    I’ve hanging around here since way before Marcy came and went. My money is on her integrity. Greenwald has done great work, along with Poltras. And they have angered some serious people. I think they are brave as hell and won’t be bought OR played. And CTuttle, I’m with you about the piling on by [...]

    Bill Nye will be fine. And Ham trying to tie morality to his God is crap.

    I doubt Obama would. As he says, he has evolved. I watched the Bork hearings. He was an arrogant prick then, and nothing has changed.

    The Bush administration told them it was SAFE to work there. They lied every step of the way to downplay it. And how to put this politely, bmull? The fact that you come across as a total dick, I mean. Best just to say it I think.

    You are right about guys across this country doing dirty jobs for low pay and no benefits. Because THEY gave an inch, and corporations have taken a mile. If you won’t fight for one, you won’t fight for anyone.

    And there are a shitload of cancers that happen very quickly, and the worse the exposure to chemical or nuclear disasters, the quicker the onset. But you know that.

    I am an average Joe taxpayer. This should have been done years ago. But the Bush administration had ‘other priorities’ than patriotism. So peddle that crap somewhere else.

    Onward and upward guys. See you there.

  • No matter how much the Bush admin apologists try, they can’t make honey out of the dogshit way they handled this entire mess. Stay on their asses, Marcy. Makes me proud to donate to the cause.

    I seem to have at least one conversation a day about these bastards and how much I hate them. The owner of my gym describes me to newcomers as their resident angry old man.

    Look man, we all agree the sentence is not enough. If you want ‘frontier justice’ then by all means try administering it on the frontier, in public. Don’t rely on deviant sociopaths to do your work. Knock YOURSELF out if you feel so strongly. Shame him, humiliate him in public daily, fight for his disbarment, post his crimes on every light pole in his neighborhood. Confront him on the street. Have at it. He should not skate.

    I’ll engage you. Seems we should just skip this whole legal process and get to the outcome you like, huh? Nobody is happy about this chickenshit one month. But it is a big deal on the beltway if he actually has to do the time. I personally would like to see a bunch of these assholes lashed, but it is not going to happen.

    But prison is prison, even for a month. The door slams and that is it. You can’t do anything for the people you love, or to the people you don’t. You can’t do anything unless they allow it.

    And as someone who as actually been there and for more than a month, I can tell you that what you hope to happen to him should not happen to anyone. If you think that is about justice in prison you are just full of shit. It is about the strong exploiting the weak. And if there is no one around that fits your definition of needing ‘more justice’, then just anyone weaker will do.

    And there are enough pricks like you working FOR the prison system that a blind eye is turned many times. So fuck off. You get sentenced to prison TIME, not prison rape, beatings and all the other shit that goes down in there.

    A month is not enough, but what you seek is too much. I saw too much of it for a much longer time. But you learn to do only YOUR time, not someone else’s. You learn to shut yourself down, get up in the morning with the goal of trying to make the day go as quickly as possible. To be on guard and aware of your surroundings. And hope that when you finally get out of there, you can bring back the part of your soul you have suppressed for so long.

    You don’t need to be banned, you need to be ignored. You might want to be careful talking all that shit in public, you might mouth off to someone who had to put up with shit for a long time, and do not have to hear it from a wannabe like. you.

    The entire Bush administration was scared to death that Libby’s wife (a Democrat if I recall) would go ballistic and talk out of school if poor Scooter spent as much as 1 minute in jail. If Scooter actually told his wife the truth about his job. Which I doubt. But if so, and if Bloch told his wife the truth it may be embarrassing or criminally incriminating if they do talk.

    Better question is if they do know, why are they staying married to these assholes? Other than the ghost of Martha Mitchell.
