Libby will not serve time in prison. He will still have to pay his six figure fine-- or someone will. His two and a half year sentence has been commuted by George W. Bush.
Libby is walking the smirk walk now. It is a sad day in America. When the Vice President's agent is convicted, when an agent who probably worked on behalf of the President lied to protect others, probably Karl Rove, the rule of law in this country is at a new low.
CNN reports that 72% of Americans said now, wanted Libby to go to jail.
"My decision to commute his prison sentence leaves in place a harsh punishment for Mr. Libby.
The consequences of his felony conviction on his former life as a lawyer, public servant, and private citizen will be long- lasting.''
One Rasmussen poll showed that only 19% of the public and only 34% of Republicans supported a pardon for Libby.
This shows there is no law, no honor no credibility left with this rotten to the core administration. It is time for every member of congress to call for the impeachment of first Cheney, then Bush.
Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind. Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big) to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
