Race? RACE?? Did anyone see anyone's race mentioned anywhere?
Okay, now they're just makin shit up.
(More so than usual I mean)
BTW, on a slightly related tangent - I heard Tony Snow made a comment last week, to someone who had "Riding Dirty" as their ringtone. He said, "Play that funky music, white girl!"
I'm a white girl - should I be offended? Anyone wanna feign outrage at his 'racist' comment? No?
(Sorry, just feeling particularly snarky today)

Of course there will be mass casualties for both sides. IMPEACH Bush and Cheney for the sake of the entire world with their NEW WORLD ORDER. Force Congress to take the ability away from the private banks to make our money. Demand an audit of our nation's gold, they are refusing to give us.
Number 1 rule in fighting terrorism is, you have to cut off the money supply from the terrorists, the elite rich bankers standing by ready to control the world. That's why these Bush puppets don't control the borders, they want us all mixed together. Stick a fork in us, we're done. Sold us out. Is Iran next? A police state will come, omg I felt safer on September 12th, 2001, than I do right now. Is it too late?

The Washington Times isn't just a tool of the Whitehouse. They've got their old "editor of the editorial page" (Tony Snow) as the current Press Secretary. No surprise there really.
But it sure would be nice if the Dems would make this fact well known in order to downplay the significance of the Washington Times. And don't forget that the self-proclaimed "Second Coming of Christ" is the founder of that paper.

Dear Congress and Voters
Our heart got sucked into their problems
by the slaughter of our own on our shores.
With what indifference to life though have our minds been numbed
to continue to allow this abhorrent slaughter abroad?

Bush and Cheney should have been impeached long ago. I don't think it will happen until the public demands it.
888-355-3588 (toll free/Senate)
866-808-0065 (toll free/House)
Put your best effort on the House since they bring Articles of Impeachment and the Senate tries.
There are certainly plenty of reasons for impeachment and it's long overdue. The Bush Adm. is way beyond control and yet nothing will happen until we the people make it happen. We need to do more than just cut off funding for the war.
It's an inescapable fact that we are no longer a free people. Every facet of our lives is being spied on without warrants. So if an illegal war or election fraud isn't enough surely warrantless spying makes the cut.
Call your Congress critters and demand impeachment. Keep those phones ringing off the hook.

Today, VP Cheney basically called about 75% of Americans traitors who are giving comfort to Osama bin Laden. I hope this hits the list of infamous statements. Every time the going gets tough, Cheney pulls this out of his hip pocket. Since most of us now oppose staying in Iraq, which has nothing to do with Osama bin Laden, Cheney has gone too far. There are no new ideas being offered by the Administration. They have castigated their military leaders, and replaced them with new scapegoats. Meanwhile, our men and women are dying, as hundreds of Iraqi children, women, and men each day. Sadly, this is a civil war. There is no longer an enemy, just a nation of people killing each other.
Below is a watered down quote from Yahoo News,
by David Millikin Sun Jan 14, 7:03 PM ET
US Vice President Dick Cheney accused critics of the administration's new strategy in Iraq of playing into the hands of Osama bin Laden and global terrorism.

Cheney must be talking about Chuck Hagel.
Not really though. As far as I can tell, Mr. Hagel is, and has been, rolled out as the backup Republican presidential choice in the event of a complete Iraq war meltdown, (if you think it's bad now, wait till Bush's strategy bears fruit).
Hagel is a very deceptive and brazenly corrupt politician. He was stealing elections in a wholesale fashion before it was even fashionable.

When the Republicans get a little too angry at a story, you can be sure there is something very damaging in some other aspect of that story.
A story about a REAL grass roots movement in America turns into a story about a man screaming into a microphone that filters all other sounds but his screaming.
When Bush says he doesn't really think much about Osama Bin Laden anymore at a presidential debate, it turns into a raging rant about how Kerry brought up Cheney's gay sister.
A story about Bush's preferential treatment in the service turns into a big story about a typewriter.
There are a thousand other diversions that have been used, but I'm talking to the choir.

I saw Greg Palast on Democracy NOW! yesterday. He has done an in-depth job of studying the oil history of Iraq (armed madhouse).
The oil companies created Iraq thru their minions in government who feign loyalty to the people, while stabbing us in the back.
Palast indicates that Iraq was originally formed to keep its vast oil in the ground ... to keep prices up.
That worked until peak oil, and now the oil must come out of the ground.
The strategy of the oil baron in chief is the same as the oil barons in the seats of power in other countries in both western and eastern civilizations.
We are now in a struggle for survival of civilization based upon an oil founded economy. Those who control the oil will control who stays oil civilized.
By civilization I mean the normal behavior we describe as civil behavior ... that is civilization. Oil civilization is that which must have oil to behave civilized. Without the oil all hell breaks loose.
Before our very eyes this civilization is crumbling into Amerika the torturer, Iraq the torturer, Iran the torturer, etc. And all the rest are headed to the same place following the "decisions" of the duhcider in chief.
Civilization is crumbling into warring factions of barbarians sick with lust for what oil brings them (money and power).
The unCivilized in chief pounding war drums from the mental dungeon of blindness, bigotry, and hatred.

Congress is completely impotent to stop the Cheney "Total War" plan laid out by Ledeen, Wurmser, Wolfowitz, Feith, Perle and within the PNAC. The supposed "Power Of The Purse" does not exist any longer. Not long after Bush took office, Rumsfeld set about "disappearing" what he claimed was $2.3 TRILLION from the DOD budget. He made the announcement of its disappearance just one day prior to 9/11:
T H I S

CBS Reports Pentagon
Cannot Account for $2.3 Trillion
"'According to some estimates we cannot track $2.3 trillion in transactions,' Rumsfeld admitted. $2.3 trillion — that's $8,000 for every man, woman and child in America."
--- CBS, 1/29/02
DOD Comptroller (and Mossad agent), Dov Zakheim stole it (the actual amount is $7 trillion) and off-shored it to Israel. Cheney doesn't need the money from Congress to continue the Globalist Domination Agenda on behalf of his clients (Rockefeller, The Crown, Israel, Exxon, Halliburton, etc.) - it was "set aside in advance of his 9/11 False Flag Operation.
David Rockefeller & Dick Cheney - American Traitors:
Cheney laughs about lying to his constituents in order to get elected:
Dov Zakheim and the 9/11 Conspiracy:
Dov and the World Trade Center:
Perhaps not coincidentally in May 2001, when Dov served at the Pentagon, it was an SPS (his firm's) subsidiary, Tridata Corporation, that oversaw the investigation of the first terrorist attack on the World Trade Center in 1993. This would have given them intimate knowledge of the security systems and structural blueprints of the World Trade Center. From the '90s through 2001, WTC Security was handled by Securacom, a Kuwait-American firm, on whose board Marvin Bush, the president's brother, sat. After 9/11, Securacom was let go, changed its name to Stratosec, and was delisted from the Stock Exchange in 2002.
C O I N C I D E N C E ? ? ?
The proof of this will be revealed when the war continues despite Congress cutting off the funding. Waterboard Dov Zakheim and you will learn how the entire oiperation was PRE-FUNDED prior to 9/11. The plan proceeds apace. Chaos in Iraq was part of the plan. So is a false flag attack coming any day, designed to appear to come from Iran, in order to justify "first-use" of offensive nuclear weapons.
Israel is 100% in charge. Chertoff is their coverup specialist in the US, and now Lieberman has been put in charge of the committee in charge of the oversight of Chertoff (fox/hen house). Chertoff was the head of Operation Greenquest - the coverup of the 9/11 money trail.
Rummy and Cheney drilled for Armageddon for years:
The Armageddon Plan:
During the Reagan era Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld were key players in a clandestine program designed to set aside the legal lines of succession and immediately install a new "President" in the event that a nuclear attack killed the country's leaders. The program helps explain the behavior of the Bush Administration on and after 9/11.
9/11 co-cospirator - Former Comverse CEO Kobi Alexander is wanted on Federal Charges - yet he is in the WITNESS PROTECTION PROGRAM inside the US? Who is Cheney REALLY protecting? His own criminal enterprise, which GHW Bush is the head of.

"Lawyer Says FCC Ordered Study Destroyed
From Associated Press, September 14, 2006
By John Dunbar
The Federal Communications Commission ordered its staff to destroy all copies of a draft study that suggested greater concentration of media ownership would hurt local TV news coverage, a former lawyer at the agency says.
The report, written in 2004, came to light during the Senate confirmation hearing for FCC Chairman Kevin Martin.
Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif. received a copy of the report “indirectly from someone within the FCC who believed the information should be made public,” according to Boxer spokeswoman Natalie Ravitz.
Adam Candeub, now a law professor at Michigan State University, said senior managers at the agency ordered that “every last piece” of the report be destroyed. “The whole project was just stopped _ end of discussion,” he said. Candeub was a lawyer in the FCC’s Media Bureau at the time the report was written and communicated frequently with its authors, he said.
In a letter sent to Martin Wednesday, Boxer said she was “dismayed that this report, which was done at taxpayer expense more than two years ago, and which concluded that localism is beneficial to the public, was shoved in a drawer.”
"In the letter, Boxer asked whether any other commissioners “past or present” knew of the report’s existence and why it was never made public. She also asked whether it was “shelved because the outcome was not to the liking of some of the commissioners and/or any outside powerful interests?”"

The prestitutes in bed with their propaganda masters are everywhere.
The rightwing MSM labors incessantly to deceive the masses. We know that right wing Chief Justice Rehnquist was a drug addict a la Rush Limbaugh, and even more hypocritical. He looked like the first Borg on the court.
Nevertheless a lawyer is preaching sympathy for the hypocrites.
When will the republicans learn that the "minds" of the neoCons have infected them?

I wish someone would bring up Tony Snow's comment regarding the loss of our troops. Snow said,
"IT'S ONLY A NUMBER."
This is the sum of conservative thinking and feeling about the loss of our young men and women dying for this horrific quest for domination and oil Bush's cartel has. Our children mean nothing to them.
Democrat's comments are always out of context and emphasized but NO ONE brings up the horrendous comments by Snow, Coulter, Limbaugh, etc.

A good start in educating yourself on how the corporate media has been taken over with big money from certain interests (not ours), is David Brock's "The Republican Noise Machine". The Washington Times is a MAIN COG in the Republican Noise Machine, according to David Brock, who used to work there and knows how this stuff works from the inside. David Brock runs www.mediamatters.org , you should check it out, if you've never been there, and get that book! That book was the first important thing I read, when I discovered how the corporate media has been taken over with a biased agenda by millionaires and billionaires, it started back in the Nixon days. They've been slowly chipping away for decades, until we now have FOX news, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly, NY Post, Washington Times, as well as coordinated think tanks to START the stories, like American Enterprise Institute and CATO Institute, whom the media never label as "rightwing think tanks". But Brock's book has "followed the money" in all of this, to expose a coordinated effort by them to take over the corporate mainstream media.

Big Dan, There is a great article in this month's Playboy about the takeover of the media by a few. How the regulations have been changed to allow this. And how the radio stations have become 90% religious without opposing views being offered.
I don't care how the information gets out, just so a few more people become aware of media control over our minds. I know my husband will read something in Playboy versus books I bring home.
ARRY : Snow's comment just last week "I just love and respect my boss." Now imagine Obama or Edwards saying that and how the conservatives would twist the context.
Oh, off topic but also very intersting, in Playboy there is a list of Religous Repubicans and their sex antics. Funny, the loudest protesters have the dirtiest laundry.

Somewhere down the line soon, you will start seeing smearing comments against Democracy NOW!, because I think it's getting really big. First they ignore it, then they make fun of it (that's what's going to happen...smearing/making fun of it), then they fight you, then you win...
I predict somewhere in the NEAR FUTURE, you will start seeing comments by the Republican Noise Machine in the CMSM, beginning to smear Democracy NOW!, LINK-TV, and Free Speech TV. Because about a year ago, no one heard of these things. Now, when I ask someone, they say, "Oh, yeah...they're great!" I can see it happening right now.
You saw what the GOP tried to do to PBS...but PBS has govt funding. They can't even ATTEMPT to do that to LINK & FSTV...the only thing they can do is try to stop it from being aired.

Satellite TV is responsible for this. Cable STILL won't carry these channels, and cable had a monopoly on our TV's, until DISH came along. DirecTV had only LINK on channel 375, and won't carry Free Speech TV...that's why I have DISH. I stumbled upon these 2 channels by accident...that's not why I even got DISH. I got it because it was much cheaper than cable. I had it about YEAR, before I even knew they were on DISH. I think I happened to notice something, like one of them was playing "Bush's Brain"...and then I checked them out, why they were airing things like that, and no one else was...

From DearKitty's link:
To get their message out, the conservatives have a powerful media empire, which churns out and amplifies the message of the day - or the week - through a wide network of outlets and individuals, including Fox News, talk radio, Rush Limbaugh, Oliver North, Ann Coulter, as well as religious broadcasters like Pat Robertson and his 700 Club. On the web, it starts with TownHall.com
Fueling the conservative message machine with a steady flow of cash is a large group of wealthy individuals, including many who serve on the boards of the Big 80.
