re: possible grand jury indictments of members of the bush admin
"I know there's a component of my response that says "God, wouldn't it be great to get those smug bastards." But if i'[sic] a decent person, my true motivation has to be justice for the Plame outing and getting rid of these people who are so low and sleazy and destructive to what America has built."
to what america has built....to what america has built.
let's review some of the things that america has built:
institutionalized white racism, destruction of native america nations, world-wide modern imperialism born on the backs of africans and east asian peoples, institutionalized poverty.
to name a few of my favorites. america is no dream nation where everything was wonderful until the republicans came along and screwed it up. it was not founded on a premise of equality for anyone other than the wealthy white males who didn't want england telling them what to do--they wanted to be the new england and tell the masses of labor below them what to do.
america is not blue vs red. it is me vs you, and all i want, i want for me.
and until the democrats see that, they'll continue to be the same as the republicans. but i'm not holding my breath.
