Subject: RE: BS: CIA torturers (God Bless America)
Oh, that's a very well-stated righteously indignant rant.... but it simply mixes some fact with your own opinion..." the whole US political system from top to bloody bottom" is NOT a complete fuck-up.
The basics of it served quite well for a couple of hundred years, and much of it still has many pluses. In order to respond to your broad brush, I have to 'get precise'. No one STILL gets it that Obama "and his 'minions'" are not letting anyone "get away with it" (And Obama would be bemused at the idea that he has 'minions')
You don't specify exactly WHO are "a penny-ante bunch of shysters."... the bankers? The politicians? The military?... I'm sure there are some shysters in all those places. Don't you in the UK have your share? When you criticize YOUR country, you are usually specific.... Blair, Cameron...even Thatcher sometimes still. But let the US do something to upset or frustrate you and it's all rotten from top to bottom.
And just HOW do you propose we " start to clean the shit out of a considerable number of bodies."? WHICH bodies? Have I not detailed the complex political steps necessary to do that? Or do you relish seeing us in another form of Civil War?
I can deal with reasoned, analytical and **helpful** comments, but righteous,sarcastic finger-pointing gets old, dontcha know?
