Hodgepodge

I simply think Harriet Miers is a ruse.

The Patrick Fitzgerald investigations make me wonder who the Bush Regime pissed off. They are plucking off the Lieutenants and Generals surrounding the chiefs. It's as if someone said, you are not in charge, we are and you will feel our power through these investigations. Already, Scooter Libby and Tom DeLay both have been indicted, while Bill Frist is being investigated for insider trading.

Who will be next? What about Rove, the man they call Bush's brain?

What about the culpability of Bush? Excerpt from Truthout: Legally, there’s no significant difference between the fraud perpetrated by Enron CEO Ken Lay and the prewar intelligence fraud perpetrated by George W. Bush. Both involved persons in authority who used half-truths and recklessly false statements to manipulate people who trusted them. The difference is this - the presidential fraud is wider in scope and far graver in its consequences than the Enron fraud.

What about Cheney? I know there are rumors floating around about his resignation, but shouldn't he be indicted too and sentenced to jail?

While Americans are being preoccupied by the Bush Regime, we are still feeling the economic impact from Katrina, Rita, and now Wilma.

We are being gouged by the Big 5 oil companies. They made a $364 million profit, when gas prices peaked over the summer. Quarterly results from Exxon Mobil Corp., BP Group, Royal Dutch Shell, Chevron Corp. and ConocoPhillips, show a $32.8 billion in net income in the three months ending Sept. 30, according to Marketwatch. The industry's profits are now so bloated that they're becoming problematic. Big-oil behemoths are making out like bandits, while the average American family is getting killed by high gas prices, and soon-to-be record heating oil prices.

We are facing rising insurance (health, auto and homeowners) and other basic utilities costs, while the US is embroiled in the corruption from the White House.

Finally, lest not forget about the environmental impact of our actions. The government should take into consideration the impact on the environment of waste removal. Surely, the hidden life of garbage is having an adverse effect upon global warming. This year alone, there have been 23 named storms and the Republicans are having a hard time believing that there may be a connection between the frequency and the severity of hurricanes and global warming in spite of mounting evidence (National Geographic and Science) that hurricanes around the world are intensifying and perhaps being driven by global warming.

The corruption and abuses continue while we watch the circus...
