Mohammed Has Dick Cheney Eyes

Dick Cheney, looking dangerously thin, who's mouth is always shovel ready to shovel the sh*t to anyone who will listen, was at the Bush II presidential library site yesterday.

While there he called it the only "shovel ready project" in America as he grinned out of the only side of his mouth that will still grin.

We who have heard him (through his daughter who suffers from emotional incest) extol the virtues of torture, know that Dick was grinning his favourite criminal grin.

We know because we know he helped engineer the greatest bank robbery ever fostered on the American people.

He knows, as the Wall Street Journal pointed out, that the 1% who have the money, after it was stolen from the 99%, are not spending it because they want the democrats to fail, starting with the House, and then on to the President.

The lyrics from the song of choice for this post is:
[he'll] expose you
When [he] snows you
Off your feet with the crumbs [he] throws you
[he's] ferocious
And [he] knows just what it
Takes to make a pro blush
All the boys Think [he's] a spy,
[he's] got [Dick Cheney] eyes
(Bette Davis Eyes, apologies to Kim Carnes). So what else does Mohammed have in common with Dick Cheney?

Lets reflect on some history.

Not one person, business, or other entity has answered the Dredd Blog question, "where did the historic infrastructure spending bill money go?", which we asked about a year ago:
We are talking about "the most expensive public works legislation in US history" having creative billions reserved as special earmarking to the tune of "$24 billion for a staggering 6,376 pet projects, spread among virtually every congressional district in the land".

"The enormous bill -- 1,752 pages long" costing "$286.4 BILLION" known as "the highway bill" was the republican congress and republican president's bill passed in late 2005.

But it did not stop the Minnesota bridge from collapsing and killing American citizens, nor did it stop the great recession that is still ongoing.
(Mega Infrastructure Bill To Make Jobs?). Dick Cheney was Vice President (some say President of Vice) at that time, shortly thereafter a new ruler "Mohammed" emerged in Dubai, Dick Cheney's company Halliburton moved its headquarters to Dubai, which raised some formidable questions:

Who rules the nation that has the largest man made harbor on earth and the busiest U.S. Navy port of call?

Who rules the nation that was given permission to take over a military hardware producing U.S. company?

Who rules the nation that has the tallest building on earth?

Who rules the nation that has the largest airport in the world?

Who rules the nation that received billions of U.S. taxpayer money in the TARP bailout?

Who rules the nation that has the headquarters for Dick Cheney's company Halliburton?

Who rules the nation where AIG did a lot of shady business?

Who rules the nation that would have ruled over U.S. ports if Bush II had his way?

Who rules the nation that has luxurious villas purchased by U.S. taxpayer dollars, gushing from the U.S. Treasury into Afghanistan, then to this ruler's realm?

For some mysterious reason the answer is Mohammed.(Islamic Ruler of Dubai). Follow the money to Dubai, then back into the corporations that dumped billions of dollars into creating the T-party, then into defeating the democrats in 2010, with even more to be spent in 2012.

The republicans give thanks to the Supreme NeoCons on the Supreme NeoCon Court who elected Bush II with 5 supreme votes in Bush v Gore, because they also voted their 5 supreme votes to do away with 100 year old election laws designed to keep foreign influence out of our government (see Foreign Citizens United v FEC).

They all have Dick Cheney eyes, the eyes of the lizard brain that is rising up as a result of the passing of the peak of sanity.


  1. He knows, as the Wall Street Journal pointed out, that the 2% who have the money, after it was stolen from the 98%, are not spending it because they want the democrats to fail, starting with the House, and then on to the President.

    Point taken, but you really have to marvel at the dems ability to shoot themselves in the foot as well with little or no assistance from the "All Grift, All of the Time" party. To wit:

    NATO Summit

    Rangel Censure

    Senate Dems Vent Anger

    The dems have become caricatures of an an actual opposition party - a virtual opposition party if you will! They're what results when a giant malignant and militant corporatocracy establishes an 8 lane super highway of a revolving door into the federal government and renders all politics farcical and meaningful only for those who stand to benefit, and limits all political differences to merely theatrical and cosmetic. The illusion of active dissent is just that. Entertainment for those of who still bother to pay attention at all.

    You really have to hand it to Cheney though. He did almost all of this unapologetically and right out in the light of day, both in and out of office. I hate the old bastard with a passion, but unlike the dems, he at least has the courage of his own misguided intentions, which would seem to be the key to actually getting things done in this world.

  2. disaffected,

    "the key to actually getting things done in this world"

    Actually, it is the way to get bad things done in this country if Dick Cheney is the example.

    Hence the hypothesis that we are on the downward side of the slope of peak insanity.

    In such a context doing nothing may just be better.

    Thus the saying "at least they are doing something even if it is wrong" is evidence of the symptom, because, "don't just stand there, do nothing" does not seem to fit.

    You and I seem to differ about whether doing wrong is doing "something" and therefore good.

    There is a time when doing nothing is "doing" the better thing IMO.

    Anyway, STILL no one has answered my question about where the money RE the GREATEST INFRASTRUCTURE SPENDING BILL in history went.

    Can you see Cheney in his office mockingly looking under the desk, table, chair, etc. looking for the hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars, like Bush II did when mocking not finding WMD in Iraq?

  3. You and I seem to differ about whether doing wrong is doing "something" and therefore good.

    No, not at all. I totally agree that doing nothing is often better, especially when the half measure is blatantly skewed in behalf of the GOP. Obama's healthcare bill is the poster child for that sentiment.

    I'm certainly no fan of Cheney whatsoever, but when it comes to evaluating his effectiveness I take a purely objective point of view. Does he accomplish what he sets out to do, whether its right, wrong, or indifferent? That answer almost always comes back an emphatic YES. On the flip side, ask that same question of Obama amd the dems and just the opposite is true. Even when they say yes they almost always have to hedge their meaning, since they always sell the farm in the process of negotiating/capitulating to their much more tactically savvy GOP opponents.

    Although I despise the results the GOP almost always gets, I DO have to admire their moxie when it comes to the political process in general, and their ability to enforce party discipline and unity straight down the line. The Tea Party is beginning to mount a small challenge to that last bit as we speak, but we've yet to hear the Fat Lady sing on that for awhile yet. I think the smart money's on the GOP's ability to bring the Tea Partiers back into the fold once they see how DC power hardball is really played, but we'll see the answer to all that soon enough.

    One thing's for sure to my mind at least, the real power struggle in DC for the next two years will be between the Tea Baggers and the old school GOP, with the dems merely trying to stay out of the way of the fight and hang on for 2012. Not that it's going to help them though. Their hard core liberal base has seen their true colors, and we ain't coming back for any more of their watered down crap. We need another hard dose of unadulterated GOP right-wing BS for 4 years (or more) absent any dem palliative to ease the pain. Maybe THEN we can get down to the hard work of talking about REAL solutions to our problems, since 8 years of Bush II obviously wasn't enough to energize the dems into doing so. Good riddance! They won't be missed.

  4. No one knows where the money went?

    I guess "follow the money" went down the road with the corporate admiration society.
