" 'Axis' scoffs at Bush Speech"
-- top headline in today's USA Today
Yeah, didn't everybody?
Who can take the simpleton seriously?
Even our allies are laughing at us, wondering why we let the stupid
son of a Bush claim victory in 2000
when the whole world knows the Bush Family Evil Empire fixed the election with the help of a crooked court.
Kristol Clear: Billís a Hypocrite
by Smoking' Joe Conason
Mr. Kristol, editor of The Weekly Standard and ubiquitous television commentator, says he regularly takes
large sums from corporate interests for making speeches. His Enron buck-raking was arranged by Irwin Stelzer,
a confidant of Weekly Standard owner Rupert Murdoch who doubled as the coordinator (or bagman) of the
energy giantís so-called "advisory board." During that period, The Weekly Standard led the cheering for energy
deregulation and attacked Enronís critics, but only after the company fell did the magazine (parenthetically)
reveal its editorís lip-lock on the Enron sugar tit.
ain't bound for glory
by Mahir Ali
Seldom before in the history of human warfare have so many in the so-called free world
owed so much to so few. Even Franklin Roosevelt, the only US president to be inaugurated
three times in a row, and Winston Churchill may not have derived quite as much benefit from
the evils of Nazism as George W. Bush has from the antics of Al Qaeda.
But what can we do?
The Bush Family Evil Empire owns the press.
The Bush Family Evil Empire owns the courts.
The Bush Family Evil Empire runs the military.
The Bush Family Evil Empire is so powerful, they're in Al Gore's house, illegally.
What can we do?
"Bring it on."
--a senior administration official, to reporters who asked about the GAO's threat
of a lawsuit to obtain information about Vice President Dick Cheney's energy task force.
Well, sure, it's easy to be brave about an upcoming court fight
when you own the crooked judges who will eventually decide.
How cocky would they be before an impartial court?
Brothers at it Again
by Gene Lyons
Asa Hutchison was interviewed on KUAR-FM, Little Rock's NPR station, on Jan. 25.
Host Lisa Ferrell asked him about "rumors" that the Bush Administration paid Afghanistan's
Taliban rulers millions to suppress the cultivation of heroin poppies before the Sept. 11 terrorist
attacks. "Did we make payments to the Taliban?" she asked.
"No," Hutchinson said.
What a lying bastard (and super-Christian) Asa Hutchison is.
He knows damn good and well Bush gave the Taliban tens of millions in May.
Asa, why are you lying?
Is that what Jesus would do?
Would Jesus lie so the Herod Family Evil Empire could get more frankincense and myrrh?
Good job, Gene.
George Bush's delusion
[Bush's] exploitative falsehoods extend into the domestic arena. The "economic security" of Americans
is not best served by yet more tax cuts, as Mr Bush proposes; he has already squandered the Clinton surplus.
Big business cannot be trusted to lead the fight out of recession; just look at Enron. A new "culture of
responsibility" will not derive from the same old trickle-down economics, unregulated corporate greed,
wasteful and destructive energy and environmental policies and bent campaign financing.
ďThe guys from Enron are not nice. They
are simply Familiar. Unlike black inner-city youths who
rob convenience stores who seem scary, the Enron guys are the people you went to school with.
If a thousand inner-city black youths robbed a thousand convenience stores every day for ten years,
they still would not have stolen as much as the Enron executives.Ē
- Dana D. Dlott
The Bush Family Evil Empire motto is "Never steal anything small."
Ever wonder why the media is so easy on Pretzelboy?
...it's a payoff!!
"In 2000, when Karl Rove called GE Chairman Jack Welch to guarantee that a Bush Administration
would be extremely generous to media conglomerates that were sympathetic to the Texas governorís
presidential campaign, it was a notable moment in history. If only this once, Rove wasnít lying."
That's why Welch pressured NBC News to call the race for Governor Blow Monkey.
That's why Fox Whore News hired Bush's cousin to call the race for him, too,
even tho Gore had more popular votes and more electoral votes.
It's also the reason that one-note Russert got an 11-year contract extension
BFEE spends $1.6M for AntiDrug Super Bowl Commercials

The "War on Some Drugs and your personal freedom"
I'm glad the government found time to arrest 750,000 people for marijuana violations last year,
but cannot find the dicks who mailed the anthrax letters.
What utter horseshit.
The illegality of drugs is what makes them profitable.
Pot would be 20 cigarettes for a dollar if it was legal,
but since there's a risk, pot goes for $1000 a pound and up.
Does buying Budweiser support terrorists?
No, because beer is legal, you morons.
Pot is illegal only because it's illegal.
The government makes money from illegal pot.
If people could grow pot on their own land, the feds wouldn't get a cut.

Action Kept Silent
Subject: a matter of principle
Cheney said the administration's stance is the
same as it was last August,
when investigators sought similar information. The GAO eventually backed off.
"What's re-energized it now is the question
of Enron and some efforts by some of
my Democratic friends on the Hill to try to create a political issue out of what's really
a corporate issue," Cheney added on ABC's "This Week."
"What Enron's all about is a corporate collapse, maybe malfeasance in office, and that will
be dealt with. ... But if the principle was valid last August, the collapse of Enron should not
be permitted to undermine the principle," he said.
So... Cheney says that since the People wanted
more information before, last August, about his
underhanded backroom deals with energy companies, and because he trumped them with the principle
that he is a constitutional officer and not, therefore, within the reach of the GAO, even though the Enron
catastrophe has occurred which casts new doubt in the direction of such backroom meetings, the principle
should hold. The principle (that an officer of the constitution is outside the reach of congress) is more
important than the people's right to know what goes on, on their dime, with regard to their energy policy.
And the huge Enron scandal, the huge event by which the content of these secret meetings becomes
newly of interest to the people makes no difference: the tragedy doesn't effect the principle.
Using this logic, then, 9/11 cannot be used to
justify the evaporation of civil liberties. It is a core principle
of our nation that one is innocent until proven guilty, so Cheney will want to get right on the horn to Ashcroft
and remind him that principles trump bloodlust--and he might want to remind him that the principle that one
has a right to privacy in America would make it problematic for the FBI and CIA to go wire tapping everyone
who didn't vote for the team Crisco in 2000. Cheney might, in fact, want to review the principle of equal protection
as pertains to residents of anywhere outside the state with the bad voting machines that "won" his team the White House.
I'm so thrilled to know we Americans have not elected so principled an individual.

Subject: Jebby Bush
Great coverage on the Noelle Bush drug bust.
But in listng all the nefarious activities of Klan Bush, you left out
one very important encounter with the law---that of John "Jebby" Bush, the 16 year old son Jeb, who was caught
in his Jeep in the mall parking lot with his girlfriend. As David Corn put it in his article, Jebby was violating Florida's
sodomy law but eventually wasn't charged. Still, this encounter with the law shouldn't be left off your roll call of
Bush Family Evil Empire violations.
Since Jebby is Noelle's brother, and as you pointed
out, P has had his own problems doing donuts on the girlfriend's
lawn, etc., it looks like all three of Jeb's kids now have had brushes with the law.
Sanda, not only that, but check out the BFEE jeep connection!
Jebby breaks sodomy laws in a Jeep,
"P" ran donuts in some girl's yard with a Jeep,
and Pickles made her fiance assume room temperature while in her Jeep.
