Will Durst: Boss Dick

Written by
Alright, I got a message for the American public, and the message is this: leave Dick Cheney alone. He's not answerable to you. Get off his big white furry butt. You are not the boss of him. Nobody is the boss of him. Dick Cheney is the boss. Of you, me, Bush. Nouri Al-Maliki. Gitmo. All of us. He's Boss Dick. And the only reason you're out to get him is because when he smiles, he looks like he swallowed a small black child. And that is just prejudiced, people. Doesn't matter that he's keeping this country safe. And the only two ways to do it are his way and the highway. Well, actually, under the highway. Sometimes as part of the highway. Mixed in with the rebar.

Call out the Instigator
Because there's something in the air
We got to get together sooner or later
Because the revolution's here
You know it's right!

BuzzFlash,

It can't be put it into enough words without using all of the four letter words that come to mind, to aptly describe how the rivers of greed in this country are never dammed up, and how they flood this country with death, debt, and the destruction of people's lives. And, this will keep on until Americans stop measuring people by the number in their bank accounts and investments, and allow them to keep buying out our government, one sawbuck at a time.

The lead item in the now famous Washington Post series on Cheney and who really is the President concerns the following incident (Gellman and Becker, "A Different Understanding with the President, 6-24-07). On Nov. 13, 2001, Cheney presented Bush with a draft document on the judicial handling of foreign "terrorism" suspects. It had not been vetted by any staff of any government official other than Cheney's own. After a review of unknown depth and breadth, Bush signed the document as an Executive Order. Secretary of State Powell and National Security Advisor Rice found out about it on the evening news.

It is with profound sadness that I approach this Fourth of July. Coming from a long line of veterans and speaking as an Honor Graduate from the U.S. Air Force Academy, my decision to challenge our nation's armed forces has been a painful one.

The Upside To The Latest Libby Development

For every aggressive maneuver, there are events unforeseen:
The water thrown on the Plame case was actually gasoline.

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ALERT

The real reason Scooter Libby wasn't actually pardoned

Please note the reason for the commuting of Scooter's sentence is so that Scooter can still claim the 5th Amendment in further investigations of Bush, Rove, and Cheney.

BuzzFlash,

It doesn't take the Fourth of July for many of us Americans to understand that we are slowly, but surely losing this great country to greed . . . whether it's greed for money or greed for power . . . it runs rampant throughout our government, and never more openly than during these last six years of the Bush administration's stranglehold on this country.
