"One of the most troubling developments in
the United States today is that its media model — once the
beacon of the world — is essentially broken. The relationship between the rulers and reporters has become
all too cozy. In addition, many reporters, especially in Washington, D.C., are too focused on reporting
“just the facts” — as they are presented by the government...

Huddled over a fleet of abandoned Iraqi drones, U.S. weapons experts in Baghdad came to one conclusion:
Despite Bush's public assertions, these unmanned drones weren't designed to dispense biological or chemical weapons.
The evidence gathered this summer matched
the dissenting views of Air Force intelligence analysts who argued
in their assessment of Iraq before the war that the remotely piloted planes were unarmed reconnaissance drones.
In building its case for war, senior Bush
administration officials had said Iraq's drones were intended
to deliver unconventional weapons.
The unproven U.S. assertion regarding Iraq's
UAV programs is one among many. American weapons hunters,
like their U.N. counterparts, haven't reported finding any chemical, biological weapons or nuclear weapons in Iraq so far.
The lack of success in uncovering unconventional
weapons, after warnings that Iraq posed an immediate danger,
has led critics and some former government analysts to suggest the administration exaggerated the threat posed by Saddam.
...thereby intentionally dragging America into an unnecessary war that's become very bloody for us.
"Gore and Davis and bland and blander. Both
were veterans of Vietnam, which would make
a Gore-Davis presidential ticket the only compelling argument yet in favor of friendly fire."

This is bad news for every pedophile priest and each of his victims.
The Church will be more hesitant to "finger" these priests now,
because exposing them will be seen as the same as killing them.
They say there's a hierarchy in prison, and child rapists are
near the bottom.
Odds are that priest is in a better place now than 48 hours ago.
(I don't mean that - he's dead. He's not anywhere now.)
Also, and this is something I've been meaning to say for years, but I only
remember it when someone beloved dies, like Bob Hope, and it'd be too tacky.
The night after Bob Hope died, Larry King had a Hope daughter
on, and some
close friends, and I heard the stupidest question you can ask the bereaved family.
"Now that he's in Heaven, which old friends
is Bob Hope having the most fun seeing again?"
Gee, are we all six years old?
Do we really think there's actually a place called Heaven?
No wonder those TV preachers make so damn much money.
Why in the wide, wide world of sports would somebody think there's a Heaven?
I can see saying that when small children are around, because asking them to face
the facts of life at a tender age might be too much, but did we all forget to grow up?
Seems to me, if people really thought there was a God and a Heaven
and a Hell,
they would behave like their parents and grandparents were watching.
There would be no drugs, no Vegas, no adultery, no alcohol, no tax cheating, etc.
How often do you meet someone like that? Once a year?
You should plan to come to my funeral.
I've left instructions that no lies be told - none at all.

"Rusty Thomas, a minister from Waco, Tex.,

They'll pay the price." We all know what happens when a religious nut from Waco threatens you. And in
Florida, "pro-life" forces prepare to kill again. The judge who sentenced Paul Hill to death in 1994 for the
murder of an abortion doctor in Pensacola has received a death-threat letter containing a rifle bullet --
making him the fourth official in Florida to be targeted in a campaign to halt Hill's Sept. 3 execution.

"Hmmm. looks like Hambali's getting some company..."
In a survey by the LA Times, 35 percent backed Bustamante (D-Experience),
and 22 percent supported Musclehead, (R-Faded star) a suspected gay porn actor.
Data also showed 50 percent support the

which reversed a former 70/30 trend to recall Gray Davis.
The new numbers for Bustamante differ from others released lately.

Gray Davis Lacked Legal Ability to Solve Energy Crisis
When power shortages began in the summer of 2000 and wholesale power prices tripled, Davis immediately
accused generators of gouging electricity customers. State regulators cited indications of price manipulation
and deliberate withholding of power supplies by generators. In response, the governor demanded that FERC
impose price ceilings on generators' prices.
His pleas went unanswered for more than
a year. A solid majority of Federal Energy Regulatory Commissioners
were ideologically committed to California's electricity deregulation program, the first in the nation. Imposing price
controls would brand the California plan a failure.
This is a two-year old story, but Bush's good puppy press continues
to help him bury it.
When davis asked the White House to call off Kenny Boy, Bush said "market forces"
were at work and must be allowed to find their level. But everybody knew Enron
was creating false invoices for power they allegedly traded in and out of the state.
As always, with the help of the networks and the print media and
talk radio, Bush skates
away with the money and whoever is left standing there gets top catch the blame.
Greg Palast can explain it a lot better than I can:
We are told that there is just not enough
electricity and gas. Even the Democrats and the
New York Times agree that there is an energy crisis in California, which is evidence enough
to conclude: There is no energy crisis in California.
Power shortage? Nope. The California power
grid operator reported that, just over the
California border at the 'Henry Hub' gas pipeline switching centre, you could buy plentiful
gas for $1 (£66p) a therm. A couple of miles down the road in California, the price was $10.
By golly, it turns out the two power merchants that controlled the biggest pipe into California
simply blocked part of the tube. Result: panic, price spikes and black outs. Attribution

Part 5 of Joe Conason's "Big Lies"
Damn the luck...
Bill Bennett (R-Whore) was on Tim the Whore's MSGOP show Saturday
He was whining about how unfair it was to kick a good guy when he's down.
He was whining about how unfair it was to point fingers, since we all slip, sometimes.
He was whining about how unfair it was to have the media go after you for slipping.
Swear to Koresh, my eyes were lying to me, because I could not have witnessed this horseshit.
Here's the deal on Bennett:
If you have millions, there's nothing wrong with gambling millions, if your family is secure.
If Bennett wants to gamble big-time slots, this is America, or at least this is Nevada.
If Michael Jordan wants to bet Charles Barkley $10,000 a hole at golf, who can object?
If I but AOL at $60, I understand life is a gamble...
But Bennett ...made his millions ...beating up the seven deadly sins.
He enjoys food and drink too
much, he just can't say no.
He apparently is unable to say no to gambling, because getting caught cost him his lil' high horse.
He's addicted to tobacco money, big oil money and NRA money. He's a whore who can't stop.
He admits he's addicted to drugs ( nicotine) and he's the Morals Czar we should all emulate?
It looks like "immediate gradification" is Billy's middle name,
and he's going to lecture us
about what an evil, immoral and negative impact Bill Clinton had on this country?

There's a rumor that if Bush gets in trouble he'll be subject to chimpeachment.

After defying a federal court order and drawing hundreds of cheering Christian activists to this capitol city,
Alabama's crusading chief justice conceded today and said that he will not try to block the removal of his

Why we dropped the bomb on Japan
Welcome to Brainwashington D.C.
[As of ] today the criminal case of the 9-11 attacks has remained entirely unsolved. Investigations by police
and authorities utterly failed, none of the real backers and preparators of these attacks were found, also no hard
evidence and no terrorist was captured. In fact, after 18 months we do not know more than we knew 48 hours
after the attacks, when that list of the 19 Hijackers had been published. So the results of the greatest police-operation
in history amount to virtually nothing.
I think there are two reasons for this zero-investigation:
First: the secrecy of the US-administration,
which has stonewalled all evidence of 9-11 flight-recorders,
air-traffic-communication etc. - and buried it in the grave of "national security".
Second: the nearly total breakdown
of the media's constitutional function in democratic societies
as an instrument of power-control and critical investigation.
Subject: gas prices
What are gas prices like in Oklahoma?
In New York, they will be past $2.00 a gallon soon.
One station raised prices 27 cents a gallon,
including 13 cents in one day!
The B.F.E.E. loves oil, so they don't care.
I think California has gas in the $2.30 range - they voted Democrat.
Oklahoma was solidly behind Bush, so gas is $1.50 here
Welcome back, Dave.
For years, the GOP has had a phoney issue about the United Nations.
Blowhard gasbags like vulgar Pigboy Rush
have said 1,000 times that
"Clinton wants to turn our military over to the clowns over at the UN."
It was a phoney issue because in the last 50 years, there's never been
a situation that the American military couldn't handle - until right now.
Now the Unelected Bungler is on his knees, begging and bribing
to please send some of their young men to come die with us,
but knowing that a lying idiot, theif and fool is in charge, they are hesitant.
The only way they'll consider sending troops is if they
can share the
decision-making, because Rummy & Cheney have done such a bad job.
...but that means, to some degree, we're turning over our military
to the UN
which is the phoney non-issue that never was - until Bush made his oil grab.
Bottom line - the GOP will do what they always do - they'll sacrifice
core beliefs to bail out one of their own because, to use a poker term,
they've gone "All in" on the Pinhead who's been a dismal failure at best.
Suddenly, they don't mind turning over our military to the UN.
Suddenly, that's fine and dandy with these jagoffs.
They know if a Democrat wins, they will have to stop raping the
and the super rich will have to give up their oh-so-precious tax cut,
so they'll sacrifice the health of their kids before they'll give up that extra money.

Monkeys make poor war heroes
President Bush's lack of leadership in losing
the war on terrorism has been remarkable.
After September 11, President Bush acted like a coward and hid in a bunker. America is
much less safe as a result. He continues to wage global war on every country that can't
fight back, with focus and determination. Thanks to him, America is losing the war on terror.
Our military proceeded with reckless abandon
to murder the innocent civilians of Afghanistan
and Iraq, and ensure that terrorists all over the world have even more reason than ever to use
weapons of mass destruction against America and Israel.
President Bush fails to understand that
we must give our military all the support it needs.
He has not sent nearly enough troops into Iraq to win the peace. That is why the capture of
Baghdad was followed by all of the anarchy and looting. Clearly, he had no plan for maintaining
the peace after capturing Iraq. I assume that is because he cares not about the Iraqis. All he
wants is to steal their oil and leave.
He continues to cut the pay and benefits
of our military men both here, and overseas.
His "help is on the way" lie was just empty rhetoric, which seems to be an ongoing pattern
with this administration. This President is not providing the leadership America needs.

Carlos Santana interview on CNN
It was wild
Carlos said the band flipped out when they saw the crowd at Woodstock.
They had to fly in because the roads were impassable, and seeing 350K people
was a little disturbing to someone doing mass quantities of psychadelic drugs.
He and his band were unknown outside of
San Fransisco at the time, and this was
their chance to make a big impression on the world, and Carlos was tripping on
mescaline, plus another drug I'm surpisingly not familiar with and LSD.
Carlos said he couldn't control the neck of his guitar because it was moving around like a snake.
He said he was making all those goofy faces
because he was chasing his fretboard
all the time he was onstage. (Of course, you kids shouldn't try this at home.)
So he did what all scared people do - he prayed.
He promised God that he'd never do drugs
again if God would help him get thru this gig.
"Of course, I lied," he chuckled 34 years later. "I did lots of drugs after that."
What if you were a super-rich, snooty Democrat,
and you were at a party on a Wednesday, and a very good friend said,
"If you still own stock in my company, you'd better sell it all tomorrow
because Friday it's going to crash harder than Jenna Bush at a Cuervo party."
Are you telling me you'd hold that stock and take the bath?
"There are reports that Argentina and the Congo
are sending their fiscal policy experts

California back to Mexico.

Muskegon city officials dropped Nugent from their festival lineup after controversy erupted over
Nugent's alleged use of "geeks" and "niggers" for Asians and African Americans on Denver's
KRFX-FM Lewis & Floorwax morning show on May 5.
Nugent was speaking with DJs Rick Lewis
and Michael Floorwax when he attempted to make
the point that the words "geeks" and "niggers" were just that, words, and therefore shouldn't offend,
citing Richard Pryor's comedic use of the N-word as an example.
Remember during the OJ trial, Rush kept re-hashing F Lee Bailey's
questions to Mark Furhman,
"Have you used the word nigger in the last ten years?"
Rush never had so much fun in his life, unless you count the hundreds
of times he ridiculed Jocelyn
Elders for getting Eric Clapton's name wrong. Trust me, these racist bastards, when they can think
of an excuse to say "nigger" or ridicule a "nigger" with a vagina, that's like hitting three home runs in
one game for them - that's why they got in talk radio in the first place - to connect with other racists.
Republicans dismiss women, and they hate blacks because God told
him to, so when they get a chance
to mock a black woman, it's Christmas, New Years and 4th of July all in one. It's great being GOP.
They're so tired of not being allowed to call the nigger what
he is, when they finally get a chance to
say the word on the air, they wet themselves like Backdoor Bettina Gregory, breathlessly reporting
on another fabricated allegation made by Matt Drudge against our last elected president.
Why are you afraid of Joe Conason?
Is it because he's smarter than you?
Or maybe because he would expose you as
the fool and the liar that you are?
I understand that your manly friend Ann Coulter hides from him also.
