"Whatever I do to protect the American people
-- I have an obligation to uphold the law."
--Dubya, the law breaking president,
as seen on consortiumnews.com
As 2005 comes to a close, the American people
have a much clearer view of what the Bush administration
has done to the nation's democratic institutions.
Now, the New Year -- 2006 -- beckons with both
extraordinary challenges and opportunities. The
nation faces either its consolidation as a modern authoritarian
state or its reemergence as a traditional Republic
with accountability enforced on corrupt and dishonest politicians.
Editor Robert Parry discusses the role that his
Web site has played and could play in the future
in Windy Oklahoma
Wildfires raced through grass dried out by the
region's worst drought in 50 years,
charring nearly 200 homes and killing four people
in Texas and Oklahoma.
Severe drought, wind gusts of 40 mph and temperatures
reaching the low 80s set the stage.
Authorities believe they were mostly set by people
ignoring fire bans and throwing out cigarettes.
Has Bush permanantly screwed Earf's climate?
The day after Thankgiving, I'm grilling
backyard burgers in a t-shirt and shorts, no shoes.
The day after Christmas, it's in the seventies
and my light jacket is still hanging in the damn closet.
Hey, I've lived here 29 loooong years, and I'm
telling you it used to get cold in Oklahoma.
I lost the Hard Rock Island because every Friday
brought another ice storm, but not anymore.
Besides that, the last sprinkle of rain we got
was Halloween, and that lasted just a couple of hours.
In the eighties, Tulsa temperatures sometimes never rose above freezing
for an entire month.
Right now, it looks like we won't drop to freezing this entire winter
And the wind...
Shirley you've heard the Show Tune, "Oklahoma?"
The first line is, "Oooooooklahoma where the
wind comes screaming down the plain."
That's truer than true North.
When we had the Train
Station, we had to chain the furniture to the outdoor deck because
the damn wind kept stealing it - tables, chairs,
small children, salt & pepper shakers etc.
Chicago likes to think they're the "Windy
City," and maybe for cold wind they are,
but for "Blow me down" wind, cain't nobody
touch the Oklahoma Dust Bowl.
Jesus Lord, have ya gone nuts?
You refused to give us hot weather when Bixby corn needed heat
This winter, you refuse to let it get cold enough to kill off
the bugs, insects, flies, etc.
Have ya gone nuts, Lord, or should we blame Bush and his depleted fossil
Site Places 'Cookies' on Your Computer
Bush bastards tracking everybody all the time
The National Security Agency's Internet site
has been placing files on visitors' computers that can track their
Web surfing activity despite strict federal rules
banning most of them. These files, known as "cookies,"
disappeared after they got caught, and agency
officials acknowledged Wednesday they had made a mistake.
Nonetheless, the issue raises questions about
privacy at a spy agency already on the defensive amid reports
of a secretive eavesdropping program in the United
"Considering the surveillance power the NSA has,
cookies are not exactly a major concern," said Ari Schwartz,
of the Center for Democracy and Technology, a
privacy advocacy group in Washington, D.C. "But it does show
a disregard for privacy rules when they are not
even following the government's very basic rules for Web privacy."
flies to Iraq for kicks
"I get around..."
A 16-year-old from Florida who traveled to Iraq on his own without
telling his parents was put on a flight home Friday,
the U.S. Embassy said, while warning Americans
of the dangers of undertaking similar journeys. Farris Hassan, of
Fort Lauderdale, had been under the care of the
U.S. Embassy after being on his own in Iraq for several days.
"The young American citizen who has been in Iraq
the past few days has now safely departed Baghdad,
and he is is now on his way back home to his
family in the United States," Consul General Richard B. Hermann said.
Hermann reiterated warnings by the State Department
and embassy against traveling to Iraq and said
Americans in Iraq should register their presence.
Yeah, they can't have "unauthorized" people in
Iraq because they might see that the oil pumps working.
Bush is stealing over $100M every day - at the
cost of 2175 soldiers and our economy.
Subject: Yelling at Democrats
We should all be yelling at the Democrats.
If they had been yelled out before Bush got elected
we would not be in such a mess now.
They let a lot of important things slide to show
Americans how different they were from Republicans.
You can't fight the Republicans unless you are
as mean as they are.
Kindness does not work with greedy, uncaring,
manipulative scum bags.
Did you ever try kindness to a school yard bully
and have it be effective.
I tried during school times and got beat up.
"In one speech, Bush mentioned "victory" 15
times, against a background embossed with the slogan
"Plan for Victory," and the White House issued
a document entitled "National Strategy for Victory in Iraq."
As his horrible year draws to a close,
Bush appears to have expended the turning points. Welcome to victory."
--Sidney Blumenthal, Link
America's Last Stand
So now, at last, the crisis is upon us. Now the
cards are finally on the table, laid out so starkly that even
the Big Media sycophants and Beltway bootlickers
can no longer ignore them. Now the choice for the
American Establishment is clear, and inescapable:
do you hold for the Republic, or for autocracy?
There is no third way here, no other option, no
wiggle room, no ambiguity. The much-belated exposure
of George W. Bush's warrantless spy program has
forced the Bush-Cheney Regime to openly declare
what they have long implied -- and enacted --
in secret: that the president is above the law, a military
autocrat with unlimited powers, beyond the restraint
or supervision of any other institution or branch
of government. Outed as rank deceivers, perverters
of the law and rapists of the Constitution, the Bush gang
has decided that their best defense -- their
only defense, really -- is a belligerent offense. "Yeah, we broke
the law," they now say; "so what? We'll break
it again whenever we want to, because law don't stick to
our Big Boss Man. What are you going to do about

all the same when scandal strikes
by Bob Barr, passing for white
Bush responded to a question at a White House
news conference about what now appears to be a clear violation
of federal electronic monitoring laws by trying
to argue that he had not ordered the National Security Agency to
"monitor" phone and e-mail communications of
American citizens without court order; he had merely ordered them
to "detect" improper communications. This
example of presidential phrase parsing was followed quickly by the
Scott McLellan, dead-panning to reporters that
when Bush said a couple of years ago that he would never allow
the NSA to monitor Americans without a court
order, what he really meant was something different than what he
actually said. If McLellan's last name had been
McCurry, and the topic an illicit relationship with a White House intern
rather than illegal spying on American citizens,
I could have easily been listening to a White House news conference
at the height of the Clinton impeachment scandal."
Excuse me, Mr. Barr, but scandal did not "strike" Der Monkey.

Hasnt he already committed an IMPEACHABLE offense??
And isnt he doing so even now with all this wiretapping?
And why does John Q Public allow him to remain

Just wanted to know.
Mostly, it's because the Democrats are paralyzed with fear.
Second reason, "It wouldn't be polite."
Third reason, "We'd
be just like them if we removed Bush."
The public is scared, too.
Their choces seem to be crooked, warmongering bastards and
scared-bunny Democrats who are too dovish to defend America.

by my good friend Johnny Angel in the LAWeekly
Brian Robin like to peruse the hilariously irreferant,
progressive Web site Bartcop.com.
One Sunday night in July, in the privacy of his
Lancaster home, Robin came upon an item about Bill Thomas
(R-Bakersfield) on CNN, where he repeated the
GOP mantra that blamed 2002's corporate criminality on Clinton.
Robin couldn't let Thomas get away with it.
Robin put together an e-mail, with the opening salvo
"Surely you can't be that stupid," and went on
to compare Clinton's achievements to Bush's and Cheney's
various business failures and wrongdoings. Along
the way, he took a swipe at Thomas himself:
"I'm not a morally bankrupt Republican congressman
who opts for partisanship ahead of truth."
His personal e-mail server wasn't working, so
he sent his critical message on his company's e-mail system.
Two days later, he got a phone call from Thomas'
office asking him to confirm that he worked at the Times.
He did so.
Later that day, he was suspended; a week later,
he was terminated.

What percent is owned by their partners in the B.F.E.E.?
The BFEE has done business with Hezbollah since
they got Reagan elected in 1980.
Meanwhile, the current BFEE (The U.S. government)
blames Hezbollah for a litany of acts that nearly
defined Middle East terrorism in the mid-'80s,
including: the Beirut truck bombings in October 1983
that killed 241 U.S. Marines; the April 1983
U.S. Embassy bombing in Beirut which killed 63 people
and a second bombing of the U.S. Embassy that
killed 22 people in September 1984; and the 1985
hijacking of Rome-to-Athens TWA Flight 847 in
which a U.S. Navy diver was killed.
As instructed by Karl Rove, Hezbollah denies
involvement in any of these attacks.

the US embassy hostages until Reagan got in.

Things' Disrespect Monkey
The Living Things are a band with a flamboyant
style that's really missing from American rock right now.
But don't be fooled by their neo-glitter veneer.
They're out to make a statement — and it ain't about fashion.
Take the gig that got 'em banned from The
Viper Room in 2003.
"We had these three life-size papier-m'ché
dolls of George W., Barbara Bush and George Bush Sr., and we
filled them with a bunch of raw meat, trash and
anything we could throw in there," recalls Lillian, the mastermind
of most of the band's wild stage antics. "After
the second song, we smacked them open with a bat, and the shit
just exploded everywhere. It was awesome. I also
had a little George Bush doll, and I lit him on fire."
Before he knew it, Berlin says, "I was on the
curb outside. Security threw me out, they broke my arm, and I
took off running. They said if I ever came back
I'd be arrested. To this day they still have our gear, too."
The band was banned from the Viper — and as they
found out recently, the ban is still in effect.
Rockers with an anti-governemt attitude?
Why, I never heard of such a thing.

And oh yeah, as far as the "Page vs. Web-cast"

get the page to open much less down load the radio version.
But as for what I'd advise? I would do pages more
often and work on shows at about half the pace you are now.

leaked my crimes?
illegal to expose the King's crimes..."
Bush's Justice Department has opened an investigation
into the leak of classified information about
Bush's secret domestic spying crimes. The officials,
who requested anonymity because of their guilt,
said the inquiry will focus on Bush's good friends
at The New York Whore Times about illegal spying
conducted by the Bush's National Security Agency.
The Times revealed the existence of the program
two weeks ago in a front-page story that acknowledged
they withheld evidence of Bush's crimes to protect
him for a year. The whore newspaper made the claim
that they wanted more time to confirm various
aspects of the crimes, which is absurd in its face.
The illegal spying, which Bush says he ordered,
bypassed the Bill of Rights and the Constitution.

The lessons drawn by a variety of Bush advisers
as they map a road to recovery in 2006 include these:
Overarching initiatives such as restructuring
Social Security are unworkable in a time of war.
The public wants a balanced appraisal of what
is happening on the battlefield as well as pledges of victory.
And Iraq trumps all. "I don't think they realized
that Iraq is the totality of their legacy until fairly recently,"
said GOP harchetman Vin Weber. 'There is
not much of a market for other issues.'"
Decades from now, Bush will be remembered as the
