Neo-Con Lasts 6 Seconds of Waterboarding

There was never any doubt in my mind that waterboarding is torture, plain and simple.  I have seen it done in Vietnam and I knew instantaneously how cruel this act was.

Mancow is a conservative radio talk show host who in the past has repeatedly ridiculed the idea that waterboarding rose to the hieghts of torture.

To prove his point he volunteered to let himself be waterboarded in front of media camera's.  He changed his tune about the subject in a quick but terrifying six seconds.

Listen to the man as he has to recant his right wing belief that  waterboarding was not torture.  Proving as most sane people already know that Cheney is a fraud and a liar that has cost Americans their lives.

In contrast to submerging the head face-forward in water, waterboarding precipitates an almost immediate gag reflex. The technique does not inevitably cause lasting physical damage. It can cause extreme pain, dry drowning, damage to lungs, brain damage from oxygen deprivation, other physical injuries including broken bones due to struggling against restraints, lasting psychological damage or, ultimately, death.  Adverse physical consequences can start manifesting months after the event; psychological effects can last for years.

Quasimodo Wouldn't Speak at Notre Dame, Should Obama?

I wonder why Notre Dame is receiving so much flak for inviting Obama to speak at a commencement?  Shouldn't these people be protesting against the colleges practice of pervasive discrimination.

Twenty five percent of the yearly enrollment at Notre Dame is set aside for the children of the alumni.  These legacy preferences allow entrances not based on merit but on ancestry and cronyism.  Ask Quasimodo he will certainly tell you a thing or two about discrimination.

Face Up To It

When the answer to a question that is being asked everyday is staring you right in the face, rather than recognizing that fact, it seems better to deny the obvious and ugly truth of the matter.

The question being raised by all the talking heads on the cable news soap programs, and even by legitimate major TV news organizations, by newspapers and blogs left and right, during this month has been who is the face of the Republican party?

In spite of how apparent the answer is,  the question is usually responded to with stock answers, like Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh or Steele the Republican party chairman, or by some other meaningless blather.

All the while the real face of the Republican party Dick Cheney can be seen crusading on radio and television talk shows from the Dakota's to the west coast at least once or twice a week if not more.  His need to come out of the closet after eight years of law breaking and shredding the constitution, in the name of the constitution is most remarkable.

While avoiding interviews that may pose a threat to his far right talking points.  He manages to defend his past illicit tactics and has no problem breaking precedent to denigrate Obama any chance he gets during his propaganda puppet shows.  Appearing with soft ballers and mostly right wing hosts and on fox he avoids any rebuttals or follow ups, and gets away with saying whatever he wants, doesn't matter if its true or false, he speaks with total impunity.   

It is my opinion that the true hardcore right wing kneels before Cheney.  I say this with confidence because the numbers back me up.

When asked in a recent poll of Americans only 23% would identify themselves as Republicans.  More than 23% of Americans believe in ghosts. This is about the same percent of the Republican party that is loyal to only the far right, and Cheney is a neo cons dream. The Life and Career of Dick Cheney

It is also my opinion right now, Cheney an American politician who was sworn into office to uphold the constitution and help his fellow man, allegedly he has easily surpassed even the treachery of Nixon.  In time history will change this from merely my opinion to a fact. Cheney the Vice Precedency 

For a clear perspective on Dick Cheney click on the links above, they are very well narrated and informative slides, they are also very short and get right to the points of this post.
