We Are Still Allowing. . .

It Is Continuing To Get Worse - Because We Keep Allowing It To
by The Old Hippie Because This Is Simply Insane

CAFTA Passed, Rove is not in prison, much less even on trial, an ultra-right wing sycophant is headed toward the Supreme Court, whom can't seem to remember he was a member of the Federalist Society, open arrogant lies continue to go un-punished, the obvious and smirkingly corporatist take over of "our" government is allowed to worsen, even beyond what it has already reached, known and proven war crimes committed "in our names" go un-punished, known and proven torture of children in "our" prisons continue to be un-punished, not to mention the torture and rape of these children and the other adults in these prisons, that "our" own Pentagon has stated on the public record as having been swept up in broad sweeps of arrests, and that possibly 60% to 70% of these people are most likely innocent of any crimes, but yet most are still there, without charges filed against them - tortured, raped, murdered. . .  And it all remains un-punished, And it all continues - Because "We," Americans continue to allow it. . .

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = 

If you deny any of this is true, then (unapologetically) fuck you.  You are either a complete idiot, a coward, or part of them, and in any way you look at it - It is this "continued allowing" that is America's biggest problem.

If you are still with me, then here are a few current items you may find of interest. . .

 1.  Senate Probe of Prewar Intelligence Stalls

 2.  CAFTA: Democracy Sold Out

 3.  Truth Takes a Spin

 4.  A US District Judge Defends the Honor of the Judicial Wing

"We did not need to use a secret military tribunal, detain the defendant indefinitely as an enemy combatant or deny the defendant the right to counsel," he said.  "The message to the world from today's sentencing is that our courts have not abandoned our commitment to the ideals that set our nation apart."

He added that the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks have made Americans realize they are vulnerable to terrorism and that some believe "this threat renders our Constitution obsolete ... If that view is allowed to prevail, the terrorists will have won."

 5.  A National Guardsman Testifying at a Hearing for U.S. Soldiers. . .

. . .accused of killing an Iraq general said he saw classified U.S. personnel beat prisoners with a sledgehammer handle and mock the general's death, according to a transcript.

 6.  Clinton Angers Left With Call for Unity

 7.  Toxic Elements Found in Infants' Cord Blood

In a benchmark study released today, researchers found an average of 200 industrial compounds, pollutants and other chemicals in the umbilical cord blood of newborns, including seven dangerous pesticides — some banned in the United States more than 30 years ago.  The report, Body Burden — The Pollution in Newborns, by the Washington, D.C.-based Environmental Working Group, detected 287 chemicals in the umbilical cord blood of 10 newborns.  Of those chemicals, 76 cause cancer in humans or animals, 94 are toxic to the brain and nervous system and 79 cause birth defects or abnormal development in animal tests.

 8.  And For Those Whom Have Forgotten History. . .

"The national government will maintain and defend the foundations on which the power of our nation rests.  It will offer strong protection to Christianity as the very basis of our collective morality.  Today Christians stand at the head of our country.  We want to fill our culture again with the Christian spirit.  We want to burn out all the recent immoral developments in literature, in the theatre, and in the press — in short, we want to burn out the poison of immorality which has entered into our whole life and culture as a result of LIBERAL excess during the past years."
