Fuck this guy. Cheney is a vacuum of credibility. A black hole. He is a liar and a thief. He and his cronies profited immensely from the war in Iraq by engaging in fraud perpetrated on our own troops and we the people as often as not. Haliburton and KBR. You think this guy gives a mad fuck about you?
Yet he deigns to flatter us with his opinions by the hour, or so it seems. Who exactly does he think he is? What new arrogance is this? Dude, you were the Vice President and most of us agree you sucked. Go away.
The CIA isn’t exactly a pillar of truth, justice and the American way these days. They, both the CIA and Darth, deliberately “fixed the facts to fit the policy” that led us into one of the most unjust wars in history. Can you say Downing Street Memos? Nonexistent yellowcake uranium or mobile bio weapons labs that turned out to be balloon trucks? The Keystone Cops in color.
This guy gets on TV.
They tortured in fact, to gain and supply reason and rationale for that very war. With every fiber of my being and every ounce of conviction I can summon, I say fuck these guys. Furthermore, I invite Dick Cheney, with zero respect due, to shut the fuck up and go away.
Or, we get to waterboard the prick bastard. I’ll settle for either and sleep soundly.
Dear Dick, You suck. Please vanish. Go gentle into that hot cave.
Fear, fear fear. This is a mess created by our former arsonist laureate, the Dick-in-Bush administration. “…if we continue to make decisions within a climate of fear, we will make more mistakes…..” -President Barack Obama. Cheney calls Our Man’s policies, “recklessness cloaked in righteousness”. I can’t help but wonder just what Darth Cheney knows about righteousness.
The past administration swore up and down that we did not torture. Upon that lie of extraordinary magnitude becoming as common as the knowledge that one should avoid using motorized garden shears for personal grooming, they try to convince us that torture kept us safe, was justified and wasn’t really torture but “enhanced interrogation techniques”. My guess is Cheney’s next career will be in real estate. You know, bridges, swampland, timeshares in Baghdad, that sort of thing.
Or maybe the latest incarnation of Swamp Thing.
I am in awe that this douchebag Cheney is able to command any attention at all. Why is anyone even listening to such a notoriously full of shit, black hearted blowhard? Why? He’s been wrong about everything, caught in more lies than Baron Munchhausen and he should be in goddamn Leavenworth.
It’s all smoke and mirrors. It’s all they’ve got. Fear wrapped in the worn gauze of some obsolete notion of security. That’s it kids. There’s nothing more to see here. It is exactly as it appears. Move along please. Please.
Understand, this man, our President, has more on his plate than you can possibly imagine. The tasks he faces every morning require superhuman effort, attention and acumen. Most of what our man struggles with in the shower, the great unwashed are willfully ignorant of.
This guy is inside a cat 4 tornado and he doesn’t need Dick Cheney’s irrelevant shit right now. If Darth were an actual patriot, he would pull a fade starting now. Cheney, of all people is intimate with the toxic pile he and that little monkey left behind.
This subject of torture has become far too convoluted. Too nuanced even. It’s simple.
Torture is immoral because it is cruel and inhumane. At the very least it pollutes the soul of anyone who orders it and any who would administer it. We must understand that these people, these candidates for and of torture, are human beings. Right or wrong, these people believe what they believe just as fiercely as we do. Under the last administration, anyone who believed differently than you or Sean Hannity, could literally be tortured for disagreeing, whether they knew shit or not.
Surveilled. Wire tapped which means computer tapped. ……..anything you say, can and will be used against you in a court of law……..
Torture is unethical because the result is at best dubious. With resolute men, the decision about what they are willing to disclose, even when faced with death, has already been made. Count on such men to spew crap when tortured. It’s useless. Even the economy of the concept is bankrupt. They think it’s a game of Stratego.
Drinks for my friends.
