Canada to Cheney - "Get a Conscience Guido"

During the Nixon Administration, Vice President Agnew was forced to resign. Among his many entrepreneurial efforts as VP - a watch with his face on the front (it became the EDSEL of political memorabilia).

But darlin, these guys make Nixon look like a boy scout.


See the state by state list at Wayne Madsen's site(below) to keep abreast of the indictments and arrests within the Bush administration.

I have included a sample below (the grid at Madsen's site is more visually comprehensive).

Organized crime using the American military to invade countries and steal their natural resources.

These "elected by Diebold" representatives, have raped their own country, destroyed the constitution and not honored elected representatives from the Democratic party.
(They refuse to let Democrats ATTEND meetings ... there is no democracy or statesmanship - just this party of thugs and dead enders all being bribed three ways sideways.)

So once you pick up your war profiteers card deck at http://www.warprofiteers.com you can check out this grid and pin up a card everytime we bring another evil liar to justice.
http://www.waynemadsenreport.com/gopscorecard.htm

And thanks to Paul Martin (even if it was an election ploy) telling the USA and any other nation NOT involved in solving global warming ..that they need a conscience check. (Of course Cheney was offended by the TRUTH and complained formally to the Canadian Government. Hey Paul, why not call him back and tell him that Marc Emery is off limits as well - we do not deport to countries that TORTURE and opt out of the Geneva Convention (do we?)

Federal prosecutors have all but finalized a plea agreement with a second business partner of former lobbyist Jack Abramoff in exchange for cooperation in the ongoing criminal investigations of Abramoff, congressional aides and Rep. Robert W. Ney (R-Ohio), lawyers in the case said yesterday. Adam Kidan, a longtime confidant of Abramoff’s, has agreed to testify against Abramoff in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., next month when he is to face trial on fraud and conspiracy charges in connection with their purchase of a fleet of Florida casino boats. A Kidan plea would tie Abramoff’s legal troubles in Florida more closely to the Washington investigation into his lobbying practices, pressuring Abramoff to reach a deal of his own that could implicate members of Congress and other government officials, lawyers involved in the case said.
