Neck Deep By Robert Parry

Robert Parry's new book Neck Deep: The Disastrous Presidency of George W. Bush is now on sale. I just ordered it, and I hope you'll consider doing so too and maybe even sending Parry's website some money. Parry is one of America's greatest investigative journalists, and has really put himself on the line to do the work he does.

AND: Check out Parry's recent piece, "If the Democrats Want to Win..."

I don't think I could tolerate finding out more ways that bush has destroyed our country, but since I have figured out that we are a failed state, I have a lighter attitude to all my activist work - I know it doesn't matter anyway, so I just do it for the fun of it.

And think about moving to Canada before the shit hits the fan.

I did look at "If Democrats Want to win" and I have to say - they don't.

I work with the local and state Democratic party and they want me to come to a meeting about "resolutions" that the party will or won't pass - about what direction our country should be headed - and the only remaining resolution I can think off (we passed impeachment and out of Iraq a while ago, including having the state legislature file articles of impeachment) is a resolution saying that we should act on our resolutions.

I live in North Carolina, the leading torture state - but it is the Repubs that do that. The Dems only talk about how bad they are.

Castro please, please invade Florida and give Bush something to THINK about. That in and of itself should fuck him up! As for the Democrats, well all I have to say is give up on them. At least the communists acted on their convictions for better or worse. And they didn't need billionaires to help them either...
