Move on Idaho!

Move-On must have too many members for Bushco’s usual shut-up tactic--arrest. And while Congress is unwilling to stop the Iraq fiasco, they are able to express outrage at the Betray-Us ad. I suspect some Dems joined in because Move-On actually expects them to remember why they were elected.

But Congress must have missed the editorial cartoons which were equally as revealing of the “Petraeus Show” underwritten by none other than Little George.

While Bush supporters are found everywhere in Idaho, elsewhere citizens are sick and tired of recycled lies and destruction for the sake of oil and money. Many have expressed support for Move-On’s right to free speech as quoted on their site:

“I'm currently in Iraq. I do not agree with this war...You have the RIGHT to speak the truth. We KNOW that you support us. Thank you for speaking out for being our voice. We do not have a voice. We are overshooted by those who say that we soldiers do not support organizations like MoveOn. WE DO. YOU ARE OUR voice.”

“...Wearing a uniform does not mean someone isn't a shill, spewing propaganda, and downright lies. MoveOn has every right to buy an ad and say what they want about a public figure. This administration has lied to us, deceived us, misled us and when posed with a challenge this is how they respond? –Keith G., Va.

As for me, I am sick and tired of obnoxious loudmouths who are so bereft of independent thought that they repeat GOP talking points over and over. Hey, some of us knew they were lies the first time we heard them; they don’t impress us any more coming out of different mouths.

There is even uncanny evidence of the spread of Bushspeak: “I'm tired of hearing liberals accusing conservatives of questioning their loyalty, which we have not done, ...and yes, I do question the loyalty of some of the Democrat leaders and even some Republican leaders in Congress of disloyalty.” John Thiebert.

While I may be accused of being politically incorrect, I feel that those who continue to support this administration despite the lies, misuse of power, death-dealing and unprecedented future burden are as guilty as the originators. That includes General Petraeus.

Experience keeps a dear school, but fools will learn in no other...Benjamin Franklin
