The Incredible Lying BushCo

Does anyone really need proof that Bush and Co are lying the world into ruin. All these quotes have proved to be false.

"This is a man that we know has had connections with al Qaeda. This is a man who, in my judgment, would like to use al Qaeda as a forward army." -- President Bush, Oct. 14, 2002

"Yes, there is a linkage between al Qaeda and Iraq." -- Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, Sept. 26, 2002

"There have been contacts between senior Iraqi officials and members of al Qaeda going back for actually quite a long time." -- National Security Advisor Condoleeza Rice, Sept. 25, 2002

George W. Bush and his entire senior administration lied, and continue to lie, flagrantly, openly, knowingly, with full intent, about the need to drive this nation into a brutal and unwinnable and fiscally debilitating war, one that protects no one and inhibits no terrorism and defends nothing but BushCo's own petrochemical cronies and political stratagems.

A Few Words From Dubya

Rarely is the question asked: Is our children learning?: George W. Bush:

For every fatal shooting, there were roughly three non-fatal shootings. And, folks, this is unacceptable in America. It's just unacceptable. And we're going to do something about it. George W. Bush:

One of the great things about books is sometimes there are some fantastic pictures: George W. Bush:

I glance at the headlines just to kind of get a flavor for what's moving. I rarely read the stories, and get briefed by people who are probably read the news themselves. (September 21, 2003) George W. Bush:

"Every great institution is the lengthened shadow of a single man. His character determines the character of the organization." (Ralph Waldo Emerson)

Remember This...

"America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter, and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves." (Abraham Lincoln, 1809-65)

"I knew that I could never again raise my voice against the violence of the oppressed in the ghettos without having first spoken clearly to the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today -- my own government." Rev. Martin Luther King. 4 April 1967

"It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything." (Josef Stalin)

"He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, science for him the spinal cord would fully suffice. This disgrace to civilization should be done away with at once. Heroism at command, senseless brutality, deplorable love-of-country stance, how violently I hate all this, how despicable an ignorable war is; I would rather be torn to shreds than be a part of so base an action! It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder." (Albert Einstein)

Saddam back with old friends

We Finally Got Our Frankenstein... and He Was In a Spider Hole! -- by Michael Moore
Moore makes a brief but frank comment on the capture of Saddam Hussein. Reminding us that, like the other regimes supported by the U.S. (Shah of Iran, Somoza of Nicaragua, Pinochet of Chile to name a few), Saddam was aided and abeited by various U.S. administrations. Corporations supplied weapons and components the U.S. government supplied satellite photos allowing Saddam to locate and kill even more of the common enemy.

Remember This...

"The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundnce of those who have much, it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little" : Franklin Delano Roosevelt

"Cowardice asks the question - is it safe? Expediency asks the question - is it politic? Vanity asks the question - is it popular? But conscience asks the question - is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular; but one must take it because it is right." ----- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

"Actions are held to be good or bad, not on their own merits, but according to who does them. There is almost no kind of outrage-----torture, imprisonment without trial, assassination, the bombing of civilians-----which does not change its moral color when it is committed by 'our' side. . The nationalist not only does not disapprove of atrocities committed by his own side, he has a remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them."
-----George Orwell
