21. What more can we do? Feels like we have been fighting this battle foever
& alone. Meanwhile our powers as US citizens have been chipped away, while the damn dems remain pasted to Bush's ass.
I feel like Mel Gibson in 'Braveheart'. Christ, its gonna come to that yet.
Schumer, Feinstein and Who else voted this to the Senate?

What more can we do when our own Congress reps refuse to hear the warnings from the world.

7. Torture - The American Way
As long as we're torturing and as long as Bush and Cheney get away with it - then America IS a war crime nation with a war criminal executive.

40. The dialogue has taken a huge leap forward with this issue. Bush is a lawless junta.
The only part they are not yet getting to is the JUNTA part. Next, to focus on how the law breaker got into the White House in the first instance.

89. Am I agreeing with Lindsey Graham? I think I am! Except for his disconnected vote!
Edited on Tue Nov-06-07 11:07 AM by WinkyDink
Dang! He just gave an argument against torture, and now he's voting for Mukasey!

101. yes, solly mack, this decision is truly sickening.
I unfortunately can see * smirking his head off, god, the man is at 24% what does he have on these Senators??? or do they know what a nutcase he is, and just giving him what he wants and in the meantime we and our country is vastly deteriorating.

94. Lindsay Graham perplexes me
He seems to, frequently, vote against/support positions contrary to his own very strongly stated intellectual and moral beliefs.

98. What do they have on him?
Rumor is that he is gay. That would most likely end his career if it comes out.

If you think we need another thread, please start it. I'm not sure if its worth it or not.

Thanks!

107. The Rs are making hay on the Feinstein vote. They just love creating wedgies.
We need to remember, Feinstein and Schumer are Dems first!

108. Let's say they vote to ban water-boarding(such bullshit)
and then what next? What next method of torture will they have to ban 'specifically' because all of the sudden, no one knows if ripping toenails out is torture or not?


See the game? See the bullshit?

Bush is just so pleased right now

111. "saving American lives" is such a lame excuse for torture. It is false reasoning.
The way to save "human lives" is to not be a nation that kills people, invades nations, tortures political prisoners, and thinks in terms of "us" and "them" or "terrorists" instead on one human family.

119. Have at it. I'm not and have no reason to respect him. He's just endorsed
torture in my goddamn name! Does that mean you disrespect the majority who don't want him confirmed?
