Democrats ahead in poll

http://rawstory.com/news/2005/Poll_Fifty_percent_would_vote_for_Democra_0917.html

YEAY! A new poll shows Democrats with a 12 point lead over GOP rivals in the coming 2006 Congressional elections.

Are the American people FINALLY waking up that the source of their domestic and foreign woes come from the destructive Republican policies?

Bush to fund private school replacements with tax dollars!

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/09/16/AR2005091601723.html

Get this, Bush wants to give $500 million in federal funding (our tax dollars) to help Private School kids displaced from their schools by Katrina, get into other private schools in different places.

Great, right after we get thousands of black, poor families (most likely all in public schools) displaced from their school, we ignore them, and help the richy-rich get back into their private schools...WITH OUR MONEY!

God I hate this President!

Condi Rice speaks on U.N reform

http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/ap/20050917/ap_on_go_ca_st_pe/rice

The Gap-Tooth Wonder speaks again.

Right after Venezuela and other countries make the argument that the U.N. has to experience a revolution in its foundation, including removing it from the U.S. territory (under the control of a nation that does not care about the organization's resolutions), the veto power of the permanent 5, and including more Third World representation in the Security Council, here comes Condi Rice to give The Empire's perspective.

Revolution OF Reform....what a joke.

Eye-opening. Let us hope their dream of a better world becomes reality.

And this, his earlier, applause-gathering speech at the U.N. summit.

Chertoff to blame, memo shows!

http://www.timesleader.com/mld/timesleader/news/politics/12637130.htm

So, Chertoff is the real asshole in this story? Not Brown?

I mean, Brown screwed up anyway, so I'm not crying for him. But, if Chertoff waited 36 hours with his thumb up his ass, he needs to go too!

Fire Chertoff!

FAA knew of 9/11 style attack in 1998; Bush did NOTHING!

http://www.nytimes.com/2005/09/14/politics/14terror.html?ei=5088&en=de70410b170860e3&ex=1284350400&partner=rssnyt&emc=rss&pagewanted=print

Remember those documents related to 9/11 that Bush didn't want to release. Well, some have been released.

Guess what was in it. The FAA knew that Al-Qaeda wanted to hijack an airliner into a major landmark. They knew in 1998, fucking 1998. They had 3 years to prepare a solid defense and warn their agencies, and they ignored it. Just like they ignored the preparations for a Katrina-style hurricane.

Why do you think Bush didn't want to release this? Because it proves, beyond a doubt, that his administration was dead at the wheel, even though Clinton tried telling him of this threat, and various memos supposedly talked of this threat. Remember Condo Rice, "the memos were vague, I remember they said Bin Laden determined to attack America".

They weren't vague. They were specific. They talked about a hijacked airliner into a major landmark.

IMPEACH this administration. Not only are they inept, they're liars.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/china/story/0,7369,1568622,00.html

File this one under the "creepy" category. Skincare products harvested from...the skin of dead, executed prisoners in China!?

SOYLENT GREEN IS PEOPLE! AAARRGHG! :)

A comment on Condo Rice and diversity?


http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=102x1776522

I was reading Condoleeza Rice attempt to defend America's racial standing in the world, especially on the level of "diversity" in different fora, and I was struck by the blunt, but effective response from one of the thread's participants. Take a look at this picture.

Michael Brown resigns; I celebrate!

FEMA CHIEF Michael Brown has just resigned.

http://rawstory.com/news/2005/Journal_FEMA_chief_t_0912.html

Good riddance, asshole.

Smile everyone. At least someone in the Bush cabal is getting axed for this catastrophe.

Now I will go back to jumping around, Daffy Duck style, shouting, "whoohoo, whoohoo, whoohoo, whoohoo." :)

Ok, i'm back

Hey everyone. I'm back, maybe for a little time, maybe longer. So much stuff in the news that's got me pissed off. But let's start with this little gem.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/09/08/AR2005090802140.html?nav=rss_print/asection

The Pentagon is holding a Freedom Walk to commemorate 9/11. Folks, if we were reading this straight out of a German history book, we'd be nodding our heads at how much it makes sense that the Nazis would be holding "Aryan brotherhood" or "German superiority" "freedom" marches as well. But, no, sadly, it's happening here in the U.S., and it's now.

Not surprising, considering the sponsor of the Freedom march is the military. What do you do if the populace is resolutely against the war you're waging? Why, you get the military to promote a "Freedom March" to fire up that jingoism in your belly!

But it gets better.

The march, sponsored by the Department of Defense, will wend its way from the Pentagon to the Mall along a route that has not been specified but will be lined with four-foot-high snow fencing to keep it closed and "sterile," said Allison Barber, deputy assistant secretary of defense.

"Sterile" from what? The regular people, who might disagree with the march and its message? Whatever happened to this little old text, found in the U.S. Constitution, First Amendment:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."

So, let me get this straight. It's not even Congress "abridging" the right of the people to peaceably assemble and petition their government (which is a very real possibility, considering that many will disagree with this march). It's the military, folks. The military is abridging the right of the people to peaceably assemble. But, it's get better.

One restricted group will be the media, whose members will not be allowed to walk along the march route. Reporters and cameras are restricted to three enclosed areas along the route but are not permitted to walk alongside participants walking from the Pentagon, across the Memorial Bridge to the Mall.

Ok, so the media will also not be allowed to walk along the route. Presumably because the Pentagon fears that a reporter might whip out an Ak-47 and start shooting pro-war supporters, right? Never can't be too sure in these terrorist times. So, now the military is abridging the right of the freedom of the press as well (or limiting it to three enclosed areas).

But hey, if there's something good to all of this, it's this little gem (made me smile).

Opponents of the Freedom Walk took issue with the way the Pentagon is staging the event. When the walk first was publicized, participants were required to submit their names, ages, e-mail addresses and home addresses. After some groups accused the Pentagon of using the registration as a recruiting tool for the military, the requirements were changed.
Barber said the government now asks for a full name, age group, T-shirt size and e-mail address (each registered walker will get a T-shirt). Walkers have until 4:30 p.m. today to register, which must be done online.

Anything that gets together the most mindless, Redneck, "America #1" drones into one place, and facilitates their recruitment into the war they so fervently support (but avoid to participate in) is FINE BY ME. Enjoy Baghdad, morons!

As for the rest of us, things continue to look very peachy in Fascist America. More coming soon...
