"I sometimes get the sense someone dared John McCain to run for president while spouting 
nothing but nonsense, just to see what he could get away with. Today is just such an occasion...
It's hard to imagine even gullible conservatives falling for such a transparently ridiculous pitch. 
McCain thinks he can make permanent (George W.) Bush's tax cuts, and add some new tax cuts 
of his own, and eliminate the AMT, and keep the wars going indefinitely, and increase the 
Pentagon's budget, and eliminate a $410 billion deficit in four years. It's pure fantasy. 
Meet John McCain, the candidate who bases his policies on magic ponies, and his rhetoric 
on the hopes that voters are idiots."

Iraq to US: Go Home


Iraq's prime minister said Monday his country wants some type of timetable for a withdrawal
of American troops included in the deal the two countries are negotiating.

It was the first time that Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has explicitly and publicly called
for a withdrawal timetable - an idea opposed by President Bush.

He offered no details. But his national security adviser, Mouwaffak al-Rubaie, told The Whore AP
that the government is proposing a timetable conditioned on the ability of Iraqi forces to provide security.

"The goal is to end the presence (of foreign troops)," al-Maliki said.

...and end the Bush Money Train?

 Subject: Sunshine won't be free for long

How much you wanna bet that that so called "moratorium on solar energy projects for
assessment purposes" is buying time for Exxon/Mobil, Chevron, BP, Halliburton, and their
friends in the White House to get together and figure out how to charge for sunlight?

Notice the Big Oil advertisements lately? They advertise how "Green" they are and how
pensions are benefiting from Big OIl prices. They are diversifying into alternative energy sources.
I expect that soon, sunlight won't be free for long.

If they can charge for water, they can charge for sunshine. Just like any other commodity.

In the 1600's, England charged a tax based on how many windows a house had.
It resulted in folks bricking up their windows to beat the tax.
You can see this on some of the old buildings over there.

I don't know how it will be done, but I'm confident that where there is a will there is a way.

Traci, you are correct.
Nobody is as greedy as an oil bastard, and with a crooked oil president, they are free
to steal $60 per week from every family in America - and they're doing just that.

The only reason they put a moratorium on solar power was to stop research and
developement and to derail efforts to wean us off terrorist oil.

But why hasn't anybody raised their voice about this outrage?
Where is Al Gore on this?
Where is the Sierra Club and Greenpeace and everybody else?
Why can't anybody do their f-ing job?

Once you buy the equipment - solar power is free - forever.
That's why the Bush bastards and the oil bastards are blocking it.

"The way to mark Helms' passing is to recognize that he prolonged the life of the

Harry Reid Honors racist Prick 


Harry Reid (D-Limp) introduced Senate Resolution 608 - "A resolution relative to the death of 
Jesse Helms" - and the entire Sentate signed on as co-sponsors.

The resolution expresses "profound sorrow and deep regret" over the death of this racist prick 
and claims he "made invaluable contributions to his community, State, Nation, and the World."


When did gay bashing and race baiting become invaluable contributions to any community?

Harry Reid honoring that racist prick?

We gotta get rid of Harry Reid.

"Keep in mind that McCain is promising to do all this while also promising to extend the Bush tax cuts

and the shrinking dollar, and our energy crisis? There really is nothing else to say other than John McCain

Bart, you wrote:

Here in Iowa, we usually raise the best corn on the planet. 
(We can agree to disagree, even though you're wrong.)

Not this year, though.  We were KO'ed by our second 500 year flood in 15 years. 
Look for corn to hit crazy-ass prices this fall.

If this was a sign of a bigger problem, Iowa, the US, and the world would be in trouble.

Good thing for us that global warming is a myth, just like evolution, 
the Big Bang,  and Bush the Lesser's recession.

Shock you Airlines
 Big Brother wants to track you, then shock you


A senior Bush bastard with Homeland Security has expressed great interest in a so-called safety bracelet
that would serve as a stun device, similar to that of a Taser. According to this promotional video found at
the Lamperd Less Lethal website, the bracelet would be worn by all airline passengers.

This bracelet would:
take the place of an airline boarding pass
contain personal information about the traveler
be able to monitor the whereabouts of each passenger and his/her luggage
shock the wearer on command, completely immobilizing him/her for several minutes

The Electronic ID Bracelet, as it's referred to as, would be worn by every traveler
"until they disembark the flight at their destination."  Yes, you read that correctly.

What country is this?   North Korea?   Cuba?

Subject: Obama's Scary Abortion Talk

This is such a betrayal. 
Who is he to determine whether or not someone's mental condition is a determining factor in terminating a pregnancy? 
Once again, we go back to what is between a woman and her doctor and what is best for the health of that woman. 

If my daughter were teetering on the brink of mental illness, and a pregnancy would push her over the edge 
into full blown insanity, I'm all for terminating that pregnancy.  Because frankly, my daughter who is here and now, 
is more precious to me than a child who might not even make it to full term given the harm that someone in the 
throes of mental illness may do to themselves and the child they are carrying. 

The fact that this man would pander to the religious right is troublesome. 
If he will cowtow to them on this issue, what will he say to them about 
our gay family members (and you know we all have them).

Sex Crimes in the White House
 Does Bush masturbate with torture videos?


Sex crime has a telltale signature, even when those directing the outrages are some of the most
powerful men and women in the United States. How extraordinary, then, to learn that one of the
perpetrators of these crimes, Condoleezza Rice, has just led the debate in a special session of the
United Nations Security Council on the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war...

The sexualization of torture from the top basically turned Abu Ghraib and Guantnamo Bay into an
organized sex-crime ring in which the trafficked sex slaves were US-held prisoners. Looking at the
classic S and M nature of some of this torture, it is hard not to speculate that someone setting policy
was aroused by all of this. And Phillipe Sands' impeccably documented Torture Team: Rumsfeld's
Memo and the Betrayal of American Values, now proves that sex crime was authorized and,
at least one source reports, eroticized: Diane Beaver, (Seriously?) the Staff Judge Advocate at Gitmo
who signed off on many torture techniques, told Sands about brainstorming sessions that included the
use of sexual tension, which was "culturally taboo, disrespectful, humiliating and potentially unexpected."

Who is surprised by this?
Bush sees people as objects to be played with and then thrown away.

He can't see a bald man without rubbing his head.

He gave German Chancellor Merkel an unwanted neckrub that bordered on assault.
He used Letterman's producer's sweater to clean his glasses - who does those things?

Bush orders people kidnapped and tortured - he's got severe problems.
Mentally, he's nine years old and he abuses power constantly.

Stand up, punk-ass senators


Warrantless wiretapping of Americans should outrage Congress into banning the practice. 
But, in a display of political expediency, fucking cowardice, the Senate is about to bless it, 
following a similar cave-in by the House last month.

Making matters worse, Obama and McCain - plan to reverse their opposition and vote for 
Bush's rewrite of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.   The bigger of the two reversals is Obama, 
who earlier this year had promised a filibuster to defeat the bill.

It's time for the Senate, and especially Obama and McCain, to halt a serious invasion of personal rights.

Why can't they do the decent thing that most Americans want?

More Monkey Dancing

He said he won't play golf while men 
he sent into battle are dying,
so why does he think an old white guy 
dancing is any more dignified than golf?

Subject: McCain balance the budget? 

John McCain says he's going to balance the budget? What a joke.
He wants us to stay in two of Bush's wars and maybe start a third one 
if Bush and his buddy Joe Lieberman get their way. 

McCain also wants to cut more taxes for the rich in spite of that he 
used to be against cutting taxes for the rich back when he was a "maverick". 

Without having a plan McCain is saying that we're going back to the surpluses 
we had in the Clinton years when the Democrats had the White House. 
Just more of the same old same old election year lies. 

If we are going to elect someone to bring back the Democrat surpluses 
we should elect a Democrat.

Screw the Bigot Helms


L.F. Eason III gave up the only job he'd ever had rather than lower a flag to honor the bigot Helms.

Eason, a 29-year veteran of the state Department of Agriculture, instructed his staff not to fly the U.S. 
or North Carolina flags at half-staff Monday, as called for in a directive to all state agencies by Gov. Mike Easley.

When a superior ordered the lab to follow the directive, 
Eason decided to retire rather than pay tribute to the bigot Helms. 
After several hours' delay, one of Eason's employees hung the flags at half-staff. 

A shot of Chinaco Anejo to a man with the courage to have convictions.

"Burn Notice" returns tomorrow night.
 It's one of the best shows on TV.

 It's about a CIA agent who was fired (Burn notice) without a stated reason,

 It's a great show you can get into without knowing the background.

Obama's Online Problem


The same Internet-fueled power that led to historic gains in organizing and fundraising for Obama's 
campaign is now providing a platform for fiery dissent in a most unlikely place: his own Web site.

Amid criticism from the left that he has eased toward the center on a number of issues in recent weeks, 
he has angered some of his most ardent supporters while triggering something of an online mutiny. 
Thousands are using to angrily organize against him because of a changed 
position on terrorist wiretap legislation that awaits Senate action as early as Wednesday.

The dispute has forced Obama to respond in ways never before seen in a presidential campaign, 
demonstrating the Internet's growing role in the democratic process and the live-by-the-click, 
die-by-the-click potential it holds for politicians."

A new online group named "Senator Obama - Please Vote NO on Telecom Immunity - Get FISA Right," 
now with more than 22,000 members, it is the largest group on

It's slightly annoying that Obama is pretending he hasn't changed.

"Look, let me talk about this whole notion that I am shifting to the center. 
  The people who say this apparently haven't been listening to me."   Link

When you promise to filibuster FISA, and then decide to vote for it,
the problem isn't that we're not paying attention.

When you say the mental health of a woman isn't important,
the problem isn't that we're not paying attention.

Subject: FISA bastards

July 9th 2008. A dark day in America. Again.
What a complete and total failure of leadership on the part of Democrats.

We, the people, have been completely betrayed by our Party regarding FISA and telecom immunity.
Not only has Bush accomplished everything he wanted to do - and brought the country to it's knees 
by doing so- he's done it with the approval and complicity of Democrats. 

The true level of his crimes will never be known - thanks to Democrats who are afraid of having
their own crimes exposed.  Because what other reason could there be for them to vote for this bill?

It is not about 'security', it is not about 'protecting the people'. 
It is about FEAR. And that fear belongs to members of the Democratic Party that voted for this bill.

That Democrats would toss over the rule of law, ignore the Constitution, 
and give Bush everything he wants in this is beyond the pale.

Unforgivable. Shameful.

Those Democrats sicken  and disgust me.

Since oil sells for $130 or more per barrel,
Bush is stealing $780,000,000 every day.

No wonder they were so eager to start a war,
It's the biggest theft in Earth's history.
