Welcome to S-Q

I want to welcome everyone to S-Q blog, since it seems to be chosen as the natural successor to "From the Desk of Patrick J. Fitzgerald." While we all will miss it, it's understandable that he would need a break from the daily maintenance. So hopefully the PJF owner will join us, on a more flexible time schedule.

I especially want to thank S-Q for stepping into that breach. I remember when she was new to blogging, asking questions, and now has put up a terrific site, taken charge and we will barely miss a beat. After all, Libby's indictment is not an end to the travesty and mockery this Administration has made of democracy and moral values.

Since the indictment we've had the Walter Reed scandal, the firing of Justice Dept lawyers ostensibly for not chasing down Democrats and thereby muddying the waters for Republicans to continue their shenanigans. Then a report that the FBI misused their powers. Alberto Gonzales is on the hot seat. If ever someone looked and sounded stupid, he's it. Almost a deer in headlight expression. Bush's lap dog wondering what went wrong.

You forgot to read the Constitution, that's what went wrong.

And now Halliburton, after stealing the taxpayers blind, is moving to Dubai. So much easier to skim off the top from a more sympatico country. With their oil profits building their kingdom, are they poised for global takeover?

Just when I thought it was getting better. I want to be optimistic and say it is. Because while it was going on before, now it's headline news and people are paying attention. With 24/7 news sources when will people learn that whatever you do in secret today will be blasted into sunshine tomorrow.

This administration needs to learn a basic lessen our mothers taught us: Don't do anything you don't want to see on the front page of the New York Times. (And how ironic, that's exactly where their undoing is happening.)

And a heaping thanks to all the bloggers that keep the light shining in all those dirty dark corners. Here's a challenge: Every day, every one of us should do something positive for our country. Write a letter, volunteer, read an article, stay informed. We are our own best hope.

I want to work toward a really positive 2008 election, electing someone we can be proud of.

Mahalo,
Captain Kit

Thanks, y'all. I will be rounding up the usual suspects - and sending them all to Dubai.

A friend once said to me, "No one wants to be the first one to push him down the stairs but everyone wants to be the second."

Like the burst dam that flooded Katrina, justice begins with a dribble and then it explodes into a stampede to see who can punish the most evildoers. You're correct, S-Q, justice will come. Libby is only the first.

Hi, s-q and everybody. How go's it? It was a beautiful, hot sunny day here in San Diego. I soaked it all in, too. ;D

Thanks Captain! And hello JB's! I'll try to post more regularly on Prissy (along with the radio show-Ray our young producer will come get me and Betty -chop chop if we don't get in there and tape it;-) and here on S-Q's place when I run across something interesting.

I'm glad we have a successor blog that we can all hang out on. I would really miss the camaraderie and support for the issues we all care about that we were lucky to have on FDPJF;-)

Soldier boy and I did a talk for a church group tonight-very nice folks who wanted to know how they could help end the war:-)

Prissy:

Thank you for accepting to be an author on this blog! :)

Folks:

I have invited 6 very special people to write and/or post articles on my blog. Thus far 4 have accepted and the other 2 will shortly.

Each of these individuals have something unique to offer to all of us! ;)

Our country is at war, our economy is a mess, we have unqualified people in offices that never should have been put there, we have major corruption and scandals in our country.

We, Americans, have much at stake and as Captain Kit said, it didn't end when Libby was convicted. No, that is just the tip of the iceberg!

With the help of my friends, I hope to make this a blog that we can work together, to put our ideas together, to take back our country!

Any ideas and/or suggestions are always welcome!

Learn something, share something, have fun and blog on Justice Bloggers! :)

I will put up a post, once everyone has joined and I will identify each author's strengths to this blog. :)
