Drawing a Line
Author: BobR    Date: 03/28/2008 12:26:12

It's been hard to escape all of the Clinton -vs- Obama hype lately. Hillary's underhanded tactics are given all of the proper outrage - repeatedly... The video of Rev. Wright is discussed ad nauseum. Everyone keeps wondering aloud if all of this will destroy the Democratic party. There certainly seem to be a fair number of Democrats that say they'll vote for McCain if their desired candidate is not the one nominated.

Oh really?... Are you sure?.... Perhaps it's time to really take a close look at McCain and what we'll be getting if he's elected this fall.

Hillarious Roughness

Finally, the YouTubes went back online, so, here is Steph from last night - plus a few new audicons for us all to play with...



Seems that Dan wasn't so happy with the "pimp" comment and put our dear Stephie in the penalty box. I thought it was funny! But, at least Dan was nice at the end, and MSNBC won't act like Fox "News."

Well, it's crazy late and thankfully I don't have to answer a 3 AM call - unless it's of the "booty" persuasion

So with that,

Good Morning.

Today is our 1,833rd day in Iraq.

As it was pointed out yesterday in this space, we reached another tragic milestone in Bush's folly, so let's start as we always do with the latest casualty figures courtesy of Antiwar.com:

American Deaths
Since war began (3/19/03): 4000
Since "Mission Accomplished" (5/1/03): 3861
Since Capture of Saddam (12/13/03): 3539
Since Handover (6/29/04): 3141
Since Election (1/31/05): 2563

Other Coalition Troops: 308
US Military Deaths - Afghanistan: 490

We find this morning's cost of war passing through: $505, 492, 500, 000.00

Four Thousand.... So?
Author: Raine    Date: 03/24/2008 12:36:02

On Sunday, March 23, 2008 America lost it's 4000th Soldier.
So?
It was a somber and sad milestone that happened ironically, on Easter Sunday.
So?
We tried to not let it happen.
So?

Last week on the Fifth Anniversary of B*sh's War the vice *resident said::
RADDATZ: Two-third of Americans say it's not worth fighting.
CHENEY: So?
RADDATZ: So? You donít care what the American people think?
CHENEY: No.[...]

So..

More Hypocrisy
Author: velveeta jones    Date: 03/23/2008 12:44:19

Happy Easter!

For some reason it just seems appropriate to talk about hypocrisy on Easter. Don't get me wrong, I'm not being anti-Christian or anything. I find it odd that we have probably THE most holiest of Christian holidays and Christians can't seem to celebrate a holiday without stealing from Pagans. In this case, bunnies, eggs, candy wrapped in ribbons......... nothing at all to do with Jesus rising from His grave and everything to do with the Solstice and celebration of spring. While I don't dispute that Jesus existed, no one knows when he was born or when he died, so instead, Holy Days were stolen from the "heathens". As if, long ago, some guys got together and picked this day just to convince Pagans that they were wrong (don't get me started on Christmas).

But, I can't single out Christians as being the only group to try to steal an event in order to erase it from history, or to attempt to otherwise "whitewash" history. We see whitewashing going on today from Ronald Reagan to Mao Tse Tung to the Confederate Battle flag and what it stood for.

During the past few decades, the media has been the “go-to” outlet to quickly and thoroughly make these revisions of history. Whether its George Bush’s many gaffs or the current controversy with Rev Jeremiah Wright and Barack Obama.

Media outlets, politicians and pundits all attacking a man - a Presidential candidate - because he went to church and may have heard a sermon which may have had some divisive words spoken.

So what?

Libertarian Saturday
Author: TriSec    Date: 03/22/2008 12:53:55

Good Morning!

I hope everyone that celebrates it is having a pleasant and spiritual Holy Week....
For the rest of us, it's spring now. Where are the flowers and chirping birds?


We'll start out this morning by checking on the party. Like everyone else, the National Libertarian Party had to put in it's two cents on the 5th anniversary of war...
Washington, D.C. - On the five-year anniversary of the beginning of the U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq, the Libertarian Party offers the following statement by Executive Director Shane Cory:

It is with a heavy heart that I woke up on March 19, 2008, in a country still at war in Iraq, now five years after it first began. It is also with great disappointment that neither Republicans nor Democrats have provided a plan to end what is shaping up to be a "forever war." On this five-year anniversary of the invasion of Iraq, the Libertarian Party renews our call to bring American troops home without undue delay. May the courage and sacrifice of the 3,990 soldiers who have died in Iraq while serving their country never be forgotten.


Short, but to the point.

Of course, we're about the only political party in the United States that has issued an actual policy statement about Iraq that is concise, measurable, and achieveable.

Unless you've been living in a bubble, you heard it revealed last night that Obama's passport file at the State Dept. had been accessed by unauthorized personnel - on 3 wholly separate occassions. As of this writing, here is the latest info:
