  • Matt Talbot: Anniversary of a broken covenant (Two Bags required)

    Benicia Herald ^ | May 2, 2014 | Matt Talbot
    ELEVEN YEARS AGO, on May 1, 2003, President Bush stood on the deck of the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln, with a big banner behind him saying “Mission Accomplished,” and declared victory in Iraq. About 96 percent of the American casualties in that misbegotten war occurred after that declaration of victory. Iraqis are still dying because of that war. The way the West has traditionally defined a “just war” can be summarized thus: The cause and the means should be just, there must be reasonable chance of success, and it should only be undertaken after all other means of resolving...

    Dear FRiends and fellow AI fans. Kanye West is scheduled to {cough*gag} perform on AI this Wednesday. This is disgusting and revolting and goes against everything that AI is about, which is clean, fun, enjoyable, entertainment. This man, IMO, is a hater, a racist, and a female beater enabling anti-American. This is a man who says “ my greatest pain in life is not being able to watch myself perform because I am God’s vessel”.

    George Soros, chairman of Soros Fund Management, testified at a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing on Thursday. Highlights: * Said "a deep recession is now inevitable and the possibility of a depression cannot be ruled out." * Said hedge funds were an integral part of the financial market bubble which now has burst. * Said hedge funds will be "decimated" by the current financial crisis and forced to shrink their portfolios by 50-75 percent.

    A REVOLUTION TO TAKE BACK THE US CONGRESS by tenurecorrupts.com I am proposing that we create a popular, bloodless, political revolution in our country. I believe that it is very necessary, very possible, and very doable. The object of this revolution is the destruction of the professional political class which currently dominates and corrupts the US Congress. I am convinced, as are many, many voters, that the bulk of our country's political problems arises out of this 'permanent' Congressional political class, and their devotion to party power and to the financial special interests keeping them in power. There is a...

    Here is a letter I received from Jim Ronca, the man I described as a staunch Republican in a news story I wrote about five Democratic presidential candidates last week. The Democrats spoke at a convention of the American Association for Justice (a group of trial lawyers). He told me he was a Republican but was so fed up by the Bush White House that he was going to support and give money to Democrats. This truthful statement caused a huge reaction from demagogic Republicans who seemingly couldn't bear one of their own turning to the Dems. He and I...

Every business on Greensburg’s main street was demolished and officials estimate as much as 95 percent of the town was destroyed. Tree trunks stood bare, stripped of most of their branches. All the churches were destroyed. At least eight people in this community of 1,500 were dead, putting the state’s total death toll at 10. No one was found Sunday in...

Gabbing about the State of the Union address, O'Donnell called for a member of Congress to put the President up for impeachment, and compared Bush's failures unfavorably to Bill Clinton's. Mama Walters, not wanting to get into a prolonged debate over Wild Bill's behavior, suggested that they move on to the next topic. Not so fast, said Rosie. "Where do you want me to move on to?"...

She wanted to turn American medicine into the National Health Service (grrr) and all her friends were wealthy lawyers (triple eye-roll). She was Lady Macbeth when she wasn’t some goo-goo liberal ideologue. There were as many ways to despise her as she had hairstyles....

Maines' statement is captured in "Dixie Chicks: Shut Up and Sing," as are the meetings where they plot how to circumvent the core country audience and, eventually, how to reroute a tour and cancel shows due to poor ticket sales. It's the rare thorough documentary on a musical act whose dilemmas are faced in the here and now, one that should...

    Neil Young has played on some of the peace movement’s greatest songs but last night at the Tweeter Center, he alienated more folks than he has in perhaps his whole career. Unabashedly unleashing the scathingly unpopular “Let’s Impeach the President,” the Canadian guitar icon turned the packed venue on its ear, splitting the liberals and conservatives right down the middle with his take-no-prisoners lyrics. The same folks who moments earlier were cheering him on CSN classics such as “Deja Vu” and the engaging drug dealer tale “Tree Top Flyer” turned like a top when Young unveiled his in-your-face, anti-Bush mantra....

After briefly noting that she was "proud of our troops for their tireless work," the top House Democrat wasted no time in throwing cold water on the good news.

"I see more death coming out of al-Zarqawi's death," Michael Berg told The Associated Press after learning a U.S. air strike had killed the leader of al-Qaida in Iraq.

I might add the State has no business meddling with an individual’s retirement, the program’s demographic defects will cause it to hemorrhage in red ink in the trillions of dollars, and it is on the road to bankrupting the country.

    WASHINGTON -- The CIA's decision to fire a top intelligence analyst accused of leaking classified information became a political issue almost immediately after it became public last week. The officer was a senior analyst nearing retirement, Mary O. McCarthy, who the agency said leaked information to news organizations about a secret network of CIA prisons. McCarthy was once responsible for guarding some of the nation's most sensitive secrets as a senior aide for the National Security Council, The New York Times reported in today's editions, citing several current and former government officials. In that role, McCarthy often focused on ways...

    AUSTIN, Texas (Creators Syndicate) -- President Bush has once more undertaken to explain to us "Why We Fight," which is also the title of an excellent new documentary on Iraq. According to the president, "Our goal in Iraq is victory." I personally did not find that a helpful clarification. According to the president, we are doomed to stay in Iraq until we "leave behind a democracy that can govern itself, sustain itself and defend itself." That's not exactly getting closer every day. But, the Prez sez, "A free Iraq in the heart of the Middle East will make the American...

    One of the biggest problems confronting higher education is the fact that most students entering colleges and universities lack basic social science skills and knowledge. In a recent survey of college students in Buffalo, for example, almost half did not know who George Pataki is. Eighty percent had no idea, correct or incorrect, as to what communism is. Nearly the same number of students couldn’t define capitalism. For whatever reason, social science education in America has collapsed at the high school level. For a democracy that relies on an informed electorate, such ignorance is toxic.

    ARROYO GRANDE, Calif. (MarketWatch) -- Addicted to oil? Just oil? You're joking? No, we're a "nation of addicts," doing what addicts do best: Denying reality. In denial the brain can rationalize anything. The more self-destructive an addict's behavior, the stronger their denial, louder their protests, arrogance, bravado, even optimism: "I'm fine, everything's under control!" So when a Texas oilman admits 295 million Americans are addicted to oil, as President Bush did in his State of the Union address, that's historic! I've worked professionally with people in and out of recovery; politicians, doctors, celebrities, rock stars, pro athletes and royalty, some in the...

    Maureen Dowd of The New York Times, while turning herself into a caricature of Maureen Dowd, has lately pushed pop-culture references and amateur psychology to previously unimagined levels of absurdity. She began the process in the 1980s when she became a reporter in Washington, discovered that issues of government bored her and determined to get the politics out of politics. Her strategy was to cast politicians in cultural fantasies. During the 1992 primaries she said that one now-forgotten Democrat was enacting a scene from Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid; later she said the same guy sounded like Daisy Buchanan...

    God rest your soul, Casey. You died for a noble cause. We all die. Your death had meaning. May God grant this troubled mother both relief from grief and the wisdom to finally realize she is making it much more difficult for other sons who are over there defending freedom. Cindy, grieve in private and stop harming this nation. We are tired of reading about you on the Al Jazeera website and its U.S. equivalent, CNN. MIDI - WINDY (scroll down to second alphabetical section) If you despise the country you live in...if we're to blame for everything wrong To...

    Statement by Former Ambassador Joseph Wilson August 22nd, 2005 The Bush White House and its right wing allies are responding to Cindy Sheehan and the military families’ vigil in Central Texas in the same way that they always respond to bad news –by unleashing personal attacks and smears against her. This White House never wants an open public discussion, and it certainly never wants to be told that it is wrong. It always tries to change the message by attacking the messenger. They did it with former Treasury Secretary Paul O’Neill when he wrote a book that suggested that the...

    It was such a disgraceful performance by the Bush White House that it is painful to be reminded of it on television: the most credible figure in the Administration, Secretary of State Colin Powel, was trotted out at the UN in February 2003 to present a pile of official legerdemain--based on shoddy intelligence--that provided the WMD rationale for the imminent invasion of Iraq. Has anyone been held accountable?

    Earle lends passion to Iraq war protest near Bush's ranch - Steve Earle sings for peace advocates and soldiers' relatives near Crawford COUNTRY MUSIC CRAWFORD, Texas – When Steve Earle got his invitation to perform at the Camp Casey protest outside President Bush's Crawford residence the singer-songwriter asked organizers to think twice about their choice. "I think this is the beginning of a mainstream movement against the war in Iraq, so I wanted them to consider who I am and the kind of lightning rod I can be," said Mr. Earle, who has a history of activism against the death...

    DENVER (AP) - An Air Force Reserve lieutenant colonel faces eight counts of criminal mischief for allegedly vandalizing cars at Denver International Airport with anti-President Bush messages over the last eight months, the Denver district attorney said Thursday. Alexis Fecteau, 42, was charged with seven misdemeanors and a felony for allegedly damaging eight cars in the airport's parking lot by painting and scratching them, the DA's office said in a statement. Police Capt. John Kostigan has said Fecteau spray-painted over pro-Bush stickers and often added his own message to the sides of the vehicles, including a vulgarity, between December and...

    I apparently am the sacrificial lamb of the peace movement. I don't care about myself. Putting myself in the forefront and daring to challenge the president on his lies left myself open to the attacks. Which are, of course, half truths and distortions.

Yes, my husband has filed for divorce and yes he filed before I left for the VFP Convention and this trip to Crawford and yes IT IS BETWEEN MY HUSBAND AND I. Having Casey murdered in Iraq...

    Many music-minded viewers of the MLB All-Star Game earlier this month were shocked, astonished and disillusioned at the newest truck commercial Chevrolet unveiled. I know I was when I saw it a week or so later -- there were the standard shots of Chevy trucks sending up billowing clouds of dust as they thrummed down rutted dirt roads, crashing and splashing through rocky streams, and burly, flannel-shirted rednecks tossing bales of hay around -- but what was that music playing in the background? It was infinitely familiar yet, given its surroundings, completely out-of-place and exotic, like running into your spinster...
