"We read headlines in the paper or online and call that news. But news is happening every day everywhere out of sight of cameras and reporters, and its effects are just as impactful. "

"I wasn't trying to re-litigate the Iraq war here. Just saying that W doing these paintings is like OJ painting Ron and Nicole and presenting it to their families. Coming clean is the only proper response. W isn't looking any better in…"

"W said on the radio during his first campaign that he wanted to go to Iraq, people just weren't listening. I lived in Florida then and Jeb was governor so he may have felt safer saying it there. I only heard it once, though."

"At this point we have a President so bad that Bush’s reputation is improving drastically which, let’s face it, is awful. We went into Iraq on completely phony pretenses. In early 2001, I had a conversation with a young man who had…"

"I saw those same images, Phyllis. There's something off about them. Coming clean is the only solution. For him, and us as a country. Nothing can end until that happens."

""I don't want to hear your bullshit. I want to hear you're sorry." So that was said to me, actually (even though she's not speaking to me)."

"War is like the wind," she said on a whim. "No one knows where it comes from or where it starts. We just hope it doesn't blow our way. And then one day it's over and gone, and we are left wondering if and when it will return."



"I saw the President today, oh boy. Many people are angry with him. He seemed fine to me. I didn't understand a word but he sounded brilliant. Life's too short to be angry all the time.… Continue

Agreed, with one or two qualifiers. We R fucked, have been for quite some time, if you believe what Sheldon Wolin says in Democracy, Inc, and it's kinda hard not to if you have a couple brain cells to rub together. Now, as to how and why we got to where we are... do you really think the American people are self loathing? Self loathing presupposes some level of self awareness, the ability to understand why one does the things one does or at.least to understand that those things are bad, but after observing Americans for decades, my take on us is that we tend to be - in effect, when viewed collectively, even though quite a few of us are perfectly nice as individuals - smug, complacent, selfish, vicious motherfuckers and a whole lot of other stuff too, but aside from some bleating immediately after 9 1 1 to the effect  of "why do they hate us?" I haven't noticed much if any handwringing or introspection about who and how we are, still less any genuine sense of guilt or self-hatred for the atrocities daily committed in our name so we can have more Bluetooth speakers and 2017 V8 Dodge Challengers and carrier battle groups and all the other rewards attendant on generating the world's grossest national product. 

Wow. My apolyogies about the uber-long sentence there - I looked and looked but couldn't seem to find any appropriate places in that sumbitch to break it into more manageable segments...
