A vet speaks out about Bush

Posted by justjoe on January 2, 2006

Well, I just pulled into San Antonio after a long drive from Las Cruzes NM and am filled with one bad news story after another about the corruption, deceits and thuggery from George and Company in Washington. So I got on line and pulled up my e-mail from one of my Veteran buddys and found this waiting for me. It’s an article about a Vietnam Vet named Tim Abbott from a Southwestern Virginia town of Hillsville speaking up in defense of his country.

“Bush talks a lot about freedom, courage, transparent government and the rule of law. He talks.” Abbott says. “His speeches are carefully choreographed before audiences of his faithful — often Christian fundamentalists or, to paraphrase Bush, Christian-fascists — and they must sign loyalty oaths to Bush. He speaks before audience after audience of soldiers and sailors who cannot speak except as directed by the White House.”

Thanks, Tim. I couldn’t have said it better.
