In his Inaugural Address on January 20, 1961, John Fitzgerald Kennedy stood in front of the steps of the U.S. Capitol and inspired a nation with hope, unity and a new frontier.
He summoned America to battle the common enemies of man: tyranny, poverty, disease and war. Kennedy charged all Americans, “Ask not what your country can do for you—ask what you can do for your country.” This website, which introduces the potential Pulitzer Prize winning book, Blood on Their Hands: How Callous Conservatives Capitalize onClueless Constituents is one of the ways I have chosen to do for my country—the land I call home—the land that I love. The book is cathartic in a great sense. It will allow readers the opportunity to vent their frustrations held over from the 2004 election in which the majority of Americans felt it necessary to retain incompetence, immorality, bigotry, hypocrisy, hatred and blatant buffoonery. The book will inspire readers to call upon their congressmen to begin investigations and indictments against George W. Bush, Richard B. Cheney and a host of others for crimes against humanity.
I remember vividly calling the Jim Leach Show the morning after the 2004 election. “WMAY, you’re on the air,” Jim bellowed as he was broadcasting from his downtown studio. “I feel like I just got hit by a bus,” was my first comment. “I feel a kind of emptiness inside…disappointment, frustration, anger and outrage.” “Jim,” I continued as I was reliving the moment Ohio put George W. Bush over the top, “Are Americans really this stupid?” A few weeks following that phone call, I began to vent my frustration by jotting down notes about Bush’s dismal and disastrous first term. This act helped, but it didn’t feel like enough. Following the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, I remember thing, “somebody ought to write a book.” It was around Saint Patrick’s Day 2005, I decided, “that ‘somebody,’ ought to be me!”
