  • Bush's Job Growth WORST in 50 Years (Roll out the red carpet for this “staunch Bush supporter.”)

    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.

    What is Derr you may ask? Derr may be the most important thing you may have to worry about. Derr is very evil, very naughty and very ungodly. It is believed to be the reason for why we aren't doing so well in Iraq. But back to the question... What exactly is Derr? Derr is a satanic ritual performed in this country long ago by the Canaanites, the Perezites, the Gurgashites, the Ammorites, the Moabites and the Hittites. It involved taking a stick from a wheat tree and sticking it up your nose while shouting, "Hey mom! Ship ahoy! There...
  • Did Bush willingly commit a ZOT? Please say it ain't so

    12/20/2005 8:49:47 AM PST · by always thr constitution · 195 replies · 5,218+ views
    I have been arguing with stupid libs for two days saying that Bush committed no crime because under the provisions of the USSID 18 and the FSIA, he could with perfect legitimacy eavesdrop on aliens involved in terrorist activities if he had AG approval. However, what was puzzling is that Gonzales did not cite USSID 18; he cited the more dubious rationale of war powers approval. This would seem to indicate that Bush was spying on US citizens without a Court Order which clearly violates USSID 18 and the FSIA, and was using war powers approval to cover for it....

    Research has not found a cure-all for everyone While many of her constituents slept soundly, former Utah Gov. Olene Walker often would wander the governor's mansion in the middle of the night, responding to e-mails, reading or watching TV.    Walker suffers from insomnia, which afflicts about 35 million Americans, according to the National Center on Sleep Disorders Research.    "I've kind of reached a formula," said Walker, who is now in New York City representing The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as an ambassador to other countries. "If after an hour of sleeplessness you can't fall asleep, get...

    Lewis Libby, Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff, was charged Friday with lying to a grand jury during an investigation of possible intelligence leaks by members of the Bush administration. A five-count indictment unsealed Friday by special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald charged only Libby -- it did not name Karl Rove, a key political adviser to President Bush and his assistant chief of staff. Prosecutors reportedly told Rove o Thursday that while he wouldn't face immediate charges, he is still under investigation. The five counts included one of obstruction of justice, two of perjury and two of making false statements...

    WASHINGTON - Volunteers in the civilian-led border watch group known as the “Minuteman Project” are called vigilantes, or worse, by their critics -- patriots or heroes by their supporters. Regardless of the moniker, the Minutemen have driven the issue of illegal immigration from the margins of America’s conscience onto the national stage. <snip> That attention drove more people to the movement and the group’s organizers quickly discovered they needed a way to keep the ball rolling. So it has split and grown arms. One arm is run by Gilchrist, a California accountant, who decided to focus on internal immigration issues,...

    WHY AMERICA SLEPT: The Failure to Prevent 9/11Gerald Posner Ballantine Books Current Affairs/Politics ISBN: 0812966236 As a detailed, carefully documented exposé of ignorance, complacency, shortsightedness and negligence, WHY AMERICA SLEPT is perhaps the most important of the recent books addressing various aspects of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. A similar case could be made for James Bovard's TERRORISM AND TYRANNY, which examines not causes but effects, specifically the government's response to 9/11, which has consisted largely of an unprecedented assault on the Bill of Rights, especially in the areas of privacy and due process. It is a vastly...

FR has a wide range of interests, and if an article is too weird, then people will comment on its weirdness. Anyway, every few weeks I have been trying to find an article just so totally boring that there would be no reason for anyone to comment on it, and at the same time not be too weird as to merit a comment based on its weirdness.

    Check out this demo video of a bunker buster! Excellent quality video, showing extreme detail of the effects. Still, this munition is oviously part of the GBU class weapons, and not the low yield nuke that has been argued about in depth on Capitol Hill. Cool video though.Click here for the video.
  • 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...

    BELFAST, Northern Ireland (Reuters) -- The United States has demanded that the IRA disband after the guerrilla group's astonishing offer to shoot the killers of a murdered Northern Ireland Catholic man. "It's time for the IRA to go out of business," U.S. special envoy Mitchell Reiss said Wednesday. For the IRA's political ally Sinn Fein, Northern Ireland's biggest Irish nationalist party, the U.S. demand was yet another blow to its democratic credentials. Reiss told BBC radio: "It's time for Sinn Fein to be able to say explicitly, without ambiguity, without ambivalence, that criminality will not be tolerated. "You can't sign...

    There has been the normal inside baseball whispering in advance of Kerry's speech — too much Shrum influence; too little Shrum influence; the speech had 12 or more kitchen sink contributors; Kerry didn't practice enough; editing was taking place until the last minute. We have no idea whether any of that stuff is true (OK: we actually DO know that some of it is true … ), and/but we don't think it matters even if it were. John Kerry is famous for finishing strong at the end of tough campaigns in order to win. So one way to think about...
