Barack Obama, our next President

I don't understand.
According to Waxman, Bush was simply confused. Due to the destruction and loss of life on 9-11. He was in a cloud thereafter.
And come to think of it, he was in a cloud before 9-11 as well. As evidenced by ignoring Tenet's warning six weeks before the attacks struck.
Bush Sought 'Way' To Invade Iraq?

And what happened at President Bush's very first National Security Council meeting is one of O'Neill's most startling revelations.

"From the very beginning, there was a conviction, that Saddam Hussein was a bad person and that he needed to go," says O'Neill, who adds that going after Saddam was topic "A" 10 days after the inauguration - eight months before Sept. 11.

"From the very first instance, it was about Iraq. It was about what we can do to change this regime," says Suskind. "Day one, these things were laid and sealed."

As treasury secretary, O'Neill was a permanent member of the National Security Council. He says in the book he was surprised at the meeting that questions such as "Why Saddam?" and "Why now?" were never asked.

"It was all about finding a way to do it. That was the tone of it. The president saying 'Go find me a way to do this,'" says O'Neill. "For me, the notion of pre-emption, that the U.S. has the unilateral right to do whatever we decide to do, is a really huge leap."

And that came up at this first meeting, says O'Neill, who adds that the discussion of Iraq continued at the next National Security Council meeting two days later.

He got briefing materials under this cover sheet. "There are memos. One of them marked, secret, says,'Plan for post-Saddam Iraq,'" adds Suskind, who says that they discussed an occupation of Iraq in January and February of 2001.

How much staying power is there in a political stance that requires waxing semihysterical about the imminent threat of Obama-ordered drone strikes against Americans sitting in cafés? And as for the other Republican senators who rushed to the floor to cheer Paul on, won’t they soon be entertaining second thoughts? Is patting Rand Paul on the back for his fearmongering a plausible path to the presidency for Marco Rubio or Ted Cruz? Is embracing kookiness a winning strategy for the Republican party? We doubt it.

9-11 was an inside job.

Remember the five dancing Israelis? The ones who set up video cameras at Liberty State Park and filmed 9-11 around the time it began? And celebrated when the planes hit?

They obviously knew it coming. Residents claim they were wearing Arab attire while doing this.

The FBI arrested them. They found box cutters and maps of New York with areas circled in red. Bomb-sniffing dogs began barking when they approached the van the five were driving.

They were held for two months and then released on orders from Ashcroft (obviously on Bush's authority) over the protests of FBI and CIA investigators.

How interesting that six months after 9-11, Bush and Cheney began cooking up stories about a Hussein-Al Qaida collaboration.

Problem with New York is it's too crowded.

Even uptown Manhattan, you can't take a walk during the day without dodging dogs and baby carriages every ten steps.

I'll give 'em the same hell I gave/give you, dem.

PS I'm not your buddy, dem. Pass on the apology.
Stop with the pretense. You know me all too well.

THIS post - Written by your Butty DEBIL to Galt.
She's the only sicko psycho who would talk about dead babies in this profane, sacriligeous manner.

No, the bottom line is that if you bring your dead baby home for the family to cuddle with and perhaps join you for dinner you will be adjudged a complete fuckin' freak who needs to be killed immediately before you can infect others. It's in the bible, check it out: Freaks: 24:15

Overall, the U.S. has approximately 25 percent of the entire global prison population even though it only has 5 percent of the total global population. The United States has the highest incarceration rate on the entire globe by far, and no nation in the history of the world has ever locked up more of its own citizens than we have. Are we really such a cesspool of filth and decay that we need to lock up so many of our own people? Or are there some other factors at work? Could part of the problem be that we have allowed companies to lock up men and women in cages for profit?

Dave is right.
One of the most constantly whined refrains out of the economic crisis is that banks were forced to make bad loans to low income groups because of federal regulations requiring them to loan money to minorities.
That’s hooey, of course. Just enough to convince those who really want to believe the housing crisis was the result of some liberal plot.
Check the June 12, 2012 Washington Post. A Wells Fargo executive describes in detail how she led the team that eagerly sought out minorities and people with bad credit or no credit and hoodwinked them into loans they couldn’t handle.
She was making loans people couldn’t pay under the certainty that she would make her loan fees while the loans themselves would be sold and resold. She was one cog in a giant machine that was spinning out money as the housing hyper-inflationary bubble inflated.
When borrowers defaulted, as banks knew they would, the banks got the property (which was going up in value) and kept the payments. And then bundled the bad loans to Wall Street as "investment grade".
It was a great scam while it lasted. Blame the banks for what happened. And the GOP Majority in Congress and the White House who did nothing as the situation spun out of control.
That’s hooey?

I think we know who the old lunatic is in the room!
