Christmas weekend Dec 25-26, 2004 .....................................................Marc
Perkel on Mike Malloy on AAR Wed,
"It is Christmas time, and what would Christmas be
without the usual platoon of annoying
pettifoggers rising annually to strip Christmas
of any Christian content...Some Americans
get angry at parents who want to ban carols
because they tremble that their kids might feel
"different" and "uncomfortable" should they,
God forbid, hear Christian music sung at their school.
I feel pity. What kind of fragile religious
identity have they bequeathed their children that it should
be threatened by exposure to carols?"
--Charles Krauthammer, Attribution
He makes a good point - for the anti-religious crowd.
What kind of fragile idiot can't take a trip to the courthouse without
having the 10 Commandments
posted on the wall to reassure him that others feel the way he does about
his religious superstition?
What kind of fragile but can't send his kid to a school to learn science
and math unless they open
science and math class with a prayer celebrating the crazy superstitions
of 2,000 years of ignorance?
Bush to Add More Troops
The general gave some battlefield advice to the drunken deserter?
Powell told The Monkey and his Blair Poodle last
month that there were too few
troops in Iraq, according to people familiar with
official records of the meeting.
Powell made his assertion during one in a series
of intense discussions on Iraq between
Bush and Blair this fall. Those sessions, which
have largely been kept secret, indicate that
there was a tough debate behind closed doors as
Bush reexamined his handling of Iraq in
the wake of his stolen reelection victory. Less
than three weeks after the meeting, the Pentagon
said that it would boost the U.S. military presence
in Iraq by 12,000 troops, to 150,000.
"What does a
darkie know about war strategery?"
looming nuclear winter
This president wants total approval of his every
wish. One small problem: That's not the way the
Founding Fathers designed things. They had these
funny notions about three separate but equal
branches of government, free and open debate, and
the value of checks and balances to ward off
overreaching for power by those in the majority.
They built an entire system of government to
counteract the abuse that inevitably goes with
Yet that is precisely what the plan to do away
with judicial filibusters is: an out-and-out power grab
by the president and his congressional accomplices.
It's an underhanded scheme to kneecap the
Constitution and take away the only weapon vanquished
Democrats are left with to defend against
Bush's "ten-gallon-hat" juggernaut.
It would be impossible to overstate the importance
of this battle.
It is nothing less than a fight for the soul of
our democracy -- for what kind of country we want to live in.
This is just a further power grab by the most crooked and demented president
He's a blood-thirsty little boy who wants what he wants - and the Democrats
are afraid of him.
He's changing America in His Image and nobody seems to care or notice.
Why won't the Democrats fight back?
"When it looks bleak, when one worries how it's going

Was Jay Leno too scared to go?
Although they couldn't be home for the holidays,
Marines in Iraq received a timely Christmas gift
when David Letterman performed a Christmas Eve
edition of "The Late Show with David Letterman" here.
"How about a nice hand for Jay Leno, ladies and gentlemen," joked
Dave about his former friend.
The biggest highlights for many of the male servicemembers

to Revive Failed Judicial Nominations

Bush intends to renominate to federal judgeships
20 candidates who failed to win
Senate approval during his first term, the White
House said Thursday. The nominees
include some of the president's most contentious
choices for the federal courts.
Propelled by a wider GOP majority in the Senate,
the president appears ready to use
his second term to try to move the federal courts
to the right on such issues as forced religion,
criminalizing abortion, destroying gay rights,
ruining the environment for tremendous financial
gain and the raping of any program that involves
consumer protection from giant corporations.

The worst of it, now that we know that Bush ordered

Who cares about a woman's Constitutional rights?
Democrats are locked in an internal struggle
over whether to redefine its position
on a woman's right to choose to appeal to a broader
array of Diebold voters.
The fight is between Howard Dean, who supports
abortion rights, and Tim Roemer,
(pronounced 'reemer') an
abortion foe who argues that the party cannot rebound from
its Diebold problem unless it disregards women's
rights the way the GOP does.
Roemer is running with the encouragement Nancy
Pelosi and Harry Reid of Nevada.
If Roemer becomes Democratic chairman in the Feb.
10 vote, the Democrats would
have two anti-abortion advocates at its helm. Reid
If the Democrats throw away women's rights, it'll
be a lot easier for me to leave them
and a lot easier for the BartCop Party to take

I had no idea Harry Reid, our new Democratic leader
in the Senate, hatesd women.
How did he get that job? And how did
they manage to hide Reid's misogyny?
More surrender from the democrats.
More retreats is all we have to look forward
to from now on?

The 'evil' doctor in the haunted hotel you talked
about wasn't alone in his endeavors.
"Doctor" John Brinkley (http://pw2.netcom.com/~mikalm/brinkley.htm)
was transplanting goat glands
on men in what they quaintly called 'rejuvenation'. His
work was very popular with the Hollywood crowd of the era.
He started out in Kansas, where he also dabbled
in politics & got into the radio business (he started KFKB -
'Kansas First, Kansas Best'). Eventually
he was run out, and re-located in Del Rio, Texas, where he continued
with the goat gland surgery & radio.
Eventually, he was run out of Texas, too, but
still held a medical license in Arkansas, so he set up a practice
in Little Rock where he had more legal troubles
- including the post office, the fcc & the ama.
His radio station in Del Rio was XERA - 500,000
clear channel watts - and home to a shitload of wingnuts.
It's also was where Wolfman Jack got his start.
And speaking of quacks, Wilshire Boulevard is
also named for one - Gaylord Wilshire.
He sold electric belts that were supposed to 'pep'
you up, among other things. OTOH, he was a proud liberal.
'Dr.' Brinkley is a popular topic in broadcasting
history research papers.
Anyway, gotta go wrap some stuff & bake some
Marty, thanks for that.
If you get a chance to stay at The
Crescent Hotel in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, do it.

Gets Rare White Christmas
Mother Nature delivered a bone-chilling Christmas
to much of the nation Saturday,
and record snow shut down highways two days earlier
in the central states.
South Texas awoke to 13 inches of snow, shattering
records for the region.
The deep freeze brought Victoria, Texas, its first
white Christmas in 86 years.
"It's totally snowed over," Tawnya Evans, a serious
braintrust from the National
Weather Service in Corpus Christi, said Saturday. "It's
unusual to see that here."
"A bunch of people are excited because it's a white Christmas."
I have two nephews in Houston. One is 10 years
old, the other is 13.
They've never seen snow before.

Calls for Compassion on Christmas

to help the neediest among them by
volunteering to care for the sick, the elderly

civilians in Iraq, said, ""Many of our fellow
Americans still suffer from the effects of illness
or poverty, others fight cruel addictions, or cope with
division in their families, or grieve the loss
of a loved one," probably caused by his senseless and greedy
oil snatch, in his weekly radio address.
And over the radio waves, Bush assured U.S. troops
dying in Iraq for no reason that they are in the
thoughts and prayers of their fellow Americans
before urging reporters to "watch this drive."
