"Fox News tells us that torture is wonderful,
that we have saved humanity because we torture, and that Jack Bauer is a real-life hero because he
always foils the bad guys and saves American lives because he tortures them into revealing where the ticking
time bomb is! These 'religious' people must be Devil-worshipers because Fox News tells us that God wants us
to torture people. After all, if God didn’t support torture, why did he allow his son to be tortured to
death on the cross?"

"I'm comfortable with Obama's Rethug dinner
because while Obama seems to be listening to a lot of people, and working bits of what they're recommending
into his mix, his basic approach is still the reasonably progressive one he suggested it would be during the campaign...and
yet right-wingers in particular seem easily lulled by his willingness to listen, and ready to declare
him a surprisingly right-wing guy -- after which he turns around and says, 'Oh yeah, I'm still closing Gitmo, ending
torture, doing diplomatic outreach to enemies, and, oh, retaining the capital gains tax. But it's been great talking

Excerpt: Would it be rude to ask whether the Republicans
have any new proposals to save the country from this worsening recession?
The question arises not because anyone expects
the minority party to burst forth with creative ideas, but because conservatives
in Congress and the media seem so determined
to thwart or stall the economic stimulus plans of President-elect Barack
To listen to the Senate Republicans and their
leader, Mitch McConnell, (R-Bitch) is
to hear once more the old nostrums of tax cuts
for corporations and the wealthy, along with
pleas for "bipartisan input" and complaints about "wasteful spending."
Republicans chime in with the same drearily familiar
themes, as the minority leader, John Boehner, (R-Big
Cancer) warns against
"irresponsible spending on government programs"
and urges the new administration to put any stimulus bill online for "at
one week" while making sure there are no "special-interest
Leaving aside the boilerplate about wasteful federal
spending -- which never troubled the Republicans when they were legislating
record deficits -- these recommendations seem
harmless and pointless. Putting the stimulus bill online for public comment
like something Obama might want to do. He scarcely
needs advice about communicating with the public from the other party.

Excerpt: At the risk of repeating myself, Israel remains
a foreign country. Pointing that out during its brutal and misbegotten
invasion of Lebanon infuriated some readers,
although an Israeli government commission later reached similar conclusions.
Now that Israel's blasting Gaza to smithereens,
one is again expected to give unquestioning assent. So here's my question:
As an American citizen, exactly what's in it
Shocking, I know. When Palestinian women, children
and elderly noncombatants are being killed in impressive numbers,
one is expected to salute the Israeli flag. Virtually
all American politicians do. According to a recent survey, fully 71 percent
of Americans sensibly favor taking neither side
in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Many know tragedy when they see it: two peoples
claiming the same land, both with valid claims,
both infatuated with the romantic ideal of
an ancestral homeland, each prone to religious fanaticism, and each tempted to see the other as evil, subhuman
and fit only for slaughter.
Religion is not the answer - religion is the problem.
Here in Oklahoma, we have a toxic shithole called
Chat piles left behind by the mining companies
contain lead dust that has blown around the town. Elevated lead levels in children in the town
of Picher have led to learning disabilities and other problems. The lead and zinc have also seeped into groundwater,
ponds, and lakes, many of which still are used by children for swimming. Since the children
of Picher have been found to have elevated levels of lead in their bodies, the EPA has since declared Picher
to be one of the most toxic areas in the United States.
You and I wouldn't move to Picher because it's
a toxic shithole, but what if your religion said
that land was sacred and you should want to live
their to honor some non-existent Cloud Being?
Wouldn't you use the brain God gave you to say
"Fuck that!" ?
So wouldn't you then agree that Israelis are crazy
to stay where they are?
We've recently buried over 4,000 dead soldiers
partly because Israel loves their sacred, toxic sand.
Why do some people allow religious insanity to
run their lives?
Why do all American politicians favor allowing
religious insanity to run their lives?
Subject: You're asking
a question, here's my answer
Bart, you wrote:
> The fact is that al Qaeda can hit us anytime
they want to but they've CHOSEN
not to. > What else explains that but a deal between
Bush and Osama?
Al Qaeda as a name and as an organization was
invented by the US. The media has lied, lied, lied about Al
A (largely) fictional group was blamed for the
attacks of 9/11. Is that a deal between Bush and Osama? Yes.
So you're right. But I'm not sure you agree
that Al Qaeda is American born and the importance of this fact.
There are millions of people who are sympathetic
to Osama's message of anti-Americanism and Death to Israel etc.
You can say that idea is "American born," but
please don't tell me there's no al Qaeda because somebody is
blowing up trains and nightclubs and hotels around
the world and they're not all Americans.
The people who invented Al Qaeda were the ones
who destroyed the World Trade Center.
There were no hijackers. There were no
planes. The videos you saw on TV have been
thoroughly analyzed and shown to be faked.
You know I love you, but that's crazy talk. Somebody
may have convinced themselves there were no planes,
but they haven't convinced me and
they haven't convinced 90% of Americans. I admit, the majority is
often wrong - and you're free to believe what
you want - but don't tell me this "fact" has been accepted.
An aluminum airplane would crumple against a steel
building if it flew into it. It wouldn't melt right into the building
hot knife cuts into butter, entering the building
fully undamaged and then explode. The plane would begin to be destroyed
exact moment that it hit the building. Newton's
Laws do not wait to take effect. They are in effect 100% of the time.
As soon as the
plane hit the building, it would decelerate,
twist, crumple and flatten out like an aluminum can getting crushed and
explode on the
outside of the building, much of it falling directly
to the ground.
Newton is more consistent than you.
If you throw a bullet at my chest, it will hit
and fall to the ground like you say those planes would.
But if you fire that bullet towards me, my chest
will swallow them just like the WTC swallowed those 9-11 planes.
How can you win a debate by telling 200 million
Americans that their eyes lied to them?
If a plane did hit the WTC and set it on fire,
the jet fuel would be largely consumed in the first moments of the explosion
and then fully burn out in five or ten minutes.
What would have remained is an office building on fire. Office buildings
made of steel that are on fire do not explode
into bits. Fire is incapable of causing the destruction seen.
Excerpt: On the night before Obama is sworn in, his inaugural
committee will host a series of dinners honoring
Biden, Colin Powell, and John McCain.
At the dinner, McCain will be introduced by his BFF Lindsey
Graham (R-Gay). But McCain's goomah, Sarah Palin,
will not be among those hailing McCain.
McCain represents the past and Sarah Palin is
looking towards 2012 as her coronation.
Besides, the McCain camp trashed her so why should
she honor the old coot?
However, she did offer to pay for the refreshments.
For the record, I think it's a stroke of
genius for Obama to honor McCain.
It's going to be a little harder for McCain to
trash Obama after this dinner.
If McCain does go crazy and attacks Obama, he'll
look even smaller and more petty
than he already does so Obama is making a savings
deposit with this move - clever.

strip mall, I can’t help but think, 'Gee, I wonder if that was another moron that voted

Voters are sooooo stupid.
A non-rich American voting for the Rethugs is like a slave voting
for Robert E Lee.
Listening to Bush tonight reminds me that from
the moment he stole the election 8 years ago that we are but days
to the end of the long nightmare. I suppose if
your principles are having no principles then it can be said the Bush
stuck to his principles. I now count down the
days and the hours till he's gone.
Having said that, it's clear to me that listening
to Bush speak that some part of him knows what a miserable failure he was.
But it's too bad he isn't smart enough to really
comprehend the damages he has done to the human race as a whole.
And even though I am an Atheist, I pray that
Bush will not make it worse in the remaining few days of his miserable
presidency between now and when he's gone.
> Three virgin-seekers could've make Christmas
a WHOLE lot worse but they chose > to let us have a peaceful Christmas which
makes me think a deal was made with Osama.
Yes. But it's not a new deal. Osama
earned his nut working for the CIA. You can choose to believe
that at some point in time he became a rogue
agent, but if you think he's got a deal going on now,
why do you think there was an interim period
where no deal was in effect?
Osama is religiously insane.
Bush the Smarter put our pig-footed troops on
sacred Saudi soil and that pisssed him off.
Do you agree that Osama used to work for the CIA
when he was with the Mujahadeen in Afghanistan?
Of course - Reagan
the Rapist and Bush armed them and trained them.
Everybody but the braindead, gullible Amnerican
public knows that.
You seem to agree that he is in cahoots with the
bad guys now.
Why would you think that somehow he was acting
alone on 9/11?
Why do you still blame Osama for 9/11?
Osama took "credit" for 9-11.
They say he trained the handjobs who flew the
planes into the WTC.
"Many people will disagree over many aspects
of the Bush legacy, but on Katrina... It is impossible to challenge what so many of us witnessed firsthand,
what the entire country witnessed through the images on our television screens day and night. Mr.

security, the economy, and the rest of your legacy. Those debates will continue for years to come. But
on how you handled Katrina, there is no debate." -- CNN's Campbell Brown, speaking

Excerpt: Bush's great mistakes have been those of an optimist
who believed in social engineering on a global scale... What was missing
from Bush, oddly, was the conservative's abiding
skepticism of big ideas and grand designs. He talked often of Lincoln but
not to recognize how deeply pessimistic Lincoln
was, and how desperately he hoped to escape a civil war. It is impossible
Lincoln saying "bring it on," or even thinking
If the sunny, ever-hopeful Bush needed to read
anything from American history, it was the passage in the Federalist Papers
James Madison cautioned against optimism: "If
men were angels, no government would be necessary." The conservative optimist
leaves the stage with the same determined, instinctive
sense of purpose he had when he arrived. What a challenge he will be for
the historian bold enough to tell this poignant
and painful story.
We knew, long before Bush stole power, that he was a moron but we didn't
The idiotic American voter fell for the "I'd like to have a beer with
that guy" horseshit
because Al Gore sounded a little too smart and a little too wonkish.
The clueless Democrats had - and still have - no idea how to frame a

Republicans said we needed to coddle the super-rich so they might get
in the mood to
hire somebody. The trouble is, the chose NOT to hire anybody
and here we are..
But if you give the middle class a break, they'll go out and buy stuff
which lowers inventories
which causes factories to hire more people to replenish their stock
to meet the increased demand.

Excerpt: I watched a hand of ‘the best damn poker show’
on TV a couple nights ago and it was very illustrative of the tactic
of putting your opponent on a range of hands
based on their actions in a hand, and then reacting correctly to it.
It also featured very incorrect comments by Phil
Hellmuth and Annie Duke.
The hand opens with Christina, generic pretty
woman in an unfortunate hoodie, raising Under-The-Gun (First to act pre
to 500 with A-Q, blinds were 100-200 at this
point, every folds to John, a generic guy in a T-Shirt, who calls the 500
Annie doesn’t like this play, saying he should
raise or fold. The last thing on earth you should do with a hand as middling
is re-raise somebody pre-flop, then they can
blast you with a re-raise back and push you off the hand. So I guess she
a fold here, which is a fine play, but calling
for a flop in position isn’t bad either.
