Hope Ya Don't Mind

So, I leave for a couple of days on vacation and California catches on fire. And now all that smoke has traveled across the desert and landed here in Las Vegas. Like we need more smoke. So, I'm closed up in my house trying to rub the bloodshot from my eyes.

I see Dick and his daughter Liz are back at again. Maybe I should just start calling them Dickliz because they essentially say the same thing. "Who me - Torture?"

Here's what Dickliz said on Fox News in response to the planned investigation of the Attorney General, Eric Holder.

“I knew about the waterboarding, not specifically in any one particular case, but as a general policy that we had approved,” said Mr. Cheney, who noted that neither a gun nor a drill had actually been used on detainees. “The fact of the matter is the Justice Department reviewed all those allegations several years ago.”“The judgment was made then that there wasn’t anything that was improper or illegal,” said Mr. Cheney." - Ny Times

Yea right ... You know that gets me thinking. There's a great bit of dialogue between two characters in the movie Oliver. Bill is talking to Fagin.

Bill: Have you ever heard the sound a chicken makes when they're wringing it's neck? ... They squawks. Not a very pretty sound."

Fagin: No Bill.

Bill: And then they die, don't they?

Fagin: Yes, Bill. I mean, no, Bill.

Bill: Then, they say, some even start squawking before the event. They get what you might call a premonition. You wouldn't be having no premonition of that sort by an chance, would you?

You ain't gettin' no premonitions of that sort are you Mr. Dick Cheney? Is that a bit a squawking I'm hearing? Of course, I meant it as a metaphor and wish no harm to Cheney family. I'm a peace loving guy.

Mr. Cheney described the inquiry as an “intensely partisan, politicized look back at the prior administration” intended to placate the left wing of the Democratic Party. “It’s clearly a political move,” he said. “I mean, there’s no other rationale for why they’re doing this.” - Ny Times

Well, Mr. Cheney I got some questions of my own for you and President Junior that have nothing to do with torture, but I suspect are crimes none-the-less.

Question Number One: Why was CIA plane carrying cocaine and heroine for Mexican drug lords? - AFP "Mexican drug plane used for US renditions"

Question Number Two: Why were nuclear armed missiles transported, unknowingly to North Dakota? - Arkansas Online "Air Force punishes 70 in accidental nuclear-weapons flight"

Question Number Three: Why did we use a chemical weapon (WMD) on Iraqi civilians and who gave the order to use this weapon? BBC News - "US used white phosphorous in Iraq"

Question Number Four: Who knew Jeff Gannon and why was he in the White House? Washington Post - "Jeff Gannon admits past 'mistakes'"

Question Number Five: At the Republican convention in August of 2008, how did the police obtain information on potential protesters and why were those houses raided? Furthermore, who gave the command to arrest reporters covering the protests? Star Tribune - "Police Raid RNC protest sites in Twin Cities" and Democracy Now - "Host and Producers arrested at Republican convention"

Question Number Six: "Who gave the order to shell and bomb the hotel in Iraq housing reporters?" Guardian UK - "US tank shells hit media hotel"

Question Number Seven "Who gave the order to assassinate Italian reporter Giuliana Sgrena in Iraq?" CBS News - "Italian Journalist U.S. Lied"

There are so many more questions to ask ... but I think we know the answer to all of the them. Mr. Cheney - you have blood on your hands and no matter how hard you wash them they're stained forever
