Illegal Immigrants Seek Amnesty a la Scooter Libbey

The Everyday Citizen had his best laugh of the year this AM. Through Yahoo! I get alerts whenever something is posted about Bush or Cheney. (Inquiring minds want to know). I am house sitting for friends who left yesterday for a Caribbean cruise, and I’m really digging staying in a house that has 4 baths, a swimming pool, and enough bedrooms to get lost in. An old Coon like me enjoys sitting on the deck in the early AM hours with a good cuppa and plenty of birds to cheer his morning. But I digress…

Every thinking person in this nation must wonder what the Bush administration is trying to hide with the commutation of I. Scooter Libbey. One of my biggest bitches is that the current administration seems to think that the entire population is stupid, or operating on blind faith. With the current debacle in Congress of Harriet Miers refusing to show for a congressional hearing, you have to wonder what the hell is going on. On Saturday, July 14, Andy Borowitz, reporter for Creators Syndicate, reports that illegal immigrants in this country are trying to seek amnesty the same as Libbey did. They will plead guilty to perjury so that they can cut a deal. Plans for figuring out how to raise the $250,000.00 for a “get out of jail free” card is taking up a lot of time in Congress.

This is very funny to me. Political pundits have always poked plenty of fun at politicians, but in this administration there is much truth to some of their comments. He who would be king has made a laughingstock of this nation of ours. It seems Congress, and the American people, follow along like blind sheep, doing nothing more than rant as I do. I have to ask myself what CAN be done? Nothing more than impeachment and total abolishment of the current administration can cure the current ills of our great nation. It appears Bush is unstoppable, and Congress does nothing but whine. We, as American citizens, deserve more…

Possibly everyone is waiting to just ride out the rest of this lame duck administration. I am thinking that every politico knows where the bodies are buried, and need to watch their own backs. Can you imagine what it is going to be like for the new administration coming in 2008? The mess they are going to have to clean up, and the length of time that will take? And in the meantime, funding for services, healthcare, health research, and every single program or think tank that benefits the American people goes on hold or is abolished to feed Bush’s war machine. How sad…

Drive on…
