Apparently, the USA isn’t a democracy

August 13th, 2009 § 2 comments § permalink

This comment is from a Fox News article about the Republican lies about the NHS* (my emphasis)…

by wantmytaxesback Texas

The NHS was conceptualized during WW2. At that point, EVERYTHING was rationed. Food, anemeties…lets not forget that they were getting bombed by the Luftwaffe. I know most liberals are too young to know what WW2 was even about, but that’s ok. You have the internet to educate you. I suggest you do it. Now. There are so many employees of the NHS now that it is near impossible to get rid of. It is a fact of life in Britain. Its unfortunate, really. However, we cannot let that happen in America. We are a Republic, not a democracy. Mob rule does not, and never will, work

You fucking thick twat. Fucking rednecks.

Rumsfeld: The War Crimes Case

November 10th, 2006 § 0 comments § permalink

Donald Rumsfeld could still face war crimes charges. But probably won’t.
As the USA are not signed up to the International Criminal Court. Although Rumsfeld could be arrested on a visit to a country that has signed to it, I imagine that it is ever going to happen, what with who he knows and the grief for the arresting parties.

Anway, only two more years…

Bye Bye Rumsfeld

November 9th, 2006 § 0 comments § permalink

Somehow, the news that Donald Rumsfeld has resigned completely passed me by yesterday.
Lenin has a posted a doodle with a rather good likness.

Rumsfelds’ successor, Robert Gates an ex-DictatorDirector Of Intelligence, probably won’t be much different in substance (oh, what a cynic), but we await to see how he delivers it.

The last quote from the NYT article linked above is nice:

Mr. Bush, meanwhile, was asked at his news conference how he could have been so hopeful of Republican victory in the face of polls predicting such serious losses. His answer seemed to reflect an irritation not with Republican candidates or strategists, but the public.

“I thought when it was all said and done, the American people would understand the importance of taxes and the importance of security,” the president said. “But the people have spoken, and now it’s time for us to move on.”
