Leaders Gather for Reagan Funeral in D.C.
America's four living ex-presidents and dozens of current and former world leaders were
among those assembling Friday for Reagan's funeral service at Washington National Cathedral.
Meanwhile, America mustered its most magnificent tributes for a last goodbye before Reagan's
sunset burial at his presidential library near Los Angeles.
I was offended, they pretended this was November 1963.
They intentionally made this Kennedyesque, as though it were some national tragedy
that Reagan died of the old age of 93 and that photo-op trickery pisses me off.
Republicans have no idea what it's like to see a hero murdered
in his prime because our side
doesn't stoop to the levels that their side does. We've been through tragedy much too often,
and I resent these opportunistic bastards trying to hog some undeserved glory this way.
This whole week has been the biggest gaggle of lies and distortions in my 50-year memory
and this is all part of the "up is down - black is white" mentality our 1984 media has become.

General: Iraq Police Training a Flop
How 'bout them cowboys!!
Misguided U.S. training of Iraqi police contributed to the country's instability
and has delayed getting enough qualified Iraqis on the streets to ease the burden
on American forces, the head of armed forces training said Wednesday.
"It hasn't gone well. We've had almost one year
of no progress," said Army Maj. Gen. Paul D. Eaton,
who departs Iraq next week after a year of training the country's 200,000 man army and police.
"We're fucked up the Wazoo," Eaton said in an interview with The Associated Press.
Eaton, a plainspoken officer who didn't
shirk responsibility for his role in the problems,
said soldiers of Iraq's 2nd Brigade simply refsued U.S. orders to fight their countrymen.
This is not a problem.
We have a full 20 days to turn this 200,000 man army around.
I suggest we hire Bill Murray - I've seen his work - he's very, very good at this.
A Reagan-Style Funeral
A riderless jet-black horse will walk with Mr. Reagan's riding boots turned backward,
as Nancy Reagan requested. A group of F-15's will streak above Constitution Avenue
in the missing-man formation, as the family wanted.
And Mr. Reagan will be buried at his presidential
library in the Simi Valley hills in time
for the golden light of a California sunset, which he himself planned as the final image of his life.
Reagan invented the photo op.
This isn't a funeral - it's a political commercial to re-elect the Illegal Monkey.

When Bush the Smarter assumed the presidency from Reagan, he declared
that his administration would be a "kinder, gentler" administration.
Why did he do that?
Because Reagan was such a mean, harsh and
heartless bastard and Bush
wanted it on the record that America was tired of that kind of "leadership."
Kids watching today's funeral political rally might come away
with the idea
that Reagan was a decent, caring man, but that would be a false assumption.
Ten views per penny.
Nobody gives you a better deal that that.
Who should Kerry pick for his VP?
We want your feedback, and we'll print it if it's short.
Just put "VP" in the subject header.
He brought back black and white
"Calling Reagan an "all-American" insults the millions of Americans whom he deprived of his sunlight.
Reagan tried to return us to the days where we sat before black-and-white televisions, in separate
black and white neighborhoods, where white people saw only white people and black people were
represented by Buckwheat and the only time you saw lots of people of color were dead Indians in Westerns.
The Los Angeles Times said Reagan's "optimism
was catching." Tell that to black folks, the poor, unions,
people with AIDS, environmentalists, college students needing aid, Holocaust survivors, and pro-choice activists.
They all caught hell. You could hardly call the Iran-Contra arms scandal an "honest and open debate."
Subject: Military Confused by GOP Bullshit - Till They're Hit
I'm a vet of Viet Nam. A friend of
mine, 63, just seriously injured his back.
He's also a vet, of Korea and Viet Nam. He is broke and has no health insurance.
He applied for help last month at a VA hospital and they told him they had no room
at the inn - service was too long ago, etcetera etcetera.
Thank you Mr. Bush.
The young people on the front lines are
focused on the future - will the Chief give them guns,
bullets, tanks, whatever, in the shitholes they are sent to? If Bush says yes, they cheer and clap
for the Chief. I guess that's natural. They're young, and living in the moment.
After they are shot, or have a face or leg
or arm torn off, and are put out in the street after being
patched up, that's when they stop believing the Bush and Republican nonsense and lies. When they
are old, and tired, and need help from the nation they served, and get turned away - that's when
military guys start getting a more realistic sense of politics, lies, and more lies of the Republicans.
I just had a nervous breakdown after listening
to the same funereal music with a picture of
President Ray-Gun in a cowboy hat, and a string of old men seeking publicity parading across
the TV channels, each more unctuous and toadying than the last.
Mr Ray-Gun was a nut who believed in laser
beams shooting down missles, as if that were going
to save mankind from itself. He loved America but he did business with every vicious tyrant on the
planet, from Saddam Hussein to Ferdinand Marcos. He sent Don Rumsfeld over to meet Saddam
twice in 1984, and shipped the chemical weapons that may have been used on Kurds and Iranians.
His shrew of a wife consulted astrologers and tormented their children and threw their son out of the
house because he was gay, while Reagan stood by doing nothing. Now Nancy is a walking vegetable
and the children are grown up and brainwashed again and telling happy stories about their Daddy.
It makes me want to puke.
The reason Clinton had to try and bring
down the national deficit was because of Reagan, who spent
wildly and insanely on military gadgets and projects, without any consideration that later generations
would have to pay the bills. Reagan went to Berlin and said "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!"
in stentorian tones. If Reagan had real balls, he would have torn down the Wall in Berlin himself.
He would have cleaned the Commies out of Poland instead of invading Granada. What a bunch
of shit people are willing to swallow about Presidents, once they're dead.
Reagan made Army films during the ordeal
of WWII in which so many American men died, in an
all-too-familiar pattern which George W. Bush followed. Patriot who favors war, as long as somebody
else does the fighting and dying. Reagan emptied the mental hospitals in California in the 1970's to cut
expenses for the California state budget, flooding the streets and parks of California with incoherent
lunatics and addicts, about a third of whom were military veterans of Viet Nam. Row upon row of
homeless men slept under the palm trees along the Palisade in Santa Monica, overlooking the glorious
Pacific, and early morning joggers had to dodge their begging grip.
I remember, I was there.

"I got choked up three times last night. I
got choked up during Hastert.
I got choked up during Cheney, and I almost lost it when Mrs. Reagan went to the casket."
--the vulgar Pugboy, pretending he has a heart, Attribution
Did you hear the story that, seconds
before he died, Reagan opened his eyes
after days or weeks of being shut and looked at Nancy - not with clouded eyes
but with that clear Reagan sparkle - and then quietly passed away?
...do you think Peggy Noonan wrote that?
...or was it Karl Rove?
Some people can't read, like the Monkey president.
But if you can read, you'll find the right books here

Poll: Voters Say Iraq Didn't Merit War
A 53 percent majority of voters now say conditions in Iraq did not merit war.
Voters are increasingly concerned that Iraq is a quagmire America cannot escape,
and they are doubtful that a democratic government will be established there,
according to the poll published in Friday editions of the L.A. Times.
Voters' mounting worries about the war have
damaged their confidence in Bush.
Forty-four percent approve of Bush's handling of the war, compared to 51 percent in March. .

Ray Charles - a Legend
"There will never be another musician who did as much to break down the perceived walls
of musical genres as much as Ray Charles did," said music producer Quincy Jones.
Blind by age 7 and an orphan at 15, the gifted pianist and saxophonist spent his life
shattering any notion of musical categories and defying easy definition.
One of the first artists to record the "blasphemous
idea of taking gospel songs and putting
the devil's words to them," as legendary producer Jerry Wexler once said, Charles' music
spanned soul, rock 'n' roll, R&B, country, jazz, big band and blues.

Ronald Reagan Remembered Tribute Screensaver
Our Ronald Reagan Remembered Tribute screensaver is a compilation of 22 images that encapsulate
his life, his career, and his presidency. Inspired by the some of his most famous quotes and speeches,
RISS arranged the photos in this screensaver to pay tribute to his lifetime accomplishments.
The also ask for screensaver suggestions, so I sent them this:
How about one of Reagan at Bitburg Cemetary
sucking up to the Nazi dead...
Or looking smug while he props up an apartheid regime that kills thousands of its citizens...
Or giving us a straight face while double dealing with Iran and the Contras.
And get at least one image of him dressed and made up as the clown he was.
State Dept. Warned White House on Torture
The State Department warned the White House two years ago that rejecting international
standards against torture when dealing with detainees could put U.S. troops at risk in a
department memo from Feb. 2, 2002, surfaced Thursday.
The memo followed recommendations from the
Justice Department advising the president
he could suspend international treaties prohibiting torture. It warned that failing to apply the
Geneva Conventions to detainees from the war in Afghanistan would put U.S. troops at risk.
"A decision that the conventions do not apply
to the conflict in Afghanistan in which our armed forces
are engaged deprives our troops there of any claim to the protection of the convention in the event
they are captured," State Department legal adviser William H. Taft IV wrote in the 2002 memo.
Well hell, this is just common sense.
When you declare "no rules apply to our sadism," you open the door for the enemy to go crazy.
This is what happens when a crooked, never-elected deserter is appointed president over voters' wishes.

Use of Dogs to Scare Prisoners Was Authorized
U.S. intelligence ordered dog handlers in Iraq to use unmuzzled dogs to frighten and
intimidate detainees during interrogations late last year, according to sworn statements
the handlers provided to military investigators.
A military intelligence interrogator also
told investigators that two dog handlers "had a contest"
to see how many detainees they could make involuntarily urinate out of fear of the dogs.
The statements provide the clearest indication yet that intelligence personnel were deeply involved
in tactics later deemed by a U.S. Army general to be "sadistic, blatant and wanton criminal abuses."
When war and human nature meet, the outcome
is usually cruel, bloody and sadistic.
Tell a soldier he can use an unmuzzled dog to "scare" a prisoner and inevitably that dog
will be turned loose to bite a soldier, and when you're naked, that can turn uglier, still.
Is it even possible to determine the amount of damage this has done to America's reputation?
America, with their superior military, invades
your country, kidnaps and tortures your leader,
murders his children and then displays their mutilated corpses for the cameras, grabs innocent men
off the street, puts hoods over their heads, and then turns vicious Germen Shepherds dogs loose on them
while they're forced to masturbate for the conquerer's camcorders so the folks back home can have a few laughs?
Are you proud to be an American today?

Subject: Remember to keep straddling that moral fence
Remember to keep pretending that the Jews
and the Muslims are equally to blame
for all the hatred, lest your bigoted leftist readership get upset. The Jews of France
are now the target of Arab terror. So, which land are they supposed to surrender
in order to get some peace, Bart? Which part of France are the evil Zionists occupying?
What's New in Paris?
The spring 2004 fashions have arrived in the chic boutiques of Paris, and along
with 50s-style full skirts and prim lace collars, anti-Semitism is back in fashion.
In France this season, Jew-hating is all the rage - literally.
Attacks against Jews and their property have escalated to an alarming extent.
The French Jewish community (at 600,000, the second-largest Jewish population
outside of Israel) is living in a state of anxiety. Hostile acts against Jews are posted
weekly on the Web site of the Representative Council of Jewish Institutions of France
(www.crif.org), and on www.consistoire.org/incidentsfr.html, a government hate-crime
report center. Here are just a few examples from the last few weeks:
Dude, one of us is religiously insane.
I'm not straddling a goddamn thing - I want no part of anyone's religious insanity

Every Jew in the world could move to Oklahoma where they wouldn't
but for some reason they want to live with people who want them dead and you trying
to hold me responsible for their illogical choices just proves you're lying to yourself.
To me, this looks like some nutty soap opera or "Panic Room" where
the only way
the madness can continue is if the people involved continually and forever repeat the
idiotic decisions that started the problem in the first place.
Neither side wants the problem solved.
They're too busy trying to please some pretend invisible cloud
I want no part of a situation where people choose to die for silly nonsense.

"The lionizers are correct about one thing:
Reagan was one of our most influential presidents
since FDR, whose New Deal safety net he carefully disassembled. He pioneered policies now
being implemented by George W. Bush: trickle down economics, corporate deregulation,
radicalizing the courts, slithering around inconvenient laws and international treaties.
On the domestic front, he unraveled America's century-old social contract. What the poor
needed was a kick in the ass, not a handout, said a president whose wealthy patrons bought
him a house and put clothes on his wife Nancy. National parks were to be exploited for timber
and oil, not protected. The federal tax code, originally conceived to redistribute wealth from
top to bottom, was "reformed" to eradicate social justice.

Bush's American soldier body count in Iraq
833 dead American soldiers.
832 families destroyed forever - all for Bush's illegal war.
Soon it will be 900, and then 1000.
"While few wars are just wars, all are profitable
- though, of course, not to the lads and lassies
who fight and die in them. They are profitable to the military-industrial complex. The Iraq War
is a multibillion-dollar bonanza for Halliburton Inc., and a lesser bonanza for all the other
corporations scooping up the dollars, whether to supply mercenaries or to do jobs unemployed
Iraqis ought to be doing. If there were any sense of decency in the corporate world - which is to say,
if frogs could sing opera - the corporations would all cut checks to the families of those young men
and women who have been killed or maimed to provide them with their profitable contracts.
The corporate world doesn't see it that way, though, and they are cutting checks for the people
they consider their true benefactors - the politicians in Washington who made the war profits possible."

I am so disgusted by the week long Reagathon.
What a joke. One time during his presidency
for a period of about three months I stood in front of the White House with the rest of the nuts
and held up a big sign with a quote from the book of Isiah that said: "What mean ye that ye beat
my people to pieces and grind the faces of the poor?"
I hated that bastard and his whole
administration. The psycho Ollie North was responsible for me
being politically active. I still to this day cannot speak about the whole thing without being upset.
We let a demented actor with great delivery wage an illegal war, make it OK to hate again, run up
the biggest deficit ever, but, thank God, he made Americans feel good about themselves again.
As if anyone with a conscience could feel
proud of throwing away the social safety net and
murdering thousands of innocent people in Central American in the name of "freedom".
What the hell is wrong with American public?
I think it all gets back to religious insanity.
People get scared and they want to put their future in the hands of some false god.
A smooth talking actor promises things will be better if we put ourselves in his hands.
Reagan and the BFEE used the presidency for personal enrichment,
and to cover their tracks,
they dehumanize Democrats like we were Iraqi POWs. Remember, it was Reagan who used
to sneer the word, "liberal" like it was "nigger."
I blame Reagan for the poisoned atmosphere that has split the
country - he and the vulgar Pigboy.
