George Bush had killed children in your name, with your taxes. Orrin Hatch and countless other "leaders" we voted for supported this (Orrin claimed he was privy to evidence of Iraq's WMDs, but couldn't reveal the sources--he has yet to do so, and it will be his epitaph that he doesn't).

More importantly, do YOU approve of infanticide?

I don't. This is sickness of the ultimate sort. Allow me to start by quoting a document from what should be Time Magazine's "Man of the Year," Jullian Assange (but of course won't, since that particular rag helps support our military insanity):

" A US diplomatic cable made public by WikiLeaks provides evidence that US troops executed at least 10 Iraqi civilians, including a woman in her 70s and a five-month-old infant, then called in an airstrike to destroy the evidence, during a controversial 2006 incident in the central Iraqi town of Ishaqi.

... Philip Alston, the UN's special rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions, said in a communication to US officials dated 12 days after the March 15, 2006, incident that autopsies performed in the Iraqi city of Tikrit showed that all the dead had been handcuffed and shot in the head. Among the dead were four women and five children. The children were all five years old or younger.

.... Military officials also refused to reveal which units might have been involved in the incident."

Is that sick enough for you? It makes me want to vomit. That Obama won't go after the criminals, and has in fact committed more crimes of similar nature, should be enough to disgust to nausea any right minded individual.

You'd think that anti-abortionists would be up in arms. But I have yet to hear from one of them on this extraordinary event. Evidently infanticide does not concern them. Once you've popped out of the vagina, it would appear that your soul doesn't matter.

But it does to me.

This is among the most twisted, blatant, egregious episodes in U.S. history (hardly the first, I am painfully aware, but right now in front of our faces, not to mention the eyes of the world). Brought to you by a man our government wants to assassinate. If this is not living proof that we've taken a seriously wrong turn, I can't imagine what is.

Disgusting, repulsive, barbaric, satanic. There is no other way to put it. And those who sit on their hands--which would just about every politician we have elected--are sick beyond repair.

The "Bush Abortions" might be a fitting title here, but it doesn't go far enough. We are talking about young children, innocent human beings, being killed in cold blood, infinitely worse than any Truman Capote movie. Or any movie I can conceive of.

Infanticide... do you get the meaning of that? Homo sapiens cannot go any lower. I don't believe in Hell, but I hope there is one, and Bush and Obama can join Hitler and countless other heartless, brainless, self-created sickos there.

If Obama can't rise off his lazy, pathetic ass and bring charges against the former Commander-in-Chief, then he too needs to go quit his post. Immediately.

How damn dumb can we be? This is our "shining light on the hill"?

In my run for U.S. Senate against Utah's Orrin Hatch, I posted many progressive ideas and principles that I internalized over the years. I'm leaving that site up indefinitely, since it describes what I believe most members of our species truly (more...)
