This is a story of America. An America beset by tyranny, theocratic skulduggery, 
crippling climate change, diminished petroleum, nature gone awry, and unrelenting war. 
George W. Bush has been declared Emperor, and the United States is on the verge of dissolution. 
To make matters worse, bees are disappearing, aliens are invading, and politicians are in cahoots with bankers.



"Is there anyone Obama would decline to exchange friendly greetings with at a diplomatic encounter?
  It's not that he endangered national security. Rather he diminished his own moral standing, and by extension, ours."
     --  Mona Charen, wishing Obama would be a murdering pyschopath like Fuhrer Bush,    Link

 How dare Obama smile and shake hands at a diplomatic summit.
 What does he think he is - some kind of diplomat?

Texas wants Out


Note to Washington, D.C.: Texas is a sovereign state.

After Gov. Rick Perry's recent comments about some Texans talking secession from the union made news, 
Tejas handjob legislators are considering issuing a "cease and desist" order to the federal government.

"This state prefers, to the greatest extent possible, to control our own destiny," said Rep. Vicki Truitt, 
one of several handjobs co-sponsoring the measure. 'We prefer that federal government limit the amount 
of federal mandates it forces upon the people of Texas.'"

Hey, I think our flag would look great with 49 stars on it.
Or, maybe Tejas could take Florida with them and we could make it 48 stars.

 Subject: beauty queen flap


I haven't watched this crap for years, mainly because I've always thought the winner was for the most part picked 
well in advance to begin with. If you were the odds on favorite, unless you dumped on stage, you pretty much finished 
the race in a walk. Plus, I frankly lost interest. Boring.

I'm more cynical than you.
I'm sure the races are rigged so the finalists are from states with heavy viewership.
You're always going to see NY, CA, FL, TX etc in the finals.
It's not abour fair - it's about getting and keeping viewers.

Do I care about Perez Hilton? Not a damned bit, but I don't feel particularly sorry for Miss Cali, either. 
These bible thumping morons need to learn that increasingly, people in this country are less bothered with 
the notion of gay marriage as time goes on, and her attitude is fast becoming the minority.  The notion that 
gay marriage will cause damage to my marriage, or the union you have with Mrs. Bart is horse hockey and 
is becoming more and more laughable the more these people spout it.

I used to think that gay marriage would not happen in my life time, but now I'm beginning to think differently. 
And it's people like little Miss California and her attitude that are going to bring it to fruition quicker.

Horseshit Propaganda

This is what they want you to think waterboarding is.

Obama skates while Right fumes


A Democratic president thrills a French audience by telling it that America has been "arrogant." 
He brushes aside 50 years of anti-communist orthodoxy by relaxing restrictions against Cuba. 
He directs his attorney general to ease a crackdown on medical marijuana and even plays host
to the Grateful Dead in the Oval Office.

Several times a month in his young presidency, Obama has done things that cause conservatives to bray, 
using the phrase once invoked by Bob Dole, "Where’s the outrage?!"

The outrage is definitely there, in certain precincts of Republican politics. 
What’s notable, however, is that it mostly has stayed there - with little or no effect on Obama.

Dude, you forgot to mention Obama's Plan for White Slavery.

Could we get some reporter to ask Obama
 if he really has a plan for white slavery?

"In Washington, you don't have to convict people of a crime - you don't even have to charge them 
to wreck careers and ruin lives. You can do that through the declaredly and allegedly neutral method 
of investigating them. While the investigation continues, they are subject to legal risk. They must pay 
legal fees out of government salaries. They must suspend other work. All for an uncertain and likely 
prolonged period of time. It might be more compassionate just to shoot them."

If I Torture You Long Enough...
 ...will you say Iraq and Al Qaeda are connected?


The Bush bastards applied relentless pressure on interrogators to use harsh methods on detainees to find evidence 
of cooperation between al Qaeda and Saddam's regime, according to people who were there.

Such information would've provided a foundation for one of Bush's main arguments for invading Iraq in 2003. 
In fact, no evidence has ever been found of operational ties between al Qaeda and Saddam's regime.

The use of torture as part of Bush's rationale to invade Iraq came to light as the Senate issued a major report 
tracing the origin of the abuses and Obama opened the door to prosecuting Bush bastards for approving them.

I suppose, if you torture a guy long enough he'll admit he's Mickey Mouse.

BTW, the supposed "mastermind of 9-11" was waterboarded 188 times.
Did he "admit" that on the 188th try?

"The only people who are in a position to make an authoritative judgment on it should be career,

The Shaming of America
  by Gene Lyons


In a 2002 advisory, Jay S. Bybee, subsequently appointed to the U.S. 9th District Court of Appeals by Bush, notes dryly that 
the practice of "waterboarding" -- recognized as torture since the Spanish Inquisition -- "constitutes a threat of imminent death," 
but says it's nevertheless legal because it doesn't cause "prolonged mental harm" in a psychologically healthy subject.

So here's my question: Would Bybee, in his capacity as a federal judge, uphold a murder conviction in which witnesses had 
been waterboarded? A rape confession? Would it be all right for police to induce confessions by keeping suspects awake 
for 11 days by shackling them naked in a standing position, dousing them with ice water and smashing their heads into a wall? 
How about cramming them into coffin-size boxes for weeks? He thought that appropriate for terror suspects.

If not, why not? Are rape and murder not the gravest of crimes? 
The answer, of course, is that criminal law recognizes that people can be tortured into confessing damn near anything. 
The "intelligence" implications, however, were lost on Bybee and the Bush White House.

Paul Begala said that we executed some Japanese soldiers for waterboarding our soldiers in WWII.
If it was a capital crime in WWII, why is it legal when Bush & Cheney do it?

Smiles For Smirks!
 by Sean Penn


I know President Chavez well.   Whether or not one agrees with all his policies, what is certainly true of Chavez is that 
he is a warm and friendly man with a robust sense of humor. To treat such a man coldly is akin to spitting on him. 
As a country we've done enough of that. Say what you will, but it has only resulted in the self-celebration of our smirking spitters, 
while costing us international respect, American lives, and left wounds in the hands of our children's future. The Cheneys, down to
the O'Reillys and Hannitys and Limbaughs, effectively hate the principles upon which we were founded. They are among the 
greatest cowards in all of American history. I applaud an American President who's tough enough...to smile.

Democrats with Bloody Hands?
 Cornhole accuses Pelosi, Reid, Rockefeller


"If Democrats insist on probing the Bush administration's program of detainee torture, they'd better be careful," 
a senior Senate Republican said Tuesday, "because they might find blood on their own hands as well."

"To sit quietly and to let this happen and then to come back later and say people ought to be prosecuted criminally, 
not just here in the United States but perhaps internationally, to me is inconsistent, to say the least," said Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas).

"If people are going to start looking for responsibility and accountability, I think you'd also have to look at the members 
of Congress who were in those classified settings who approved those same interrogation techniques," Cornyn told reporters.

Having Pride in Torture
 It's only torture if you hate America 
  by Rich Lowry


The debate over the just-released Justice Department memorandums on interrogation techniques ended as soon as 
they were dubbed the "torture memos." Forevermore, they will be remembered as the legal lowlights of a "dark and 
painful chapter in our history," as Pres. Barack Obama put it.

Rightly considered, the memos should be a source of pride. 

Wow, pride in torturing the helpless?
How crazy do you have to be to go down that road?

They represent a nation of laws (Really?) struggling to defend itself against a savage, lawless enemy while adhering
to its legal commitments and norms. (Really?  Torture is legal and normal?)   Most societies wouldn't have bothered
...we carefully parsed each of our techniques to ensure it wouldn't cause "severe physical or mental pain or suffering."

...except for the 130 people who died from those "harmless little pranks."

 Subject: Miss America

I disagree with the Perkel's perception on many levels. 
First of all shouldn't all of America be represented in the decision of who will represent them on the world's stage?
If nowhere else we as Americans should be equally represented no matter how vain the matter. Also Perez Hilton deals in vanity 
so why would he not be a good candidate for judge? Mr. Hilton presented a perfectly poignant question especially with all the 
changes that are taking place in this realm of law. Vermont has legalized gay marriage, D.C. wants to recognize marriages 
performed in other states and the list is growing.  It is a hot button topic whether we like it or not and Mr. Hilton's affinity for 
the issue should not disqualify him from asking about it. Also in her response she used the phrase "in my country" which was 
the worst part of the response to me. Many are against gay marriage in this country but in a time that is meant to be filled with
hope and unity using a phrase like "my country" throws it back to the fear mongers of yesterday that we are all trying to overcome.

Do we need to know the politics of the woman in a bikini?
Do we need to ask every sports figure about guns?
Do we need to ask every rock singer about abortion?
Do we need to ask every movie star about gay marriage?

I'm so old, I remember when lust was just lust.
These days you can't lust without an exhaustive Google search.

 Subject: Obama's timing

Bart, Obama was sand bagging in respect to the investigations. 
He knew that it would be political suicide if he immediately came into office and called for the investigation 
of the former president’s decisions which could lead all the way to the top.  He knew that he would spend his 
entire first (and possibly only) term having to look like Tourqemata trying to get to the truth. 

What he did say without saying it was, “I’m going to let the people drive this issue”. 
And lucky us they have through their representatives.  So now Obama gets to focus his attention on the economy, 
ending the war, providing health care, and all his other goals.  He is a terrific judge of character, he knew that congress 
would carry this ball and if they do send criminals to jail then he can say “our system works, the people have spoken.”

 Subject: Guess who's in on running Beauty Pageants?

Homophobia is one of the last remaining bastions of overt bigotry. 
Having said that, guess who designs many of the pageant dresses, is a 'pageant coach' does pageant makeup, designs the sets? 
You guessed it... 'gays'. 

There is significant crossover between the pageant industry and the gay community. 
So Hilton's place as a judge is not out of left field and Miss California should show a little more gratitude.
