Show Feinstein-Democrats the Door

It should be quite obvious by now to everyone, that we have a serious problem in the legislative branch of our government. Disappointment, disgust, and anger have destroyed all of the expectations we initially had for our recently elected democrats ability to actually bring about change. It is painfully obvious, that our legislative branch is the home of one bird with two very similar wings. This is not to say that there are not a few genuine progressives in the House and the Senate. There are of course a few, but there are only just a few. The rest are corporate democrats, whose true allegiance is to their corporate masters.

Corporate democrats use a progressive agenda as a smoke screen to distract from their missions of service to big business. Any crumbs that happen to fall from the table to benefit the people of the United States are purchased with massive legislative or tax gifts to Corporate America.

So when we clean our legislative house next year, we need to clean the entire house. It is not just the Republicans who need to be shown the door in the next election. There are also quite a few Democrats who need to join the ranks of the unemployed. We need to examine all the candidates, what their records are, what they stand for. We need to let the Republican like Feinstein-Democrats know that their days are numbered. And most of all, we need to make sure that all our representatives know that if we elect or reelect them, that they will be held accountable for their actions. Demand a government that can govern and representatives who will truly represent the will of the people. We have only our chains to lose and the world to win!

Our 21st Century Tomas deTorquemada

Rising from it's centuries long slumber, The Water Cure is resurrected by our religious madman, George Bush. Five hundred years later, we debate the obvious, we debate what was already decided during the Spanish Inquisition: Waterboarding is torture. Insanity and Christian religious extremism are alive and well in the 21st Century.

The Water Cure

The accused woman lay naked on an escalera, a ladder tipped so that her head was lower than her feet. The torturer had stretched her out to her full length and bound her tightly. Iron prongs held her jaws open. Her nostrils were stopped, allowing breathing only through her mouth. She struggled, but her bounds permitted little movement, and days of relentless questioning had left her exhausted. The torturer draped a piece of linen loosely over her open mouth. Jugs of water lined a nearby wall. Read entire article here.
