Why do the words "Cheney" and "prison" go so well together?

1. One thing they missed is the abuse of prisoners that resulted in
at least one inmates death.

3. Can somebody create a big rubber glove that says "Why the F!@# didn't you wait a few months?" and
use it to slap the shit out of whoever brought these charges against Cheney?

I mean really?? What kind of a *&^%$%^&* idiot would bring charges against anybody in the administration right now? Worst case is a fail because the case would be lost. Best case is to convict this asshole right before W pardons him. What are these people thinking?!?!?!

5. Maybe Cheney wants dirt to come out now, SO he can be pardoned by Bush. ...n/t

6. I actually did considre that, but Cheney strikes me as somebody
who would assume that they would never get prosecuted, so he would not go down this route intentionally. IMHO

4. Cheney and Vanguard
Cheney was most likely heavily invested in railroad stock too. He knew that if we went to war, the railroads would reap huge benefits from goverment contracts. Cheney was a board member for Union Pacific Railroad and they are HEAVILY invested in Vanguard. I know this because I use to work for the railroad. Cheney is a monster.
