The Tide is Turning.
The tide is turning.
The tide of Corporate Fanatical Christianity is turning, these are the days when that wave of darkness, breaks and rolls back into the depths of the sea.
The Neo-Cons are in big trouble.
The first cracks began to show as the bodies piled up on the backs of parents who have suffered for King George the Seconds attempt at Global Hegemony in Iraq and Afghanistan. Those cynical and murderous capitalisations on the tragedy of 9/11.
Those cracks ran like shafts down to the foundation of his administration after his idiocy left FEMA in the control of the Department of Homeland security and his cronyism handed its operations to "Brownie", a man whose nickname I am sure came from his reaction to pressure and stress.
Hundreds died, thousands made homeless.
Then the architects of his corrupt house of cards were too busy trying to save themselves to save his house. Karl Rove, is now under investigation for supposedly revealing the identity of Valerie Plame as a CIA agent. This was followed by Congresional Majority Leader, Former Majority Whip and Born Again Christian Zealot Tom DeLay being indited by a Federal Grand Jury for illegal campaign contributions and money laundering.
Fewer and fewer people are left to scream and shout Bush's ducks into an acquiescent, obedient line.
Now, even Bush's ability to torture and maim detainees of the United States Army (and intelligence organisations) has been taken from him in a rare display of balls from the Republican controlled Senate. Yesterday there was a vote on whether restrictions should be placed on the treatment of Terrorism detainees.
The Senate has voted and the vote passed.
The wording of the resolution states that it will stop"cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment" against anybody in United States government custody, regardless of where they are detained. This almost open revolt against Bush policies would have been almost inconceivable even a year ago.
One by one the walls of his house are falling.
"Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer
Things fall apart
The center cannot hold."
(The Second Coming, W.B. Yeats)
Peace and Hope.
