"Does the president really believe that suicide bombers are willing to strap
  explosives to their bodies because we're restoring electricity and creating jobs for Iraqis?
  Is the president arguing that the better things get in Iraq,
  the more dangerous it will become for American soldiers?"
   --John Kerry, finally showing a little outrage that Bush is ruining the world,Attribution

 Red Cross, Three Police Stations Bombed 

  Click  Here

 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.

 "Bring 'em on!! We're not scared!!"


"The more progress we make on the ground, the more free the Iraqis
  become, the more electricity is available, the more jobs are available,
  the more kids that are going to school, the more desperate these killers become.
  They can't stand the thought of a free society. They hate freedom.
  They love terror. They love to try to create fear and chaos."

 I don't even know what peak oil is, but if Bush is for it, I'm against it.

 Dissing Dissent
 In White House Actions, A Troubling Echo of Life in Communist China
   by Liu Baifang

  Click  Here

 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.

 So George, how do you feel about your mom and dad?

  Click  Here

 As the alcoholic George Bush approached his 40th birthday in 1986, he had achieved nothing he could call his own.
 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 became
 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 knees
 and implored God to help him and became a teetotalling, fundamentalist Christian.

 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 the impulsive,
 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 away."

 Oh just suck me.

 Clinton has always been the opposite of this failed loser. Clinton didn't even have a dad, and he grew up with nothing
 and made every giant leap on just his talent and determination, whereas the Pinhead had it all handed to him.
 Suck me with this "George caged his demons but Clinton didn't" horseshit.

 Elizabeth Smart Caught in Media Crossfire
  This is a very strange story of the media madness from all angles

  Click  Here

Couric is central to the story of the media battle over the story. Elizabeth's parents, have written a book
 to be released Tuesday. They also cooperated with CBS on a television movie due to air Nov. 9.

 Doubleday constructed a media campaign that granted Couric the first news interview which aired Friday on "Dateline NBC."
 But six days before Couric's interview was shown, CBS broadcast an interview with the parents from the set of the movie
"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
 and his wife did to her while she was helpless. This can't be comfortable for her. It's kinda ugly.

 "Some people are greedy..."

 Free Speech Kept Off US Streets
 Not allowed with this unelected "president," ACLU to sue

  Click  Here

 When Bill Neel learned that Bush was coming to town last year, he decided
 he would be on hand to protest the president's economic policies.

 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.

 If the Republicans cared about the Constitution, they wouldn't allow Bush to do this.
 The Democrats are bust crapping their pants with fear every day - so we have to look to the GOP for help.

 Ricky Z

 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."

 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 this nation.

 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 killed JFK

 Dear Bart,

 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 alone.

 Gee, is there any room for discussion here, guys?

  Click  Here

 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 Monday.

 (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 killing.

"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 man's confession?

 I got a feeling ABC's owners, Disney, want to keep their billion dollar tax breaks coming.
