I've been trying to avoid political entries. I'm no expert. I do, however, feel I have a right and a need to participate when folks are supposed to be representing me. I just updated about the trip to Portland, from notes I wrote earlier. I watched this earlier today.
I am really annoyed that there's any question that Bush overstepped. For whatever reason. I'm so sick of this whole offended stance at the fact that it was outed. Yet where's the outrage over Karl Rove outing and possibly endangering a real person with a name and a face and suffering no reprocussions from it? There are steps that need to be taken in a 'free' soceity before invading homes, phones and E-mails for *whatever* reason. Don't probe me and tell me it's for my own safety. I thought that Republicans were supposed to be about *less* government? To their favor, there are more and more in that party getting annoyed with his antics. I'm done with the Dems, too. What have they done but respond to these outrageous things? Make a move, dammit! I'm going to get more into the Greens. I'm so tired at voting for who's been bought at the highest price.
Also, why was there a question whether to use torture? How can you denounce another nation when you're willing to use the same tactics. Time and again, there are studies showing torture doesn't get you much more info than forceful interrogation. What's the price of the info you get that way? I can't remember who suggested it, but I agree that the tainting caused by the very fact of receiving info from authorized torture sort of makes it less valuable.
Okay. I'm done.
