Seems there's news out now that there have been still more intelligence leaks, and
Fascist Republican tyranny-creators lawmakers are crying for an independent investigation to ferret out the rats and persecute them to the ends of the Earth-- well.... a few comments on the whole government situation:
I find it terribly ironic that NOW the
Fascists Republicans are squealing about leaks in the White House, when the previous administration was at least as 'leaky', and Fascist Republican "lawmakers" were in the forefront of the effort to cover up all of the leaks... Yes, there should be a truly independent, detailed investigation into all intelligence leaks for at least the last 30 years-- and everyone involved in leaking classified information, regardless of party, administration, and former or current government position, should be charged, prosecuted, and if found guilty, sentenced for their crimes... of course, that would guarantee (at the least) that Karl Rove and Dick Cheney would wind up in jail too, alongside multiple Senators and Representatives from both parties, and their aides and assistants.
I also find it astonishing how many fools are attacking this administration (Obama's) as hopeless corrupt and inept, inefficient, etc., and who still give the previous administration a free pass and no notice on all of those charges. Most of those charges may be true of the current
self-proclaimed-but-not-really-Socialist Democrat administration-- however, G. W. Bush's administration was worse. Likewise, it's kind of stunning that y'all wanted Bill Clinton impeached for nookie in the White House, but gave Bush/Cheney a free pass for deliberately manipulating intelligence info, purposefully deceiving the American people, and lying about the reasons for going to war in Iraq. Oh, and speaking of incompetence-- the September 11th, 2001, attacks happened while Bush was asleep at the wheel on Bush's watch.
Even more staggering, is how few people have woken up and realized that both major parties are identical to each other in most respects, and both of them belong to the major corporate interests that have bought and sold the loyalty of each party's politicians for decades at least (if not a century or more by now). How few of you have woken up and realized that American government hides in a cloak of "we the people" propaganda, but it's really been about protecting the prestige, wealth and power of the rich upper crust, while throwing enough crumbs to the middle classes to keep them appeased-- and using the appeased middle classes to hold the poor down, and thus keep a lid on the entire system and keep all the sheeple pacified. This has always been the situation in America--
our National Founding Propaganda the U.S. Constitution was written by a committee of 55 privileged, powerful white men to achieve this very purpose. It works, because so many of you buy into it.
Yes, I used to buy into it too-- but not anymore.
