5. How, in the name of what anybody calls holy
can this be? Gravely injured, unable to live a normal life, the men and women who have served in Bush's war of choice will be discarded by the same people who sent them to battle. The ones who were for the war, as long as somebody else fought it, are now turning their backs on the ones who put their lives on the line, and fought that war.

Has there ever been a regime as corrupt, and completely corrupt as the present one? I don't know of one, and FDR was president when I was born. The government, under Bush, has become an unholy alliance of the religious right, and corporate felons. We, the peasants who pay the salaries of the corrupt, are shut out of all decision making. We pay for all of it.

My life would be complete if the current crop of liars and criminals are sentenced to jail terms that reflect the suffering that the employees of Enron, and the shareholders who lost their life savings have given up in this completely unholy alliance.

When will the rich, and powerful, be held to account for the damage they have done to our country? When will they suffer with the rest of us?
