worth watching

Bill Moyers on PBS tonight, 8:00 central time, an investigation into why the press bought the Iraq war. Even this tiny little clip is infuriating. I believe our lapdog press ~ not the Muslim horde ~ is the greatest danger to democracy today.

It makes me especially angry to read and hear my progressive brothers and sisters loudly proclaiming the stupidity of the American people in swallowing the runup to the war and supporting it for so long. It pisses me off because we were spoonfed the lies which justified this war from the beginning and for that I blame the press. The timing was perfect, coming on the heels of 9/11, because we were terrified, heartbroken, grieving.

Shame on the spineless pussies passing for journalists these days. And for the record, I was opposed from the beginning, thought it was all about oil, and took tremendous heat from my detective coworkers for being an unAmerican, traitorous socialist. There's no satisfaction in being right, just immense sadness as the death toll rises every single day.

Don't get me started girl, ever since the first fuzzy photos of whatever the hell they were suppose to be that were identified as WMD, I was screaming fraud and being told that I was unAmerican. I can't laugh now because a lot of people were lied to, did what they thought was their patriotic duty and died so that that criminal GWB could conduct this illegal war.

I read your stuff and I just dance the dance of glee! I too was an unAmerican and even had a death threat made against me! All because I didn't want us to go to war. Sigh.
