There are a couple of fallacies floating about that are doing America and its citizens terrible harm. One of the great advantages of our system of government is that it tends to congregated larcenous, sociopathic liars, thieves and murderers in the city halls, the county court houses, the state capitals and in the big ho-dad of them all- Washington D. C.. This should make it a task of relative ease for the media to keep an eye on such a motley crew when its thugs, time and time again, conspire to distort facts, plan robberies and consort to slaughter people far and wide. Alas, the media have become lapdogs and lackeys of these really despicable varlets. So the job of getting the straight skinny to the American public falls on the narrow shoulders of the ill paid and non-paid bloggist. So let’s get to it.
Totally murderous, thieving lie # 1. If we don’t fight them there we will have to fight them here. This tedious prevarication keeps getting people killed and opens the door to the theft of Iraq’s oil. This lie is exactly backwards, irrefutably so. It should read- If we keep fighting them over there we surely will have to fight them here. Not only will we be fighting the Islamic world in Tulsa and Tallahassee we are liable to be fighting a coalition of many of the world’s more powerful nations. Bullies tend to lose their exalted positions after a weakling or two stands up to them. We have bombed, invaded, and been in more wars- wars overt, wars covert and wars by proxy since WWII than the rest of the world combined. The only country that even makes a blip on this bloody radar was the USSR. Look what happened to it. Killing, oppressing and torturing and supporting killers, oppressors and torturers are not really the ways of a peace loving people. The world rightfully is growing weary of such. We can be much more secure and have our pockets fuller by employing diplomacy and compassion. It would be nice to the good guys again.
Totally murderous, thieving lie # 2. The Democrats do not have the sixty votes to prevent a filibuster or to override a veto so they cannot stop the war. Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi are either very, very, stupid or pathological liars but maybe I am being unfair, most likely they are both stupid and liars. The sad part of this is that their naive duplicity is costing lives daily and abets gangster outfits like Halliburton and Blackwater to continue the massive looting of the proceeds from American taxpayer. If these two can read I suggest they read the American constitution (this might not be a bad idea for at least five members of the Supreme Court). Bush is not, or should not be able, to authorize spending without the consent of the Congress. Here is the tragic part: the war could well have been over today had the Democrats demonstrated the least modicum of integrity. Imagine: Pelosi: “Look! The murdering spoiled ass punk vetoed the generous budget we authorized for our brave troops. He doesn’t give a damn how many of them are maimed and killed. This shows his utter incompetence and arrogance, he would rather let the blood of American soldiers bleed away in desert sand than relinquish even an iota of the power he has illegally seized. This is the way of dictators and we will not stand for it. We will protect our troops by allotting only monies needed to bring them safely home and out of harm’s way in this senseless war that has brought so much shame to America. GOD BLESS ALL YOU HEROS IN UNIFORM. WE WILL DO OUR JOB TO SAVE YOU FROM THIS MADMAN.” Reid: “AMEN. YOU GO GIRL” The two congressional leaders high five. See, no need to override a veto, no need to endure a filibuster. The best law here is no law. Don’t send the bastard a bill to veto or sign, don’t give him the cash- make his cronies rather than soldiers and their families suffer for a change.
