Cash In Your Face



In all the hoopla regarding the latest issue of Scott McClellan and what did he know about what did they know prior to his lying about it anyway, by allegedly unenlightened proxy...

One point of contrast strikes me as a poignant signpost on the road to whatever fresh Hell awaits.

In the 1970's America, investigative reporters and concerned citizens coalesced, and prompted officials to begin a forensic bipartisan look at how the process of government was abused by the highest powers in the land, leading to a resignation in disgrace of the President of the United States, some short steps ahead of his impeachment.

Afterward, came the book deals, the movie options, and all the rest of the mass media merchandizing as players and commentators alike jockeyed for position on the totem pole of relative truth, whether to reap the benefits of their investigative sweat equity or pay their legal bills.

And now, here we are, over thirty years later, arguably having learned little in the way of prudent oversight in such matters despite repeated reminders of the criminals and architects of Empire in our midst...

And the difference between now and there is...

Everybody's doing the book and movie deals first.

Hopefully they will only be able to use any monies earned to pay their fucking defense lawyers.
All future royalties too.
Bastards.

The graphic is outstanding, even by your already high Darkblackian standards. Simple yet elegant and spot on.

It is your words however and your linked reminders of the evil that walks among us.

It all fits in so well with the neocon "backward-world" we live in these days, dosen't it?

darkblack said...

High praise that I hope to live up to, Fran...Thank you.

Now...'Bizzaro' and 'Bush' both start with the letter B.

Coincidence? I think not, Mr. Natural.
