Quote of the Day
"Seeing the care that these troops get is
Mindless platitudes from a greed monkey
"While the nation's attention is focused on
the slow-motion deterioration of Iraq, the White House for months
has been at war on the home front -- clashing repeatedly with the CIA in a rare series of public disagreements.
They've fought over intelligence that seemed to predict the 9/11 terrorist attacks. They've fought over whether
Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. They've fought over a seemingly vindictive White House
leak that identified an undercover CIA agent. According to Thomas Powers, a widely respected authority on
the nation's spy business, that conflict has put the CIA -- and U.S. national security -- in peril....
Powers wonders who will take the rap for 9/11 and the "horrific, calamitous" mistake in Iraq."

I can answer that - anybody but the guy responsible - Bush.
The Stop The War Coalition said yesterday that it had been told by the police that it would not
be allowed to demonstrate in Parliament Square and Whitehall next Thursday - a ban it said it was
determined to resist. The coalition says that it has also been told by British officials that American
officials want a distance kept between Mr Bush and protesters, for
prevent their appearance in the same television shots.
The Metropolitan Police banned the Parliament
Square and Whitehall route by the use of Sessional Orders
- which can be enforced for such a purpose when Parliament is in session.

Baghdad to Dover - a group hug
saw it on smirkingchimp.com
President George W. Bush says HE is the one responsible for giving the hugs and for comforting
those whose young loved ones have fallen -- broken and bloody -- in his mighty crusade to rid the
entire world of evil and to bring every single evildoer to justice, one by one by one.
Yes. He is responsible. We are not to worry
our pretty little heads about it. We are to remain silent
because our president says he is our national voice. He is our conscience. With each fallen son or
daughter, he speaks for us -- although a bit glibly and far too rapidly. In his best John Wayne
"I'm only gonna say this once" voice, Bush says our hearts-and-minds-and-souls- and-thoughts
-and-prayers "go out" to grieving mothers, fathers, wives and children of these brave soldiers and marines.
When asked why the "Chief Hugger and Comforter"
refuses to address the daily loss of American life,
why he attends no funerals, why he is AWOL from solemn duty at Deleware's Dover Air Force Base,
his spokespersons say there's no need to repeat the heart-and-soul mantra every time an American
is killed, because -- by golly -- this is going to be a long war.
"I'm too busy to go to funerals.
Now, ...watch this drive..."
Letter from a Veteran
As a vet, I don't want to see my nephews and friends sucked into the military, when it was all unnecessary from the start.
If they decide to go, I'll be proud and send them off with all my prayers. But I don't want to see them forced into it.
Bush lied us into war, and I don't want anymore men & women coming home in boxes because of it. I don't want to
hear them play taps as someone I love is lowered into the ground. We have to let people know that a vote for Bush
is a vote to send your son, or brother into a war that was never needed for a president that was never elected.
Lays Wreath to 'Honor' Veterans
Cruel joke not seen as funny by all military families
Mired in a complicated, unfinished mission in Iraq, Bush paused on Veterans Day to reflect
on the sacrifices of 140,000 U.S. soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan and to honor soldiers of past wars.
"This nation has always gone to war reluctantly," Bush lied.
"The loss is terrible. It is borne especially
by the families left behind, but in their hurt and in their loneliness,
I want these families to know: Your loved ones served in a good and just cause," he lied again.
Excuse me, but stealing Iraq's oil is not
a good and just cause. Dying trying to take bin Laden into custody
is a good and just cause, not raping Baghdad so the B.F.E.E. can steal more billions. Of course, right after
lying to the military families Bush went back to Al Gore's house and worked on ways to cut the salaries and
benefits for the men and women who are currently being shot at under orders from the Commander in Thief.
"Screw those whiners!
They're overpaid, anyway."
Every time a soldier dies in Afghanistan or Iraq, Gordon Hartke pushes another stick holding a flag into the ground of his front yard.
The landscaping contractor started with a box of 300 of the 10-inch by 18-inch American flags, placing them one by one through the
Afghanistan "War on Terror," the Iraq invasion and the tenuous cease-fire. He started hanging them from fishing line strung between
his trees, but before long, the string was full and the box was empty. Now there are 353 flags and he has had to start sticking them into the ground.
He has ordered another 60 from his Rhode
Island-based supplier. Those should will include a British, Australian
and a POW flag.
With soldiers dying in ones, twos and threes every day, he's stopped putting them out one at a time, he said.
"I have to do them a dozen at a time," he said.

It's terrible that Bush has gotten us in a war he can't win.
"Tensions between U.S. forces and Iraqis in
the Shiite Muslim enclave, Sadr City, rose Monday after
the head of the U.S.-appointed municipal council, Muhanad al-Kaadi, was shot and killed by an American
soldier guarding municipal headquarters. The U.S. military said the shooting occurred Sunday when
al-Kaadi got into an argument with a soldier guarding the council headquarters. The statement blamed
the altercation on "his refusal to follow instructions of the onsite security officer who was enforcing"
regulations "in accordance with the rules of engagement." An American medic administered first aid
and rushed him to a military clinic where he was pronounced dead, a U.S. statement said. Al-Kaadi,
who spoke fluent English, had been trying to improve relations between the Americans and residents
of the impoverished community."

Flynt has nude photos of Jessica Lynch
Says he won't publish them because Bush already screwed her
Click Here and then Click Here
The photos, which Flynt's publicist says shows her undressed (they mean topless) posing
with male soldiers, were sold to Flynt last month, according to a statement from Flynt.
The publicist, who would not give her name, said Flynt "has no plans to use the photos."
"Jessica Lynch is a good kid, she's not a hypocrite
or out to fool anyone," Flynt's statement said.
"She's just a victim of the Bush administration, who is using her to justify the war in Iraq and force-feed us a Joan of Arc."
FOX News: Larry Flynt said he's bought the photos of Lynch
to prevent them from ever being published.
That Larry's a real sweetheart, isn't he?
It seems that any woman who poses topless "with the guys" can't
be too shocked if those photos
get circulated, especially now that she's one of the most famous people in America.
BTW, I saw Diane Peroxide on Regis and Kelly Tuesday morning.
She talked about her interview with Jessica,
and told a cute story. She said once when Jessica called home, she asked her mom if her story had made it into
the County newspaper. Her mom assured her that her story got a little more attention than that.
Subject: Is America torturing prisoners?
There have been many allegations that the
Bush Administration is torturing prisoners of war
being held indefinitely at Guantánamo Bay, which they deny. But who is telling the truth?
Are they being tortured or aren't they?
The question can be easily resolved if Bush would
let in the media or the Red Cross - but he refuses to do so. Why? Who knows for sure -
but when you have a president who is covering up - it makes you wonder if he has something to hide.

From yesterday's NYPost - their site won't come up today
The CFO of the former publisher of Rosie O'Donnell's magazine admitted yesterday that they
reported bogus circulation figures to keep it afloat. Lawrence Diamond, CFO of Gruner + Jahr USA,
said company executives decided to "manage the financials" of Rosie magazine in order to keep publishing.
There was a critical clause in the contract
between O'Donnell and her publishing partner that if Rosie
lost more than the threshold amount of $4.2 million in a fiscal year, either side could call it quits.
"I think it was obvious we did not want to shut
down," Diamond testified.
That has to be a crime, right?
I never read her stupid magazine, but I assume they sold ads?
If they lied about their circulation, they obtained money under false pretenses, right?
But since they're white and rich, they won't even be charged.
When I was in high school in Little Rock, I went over to a friends house one day.
I think his name was David Wilson and his doctor father was super-rich.
Their mansion had white pillars like the White House, and I remember him saying
they were so rich, they had two subscriptions to TV Guide. That way, if two people
wanted to read TV Guide at the same time, nobody would have to wait.
Well, I guess I'm super-rich now, because
we get two issues of TV Guide every week.
For a dollar a year, they send an extra issue, which seems very unlikely, but I'm sure they
do that so they can tell advertisers how much their circulation is growing. I guess nobody
really gets hurt except the postman, who havs to carry double the weight. Is that fair?
November 12, 1943
The Germans launched division sized combined
sea borne and airborne invasion of the British held
island of Leros in the Aegean Sea. The British defenders were subjected to heavy air attacks from
Stuka dive-bombers as the RAF was unable to provide support to the distant outpost. Heavy fighting ensued.
Soviet forces continue their drive out of
Kiev, entering Zhitomir. German resistance grows more serious
as reinforcements arrive to begin patching up their shattered lines.
The 52 surviving Japanese aircraft at Rabaul
were withdrawn ending the biggest threat to the Marine
operations on Bouganville. Many of Japans best pilots were lost in this forlorn campaign.

"Last week the magazine Army Times ran a story
with the headline "An Act of `Betrayal,' " and the subtitle
"In the midst of war, key family benefits face cuts." The article went on to assert that there has been 'a string
of actions by the Bush administration to cut or hold down growth in pay and benefits, including basic pay,
combat pay, health-care benefits and the death gratuity paid to survivors of troops who die on active duty
...one might have expected the administration to treat the military differently, if only as a matter of sheer
political calculation. After all, the military needs some mollifying: the Iraq war has turned increasingly
nightmarish, and deference toward the administration is visibly eroding. Even Pfc. Jessica Lynch has,
to her credit, balked at playing her scripted role...Publications like Army Times are obviously going off
the reservation. Retired military officers, like Gen. Anthony Zinni - formerly President Bush's envoy
to the Middle East - have started to offer harsh, indeed unprintable, assessments of administration
policies. If this disillusionment spreads to the rank and file, the politics of 2004 may be very different
from what anyone expects."

Subject: The death of irony???
After September 11th, I remember all these
people saying that "Irony is dead".
I never got the connection between irony and a couple dozen homicidal lunatics
crashing planes into buildings, but that's beside the point.
Today, our AWOL un-elected "president" gave
a speech honoring soldiers in
the service of democracy at the freaking Heritage Foundation, a group dedicated to,
among other things, establishing a Christian theocracy in America.
Okay? Get that? A deserter honoring
A chimp-like buffoon who committed election fraud praising democracy?
To a group who would like us to be ruled by religious edict?

Ten Commandments Judge Heads to 'Trial'
In a recent interview with WAFF-TV News, Moore said, "The very purpose of [the First Amendment]
was to acknowledge God and to allow the freedom to worship God. The Constitution of Alabama says
that our justice system, over which I'm the chief administrating officer, is established in evoking the favor
and guidance in almighty God. So whether you're talking about your state constitution or your federal
constitution, it acknowledges God. "This judge simply said we cannot acknowledge God," Moore added.
Why do people follow a man they know is lying?
Nobody ever said this nut couldn't acknowledge God.
They said he couldn't put a 5000 pound chunk of granite on property he didn't own.
Every follower of his knows this, but they must reject the facts to build a case.

I grew up in NW Okla (remember Miss America?) and when I was 24 moved to Oregon.
Although never used in my home the "N" word
for blacks was used so frequently that until I was
about 14 years old I didn't even realize that it was a derogitory word. And this in a town where
the nearest black person lived 125 miles away in Enid. They hated what they did not even know.
Just last week my father, who still lives
there, told me how he changed churches because they let
the pig farmers come to his old church. I thought, "How Christian." He's always been so happy
that OK is a right to work state. To me that means: right to work for free state.

The Bush Cartel Ministry of Truth heard that a young blonde female soldier was severely injured
and they made up a heroic story about her, as part of their ongoing Iraq-war attempt to manipulate
American public opinion.
And what does Jessica Lynch do? She has
the nerve to toss out the script the propagandists wrote for her.
She has the audacity to speak for herself. She has the American heartland respect for the truth. She became
a hero, in an entirely different role than the Bush Cartel wrote for her.
Jessica Lynch, the young woman who joined
the army after she was turned down for a position at Wal-Mart
has something no one else in the Bush Cartel has -- or anyone in the fawning corporate media -- or anyone of
the braying "amen choir" of millionaire GOP television and radio pundits: Jessica Lynch has integrity.

"As the war in Iraq continues to go badly,
sending back news of a daily casualty count,
Bush's common-touch artifice is beginning to wear thinner than the backside of his
Crawford jeans. Showing through is the real Bush, his swaggering arrogance,
unidimensional understanding of issues, congenital lack of sympathy and intense pique
at challenging questions. When Bush was asked at a recent news conference whether
he could promise that there will be fewer American troops in Iraq in a year, he refused
to answer, calling it a "trick question." Bush has no oratorical powers to justify his
policies and treats anyone who asks him to do so as his enemy."

It is curious, the Food and Drug Administration chose Tulsa, and RxDepot to
hit with a lawsuit about filling prescriptions in Canada. Now they could have done
that in Arkansas, but perhaps that would be too obvious.
It is also curious that Wal Mart made it's
Contribution to Sullivan about the same time as the FDA hammer fell on Rx.
Equally curious is the fact that Sullivan made his speech about organized
crime and Canadian prescriptions while Rx and the FDA were fighting it
out in federal court in Tulsa.

The U.S. military remains a Republican redoubt, and most service members are still likely to

administration that have long troubled top officers, both active and retired, are now heard
among the enlisted and the noncommissioned as well. The troops are not thrilled about the war.
