Excerpt: Posing the choice as submitting to Big Brother
or being exterminated by mushroom clouds,
Bush and Rove have pummeled the republic for
six years with a non-stop, 24/7 propaganda
campaign of fearmongering that is unprecedented
in American history.
George Bush is a lame duck? With an iron will,
Bush negated the 2006 election by pushing
through an escalation of the Iraq war, expanded
executive powers over Congress and new
powers for foreign and domestic surveillance.
Congressional Republicans were reduced to sycophantic
supporters while they groused in the
cloakrooms that Bush could destroy their party.
Prior to the Memorial Day recess, congressional
Democrats offered unconditional surrender on
the Iraq escalation, and just before the August
recess they followed with unconditional surrender
"Despite Bush's repeated statements that the
report will be written by Petraeus and Ryan Crocker, the U.S. ambassador to Iraq, administration
officials said it would actually be written by the Bushies." --
Julian Barnes, Link
So, ...then, ...we already have the report and it says,
"We're winning, don't give up on victory when
we're so close."
Excerpt: A couple of decades ago, I did lobbying and public
relations for the highway industry.
There's a lot of money in the Federal Highway
Trust Fund, and it should be spent. Spending the money
would make highways safer, increase fuel
efficiency, and create thousands of construction jobs. Those
construction workers would spend their money
on food, housing, motor vehicles and consumer goods,
and the economy as a whole would get a
But, no. The Administration would rather sit on
the money and berate Congress for trying to spend
more of it, while the infrastructure crumbles.
We need to ask ourselves: WWFDRD?
Excerpt: The White House on Tuesday assailed Hillary for
criticizing Der Fuhrer in a TV ad, calling her
statements "outrageous." The 60-second spot,
which began running Tuesday in Iowa, intercuts
scenes of Hillary interacting with voters and
talking about challenges facing many working people.
"If you're a family that is struggling and you
don't have health care, you are invisible to this president," she said.
"If you're a single mom trying to find affordable
child care so you can go to work, you're invisible too.
The ad also argued that U.S. troops in Iraq and
Afghanistan are "invisible" to Bush.
White House spokeswhore Dana Purina lambasted
the spot and the senator.
"It's not right!! Mom!!!
It is unconscionable that a member of Congress would say such a
What was Hillary's reaction to Purina's crying
"Apparently I've struck a nerve. The White House
just attacked me a few minutes ago," Clinton said.
"Not only have I said it and am saying it,
I will keep saying it because I happen to believe it."
Excerpt: How much is good press worth? To the Bush administration,
about $1.6 billion.
That's how much seven federal departments spent
from 2003 through the second quarter of 2005
on 343 contracts with public relations firms,
advertising agencies, media organizations and individuals,
according to a new Government Accountability
"I'll sell my people out if the price is right!"
Tom Armstrong Williams, the Bush butt-licker,
had been unmasked as a paid
administration promoter who received $186,000
from the Education Department
to tell lies about Bush's No Child Left Behind
law in broadcast appearances.
Excerpt: Ninety-nine U.S. soldiers killed themselves last year, the highest
rate of suicide in 26 years.
More than one out of four soldiers who committed
suicide did so while serving in Iraq or Afghanistan,
Iraq was the most common deployment location
for U.S. soldiers who either attempted suicide or committed suicide.
I'll bet they're not counted in the Bush Victims toll.
"Karl Rove is leaving on his own two feet,
and I didn't see any shackles today. So, it looks to me like he walked out
like a gentleman, with the full embrace of our president." -- Chris Matthews, on his
knees before Karl Rove again, Link
Excerpt: We know how George Bush spent 10 very long minutes
reading a story to a group of second graders on 9-11.
He entered the classroom room at 9:03, and he
was informed at 9:06 by Andy Card that a second plane had
crashed into the World Trade Towers, but he didn't
finish up with the kids until 9:16.
What is much less familiar, however, is how Bush
spent the next fifteen or twenty minutes.
Bush was slated to give a speech to the Booker
Elementary student body at approximately 9:30.
So, thirty-nine minutes after the first crash
and nineteen minutes after the second crash; and with the fate
of America hanging in the balance, what do you
suppose Bush had in front of him and was working on?
13 minutes before Flight 77 would slam into the
Pentagon, what was Bush doing?
Excerpt: Smoking pot is a guy thing. Guys are the ones
who deal, buy, and smoke. Men are 50 percent
more likely to have smoked marijuana in the last
month than females. (Alcohol use showed only
a 12 percent difference.) All illegal drugs show
this approximate divide between the sexes.
Why don't women smoke pot as much as men?
Are women scared of being out of control?
Did you tell us the answer to 'what percent of
Americans think they're smarter than George Bush'?
Maybe I missed it. Not the most important thing
on the planet, eh, but just curious.
Whore NBC was lying - that question wasn't
in the first show, so I quit watching.
The show is a really bad handjob.
It's not about the correct answer, it's about
what "people" said, so if they ask,
"What percentage of people said Saddam financed
9-11?" the "correct" answer might be 70
Shows like Millionaire and Jeopardy
are about knowing the right answer.
Power of 10 is about how stupid
most Americans are.
Bad thing about your computer issues.... it's
heartsinking to lose your hours of input.
It must be tempting at this point to simply give
up for a week or so.... but thanks
for being there when we need you. Which is about
When I saw that the Wed issue contained zero bites, I was so mad I couldn't
so did what anybody would do. I lit one up and reminded myself how
lucky I am.
Excerpt: What in the world was Hillary thinking when she
attacked Obama for ruling out nukes in
going after Osama bin Laden? And why aren't her
supporters more concerned about yet another
egregious example of Clinton's consistent backing
for the mindless militarism that is dragging this nation to ruin?
There's so much wrongness in those two sentences - who has the time
to straighten this guy out?
First, Obama said he WOULD use nukes, then he said, "Scratch
that - I would not use them." The She advised Obama not to verbalize every thought
that popped into his head - that's good advice.
Answering hypotheticals from a reporter can create Earth-shaking news,
so why do it?
Second, maybe Her supporters aren't concerned about her non-existent
"mindless militarism" because it's the same as Kerry's, Biden's, Edwards's
and the majority of the senate Dems.
No wonder Scheer got his column printed at wehateclintons.com He's making shit up because the truth won't serve his purpose.
Excerpt: Rove was a principal target of congressional
Democrats even before February 2005, when he became
deputy chief of staff in addition to senior adviser
to President Bush. But the combination of the duties
intensified the assault on him. (Pure
horseshit) Prominent Republicans of late
have privately expressed
a desire that he leave government, hoping the
move might diminish the intensity of the Democratic assault.
While Rove's decamping back to Texas is unlikely
to defang the opposition, the mere fact that it is mentioned
as a possibility reveals the ambiguity of his
legacy. Rove is one of the canniest and most successful managers
in American political history. Yet he is viewed
within his own party's ranks, especially on Capitol Hill,
as part of the problem afflicting the
party of Fascist bastards.
Hey Bob, if Rove did such a great job, why is Bush considered the worst
Seriously. Whining about your PC and beggin
for a Mac?
If I could get just two percent of the
daily readers to subscribe,
I'd never have to "beg" for another dime.
I work for free for 98 percent of the readers.
BTW, I notice you're not a subscriber.
Why are you whining if you're reading for free?
In my house (family of four). we have two iMacs,
a Mac Book Pro (that's mine),
four desktop PCs (two of which are mine; yeah,
i'm greedy) and one notebook PC in operation.
We have another two or three "retired" PCs, and
I also have two work laptops.
I'm confused why you think that information would
be helpful to me.
While there are several things I prefer about
the Macs, PCs remain a better overall price/perfromance option.
But if the PC fails to perform, it's value drops

Excerpt: The so-called "mainstream media" in general and
depressingly predicable fashion, of course
embraced Bugliosi's assault on reason with the
glee of ancient archbishops reviewing 1600
pages of a book verifying there "belief" that
the world is indeed flat!
So what are we to make of the thousands of pages
of theories, counter-theories...facts chasing facts,
a Japanese beetle jar...that jug of motor oil
filled with bugs...a physicist's nightmare of neutrinos in a rodeo
in the fifth dimension...I sift through those
pages and I begin to feel like Boo Radley watching Two and
Half Men in Esperanto. It's like watching a David
Lynch film projected on rain clouds in a Tasaday village.
I was taught the truth will set you free...unless
of course you want the truth about who killed JFK.
I think your real problem is the media's love
affair with Tiger, which I can partially understand.
That is correct.
I would think Tiger fans would be sick of the hype, too.
You say you always like to debate, so if you're
up for a Tiger Woods debate
I would love to smack ya around the ring for
You can prove to me why he's not the best player
in the world.
Let me know when we can meet!
There's nothing to debate - as I've said 100 times, if the ball falls
in the hole, it counts.
Tiger doesn't need to explain why the ball fell - if it falls, it counts.
Tiger has won X amount of tournaments and nobody can say he didn't.
You have to remember, Tiger started when he was 2, so at 22 he has 20
It's not a mystery why he's a good golfer.
Here's one example of the horseshit hype
that drives me crazy - headlines from the Tulsa World last week.
One that was up yesterday, but gone now was, ...swear to Koresh,
Barry Switzer play Tiger in OU Football?"
Could it possibly get any more stupid than that?
The Sunday headlines, bigger than V-J Day in 1945, was, "Tiger
Beats the Heat!!!!!!"
Then Monday, after he won, "Tiger
Why can't they be satified with
"Woods wins PGA?"
It reminds me of a nine year old girl lusting after some boy band.
I don't mind the facts, but the hype is enough to turn anyone off.
