Hung Out to Dry



So over the past few monthes I did indeed sink into despair ( as stated in previous post). Despair that OUR Country had Lost it's System of Justice ( as well as any Honor or Ethics). For me the final straw on the camel's thin back was the US Attorney Scandal, because for me watching these Fine Honorable Attorneys be tossed to the curb was and is beyond reproach. For me the moment I saw on the CNN Ticker that they had been fired Without Reason that Bitter Cold January Day was as heartbending as seeing Red Tanker Trucks Midnight-Dump in my Drinking Water in October 1999. ( see post Red Trucks and Watery Lies). I realized in that icey January Moment that I was indeed Hung Out to Dry.

But over the past few monthes after alot of reading and watching CSpan ( my addiction still),I had an Epiphany. In the past six years haven't we All been Hung Out to Dry ? The Katrina Victims and survivors ( and refugees flung across the country) ? Thousands across the Country that have been ILLEGALLY SPIED ON ? Thousands on the NO FLY list ? Thousands that can't GET Passports- because THEY ARE BEING SCREENED AND EARMARKED ? Thousands that have Lost Jobs ? 47 Million without Insurance ? 9 million Children without Insurance ? 37 Million living and Working Below the Poverty Line scrambling to LIVE week to week ? Millions that are Homeless due to Joblessness, bankruptcy, THE WAR, and Medical Bills ? And The Vets and their Families ? And yes other Whistleblowers like me ?

BUT.....
What if We are Hung Out to Dry.....Is there not a LINE that now Connects ALL of us ? To Fight Back Harder ? To Take Care of Each Other ? To End this Criminal Regime...We The People has NEW Meaning, and it means US taking Back this Country, OUR Country.

Me....I Believe that We are ALL Connected.
We may indeed be Hung Out to Dry, but we are Connected.
I look at my clothes drying on the line differently now, with Hope.
I see Prayer Flags blowing in the wind....Connected by the Damage but also by Hope.

They may have hung us out to dry but were not dry.

If the Democrats don't start impeachment hearings now then there is no more Democratic Party. Just a bunch of power hungry jerks that are also betraying their country like the current administration is.

God Bless.

I heartily agree about starting impeachment hearings (airing the dirty laundry). In fact, here's an email I sent 6/21/07 (no response yet) to a man I had much faith in:
John.Conyers@mail.house.gov

"I'd like to respectfully express my deflation over your failure to follow through on your stated intention to hold impeachment hearings for Cheney and Bush.

"I understand the reasons why you may feel the effort would fail, or why the Democratic Leadership would choose not to actually impeach as a pragmatic calcuation.

"Yet, you spoke the words, sir. It was you who said the impeachment process would allow investigation & provide one place wherein the exact nature of this administration's high crimes would be recorded for all to see.

"By buckling on this issue, you failed in your expressed conviction that to begin impeachment hearings would be the only way to unearth the truth.

"So, my question to you now is: if investigation and impeachment is not appropriate for Bush and Cheney, then what is the purpose of it even being in the Constitution?"

DK, fantastic letter to Conyers. We have been hung out to dry - and I am going to borrow your email andd send my own version to Mr. Conyers as well.

D.K. Raed said...

Thanks, Diva. I'm going to change the wording a bit & send to more of our reps, esp those on the judiciary committee. 'Course I'll have to correct the spelling on "calcuation" first (grin)! ~~ D.K.

I think ALL of us need to send a Version of this letter to DC, DK has once again nailed the Truth of the Matter- send it to The Judiciary Committees and make them do their job- and Impeach and Indict- ALL of Bushco, Dick and George and Rove ....the WHOLE Criminal Regime....Off the Table my ass....

Great way to phrase this as we have all "been hung out to dry" and none of us like it.

Peacechick Mary said...

You're right on so many counts, E4E. One that stands out with me, is that we are all connected - maybe by just a thin cable, but we are indeed present for one another, wet, dry or whipping in the wind. We're here and we matter and we count.

enigma4ever said...

Larry: you bet we don't like it...and about half this country I think is apathetic...and Apathy kills...but those of us that realize what is going on I think do realize we are in this together....

PeaceChick: Oh my gosh....the Cable that connects us...you are so right....and yes, we do matter and we do count....each and everyone....

I've been close to giving up many times but then I read your posts (finally - huge relief) and others.

And I decide to keep on keeping on.

Of course, their hope is we'll all be afraid to keep talking about their indiscretions, alas, with more and more of the dirty deeds coming out (family jewels this week) it will only fuel the fire that's been burning ever so brightly since gw & co have been in office! ; (

And they fear us! Just witness the recent attack on Shakespeare's Sister.

The bad guys are aware that our voices are being heard and that our influence is being felt.

But priority one must be to get the pretender off of the throne. Until George Bush is stopped I do not have much hope for our country.

His cancerous presence is literally killing America.

ITMFA! I am not registered as a Democrat, but as a "decline to state". The Dem's are turning into Republican-lite by my pov..only a handful are true to their constituents..Feingold, Kucinich to name two off the top of my head.

The Dem Party would rather keep BushCo around to use as pinata's...because then they do not have to make any decisions..they just blame king george.

Bastards.

enigma4ever said...

You all speak the truth...I sit here and cheer and cuss and spit and know you are RIGHT ON...all the way...all counts...so what do we do...??? Hillaryland my ass, yikes..the horroe....and yes, I still love Russ Feingold and Kucinich is a good man- honest....I still like Edwards and Obama....

But whatever WE MUST get rid of Buscho- we must....
good nite folks...more tomorrow night...
