    prosecuted.  Check it out before you repeat the same tired old stuff.  

    As for Cheney, it might shock you to know that he's slick.  He was in the inner circle when Iran Contra blew up, and that was hard to dump off on their chosen patsy.  Remember the kerfluffle with outing a CIA agent?  Slid thru again.  He'd have walked, become a holy martyr for the right, and a bunch of low-level agents would be serving life sentences for something they were told was legal and critically necessary.  

    He learned from Watergate to have no paper trail that would be prosecutable, to have patsies in place to serve the time and take the heat.  Pretty sure his rants on Fox News would be thrown out.  Fox already won the right to lie to the public.  

    I repeat, not all whistle-blowers are concerned citizens.  Some are.  Some are unfairly prosecuted.  Maybe we need to change our laws?  

    I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.

      •  Yeah right. We didn't prosecute Nixon, or (0+ / 0-)

        Reagan, but now we need to get serious?  We did jackshit about our Cold War interference in foreign governments all over the world, but now it's time to straighten up and fly right?

        How about this, let's start with retroactive prosecutions of the Founders for building slavery into the Constitution, then every President complicit in the genocide of the original citizens, then double-down on those who undermined foreign governments.  

        If we'd gotten serious about this shit 60 years ago Cheney would have been out of politics before he really got started.

          prosecuting the banksters as we did in the late 80s and early 90s? that would be a good start. we put quite a few execs in prison for that.

          oh wait, a lot of bad guys buddies work in gov't now, so we can't... sigh...
