Palast - The House I Live In:
"Howard Zinn, a shining historian on our hill, reminds us, 'It should be understood that the children of Iraq, of China, and of Africa, children everywhere in the world, have the same right to life as American children.'
Damn right, they do. That's what Jefferson meant by 'inalienable.'
And they won't get their rights to life and liberty from Osama's Caliphate of oil states or China's money-crazed 'Communism' nor half of Africa's neo-colonial presidential Draculas or the puppet princes installed today in Iraq by George Bush.
Bush is so far away from his refugee loser roots that he just doesn't get what it is to be American. So he steals the one thing that every American is handed off the boat: a chance. When they take away your Social Security and overtime and tell you sleeper cells are sleeping under your staircase, you don't take a chance, you lose your chance, and the land of opportunity becomes a landscape of fear and suspicion, an armed madhouse.
You want to say that George Bush is an evil sonovabitch? I'd go further: he's UN-AMERICAN."
