    Bush’s giant Right Wing Noise Machine (RWNM) loves to preach about the Bush economic miracle. In fact, the RWNM’s current thinking is Bush doesn’t spend enough time talking about his economic triumphs. If only he did, then everyone would fall in line and believe in the great Bush economic miracle. There is one problem with this argument: it’s a lie. Any way you look at the Bush economy, it comes up short. Today, I want to compare Bush’s job creation record with other economic recoveries. As usual, Bush comes up way short. The national Bureau of Economic Research has identified...

    Why does anybody support George w Bush as President? He is clearly the worst President I have ever seen -- a complete disaster. And before you say anything, I have been a registered Republican for 25 years.

    After reading all of the crap that people have been saying regarding Adult Private Social Clubs, I felt that I had to post an article and give my opinion. I am sick and tired of all the religous groups that are saying that there are drugs, prostitution, minors, non-consenting people, and just immoral people at these clubs! First of all, who do these people think they are to decide what is morally right or wrong for me? I believe that I have a good set of morals. I am a law abiding, tax paying citizen, I work full time and...

And just more than 56 percent of that same group strongly disapproved or disapproved of how he has dealt with the Iraq war.

    By Roger Maynard A WOMAN spent four nights trapped with two dead companions in the upturned wreck of a car that skidded 45ft down a grass bank. Ada Makiri, 46, a mother of nine, survived on rainwater while pinned under the car. Barely conscious and with only her left hand free, she said that she thought only of her children as she lay a few inches from her dead friends. “I called out to them. I asked if they were all right. I felt their pulses, but felt nothing,” Mrs Makiri said as she recovered in hospital from hypothermia, facial...

    SAN FRANCISCO, California (AP) -- Some 30,000 taxpayers in 13 states better be prepared to open their checkbooks again. Payments they made last week are now most likely at the bottom of the San Francisco Bay. The checks were lost early on the morning of September 11, when the truck that was transporting them to an IRS lockbox got into an accident on the San Mateo Bridge. ... Terry Lemons, an IRS spokesman, said the agency will happily waive penalties and interest for anyone whose payment was lost. It has asked people who sent mail to the San Francisco facility...

    CUERNAVACA, Mexico (AP) - Adolfo Aguilar Zinser, Mexico's former ambassador to the United Nations who was forced out of his job after saying the United States treats Mexico like a "back yard," died Sunday in a car crash, police said. He was 55. Known for his independent streak, Aguilar Zinser was a vocal critic of the United States' unilateral actions in Iraq during his tenure as U.N. ambassador. He left the position in late 2003 after a diplomatic flap touched off by his comments in November 2003. In the 2003 discussion with university students in Mexico City, Aguilar Zinser said...
  • Communism and human nature (Bolshie Mod sez, Arise ye kittens of the earth!)

    04/05/2005 10:50:57 AM PDT · by Sammy sam · 153 replies · 8,234+ views
    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...

    Gas costs so much. I cant afford it. Why want Bush do something? Don't say he can't. His daddy or his handlers could be on the phone in 2 minutes with the Rothchilds and by 1 week, oil prices would be under $20 and gas would be 1 dollar a gallon. You know it and I know it. Why want he? Do you know? Is there sombody we can call? Plaese advice.

    The DNC train wreck By Steve Bailey, Globe Columnist May 26, 2004 What did Tom Menino and the Democratic Party know and when did they know it? It is nothing short of precious to go back and read the stories from Nov. 14, 2002, the morning after Boston won the Democratic National Convention, or "the political Super Bowl" as we called it then. It was an affirmation of "the New Boston," our moment on the world stage, a chance to pump $150 million into the local economy. Finding enough work space for the media near the FleetCenter qualified as a...

    Investigation Finds Human, Mechanical Error in New York City Train Wreck Mar 16, 2004 By Michael Weissenstein/ Associated Press Writer NEW YORK (AP) - Human and mechanical errors led to an accident in which a runaway train locomotive smashed into five vehicles, injuring three men and a nun, federal investigators said Tuesday. A rail crew violated Long Island Railroad procedures by not setting a hand brake or blocking the 150-ton locomotive's wheels while they went to work on another train, the National Transportation Safety Board said. A mechanical brake that the crew set was leaking air and eventually failed, and...

    The winner of this week's "Hoosier Millionaire" game show died after being hit by a pickup truck just hours after the show's taping, authorities said Friday. Carl D. Atwood, 73, won $57,000 on Thursday during a taping of the television game show in Indianapolis, Hoosier Lottery Director Jack Ross said. After the two-hour taping, which will air tonight, Atwood returned to his hometown of Elwood with the check, Ross said. About 7 p.m., Atwood was crossing Main Street a block from his home -- on his way to the grocery store where he had bought the ticket that got him...
