Dear President Bush… 2

As the end of your term in office approaches, you are now beginning to reflect on your leadership through one of the most controversial presidencies of all time.

Project for the New American Century is dead

In Wall-Street-Bank fashion, The Project for the New American Century (PNAC) is effectively finished (Except it has been extinct for 2 years now). If you’re unaware of what PNAC is, from their website: “The Project for the New American Century is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to a few fundamental propositions: that American leadership is ...

Economic Roulette 1

In this article, the small-government proponent and Libertarian Ron Paul discusses why he thinks the government shouldn’t meddle in the economy when government fiscal policies created an inflated and unsustainable housing market in the first place. Paul thinks the free markets should face reality and let the situation sort itself out, otherwise he thinks the ...

What to do in Iraq? 2

With former President Jimmy Carter calling the Bush Administration the “Worst in history”, I figured today’s topic should relate to the war in Iraq. A lot of my readers credit me for complaining about the U.S. involvement in Iraq, but like many other people covering Iraq, I haven’t provided any alternative solution to the war ...

“War on Terror” or “War for Terror"? 3

President Bush went to Iraq to free the Iraqi’s, to destroy Saddam’s WMDs, to protect America’s freedom and to make peace in the Middle East.

In his role as an “Economic Hit man” (EHM), Mr. Perkins’ job was provide ...

Legal Rights? What Legal Rights? 2

Today is a dark day in the world. Once again, President Bush has single handedly changed history and set the world down a grim path. He has signed S. 3930, the Military Commissions Act of 2006 into law, giving the United States power that goes against the Geneva conventions, defies the US Constitution, and in ...

Bush regrets cowboy rhetoric

From this Yahoo News article, referring to a recent White House news conference along with Tony Blair. In unusually introspective comments, Bush said he regretted his cowboy rhetoric after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks such as his “wanted dead or alive” description of Osama bin Laden and his taunting “bring ‘em on” challenge to Iraqi ...

Bush on a tear

There is no stopping this Texas cowboy. He is on a rampage and his global bullying policy isn’t stopping with Iraq. Even while Iraq is escalating into a potential civil war, the US debt is reaching an all-time high; Bush is still spewing his venomous threats toward Iran. Bush preaches using diplomacy to resolve the ...

Bush Admits Intelligence failures

This is an admission worthy of historic significance. This blog has vehemently insisted in the past 2 years that Bush admit that the intelligence used to build the case to invade Iraq was all wrong. Years went by with Bush defending, sidestepping, twisting, ignoring, and insisting that the intelligence was correct. It was vital for ...
