A lie is a lie, regardless of your party

If I could change any one thing, I would…

Remind those 29% who (unbelievably) still support President Bush that the man inarguably lied the country into war.

Every once in a while I have an eye-opening WTF moment, like if I wake up in the middle of the night, let’s say, screaming THE MAN LIED THE COUNTRY INTO A WAR at the top of my lungs.

And yet the man remains un-impeached, unindicted, unaffected, really.

Just as disturbing are the “conservative” bloggers who refuse to acknowledge this….it does offer insight into why progressive change takes time, given the difficulty we have at looking beyond pre-conception and personal faith.

Still, I don’t know who gets me more angry, the Administration responsible for the lies or the Democrats who doing nothing about it.

Anyway, if you needed any more convincing now comes The Center for Public Integrity’s analysis; True Blue Liberal provides the details. The Center details “hundreds of false statements about the national security threat from Iraq in the two years following the 2001 terrorist attacks”.  An eye-opener, check it out.

Home Depot? How ’bout Healthy Depot

If I could change any one thing, I would…

Start a ”green” home improvement chain where I could buy natural, non-toxic products to fix my house without killing the people who live in it.

Presidents and Change? What do you think.

What Would Ike Say?….written by Eric Heller…

I’ll vote for a Democrat in 2008. I know, big surprise. Anyone stumbling on this site gets the political drift here. After all, “conservative” means “against change”, and I’m nuts about change.

Anyway, it’s not that I reject conservatives out of hand – truth is there are some things that make sense. But really, what’s “conservative” about the Republican Party anymore? I mean even ol’ Ike must be rolling in his grave. [Read more →]
