This newspaper article pretty much sums up why I hate this administration. It's not that the dubya dummies created all these messes, but rather that they refuse to address the issues. They refuse to acknowledge that there are issues. They just parrot these lame and lazy reasonings as to why the US is such a grand nation, the best on the planet, then do what they can to pilfer the hell out of the economy, lie like rugs over a failed war effort, rape the environment so corporate moguls can get ...

Seems that according to CBS, dubya dumbass' ratings are hitting new lows. Before you all get all wadded up that polls are meaningless, I'm sure that if it was the other way around, you'd be posting the results every freakin' day. So please, spare me the hypocrisy. In fact, the neocon loving hypocrites are a distinct minority in this country now. About goddamm time. Some people are just a little slower to see what's right before their faces than others.

Some poll results:

Dubya Dumbass did it again. He found yet another crony to hoist and foist upon the American people. This time, it's none other than Harriet Miers. Ya wonder how he finds these idiots, how he dredges from the bottom of the cesspool to come up with such crooks, but it's really second nature to him. That's where the dubya dumbass resides. In fact, Miers was head of a law firm in Texas that had to pay out $millions in fines for defrauding investors. And, as head she was a managing partner, on...

Yearly US Budget Deficit or Surplis
1961-2004 (in $Billions)

Note that is is constructed using data from the Congressional Budget Office's own website. Very teling visual about how voodoo economics, ie or aka Trickledown, ie or aka Reaganomics, is a proven failure. What's missing here is a visual showing where the money went. That is, based on the voodoo economics of tax cuts to "strengthen" the economy, we would like to know how much of this borrowed money went to whom, and for what? C...

I found this exchange kind of interesting. I'm sure you all will, also. This pretty much speaks for itself. Needless to say, particular personal stuff was removed.

A letter from Rich:

FYI - Like the bumpersticker says, "If you're not angry, you're not paying
attention."

My reply to him:

As always, great hearing from you. I just want you to know that I actually have, really, that bumper sticker on my car right now.

I've read about that issue. ...

Randolph T. Holhut: 'The myth of competence in the Bush White House'
Posted on Thursday, September 29 @ 10:17:38 EDT

DUMMERSTON, Vt. - Do you remember how, right after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, we heard all the pundits talk about how great it was that we finally had grownups in charge of our government in a time of crisis?

Does anyone still believe that nonsense now? Who would, especially when one considers the breathtaking incompetence of the Bush administration, as well as the cronyi...

Because DeLay was indicted with an offense, he had to step down from his leadership position in Congress. What a flinking shame............................................ NOT.

Things are really going well in Iraq. We're making so much progress. Repukes should be so furking (JU acceptable swear word) proud. An excerpt from today's CNN article:


Thursday's blasts were the most deadly single-day string of bombings since September 14, when more than 100 people were killed in Baghdad in strikes claimed by Al Qaeda in Iraq, the group led by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.

Earlier, the U.S. Marine Corps reported that five U.S. Army soldiers were killed Wednesday in Ramadi by...

Are the reports true that the dubya dummy has gone back to the bottle? He's a drunk and a druggie who was reportedly sober for a number of years. Is he hittin' the booze again? I wouldn't be the least bit surprised.

Some people say that any president who takes a drink now and again is not a problem. I agree. EXCEPT dumbya. A sober drunk cannot take one drink. Regardless, he's out of control, anyway. I am not the least bit surprised. He's got blood on his hands, and blood money in t...

Saddam's trial begins on October 19, 2005. It's going to get very interesting, because in order for him to put on any kind of appropriate defence, he will have to bring up some things that our government likely wishes would not be brought up. But, the defence team, if they are going to provide a vigorous defense, must insist upon some historical facts. Of course, none of these thing will actually serve to condone the atrocities committed by Saddam, but he will drag down some significant Ameri...

I was thinking about writing an article about why I think conservatives are conservatives, why republicans are republicans and why in hell they cannot, or refuse to put together the facts that would make the sanest of people go hmmmmmmm.........................

In other words, it seems to me that republicans refuse to accept facts, but instead rely solely on some kind of preconceived notion of morality, that being their definition of morality, in spite of and regardless of facts that would ...
