Three Police Stations Bombed
A team of suicide car bombers devastated the Red Cross headquarters and
three police stations Monday,
killing three dozen people and wounding more than 200 in the bloodiest
day in Baghdad since the occupation.
From north to south in Baghdad, the explosions over a 45-minute
period left streetscapes of broken bodies
and twisted wreckage. The dead included a U.S. soldier, eight Iraqi policemen
and at least 26 Iraqi civilians.

more free the Iraqis

In White House Actions, A Troubling Echo of Life in Communist
by Liu Baifang
I grew up in the People's Republic of China,
so I know how it is to live in a place where
voicing opinions that differ from official
orthodoxy can be dangerous, and I fear that model.
I also worry about what I see happening
to our media and freedom of the press. The Bush administration
has repeatedly made clear that it does not
welcome skeptical, penetrating questions.
Indeed, Bush press conferences, which I
enjoy watching, seem to me to have become more and more like those
held by the Chinese Communist Party: Nothing
but the official line is given, and probing questions from reporters,
which are crucial to advancing the public's understanding
of the government's actions, are often evaded or ignored.
Moreover, as Helen Thomas recently learned, too-persistent
questioning on sensitive issues means that the next time
you are ignored, even relegated to the back row
of the briefing..
The Bush bastards are afraid of Helen Thomas because she refuses
to be bought like most of the whore press.
George, how do you feel about your mom and dad?
As the alcoholic George Bush approached
his 40th birthday in 1986, he had achieved nothing he could call his
He was all too aware that none of his educational
and professional accomplishments would have occured without his father.
He felt so low that he did not care if he lived
or died. Taking a friend out for a flight in a Cessna aeroplane, it only
apparent he had not flown one before when they
nearly crashed on take-off. Narrowly avoiding stalling a few times, they
crash-landed and the friend breathed a sigh of
relief - only for Bush to rev up the engine and take off again.
Not long afterwards, staring at his vomit-spattered
face in the mirror, this dangerously self-destructive man fell to his
and implored God to help him and became a teetotalling,
So I was right - I knew something monsterously
serious/tragic made him give up his best friend, the bottle.
David Frum, his speechwriter, described
the change: "Sigmund Freud imported the Latin pronoun id to describe
carnal, unruly elements of the human personality.
[In his youth] Bush's id seems to have been every bit as powerful and
destructive as Clinton's id. But sometime in
Bush's middle years, his id was captured, shackled and manacled, and locked
Oh just suck me.

Smart Caught in Media Crossfire
is a very strange story of the media madness from all angles
Couric is central to the story of the media battle
over the story. Elizabeth's parents, have written a book

granted Couric the first news interview which aired Friday on "Dateline
But six days before Couric's interview was
shown, CBS broadcast an interview with the parents from the set of the
"Good Morning America" also ran clips from an Elizabeth
Smart interview. The source? Oprah.
Winfrey was miffed that she was awarded
the second, not the first, sources say.
A Winfrey spokeswoman said it was strictly
promotion, not anger, that led Oprah to "GMA."
Is the father enjoying the power and attention
a little too much (assuming he's in charge)?
It's hard to believe Elizabeth wants this much
attention, which everybody whispering about what the religio-nut

Speech Kept Off US Streets
allowed with this unelected "president," ACLU to sue
When Bill Neel learned that Bush was coming
to town last year, he decided
he would be on hand to protest the president's
Neel and his sister made a hand-lettered
sign — The Bush family must surely love the poor!
They have made so many of us! — and
headed for a road where the motorcade would pass.
He was approached by a local police detective
and told that he and his sister had to move to a
"free-speech area" for protesters, on orders
of the U.S. Secret Service.
"He pointed out a relatively remote baseball diamond
that was enclosed in a chain-link fence," Neel recalls.
"I could see these people behind the fence, with
their faces up against it, and their hands on the wire. It looked
more like a concentration camp than a free-speech
area to me, so I said, `I'm not going in there. I thought the
whole country was a free-speech area.'"
After refusing several times to go to the area,
he was handcuffed and arrested on a charge of disorderly conduct.
When his sister argued against the arrest,
she was cuffed and hauled off as well. The two spent the president's
visit in a firehouse that was serving as Secret
Service headquarters for the event.
The Neels' experience is not unique.
Reminder: Clinton freely walked amonst the people. going
to McDonalds, meeting and talking with citizens,
but the never-elected punk and his goon can't because they are hated by
tens of millions of Americans.

allow Bush to do this.

have to look to the GOP for help.

Dude, good point.
Yesterday, I heard that SOB subbing for the vulgar
junkie whining about the same thing.
He said, "The press just wants to focus on
the soldiers dying every day. They don't mention
the schools and the hospitals that are open
now and the electricity that's being turned on."
Funny, just a few years ago, America had the most
peace and prosperity in all of history, but the press
and every Republican bastard in the country
was fixated on which way Clinton's cock might lean.
They didn't want to talk about the tens of millions
of families that could afford new homes and a second car
for the first time in their lives. They didn't
want to talk about the raises and promotions and vacations that
people got for the first time under Clinton,
or the tens of thousands of dollars people put into savings when
the economy was pumping like a freight train
- no, they just wanted to talk about oral sex and Monica.
Reminder: When they tell you Clinton made oral
sex dinner conversation - they're lying.
Clinton did all he could to hide it, the GOP
and the dirty-leg press made it dinner conversation.
So the illegal and never-elected moron can just
live with the fact that men are dying.
He sent those men to their deaths to increase
his odds next November, so screw his lying ass.
"Some Republicans are gunning for the upcoming CBS
miniseries "The Reagans." Apparently the script
doesn't discuss the greatness of the "Reagan
recovery" (1983-89) following the Reagan recession (1981-83),
or other GOP talking points...many in the
GOP today are bent on propagating a reverential view of their party's
recent leaders — from the fictionalized,
unrecognizably heroic George W. Bush seen in Showtime's recent
"DC 9/11: Time of Crisis," to CNN's presentation
of George H. W. Bush's heroic World War II exploits, to the
demand for a heroic recollection of "Dutch." See
the pattern? Nothing but "honor and dignity" in these White
Houses. The push to mythologize Reagan's
regime is perhaps the weirdest part of this program. In 1989, as he
left office, Reagan was widely seen as an
embarrassment. The man himself seemed addled; Iran-contra had clouded
his presidency in criminal intrigue; agencies
like HUD and FEMA stood exposed as cesspools of corruption."

A Brief History
of Computerized Election Fraud in America
Doesn't anybody care? The GOP will be in charge until we get out voting
Thanks in part to the recent Bush approved Help
America Vote Act (HAVA), squadrons of shiny new
Touch Screen Trojan horses are being rolled
into precincts across America. Not, as we are told, to make
voting easier or more accurate, or to help disabled
people vote privately, or to save America from the dangers
of hanging chad and butterfly ballots -- no.
The real reason America is being flooded with billions of dollars
worth of paperless computerized voting machines
is so that no one will ever again be able to prove vote fraud.
These machines are not just unverifiable, they
are secretly programmed (their software is not open to scrutiny
by election officials or computer experts),
equipped with modems, accessible by computer, telephone, and satellite.
They are the final product of decades of work
by the election rigging industry. When they are installed in every
precinct in America, our elections will finally
become completely meaningless, nothing more than charades behind
which criminal thugs will wield the power of

Subject: Department of Defense
Sam or Bart,
The Department of Defense was created in 1947
under Harry Truman, not Dwight Eishnhower.
It was a combination of the old Departments
of War and of the Navy. At the same time,
the Army Air Forces were detached from the Army
and formed into a new service, the Air Force.
The Marine Corps was kept in existence, no one
knows just why, to be administered
through the Department of the Navy. At
the same time, the National Security Council,
and our special friend, the Central Inteligence
agency were established.

Subject: ABC says Oswald alone
I guess the theory is that if you keep telling
people a lie, and tell them they are idiots
for not believing it, they will eventually
believe it. Now we have an investigation which
"irrefutably confirms that " Oswald killed Kennedy
Gee, is there any room for discussion here, guys?
ABC News has conducted an exhaustive investigation
of the Kennedy assassination,
complete with a computer-generated reconstruction,
which irrefutably confirms that
Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone, the network said
(Ooooh, they used computers - that
means they can't be wrong.)
A two-hour special on the event is scheduled to
air Nov. 20, two days before the
40th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's
"It leaves no room for doubt," said Tom Yellin, executive
producer of the special.
He called the results of the ABC's study "enormously
powerful. It's irrefutable."
The Zapruder tape (and others) used eight millimeter film, meaning it
used eight frames per second.
That being a fact, experts were able to determine if took Oswald X amount
of time to shoot three shots.
(The rifle is a bolt-action rifle, meaning after each shot, you have to
lift and pull the lever to expel the spent
cartridge and load the next bullet into the chamber.) The trouble
is, the FBI's top marksman was unable to
shoot three bullets within that period of time with Oswald's rifle. It
just wasn't possible he said, and he wasn't
even aiming - he was just trying to get off three bullets and couldn't
do it. Until they address that, I'm still going
to be suspicious. Was Oswald faster than every shooter in the FBI,
and he still had time to aim?
Through interviews and other documentation, ABC
News also concludes that Jack Ruby,
who later killed Oswald, acted simply out of
his love for Kennedy.
Maybe a dying man tells lies, but I have a copy of the Ruby tape where
he tells the camera that the
real people behind the assassination will never be caught because they
are too powerful and have too
much to gain by staying hidden - but ABC says we should ignore the guilty
