    With VERY few exceptions (thanks to the people that were human and to people that wrote me privately) you people are a bunch of fundamentalist zealots. You aren't're fascists. You make me embarrassed to be a Republican.
  • A Coward Goes to Baghdad (projectile hurl alert)

    A Coward Goes to Baghdad by Doug Basham Forget "The eagle has landed." On Thursday, the turkey landed - on many Americans dinner plates, and on the runway of the airport formerly known as Saddam Hussein International. The stupidity of conservatives never ceases to amaze me, as well as that of the media (and the majority of the American people, come to think of it). And to MY way of thinking, no-one has got this trip right yet. Thus far, the focus has been on the secrecy surrounding the trip, the choice of Fox News to accompany the president,...
  • ZOT! Can there be a serious challenge to Bush in the GOP primaries?

    I am a nationally published journalist who has been drafted to challenge George W. Bush in the Republican Presidential primaries, beginning in New Hampshire on January 27. My aim is to prompt legitimate debate and genuine new ideas, but I start with a question: HAS GEORGE W. BUSH BETRAYED TRADITIONAL GOP VALUES? He has failed in his promise to control spending. Nondefense spending has skyrocketed under Bush. The Congressional Budget Office reported that for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2003, nondefense spending rose 7% – nearly double the 4% discretionary spending caps Bush promised to enforce (Source: Washington Times)....

    Bush trip cloaked in lies and secrecy Investigators speaking on the condition of anonymity, have confirmed to the Times that a prove has been lunch to determine which laws were broken when President Bush directed his White House staff to lie to aids, Secret Service Agents and even to Reporters in preparation for his public-relations saving trip to Baghdad last Thursday. “The problem is, that here you have the president using the power of his office to deceive not only government officials but even the public, and that is unacceptable regardless of the reason” said one agent with knowledge of...

    10-Year-Old Finds Porn In Birthday Piñata Supermarket Refuses To Stop Selling Toys POSTED: 8:21 a.m. PDT July 17, 2003 LOS ANGELES -- A 10-year-old boy in Lancaster found more than candy in a birthday piñata Thursday. He found pornography. Parents said the boy picked up part of a broken piñata at his 7-year-old brother's birthday party and found it layered with pornographic newspaper. Parents quickly took away the X-rated piñata chunks from other kids and complained to the supermarket where they bought it. The boy's mother said the supermarket was understanding but refused to stop selling its other piñata. She...
  • Little Light Shed on Bush Judicial Pick (Miguel Estrada)

    WASHINGTON -- Washington attorney Miguel Estrada, whose nomination to the U.S. Court of Appeals has split Latino groups, assured Senate Democrats in a surprisingly low-key hearing Thursday that his personal and political views will not affect how he decides cases as a judge. "Although we all have views on a number of subjects from A to Z, the first duty of a judge is to put all of that aside," said Estrada, President Bush's choice for a seat on the evenly divided appeals court in Washington. "I'm not worried in the least that anybody could detect any bias or lack...
