 Wednesday   July 30, 2008  Vol 2184 - Subtle Incongruity

Quote of the Day

"This election remains about the present and the future, 
  where Iraq's $10 billion a month drain on American 
  pocketbooks and military readiness is just one moving 
  part in a matrix of national crises stretching from the 
  gas pump to Pakistan."

"The president who repeatedly pledged to cut the deficit in half has instead brought it to 
  a record high. Bush squandered a $236 billion surplus, ran up record deficits and added 
  nearly $4 trillion to the national debt. Mr. President, we will be forever in your debt.'" 
       -- Rahm Emanuel,    Link

 This fits the Republican pattern:
 In 1968, Nixon promised to end the Vietnam War - it finally ended in 1975 after
 another 30,000 men died waiting for him to keep his promise.
 In 1980, Reagan promised smaller government and no more hostage crisis, but he spent
 more money than every president from Washington theu Carter combined and 
 gave/sold weapons to the very terrorists he promsed to go all "John Wayne" on.
 In 1988, Bush the Smarter promised a "kinder, gentler," America, then he had
 to pardon Reagan's cabinet so they wouldn't testify about all Bush's crimes.

  In 2000, Bush the Weak and Stupid promised to restore honor and dignity to the Oval Office.

 Can you name any promises that Carter or Clinton failed to keep?

 If the Democrats would just list the f-ing facts we'd never lose an election.
 But they are too scared, too timid and too stupid to fight back.

 Democrats could really use some of Bart's smart-mouth attitude.

Crooked Sen Stevens Caught!
 Why did he sell out for a mere $250,000?


Sen. Ted Stevens, (R-No!!!) the longest-serving Republican bastard and a figure in Alaska politics 
since before statehood, was indicted today on seven counts of failing to disclose thousands of dollars 
in services he received from a company that helped renovate and maintain his home.

Stevens has been dogged by a federal investigation for his dealings with wealthy oil contractor.

It's always the crooked oil bastards - why is that?

The investigation has upended Alaska state politics and cast scrutiny on Stevens and his 
congressional colleague, Rep. Don Young of Alaska, who is also a dirty crook.

Remember Sipro Agnew, Nixon's VP?
He got caught taking a bribe from "big milk," swear to Koresh, for $10,000.
Adjusting for inflation, isn't this about the same thing?

Stevens was handing out multi-million and maybe even billion dollar contracts
and he sold his soul for a few lousy renovations on his home?
The Bush bastards must be laughing at his small-time crimes.

"I could cite four or five actions -- not speeches -- that McCain has taken that elicit 
my admiration, even my awe. First, of course, is his decision as a Vietnam War POW 
to refuse freedom out of concern that he would be exploited for propaganda purposes. 
To paraphrase what Kipling said about Gunga Din, John McCain is a better man than most." 
    -- WaHoPo's Richard Cohen, whoring for McCain,   Link

 How do we know that's true?
 Because McCain says it;s true?
 ..and a "Blow me" up-front to anyone who writes and says,
 "How dare you!" because I don't trust McCain. 

 He sold his soul to Bush and the religiously-insane handjobs.
 How can anyone trust a whore that eager to be president? 

"When I was in my twenties and living in Washington and hanging with young liberal journalists, 
  Richard Cohen was our favorite columnist. No, really. This is apparently what too many years 
  does to your brain; you continue to believe in John McCain's reformist credentials."

Caught on tape: Army recruiters 
threaten high school students
 Those who get fooled could die in Iraq


Irving Gonzales signed up - but only to "pre-enlist" in the Delayed Entry Program. 
DEP allows kids to try out the military without a binding commitment.

But there is a problem: Army recruiters aren't sticking to the program and are bullying 
and even lying to potential recruits and their families to keep them from dropping out. 

After he had a change of heart, Gonzalez said a recruiter told him if he did drop out, 
they would send him to jail.

Scared, Gonzales called Sgt. Glenn Marquette, a supervisor at the Greenspoint Recruiting Station.
Marquette told Gonzales there was no way out.  "You signed a binding contract," he said. 
 "You're AWOL. Absent without leave. You want to go to school? You will not get no loans, 
because all college loans are federal and government loans. So you'll be black barred from that.
As soon as you get pulled over for a speeding ticket, they're gonna see you're a deserter, 
they're going to apprehend you, take you to jail."

But congress made it legal for the recruiters to lie.
When you have a license to lie, lying becomes the norm.

Recruiters can tell you ANYTHING and it's legal.

They can guarantee you'll be stationed in Hawaii and guarantee your job 
will be mixing sexy recruiting videos - and the minute you sign up they can 
legally send your gullible ass to Iraq to spill your blood near Bush's oil wells.

We can't get mad at the military for lying if lying is legal.

Subject: More Bush Bank Failures


In 1981, Reagan/Bush took office and, by 1986, started the great Savings and Loan disaster 
in which 1600 S&Ls failed...mainly due to bad real estate loans.  (Neil Bush, brother of W, 
allegedly made off with $100 million from this, paying a fine of $50,000 and denying all 
wrongdoing -- it helps if your dad's in charge of fixing the problem.)

And he promised he'd never do it again - don't forget that.

In 2001, Bush/Cheney took office and, by 2007, started the great Bank disaster in which....
well, we're still in the middle of it, but we don't know how many will fail.  According to the Fed, 
there are about 9500 banks in the US, of which ~5000 seem to be vulnerable...due to bad 
real estate loans. 

Now that we've nationalized 1600 S&Ls and maybe will nationalize up to 5000 banks, 
let all the rest merge, what's the next target?  Credit Unions?

It may be 2008, but the banking crisis makes it look like 1986. 
The only thing we have going for us is that we're closer to the end of the 
administration that caused the crisis.

Will the idiot voters punish the bastards who raped, stole, tortured and killed?
Or will Cheney orchestrate an event to scare the skittish idiot voters.

Kidding ourselves about our Debt
 by Gene Lyons


Until recently, spending money you didn't have was your patriotic duty. 
Wasn't it Bush who advised Americans to respond to 9-11 by heading to the mall ? 
When the going gets tough, everybody laughed, the tough go shopping.

Never mind that it was also Bush who inherited a $128 billion budget surplus and turned it 
into a $482 billion deficit - an estimate that leaves out the costs of Bush's wars. They're off 
the books, a bit like Enron's money-losing 'partnerships.'  In retrospect, the Enron collapse 
clearly predicted the fiscal consequences of Bushism.

For decades GOP propagandists have endlessly pushed the fantasy that cutting taxes 
invariably brings more revenue into the treasury. Because it's so counterintuitive, 
it makes people who think Rush Limbaugh is an intellectual feel smart.

Does anybody write better stuff than Gene Lyons?

Subject: Presidents and computers

This is the 21st century and presidents need to be able to use computers. 

When asked about his computer skills John McCain says , "I am a illiterate 
who has to rely on my wife for all the assistance I can get", that's scary. 

A person who is computer illiterate is just not qualified to be president. 
We already have an illiterate in the white House. Why should we elect another?
If McCain is too old to use a computer then he's too old to be president.

Marc Perkel
San Bruno, CA.

On last night's news, they said McCain was learning how to use e-mail.
Next, they'll teach him to drink from a cup without a lid on it and next week 
they'll to teach him how to tie his shoes, the poor brainless warmonger.

Canada Melting - The End is Near


A seven square mile chunk of ice has broken off a Canadian ice shelf in the Arctic, scientists said Tuesday.

Derek Mueller, a research at Trent University, was careful not to blame global warming, (Why not?)
but said it the event was consistent with the theory that the current Arctic climate isn't rebuilding ice sheets.

"We're in a different climate now," he said. 
"It's not conducive to regrowing them. It's a one-way process."

So, it's not global warming, but a one-way street of melting ice that we can't get back?

A new e-mail about Obama's tax 
proposals is almost entirely false.


Alert readers may already have noted that this chain e-mail does not provide links 
to any of Obama's actual proposals or cite any sources for the claims it makes. 
That is because they are made up.

This widely distributed message is so full of misinformation that we find it impossible 
to believe that it is the result of simple ignorance or carelessness on the part of the writer. 
Almost nothing it says about Obama's tax proposals is true.   This deception is deliberate.

McCain hired a bunch of Bush bastards to run his campaign.
That means McCain will be a bigger liar/whore than ever for the next 100 days.

They have to lie because the truth does their campaign no good at all.

Will Obama fight back?
Or will be "take the high road" and end up like Gore & Kerry?

Monday, I heard Big Eddie complaingin about the Democrats, saying NOT ONE
DEMOCRAT stood up for Obama when the whore press attacked him for his trip overseas.

"Where are the Democrats? 
  Why don't they come to Obama's rescue?" Eddie asked.

Eddie, is this your first campaign?
Don't you know anything about our Democrats?

They don't come to anybody's rescue - they cower in fear like little bunnies.

Ahmahandjob Begs Bush to Attack


Iran's president Mahmoud Ahmahandjob on Tuesday blamed the U.S. and other "big powers" 
for global ills such as nuclear proliferation and AIDS, and accused them of exploiting the U.N. 
for their own gain and the developing world's loss.

"The big powers are going down," Ahmahandjob told foreign ministers in Tehran. 
"They have come to the end of their power, and the world is on the verge of entering 
 a new, promising era."

 Hey Dude, don't you know killing is the only thing Bush does well?
 Why would you invite the biggest, meanest prick in town to kick your sorry ass?

 Could Ahmahandjob be less mentally stable than Bush?

Is President Bush a Girly Man?


January 2004. Mr. Bush wandered over during Scot Reid's [senior strategist to Canadian 
Prime Minister Paul Martin] chat with the PM.  Reid introduced himself and shook hands with Bush.

The President chuckled. "Well, you got a pretty face," he told the surprised Mr. Reid. He wasn't done. 
"You got a pretty face," he said again. "You're a good-looking guy. Better looking than my Scott anyway."
    -- President Bush in a coquettish bout of eye-batting homosexual diplomatic flirting 1/16/04  Link

Obviously, there's nothing wrong with being gay.
But if you are, you shouldn't spend your career tormenting people just like you.

If the Democrats had any brains (Should I bother to finish this sentence?)
they'd point out that IF the surge has worked, that just proves Bush sent
too few men in the beginning and that boneheaded, arrogant error cost the 
needless deaths of thousands of soldiers - and he needs to answer for that.

But no - as always - they'll refuse to list the facts.

 Iraq pumped 3.5M  barrels daily before Bush invaded
 and then they got their 2003 Halliburton upgrade,
their 2004 Halliburton upgrade,
their 2005 Halliburton upgrade,
their 2006 Halliburton upgrade,
their 2007 Halliburton upgrade,
their 2008 Halliburton upgrade

Bush is stealing up to 6 million barrels of oil per day.
Since oil sells for $140 or more per barrel,
Bush is stealing $840,000,000 every day.

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

but now...
4,125 brave men and women are gone.
