I’ll bet you thought I was finally over my man-crush on the Big Dick. Not true.
Imagine my surprise when today this headline pops up:
US Vice President Cheney indicted by Texas grand jury
Really? Indicted? Texas? I’m grabbing some popcorn.
A local Texas grand jury has indicted Vice President Cheney and former US Attorney General Alberto Gonzales on charges connected to alleged abuse of inmates in a private prison system…
To the undisclosed location!
Cheney is charged with engaging in an organized criminal activity related to the vice president’s investment in the Vanguard Group, which holds financial interests in the private prison companies running the federal detention centers.
Cheney? Organized Crime? You’re shittin’ me, right?
It charged that Cheney had a conflict of interest and was responsible for “at least misdemeanor assaults” on detainees.
We all know that Bush the Lesser is going to pardon everyone for everything come January. But it’s nice to see some people actually striving for justice.

So the main suspect (this time) in the anthrax attacks has died of an ‘apparent suicide’.
If this wasn’t an inside job, I don’t know nothin’.
I could go on and on, but what is there to say? I believe that Dick Cheney was directly involved in the planning and implementation of these traitorous attacks, with the purpose of terrorizing the American people into giving the government everything they wanted. I have a few excerpts below that may or my not support my case. I’ll let you decide.
On the night of the Sept. 11 attacks, the White House Medical Office dispensed Cipro to staff accompanying Vice President Dick Cheney as he was secreted off to the safety of Camp David, and told them it was “a precaution,” according to one person directly involved.
Between three and eight workers on loan from the U.S. Postal Service had access to that contaminated machine where a trace amount – anywhere from 20 to 500 spores – of anthrax was found… At least 8,000 spores must be inhaled into the lungs to get the most deadly form of anthrax. Substantially fewer spores can cause the highly treatable cutaneous form of anthrax if they enter a cut in the skin.
– Washington Post
The attacks were not entirely unexpected. I had been told soon after Sept. 11 to secure Cipro, the antidote to anthrax. The tip had come in a roundabout way from a high government official, and I immediately acted on it. I was carrying Cipro way before most people had ever heard of it.
– Richard Cohen
The FBI must not let the death of Bruce Ivins deter it from completing a full and thorough investigation of the attacks…The chance to prove Ivins’ guilt before a court of law has been lost, but the need for a thorough investigation and a full accounting to the American people remains…It appears increasingly likely that the only significant bioterrorism attack in history may have originated from right within the biodefense program of our own country…The implications for our understanding of the bioterrorism threat and for our entire biodefense strategy and enterprise are potentially profound.
– Alan Pearson
Well, they aren’t even trying to hide it any more. Via Glennzilla, here is the goodie bag that all atendees of the Democratic National Convention will recieve.
See anything funny about it? I notice that the frackin’ AT&T logo is the biggest damn thing on the bag. Even the letters for AT&T are in a larger font than anything else.
As the Hep Cats say today, WTF ?
The whole system is bought and paid for by corporations that have no interests beyond making the very rich richer. That is the reality we live in. We are a top-heavy imperialistic power that is listing dangerously. I seriously wouldn’t put it past our current leaders to come up with a way to suspend our democracy and try to install Bush as President for Life.
Start growing a garden. Hug your neighbors. Be nicer. I think we’re in for a hell of a ride.
Pretty Spartan around here lately, huh?
For various reasons ( S.A.D.?) I have been neglecting my posting duties. And don’t get too excited, I don’t have much.
Do take a moment and check out this site. Robert Wexler is seriously looking into beginning impeachment proceeding for the Big Dick himself. this is significant because Wexler is not a member of the Progressive Caucus. He is a middle of the road sort of guy, who probably doesn’t check in with the Great Orange Satan everyday.
What are you still here for? GO AND SIGN THE PETITION already!!!1!!!eleventy1!
That is all.
Israel attacks Iran. Iran fights back. The US levels much of Iran’s infrastructure. At least of generation of bona fide terrorists are spawned.
Lookie what the Big Dickhead had to say over the weekend.
Our government is so fucked up. If we attack Iran, look for the draft. That is their ace in the hole:
“But we have to have a draft to fight off the Muslim Hordes!”
Never mind the fact that with each new Iraq, Palestine, Lebanon, we create untold new enemies. It is almost like they want to incubate terrorists so the military industrial machine had fodder for its unlimited appetites.
Update: Fareed Zakaria breaks it down:
Iran has an economy the size of Finland’s and an annual defense budget of around $4.8 billion. It has not invaded a country since the late 18th century. The United States has a GDP that is 68 times larger and defense expenditures that are 110 times greater. Israel and every Arab country (except Syria and Iraq) are quietly or actively allied against Iran.
Am I the only one who has noticed how quiet the Big Dick has been recently? His belligerent bellicosity has been conspicuously absent from the recent General and Pony show.
Maybe the Heartless One has died because the thing that they put in place of his heart could only run for so long on the black oil that courses through his veins.
Or maybe he’s having a nonstop masturbatory orgy called ‘Planning for War with Iran’. Or maybe he’s just eating puppies. You know, Rumsfeld never did forgive him for winning the wiener.
See anything familiar in this picture? There, right in the lower right hand corner. It’s us. being dragged. By who, you ask? Is that manly man hunter Big Dick? Nope, its the Democrats. Dragging us to war in Iran.
I’m beginning to think that what we really need to do is to start a Progressive Party. Fuck the Democrats. they are as bad, if not worse than the Republicrooks. At least the Rs have vision and chuzpah. All the dems have is not on the table.
If the Netroots and and Progressives, along with the disillusioned Independents banded together, we could turn the political system upside down. I’m thinking Schecter/Hamsher, 2012. Or something. Juan Cole as the Sec of State, Glenn Greenwald as AG?
We could put dark horse Perrin in as SecDef, Schwartz as Secretary of Education, and me? Who’s in charge of the Drug War again?
So I’m an estimator. The nature of my work seems to be all or nothing. So lately I’ve been really busy and unable to post much. I apologize to my 2-3 readers for not bringing you daily blogs. When this work load passes, I’ll be better. I promise.
If you haven’t noticed, I’m somewhat fascinated by the Big Dick. I don’t know what it is, I’m just smitten. Maybe its his range. He’s something, alright.
Update: I didn’t put this genius piece of art together. In fact, I forgot where I got it (Nice journalistic integrity, huh?) It does have a watermark, however. I think that clears me of any legal jujus, right?
Update II: The genius in question!!!1!
