Perhaps I was wrong. Either Americans are very lazy and apathetic with very short memories, or George W. Bush is the greatest President in the history of the United States! Perhaps that is indeed the case. Despite his “minor” mistakes while in the Oval Office…i.e. war crimes, crimes against humanity and a host of foreign & domestic policy failures, George W. Bush remains free appearing often in public venues while thumbing his nose at America.
Perhaps my book, “Blood on Their Hands: How Callous Conservatives Capitalize on Clueless Constituents” was a mistake. Perhaps I was unfair to judge George W. Bush & Company so harshly. Just because he ruined people’s lives, cost people their lives, broke the law and disregarded the Constitution…well…things happen I guess! Maybe people like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity & Ann Coulter are right after after all.
Bush may have had a few mishaps & didn’t secure Osama bin Laden, but Barack Obama is evil, misguided and should be impeached & imprisoned! We need GOP leadership in our lives to promote deregulation, put forth tax breakes for the wealthy, and put the squeeze on the middle class. When I wrote, “Blood on Their Hands,” what was I thinking? Forgive me people of America. George W. Bush must be the greatest president we ever had!
With his swagger & his trademark smirk, George W. Bush put a damper on this year’s Super Bowl & College World Series. But apparently he didn’t make any plans to spoil Major League Baseball’s classic annual All-Star Game. I almost didn’t watch it, anticipating that the multiple-time war criminal would be in the broadcast booth thumbing his nose at America and showing off his baseball savvy.

I recently noticed one of the best bumper stickers I had ever seen. Often times, I happen upon cars, trucks and vans with the usual, “My Other Car is a Porsche,” “Freedom isn’t Free” and the always popular, “God Bless America.” Taking a bit of a jab at the “God Bless America,” slogan, the bumper sticker message I am applauding read, “God Bless Everyone…No Exceptions!”
I touch on this sentiment in my new book, Blood on Their Hands. I argue, are Americans arrogant and egocentric enough to think that God bestows His divine focus on the people of the United States? I call this the “Michelle Bachmann-Sarah Palin ‘Tea Party’ mentality.” No. His love for humanity is universally unconditional & all-inclusive. End of subject!

Opening day of the 2011 college world series featured North Carolina, Vanderbilt and war criminal George W. Bush. The former president & current war criminal was grinning from ear to ear as he threw the cermonial first pitch to Nebraska All-State catcher Tanner Lubach.
“President Bush was the first sitting president to attend the college world series in 2001, and it is our privilege to have the former president return and open the series by throwing out the first pitch,” said NCAA Vice President Dennis Poppe.
Shame on you Dennis Poppe and shame on the NCAA for inviting War Criminal Bush to the college world series! And shame on ESPN for promoting this spectacle by inviting Bush to sit sit in the broadcast booth and be a guest commentator! Read my new book, Blood on Their Hands, see the underlying story and learn why George W. Bush & Company will soon be on the Road to Prison! Forrest P. Redd

Reflecting back on his accomplished life, it almost seemed as though the article could have featured Winston Churchill, Will Rogers or Mark Twain. “”Dubya Down Home on the Plains of Texas,” could have easily been the name of an article by Nancy Graham which appeared in a recent issue of AARP magazine. The article, which was actually entitled, “What’s Next for George W. Bush?” depicts the former president as a relaxed ‘down home-good ‘ole boy’ we all wish we could have a beer with.
The article discusses his “achievements” (quotes are mine) while president, retirement, and his plans to better the world (ala Jimmy Carter’s Habitat for Humanity). In her article, Graham goes so far as to refer to the war criminal as a “statesman” (read, Blood on Their Hands by Forrest P. Redd).
Bush claimed that his two biggest regrets while Commander-in-Chief were not finding Osama bin Laden and the fact that Saddam Hussein did not have weapons of mass destruction. The grinning from ear-to-ear “folk hero” from the Plains did acknowledge that Hussein was clearly “a threat to world peace.” A small world it is indeed…..George W. Bush was also a threat to world peace!
Former Presidential candidate John Edwards was indicted last week by a federal grand jury. Six counts including conspiracy, false statements & four counts of illegal campaign contributions were levied against Edwards. The indictment stated that payments made to keep his mistress away from public & media scrutiny was a scam to prtect his White House ambitions. Many, from around the country have voiced their displeasure & disappointment in Edwards. ”Sleazy,” “sleazeball” and “two-timer” were some of the adjectives used. The case that posecutors had prepared has been reviewed by the U.S. Department of Justice.
Meanwhile, a federal grand jury in Chicago will be deciding the fate of former Illinois Governor Rod Blogojevich. Blogojevich, who’s been under investigation by the FBI since 2005 for corruption, was indicted for, among other things, making false statements, attempting to shake-down a Chicago children’s hospital, attempting to sell Barack Obama’s vacated senate seat, extortion & campaign finance fraud. Many, as in the Edward’s case, have used the web to offer their opinions and outrage against Illinois’ former Commander-in-Chief.
I will not attempt to defend Edwards or Blogojevich. They have their own defense teams in place to do that. However, I must ask once again…why are we as a nation not demonstrating this same outrage towards the George W. Bush administration? Why have they yet to be indicted for their numerous crimes against humanity & war crimes (see “Blood on Their Hands” by Forrest Redd, chapter eight)? Is the US Justice Department too busy reviewing & monitoring Edwards’ & Blogojevich’s cases to concern themselves with the Bush administration? Bush’s rap-sheet alone is ten-fold that of Edwards & Blogojevich combined!

Thursday evening I had the pleasure of attending our monthly Veterans for Peace meeting in Saint Louis. Fundraising discussions dominated much of the two hour session. As various ideas were being banted about, Reese mentioned an experience that he and one other VFP member encountered a few years ago at a local Veterans Administration (VA) Center.
Upon arriving at the center to do some volunteer work, both men were given a choice; change their shirts or leave. In case they refused, a couple of security guards were on hand to assist them with their decision. Why were they told to change their shirts or leave? Both men were wearing Veterans for Peace T-Shirts with a dove carrying an olive branch logo on the front, and a I Hate War, quote by Dwight Eisenhower on the back. They were told that they were displaying an un-patriotic & anti-American atmosphere.
As this was during the George W. Bush administration, it was not a complete shock. This was the sentiment that unfortunately permeated America during the Bush regime. I have to ask…..since when did promoting peace become anti-American? If there are any who have the right to speak about promoting a more peaceful world, it’s veterans who know the ravage of war.
Defending the concept of peace is not un-patriotic or anti-American. We, Veterans for Peace members, are staunchly pro-defense, pro-troops, & pro-America. And we defy anyone to question our patriotism!
“I hate war as only a soldier who has lived it can, as only one who has seen its brutality, its futility, its stupidity.” —General Dwight David Eisenhower

Who was Colin Powell’s successor as Secretary of State?
During one of his last shows in the month of May, MSNBC talk show host Ed Schultz called his guest Laura Ingraham, a “Right-Wing Slut.” Schultz, who will be suspended for one week without pay promised that he will “never use those words again.” In my new book, Blood on Their Hands, I refer to Ms. Ingraham as “filthy.” This is indeed because she is in fact filthy. No sugar-coating will come from me regarding Laura Ingraham. This is the same woman who refers to gay & lesbians as “sodomites,” liberals as “God-haters,” and claims that we liberals think that George W. Bush is “an idiot.” The latter one she might have a good point about! While Ed Schultz serves his suspension from MSNBC, the idiot, buffoon George W. Bush continues enjoy the free life without suffering any of the consequences for his war crimes and numerous other misdeeds. See more about Bush, Ingraham & Company in Blood on Their Hands.
