  • Officer Accused Of Defacing Cars Faces Discharge

    The Air Force Reserve plans to discharge a lieutenant colonel accused of causing thousands of dollars in damage by defacing cars with pro-Bush bumper stickers, officials said Friday. Lt. Col. Alexis Fecteau, a pilot with 500 combat hours in the first Persian Gulf war and the Balkans, is charged with felony criminal mischief. He is accused of using paint stripper to write "F--- Bush" in 18-inch-high letters on cars at Denver International Airport with bumper stickers supporting President Bush and conservative talk-show host Rush Limbaugh. Jim Miller, a spokesman for the Air Force Reserve Command at Robins Air Force Base,...

    Somebody is lying. That's not an accusation or a criticism, just a logical conclusion based on comparing statements by various administration officials. There is no way all of the people involved in the Valerie Plame case can be telling the truth, because they contradict each other, and sometimes themselves. Whether a law was broken when her identity as a CIA agent was revealed in the press back in the early summer of 2004, the more important issues of why she was exposed and the subsequent cover-up tell us more about the integrity of the Bush administration than any legal action...

    Democrat presidents misled and troops wound up dead? That's what Sen. Barack Obama seemed to be saying in a wide ranging interview with the Chicago Tribune this week. Commenting on claims that President Bush used on bogus intelligence to take America into the Iraq war - he noted that more than one Democratic president has done the same thing. The revelation came as Sen. Obama recounted a recent town meeting where an audience member had asked him about the war, saying: "Shouldn't the president be impeached for lying?" The top black Democrat recalled answering: "Well, FDR, JFK, LBJ -- we...

    Founder of veganism whose dietary crusade grew to attract a quarter of a million adherents in Britain today DONALD WATSON survived to the age of 95; good propaganda in his campaign to convince the world that there is nothing inherently lethal about a vegan diet. He always regarded himself as a propagandist, in the term’s non-pejorative sense. When interviewed at 92 he was pleased to report that he had lived thus far without resort to medication “either orthodox or fringe”, and with hardly a day’s illness. His parents were meat-eaters who did not enjoy particularly good health or long lives....

Impressive SAT scores, awards, grades and extracurricular activities are of the utmost importance for college-bound high school students and their families. The priorities of many of today's elite young women, however, are surprisingly conventional, according to one survey. The most fortunate and educated women say they will conform to traditional gender roles after completing their Ivy League degrees. They are choosing careers as full-time mothers and expect to be supported financially by...

    BERLIN (Reuters) - Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder, who has led Germany since 1998, said for the first time on Wednesday he would not play a role in the next government, in an emotional farewell including broadsides at the United States and Britain. "I will not be a part of the next government — definitely not be part of it," a tearful looking Schroeder told a rapt audience of union members in his home city of Hanover. He quickly composed himself, hitting his stride in a passionate defense of a strong German state and lashing out at "Anglo-Saxon" economic policies favoured in...

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- A man who is fighting to get the words "under God" out of the Pledge of Allegiance was back in federal court Wednesday, making some surprising comments about the case. Although the hearing was a procedural matter with no key rulings, Michael Newdow said that if he is successful in having the words removed from the pledge at the U.S. Supreme Court level, it still wouldn't be enough. Newdow believes that it is time to get rid of the old Pledge of Allegiance altogether. He said that it's impractical to just change the pledge because children will...

    Dear Friend, On Monday, we learned that the President nominated White House Counsel Harriet Miers--a long-time adviser and Bush loyalist--to replace Sandra Day O'Connor on the United States Supreme Court. Ms. Miers's record is little known so far, because she's largely served behind the scenes. What leaps out is her loyalty to President Bush beginning with his years as Governor of Texas. We know nothing about her loyalty to the rule of law and the Constitution, or her ability to do the job of Associate Justice on the Supreme Court. It's clear that Mr. Bush is fond of her work:...

    WASHINGTON -- I want to vent. On Friday, President Bush and First Lady Laura Bush deployed from the White House to the Gulf region ravaged by Hurricane Katrina. But the Bushes' photo-op tour is meaningless if people are still marooned on rooftops. The Hurricane Katrina storyline is simple. At its essence at this point, people are either on high, dry ground with some food and water, needed medical attention and a place to sleep -- or they are not. Bush is in a no flim-flam zone. When he said Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, much of the nation trusted...

    can't say I saw everything that the TV newscasters pumped out about Katrina, but I viewed enough repeated segments to say with 90 percent confidence that broadcasters covering the New Orleans end of the disaster demurred from mentioning two topics that must have occurred to every sentient viewer: race and class. Nearly every rescued person, temporary resident of the Superdome, looter, or loiterer on the high ground of the freeway I saw on TV was African-American. And from the look of it, they weren't wealthy residents of the Garden District. This storm appears to have hurt blacks more directly than...

    A Harvard economics professor accused of stealing horse manure from a 98-year-old Rockport farmer received a market lesson yesterday as charges against him were dismissed but restitution was set at an amount he once deemed ''artificially inflated." Martin Weitzman, 63, agreed to pay $600 to Charlie Lane for one truckload of manure Weitzman took from the farmer on April 1. The going rate for a truckload of manure is about $20. The professor was charged with larceny, trespassing, and destruction of property in a case that drew international attention. The case in Gloucester District Court was put off as Weitzman...

    The Veterans Affairs Department needs at least $4 billion more than President Bush has allotted or else veterans' health care and disability claims will suffer, Sen. Barack Obama warned Monday. Obama (D-Ill.) criticized the president during a press conference in Chicago, calling him "bull-headed" and warning that Bush's proposed 2.7 percent increase for the VA doesn't consider an increased demand from returning Iraqi veterans. "When you adjust for inflation, the president's budget has even less money for veterans than it had a year ago," said Obama, who serves on the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee.

Mr. Newdow, 50, asserts that the presence of Christian ministers who pray publicly at the inauguration, Christian songs and the...

Because of a ruthless and callow media, no citizen, much less one who achieves fame, is given the benefit of the doubt when it comes to allegations or personal attacks. The smearing of America is in full bloom.      Weeks before the election, Kitty Kelley put out a book...

A divided government will really help to limit the size of government. What do you think, Bush or Kerry?

At first he said the wounds had been caused in a hunting accident, but later admitted he had asked a 16-year-old friend to shoot him in an attempt to win back the affection of his girlfriend, who had apparently left him because...

    <p>I don't want to listen to Rush Limbaugh. I just don't need the aggravation. We simply disagree on too many issues. The bombastic, nationally syndicated radio talk show host has pummeled just about anyone who isn't a card-carrying citizen of his vision of good ol' white-bread U.S. of A. That would include feminists, gays, blacks, immigrants -- if I left anyone out, please raise your hand!</p>

    What this war is not about By RICK SALUTIN Friday, January 3, 2003 – Page A13 Four things the coming war against Iraq is not about: It is not about terror. Proof A: No connection has ever been shown between Iraq and al-Qaeda; in fact, there is long enmity between their leaders. Proof B: U.S. leaders have clearly used Sept. 11 as a pretext to attack Iraq. Bob Woodward says in his new book that Donald Rumsfeld was already calling for Iraq's inclusion in the war on terror on "the day after"; national security adviser Condoleezza Rice told The New...
