"He is impossible to work with. There are times I say: 'Is there
something more I can do? Have I done something wrong?'
But even his own people tell me he won't compromise."
-- Harry Reid, on why he caves in every f-ing time. Link
But Harry, why should he compromise if he knows for a fact he'll always get what he wants?
Bush might be the stupidest thug to ever sit in the Oval Office, but he can always outwit you.
The pundits on CNN were unanimous: Ed Rollins
was a great guy and his hiring
national chairman for Huckabee’s campaign
gave it a solid jolt of credibility.
But the panel didn’t seem to either know or care that Rollins has withheld evidence
since 1991 about the identity of a top Filipino politician who admitted delivering an
illegal $10 million cash payment to Reagan’s 1984 campaign from Ferdinand Marcos.
Rollins, who ran Reagan’s reelection campaign, mentioned the admission in his book, Bare Knuckles and Back Rooms, recounting how the Filipino said that he had carried
the money in a suitcase to a Republican lobbyist who was representing the Reagan campaign.
"I was the guy who gave the ten million from Marcos to your campaign," the Filipino
told Rollins. "I was the guy who made the arrangements and delivered the cash personally.
...It was a personal gift from Marcos to Reagan."
In his book, Rollins described this stunning news with a light touch.
The first thought that raced through his head, he wrote, was "Cash? Holy shit."
Our insufferable arrogance and foreign policy excesses are garnering us
of international opprobrium. (I looked that up - it means infamy)
We're not a true friend or benefactor to humanity. We take much more than we give.
We force far more egregiously than we gently persuade, in military, economic,
cultural, and ideological terms. Global multitudes have become outraged.
We should nose out of other people's business, engaging them instead only on a
completely fair, equitable, and wholly non-supremacist basis. But Washington incessantly
intervenes to facilitate Wall Street profiteering wherever others simply want to be left alone.
We'll drive expensive SUVs to our own societal funeral because we've kept the rest of
humanity so impoverished that when poor children perish from malnutrition in distant
hopelessness, their parents can't afford even a donkey cart to take their bodies to the graveyard.
I want to thank Chris Dodd who put aside his presidential campaign to
Washington to stop the Republicans and week Democrats like
Harry Reid from
selling out our freedom allowing the government to spy
on us without warrants.
With stories of spying and torture being
revealed I was beginning to think that
everyone in Congress had forgot
what it was to be an American. It is about time
that someone stood up to
Bush and the sell out Democrats who want to sign away
our freedom so
they can start their Christmas vacation.
Finally someone gets it that America is heading towards becoming like
that it take a hero to stand before the Senate and say no
more! I was going to vote
for Hillary and she will probably make the
best president. But even though it will be
a waste of my vote I'm going
to vote for Chris Dodd because he has earned my respect.
Although Obama and Clinton supported Dodd,
Dodd is the one who flew to
to make it happen.
Maybe the rest of the Democrats will wake
up and stop funding the Iraq occupation.
In a rebuke to Bush Fascism, a military commission judge found Monday that
victim Ahmed Hamdan is entitled to a determination of whether he is a POW
by the Geneva Conventions, which govern the rights and treatment of captives in wartime.
"It’s always a positive step when the military commissions proceed in accordance with the
United States’ international law obligations. However, the judge’s decision doesn’t resolve
the flaws inherent to the makeshift commissions system – it’s like sticking a band-aid on a
broken leg,” said Hina Shamsi with the ACLU. “Under the Geneva Conventions, Hamdan
should have received this hearing six years ago, when he was first captured by U.S. forces
instead of now, as an add-on to an entirely new and procedurally flawed process. That we
are still stuck on such preliminary, yet fundamental, issues is a stark reminder of just how
far astray we’ve traveled because of the Bush administration’s policies.”
At a hearing at Guantánamo earlier this month, attorneys for Hamdan, who is accused of
whatever crap the Bush bastards fabricate, asked the military judge to grant their client a
status hearing. Military Judge Keith Allred decided in Hamdan’s favor in a ruling that
became public today. If the judge determines that Hamdan is a prisoner of war, he will
be entitled to trial in a court martial proceeding under U.S. military law.
For someone accused of a crime?
Oh Lawdy Lawd, how low can America sink?

I am so pissed - some man had the nerve to talk about Hillary looking haggard.
Has he looked closely at the men who have been ruining this country?
What the hell does looks have to do with anything?
I can't wait for the stupid idiot who sent you Hillary's photograph to get old,
haggard, wrinkled, dried up with withered testicles hanging like dried figs.
I am so sick of a society (and the man who sent you Hillary's photograph) that is
so shallow that looks is the only thing that counts. Perhaps that is why so many
people are not real fond of your "hot girl" shots at the end of your page.
You might throw in a middle aged or old person every now and then
just for a refreshing break from "so called" beauty.
Am sending you a small donation today but you may not want to take it
for I have some wrinkles and I look pretty damn haggard a lot of the time.
Cathy, believe it or not, I will accept your donation.
"Mortgages have been bundled, so the savings and loan doesn't own the
mortgage anymore. It's owned by some international group, perhaps, or
been bundled into an asset. And so there's hardly anybody to negotiate with." -- Bunnypants, on why the super-rich will get away with their housing pyramid scheme, Link
Note: Those Bush bastards are experts at stealing taxpayer money.
Remember when Kneel Bush stole $1.6 billion from the Silverado Savings and Loan?
Daddy's Justice Department decided that having Kneel say, "My bad" was punishment enough,
and he had to get out of the S&L business - that was his punishment.
So what does Kneel do now? He sells software to his brother's Education Department.
Have these Bush bastards ever done an honest day's work in their lives?
"I'm going to tell you something. We have fabulous health care in America,

A more honest message, one the kids might listen to is this: "Drugs are fun, ...but if you get in too deep they could kill you."
The kids know their parents are lying - that's why they stop listening to them.
A US woman who said she was raped by Cheney's Halliburton thugs testified in Congress,
telling legislators that she was kept under armed guard in her trailer after reporting the attack.
Jamie Leigh Jones, now 23, said that she was gang raped inside the Baghdad Green Zone
in July 2005 while she was working for Halliburton.
The US Department of Justice failed to send an attorney to the House hearing,
which John Conyers blasted as "outrageous" and "unacceptable."
Jones testified that Halliburton-KBR firefighters invited her for a drink. "I took two sips
from the drink and don't remember anything after that," she said.
The next morning Jones woke up groggy and confused, and with a sore chest and blood
between her legs. She reported the incident to KBR and was examined by an army doctor,
who confirmed she had been repeatedly raped vaginally and anally.
The rape was so brutal she is still undergoing reconstructive surgery, Jones said,
Oh, the fun they had - taking turns brutalizing this unconscious woman they roofied,
knowing IF they got caught, Bush and Cheney would protect them from Justice.
From the days of George Washington, every president, every Congress and every
has believed that torture is illegal and violates cardinal American values.
From the days of the Continental Army until today, torture has been opposed by
virtually every commander of every branch of military service. …
Of course, the CIA destroyed the torture tapes that were sought as evidence
by the 9-11 Commission, courts and Congress.
They were destroyed because they were evidence of abuses that the weight of legal
opinion would conclude constitutes criminal conduct under international and
Their destruction probably constitutes obstruction of justice.
Torture is a cancer that metastasizes to everything it touches.
Our international credibility collapses. Our POWs are exposed to grave new dangers.
The destruction of evidence becomes inevitable. The obstruction of justice becomes
a reality and the inevitably failed cover-up is exposed.
Torture corrupts the military chain of command. Civilians who never served in the
military order uniformed officers to commit acts that they strongly oppose.
The only way you can disagree with this is to put party above country.
Why are thousands of officers lining up behind Bush and illegal torture?
Why are thousands of officers will to jeopardize the lives of their soldiers
just so the evil boy in the White House can masturbate to his private torture videos?
If you're willing to give your life for your country,
how can you also be willing to piss on everything it stands for?

Is Jennifer Love Hewitt fat?
This isn't about Hewitt, this is about the media and how they work.
Recently, People Magazine ran this picture of Hewitt in Hawaii.
Not to get personal, but if you make 20-50 million dollars a year
because of your looks, it's kinda incumbent on you to stay in shape.
But the media ran to her rescue, I assume because she's not crazy, not getting arrested and not in fights and not OD-ing on drugs every week.
Fine, we all agree, she's not Paris, Britney, Lindsay etc.
But then shows like Inside Edition and Entertainment Tonight ran this photo,
...and said, "How can anyone call this adorable underwear model fat?"
Isn't that confusing?
They intentionally turned their heads away from People Magazine and put up
this Hanes picture from 2005 and questioned the sanity of her "accusers."
If nothing else, it's just another way the whore media sends THEIR MESSAGE out.
It's not about the news, or what's important, it's about what THEY want you to know.
Maybe People Magazine has a clash with CBS, which runs Hewitt's show, but clearly
there's money to be made by slamming the idea that this wealthy sex object might have
gained weight and there's also money to be made by telling you Hillary is waaaay too old.
Sidebar: Hugh Hefner saw the "Hawaii pictures" and offered her $ to pose for Playboy.
