<p>You know, I try to keep politics out of this thing.  I have enough to complain about, and piss off enough people just talking about everyday life.  But I am really saddened and disgusted by what is going on around here.  </p>

<p>Bush, Powell, Rumsfeld, Cheney, they took us for a ride. </p>

<p>Please tell me how Powell can show detailed pictures of &#8220;known chemical munitions factories&#8221;, <a href="http://www.cnn.com/2003/US/02/05/sprj.irq.powell.transcript.03/index.html">scaring the world</a> (well the gullible US citizenry, apparently) with visions of truckloads of anthrax heading to a mall near you, and then after we go in and take over, we can&#8217;t sniff up a <a href="http://www.cnn.com/2003/US/05/30/nyt.kristof/index.html">single gram of the shit</a>?</p>

<p>I was in support of the invasion, of removing the Wacky Iraqi, based on the Powell&#8217;s assertions that they were making, and in possesion of, Bad Stuff.  But it&#8217;s all a crock.  The United States has invaded a country and siezed its oil production resources.  I haven&#8217;t seen anything like this since, uh, Iraq invaded Kuwait!</p>

<p>And I&#8217;m sick and tired of being bullied by the right, accused of being un-American for distrusting our government and questioning its motives.  You don&#8217;t agree, you think the stuff was there, you actually think Iraq had anything to do with 9/11, fine.  I don&#8217;t.  And that does not make me un-American.  It means I&#8217;m a thinking member of society, who does not choose to believe everything spoon fed to me by a manipulated media.  Maybe you should look in the mirror.</p>

<p>Have a look at <a href="http://spinsanity.org/columns/20030528.html">this</a>, and then keep your eyes peeled to that site for more news and clarifications, as this continues to unfold.  &#8216;Specially since you won&#8217;t find about it from the majors; <a href="http://www.philly.com/mld/philly/business/columnists/5937914.htm">tomorrow&#8217;s &#8220;vote&#8221;</a> marks the the beginning of even more control over what we read, see and hear, by exactly the same kind pf people who are running this country like it was a game of Risk.</p>
