary.

White House spokesman Scott McClellan said, "These are dangerous terrorists that we're talking about that are there,"

Listen Mr. McClellan what we are talking about here is TORTURE!!! There is no justification for torture, dangerous criminals can be safely detained without torture, we do it all the time. Get that straight, or are you just a pawn of the White House torturers?

Do I need to remind you of the leaders in the past that condoned and used torture? You can't hide the fact that we are talking about torture.


Wise up Mr. McClellan. Do you really want to be associated with a gang of criminals? We are not the country that we have been brainwashed to believe we are.

History always takes it toll on those that practice evil atrocities.

So it Goes...

Well folks being on lookout duty can be really dismal sometimes, but somebody has to do it or we might miss the freight train heading down on us at 100 mph.

OK, lets take stock. We have a war in Iraq that doesn’t seem to be getting any closer to any kind of victory. Since democracy is defined as rule by the people, the fact that the current governmental system was imposed on the Iraqi people, it means by definition, that it is not a democracy. So it goes...

Bush declared mission accomplished just after Baghdad was taken. Many people think it was a bit premature, but take Bush at his word on this. He and his cronies in the oil business have a vested interest in keeping that piece of paper we call the dollar afloat. Trust me, that is all they are interested in, securing their wealth and power. When Baghdad fell, so did the Saddam’s plan to sell his oil in Euros.
So it goes...

Once counties can buy their oil with Euros they won’t need to accumulate dollars and the dollar will no longer be the world currency. That takes a lot of power away from Bush & Co. So their mission was accomplished long ago, anything else has been gravy, and their has been a lot of gravy, especially if you are on the gravy train. So it goes...

Now that Iran is planning to sell oil for Euros starting at the end of March can anybody guess what will happen? So it goes...

Recently we have the reports of obscene oil company profits. The land of the free is the only country on the plant where the oil resources are privately owned, everywhere else they are the property of the people. So it goes...

If you take the profits reported by Royal Dutch Shell of $22.94 billion for 2005 and the profits from Exxon Mobil of 36.1 billion, it totals up to over 59 billion dollars in profit. Of course that is peanuts compared to what the US government spends, it only takes them 3 weeks to spend 59 billion dollars. So it goes...

A billion seconds ago it was 1959.

A billion minutes ago was the time of Christ.

A billion hours ago our ancestors were living in the Stone Age.

A billion days ago no one walked on earth.

A billion dollars ago was only 8 hours and 20 minutes, at the rate our government spends it.

So it goes...
