    The reason Americans don't complain about an erosion of Rights could be they don't care enough to know what they are to begin with. The public largely does not care about the Patriot Act nor what the fuss is over at the NSA. Pro or Con on these issues, you cannot discuss them intelligently without knowledge. See: http://today.reuters.com/news/articlenews.aspx?type=domesticNews&storyid=2006-03-02T000634Z_01_N01474965_RTRUKOC_0_US-LIFE-FREEDOMS.xml The public would likely be happy if we threw out the Bill Of Rights and simply replaced it with two rights they all seem to care about: 1.

     Little noticed in the kerfuffle over the takeover of major US ports by Dubai Ports is the key role being played by former Democratic Party leaders. Lobbying firms associated with ex-Democratic Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle and Madeleine Albright (Clinton’s Secretary of State) have been working (paid subscription only link) to secure approval of the purchase by Dubai. One would think that our leaders, even when out of office, would care more about their nation than their bank accounts.This hopefully will give impetus to a bill (drafted by Republican Congressman Mike Rogers of Michigan) working its slow way through Congress that would bar...

    Al Gore has become somewhat of an American idol this past few years. After his departure from Washington in 2000 the ex-presidential candidate has switch-backed across the county giving thundering sermons to over-flowing auditoriums and town halls. He’s railed against the Republican agenda in Iraq, denouncing President Bush and the neocons at every turn. Gore is fast becoming the antiwar celebrity du jour, capturing the imaginations of many who fear the vicious Bush cartel. “Normally, we Americans lay the facts on the table, talk through the choices before us and make a decision.

    Just as they did following the memorial service for Sen. Paul Wellstone in 2002, Republican operatives and their acolytes in the media are now claiming that there was something inappropriate about the manner of how those who best knew Coretta Scott King mourned her passing. So great is the determination to protect George Bush from even the mildest expressions of dissent that commentators rushed to television studios Tuesday even before the service for King was over to denounce former President Jimmy Carter, the Rev. Joseph Lowery and Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin for expressing sentiments not usually heard by this president....

    It’s amazing that President Bush continues to pretend the federal government has no responsibility for illegal immigration and its effects. The 2007 federal budget he presented proposes killing the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program that helps states pay for jailing illegal immigrants. That’s nothing new. Bush has done the same thing in past years. It’s just amazing that at this point, with all the attention illegal immigration has received lately, the president continues to take the view that it’s individual states’ and communities’ tough luck that Washington can’t or won’t come up with comprehensive reform of the nation's broken immigration...

Absolutely not," says Michael Lewellen, BET's senior vice president for corporate communications. "We weighed a number of different options.

    WASHINGTON -- Pity the poor Democrats. Five years of George W. Bush in office have driven them to distraction. Their most audible advocates have developed "Mad Mule Malady." The symptoms are identical to "Foot-in-Mouth Disease," and those running for office under the Democrat Party banner this year are likely to find their colleagues' increasingly vicious verbal gaffes to be both memorable and damaging. The onset of their illness could not be more instructive. As leading Democrats are attacking Republicans, al Qaeda is planning to attack America.

Hillary Clinton called for United Nations sanctions against Iran as it resumes its nuclear program and faulted the Bush administration for "downplaying" the threat. In an address Wednesday evening at Princeton University, Clinton, D-N.Y., said it was a mistake for the United States to have Britain, France and Germany head up nuclear talks with Iran over the past 2 1/2 years. Last week, Iran resumed nuclear research in a move Tehran claims is for energy, not weapons. "I believe that we lost critical time in dealing with Iran because the White House chose to...

The Berlin brothers, who make up the core of Living Things, go much further. They were arrested at the Republican National Convention. Their show sometimes includes skits in which women wearing Bush and Cheney masks and dominatrix outfits simulate sex onstage.

"People were allowed to die," said Leah Hodges, who told the panel she still doesn't know if her brother survived the hurricane. She likened what happened to New Orleans, and many of its black residents, to "genocide and ethnic cleansing."

The quiz asked students to pick the proper words to complete sentences. One example: "I wish Bush would be (coherent, eschewed) for once during a speech, but there are theories that his everyday diction charms the below-average mind, hence insuring him Republican votes." "Coherent" is the right...

    Bush Signs $100 Billion Food and Farm Bill 1 hour, 5 minutes ago President Bush on Thursday signed a $100 billion food and farm spending bill that includes a two-year delay on labels telling grocery shoppers where their meat comes from. The legislation postpones mandatory meat labeling until 2008. Originally sought by Western ranchers and required by law in 2004, country-of-origin labeling has stalled under pressure from meatpackers and supermarkets who call it a record-keeping nightmare. The measure also overrides a court ruling on whether products labeled "USDA Organic" can contain

    According to a Wall Street Journal/NBC poll, 54 percent of Americans think President Bush values party loyalty and personal friendship over competence. The poll was prompted, as if you didn’t know, by Bush’s habit of appointing friends and retainers to major jobs in his administration. Some of these seem qualified enough: Condi Rice, Alberto Gonzales. Others seem more questionable, none more so than Michael Brown and Harriet Miers. In one sense this is nothing new for Bush. From the start, his administration was marked by a web of family connections, and certain members of the press were quick to cry...

Brown's departure, Landrieu said, "will not alone solve all the problems that plagued the federal government's response to Hurricane Katrina and the devastating floods that followed the levee breaches." In a statement posted to her Web site, the Louisiana democrat insisted that the Bush White House still needed to be held responsible. "The people of our nation, and...

Tim Russert, Anderson Cooper, Ted Koppel and Shepard Smith were among the stars. The mute button seemingly in place since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks has been turned off.

Perhaps the initiative came from Celine's people. Which raises the question of why on earth the lady who gave us show tunes from the sinking of the Titanic really thought that...

    If it's August and the press is languishing in Crawford, Texas, it's time for the annual Bush vacation media bash. This means that unless there's a kidnapping or runaway bride story to hold the nation's interest, the media will instead launch into their favorite summer pastime; turning the president's visit home into a four-week sentence of derision and contempt. The media seem not only offended that the president has the audacity to take a month off but that he persists in doing so in the middle of media nowhere. Unlike Bill Clinton who, until he left office, had no private...

    Last week the president admonished conservatives for daring to suggest that Attorney General Alberto Gonzales would be an unacceptable Supreme Court nominee because of an opinion he wrote in a Texas parental-notification case while serving on the Texas supreme court, and because of his role as White House counsel in watering down the administration's brief against reverse discrimination in admissions policies at University of Michigan. Keep in mind, conservatives have been respectful in their criticism of Gonzales. There have been no personal attacks or false accusations. And these are the same conservatives who went to bat for Gonzales when the...

    The New York Times surely once had an institutional policy against cronyism. But between then and now, something must have happened to the Times, or to ethics. Maureen Dowd, whom I actually like when she gets off politics, published a collection of her Bush-bashing columns and the Times, her paper, got it quickly reviewed and (mostly) praised. I thought that strange. Maureen is a big girl now and she ought to hunt and fight for coverage and praise like the rest of us. Stranger still is the saga of Tom Friedman. Those of us in the writing and opinion business...

    With each passing day, the Democrats prove once again that they are primarily interested in furthering their efforts to hurt the President of the United States. In doing so they seem totally indifferent to the fact that such efforts hurt America period! Who can argue that Democrats are continuing to politicize a war on terror that took our troops to Afghanistan and ultimately to Iraq, or that this politicization is not only making the war more difficult for those troops, but also emboldening America’s enemies to continue the fight worldwide? Our country is in no way immune to further attacks...

    US President Bush got a raucous welcome in Georgia on Tuesday. But he also got a hand grenade thrown at him. Why was security so tight when he visited Germany in February and so lax in Georgia, one of Europe's furthest outposts? Plus: if France doesn't torpedo the EU constitution, Holland might; and can Cannes survive without Michael Moore? US President George W. Bush and Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili play to the roaring crowd in Georgia's Freedom Square unaware that someone had lobbed an inactive grenade in their direction.

    The robustly liberal actor dismisses Internet rumors he plans to run against Connecticut’s conservative Democratic senator, Joe Lieberman. "It’d be lunatic to try to get into politics at my age. I don’t think I’d have the stomach for it." But he says he is worried by the policies of the Bush administration. "I wish I felt a little more comfortable about the direction that we’re going," Newman said carefully. "It does not seem to be of the people, by the people and for the people. It seems to be about something else completely different. "I think part of it...

Harry Reid, D-Nev., called on state legislators Wednesday to repeal a state law that prevents people from registering to vote within a month of an election.

    I am wondering if anyone else heard a comment made by newscaster Kelly Mack on KNBC 4 Morning News this morning. When talking with another commentator about President Bush's Innaugaral speech, she said,( and I am paraphrasing here)" Just goes to show , you have to take anything President Bush says, with a grain of salt." I have already called KNBC and made a major complaint. If you heard it, please express your disgust for such a comment. KNBC (818-840-4444)

    WASHINGTON -- President Bush is calling for national healing after last year's bitterly divisive election, while devoting parts of his inauguration week to core Republican supporters -- the big donors who helped finance the festivities. Bush said Tuesday his second inauguration should serve as inspiration to fledgling democracies in Iraq and Afghanistan. "The inauguration of a president is a great moment in the life of our country," Bush said in a speech to thousands of military personnel and supporters at a sports arena. "With an election behind us, the American people come together in unity to celebrate our freedom," Bush...

    The US media is disciplined by corporate America into promoting the Republican cause. On Thursday, the fairy king of fairyland will be recrowned. He was elected on a platform suspended in midair by the power of imagination. He is the leader of a band of men who walk through ghostly realms unvisited by reality. And he remains the most powerful person on earth. How did this happen? How did a fantasy president from a world of make believe come to govern a country whose power was built on hard-headed materialism? To find out, take a look at two squalid little...
