I am bitter that this administration gutted the nation's regulatory apparatus for the sole purpose of boosting industry profit margins, resulting first in the mortgage meltdown and more recently safety maintenance chaos in the airline industry.

I am bitter that George W. Bush and Dick Cheney's unnecessary and illegal war in Iraq has gotten 4000 other people's children killed while their daughters have been allowed uninterrupted lives of privilege and safety.

I am bitter that this administration has treated the US Constitution and Bill of Rights as though they were suggestions rather than the sacred law of the land.

I am bitter that this administration placed one of the nation's most powerful agencies of government, the Department of Justice, in the hands of a man. Alberto Gonzales, who's only claim to fame is that he was unqualified, unprincipled and underhanded.

I am bitter that congress has shown neither the patriotism or guts to step up to their constitutional duty to impeach members of this administration for breaking existing laws, violating our civil rights and showing utter contempt for the separations of powers mandated in the US Constitution.

But most of all I am bitter that it appears almost certain that the criminal acts committed by members of this administration will go unpunished. That they will indeed get away with it all. And that that will set a precedent for the next George W. Bush-type who finagles his/her way into the Oval Office.

What the hell's wrong with you?
