DU Melts Down Over Mukasey! LOL!
FROM DU: Mukasey Is Attorney General!
WE ARE FUCKED! Mukasey is Ag! WE ARE FUCKED!!! Every founding father is now spinning in their fucking graves. Tears are streaming down my cheeks as I write this. The only time that I have been more depressed than this is when JFK was killed.
As devastating as that was, this makes his assassination pale in comparison. This congress has just told you and I that this president has the right to torture you or me at his discretion. HE can decide what is torture and what is not. He has already been given the power to pull you or me off the street, declare us an enemy combatant, throw us in the dungeon and forget about us.
THIS ADMINISTRATION IS JUST AS BAD AS HITLER AND HIS REGIME. I WILL REPEAT THAT. THIS GUY AND HIS REGIME IS JUST AS BAD AS HITLER AND HIS REGIME.
YOU ARE NOT SAFE. I AM NOT SAFE. NOBODY IN THE WORLD IS SAFE.
THE SENATE HAS JUST DECIDED TO BECOME COMPLICIT WITH BUSH TO TORTURE ANYONE THAT HE DECIDES IS AGAINST HIS RULE. DO YOU FUCKING GET THAT?
THIS GUY IS A DICTATOR AND THE SENATE HAS BECOME A BUNCH OF BROWN SHIRTS SUPPORTING TORTURE.
THE TIME FOR ANOTHER REVOLUTION HAS COME. DEMOCRACY MUST BE FED WITH THE BLOOD OF PATRIOTS FROM TIME TO TIME. NOW IS THE TIME. (rockybelt)
DU Chimes In:
--Now is not the time to cry. Now is the time to IMPEACH!
--It is not just the Bush administration--congress is complicit... That's right...we Democrats are now torturers, too... And if you think that doesn't matter...trust me, it will to our potential enemies who may take their revenge long after Bush and Cheney have left office.
--Fuckers, I hate them all. Fuck ALL these pigs in power. They deserve nothing but hate and to be dragged from their gated communities golf courses and offices, captured by angry mobs, and their tyrannical heads put on pikes and their bodies stomped into dust. Fucking rich psychopaths and their spineless enablers they are disgusting. Aaargh.
--It means very little. Pick your battles and dry your tears.
--"It means very little"??? "Pick your battles and dry your tears"??? FUUUUUUUCK that shit. America tortures now. Jesus fucking Christ, if you're not angrier than hell or weeping right now, then you're part of the problem.
Honestly, saying shit like that only makes people feel worse. I picked my battles 7 years ago, and it was really nice to find out how many apathetic, do-nothing fucks live in this country proclaiming to be true Americans. And it's come to this. America is a facist fucking dictatorship no better than Hitler's Germany right now other than we have a slightly less body count at the moment.
This is just incredible and still people here at DU are telling us to calm down and 'get over it' and 'chill out'. I'll stop there, because if I said what I wanted to say, I'd be banned.
--Yeah, no big deal... torture smoture. All this fuss over water boarding, just because a bunch of sissies can't handle a few drops of water on the face. So, we now got an AG who will not acknowledge that making a person think he or she is drowning is torture. Just what we need in the Justice Department. Anyone who thinks this means very little needs to WAKE UP!
--I'm angry as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore. I've had it with the craven, pathetic, despicable cowards festering in the cesspools of Congress and the White House. It's time to flush these turds.
--Yeah, he's just an interim war crimes caretaker - no big deal there. Who cares about war crimes? Let's worry about the big issues.
--The U.S. Government, the Republicans, the Democrats, EVERYONE... It will now do no good for us to point the finger at "the other side" and blame them. We, as Democrats, are now just as complicit in torture as Bush and Gonzales ...and just as much fair game for those who may seek revenge for what was done to them and their people in our name.
--Not my government. These degenerate a-holes are enemies of The Constitution. Fuck Congress, Bush, Cheney and their evil cabal. America is dead.
--Mukasey's older than hell, maybe he'll die of natural causes soon.
My, my, someone needs to get these overly-emotional, hysterical children a cool rag for their collective foreheads. I've never heard such exaggeration and doom-making since... well, since the last time the Lefties didn't get their own way! Somebody get some graham crackers and milk--and all those little mats; this group is going to need a lot of naps!
