Maybe this explains why Bush is "inexplicably upbeat"

Speculation has run wild ever since the Washington Post reported that Bush and Rove seem "inexplicably upbeat" in the face of all the scandals claiming Republicans on the eve of the midterm elections. What do they know that we don't know? Is Bush planning an attack on North Korea or Iran? Has Diebold already fixed the outcome of the election? Is Rove going to find a way to postpone or suspend the election?

Or is Bush indifferent to losing control of the House and Senate...because...he's planning to move to Paraguay?

Don't laugh - at least two independent sources report rumors of a Bush family purchase of land in northern Paraguay. One of the sources, Prensa Latina, said:

"An Argentine official regarded the intention of the George W. Bush family to settle on the Acuifero Guarani (Paraguay) as surprising, besides being a bad signal for the governments of the region...Luis D Elia, undersecretary for the Social Habitat in the Argentine Federal Planning Ministry, issued a memo partially reproduced by digital INFOBAE.com, in which he spoke of the purchase by Bush of a 98,842-acre farm in northern Paraguay, between Brazil and Bolivia.

"D Elia considered this Bush step counterproductive for the regional power expressed by Presidents Nestor Kirchner, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, Evo Morales, Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro.

"He said that 'it is a bad signal that the Bush family is doing business with natural resources linked to the future of MERCOSUR.'

"The official pointed out that this situation could cause a hypothetical conflict of all the armies in the region, and called attention to the Bush family habit of associating business and politics."

Yeah, business and politics...and...avoidance of extradition for war crimes?

Don't you ever get tired of looking at how corrupt this current administration is? Doesn't that affect your overall energy and what you take home to your loved ones at night?

What's more depressing is living with all of our fellow Americans who don't seem to mind that the Bill of Rights has been ripped to shreds.

Anonymous: Yes, we do get tired of looking at how corrupt the current administration is, and sometimes we feel like our efforts to make others aware of the corruption are futile. Are we wasting energy we could be or should be using elsewhere? Maybe, but there is an urgency about the horrors we are witnessing that we have trouble ignoring, and we're not sure what else to do with our acute sense of injustice. Our loved ones may indeed be suffering because of our preoccupation, but might they suffer more if we don't persevere and, ultimately, prevail?

EWD: Well, at least now Bush can't be tried for war crimes. Just imagine the damage to America's reputation if our president ended up behind bars! What? Our reputation is already damaged? Well, then...
