Quote of the Day
"Do I think we're going to get bashed? Sure."
"Some of them don't like the fact that I opposed

--John Kerry, on the Swift Boat Liars Attribution
of Silence That Should Live in Infamy:
Bush sat in that classroom until his handlers could figure out what to do with him
We say, "show me," and what does this video show us?
* That Bush is a pawn and unable to act
decisively until his handlers tell him what to do and hand him a script.
* That he put at risk the children and adults at Booker School by staying in the classroom, even though he might,
the White House claimed, have been a target of the terrorist attacks that day.
* That he calmly listened to a pet goat story and complimented the children on their reading skills as Americans
and foreigners burned alive or jumped to their deaths from the twin towers.
But his fellow Republicans, the media and the Democrats do not
Some go so far (David Dreier, R-CA) to say they would have acted the exact same way.
Will Kerry ask Bush why he acted that way during their debate?
Would Kerry, who thirty years ago took his Swift Boat towards enemy fire to rescue a soldier,
have frozen in fear the way George W. Bush did when his country needed a Commander in Chief?
"I hate America for this. It doesn't matter

their regular rates, to consumers seeking shelter from the storm.

Bush Is Squeezing Middle Class
President Bush is now barnstorming the country claiming his record shows that he cares
about America's middle class. On everything from taxes to health care to workers wages,
the President says he has fought for average Americans. But a new comprehensive report
shows that in almost every key economic area, he has actually gone to bat for his wealthiest
contributors, at everyone else's expense.

Killing Sparks Homeless Backlash
Tavern owner beaten to death called "the aggressor" by Tulsa D.A.
Anger over a homeless man's fatal beating of a brass-knuckle-wielding bar owner is boiling over in Tulsa,
How does one define "boiling over?" That's an intentionally vague term used to guide the reader's opinion.

A man is dead - it's hardly the homeless "presence" that's the issue.

Reading that flammable term makes the reader think there were casualties.

are warning of vigilante justice.
A wanted poster with a picture of Terry
Badgewell, the man who used a length of pipe
to kill Deadtown Tavern owner Shawn Howard, was put up in a liquor store downtown.
That makes one, possibly two people could form this 'loosely organized" campaign.
Meanwhile, Tulsa's homeless are feeling
Objection - assumes facts not in evidence.
Where is the evidence the homeless are suffering?
Where is the heat the homeless are feeling? And from whom?
Why is this writer skewing this story to make the victim, who is dead, into the guilty party?
Terry Badgewell has convictions for burglary, auto theft,
running a roadblock and eluding police. He has been
arrested for receiving stolen property, disturbing the peace
and domestic violence (seriously biting his sister) and he
apparently skipped Cherokee Country on those charges.
man he killed, with blows from behind, had no record,
yet the DA decided not to pursue the investigation.
Michael Cypert, 31, who usually stays at
a Salvation Army shelter near downtown,
said patrons of the Deadtown Tavern chased him away from the area during a memorial
for Howard a few days after his June 25 death.
If the man usually stays at the SA, why was he at the deceased's tavern during his
memorial after he was murdered by a homeless man "in self defense?" To hear this
writer tell the tale, the drunken Deadtown mob torched the defenseless Salvation Army.
Do you sense the obvious steer-job going on here?
Police have warned homeless people to stay
away from the bar,
That's pretty good advice - at least until the shock of the man's murder wears off...
and Cypert said
he has seen people
Excuse me, the man has made a claim, You can't say what he saw.
Stop "fixing" the story and stick to the facts - can you do that?
"Fuck the homeless" T-shirts handed out by bar owners.
Which bar owners? You want to condemn "bar owners" but, in your McCarthyite way,
you don't bother to name them? That makes them all guilty, right?
Shame on those selfish bar owners who want to avoid be murdered.
"I think it's crazy to say 'Fuck the homeless.'
I don't think it's right," he said.
Notice how semi-skillfully this FOX News-ish writer has skewed this story.
You're either a "fuck the homeless" kind of person or you're not. Anyone who
wants justice for the tavern owner is now a "fuck the homeless" person?
This isn't journalism - this is a handjob with bad intentions.
We just had a possibly innocent man beaten
to death with a f-ing pipe. It was a
legal beating because the dead man (or his friend, that's not clear) had brass knuckles?
Obviously the killer had a pipe - that's not considered being "armed?"
If the tavern owner had beaten the homeless
man to death, would the Tulsa DA have said,
"That's a legal killing because the homeless man had a pipe?" Somehow, I doubt it.
"Most of the people I see around here are either
mentally ill or have family problems.
We don't panhandle over there or anything."
Gee, maybe that's why the tavern owner was semi-armed? Because, according to the man
the writer trusts explicitly, the area is full of mentally ill homeless people with family problems?
Badgewell (the killer) left Tulsa after
the wanted sign and T-shirts surfaced, said
Steve Hjelm. He won't say where Badgewell has gone for fear of retribution.
"We took it as a kind of vigilante effort," Hjelm said.
Again, the killer's attorney makes a claim that this writer elevates to fact.
Why is this story written and shaped to make the dead man guilty?
What's in it for this writer to portray the dead man as the aggressor?
The Howard family and fellow bar owners
were outraged, saying Howard was
chased down and bashed repeatedly in the back of the head.
How do your defend yourself by bashing in the back of a man's
To bash in the back of a man's head, you either have to be behind him
or standing over him as he lay face down on the ground.
I don't know a thing about this case. They say every story has two sides,
but this writer apparently disagrees with that. There's no attempt to explain
the "back of the head bashing," and somehow, this horriibly-slanted, one-sided
story has made national Yahoo News? How did the Tulsa DA get this kind of press?
How/why did that happen?
Clearly, there's an agenda here.
The coroner's report either confirmed or denied the "back of the head bashing."
Was the writer too busy to confirm that before his deadline?
In Tulsa, a rich person can buy their way out of a murder.
But how does a homeless person do that?
If you were haunted by "Fahrenheit 9/11",
will give you nightmares.

Kerry has passed up several chances to distance himself from the Iraqi debacle. But instead he has left himself
wide open to Bush's ridicule. What's he got left -- stem-cell research? Bush had a field day smirking and mocking
his political rival and telling the nation that he was "right" to attack Iraq, absence of weapons notwithstanding.
Bush has sarcastically told cheering Republican rallies, 'After months of questioning my motives and even my
credibility, Sen. Kerry now agrees with me.'"
Helen agrees, Kerry gave away his biggest issue and gave
Nader millions of anti-war votes.
What on Earth could cause Kerry to give away his biggest issue - to get mocked by the Giggling Murderer?

I just saw a film clip of Christie Todd Whitman on Jon Stewart
a while back.
She said she knew Kerry well, and that her husband spent a Christmas

This was long, long before the Swift Boat Liars made their cheap-ass
so I wonder why Mr Whitman doesn't come out and tell us what he knows?
Could it be that Kerry was a big hero to Whitman, but as a Repub
he's not allowed to speak the truth if it would help John Kerry?
Can we assume if Whitman knew of Kerry's "fakery" and "cowardice,"
come forward to help the never-elected Monkey's crusade against Muslims, right?.
Subject: Your marijuana interdiction/taxation numbers
Your numbers on the Canadian marijuana busts need some refiggering.
The article you cited claims 5% of the illegal marijuana in the USA comes from Canada.
Going with your 10% interdiction estimate
-- which I personally think is high -- the 48000 lbs
of pot would be a small part of ~500000 lbs of imported Canadian buddage. That, in turn,
constitutes 5% of the marijuana consumed in the USA. However, the article also states that
90% of the 880-2200 TONS of marijuana grown in Canada winds up in the USA, so the
article's number is somewhere between 800 and 2000 TONS (i.e. between 1,600,000 and
4,000,000 lbs). That puts the interdiction rate between 3% and 1.2%!!!
In other words, according to the article,
Americans are consuming between 32,000,000
and 80,000,000 lbs of marijuana annually.
At $3,000/lb (a lowball pricetag), that
represents between $100 BILLION and $240
BILLION of UNTAXED UNREGULATED trade in marijuana alone. If only 10% of that
money were collected in tariffs, we'd be talking an additional $10-$25 BILLION in revenue
-- that's enough to pay for a lot of addiction therapy for those who really need it.
Also, let's add in the money the DEA spends
on pot busts. And the money we spend on
imprisoning marijuana users. Heck, we'll more than make up for the billion $$ or so in assets
the cops grab annually through civil forfeiture abuses. Marijuana legalization is a WINNER.
JG, I believe your numbers are more accurate than mine.

Cannabis may block growth of brain cancer
Scientists have shown that cannabinoids - the chemicals responsible for the
drug's "high" - deter the growth of blood vessels which feed the tumour.
They appear to prevent genes making a protein
called VEGF (vascular
endothelial growth factor) that stimulates the sprouting of blood vessels.
Cutting off tumours' blood supply is one
of the latest anti-cancer strategies
being explored by scientists. In studies cannabinoids significantly reduced
the activity of VEGF in laboratory mice.
They also lowered VEGF levels in tumour
tissue samples taken from two
patients with glioblastoma multiforme, the most lethal brain tumour type.
