Speaking of American Shame:
May I present Tom DeLay.
"The (House Ethics) committee's five Republicans and five Democrats voted unanimously to admonish the majority leader on two separate matters this week, sometimes in scolding tones. It deferred action on a third matter under grand jury investigation in Texas."
Mr. DeLay's response: To thank them for clearing him of all charges.
History may mark October 7, 2004 as the day the Republican Party abandoned their war against democracy in America in favor of an all out war against reality.

Thanks for mentioning it, O.P. I've been meaning to blog about it all day (perhaps I should open a *second* blog for all of my outtakes of things that *didn't* make it onto this one!
Imagine if a Democratic Congress had three times now reprimanded their own Majority Leader. Do you suppose the Right would be storming the castle with pitchforks and torches to throw the bum out?

These are the same guys that went after a man for oral sex (you could take that two ways). i disagreed with Clinton on many of his policies (NAFTA, GATT, Welfare Reform, Broadband giveaway, coddling the WTO; all these from a perspective of international labor) and so forth but i was horrified by the actions of the of the Republicans in the impeachment. i know Paul and Ed will start screaming about perjury and what Clinton did does not meet the legal standard (so Paul, Ed just dont bother). On the other hand you have the deaths and maimings of 1000s of Americans and Iraqis, the destabilization of a region, the polarization of Islam in opposition to us, and so forth. For the lead up to the war alone, i think impeachment would be necessary by the standard set by the republicans. On the other hand it is my sincere hope that Kerry will sign the accord establishing the ITC without waivers for American politicians; it is my sincere hope that Mr. Bush will be held legally accountable for what he has done to the people of Iraq.

How dare you disagree with Clinton! You can't have a mind of your own. It's forbidden! If you don't agree with one administration, then by the laws of nature , you have got to agree whole heartedly with the other! That means, you are never to think for yourself. Whatever Clinton & Kerry say, goes! (No matter how wrong they might be in the future). If you're voting for them, then that's it! You've signed a contract to let them think for you .
Haven't the republicans taught you *anything* ?! There is no "grey" area. You're either with them, or against them.
I'm surprised. YOU of all, people John. Sheesh. I thought you knew better.
Ps. I'm confused. How come the clock on the right hand side of this page says 103 days until the US has an elected President again? Is that the official day the administration will change?
Pps. I think you should put Kerry's picture there instead of Bush's. Because he will be the elected President, correct?

When you’re as dumb as Bush, you got to have some gimmick to keep people listening to you. Fear has worked well in the past, to hold people together. Bush is counting on that now. “WE HAVE NOTHING TO FEAR BUT BUSH HIMSELF.”

President Bush said Jesus was his favorite philosopher. ( However, Jesus was never a philosopher but lives the Divine plan on earth) and Jesus never called for war and especially a pre-emptive war. Bush contradicts the Faith of Jesus in his offensive stance about wars.
In addition, we believe that Bush used 9/11 and the Iraq war to cover the elitists control of the world's economy. Free Enterprise has been thrashed by both Bush and Clinton in the past few years and it was the elder Bush who proclaimed the new world order. Clinton then followed his lead getting both NAFTA and GATT passed with a Democrat controlled Congress joining hands with the Republicans. Then the young Bush pushed Fast Track through which in effect makes the Executive Branch the CEO of World Trade. He got it passed after several years of rejections under the cover of his wars.
The USA has gone through the most massive dislocation of workers in its history with a new working poor class replacing a middle class. Still Bush and the elite free traders made up of political leaders, vast trans-national corporations and world organizations like the WTO control the flow of wealth outside any real democratic process. The workers who are the core of the process have no voice in their destinies. A new type of slave trade has been established with workers put on a global trading block to compete with the lowest common denominators down to wage slave and even child labor.
The USA finds itself as an economic colonialist with its interests spread across the globe - War is used as a tool to protect these interests while free trade moves production from place to place based on the cheapest labor markets. Factories are now portable ready to move again and again in the event one location gets too strong in workers protection and pollution controls.
