Subpoenas – the untold story!

Who knew what and when? Why did they
make that decision? What was their motivation? Were
they making their own choices or just following orders
from higher ups? The current national headlines are
calling for the heads of Karl Rove, Dick Cheney and
even the President. Here in Orange County we had similar
pleas for the heads of Sheriff Mike Carona and Orange
County DA Tony Rackauckas. The reality of all of these
“witch hunts” are driven purely by biased “political considerations”.
Many are friends of the opposition. Many just like to
cause their names to appear in print or on television.

The inquiry goes something like this: “Are you a
witch?”, NO! “Ok, is any member of your family a
witch?” NO!, “OK, so you are saying that you have
never known any witch in your entire life?” NO!….
I am saying I am not a witch and no member of my
family is a witch! “Hmmm, then you are saying
basically that you have never known a witch, never
met a witch, never dated a witch, never attended a
coven meeting, never watched a television program
with witches and in fact are a non-denominational
church going person of good repute…who denies
any connections to the ‘Wicked Witches of the West’
or any affiliate organizations?” What do you mean
by Affiliate Organizations Senator?

So by now everyone should have the point the if your
name is Ben Veniste or Schumer or Feinstein……your
questions might be a bit contentious. Your tone might
be a tad strident. Your attitude a bit harsh. Let’s put
it this way….they are not asking mom politely to meet
for Thanksgiving Dinner here.

The reality is – that there was a “Watergate”…thank
you Richard Nixon for being the “putz” that you were
in this regard! People like Hillary Clinton and Fred
Thompson were the legal eagles that did the research.
We still remember the Democrats piling on the likes of
Halderman, Erlichman and the rest. It was sad. John
Dean the saddest…as the turncoat with the sexy wife
…..who did what? How about those McCarthy hearings?
Those were popular television fare. What happened to
the Warren Commission? They never got much play on the
TV did they? Why do you suppose? The Waco hearings
were the best we have ever gotten to see. There never
were open hearings on Whitewater….wonder why?

Ok…there are reasons to have subpoenas….valid, true
and honest reasons. But to what end and what purpose?
Public Inquiry should always be demanded by the Citizens
…no matter what community. What we disdain….is the
political forays into the realm of watching Fox News…
with its yelling and screaming or MSNBC with its Hardball
yelling and screaming or CNN with its cynical low key…
whisper campaigns “ the president is a jerk…
ya think?” “He seems in big trouble now….!”

All in all when bureaucrats steal money, misappropriate
funds for others, use their power for personal gain,
molest children, perform a capital or felonious crime
….then….and only then we probably need the subpoena
….but till that day?
