While We Still Have Time

In spite of the grimness of the times in which we live, there is still hope. If you feel, like I do, that the usual discourse about matters of critical concern tends to be superficial, misguided, and false, then you might find some solace and inspiration here. I will try to offer insight and a holistic perspective on events and issues, and hopefully serve as a catalyst for raising the level of dialogue on this planet.

I was born in 1945, shortly before atom bombs were dropped on Japan. I served in the U.S. Army from 1968 to 1971. I earned master's degrees in Economics and Educational Psychology, and certificates in Web Page Design and as a Teacher of English as a Second Language. I followed an Indian guru for eight years, which immersed me in meditative practices and an attitude of reaching a higher level of being. A blog post listing the meditative practices I have pursued can be seen here.

Truth matters

It would be amusing to watch the haplessness of the Bush criminal regime in its response to the "Russian" invasion of "Georgia," were the suffering and death involved not so serious. A good read on the BCR (Bush criminal regime) haplessness is Zachary Karabell's analysis on Huffington Post, titled Bush's chickens come home to roost.

So the Bush criminal regime is caught flat-footed, bogged down in its criminal occupations in "Afghanistan" and "Iraq." Surprise, surprise.

Actually, it is no surprise. When a criminal gang is placed at the head of "the world's only superpower," disaster is not only predictable, but inevitable. The skill set of criminals is crime. International diplomacy and statesmanship are not. When you hire criminals, you hire them to commit crimes.

In all the handwringing that is going on about "American" impotence and incompetence, there is plenty of blaming going on. For sure, the entire "Republican" party is a criminal operation, and has enabled the Bush regime in its various schemes. The corporate news media has played an ancillary role, providing propaganda cover. The large corporations that have benefited from the Bush regime's various crimes are the money enablers.

But in the immediate, I believe two culprits can be singled out for culpability: Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. They have known for years that the Bush regime is a criminal operation, but have repeatedly declared that impeachment is "off the table." When they first made this declaration, I actually defended them, believing that it would take more time to let the idea grow. I didn't think they would give Bush a pass until he is out of office.

There of course are others who have erred in giving the Bush criminal regime any credibility or support. There should be a sap of the year award for "Georgia" president Mikhail Saakashvili. He actually believed that the Bush regime would back him if he invaded "South Ossetia." He should have read a bit of recent history. Saddam Hussain also thought a Bush regime would support an invasion, in his case, "Kuwait," in 1990. Trust a Bush, and you will live to regret it, if you live at all.

At this point it might be a good idea to impeach Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. If they had actually done their jobs and pushed for impeachment, the "Russian" invasion of "Georgia" likely would not have taken place. The "Russians," knowing that the Bush regime is a gang of criminal bunglers, have the advantage of predictability and control of events.

The "Russian" invasion is not grounds for impeachment by itself. It is merely the latest fiasco generated by the Bush gang and its incompetent criminal approach to world affairs. As Ron Suskind points out so eloquently in his book The Way of the World, truth matters.

Here's a little light reading on the "Georgia" situation. Here's some more.
