Cisneros was not honest to the agents conducting his
background check about money he had
paid a former mistress (he said the amount was
lower than it actually was).
Dishonest? Sure. Stupid? Absolutely. But he admitted it and
paid the fine ( $10,000 ). For this,
an investigation that lasts for a decade and spends over
$20 million of taxpayers' money? And
they're still investigating? It's Cisneros' bad fortune
that his particular ethical lapse
didn't involve, say, insider trading, or lying to start a war that
has killed over 1500 Americans and
maimed another 11,000. Then there'd be no need to investigate."

Court: Creditors Can't Seize IRAs
This has to anger those who want to steal every penny
The Supreme Court on Monday ruled
that creditors may not seize Individual Retirement Accounts
when people file for bankruptcy,
giving protection to a nest egg relied upon by millions of
unanimous decision sides with a bankrupt Arkansas couple fighting to
keep more than $55,000
in retirement savings. As a result,
IRAs now join pensions, 401(k)s, Social
Security and other benefits
tied to age, illness or disability
that are afforded protection under bankruptcy law.
IRAs should not be treated any
differently because the benefits are tied to people's age, the court
citing a substantial tax penalty that
is imposed for withdrawals before a person turns 60.
This new bankruptcy law is so incredibly flawed, surely
a congress with a brain (or a heart) will
come along and amend it. But for now - go figure the whore
did the right thing?
Also, do you think Bush wants to privatize Social
Security so his wealthy banking friends
can seize that if you've had a major medical/financial setback?

the crisis goes deeper still. The Silberman-Robb report, which faults
the CIA for providing “dead wrong”

to George W. Bush, who has built his
presidency on an unprecedented use of pseudo-facts over a wide

would have been no vote.”
Hersh warned that when the price
of oil reaches $68-$69 a barrel, this will be the crunch point in terms
real economic decline. If Bush wants
to move against Iran, which is pumping about 3.9 barrels a day,
he’s heading for trouble. According
to Hersh, Iran will scuttle every ship in the Straights of Hormuz
the Malaca Straits in Indonesia. It
will take months of dredging and salvaging to approach normalcy.
If oil is Bush’s top priority,
“Bush is just not behaving as someone who is managing an oil
and has already been “mismanaging oil
I agree with Hersh.
There is something bigger going on here than just oil.
If Iran is attacked by Bush, they would scuttle as many ships in
and Malaca Straits that would tie up oil for months if not years.
Of course, oil is the
side benefit for what "they" are really doing.
Brian - think like a crooked president.
If Bush attacks Iran, they'll go crazy and block shipping lanes.
That means the price of oil will shoot up to over $100 a barrel.
Where's the bad news for Bush?
He'll say he invaded "just in tiime," his whore media
will back him up while the rest of the world
will see another blatant invasion/power grab by the world's
bully with a hardon.
He'll stand before the flag and say 'The
Axil of Evil caused this," and the flag will wave and
Lee Greenwood will sing and they'll hang Michael Moore (hopefully
in effigy) and Bush's
approval ratings will go almost as high as the price of a barrel

Subject: raping young boys
will disapprove, of course, but the raping will continue for the little
girls and boys. The body, mind and
spirit rape will go on, as it has in
the past, and some of it is sexual. The “news” about pedopriests
other “orthodox” abusers isn’t new.
The sexual abuse is only part of the use of rape of body, mind and
spirit that allows the authoritarian institution to reproduce itself. The
Roman Church has a cadre of non biologically
(officially) administrators. The requirement of celibacy was instituted
some hundreds of years ago to
the administrators from having legal heirs to claim such property as
they might own and thus deprive the
organization of the ownership. “Salvation” is the product but “Sin”
keeps the sheep coming back to the fold
“Confession” keeps ‘em in line. Such a feeling of God’s Power must flow
as they watch the sheep of the
line up for fleecing! It beats shepherding since real sheep have only
one coat to give each year
these get in line every week.
priest at the altar feels the power but he is both the abused and the
abuser in a long line of victims. Few of them
“princes” of the church; what keeps THEM in line? Righteousness, of
course; blessed assurance and all that.
nuns abuse orphans and priests abuse little girls, boys, nuns and the
whole goddam population that are made to
the crap that they pass out. And some of it is sexual. The priests,
nuns, deacons, preachers, elders, bishops
the like are the reproductive organs of an authoritarian institution
that I can only compare to THE BORG.
lucked out in this flow of power and bullshit. I go to the Unitarian
church that is a community. The Unitarians are the
of the Puritans. You hear the name “Puritan” and think of an
oppressively orthodox “set” of belief and behavior
would have Borg- like descendants. The “puritains” reacted against the
“official” religions with a defensive purity but
were also inheritors of the Enlightenment and the outlet to “the
American colonies” delivered the FREEDOM that
wanted. Just check in at a local Unitarian-Universalist assembly to
check it out- go as a reporter, go as Atheist

It there is any doubt of the
Masons’ influence in this country an incident with one the U.S.
President should clarify the point.
This incident is not in most history
books. If it is, the most important facts are left out. The U.S.
Congress tried to impeach
President Andrew Johnson because he
pardoned Albert Pike, who was a General in the Southern Army when they
against the North in the Civil
the Civil War, Pike was tried for treason, found guilty, and sent to
jail. Many of the Mason brothers used their influence
to get Pike pardoned for he was the
Grand Master of the Southern District. Now President Andrew Johnson,
being a Mason,
pardoned Pike April 22, 1867, but did
not inform the press for nine months. Because of the Anti-Mason fervor
in this country,
Congress impeached President Johnson
in March 1867. During this impeachment hearing President Johnson,
Albert Pike and
General Granger had a meeting for
three hours in the White House. The General was summoned by the house
and asked about this meeting. William
Still’s book stated that the General said the following. “They
[President Johnson and Pike]
talked a great deal about Masonry.
More about that than anything else. And from what they talked about
between them ...
I understood from the conversation
that the President was [Pike’s] subordinate in Masonry (p. 123).”
Shortly thereafter, President
Johnson was given the fourth through the 32nd degrees of the Scottish
Rite Masonry in his bedroom
in the White House. Now this shows
the power and the influence of Masonry and its shows that the President
of the United States
is subordinate to the Grand Master
