Quote of the Day
"Rather than working hard to create a
"This is a much more secret war. In Vietnam
it was all there on the T.V. every night, the carnage
and senseless killing that is a part of every war. In this war it is all a secret, as if there really were
no killings no grotesquely wounded as if the 700 or so dead or the thousands wounded were just
numbers with no names attached no real lives to account for and it is unpatriotic and nearly criminal
to merely mention those that have fallen. Our President and the rest of the rich who run this country,
or the outraged officers who always serve in the rear, to all those faux warrior architects, or political
pundits who have no idea what it is like to be thousands of miles away with a rifle in a foreign country
where life is cheap and always at risk, these pictures, these rapes, these tortures, these murders are
what happen in such places. And they happen in every war. It is the ugly nature of the thing that I
thought we had learned 30 years ago."

Tribunal Disagree on Saddam Handoff
Chalabi bucks the BFEE - will be pay the ultimate price?
The head of Iraq's war-crimes tribunal said Tuesday that the United States has pledged
to hand over Saddam and about 100 other suspects to Iraqi authorities before July 1 if
Iraq is ready to take them into custody. U.S. officials denied any decision had been reached.
Chalabi indicated to AP that Saddam's trial
would happen later, rather than earlier.
"Our policy is indict junior officials first so that we can build a case against Saddam," he said.
Wait, you don't have enough evidence that
Saddam was a bad guy?
Why did we invade if we need to begin to gather evidence if his guilt?
"Ragheads always try to take what's rightfully mine..."

"On October 18th 2002 Attorney General Ashcroft
came out personally, in public, asserted this rare
"state secret privilege" on everything that had to do with my case. And they cited "diplomatic relations"
and certain "foreign relations" that would be "at stake" if I were to take this issue and make it public.
And, since then, this has been acting as a gag on my case."

Inhofe 'Outraged at the outrage' in Iraq Prison Case
As others condemned the Iraqi abuse, James Inhofe (R-Pissquik) expressed outrage at the
outcry over the scandal and took aim at "humanitarian do-gooders" investigating American troops.
"I'm probably not the only one up at this table
that is more outraged by the outrage than we are
by the treatment," said Inhofe, an Oklahoma Republican and a vulgar Pigboy soundalike.
"These prisoners, you know they're not there for
traffic violations," said Inhofe.
That last sentence is correct - they've
been convicted of nothing - not even a traffic violations.
They were designated guilty of occupying the towns in which they were born. Inhofe is the
most embarrassing thing from Oklahoma. He's worse than Jesse Helms ever was for Carolina
and get this - he's on the Intelligence Committee, ...swear to Koresh..
Hey Pissquik, I have an idea.
Let me come to your house, kick and slap the crap out of you, then I'll rip your clothes off and shove a
broom handle up your ass, then let two German Shepherd dogs bite your legs and then I'll attach a dog
collar and lead your naked, bleeding ass around the neighborhood for all your friends to see.
Would you have the same opinion after that?

Protestants Want U.N. to Take Over in Iraq
The Protestant and Orthodox Christian churches said Tuesday that U.S. policy
in Iraq has become so destructive the United Nations should take over.
Separately, bishops of the United Methodist
Church, which claims Smirk and Snarl
as members, said the war has led to the "denigration of human dignity."
The Methodist Council of Bishops said it
"laments the continued warfare by the U.S.
and said Bush's premise for the war - alleged Iraqi links with al-Qaida and WMDs
"have not been verified."
Isn't it a strange thing that Ol' Bart is

did GOP members of congress crown Sun Myung Moon?
Shouldn't their first loyalty be to the flag instead of the head Moonie?
Now here are some people at the Dirksen Senate Office Building, genuflecting to Moon,

...and the coronation begins, here in the federal building...
That's not Rep. Davis bowing to Moon with

Same goatee, same hairline, and Moon's own account claims that it was him.
(An unnamed, unpictured Republican is said to have given him the robes.
Could it have been Curt Weldon, who attended the event?)

Lasting questions from this video: Who are those guys giving him a standing ovation at 14:40?
Are any of them Congressmen that you recognize? And are we a monarchy now? I'm confused.
Why are the Republicans worshipping this man as a Messiah?
Why are the press and the Democrats keeping this outrage a secret?

Imposes Export Ban Against Syria
Is Bush going to invade them, too? Does Syria have oil?
Bush on Tuesday banned all U.S. exports to Syria except for food and medicine,
ordering sanctions after long-standing complaints that the Middle Eastern nation
was supporting terrorism and undermining U.S. efforts in Iraq.
The actions of the Syrian government - including
pursuing WMDs and occupying
Lebanon - represent an "extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy
and economy of the United States," Bush said in signing an executive order imposing sanctions.
The measures follow complaints by the United
States that Syria was supporting militant
groups such as Hamas and Hezbollah and failing to stop guerrillas from crossing the border into Iraq. .
The Fatal Flaw In The 9/11 Coverup
This is one of those conspiracy theories about 9-11. But the thing is, the farther you read, you notice
the guy is building point after point that you're not able to refute. This guy is a damn skillful writer, but even so,
I should be able to poke holes in what he's saying - but I can't. He's making sense and I can't lay a glove on him.
He says things 'as fact,' without bothering to offer the link.
For instance, of the WTC collapse, he says, "We have reports from firemen of explosions at the base
of the Twin Towers BEFORE they fell, and the seismographic evidence to back up these assertions."
Dude, if you have seismographic evidence, where's the damn link?
Still, there's a dozen questions he asks that I can't answer,
the most important being
why did America's armed forces "stand down" on the day when America needed them the most?
We have Marvin Bush sitting suspiciously on the board of directors of the security company that had the contract for the Twin Towers.
We have Larry Silverstein, who conveniently
leased and insured the towers shortly before the big hits, telling officials
a relatively intact tower, which then fell identically to the two structures that were struck by airplanes, creating the impression
that that's the way all three came down.
We have billions of dollars of windfall
profits made by savvy investors in the days before 9/11, and an FBI investigation
insists nothing was amiss with these spectacular deals. Of course, we don't get the details. Only "assurances" that the trades
were not suspicious, despite patterns and results that were unprecedented in the entire history of financial trading.
Care to comment?
I'd like to hear your opinion, but - if you write - say something.
Calling me "a pro or anti-Zionist tool"
isn't making a positive contribution.
Telling me, "Bush is a bad man who likes to steal oil," tells us nothing.
Read what this guy says, and tell me where he's wrong.
Focus - address the points this guy makes.
If we put our heads together, maybe we could make some progress.

Bullet maker can't meet Army demand
Alliant Techsystems Inc., the Edina-based munitions maker that is the U.S. Army's
sole supplier of bullets, said Thursday it can't keep up with demand from the Army,
which is rising to its highest level since the Vietnam War.
Alliant made 1 billion rounds of small-caliber
ammunition last year for the Army and
will make 1.2 billion rounds this year. But the Army intends to set its annual requirement
significantly higher, possibly as high as 2 billion rounds a year, and plans to look for a
second supplier, Alliant Chief Executive Officer Daniel Murphy said.
Murphy said that the Army's ammo demand
could remain elevated for five years as
the military continues Bush's war.
Two billion bullets a year?
Are our boys that bad at aiming or are they killing 2 billion people a year?
And who knew the BFEE was in the bullet business, too?
markets hit new lows for year
They have no faith in the Bush thug and his illegal wars
In the latest sign of Wall Street jitters prompted by fears of rising interest rates
and Middle East turmoil, the Dow Jones industrials closed below 10,000
on Monday for the first time since December and hit a new low for the year.
Monday's sell-off was broad, infecting blue
chips, technology names and
small-company stocks. All three major indexes - the Dow, Nasdaq composite
and Standard & Poor's 500 - broke below their March lows and closed at
their lowest levels of 2004. Another negative: All three also closed below their
average price during the past 200 trading days.
This might require some explanation.

Subject: the Ted Rall thing
I disagree with your Rall rant In
brief, my argument goes like this:
If you believe a guy hooked up to a dialysis machine in a cave in Afghanistan was completely culpable for 9/11,
Wait - why was it necessary to include "completely"
in that phrase?
What does that mean - Osama had help?
Does anyone dispute that Osama had help?
...then you also probably believe that the
CIA has been a force for good in this country, that all wars since WWII
have been legally declared, and that the US has done nothing over the past 55 years to warrant the unmitigated
hatred of Muslims for the next 55 years. Zionists and a complicit US gov't (BFEE) were responsible, and the
9/11 towers were detonated. Why do you think they got rid of the rubble before anyone could look at it?
I don't know.
Our government is lying to us and I don't have the money or the resources to launch an investigation.
But you say the Jews were responsible?
And how about WTC #7, which wasn't even
hit and blew up anyway? Your argument totally rests on
OBL fairy tale perpetrated by the US gov't and corporate media. And if you're going to ask people who reply
to this for citations, why not provide some yourself?
Because I never made the claim.
That guy yesterday said I failed to look at "easily available reportings," but he didn't mention where they were.
Then he said, "This isn't "Conspiracy Theory"....it's now Conspiracy Fact!"
When you make those kind of pronouncements, being able to cite a source would be a good thing.
Anything I print without a link is what I believe, which could be different than what I can prove..
The OBL scenario is just as much a "conspiracy theory" as the one I've broadly outlined above.
That's not true.
Can you name a person or entity that we both respect that believes OBL was not involved?
Pat Tillman was a chump. He bought the bill of goods about Afghanistan being responsible for 9/ll.
Talk like that will get Bush elected to
This military hasn't been in civilian control
since 1948 when Truman made this country a national security state

with service since then (the "line" you were requesting). Just my take. Good luck with your site.

Among his thoughts in the book:
Woods at his best was better than Jack Nicklaus, but Woods won't

Miller believes the early dominance by Woods,

"He had four majors sitting on his table," Miller said. "It's not good

a real big dose of Johnny Miller and David Duval."

Preachers stoke anti-gay sentiment
''The pedophiles will be here tomorrow. The men who dress like women will be here. They're not going
to bring decency to Rhea County,'' said Raddish, founder and director of Capitol Hill Independent Baptist
Ministries in Washington. Raddish is a frequent speaker at churches across the country.
''The world wants to educate our children to be
tolerant of homosexuals. The homosexuals can't grow in
number unless they recruit. How do they recruit? They sodomize. That's the only way,'' Raddish said,
his voice thundering through a public address system that could be heard through most of downtown Dayton.
If Raddish lit the match, speakers who followed added gasoline to the fiery anti-gay rhetoric.
''If you think 9/11 was something, buddy, you
don't know what judgment awaits. If we don't repent and

Subject: You don't want to watch it
There are a number of web sites on the Internet
that has the whole video of Nick Berg getting his head cut off.
Having viewed the video - you don't want to watch it. I decided to watch it because it is what really happened
and it is the price of fighting a fraudulent war. But having watched it I strongly recommend that you don't.
It's enough to know that the guy was beheaded alive and that it was not a quick death. I'm still in shock as I write this.
Having said that - I think that every single
member of Congress who voted for the war and every one of those generals
in the chain of command who decided that torture was a good idea and let this happen - they should all be forced to
see the video - and see the results of what happens when you have a clueless president. Had we gone after the real
terrorists instead of Saddam this would never have happened. We are on the verge of losing this war because we have
wasted our resources fighting the wrong enemy. It's time we got out of Iraq - turn it over to the UN - and go after
Osama bin Laden. Let's go after the real terrorists who actually cut the man's head off and were behind 9-11, instead.

Killers: Beheading Avenges Prison Abuse
A video posted Tuesday on an al-Qaida-linked Web site showed the beheading
of an American civilian in Iraq and said the execution was carried out to avenge
abuses of Iraqi prisoners at Abu Ghraib prison.
First - I don't buy it - and this is getting into weeeeeeird
These nutjobs are going to do whatever they want and they can claim they did it
because Iraqis were abused, or, they could pick a different reason to kill Americans.
They didn't mind being invaded and their leader kidnapped, but being forced to
wear pink panties caused them to act this way?
Second - Berg tried to leave but our military wouldn't
Berg was turned over to U.S. officials and detained for 13 days. His father, Michael,
said his son wasn't allowed to make phone calls or contact a lawyer. On April 5,
the Bergs filed suit in federal court in Philadelphia, contending that their son was
being held illegally by the U.S. military. The next day Berg was released. He told
his parents he hadn't been mistreated. His family last heard from him April 9 but
it was unclear when and where he was abducted.
Third - are those men Iraqis?
Have you ever seen Iraqis or Al Qaeda who needed Atkins?
These are some portly dudes - does Iraq have portly dudes? Does Al Qaeda?
Would it be out of line to wonder if those guys are CIA or portly
killers hired by the
CIA to get the prison pictures off the front page and remind a sceptical electorate
that we're dealing with savage killers who must be dealt with extra-harshly and that
George W Bush is the only man for this tough job?
And before you say, "the BFEE would never
sanction a murder," let me remind you
that they are NOT going to turn power over to John Kerry if the Diebold machines
malfunction and actually allow a free and honest counting of the votes.
Right now, they have unlimited money and unlimited power.
If they can retain unlimited
money and unlimited power by beheading some nobody (apologies to the victim's family)
they'll do that without giving it a second thought.
If you're still not convinced, just break it down to its simplest
Would evil men kill to get or keep unlimited money and unlimited power?
You can't seriously entertain answering "No" to that question.

According to MSNBC and other sources, Smirk had three chances to capture Abu Musab Zarqawi,

because they would have jeopardized the Iraq invasion.
OK, right-wing loonies: tell me how CBS
and Hitlery Clinton and Ted Kennedy were responsible for
what happened to Nick Berg. Tell me how Bill Clinton's "crimes" were worse than what your "steely-eyed,

Newspaper Backs Off Letter Request
Right wing paper begs for pro-Bush letters, doesn't get them
Faced with a scarcity of letters praising the president, a newspaper in a Republican-leaning
district appealed for pro-Bush letters, then backed off the request Tuesday amid complaints of blatant politics.
Last week in an editorial, The Post-Crescent
said most of its letters had been coming from one side
(Translation: a majority hates Bush, not just the Democrats) and asked readers "to help us 'balance' things out."
"We've been getting more letters critical of Bush
than those that support him," the editorial said.
"We're not sure why, nor do we want to guess. But in today's increasingly polarized political environment,
we would prefer our offering to put forward a better sense of balance."
The money-grubbing whores hate it when the people don't buy their
So they appeal to the unbalanced to write in with reasons why America should borrow
more trillions to give tax cuts to the super rich and why we should support Bush's Iraqi quagmire.
The last great Republican said it best:
"You can fool all of the people some of the
time, and some of the people
all of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time."
