Question:  "Separation between Church and State."  Who coined the Phrase?  Give up?  Answer:   Thomas Jefferson - one of the founding fathers of this geat Nation and a creator of the U.S. Constitution and the First Amendment to that same Constitution.  Thomas Jefferson, in 1802, wrote a Letter to the Dansbury Baptist Convention, referring to the First Amendment to the US Constitution.  In it he said:

"Believing that religion is a matter which lies solely between man and his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legislative powers of government reach actions only, and not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their Legislature should 'make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,' thus building a wall of separation between Church and State."

Richard Bruce Cheney (born January 30, 1941) is a former United States Congressman, Secretary of Defense, the 46th Vice President of the United States. He also served as White House Chief of Staff, and in the private sector was the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Halliburton Energy Services. Every decision he has ever made has been wrong.

Early life and family

Cheney was born in Lincoln, Nebraska, to Richard Herbert Cheney and Marjorie Dickey (sic). His family later moved to Wyoming. In 1959, he matriculated to Yale University, where it was thought to be impossible to flunk out. After flunking out, Cheney returned to Wyoming in 1960. He ended up graduating from the University of Wyoming at the age of twenty-four, the perfect age for a young black man to serve his country in the army.

In 1964, Cheney married Lynne Vincent, his high school sweetheart. Mrs. Cheney would go on to become an accomplished dick in her own right, serving as the Chair of the National Endowment for the Humanities, a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, and a writer of filthy pulp novels about lesbian sex and rape. The Cheneys have two daughters, Elizabeth and Mary, also dicks. Mary Cheney is an attractive though somewhat tomboy-ish femme lesbian. Her partner, Heather Poe, looks a bit like Dad. Mary Cheney and Heather Poe have one child.


Cheney and the draft

Cheney is sub-species of dick known as the "Chicken Hawk,” which is a person who publicly supports a war but is too much of a pussy to fight in it himself. There is a scene in the movie "Office Space" when one of the characters, Michael Bolton, is sitting in his fancy car listening to hardcore gangsta rap, and then the black guy pulls up next to him, and he rolls the window up. A chickenhawk is this sort of person.

In 1963, with the draft board ramping up, Cheney enrolled in Casper Community College (one of the finest institutions of higher-learning in Southwest Casper), and received his first student deferment. Later that year, he got his second student deferment. In August of 1964, Congress passed the Gulf of Tonkin resolution, escalating American military involvement. Twenty-two days later, Dick married his wife, and a few months later received his third deferment. In July, 1965, President Johnson announced he would double the number of draftees. Cheney moved quickly, entered graduate school that year, and received his fourth student deferment. This was quite a sacrifice, as grad school is known to be extremely boring. Cheney received a “hardship exemption" in 1966 when he and his wife conceived their first child. By the next year, he was no longer eligible for the draft. It had been a long process, but Cheney learned a valuable lesson: if you get in a jam, you can usually get out of it by having sex with somebody.


Political career

Cheney’s career is notable for having taken place almost entirely within a "bubble." He began his career as in intern for Richard Nixon and was campaign manager in 1976 for Gerald Ford -- a campaign that managed to lose a governor of Georgia. Dick was then elected to the House, where he served until 1989. Part of this service included voting against making the birthday of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. a holiday, voting against calling on South Africa to release Nelson Mandela, and voting against the creation of the Department of Education -- the kind of congressman that would be produced if George Wallace and Barry Goldwater had a child who inherited the worst of each and then grew up to be a congressman and also lost his hair.

In 1989 Cheney became Secretary of Defense for President George H.W. Bush. In defending the decision not to take Baghdad and topple Saddam Hussein at the time, he said:

“I don't think you could have done all of that without significant additional U.S. casualties...And the question in my mind is, how many additional American casualties is Saddam worth? And the answer is, not that damned many.”

This is known as “irony.”

In 1995, Cheney decided he’d given enough to his country and thought it was about time to do something for himself. For the next five years, he served as CEO of Halliburton, one of the top companies in the world for anyone looking for military equipment and willing to pay three to five times above retail.

In the spring of 2000, Cheney was put in charge of George W. Bush’s Vice Presidential search committee. Like all great romantic comedies, the dick Bush was looking for to fill out the ticket turned out to be right under his nose all along. If Bush was going to be the worst President in United States history, he would need a partner ready to step in and carry on that tradition if something should happen to him.


Vice President

Immediately following the 9/11 attacks, Cheney was kept out of the public eye in an undisclosed location, partly for security reasons and partly because it was thought that America had been through enough already. Some (Lynn Cheney) have been quoted as saying that Cheney has a charming side. This was on display in June of 2004 when, while walking by Senator Patrick Leahy in the Capital, he said “go fuck yourself.”

Cheney is also known as the world’s biggest supporter of the Iraq War. And it is certainly true that the consistency of his acumen and judgment about the war have been unequaled. Most famously, on May 31, 2005, he claimed that the insurgency in Iraq was “in it’s last throes.” Roughly 2000 U.S. troops have been killed since then.

In 2006, Cheney shot his 78-year-old friend in the face while quail hunting -- a practice some call "an accident" and others call "good clean fun." The firearm used was a “Perazzi” shotgun, an expensive model from Italy considered “gay” by many in the shotgun community. Cheney's friend, Harry Whittington suffered a minor heart-attack, though he survived. Cheney announced that he “accepted full responsibility,” which meant announcing that he “accepted full responsibility.”

On October 28, 2005, Lewis “Scooter” Libby, Dick’s Chief of Staff, was indicted for obstruction of justice in the Valerie Plame investigation. After being sentenced to 30 months in prison, in July of 2007, President Bush commuted Lewis “Scooter” Libby's sentence. It is commonly assumed Cheney was behind this decision. The move outraged many, including, no doubt, several inmates who were probably looking forward to getting know a nice, fit, well-kept new inmate who hadn’t let his body go.

With the really fun part of war in Iraq winding down, in May 2007 Cheney gave a speech warning Iran about its nuclear program. Many took this to be setting the stage for a war with Iran, this one even possibly involving nuclear weapons. This alarmed many people, even those in the dick community. One theory about why Cheney would care so little about nuclear war and the casualties it would cause is because, in fact, Cheney actually died several years ago, and is just too big of a ass to leave, instead simply willing his body to carry on through sheer evil will.


Post-vice-presidency

While generally former Presidents and Vice-Presidents have nobly decided to step back from the public eye, particularly when it comes to being critical of the next administration, Dick Cheney has little history of being even moderately scrupulous, much less noble.

As of summer 2009, Cheney has become Matthew McConaughey's character from Dazed and Confused who still hangs around his high school because none of his actual peers want to hang out with him. That is, minus the good looks, hair, and general mobility.

Regularly, Cheney spoke out in press conferences refuting President Obama's policies on torture and national security, going so far as to criticize the Iraqi troop withdrawal that occurred at the precise time his own previous administration had planned.

In many countries, when an elderly person has completely lost parts of their memory, constantly needs attention to survive, and accidentally shoots someone, they are committed to some kind of assisted living facility. In the United States, they are given more cable news airtime.

As of March 2009, Cheney's approval ratings were at 30% approval and 63% disapproval. Currently, Cheney is no longer employed by the Government or engaged in any policymaking, meaning that over 60% of Americans actually disapprove of his job of doing nothing.

On Monday night, former Vice President Cheney received heat for his recent attacks against President Obama from both sides of the aisle.

On MSNBC, Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Florida) posited that Cheney's criticisms are just a scheme to boost book sales for his upcoming book release and tour.

"You know, honestly I think he's just trying to prime his book tour, his upcoming book tour," said Grayson. "He got $2 million to write about his memories, and he's trying to stay in the public eye in order to push sales for his book. That's what I think."

"I'm wondering, though, who's doing the introduction to his book? Is it Mephistopheles? I don't know -- maybe it's Satan." Grayson has previously wondered if the former vice president was a vampire.

Later in the evening, on "Larry King Live," Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) offered a more reserved, but still damning critique.

"He's in your party," King asked, "what about Dick Cheney's complaints?"

Paul smiled uncomfortably. "Well, I think he had his eight years and he caused a lot of trouble for our country, and he perpetuated a war in Iraq that was unnecessary and wrong headed. So I would say it would be best he not be so critical right now."
