3. Gerald Posner was great on KO 2-nite. However, I have a beef ..
My beef is with his discussion of terrorist attacking innocent Americans. There are, really, few innocent Americans. Babies and children, I guess, are innocent. We are not. We can vote and speak out .. most of us. Even my felonious brother (not the radiologist, but the other one I love. Busted for pot in the 70's and banned from voting) vents his spleen on the editorial page.

My point is: We are all guilty of the war crimes and crimes of war of Bu$h. We are the 1936 Germans. We are the war criminals of Viet Nam, as described by Bertrand Russell.

We are letting Little Hitler take over our state. When the world turns on the bankrupt USA (as it will, soon), you and I will suffer the same fate as the ardent Bu$h supporters, without discrimination. We are, and have been, totally fucked by Bu$h. It is so much worse than my worst nightmare in 2001 that it takes my breath away.

God have mercy on our country and our souls. Please.

Mac

5. I disagree.
The world will hold us all responsible. Prove to your Chinese masters that you have no part in this shit.

Eh?

6. It's true--yet I hope and believe that the world is smart enough to see

Bush for what he is, even if we do not: a coup dictator,a cheat and rogue NOT ELECTED by us. I hope they have mercy on us, and not hate us for what he does in our name.

Nevertheless, we have to hurry and denounce him and bring him to justice, or what you predict will certainly happen.

7. And I would argue that anyone that is working to try to STOP Bush
and be a resistance factor against his crap is not part of a great unwashed body of complicit citizens.

If you believe that to be so for yourself, fine. I don't. I didn't vote for him but I didn't stop there- I worked for his opponent. I put out as much material, including videos starting from early spring in 2004 about Bush, stood on corners in my town with signs, went to community political meetings, and spoke about this to all I saw. To say that just because I, as one person, was not able to prevent this criminal from getting into power is ridiculous.
