"This business of burning human beings with
napalm, of filling our nation's homes with orphans
and widows, of injecting poisonous drugs of
hate into the veins of peoples normally humane,
of sending men home from dark and bloody battlefields
physically handicapped and psychologically
deranged, cannot be reconciled with wisdom,

Bush Rule of Journalism
by Robert Parry at consortiumnews.com
"Don't take on the Bushes" is
becoming an unwritten rule in American journalism.
Reporters can make mistakes in covering other politicians
and suffer little or no consequence,
but a false step when doing a critical piece on
the Bushes is a career killer.
The latest to learn this hard lesson are
four producers at CBS, who demonstrated inadequate care
in checking out memos purportedly written by George
W. Bush's commanding officer in the Texas
Air National Guard in the early 1970s. For this
sloppiness, CBS fired the four, including Mary Mapes
who helped break last year's Abu Ghraib torture
A painful irony for the CBS producers was
that the central points of the memos - that Bush had blown off
a required flight physical and was getting favored
treatment in the National Guard - were already known
But that's never the case when the
Bushes are involved. When a story puts the Bushes in a negative light,
no leeway is granted. A different set of rules
Unlike other political figures, the Bushes
must be given the benefit of the doubt, even if an innocent
explanation stretches credulity. Also, any ambiguity
in the reporting - such as sources who are less
than pristine or evidence that isn't 100
percent clear - must be interpreted in the Bushes' favor.
Journalists or other investigators who violate
these Bush rules must expect that they are putting
their reputations and livelihoods in jeopardy.

never fought a war like this one
Every war is different, but Iraq is a real
clusterfuck from Day 1.
We should have followed and maintained the
policy towards wars that we had in 1821.
On July 4, 1821, Secretary of State (and later
President) J.Q. Adams said of America:
"She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence
of all. She will recommend the
general cause by the countenance of her voice,
and the benignant sympathy of her own example.
She well knows that by once enlisting under banners
other than her own, were they even the
banners of foreign independence, she would involve
herself beyond the power of extrication,
in all the wars of interest and intrigue, of individual
avarice, envy, ambition, which assumed
the colors and usurped the standards of freedom.
. .She might become the dictatress of the world.
She would no longer be the ruler of her own spirit."

This is indeed a big deal, no matter
what your personal religious views happen to be.

The evidence is overwhelming. Everywhere

it comes to energy policy, healthcare, education,
Social Security and especially the environment

make the world uninhabitable as fast as possible.

Subject: mail from Jitske
Dear shocked bartcop readers
It seems I have inadvertently offended you
by that bart took a part of my letter
(Note: I edit for length.)
on a controversial subject and posted it,
upon which several people wrote how
ignorant and unscientific I'm being. Bart has offered
to print my reply to you all
if I would provide a mail address so people can
mail me directly, so I give it below.
I recommend to all who have written, that
they take on an openminded, and objective
scientific attitude that wishes to consider ALL
the facts. It is just as "fundamentalist" of
Evolutionists to reject all that is not according
to Darwin out of hand as unscientific and
certainly wrong; that is dogmatic and not scientific.
Science allows free inquiry and dissent.
Therefore I ask, that if you believe Evolution
you at least consider that some of the things
they told you about it in school aren't exactly
true, and read "Shattering the Myths of Darwinism"
by Richard Milton, a British science writer and
Mensa member, for a non-creationist, scientific
discussion of the merits of the case for Evolution,
using available evidence. Then draw your own conclusions.
Be sure to send your replies directly to Jitske
and I'll be OK without a cc.
I told Jitske he's arguing against gravity, so that's my two cents.
Also, Jitske's a good guy - he's been around a long time.
Security or national security?
by David Hackworth
The Marines and the Army are stretched
well beyond the breaking point - we simply don't have
enough mud soldiers in the ready rack to win these
crucial ground campaigns. Without immediate relief,
I worry that we'll soon see a replay of what
went down during the Vietnam War: Many of our top soldiers
will hang up their rifles and hit civvy street
- where the chances of living longer and easier come with the
territory, and spouses are infinitely happier because
they're not sweating out every knock on the front door.
If this situation isn't fixed ASAP, it could
result in the finest professional ground force - active duty and

Sounds to me like Hack doesn't understand what Bush is about.
He doesn't give a damn about our soldiers.
He's just saying he does.
This is all about getting more billions into the hands of the rich,
and that means
Social Security must be "privatized" so the wolves can get their hands
I thought Hackworth knew that.

Bush said this war "had" to be fought because Saddam

That was a BIG LIE, not a mistake.
Bush lied us into this war like his daddy
lied us into the first Gulf War.
Dan Rather didn't send those men to die

Dan Rather isn't stealing $90M a day - Bush
Dan Rather isn't making a profit selling arms to

Dan rather never made a deal with terrorists to

This is life and death - you need to have
your facts straight.
Sadly they would probably try to hurt (or
worse) Peter Jennings or Dan Rather if they showed up

hold Jennings and Rather responsible for
encouraging the terrorists, the stop-loss bull

Your guys are

Not the networks - the networks are reading scripts

I dare anybody to say that's not true.
The networks don't report what Bush said - they report what
was written in Bush's prepared speech.
There's no time to get deep into this, but
Jennings and Rather work for billion dollar corporations
that echo every lie Bush tells as the truth - and
these are the same bastards who turned the country
upside down because Clinton might've had a girlfriend.
Why was it more important to chase Clinton's

Greg, the truth can't hurt you.
Things are so bad in America, we no longer debate the issues.
The Democrats and the press agree with Bush and the truth is left
outside the loop.
Whatever Bush says is what the networks broadcast.

networks all agree with him.
