Rice gets a subpoena- she ignores it. It, along with the entire subject, disappears. Gonzo gets a subpoena. He ignores it. It, along with the entire subject, disappears. Cheney, Rove... all the other players have that piece of paper waved at them, and they kinda chuckle and flip the bird. It, along with the entire subject, disappears.

Waxman, Conyers, etc. Hearings, TV cameras, questions without answers, past treasonable actions slip by because of faulty memory chips, and that's okay because NEXT WEEK WE'RE GONNA CALL (fill in the blank here) and THEN we're gonna get some ANSWERS.

Talk. Nod and wink. Smirk. Play the game, sweat a little for the people to see, then go back to work and screw the nation some more. No biggie, 'cause we're finally doing something about it.

Riiiiiight.

So here come those who say "No, no, we're really finally DOING SOMETHING. Just have patience, little boy- you obviously don't see the big picture."

A-yep. Small steps, Ellie. An inch at a time and before you know it they'll all be in jail, smirking outward from behind the bars.

You will, please, pardon me when in my ignorance and naievite I state I simply do not believe it any more. It's bullshit. One hundred percent Grade A horse hockey.

The days of "He's TOAST" are over. The heady times of "We're back in charge so THINGS ARE GONNA HAPPEN NOW, OBOY" lasted all of one hundred hours. The moment of belief in the possibility of ending an unjust, bloody war has been flung back into our collective face, hidden no less by a deceptive parliamentary trick devised by OUR OWN PEOPLE.

They simply do not care. They do not recognize that it is WE who signs their paychecks. They do not acknowledge that WE are their employers. They do not care that it is OUR nation they are helping to send into utter chaos.

Which is why I tell them now to pay attention. I am only going to say this once, but I say it with all seriousness and damn it, I refer to the Democrats AND the Republicans.

Listen up. It's coming down to this.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,

That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

NOW do you understand? We The People are serious about America. We are also serious about you and your inactions. We understand that inaction IS action, and for you to go against the principles we hired you to uphold is to PISS US OFF.

And I'm getting pissed off.

Am I alone here?
