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 "thousand points of light" 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 "Just say No" 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 them"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 "Tricky Dick's" 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.

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.

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.

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?

"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.

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.

What happens to US credibility if Spain finds them guilty and we don't? Obama, the one who trumpeted “Change we can believe in” 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.

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!

"Cheney still in crosshairs of Senate Intelligence probe" – 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.

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?

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%.

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.

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.

Any involvement in Afghanistan is futile. Keeping military in Afghanistan is pointless as “you could have 200,000 troops there and Afghanistan will swallow them up as it has done in the past.” 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.

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.

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 crimes—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.

Prior to 2000 W proved he was a stone-cold killer. W has always been a stone-cold killer. Before he became commander-in-chief he could only execute Texas criminals, but he took every advantage of that option to prove to the GOP that when given a chance he could be as vile as the worst "war-time president". Attempting another "Crusade" gets them a few extra GOP votes. Scores of US military boys' and girls' deaths as well as those of innocent Iraqis are a fair trade for W!

US military must fight with their hands tied. "The new NIE on Iraq starkly delineates the gulf that separates President Bush's illusions from the realities of the war. Victory, as the president sees it, requires a stable liberal democracy in Iraq that is pro-American. The NIE describes a war that has no chance of producing that result." 43 is lying to us, and our soldiers as well as innocent Iraqis, are dying.

Democratic leaders can pick the scandals they want to attack W about! We can't be true to our traditions with W, who uses his adherence to the hypocritical unitary executive powers as the excuse for every abuse of power he has perpetrated against us. Trying to ruin the US legal system by allowing only those US Attorneys who support his twisted view retain their positions is only the latest manifestation of this.

W needed a boogey-man and invented one. He was coerced into making the 9/11 Commission. His lies were being seen through. W needed a boogey-man and invented one. He got his partner in using the Saudis to his advantage, Kean, to absolve him of any crimes. Even the vilest ghoul has a conscience though-a fact that big bro 43 isn't aware of, and Kean is using phrases that indicate he's had enough. We've seen GOP guys say right words and not follow through.

War is peace and also votes. War is peace and also votes. Maybe W's only motivation is to continue sucking off red state morons who are attached to the idea of killing others for the simple power that it shows the US possesses. Who knows for sure? Few are as psychological maladjusted as those who kill others-so how can we explain the actions of those who, we can make pretty phrase about, but can't really comprehend?

W can declare "Mission Accomplished" about his lying! It soon makes your brain hurt and you just want the nice man in room 101 of the "Ministry of Truth" to make the pain go away-no matter what the price is. This crew gets itself into so many perverse positions that only lying can extract them from the mess. W can declare "Mission Accomplished" about his lying, but not about any of his policies!

W won't escape the treatment his poodle is now undergoing. These are innocent Iraqis and US boys and girls dying for the lies that have been foisted upon us. It is a shame that politics can even be brought into such a matter, but if the Democrats get Lieberman upset enough that he joins the GOP then maybe more lives will be lost, even though two out of three Americans are opposed to Bush's plan to send an additional 21,500 troops to Iraq.

In his own mind W became Hussein. In his own mind W became Hussein. Maybe like Hussein 43's soul has departed his body thus making it impossible for "bubble boy" to concentrate on the remaining period in his term. Maybe W just misses his "Political Brain", the "Turd Blossom" who would be looking out for the fool!

Propaganda Every theatre, Iraq, the Middle East, Pakistan and Afghanistan in GWOT has been an abysmal failure. W can't allow that to be the presentation to his red staters. My high school math fails me. If you have a few equations that yield the same result ( a=b, c= b,d =b ) then all are equal. For W everything equals failure so he resorts to propaganda. Therefore failure equals propaganda.

What the Iraqis want is to shaft the US! Who gets to say to some weeping Iraqi mother that their children were the last victims we coldly label as "collateral damage"? Who will exhibit compassion for the US family of a soldier who died last in this atrocious war? It won't be W. He told Draper the "Dead Certain" author that he was an "October November" man, which is a cynical ploy to land this horrible Iraq war on the lap of the next president.

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.

Hadley's lies defy Levin's and Warner's truth! Hadley's lies defy Levin's and Warner's truth! Dear red stater think of it like this. In the US W doesn't give a flying "expletive deleted" about anyone outside of the top1%! That's his base and where he comes from. In Iraq, transfer this rationale to the Shiites, the top 60%, which is Maliki's base and where he comes from.

Did you hear the lie that "the surge" is working? Did you hear the lie that "the surge" is working? Iraq is a mess. the Afghanistan theatre of GWOT is another example of "Mission Accomplished" which of course is anything but! Seems as if both the US and the Islamic world could control religious wing-nuts-remember big bro 43 allegedly spoke to God before attacking Iraq, the world would be a better place.

Nothing about Iraq makes sense unless you take it as a Psyops! W's administration wanted to lie to us about how the world was happy to have a democracy in Iraq. Psyops are typically perpetrated against the enemy, but W did it to us--his own citizens, who unfortunately W always has viewed as his enemy.

Soon Senior GOP Senators are going to tell W off. W's team has lied about Iraq for too long, as illustrated by the facts contained in the Iraq NIEs. The Democratic Party is exercising its responsibility to provide checks and balances against the executive branch. The GOP is also showing signs of fight W! It is not a matter of if W's insane Iraq surge will be stopped, but when.

They can't protect the capital while the other cities' security plummets. W's first secretary of defense sent off troops with inadequate protection and said that countries go to war with the military they have, not military they wanted. Why not? If W had "fully funded" the US military then our boys and girls wouldn't have been sitting ducks for IED attacks. Gen. Eric Shinseki said the military would need "several hundred thousand" troops, but W didn't "fully fund" it in that aspect either.

Surge isn't aiding Iraq's political reconciliation! The truth is that the surge isn't aiding Iraq's political reconciliation! The book "Dead Certain" shows that W's only concern is saddling the next president with his failed Iraqi theatre of GWOT. He claims to be shedding tears for our soldiers, but if he wasn't such an infantile psychopath, he'd be redeploying our troops now!

"Mission Accomplished", "surge", "GWOT" all emanated from W! For Rove's star pupil, words mean what W says they mean. "Mission Accomplished", "surge", "GWOT" all emanated from W! He ran away from the earlier phrases and the current "surge" doesn't resemble the initial proposal by W just 4 months ago. By the time of Petraeus' promised September evaluation the "surge" might be replaced with escalation and the duration will remain unannounced which means that it will be decades long.

Cheney/Libby et al were focused on destroying Wilson. Libby was focused on destroying Wilson. Reckless, feckless, "Tricky Dick" knew how the fear of being put on his hate list terrified people during his reign of terror. Cheney, with his stooge W, have perfected terrifying opponents due to a small extent, better technology, but mostly due to their sheer lack of decency.

Our interests as a democracy are not being advanced. In a democracy you have a strong legal system, an open government and members of the 4th estate dedicated to finding the truth no matter who is involved. Our US MSM 4th estate is culpable for big bro 43's crimes because they broadcast W's lies without warning the public what is truth and what is propaganda! How does a stain on a blue dress become a media obsession while W's crimes get overlooked?

Apply Pakistan's plight to our's! W's spot is as precarious as Musharraf's and although W dodged the draft and Musharraf is a military leader as well as president, our war-time president is as ethically challenged as Musharraf is. W is probably concerned about impeachment and legal jeopardy. Declaring a delay of the 2008 US elections might be the only he can stay out of jail.

Every parent's nightmare. What can 41 say about 43 who is a mass-murderer in the mold of Nixon? 41 follows GOP tactics. Red staters possess resentment and that can be turned into GOP votes by the "Daddy Party" if they can paint the Democrats as being caught in the pre-9/11 thought mode.

Everyone hates the US because of W's illegal Iraq war. The Decider is irrational and only that explains his surge. W has managed to make both sects hate the US infidels. Of course he would inevitably alienate everyone. W has been play-acting his role as the US "war-time president", with "Crusades" against those who are against us, in his insane "GWOT", acting as his motivation--therefore it was just a matter of time before the occupied people would begin to hate the occupiers.
