Eat At Joes

Just a regular Joe who is angry that the USA, the country he loves, is being corrupted and damaged from within and trying to tell his fellow Americans the other half of the story that they don’t get on the TV News.

Nine US Senators Prefer Torture

Ninety of the 100 members of the Senate voted in favor of Republican Senator John McCain’s amendment banning Americans from torturing people. Nine Senators voted to continue torturing people.

The Pro-Torture members of the Senate are:

Wayne Allard (R-CO)
Christopher Bond (R-MO)
Tom Coburn (R-OK)
Thad Cochran (R-MS)
John Cornyn (R-TX)
James Inhofe (R-OK)
Pat Roberts (R-KS)
Jeff Sessions (R-AL)
Ted Stevens (R-AK)

Note that ALL 9 Pro-Torture Senators are Republicans from Red States. As reported here and elsewhere the Red States have the Highest Crime Rates including the Highest Murder Rates in the country, the Highest Divorce Rates, the Highest Illegitimate Birth Rates, the Highest Welfare Rates, they take in more money per capita from the Federal Government than the Blue States (and they take in more money than they pay to the Federal Government in taxes), they have the Lowest Literacy Rates, the Lowest Education Scores, etc. In short these 9 men come from states that drag the rest of our nation down into the gutter where they themselves dwell, and now they want to torture others so that our American Service Members will be Tortured when or if they are taken captive in future military engagements. American Military experts are unanimous in the opinion that it is IMPERATIVE that the US does not engage in torture of our prisoners because it will only lead to the INEVITABLE torture of our own military members in the future. These 9 Republican Senators do not care that they are attempting to cause the future torture of Americans using previous torture by Americans as an excuse. History will remember their vote as a vote attempting to hurt America: these 9 Pro-Torture Senators! Thank God that there are 90 Senators including all of the Democratic Party Senators who understand this and are concerned with the future of our nation and our military personnel. Real Conservative (NOT Neo-Conservatives, i.e. Neo-Clowns) respect the reputation of the US and the treatment of our men and women in uniform just as the Democrats do.

The White House has indicated that President Bush is planning on Vetoing this bill. Note that Bush has not in 5 years vetoed any bill coming out of Congress to his desk, but he is planning on vetoing a bill to stop torture in order to uphold the dignity of the US and to protect our service members from harm. He has been urged to do so under the advise and string pulling of his Neo-Clown advisers, naturally. He doesn't know any better. What is the 9 Pro-Torture Senators' excuse?
