"Bush hates responding to the press, hates
responding to political enemies.
He thinks it's beneath him. He's got
a stubborn streak."
Snow, Bush apologist before he became Bush's apologist,
Report Rips Der Monkey
Even 'Jomentum' critical of his pal George
A Senate inquiry into Katrina failures ripped
Bush anew Thursday and urged the scrapping of FEMA.
But with hurricane season just weeks away, senators
conceded that few if any of their proposals could become reality in time.
The bipartisan investigation into one of the worst
natural disasters in the nation's history singled out Der Monkey
and the White House as appearing indifferent
to the devastation until two days after the storm hit.
It said the Homeland Security either misunderstood
federal disaster plans or refused to follow them.
And it said New Orleans for years had neglected
to prepare for large-scale emergencies.
FEMA worked great under Clinton.
When Bush "fixed" it, it went to hell.
saw it on GregPalast.com
Here is our new world of militarized greed, where
America's panic over lunatics with box-cutters
has metastasized into a billion-dollar fear industry;
where Republicans sucking on Super-sized Slurpies
are hunting dark-skinned voters to eliminate
their rights; where James Baker's fixer in alligator boots
sets up the grab for Iraq's oil on her way to
the rodeo; where miners are suffocated by the same
investment bankers who are siphoning off auto
workers' pensions. I add 50 illustrations, including
those intriguing ones marked 'secret' by the
State Department and the World Bank, plus a brilliant
recipe for shrimp curry -- and Dick Cheney.
Jack Anderson (Deceased)
by Molly Ivins
For some reason, (Bush's) FBI thinks Jack Anderson
had some papers involving two employees of the
American Israel Public Affairs Committee
(AIPAC) who have been criminally charged with receiving classified
information. That case is a crock in itself,
and to use it to dig through Anderson's archived stuff is just ludicrous.
Among Anderson's targets of old was the Federal
Bureau of Investigation itself - gee, still worried he might
have photos of J. Edgar Hoover in a dress after
all these years?
It cost me $44 to fill up yesterday.
When Clinton was president, it cost me $24 to
That extra $20 was profit for the oil bastards
and their White House puppet.
I didn't give that extra $20 to them, they
it from me, the same way
they're stealing an extra $20 a week out of every
gas tank in every car in America.
Since most families have two people (at least)
working, that's $40 a week
that BIG OIL is taxing us - call it $2000 a year,
the blod-thirsty bastards.
Is that why 2396
military families lost a member?
So Bush and his oil bastards could steal an extra
$2000 a year from every family?
Subject: Lend and forgive cycle
U.S. Secretary of the Treasury John Snow said
Sunday that the United States should end it's policy
of lending money to poor nations and forgiving
the debt. I question if it's wise to take that position now
that we are 9 trillion dollars in debt ourselves.
At some point in the future we are going to have to stop
our borrow and spend policies and start paying
down our national debt.
If America takes a harsh position against the
debt of poor countries then who will have compassion for us
when we come to the world with our hat in our
hand asking for help? America needs to be compassionate
towards others and fiscally responsible for our
own borrowing. Right now we are neither.

Takes Over 'The View'
Will the other three ever get to talk?
Rosie O'Donnell is expected to make a surprise
return to daytime television
by taking over exiting Meredith Vieira's slot
on the talk show "The View."
O'Donnell's appointment was reported Thursday
by the newsmagazine "Extra."
It was confirmed by a person close to the show.
Which O'Donnell will screech the most?
The "I love Bush and Bill Clinton makes me
Or the "I hate both Clintons and the Bushes"
Good luck getting a word in edgewise, girls.
Can you see O'Donnell sharing anything with three other people?

Has the White House lost its collective mind?
Do the president and his minions believe that Americans
can be stampeded into another needless war to
save his party from the consequences of the catastrophe in Iraq?
Is the Bush administration seriously thinking
of bombing Iran for political purposes? Of a nuclear strike?
Is it actually possible that Bush believes himself
to be on a divine, messianic mission? If the answer to any of
these questions is yes, then our democracy may
be sleepwalking into its worst crisis since the Civil War.
A pre-emptive strike on Iran, because it might
hypothetically develop nuclear weapons five or 10 years hence,
would be a naked act of aggression. Not to mention
an offense against the U. S. Constitution.
I enjoy your site and think you have a lot of
good info and insights.
I don't agree with your constant Dem-bashing,
If there were a third party we could go to and
vote for in November, I'd say good on you, but there isn't!
What is our alternative to voting Democrat? They're
our only hope (for now) to awaken from the Bush nightmare.
Not only that, but what exactly is it that you'd
like the Dems to do?
I want Democrats to:
Speak in plain, simple terms,
not 20-letter words in 80-word sentences
Pretend what they do is important
Stop attacking each other and
go after the Republicans
Stop giving Bush the benefit
of the doubt.
Up 63 Percent
Bush is killing the middle class
The 2006 U.S. Foreclosure Market Report, which
shows 101,597 properties nationwide entered some stage
of foreclosure in March, a 13 percent decrease
from the previous month but a 63 percent increase from March 2005.
The report shows a March national foreclosure
rate of one new foreclosure for every 1,138 U.S. households.

Dan, I agree.
Like Jon Stewart, Trudeau is doing the work the "serious" media are
Reading the strip, you get a feeling of the panic and the stupidity
of the giant clusterfuck
that Bush sent these untrained, unarmored men into for no other reason
than personal greed.
I've read stories of truck drivers and medics and accountants who get
to Iraq expecting to do
their jobs, then suddenly, a gun is thrust into their hands and they're
told to sweep a neighborhood
house-to-house looking for bastards like Zarqawi the Beheader - with
Another thing Trudeau is doing - did you see that strip a while back
when BD with the PSTD

Who else is even talking about that?
We've got (or will have) 300,000-500,000 mentally shaken kids (I'm
53, that's what I call them)
trying to adjust to life back home, where a slammed door makes them
fall to the ground in fear.
And when that Bush bastard was running in 2000, at every stop
he told the military families,
"Don't worry, because help is on the way."
"This is writing songs for dead blonds."

is Living With War
by my good friend Howie Klein
Conventional wisdom has pretty much made it clear
that Bush and his regime are incompetent, venal and corrupt
and that his war is one of the most catastrophic
foreign policy blunders every made by a U.S. president. What Neil
has done with LIVING WITH WAR is made these idess
easily digestible for post-literate western society at large.
He's managed to create a body of work that will
help make it easy for people to talk about the war, Bush's
short-comings and how to deal with them. But
who's going to stop Bush and the crazed, obsessed fanatics he's
surrounded himself with? LIVING WITH WAR will
filter up into political policy circles, not with answers but
with the questions he's raised from us and for
Subject: What's fair is fair
I heard a conservative talk show blow hard this
morning defending the retiring CEO of Exxon
that is getting the $400,000,000 going away package.
He said that the guy deserved whatever
he could get, like ball players that make millions
a year. OK, that's fine, but this is the same guy
that cries and rants when the want to raise the
minimum wage to 7 bucks an hour.
It's OK for this guy to get two power ball jackpots
plus the millions he was paid as salary for the years
he worked, but don't give single mom's, kids
starting out and families that are not sure where the money
to pay the food and electric bills is going to
come from a couple thousand dollars A YEAR to survive.
Yeah, that's fair and balanced.

Dude, it sounds like you're reading from the NaziCon 2004 Platform.
Not only are you correct, but they're not even bothering to deny it.
Bush tells idiot voters,
"When I give the oil companies a billion dollar
tax cut, you're better off."
And the voters buy it, year after year.
If every voter who lost money under Bush would vote Democrat,
we'd win 80 percent of the House and the senate this year.

If you do not know the difference between music,
which is about performance and interpretation,
often of someone else's songs, and writing a
column, you're dumb enough to be a Bush voter.
The Seegar Sessions are not Springsteen's finest
work, but his interpretations of classic songs
are nonetheless excellent. If you want "new,"
ahve you heard "Devils and Dust"?
Take a listen and then tell me in your best Tony
Snow voice that it's weak writing.
Or if that doesn't do it for you, check out another
fine US songwriter, John Prine.
His recent cd is among the best he's ever produced.
Wait, let me get this straight:
If you like Springsteen more than I do, that means I'm:
Geez, I'd give anything to be as smart as you.

Subject: gas prices
Bart, last issue, JD Wrote:
> Supplies would increase, prices would decrease,
Not true, supplies would stay the same or lower
because the BFEE would reduce pumping and refining.
The cost would go up because the BFEE would still
expect the same revenue stream with lower usage.
Paul, I agree.
They would have a refinery "fire."
Then an "unexpected storm" would cause damage to some piece of equipment,
Then a sub-prince in Nigeria would stub his toe on a heavy chair.
Then Bush would invade Iran, kill all their leaders, and convert them
Then a hurricane would "damage" some out-of-commission oil platforms,
Then, summer would surprise them AGAIN and they'd be caught short-handed.
With those oil bastards, what goes up does not come down.

In Jon's case, that might not be great news.
Lately, he's been getting "A List" celebrities

The bad news is, the "A List" celebs are only

I hate to say this, but to some degree, he's
turning into Jay Leno.
Before he got big, he'd talk *politics* with his
guests, but not anymore.
When Jon has on a big, big star, they talk about
how great and funny the new movie is.
That's not why I watch Jon Stewart.

Subject: The $100 bribe
In the face of rising gas prices and record profits
by the oil companies the Republicans have a
brilliant idea as to how to fix the gas price
crisis. The solution - give everyone a $100 election year bribe.
It's not just that it's a really bad idea, but
that the Republican's think the voters are dumb enough to fall for it.
Or maybe they understand the voter, which is
I guess they are so used to getting bribes that
it never occurs to them that it's wrong.

Gold traders love George Bush. They know that
his blundering mismanagement of the economy will keep
gold soaring well into the future. In the last
year alone gold increased nearly $200 an ounce capping off a
5 year run that has taken it from $274 per ounce
to $635 at Friday's close.
These are serious numbers and they reflect the
uneasiness with the global political situation (Iran, Nigeria)
as well as concern about the oceans of debt generated
by our Oval Office numbskull.
After 6 years of looting the public till, the
cupboard is just about bare. Bush has chalked up another $3 trillion
of public debt which sounds the death-knell for
Social Security, public education, and the social safety net.
My friend makes calls for "Friends of John Kerry."
Anyway, he's said that as of late he's had a LOT
of people he's been calling tell him
that they won't give the Democratic party one
more damn dime until they start fighting and winning.

24 hours after Richards filed a TRO against Sheen,
she was cozying up with Richie Sambora, Heather Locklear's
hubby of 11 years and the couple's next door
neighbor. Denise and Richie have supposedly been a down-low item
for over a month--and Heather ain't happy about
it. Us Magazine quotes a source close to Locklear: "Denise
Richie and initiated everything." A Richards
source says, "Denise wouldn't have 'gone there' until she knew Heather
was happily in a relationship with David Spade."
Heather Locklear humping Joe Dirt is too funny.
