Dubya Tells America -You Kids Better Shut-Up or I'm A Gonna Wallop You Again

UPDATE: You see? Bushies are clearly battered children. As per Dan Bartlett, "The president has done nothing wrong..." Do not question Daddy Duyba's actions.

Even if he ignores civil liberties and spies on the American people. If DD does it, that makes it legitimate. DD says to get over it, because it is for your own good.

Clearly the WH denial factor is at an all time high. The nations is not. The Prissy Patriot will return Tuesday.

Prissy hears one more well-meaning person speak of Bush's supporters being unable to walk away from him, much like a battered spouse, you may hear Prissy scream all the way to Great Britain.

As someone with a great deal of experience in this field, it is a poor comparison. The relationship Dubya maintains with his few followers is a much fairer comparison to child abuse. Not just love of country has been abused. Dubya abused his followers religious beliefs and values, then led them to believe he was big Daddy Dubya- coming to take care of America. They depended on him.

Like most abusers, he took advantage of their willingness and vulnerability after 911 and encouraged them to "trust him."

However, when something bad happened to them, according to Dubya's miscalculations, it must have happened because they were "bad." Not because Daddy Dubya failed them... Now Osama's "Back and coming to a town near YOU."

Example: Katrina victims were poor minorities. The mainstream media (now proved false) told stories of murder and rape in the Astrodome. Typical "blame the victim" mentality of most neoRepublicans.

Wait and watch- the neos will cry that they were merely victims when they are caught. It is interesting how they claim to love and revere the country they are destroying with their policies and deliberate incompetence.

Prissy has bad news for them. Nearly the entire country is onto them. Moreover, Prissy means everybody-even the ones who were die hard Bushies are angry and feeling rather foolish. They did not know Dubya meant they would actually be asked to give up their rights. Which means the rest of us can calm down because as Granny says, it will all come out in the wash.

We must however, keep the heat on Congress. They allowed this to happen.

The good news for American justice is that Abramoff has no desire or intentions to do much jail time. Oh no, that is not his cup of tea. He is far too good for that, just ask his Daddy. Do you hear Jack singing? Prissy does... We keep hearing between 20 and 60 representatives will be regretting they knew Jack.

About Osama: There is one theory about him I think Prissy has mentioned before. Most unlikely, but interesting all the same. Bin Laden's brother owns a submarine-bought for a movie he made or helped make. Medical equipment could be maintained on a sub-such as a kidney dialysis machine which he needed to stay alive.

Prissy is putting her chips down on the old boy expiring, years ago.

From Pravda- Why did it take so long? 01/19/2006 It was not surprising to discover that George W. Bush chose to illegally spy on American citizens

Because of this cyclical pattern of American history, it was not surprising to discover that George W. Bush, not satiated by the destruction of civil liberties he accomplished through the innocuously sounding "Patriot Act," chose to illegally spy on American citizens. One lesson of COINTELPRO affirms that whenever courts rule that those in government cannot engage in an activity legally, they will simply engage in such activity illegally. This doctrine is so well entrenched that even the man described as America's "top law enforcement official," Alberto Gonzales, has avidly endorsed torture, detentions without charge or trial, and illegal spying, while hypocritically feigning "offense" when dealing with sexually oriented materials.

Therefore I was pleasantly surprised when, on the holiday celebrating the birth of Dr. King, former Presidential Candidate Al Gore forcefully and courageously denounced the evils of the Bush dictatorship. Gore stressed that while overreactions to real or perceived national emergencies in the past were eventually countered by the realization that the "cure" was actually more dangerous to democracy than the "disease," he also warned that there may come a time when the pendulum stops swinging. If this happens, governmental abuses and contempt for fundamental rights and freedoms will become a permanent part of the American landscape.

From CNN Quick Poll- Friday, January 20, 2006 Has the Bush administration done a good job of putting terrorists 'out of business'?

Yes-29%-58432 votes

No-71%-142842 votes

It is now safe to say that Americans have lost faith in Dubya forever...

More about the latest Osama tape... Duke Professor Skeptical of bin Laden Tape 01/19/06

He thinks bin Laden is dead and has doubts about the tape. Lawrence recently analyzed more than 20 complete speeches and interviews of the al Qaida leader for his book. He says the new message is missing several key elements.

There's nothing in this from the Koran. He's, by his own standards, a faithful Muslim, Lawrence said. He quotes scripture in defense of his actions. There's no quotation from the Koran in the excerpts we got, no reference to specific events, no reference to past atrocities.

While the CIA confirms the voice on the tape is bin Laden's, Lawrence questions when it was recorded. He says the timing of its release could be to divert attention from last week's U.S. air strike in Pakistan. The strike targeted bin Laden's deputy, Ayman al-Zawahri, and killed four leading al Qaeda figures along with civilians.

Lawrence believes faulty Pakistani intelligence led to the strike and the civilian deaths, and the tape was leaked by Pakistani authorities to divert attention from their mistake.

Thank you to Prissy's fellow blogger Pusillanimous Wankers Friday, January 20, 2006 Krugman Day-Stolen from Atrios, who stole it from the ridiculous pay-as-you-go TimesSelect: (Prissy stole it from all of them)

The new prescription drug benefit is off to a catastrophic start. Tens of thousands of older Americans have arrived at pharmacies to discover that their old drug benefits have been canceled, but that they aren't on the list for the new program. More than two dozen states have taken emergency action.

At first, federal officials were oblivious. 'This is going very well,' a Medicare spokesman declared a few days into the disaster. Then officials started making excuses. Some conservatives even insist that the debacle vindicates their ideology: see, government can't do anything right.

But government works when it's run by people who take public policy seriously. As Jonathan Cohn points out in The New Republic, when Medicare began 40 years ago, things went remarkably smoothly from the start. But this time the people putting together a new federal program had one foot out the revolving door: this was a drug bill written by and for lobbyists.

This explains some things... Brain scans reveal men's pleasure in revenge 18 January 2006 by Will Knight

A lust for vengeance may be hardwired into the male brain. Scans of brain activity suggest that men experience greater satisfaction than women in seeing cheaters get their comeuppance,– at least when the punishment is physical. Jan. 20, 2006-U.S. accused of spying on those who disagree with Bush policies by WILLIAM E. GIBSON

Neither you nor anybody in that (Quaker) church had anything to do with terrorism," said Rep. Robert Wexler, D-Fla. "The fact is, the Truth Project may have a philosophy that is adverse to the political philosophy and goals of the president of the United States. And as a result of that different philosophy, the president and the secretary of defense ordered that your group be spied upon.

"There should not be a single American who today remains confident that it couldn't happen to them." La Repubblica scoop Posted by Henry

As various bloggers have noted, the Italian paper La Repubblica seems to have a scoop on the sources of the famous forged Niger documents, and the role played by the Italian intelligence services.

It’s a fact that on the eve of the Iraq war, and under the supervision of the diplomatic advisor to the Foreign Ministry, Gianni Castellaneta (today ambassador to the USA), the director of SISMI organized his agenda in Washington with the staff of Condoleeza Rice, who was National Security Adviser to the White House at that time. La Repubblica is able to document this two track process between the government and Italian intelligence. At least one of these ‘barely official’ [molto poco istituzionali] meetings of Pollari’s was, according to secret service agents, the ‘creation of a system’ that would bring together government, intelligence and public affairs [informazione]. International Herald Tribune- 1/18/06 Tale of Niger uranium sparked doubts early

The White House later acknowledged that the charge, which played a part in the decision to invade Iraq in the belief that Baghdad was reconstituting its nuclear program, should not have been included in the speech and relied on faulty intelligence. Two months ago, Italian intelligence officials concluded that a set of documents at the center of the purported Iraq-Niger link had been forged by an Italian spy.

An Italian spy forged the Niger documents? Prissy needs more proof before she buys into that...

Dearest Readers, State of Belief with C. Welton Gaddy on Air America Radio is great! Walter Cronkite was on last week. He spoke the truth about this administration and the war in Iraq. Walter Cronkite was known as the most trusted man in American journalism. Without Cronkite, we might still be in Vietnam-on the down low, of course. Air America, along with how to listen in your area are here:

Here in the central Ohio area, we can only get Air America on AM radio. Trying to listen to Walter Cronkite talk about the state of the union through the static, reminded Prissy of what it must have been like to be a Russian listening to the Voice of America.
