Bush Confesses To War Crimes

Bush confesses that he and top officials at the White House designed the White House Torture Program, and that he approved of the torture of POWs.

Now that it is official that the White House does approve of the torture of POWs, our boys in uniform had better take care. The US originally led the led push to draft and ratify the Geneva Convention after World War II. The death of the Geneva Convention may lead to them being tortured if captured by foreign armies.

When officers were convicted of authorizing and or engaging in torture in World War II, they were executed for their crimes.

Now Bush and other White House officials have confessed to committing the same crimes, that once carried the death penalty. But I believe that this time, they will not be charged or convicted.

If the Chinese decide to capture any of our men or women in uniform again, as they did when Bush first took office, then they could make an argument that they have a right to torture them for information, as Bush has officially set a precedent.

We now live in a time where our government is no longer bound by the law. the US Constitution no longer lays the foundation by which our government operates. As we march to World War, this cannot bode well for us. With no rules, no laws, no mission, just endless war in our future, hard times are coming for all.

The troops love Bush / McCain. It would be an honor for them to get tortured on behalf of the neo-cons. [/sarcasm]

The SOB he can do what he wants and taunts us with it! I remember when this first came out I posted that now I have something else to worry about with my sons. Bush tells the world it is okay to torture of you do it right and you think it is in your interest. Maddening!

Knowing what this chief idiot is doing with his underhanded lying war mongering while using the facade of Religion and Democracy to do it i was sickened watching his gutter sniping with the Pope, even picking him up at the airport. What a two faced scum!

OT - I just figured out the best thing ever for tying tomatoes to stakes. Plastic shopping bags.

1) Cut into strips.

2) Tie to stake

3) Tie to tomato.

The tomato is gently supported, it is insulated from the stake, and the ties are free. I thought I would pass that along. :)

The world is fast turning into someone else's definition of Armeggedon. Everything is spinning out of control and still Americans just sit and wait. What the f*ck is wrong with us?

I used to wonder how the German people could possibly be led into something like nazism. Not anymore.

Fear is control.

Kill your television, people. Stand up.

Hey Wease! Off subject but how is your Garden?

Good and Bad.

I've promised another video. I'll try to do one soon. I was planning to do it this weekend, but we may have rain.

My main garden is going great. I expect my squash to flower soon.

My second garden has plants coming up. My okra has even sprouted.

Two small plots I have, need to be redone. The soil I think is too compacted and my dogs wrestled in them. One of my thornless blackberries is broken off at the root. I may plant a couple more blackberries and put a bag of leaves there and let them slowly compost for fall or next spring.

We've harvested some horseradish. And we're making salads from the gardens.

My front yard has a garden circle with asparagus. Our last storm blew it all over and though it's growing sideways fine, it's a bit ugly. It would've looked better, growing toward the street instead of away. I think that putting a border around it will make it look more aesthetically pleasing. for some reason my artichokes refuse to grow on the side facing the street. Six feet away, they grow like gangbusters. There used to be a juniper bush a few feet from there. I wonder if it effected the soil?

My pear and peach trees are loaded down. My almond tree is still alive after starting it from seed this year.

My figs are loaded with green fruit.

In the back all of my new artichokes are thriving.

More to come...

Sounds great over all! i have never grown artichokes so don't know what they like to be planted next to. Do you companion plant? You know carrots love tomatoes and believe it or not plants throw out something to keep certain plants from growing next to them. Maybe that is why some are growing and some aren't. Carrots Love Tomatoes is a very helpful book!

I just looked it up and saw the book for as little as $10 and as much as $30. There are others on it too and you can go to the library. Look forward to your update. Carrots Love Tomatoes

Thanks Jim. I've heard of the book, but I've never read it.

I companion plant everything already. After all, nature thrives on what appears to be disorder, but is really a symphony of cooperation and competition.

I found on my own, years ago that mixing up plants, reduces pest problems. And planting more densely than recommended may reduce crop yield per plant, but doesn't seriously effect the yield per square foot. Putting plants closer together, encourages spiders, mantids and other predators to take up residence. They do not like to be on exposed plants.

My big problem last year was squash bugs. This year, I plan to vacuum them off the plants, to keep their numbers low.

I am also a big fan of wasps and hornets. I have ground hornet nest behind my back fence, buried deep under brambles and thorny blackberries. Nothing bothers them there, and when they visit my garden they aren't aggressive.

When wasps nest under the eaves of the house, I leave them be if it isn't a high traffic area. I even had a nest in my chicken coop one year. they never bothered me and i never bothered them. I could work right next to them, sweeping, cleaning, without fear.

My yard right now is covered in a variety of lizards and we're finding nests of ground snakes under every stone.

Isn't it funny but yopu never see a certain insect until you plant a certain veggie. I use to wonder where they hung out before I gave them their food.

Hi Wease,

Hey, don't lump the world in with our own fine mess. Not everyone feels the pain in the same way.

One of the reasons that the EU works; NO WAR.
They remember war like it was yesterday.
Also they do regulate things better.

To date, Germany always mirrored America's economy but this time, gratefully, they were too smart to let the hustlers do a run on at the banks.

I'm heading to Munich tomorrow on business. Germany's history has almost always been dark, but if you want to know how the Weimar Republic was replaced you need to know how America tried to starve them and the French stole entire train tracks. It was an ugly confluence of events.

It's quite complicated how civilized countries like Germany do what they do, or how dynamic, creative, positive countries like America become what they do, but we're all participating in the human experiment. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
