And the thing is when he did deliver it, it would be just inside of the hedge. Now it's just flop down on the side walk. I guess it is just too much effort to get into the yard.
And yes I know I am a bad person for not cleaning the side walk in front of the house.

Can't they pull themselves together and end all this violence. I mean really. Once one or two little bombs fell on them. Their government was removed. Their military and police were gone. People were being picked up and tortured some died. Then a new government installed.
You think the violence would have long been over by now. I am in such shock and or awe over this along with BushCo.
Monday, November 13, 2006
When the people of Iraq stand up that is what you call sectarian violence.
Boy that Baker commission must be really good. I mean they delayed the report until after the elections and we are still waiting. So it must be full of really good advice that BushCo has to really mull over well.
Stay the same bullshit.
But good thing they got him because without him being there. The true nature of BushCo probably would be better hidden. Not that they are trying to hide it. I mean they are right and all.
I wonder if doing nothing will come back as sign of done nothing? And then that would be used as reason you should vote republican. Maybe democrats should listen to the people and experts instead pundants!?
But I still think democrats need to explain how pointless tax cuts increases the bruden on people who live paycheck to paycheck. And the how the social security system actually works and how it ain't going bankrupt. Or just spend some time with the people explaining away the rehtoric.

Partisan and moderate. Ones an accusation used by people who said the other side was not just wrong they were wrong for America and maybe siding with the terrorist. The other is claim used to say that even with all the accusing of the other side of being the extreme ones. They got elected by not being everything they was accused of being.
What a big conservative win 11/7/06 was. Which by they way will be the out for Lieberman. There is no way things are going to stay the same with a small group of people claiming to have all the plans. And should just hold on and believe in them to be doing the right thing. And that they not only don't need any oversight. They are more than a little upset by your not trusting their secret decisions. And when they start to squawking he run to, run in place more like, their side of the isle.

Is the reason behind Rumsfeld leaving a lawsuit by Germany? A story by Adam Zagorin at TIME.com makes me think so.
Just days after his resignation, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld is about to face more repercussions for his involvement in the troubled wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. New legal documents, to be filed next week with Germany's top prosecutor, will seek a criminal investigation and prosecution of Rumsfeld, along with Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, former CIA director George Tenet and other senior U.S. civilian and military officers, for their alleged roles in abuses committed at Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison and at the U.S. detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
Fighting for peace does not mean war. Fighting for peace does not mean wearing tie dye and chanting in the streets.
Fighting for peace means all the people at BushCo. who are at war with Islam have to silenced. And then we need to restart the Middle East Peace process.
It's a horrible example but it's there. If you let them lose they will kill hundreds of thousands of people with no end in sight. They will use the fact that deaths have happened during their war as a reason to continue their war. And if you are against their war then you are weak. Iraq did not attack the United States Iraq could not attack the United States.
But just the same they say their war is going smoothly. It just that you don't understand that it's very complicated and you need to back off. BTW if the media and the politicians back off any farther they'd be on another planet.
Is all military action bad? No! Something really has to be done about Darfur and now.
Will the Democrats start building committees and boards of experts and start discussing peace in the Middle East which include trying to stabilize Iraq? Or will they listen to the "xerox media enabling lapdogs" and behave themselves in a niceties rich bipartisan way?
Just because they called unpatriotic and connected you with a child sex club, nambla. That would be no reason to misbehave now would my little defeatocrats.

I'd say it was whomever decided not to go with cable channel advertising and who let the Repub's get away with setting the tone i.e. The Death Tax, John Kerry's bad joke telling e.t.c. They are a little to hung up on appearance rather than substance. That's why most of these people didn't stick up for Kerry in 2004. This not about coming to power it is about right and wrong. And there is a hell of a lot of wrong to be dealt with.
And ain't it funny that Jim Webb wins because the Repub's didn't want the electronic voting machines with the paper trail? Notice how they don't want Allen to contest the results.

I say blame the Clinton's for this mess...
But seriously it does not mean anything. A change in.., having a plan means more. And again victory in Iraq means what?
And the prez is still going on about terrorist want to take over the world crap so, so far no change.

So same sex, sex scandals don't turn them away. It makes them feel they need to do even more to stem the tide.

It's not that now the place has descended into chaos that we should pull out. What will be won if we stay there halfassedly occupying but not controlling. Iraq with all these terrorist running around still is not a threat to America.
They are not attacking us. There is nothing to be won. There is nothing dignified about calling this invasion a war a claiming we can win it. But Tuesday November 7th is regarded as a referendum on the handling of the occupation they call a war. So no change either way.
addendum: 11/06/06 For a long while there was no insurgency. Then there sort of was. Then they became prof of terrorist existing in Iraq and replaced WMDs as the reason we invaded. Then and right now the only exist as instruments that are being used to influence our politics.

How Dumb Are You?
This is supposed to be a big earth shaking event. When they say it, you hear a thud as this lead balloon hits the ground.
But the other sound you hear is the sound of the Democrat party going to shit as they react positively to the republicans turning a flubbed one liner into a useless talking point. Our is that the sound of the incumbents who need to be removed.

SANTA ANA, Calif. -- A California congresswoman said she was briefly denied access to a United Airlines flight last week because her name appeared on a "no fly list" set up after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
Rep. Loretta Sanchez, a Democrat who has been a critic of the no-fly list, said her staff had booked her a one-way ticket from Boise, Idaho, to Cincinnati through Denver. But they were prevented from printing her boarding pass online and at an airport kiosk.
Transportation Security Administration spokeswoman Jennifer Peppin said that for security reasons she couldn't confirm that the name was on the list. But she said that name mix-ups do occur.
"Generally what happens is people have a name that is very similar to someone who is on the no-fly list. It's the airlines' responsibility to do further checking,"
Shenanigans I tell you. just an example of what will happen more often. Epsecially after having been outed for stunts like this. If you think about it. They spend a lot more time bashing Democrats than they do going after terrorist. And not just during this '06 election.
When you don't have nobody to choose from you pick the lesser of the two evils. Blago' is not corrupt. His is just very extremely ethically challenged. It took a lot of doings to be the first IL Dem' Gov' in a quarter century. And Topinka, that stunt with Jack Ryan and bringing in Alan Keys will forever be around her neck. Despite the media over looking it and her choosing Jim Edgar to be her transition team head. Ya a lot of people in this state have memories longer than current news articles.
Update: Did not cap this from same noon news but, they have on CLTV too so I got a second chance. There for that one anonymous person I have something including the green party candidate. Don't look like anybody has to worry that a third party will sap many votes, eh.
Tuesday, October 24, 2006
Judy Baar Topinka wants ex Gov. Jim Edgar to head up her transitional team if she is elected. Not even trying to hide the fact that if you let a republican back in the Governors mansion it will be back to full blown corruption. What player Blagojevich did, and damn him for being one, will be nothing compared to the mess republicans will make of our state.

If your a parent you have to be one. You can not defer your job to nameless faceless packets. You have to go on-line your damn self and make a list of sites you found to be safe for your youngin. And be there when they are surfin plus instill some sort of sense of right and wrong in them... oh nevermind that's just too hard. Make some laws that while you're at it. There was this site you didn't like what it said so lets just say it's unsafe for kids.
Government defends 1998 anti-porn law
The plaintiffs, technology experts and even Supreme Court Justice Anthony M. Kennedy have expressed concerns that the law has already been surpassed by technology and the growth of the Internet. Kennedy noted, for example, that filters can block Web material posted offshore, but the law cannot control what foreigners post online.

GOP losses could spark partisan warfare
WASHINGTON - The White House is bracing for guerrilla warfare on the homefront politically if Republicans lose control of the House, the Senate or both Â and with it, the president's ability to shape and dominate the national agenda.
"If he loses one house here, President Bush will enter the last two years very wounded," said David Gergen, a former White House adviser who served in the administrations of Presidents Nixon, Ford, Reagan and Clinton.
"He will have the capacity to say no to Democratic legislation, but he won't have the capacity to say yes to his own legislation," said Gergen, who teaches at Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government.
Democratic victories essentially could block Bush's remaining agenda and usher in a period of intense partisan bickering over nearly every measure to come before Congress.
Loss of either chamber also could subject his administration to endless congressional inquiries and investigations.
Must protect the power base screw the country... some more.
GARDEN GROVE, Calif. - A Republican congressional candidate whose campaign is being investigated for sending intimidating letters to Hispanic voters lashed out at his Democratic rival, saying she was fueling the uproar over the mailings.
"There has been no crime committed so why is there a criminal investigation three weeks prior to a very important election?" Nguyen asked. "What is going on? Who is fueling this investigation?"
Nguyen, a Vietnamese immigrant who has made illegal immigration a centerpiece of his campaign, said he would stay in the race despite calls from the state GOP and others to quit.
"I'm innocent," Nguyen said. "I'm not going to quit this race; I'm going to win this race."
What the hell is with republicans!?! I did it,yes but I am not guilty because of the timing of this revelation of what it is I did. Hmm why would people bring up an illegal stunt you did to influence the election just before the election. Lets all scratch our collective heads over that.

Liberals gone absolutely wild!
Victor Davis Hanson, a senior fellow and historian at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University: Tribune Media Services
Published October 20, 2006
Why do Republicans drive leftists so crazy these days? Liberal Democrats are beginning to sound like rowdy students on spring break, shrieking and exhibiting themselves on camera.
Consider some of the recent rabid outbursts by once sober old-guard politicians. West Virginia Sen. Jay Rockefeller insists that the world would be better off if Saddam Hussein were still running Iraq. Crotchety Congressman John Murtha of Pennsylvania rushed to announce that our Marines were guilty of killing Iraqis in "cold blood" before they were tried. Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin has compared our interrogators at Guantanamo Bay to Nazis, while Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry said our soldiers have "terrorized" Iraqi women and children.
Then there is the constant anger from Democratic ex-presidents. It used to be that out-of-office chief executives kept relatively hush. Presidents Ford and the elder Bush--both voted out of office--did not bray when President Clinton had his trials, personal and otherwise.
Not so now with Presidents Carter and Clinton. They repeatedly harp on the sins of the current administration. By now, everyone has seen clips of Clinton losing his temper (complete with finger-wagging) and lashing out at the "right-wingers" on TV. He lectures on political extremism, even as one of his wife's staff members slandered Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) by saying he broke under torture while a prisoner of war in Hanoi. And even at 82, Jimmy Carter almost daily carps over Bush's foreign policy.
Do not forget the unhinged billionaire leftist philanthropists. Ted Turner said he resented President Bush asking Americans, after Sept. 11, 2001, to take sides in our war against Islamic terrorists. George Soros claimed that Bush improved on Nazi propaganda methods.
The frustration with Bush & Co. has driven a few in the media almost to the point of clinical madness. In 2004, a clueless Dan Rather imploded by airing clearly forged memos that called into question Bush's National Guard service--with the result that he was eased out by an embarrassed CBS News. More recently, Keith Olbermann, the foaming news head on the struggling cable channel MSNBC, keeps his ratings low with uncontrollable rants about Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld pushing a "new fascism."
On college campuses, the old leftist intolerance of unwelcome free speech is back with a fury. A guest spokesman for the Minutemen immigration reform group was shouted down at a recent Columbia University lecture. Earlier, Harvard's liberal president Lawrence Summers was forced out after timidly questioning academic orthodoxy about the role of women in science and engineering.
What sends liberal criticism over the edge into pathological hysteria?
Is it that George W. Bush is a polarizing figure, not just in terms of his Iraq policy, but also because of his Christian Texan demeanor?
Or is the current left-wing savagery also a legacy of the tribal 1960s, when out-of-power protesters felt that expressions of speaking bluntly, even crudely, were at least preferable to "artificial" cultural restraint? Why should graying veterans of the barricades, then, remain "polite" when their country's less sophisticated red-state yokels are taking it in the wrong direction?
The Democrats have not elected congressional majorities in 12 years, and they've occupied the White House in only eight of the last 26 years. The left's current unruliness seems a way of scapegoating others for a more elemental frustration: that they can't gain a national majority based on their core beliefs. More entitlements, higher taxes to pay for them, gay marriage, de facto quotas in affirmative action, open borders, abortion on demand, and radical secularism--these liberal issues don't tend to resonate with most Americans.
To compensate, leftist pundits, billionaire philanthropists and politicians, from current officeholders to ex-presidents, work to ensure that isolated moments of Republican ineptness (President Bush strutting on a carrier deck in his flight suit) and wrongdoing (repulsive e-mails from a perverted congressman, Mark Foley) blare out as the only issues of the day. This distracting drumbeat, not their own agenda, is the only strategy for success in the next election.
True, reactionaries in the 1990s expressed a Neanderthal hatred of Bill Clinton. But now shouting leftists have lowered the bar. The danger, of course, is that by emulating the rhetoric of a Cindy Sheehan or Michael Moore, the feral Democrats--when they come back into power again as tamed leaders who must govern--will have created Frankensteins. And, as we know, such monsters always turn on their creators.

Now that there no chance of winning a war that should never have been. And with proof that nothing has been done to keep us safe. Maybe there will be some, some what kinda signs of ball and or spine growth eh.
Oh my they came to Illinois several times. They are not supporting gubernatoriall candidate Judy Topinka. Tribune played it off as she was campaining down state and made it look like it was her choice.
Ok what who? Nancy Pelosi is only an evil figure in wingnuts' minds. And she ain't running for office in Illinois.
Roskam and his peeps paid for this one but just the same. What's with bringing up Teddy?

Rod Blagojevich (D)
- Plays the game
- Guilty by associating with people under investigating
Judy Baar Topinka (R)
- There was nobody else running
- Alan Keys
If he can survive the game and people talk about what he has done for Illinois then maybe... But a lot of this is long rooted stuff that goes deep back in the years when this was a long time republican governors only but, a very blue as they say state. I think it's sad when everybody thinks it has to be business as usual. Even sadder when it seems it has to be brought to light and attached squarely on the shoulders of the Democrat Gov. right now, laugh.
A young swimming champion has injected some fun into Catalonia's election campaign that starts tomorrow by stripping naked as candidate for a new anti-nationalist party.
Albert Rivera, 26, a lawyer with no political experience, follows in the footsteps of the Italian former porn star La Cicciolina, who bared a breast in a provocative campaign to become an MEP. In pursuit of Catalan votes on 1 November, Mr Rivera appears naked on posters for his Citizens of Catalonia party. "We don't care what language you speak, or what clothes you wear. We only care about you," claims the slogan alongside a photo of the candidate, his hands crossed across his genitals.
Or maybe spend a year before elections talking about those issues. And trying to make changes and a name for yourself.

Air America Goes Bust Again
Okay so when they came back to Chicago I didn't even know it. Great advertising eh. And what's up with all the scambo advertising spots on the station. Whatever.
NEW YORK (Reuters) - Air America Radio, the liberal news and talk radio network whose on-air talent includes comedian Al Franken, on Friday filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection after talks with a creditor broke down.
The network said it plans to stay on the air while it reorganizes. In a filing with the U.S. bankruptcy court in Manhattan, Air America said it lost about $40.9 million since the spring of 2004, including $13.1 million so far in 2006.
"This regrettable action became necessarily only recently when good faith efforts to resolve outstanding debt with a creditor from the company's earliest days broke down," Air America said in a statement.
Air America was launched in March 2004 with programming to counter-balance politically conservative shows by nationally syndicated hosts like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity.
The New York-based company said it has 4 million listeners, and has on-air personalities including Robert Kennedy Jr. and Randi Rhodes. Air America also syndicates a radio show from television host Jerry Springer.
And are we supposed to believe Jerry Springer is... what is he doing there!?!
Shh, Wait Not Now I Think People Are Watching.
It's only a matter of time until it will all be one. Welcome back Ma' Bell.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A California-born convert to Islam could become the first American accused of treason since World War Two after he appeared in al Qaeda videos, sources familiar with the man's case said on Wednesday.
George Bush's grandfather, the late US senator Prescott Bush, was a director and shareholder of companies that profited from their involvement with the financial backers of Nazi Germany.
Donald Rumsfeld, the US defence secretary, sat on the board of a company which three years ago sold two light water nuclear reactors to North Korea - a country he now regards as part of the "axis of evil" and which has been targeted for regime change by Washington because of its efforts to build nuclear weapons.

evangelicos don't care about Foley or what the others did to cover it all up. Or even the fact that this might be just one thing amongst a lot. They believe too much in the lies about what Democrats stand for them to be any influence to anyone but republicans.
As long has they hear what they want to hear it wont matter what comes out about their party of choice. All the repubs have to do is keep this investigating it bit going until after the elections. Everyone will just get tired of it. Evangelicos are going to still get out and vote.
If torturing people until they tell you they are terrorist don't sway them. What makes people think a little sex with underlings will.
Democrats need to stop worrying about who will vote for republicans and start talking the people who would vote for them. They have to start previewing their plans. I say preview because anything they put out there during the elections will just be held up as fodder by the republicans.
Look at tax breaks for the rich. Republicans and the media can get away with saying Democrats want to bring more taxes on the middle class working families. Why not spend some time talking about that lie? A lie meant to preserve tax cuts for rich people who can easily make some of their income untaxable with investments, nevermind the cheating. There are advantages to not living paycheck to paycheck. And when the tax money ain't coming in to government the burden is shifted on to the working class. It would be nice if a series of talks were held on things like that. That would focus on the lies but not on the liars.
A Voeh or series of YouTube videos with Barak Obama (D-IL) explaining how the Estate Tax is not a death tax on working class peoples. Or explaining how social security ain't in trouble.
But no, they'll just keep playing keep up as best we can. Instead of leading.
We are natural partners to offer a compelling media entertainment service to users, content owners and advertisers," said Eric Schmidt, Google's chief executive officer.
YouTube will continue to retain its brand, as well as all 67 employees, including co-founders Chad Hurley and Steve Chen. The deal is expected to close in the fourth quarter of this year.
"I'm confident that with this partnership we'll have the flexibility and resources needed to pursue our goal of building the next-generation platform for serving media worldwide," said Hurley, YouTube's 29-year-old CEO.
While most videos posted on YouTube are homemade, the site also features volumes of copyrighted material -- a problem that has caused some critics to predict the startup eventually would be sued into oblivion, much like the once-popular music-sharing site Napster.
Okay, first NBC then the Warner deal and now the Google buy out. Whatever it could have been it wont. I guess nobody learned nothing from the @home mess. Everybody will talk on and so so about copywright and tickelish content. And behind the scenes the these big time TV/movie folk and gonna get along with the "interwebs" people.
Well anyways enjoy some YouTube original work:
These people are running ads that say we are headed for a california style energy crisis. ComEd has already claimed if they don't to raise rates they will go bankrupt. Consumers Organized for Reliable Electricity (CORE) spent 4 mil' to try and convince people here that they are not a big company, Exelon, pretending to be a concerned citizens group. Who thinks we citizens should be paying more for our electricity, or else.
Tapes Show Enron Arranged Plant Shutdown
By Timothy Egan
The New York Times
Friday 04 February 2005
EVERETT, Wash - In the midst of the California energy troubles in early 2001, when power plants were under a federal order to deliver a full output of electricity, the Enron Corporation arranged to take a plant off-line on the same day that California was hit by rolling blackouts, according to audiotapes of company traders released here on Thursday.
The tapes and memorandums were made public by a small public utility north of Seattle that is fighting Enron over a power contract. They also showed that Enron, as early as 1998, was creating artificial energy shortages and running up prices in Canada in advance of California's larger experiment with deregulation.
The tapes provide new details of market manipulation during the California energy crisis that produced blackouts and billions of dollars of surcharges to homes and businesses on the West Coast in 2000 and 2001.
In one January 2001 telephone tape of an Enron trader the public utility identified as Bill Williams and a Las Vegas energy official identified only as Rich, an agreement was made to shut down a power plant providing energy to California. The shutdown was set for an afternoon of peak energy demand.
"This is going to be a word-of-mouth kind of thing," Mr. Williams says on the tape. "We want you guys to get a little creative and come up with a reason to go down." After agreeing to take the plant down, the Nevada official questioned the reason. "O.K., so we're just coming down for some maintenance, like a forced outage type of thing?" Rich asks. "And that's cool?"
"Hopefully," Mr. Williams says, before both men laugh.
The next day, Jan. 17, 2001, as the plant was taken out of service, the State of California called a power emergency, and rolling blackouts hit up to a half-million consumers, according to daily logs of the western power grid.
So they are going shutdown power plants and drive up prices and laugh at the rolling blackouts? The Citizens utility Board, CUB breaks down their claims. I don't think they are hurting either.
Crane, who tearfully apologized for his transgression, lost his bid for reelection in 1984. Studds, however, refused to apologize (even calling a press conference with the former page, in which both stated that they were consenting adults at the time of the relationship and that it was therefore not the business of others to censure them for their private relationship), and he continued to be reelected until his retirement in 1996.
This and that are different. Gerry Studds activity was not covered up. The people his constituents re-elected him. Going on about liberal conspiracies and claiming to take responsibility while accepting no blame is just nuts.
Problem is they don't care and are surprised by all the attention to this. They keep saying that sound as though an authority figure looking to have sex with his or her subordinates is just fine.
A Republican congressman knew of disgraced former representative Mark Foley's inappropriate Internet exchanges as far back as 2000 and personally confronted Foley about his communications.

So don't they think they have the right to spy on the Democrats and bloggers? I bet they are doing that. It's like watergate redone but this time anything they do gets deleted from record before anyone finds out.
(AP) Internet search leader Google Inc. is in talks to acquire the popular online video site YouTube Inc. for about $1.6 billion, the Wall Street Journal reported Friday, citing a person familiar with the matter.
Mountain View-based Google and San Mateo-based YouTube are still at a sensitive stage in the discussion, the newspaper reported on its Web site.
The blog TechCrunch had reported on rumors of the acquisition talks. Representatives from Google and YouTube did not immediately return calls to The Associated Press.
Founded in February 2005 by three former employees of eBay Inc.'s PayPal electronic-payment unit, YouTube is surging thanks to the increased availability of high-speed Internet connections and gadgets such as camera phones and digital cameras capable of taking video. Most of YouTube offerings are short amateur clips, although professional filmmakers, television networks and even political campaigns have posted materials.
Citizens (blogging) for responsibilty and ethics in washington CREW, Say the FBI lied to the press.
The FBI ain't what is used to be for a long time now. CREW found that out as the FBI are trying to mold their story to what every other person involved in covering for Foley is now saying they knew what only when now, huh. I don't think Inspector Lewis Erskine works there anymore and things haven't been the same since.
Limbaugh was detained for more than three hours Monday at the airport after returning from a vacation in the Dominican Republic. Customs officials found the Viagra in his luggage but his name was not on the prescription, said Paul Miller, a spokesman for the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.
I am sure he was not there for underage sex. He most likely was there for the fishing.
Evidence of the sex trade is everywhere as men in shorts and sandals duck into rent-by-the-hour "love motels" with Dominican women in bright dresses.
"There is always a demand for sex," said one Dominican prostitute as she lounged at one of the town's waterfront bars. "Men will always pay for it, especially in here ... where they can get anything they want at a discount."
Indeed, the Dominican Republic is one of the biggest sex tourism destinations in the world, thanks in part to Internet sites that extol the country as a "single man's paradise."

List of Democrats who said yea to torture HERE.
"No, none of that," Lott told reporters after the session when asked if the Iraq war was discussed. "You're the only ones who obsess on that. We don't and the real people out in the real world don't for the most part."
Lott went on to say he has difficulty understanding the motivations behind the violence in Iraq.
"It's hard for Americans, all of us, including me, to understand what's wrong with these people," he said. "Why do they kill people of other religions because of religion? Why do they hate the Israelis and despise their right to exist? Why do they hate each other? Why do Sunnis kill Shiites? How do they tell the difference? They all look the same to me."
Good thing these guys want to torture people. Um..., that one or was it that one? Oh heck just grab 'em all and lets get started.
The Baghdad Police College, hailed as crucial to U.S. efforts to prepare Iraqis to take control of the country's security, was so poorly constructed that feces and urine rained from the ceilings in student barracks. Floors heaved inches off the ground and cracked apart. Water dripped so profusely in one room that it was dubbed "the rain forest."
Federal investigators said the inspector general's findings raise serious questions about whether the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has failed to exercise effective oversight over the Baghdad Police College or reconstruction programs across Iraq, despite charging taxpayers management fees of at least 4.5 percent of total project costs. The Corps of Engineers said Wednesday that it has initiated a wide-ranging investigation of the police academy project.
This is democracy, people. Seize it. Take control. Grab hold of the Democratic Party and shake it until it the weak fall out and only the strong are left. Get fighters and warriors for justice and true statesmen and women in office. Isn't that why we are here? Isn't it?
Just a small reminder here: We are actors, not audience, in our civic life, unlike previous generations.
My grandmother couldn't even vote, for pete's sake, until she was 42 years old because her mind was considered too itty bitty and frilly to comprehend the great issues of her day. Some of our grandparents and great-grandparents were other people's property, the equivalent of cattle. Some of our grandparents had their land seized and were imprisoned because of their ancestry a mere six decades ago.

Okay so now on further review of the facts found in the 9-11 report it becomes quite clear the BushCo is responsible.
By contrast to the AP, Newsday, and Fox News, a September 27 article by Washington Post staff writer Peter Baker reported that "Clarke sent Rice an al-Qaeda memo on Jan. 25, 2001, along with a strategy to 'roll back' the terrorist network, but the Bush team decided to conduct the policy review." Further, on the September 26 edition of ABC's World News Tonight, senior national correspondent Jake Tapper noted that Rice's account "is contradicted by the 9-11 Commission report, which describes Rice receiving, in January 2001, a comprehensive paper titled, 'Strategy for Eliminating the Threat from the Jihadist Networks of Al Qaeda.' " Similarly, on the September 26 edition of NBC's Nightly News, chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell reported that "five days after taking office," Rice received "a 13-page strategy paper from the Clinton team on how to fight Al Qaeda."
Media Matters has lots. Just sit back and enjoy they bring up more stuff that highlights their failure. Failure in the name of coming together after the terror attacks. Failure that 5 years on that have built upon.
But of course our stupid media swallows it up and then reports on how they see Americans taken they news. Even with poll after poll showing this ain't being swallowed no more by even some "knuckle dragging" right wingers. They are still going with the same formula. But then again stupid is or media's middle name.
CONDI LIES to Rebut Clinton
Following his death in 1902, Thomas Nast's obituary in Harper's Weekly stated, "He has been called, perhaps not with accuracy, but with substantial justice, the Father of American Caricature." Nast's campaign against New York City's political boss William Magear Tweed is legendary. He devised the Tammany tiger; popularized the donkey as the symbol for the Democratic Party and elephant, for the Republican Party; and created the "modern" image of Santa Claus. One of Nast's cartoons was said to have re-elected Lincoln in 1864, and Lincoln himself commented that Nast was his best recruiting sergeant. Grant attributed his election as President in 1868 "to the sword of [General Phil] Sheridan and the pencil of Nast."
CHICAGO -- Iva Toguri D'Aquino, who was once accused of being World War II broadcaster Tokyo Rose, died Tuesday in Chicago at age 90, a relative said.
Tokyo Rose was the name given to a female radio broadcaster responsible for anti-American transmissions intended to demoralize soldiers fighting in the Pacific theater during World War II.
D'Aquino, whose maiden name was Toguri, was born in Los Angeles on July 4, 1916, to Japanese immigrant parents.

It ain't matter of not trusting people. It's a matter of not meeting people. Certain animated TV series are done like live action TV series. Writers write it then the voice actors come in for a read and the writers work out what don't work out and make changes then they law down the audio track. Then sometime in the future the animation is done..., in a foreign country..., on the cheap.
Universal Press Syndicate, which distributes the strip, announced today that McGruder has decided not to resume the newspaper adventures of Huey and Riley after a six-month hiatus.
Last March, McGruder announced he needed a break to concentrate on "The Boondocks" for the Cartoon Network. Many papers around the country elected to publish reruns of the strip, which are slated to end on Nov. 25. Other papers, including the Chicago Tribune, used replacements for "The Boondocks," which debuted April 19, 1999.
Update: Found this while looking for more Boondocks pics on Flickr. Photo by member cindylu.
Just like the three republican revolt they don't seem to get it that this is the same thing. A minor distraction and not a real call for change. Note the lack of any democrats being covered of late.
These grade school level loud moufs need a little more this to happen to them. Most of the fox reporting staff are people who use to do fluff stories. You can't go from doing stories about stars and their new fragrance to try to smear politictians and a one time great , although rather republican like with things like NAFTA, leader of this nation.
I love it when he brings up the bloody smerking
We need to see more of this kind of "smack down". We people who are not afraid to say what is wrong and what needs to be done while smacking down the rhetoric.

I don't know about you but I did not choose a hp-compaq because I wanted or even knew it came with their own version of windoz xp. And was designed to boot up only windoz xp. If you install Linux you have to boot from CD.
Training wheels and a full padded suit not just a helmet and elbow pads. A 120GB hard drive split into just 2 partitions. 104GB and 8GB. Nice eh? Nothing like defraging or backing up or looking for stuff on a nice great big ol' drive.
No really since computers are so much faster these days you can throw out the old rules and just dump everything on one great big partition. Yeah right.
There is no installation disks. You don't get windoz xp you get their version on the hard drive itself. The second partition holds it along with all this lame trailware. You have to make a backup of this first thing and that's not even emphasized.
It is said in such a way that makes it seem like having this partition is the key to happiness in your computing life with hp-compaq. But if you don't first off make these discs. Which will just be spit out without any note to label them anything distinct but ya know you should put down 1 - 15 for the cd-rs or 1 - 3 for the dvds depending on what your system came with. Yeap no here's the OS and then the software extras. Just recovery disc 1 through whatever.
I went with the cheaper system hoping to have something to expand upon later but now. I think I should have done more looking up stuff instead of assuming things would be the same in the computing world still. This is really really dumb of me and of them. There are no ads or any information about baby's first computer setup.
you can only bring your system back to factory settings. You can't install hp-compaq windoz xp in anyway you want. 104GB C:\ and 8GB D:\ and all the trialware reinstalled. Factory settings are their words. I only found this out after getting the thing. Knowing this would have made it a no sale for sure.
Once you made your recovery discs you can play around with it a bit. You can make a recovery tools disc. Their name for a boot disc. That will let you delete and or resize the the great big c:\ partition some but not to anything close to sane.
Using GParted I was able to deleted the 8GB recovery partition. And resize the NTFS partition as well as create other partitions to hold programs I installed and data/stuff I download. It ain't much but it gives me some place to put Linux on here.
Osama Bin Laden slipped in the bathtub hit his head and died.
Reports on Iraq that say yes it is civil war and it makes terrorism worse. These make the republicans call anybody said this would happen a nay saying I told you so hind sighter.
And they'll promise to not cut and run or change their course or do anything different. While saying they are adapting and changing. And the media will heap praise on them for their words and completely ignore the lack of any change. And the invasion of a country that did nothing to and that we showed we couldn't even handle part will continue to ignored as well.
The world's first specially-bred hypoallergenic cats have gone on sale in the United States.
US biotech firm Allerca says it has managed to selectively breed them by reducing a certain type of protein that triggers allergic reactions.
The cats will not cause the red eyes, sneezing and even asthma that some cat allergy sufferers experience, except in the most acute cases.

Agreement Is Reached on Detainee Bill
By BRIAN KNOWLTON, International Herald Tribune
WASHINGTON, Sept. 21 — President Bush and three Republican senators said this afternoon that they had reached an agreement on legislation to clarify which interrogation techniques can be used against terror suspects and to establish trial procedures for those in military custody.
Now they got it to a point that they don't have to wait for elections to end before they flip right back on this issues. Now they will of course use this constantly during the elections to show they had some concerns. That they addressed them and straightened everything out just fine now.
But since those concerns were about terror. They can't openly discuss it all. But just rest assured that they are doing everything they can to keep you safe in secret. From people who maybe out to do some thinking about doing you some harm kinda.
Doing who knows what to who knows whom. Well at least until if not killed they get released and tell of their ordeal. And maybe gawd forbid seek justice. But I think they worked out a deal where nobody grabbed and tortured in secret prisons will have a chance at any justice at all.
Read THIS and spread the stroy everywhere.
What is not being discussed is the fact that people have and are being made to admit to things under torture. People that BushCo don't know if they are the enemy or not. Nobody brings up how people that grabbed it was proven they were innocent.
If you talk about first finding out if you have the wrong or right persons. You are said to care more about protecting the terrorist. That right there is the single most stupidest thing these jackasses have been saying yet. And of course the media don't make any note of it.
I am a black guy in a nice car. I get stopped by the police because black people steal cars. I get taken into custody and tortured for several days until I admit to being a car thief. Then I get tortured some more to tell them how many cars I have taken and when and what I did with them.
These Republicans are like all Republicans disingenuous corrupt lairs and thieves. When the elections are over there will be not talk of this revolt ever happening. And the media will of course make no note of it.

TORONTO, Sept. 18 - Canadian intelligence officials passed false warnings and bad information to American agents about a Muslim Canadian citizen, after which U.S. authorities secretly whisked him to Syria, where he was tortured, a judicial report found Monday.

The original commenter's words are not what are being attacked but by happenstance, I bet, the replier's are. The goal is to get this kind of crap in there with the dumb thought if it's just us "liberals" here. Then people will let their guard down and say stupid things. And while avoiding their evangel's who post this bullshit. They can act shocked and surprised by later comments on what was posted.
The thing to remember is that they do this for the people who are not here. They can say people are posting recipes for eating Jewish babies. They folks they are talking to will just take them at their word and repeat those words over and over again.
It is their all white all the time thinking that makes them not notice that to the left is rainbow.

To lesser informed Americans, doing whatever you can to protect your country, however dehumanizing, may seem a morally difficult but tragically necessary tradeoff for preserving our proverbial freedoms. But when experts who've used the methods declare in mainstream conventional outlets that they are useless and counterproductive ... well, that's a whole different ballgame.

OhYourGawd! I wish I had a steady girlfriend now. But I am going looking for sumata right now!
So what, asks Asahi Geino (9/14), do these three gals have in common, aside from being in their 40s and looking after other people's children? The answer is that they all moonlight for "delivery health" businesses, which in Japan is a euphemism for outcall sex services performed in hotels or at the customer's home.
Asahi Geino brought the three women together to conduct a panel discussion, in which they shared their thoughts and experiences concerning these lucrative moonlighting activities.
All three women told the magazine they found their jobs via the internet.
"I entered the keywords 'kou shuunyuu baito' (high-paying part-type work, a euphemism for sex-related services) into a search engine," says Akiko.
"It's unacceptable to think that there's any kind of comparison between the behavior of the United States of America and the action of Islamic extremists who kill innocent women and children to achieve an objective." - GW
Invade a country that has done us no harm in the name of keeping us from harm. Claim it is because you are in and ideological conflict with Islamic extremist. Shock and Awe killed thousands of innocent people. But that's okay because when ever you go to killing the innocent you blame it the "islamafascist" using people as human shields. Solders that die in your war against Islam keep getting called sacrifices.
No matter what happens you are supposed to believe. That's it just believe. What it is specifically will keep changing. Now what you have to believe is that there discourse among the republicans. And you believe that unlike McCain and Spector no is going just up change their views soon. Soon as elections are over then it will be right back to necon's war on Islam and by the way stuffing their pockets with money.

September 2006 marks the 50th anniversary of the introduction of the world's first commercial hard drive - the 305 RAMAC Computer, with its 350 Disk Storage Unit - that was designed and built right here in what would eventually become Silicon Valley. The Disk Storage Unit was introduced on Sept. 4, 1956, and the 305 RAMAC Computer was introduced on Sept. 13, 1956.Now your just messing with people. Besides I am having trouble filling up my 120gb.
That first computing unit had a total memory storage capacity of a whopping 5MB on 50 24-inch platters.
That was then. Now some people are predicting that as soon as 12 to 18 months from now, we'll see 1TB desktops coming into the market.

What they want is for you to go after them. And they will act as though they are being victimized for truth telling. Even though what they are trying to say with their lies is that they are very brave and strong. There will be nothing but whining about how wrong they are being treated.
And for them freedom of speech means they can say anything and nobody is supposed to have any other opinion or quote fact. Their words are to be set in stone, two stone tablets carried down from the mount and all.
And who will bring this message of the rights right? Why the same people who want to kill judges, track down reports children and 9/11 widows a glad the husbands are dead.

This new backlash against those who challenged the White House on the Plame case follows disclosure that one of the sources for Robert Novak’s July 14, 2003, column, which blew Plame’s cover, was Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage, who was not considered a close White House ally.
In a Sept. 2 front-page story, the New York Times reacted to this news by suggesting that special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald had been overzealous in pursuing the Plame investigation for more than two years, since Armitage had testified early on that he apparently was Novak’s principal source on Plame.

Democrats look down on the middleclassOr does he just need a small dose of reality?

Economic Snapshot for August, 2006
by Christian Weller
August 4, 2006
America’s middle class faces a slowing economy and a weakening labor market. In the current business cycle that began in March 2001, middle-class families borrowed record amounts of debt to manage in a slow-moving labor market, which now further declines. Amid sharp price increases, the federal government has piled on massive budget deficits, and the trade deficit has hit record highs. These debt burdens jeopardize future economic opportunities.

Doing the Enemy's Work
By David Warren
The case of the two Fox News journalists, held hostage in Gaza, is worth dwelling upon. They were released after their captors had made tapes of them dressed as Arabs and announcing they had changed their names and converted to Islam.
Lately I have been looking at the large -- at how the West is proving unable to cope with a threat from a fanatical Islamic movement, that it ought to be able to snuff out with fair ease. (See my column last Sunday.) But the large is often most visible in the small.
The degree to which our starch is awash is exhibited in the behaviour of so many of our captives, but especially in these two. They were told to convert to Islam under implicit threat (blindfolded and hand-tied, they could not judge what threat), and agreed to make the propaganda broadcasts to guarantee their own safety. That much we can understand, as conventional cowardice. (Understand; not forgive.) But it is obvious from their later statements that they never thought twice; that they could see nothing wrong in serving the enemy, so long as it meant they'd be safe.
I assume they are not Christians (few journalists are), but had they ever been instructed in that faith, they might have grasped that conversion to Islam means denial of Christ, and that is something many millions of Christians (few of them intellectuals) have refused to do, even at the cost of excruciating deaths. Christianity still lives, because of such martyrs. Not suicide bombers: but truly defenceless martyrs.
You don't necessarily have to be a Christian, to be Western. Two years ago, an heroic Italian captive, Fabrizio Quattrocchi, asked to make whimpering statements as part of the video of his execution in Iraq, ripped at his hood and instead declared, "This is how an Italian dies!" to his contemptible captors. He must have upset them: for they shot him instead of sawing off his head. In making his stand for human dignity, he also turned one of their propaganda videos, into one of ours.
But Quattrocchi had three friends, who all successfully begged for their lives. And the two Fox journalists, whom I will not stoop to name, begged for their lives even though, in retrospect, their lives probably weren't in danger.
Democratic strategist Susan Estrich laid out a pretty good case for why people should give up on Republicans as the party to handle national security. "They’ve given them six years and what have they got? They got a 9/11 commission that the Republicans fought and then the Republicans haven’t implemented the recommendations. They’ve gotten a war in Iraq which is against the wrong enemy, turned the whole world against us. They’ve got a Department of Homeland Security that can’t deal with the mess of Katrina. So I think the idea is when you got a party that can’t do the job, you might as well look to the other party for an improvement," she said.
Estrich countered with, "The fact that we don’t know about it means we should trust the people even though everything we know they’ve done, they’ve done wrong? They’ve bungled the war in Iraq, bungled the response to Katrina, bungled the response to the 9/11 commission, but because of what we don’t know about, we should trust them?"

We invaded a country that did us no wrong. A country our government supported for years. Now it is just war profiteers and sectarian violence. Even though what we see on TV here in the US is heavily filtered. You can see the horror in this invasion.
What do they see that they can just blame on those of us who are in opposition. As if it would go a lot better but if we didn't give off all these negative vibes.
It's nice to note that they are now scrambling to hold on to power to avoid the investigation into wrong doing. But remember this. There are people among us who believed in the farce regardless of it being right or wrong. People who that torture and death of innocent people is alright as long we are winning. That's why BushCo is now playing the blame game. Their actions are solid it just all of and are negative vibes that are wrong.

When shocking scenes of devastation unfolded on television screens last August, the world was incredulous that the sole superpower could get its own crisis so very wrong. Relief offers poured in from abroad. China chipped in $5 million. Tiny Brunei gave $1 million. Even countries with little to give dug deep. Bangladesh sent $1 million, Rwanda wired $100,000, and Afghanistan coughed up $99,800. The United Arab Emirates was the biggest donor, doling out more than $99 million. By year’s end, the U.S. State Department had received $126 million from 36 countries and international organizations. (Other countries, such as Canada, India, Kuwait, and Turkey chose to donate directly to the American Red Cross or the Bush-Clinton Hurricane Katrina Fund.)
The donated cash met a different fate. By late October, the State Department had allocated $66 million of the $126 million in international assistance to FEMA, which then granted it to the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR), the nonprofit aid arm of the United Methodist Church. With the funds, UMCOR established Katrina Aid Today, a consortium of nine national aid agencies dedicated to case-management work for Katrina evacuees. But to date, only $13 million has actually been disbursed, and it has been allocated almost exclusively to salaries and training for case workers, not to evacuees.
No no its Ray Nagin fault ain't it?
But just remember this. We are all little child like things compared to them. We think we know what we are talking about but we don't. So no matter what we say about what it is they do. We are never really talking about what they are doing or saying. Even if we have video of them saying it. It does not matter. We just don't get it, we just don't understand the seriousness of the world today. They have been patient with us so far. But with three incumbents loosing in the primary's, that patience is wearing thin.
How dare you talk about bringing accountability and investigations into war profiteering. Sure our country is hated more than ever in the world today. And it's being run into the ground internally were we can't even help a city rebuild or raise two building back up. But you got to understand that they control the three branches of or government. So you see it is not their fault. Just wait and you'll hear who is someday when they are done denying things are going badly. Like Iraq, it's them ungrateful Iraqis fault.

Somehow we aren't supposed to be talking about it. It might hurt the feelings of the other troops or something like that.
I was going to talk about an episode of the Brit TV show Rumpole of The Bailey in which a man confesses to a famous murder. He was a murderer alright but the one he did commit was not as important, special even. So he turns himself in for the much more glamorous one and gets wined and dined by the police. Well anyway I hope the jerks do some investigating of this karr person to see what he was really up to but I doubt it.

The British security services, MI5 and MI6, are understood to be dismayed that a number of sensitive details surrounding the alleged plot - including an FBI estimate that as many as 50 people were involved - were leaked to the media.
Don't yell ahhah or nothing they already made it clear that when they leak it's good. When somebody leaks about their wrong doing then it's bad and has to stop. So even though they have been asked to stop they still will, watch. Elections ya know.

After sending it in I heard nothing from them and when I called they said didn't ever receive nor was there any record of my RMA. This went on for a bit then I got letter telling me about how they are recalling and replacing the modems. Deny there is problem until you have a fix.
