Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty; power is ever stealing from the many to the few

Wendell Phillips, 1852

The enemies of Freedom do not argue: they shout and they shoot.

W.R. Inge, 1935

....and the more things change, the more they stay the same...

Right-wing talking heads and voices, and most of the MSM seem to have such great insight and are eager to speak for all Americans when they announce that Americans are suffering from Bailout burnout.
WRONG, what this American is suffering from is CORRUPTION burnout.
A corrupt administration, w's, appoints corrupt lawyers to the Justice Dept. These lawyers were forced to take corrupt Sen. Ted Stevens to trial before his election because he insisted. He was subsequently found quilty...on seven counts. Now we learn these corrupt appointees threw the case. It is not possible that these lawyers did not know they were committing an illegal act when they did not turn over all their evidence to the defense team. So for a second time these lawyers sold their soul to the devil, perhaps thinking that w and his ilk would protect them from accountability and possible criminal charges, not to mention the loss of their license to practice law. Not so. w and his ilk could give a rat's a** at this point, about who the most recent "little person" in his administration is being called to task now. No, they got what they came after and if you are found dead on the roadside...well, in the words of Cheney..."So?" They gave their allegiances to a paper tiger and Ted Stevens, after being found guilty will never be held accountable for his thefts from the American people.
I remember a time when we would shake our heads in disbelief when we would hear of leaders around the world who would steal food and medicines meant for their citizens and keep them for themselves. How could any leader steal from their own people, allowing their countrymen to go homeless, hungry, ignorant? How could such a person come to and stay in power? Do you know how w made money? After bankrupting more than one company, his daddy's friends loaned him the money to buy into a baseball team. He and the other owners threatened to move the team if the city did not build a new stadium for their team. Voters said yes, lets build it and so taxpayers footed the bill for the new stadium A few years later, w, sold their team, anyway...but this time they had a stadium to go with it...thanks to local taxpayers...w's take from this deal was approximately 13 million. The bushies have a history of stealing from the taxpayers...middle income taxpayers of course...the rich pay no taxes. Never has that been clearer than when so many candidates, office holders and appointees find themselves paying back taxes, cleaning up their "loose ends". Being in the limelight, trying to further one's career brings out a lot of "loose ends"...course, its all honest errors or oversights! Yes, of course, of course.

PATRIOTS, a big budget fight is coming on health care. It has been suggested by some that the only way we will achieve health care for all is to "take to the streets" as was done in the 60's. The Civil Rights Bill would never have been passed if Americans had not marched and protested, demanding that all Americans must have equal rights. Are you ready? Will you join those marches?
