the Limits of Debate
by Robert Parry as seen on consortiumnews.com
George W. Bush, who sees himself as America's
all-powerful "unitary executive," has begun
pronouncing limits on "responsible" debate about
his Iraq War policies, putting outside the bounds
questions on his ulterior motives and false pre-war
claims. But it looks like Rep. John Murtha,
who advocates a prompt withdrawal from Iraq,
can expect some harsh treatment, too,
as conservatives dredge up allegations that he
exaggerated his war wounds in Vietnam.
Have you noticed how few (if any) Democrats are standing by as Murtha
Democrats - you can always count on them to cave in a fight.

are 'Gangs' in a Moral America
(Scroll to January 17)
"What a ridiculous situation! And yet,
as I discussed yesterday, this is exactly what happens to
Democrats when they are 'swiftboated' by Republicans.
To stop 'swiftboaters' from destroying
the candidacies of more and more top notch Americans
running for office, Democrats must take
the initiative now to make sure that these candidates
can set and stay on their own stage--in their
own frame. The key to cracking down on the swiftboaters
is to reframe the entire political system
in moral terms. They key is to start describing
the swiftboaters as 'gangs.'...Those of us who pay
the price--who fought when our nation called
us to fight, who watched our friends die on the battlefield,
and who came back home still believing in America--we
deserve to be protected from these gangs."
A little urging, and I'm sure the Democrats will become
bold and take action!
Threaten Life of Reporter
Al-Jazeera aired a silent videotape of hostage
American reporter Jill Carroll in which
they gave Bush 72 hours to free female prisoners
in Iraq or the journalist would be killed.
Carroll, a freelance reporter for The Christian
Science Monitor, has not been heard from
since she was grabbed Jan. 7 in one of Baghdad's
most dangerous neighborhoods.
Gunmen ambushed her car shortly after she left
the offices of a Sunni Arab politician.
Do not lay down in front of a bulldozer
or a train or become a human shield.
That includes traveling to war zones, too.
I hope she makes it back, but she almost begged
to be kidnapped.

It's widely expected that Bush will talk a lot
about health care in his State of the Union address.
He probably won't boast about his prescription
drug plan, whose debut has been a Katrina-like saga
of confusion and incompetence. But he probably
will tout proposals for so-called "consumer driven"
health care. So it's important to realize that
the administration's idea of health care reform is to take

Don, excellent letter and a great idea, but let's go one step further.

Hillary sparked a political firestorm Monday
by describing the GOP-controlled Congress
as a "plantation" during a speech before an African-American
congregation in Harlem.
"When you look at the way the House of Representatives
has been run, it has been run like a plantation,
and you know what I'm talking about," Clinton
said during an event sponsored by Al Sharpton.
This isn't the first time the former first lady's
utterances have provoked an uproar.

public campaign financing for Congress.

them unless Russia loaned them some ICBMs.

a world embargo since then, not to mention military

That is, unless you buy into the whole line of

"Intelligent Design is not science"
Although not presented as an official church
position, the Vatican newspaper published an article
this week labeling as "correct" the decision
by a judge in Pennsylvania last month that the concept
of intelligent design could not be taught as
a scientific alternative to evolution.
Fiorenzo Facchini, a professor of evolutionary
biology at the University of Bologna, wrote in the
Jan. 16-17 edition of the paper, L'Osservatore
Romano: "...it is not correct from a methodological
point of view to stray from the field of science
while pretending to do science," he wrote.
"It only creates confusion between the scientific
plane and those that are philosophical or religious."
