    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: 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. The "right" to own pets; 2. The "right" to drive a car Huh D'oh--almost...

    Some say Dick Cheney is toast. He's too hot to handle, throw him over the side if he won't drop himself into the waves. Don't look now, but that isn't water surrounding the Bush ship of state. It's gasoline. Have you ever noticed how on a scale of one to 10, every untoward event in the life of the Bush presidency goes straight to a 10? The Abu Ghraib photos? A 10 forever. Dick Cheney catching a hunting buddy with some birdshot? An instant 10. The Bush National Guard story? Total 10. How can it be that each downside event...

    The American Thinker ^ | February 22, 2006 | Ed Lasky
     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...

    DUBAI — The UAE and Palestine have agreed to the establishment of a new joint investment company, to be announced within a few weeks, according to Mazen Sinokrot, the Palestinian Minister of Economy, who has recently visited the UAE. Speaking exclusively to Khaleej Times, Sinokrot said, "The purpose of establishing such venture is to explore the investment opportunities in Palestine, and to boost the economic ties with the UAE. Further we are planning as well an Initial Public Offering for the company in the UAE." "We have already started with the first step towards establishing this company by talking to...
  • Don't Trust Al Gore's Rhetoric (it's just an act, he clearly doesn't hate Israel enough)

    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. But that didn't really happen with this...

    Capital Times ^ | 2-13-6 | John Nichols
    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...

    Coretta Scott King or Kanye West? BET went West. In a shocker, Black Entertainment Television took a pass on live coverage of the King funeral yesterday, going instead with its usual lineup of music-video shows from noon to 3 p.m. "Was it an easy call? Absolutely not," says Michael Lewellen, BET's senior vice president for corporate communications. "We weighed a number of different options. In the end, we chose to offer a different kind of experience for BET viewers." BET streamed live coverage on its Web site. On TV, it ran taped, 60-second cut-ins from the funeral by BET senior...

If anyone has information about this, I'd love to email my 'Moonbat' cousin with the details; or perhaps similar stories that pertain to 'Moonbat' stupidity. If a 'Moonbat' wants to get me into a political discussion, using Air America garbage is NOT the way to go about it. -----Original Message-----[FROM] [TO] ommitted for privacy reasons Subject: State of the Union WARNING: The Republicans...

    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. That is what we are told by Osama bin Laden, who, in an audio...

    PRINCETON, N.J. (AP) — U.S. Sen. 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 Living Things might be the most controversial band you never heard of - yet. Forget Green Day’s Bush-bashing, or Kanye West’s post-Katrina assault on the president. 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. Before each show they ritually set fire to a photo of the president before urinating on it. These attention-getting efforts have earned the Living Things enemies, death threats and a few post-show...

    WASHINGTON -- Four African-American New Orleans residents told a House committee Tuesday that they felt a sense of abandonment from all levels of government when Hurricane Katrina hit three months ago and believe more lives and homes would have been saved had the victims been predominantly white and wealthier. "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."

    BENNINGTON, Vermont (AP) -- A high school teacher is facing questions from administrators after giving a vocabulary quiz that included digs at President Bush and the extreme right. Bret Chenkin, a social studies and English teacher at Mount Anthony Union High School, said he gave the quiz to his students several months ago. 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...

But a new exhibit on Charles Darwin caused the Wednesday evening gala to evolve into something of a rally against President Bush's preferred theory of intelligent design. "This is a time when those of us who care about science and Darwin have to take a stand," museum patron Tom Brokaw told the black-tied and bejeweled species, including Caroline Kennedy, Princess Firyal of Jordan, Viacom big shot Tom Freston, Michael Eisner, Eva Longoria, Jimmy Buffett, Jonathan Demme, Nora...
  • Bush Signs $100 Billion Food and Farm Bill [telling grocery shoppers where their meat comes from...]

    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

    National Review ^ | 10/18/2005 | Adam Bellow
    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...
