"Cherish, therefore, the spirit of our people, and keep alive their attention. Do not be too severe upon their errors, but reclaim them by enlightening them. If once they become inattentive to the public affairs, you and I, and Congress, and Assemblies, Judges, and Governors, shall all become wolves." Thomas Jefferson

Dumb Ass: –noun Slang: Vulgar.
a thoroughly stupid person; blockhead.

I have not been around much, I apologize. Even though my life is hectic and chaotic and extremely stressful, right now, I have managed to pay attention – I have just not had the time to blog. I am not surprised that there is more bullshit from the dumb asses, not surprised at all.

It was fun to hope that the new Democratic majority, as a result of a midterm election that seemed to have surprised the Whitehouse, might lead to some kind of compromise. It was nice to think, if even for a minute, that I could breathe easy for a little while, knowing that this Administration was in check and that they might seek some kind of common ground with the people.

After-all, it was the people who spoke on November 8th. It was the people who said, “we want a change in Iraq, we want the troops home.” It was the people who said this and it was fun to believe, for just a short while, that this Administration might take the message sent by the midterms and remember that they work for us.

I find it impossible to believe that this Administration and their minions really believe that a troop surge is the right thing to do or that it will be helpful. I find it impossible to believe that this Administration’s Republican ass-kickers in the Congress cannot see the truth of what is occurring in Iraq. I find it impossible to believe that the “troop surge supporter’s” connection to reality has been so severed that they cannot see, or hear, how contraindicated that a troop surge is.

This leaves me with the only conclusion that I can come up with: they are lying and they are dumb. Period.

We all understand that the Whitehouse has absolutely no intention of leaving Iraq as long as they are in office. No intention.

“Surge” is simply a way for the Whitehouse to reframe the debate to convince the last 20% of their supporters that this is temporary and to attempt to make the Dems look bad. There is no concern for Iraq or for the Iraqi people. This American occupation of Iraq has never been about ‘liberating’ the Iraqis.

The American occupation of Iraq has been about oil, war profiteering, power grabbing, redefining the presidency and being able to continue war crimes – it has never been about the Iraqis. The Iraqi people are nothing more than cannon fodder at best, just like the 20,000 troops that GW plans to send in as a ‘surge’.

This surge bullshit is too little too late. This Administration has never listened to the generals, as they claim. GW has performed as a petulant, spoiled, little brat – his entire history shows that he only wants to get his way – there are too many reports that he only listens to those who tell him what he wants to hear. How else does one explain the mass exodus of generals, secretaries and staff pouring from the Whitehouse?

Biden thinks the Administration does not know what to do. Biden gives them more credit than I – he is assuming they actually want a solution. Biden assumes that this Administration wants a way to insure “democracy” or “stability” in Iraq. I doubt this – there is more money to be made from constant chaos and endless war.

It seems like there are fewer and fewer people left who support a troop surge, or who support more war in Iraq. Fewer people who think that this is “winnable” or that we cannot leave until the “job is done”. Lieberman, McCain, Bu$hCo and some of the whiny followers like Sessions and Hatch. There are not many left.

The secret letter from the soldier shows what life in Iraq is like. It is not pretty and it is not tolerable. Will Jenna and Barbara be part of the 20,000 surge? How about the war president himself? Will he be off to Iraq to help “secure the peace”?

The soldiers do not want a surge of troops. The veterans do not want a surge of troops. The American people do not want a surge of troops. The Pentagon does not want a surge of troops and neither do Iraqis. The Dems will not support a troop increase.

It is over. No more. No more death and destruction in my name. I am done and the people are done.

I do believe that we are just being fed more bullshit from the dumb asses. Disagree? So sue me.
