"Something had to be done. Over the long haul,
Hey Bruce, what will that solve? What if democracy
"The toppling of a dummy of George Bush in
Trafalgar Square was one of this yearÔø‡Ôø‡Ôø‡s low points.
The hideousness and nihilism of the thought which animated it - that Bush equals Saddam - point again
to the fevered, media-blasted thoughtlessness of much current politics, and suggest that people now are
stirred to activism largely in order to demonstrate their moral superiority."
--John Lloyd, Attribution
I agree, it's wrong to equate Saddam and the Unelected Pinhead.
Saddam hasn't invaded anybody in a decade - Bush invaded two countries in two years.
Saddam didn't send 150,000 American soldiers into the desert to die - Bush did that.
Saddam didn't go on some wild-ass, global murder spree after the world body begged him not to.
Saddam did tear up America's constitution and the Bill of Rights.
Saddam isn't keeping us from the truth about 9-11.
Saddam didn't kill 10,000-20,000 Iraqi civilians this year.
Saddam never said, "I feel so bad for the dead - now watch this drive," on a golf course.
You'd have to be a heartless bastard to do that.
The jury recommended death for two of the four counts Muhammad was convicted of last week
in last year's shooting death of Dean Harold Meyers: terrorism and capital murder.
They had deliberated for about four hours Friday.
Muhammad also received a 10-year sentence
recommendation for conspiracy and a three-year
sentence recommendation for use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.
Judge LeRoy Millette set a formal sentencing
date of February 12. Under Virginia law,
Millette has the final word and can reduce the jury's recommended sentence.
He damn well better not reduce this sentence.
If anyone needs to go, it's a guy like Muhammed, who terrorized several states with his sniper rifle.
This isn't some guy who lost him temper and killed his wife or his best friend.
This was murder for sport, and that judge better let the jury have their way.
I've always been torn on the death penalty, but in this case,
the only tear I have is in my right knee.
Goodbye, John - say hi to McVeigh and Nixon.
Five U.S. Soldiers Die in Afghan Crash
Five U.S. soldiers were killed and seven injured when their helicopter crashed Sunday,
U.S. Central Command said. The soldiers were involved in an ongoing U.S. military operation,
dubbed Mountain Resolve, taking place in the east of the country, the military said.
"A U.S. military helicopter crashed today near
Bagram," said Central Command, in Tampa, Fla.
"Early reports indicate seven service members were injured and at least five service members were killed."
They died fighting in a country that harbored bin Laden.(Probably)
All these deaths would be easier to take if it wasn't all to make the B.F.E.E. richer.
"We have protests at home, too.
They now have that right in Baghdad as well."
--Dubya, on the London protests, Attribution
I think Bush is saying we should thank him, because when we protest
the police push us behind a wall where nobody can see us. In Baghdad, they just shoot you.
Thank you, Governor.

Considers Eliminating MTBE Provision
Who needs clean drinking water, anyway?
On the day that senators blocked an energy bill, officials in Calif., announced that three oil companies
had agreed to pay $92.5 million to rid the city's drinking water of a smelly gasoline additive called MTBE.
It was a coincidence of timing that dramatized how two issue have become intertwined.
Controversy over MTBE fouling drinking water
has cut to the heart of a debate in Congress
over energy legislation and could determine whether Bush gets a bill he badly wants this year.
"It's another tobacco thing all over again," Hastert
said Sunday when asked to explain why the measure
abruptly stalled in the Senate last Friday after GOP leaders couldn't get enough support to bring it to a vote.
Under President Looter and polluter, the oil companies get whatever they want.
"Unka Dick, can you explain again why dirty air
and dirty water is better for the little children?"
Boston Church to Discuss Closing Parishes
Archbishop Sean P. O'Malley, who has been trying to lead the Boston Archdiocese
out of a sex scandal, plans to meet next month with priests to discuss closing parishes.
"There's been speculation about parish closings
and about the need to allocate resources,
and certainly those things will be discussed," spokesman Father Coyne said.
But he said no announcement about particular
parish closings would be made at the meeting
and no decisions on the number of parishes or even which parishes to close had yet been made.
I want to say something that you're not
going to liker, but it's true, so that's why I'm saying it.
The Catholic Church is a business. It's a different kind of business than Wal-Mart or Arby's,
but it's a business and it has to be run like a business and decisions are often made on that basis.
Remember when K-mart filed bankruptcy, they
announced they were going to close 600 stores?
They said they'd be closing the stores with the weakest profits and about-to-renew property leases.
As a rule, the Church owns the property on which their assets sit, so there will be few, in any,
decisions made on the timing of lease renewals, but that profit thing looms very, vary large.
What they will do is get a map and a list of parishes and the
monthly gross from each church
and make sound, businesslike financial decisions about which churches to close.
Will they close a church whose parking lot us full of brand new
Will they close a church whose parking lot us full of cars made
by BMWs, Mercedes and Accura?
They will close a church whose parking lot is full of rusted,
They will close a church whose parking lot is full of cars with dents and cracked winshields.
They will close a church whose parking lot is full of people waiting for the next scheduled bus.
If it was strictly a business situation they would be blameless.
Like a hospital or a government,
they have to balance higher profits against the greater good, but in this case, the tough business
decisions have to be made because they don't have or want a zero tolerance policy when it
comes to their Michael Jackson problem.
Why was Michael Jackson arrested, while hundreds or thousands of priests have been given
a "don't let it happen again," warning and a new parish to pstrol for victims?
But the bottom line (no pun) in Boston is that the poorest people
in Boston are the ones who
will lose their churches because of the priests' lust. The faithful ones who need their church's help
more than the rich people are the ones using three bus transfers to get to a church far, far away.
Is that what Jesus would have done?
Would Jesus have helped the man in the BMW before helping the poor man riding the bus?

Did you see that "interview?"
It was probably the mosty animated attack that whore Scheiffer put on anybody.
His voice got higher than the vulgar junkies and he kept squealing at Clark.
I wish Clark would've told him to pipe his ass down before he shut him up, personally.
Have you ever noticed that the gas-guzzling,
terror-financing SUVs are often named after
the most beautiful places in America that the B.F.E.E. and the Republicans want to destroy?
If you're in Seattle and buy a new Buick Ranier, aren't you slightly hurting Mt. Ranier?
If you're in Salt Lake and buy a new Cadillac Escalade,
aren't you creating more acid rain to
fall on that beautiful Crimson Staircase thing that Clinton made off limits to mining and oil companies,
but then the Illegal Thug reversed that soon after stealing power.
The Tahoe, Durango, Yukon Denali, Sedona and
Sequoia - what do they have in common?
Those are all places the B.F.E.E. wants filled with oil rigs, strip mining, looters and polluters, the bastards.
After all, preserving those parks won't make the B.F.E.E. any richer, so why should anyone care?
They must think it's real cute to destroy the environment with vehicles named after our lost parks.

Al Arabiya ordered to shut down in Baghdad
The Iraqi Governing Council (Read: BFEE) ordered the Arab language television network al Arabiya
to shut down its operation in Baghdad on Monday, sending the Iraq Interior Ministry to the network's
headquarters to "seize their uplink and transmission equipment until further notice."
"This is in response to their broadcasting the
full Saddam Hussein audiotape" released November 16,
according to a spokesman for Jalal Talabani, the council's president.
OK, so the US military is a little nicer than I'd be on the battlefield,
but...is the B.F.E.E. slipping?
They make lots of money by destroying things, and then they make a lot more money having
Unka Dick's Halliburton rebuild everything they just destroyed, with American taxpeyer money, of course.
This time, they just shut them down, instead of destroying and rebuilding.
I wonder why?
Bush swore he'd get bin Laden.
He vowed "to bring him to justice or bring justice to him."
That's why his approval numbers went to the high eighties.
That was almost 800 days ago ...and counting
But then he changed his mind and went after easier targets
- targets with oil he could steal.

Subject: The bullet that killed JFK
.. The actual bullet.
Unless I am mistaken, the official Warren Commission line is that the "magic bullet," the nearly-pristine example
"found" on the stretcher at Parkland, is alleged to be the one which hit both Kennedy and Connally. Many hoped
that Governor Connally's widow would allow a post-mortem to be conducted so that bullet fragments remaining in
the Governor's wrist could be extracted. Had the fragments added up to more than the tiny amount of metal missing
from the "magic bullet," the presence of at least a second projectile would be conclusively proved.
There were some other fragments recovered
from the limo which went missing almost immediately. The "magic bullet"
is the "evidence" connecting "Oswald"'s Mannlicher-Carcano to the assassination. The original reports regarding the
weapon recovered from the "sniper's nest" on the 6th floor of the TSBD described the weapon as an 8mm Mauser rifle,
but were soon changed to conform to the official line that the weapon was a Mannlicher-Carcano. "Oswald"'s rifle was
mail-ordered under an alias, and the palm-print found on it was not initially present; the most plausible scenario is the one
depicted in Stone's film "JFK," in which the palm print was applied after Oswald's death.

Before I could finish my exhilarating "no surgery" weekend,
the refrigerator died.
Mrs. Bart has a whole Thanksgiving Bacchus planned ...but ...without a refrigerator?.
So today, I have to emergency-search for a refrigerator that can be delivered right away.
We had to re-buy everything in the fridge when it died six months
ago, and again when we had
to unplug it for floor surgery in the late summer, and he we go again. Seems like every 90 days
we re-buy everything that goes in the refrigerator and I also have to wipe my C drive clean.
It's not supposed to be this hard - is it?

U.S. backs new Georgia government
The United States offered its support to the interim leadership of Georgia after a tumultuous weekend,
during which the president of the former Soviet republic resigned as his opposition threatened to storm his residence.
Colin Powell on Sunday called opposition
figure Nino Burdzhanadze, who will lead an interim government until new
elections can be held, "to offer our support and to encourage her and her colleagues to proceed in a manner consistent
with Georgia's Constitution," said State Department spokesman Richard Boucher.
Boucher praised outgoing Georgian President
Eduard Shevardnadze. "We know that President Shevardnadze's decision
was difficult, but that he made his decision in the best interests of the people of Georgia," Boucher said. "Shevardnadze
has been a towering figure in Georgian history and a close friend of the United States."
If Shevardnadze was such a good friend to
America, why did Bush go along with this coup?
Did Shevardnadze refuse to play ball, like the president of Venezuela did?
Since absolute power corrupts absolutely, I guess the Trained
Monkey can go all around the world
and install whoever he wants in whatever countries he likes, and invade the ones that resist.
"Nobody can stop me!
The Democrats are afraid of Unka Karl!"
Remember, I predicted it long ago: Since the Democrats
are scared to death (except for Clark and Dean)
America will look for a Republican to step in and stop this crazy madman from destroying the world.
Hell, if Bush tries to take our guns, the N.R.A. may be what stops this global thief, rapist and murderer.

- Lingering Shadows
by Michael Hammerschlag
40 years ago the world changed in a flash. The evidence for conspiracy is compelling: faked Life cover photo
of Oswald and rifle with shadows falling in different directions, people pointing and running towards the grassy knoll,
photos of a rifle barrel and puffs of smoke there, a policeman challenging secret service agents that didnÔø‡Ôø‡Ôø‡t exist in the
grassy knoll, a bullet that supposedly passed through a neck, chest, and shattered a wrist to emerge undamaged, the
immediate murder of Oswald (and his Soviet defection and Cuban connections), RubyÔø‡Ôø‡Ôø‡s Mafia employers, lost and
altered evidence, additional audio gunshots, delayed botched autopsy.
That there was a conspiracy seems obvious
(over 90% of the country believes so), yet magazines still runs the same
hackneyed Ôø‡Ôø‡Ôø‡historicalÔø‡Ôø‡Ôø‡ pictures, wishing as we would wish that it could be that simple. Who actually was responsible:
the Mafia, disgruntled Cuban refugees, the Soviet Union, a vengeful Castro, right-wing millionaire oilmen (Executive Action),
power mad Lyndon; may forever remain a mystery; once I chose to hope that a deathbed confession by some tormented
party would eventually bring the truth to light. The conspiracy theories defeat themselves, multiplying like mutant strains
till the truth itself is only another aberration, another chip in a pile of chips. Indeed, the very subject of conspiracy still causes
a virulent reaction because it challenges the basic order of things; the simple truths that are the foundations of our reality.
The White House and Pentagon have worked very hard to imply a connection between Saddam and al-Qaida,
but have studiously avoided an explicit assertion of this claim. President Bush, on countless occassions, has
mentioned Saddam and Osama bin Laden, 9/11 and Iraq, in consecutive, non sequitur sentences while
scrupulously avoiding the claim that some are now saying Hayes' article supports.
The clearest, most logical explanation for
this behavior is that this is because the administration lacks evidence
to support such a claim. While establishing such a link has clearly been in their interest -- as the most forceful
argument to initiate and now to continue the war on Iraq -- they have been cautious in not overstating the claim
that such a link can be demonstrated. If they had evidence, it stands to reason, they would have every reason
to share such evidence with the public and the world.

Tearjerkers are mostly chick flicks, so I missed 90 percent of them.
Since I missed them, I thought I'd give

For some stupid reason, they started with #1 and blew the suspense.
What's wrong with these losers?
You're supposed to start at 50 and work down.

04 An Affair to Remember - Didn't see it.
05 It's a Wonderful Life - Death by sugar overdose, but I didn't cry.
06 Longtime Companion - Didn't see it.
07 Brian's Song - saw parts of it the first time, not a chick flick
08 ET - I forgot ET died, but then he came back, but I didn't cry.
09 Ghost - I wouldn't see this film if Demi Moore was naked (Was she?)
10 Field of Dreams - I heard it was good, I should watch it sometime.
So, in the Top Ten, I've seen ET and slivers of three others
11 Old Yeller - Didn't see it.
12 Brief Encounter - Didn't see it.
13 Kramer vs Kramer - Didn't see it.
Did you know Kate Jackson was suppoosed to play the lead,
but Charlie's Angel's wouldn't let her do it so Meryl Streep won the Oscar.
14 Life is Beautiful - Didn't see it.
15 Titanic - Saw it, yes it was sad, but I didn't cry.
16 Glory - Didn't see it, but it sounds like Judy O'Christian
17 Love Story - Didn't see it, but it was about Al Gore.
18 Ordinary People - Didn't see it.
then it was time to turn the page - and look what I saw:
