“I'm thinking T*lt never enjoyed goodnight bush in his life.....probably gets squeamish at the thought.”
“Perhaps he prefers a shave-tail.”
“No, t*lt likes to fry children.”
“LMAO. Stewart NAILS it. Vid at bottom of page.
“LOL@noncon - tilt's a eunuch.”
“Silly Libbies LOVE to hate BUSH.”
“Turdblossom fans ----”
“Don't forget to visit "Turblossom Gardens".
Be on the lookout for Karl Rove fertilising the yellow roses and muttering something about a 'permanent stain.'”

“Stovie compared to PrezBO Bush was a genius.”
“Scratch a libertarian and find a Stoneage Reaganite.
Perhaps during your Decade of Greed you were too busy trying to play Thurston Howell to notice.”
“Poor little libbies. They are stuck with Obamy.”
“No Stoviet, you are stuck with Obama.
I like the prez.”
“You can't borrow your way out of dept”
“We're having to borrow our way out of a Recession not debt, goofball! < G >
And if George and the rest of his idiot friends hadn't started the faked war and all that other crap we'd be in a much better position to counter this.
Where did all that goddam money go?
What has the Columbia County Armageddon RV been doing for the last seven years? Mobile Superbowl parties?”
“Here ya go ----- The REAL Torture Memos. And bush appointed one of the primary authors to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. File away the name Jay Bybee for future ref.
If they #&%!$ you up in the Ninth... You really Are #&%!$ed.
Read them for yourself:
“Tilty..the Ninth Circus? You talking about the appeals court that actually reversed itself within two hours? Yeah ruled one way on one case and another way on the next case.
UM Tilty I know this will come as a shock but the ninth circus is the most overturned court in the land.”
“You prefer using a baseball bat, right?
A wooden bat so you can put it through the chipper?”
“WTF? Baseball Bat? NO I prefer to let the Executive Branch do it's job. Apparently the "EXECUTIVE BRANCH" feels there is not enough evidence to pursue a case.
Its the way the Constitution was written..stangely the American Criminal Leadership Union does not seem to get that.”
“Whose wood chipper did you use?”
“t*ltypoo prefers to use a deep fat fryer for children.”
“I'm glad they released those. They sure were dealing with a potential intelligence gold mine with Zubaydah. He surely had information about plots that could lead to many innocent deaths.
I'm heartened to see that those involved with his interrogation were extremely concerned about operating within the law. They had me right up to water boarding. I'm glad I didn't have to make this decision.

“hmmm, borrow your way out of debt! Don't call the terrorist terrorist...but call our exmilitary members and abortion haters here in America terrorists
Great choice guys!”
As was the case with Nixon, Bush and Cheney will almost certainly get off scot free. After all, the Rule of Law only applies to The Little People.
Hopefully the situation for Addington, Yoo, Feith and Bybee may be different. Per Obama's declaration, they were not close enough to the action to get a pass. Perhaps for all the damage they did to the nation they might at least be disbarred. Unfortunately, that's probably the most we can hope for.
“Mexas better divide into five states with 10 senators to keep George off the gallows, eh?”
“Remember when the Rebublicans used to call themselves the Law & Order Party?
I still find it completely astounding: how the spinelessness of Bush combined with the depravity of Cheney, given free reign by the events of 9-11.
And now it's the War Crimes Party.”
“Or just don't pay your taxes. Instead of being call a felon, you can become a high ranking member of the current administration. Why is this scandal not a scandal?”
“Noprob, your point proves that Progressives have no morals or principals and must therefore be irradicated from pour political system. Progressives will sell out in order to gain power. That;s what the tea parties were about, no more seelling out.
What do you believe in Tilt? honesty? abiding by the law? not a chance tilt, you have absolutely no say so on this matter because you won't call out the progressives when they break the law.
How bout Charlie Rangle? Tim Geitner? Chriss Dodd? Barney Frank? Franklin Raines? They are all criminals who are up to their necks in this screwed up economy and haven't even held a real jobs...but yet they're all millionaires.....hmm, that's weird.....oh but they're down with the working man, right?
You are therefore a liar, Tilt and an elitist and people are smart enough to see through your hypocracy. They are beginning to wake up from their apathetic slumber and that's why you are so aggitated by the like of Sarah Palin and people like me who go to tea parties.”
“Listening to the TWO sides of american politics is way more fun than spending time comming up with any solutions to america's woes, isn't it polarites.
Even the churches have proven that nothing is exempt from being taken over by crooks and hypocrites, that is just how larger scale organizations are. You both are making list and checking them twice, but to be nice you'll both need to find something in common that will allow you to realize this argument has been going on for hundreds of years and the final solution is right before your eyes-Less growth, thus a lot fewer people.”
“Let's see, torture suspected terrorist or socialize the whole United States. Which is worse?”
“Cheney said he wanted to "fight fire with fire" but it never occurred to him that in so doing you become what you're trying to eradicate.”
“right tilt, cheney = sadaam
get a grip. your posts are giving you the creditbility of sarge. i'm truely beginning to see everything you post as a joke.”
“Cheney and his fellow conspirators didn't bother to consult people who had actual interrogation experience when they came up with this crackpot policy.
Nevermind that it's illegal and makes us all look like criminals ---- It doesn't work! Under those conditions the subject will tell you anything. The information gained is completely unreliable. That's what the professionals say time and again.
You wonder why so many hundreds of people have been released from Guantanamo? They never should have been there in the first place, based on the kind of garbage intelligence collected in this manner.
It's a whopper of a Stupid Criminal story.
And what about all those people at Abu Ghraib who were court-martialed for following these orders? They weren't allowed to call the Bush Admin. people to testify and Bush Inc. kept calling them "bad apples". Just more lies. And Bush/Cheney left them all to twist in the wind.
So what happens to them now? New trials? Pardons? Or will they let 'em rot for following illegal orders?”
“leaving people twist in the wind for following orders is chicken #&%!$, i agree.
as to the interogatrion techniques, there are also professionals that say it works. you act like the only real professionals are the ones who share your point of view. not all infromation gathered has been useless.
the fact so many have been released could also signal they let the people go when they should. not saying it does, saying it could.
legal/illegal, i don't know enough about the whole ordeal to say. i feel quite confident the information being released to the public is only part of the story. i have a brother who works for nsa and so hear different points of view. not any specifics, but different points of view.
you come across as if you only look from one point of view and demand it is the correct point of view.
there's more to it than i know.

“How naive do you have to be to trust that crap about "they know something they're not telling us" after seven years of that bull#&%!$?
(Sorry, but I have absolutely no reason to trust your brother, either.)
The only information they've held back would incriminate them further. That's the clear pattern. You still think they'll still find a hundred thousand tons of nerve agent under the sand?”
“waterboarding is mean......lets just puddingboard them instead”
“there's been a lot more than 7 years of bull#&%!$. try a century. i'm not naive about it. do i think there was nothing wrong going on? no. but i also am not so hard headed that i believe all was for naught.
you don't know my brother, i don't blame you for being skeptical there. the only thing he has ever said about it to me is that some good info comes out of it. he says nothing more. not even if he agrees with it or not. he's not allowed to talk about it.
i have no idea what they'll find buried where or when/if they'll find it. they'll probably find nothing more than camel scat. i'm getting the feelig you don't either.

“Those guys aren't going to be able to travel outside the US except to Israel, Dubai and Saudi Arabia.... and maybe the Iraqi Green Zone.”
“Obama is neutering the CIA just like Clinton did. Expect another 9/11. I woke up with a giant spider in my tent. I did not consider it torture.”
“The people who favor this type of behavior always seem to be Bush Administration creatures as previously discussed, pundits and rightwing media types while career military interrogators say it's unlawful and counterproductive.”
“I guess you are excluding the four directors of the CIA in your analysis, Tilted.”
“I always wondered how in the world things happened in pre-war Germany.... how messed up people would have to be to allow things like that.”
“I don't know if the sadistic fantasies are real or just Internet posturing.
Either way..... not good.”
“Too bad there isn't a way to just fry the great-grandchildren of people who talk the coalmining industry line. Everybody loses, unfortunately.
“Meanwhile back in the Magnolia State of Mississippi, you've got all the lovely folks down at the
Harrison County Juvenile Detention Center.
Who said you needed to be shipped to an unnamed Eastern European Prison by a Republican
president to experience conditions like that? Nah.... just head on down to Biloxi.
(but you have to be under 18 to get into the party ---- uinless you're one of the the guards)
“Good work stovie, just 1.53X 10 to the 14th more 'great-grandchildren' post and you'll surpass you record number of 'silly libby' post.”
“I wonder where he saves that post? He seems to have all of Tilt's colorful posts close at hand. Sounds a bit like...
