The way the Republicans operate is truly evil and wicked, is it not?
I think most of us saw that very clearly in the way McCain used "Joe, the Plumber (Joe Wurzelbacher)", and how it was just another cooked up scheme by the Republican Party that shows without a doubt that John McCain is every bit as sinister, criminal and nasty as Dick Cheney and George W. Bush ever were. McCain says he not like Bush but clearly plays the same evil, contoured games and same exact stunts that the current Administration always used. They go find a dumb Joe sixpack - parade him about as the average Joe, even as it's obvious that registered Republican Joe can't pass the smell test.
Now we see this in the news:
President Bush Asserts Right to Control Iraqi Oil
WASHINGTON, Oct 16, 2008 /PRNewswire-USNewswire via COMTEX/ -- President George Bush this week rejected a Congressional effort to bar the United States military from controlling Iraq's oil resources.
Before signing a military funding bill earlier this week, the president issued a "signing statement," barring any expenditure of funds to "To exercise United States control of the oil resources of Iraq."
The Friends Committee on National Legislation, a 65-year-old Quaker lobby, has worked with Congress for three years to pass legislation that bars the United States from building permanent military bases in Iraq or exercising control of Iraq's oil resources. "We are dismayed that the president would deny the Iraqi people and its government the basic sovereign right to control their own natural resources.
A religous organazion that knows what Bush is doing and knows that it pure greed and complete evil, so perhaps there is hope for humanity after all.
Iraq should not fear saying NO to George W. Bush and stalling for time - it should fear saying YES to him alot more. Bush can be a pretty nasty guy indeed but if Turkey can say NO to Bush, if Pakistan can say NO to Bush as well as Saudi Arabia rejecting military troops and contractors, than Iraq can do the same.
This is why we should tell T. Boone Pickens - NO WAY. I'm sick and tired of big oil's dominion, it's cause nothing but trouble. This is why we didn't vote for Bill Clinton and his wife Hillary and why there seems to be a brewing civil war against oil barons and their ilk which may be closer than we all realize to the kind of civil war we had over slavery. It is time to move beyond fossil fuel completely. We already have the technology to do it - we must do it and that time is now with this next election to take a scalpel to sections of big oil that will eventually leave them like a junked out old car in a bygone salvage yard of yester-year.
UPDATE: Protesters march against proposed U.S.-Iraq pact
BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Thousands of people marched in central Baghdad on Saturday to protest a proposed U.S.-Iraqi security agreement that would extend the presence of U.S. troops in the country after the end of the year.
Bush and McCain don't care about democracy in Iraq, they never did - only that oil and nothing else. The Bush Admininstration is going to end up escalating violence in Iraq all over again trying to force the signing of greedy Western oil contracts upon the Iraqi government and it's people. Iraqis want us out and we don't have enough money to keep troops in Iraq any longer so now is a very good time to declare victory and get out. Nancy Pelosi should NEVER have taken impeachment off the table because Americans need to get Bush and Cheney out of that office in order to prevent a violent Iraq from remerging and to put an end to an expensive occupation there.
