"Some found it surprising that one of Arnold's most outspoken defenders against charges of groping
  and harassing women was Susan Estrich...One could ask how Estrich went from condemning Clarence
  Thomas' whispered vulgarities to defending Arnold's whispered vulgarities in a single decade...Estrich
  addresses the moral complexities involved in the kind of flip-flopping mainstream feminists do all the time."

 I can see someone defending Clarence "Slappy" Thomas.

 Charity says $4 billion 'missing' in Iraq

  Click  Here

 A British charity has accused the US of failing to account for $4bnmeant to help rebuild the country.
 The charity, Christian Aid, said the US has not publicly disclosed its accounts since Saddam was oustedl.

 The report's authors calculated that the CPA had received at least $5bn in oil revenues and assets seized from Saddam.
 However, only $1bnof this could be traced, while the rest had simply vanished into a "financial black hole", said the report.

 That money went right into the pockets of the B.F.E.E.
 Trust me - that $4bn  is just the tip of the biggest iceberg in the history of crime.

 US rejects allegations that Iraqi billions are missing
  As long as the B.F.E.E. does the books, backed by our military, who can stop them?

 Paul Bremer, head of the Coalition Provisional Authority, said all funds were being spent or transferred
 in a "completely transparent" way and that auditors' accounting of CPA expenditures from those funds
 would soon be posted on the internet and provided to an oversight board.

"The entire accounts of the Development Fund for Iraq will be posted on the internet and made available
 on a regular basis to the members of the international board," Bremer said.

 Mr. Bremer, who will certify how much oil Halliburton is secretly pumping from Iraq?
 You're employed by the people who are stealing the oil and the money.

 'Jesus' struck by lightning

"The actor who plays Jesus in Mel Gibson's film The Passion of Christ has escaped injury after
   being struck by lightning during filming. The incident, in which star Jim Caviezel did not sustain
  an injury, is the second bolt to hit the set of the movie in Italy. The crew was on a remote location
  a few hours from Rome when the storm occurred. "I'm about a hundred feet away from them,"
  producer Steve McEveety said, "when I glance over and see lightning coming out of Caviezel's ears."

 Maybe God doesn't like Mel Gibson movies any more than I do.

 Subject: The problem is rich people

 Hey, BC,

 We need an assets tax

 An old idea that would solve a lot of problems is a federal assets tax, say at a rate of 1% per annum.
 This would be like a property tax, only not just for real estate, but also for stocks, bonds, art, mineral rights, etc.

 Two of the major problems facing this country are our criminal overload class of parasitic rich people and
 the cradle-to-grave brainwashing that prevents us from learning a proper hatred of rich people and from
 demanding that rich people start paying their fair share.

 CBS Slurs My Dad
  by self-serving prick Michael Reagan

  Click  Here

"Ronald Reagan, about to be portrayed as an unfeeling, forgetful conservative, had the biggest heart
 of any President in history - so big that CBS had no trouble finding it when they decided to plunge a dagger into it...

 (yank me, Michael)

 On the day he took office, right after he was told that the hostages in Iran had been freed, he called President Carter
 and told him, "You're the one who did the work, you're the one that did so much to free those hostages. You are the
 one who should get the credit." And he gave the former president Air Force One and sent him to Germany to welcome
 the hostages. That was the heart of Ronald Reagan.

 Your father was a pawn in Bush's power grab in the big October Surprise of 1980.
 Your sainted Daddy illegally made a secret deal with hostage takers in Iran to screw those diplomats.
 If you were honest enough to say, "Bush played by dad for a fool," I could have some pity, but until
 you and the others admit the truth, we'll just go on thinking he was a scumbag who betrayed his country to
 steal power so Bush and his BFEE could run the world from 1981-1993.

 Why do you think Neil Bush was to have dinner with Hinckley's brother the day before he shot your dad?

 The Attempted Coup D'Etat of March 30, 1991

  Click  Here

 On Tuesday, March 31 the Houston Post published a copyrighted story under the headline:
 "BUSH'S SON WAS TO DINE WITH SUSPECT'S BROTHER, by Arthur Wiese and Margarte Downing.

 Scott Hinckley, the brother of John Hinckley Jr., who is charged with shooting Reagan and three others,
 was to have been a dinner guest Tuesday night at the home of Neil Bush, The Houston Post has learned.

 Neil admitted he knew Scott Hinckley. Neil said the Hinckley family gave big bucks to the Bush 1980 presidential campaign.
 Neil was asked if he knew John the shooter and said, "I have no idea."

 Gee, that's a lot different than saying, "No."  I wonder why Neil had to straddle that question like his name was Bob Dole?

 Was there an investigation of the Neil-Scott connection? What a stupid question that is.
 The Bushes are above all suspicion in every instance - even when the president has been shot.

 What does all this mean?
 I suggest you ask yourself, "Would evil men murder a president to control the world?"
 Then, ask yourself, "Why did Bush the Smarter have to pardon everyone in Iran-Contra?"

 US Ex-CIA officers seek Senate leak probe
  Looks like they don't trust that B.F.E.E. bastard Ashcroft, either

  Click  Here

 Two former CIA officers are asking the Senate Intelligence Committee to open its own investigation
 into who leaked the identity of an undercover officer.

 Jim Marcinkowski, a case officer from 1986 to 1989, said a congressional investigation will be needed
 to demonstrate the credibility of an investigation now under way by the Justice Department.

 "I have every confidence they (Justice officials) will come up with the right conclusion," he saidWednesday.
 "But obviously there are going to be people that are going to question that conclusion, so you might as well
  put it all on the table right now."

 The B.F.E.E. (Bush Family Evil Empire) can't afford for anything to be put on the table.
 Look for these two to commit "suicide" very soon.

 Setting It Right
  Three years too late, Gore takes on Bush - great speech!

  Click  Here

 It seems obvious that big and important issues like the Bush economic policy and the first Pre-emptive
 War in U.S. history should have been debated more thoroughly in the Congress, covered more extensively
 in the news media, and better presented to the American people before our nation made such fateful choices.
 But that didn't happen, and in both cases, reality is turning out to be very different from the impression that
 was given when the votes - and the die - were cast.

 Since this curious mismatch between myth and reality has suddenly become commonplace and is causing
 such extreme difficulty for the nation's ability to make good choices about our future, maybe it is time to
 focus on how in the world we could have gotten so many false impressions in such a short period of time.


 "Is our current situation such that 'the harder we work, the behinder we get'?" wondered Rumsfeld in the memo.

 Scalia Ridicules Court's Gay Sex Ruling

  Click  Here

 The ruling, Scalia said, "held to be a constitutional right what had been a criminal
 offense at the time of the founding and for nearly 200 years thereafter."

 If Tony "Three Fingers" Scalia was gay, he'd be screaming for equality and justice.
 Since he's not, he's got that GOP "fuck 'em" attitude.

 Scalia adopted a mocking tone to read from the court's June ruling that struck down state
 antisodomy laws in Texas and elsewhere.

 Hey Tony, guess what?
 We have no respect for the Whore Court, either.

 Scalia wrote a bitter dissent in the gay sex case that was longer than the ruling itself.

 Suck on it, Tony.

 On Thursday, Scalia said judges, including his colleagues on the Supreme Court,
 throw over the original meaning of the Constitution when it suits them.

 Yeah, like YOU did in December 2000, when you realized your boy lost the election.
 You decided there was no Tenth Amendment and you took the law into your own, unclean hands.

 "How can you say things like that" some will ask, seeing as to how I'm in nursing school.
 Simple: I think of the lives that have been destroyed over weed, and this  S.O.B's cheerleading of the Repubs' "War on Drugs"

 Look, people who suffer from addiction fall into three categories:
 Those who want to and get better,
 Those who want to and CAN'T get better,

"What's really frightening about this Rumsfeld memo is how clueless it is. Hello, Saddam had nothing to do
  with terrorism against the U.S. until you invaded his country. The "war on terrorists" was weakened, if not
  entirely abandoned, in Afghanistan, and homeland security has always been a sick and frightening joke for
  this administration. I thought at least they had a cynical strategy behind their actions. But I see they really
  are blinded by their radical ideology - so blind, in fact, that they think they can see what the CIA cannot -

 Everyone Has Value
    by my good friend Nick Dupree  at nickscrusade.com

  Click  Here

 The value of people with disabilities and whether or not the government should support them at all is a matter of contention,
 but how this support should be provided is also hotly debated.  Unfortunately, when the Medicaid law was written in 1965,
 the only option to get needed care when someone became disabled was to send them, often hours away, to a nursing home
 or institution, where they would be isolated.  In the 1980s, medical technology improved enough to allow people with disabilities
 to live in their own communities, and new Medicaid programs beyond what's required by law, called "waivers," began providing
 the in-home care required to make this possible for a select few.  The times have changed, but the law hasn't.  It's 2003, and I
 and others still rely on optional waiver programs that provide home care, but institutions, remaining mandatory under law, chew up
 75% of long term care funding nationally.  This means that when people need care, they most often don't have a chance for a life
 they'd prefer at home; they will be segregated in the back room of some far-away, expensive institution, and certainly won't be
 seen on a college campus.

 This is wrong of course, but few see it, even the people institutionalized.  The nursing home industry is a lot like The Matrix.
 These institutions are artificial worlds created by corporations or government, little reason for being but to exploit their inhabitants
 for resources.  The residents largely don't know something better exists.  They assume The Matrix is the only reality; it's all that they know.

 Senator Jim Inhofe (R-Pissquik)'s handpicked candidate, "King" Kirk Humphreys was anointed today
 by two more members of the Oklahoman Republican establishment at a press conference at 10:30 a.m.

"King Kirk isn't even an official candidate for the United States Senate, and just as we have witnessed in the past,
 the Republican party bosses have already moved in and are trying to anoint someone as Oklahoma's next Senator,"
 Oklahoma Democratic Party Chairman Jay Parmley said today.

"You would have thought after the failed anointment of Steve Largent for Governor, Cathy Keating for Congress,
 and Andy Ewing for Congress that the Republican establishment would have figured out that Oklahoma voters
 find it offensive to try and cram a candidate down our throats.

"Wake up Senator Inhofe, Congressman Sullivan, and Mayor LaFortune, this is Oklahoma and we prefer
 to have an election -- not a coronation."

 Trust me, Jim Inhofe is bigger than God in Oklahoma.
 With Jesse Helms gone, Pissquik is the biggest asshole in all of Congress.
 If he wanted bin Laden to replace him (not too far off) Oklahoma voters would eat it with a spoon.
 Jim Inhofe is the leading unfit bastard in a party full of unfit bastards.

 Evidence including recordings indicates that Wal-Mart had direct knowledge of  immigration violations
 involving its cleaning contractors at stores across the country, federal law enforcement sources said.

 Federal agents raided Wal-Mart's headquarters and 60 of its stores across the nation Thursday,
 arresting more than 300 illegal workers in an immigration crackdown at the world's biggest retailer.

 The workers were members of cleaning crews hired by outside contractors, but federal law enforcement
 officials who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity said Wal-Mart knew of the violations.
 They cited recordings of meetings and conversations among Wal-Mart executives, managers and contractors.

"We have seen no evidence of this from the INS, and, if that turns out to be true, we will cooperate fully
 with law enforcement officials," Wal-Mart spokeswoman Mona Williams said.

 Wow - that last line sounds just like the vulgar addict's, "I am aware of no such investigation."

 That could be why the reckless and possibly illegal leaking of Plame's name stirred so little reaction from
 administration officials, including the president, until the CIA finally demanded prosecution.
