If anyone e-mailed me in the last 2 weeks and you don’t hear from me by the end of this week, please e-mail me again. It seems when I originally checked my account I had hundreds of new e-mails and then later there were only a few dozen. I have no idea what happened to them. I think this may have been caused by the computer problems I was having.
I am now on a new laptop and all should be fine. Also if you are a returning client, sadly my old computer is deader than a door nail so the data base is gone for now. I’m hoping to retrieve it at some point if I can. But for now it means I don’t have any ones birth info anymore sorry about that.
Please start posting questions.
Interesting the turn that the Obama administration has taken on the torture issue. I understand his reluctance to prosecute a good percentage of the CIA, those who carried out the Bush administration orders. It would not only be structurally difficult (if not impossible) but it could potentially put our country in a very dangerous situation, not just because of the animosity those who worked for the CIA would harbor against his administration and him, but it would create huge gaps of intelligence. It’s not easy to replace experts in Islamic terrorist groups, Middle-Eastern languages and culture. The loss of a large group of these experts through trials and potential incarceration would leave us vulnerable to another terrorist attack.
It has always been my psychic impression that the Bush administration would be tried by the international community for war crimes. Logistically this makes the most sense as the treaties that were broken were international and any sitting president would have a nearly impossible time going after the administration that came before it due to politics, especially now when our country is hugely divided and Obama is the first African American to become president. The situation is a fireball for him. His best option is to declassify everything the Bush administration did and hand over everything to an international tribunal where there would be a feeling of neutrality as well as justice.
At first I was very disappointed in some of the statements he made about the issue of the Bush administration especially in light of the fact that they knowingly encouraged and ordered torture. I was angry, felt he didn’t have enough of the fighter in him which had been my fear early on when choosing between him and Hillary. I felt Hillary would have gone after the Bush administration with a vengeance. However the more I thought about it, the more I realized Obama released the information and was allowing it to float to the surface first and reality would make it impossible for him to get anything positive done for this country if he just went after the Bush administration on this issue when there are so many other things he needs to fix as well and he wouldn’t be able to attend or get anything important passed like health care reform or new packages to save our economy or education, you name it. His heart would be ripped out by the Republicans and eaten in some freaky Aztec ritual if he attempted to prosecute Bush or any of the cells (administration) that made up his collective brain. Or the Republicans would sic bipolar Glenn Beck on Obama with a .22 gage rifle. Obama has to be as careful/pragmatic as he is idealistic and this is a difficult if not impossible line to walk. But if anyone can do it, the fact that he’s a member of the Pluto in Virgo generation gives him a great chance.
Best wishes and many blessings to all you fine people,
