Winston Smith is an ex-Social Worker. I worked in child welfare, and in medical settings and in homeless settings. In the later our facility was geared as a permanent address for people to apply for welfare. Once they received that we could send them to facilities in which their welfare paid the bill and provided enough for a meager existence. We also referred people to vocational rehabilitation services. Many of the people who came to us were people who were clearly emotionally ill, but Reagan's slashing of the services for these people caused them to become homeless. One woman I dealt with-St. Jane, believed she was in direct communication with God, urinated freely without using the facilities and she had 47 bags of trash which were prized possessions. She got welfare and was sent to a facility were she could survive. The rule was that our facility could be used 1 time only as we had too many people who thought that the services that we provided we would lift them from the dire straights that they were in. Well, we provided our services for St. Jane around Thanksgiving. On Christmas Eve she was back with her 47 bags of trash and wanted to stay at our facility. I informed my superior of this situation, but we declined to provide services for St. Jane. She slept in front of our facility in a snowstorm. The local rag took the picture and excoriated us for what we did. The local welfare department asked her where she would like to live. St. Jane said Chicago because she liked the wind. She knew on one there. She and her 47 bags of trash of were carted onto a train for the windy city and never of again. The local welfare department was glad to get shed of her. Social welfare in the mid-1980's was geared to blame the victim. Ill people were sent home from hospitals were no one was going to help them because social welfare budgets were slashed by Reagan. Bush 41's â"thousand points of lightâ"ť was just another way to shaft the weakest in our society. Bush 43's faith based initiative was just another attempt to reduce social welfare services. Reagan's â"Just say Noâ"ť was the pinnacle of hypocrisy. No services for those who desperately needed them under the guise of tough love.
Obviously I became burnt out by too much indifference regarding our weak and weary. I couldn't look at desperate people and could not get myself to say that what I could offer them wouldn't really help themâ"”it would only get them out of my office to be another person's problem, until the local welfare department carted them away.
I had little interest in politics until the illegal Iraq War started. Growing up in the 1960's caused me to understand that the GOP used war to attract right-wing extremists to vote for them. When â"Tricky Dick'sâ"ť secret plan to end the Vietnam War unfolded into elongating our presence there for 8 years I knew that I would never believe a GOP war-monger again. I dislike Obama's plan to escalate our presence in Afghanistan and see it as a craven attempt to placate the GOP. Maybe he'll reduce the GOP's attacks against him, but it will at the expense of alienating his base.

Too many crises for him to handle, but also too much obfuscation and meekness from Obama!
The Democrats want to help the unemployed. Obama's advisers have convinced him that he would be labeled pre-911 thinker if he didn't send more troops to Afghanistan. The GOP is salivating over the quagmire Obama is entering. Every penny spent in Afghanistan can't be spent here. The Afghanis hate the US infidels. Why are we wasting our military youths' lives and spending our treasure in a country whose citizens hate us?

What is the Huckster-in-Chief Obama Selling?
What is Obama selling? He promised "change we can believe in", but hasn't delivered. Obviously he is lying to us and accepting the Nobel Peace Prize is just another example. He isn't fooling our friends and enemies and there are many progressives who see through his act and just wish they could have their vote for this snake oil peddler back. Most interestingly is he trying to sell himself that he isn't a war mongerer?

Did the Republicans leave a booby trap behind?
Can't you just see Rove smirking and saying to Bush 43 that starting an occupation in Afghanistan would help them in their goal of creating a permanent GOP advantage? It would be better yet if Bush 43 started it and pretended they were winning and actually left a huge disaster for the Democratic president that had to clean up their mess. Adopting the surge strategy furthers GOP goals.

Meet the new boss--Same as the old boss.
He could have emphasized helping the Main Street dwellers, not the Wall Street crooks. His solution for the economy was identical to what the GOP would do as he has redistributed wealth to the top 1%. His involvement in the health care debate has been minimal. He is elongating â€śGWOTâ€ť. What is the difference between the 43rd and 44th President?
Sunday, November 22, 2009 Any involvement in Afghanistan is futile.
Keeping military in Afghanistan is pointless as â€śyou could have 200,000 troops there and Afghanistan will swallow them up as it has done in the past.â€ť Funds spent on reconstruction don't make it out of the corrupt leaders' hands. NATO is planning on a phased withdrawal. We shouldn't be left holding the bag as we were in Iraq again.

What type of military strategy is needed in Afghanistan?
What type of military strategy is needed in Afghanistan? Not any strategy that the leaks say Obama is considering. We need to think less troops in a fourth generation type warfare, if any at all. Obama should declare victory in Afghanistan as LBJ should have in Vietnam and bail out of Afghanistan in a New York minute.
Wednesday, November 4, 2009 Dithering!
Cheney makes dithering remark and the US media is compelled to cover it. Why? He failed in every aspect of GWOT. The proper response to people who are acting poorly is to ignore them as either positive or negative reinforcements encourage them to continue the offensive behavior. I've seen too much of Cheney. The bizarre thing about this is that when he was in office he was in a concealed location and was rarely seen.

Why is Obama protecting 43?
The Israeli military attacked the Osirak nuclear reactor in Iraq in 1981. The UN Security Council unanimously condemned Israel's action as an illegal use of force. 22 years later Cheney convinced 43 (Bush,Sr.) to follow this tactic. Almost immediately after 43 left office, the Pentagon decided that 43's preemptive wars policy should be reconsidered. If his strongest allies in the Pentagon are turning on 43, why isn't Obama?
Monday, October 12, 2009(1 comments)
43 and 1/2.
No one yet knows if Obama's policy in Afghanistan will differ much from 43's. Obama is, like 43, bypassing Congress to detain suspects indefinitely. Ominously, it is not clear how broadly Obama will want to define what a suspect is. Obama is willing to keep 43's e-mails--information that the US public has a right to see. Why do we think that Obama will allow Holder's investigation into war crimes go anywhere?
Monday, October 12, 2009(1 comments)
The GOP doesn't care about policies just votes.
The policy for Afghanistan is a looming problem and the GOP will spin reality to get their goals accomplished and will be greatly helped by having a mole in place. How many others are out there--in addition to the network of retired military analysts who follow Whitman's orders, and the commander of Nato forces in Afghanistan General McChrystal?

The GOP knows how to maximize vast right-wing conspiracy.
The GOP knows how to maximize vast right-wing conspiracy. They have been doing it for years. Obama is being assailed from every source in all of his activities. Obama can't even try to bring the Olympics to the US. What can be wrong with that? Obama has to realize that any 43 appointee isn't his ally.
Wednesday, September 30, 2009 There is more than Obama's legacy at stake here.
There is more than Obama's legacy at stake here. The intended audience of all the GOP tactics this summer was the apathetic red stater who typically lives a life of quiet despair. The GOP by appealing to their baser desires of fear and hatred, have transformed these lost souls who aren't so quiet anymore. If the GOP doesn't control the unruly mobs that their tactics created, who can predict what violence might occur?
Monday, September 28, 2009(2 comments)
We could descend into violence against a President again.
There is the short-term reality that the GOP has an expertly functioning propaganda machine that can cart out drones to yell inane remarks anywhere the leaders want them to. Currently they are savagely attacking Obama's dream of improving health care. Before long the issue won't be health care. It doesn't matter to the GOP because their tactics can be used against any policy. Can they control the hatred they have created?

What happens to US credibility if Spain finds them guilty and we don't?
Obama, the one who trumpeted â€śChange we can believe inâ€ť must act ethically here. He can mouth his reservations about prosecuting those who were defending our country after 9/11, but once Cheney convinced Bush 43 to torture 1 detainee, they were war criminals. Nothing else matters.
Thursday, September 10, 2009(2 comments)
Currently the war criminals are shaping the argument.
Cheney and his crew are getting their opportunity to spin reality. They committed truly heinous crimesâ€”torturing prisoners, and now the entire GOP is trying to protect them so that they can win a few seats in the upcoming election.
We want our good names restored. I don't want to be associated with war criminals. This group of war criminals needs to be brought to justice.

If I listened to this junk my brain would rot also.
If I listened to the Clear Channel and FOX TV junk my brain would rot away also. What happens to a person that makes him want to listen to this hatred all day long? As Mick Jagger wrote â€śRape, murder it's just a shot away. Love is just a kiss awayâ€ť. Somehow I don't see Palin, Beck et al making nice with the Democrats any time soon.

Currently the war criminals are shaping the argument.
Cheney and his crew are getting their opportunity to spin reality. They lied their way into GWOT and as a result of that expansion of executive branch powers they had a chance to commit truly heinous crimesâ€”torturing prisoners, and they couldn't resist.
We want our good names restored. I don't want to be associated with war criminals. To accomplish that this group of war criminals needs to be brought to justice.

You did it to Abu Zubaida!
Big bro 43 forced US personnel to torture detainees and now the Taliban has one of our dear soldiers, Pfc. Bowe R. Bergdahl. The US military is incensed about the Taliban's exploitation of him which the US military alleges is in violation of international law. The Taliban is using this awful situation for propaganda, as had Rumsfeld. A simple axiom related to this is "We can't have it both ways."

Bush ruined our foreign policy so completely that how can success be achieved?
Bush ruined our foreign policy so badly--notably in Iraq and Cheney's illegal assassination ring, that Obama's option are slim to none, and success won't be easy. Throw in their failed domestic policy and the torturing of detainees and Obama has so many atrocities to deal with that you wonder if Rove didn't plan it this way so that Obama was doomed to failure.
Monday, June 15, 2009(3 comments)
"Cheney still in crosshairs of Senate Intelligence probe" Â–
Events will force Obama to act and investigate and prosecute Cheney and the war criminals. It isn't only the US that is concerned about torturing detainees. And it isn't only Cheney the world is after. Obama will have to honor his base's concern over torture and investigate and prosecute the war criminals.

What He Said and What his Policies are Understandably Don't Match.
No decent Democratic or Republican president would have done what W did. He let himself be swayed by a radical right-winger, Cheney, who psychologists and historians will label as being as ghoulish as the worst throughout history.
Obama's words and earlier votes don't match his policies, but given with what he had to deal with that is understandable even though it is regrettable.
Sunday, May 17, 2009(21 comments)
This isn't what I voted for
This isn't what I voted for. Remember the storm over "You can't put lipstick on a pig" regarding the military tribunals? Well now Obama is adopting another vile W policy, but saying that the slightest modification to it makes it legal and honorable. It is ethical in a pig's eye! This isn't "change we can believe in"!

Specter is an opportunist--he holds inconsistent political stances, but then so has Obama.
Who knows what will happen with Specter's and Obama's erratic moves, but wouldn't it be ironic if, as chairmanship on a Judiciary subcommittee, Specter follows through on the senatorial initiatives he initiated back when he was the GOP chairmanship of the Judiciary committee-that of re-establishing clear limits on Presidential power resulting in the prosecution of W as a war criminal.

Big Bro 43's "meaning of is" perjury or obstruction of justice
Big bro 43 committed perjury regarding torture. The GOP impeached Clinton over that. The GOP is now saying that the administration in power should not in any instance investigate the previous administration, except they did it. They went after Clinton for his pardons and for trashing some offices. The GOP has to be consistent, which means they have to support investigating W's war crimes.
Monday, April 27, 2009 Obama faltered by interfering with criminal proceedings against war criminals
Obama flapped his gums too much. We hated the politicization of big bro 43's Justice Department. What is Obama's involvement in the process of investigating/prosecuting big bro 43's war crimes other than a continuation of that? Obama is a constitutional law expert. You couldn't prove it by his actions in this matter so far.
Sunday, April 19, 2009(2 comments)
As of Now Obama Isn't Change We Can Believe in.
We hoped that Obama would actually be an agent of change, but he is currently obstructing justice as he won't allow the mechanisms of the US government do what they would without his interference. Both the Democrat controlled House and Senate have plans to investigate W's crimes, without the needed support from Obama. This isn't in his control. He must prosecute W's team who are using his passivity to attack him.
Thursday, April 9, 2009(8 comments)
The US has to prosecute W for war crimes.
Obama thinks that going easy on big bro 43 will appease the GOP. That is naďve. In every arena the GOP and Cheney is attacking Obama and the citizens of the US. Obama should go directly to an independent counsel now. The international community will shame him into it as the first steps towards opening a criminal investigation against the Bush administration about torture is now underway by a Spanish court.
Monday, March 30, 2009(10 comments)
W broke international laws; Obama should prosecute
Cheney is dialoguing. He's trying to talk around his crimes so that he'll muddy up the water. Obama should just say that enough is enough and that he'll let the investigations proceed. Turley says it would be the shortest investigation in history. Turley says Obama is waiting for a convenient moment. That isn't good enough with our international standing at stake!
Saturday, March 21, 2009(3 comments)
"That's been going on, in the name of all of us."
W wanted to be a wartime president and a dashing Jack Bauer spy and commit any crime in his quest to protect the homeland from his delusional GWOT threat. Maybe the reason he always changed who we were fighting against was because he wanted to say they were always out there-which feeds into two staples of the GOP platform--paranoia and war mongering. Without knowing who the "they" is he's referring to, W can't be proven wrong.

Bush, with criminal intent, planned the economic crisis for partisan GOP gain.
Rove told "bubble boy" that the US populace was a bunch of saps and to fleece them as much as possible. We are in an economic crisis because of the Rove's plan. The economic crisis is sure acting as a distraction. Leahy's Truth Commission isn't getting off the ground because Obama wants to look forward not backward. "Turd Blossom" is laughing at how the Democrats are being hamstrung because of the mess he left behind.
Monday, March 9, 2009(1 comments)
W is flipping us off.
Obama wants to look forward, not backward and his, as well as Congress' time, must be spent on the economic crisis we are mired in, but the US can do more than one thing. Remember how Obama bashed McCain with that sentiment when Mini-me suspended a debate to concentrate on the economic crisis? Obama talks about change. Well, his foreign policy has no chance of changing positively unless he prosecutes the criminals.

Bush nightmare land-the US!
This foul brute foresaw the US becoming a land in the image of Middle East countries in which there was a small oligarchy of the wealthy and powerful and great poverty. He wanted a great horde of poor people to fight their Middle Eastern counterparts so that his "everlasting war against terrorism" would last forever. Who knows if W anticipated the great economic crisis he was throwing the US into? The rich got theirs.
Wednesday, February 25, 2009(13 comments)
The terrorists could never have inflicted upon us the damage that W has.
W inflicted worse damage on the US than bin laden could ever have dreamed for. Big bro 43 destroyed our economy, our legal system, and ruined our international standing and who gained by it? Al-Qaida used Iraq as a recruiting bonanza and the top 1% stuffed money into their pockets while Herr Karl dreamed of building a permanent GOP majority. Put them in cages with the other rabid animals!
Saturday, February 14, 2009(2 comments)
Compromising now-impeachment later.
Rush Limbaugh and Herr Karl completely control every Clear Channel listener and FOX TV viewer. These dittoheads are every bit as apathetic as "1984's" proles and Rove has their every characteristic analyzed and every pitch which appeals to their darkest sides determined. The GOP can phony up a Reverend Wright or Weatherman Ayers scandal whenever they want and the GOP can always have the populace talking about scandals.
Sunday, February 8, 2009(14 comments)
You lost! Stop the hypocritical legal defenses and destroying the US government.
We know big bro 43's crew is trying to setup legal arguments for the upcoming trials, but please stop the propaganda. The public will become sated with their hypocrisy and your defense lawyers won't have anything left for your trials. Worse is how big bro 43 has his appointees burrowing into Obama's government and lying about Obama's policies to make it appear that Obama will continue big bro 43's illegal activities.
Monday, February 2, 2009(1 comments)
Big bro 43 has put us on the wrong side of justice and history.
Big bro 43's "enhanced techniques" has caused an increase in the number of terrorists. Suppose your Uncle Joe was tortured in WW2. If his nephews were of legal age to enter the war wouldn't revenge sway them to fight? The same applies to Muslim youth. If the US tortures detainees then more terrorists will be recruited-consequentially we stand a greater risk of being attacked by terrorists because W committed secret war crimes.
Sunday, January 25, 2009(3 comments)
Accessories after the fact.
Big bro 43 lied when he promised to bring honor and dignity to the White House, but to the eyes of the world we are covering up his crimes against humanity because we know that W and his v.p., during their exit interviews to burnish W's legacy, clearly proclaimed that they facilitated the waterboarding of detainees. For partisan GOP gain they declared that they were willing to do anything possible to protect the US.
Monday, January 19, 2009(2 comments)
Will Obama honor big bro 43 by imprisoning him for the good of the homeland?
W warned the newcomer that his biggest responsibility was protecting the homeland. Top W officials have said that W's torturing of detainees was the main reason that people attributed their conversion to terrorism to and that it is illegal. Obama must investigate and if necessary imprison W--who has admitted that he ordered the torturing, if Obama wants to make the homeland safe, which every president must do.
Sunday, December 14, 2008 You need the "1984" code book to realize that W dreams the bottom 99% would aspire only to a futureless life.
Look at the crimes. As W is trotting around trying to burnish his legacy behind the scenes he is trying to add new orders shafting employees-the specific ones who provide Homeland Security no less, as well as augmenting his detrimental work against the environment. In W's US only the top 1% can afford the required air cleaning devices to protect us from the spoiled air we breathe which W produced as a gift to the top 1%.

Why did we all hate Palin?
W and Palin are linked together as idiot GOP puppets. She was just the latest symbol of the GOP's complete hatred of the US and the GOP's reliance on propagandists to create the reality they wanted our common man to docilely accept. You wonder how W can look himself in the mirror. Palin called Obama a hater of the US and somehow she sees herself as a politician with a future full of promise when it is its mirror opposite.
Saturday, November 29, 2008(3 comments)
These blue-blooded chumps are laughing at us
There is a limited amount of people who are vile enough to serve W and they keep on bumping into each other's crimes. Harvey Pitt, the robber baron Bush's initial SEC chairman undoubtedly taught Paulson about deregulation. W, the business major, learned about business models. He used the Iraqi reconstruction outline for his destruction of our economy for his cronies' gain.
Sunday, November 23, 2008 $25 billion is 2 months in Iraq.
W could piss away so much money in Iraq for the Halliburtons and Blackwaters,but can't get himself to help the automakers which comprise 10% of the US workforce.
Let's see-anything for the top 1% "Pioneer" and "Ranger" contributors and nothing for the lower and middle classes. That sums up the traditional GOP economic policy that the radically incompetent big bro 43 abused.
Monday, November 17, 2008(12 comments)
Bush planned the economic crisis for partisan GOP gain.
With the Iraq war the red staters didn't know if we fighting the Orwellian Eurasia and/or Eastasia because these dear lazy dolts have to believe the propaganda that Clear Channel and FOX news disseminates.
As far as the bailout--or can it be better labeled one last chance for the top 1% swine at the trough, there is only one conclusion. Bush planned the economic crisis for partisan GOP gain, just as he did the Iraq war.
Sunday, November 9, 2008 By the way, you sorry excuse for a president your policies are reprehensible!
How can Obama calmly say to W that his domestic policies have resulted in the subprime mortgage crisis which metastasized into an economic crisis? Obama knows that the W administration has already denied any desire to pass lame-duck economic stimulus legislation. How can Obama keep his composure when he realizes that W's defiance of this stimulus will result in elongating our middle and lower classes suffering?

"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."
It can't be clearer. Vote for Obama. The other side has ruined our chances for financial security-resulting in our desperate youth joining the military for a chance to succeed. Who will they be fighting if mini-me wins? Not bin laden, but Shiites and Sunnis and Kurds who want to kill our boys and girls specifically because they hate the US occupiers.
We are not asking for much--just vote for Obama.
Saturday, October 25, 2008(2 comments)
It hasn't changed.
When you consider the base of the GOP you realize that these people-- other than the loathsome top 1%, are people who barely think. They bear the brunt of the GOP's wars and tax scams for the top 1%, yet they believe the GOP propaganda which rarely changes throughout the decades.
Wednesday, October 15, 2008 We're all fearful, but we need hope!
Let's consider this. If it gets into the mass culture it was prevalent. What is a better example of this than the lyrics of the time? Rock groups in the 1960 era echoed sentiments-sometimes presaged those of the youth of the period.
Congressman Lewis agrees with the Rascals--a group whose popularity reached its apex during the time period Lewis is discussing, that mini-me's campaign has similarities to Wallace's.
Monday, September 29, 2008 Obama has to be more aggressive and the time to start is now!
I saw a CNN survey that said Obama won the debate 51 to 38. The CNN broadcaster who remarked on the survey made the disclaimer that this result was for those who watched the debate. Who else could vote on it?
Rove knows his beloved 2 to 5% of information free voters. Mini-me put lies and propaganda out there that will float around the US environment and will trickle into these people's mind.
Friday, September 26, 2008(1 comments)
Tit for tat has to end with Keating 5.
I can see in the debate Obama saying to mini-me "Look. You were caught in the 1987 Keating 5 scandal, the 1999 Paxson/Iseman mess, and you have been a champion of deregulation. This $700 billion bailout comes directly from your incompetence, and yet you have an ad out saying that I caused the economic crisis the US is in. Do you have no honor?"
The debates might end up with the two of them pounding on each other.

I haven't heard a blessed word about the benchmarks that Iraq had to meet or just the mathematical fact that 11 out of 18 is 61% and change. I guess that qualifies as a gentleman's C in W's Yale, but why isn't our media challenging mini-me about this non-fuzzy math?
Woodward's latest book is just the latest evidence that demonstrates that W lied to us and spied on his hand-picked Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki.
Saturday, August 30, 2008 McCain's emptiness.
The US's international policy in the last 8 year has been dominated by big bro 43's GWOT-which has isolated us and made us weaker. W's domestic policy has caused a weakening of the dollar, losses in jobs and the sub-prime mortgage crisis.
Based on these disasters in governance--and mini-me's allegiance to them, there is nothing in McCain's attacks of Obama.
Monday, August 18, 2008 GWOT is only a sick scam which weakened us!
GWOT is only a sick scam which weakened us! We have no resources available for other emergencies such as Georgia. Putin knew this and had no fear of us when he attacked Georgia. Putin snickered when he heard Gates talking about the "Long War" knowing we would let him do whatever he wanted in Georgia.
We need the moral high ground in the international community and W must be impeached to restore it.

Dear red staters the GOP is playing blood-stained politics with our military.
If Obama can fight off mini-me's slanderous remarks then the trail for W's crimes are hot. W's aiding of mini-me's campaign is not about burnishing W's legacy-it is about keeping the Democrats from having subpoena power while all of the crimes are still fresh.
We know that big bro 43 is running out the clock and that the Democrats won't impeach him as they figure if they W's popularity will surge from all-time lows.

Start the phased withdrawal from Iraq!
Decent humans such as ourselves think about Kerry's plea: "How do you ask a man to be the last man to die for a mistake?"
Our enemy is in the Tora Bora region, not Iraq-which is where there is no WMD and where there won't be a sovereign Iraq democracy, if big bro 43 has his way!
Wednesday, July 2, 2008 The GOP is trying their ages old ploy of terrifying the US.
We're getting people who see life in our country as being so suspect that signing on to a living hell is a viable option, thanks to big bro 43 and mini-me McCain's propaganda. Bush has stated that he envied people in the military the adventure of fighting against our GWOT enemies. These extremist right-wing Christian people are the same as the extremist Islamic jihadist people who sign up to be suicide bombers.

Terrorism thrives in lawless areas
Big bro 43 has flaunted US laws and has spread propaganda regarding GWOT to scare our citizens-thus he has promoted bin laden's goals much more effectively than Al-Qaeda ever could. Mini-me McCain, W's third term, has the nerve to attack Obama as being weak on terrorism, when it is W and the GOP who have given bin laden his greatest victories. After all they let him go when they had him bottled up in Tora Bora.
Friday, June 20, 2008 Typical war-mongering, hypocritical, GOP model.
McCain's politics mirror Cheney's. They can flip-flop along seamlessly telling different packs of lies to different packs of rubes. McCain was against tax cuts for the rich, until he signed up for them. He was adamantly against allowing the US Military torture detainees, but thought that the CIA could. He is mumbling that our forces could
be in Iraq a hundred years--perpetuating GWOT as he is as radically incompetent as W is
Sunday, June 1, 2008(1 comments)
"What Happened" is that big bro 43 used propaganda to push us into an illegal pre-emptive, non-sanctioned by the UN, war. W used perpetual campaigning to ram down our throats lies about WMD, and his lies were so pervasive he fooled experienced Senators. W prattled that Congress didn't have access to the information he did so how could the Congress not agree with him.
Monday, May 5, 2008(2 comments)
Get out now.
History will look at this awful Iraq war and note that it was started on a pack of lies, continued by the same and state that the only group who benefited from it, were the Halliburtons of the world and condemn the big bro 43 administration for this vile conflicts of interests.
