Can You Believe the Gall of This Jerk?


"There's an enemy that lurks and plots and plans and wants to hurt America again. So you bet we will aggressively pursue them but we will do so under the law.
We do not torture."
-George W. Bush

No we let other folks do our torture for us.

Actually, the Bush administration encourages lesser ranking American soldiers to do whatever they wish to the enemy, especially with detainees.
If they get caught they are on their own, though.

that's a little 'talking out of the other side of the mouth' again...

KZ...a story i'm sure you want to try to pick up on...I heard it on the vine that there's a minister in a church someplace who spoke out against Bushco...publicly..., and now has the IRS on his ass...this was supposed to take place during the campaign when ANY pastor/minister/potentate endorsed from the pulpit...it's a violation of law...

heard anything on that?

Karen Zipdrive said...

Doggo- yeah, I've heard about that story a lot lately.
No news value to me though.
I thought it was common practice for any president in either party to use an IRS audit as his chief "getting even" tool.
I think BushCo has been so busy fucking their enemies over in newer, more creative ways that it's taken them 5 years to get around to the IRS Audit scam.
Either that, or Rove is so busy trying to maintain his anal virginity, Bush came up with the oldest IRS trick in the book all on his own.
For the Bush crowd, it's an almost primative weapon.

we do not torture. well, um, we USUALLY do not torture. wait, that's not right...we do not torture unless it's absolutely necessary. no, still not quite right.

"YER GODDAM RIGHT WE TORTURE AND WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU GONNA DO ABOUT IT? I GOT A MANDATE!"

Everyday that ass is in office is torture to me. Where are my Geneva Conference Reps?

Karen Zipdrive said...

Geneva is in Switzerland.
Switzerland is near France.
America does not like France because they wouldn't help us shove democracy down Iraq's throats or kill them trying.
Ergo: The Geneva Conventions do not count because the Swiss are almost French, and the French hate America because they are stupid.

BushCo may have gone after one preacher but how are they going to try to ruin the entire United Methodist Church - of which W is a member? On Oct 17th the Methodists passed a resolution calling on the United States to withdraw its troops from the country.

The Methodist Board of Church and Society said:
"As people of faith, we raise our voice in protest against the tragedy of the unjust war in Iraq," the resolution stated. "We urge the United States government to develop and implement a plan for the withdrawal of its troops. The U.S. invasion has set in motion a sequence of events which may plunge Iraq into civil war."

Criticizing a war "waged on false premises," the resolution went on to state, "Thousands of lives have been lost and hundreds of billions of dollars wasted in a war the United States initiated and should never have fought. ...We grieve for all those whose lives have been lost or destroyed in this needless and avoidable tragedy. Military families have suffered undue hardship from prolonged troop rotations in Iraq and loss of loved ones. It is time to bring them home."

This is priceless. But wait, there's more right from the UMC:

"In a separate resolution, the board called on Congress to create an independent, bipartisan commission to investigate detention and interrogation practices at U.S.-run facilities in Guantanamo, Iraq and Afghanistan. The board applauded the U.S. Senate's vote to prohibit the "cruel, inhumane or degrading treatment" of prisoners, and stated: "We do not believe that all those responsible have been held accountable."

His own church has turned squarely against him. It doesn't get any better than this.

the only way it gets better is if his happy ass gets indicted along with Cheney and Krazy Karl.

Bush would just say, "The United Methodist church has been infiltrated by leftists who use the UMC to spread their hatred for America and attack the very principles for which I stand by using the criminalization of politics to uhh, uhh, uhh, attack a polite person, who as president the nation expects from I."
