The net's best advertising deal
"Bush believes in bumping chests. And when
he finds somebody with a bigger chest then he will step back.
He did it on torture and he is doing
it on the surveillance story. Bush, when people push back, gives in.
Social Security, you name it, he gives

Wouldn't it be great to live in a country with a free press?
by Stephen Crockett as seen on consortiumnews.com
In our view, two interrelated factors largely explain how the Bush administration
managed to push the United States so far in surrendering
its historic concepts of democracy and freedom.
One has been the control of information; the
other the manipulation of fear.
As a corollary, it's our judgment that the reversal
of this dangerous process depends on two initiatives
- reaching the American people with important
facts and replacing fear with courage. Though achieving
these goals will not be easy, we believe truth
can trump propaganda and courage can overcome fear.
In this guest essay, Stephen Crockett, co-host
of Democratic Talk Radio,
gives his assessment of what's gone wrong and
what needs to be done.
to 34% approval
World hates him, Americans hate him, GOP hates him
Bush's approval has fallen to 34 percent, down
from 42 percent last month.
Fifty-nine percent disapprove of the job the
president is doing.
For the first time in this poll, most Americans
say the president does not care.
Fifty-one percent now think he doesn't care,
compared to 47 percent last fall.
Just 30 percent approve of how Mr. Bush is handling
the Iraq war, another all-time low.
By two to one, the poll finds Bush's quagmire
is going badly - the worst Iraq assessment yet.
Even on fighting terrorism, which has long been
a strong suit for Mr. Bush, his ratings dropped lower than ever.
Half of Americans say they disapprove of how
he's handling the war on terror, while 43 percent approve.
I must step-up my torturing of this unpopular
bastard for the next 2-3 years.
I've been too easy on him, I'm tired
of playing Mr. Nice Guy.

"What Bush and Rove are hoping is that all
of their missteps, which are now numbering
in the hundreds, are going to somehow
be overlooked because people, instead of focusing
on the '06 election, will jump ahead
and think about the next one..."

...care of the Twilight Zone.
A few years ago, we had a booming economy complete
with record surplus, relative world peace,
and a president who was simultaneously being
impeached AND beating Ronald Reagan's all-time
approval rating with a big 73. Even
so, the Democrats managed to lose everything.
Now we have global total war, record deficits,
a creeping economy for the wealthy and a rushing doom
for the not wealthy, a president who has somehow
managed to beat his own record-setting low approval
rating of 34 with a new and sinking 32 with an
anchor, and still the democrats can't put their collective
thumbs up their asses.

A Basketball story that doesn't suck
Jason McElwain finally got his big break - a
chance to actually play with his team.
Just playing the "trash minutes" at the end of
a basketball game would have been
a banner night for the 5-foot-6 autistic senior
at Greece Athena High School.
The coach said the first shot, missing the basket
by about 6 feet, made him worry about
the decision to put McElwain into his first game.
Jim Johnson said he put his head in his
hands and said, "Please Lord just give him a
Maybe there is a God, because McElwain turned

settle for two on another shot. The crowd went

May Face Budget Cuts in 2008
Screw them - what'd they ever do for us, right George?
At least tens of thousands of veterans with non-critical
medical issues could suffer delayed
or even denied care in coming years to enable
Bush to meet his promise of cutting the deficit
in half — if the White House is serious about
its proposed budget.
After an increase for next year, the Bush budget
would turn current trends on their head.
Even though the cost of providing medical care
to veterans has been growing by leaps and bounds,
White House budget documents assume a cutback
in 2008 and further cuts thereafter.

Found this Gematria site. I'm not sure what Gematria
is (no entries @ dictionary.com),
but if you click on the Hebrew translator and
type in George Bush, it does a "transliteration"

Blamed on Poor Planning
Duh, ...ya think?
Poor prewar planning by Bush, Cheney and Rummy
left the United States without enough skilled
workers to efficiently rebuild Iraq's economy
and public works, according to a report issued Monday.
Thanks to inadequate planning, the report said,
early occupation officials lacked enough reconstruction staffers
who knew what they were doing. While reconstruction
has cost American taxpayers about $30 billion, Iraq
still lacks reliable electricity, water and other
Don't forget the 2295 dead and the 23,000 wounded American soldiers.

Bart, yesterday you published:

Where's the "Big Dick" when you really need him?
Der Master of scare tactics
Bush turns out to be a great professor of politics.
His lessons -- he teaches through example -- have become
essential political wisdom. He taught Americans
that all Arabs are alike by toppling Saddam, who had nothing
to do with 9/11. Bush taught us that in
the pursuit of power, politics trumps principle. So you never risk alienating
the part of your base that's loony and hateful
-- the Ann Coulter chorus -- by publicly criticizing their xenophobia.
And the president taught us that a War on Terror
can cover a lot of ground. No programs, no policies, no answers?
No problem. When it's a War on Terror, you don't
have to make sense, and you don't have to explain yourself.

$2.5B Bonus for Halliburton
The Army has decided to reimburse Halliburton's
KBR for nearly all of its disputed costs on a $2.41 billion
no-bid contract to deliver fuel and repair oil
equipment in Iraq, even though the Pentagon's own auditors had
identified more than $250 million in charges
as potentially excessive or unjustified. The Army said Friday that
questionable business practices by KBR, had in
some cases driven up the company's costs. But in the haste
and peril of war, it had largely done as well
as could be expected, the Army said, and aside from a few penalties,
the government was compelled to reimburse the
company for its costs. Under the type of contract awarded to the
company, "the contractor is not required to perform
perfectly to be entitled to reimbursement," said Rhonda James,
a spokeswoman for the southwestern division of
the United States Army Corps of Engineers, based in Dallas,
where the contract is administered."
So, Bush gives them a $2.4 billion, no-bid contract that says Halliburton
has no expectation to deliver?
That's outright stealing, but hey - if you rob banks for a living,
and the Bank Guard refuses to come to work,
then it's your duty to empty that bank and come back again ever day
to empty it again and again.
Subject: running our own ports
Perkel asks if we have become a third world country
unable to run our own ports.
The answer is: Yes. We have become a third world
The process began with Ronald "Debt" Reagan who
destroyed America's manufacturing industry
and tuned us into a debtor nation. Clinton's
recovery from the imbecilic Republican economic bilge
was then destroyed by Bubya Douche II, who doesn't
know anything about anything on top of being dumb.
We now have huge debt, a dictator, an overblown
military and worst of all: no opposition.
Just like Chile 1973.

Group and Bush's Ports Giveaway
Remember these two names: John Snow and David
Then remember these three companies: Carlyle
Group, CSX, and Dubai Ports World.
PART OF CSX -- namely, CSX Lines -- was sold to
...drum roll, please....
The Carlyle Group, early in Feb. 2003, for $300
One of the biggest customers of CSX Lines is
the US military.
John Snow, the CEO of CSX, was appointed Treasury
Secretary by Bush jr. on Feb. 7, 2003.
David Sanborn was an executive with CSX and, then,
a senior Dubai Ports World executive whom Bush
appointed last month to be the new administrator
of the Maritime Administration of the Transportation Department.
Sanborn worked as Dubai Ports World's director
of operations for Europe and Latin America.
Gee, d'ya think Sanborn greased the skids for
Dubai Ports World to get Bushite approval
to run operations at six of our nation's ports?
Partly, I blame the Democrats.
Toddlers and oil crooks will take what they want

Did the Democrats jump on that?
Did they say, "Mr.

cause Bush to say something incredibly stupid
sych as, "Bring 'em on" or
"Over my dead body,"
then the Democrats could have the bastard locked
in to an indefensible position - then crush him.
It's so easy to do - Bush can be
outwitted by third-graders.
But no, Mr. Rove would never give permission
for the Democrats to speak up,
and it wouldn't be nice, either, ...and
we Democrats are all about being nice.
"Nice" comes first, then comes "fair," then "honest."

-- Bill Frist, suddenly, solidly behind Bush's ports giveaway, Link
If the Democrats had any brains or the will to win (should I bother
to finish this sentence?)
they would be calling Bush a "caver" and "a quitter" to force him into
sticking with this nutty ports giveaway.
I don't think America will buy it, and the more Bush sticks to this
nutty idea, the lower his ratings will fall.
Will we see Bush's approval in the twenties? If and when that happens,
Republicans will desert
the sinking ship and impeachment could possibly come earlier than 2007.
