 Sen. Clinton: U.S. Will Stand With Afghans 
  She went to eat turkey with the troops


  Click  Here

 Hillary on Thursday promised that America will stand with Afghanistan as it tries to rebuild
 after a quarter-century of conflict, and warned Taliban rebels that they "are fighting a losing battle."

 The former first lady, who was in Afghanistan along with Sen. Jack Reed, D-R.I., on a whistlestop tour
 to spend Thanksgiving with U.S. troops, said her country is impressed by the course Afghan President
 Hamid Karzai is taking his country, and determined to stand with him.

"I am very impressed by the resolve of the Afghan government, President Karzai in particular,"
 Clinton said after a meeting with Karzai at the presidential palace.  She spoke in a room at the palace
 still pocked by decades of conflict. Two windows behind Clinton had bullet holes in them. "

 Bush Makes Surprise Visit to Baghdad
  White House afraid Hillary looks braver than Illegal Moron

     "I told the press I pardoned this turkey... I lied."

  Click  Here

 Bush made a surprise Thanksgiving visit to American troops in Baghdad Thursday, flying there secretly to thank
 U.S. forces for serving there. It was the first trip by a president to Iraq '€" a mission tense with concern about his safety.

 With the president out of sight, Paul Bremer, the chief U.S. civilian administrator, told the soldiers it was time to read
 the president's Thanksgiving proclamation and that it was a task for the most senior official present.

"Is there anybody back there more senior than us?" he asked. That was the cue for Bush, who promptly stepped
 forward from behind a curtain, smirkingm setting off pandemonium among the troops. "I was just looking for a
 warm meal somewhere,"  he joked. "Thanks for inviting me."

 What? Inviting you?
 They said it was a surprise visit.


"He came for the sake of the elections. He never thought of the Iraqi people.
  He doesn't care about us. It was a personal visit for his own sake."
    -- Ahmed Kheiri, 24, saw the visit as a campaign tactic.

 He's right.
 As predicted here many times, Bush will run as the "military hero" president.
 But they can't use that footage when the Monkey flew onto the Lincoln.

so they needed new footage.
 Bush's campaign commercials will show how much the military loves him, and if the military
 doesn't love the next president Osama will kill us all so we have to vote for Bush.

 That's why Wesley Clark might be an easier candidate to elect.
 He takes away Bush's strongest fake issue.

 9-11 'independent' commission caves in
  No need for the truth, committee goes with White House version

  Click Here

 The independent commission charged with investigating the 9-11 attacks has backed down
 from the White House and agreed to let Bush determine what information it will released.

 The agreement provides very limited access to the Presidential Daily Briefs (PDBs), the daily
 summaries of intelligence that are the most important documents being withheld from the commission.

 Bush has refused to turn over the PDBs, although it has no legal claim of executive privilege, since the
 commission is not part of the legislative branch.  It was a PDB dated August 6, 2001, that reportedly
 informed Bush that Al Qaeda was planning terrorist attacks within the continental US using hijacked airplanes.

"I earned my money this time."

 So, the cover up continues.
 Again, the Bush boy skates without an investigation.

 After what the GOP did to an innocent president, out of pure hatred,
 the Democrats refuse to hold Bush accountable for the worst disaster in American history.

 I am so ashamed to be a Democrat today.

 FoxNews.com's Balko normally votes Republican and cast his ballot for George W. Bush in 2000
 but now says he's "90 percent certain" he won't be voting for President Bush in 2004. He further

 Porn foe arrested with prostitute

  Click  Here

 A vice chairman of a Louisville anti-pornography group was arrested Saturday night on a prostitution charge.
 Police took John W. Riddle, 65, into custody after seeing him in a car at 17th and Rowan streets with a
"known prostitute," according to the arrest report.

"Known prostitute?"
 Does that mean he was arrested with Tim Russert?

 They didn't say, "Prostitute with a Clinton-penis fixation," so maybe not.
 Don't you hate it when the writer isn't clear?

 Riddle is a vice chairman of the anti-pornography organization COMPASS. The organization, whose full name
 is Citizens of Metro for Property and Safety and Security, has been trying to stop adult bookstores and sex shops
 from opening near residential neighborhoods.  Riddle resigned his post yesterday, "and we have accepted,"
 said Barbara Davis, another vice chairman of the group.

 It's always the religio-crazies who can't live without that which they condemn to make their money.
 It's the same old song...

 Doctor Laura, spreading her legs for a camera.
 Jimmy Swaggart hiring $40 hookers in Louisiana.
 Bill Bennett gambling millions in his underwear.
 The vulgar Pigboy, hooked on hillbilly heroin.
 George W Bush, posing as a president and murdering thousands.

 ...but if Madonna and Britney kiss on TV it's a threat to our children?

 It's one constant lie from the right.
 They're in this for the money - and the finding out of the hypocrisy of their actions
 is nothing more to them than the cost of doing business. A hooker knows she'll be
 arrested twice a year - she factors that into her pricing.

 How do you think the GOP ended up with more money than me and you?

I'm George, the lobbyists president.
 Tell me what do sign.

Hi. I'm Tom Daschle.
I want to be George's friend.

 Subject: Cover-up

 Little David was in his 5th grade class when the teacher asked the children what their fathers
 did for a living. All the typical answers came up -- fireman, policeman, salesman, etc...

 David was being uncharacteristically quiet and so the teacher asked him about his father.
"My father's an exotic dancer in a gay cabaret and takes off all his clothes in front of other men.
Sometimes, if the offer's really good, he'll go out to the alley with some guy and make love with him for money."

 The teacher, obviously shaken by this statement, hurriedly set the other children to work on some coloring,
 and took Little David aside to ask him, "Is that really true about your father?"

"No," said David.
"He works for the Bush administration, but I was too embarrassed to say that in front of the other kids."

 Bush Secret Visit Took Weeks of Planning 

  Click  Here

 The world did not learn that Bush had spent 2 1/2 hours Thursday on a visit to troops
 in Baghdad until his jumbo jet was again in the air, flying back to the United States,
 where he arrived early Friday, making it back to his ranch in Texas shortly before daybreak.

 As the president was clowning for soldiers in a mess hall in Baghdad, newscasters back home
 were reporting that he was enjoying Thanksgiving dinner with his family at his ranch in Texas.
 That was what reporters had been told by White House officials.

 The B.F.E.E. has experience at slipping away to another continent for a secret rendezvous.

 Remember the October Surprise?

 Bush's press people told reporters Bush was playing tennis with some diplomat when he was secretly
 meeting with terrorists in Paris to make a deal so Red-Ink Reagan could illegally grab power in 1980,
 by having the terrorists terrorize Americans for months more. How do we know this for a fact? Bush
 could never account for his whereabouts for those days. It's amazing that he was forty days from
 becoming VP of the United States and could still disappear and no reporter but Robert Perry ever put
 two and two together.   Robert Perry was a senior investigative reporter for Newsweek (I think) but after
 he broke the TRUTH about Iran-Contra, he was let go because you don't cross the B.F.E.E. in Washington.

 Bush said he thought Americans would be understanding about the deception because....

 This is the EXACT line they'll use if they ever get caught knwoing about the 9-11 attacks,
 but since the Democrats are too shy and scared to investigate - he'll never be caught.

"The Democrats are afraid,
  just like Unka Karl said."

 AARP Faces Rebellion Within on Medicare

 Senior citizens angry over the AARP's endorsement of the Medicare bill are ripping up or burning
 their AARP membership cards and flooding the lobbying group's Internet message board with
 complaints in what could be the biggest revolt in its ranks since the 1980s.

 Many fear the Republican-backed bill approved by Congress on Tuesday will harm senior citizens,
 and they say the AARP - the nation's most influential retiree lobby, with 35 million members - sold them out.

 AARP said Wednesday that between 10,000 and 15,000 members have quit over the bill.

 Subject: GDP Figures


 About your GDP premise, the following Web site has the statistics you are looking for: www.bea.doc.gov
 I did my own calculations and came-up with the following:

    Bush - first three years GDP growth:

            As of Third Quarter 2001 - 2.3%
            As of Third Quarter 2002 - 4.0%
            As of Third Quarter 2003 - 5.3%
            (all figures are annual amounts for most recent four quarters)
    Clinton - first three years GDP growth:

            1993 - 5.1%
            1994 - 6.2%
            1995 - 4.9%

 These are my calculations - not being a national "economist" (or whatever)
 I recommend you check the mentioned site and confirm the above calculations.

 It seems interesting that Bush has had growth in GDP, yet the huge deficits are piling-up?
 Seems like somewhere along the way I heard the Republicans claim that the deficits were due to the recession?
 If GDP has been growing, why the deficit?  Is this because spending keeps going up
 (so much for the fiscally conservative Republicans . . ) and because of the tax cuts?

 Good luck with your analysis,

 San Diego, California

 Bob, good work.
 The most important thing to remember is that Clinton inherited a growing economy, and turned it white hot.
 Governor Never-elected inherited a booming economy and drunkenly drove it right into the ditch.

 Could national debt be spinning out of control?
  That's like asking, "Could Bush be stupid?"

  Click  Here

 The Medicare bill about to clear Congress is the latest example of how budget discipline
 is being given short shrift at both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue, critics say.

 By official calculations, the tax cuts and increases in benefits enacted this year alone will
 increase the national debt by more than $750 billion over the next decade, and the actual
 amount could be much larger.

"In fiscal terms, there is no doubt in my mind that this has been the most irresponsible year ever,"
 said Robert L. Bixby, executive director of the Concord Coalition, a bipartisan watchdog
 organization that favors restraining the budget deficit.

 Isn't there some way to figure out how much of that almost-trillion dollars is going
 to go directly into the pockets of the B.F.E.E.?

 Like this recent Medicare fraud that so many democrats sold out on...
 Bush didn't do that to help old people or fix a broken health care system.
 Either his family and friends own giant chucks of the people who will be rewarded
 the most or he's counting on the Republican's monopoly of the airtwaves to report
 this trillion dollar tar baby as the

 Survivor's Johnny Fairplay

 This one guy one survivor reminds me so much of Bush.  His name is Johnny something, and he's the
 most dishonest, backstabbing scumbag I've seen in a long time..  Like Bush, he calls himself what he's not.
 This unscrupulous piece of crap calls himself  "Johnny Fairplay," and he's waaaaaay past cheating.

 When he's just sitting there doing nothing, he crosses his arms with each hand doing a "V for victory."
 They asked him what the F that was about and he said, "It means fair play. I'm Johnny Fairplay."

 He's the most hated person in the contest, but I think they're keeping him around because if it gets down
 to "Fairplay" and one other person, that person will win for sure.  Rupert, the grizzly bear who got screwed
 last week has vowed to kill the little bastard with his own two hands - and trust me, he could do it..

 Survivor is like poker, in that it's your job to lie, but listen to what he did:
 It's down to five people, and Fairplay was feeling vulnerable to being voted off, so he had a trick set up.
 Thursday was the episode where the castaways get a visit from a loved one from back home.

 "Johnny Fairplay," said his visitor would either be his grandma or his best friend.
 (I don't think there's a woman in his life. I mean, who'd have this Judas Maximus in training?)

 So his friend shows up and Fairplay says, "How's Grandma?" and his friend gets an Oscar
 for his tearful performance when he said, "Johnnie, your Grandma died."

 Oh - it was tears everywhere, his fellow contestants shared his grief and they all cried and hugged.
 Johnnie sat there, crying like Bob Dole at Nixon's funeral.  It was such a terribly sad and somber scene.
 Then it came time for the "reward" of the day, which means the winner got to share the rest of the day with
 the family member while the others got a just five minute visit. "Fairplay" begged the others to let him have
 the day so he could learn all the crushing details about dear, old Grannie's last days, and they all agreed.

 As soon as "Johnnie Fairplay" and his friend got out of earshot, they started laughing at the stupid rubes who
 bought the old, "My Grandma's dead" story that the gullible simpletons fell for. They laughed and laughed,
 then joked about Fairplay's position as a sure-to-be finalist, which was closer due to his dirty trick.

 Lightning bolts were shooting off Mrs. Bart's head.
 She couldn't believe it. I kept telling her, "His Grandmother is still alive. It was all a trick,"
 and she kept correcting me, "No, she died."
 Eventually she came to understand and she was not amused.

 On the survivor newsgroup somebody posted the 7 Good Uses for this Bush wannabe:
 1. Prison-bitch for Rocky the Sodomite
 2. Ebola vaccine tester
 3. Rectal thermometer for King Kong
 4. Septic pool, free-style swimmer
 5. Warm-up comedian at Darrah's funeral home
 6. Hors d'oeuvre at a cannibal feeding frenzy
 7. Fake lottery winning gag recipient

 But hold on - it gets worse.

 As the show went on, the producers, cameramen, soundmen etc all knew the secret because they're
 the ones who helped us find out, but Jeff the Host never told the others they got scumbagged-scammed.
 The rest of the show, Johnnie Scumbag would say, "I swear of my Grandmother's grave,"
 when he wanted them to believe whatever lies he was telling.

 Mrs Bart wouldn't miss an episode of Survivor for anything, but she's extra-glued now, as I am.
 I can't wait to see what the others do to him when they find out what he did.
 Seriously, they better have a couple of NFL linemen there to hold Rupert back.

 Stephen King was expected to remain in a Maine hospital on Thanksgiving as he recovers from pneumonia, a spokesman said.

 King is conscious and in good spirits, and is expected to recover fully, his spokesman, Warren Silver, said Wednesday.
 He's likely to remain in Eastern Maine Medical Center for several days, Silver said.

 Silver told the Bangor Daily News there appears to be a connection between the pneumonia and a 1999 accident
 in which King was struck by a van and nearly killed while walking near his summer home. He suffered a punctured lung
 and a broken leg, hip and ribs in the accident.

"There is a gasoline additive called MTBE that has polluted ground water across the country.
 So naturally the Republicans have put in a provision that would limit the liability of the manufacturers
 of MTBE -- that means you can't sue them for ruining the water -- and the bill would give the
 companies up to $2 billion in federal aid.

 That means you, the users of MTBE-polluted water across the nation, will get to pay for cleaning it up.

 This is an amazing energy bill because it will not (A) reduce our dependence on foreign oil; (B) provide
 significant new energy sources; (C) create many jobs; (D) improve the grid system so we won't have
 more blackouts; (E) promote energy efficiency or conservation; or (F) do anything about global warming.

 But -- it will give at least $20 billion in subsides to fossil fuel companies. Those poor li'l oil, gas, coal and
 nuclear companies like Exxon Mobil and General Electric need our help. This is compassionate conservatism.

 I can understand the crooked GOP standing by their crooked president,
 but why did all those Democrats vote to give BIG OIL more billions?

 Charges that the secrecy and security blanketing his two-and-a-half stop at Baghdad
 airport showed that Iraq has made little progress towards stability since the US-led
 March invasion are "just not true," she insisted.

 Some critics, including the presidential campaign of retired general Wesley Clark,
 said the brevity and cloak-and-dagger nature of the visit -- which the White House
 sold as a morale-booster -- actually showed how little Washington has accomplished
 in Iraq since taking control in April.

"The trip highlights how insecure Iraq is and shows how we need to get our allies in to get
 the American face off the occupation," Clark spokesman Jamal Simmons told AFP.

"Hopefully, President Bush realized, when he looked into the faces of those soldiers,
 that he owes them a success strategy in Iraq so that we can get back to the business
 of fighting the war on terrorism," said Simmons. .

 "Have a good time today.
   It only gets worse from here."
