"When I put my hand on the Bible, ...when I
put my hand on the Bible,
that day when they swear us in, ...when I put my hand on the Bible,
I will swear to not ...to uphold the laws of the land."
--Dubya, Toledo, Oct. 27, 2000 (sanfords.net)
In a serious blow to U.S. plans for war, Turkey's parliament speaker nullified
the legislature's vote Saturday to allow U.S. troops to open a northern front against Iraq.
Speaker Bulent Arinc, known as the Katherine
Harris of Turkey, voided the vote on constitutional grounds,
ruling that a majority of legislators present had not voted in favor. Arinc then closed parliament until Tuesday.
Polls show as high as 94 percent of the
Turkish public - oppose a war
and deputies were under strong domestic pressure to reject any U.S. troop basing.
Secret document details American plan to bug phones and emails of key Security Council members
The United States is conducting a secret 'dirty tricks' campaign against UN Security Council delegations
in New York as part of its battle to win votes in favour of war against Iraq.
Details of the aggressive surveillance operation,
which involves interception of the home and office
phones and the emails of UN delegates in New York, are revealed in a document leaked to The Observer.
"This means that I am the baddest.

-- Roy Jones Jr (light heavyweight) after beating John Ruiz (heavyweight)
I didn't see the fight (it was $49) but
they say Jones was so in-control,
he taunted his opponent who outweighed him by 33 pounds.
Jones beat up everyone in every weight division
he's been in,
so he gained weight to beat up people bigger than he is.
Jones is so f-ing fast, he fights with his hands below his
You think you have a free shot at his face, so you throw a punch,
but Jones is so fast he'll either block it or move out of the way.
Faster than even Ali in his prime, when Jones throws a punch
you don't even see it until his hands and back below his waist.
All praise to Roy Jones Jr.
Lennox Lewis was ringside for the fight. What was his reaction?
"Roy Jones is a worthy heavyweight. I
was very impressed
with the way he handled himself. Whether he can do that
against me is another matter entirely.''
Damn, I'll pay to see that fight even if I have to work
of shifts at McDonalds to afford it.
Dennis Miller scales the Rushmore of wrong-headedness
by my good friend Barry Crimmins
No longer the youthful and sassy anchor of SNLís "Weekend Update" of all those years ago,
Miller has become a national father figure. And what a lousy dad he is. Listening to his act is
no longer something we look forward to; it is more like getting stuck in the back seat of your
popís station wagon while he lectures you on "Americanism" through 30 miles of heavy traffic.

successful president when it comes to foreign policy?'
I will be, but until I'm the president, it's going to be hard for me to verify that I think I'll be more effective."

Helpless Britons appeal to France for "regime change"
Dear President Chirac, On behalf of the people of the United Kingdom, we appeal to you
to help our suffering and once proud nation rid itself of a leader who defies the wishes of his
people and is trying to drag our country into a bloody and senseless war of conquest against
a distant nation that has done nothing to us. We have evidence that this leader has made a
strategic alliance with the leader of a fanatical foreign cult that is bent on world domination.
"This administration has saturated the media
and the American public with the implication
that almost everything evil in the world centers on Saddam Hussein. Some of our citizens
understandably have accepted those words from the administration. We have in this country
a system of checks and balances. Iíve always thought it one of the glories of American
democracy. But if the Congress and the judiciary are not strong enough to check the
executive branch, weíre in very real trouble.Ē
--George McGovern, (D-War hero) peace rally, Missoula, Feb. 16, 2003 (missoulanews.com)
Bush has an interesting political strategy for why his domestic agenda may fail.
Bush blames the GOP-controlled Congress for underfunding programs to guard against terrorism.
saying the Hill "did not respond to the $3.5 billion we asked for -- they not only reduced the budget
that we asked for, they earmarked a lot of the money" for other unrelated programs.
"That was an incredibly stupid thing for the White
to do," a senior House GOP aide admitted.
Democrats agree but they don't plan to ignore the gift from the President and will use Bush's remarks
for political ads in 2004..
Talking Points talk back

And according to Goebbels, the mentor of the FOX News philosophy,
"[d]uring a war, news should be given out for instruction rather than information."
This is the philosophy that seems to work for Americans completely devoid of the
ability to think for themselves, and FOX has been hugely successful in cornering
the market of that particular demographic.

I found a clear photo from that, and I thought you might like
to see it.
I publish this not to give you a sexual thrill, but to demonstrate that the networks
are pushing that envelope to this degree.
I thougth it was unnecessary. If they want to show their actors
nude, why not have
Ross go undercover at a brothel? That would be a lot more honest that this phony
story of "How do we deal with the kid seeing Daddy's shack up Honey naked?"

"Even while chairing commission meetings on the "dire threat" posed by the Korean program,
Rumsfeld was junketing to Zurich for board meetings of the Swiss-based energy technology
giant, ABB, where he was a top director. And what was ABB doing at the time?
Why, negotiating that $200 million deal
with North Korea to provide equipment
and services for the KEDO nuclear reactors, of course!"

The Long Bomb
...what you are about to see is the greatest shake of the dice any president has voluntarily engaged in
since Harry Truman dropped the bomb on Japan. Vietnam was a huge risk, but it evolved incrementally.
And threatening a nuclear war with the Soviets over the Cuban missile crisis was a huge shake of the dice
by President John Kennedy, but it was a gamble that was imposed on him, not one he initiated.
A U.S. invasion to disarm Iraq, oust Saddam
Hussein and rebuild a decent Iraqi state would be the mother
of all presidential gambles. Anyone who thinks President Bush is doing this for political reasons is nuts.
You could do this only if you really believed in it, because Mr. Bush is betting his whole presidency...

They don't ask "Have you smoked in the last year?"
The only things I can think of that people smoke are tobacco,
pot, cocaine, heroin and peyote.
Of everything on that list, only smoking tobacco will raise your rates.

Hall of Shame
Evil GOP Bastard of the Month - Colin Powell
Secretary of State After his false assertions at the UN (i.e., that nation-alist, secular Iraq and
Islamist Al Qaeda were terror co-conspirators, and pitifully weak evidence of an Iraqi threat),
we must regretfully conclude that Powell will knowingly -- even artfully -- lie to further his boss'
military adventure in Iraq. Despite Powell's image of honor and rectitude, there is evidence
that he has a history of executing unethical / illegal orders.

"Bush's economic philosophy is based on what
proponents call supply side theory.
Bush's father famously dismissed it as voodoo economics. Now, as anyone who has
studied economics knows, supply side tax cuts are fad economics conceived by
charlatans and cranks. You'd know that, that is, if you studied economics under the
new chairman of Bush's council of economic advisers. That's right. Bush's new top
economist, Dr. Gregory Mankiw of Harvard wrote in his authoritative text book,
"Principles of Economics," that Ronald Reagan's supply side tax cuts caused the
massive deficits of the '80s and concluded, quote, "when politicians rely on the advice
of charlatans and cranks they rarely get the desire of the results they anticipate."
Congratulation, Dr. Mankiw, good luck trying to educate the currant crop of
economic charlatans and cranks over at the Bush White House."
