Wave That Flag Wide and High For Freedom, Justice, and the American Way
Now McCain supports Bush’s veto of the bill banning waterboarding, claiming, in essence, that although it’s not right, nor just, nor ethical, nor appropriate for the military to use torture techniques (techniques which McCain himself endured as a POW), it IS certainly permissible for the CIA to use those techniques. Or rather, not be limited to the Army’s roster of acceptable torture practices (waterboarding is not on the list).
And it was just yesterday that I told me stepmum that although I didn’t like McCain, at least I wouldn’t be embarrassed if he was my president.
Waterboarding – a technique favored by the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia and the Burmese government. Gosh, the US sure does know how to pick its bedfellows, eh? .Ain’t ya proud? Let’s all stand up for the red, white, and blue. Wave that flag wide and high as a beacon of freedom and justice.
In the meantime, the Dems continue to shoot themselves in the foot with bickering, and a show down over delegates looms in the offing.
I despair. There is no hope for U.S.
