Musings of PBC

..to attempt to "clarify", estimation of Bush is that is a self centered , callous , calculating sort who does NOTHING for others unless needed to get something for self but has NOT the capability to actually FORMULATE the whateverings....He has "street smarts" of sorts, the type that have allowed hi, especially due to family connectivity, to wonk whatever he whims for own selfish whateverings...He cares NOT a whit for OTHERS....he really does NOT TRULY CONNECT, he is a user and abuser and self centered...ego centric/figures just HIS just due just he IS...sociopath fits him...

He has shown that disdain for "others" , he gets cover and protection from those inside the circle for there is the devil to pay if deemed disloyal and he does extract revenge at many levels with NO REGRET. He washes others hands in so much only to have his own back scratched/hands washed as well...if nothing in it for him, he walks away...

He gets aligned via ego stoke and even likely realizes that IS done to some extent but figures he actually is smarter than those others ...More than willing to have others do the "grunt" work at ALL levels....He has learned and honed his skills of glad hander to an artful dodgerability of responsibility....No way did Bushie come up with the neoconic agenda, it was easy for him to go along with it as he figured it served him and they did that in large part by knowing how to stoke/stroke him....

He MAY think much was his, but doubt he that delusional but when it was percieved and sold as a sure fire WINNER, he was more than eager/willing to have it set in motion for it would settle some other scores of his...Still figure Cheney is a truely nefarious character....Rummy as well as such as Wolfowitz , Perl and others who have never really gone far away even if not in "original " positions...Newt G. is another one to watch out for, another who NEVER EVER REALLY WENT FAR AWAY let alone away at all.....

There are a whole range of issues just how Bushie did go along and why...some of it quite the outcome of his dysfuntional family environment...He was the screw up, and they let him know that estimation often in exasperation and etc but they did continue to clean up after him time after time after time but did realize him as an embarassement, a major disappointment and actually esteemed as not all that bright/etc....

He was out to show "them" and Dad too and part in the mix was, he too himself , out of family loyalty/values --which they do have but are semi perverse but abided by none the less...the fact that Poppy yet got derided in regards to the first Iraq venture for NOT getting into the heart of Bagdad, well Junior took that as an offense against the family honor/etc and too, he wanted to show Dad that HE could "fix" things in hopes of making Dad proud /etc....that indeed was in the mix plus the grandiose sell he got sold of going to be THE one attributed with remaking the ME ..a nyah to the Carter/Clintons and even Regan who gets credit for bringing down that wall and ending the ColdWar...this was to surpass them all....but they/the plans/the agenda of HIS MAKING or HIS CALCULATIONINGS, he merely got to be the one who "signed off", it was expected to be an overwhelming SUCCESS and he was to receive full credit...

Interesting that so many were MORE than willing to have it be such--they, those that formulated and etc...were content to just get so much implemented and remain anonymous , they in essence did not need PUBLIC adulation but they held the greater power...George, a facade, the front man...an important enough role of sorts, for he was to front it all for the PUBLIC so that the public would buy on to it all and lets face, according to polls, some 30% still do even after so much HAS become known, revealed and how wrong so much has gone.

"Taking S Step Forward"?

The new catch phrase from the White house is "taking a step forward"

This is coming from someone who for the past five years has asked us to look back to 911 to give credibility to his " God lead" War of Miss-instruction, Wars of Terrorism, and War for Drugs (Northern Alliance Afghanistan)

Is he asking the families of the 3,000 dead soldiers, the thousands of wounded, or the tens of thousands civilian casualties to step forward with their lives? For the American people to step forward to pay for the trillions of dollars of dept that he has gotten us into, while his friends and family enjoys record oil, military contracts, and heroin production? George Bush and Dick Cheney please take a step forward, down....... Down from office and face the consequences of your irresponsible leadership. So that we Americans can take a step forward and not be left to pay for your blunders alone.

A Christmas Story - Bah Humbug!

A Christmas Story

'Twas the night before Christmas--Old Santa was pissed.
He cussed out the elves and threw down his list.
Miserable little brats, ungrateful little jerks.
I have a good mind to scrap the whole works!

I've busted my ass for damn near a year,
Instead of "Thanks Santa"--what do I hear?
The old lady bitches cause I work late at night.
The elves want more money--The reindeer all fight.

Rudolph got drunk and goosed all the maids.
Donner is pregnant and Vixen has AIDS.
And just when I thought that things would get better
Those assholes from the IRS sent me a letter,
They say I owe taxes--if that ain't damn funny
Who the hell ever sent Santa Claus any money?

And the kids these days--they all are the pits
They want the impossible--Those mean little shits
I spent a whole year making wagons and sleds
Assembling dolls...Their arms, legs and heads
I made a ton of yo yo's--No request for them,
They want computers and robots...they think - I'm IBM!

Flying through the air...dodging the trees
Falling down chimneys and skinning my knees
I'm quitting this job there's just no enjoyment
I'll sit on my fat ass and draw unemployment.

There's no Christmas this year now you know the reason,
I found me a blonde. I'm going SOUTH for the season

Is everyone happy this morning?

Are you now convinced that the system works?

Even those hackable touch-screen machines from Diebold?

Well, they must work because the Dems won big and the Reps had control of them . . . so obviously we don't need to change anything there . . .which would be too expensive anyway. Right?

And now that the Dems have the house Conyers can start some REAL investigations, with subpoenas and everything . . .Right?

And we can now get our selves out of Iraq, and impeach the despicable asses that made this problem in the first place, and send them off to the Hague for their war crimes trials wrapped in chains, and repeal all the unconstitutional stuff Dubja pushed through. Right?

I don't believe it for a minute, and you shouldn't either.

This "bigwin" was because we were on the edge of actually doing something real and that had become publicly obvious. These election results will calm everyone down while we all congratulate ourselves and then go home toforget about it.

And our Fascist masters will continue along their merry way as always, but perhaps with less exposure than before.

Keep in mind that NOBODY can get elected to anything without corporate money behind them, and that money comes with the expectation of a return. This fact applies to Democrats and Republicans alike.

NOTHING has changed except that the general perception of our very real problems has now been blunted to the point where everyone will (with great relief) go home and forget about the mess yet again without actually doing anything.We certainly won this battle and it did indeed feel good . . . but I fear it is going to cost us the war in the long term. And now it is time for all to loudly proclaim that Cushman is just a crank and can be safely dismissed. It is all so sadly predictable.

William B. Cushman, Ph.D

Not likely Bill, read on............No one but no one is paying attention to this: The Bush Administration has quietly stolen the National Guard away from the states.

Our Long National Nightmare Has Just Begun: Like Cornered Rats, GOP Losers More Dangerous Than Ever

As ugly secrets surface, Bushists will turn desperate. Democracy has failed their grand schemes; token resignations like Rumsfeld's come too little, too late. Only tyranny can save their skins. Will the beleaguered neocons led by Cheney and Bush, cornered like rats, unleash their brand-new police state on their political opponents? Or will they tough it out and suck up the fines and prison sentences to come? The next year or two could go either way.

The nightmare is not over.

Bush owes troops an apology

Bush ‘appearing to be stupid’ about Kerry’s joke
By Keith Olbermann

On the 22nd of May, 1856, as the deteriorating American political system veered toward the edge of the cliff, U.S. Rep. Preston Brooks of South Carolina shuffled into the Senate of this nation, his leg stiff from an old dueling injury, supported by a cane. And he looked for the familiar figure of the prominent senator from Massachusetts, Charles Sumner.

Brooks found Sumner at his desk, mailing out copies of a speech he had delivered three days earlier — a speech against slavery.

The congressman matter-of-factly raised his walking stick in midair and smashed its metal point across the senator’s head. Congressman Brooks hit his victim repeatedly. Sen. Sumner somehow got to his feet and tried to flee. Brooks chased him and delivered untold blows to Sumner’s head. Even though Sumner lay unconscious and bleeding on the Senate floor, Brooks finally stopped beating him only because his cane finally broke.

Others will cite John Brown’s attack on the arsenal at Harper’s Ferry as the exact point after which the Civil War became inevitable.

In point of fact, it might have been the moment, not when Brooks broke his cane over the prostrate body of Sen. Sumner — but when voters in Brooks’ district started sending him new canes.

Tonight, we almost wonder to whom President Bush will send the next new cane.
There is tonight no political division in this country that he and his party will not exploit, nor have not exploited; no anxiety that he and his party will not inflame.

There is no line this president has not crossed — nor will not cross — to keep one political party in power.

He has spread any and every fear among us in a desperate effort to avoid that which he most fears — some check, some balance against what has become not an imperial, but a unilateral presidency.

And now it is evident that it no longer matters to him whether that effort to avoid the judgment of the people is subtle and nuanced or laughably transparent.

Sen. John Kerry called him out Monday.

He did it two years too late.

He had been too cordial — just as Vice President Gore had been too cordial in 2000, just as millions of us have been too cordial ever since.

Sen. Kerry, as you well know, spoke at a college in Southern California. With bitter humor he told the students that he had been in Texas the day before, that President Bush used to live in that state, but that now he lives in the state of denial.

He said the trip had reminded him about the value of education — that “if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don’t, you can get stuck in Iraq.”

The senator, in essence, called Mr. Bush stupid.

The context was unmistakable: Texas; the state of denial; stuck in Iraq. No interpretation required. And Mr. Bush and his minions responded by appearing to be too stupid to realize that they had been called stupid. They demanded Kerry apologize to the troops in Iraq.
And so he now has.

That phrase — “appearing to be too stupid” — is used deliberately, Mr. Bush.
Because there are only three possibilities here.

One, sir, is that you are far more stupid than the worst of your critics have suggested; that you could not follow the construction of a simple sentence; that you could not recognize your own life story when it was deftly summarized; that you could not perceive it was the sad ledger of your presidency that was being recounted.

This, of course, compliments you, Mr. Bush, because even those who do not “make the most of it,” who do not “study hard,” who do not “do their homework,” and who do not “make an effort to be smart” might still just be stupid, but honest.

No, the first option, sir, is, at best, improbable. You are not honest.

The second option is that you and those who work for you deliberately twisted what Sen. Kerry said to fit your political template; that you decided to take advantage of it, to once again pretend that the attacks, solely about your own incompetence, were in fact attacks on the troops or even on the nation itself.

The third possibility is, obviously, the nightmare scenario: that the first two options are in some way conflated.

That it is both politically convenient for you and personally satisfying to you, to confuse yourself with the country for which, sir, you work.

A brief reminder, Mr. Bush: You are not the United States of America.

You are merely a politician whose entire legacy will have been a willingness to make anything political; to have, in this case, refused to acknowledge that the insult wasn’t about the troops, and that the insult was not even truly about you either, that the insult, in fact, is you.

So now John Kerry has apologized to the troops; apologized for the Republicans’ deliberate distortions.

Thus, the president will now begin the apologies he owes our troops, right?

This president must apologize to the troops for having suggested, six weeks ago, that the chaos in Iraq, the death and the carnage, the slaughtered Iraqi civilians and the dead American service personnel, will, to history, “look like just a comma.”

This president must apologize to the troops because the intelligence he claims led us into Iraq proved to be undeniably and irredeemably wrong.

This president must apologize to the troops for having laughed about the failure of that intelligence at a banquet while our troops were in harm’s way.

This president must apologize to the troops because the streets of Iraq were not strewn with flowers and its residents did not greet them as liberators.

This president must apologize to the troops because his administration ran out of “plan” after barely two months.

This president must apologize to the troops for getting 2,815 of them killed.

This president must apologize to the troops for getting this country into a war without a clue.

And Mr. Bush owes us an apology for this destructive and omnivorous presidency.
We will not receive them, of course.

This president never apologizes.

Not to the troops.
Not to the people.
Nor will those henchmen who have echoed him.

In calling him a “stuffed suit,” Sen. Kerry was wrong about the press secretary.
Mr. Snow’s words and conduct, falsely earnest and earnestly false, suggest he is not “stuffed,” he is inflated.

And in leaving him out of the equation, Sen. Kerry gave an unwarranted pass to his old friend

Sen. John McCain, who should be ashamed of himself tonight.

He rolled over and pretended Kerry had said what he obviously had not.
Only, the symbolic stick he broke over Kerry’s head came in a context even more disturbing.
Mr. McCain demanded the apology while electioneering for a Republican congressional candidate in Illinois.

He was speaking of how often he had been to Walter Reed Hospital to see the wounded Iraq veterans, of how “many of them have lost limbs.”

He said all this while demanding that the voters of Illinois reject a candidate who is not only a wounded Iraq veteran, but who lost two limbs there, Tammy Duckworth.

Support some of the wounded veterans. But bad-mouth the Democratic one.

And exploit all the veterans and all the still-serving personnel in a cheap and tawdry political trick to try to bury the truth: that John Kerry said the president had been stupid.

And to continue this slander as late as this morning — as biased or gullible or lazy newscasters nodded in sleep-walking assent.

Sen. McCain became a front man in a collective lie to break sticks over the heads of Democrats — one of them his friend, another his fellow veteran, legless, for whom he should weep and applaud or at minimum about whom he should stay quiet.
That was beneath the senator from Arizona.

And it was all because of an imaginary insult to the troops that his party cynically manufactured out of a desperation and a futility as deep as that of Congressman Brooks, when he went hunting for Sen. Sumner.

This is our beloved country now as you have redefined it, Mr. Bush.

Get a tortured Vietnam veteran to attack a decorated Vietnam veteran in defense of military personnel whom that decorated veteran did not insult.

Or, get your henchmen to take advantage of the evil lingering dregs of the fear of miscegenation in Tennessee, in your party’s advertisements against Harold Ford.

Or, get the satellites who orbit around you, like Rush Limbaugh, to exploit the illness — and the bipartisanship — of Michael J. Fox. Yes, get someone to make fun of the cripple.

Oh, and sir, don’t forget to drag your own wife into it.
“It’s always easy,” she said of Mr. Fox’s commercials — and she used this phrase twice — “to manipulate people’s feelings.”

Where on earth might the first lady have gotten that idea, Mr. President?

From your endless manipulation of people’s feelings about terrorism?

“However they put it,” you said Monday of the Democrats, on the subject of Iraq, “their approach comes down to this: The terrorists win, and America loses.”

No manipulation of feelings there.
No manipulation of the charlatans of your administration into the only truth-tellers.
No shocked outrage at the Kerry insult that wasn’t; no subtle smile as the first lady silently sticks the knife in Michael J. Fox’s back; no attempt on the campaign trail to bury the reality that you have already assured that the terrorists are winning.

Winning in Iraq, sir.

Winning in America, sir.

There we have chaos — joint U.S.-Iraqi checkpoints at Sadr City, the base of the radical Shiite militias, and the Americans have been ordered out by the prime minister of Iraq … and our secretary of defense doesn’t even know about it!

And here we have deliberate, systematic, institutionalized lying and smearing and terrorizing — a code of deceit that somehow permits a president to say, “If you listen carefully for a Democrat plan for success, they don’t have one.”

Permits him to say this while his plan in Iraq has amounted to a twisted version of the advice once offered to Lyndon Johnson about his Iraq, called Vietnam. Instead of “declare victory and get out” we now have “declare victory and stay indefinitely.”

And also here — we have institutionalized the terrorizing of the opposition.

True domestic terror:
Critics of your administration in the media receive letters filled with fake anthrax.

Braying newspapers applaud or laugh or reveal details the FBI wished kept quiet, and thus impede or ruin the investigation.

A series of reactionary columnists encourages treason charges against a newspaper that published “national security information” that was openly available on the Internet.

One radio critic receives a letter threatening the revelation of as much personal information about her as can be obtained and expressing the hope that someone will then shoot her with an AK-47 machine gun.

And finally, a critic of an incumbent Republican senator, a critic armed with nothing but words, is attacked by the senator’s supporters and thrown to the floor in full view of television cameras as if someone really did want to re-enact the intent — and the rage — of the day Preston Brooks found Sen. Charles Sumner.

Of course, Mr. President, you did none of these things.

You instructed no one to mail the fake anthrax, nor undermine the FBI’s case, nor call for the execution of the editors of the New York Times, nor threaten to assassinate Stephanie Miller, nor beat up a man yelling at Sen. George Allen, nor have the first lady knife Michael J. Fox, nor tell John McCain to lie about John Kerry.

No, you did not.

And the genius of the thing is the same as in King Henry’s rhetorical question about Archbishop Thomas Becket: “Who will rid me of this meddlesome priest?”

All you have to do, sir, is hand out enough new canes.

Bim Willow Speaks......................

Be sure to void this erection. Yes it seems that both democrats and republicans have a hard on for each other but it is usually some segment of the population that gets screwed no matter who wins.

With campaign advertising looking more like the Coke or Pepsi Challenge when all you wanted was a good beer, it's like shopping for shoes where they only sell shoes for the left foot and you being a right footed one legged man you can make one fit but they always rub you the wrong way.

Should we vote? Yes if for no reason other than to void the lesser of the two. If you voted your conscience you would have to vote for yourself.

Children of Men -- they stole my plot!

Movie review: Children of Men -- they stole my plot!
By Jane Stillwater

I was bored on Saturday night and went off to see the movie "Man of the Year". The plot revolved around Robin Williams running for President. It was a good movie, the popcorn was good and Williams told some really funny jokes -- far more funny than the Joke who is currently pretending to be our President.

That night, the UA Berkeley also showed a preview of the movie "Children of Men" -- a sci-fi thriller that takes place about a generation from now, when there are no more children and babies are no longer being born.

"OMG, they stole my plot! Stole it right off my blinking blog!" was the first thought that ran through my head. But then I calmed down. Probably they didn't. But even if they did, I could hardly blame them. It's a great plot. The freaking way that humans abuse children around here and pollute the air and cut aid to education and murder orphans in oil-rich regions and exploit child labor in third-world countries and chase pages around Congress, we're lucky that we have any children left at all!

Anyone with half a brain in their head could of thought of that plot. But just in case the producers of "Children of Men" want to share their royalties with me, here is the article off my blog:

What if there were no more babies?

By Jane Stillwater http://jpstillwater.blogspot.com
April 28, 2004

It was your typical peaceful day in Heaven. Babies were all lining up to get born.

"Say WHAT?" an unborn baby said to God. "You want ME to go down there and get beaten, bombed, starved, abused and amputated? Or get locked in overcrowded classrooms and babysitted by sit-coms while my mother works three jobs to keep the family afloat? I DON'T THINK SO!"

"But," replied God, "you gotta get born. It's in My Plan." "Not this little pink duck. Until human beings stop doing everything they can to abuse, torture and murder children, I'm staying right here."

Hell no! We won't go!

And no other child was ever born again.

Trillions of dollars continued to be spent on weapons of mass destruction instead of healthcare and education. Testosterone-filled men happily bombed and polluted and irradiated the world to their hearts content. But not one baby was ever born again. Are all the weapons in the world worth the price of NEVER knowing what it is like to hold a baby in our arms? It is time for the Hard-Right and the Hard-Left and the Soft-Middle to come together and work for the preservation of democracy before we all just become so much meat in the eyes of the heartless corporations who now rule our future.

Grand Old Perverts

GenderGappers 2006 – 041

What an uproar! The media, the Democrats, the Republicans, the Blogs, the whole country is focused like a laser beam on some House Pages and a dirty old man. Yes, it’s a terrible thing to sexually assault anyone. It is especially heinous to sexually assault children. Pedophilia is the pits of human actions.
But stand back and look at this situation and ask yourself if we are truly against perversion. Why is there outrage now that it is teen age boys? Where was the outrage when many women were raped in our military schools and by our own male forces in Iraq and Afghanistan? Not to mention our own forces rapes of women and men in countries we occupied. Where is the outrage as we imagine [since we are not allowed to view] the rows of flag draped coffins of young men and women that Bush sacrificed in a preemptive war and where is the outrage at the unseen tens of thousands of innocent Iraqi dead, wounded and displaced?
Where is the outrage at the continued violence against these people because of the Bush preemptive invasion? Where is the outrage that we are not safer now but have spawned generations of terrorist worldwide? Where is the outrage that Bush and his cadre not only permitted torture of prisoners but also sent them to other countries to be tortured even more? Where is the outrage that Bush lied and lied and lied and the media still say “MISLED”?
Where is the outrage at a media that mostly just sat back and went along with a “good old boy they’d like to have a beer with”? Where is the outrage that now belatedly these same media are huffing and puffing as if they really were beginning to report the truth and do their job? Where is the outrage from the many falling fig leaves exposing the scandalous conduct of the Bush administration where trusted officials of government sold out their constituents for free trips and girlies?

Where is the outrage that A.G. Gonzales has ordered Judges NOT to find Bush guilty of anything – otherwise they are unpatriotic in a time of war? Where is the outrage at the loss of Habeas Corpus? And where is the utter horror and outrage that our Congress passed a bill that prevents us from holding Bush responsible for his crimes here at home and all over the world? Where ever it is we fervently hope it appears in our voting booths, strong and decisive, in November.

I've Got Your Clarity Right Here, Mr. Bush!

You Need Clarity, Mr. President? I've Got Your Clarity Right Here!

by Steve YoungSept. 20, 2006 -- Hollywood (americanpolitics.com) --

If Bush needs clarity to interpret the Geneva Conventions anti-torture provisions - and he really means it - the next visitor to the Oval Office should be Maher Arar (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/09/18/AR2006091800883.html?referrer=email), a Canadian computer consultant who was labeled - wrongly - as a dangerous radical and "an Islamic extremist individual."

If Congress needs to hear what being held without due justice under CIA cover as it is now, the next person they need to interview is Maher Arar, who was taken by U.S. authorities and secretly rendered to Syria, where he was "...beaten, forced to confess to having trained in Afghanistan -- where he never has been -- and then kept in a coffin-size dungeon for 10 months," said a report focusing on Canadian intelligence.

If John McCain, Lindsay Graham, John Warner and Colin Powell need to confirm what they've believed all along about how wrong-headed and criminal the Bush Administration's desire to continue their definition of legal interrogation, the next persons they need to break bread with is Maher Arar and his wife - a university economist - who were placed on al-Qaeda "watchlist," without any justification.

If Hannity and O'Reilly truly want to inform their listeners and Fox News fans of what the president's "clarification" really asks for, then the next person they need to interview is Maher Arar, who will tell them that "an innocent Canadian was tortured, his life was put upside down, and it set him back years and years." That is if he can get that out before he is interrupted by a litany of talking points by the host.If the American public needs to find out what could happen to an innocent person, to them or to their loved ones under the justification of "KEEPING AMERICA SAFE ™, meet Maher Arar.

Sometimes there's a failure to communicate. Sometimes there's a failure of strategy. Sometimes there's a failure of men and government. Unless we shine the light on these failures and the brutality they generate, the lessons we can learn from them to make us a better people and better country will whither in the dark.

Before we let the Senate compromise their morality and principle, let's all shine the light on Maher Arar. We owe it to him. We owe it to us.

Dear Babs & George

Please come pick up your spoiled brat kid. We've had to put up with 6 yrs of his temper tantrums, lies and thievery and we just flatassed can't take any more. That snot nose little brat is wreaking havoc with everything he touches & he needs to get his ass out of Dodge.....errr....DC.

He is too damn lazy to read or ask questions, instead choosing to let that brain damaged ViceP of his tell him what to do. ViceP is aided and abetted by Dum Rummy, as you well know, & let's not forget the vindictive, Nazi, Karl Rove. Hell's Bells George, you fired that scumbag because he was so vile.

What kind of parents are you to allow your brat to make such a mess without a word of reprimand? If that little monster was my kid I would have been in DC right after 9-11 giving him a good ass kicking. For sure, there's no way in hell I would have stood by during the 5 yrs since then and let that monumental mountain of lies roll off his smirking lips unhindered. If you two had an ounce of decency in your greedy bodies, you would have helped remove him from office at least 4 1/2 years ago. Hell, you know that Jeb was the one who was supposed to run until the stupid one, along with this Nazi pal, Karl Rove decided that they should rule the world. Even then you could have prevented your drunken, coke sniffing son from stealing the presidency. Instead the entire family pitched in & helped install that nasty little brain fart in the Oval Office.

You raised your goofy son without an iota of humanity or appreciation for the value of a human life. As long as he doesn't physically do the murder and other dirty work, he thinks he's as pure as new fallen snow. Isn't it about time that you let him know that he is a traitor to this country, a war criminal and a disgrace to the human race?

And dear heavens, can you please tell Junior to ditch that phony Christianity. What the Sam Hill kind of church do you attend that condones so much lying, cheating, stealing, torturing and murdering? Good grief Babs, are you human?

Do you two free-loaders hate this country so much that you will leave this wacky kid of yours in charge for another two years after listening to the inane speeches his old war lords have him reciting? Don't you realize that your little boy thinks that no law applies to him? In his feeble mind he is king of the world. Haven't you noticed that the world hates the brat?

Aren't you the least bit ashamed of what you dumped on an unsuspecting world?

Now that little worm is threatening & blackmailing Congress to get them to pass laws, retroactively, non-the-less, to cover his criminal ass.

Look at what your frat boy did to Afghanistan and Iraq. This bloody mess has resulted in the killing, maiming or injuring thousands of our own soldiers, likewise for thousands of innocent men, women & children. It has left others living in conditions that are not fit for animal or man. Do you feel anything when you see the numbers?

Ah, that was a stupid question. You don't see the numbers because Junior has that hidden away from public view too. Judging by your past comments Babs, you probably think they are better off.

Take a look at Lebanon after that nasty little creep shipped Israel hundreds of tons of weaponry to blast that little country off the map. Think about the tiny children who will be killed, maimed or injured by the cluster bombs that he furnished & that still litter the dismal landscape. No sense of shame yet?

Speaking of children, how are we supposed to teach our children the difference between right and wrong when they get a daily dose of your corrupt son? When they hear Cheney continue to lie about WMD's in Iraq? When both still try to connect your old buddy Saddam to 9-11? AND when they see stories about the corruption and war profiteering by you, your son and that gang of old war lords around him?

How about that Bin Laden family? You're still cozying up to them, selling out our country for that rich bunch of thieves. By the way, where do you have Osama hidden?

The only thing that is on your son's brain is showing Poppy what a 'man' he is and how many more taxes can he eliminate for himself and all the rich SOB's who have supported you and your family for years. One would think that people who are stealing money by the millions wouldn't mind parting with a few bucks to help keep the country that has been so good to them running. BUT not you greed mongers. You'd rather see children starving in the street than to pry a few nickels from your greedy paws.

Well Babs and George, I have news for you. Your cowardly, scaredy-cat son is no man and never will be. He's no war president. Hell, he's not even a cowboy! He IS a totally incompetent fraud & a complete pansyass. On top of that he is a cold blooded murderer.

This country and this world has been so very kind to your entire family so it's about time that you returned the favor. That lying, blackmailing son of yours has to go. Please do the world a favor and help remove him from office before that fool decides to push that 'nukular' button. He is the terrorist that we have to fear most and that "we" includes you. Surely you have noticed his strange behavior lately. He can't remember which lie he has told from one day to the next. He's getting to be more like Cheney every day. He doesn't give a damn that the whole world knows he is lying and committing crimes.

He's drinking Babs. Is he also medicated? Zonked out on Prozac? We're not sure but the symptoms are all there.

So please drop what you're doing and come pick up that son of yours before he ties on the mother of all drunks and blows us to bits. Make Junior the happiest man alive and take him home to his pig farm. Tell him that he doesn't have to play president anymore. Do it for your country Babs & George! Do it for the 2,684 soldiers who have died for your son's lies!

You're not to be so blind with patriotism that you can't face reality. Wrong is wrong, no matter who does it or says it. Malcolm X (1925 - 1965)

I like to believe that people in the long run are going to do more to promote peace than our governments. Indeed, I think that people want peace so much that one of these days governments had better get out of the way and let them have it. Dwight D. Eisenhower (1890 - 1969)

Make a choice Congress People !

It's George or It's Our Country

I have always been told to keep a polite tone when I write to a public official but I can't take this crap anymore. Polite my ass! Why in the Sam Hill should I be polite to people who seem to be aiding and abetting the destruction of the country that I love. I can't stand the lies, deceit and the murder being carried out in my name. Every day it's another blob of half truths, schemes, propaganda and just plain bald faced lies. Just when the hell is this congress going to say stop?

I love my country and I'll be damned if I am going to sit quietly by while this lying bunch of thugs continue to destroy it from the inside out. Hell, anyone with a lick of common sense knows that the flag waving, smirking, fake Christian who squats in the Oval Office is as phony as the day is long. He is also a bald faced liar, a cheat, and a cold blooded murderer. That man has incited more hatred than any other human being in recent memory ......in the name of God, of course. I'm not even sure that Adolph Hitler or the Civil Rights movement of the 60's stirred up as much vile racism, hatred and intolerance. I don't know what kind of Christianity George Bush practices but it's damn sure not the kind that I heard about all my life.

Our Constitution is in a shambles and nothing is being done to prevent further abuses of this precious document which has been the heart & soul of this country for the past 200 plus years but to Bush it's just a goddamned piece of paper. From the obscene Patriot Act to the illegal spying on citizens George Bush has declared himself to be "The Decider" with no regards for the laws of this land or any land for that matter. I am damned sick of turning on the so-called news to see the propaganda of the day and that little self-anointed dictator flipping us a bird and flapping those lying jaws. Bush is not "the Decider". He is our employee and he has screwed this job up so many ways that it completely defies my imagination as to how this Congress continues to ignore his incompetence, his lies and his law breaking actions.

It's damned time that someone stood up to that evil, conniving, miserable excuse for a human being & the gang of thugs who surround him. It is way past time for you in Congress to get off your dead asses and do the job you were hired to do. I remind you of the oath that you took:

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.

Have you forgotten that oath? Is there any reason what so ever for the governing body of this country to roll over for a wannabe dictator? Are you being blackmailed? Is that what's really behind Bush's (Karl Rove's) spy game? Are you being threatened? If not, what the hell is your excuse for allowing these vile people to trample all over the Constitution and abuse people in and out of this country?

George Bush has violated his oath of office so many times that I wonder if anyone has been able to compile a list of all the atrocities that he has committed.

The Neo-con branch of the Republican Party has taken us down the road towards total destruction. They have practiced systematic deception, bald faced lies and encouraged the worst attributes known to the human race. The remainder of the Republican Party plus the Democrats & Independents have rolled over and played dead for these fear and hate mongering bastards.

If it is blackmail or threats, (and I have become convinced that this is indeed the purpose of the illegal tapping of phones and other dirty games) then it's time that someone in Congress to stand up and spill the beans. I don't believe this country will survive much more of this insanity unless someone, a real patriot, stands up to these murdering thugs and tells this country the whole truth.

Today 2618 of our soldiers have died in Iraq for the Bush/Cheney lies. That's the figure that the Pentagon will admit to. We already know that they have lied about the number of troops injured, providing figures around 4,000 when indeed hospital records showed the figure to be closer to 20,000. Do we also have as many as 20,000 dead? Is the 2618 figure a lie too?

In April 2001, less than three months after Bush was installed in the office of the presidency I was subjected to a visit by the Secret Service (SS) because of a letter that I wrote to a Florida Legislator in defense of several gays students who had been verbally attacked by that legislator in his office. At that time I posted to many people on the internet that this was a sign of things to come under this nasty man and his sidekick Dick Cheney. Less than a month later several grandparents were arrested for simply trying to attend a public event where Bush was appearing. For the first time in the history of our country people were required to sign a loyalty oath to attend events where Bush was present. Who the hell died and appointed this prissy little liar God?

I cannot believe that anyone in our Congress can claim to not know about these obscene violations of our Constitutional rights because hundreds and thousands of us wrote to you, called you and faxed you to ask what the hell was going on. We, the U.S. taxpayers were and are paying for most of the joy rides that Bush has taken to campaign and represent Republicans and only Republicans. We who disagree with 'his royal majesty' have to stand behind fences and get pepper sprayed just for being there.
What the hell is this? The United States of America or The Gestapo Revived?

Bush is not on vacation. He's drinking and this is the only way to cover it up.... at least most of the time. The rare exception has been the appearance of the giant boil that appeared overnight amid claims that he scratched it, while he was waiting for the Supreme 5 to step in and do their share of the dirty work in December 2000. It took a Band-Aid that covered half the right side of his face to cover that scratched "boil" (bruise!)

Next came the Great Pretzel Fight and Bush lost! There have been a few more scrapes, bruises, etc....(mountain bike wins!), that could not be covered with make-up and the puppet masters have laughed off as one clumsy event or another.

He's drunk...dammit! And what time he's not drunk he's probably popping pills! How else can you explain the obvious decline in brain function in the past ten yrs or so?

It would not be necessary to mention the never-ending vacations except for the fact that September 11 happened. Junior was sitting clueless in a classroom in Florida while his evil crew did their dirty work and thousands of U.S. Citizens died....useless, senseless deaths that surely were allowed to happen or were planned and carried out by this good for nothing administration.

Since then we have seen trampling of the Constitution as never before. We have been subjected to just about every kind of terrorist threat that Karl Rove & Dick Cheney can dream up. Once these corrupt men tested the waters to see what they could get away with, they went into full swing. You see the awful results everywhere you look these days. And Congress remains in a rollover state of mind with very few exceptions.

Illegal war? No problem. Congress votes and votes again for millions, billions. What the hell do they care? Are their pockets and off shore accounts filled and waiting? If not Congress, you can bet that the Carlyle Group and Halliburton have provided generously for their bought and paid for stooges. The hell with the American people who have no health insurance, no jobs and no rosy outlook for the future.

Illegal Spying on citizens? No problem.... A couple of senators can throw together a bill to make it legal! Anything for George.

Wanna torture a few rag-heads? You Betcha'. Speedy Gonzales and his lapdogs will twist and fuck over the Geneva Convention to help get those secrets from those twelve year old terrorists.

Rig a few elections? No sweat. Gotcha' covered George. The Republican ownership of these 'made for fraud' machines was no accident. Think Katherine Harris, Jeb Bush and Ken Blackwell. George's poodles have it covered.

More powers for the self-anointed dictator? But of course! Help yourself, George. Haven't you heard Speedy Gonzales & Dead Eye Dick explain that when the pResident does it, it's not illegal.

And if all these obscenities were not enough, way back in Florida, Katherine Harris has just announced that God selects the "rulers" of this country and apparently she expects to be one of the select few, even if the Bush Brothers have thrown her to the wolves. Hey! They still have those damn machines. 'Miracles' do happen with those things.

I'm here to tell you that if there was a god he would have cleared this temple over 5 years ago! Not only would he have cleared it, large numbers of this administration and it's enablers would now be a big fat hot tub of lard frying merrily in hell. A real god would have to rewrite Revelations to deal with this bunch of murdering crooks! Even if you are a gung-ho Christian, you have to be wondering what kind of god is advising George Bush.

Let's back up to the Geneva Convention for a minute because there are a whole slew of people in and around this administration who should be impeached, removed from office, prosecuted for high crimes and misdemeanors, prosecuted and convicted for war crimes and crimes against humanity & then imprisoned for life with no possibility of parole.

Then to give them the justice they so richly deserve, all their assets should be seized to offset some of the damage they have done. If their familes go hungry...tough. Get a job at McDonalds!

Loss of money and power is the only thing these murdering thugs will ever understand. It is the only way that most U.S. citizens could feel that justice was served.

Get your asses in gear Congress. Times awasting! I'm 64 yrs old and I want to live to see this Congress cleaned up and the White House emptied of all the garbage that has gathered there in recent years.

You have to make a choice........... George Bush or our country. To me that choice is a no-brainer.



GenderGappers 2006 – 035

SLIMING A JUDGE A traditional roast features a guest of honor and a group of people who say good natured, humorous, outlandish and sometimes crude remarks about the guest of honor all in a spirit of fun. And most important, the roastee gets to answer and roast her/his roasters in turn.

Rovian politics uses the roast motif but his game is nothing like a roast. It lacks the good humor, the grace and the give and take. It adds vicious lies and promotes hatred turning them into political depth charges against any person who dares to say, do or appear in the same area or organization, as anyone who is against the Bush policies.

Once Rove initiates the initial slime it is issued to the lap-dog columnists and TV pundit-gabbers as talking points. This keeps the slime moving all over the media and blogs so many people are exposed to it. Most remember the Swift Boat slime that was so successfully used against Kerry in the last presidential election. Nearly every day there is another person or organization slimed by the Republican slime lords.

On this Women's Equality Day , August 26, 2006, we celebrate the latest person to be slimed, and nominate Judge Anna Diggs Taylor as Woman of the Year. Finally someone stood up and called Bush what he is -- a criminal. Judge Taylor, a federal judge in Detroit, struck down the National Security Agency’s domestic surveillance policy last Thursday. She called it unconstitutional and illegal abuse of presidential power.

Of course the Bush Justice Department quickly filed a notice of appeals which effectively delays Judge Taylor’s ruling to immediately halt the NSA Program. Just as quickly, the judge was denounced for being Liberal, a woman, a tool of the ACLU and of course, their stock in trade, a person who wants to help the terrorists.

It is terrible when public figures are lied about as it encourages the nut cases to plan harmful actions. We’ve seen how judges have been a target in the recent past and must applaud the courage of Judge Taylor who surely knew what kind of Hell her findings would bring.

We all must lend our support to her and a group has already set up a web-site where we can send Judge Taylor our words of support and find a link to her entire decision.

Where have all the Pro-Lifers gone: Long time passing...

By Jane Stillwater http://jpstillwater.blogspot.com

The Middle East is on fire. The Dogs of War have been loosed and they are ripping the eyes out of the skulls of dead babies. And just to show you that I am no Mel Gibson, babies are being butchered in Israel as well as Afghanistan, Palestine, Iraq and Lebanon. Have our "leaders" gone crazy? I lie awake nights crying because I'm so frustrated that there is NOTHING I can do to stop this gory dismemberment of our young.

But there is one group of people who DO have the political clout to stop this insane and bloody maiming of babies. You know who I'm talking about. The same people who haunt the malls and websites of America with photos of dead fetuses. The same people who lament and be-moan abortions.

Pro-Lifers? Baby protectors? Where are you now?

This savage and brutal slaughter of innocents in the Middle East is one of the most -- if not THE most -- horrendous disasters to strike the infants of our world since the end of World War II. Not since Herod....

Pro-Lifers? Baby protectors? Where are you now?

The world's babies are being cruelly mauled, exploded, massacred and dissected. Partial-birth abortion is not even CLOSE to being as extreme and nauseating as this.

Pro-Lifers? Baby protectors? Where are you now?

PS: Speaking of double standards, "Where have all the Christians gone?" And the Jews? And the Muslims? Have they "gone to neo-cons cons every one"? Sing along, boys and girls. "When will they ever learn? "When will they -- ever -- learn?"

A Bush-Cheney neo-con with a lust for power in his heart and blood in his eye is NOT a Christian. An Osama bin Ladin neo-con with a lust for power in his heart and blood in his eye is NOT a Muslim. And a Olmert-Peres neo-con with a lust for power in his heart and blood in his eye is NOT a Jew. They are wolves in sheep's clothing. And make no mistake. WE are the sheep. "Bon appetite."

The Decider & The Stem Cells

I doubt that "The Decider", (George Bush's pet name for himself) knows what a stem cell is. Sen. Brownback (KS) certainly seems to be in the dark & may have even topped "The Decider" when he appeared on the Senate floor with his own little hand sketched pictures of little boys & girls with big smilie faces.

One would think that Sen. (Dr.) Bill Frist would have taken the time to explain to Bush and Brownback that embryonic stem cells are derived from a fertilized egg that is less than a week old. It is nothing more than a cluster of cells that would easily fit on the head of a pin.

Paul Krugman (NY Times) wrote a column recently in which he points out that the people running the government of the United States are the ones who were considered the "crazies" during the Poppy Bush administration. For once I agree with Mr. Bush the First ..... these damn fools are crazy and that includes his son!

Our roll over and play dead Congress is just as bad because they allow the incompetent, don't give a damn man, to walk all over the Constitution while making life and death decisions with no checks & no balances. Just what kind of religion does Bush practice that allows him to send thousands of our soldiers to kill & be killed for bald faced lies? How does he justify the murder, maiming & crippling of innocent soldiers & civilians who have never done us any harm while he is protecting a cluster of frozen cells that have no face, no hands, no legs, no blood, no brain and most certainly no smilie face as depicted by Brownback in his cutesy sketches.

Just goes to show that our religious fanatics are just as bad as their religious fanatics.

Proudly lowering the level of political discourse -Rude Pundit

George Bush Comes Down To the Quarters:The worst thing about George W. Bush's speech to the NAACP yesterday is it was just a pussy speech. It was filled with an idiot's view of history, the kind of "Oh-shit-here's-what-I-just-learned" bullshit that you get in a college freshman history course, the kind of dawning enlightenment horny white dudes use at the bar to try to impress the black chicks they wanna bang.

Talking about slaves as "founders" of America, Bush said, "These founders literally helped build our country. They chopped the wood, they built the homes, they tilled the fields, and they reaped the harvest. They raised children of others, even though their own children had been ripped away and sold to strangers." Oh, really? Hey, welcome to the party, motherfucker.

And then there were the usual absurd feints at religiosity, statements so self-evidently lies that somewhere up above, St. Peter gently held back Jesus's hair while he puked into the Ark of the Convenant (why not?). Said the President, "My faith tells me that we're all children of God, equally loved, equally cherished, equally entitled to the rights He grants us all."

Somewhere, in a secret prison in Crazystan, Eastern Europe, a captured Afghani getting his nuts power-drilled by a CIA agent is awfully happy to hear that Bush's faith guides him in such a strong moral direction.Taken as a whole, the speech was meant to demonstrate that Bush "gets it" or some such shit. See? He knows things sucked for black people back in the day: "Slavery was legal for nearly a hundred years, and discrimination legal in many places for nearly a hundred years more."

See? He gets that the majority of the black community thinks Republicans are savage wannabe slaveowners who'd just as well create a legal caste system in the nation. Talking about the Medicare prescription drug "program," Bush said, "Look, I understand that we had a political disagreement on the bill. I know that." See? He knows it. He said he knows it. Don't start tellin' him he doesn't know it, 'cause he'll let you know: he knows.And our goddamn President clings to a catchphrase like that old lady yellin' "Where's the beef?" until the day she died.

Here's Bush on education: "I like to call it this: We need to challenge the soft bigotry of low expectations. If you have low expectations, you're going to get lousy results." C'mon, at this point it's like hearing Steve Martin say, "Well, excuuuuse me." Just sad.

The whole speech was just a campaign stop. Bush may as well have said, "Here's all the shit I've done for you people - with home and business ownership, with AIDS, with other shit, shit you know about. Why don't you negroes love me? Why?" No challenge, no confrontation, no defiance, just an incompetent attempt to appease and get some good photos surrounded by the darkeys.

If you go back to Bill Clinton's 1996 speech to the NAACP's national convention, you read the words of a man who doesn't need to try to demonstrate to African Americans that he understands the absolute basics of history and struggle. What you got was the moral authority (yeah, that's right) of a man who put race less in terms of "here's what I can do for you people" and instead in terms of a struggle that all of America has a stake in.

Qualitatively, the difference between Clinton and Bush talking to the NAACP is the difference between listening to Carnegie Hall concerts by Gerry Mulligan and Kenny G. They're playing jazz on roughly the same instruments in the same space. But only one of them gets it.

The Reality Beneath the Flag Waving

by Paul Craig Roberts (excerpts)

I have made it clear in my columns that Bush supporters
are not true conservatives.

They are brownshirts with the same low intelligence
and morals as Hitler’s enthusiastic supporters.

Many Americans are so unsophisticated
that they refuse to believe anything bad about their country.
They regard acceptance of unpalatable truths as disloyalty.

This failure of American character
is why Bush has been able to get away with
- transgressions that scream out - for his impeachment
and trial as a war criminal.

It is amazing that Bush supporters think we have
a John Wayne military, when according to news reports,
recruitment problems have resulted in the military
- accepting felons,
drug users,
low IQ high school dropouts,
and illegal Mexicans promised green cards for signing up.

Apparently, the same people who make America’s streets
unsafe for Americans make Iraqi streets unsafe for Iraqis.
In response to the declining caliber of new recruits,
some of our best troops are refusing to reenlist...................

To this day the Bush regime and the neocon nazis have not told us
the reason for their invasion of Iraq, the destruction of its towns
and infrastructure, and the slaughter of its citizens.

Every reason Bush has given has proved to be a lie.

There is no more reason for US troops to be shooting up Iraq
than to be shooting up Canada, Scotland, Holland,
Spain, Taiwan, Florida, Virginia or California.
We are killing Iraqis for no other reason than
- that they resist our invasion and occupation of their country.

It is proof of the collapse of American morals and the fallen character
of the American people that the American public
and its elected representatives in Congress refuse to rein in
the Bush regime and to hold it responsible for its monstrous crimes.

America has become a land of evil.
The rest of the world hates and despises us.
And we are going to pay a terrible price for it.
Bush’s belief that our superpower status makes us immune
to the opinion of others goes beyond hubris into insanity.

Dear John Kerry

I get more emails & letters from John Kerry than I do from that greasy Republican who is my represenative in DC. So I figured that he deserved one of my rants.

TO: John Kerry

Your emails arrive in my mailbox on a regular basis begging for donations. Why?

You “Cut and Ran” from the presidential election of 2004 after promising to see that all votes were counted. You allowed that election to be handed to the worst human being who has ever occupied the office in spite of the fact that the statistics showed that you were winning. Not only that but you have voted time and again to support the corrupt, lying agenda of our wannabe dictator, George Bush. So why the hell do you think I should donate one stinking penny to any of the DLC approved Democrats in or running for Congress. Most of you jokers look like Republicans to me. Heaven knows that I have seen enough corruption, lying, cheating & murdering by that gang of thugs in the past 5 years to last a lifetime. Yes, I said murdering because that is what you have done and are doing to the people of Afghanistan & Iraq, all in support of that thug who squats in the White House. It was all a bald faced lie and I think you knew that when you handed over the control of the Congress to that mad man, the wannabe “war president” This is not a war. IT’S COLD BLOODED MURDER and I will not give one penny to help your crazy fools to continue this in my name.

You don’t listen to us. You don’t represent us and haven’t for a long time. You sat on your comfortable ass for a long time supporting the corporate takeover of this country. You have allowed millions of jobs to be moved out of the country. You have even allowed the corporations to import workers, forced the American worker to train them, then fired the American worker. That is just about as despicable as it gets.

You have given billionaires tax break after tax break while holding the poorest of the poor to a minimum wage that wouldn’t even provide a place for a family to sleep much less buy food or pay other utilities that you millionaires take for granted. You are aiding and abetting in the effort to destroy the backbone of this country, the working people. It looks as though you are trying to develop a slave class in the United States. How dare you turn our country backwards to look like a third world dictatorship? How dare you?

You have voted yourselves over $31 Thousand dollars in raises since the last time you raised the minimum wage. God almighty John Kerry….. Don’t you know that millions of U.S. citizens live on half that amount for a full year? Millions live on less than poverty level wages and that number is multiplying by the day. Your Good Old Boy Millionaire’s Club has been provided the finest insurance money can buy, given perks that would make Bill Gates green with envy at times, & allowed you to pretty much work when and if you feel like it. Not only that but you have set yourself up for pensions to live like kings for the rest of your life, not that many of you will need any help to do that.

You really have the gall to send these damn, condescending, beg letters begging for the pittance we ordinary folks have to live on every month. Don’t you greedy politicians ever think about who you are begging money from? Do you ever think about how much you are out of touch with the working stiffs in this country? You know, the people who stock the grocery shelves, drive the garbage trucks, wash your clothes & scrub your toilets? Do you think that we all live like you with the limos, the drivers, and the maids?

Mr. Kerry, I wouldn’t even write a letter to support you in any way after the way you turned your back on those of us who tried to get you elected. You ran like the cowardly Bush ran from his military service. If the Democratic Party is stupid enough to nominate you again, I will sit out this election.

You jackasses are destroying this country from the inside out and have made us the laughing stock of the world in the process by supporting a man who doesn’t know his head from his ass. Aren’t you ever the slightest bit embarrassed at the humiliation that we have suffered and continue to suffer at the hands of George Bush and that gang of thugs who surround him? Don’t you have any conscience regarding the thousands of our soldiers who have been wounded, maimed or killed for the lies?

You want money from me John Kerry? Do you remember what Tricky Dick Cheney said to Sen. Leahy on the Senate floor. Same to you John Kerry….. same to you!

Oh, what the hell? Fuck you John Kerry!

Cut & Run Liberals

I want to be perfectly clear about this. We liberals really do want to cut and run. I admit it. We are cut and run liberials, just as Karl Rove alleges. More than that, I am proud of it and encourage more Americans to join us. We are liberal/progressives and, damn it, we want to cut and run:

We want to cut and run from the borrow and spend, borrow and spend economics of the GOP that have piled an additional $4 trillion in debt onto our children, grand children and great grand children.

We want to cut and run from the unholy alliance between the GOP and energy companies that have left us at the mercy of a bunch of medieval Islamic tribal leaders who run their own countries like feudal states and treat their own people -- especially their women -- worse than Americans treat farm animals.

We want to cut and run from a national health care system designed by and for giant health care and pharmaceutical interests, that enriches a few while leaving 45 million Americans without affordable health insurance.

We want to cut and run from a government which, over the past six years, has become not only increasingly closed to public scrutiny and accountability, but overtly hostile and suspicious of citizens who insist on either.

We want to cut an run from a style of governance that not only plays on fear and petty prejudices, but cultivates and exploits them for cheap political gain. The cynical, dishonest purposeful pitting of majority populations against minority groups on the grounds that they don't share “American values,” and then later deny responsibility for the entirely predictable destructive consequences of those tactics.

We want to cut and run from policies that view science and scientists as adversaries whose findings must sometimes be suppressed, while embracing, even endorsing, religious dogmas that have no basis in fact whatsoever.

We want to cut and run from GOP economic polices that have handed the already wealthy a couple of trillion dollars in tax cuts while leaving working Americans payroll tax virtually untouched.

We want to cut and run from GOP economics that argue – with a straight face – that the minimum wage of $5.15 an hour should not be raised to a still unlivable $7.25 an hour because doing so would “hurt low wage workers.”

We want to cut and run from policies that scoff at mandating substantially higher fuel millage standards, even as the fossil fuels run out and the effects of global warming become more apparent with each passing day.

We want to cut and run from policies that justify turning “the land of the free and home of the brave,” into place where none of us can any longer feel sure that the government isn't listening to our private phone calls, reading our emails or isn't keeping an eye on us from a pole-mounted camera on the corner.

We want to cut and run from an administration that wraps inconvenient truths in the opaque blanket of national security while justifying selective disclosure of classified information for purely political reasons -- such as the outing of CIA agent Valerie Plame, and the now discredited disclosures that Iraq had tried to buy uranium ore from Niger.

We want to cut and run from policies that allow religious extremists to determine what medical procedures or family planning medications women will be allowed access to.

We want to cut and run from policies that allow our government to decide which American citizens will be allowed to enter into legally recognized committed relationships, and which will be banned by law from doing so.

We want to cut and run from policies that encourage counseling and treatment for Americans suffering from alcohol addiction, but incarceration for those suffering drug addiction.We want to cut and run from cynically selective policies that treat some dictators as friends of America and others as enemies requiring a deadly dose of regime change.

We want to cut and run from policies that are increasingly militarizing entirely domestic matters, such as internal terrorist threats, border control and domestic law enforcement, particularly the gathering of intelligence on political groups and movements.

We want to cut and run from policies that allow industries government is supposed to regulate for the public good, to write the very rules under which they will be regulated.

Do we want to cut and run from Iraq? I wish the hell we could. But that fat is already in the fire. Liberals understand we can't cut and run from Iraq. But whose fault is it that we're stuck there now? Not ours, that's for sure. We would like to see US troops leave Iraq as soon as possible -- but not in a way that would make matters worse for ordinary Iraqis than our invasion already has.In the meantime we are not about to let the very neocons that got us into that mess shift the blame onto liberials who oppose the war.

You guys started it and that dead chicken is hung around your necks, not ours. So, Karl, stop the blame-shifting and wear it like man.

But Karl is right when he calls us "cut and run liberals." As you can see the list of things we do want to cut and run from is a long one. We are cut and run liberals. And proud of it.

A couple days after the Bush Administration announced the death of Zarqawi, for the umpteenth time, came the news that the safe house where this terrorist lived had produced a miracle. Mr. Zarqawi had left all sorts of information about his operation for Lucky George. Computers and documents were found in the rubble with tons of information that was going to put Al-Qaeda out of business!

Amazing isn't it? George Bush must be the luckiest man alive. First came Operation 9-11 when the WTC collapsed in it's own tracks after being burned so viciously by jet fuel that it melted steel, a feat that had never happened before and hasn't happened since then. Lo and behold, out of the burning inferno came a passport with the name of one of the terrorists with not a speck of damage! Now we have Operation Zarqawi producing an absolute treasure trove of information that survived two 500 lb bombs that pulverized the building.

I'm not really surprised since this same inferno left Mr. Zarqawi with only a few scratches on his face which made it child's play to identify him, assuming, of course, that this is the final death of Mr. Zarqawi.......IF it is the mad terrorist!

After all, George has been so lucky that only a few of those "Liberal Media" types have questioned the disappearing /reappearing leg or the chubby face/skinny face on Mr. Zarqwai! They haven't mentioned the film of a supposed Zarqawi who didn't know how to fire a gun while wearing his shiny new, white Nike shoes! OR the gold ring that defies Muslim teachings? What Luck!

Yep! In all my years I have never observed such luck in another person as what I have seen with George Bush. Damn, who would have ever thought that the Supreme Court 5 would step up and appoint a president? Who would have thought that U.S. citizens would so readily accept the electronic voting machines and no one but a few Liberals would dare question a machine that has been used in banks for several generations producing paper receipts could suddenly NOT produce that same receipt in an election? What luck!

Has anyone else ever announced that if you were not with the man occupying the Oval Office that your were with the terrorists? Has anyone else ever bankrupted the country, yet be looked upon as a god like figure? Good old Christian George! Have you ever encountered any other "Christian" who was responsible for so much hatred & division within his own country?

All he has had to do is smirk, mangle the English language & make stupid jokes to turn the attention away from the fact that he is destroying this country from the inside out with his bumbling, incompetence. Yet, the talking heads make excuses for this poor little momma's boy who has never had to accept responsibility for any of his own actions or the lack of action such as we witnessed on the morning of Sept 11, 2001.

Did you ever in your wildest imagination think that the conservative Republicans who screamed with righteous indignation every time a Democrat suggest a bill that would benefit lots of people would go on the craziest spending spree in the history of man kind that benefited only a few? AND that they would get away with this spend crazy routine for over 4 yrs before people started asking questions? What kind of luck is that?!

Who would have ever thought that an entire Congress could have been ordered to heel like an obedient dog & that they would fall in lockstep with this bumbling moron? Spy on U.S. citizens? No problem. Arlen Specter will introduce a bill that will not only excuse your crimes but will make it retroactive. Damn this sounds like a Babs (Barbara) Bush special order to protect her poooooor little boy?!!

Yep, Bab's boy is one lucky son of a bitch and this Proud Liberal Bitch is freaking tired of all the excuses for the Bush boy crimes.

It's about damn time that George Bush's man made luck comes to a screeching halt. Just how much more of this crap are you going to take? Are you going to sit on your ample arses and allow this pathetic excuse for a human being to totally destroy this country from the inside out, aided and abetted,for another two years, by the most corrupt Congress to ever sit in those hallowed halls? Do you sincerely believe that if we manage to elect a Democratic majority in either the House or the Senate that it will change anything?

I suggest to you that the only change we will see is the face lift...... a more polite, bi-partisan
Congress that will still be beholden to the mighty corporations. As you have seen there is no bi-partisanship when Republicans are in charge. It's their way or no way..... "you're either with us or agin' us" to more or less quote George of the Jungle! BULLSCHITT!

You've seen what 5 plus years of that has done to this country, it's citizens and it's good name. Are you going to allow it to continue? Or do you see, now, that we need to get the corporations out of the business of government and we damn sure need to get rid of Lucky George!

Consider this: Can we, state by state, outlaw donations (bribes) to anyone running for public office?

Can We The People take the needed steps to see that never again will a 'Lucky George' and a corrupt, one party Congress come together to try to destroy our country from the inside out?

Can we reach the stage where, if a Supreme Court decides to make a law that applies to only one person, one time, that we will impeach the guilty party & remove them from office?

Most importantly of all, can we get back to a Congress that truly represents the people and not a party or a single man or woman?

Lucky George needs to be impeached, removed from office, prosecuted for the crimes he has committed, all his ill-gotten assets seized to offset some of the damage he has done and given a life prison sentence without possibility of parole. The same goes for most of his administration and a large number of Congress people.

Loss of money and power is the only thing these crooks will ever understand. Lucky US if we can ever make it happen!

Good Riddance Tom Delay

Good Riddance to the sorriest piece of corrupt Texas trash to ever invade the halls of Congress. You make old foul mouth Lyndon Johnson look like a kindly Sunday School teacher. Tricky Dick Nixon looks like the Pope next to your ugly smirking face.

I'm going to give you the same advice that I gave Kat House Harris when she whines about Liberals. For starters you wouldn't know the meaning of the word liberal if it walked up and bit you on the ass. I suggest that you invest in a copy of Roget's Thesaurus and let some "truthiness" (Thanks again Stephen Colbert) enter that foul, corrupt brain of yours.

Liberal is described as Generous, Tolerant, Enlightened, Broadminded and Charitable.

Conservative on the other hand is described as Stingy, Greedy, Biased, Reactionary, Bigoted, Narrow-minded, Miserly & Regressive. That's you Tommy boy! Additionally, you are a nasty, vindictive, mean Son of a Bitch who would probably blow your own mother's brain's out if it enriched you in any way.

The hypocrisy and the lies that spew from your mouth is beyond belief. If there was a god he would have you on a skewer doing a slow roast in hell for an eternity. I cannot think of any other human being who deserves it more than you, not even Osama Bin Laden!

Jesus Christ was a Liberal and proud of it. If that man was alive today he would have thrown you out of the temple years ago. You, on the other hand, would be attacking him with your vile name calling, the same as you have done to people who got in the way of your corrupt agenda. If Jesus was here today you would be blaming him for all the evil that you have conducted throughout your life, just as your are blaming liberals now.

You have the balls to call yourself a Christian. You gotta be schittin' me! If you are a Christian, I am the Virgin Mother. Just ask my kids! You could turn Jesus Christ against Christianity if you were an example of said religion.

You, Tom Delay, are one of the most despicable human beings alive today. And I am probably giving you way too much credit by calling you a human. If our forefathers could come back today and pass judgment on your actions over the years, you would be lucky to get away with a tarring and feathering followed by a good old fashioned hanging. You are a traitor, plain and simple and in every sense of the word.

I am a Liberal, Tom Delay.......... Proud Liberal Bitch to be exact. I wouldn't wipe my ass on the likes of you. When I see nasty, vindictive, vile, pigs like you it makes me wish that there was a hell of the kind that you rabid right extremists tell me that I will face. 'Revelations' would have a field day with your rotten, lying ass!

In ending allow me to say this. If there happens to be a heaven and IF you, George Bush, Dick Cheney, Condi Rice, etc., are examples of what will be there with me, I fucking refuse to have any part of it!

GOOD RIDDANCE! May this country never again have to tolerate the likes of you.

Hot Damn! George need a boost in the polls so we killed Zarqawi again!

Is Tony Blair insane? Is CNN bonkers? I got up this morning and turned on my TV to hear Blair giggling and the headline running across the screen that Al-Zarqawi has been killed for the umpteenth time! CNN was running commentary about this bad guy being killed in Baghdad and showing a map of Boston! Maybe I turned on my TV at the wrong time but I found Blair's giggling to be downright weird. This guy seemed to be so excited that he probably peed his pants behind the podium.

Miles O'Brien is practically having an orgasm as he announces that "Plenty of ordinance was applied to this building." This is military terms people, sez Miles!

Posting friend Puma Claws said, "Yeah, I just saw that on the Yahoo news. Ain't that the one-legged dude they already killed 3 or 4 times? Yanno, the one they killed in Jordan and then he hobbled on over to Iraq where they shot him in the lung a couple of times, so he hobbled to Iran to get his lungs sewn up, so he could get back to Iraq and get blown up a couple of weeks later, and then they killed him once or twice after he got blown up, and now he died again. Kewl, yanno"

Yeah Puma, Kewl! Hot Damn!
