[Government Run Amock]

April 18, 2008

This is a copy of a letter sent to Scott Moxley at the OC Weekly.


Now that the can of worms is open and we are all beginning to wonder what kind of a country we are living in that makes some of us guilty, thrown in prison, and tortured until dead, for doing the same thing the rest of the country is doing and calling it a normal way of life.

Now if you already know what I am about to write, why are you not doing something drastic about it??

To say we have a butcher at the head of our government is putting it mildly.  The man is mad with power, deceived into thinking he will stop the very thing he is guilty of.  The world sees Bush and America as the worst terrorists since the days of the bloodiest dictators that tried to punish the world into submission while mouthing they are trying to protect us.

Recently a law was brought before Congress banning the severe punishment in our prisons that leads many times to death - death coming as a sweet deliverance from the hell of terror over the thousands of inmates who are incarcerated for less crimes than 100% of Washington commits daily.  Bush vetoed it.  The evil heart cannot devise anything worse than comes from our dictator - butcher Bush.

This law would make water boarding, stripping prisoners naked and throwing them in a cold cell with no cot, no light, no way to wash for months at a time, forcing prisoners to perform or mimic sex acts, beating, burning or physically hurting them in other ways, mock executions, withholding food, water and medical treatment illegal.

Butcher Bush vetoes this bill.  Can you imagine the law standing behind that type of treatment making any type of recourse impossible??

Now if we are, indeed, a Christian nation as butcher Bush professes, and if we have a government that far surpasses any government in the world that Bush, with guns and missiles, is trying to convert the world to, pray tell me why do we  not live by the teachings we profess to follow and pray tell me - with all business people fearful of the Gestapo tactics of our democracy, and with  our prisons bulging with  more people who are a product of this so called ideal society, who needs our Christianity or our democracy?????  Let us take the beam out of our own eye, and then we shall see clearly to pull out the mote that is in "thy brother's eye".

This is a quote.  "Some  were tortured, others had trial of mockings and scourgings, yes, and of chains and imprisonment.  They were stoned, they were sawn in two, were tempted, were slain with the sword.  They wandered about homeless, destitute, afflicted, tormented, of whom the world was not worthy." End of quote.   No, this was not taken from The Register or the New York Times.  It was taken  from the book of Hebrews, chapter 11.  May the God of peace have mercy on us all.
