I'm too sick to joke about the Vice President's cavalier dismissal of his near manslaughter. I am furious at the unbelievable level of horror being perpetrated in our name in sovereign nations around the world, but most especially in Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. Here is a link to the newly released photos as well as to a video that I can't watch.
How is it that the citizens of these Relatively United States don't rise up en masse and demand immediate resignations before criminal proceedings against the entire administration begin in earnest? How can we sit idly by, staring at American Idol, while the nation we have made is ground into the shit and the mud by wealthy industrialists whose disregard for life is plainly evident?
It is time to gather together in our towns and cities and formulate plans to exercise true democracy. It is long past time to raise the black flags, Patriots!
