Pollsters tell Bush it's not all about Terri Schiavo
Bush on Saturday praised
Minnesota high school security guard Derrick Brun for saving
countless students by bravely confronting the teenage
gunman who shot and killed him Monday.
"Derrick's bravery cost him his life, and all
Americans honor him," Bush said in his first public
comments about Monday's shooting tragedy at the
urging of his personal political guru Karl Rove.
Some American Indians have complained that
Bush did not respond publicly to the shooting for four days.
On Friday, he was able to find time in his busy
vacatoion schedule for a a five-minute telephone call to
Floyd Jourdain Jr., chairman of the Red Lake Band
"We remember that hope leads us closer to truth,
and that in the end, even death itself will be defeated.
That is the promise of Easter morning," Bush said,
bullshitting the country in God's name - not a crime.
distorts science to shield Halliburton from pollution laws
Shame on the press for letting these blatant crimes go unreported
According to Wilson, a 30-year employee
with the EPA, the Bush administration purposely tampered with
environmental science in order to shield a lucrative
drilling technique, known as hydraulic fracturing, from all
regulations. Wilson says the technique, pioneered
by Halliburton, is harmful to drinking water supplies. Halliburton
has spent years trying to get the federal government
to exempt the technique from environmental regulations.
Wilson and environmental groups say hydraulic
fracturing can contaminate drinking water supplies with carcinogens
and is therefore required by law to be regulated
by the EPA. In addition, activists have documented incidents where
hydraulic fracturing has contaminated drinking
water supplies with hazardous chemicals.
The extra oil and gas produced each year
from hydraulic fracturing boosts Halliburton's revenues by $1.5 billion,

The Easter Bunny is hopping mad. Bryan

says he was pummeled in an unprovoked attack on

Johnson, 18, suffered a bloody nose. He

Easter Bunny to kick the little bastard's ass.
But he's not willing to forgive and forget.
Johnson told deputies that the boy hit him in the

Drop at Wendy's After Finger Found in Chili
Sales have dropped sharply at Wendy's fast

where a woman claimed she

in San Jose, Calif., planned
to search a fingerprint database on Friday to try

Capt. Bob Dixon of the Santa Clara County
coroner's office said he did not know when their
fingerprint expert might have a match. "Nobody's
claimed it yet," he said.
I'm a little suspicious about this "lady" who claimes she

Americans Criticize Bush's Silence
Native Americans across the country - including
tribal leaders, academics and rank-and-file tribe members
- voiced anger that Bush has responded to the second-deadliest
school shooting in U.S. history with silence.
Three days after 16-year-old Jeff Weise
killed nine members of his Red Lake tribe, grief-stricken American
Indians complained that the White House has offered
little in the way of sympathy for the Minnesota tribe.
"From all over the world we are getting
letters of condolence, the Red Cross has come, but the so-called
Great White Father in Washington hasn't said or
done a thing," said Clyde Bellecourt, a Chippewa Indian
who is the founder and national director of the
American Indian Movement here. "When people's children
are murdered and others are in the hospital hanging
on to life, he should be the first one to offer his condolences
If this was a white community, I don't think he'd
have any problem doing that."
White House liar Scott McClellan gave a
cavalier: "Our thoughts are with the families of those who were killed."
"I hope that he would say something," said
Victoria Grave. "It's important that there's acknowledgment
of the tragedy. It's important he sees the tribes
are out here. We need help."
The reaction to Bush's silence was particularly
bitter given his high-profile intervention for Terri Schiavo.

Terri Schiavo and Bush stopping stem cell research
Ms Schiavo's best chance of returning to
a cognitive state lies with stem-cell research. Although stem-cell
therapy is still in its infancy, a likely future
application is expected to be the replacement of damaged brain cells,
such as those that have reduced Ms Schiavo to a
vegetative state for the past 15 years. In a few years, it is possible
that Ms Schiavo may be curable. But for this to
happen, moral conservatives, including Mr Bush, would have to
revise their view that stem cells not only have
a right to life, but one that outweighs the right to a cognitive life of
sufferers from brain conditions such as hers. Having
demonstrated how much value he attaches to Ms Schiavo's
life - allowing himself to be wakened in the early
hours to sign the federal intervention into law - Mr Bush may one
day have to decide whose hopes for life are of
higher value: a woman who was in the prime of life when she was
struck down by brain damage, or a group of cells
forming part of an embryo of four or five days' existence.

Among the family standing vigil was a grieving

Will Not Try 17 G.I.'s in Prisoners' Deaths
"Culture of life" means nothing if you're brown

commanders have decided not to prosecute
17 American soldiers implicated in the deaths of
three prisoners in Iraq and Afghanistan in 2003
and 2004, according to a new accounting released
Friday by the Army.
The charges included murder, conspiracy and negligent
homicide. While none of the 17 will face
any prosecution, one received a letter of reprimand
and another was discharged after the investigations.

Smuggles anti-War Art Into Top NY Museums
A British graffiti artist who goes by the name "Banksy" hung
his own picture of a soup can
on a wall where it stayed for more than three days
earlier this month before anybody noticed.
The prank was part of a coordinated plan to infiltrate
four of New York's top museums on a single day.
The largest piece, which he smuggled into the
Brooklyn Museum, was a 2 foot by 1.5 foot oil painting of a
colonial-era admiral with a can of spray paint
in his hand and anti-war graffiti in the background.

Schiavo - Form vs. Substance
The Terri Schiavo controversy is an example of
form vs. substance when it comes to politics and religion.
The battle creates the illusion that it is about
saving the life of someone who is actually already dead.
It gives religious people the illusion that they
are in a battle for some great cause, and the illusion is the
cornerstone of faith based thinking.
In reality this is about letting a dead woman
die and respecting her choice to not endure a living death.
It's about whether an individual gets to choose
their own fate or have to endure politicians using the law
for personal political opportunity. If people of
faith and politicians wanted to pass "pro life" legislation
they wouldn't be meeting at midnight to interfere
with the death of a single individual.
Instead they would be increasing Medicare and
Medicaid so that the lives of thousands poor people
and old people can be saved. The difference between
form and substance is - do you want to really do
something to better humanity or do you want to
pretend you're don't something to better humanity?
