History Repeating Itself?

An interesting lttle observation I thought I should share with y'all: Nazis in our midst: 1933, Hilter burns down the Reichstag and blames it on terrorists. Over the next decade, slowly, the German people are solidified into a mass of hatred and outrage. Bush, after "terrorists" attack the WTC, and with little reverence for those who died, stands on a pile of debris and human ash, grabs a megaphone and proceeds to spew hatred and revenge and death. History will look back on that speech as truly chilling. Schwarzenegger's father was a Nazi. The Bush family made part of its enormous fortune supplying Hitler with supplies. Bush's GREAT-grandfather made a small fortune selling bullets to both sides of WWI. Oh no. Never kid yourself. Regardless of the flag-waving and baby kissing, the Bush Family is a group of self-centered manipulators whose first and last concern is for themselves. Of course this includes those who can enable them in their pursuit of power and wealth, first and foremost being the citizens whom they need to lie to in order to get elected to the positions that opens the Horn of Plenty.....the wallets of the poor and middle class.

BUSH MISLEADS ON GLOBAL WARMING

=============================== THE DAILY MIS-LEAD =============================== BUSH MISLEADS ON GLOBAL WARMING Campaigning for the presidency in 2000, George W. Bush promised to place mandatory caps on carbon dioxide emissions to control global warming. After he assumed office - in what was widely seen as payback for the energy industry that helped finance his campaign - Bush quickly reneged on his pledge. Bush claimed such regulations were inappropriate because there was no clear scientific link between human activity and global warming. But last week, a report signed by Bush's Secretary of Commerce Don Evans and Secretary of Energy Spencer Abraham, concluded, "rising temperatures in North America are due in part to human activity." The report found that global warming was already causing draught, damaging farms and changing migration patterns. Nevertheless, the Bush administration is still content to do nothing. John H. Marburger, the president's top science adviser, said the report has "no implications for policy." Bush himself denies that there has been any change in the administration's position. Asked by the New York Times to explain the switch, Bush replied "Ah, did we?...I don't think so."

Rumsfeld Misleads about Prison Abuse

" Yesterday in Phoenix, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld claimed that there was no way that he and other top military officials could have known about the abuse and torture that took place at Abu Ghraib and other prisons.
