1808 - Moral Clarity?

"It sucks. Honestly, it just feels like we're
driving around waiting to get blown up.
That's the most honest answer I could
give you. You lose a couple friends and it gets hard."
Tim Ivey, 28, in Baghdad, "'Waiting to Get Blown Up'",
"Think of what you hate most about your job.
Think of doing that for five straight hours,
every single day, sometimes twice a
day, in 120-degree heat. Then ask how morale is.
Frustrated? You have no idea."
--Army Staff Sgt. Jose Sixtos,
There's no end to "and what makes it worse is..." but I saw Rummy on
TV today saying
the men who thought they were coming home just got transfered from
Mozul to Baghdad
where they'll have to do another four months before they're scheduled
to go home.
And I don't want to attack the soldiers or their families, but where
the hell are they?
Why are they being so quiet about what they're going thru?
If this war ever ends, we're going to hear how much they're suffering,
with lost limbs,
lost sight, lost memories, broken marriages (not to mention the thousands

They should be doing what Cindy Sheehan is doing.

George W. Bush is polishing up his "moral clarity"
argument as he and Condoleezza Rice
signal to the Israelis that they should press
ahead in crushing "terrorist" organizations like
Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Gaza.
Yet if there is any place in the world that lacks
"moral clarity" it is the Middle East - which is
why Bush's vision of the region has proved so
dangerous. Rather than perceiving shades of gray
and finding areas of compromise, Bush insists
that everything is black and white - and thus
justifies the use of overwhelming force to destroy
evil wherever Bush sees it.
But even on issues where U.S. government officials
and leading pundits speak in unison
- denouncing "terrorist" groups like Hezbollah,
for instance - there is far more ambiguity
than Americans are being told.
Take, for instance, the widespread agreement that
Hezbollah earned the opprobrium as
"terrorist" because one of its suicide bombers
destroyed the U.S. Marine barracks in
1983 killing 241 American servicemen in Beirut.
While this incident is routinely cited as the
indisputable evidence that Hezbollah is an evil
"terrorist" organization, the reality is much
murkier. Indeed, under any objective definition
of "terrorism" the Beirut bombing would
not qualify as a "terrorist" act.

demands Dean apologize
U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris (R-Too Much Makeup)
demanded an apology
Thursday from Demo chair Howard Dean, who told
the simple truth.
In Palm Beach, Dean made the remark in reference
to Harris' handling of the 2000
presidential election fraud when she was Florida
secretary of state and an honorary
chairslut of George W. Bush's Florida campaign.
Harris certified Bush's 537-vote win
in Florida over Gore, putting a Fascist in the
White House for the first time ever..
Dean said that Bill Nelson is "going to beat the
pants off Katherine Harris, who didn't
understand that it is ethically improper to be
the chairman of a campaign and count
the votes at the same time. This is not Russia
and she is not Stalin."
Dean says Cruella is not Stalin
- and Harris wants an apology?
Howard - I say apologize to her - tell her she IS Stalin
and that you're damn sorry you got things backwards.
"I'm not for sale, either!"
"Congress is the biggest single problem we
have. This is a Congress that doesn't want
to ask questions, or if it asks questions
is willing to take no for an answer. Here we are
three years into this war and there's
not been a single significant hearing on the conduct
of the war. The division commanders
have never been called up before Congress.
How did it go? What's your relationship
with Rumsfeld like? Not a single general
has been relieved by the leadership."
-- Thomas Ricks, author of: "Fiasco in Iraq",
Subject: did Jesus exist?
Bart, there were literally hundreds of gospels
floating around by the time Paul was writing
in the 60's. However, when the 4 Gospels and
other works were selected by the church for
the New Testament, most of these other Gospels
Also, although it is true that Jesus lived in
a very literate time, most peasants were not literate
and it is likely that many of his followers were
peasants. As to why Jesus is called "Jesus" and
not Joshua, the gospels we have are written in
Koine Greek, not Aramaic or Hebrew, so it makes
sense from that respect. Just as Peter is referred
to as "Peter" in most translations and not "Cephas".
It is likely that Jesus did exist historically,
especially considering that there are a couple of historical
mentions of his crucifixion. In these mentions
he does not seem to be a very important person, however.
Who and what exactly Jesus was is basically impossible
to know; he could have been a great spiritual
leader or a schizophrenic or a hack magician
or a doomsday prophet etc.

Your Rights Away
Can you name the one country on earth where the
government can steal elections,
strip away basic rights, spy on citizens, and
launch wars based on lies, but where
the people do not take over the
nation's capital in protest?
If you said the United States, you'll be wrong
on September fifth when Camp Democracy
begins on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.
At long last, Americans are preparing to say "Enough
is enough," and to do what
Ukrainians, Mexicans, or any other people not
drugged into acquiescence would do
when things got this bad: occupy the capital
city to demand peace, justice, and accountability.

The multibillion-dollar surge in federal contracting
to bolster the nation's domestic defenses
after 9-11 has been marred by extensive waste
and misspent funds, according to a new report.
Lawmakers say that since the Homeland Security
Department's formation in 2003, an explosion
of no-bid deals and a critical shortage of trained
government contract managers have created a
system prone to abuse. Based on hundreds of audits,
32 Homeland Security Department contracts
worth a total of $34 billion have "experienced
significant overcharges, wasteful spending, or
mismanagement," according to the report.
The WaHoPo is so surprised that billions of dollars are missing.
Do you think Bush fabricated
so he could be honest
with the accounting?
Yo'd think the WaHoPo never heard the phrase "evil
men," until this year.

God how I hope that's true.
This one is a real test of faith.
Geoff, not really and I'll tell you why:
bet on America, the Bushes bet against us.
The Clintons bet on peace, the
Bushes own oil, which goes up in war.
The Clintons brokered peace
agreements, the Bushes own gold, which goes up in war.
Clinton told the world, "Bet
on America," when he paid down Reagan's deabt.
Bush borrows from others, because
nobody wants to bet on a loser.
Clinton prevented terrorist
attacks, Bush creates terror every day he's in office.
With Clinton, we had peace,
a surplus, a Constitution and the world's respect.
What do we have now, besides
2560 dead soldiers?
These people who say, "They're all the same"
aren't paying attention.
"This president has a very firm world view
that is not about to be changed
by facts or realities. There are good
guys and bad guys. Right now, Israelis
are the good guys and Hezbollah, Syria
and Iran are the bad guys... Bush's
refusal to deal directly with Hezbollah,
Syria or Iran 'is a manifestation of
this world view: We don't talk to bad
-- Ivo Daalder, Clinton's NSC director of European affairs
Ron Reagan said that about his Dad.
"Once he made up his mind, no amount of facts
could change it."

Rep. Tom Reynolds (R-N.Y.), who is in charge
of keeping Congress in GOP hands this fall,
is airing TV ads that make no mention of his
party affiliation... Reynolds is one of several House
GOP leaders who do not mention their party affiliation
on their campaign websites. In ads posted
on their sites, Roy Blunt (R-Fascist) and Deborah
Pryce (R-Crook) also fail to mention the GOP.

A decorated sergeant and Arabic language specialist

he never told his superiors he was gay and his
accuser was never identified. Bleu Copas, 30,

Alberto Gonzales is achieving something remarkable,
even miraculous, as attorney general:
He is making John Ashcroft look good.
I was no fan of Asdhcroftl, who may be best remembered
for holding prayer breakfasts with
department brass, hiding the bare-breasted statue
of Justice behind an $8,000 set of drapes,
and warning darkly that those who differed with
administration policy were giving aid to terrorists.
But as I watched Gonzales testify last week, it
struck me: In terms of competence (the skill with
which he handles the job) and character (willingness
to stand up to the president), Gonzales is
enough to make you yearn for the good old Ashcroft

Subject: Skull & Bones
I found this "white paper" written in 1991 that
completly describes the history and power
of the Skull & Bones and what they stand
for. It is a compelling article that I could not stop reading.
The S&B is even more powerful than I ever
thought and also more insane. As you read this you will
see where the PNAC philosophy comes from.
Keep in mind this article was written in 1991 to describe
the mindset and goals of the first Bush.
Is it no wonder that they want his insane son in power now?
Despite the possible personal biases in these two accounts of the history
of the Order of Skull & Bones,
it must be acknowledged that the membership of
the society has tended over generations to converge
upon a small group of New England families who
have intermarried and then sponsored their sons and
nephews into the Order. This kind of inbreeding
always tends to produce narrow-mindedness and
prejudice against outsiders, which can be a serious
shortcoming, particularly among individuals
responsible for charting the course of a nation
as powerful as the United States.
"It's fashionable to blame the US for all the
world's ills, but in this case, Bush [is]
at the heart of the trouble...Bush's
animating idea has been that the peoples of the
Middle East can be bombed into democracy
and terrorised into moderation. It has
proved one of the great lethal mistakes
of his abominable presidency -- and the
