Lies that imperil us all

Olbermann to Bush: a resounding “Fuck you“.

Here here.

Meanwhile, from Kevin Tillman, who’s brother Pat was killed in Iraq:

Somehow those afraid to fight an illegal invasion decades ago are allowed to send soldiers to die for an illegal invasion they started.

Somehow faking character, virtue and strength is tolerated.

Somehow profiting from tragedy and horror is tolerated.

Somehow the death of tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of people is tolerated.

Somehow subversion of the Bill of Rights and The Constitution is tolerated.

Somehow suspension of Habeas Corpus is supposed to keep this country safe.

Somehow torture is tolerated.

Somehow lying is tolerated.

Somehow reason is being discarded for faith, dogma, and nonsense.

Somehow American leadership managed to create a more dangerous world.

Somehow a narrative is more important than reality.

Somehow America has become a country that projects everything that it is not and condemns everything that it is.

Somehow the most reasonable, trusted and respected country in the world has become one of the most irrational, belligerent, feared, and distrusted countries in the world.

Somehow being politically informed, diligent, and skeptical has been replaced by apathy through active ignorance.

Somehow the same incompetent, narcissistic, virtueless, vacuous, malicious criminals are still in charge of this country.

Somehow this is tolerated.

Somehow nobody is accountable for this.

  1. A significant amount of the policies and action of the George W. Bush administration are Un-American.

  2. I had never heard on the news such a direct and forward message, my first, but am 100% with it and glad people are speaking up – the beauty of a demcratic country.

  3. You can’t hate George Bush. Remove him and place a Democrat clone, and not much will change. Heck, even Dennis Kucinich couldn’t do much.

    We , collectively, as a people, must start building the best planetary communications Network, to foster understanding, debate, share new ideas, have activist communities really get organized, even reach out to the “other” who ever you may not agree with..

    Olbermann does not offer anything but bitching, so FUCK YOU KEITH, as we build THE SEMANTIC WEB.

  4. Thank you for sharing this powerful and important video. Olbermann provides so much more than a “fuck you”. Labeling this articulate speech such does not do it the justice that it seeks.

    Being brave only matters when we are afraid.

  5. Although Speech is an action in-and-of-itself, it is critical the We have “DARPA” like Military Capabilities to Wage Peace.

    Otherwise, as Stephen Batchelor said regarding certain flavors of Buddhism, it is just “idle acedemic chatter”.

    Well, I think Everybody is Right on this one, as “problems” have a multi-faceted, multi-dimensional aspect, and We Humans can only see certain parts.

    Thanks to this great Information Web, we can learn much from each other.

    Still voting for the Repugs, though!

  6. God, I love MSNBC’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann, it’s probably the only show I watch aside from the Colbert Report and the Daly Show, though it’s not fake news, it’s more like a rude of awakening, he’s blatant and to the point. He unafraid with his statements and very succinct in his arguments. What he talks about is sad and true but I can’t help laughing at the hypocrisy and corruption he reveals, it’s like dark humor.
