Excuse me? “Bush isn’t hell bent on destroying “everyone’s rights”?? Just the rights of all who oppose him. Those can be dangerous terrorists - or just people like ourselves who don’t like what he’s doing. He’s already SUSPENDED HABEAS CORPUS fer chrissakes.
Bush doesn’t even need a reason to arrest you anymore, don’t you get it, moron? You can disappear into one of those secret prisons and because of “Homeland security” issues his family can’t challenge what the government is doing!!
Believe me if the House and Senate stay Republican after the next election American citizens will start disappearing into those secret prisons next.
Forget Hitler this guy is Joe Stalin all over again.

To maximize our home security we hired a sentry named George. When told by the local police that some bad guys had been seen casing our house, George responded by taking a month vacation. Then the bad guys hit our house, completely destroying it along with 3000 of our children. Naturally, we were not happy about this especially when we discovered that our sentry was finally found attending a local kindergarten and had sat dazed for about seven minutes when told about what had happened. George, being a man of resolve, retaliated against the bad guys by punching one of our neighbors in the nose even though the neighbor had no connection to the bad guys. When we threatened to replace him with a sentry who had a plan, George warned us that any other sentry would not do as good a job protecting our house but would only be an invitation for more hits. Fearfully, we took his advice.
Sentry George is still on the job.

Chaseme, do the nice men in white coats know you are out of your room and have access to a computer?

I don’t think the damage that Bush has done will really ever clear up.

This adminsitrations entire case rest on co-operation from those who believe Osama had a hand in the 9/11 attacks. Marvin Bush was head of security for the WTCs. Bush’s uncle is head of United Airlines. Television is the American citizen’s life-line.
The bush’s are the rulers of all future time, as long as they are not challenged for the atrocities of 9/11. As long as americans believe Osama had a hand in those atrocities. Who in the American socitey could ever stand against those who chose to dominate.
The bush’s will win the war against the Americans, in spite of being on the verge of defeat, for they are building the greatest land-energy barrier that has ever existed. With it, they shall ensure that they will win—or no one will win!
They will teach those moralistic scum of the American society to prate about man’s rights and the freedom of the spirit. They will Blast you all!
This is how I see it! I see an aristocratic hierarchy and a swarm of beast-men slaves. “Beast-men slaves=depersonalized American citizens. I also see coup in the future if a Democrat-Clinton, is elected President.
With those beast-men slave, Haliburton will run the military. They will get the contract to guard the boarders and they will carry out the coup. Remember, you read it here first!

Have faith in your fellow Americans… ah, if only they were in charge. Sadly their vote, their will and their wallets were looted. So who will have each to pay for eight years of recklessness? Those at the end of our guns?

Todd comment #23008
Yes, very ingnorant. This administration has used fear to brainwash many into thinking we are all in grave danger. Well, hell, you are always in danger. Life is dangerous. Someone could break into your house and murder you and they could be a red blooded American. America is a violent society.
Do you realize that there was probably more danger before 911 and no one used fear then? Why now? 911 was horrible, but it did not change anything for the terroists. They were out there before and still now after 911.
Trying to wipe out terrorists is like trying to wipe out crime in America, lofty goal, but impossible. As long as there are people there will be crime and terrorists. We can impact, slow down, predict and be more secure in our approach to terror but complete saftey is another fals promise that winning the war in Iraq will not deliver.
Bush keeps telling you they hate Americans and want to kill uss because we are free. If you watch any news from outside the Unites states you will realize that this is a pile of shit. The main reason they hate us is because of our middle east policy(isreal) and our foreign policy in general. (the admin. want you to think they hate us for our freedom as hating us for our foreign policy is hard to sell)
The USA wants to control parts or all of the world and uses its size and money to do so. We want a big chunk of control of the middle east so we can have access to oil. From what I have read, many feel we are the imperialists trying to take over the world. (you will not get that on CBS, NBC or ABC)
All bush is doing is “using” 911 to scare Americans so he can run his entire presidency as a war time president. (this gives him more unilateral power)
The fact that anyone who opposes this boob and his admin. is labeled non-patriotic or aiding the terroirst should be clear evidence that our rights are being trampled on.
Unfortunately, Bush’s aids(not him) were clever enough to use religion as thie primary tool to get support for Bush.
Bush is using religion as an outline for all his actions and decisions. Hmm, sounds just like the terrorists who use Islam as the reason for all their actions.
The bottom line, the current admin. has noting, I mean nothing to hang their policital hat on other than FEAR, sept. 11th and the Iraq war they try tirelessly to link to Sept. 11th 2001.
On other issues(the economy, healthcare, US Boreders…....)the current administratin has ignored because it is terror and war that they want to focus on. It is easier to sell.
We are being sold, you just do not know it.

I think the “plug up the oil to raise prices” premise is a joke personally. The checks and balances of democracy are going to remain in place and remain healthy, have some faith in your fellow Americans. Like I say, in two years a new president can do a lot of healing by simply not being Bush. How about these tickets in ‘08…Dean/Kucinich for dems and Cheney/Buchanan for the reps?

Freedom costs. It cannot afford two more years of megalomania. Wont anyone who works with the mentally disordered grow patriarch balls and help this man?

Todd, you ignorant slut. America won’t be free for long if we let this administration spy on us without a FISA warrant. A democracy is first and formost a country of laws. Are we cowards to throw away our freedoms so cheaply because people like you are afraid of a few loose cannons? There is no reason for him not to get a warrant if he is really spying on terrorists and not political opponents. A real president would have caught and tried Osama Bin Laden before going after a country that never attacked us and never would have. Hussein was a secular monster who cowered before the USA and took our money and weapons and shook hands with Don Rumsfeld, a fickle friend indeed. For 12 years after the Gulf War he was beaten down by our sanctions and our policing of his borders.
The only reason to go into Iraq was for the oil—not to produce it, but to plug it up and justify price gouging on gas.

God, talk about boo fucking hoo. Give me a break. It’s all W’s fault. Get on with your lives, it’s only two more years for Christ’s sake. How about a cartoon that presses Muslims to condemn the radical elements within their faith. Bush is not Hitler, America is free, always will be and Bush is not hell bent on destroying everyon’e rights.
