Dear God or Whatever Amorphous Force For Justice There Is In the World: Right after you inevitably call Dick Cheney to account for his war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan, please get quickly to George Bush, who in 2012 charged $100,000 to speak to Helping a Hero, a Texas-based charity ostensibly providing homes to amputees and other severely wounded veterans which may just have ripped them off instead. Bush also got a $20,000 private jet to take him there. A year earlier, his wife Laura had collected $50,000 for speaking to the same group, so it was a pretty good haul. The former head of the charity, who has been under investigation, said it was "great" to get Bush for the modest 100 thou because he usually charges $250,000.
