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 ...

I thought about putting this in the Humor category (for about 1/10th of a second), but decided it belongs in Politics.

Three Texas surgeons were playing golf together and
discussing surgeries they had performed. The first said, "I'm
the best surgeon in Texas. A concert pianist lost 7 fingers in an
accident. I reattached them and 8 months later he performed a
private concert for the Queen of England."

The second said, "That's nothing. A young man lost both arms
and legs in an accide...

This is no joke. We get horsie idiots for FEMA, doggie doctors for Womens Health, and f*cktards in the white wash, I mean house.

Planned Parenthood Federation of America Interim President Karen Pearl issued these comments on the appointment:

"The appointment of Dr. Norris Alderson, a man who has spent the majority of his career in the office of veterinary medicine, to the position of acting director of the FDA's Office of Women's Health speaks volumes about the priority the Bush admin...

It astounds me when dubya proclaims, rather pointedly, and in the hopes that people will like him better than the less than 40% who like him today, that in spite of the huge federal spending program that will occur to clean up after Hurricane Katrina, he's not going to raise taxes. Huh????? How can this be, you ask? Well, it can not be. He is a liar. It's typical dubya speak, pulling his speeches out of his ass (Rovian style) to dupe people. But, people are beginning to resent getting dupe...

Myrrander first mentioned this Alaskan bridge pork barrel some time ago. In another blogsite, which I shall not make known, it was just brought up again. When are people going to wake up to the absolute criminal activities of this administration. It's a government gone awry, completely.

It starts:

How can you have $250 Million dollars for a bridge in Alaska that services 2000 people and you can't complete a levee project in NO to protect the people and infrastructure of one of the mos...

I am angry. It seems that when our dubya administration outsources stuff, they can stand back and deny any culpability when the contractor fails. Well, they failed bigtime, just like they are failing in Iraq. Seems they are really good at taking the government money, but when it comes time to show any progress, they are no where to be found. And the money goes missing. I'll be following this story, as I work fairly closely with URS Corporation, as they are Corps of Engineers contractors for...

I did a google search and came upon his website, Link wherein the last date for any activity is August 18th. Nothing since, and nothing else found by google. Anyone here been wondering the same thing?

We lefties have come to the conclusion that he's off eating babies.

Today on Good Morning America, Diane Sawyer asked Bush why he wasn't better prepared for the Louisiana catastrophe considering they KNEW in advance that a huge hurricane was coming.

His response "Well, no one could have anticipated a breach in the levees." Of course, Ms. Sawyer didn't press him any further on the point.

That's such an appauling answer. Of course they new. They just chose to not fund it. It was a catastrophe waiting to happen, and frankly, it's this administration's job ...

Response to AAR-funding scandal bull garbage

Please read something a bit more timely and relevant to the issue you're trying to blow out of proportion. In fact, this "scandal" ended up being all about a slimeball named Cohen and about the Boys and Girls Club bookkeeping improprieties, and had nothing to do with Air America Radio. Per the Cybercast News Service Link:

On June 24, the New York City Department of Investigation (DOI) announced that it was terminating all contracts with GWBGC ...
