But recent developments suggest that the Bush
administration may already be contemplating
what to do with Americans who are deemed insufficiently
loyal or who disseminate information
that may be considered helpful to the enemy.
Plus, there was that curious development in January
when the Army Corps of Engineers awarded
Halliburton's KBR, a $385 million contract to
construct detention centers somewhere in the United
States, to deal with "an emergency influx of
immigrants into the U.S., or to support the rapid
development of new programs," KBR said. [Market
Watch, Jan. 26, 2006]
There also was another little-noticed item about
the Pentagon's Civilian Inmate Labor Program.
This program "provides Army policy and guidance
for establishing civilian inmate labor programs
and civilian prison camps on Army installations."

"I'm a lifelong Republican and I think the President's

Two of the 19 hijackers were from Dubai, whose
bid to run ports in New York, New Jersey and four other cities was
okayed by Bush even though investigators have
found signs that money used to finance terrorism flowed through Dubai banks.

58, whose son Joseph also died that day.

"This allowed us to see how his behaviour and
judgement operated in real time. It covered all
the problems of the Bush/Cheney administration-secrecy
and stonewalling- then blowing off
the rules that are at the heart of
our democracy-then using a filter to try and put the truth out
in a way that would most suit their
political needs and then bad political judgment in bungling

-- Maureen Dowd, she hates everybody - this week it's Cheney, Link
Subject: Why not have Americans
running our ports?
Everyone is arguing about if we should let the
foreign Arab countries run US ports.
Especially countries involved in the 9-11 hijackings.
I have a radical idea. Why don't we let United
States companies run our own ports?
Maybe it's time to start doing things ourselves
rather than rely on the Muslims and the
Communist Chinese to take care of us.
These kind of decisions makes it seem as if America
is deliberately trying to destroy itself.

It appears Whittington was a lot closer than 90
feet away from Cheney.
by the Duke of Douche-baggery
Cheney is unique in the way he fills his constitutional
office. Previous vice presidents either have been
ignored or delegated specific duties, but Cheney
is alone in emerging as an independent power center.
Cheney is at least the equal of Card and Rove.
Under this system, Cheney was able to keep quiet for
14 hours his accidental shooting of a fellow
hunter. The result was a week full of embarrassment and
confusion, but the broader message is a dysfunctional
White House that helps bring about a second
term with an unclear domestic agenda and sagging

Chain of Failure
If Katrina represented an act of God, the official
response to it clearly came from somewhere else.
The federal government of the richest, mightiest
and most technologically sophisticated nation on Earth
stood by and did next to nothing while a hurricane
and subsequent flooding destroyed one of its major cities
- despite plenty of warnings that the city was
vulnerable. Was it sheer incompetence? If so, it rose to levels
that Americans might expect in places such as
Bangladesh or the Congo but certainly not from the United States.
Was it merely indifference? That, too, would
require a degree of disregard for the lives of common folk
that we've seen in the leaders of distant, undeveloped
lands, but not here.
They've explained Katrina about like they explained Cheney's hunting

"If the United States wants to survive as a
country - $450 billion mistakes like Iraq
and obviating the rule of law will
take anyone down - Bush, Cheney and the Republicans
have to be stopped in 2006 by Democrats
taking Congress. Our elected Democrats have
a unique, historical duty to save the
country or be forever, irrevocably known as the
clueless clowns who stood there and
let it happen."

Subject: Hackett and Dean
Bart, Howard Dean showed the Dems the way to take
back the country.
Oppose the WAR!!! Howard is a centrist,
doctor and ex-Wall Street guy. Not a wild man.
He said NO to the war and became the front runner
up to the Iowa caucus. He totally energized the party.
Joe Trippi helped raise millions. I went to bed
thinking Dean was the nominee in Iowa
and woke up hearing that Kerry was now the nominee.
Obviously the DNC, the DLC and all the Democratic
power brokers did not want Dean.
He would have destroyed Bush in the debates and
every other way, if he had lived.
So, the Dems had a bloodless assasination - HIS
SCREAM etc. They're a pathetic excuse for a party.
The only thing that will save us now is if someone
can conjure up a Golem and have him help take back our Democracy.
Jack, if only Dean had won Iowa.
Why do we let Iowa pick our nominee every election?
But then, we're Democrats.
Subject: GOP worried about 2008
Republicans aren't worried about Hillary being
the Democratic nominee in 2008.
They know they can beat her.
I'd love to see those poll numbers.
With Bush at 40 % and Cheney at 29, are people
wanting more Republicans?
The one they are worried about is Mark Warner
the former Governor of Virginia.
Remember the Watergate line: "Follow the money."
After the 2006 elections, "follow the attacks"
by Republicans on potential Democratic candidates.
Warner will be #1 on their hit list.
In Republican circles, the talk is how they got
to stop Warner from being the nominee.
Who do I Believe?
At about 8 a.m. Sunday, a Cheney aide called
Cheney advisor Mary Matalin,
The aide read her a statement about the accident
that Cheney had considered releasing.
The statement 'didn't say much of anything,'
Matalin says—not even that Cheney was the shooter.
Matalin then spoke with a second aide and with
Cheney's family and heard different versions of
what had happened in the shooting. She decided
no statement should be released amid the "confusion."
Cheney's approval rating stands at 29%; Der Monkey's
So, they couldn't even get their story straight for the Cheney advisor?
Subject: When did Dick shoot
Also on Randi Rhodes last Friday I believe she
played a clip of Whittington
saying he was shot on the previous Friday, not
Saturday as we had been told.
I have not heard a thing about this since.
Scott, I, too, have not heard that.
New Detention Centers
Now is the time to be paranoid. Paranoia should
now be the normal state of mind for thinking people.
Sneers and dismissive remarks about "conspiracy
theorists" must be ignored. We don't want to end up
like the proverbial frog who boils to death because
the heat was turned up slowly...What sort of national
emergency requires detention centers? America
has plenty of prisons. More of our population is behind bars
than in any country on earth. There are detention
centers for immigration in existence already. As for helping
in case of a natural disaster, hurricane Katrina
proved that saving American lives is not on the Bush agenda.
When the word detention comes up, hairs should
rise on the back of every neck. Thanks to the Patriot Act
and the creation of "enemy combatants" these
detention centers can be used to lock up anyone for any
reason for any length of time that Uncle Sam

The influence peddling scandal surrounding the
indicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff is at a critical point.
Noel Hillman, the respected Justice Department
public integrity chief who bird-dogged the inquiry

the nomination came only weeks after the investigation

You democraps are so pathetic. All y'all

We didn't shoot anybody.
We didn't get 2300 soldiers killed for no reason.
We didn't ruin the economy.
We didn't start a war that made the world hate
We didn't lose New York or New Orleans.
I can understand making fun of Cheney but it has
gotten so bad that y'all actually believe your own bull shit.
Well, he did shoot the guy...
Cheney has come out and taken full responsibility,
trying to blame Whittington for walking behind him...
...his friend has forgiven him and said that the
liberal communist press has blown it way out of proportion,
and the Democrap Sheriff won't press charges.
And some how out of all that, you nut jobs are convinced
that Cheney is lying or covering up the real
story. So Bart, where did you get your medical degree to write:

My God! What has happened to my nation?
My nation that no longer pays more than lip service

My nation that will wage a war of aggression against a

You're confusing gambling with rational risk management.
When taking a risk, the actor has an effect on
the outcome (such as starting a business).
Not so with gambling, where the outcome is determined
mostly by factors outside your control.
(I know you'll disagree with that statement,
especially concerning poker).
Yeah, I'll disagree with that all day long.
If you're behind by one run in the eighth inning
and you finally get a man on first base,
you need to gamble on a hit-and-run because
the odds say you'll win more games that way.
Those who choose not to gamble will lose to the
team manager who does.
Some states codify this difference in their anti-gambling
statutes, so that it is illegal
to bet on poker, dice, the numbers, cockfighting,
whatever; but not illegal to bet

'September the 11th changed the way I think,'
George W. Bush says. The president was talking about
protecting the American people from future terrorist
attacks. That commitment is sincere, passionate and
all-encompassing. But it also stands at odds
with Bush's disinterest in governing and his proven inability to do it.
None of this is surprising. Bush and Cheney
came to Washington not to run the government but to run it down.
The main mission of Bush and Cheney was to leave
Washington less than they found it.
How crazy and wrong is this dude?
