You Can Be Certain & You Can Be Wrong

You Can Be Certain & You Can Be Wrong

By Allen L Roland, Ph.D.

I wonder how anyone who watched the presidential debate on September 30th could feel comfortable calling George W. Bush our commander-in-chief. Someday, I suspect, a popular consensus will characterize the year 2001 as a time when an uninformed man with a bullhorn was mistaken for a world leader: Charles D Hayes

You can be certain and you can be wrong .

Those words said by John Kerry at the first debate are the definitive difference between George Bush and John Kerry. John Kerry knew that the Vietnam War was a mistake and spoke the truth and it was not a popular decision.

John Kerry knows the war with Iraq was a mistake , even though he voted for the war, and that alone qualifies him for President ~ for George Bush refuses to admit he was wrong and is blindly leading our country into a catastrophic defeat because of false pride and blind arrogance.

Thursday night Kerry brilliantly revealed that Emperor Bush has no clothes ~ and millions of Americans watched in shocked disbelief.

But Tuesday night you will meet the master puppeteer of this failed neo conservative pipedream, Dick Cheney ~ who will be fully revealed as the Darth Vader of this imperial war ship.

Yes, Darth Vader, Dark Lord of the Sith, the scourge of the Jedi, a master of the dark side of the Force, and one of the Emperor's most trusted servants if not the guiding force of Bush's short sided and imperialistic ambitions.

You and millions of Americans will clearly see the false hubris and certainty of Cheney who is responsible for not only continually misleading the American public but still maintains these deceptions in his public statements.

Fortunately young Luke Skywalker, John Edwards, is armed with a powerful light saber of truth and is more than prepared to trap Cheney in his own misleading words of fear and war mongering ~ and yes, prepare yourself to be equally shocked.

Kerry has set the stage and Edwards will deliver what should be a mortal blow to the most deceptive and arrogant Administration of our lifetime . Remember, this is our only court appointed President and self appointed Vice President ~ and we are more than paying the price for this white house coup.

You can be certain and you can be wrong and this Administration was absolutely certain that its own radical and fringe neo conservative agenda , based on lies and deception, was America's destiny ~ and they were wrong !

The tide has turned and not a moment too soon .

Binoy Kampmark: Funeral Rites For COVID Zero
It was such a noble public health dream, even if rather hazy to begin with. Run down SARS-CoV-2. Suppress it. Crush it. Or just “flatten the curve”, which could have meant versions of all the above. This created a climate of numerical sensitivity: a few case infections here, a few cases there, would warrant immediate, sharp lockdowns, stay-at-home orders, the closure of all non-vital service outlets...

Dunne Speaks: 25 Years Of MMP - And The Government Wants To Make It Harder For Small Parties
This week marks the 25th anniversary of the New Zealand’s first MMP election. Over the last quarter century, the MMP electoral system has led to our Parliament becoming more socially and ethnically diverse, more gender balanced, and to a wider spread of political opinion gaining representation. Or, as one of my former colleagues observed somewhat ruefully at the time, Parliament starting to look a little more like the rest of New Zealand... More>>

Eric Zuesse: China Says U.S.-China War Is Imminent

China has now publicly announced that, unless the United States Government will promptly remove from China’s Taiwan province the military forces that it recently sent there, China will soon send military forces into that province, because, not only did the U.S. secretly send “special operations forces” onto that island...

Dunne Speaks: Labour's High Water Mark
If I were still a member of the Labour Party I would be feeling a little concerned after this week’s Colmar Brunton public opinion poll. Not because the poll suggested Labour is going to lose office any time soon – it did not – nor because it showed other parties doing better – they are not... More>>

Our Man In Washington: Morrison’s Tour Of Deception

It was startling and even shocking. Away from the thrust and cut of domestic politics, not to mention noisy discord within his government’s ranks, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison could breathe a sign of relief. Perhaps no one would notice in Washington that Australia remains prehistoric in approaching climate change relative to its counterparts... More>>

Binoy Kampmark: Melbourne Quake: Shaken, Not Stirred

It began just after a news interview. Time: a quarter past nine. Morning of September 22, and yet to take a sip from the brewed Turkish coffee, its light thin surface foam inviting. The Australian city of Melbourne in its sixth lockdown, its residents fatigued and ravaged by regulations. Rising COVID-19 numbers, seemingly inexorable... More>>
