"I feel bad about each and every man

but you have to look at the good
we've accomplished, too. The young Iraqi
children that are now going to
school, for example."

wounded U.S. troops held in squalor-
FORT STEWART, Ga. - Hundreds of sick and
wounded U.S. soldiers including many who served in the
Iraq war are languishing in hot cement
barracks here while they wait -- sometimes for months -- to see doctors.
The National Guard and Army Reserve soldiers'
living conditions are so substandard, and the medical care
so poor, that many of them believe the
Army is trying push them out with reduced benefits for their ailments.
One document shown to UPI states that no
more doctor appointments are available from Oct. 14 through
Nov. 11 -- which is Veterans Day.
Just another outrage from Bush that the media will blame on Clinton.
These soldiers deserve the best medical treatment in America,
but Bush just doesn't care.
All he can think about is stealing oil, raising money and cutting
taxes for the super-rich.

The entire nation owes radio broadcaster
Rush a debt of gratitude, Libertarians say, because his
ordeal has exposed every drug warrior in
America as a rank hypocrite.
"One thing we don't hear from American politicians
very often is silence," said Joe Seehusen,
Libertarian Party executive director. "By
refusing to criticize Rush, every drug warrior has just
been exposed as a shameless, despicable
hypocrite. And that's good news, because the next
time they do speak up, there'll be no reason
for anyone to listen."

U.S. officials privately said demonstrators
on or near the motorcade route posed the biggest problem.
Scott McClellan (R-ForkedTongue) said crowds
had to be moved back to address safety concerns.
Bush's motorcade raced to the speech at
high speed without incident, passing thousands of well-wishers.
People, at times, stood within ten feet
of Bush's fast-moving armored limousine.
Most appeared friendly. But security forces
kept the about 4,000 university students and activists who had
marched to the Congress building, carrying
streamers saying "Ban Bush" and "Bush No. 1 terrorist," out of
view behind tall army trucks.
(Just like in America. Does Bush even know he's hated by the whole world?)
The president gave no sign he noticed them
or the demonstrators, mentioning only those
"who lined the streets today for their
warm and gracious welcome."
Did they distract Bush, perhaps with a small hand puppet or a

"The administration strongly opposes efforts
to convert any portion of this assistance
to a loan mechanism. Doing so would
slow efforts to stabilize the region and to relieve
pressure on our troops, raise questions
about our commitment to building a democratic
and self-governing Iraq, and impair
our ability to encourage other nations to provide
badly needed assistance without saddling
Iraq with additional unsustainable debt."

Ancestor's Bank Seized by Gov't
President Bush's grandfather was a director
of a bank seized by the federal government because of its ties
to a German industrialist who helped bankroll
Adolf Hitler's rise to power, government documents show.
Translation: Prescott Bush handled some of Hirtler's financing.
Both Harrimans and Bush were partners in
the New York investment firm of Brown Brothers, Harriman
and Co., which handled the financial transactions
of the bank as well as other financial dealings with
several other companies linked to Bank
voor Handel that were confiscated by the U.S. government
during World War II.
Union Banking was seized by the government
in October 1942 under the Trading with the Enemy Act.
No charges were brought against Union Banking's
American directors. The federal government was
too busy trying to fight the war, said
Donald Goldstein, a professor of public and international affairs
at the University of Pittsburgh.
Translation: The B.F.E.E. founder paid bribes to
make their charges go away.

"We will pay any price and bear any burden
to advance the cause of human liberty.
And after the shock and awe of major
combat, the price and burden of human hope
shifted from the battlefield to the

"It is a better and more important story
than losing a couple of soldiers every day."
Rep. George Nethercutt said yesterday that
Iraq's reconstruction is going better than is
portrayed by the news media, citing his
recent four-day trip to the country.
"The story of what we've done in the postwar period
is remarkable," Nethercutt, R-Wash. said.
"It is a better and more important story than
losing a couple of soldiers every day."
He added that he did not want any more soldiers
to be killed.
Well sure, but Nethercutt doesn't weant those deaths reported.
That might make Bush looks like an inept, blood-thirsty murderer.
This guy ran against Tom Foley as an "outsider" who'd only serve
a term or two.
He was elected in 1994, and he's going to stay,
"until the people's work is finished,"

young person he's "dating."

Diebold Patch Election?
Diebold Election Systems has had a tumultuous
year, and it doesn't look like it's getting any better.
Last January the electronic voting machine
maker faced public embarrassment when voting activists
revealed the company's insecure FTP server
was making its software source code available for everyone to see.
Then researchers and auditors who examined
code for the company's touch-screen voting system
released two separate reports stating that
the software was full of serious security flaws.
Now a former worker in Diebold's Georgia
warehouse says the company installed patches on its
machines before the state's 2002 gubernatorial
election that were never certified by independent
testing authorities or cleared with Georgia
If the charges are true, Diebold could be
in violation of federal and state election-certification rules.

Stephanopoulos was an operative and

bad taste in his mouth. He actually
said in 1998 that Bill Clinton never should have been elected
president, because he wasn't up to it
in his person, in his character. That's kind of a stunning thing."

This was among the most polite of the e-mails I received about

Nothing makes a sane person's cheese fall off their
cracker faster than Israel.
Perkel can speak for himself without any help but me, but since
the hate was pointed my way,
I'd like to point out a few things - if you hate-mongers can
plug your piehole for just 30 seconds:
First, Marc asked a question.
If the nation of Israel can't survive the asking of questions,
let's find out sooner rather than later.
Second, his scorn was extra-clearly aimed at the current, right-wing

Hey Bart. Love the new look.
Dr. Laura was yanked in Las Cruces, NM shortly after the mass exodus
of advertisers from her show. They replaced
her with G. Gordon Liddy (R-Shoot for the head) for awhile,

Channel (BFEE) pressures stations to keep Limbaugh
Amid national chatter about Rush Limbaugh's
addiction to prescription drugs, (not true) WBAL
radio found itself at the center of an
industry storm this week after it pulled his show from its usual
time slot and then flip-flopped on that
decision. Some listeners applauded the move, and many balked.
WBAL's initial decision to pull the program
and use local hosts - the first such move among 600 radio
affiliates nationwide - raised alarms in
an industry worried about financial fallout, a decline in ratings and
the show's survival.
So, instead of relying on the "market forces" Rush champions,
they're using threats and scare tactics
to force stations around America to keep an unpopular drug addict's
Nazi hate show on the airwaves.
Oh, when will they Stop the Hypocrisy?
Your crazy love for that s.o.b. clinton

Subject: Malaysia's History
In Malaysia, in India and Pakistan, all
through Asia, in fact, the British Empire encouraged ethnic hatred,
including teaching it in schools ala those
fundie schools in Saudi Arabia. That's a British legacy the
US has to deal with now. In Malaysia, the
Chinese were pitted against the native Malaysians. It became a
cliche that the Chinese had all the good
jobs, all the wealth, that "they" controlled everything. Sort of
like the way Central Europeans saw Jewish
land speculators, banking families and degree-holders, but
not the impoverished push-cart peddlars
and ghetto-dwellers. Also similar to the way the women's
movement could see mostly-male CEOs and
office-holders, but not mostly-male homeless people or
crippled PTSDed veterans or work-related
death and injury victims.
At any rate, I suspect you get to be PM
of Malaysia by not being too sympathetic to Chinese-Malaysians, and I
can imagine that attitude of "they control
everything" translates easily to anti-Semitism when you look at the world.
Marc should study up on this, I'd bet anything
the Malaysian PM is an ignoramus about the MidEast on a par with Bush.
In various times and places the Chinese
have had that "they run everything" reputation in many places,
as have the Ibos in Africa, and the Germans
in Africa and South America.

conservative's review of Al Franken's book
The other day on talk radio, I heard a

Rush Limbaugh was a drug addict involved
in a drug ring even if Limbaugh himself admitted it.
If you're that guy, don't bother reading
Franken's book. You will really just drive yourself even more crazy.
The leaders we conservatives have trusted
have taken advantage of our trust to line the pockets of
the wealthy and powerful, and it's time
we rose up and drove out these greedy liars. They've hijacked
and distorted our belief system for their
own gain, and in doing so are destroying our credibility.
I'm still a decent, honest, hard-working,
