Quote of the Day
"He does not believe God told him to run, or
If God never told Bush to bomb Iraq,
Maybe the reverend ought not to tell us what's
Need hits? Advertise!
"This story is a perfect demonstration of the
difference between the Swift Boat controversy
and the National Guard controversy. Both are tales from long ago and both are related to Vietnam,
but the documentary evidence in the two cases is like night and day. In the Swift Boat case,
practically every new piece of documentary evidence indicates that Kerry's accusers are lying.
Conversely, in the National Guard case, practically every new piece of documentary evidence
provides additional confirmation that the charges against Bush are true."
--Kevin Drum, National Guard Smoking Gun?" Attribution
"You think it's not true, you think it's not coming, you think "it can't happen here."
But it can, and it is, right before your eyes.
George Bush's United States is clearly in
a proto-fascist condition. Of course, there's no such thing
as direct equivalence between historical events. The same dangers never come around again -- not in
the same form nor with precisely identical content. At every point in time, a new set of elements and
circumstances coalesce to create the unique reality of that particular historical moment.
But if you take the general definition of fascism provided by its founder, Benito Mussolini -- "the merger
of corporate and state power" -- and apply it to the elements that are coalescing in America at this historical
moment, you could hardly find a more apt description of the Bush Regime."

"It's scary to think what the economy would
look like now without the tax cut."
--Whore Street Journal Editorial, on the Vital Role of Tax Cuts Attribution
Yeah, without Bush's "billions to the super rich" giveaway, we might have Clinton's economy again.
by Maureen Dowd - she hates everybody
Bush and Cheney have always used the president's father as a reverse lodestar. In 1992, the senior Bush
wooed the voters with "Message: I care.'' So this week, Cheney wooed the voters with, Message: You die.
The terrible beauty of its simplicity grows
on you. It is a sign of the dark, macho, paranoid vice president's
restraint that he didn't really take it to its emotionally satisfying conclusion: Message: Vote for us or we'll kill you.
Without Zell Miller around to out-crazy
him, and unplugged after a convention that tried to "humanize'' him with
grandchildren, horses and wifely anecdotes about his inability to dance the twist, Cheney is back as Terrifier in Chief.
He finally simply spit out what the Bush team has been more subtly trying to convey for months:
A vote for John Kerry is a vote for the terrorists.
"We heard, of course, that hell was full and
therefore Clinton will be with us for a while longer."

Subject: the simple fact is...
George Bush and his NeoCon pals have been
getting their asses kicked all over this planet
by an Arab living in a cave somewhere (supposedly) and his religiously insane jihadists.
Wish John Kerry would say it out loud; "George Bush is getting his ass kicked all over
the place by an Arab in a cave somehwere and still continues to call himself a "war president'.
That should be our message at the moment.
But Dot, that wouldn't be polite.
Kerry doesn't want to win "dirty."
"That's a source that didn't even exist 10
400,000 people make some money trading on eBay."

at lemonade stands, this economy would really be cooking."

Subject: Marguerite's Letter re: Cheney
Thanks for your letter to Cheney!
Today I'm watching the WTC Memorial. After
3 years, the grief and sadness is still very strong.
And not a g_d damned thing has been accomplished. Like Richard Clark said, "your government
has failed you". It has continued to fail us, on all fronts - both overseas and here at home. The Brown
Shirts and the State Controlled Media think they have things wrapped up, but they are wrong.
On top of their failures that led to that
terrible disaster on 9/11/01, they have done nothing except lie,
cheat, steal and deceive all Americans. After 3 years, OBL has not been captured, but instead, tens of
thousands of lives have been destroyed in IRAQ with BILLIONS of profits being made by corrupt
Iraq cronies and Cheney's Halliburton.
Now, add insult to injury, Cheney terrorizes
Americans with threats of further "pre-fabricated attacks"
on our country if we vote for the wrong man.
Marguerite, I agree 100%. We must push out
these fascist thugs and put them all in jail for life.
Charge: TREASON and CONSPIRACY against the American People.
Thanks for having the guts to express your
opinions. Its a shame no one else seems to have any left.

11 - What you ought not to know
FBI words chill the soul by Greg Palast
I pressed him to tell me exactly which investigations were spiked. None of this interview dance was easy,
requiring switching to untraceable phones. Ultimately, the insider said, "Khan Labs." At the time, our intelligence
agencies were on the trail of Pakistan's Dr. Strangelove, A.Q. Khan, who built Pakistan's bomb and was selling
its secrets to the Libyans. But once Bush and Condoleeza Rice's team took over, the source told us, agents were
forced to let a hot trail go cold. Specifically, there were limits on tracing the Saudi money behind this "Islamic bomb."
Then we made another call, this time to
an arms dealer in the Mideast. He confirmed that his partner attended a
meeting in 1995 at the 5-star Hotel Royale Monceau in Paris where, allegedly, Saudi billionaires agreed to fund
Al Qaeda fanatics. We understood it to be protection money, not really a sign of support for their attacks.
Nevertheless, rule number one of investigative reporting is "follow the money" -- but the sheiks' piggy banks were
effectively off-limits to the US agents during the Bush years. One of the men in the posh hotel's meeting of vipers
happens to have been a Bush family business associate.

Media ownership limits may depend on election
In its Friday ruling on cross-ownership, the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia refused
to reverse part of its June decision that the FCC had improperly loosened a wide array of media
ownership limits in 2003.
Tribune "has so much bet on this thing and
they're really starting to sweat," said Andrew Schwartzman,
president of the Media Access Project, which represents a group seeking strict limits on media ownership.
"There's billions of dollars sitting on the sidelines - transactions that are being held up."
Shaun Sheehan, the lobbyist for Tribune
in Washington, D.C., acknowledged that the company's appeal
was an "outside shot," but said resolution of the cross-ownership issue should not be held up along with the
other FCC media rules because diversity of news sources is inherent in the big-city markets where Tribune
seeks to own papers and TV stations.
"At the end of the day we may be vindicated -
we rather think we will be, except the day's getting awfully long," Sheehan
"There's nothing wrong with the rich owning the airwaves
as long as they're honest like FOX News..."

"Now, one of my opponent's key economic advisors
is saying they won't give
the details on how they would raise spending and lower the deficit until after the election.
Well, if they want to hold back information until the people vote, you can bet it won't be
good news for the taxpayers. But America will reject the hidden Kerry tax plan."

Subject: It's because he lied about it
I remember when the Republicans were trying
to get President Clinton kicked out of office saying,
"It's not that he had sex with that woman - it's that he lied about it." Now we get to say the same thing.
It's not that Bush has strings pulled to
get him out of Vietnam - it's that he lied about it.
It's not that he didn't show up for his national guard duty - it's that he lied about it.
It's not that they didn't find weapons of mass destruction - it's that he lied about it.
And - it's not that he got us into and unprovoked
war against the wrong enemy that has
crippled the economy and got 1000 soldiers killed - it's that he lied to get us in there.
Well - actually - it is about getting 1000 soldiers killed - not just that he lied about it.

Partners . The Real Terrorists?
by the BartCop Feminist
While this administration has shown no interest in the physical and mental well being of women in this country,
we do know that they are interested in helping wealthy corporations. The following statistics should spark attention.
According to The National Violence Against Women Survey (NVAWS), American women lose nearly 8.0 million
days of paid work each year because of violence perpetrated against them by intimate partners. This is the equivalent
of 32,114 full-time jobs each year.
In reality, instead of murdering thousands
to make 'merica safer, dubya should focus on depleting the number of
intimate relationships formed between women and men while expanding the number of children raised in orphanages
to be sure they aren't murdered by their #1 threat their parents.

This was the day the world changed
"From the moment American airliners were transformed by suicidal fanatics into missiles of mass destruction,
it was clear the world had changed. Now we know it has changed in ways most of us could not have imagined,
and mostly for the worse. The nations of the West are more afraid, less united and, most tragically, less free.
To that extent, in spite of George Bush's war against terrorism - indeed, in part, because of it - al-Qaeda has
achieved its ends...The terrorists have panicked the US and other Western nations into compromising the rule
of law and civil liberties, the principles they claim to defend. Meanwhile, ruthless governments have been
handed a neat rationalisation for repressing internal enemies. It is indeed a dreadful anniversary.
Isn't it time the Swift Boat Veterans removed the "Truth" from their name?
Schachte's colleagues at Blank Rome include not only top Bush-Cheney donors, several former Bush administration
officials, a cochairman of the 2000 Republican Convention and a cochairman of the 2004 Republican Convention,
but also the former director of the Republican National Committee's "opposition research" department.
The retired admiral renewed the Vietnam
controversy on Aug. 27 when he told journalists that Kerry's first Purple
was the unearned result of a self-inflicted scratch during a nighttime mission that received no enemy fire. Contradicting the
word of two veterans of that December 1968 mission -- both of whom said Schachte wasn't there -- Schachte charged
that Kerry had misfired a grenade launcher and suffered a minor scratch. (Schachte's account also conflicted with the
Swift Boat Veterans' own Web site, which was quickly altered to match his tale.)

Subject: "Don't bullshit a bullshitter"
I am so proud of my Dad!
A lifelong dem, he's been gently working the local country club set in a red section of PA.
On Labor day, he & the Babe hosted a
barbeque for 4 couples from the country club.
A doctor, a lawyer, the owner of a manufacturing plant and a banker, all hard-core lifelong
republicans and all vets of either WWII or Korea.
'Doc' is Catholic, but pragmatic, especially on
'choice' issues (he also has 3 wonderful uppity daughters).
'Doc' was badly wounded in WWII, and between birth control issues & the Swift Boat liars, he came
over to Dad's side a couple of weeks back.
The other 3 couples tried to give Dad &
'Doc' a hard time over Kerry til Dad asked the lawyer
how old was his grandson. The lawyer said the kid would be 15 next month, so Dad pointed out
the kid was only 3 years away from military service, and had the lawyer realized that his only grandson
could be going into the Iraq mess during the coming term of who ever is president?
That led to a 'what are we doing in Iraq,
By the end of the evening they were all still pals & golf buddies, but Dad had converted the lot of them to Kerry!
On the way out, the wife of the lawyer thanked
Dad for getting her husband to see her point of view.
Turned out the wife of the banker was a closet Kerry fan all along because she thinks Teresa Heinz Kerry
is 'fabulous', but she was afraid to say anything.
I learned early on that if you're gonna
argue with dear old Dad you better have your facts straight and lined up
like little duckies.
Or as he would phrase it "you don't bullshit a bullshitter."
Tipped him on the '60 Minutes' segment last
night with Ben Barnes.
Think Dad's going to have even more fun on the links this weekend.

When Rumsfeld was told on the morning of Sept. 11 that a second plane had hit the WTC,
he paused, then continued his morning intelligence briefing, according to the 9/11 Commission.
It wasn't until a third plane slammed into
the Pentagon that Rumsfeld jumped into action, even assisting
with rescue efforts. A few hours later, he wondered aloud to his staff whether the attack would allow
the United States to strike at Saddam Hussein, not just Osama bin Laden.
Rumsfeld's response tells us all we need
to know about what went wrong with our government's
policies in 2001. We were unprepared for the threats we faced, were slow to comprehend the meaning
of the attack, and in planning our counterattack, almost immediately began focusing again on the wrong threat.

Rescue Workers' Health Suffering
Bush lied, thousands died, thousands more wheezing
The latest health study, conducted at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, showed that nearly half
of the 1,138 people screened had problems that either began or worsened after being exposed
to the dust, airborne toxins and pollutants unleashed by the collapsed buildings. The analysis is
part of a broader study of about 12,000 people being evaluated at Mount Sinai.
The CDC said that only 21 percent of the
workers and volunteers participating in the screening program
had appropriate respiratory protection between Sept. 11 and Sept. 14, 2001, the days when the impact
of dust, diesel exhaust, pulverized cement, glass fibers and asbestos was considered the greatest.
Bush gave them his Nancy Grace guarantee that it was safe to breathe
and now they are dying. But of course, John Kerry and the Democrats refuse to make
that an issue - because it wouldn't be polite.

I'm borrowing that line from John Stewart's
The Daily Show: Mess-O-Potamia. It truly is a mess, and we
seem to be getting our butts kicked by a bunch of teenagers with RPG's and hand-made bombs. This is ridiculous,
and it's a mess that is solely of Bush's making. But where is the outrage, where is the outcry? The American people
seem to be taking the mounting U.S. casualties in stride. I guess as long as it's not your kid getting his legs blown off
over there it's O.K. Why isn't an American President being held accountable for dragging the armed forces of our nation
(those venerable armed forces that once liberated Europe from Hitler and were admired the world over) into another
no-win mess is a foreign land?
A year ago pundits all were saying that
if Americans were still fighting in Iraq in September of 2004 it was curtains
Well, they're still fighting over there, but it doesn't seem to be hurting Bush one bit. Also, throughout the Spring and Summer,
all of the polls were showing that the economy and health care were the top issues on peoples' minds. Now, all of a sudden,
Bush and Cheney have been allowed to turn the conversation around -- for obvious reasons. I find it hard to believe the Bush,
Cheney and Rove have been able to turn something around to their benefit that should have been a huge liability for Bush.
Of course, cable news is now an arm of the White House propaganda machine, so I guess that helps.
It's our bad luck that Kerry said he would've done the same thing Bush did.
