Crazy Liberal 

A well-known overseas commentator had these remarks today, much like remarks a majority of people around the world have been making:

"... Moreover, the examining of the developments that have been taking place, in terms of killings in our countries and your countries, will make clear an important fact; namely, that injustice is inflicted on us and on you by your politicians, who send your sons - although you are opposed to this - to our countries to kill and be killed.

Therefore, it is in both sides' interest to curb the plans of those who shed the blood of peoples for their narrow personal interest and subservience to the White House gang.

We must take into consideration that this war brings billions of dollars in profit to the major companies, whether it be those that produce weapons or those that contribute to reconstruction, such as the Halliburton Company, its sisters and daughters.

Based on this, it is very clear who is the one benefiting from igniting this war and from the shedding of blood. It is the warlords, the bloodsuckers, who are steering the world policy from behind a curtain.

As for President Bush, the leaders who are revolving in his orbit, the leading media companies and the United Nations, which makes laws for relations between the masters of veto and the slaves of the General Assembly, these are only some of the tools used to deceive and exploit peoples.

All these pose a fatal threat to the whole world. ..."

Republican Family Values 

Sam Walls says his day as a girl are in the past.

"A candidate for the Texas House rejected calls to withdraw from the race after photos of him in women's clothing began circulating.

Sam Walls, 64, said he will not give in to ``blackmail'' from opponents who are trying to use ``very old, personal information'' to force him out of the race.

-snip-

GOP leaders urged him to withdraw when the pictures surfaced last week in two communities south of Fort Worth.

The photos were apparently obtained by a company that repossessed a mobile home registered to Wells, according to court records.

He said his family had ``dealt with'' the issue, and he apologized to supporters for any embarrassment caused by ``a small part of my personal past.'' "

War Against Those with No Guilt 

Bush reminded us last night:

"'This is a war against people who have no guilt in killing innocent people,' he said in describing the gravity of Washington's war on terrorism."


Yes, a war against those with no guilt. Maybe that's the problem. Maybe he should be looking to take on those who are guilty. Just a thought.

Convey It 

The AP tell us that

"Karlyn Bowman, who does research on public opinion and politics at the American Enterprise Institute, a conservative think tank in Washington, said Bush knows there is widespread anxiety throughout the United States about the situation in Iraq.

'He has to convey being in charge and having a clear plan of what's ahead,' Bowman said. 'And I'm sure he will express compassion for the families' of those killed in the fighting."


Perception is everything. He doesn't have to actually be in charge, or actually have a plan. He doesn't even need to have compassion for families.

He just need to convey the notion, and express compassion.

Question for the President: How can the Air Force stop a small plane over your ranch with no specific information that it was about to happen, but can't do the same for four planes that had been reported as hijacked after receiving warnings a month earlier that planes might be hijacked for nefarious purposes?

It's Easy, Kos 

Kos asks a good question:

"But why is Kerry running for president?"


The answer is easy. He was selcted to run for president. The titans of industry, those captains of capitalism, have surveyed the landscape. The really liked Bush, but they have gotten all they need from him. There are no rules governing their factories or corporate behavior. They pay no taxes.

But Bush scares them. He's ruining world markets for them. It is harder to sell McCola to other countries. Bush has also stolen all of the surplus and funnelled it to his closest allies. He's waking up an opposition. People are waking from their consumer sleep. And that's not good.

The powers that be looked around and chose Kerry. He is, like they are, in the club. He was in Skull and Bones. He is extremely wealthy. He knows who butters his bread. He won't upset business, and quite possibly may be just enough to calm the world into buying American (Made in China) again. He'll certainly lull Americans back to sleep.

This, Kos, is why he is in the race. The extremely wealthy wanted a change. Not a big Howard Dean change. Just a little adjustment. When it was decided, Bush no longer got a free pass by the media. Suddenly questions are asked - about things from long ago.

Those in charge understood that they could rely on the "anyone but Bush" crowd to literally approve anyone. So they chose someone and said "this is your anyone." People no longer like Pepsi, so they may have Coke. Democracy in action - a choice between two pre-selected options.

Despite your venom for Nader, this is why Nader runs, too. It is absurd to live in a democracy and be forced to choose bewteen two extremely wealthy business people. Yes, the Bush administration is in a special class all to itself. But Kerry isn't going to make the world a great place. He'll enable it to continue to move along without any major changes to our lifestyles. We'll still pollute. We'll still ship jobs overseas. We'll still be in Iraq.

With the prize of the White House comes many great things. Why is Kerry running? Why shouldn't he? They are trying to give the office to him.

Don't Forget The Oil 

Everything in Iraq has to do with oil and military budgets. Never forget it.

Will we hand off on June 30th? If it is good for oil and military budgets.

Will the fighting stop? If it is good for oil and military budgets.

Should we send more troops? More contractors? Why are gas prices going up? Which countries can help us? Who should lead the new Iraq? Should this newspaper be in operation? Is this mosque important?
