Will Cheney Rat Out Bush?

Now that The New York Times has finally come out for a full on war crimes trial, naming Cheney et.al (but not Bush?) it’s only a matter of time before justice is served. Looks like “enhanced interrogation” is about to get a new definition. The old one.  It’s a curious omission not to have included The Decider into the mix though.  Very curious indeed.  I can just see Cheney trying to cop a plea by giving up Bush as the “mastermind” behind the whole ordeal!  Maybe it’s just my fantasy.

On the Event of His Death

I joined the Army two days after the 9/11 attacks. I joined the Army because our country had been attacked. I wanted to strike back at those who had killed some 3,000 of my fellow citizens. I did not join the Army to go to Iraq, a country that had no part in the September 2001 attacks and did not pose a threat to its neighbors, much less to the United States. I did not join the Army to “liberate” Iraqis or to shut down mythical weapons-of-mass-destruction facilities or to implant what you cynically called “democracy” in Baghdad and the Middle East. I did not join the Army to rebuild Iraq, which at the time you told us could be paid for by Iraq’s oil revenues.

Rita’s Last Letter to “Mom”

When Rita found out her chemotherapy at the Hemer Lung Clinic was not as effective as she had hoped, she walked away from the treatments (against doctors advice) and she opted  to take a more ‘natural’ approach to her death than that which the medical profession would have preferred.

Enough Already!

Giving Up on Radiation and Chemotherapy

It was at that point that I started working on her rationalist eulogy and she started working on her last letter to her mom.  When she finished writing it, she gave it to me with the following caveat:

“If my mom treats you with dignity and respect upon my death just hand her this letter and walk away.  If she treats you like a criminal and disrespects both my wishes and your dignity, then do whatever you can to make sure that EVERYBODY sees this letter.”

The full letter is available for public viewing at the bottom of this post.  The following is some expository information I have added as ‘bonus’ material.

How long does it take a dozen regular folks to refute the most insane arguments of the Christianist/Dominionist agenda?
