"To my way of thinking, Coulter is the perfect
candidate to speak for the right. She's viperous, unprincipled,
holier-than-thou, paranoid, whiny and blessed with a perpetual smirk. She believes rich people who rip off
the system are just good businesspeople, that poor people forced to accept public assistance are parasites
better off eliminated. Barring the reincarnation of McCarthy or Cohn, she's the perfect candidate for Moral
Conscience of the Right. She gets my vote "

Defense officials said on Friday the Pentagon was insulted by media claims the rescue of Jessica Lynch
in Iraq was hyped to boost support for the war as questions swirled over the private's rescue.
The U.S. Army has launched an investigation
into the capture of Lynch and others on March 23 in Iraq
and an Army spokesman said the military's Criminal Investigation Unit was also looking at the treatment
of Lynch and other U.S. prisoners of war in Iraq to establish if any war crimes were committed.
Lynch's rescue on April 1 from...
The investigation has concluded and the Pentagon was completely
cleared of all charges?
Who was in charge of the investigation? ....Katherine who? Oh, ...Katherine Harris (R-FL)?
We need to stop being overly suspicious and support our president-on-loan from God.
"Wasn't this the country that Tony Blair and
George Bush pledged, in the same breath that announced war,
that the people of Afghanistan would not be forgotten? Well, I can say after two visits to Afghanistan that
they are not only forgotten but well and truly betrayed. The country is on its knees: roads, bridges, tunnels,
schools, homes, hospitals, and farmlands are reduced to rubble and dust. It is one of the most heavily
land-mined countries in the world. Only 5% of the rural population have access to clean water, 17% have
access to medical services, 13% have access to education, 25% of all children are dead by the age of five.
The people are dying! And we are turning a blind eye."
--David Hayman Afghanistan has been well and truly betrayed

War Helped Boost Al Qaeda
Allowed Network to Recruit: Experts
The U.S.-led war on Iraq gave Al Qaeda the opportunity to reinvigorate its weakened terrorist network with
new recruits and more funding, say experts on terrorism. The Iraq war 'clearly increased the terrorist impulse,'
said Jonathan Stevenson, senior fellow for counter-terrorism at London's International Institute for Strategic Studies...
'The political masters in the U.S. and Europe underestimated the extent to which bin Laden would use the war
in Iraq as a propaganda weapon to rejuvenate the movement and attract more funds,' said Paul Wilkinson,
head of the Center for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence... in Scotland. 'As far as the war against
Al Qaeda goes, it possibly has been counterproductive. We face turbulent times ahead'... 'So while the Al Qaeda
leadership has been weakened, the network as a whole has become more elusive than before,' [Stevenson] said,
adding that responsibility for planning and carrying out attacks rests more than ever with local groups.
If you look at this witrh a small IQ, it's clearer than that.
By staging a fake war against a country who wasn't planning to attack us, it stands to reason that those
who ARE planning to attack had extra time while we were distracted to become better prepared.
Did you know Poppy Bush currently works for Saudi Arabia?
He's on retainer with them to lobby for
stuff they want/need, and what they don't want/need is our military coming in a routing out Al Qaeda.
So killing two birds with one stone, the Corrupt Commander stages
a fake war so FOX and CNN
will say how great he is, while Poppy collects a fat check for shielding the Saudis from attack.
You should be hearing this on NBC, CBS and ABC, but they want
their tax cut more
than they want to see America punish the bastards who took down the WTC towers..

Watching Dave Friday night, he said it was "Fleet

Being an Oklahoma rube, I can only guess what "Fleet Week," might mean.
A third of the way into the show, Dave asked Paul if he knew Anchors
Paul said, "Yeah, I know that song..."
Paul knows all the songs.
I'll bet if I snuck up on Paul and said, "Do Garbage - Version 2.0," he'd
start counting, "1, ...2, ...3, ...4...," and his band would burst into "Temptation Waits!"
So Paul and the gang burst

Welcome back, Neil
"The reaction to France that the administration allowed to happen is so immature. These people
have their own opinion - they're French! They're not fuckin' Americans, they're French!
Vive la difference, hello? And this big deal about Bush landing on an aircraft carrier?
Talk about a six-year-old kid with a Tonka toy - we got it here. Bush has polarised the country
and is creating this breeding ground for an opposition. In the next couple of months, they'll probably
make it unpatriotic to be Democrat. It's pretty crazy. If I keep speaking my mind, will I be deported?"
Hey Neil, we're glad to have you back, but we were damn disappointed
you left in the first place.
If you're sincere about dropping your hero worship of the Unelected Idiot, I can be a fan again.
Hummers Here, Hummers There
In private, Bush aides have been fuming: The U.S. gave the Saudis intelligence warnings before the
recent attacks, but they took no steps to deter them. Publicly, though, the Bush team bites its tongue.
We never talk straight to Saudi Arabia, because we are addicted to its oil. Addicts never tell the truth to their pushers.
The 'President's' father is on the Saudi payroll as an advisor and a lobbyist.
All American decisions concerning Saudi Arabia will be made with the interests of the B.F.E.E. first.
...but don't think about that - let's talk about American Idol and Monica Lewinsky - again.

In 1995, Hatch was told by his senior staff that the FBI and other government agencies
had missed warning signs about the 1993 WTC bombing and were ill-prepared to prevent
future domestic terrorist attacks. Hatch, whose committee oversees federal law enforcement,
approved holding investigative hearings about the information, but they never took place
"We have information that some instances, like
the WTC, could have been prevented if the
relevant agencies had worked in concert with each other," the investigators wrote.
"Simply stated, several different agencies had a small piece of the puzzle.
"If they had shared with each other, there is
at least a strong possibility that they would
have identified the World Trade Center as a target before the bombing."
But nooooooooooooooooooooo. Hatch, like every
Republican in congress, had his head
inside Clinton zipper, looking for "something very, very important," like potential obstruction
of justice charges for Travelgate, Filegate and every other crime" that never occured.
Instead of doing their jobs, all the Republican party did once they seized control was to
attack our last elected president while Al Qaeda was busy working with flight simulator.
They wanted Clinton stopped more than they wanted America to be safe.

Ayatollahs! Hawks Preparing for the Next Regime Change
by Maureen Dowd, one of the reporters at the paper that hires liars and fruads
The C.I.A. is snooping around itself and other spy agencies to see if prewar reports of
Iraqi weapons of mass destruction and ties to Al Qaeda were exaggerated.
The suspense is killing me.
The delicious part is that the review was
suggested by Donald Rumsfeld, a main culprit in
twisting the intelligence to justify a strike on Baghdad. It's like O. J. vowing to find the real killer.
As Rep Jane Harman, the ranking Democrat
on the House intelligence committee, put it:
"This could conceivably be the greatest intelligence hoax of all time."
Her innocence is touching.
I sure hate to agree with hates-everyone Mo Do, but isn't
that just like a Democrat?
"It's starting to seem like maybe the president might have been lying?"
What's f-ing wrong with our side?
The Democrats buy every lie the Unelected Fraud and his
Gang of Thugs put out there.
They've even forgotten that he stole the election and was appointed by a crooked court.
The GOP never accepted Clinton - not for a second, yet the Dems
have been bending over backwards
to give this little shit everything he wants, while Karl Rove is beating their brains in with big hammers.
"Every Memorial Day I think about what these
men did and what we owe them. They didn't go through hell
so Kenny Boy Lay could betray his investors and workers at Enron, or for a political system built on legal
bribery. It wasn't for corporate tax havens in Bermuda, or an economic system driven by the law of the jungle,
or so a handful of media buccaneers could turn the public airwaves into private sewers. Sure, to paraphase
Donald Rumsfeld, freedom makes it possible for people to be crooks, but so does communism, and fascism,
and monarchy. Democracy is about doing better. It's about fairness, justice, human rights, and yes, it's about
equality, too; look it up. I was never called on to do what soldiers do; I'll never know if I might have had their
courage. But a journalist can help keep the record straight, on their behalf. They thought democracy was worth
fighting for, even dying for. The least we can do is to help make democracy worthy of them "

"Jan O. Karlsson, the Swedish Minister for
Migration, has got himself into trouble after
calling the American President 'that fucking Texas geezer'. The rather impolite description
of George W. Bush was presented by the Swedish minister during a meeting with the press

criticising US politics on AIDS and abortions and criticising the fact that that the US has

Santorum: big donor to gay rights group?
Senator Rick Santorum, (R-Bigot), has become a "major donor" to New York's
biggest gay rights organization, thanks to a gay comedian's off-Broadway show.
Seth Rudetsky, who stars in the one-man
show, "Rhapsody in Seth," started the
Sen. Rick Santorum Education Fund earlier this month by donating 5 percent of
all ticket sales to the Empire State Pride Agenda (ESPA) in the senator's name.
The United States is illegally holding thousands of Iraqi prisoners of war and other captives without
access to human rights officials at compounds close to Baghdad airport, The Observer has learned.
There have also been reports of a mutiny
last week by prisoners at an airport compound, in protest
against conditions. The uprising was 'dealt with' by the Americans, according to a US military source.
The Red Cross so far has been denied access
to what the organisation believes could be as many
as 3,000 prisoners held in searing heat. All other requests to inspect conditions under which
prisoners are being held have been met with silence or been turned down.
Once again, the American media will cover for Bush to protect
him from world opinion. If Clinton had

Victims: Americans are worse than Saddam
Before the end of the war Mrs Sabrir lived with her husband on a farm in the town of Khanaqin,
close to the Iranian border. They had survived unscathed through the Iran-Iraq war, the Gulf War
in 1991 and the invasion of Iraq. As opponents of Saddam they even welcomed the American invasion.
But it is the peace, and the disintegration
of Saddam’s grip, that has destroyed their lives. On April 11,
two days after the fall of Saddam, Kurdish fighters entered Khanaqin, ordering all 15,000 Arabs to leave.
“There were so many Kurdish fighters we couldn’t
count them. They came into our house, and fired into
the air, and grabbed me by the shoulder and said we had to leave in 48 hours or they would kill us.”
After seven days of travelling by foot and
by donkey from Khanaqin, 1,500 of the tribe ended up
in the abandoned prison, 30 miles north of Baghdad. They had nowhere else to go.

Bush answers on 9/11 overdue
President Bush is not going to assume responsibility for the World Trade Center catastrophe.
His political allies blame Clinton (as they are blaming him three years later for the current recession).
Moreover, Bush continues to stonewall attempts to set up an independent investigation of what went
wrong, and continues to sit on the 900-page report prepared by a bipartisan congressional committee.
The people Bush proposed to smoke out and
''get'' are still free. Moreover, some of the CIA officials
who ''dropped the ball'' in the summer of 2001 have been promoted. Yet the media who were so eager to pry
into the private life of President Clinton seem disinclined to uncover the real story of what happened
during that summer and whether the same people who dropped the ball then are still dropping it..
Bush can't let that report come out because it might prove what
he knew. If they told him something big
was coming, and in typical Dim Son fashion he went on another 30 day vacation, the voters might not
want to be reminded that their 'president' never worked a day in his life and didn't want to start then.

Subject: The end of democracy in the U.S.
I recently sent this letter to the editor of my local paper.
I thought you might like to use some of the facts included in it.
Every American, both Republican and Democrat,
should be very concerned with our current Administration.
As a democracy our government should exhibit principles of equality and respect for the individual within a community.
Under George W. Bush we no longer have that kind of government.
For example, there is a proposal being considered
by the FCC that will relax the rules of media ownership.
The FCC has done little to open this debate to the public but, for the 10,000 people that have contacted this
federal government agency to voice their opinion only 11 were in favor of deregulation.(1) Several U.S. Senators
requested that the FCC hold off the vote to allow time for more public input. Michael Powell, head of the FCC refused.
The vote on deregulation will take place on June 2cd as scheduled.
Consider the debate over allowing snowmobiles
in Yellowstone National Park; 360,000 people wrote to the Interior
Department, with 80% of responding citizens advocating that the noisy machines be banned. Not only did the Bush
administration okay their continued use, they increased the number of snowmobiles allowed. (2)
And of course on February 15th of this year over
30 million people worldwide marched against war with Iraq. (3)
But President Bush went ahead with the invasion because of the dangerous weapons of mass destruction that Iraq possessed.
Of course the U.S. military has been unable to find these so-called weapons but that’s a whole different letter.
