20. Well I know this, and I'm not lying...


... that as soon as GW got in office, he had Collin Powell running all over the world rattling the sabres. I knew, and my dearly departed Mother knew, that they would have us in a war so quick we wouldn't know what happened. The saber rattling got worse as the year went on, then came 9/11. Mother and I just looked at each other and said nothing else. We started praying for our soldiers, as we knew it would be no time until we were in another war. But we would never have guessed that the main thrust of the war would be toward Iraq, which had nothing to do with 9/11.

I knew that when Collin got up there in the UN and waved around that little vial on that fateful Monday, as if it was actually Anthrax, I knew it was a lie. I knew it. Collin was not a good liar. He was not convincing. I could see straight thru him. That was not the Collin Powell I knew.

I knew the spiel about WMDs and mushroom clouds was all a lie. GW and his cabal lead this country into two wars on a credit card, told everyone to go shopping, and spent up the surplus that Clinton left by giving the 1% a great big tax break to ice the cake. Yeah...told everyone they should buy a home. That a man's home was his castle. And so it was.

And by Sept 14, 2008, the housing bubble popped and Hank Paulson came to Congress begging on behalf of Wall Street. The rest is history....
