Bush, Rats & a Sinking Ship
 by Robert Parry at  consortiumnews.com


Conservative legend William F. Buckley Jr. and neoconservative icon Francis Fukuyama have joined
the swelling ranks of Americans who judge George W. Bush's invasion of Iraq as a failure. While some
citizens may view these belated changes of heart as a case of rats deserting a sinking ship, the defections
mark a new political threat to Bush's war policies. But will Bush change course or just dig in his heels?


Bush, Rice: 'War is not the answer'


America's blood-thirsty Warmonger on Friday urged Iraqis to exercise restraint in a critical "moment of choosing."
His Sleazy, slutty girlfriend called on political factions to renew efforts to form a unity government.

"We can expect the coming days will be intense. Iraq remains a serious situation," Bush said in a speech.
"But I'm optimistic, because the Iraqi people know that though I may be a dreamer, ...I'm not the only one.
 I hope some day you'll join us, and the world will live as one."

No, ...sorry,
...that's not the Giggling Murderer - that was a man of peace - John Lennon.

"Only crazy people start wars..."



"Neil Bush is a frequent visitor to and paid speaker in Dubai, trying to get investors for his failed 
 Ignite! educational software company...Bush was in Dubai so much that he e-mailed his wife of his 
 desire for a divorce from his Dubai hotel room.  ...even the appearance of impropriety is unacceptable 
 in the War on Terror. Certainly, this is a huge conflict of interest. Does Bush really want to give 
 Michael Moore grounds to make 'Fahrenheit Ports 911'?"  
    -- Debbie Schlussel, the She-Nazi, turning on her Fuhrer    Link


Subject: Why not run our own ports?

I have a radical idea. Why not have America's ports run by Americans? 

Why do we need any other government to run our ports? 
Are we some third world country that needs other countries to come in and take care of us?

Homeland Security Protested Nutty Ports Deal


The Homeland Security Department objected at first to a United Arab Emirates company's taking over
significant operations at six U.S. ports. It was the lone protest among members of the government
committee that eventually approved the deal without dissent.  The department's early objections were
settled later in the government's review of the deal after Dubai agreed to a series of security restrictions.

Bill Frist and other congressional leaders, the company and Bush administration officials were working on
a compromise intended to derail plans by Republicans and Democrats for legislation next week that would
force a new investigation of security issues relating to the deal. Talks were to continue through the weekend.

"We're behind the president 100 percent," he added. "We believe the decision in all likelihood is absolutely the right one."

Republicans will follow Bush into hell, that's what they do and that's one reason they keep winning.
Democrats refused to back Clinton on gays in the military and health care and now Ford and GM
are bankrupt, mostly due to rising medical costs that the Democrats fought against controlling.

Democrats should be honest and change their name to either "the Suicide Party" or "the Party of Quitters."


Pulp Dicktion


How annoying is it to be guilt-tripped as a racist by Bush and his Dubai ports deal? 
Voters love being called racists when they have legitimate concerns! Too bad Bush 
couldn't have made his accusation from the stage at Bob Jones University."

America - Narcoleptic Pit Bull
 We're just another global flame-thrower


At this moment in American history, we are surrounded, infiltrated, soaked to the bone with warmongers
and fear dealers and hate poppers. The GOP has been positively masterful in cultivating a culture of intolerance
and disgust and Taliban-like fanaticism, instilling a brilliant kind of poisonous fear into middle 'Merka that equates
gays with terrorists and terrorists with the Middle East and the Middle East with the Devil and the Devil with
liberals and liberals with, well, gays. Isn't that clever?

As it goes with America, so it goes with the world.



"Chertoff was not briefed until after the ports story appeared in newspapers."  
     -- Homeland Security Chief Chertoff spokesman Russ Knocke, saying that Chertoff 
         was not aware a Dubai-owned company was seeking to operate terminals in U.S. ports    Link

But if Bush didn't know, and Chertoff didn't know - who knew?


Subject: Conservative president

Bart, you wrote:

> "I wonder what that's like - a conservative president."

Ronald Reagan said:
"The basis of conservatism is a desire for less governmental interference, or less centralized authority."
(I guess he was talking here about why Bush's gay-hating agenda is horrendously unconservative.)

When you think "conservative president," think of a President who values freedom,
and who doesn't think the government should run every single element of society into the ground.
Think "Clinton."  Think Clinton I and Clinton II

Gay 'hate and bait"


With Bush now trailing Democrats on national security, gay "hate and bait" is the only political weapon
the GOP will have left in their arsenal entering the 2006 elections. They could save themselves, the country,
and a lot of gay people a lot of pain and suffering if only they would heed the above advice and let it go.

True enough, in the short-term, gay "hate and bait" might score an election or two in the country's most
conservative regions.  Within the next generation, this gay hate thing isn't going to fly and the GOP will be
forced to spend another 40 years trying to move beyond their current position. Besides, every human rights
issue started this way, and the Right eventually lost those battles.

Studies show young people see no reason to discriminate against blacks or gays.
To survive, the GOP has to drop their condemnation of all non-white straight people.


Subject: bird flu and the Feds

When Bush's HHS Sec came to give a briefing to Maryland public health officials on what to expect 
from the feds in the event of a bird flu epidemic, his basic message was that the states are on their own 
and should not expect help from the federal government.    Read it in The Baltimore Sun  February 25, 2006

Subject: my son is still there

Yesterday was day 150 for him.
He is in the 101st Airborne, he rides in the turret of a Humvee manning a .50 caliber on convoy duty.
It has been 17 days since his last email.

Since he has been there, the 101st has lost 59 killed, his brigade has lost 29.
I grieve for the parents whose lives are forever devastated and worry constantly for him.

Subject: letter to Presididn't Bush

Dear Pres. Bush,
Please stop acting like a spoiled fraternity boy who made a promise in secret to one of his frat buddies!

No foreign government should control out ports.  Nor our airports.  Nor any other strategic public system,
such as communication satellites, tunnels, Internet backbone system, nuclear plants, power distribution systems,
security at military bases, shipping and transportation of military goods, or core manufacturing plants.

The guys running the UAE are dictatorial tribal sleaze balls, not democracy and peace loving leaders
who are promoting freedom.  Get over your "good ole boy" syndrome, please.

White House 'Discovers' 250 Plame Emails
 It's Hillary's records deja vu


The White House turned over last week 250 pages of emails from Cheney's office. Senior aides sent the emails
in the spring of 2003 related to the Plame leak, Fitzmas revealed during a federal court hearing Friday.

The emails are said to be explosive, and may prove that Cheney played an active role in the effort to discredit
Joseph Wilson, a vocal critic of Bush's crimes, sources close to the investigation said.

The White House "discovered" the emails two weeks ago and turned them over to Fitzgerald last week.
The emails could prove that Cheney lied about the leak in early 2004. Cheney said that he was unaware
of any effort to discredit Wilson or unmask his wife's undercover status to reporters.

Cheney was not under oath when he was interviewed.

ha ha
The worst crooks of the century?  Under oath?
Under oath is for Democrats with girlfriends, not Republican oil men with ties to Osama.


Subject: Bird flu

Bart, you have every reason to be worried about bird flu.
There is no "we could get hit hard."  We will get hit hard.

The bubonic plague was spread by globalization, infected rats hitching rides on ships
and no one knew it was coming.  We don't know when, but we know bird flu is coming.

It's spread to domestic birds by migrating birds; we can't stop birds from migrating.
There is no way to develop a vaccine until the virus mutates so that it is as easily transmitted
between humans as it is now between birds, and by then, because of globalization, it'll be too damn late.


I wish our government would prepare for this.
If someone in Manhattan or LA is confirmed with Bird flu - then what?
Do we quarantine New York and LA?

For how long?
Do we shut down all airports?
Do we close the Interstate highways?
Do you think the police will stay at their posts?

I wish they'd talk about this now, because once it hits and this whole country turns into New Orleans,
the only people with opinions that count will be those carrying loaded guns and that means trouble.


Nothing to Hide?


Federal agent: "Mr. Smith, we have been reviewing your web activity, and have found some very disturbing activity."

You: "I'm sure there's some mistake. I've done nothing wrong. I have nothing to hide. We are on the same side."

Federal agent: "That's quaint, Mr. Smith, but we decide whether you have done something wrong, not you."


Bolton: 'Hobbled by Sex'
 He's not getting enough with that mustache

 "Can I get a lap dance?"


UN ambassador John "Shoe Bang" Bolton laid into the UN Saturday whining that the world body is hobbled 
"by bad management, by sex and corruption" and a lack of confidence in its ability to carry out missions.

John Bolton also criticized the U.N.'s budget, noting that two-thirds of members pay only 20 percent of the cost.
Bolton, who hates the UN., has been leading U.S. efforts to destroy the United Nations after the oil-for-food 
scandal and sex scandals remind people of the billipons that Bush hasd stolen from the conquered country of Iraq.


The Boy Who Can't Say 'No"


Bush is warning Congress not to try to block the transfer six U.S. ports to an Arab-owned firm.
But it's a good bet that his threat won't result in an actual veto. The first 133 didn't.

Bush is the first president to complete a term without a veto since John Quincy Adams. Bush is an ardent
believer in executive power; he takes an expansive view of his prerogatives as commander in chief and
continues to push for more, including the line-item veto. So why hasn't he used the veto he already has?
Bush's top lobbyist told the National Journal last year that if Bush ever did veto legislation,
it would be by "mutual agreement" with GOP leaders.

Subject: BCR 89 feedback

Hi Bart, listening to your radio show last night, talking about the shooting of Harry.
What if Harry slipped up and was telling the truth?

What if Harry really was shot on Friday and Cheney's medical personnel tried to treat him
at the ranch and they didn't take him to the hospital until 24 hours later when his condition
was deteriorating to a point where he needed hospitalization? Were they waiting to see if
he was going to live or die before they made up a cover story?

That might be a reason to hold off notifying the sheriff and the media until they got
everyone sobered up and evidence cleaned up & out of sight.


Kerry, one thing's for sure:  They're hiding something.
A good liar only lies when he has to.

If this really was just "a simple mistake that often happens while hunting," what happened
during that 14 hour period when none of the witnesses could remember that Cheney was the shooter?


Marty's Entertainment Page

Subject: Lou Dobbs, right-winger


Right-wingers hate Lou Dobbs because he criticizes Bush administration and their corrupt friends so often.
Remember how Cronkite would sign off with the number of days in the hostage crisis?
Lou Dobbs was pointing out every day that passed without an indictment of Enron's Ken Lay and Jeffrey Schilling.
He also has been harping on the exportation of jobs to slave wage countries and bad results of other irresponsible rightwing policies.

He is a corporate "responsibility" hound, not a right-winger.

I admit it's possible for a right-winger to change.
Dobbs, lately, has been a Bush watchdog like a real reporter should be.


'Barney Fife' Dead at 81


Don Knotts, the skinny, lovable nerd who kept generations of television audiences laughing
as bumbling Deputy Barney Fife on "The Andy Griffith Show," has died. He was 81.

The actor's half-century career included seven TV series and more than 25 films,
but it was the Griffith show that brought him TV immortality and five Emmies.

The show ran from 1960-68, and was in the top 10 of the Nielsen ratings each season, including
a No. 1 ranking its final year. It is one of only three series in TV history to bow out at the top:
The others are "I Love Lucy" and "Seinfeld." The 249 episodes have appeared frequently in
reruns and have spawned a large, active network of fan clubs.

Just the other day, I saw the show where three women busted out of prison and took Barney
and Floyd hostage in one of the best episodes ever.  Seems like the shows was always best
when they were actually fighting crime, instead of battling Aunt Bea's pickles or whatever.

Griffith always said he'd do five seasons and no more, after five seasons, Knotts quit to look for
work but Griffith changed his mind and started season six. It wasn't the same without Barney.


Subject: Dean in Olympia, WA - I was there


I was at the crab-feed last Monday in Olympia and got to hear Dean twice.
I think it was the first time that hall ever sold out and I know it was because Howard Dean was there.
People NOT involved in politics gladly paid their $40 to hear the only nationally known Democrat with brass balls.

The Seattle Times got it right in that Dean sounded like pre-Iowa... it was GREAT!

If only the rest of the country were paying attention the way the people west of the Cascades do...  six (soon to be seven)
of our nine Congresspeople are real Democrats (NOT DINOs), as is our Governor, our two Senators, and both houses
of the State Legislature.  We still see a few Bush/Cheney bumper stickers, though it seems they're getting fewer.
I do my part by pulling in front of them so they can see my WPE and I Miss Clinton bumper stickers :-D

Keep up the great work,

 Iraq pumps 2,000,000 barrels a day,

Random Thought

It's so simple - why didn't I think of it sooner?

As the 2006 elections draw closer, Bush can order his Iraq puppet to request that
the invading army leave Iraq, "because their mission has been a great success."

Then Bush orders Al Qaeda to stop the suicide bombings until the soldiers come home
and then, right after the elections, he has Al Qaeda renew the suicide bombings and Bush 
can put the troops back in Iraq and resume stealing oil until the 2008 elections draw close.

It's so simple - why didn't I think of it sooner?


Subject: Food for thought

Bart, how many is a billion?
As of this writing, I am 61 years 2 months 2 days 1 hour 54 minutes and 59 seconds old.

If I had started counting at one number per second from birth,
I would have only gotten to 1,930,528,499 seconds.
How long would it take to count to a trillion?

These assholes in DC throw these numbers around like they were play-dough.

"Sometimes what's right isn't as important as what's profitable."

Republicans hate him, too


 Robert Dukes, a Baptist preacher who calls New Orleans "sin city" and believes gay rights
are the biggest threat to America, is questioning his faith in Der Monkey.

He sees Bush as having done little to halt moral decline, and fears the administration has mortgaged
America's future to China. The controversial decision to allow a Dubai firm to operate some U.S. ports
has raised further doubts in his mind about the man he supported in the past two elections.

"We ought to be able to run our own ports," said Dukes, a police trainer in Alexandria.
"Right now, if we had an election, I don't know what in the world I'd do."
