"No American citizen should wake up the morning
after the election and worry their vote wasn't counted.
No citizen should be denied at the polls if
they are eligible to vote. ...our citizens should never be forced
to vote on old, unaccountable and non transparent
voting machines from companies controlled by partisan activists.
Tomorrow, members of Congress will meet
to certify the results of the 2004 presidential election.
I will not be
taking part in a formal protest of the Ohio Electors."

the Media, Stupid!
Robert Parry of consortiumnews.com
The reason that negative attacks could work
so well for the Bush campaign was the preexistence of
a vast conservative media infrastructure that serves
as both an echo chamber for Republican messages
and a way to protect George W. Bush and other Republicans
Indeed, the conservative investment of tens
of billions of dollars in media over the past quarter century
may be the biggest - and least reported - money-in-politics
story of modern American history.
The conservatives' ability to saturate the airwaves
with their version of reality has changed how
millions of Americans understand the world.
So, even when the Democrats can roughly match
the Republicans in election fundraising - as occurred
in 2004 with each side spending about $1 billion
- the Republicans have a huge, built-in advantage
because the conservative media reinforces their
messages. This infrastructure also works between elections
- day-in-day-out, year-in-year-out - to keep the
Republican base engaged and the Democrats on the defensive.

Tactics Work On House Republicans
by Joe Conason
What the latest rules reversal proves is that
while Mr. DeLay may be crude, he certainly isn't stupid.
Blistered by criticism from editorial boards and
nonpartisan groups, the Republican boss realized that
he and his members are now vulnerable to the same
moral arguments they once used to oust the
Democrats from power. That danger was emphasized
by a coalition of eight citizen organizations,
ranging from Judicial Watch on the right to Public
Campaign on the left, which gave voice to public outrage.
Suddenly, as angry e-mails poured into their offices,
the people's elected representatives understood
that voting to weaken ethics rules on the first
day of the 109th Congress wouldn't look so good.
Subject: Dear John letter
I and many people poured our hearts (and pocketbooks)
out for you
in the campaign and now you say you won't protest
the Ohio electors?!?!
This is why the Republicans prevail.
You don't have the balls to confront them and
shout "ENOUGH!" or "STOP!"
to everything they represent from policy to stealing
I now feel foolish for supporting your campaign.
You need not bother asking me again for support.
If you won't help yourself why ask me?

Rally Begins: 10:00 a.m. January 6th, 2005 Lafayette
Park, across from the White House (16th & H St., NW)
Washington D.C. - Congress meets in joint session
on January 6th to certify the 2004 Presidential election.
Grassroots activists and nationally recognized
figures will join voices to inspire members of the House and
Senate to object to the certification of the November
2nd 2004 vote, forcing Congress to address the
problems in our current election system.
The candidate who was victimized can't be bothered with this.
Subject: Ramsey Clark and Saddam
I think that I get where you're coming from
on this "piss Christ" thing, but
what's with dissing Ramsey Clark because he volunteered
to defend Saddam?
You seem to have swallowed all that Republican
bullshit about Saddam lock, stock and barrel.
Was Saddam a tyrannical bastard??
.... of course, but no more so than a dozen others
that we have been in bed with.
Lou, I could be wrong about Clark, but that
would be because I've never heard/read anything good about him
I don't mind Saddam getting legal help, but why
does it have to be a liberal Democrat from America?
Somebody educate me - what's the good news about
"I'm just waiting for the first Democrat to stand
up and say, 'Release Zarqawi! He was arrested illegally.
We have no right. Where are his protections
under the Geneva Convention? He better not be tortured.'"

Boss: "I come
down more firmly in the Jon Stewart camp,"
CNN said goodbye to Tucker Carlson (R-dick)
and with him likely "Crossfire."
CNN will probably fold "Crossfire" into its other
programming, perhaps as an occasional
segment on "Inside Politics," said Jonathan Klein,
chief executive of CNN's U.S. network.
The bow-tie bastard got into a public tussle
last fall with Jon Stewart, who has been critical
of cable political programs that devolve into shoutfests.
Syewart told Crlson, "You're a dick."
"I guess I come down more firmly in the Jon Stewart
camp," Klein told The Associated Press.
I think they're killing Crossfire because
they didn't want Carville and Begalla to win every debate.
"Dear Senator Kerry, Screw you, you coward.
You're such a putz it's beyond belief.
I can't stand you. You concede before the votes
were counted and now you want the
citizenry of America to support you? You're
a pink tutu wearing Democrat who brings
nothing but shame to the party. You're dispicable."

in" letter where he begged the GOP to play fair

The reason behind all of this wonderful talk

car bombings kill 25 in Iraq
"But Iraq is doing better than we expected..."
Suicide bombers killed 21 people in attacks
on an Iraqi police academy and a checkpoint on Wednesday,
part of a campaign to derail Jan. 30 elections
which Bush's puppet vowed will go ahead.
The first bomber rammed an explosives-packed
car into the police academy south of Baghdad.
Hours later, a suicide car bomber killed six people
at a checkpoint in the northern city of Baquba.
"I voted for Bush because of the great way he's handling the war on terrorism."
Whenever some religious person says that they
do not believe in evolution...
I always point to Noah's Arc.
Religious folks believe that all the animals
on earth, all the humans, all races, all species...
all of it evolved from one boat load of critters
and 6 people. Which by the way, only happened
because their oh so loving and kind god murdered
every other living thing on the planet with a giant flood.
And before that... they believed that all animals
and humans on earth evolved from one couple,
Adam and Eve and the critters in the garden.
So yeah, all religious folks believe in evolution...
not only that, they worship it.
Subject: marijuana and god
The continued prohibition of Cannabis has nothing
to do with the 'invisible cloud being'; 'God' is obviously pro-pot:
Genesis 1:29 And God said, Behold,
I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face
of all the earth, and every tree,
in which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
Genesis 1:30 I have given every green
Genesis 9:3 Every moving
thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given
you all things.
Psalms104:14 He causeth the grass to grow for the
cattle, and herb for the service of man:
It all comes down to the republicrats real god
- money. The prison industry is one of the fastest growing sectors
of our economy, and a significant portion of the
prison population is in for botanical crimes. Decriminalization would
mean that all those DEA agents and narcotics cops
would have to get real jobs. And pharmaceutical companies
would have competition from a superior drug that
they can't charge a fortune for; tobacco and alcohol industries
would have a competing product that's superior
to theirs in every way - all of which result in less filthy lucre for
congress-critters in the form of bribes - er, "campaign
contributions". Even medical marijuana is a financial threat,
and the BFEE would rather see any number of people
suffer and die rather than have their shares of Eli-Lilly stock lose value.
Even when cannabis was first outlawed, it had
nothing to do with religion or vice, and everything to do with money.
Jack Herer, probably the worlds foremost authority
on cannabis, presents a well-researched account of the origins
of marijuana prohibition in his book 'The Emperor
Wears No Clothes". You can read that portion of his book at
his website here - http://www.jackherer.com/chapter04.html
The majority of the country, even those with
devout religious beliefs, favors medical marijuana. The problem isn't
with those who worship an invisible despot in the
sky, its those who worship power and money. And unfortunately,
that includes democrats as well as republicans.
Even our last elected President, Bill Clinton, supported the war on
some drugs. Only after leaving office did he even
hint at the idea that maybe marijuana laws are unjust. While in office
he appointed a war criminal as Drug Fuhrer - er, "czar",
a man who lied about medical marijuana and essentially
bribed tv networks with our money to include anti-marijuana
messages in tv shows. (for info on Gen. Mcaffreys
war crimes, please refer to Seymour Hersch's excellent
article on the subject, available online).

Some images deeply disturbing
Powell is deeply shocked at the tsunami devastation
It hasn't leaked out yet (don't worry it will)
but somewhere deep inside the bowels of the neo-conservative wing
among the radical born-again Christian faction
of the Bush administration there's much mounting and strong belief
that last week's devastating South Asia earthquake
and tsunami is God's way of allowing CNN, FOX News and
MSNBC to show hours and hours of uncut and uncensored
footage of benevolent uniformed U.S. personnel
providing aid and succour to masses of non-white
peoples searching for lost loved ones and grovelling for meagre
scraps of food among scenes of indescribable death,
mutilation, torment, anguish and suffering.
Not caused by uniformed U.S. personnel.
Subject: the stock market
You've got the right idea.
I hate to admit it, but I'm a working economist
and financial analyst nearing retirement.
Never made much and never had much, but the best
investment I made in 2004 was investing

the rest of my US stock on November 4th.
I'm getting ready to buy some oil and energy
stock, counting on Bush to continue to fuck up
the entire world, our country's economy, and our
That's my liberal-ass prediction and I'm putting

"Believe it or not, the new William Shatner record
is supposed to be really good, in a goofy way..."
-- former professional music critic ThaneOfFascistan in
the bartcop chat room
DKS's comments about Marijuana being a gateway
drug isn't too far off base and let me explain why.
As a teen in the 70s I was bombarded with information
telling me of the horrors that would befall me if I smoked pot.
I smoked it anyway and found out that it didn't
do any of the horrible things we were told and because of the lie that
was pushed on us I just assumed that the propaganda
about Cocaine, Heroin and any other number of drugs was false also.
Once kids find out that all the hype about Pot
is wrong it opens up the gateway to finding out if everything told to us
about drugs is a lie.
Maria, great point.
Lying to your kids tells them you're either a liar or an idiot.

'Fear Factor' Sued for Rat-Eating Episode
Watching contestants eat dead rats on NBC's
gross-out stunt show "Fear Factor" so disgusted
a Cleveland man that he has sued NBC for $2.5 million,
saying he could not stomach what he saw.
In a lawsuit filed in Cleveland, paralegal Austin
Aitken said, "To have the individuals on the show eat
(yes) and drink dead rats was crazy and from a
viewer's point of view made me throw-up as well as
another in the house at the same time. NBC
is sending the wrong message to its TV watchers that cash
can make or have people do just about anything
beyond reasoning (sic) and in most cases against their will."
I like this.
NBC's president should have to resign over this show.
America should change its name to "Whore nation," because
some people would do anything to be on TV.
Look at Tim Russert, who sold his dignity years ago to be the top Nazi
whore on the "Fear Factor" network.
Disavows Torture Tactics
To trick the Dems into confirming him...
Attorney general nominee Alberto Gonzales drew
scorching criticism from Senate Democrats
on Thursday for his role in Bush administration
policies on the treatment of terror suspects.
He repudiated torture tactics and vowed at a contentious
confirmation hearing to abide by
international treaties on prisoner rights - and
the Democrats are expected to buy this horseshit?
"I will no longer represent only the White House. I will
represent the United States of America
and its people. I understand the difference between
the two roles," he lied.
"America's troops and citizens are at greater risk" because
of administration policies that are
"tantamount to torture," said Sen. Patrick Leahy,
Bush's toy rubber stamp.
This is one of the uglist handjobs in the history
all know the gelding Democrats are going to confirm Mr Torture.
I would bet $1000 on it, and I don't have $1000
The Democrats are handjobbing you and me and
the entire nation with this horseshit charade.
They're going to
confirm Gonzales and nothing will
stop them, but for the idiots like you and me
who are halfway paying attention, they're pretending
to "grill" Gonzales but it's just a ruse
to make us think they're doing their jobs.
are lying to protect Bush and it makes me f-ing sick.
The democrats are lying to us like they were
Bush's prison bitches.
For a pack of Camel no-filters, they're going to
confirm Mr. Torture.
If the senate Democrats would reject Gonzales,
I would gain a shred of respect for them.
But that won't happen.
They don't care that Bush lied us into a bloody
war just to enrich his selfish ass.
They don't care that Bush has killed 1342 soldiers.
They don't care that Bush has killed 100,000 cilvilians
They don't care that Bush has plans to invade Iran
and Syria and who the fuck knows who else.
I'm so tired of being handjobbed by the
I'm so tired of hearing the senate Democrats swear they're
fighting for you and me while they blow Bush.

in Iraq continues unabated
by Gene Lyons
Sometimes, [soldiers] say, they fire on vehicles
encroaching with [in] 30 metres,
sometimes they fire at 20 metres. "The Economist
account quotes a" bullish lieutenant"
as saying, "If anyone gets too close to us, we
[bleeping] waste them. It's kind of a
shame, because it means we've killed a lot of innocent
people.... It gets to the point
where you can't wait to see guys with guns, so
you start shooting everybody."
Before his impending retirement, maybe Colin Powell
should try this simple argument
on Bush: Regardless of good intentions, to the
besieged Iraqis we Americans are
becoming the tsunami.
Marijuana was made illegal in the 1930's through
the corporate efforts of Dupont.
Dupont had just invented nylon and wanted the
US Navy rope contract. But rope at the time was made
with the much cheaper hemp. So Dupont went after
hemp by attacking marijuana. Not only did they engage
in intensive government lobbying, but they also
launched a massive publicity attack against marijuana.
Dupont produced and distributed the film "Reefer
Madness" in order to scare public opinion against pot.
It all worked. Marijauna was made illegal and
Dupont got its rope contract. What's more interesting is the US is
the only country in the world to not make use of
industrial hemp, whose uses range from paper pulp to medicine.
When a mistake is not admitted it becomes a
Obviously this country's drug laws are full of
mistakes especially the ones regulating marijuana.
