A NON-BOXING, “GET REAL” SPIEL
Having taken the time to read all four million words in the 26 volumes thatcomprise the Warren Commission hearings, I came across this quote fromCommission member, and former CIA Director Allan Dulles, this in a Top Secretsession. Americans dont read. The historians read for therecord, but the masses dont. Asa student of U.S. history, I also remember reading about President HarryTruman saying, the buck stops here!
KENNEDY ADMITTED THE BAY OF PIGS FIASCO!
In 1962, when the CIA screwed up in Cubas Bay of Pigsinvasion, an extremely embarrassed President Kennedy went before theAmerican public on live television and accepted responsibility. When PresidentNixon, a man that I considered a great leader, in the end, even he tookresponsibility for Watergate, and the cover up afterwards that destroyed hisadministration.
WHERE AM I WRONG IN THESE CHARGES?
Then, we have the case of President George Bush, who told us Americansemphatically that there were Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq.That Iraq had purchased material from Niger that facilitated the building ofthese weapons, and that Saddam Hussein was sharing the sack with AlQaida. Wait, Im not done with the quotes of this great man, he also saidhe was going to hunt Osama Bin Laden down like a dog! He can run, buthe cant hide, said the U.S. President four, yes, four years ago! Itis almost accepted as fact that Osama, whose family has close business ties toBush, and his father, that he is in Pakistan tanning and planning his nextattack.
BUSH WANTS PANEL FOR NEW ORLEANS SLOW RESPONSE
All of these Presidential muck ups have been followed with investigations bypanels associated with government oversight, and or Congress itself. Most havebeen nothing more than pabulum for the American people to swallow on the eveningnews. When the 9-11 Commission was formed, it was only because thefamilies of the victims got a fire going on the web. The attention they drewbrought in the compromised mainstream media. If George Bush had his way, there would have been no 9-11 Commission. Andhe stated so publicly.
COMMISSION SAYS CIA, BUSH, & UNCLE TOM LIED!
Among other things, the 9-11 Commission said the CIA was at fault, thePresident was wrong, that there were NO WMDs and NO ties to Al Qaida, none!Even the acknowledged Uncle Tom of the White House, Colin Powell, hewent so far as to show us pictures of mobile chemical labs, that turnedout to be fabricated! The photos were made/created to convince you the Americanpeople, and the United Nations that Iraq had WMDs in transit! And Jim Crow,AKA Donald Dumsfeld, he said, we know exactly where they (WMDS)are.
IF OUR TROOPS ARE HEROS, SO ARE THE IRAGIS!
Now in a rational world, one would think that somebody would be heldaccountable for all of this. After all, the United States had invaded a nationon false pretenses. And in the process we killed many of its innocent people,and have paid a tremendous price both in American lives and dollars. And yet, tothis date, nobody has accepted a scintilla of responsibility on any of thesematters. As for the Iraqi military men that weve killed, as historytells us now, they were only protecting their homeland against an unwarrantedattack from a nation they had never harmed in the United States. Where am I wrong here?
NOT PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN WHEN ABROAD!
George Bush, the leader that he isnt, he never went before the Americanpeople and said, I was wrong when I (or my people) told you Iraq had WMDs,ties to Al Qaida, mobile labs, purchased uranium from Niger, etc. But neveronce did this man, who will go down in history as the biggest divider in thehistory of the office, admit such. As an American who travels abroad, I can tellyou the world, almost as a whole is disgusted with our President. Andunfortunately, this is brought to bear on American tourists.
SLAVERY, ALIVE & WELL IN NEW ORLEANS!
Can you imagine an American family household income of less than $8,000 ayear? OK, multiply that by 150,000, and you have a good portion of the citizenryof New Orleans living under the poverty line. How could people be thisdisadvantaged, and living in a modern American city in 2005? Its simple,theyre black and George Bush, and those before him too, could really careless. Over the weekend, Bush ordered the U.S. flag at half-mast for a deceased U.S.Supreme Court Justice. Only later did he add the honor to victims of HurricaneKatrina, and this was only after somebody threw it in the WhiteHouses face!
DID YOU KNOW THE LEVY WORK WAS PORK?
In the past few days, President Bush has said, this isnt the time topoint fingers. I guess he was talking about the reported $400 million hiscrew took from the Army Corp of Engineers, and diverted instead to thewar in Iraq, which was based on lies and mistruths. Millions of dollars for the levy went to the war that was based onfiction. And before you say this is a political rant, it isnt. This is astatement of reality based on facts.
BACK TO THE FIRST PARAGRAPH FOLKS I
Like Allan Dulles, the top spy in this country for decades said, Americansdont read. I hate to say it, but the majority of you get your information(or disinformation) from TV news. And for the simpleminded that think SeanHannity is anything less than an *sshole with a white wing agenda, go backto Friday night Fox and the spanking Sheppard Smith and Geraldo Rivera gavehim on air, while they were reporting the inhumane treatment of blacks at theconvention center. For that one act of insensitivity, Hannity should be *itch slapped, and then fired!
BACK TO THE FIRST PARAGRAPH FOLKS II
The head of the FEMAs Michael Brown slipped up big time Friday whenhe told CNNs Paula Zahn as of Thursday, the Federal Governmentdidnt even know of the (20,000!) people at the Convention Center. So, ifthis is the case, and Ive got the video, where does the buck stop? When I waswith the San Francisco Police Dept., it stopped at the Chiefs desk.When I worked for a corporation, it stopped with the CEO. In prioradministrations, Ive illustrated how Presidents have stepped up and acceptedresponsibility. In closing, in one of those intimate chats the Presidentadmittedly has with the higher power, God needs to tell him, littleGeorgie my son, the buck stops with you!
