Note to Dems: Just Say No to Torture.
While most of us are hoping to move beyond the first 100 days and want to look to this administration to lead us into an era of significant, meaningful change that works on problems such as clean water, livable cities, health-care reform, and PEACE the Democratically controlled Congress continues to wade knee deep in the Potomac muck. Aided and abetted by an unholy trinity of Dick and Karl (history will prove they are the same person), Sean, and Rush, the Dems continue to fall for the sucker punch of negativity known as--the conservative pundit.
When will the Dems learn they are being played by the Repubs? Look closely behind the curtain and you'll see the FatBoys with the Little Things smirking with the realization that they've duped the country again into arguing about conservative issues so that progressive changes won't be addressed. We spend an inordinate amount of time and energy debating issues that won't be solved by sparring matches of the empty body politic that are televised on FOX and CNN and endlessly replayed on MSNBC and drive-time radio.
The only way to really answer the torture question is to have a war-crimes trial and neither party wants this since they are both culpable. As long as the country is mired in these who-knew-what-when debates we can't move forward with more compelling issues such as why do we continue to spend the bulk of our tax dollars on the military while our country's health care system, jobs, and infrastructure goes to hell-in-a-handbasket?
Get a grip folks. Let's solve the problems that to keep our neighborhoods livable. Cheney doesn't have much time left; he's a mope and a dope. Forget him.
Remember. It's the ECONOMY stupid!
