Charles pushes wedding back a day

--Newt, when asked about a run for the White House in
a passion party at your house!
Subject: the pope's real
other legacy of John Paul II I don’t see the media talking
about: how his medieval policies
on birth control perpetuate a system of poverty and disease in poor Catholic
The one thing that goes with poverty the world over
is the inability of women to control the number of children they have.
For twenty five years progressive Catholics like my wife and I have
tried to hang on to an old faith because of community and the love it brought
to many. But the more I read and the further to the right this vatican circle-your-wagons
went the more we became disillusioned. My studies have lead me to the writngs
of the Jesus seminar in California. The old and new "testaments should be abandoned
as the pinnacle of reverence. They are fictions and political statements made
to protect an all male hierarchy. Is it not interesting how W. used his appeal
to most Vatican efforts to his political advantage.
Right wing evangelism has been used by powerful interests in this country
to destroy democracy. This head pastor, with his strange and tragic upbringing
was not what "Christianity" needed
to break from its two thousand year shackles. The Rabbi Yeshua never meant for
this to happen to religion. Joanna Manning is right about this Polish bishop
in her book "Take Back The Truth: Confronting
Papal Power and The Religious Right".
After his quest to destroy Communism he goes after secular humanism and feminism???
What a shame to have a deranged pope to take us into the 21st century. How easily
he fit into the power structures of the world.
would certainly have handed over Jesus to Texas governor W. Bush to be
electrocuted. W. would not have recognized him. I know Bart
for some sane commentary about the Pope. My mind is boggling at
the news coverage he's getting.
He interfered in the internal affairs of foreign nations (all the
while being under no democratic control) while refusing
to acknowledge any responsibility on the part of the church for the crimes
committed by its priests.
And he was such a friend to women, the poor, etc.
to know someone in the media was paying attention over all those
i've been waiting for someone to finally come out and

Report on 1980 October Surprise

which was holding 52
Americans hostage. The lingering crisis sapped Jimmy Carter's political
strength and cleared the way for
Ronald Reagan's historic victory. The hostages were freed immediately after
Reagan became President.
Russian assistance was requested on Oct. 21, 1992, by the House task force
Rep. Lee Hamilton, D-Ind. The Russian
report asserted that the allegations of secret Republican
negotiations with Iran were true.
But the Russian report was never released by the task force,
whose public findings reached the opposite conclusion.
Lee Hamilton is a traitor who
has been helping the BFEE commit crimes for 25 years.
Why do you think Bush made him the top
democrat on the 9-11 Commission?
So Hamilton could once again lie to the
public and cover up Bush's crimes.

lie from a man who can't stop lying
political aide said Monday it won't be possible for him to run for governor
or challenge Hillary's re-election bid next
"Right now, with all the commitments he has
here ... I just see the commitment as too great
to undertake any sort of run within the next year," aide Anthony Carbonetti
told The whore AP.
But, Carbonetti cautioned: "Rudy
is someone who never says never."
First, if Rudy ran against Hillary you know what the result would be?
Second, Rudy might be someone who "never says never," but his
party says "never" all the time.
Rudy can't run for office anywhere except New York because he's pro-choice,
he's anti-guns and he
doesn't think gays are some horseshit "abomination
from God" like his monkey party leaders.
Rudy can't run because he's a little too sane for the 19th Century Republican
Press Club welcomes...Jeff Gannon?
Why does Bush's hooker get a press
pass? What does he have on the BFEE?
Press Club's Web site, however, does not tout the event as focusing on Gannon
but rather the differences between "bloggers" and "journalists." John
Americablog, which first reported
the Press Club event, wrote: 'What is GannonGuckert
doing there at all? Like he's an
expert on the difference between blogging and journalism?
How so? He thinks journalism means
parroting press releases and transcripts. As for blogging,
again, he started a so-called blog
3 weeks ago and now he's representative of all bloggers?'"

last election, I’ll admit, was the first election I’ve voted in.
I’ve never trusted politics or politicians,

shift of support was then put

Bono discovered another facet.
"He had mischief in his eyes as well as godliness," he says. "If the Catholic
Church is the glam rock of religion,
this guy was just the most vivid of performers."
While they were seated together, Bono noticed the pope staring at him.
Concerned that his powder-blue "fly shades"
were an offensive accessory, Bono removed them. When Bono approached, the
pope continued eyeing the sunglasses.
"So I asked if he wanted them," Bono said. "He not only nodded, but he put them
on and made the wickedest smile.
It was a great moment for a lot of reasons, and one of them was, I thought,
'We'll be on the front page of every newspaper.'
I don't mean me, but our issues. I knew what a picture of the pope in sunglasses
was going to do."
Many photos were taken. None surfaced. "The Vatican courtiers didn't
have the same sense of humor as the pontiff,"
Bono said. "They could imagine the T-shirts. We'll never see those

Law #4 - Nothing is easy
tell ya, I'm OK now but yesterday I was in rough shape.
One of the cats had a problem, so
I took her to the vet.
I had to grab the cat early, because
they somehow know when it's vet time.
We get to the vet and I'm standing there 20 minutes waiting for some candy
to acknowledge that I'm there. Finally, one shows up and says they
and everything is running behind so things will take a little longer.
100 minutes later, we're done (It was only $225) but I still need to visit
another vet because this one has a "no compete" clause to get referrals
so here I go to the other side of town to wait on yet another vet.
(BTW, if the vet's making $200 an hour, and has people waiting days to get
why can't the vet hire more candy stripers so we can get back to our jobs?)
By now it's 4 PM and I'm finally headed home when I get stuck in the mother
of all hail storms.
I've been in hailstorms before (this is Oklahoma) but never one like this.
It sounded like
the Yankees were beating on my car with baseball bats. I was driving like
a drunken Bush,
trying to either get thru the damn storm or out-run it, but nothing worked. For
about 20 minutes
I drove and drove while the car was pummeled like it was a dark skinner
at Abu Graib.
Finally, finally, I drove past a Sam's Club that sells gas, and I spotted
an empty stall under the roof
of the Sam's gas station where I stayed for another 25 minutes as the hail
pounded the whole city.
Good thing I drive an old clunker because my car got the shit pounded out
