Why Bush talks about freedom so much: He doesn't have any!
By Jane Stillwater http://jpstillwater.blogspot.com
It was Sunday. My daughter and I had made plans to go up to Tilden Park and walk in the woods but we were lazy and running late and didn't get to it until after dark. We ended up walking around Jewel Lake in the moonlight. It was magical.
Can you imagine poor sorry George Bush doing something like that?
First, he would have had to schedule it months in advance. Then he'd have to have the whole region scouted out by his secret police.
Park officials would have to be notified.
The bullet-proof limo would have to be trotted out.
The path around Jewel Lake would have to be paved.
In the end, 800 policemen and 2,000 troops would have to accompany him.
No wonder Bush always talks about Freedom! He mentioned Freedom 26 times in his inaugural speech. But between me and George Bush, which one of us do you think is most free?
Bush wanted that White house job so badly that he was willing to commit election fraud TWICE to get it. And now he's stuck with it, trapped as surely as Saddam Hussein in his spider hole. Do I feel sorry for him?
From CLG News: Gore Vidal on Bush's Inaugural Address: "The Most Un-American Speech I've Ever Heard" (democracynow.org) "We take a look at President [sic] Bush's inaugural address with Gore, Vidal, one of America's most respected writers and thinkers and the author of more than 20 novels and 5 plays. Vidal says, 'If the United States does go abroad to slay dragons in the name of freedom, liberty and so on, she could become dictatress of the world, but in the process she would lose her soul.'" http://www.legitgov.org/shortnews_0105.html
From Jennifer Stone: What Bush calls "Freedom" is actually called corporate fuedalism: Americans now have the Freedom to go homeless and sleep under a bridge.
From the San Francisco Chronicle: GOP RHETORIC:
Bush puts his own spin on 'freedom'. "Yes, (he means) freedom to pursue democracy," Lakoff said. "But what constitutes democracy? He's saying, 'This is freedom to pursue money.' " [To the GOP, money -- not God or morals or true freedom or happy Americans -- is everything.]
From Angela: The Case of Haiti How Bush Brings Freedom to the World On January 14, eyewitnesses say Haitian police murdered Abdias Jean, journalist for Miami radio station WKAT, after he witnessed police execution of two or more young boys in such a police operation in the Port au Prince neighborhood, Village de Dieu. http://counterpunch.org/reeves01292005.html
From Peter: Japan Press Weekly editorial -- No one can secure "freedom" by destroying peace http://www.japan-press.co.jp/2416/bush.html

From Chuck W: PS can you explain to me why in the 1 hour and fifteen minutes (which is almost more time than it takes for Dick Cheney to make an entire town disappear off the face of the earth if he felt like it dude) between the time the first plane left Logan airport at 730 am on Sept 11, 2001 and the time it smashed into the WTC at 845 am (on the same date), WE HAVE NO RECORD OF ONE SINGLE AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLER CALLING IN A MISSING AIRLINER NOR DO WE SEE WHERE A SINGLE AMERICAN FIGHTER JET WAS SENT UP TO PATROL THE SKIES ABOVE DC AND THE BIG APPLE, seeing as how everyone who was anyone in the Bush admin on or about the aforementioned date had been warned that OBL (that's Osama bin Laden for the folks in your tribe) was looking to use airliners to attack the US ??
From Susan: A quote from Lau Tsu, 2,500 years ago:
A great nation is like a great man: When he makes a mistake, he realizes it. Having realized it, he admits it. Having admitted it, he corrects it. He considers those who point out his faults as his most benevolent teachers. He thinks of his enemy as the shadow that he himself casts.
From Nigel: Finally someone has come out with A 100% bi-partisan political bumpersticker. The hottest selling bumper sticker comes from New York State: "2008 - RUN HILLARY RUN". Democrats put it on the rear bumper. Republicans put it on the front bumper.
Election fraud is STILL the issue: Unfortunately, my prediction came true, Bush DID jimmy the Diebold and there IS endless war.
