Vice President Snears At Enlisted Men/Women, You and I

Ya know, I hate this guy! He can lie straight to your face and not bat an eye lash. He can spew fabrications without so much as a twitch, and I don’t think he has a conscience at all. How else do you explain his ability to sleep at night. I think he and bush must be psychopaths with their disconnection from our daily reality. From the dying they have caused, from the genocide they inspired, from the graft and greed they exemplify.

I was reading through Common Dreams.org and came across this piece about Cheney. Seems he was being his usual moronic self and was commenting on our troops in the field. For all he demands of them, it seems he has no respect for them. One paragraph in particular was very telling I thought:

What’s your point, Mr. Vice President? That because they volunteered to serve our country in uniform it’s okay to squander their lives in a war of choice, your choice and your president’s, and that it somehow matters less than if they’d been dragooned into service by press gangs or a draft like the one you dodged with five deferments during the Vietnam War because, you said, you had “better things to do”?

Yes, answer the question you hunk of “everything good about America” boy you! NOT! What’s that saying? “You can’t live with them and you just can’t shoot them?” or something to that effect. I’ll tell you, when the President and Vice President show such little regard for those serving THEM it just makes me hopping mad! How dare they? These ner-do-well incompetent fools have, from the beginning, shirked duty to country and office, lied, stolen, taken kickbacks, and been let off easy. Look at bush’s military record, he didn’t show up for what 2 years? And why hasn’t congress done anything? Just how much was Pelosi paid to keep Impeachment off the table?

Recently this YouTube interview with Cheney came out. It is typical of the bush administration and how they feel about Citizens in the United States in general:

But back to the article I read in CommonDreams.org:

Shame on Them and Shame on Us
by Joseph L. Galloway

This week, the Iraq war claimed its 4,000th American killed in action, but that sad and tragic milestone came as the war seems to have slipped off the evening news, off the front pages and from the minds of the American people.

I suppose this benign neglect of so important and damaging an event is combat fatigue on the part of the public. No doubt the White House is happy to see Iraq shoved to a back burner, just as all three presidential candidates are relieved to talk about something else, anything else, but their half-baked ideas about the war.

Shame on them, and shame on us, for such callous indifference to the service, sacrifice and suffering of the families of the dead, wounded and injured troops who’ve given so much for so little in return.

I agree, somehow we aren’t doing enough, we aren’t getting through to those in authority and making ourselves heard. Our young men and women are dying in a war that isn’t for American Freedom, it isn’t to defend US, and it is based on lies. Where is our outrage at this administration? Have we lost the Soul of us? Is it the Kool-Aid they are passing out for free? And those that don’t die are horribly maimed either mentally or physically. And they are NOT getting the care they should from the very government they served so well!

Now, think of all the good we could do in THIS country if we took the money allocated for the Iraq War, (an undeclared war to this day!) and used it to help the economy HERE, or Healthcare, Medicare, Education, and Social Security. We are talking about hundreds of billions of dollars here. Instead we sit back and allow these war criminals to continue business as usual. I’m disgusted with all of us! And that includes myself for not doing enough apparently.

If America is ever to be what she Was, we need to take to the streets and demand reparation from these criminals. We need to see them prosecuted for the War Crimes, lies, etc. that they have committed. And they need to be held responsible for the death and maimings of all our troops they sent in to fight a war of THEIR desire. For surely the evidence is overwhelming.

May history tell of these despots exactly the truth, that they are inept, bungling, psychopaths, war criminals, despised by 90% of the population. The only ones who seem to like them are those they own outright.
