we don't torture

We don't torture people here in Amurrriccca. We slap, simulate drowing, waterboard, sleep deprive, use sensory deprivation, force prisoners to endure freezing temperatures. But we don't torture.

According to our beloved leader (the Shrub), we just interrogate, and we get some pretty darned good information too.

Thank god the government is there to keep us safe. I am so happy they are willing to act like a third world dictatorship if need be, just to make sure the bad guys don't get me. I sleep so much better knowing there is no depth this administration will not sink to in order to "protect the people".

Whatever happened to decency? Whatever happened to the idea that the ends DO NOT JUSTIFY the means??

Even if the ends did justify the means, don't insult me by lying about it. That is the thing that annoys me most about this administration, the lying, the cover-ups, and the utter subterfuge.

Heck, it ticked me off when Clinton said "I did not have sex with that woman," and that is not even in the same sport (much less league) as what this administration perpetrates.

I agree -- Clinton's lies were about his personal, private life. Once it was clear that he didn't abuse the power of his office, and didn't spend our tax dollars inappropriately, that should have been the end of it. Did he lie to us? Hell yes. But should he have been placed in that position? No.

Now Bush is lying to us on a regular basis. He is lying about things directly related to his job, and to the Office of the President. He lies to Congress in ways that are illegal. This is our business, and Bush should be held accountable.
