Bartcop Manor had a mold-inducing flood that is pushing us out of the

by Seymour Hersch of The New Yorker
Despite the deteriorating security situation
in Iraq, the Bush Administration has not reconsidered its
basic long-range policy goal in the Middle East:
the establishment of democracy throughout the region.
Bushâs reëlection is regarded within
the Administration as evidence of Americaâs support for his decision
to go to war. It has reaffirmed the position of
the neoconservatives in the Pentagonâs civilian leadership
who advocated the invasion. According to a former
high-level intelligence official, Rumsfeld met with the
Joint Chiefs of Staff shortly after the election
and told them, in essence, that the naysayers had been heard
and the American people did not accept their message.
Rumsfeld added that America was committed to
staying in Iraq and that there would be no second-guessing.
...the former high-level intelligence official
told me. ãNext, weâre going to have the Iranian campaign."
According to Bush, Kerry and the networks, this is what
America voted for last November. To wipe out
"terrorism," which now includes anybody angry with the American invasion of a
backwards, helpless country,
Bush will have to kill over a hundred million people.
Re-read that last line.
Is this a reason for the elected Gelding Democrats to finally stand
up and fight?
Of course not - they're wasiting for Bush to do something outrageous.
"[Iraq] is not a numbers game."
-- Rumsfeld, saying what you say when the numbers are too
horrible to comprehend.
Got Bush Money to Lie
His policies are all failure - that's why they have to buy support
Following on the heels of the Armstrong Williams
fiasco for which no price was ever paid,
syndicated columnist Maggie Gallagher has received
a $21,500 contract from Bush a promote
his political pandering of calling for the hating
of gay people who he's never even met.
"Did I violate journalistic ethics by not disclosing
it?" Gallagher asked another whore,
the WaHoPo's Howard Kurtz, who disclosed the arrangement. "I
don't know. You tell me."
Can you believe she used "journalistic" and "ethics" in the same sentence?
If you take money to lie about things you don't believe, you're a whore,
not a journalist.
How many other whores are out there - enjoying their ill-gotten payoffs
When they get caught, they're going to say, "I'm
sorry," but they're not sorry YET!
They will fake being sorry when they get caught - so who are these other whores?

Blowing up polling places "not a problem?"
Baghdad - Eleven Iraqis and one U.S. Marine were
killed Thursday as insurgents clashed with U.S. troops

The Marine was killed and five others were injured

Taken Over by a Cult
About what's going on in terms of the President
is that as virtuous as I feel, you know, at The New Yorker,
writing an alternative history more or less of
what's been going on in the last three years, George Bush feels
just as virtuous in what he is doing. He is absolutely
committed -- I don't know whether he thinks he's doing
God's will or what his father didn't do, or whether
it's some mandate from -- you know, I just don't know, but
George Bush thinks this is the right thing. He
is going to continue doing what he has been doing in Iraq.
He's going to expand it, I think, if he can. I
think that the number of body bags that come back will make no
difference to him. The body bags are rolling in.
It makes no difference to him, because he will see it as a price
he has to pay to put America where he thinks it
should be. So, he's inured in a very strange way to people like me,
to the politicians, most of them who are too cowardly
anyway to do much. So, the day-to-day anxiety that all of
us have, and believe me, though he got 58 million
votes, many of people who voted for him weren't voting for
continued warfare, but I think that's what we're
going to have.

wants boxing gloves on chickens
Only in Oklahoma can people be this stupid
Oklahoma City -- A state senator has a plan for
saving Oklahoma's gamefowl industry now
that cockfighters are legally prohibited from pitting
birds fitted with razor-like spurs.
State Sen. Frank Shurden, a longtime defender
of cockfighting, is suggesting that roosters be given
little boxing gloves so they can fight without
bloodshed. The proposal is in a bill the Democrat has
introduced for the legislative session that begins
"Who's going to object to chickens fighting like humans
do? Everybody wins," Sen. Frank Shurden said.
Oklahoma voters banned cockfighting in 2002. The
practice is still legal in Louisiana and New Mexico.
Note: A cock-loving judge ruled that the election wasn't valid,
so cock-fighting is still legal.

Based upon their performances in public office,
two worse choices than
Gonzales and Rice can hardly be imagined. Both
appear to place ambition
and personal loyalty above all competing values,
beginning with truth.
Theyâre less public servants than courtiers
to the House of Bush.
Meanwhile, with the notable exceptions of Sens.
Barbara Boxer and John
Kerry, Democrats appear too fearful to express
lest somebody like Rush Limbaugh call them hypocrites
Then thereâs Dr. Rice, as she likes being
called, a dead giveaway. During
the propaganda buildup to the Iraqi war, nobody
was more dogmatic
about Saddam Husseinâs nuclear arsenal. "We
donât want the smoking
gun to be a mushroom cloud," she warned.
After Bush was criticized for including previously
about Saddamâs nonexistent nuclear weapons
in a speech, a White House
spokesman alibied that neither he nor Rice had
read the entire 90-page
National Intelligence Estimate about Iraqi weapons
of mass destruction.
A Stanford sophomore, where Rice was provost, would
be failed for that.
Rice was barely criticized.

Subject: under 21 drinking
This happened within the span of our lives.
In the 1970's, the federal government relaxed
their highway funding rules to allow the states
to experiment with legalizing drinking at age 18. My
memory gets a bit fuzzy here - probably
because it happened after I had turned 21 - but
I do seem to recall that almost every state
passed laws making the legal drinking (alcohol
- of course) age 18 years.
Before the 1980's, the feds changed its rules
and all states eventually repealed their laws in
response to a statistically significant jump in
highway traffic accident deaths among 18 to 21 drivers.
Santa Fe Vic
Vic, I think you have that backwards.
Drinking laws were state options until the feds blackmailed the states
with highway money.
My cousin Bud went to Memphis State in 1971 because he could drink there
as a minor.
I'm not for underage drinking, but I'm also not for underage dying.
It's wrong that a man can spend 1000 days in combat for his country
and then be denied
a beer with his food at a Pizza Hut because he's not old enough to
make wise decisions.
Dissent On Rice and Gonzales
by Joe Conason
To vote against Ms. Rice and Mr. Gonzales is
a sad duty, and a responsibility that is not
without risk for the same reasons. He grew up in
an impoverished barrio, while she grew up
in racist Mississippi. Their life stories and personal
accomplishments in overcoming those
obstacles are inspiring; moreover, she will be
the first black woman to serve in her new office,
and he will be the first Hispanic to serve in his.
So Senators who insist on assessing their behavior
in office and the content of their character
find themselves accused, by unscrupulous partisans,
of discriminating against these nominees on
the basis of race. When not arraigned on bogus
charges of racism, the dissenting Senators are
instead charged with "obstructionism," because
they have refused to rubber-stamp Bushâs choices.
Too bad: The Constitutional process under way
is known as confirmation, not celebration.
And in both of these cases, despite their heart-warming
biographies, there is more to
deprecate than celebrate.

Second, I'll tell you what. If you are all

I'll allow you the torture. But if your victim
turns out to be innocent, I insist you pay the consequences. I'm talking
about serious prison time for wrongful imprisonment,
assault and battery, and attempted murder (because you know
that torture can cause death). Then when

was only spending the night at Aunt Dorothy's,
she can come to prison to visit you for the next 25 years.

Begins in Brazil

There is a saying in Brazil, or at least in the
cities with big Carnaval celebrations, that the year doesnât really
begin until Carnaval. This appears to be true.
Most of Recife is on vacation right now, the schools are closed,
and the streets are deserted on the weekends. However,
there is one other date that could really start the year,
and it was Sunday, January 16. The day the state
soccer championships began.
It was a hot summer day, and the Ilha do Retiro
wasnât quite packed ö several years of disappointments will do
ö but it was close enough to packed. The cheap
seats behind the goals were so crowded that people, like me, were
sitting on the stairs. Most of the twenty thousand
in attendance were wearing red, black, and yellow. The game
started well, Sport controlled the ball and kept
the pressure on until, in the twenty-fifth minute, Petrolina countered
and scored a lucky goal against the flow of the
game. Twenty-eight years of being a Redskins, Orioles, Bullets, and
Caps fan came to the surface in my mind as I asked
myself (conveniently forgetting the first Gibbs and Weaver eras),
"Why do my teams always, always disappoint me?"

Money, Media & the
Mess in America
by Robert Parry at consortiumnews.com
Sometime after 2009, when historians pick through
the wreckage left behind by George W. Bushâs
administration, they will have to come to grips
with the role played by the professional conservative media infrastructure.
Indeed, it will be hard to comprehend how Bush
got two terms as President, ran up a massive debt, and misled
the country into at least one disastrous war ö without
taking into account the extraordinary influence of the
conservative media, from Fox News to Rush Limbaugh,
from the Washington Times to the Weekly Standard.
Recently, itâs been revealed, too, that
the Bush administration paid conservative pundits Armstrong Williams and
Maggie Gallagher while they promoted White House
policies. Even fellow conservatives have criticized those payments,
but the truth is that the ethical line separating
conservative ãjournalismä from government propaganda has long since
been wiped away.
For years now, thereâs been little meaningful
distinction between the Republican Party and the conservative media machine.
In 1982, for instance, South Korean theocrat Sun
Myung Moon established the Washington Times as little more than
a propaganda organ for the Reagan-Bush administration.
In 1994, radio talk show host Limbaugh was made an
honorary member of the new Republican House majority.
