Go ahead, deny. Call me a "conspiracy theorist" and worse. I had gobs of that after 9/11 when it was an unforgivable offense to impugn Bush. One critical remark was justification enough to heap scorn on surviving family members of 9/11, expel college students, fire teachers, ban Dixie Chicks, condemn Michael Moore, etc. I couldn't sell a book. This was the "wisdom" of American idiots crapping their pants ("Brown alert issued today ... "), and it was highly repressive. (I even left the Internet for two years to live in the forest like an Indian, with no radio or television, to rid myself of painful toxic political stimulation).
Back then, I used to say that America is so addled and corrupt, it's a wonder the lights stay on.
A few years later, the proles desire "change" desperately, pine for "hope" as the wars rage on, the economy self-destructs and the culture is overrun by jingoistic, ferret-like, flag-waving, pathologically dishonest, anti-intellectual little hitlers who believe they have a Sprint line to "God."
BTW, where are apologies from the Bush voters? They carried on as though promoting Bush, lying for Bush, torturing for Bush, killing for Bush was a moral imperative. Now that these self-defined "patriots," ah, ignorant asswipes, know what they are, no apologies. They headed straight for McCain, condescended to the rest of us - as if their judgments were not impaired or their opinions asinine ("McCain has more experience," "Obama scares me"). Insult our intelligence, please.
The well-off Republicans have no trouble destroying their own country inch by inch to turn a fast profit - yet advertise themselves as "patriots." This is the way of the fascist crustacean. Time passes, the Dixies are vindicated, teachers go back to work, anti-Bush sentiments are everywhere, even in the Republican Party - I'm proven not to be a "theorist," after all. Anyone who assumes otherwise hasn't a clue, is a fascist collaboratorl, a Good German (just returning the imprecations directed at me a few years ago), and I'd laugh all the way to the graveyard if the consequences of mass ignorance and suicide weren't so grim. But go ahead, "conservatives," dress in the flag and drool all the way to the unemployment office, you "sensible," "sober" establishment fantasy dwellers programmed by the CIA/corporate media.
A few years from now, I'll he right here giving you my middle finger as the lights go out.
" ... In 1970 ... Paulson entered the Nixon administration, working first as staff assistant to the assistant secretary of defense. In 1972-73, Paulson worked as office assistant to John Erlichman, assistant to the president for domestic affairs. Erlichman was one of the key figures involved in organizing President Richard Nixon’s notorious “plumbers” unit that carried out illegal covert operations against the president’s political opponents, including espionage, blackmail, and revenge. ...
