Muzzle Velocity

blood on Bush's handsBack in 2003 I watched the Bush administration repeatedly lie through its teeth in order to convince Americans that invading Iraq was necessary. WMD's, mobile anthrax stations, the threat of nuclear weapons, all obviously ridiculous notions that too many of my fellow citizens were all-too-willing to embrace if for no other reason than to watch more brown people getting blown to smithereens on cable news.

And how did Mr. Bush counter those who dared to point out the absurdity of his claims? He called us terrorists. This was not an idle threat as the PATRIOT Act gave the government carte blanche to muzzle anyone they didn't like.

As an example, see the video below featuring CIA asset Susan Lindauer. She is a remarkable woman who was arrested, thrown in jail, and prosecuted for seven years to keep her from revealing all she knew about 9-11.  And what she knows is astonishing, so please watch the video and, better yet, read her book Extreme Prejudice: The Terrifying Story of the Patriot Act and the Cover-Ups of 9/11 and Iraq.



Note 1: A self-sustaining solar reactor creates clean hydrogen fuel? Go, science, GO!

Note 2: The Pirate Bay sets up a site to provide torrents of new music, and the artists LOVE it.

Note 3: Poultry farms are feeding their chickens arsenic, caffeine, Tylenol, and banned antibiotics. Bon appetit!

Note 4: The Republican War On Caterpillars has been exposed.

Note 5: I don't know where this guy is going but I wouldn't mind traveling along.

Note 6: Say "Hello!" to Rick Santorum!

Professor Rush Limbaugh presents Know Your Thugs!

Obama: I'm confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress.

Result: Thug

Bush: You're either with us or you're with the terrorists.

Result: Not a thug.
