"The Hitler comparison should be shouted from

Torquemada, Beelzebub comparisons and all the rest. If it struts like a Nazi, talks like Nazi,
tortures like a Nazi and wages illegal war like a Nazi... it's not a duck."

Excerpt: Determined to gain the upper hand in Iraq and
Afghanistan, Bush has turned large portions
of the two countries into near free-fire zones
where any resistance, even in populated areas,
is met with aggressive tactics that often kill
Though more attention has been focused on trigger-happy
Blackwater "security contractors,"
Bush's military strategy has employed its own
indiscriminate firepower - from loose "rules of
engagement" for U.S. troops, to helicopter gun
ships firing on crowds, to jet air strikes,
to missiles launched from Predator drones.
For instance, the U.S. military acknowledged on
Oct. 23 that an American helicopter killed 11
people, including women and children, after someone
allegedly shot at the helicopter as it flew
over the village of Mukaisheefa, north of Baghdad.
Iraqi police and witnesses said 16 people died,
apparently as some rushed to help a wounded man,
the New York Times reported. The helicopter gunners
presumed the wounded man to be an insurgent
and thus opened fire on the locals who came to
his aid, according to witnesses.
Excerpt: Bush's bloodu quagmires in Iraq and Afghanistan
could cost taxpayers a total of $2.4 trillion by 2017
when counting the huge interest costs because
combat is being financed with borrowed money,
according to a study released on Wednesday.
With Fuhrer Bush indicating a large contingent
of U.S. troops likely will be dying in Iraq and Afghanistan
for many years to come, the nonpartisan CBO estimated
the total tab for the wars from 2001 through 2017.
CBO estimated that interest
costs alone from 2001-2017
could total more than $700
So far, Congress has given Bush $604 billion for
the two wars, with about $412 billion spent in Iraq.
In Iraq alone, the United States is spending
about $11 billion and 88 soldiers a month, with costs escalating.
Bush is seeking another $196 billion for combat
in Iraq and Afghanistan through September 30
and Congress is expected to roll over and give
him what he wants yet again.

Speaking of whores, I wonder how Johnny Damon feels?
He played for Boston, but after they won the World Series, Steinbrenner
offered him a mountain of gold
and an ocean of alcohol and tons of good press if he'd whore
out and play for the New York Moneybags.
Now, Boston's in the World Series again and Johnny Damon's at
home, watching the game on TV,
counting all those millions of greenback Steinbrenner gave him
- or was he paid in silver?
The reason he is still smiling is that what we
perceive as failed policies and initiatives are actually successful ones.
This is because his actual goals are usually
quite different than his stated goals.
Take Iraq. He went over there without an
exit strategy because he wants the war to last forever.
Why do you think he let the insurgents steal
hundreds of tons of high grade explosives?
Why did he let Bin Laden escape?
Shit, the list could go on forever.
Excerpts: Rudy is a hothead and a grandstander, even a
bit of a dictator at times. These qualities have dominated
the story of his mayoralty that most people know.
As that drama was unfolding, however, so was a quieter
story, driven by Giuliani's instinct and capacity
for manipulating the levers of government. His methods, like
those of the current White House, included appointments
of yes-men, aggressive tests of legal limits, strategic
lawbreaking, resistance to oversight, and obsessive
secrecy. As was also the case with the White House,
the events of 9/11 solidified the mindset underlying
his worst tendencies. Embedded in his operating style
is a belief that rules don't apply to him, and
a ruthless gift for exploiting the intrinsic weaknesses in the system
of checks and balances. That's why, of all the
presidential candidates, Giuliani is most likely to take the
expansions of the executive branch made by the
Bush administration and push them further still.
The blueprint can be found in the often-overlooked
corners of his mayoralty.
If it seems odd to your readers that the GOP would
nominate a three times married,
cross dressing, mobbed-up baby killer, they should
listen to the GOP voters.
They are saying loud and clear that the only reason
they are willing to vote for Guiliani
it is because they think he is the only one who
can beat Hillary. And they hate Hillary
sooooooo much, that they would skull blank their
own children with the blank of Satan
if it would keep Her out of the White House.
Which brings me to my point. How can it
be that the only people who seem to hate Hillary
as much as the Southern Baptist-GOP-Mouth Breathers
Brigade are your readers?
Have they really thought through the implications
of jumping in bed with this crew?
Some people want a pony so bad their logic escapes them.

As an almost daily reader for years, I love your
website, and intend to become a subscriber when I become
fully employed and healthy again after several
surgeries, and huge medical expenses. That's a promise.
But, I have a comment to make about voting for
Hilary Clinton. Here's what turned me off about her
(and about every other millionaire politician
in Washington): When she was asked, a few years ago,
to try out a new hybrid car, and to take it for
a spin, she laughed and declined, exclaiming,
"Gosh, I don't really remember how to drive.
I haven't driven a car in years."
That told me that she isn't one of the REAL people
anymore-- the laborers, the middle class, the daily workers
---who often have to drive to work (with $3.50
a gallon gasoline prices and rising) and sit in traffic sometimes
for hours, looking at "road rage" all around.
She's out of touch, as are most of our legislators. It only takes
quick glance at their voting records and what
they are voting one to determine that they are not truly "representatives"
of the regular Americans. I agree with
you, however, that any change is more than welcome, but I'm afraid that
will only be more of the same old "BS"---representing
the multinational corporations feeding at the public trough.
Hilary----a member of the board for WALMART?
Give me a break. A faithful reader---
---Charlie D. in CA
Charlie, take a breath...
First, she's been under Secret Service protections since 1991 or so.
I doubt they let her drive
for security reasons, and if, Koresh forbid, she had a wreck because
she was rusty from not driving,
the whore press would call her "another Britney" and that would not
help get her elected.
I understand what you're saying about "out of touch," but every
president is rich.
You can wish things were different, but we gotta face the facts
as they are.
"I don't know what is involved in the technique."
-- Michael Mukasey, Bush's Fascist nominee for AG, when asked about water-boarding,
"It is like saying you do not rob banks, but
then defining bank robbery in such a way that it does not include walking in
with a gun and demanding money from the cashier."
-- Jonathan Turley, (Is Turley still a dirty-legged whore?)
Excerpt: A newly formed political action committee is
aiming to stop Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary by
calling into question her progressive credentials.
"We think there are other Democratic presidential candidates
who are both more progressive and have a better
chance of beating the Republicans than she does," said the
president of Democratic
Courage, Glenn Hurowitz. He declined to tip his hand on the group's
Clinton, but said the PAC plans a paid media
campaign in the early primary states to make its position clear."
Remember what I'm always saying about "follow the money?"
I predict, by the end of the year they will have millions of
dollars - see how democracy works?
If you hate Hillary, the dollars just flow to you like water
If your goal is to stop the Democrtic front-runner, you'd better
get some more bank accounts
because the FDIC insurance is only good up to $100,000 in each
I wonder how many bank accounts Kos has,
making $10,000 per day?
Let's keep an eye on this site, and see how many millions

Bart, I watched Rep. Stark on C-span, it seems
like the Bushies control the House
and many of our Democrats when they caved in,
are they all being spied on?
That theory has come up many times, but how guilty
can they be?
If bad people watched my every move, tapped my
phones, read my e-mails etc,
the worst they could come up with is some minor
dabbling in God's fine flowers,
so what crimes are all the Democrats guilty of
to make them vote with the bastards?
Bart, is that letter you got from THE real Chuck
The REAL Chuck Norris is a religo-nut job and
he has decided to bless GOP candidate
and cloud being ejaculator Hucklebee with his

expected some sort of disclaimer after Chuck
Norris's name aka "This is not the REAL Chuck Norris.

On November 2 I'm going to a political event in
Oakland California where (hopefully)
I will get to talk to Bill Clinton. It's my first
$2300 donation to a candidate but I think
it's important to get the message of reality
into the Clinton campaign.
I'm paying for it with my own funds because even
though I could probably get away with it,
Church of Reality money needs to be isolated
from politics. Although I'm not exactly rich
I'm doing well enough to afford this.
Unless something very strange happens it's clear
to me that Hillary is going to be our next president.
I want to approach them and try to get them to
embrace the idea of making reality part of their political
identity. I'm trying to figure out how best to
accomplish this. There will no doubt be a lot of other
important people there. Any suggestions are appreciated.
