Volume 807 - Cold reigning king...


Friday   May 31, 2002 


"The president of the United States went over. And he said gee, I wasn't myself
  because I suffered from jet lag.  If you can't go to Europe and play [while] hurt,
  what are you president for? Why don't you stay in Texas if you can't fly to Europe
  and represent the interests of the United States?"
        --James Carville, Crossfire, 05/30/02

 The foggy dew

"In this atmosphere of leader-spawned national panic, imagine what would happen if a
 heavily armed, black-clad prowler were found planting a bomb at a civilian power plant.
 Surely the story would be 24-7 in the national media, right? Tabloids, networks, talking heads
 would be screaming the news to high heaven: "America Under Attack! Terrorists in Our Midst!"

 Unless, of course, the heavily armed prowler happened to be -- wait for it -- a member of the
 U.S. military. And unless the incident occurred in Jeb Bush's satrapy of Florida. Then all you
 would see is small story in a provincial paper, the Savannah Morning News, which last week
 told the curious tale of Specialist Derek Lawrence Peterson, 64th Armor Division, who was
 nabbed for planting a bomb in a power station in Jacksonville, Florida."

 Up until now, I admit that I've disliked George W. Bush. I've disliked him for the shady way he
 gained power, for his pretense of being "a uniter, not a divider" even as he pushed an agenda that,
 arguably, 75 percent of the American people do not share. For his secrecy, smugness and sheer laziness.
 For being a pampered frat boy accustomed to having others do his bidding. For calling to mind what
 F. Scott Fitzgerald (through Nick Carroway) said about Tom and Daisy Buchanan: "They smashed up
 things and creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness or whatever it was
 that kept them together, and let other people come in and clean up the mess they had made."

bart, buddy....

I'll take 24 over The Shield any day.
I couldn't get through the first episode of the Shield.

Basically, The Shield seems to glorify bad cops.  I'm sure there's some corners cut out there.
Not sure I wouldn't do it myself. But it shouldn't be glorified as the standard.  And it can backfire:
we had a whole raft of bad guys released from jail in LA because of a crooked cop.

Just MHO,

Lar, I feel you didn't get a good taste of the show. Vic doesn't just cut corners.
He'll do anything, including murder a cop, when he feels like it's necessary.
In his mind, he's a good guy, which is the show's hook.

Remember in The Godfather when Michael was tormented at having to order
the most atrocious murders, but all he wanted was to save his father's life?
Vic is like that, doling out justice when he has no right to.

He's the best cop in the force, without a doubt.
By busting certain drug dealers, and forcing bribes out of others,
he maintains a manner of control over what I assume is East LA.

He's kinda like Sipowicz on NYPD Blue, but he's more real.
I've never seen the star of a series murder a cop in the show's premier before.

Still, I know my tastes can't be everyone's ...

"(Enron) is not the result of sin; this is the way markets work. It is simply what happens
 when regulatory oversight is systematically shut down, bought off and defunded;
 when business journalism becomes salesmanship; when investment banking becomes
 salesmanship; and when political power is a prize that goes to the highest bidder.

That's EASY!

1. Gerald Ford

2. Ronald Reagan

3. Dan Qauyle

4. Smirky

Ford was installed by the GOP after Dick got caught and Spiro was avoiding jail time.
The GOP needed a moron with political credentials to be their puppet while they pulled his strings.

Reagan was phase II in the GOP plan to dominate the world with thier propaganda and corruption..
Thye figured phase I with Ford almost won against Carter so they found a has been actor without
a brain to puppet while they raped the American public and treasury.

Quayle was phase III. The GOP hoped that Qauyle would ride King George I's coat tails into
the Oval Office as yet another puppet.  Now we have phase IV with the stupidest moron of a
blow monkey frat boy having been  INSTALLED in the Oval Office.
The GOP just figured, "piss on it" and had the supreme whore court install the worthless sack of skin....

So hopefully this answers your question;
"Why put a brainless, can't-think, can't-speak chimp on the throne?"

It's like the Wizard of Oz.. The GOP figures that the sheep will be mesmerized by
the flaming gas bag of a moron, while the GOP (Unka Dick) pulls all the evil levers for the GOP...

 The Peculiar Duplicity of Ari Fleischer
  Defense Secretary
    by Jonathan Chait

  Click  Here

"But what Fleischer does, for the most part, is not really spin. It's a system of disinformation
 --blunter, more aggressive, and, in its own way, more impressive than spin. Much of the time
 Fleischer does not engage with the logic of a question at all. He simply denies its premises--or
 refuses to answer it on the grounds that it conflicts with a Byzantine set of rules governing what
 questions he deems appropriate. Fleischer has broken new ground in the dark art of flackdom:
 Rather than respond tendentiously to questions, he negates them altogether."

 Bart Cop,

 I was a Marine for six years, and served two tours in Southeast Asia('Nam & surrounding).
 Never did I, or any member of my unit, receive orders to kill women and children!!!

 The officer(s) responsible for this should be Court Martialed and thrown in prison for murder.
 To me, and anyone who has been in the military(especially in the field), an order like this would have
 to be disobeyed as unlawful. I cannot believe this is happening in our military, especially, in our name!
 This regime is promoting our soldiers become murderers.


is always worth a read.

Subject: The BBC: English language non-whore media

I suggest to your readers that if they are fed up with Faux and the glossy network news,
that they pressure their local PBS or cable-access station to pick up BBC World News.

Unlike their American counterparts, BBC correspondents and cameramen actually work for a living.
You will also get a point of view  different from the American media's pre-approved one.
Support the English rate-payer: watch BBC news.


You mean Karl Rove doesn't write their scripts?

Well, then, ...how do they know what the news is?

 Will Bush miss the clues this time?
    by Marc Perkel

 In spite of all the FBI warnings and briefings, President Bush missed the clues and claims that
 the events of September 11th couldn't have been foreseen. Now the world is on the brink of
 nuclear war. It is my hope that the President doesn't miss the clues again and allow a nuclear war
 to occur. It is time for some real leadership from Washington to take a VERY active role in
 preventing what surely looks like a planet wide disaster.

 If I were president I would make it clear that if either side uses nuclear weapons that they face
 an instant nuclear attack by the United States. I would make it clear that whoever uses nuclear
 weapons first will be vaporized before they have time to regret their decision.
 We can not sit back and do nothing and allow a nuclear war to occur.
