Here's what will turn out to be a little bit of internet history. Just thought I would share it with you. The story behind it is here. This is in shockwave format so I think it's running in a loop. A minute or so should suffice. It's a bit of a download so 56 k people will hate me. It's worth it though....or maybe not!?


The Liberal media doesn't want you to see This ! A perfect example of the points made in the following post.


Give credit to the loyal opposition they have well learned the lesson that the media is the key to shaping a message and national attitudes. This story shows how hard they are working at it. With your money. Certainly we want the government to be transparent. The question comes down to how many people do you need to dispense information and how many do you need to shape a message? There is more rampant, blatant propaganda being pushed now than at any time I can remember. The Rovian model is a propaganda machine. As a 30 plus year veteran of broadcasting I can promise you they're pulling out all the stops here. From coming up with their own science, the argument of "Intelligent Design/Evolution" to the all too common practice of questioning the patriotism of those not like them. By the way I believe in intelligent design. I also believe that any "intelligent design" would involve evolution.
The Rush Limbaughs, Sean Hannitys and such are a part of a complete new media. A media that is there to convince you that there must be relentless pounding of the enemies of their choosing. Be it terrorists(only foreign ones of course), gays, liberals, Billary Clinton, non religious people et al. And by God, don't you mistake it, all the afore mentioned groups are in cahoots to destroy America. We are the good Americans, they are the BAD ones. It's not even a matter of debate anymore. Well for some it's not. Too bad. I for one will not lay down willingly. Look who the outsiders are now. Certainly not the repuglicans. They ARE the government. Time for the outsiders to pull them in again.

I Mean Those OTHER Guys!

Rush Limbaugh says HIS medical records should be private. Good enough. There's a reasonable argument for that. How about these people. Are they entitled to the same rights? One difference I see is that these people are being looked at for procedures that are in many cases legal, if surely controversial. Rushes case involves currently criminal behavior. I would also guess that these women weren't out railing against something that they themselves did.

Koufax Awards

For more good reading go here. The Koufax awards honor the best of the blogisphere on the left.

Daily Notes

Not a lot timely happening today. I saw Fuhrer Jarvis from USA Next on Hardball tonight. He was, as the right seems to be these days, Angry, meanspirited and hateful...towards AARP!? These people use the same tactic on everything. He could have been talking about anything. It's more about the people or organization than the issue. He barely mentioned Social Security. It was just the evil liberals blah blah blah thing. You've heard it a thousand times if you've heard it once. That's what gets me about these guys. They can't talk about the issues. It's always about how bad their challengers are. Don't believe me? Just listen to the wingnuts on the radio sometime and see how much INFORMATION you actually get out of it. How many viewpoints besides those other guys are evil. The first job of these guys..and gals, can't forget Ann Colter et al., is to demean and debase the other side. Second is to use glittering know, freedom, liberty, american etc. , to make their way look like the only way anybody but slime would go. They make me sick. They have made Liberal into a dirty word. I'm not afraid to call myself a Liberal because I use the dictionary for my speech. Not their newspeak. According to Webster, a well respected expert on the English Language: Liberal: associated with ideals of individual especially economic freedom, greater individual participation in government, and constitutional, political, and administrative reforms designed to secure these objectives. not bound by authoritarianism, orthodoxy, or traditional forms. marked by generosity . This is a liberal. If one doesn't somewhat adhere to these standards they aren't really liberals. I'm a dictionary liberal. I think this is one thing the left needs to do to change the debate. Start saying "I'm a dictionary Liberal". Unless we destroy the newspeak we are bound to loose. Be proud! Define yourself, don't let them define you!
I just saw the new big guy in Iraq saying he wants to set up a liberal Iraq. hehehe. They just got rid of the right winger and put in the lefties! HA!
I don't have a major problem with the traditional conservatives. The people running the repuklian party right now are not conservatives. They are globalists, corporatists, theocrats, moralists or fascists but not conservatives. No good conservative would support a record deficit. They don't traditionally support foreign intervention and would never support the infringements on citizen rights and freedoms that the Patriot act imposes. I keep trying to tell my conservative friends this but talk radio and the like has them so brainwashed that they can't see the truth for all the anger that has been engendered towards "liberals". I'm a Liberal Populist and that's a good thing.

Lions and Tigers and....Cartoons, Oh MY!

Read full Story Here. The intolerance and growing fascism from the fanatic God people has taken us forward...into the past, way past, like the dark ages. The latest, a blast at the movie "Shrek".

Shrek 2 is billed as harmless entertainment but contains subtle sexual messages," the coalition says on its website of the movie, a popular DVD rental. The group describes itself as a grassroots inter-denominational lobby with more than 43,000 member churches.
"Parents who are thinking about taking their children to see Shrek 2 may wish to consider the following."
The article then proceeds to describe one of the characters, an "evil" bartender (voiced by Larry King) who is a male-to-female transgender in transition and who expresses a sexual desire for Prince Charming.
In another identified scene, Shrek and Donkey need rescuing from a dungeon by Pinocchio and his nose, which is made to extend as an escape bridge by getting the wooden boy to lie about not wearing women's underwear.

Ok, is this harmless goofy fun or secret "gay indoctrination". Lets ask some others like Milton Berle who regularly dressed in womens clothes in search of a laugh. Or maybe Sid Caesar or Johnny Carson or Flip Wilson as Geraldine. How about Laurel and Hardy who were occasionally know to share a bed on film. I guess those were the bad ol days. Now is the time we can hope to raise our children with no hint of anything "religiously offensive." Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't all this "moral" brew ha ha turning in to the right wing version of politic correctness? Hey, I'm in favor of a certain amount of civility, and free expression in the appropriate places, but it seems to me its getting far enough out of line to start fighting back. I think these people are really a bunch of sadly sick people with serious sexual hangups. Far worse hangups than the people they disparage. Have you ever noticed that they always equate their "moral" values with things that have to do in some way with sex? Whether it be gays or abortion or birth control or porn...its always about sex, sex, sex. Where's the outrage when movies and television pump out gratuitous violence, anger, hate and "getting even". No, the people that "kick ass" are reviered! Don't moral values have more to do with love and tolerance? I guess we just happen to be of different religions or something. I'm not sure what God these people are listening sure ain't mine! Who would Jesus hate? By the way, I'm in favor of sex...I think...Hard to remember that far back. (G)

pResident Smoked Pot?

Quick note. Maybe more later.
Apparently there are some new tapes out that have captured Geo. Bush basically admitting to inhaling. I think it's a lie. How could he do that and STILL only be able to see the most narrow of views? Obviously it didn't have the hoped for effect. He also said he wasn't going to admit it cuz he "wants to be a leader". Something to the effect of how would you like it if your kid said, the president smoked pot so I think I will try it.
My question is; how would you like it if your kid smoked pot and then refused to tell anyone cuz that's what the president did? I guess it was better to admit to being an alcoholic. See what I mean about the narrowest of views?

Stop Them! Old People Are Ruining America!

A right wing lobbying group, USA Next , has hired veterans of the boat veterans campaign to straighten out all those old people who obivously hate America.Click on the headline for link to entire NY Times article. This time it's social security and the enemies of America are the AARP.
Of course the Mighty Wurlitizer member will claim no connection to the White House, just as in the smear boat campaign. Kinda like the good cop, bad cop thing. As leader Jarvis says:

"We totally support the president's boldness on Social Security, but we don't coordinate with the White House or the Hill. We know the people at the White House agree with us and we agree with them."............"It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that the White House doesn't want anything to do with a group that is attacking the AARP," the official said, adding, "We are not going to drag them into this mess."
USA Next has been portraying AARP as a liberal organization out of step with Republican values, and is now trying to discredit its stance on Social Security. USA Next's campaign has involved appearances by its leaders, including Art Linkletter, its national chairman, on Fox News and various television programs. Its commercials are to be broadcast around the country in coming weeks.

AARP a "liberal" organization? Gee, you mean they side with those who think we have an obligation to take care of the old, frail and downtrodden? That we should care about each other? Why , I'm shocked! Who would have ever thought that they wouldn't side with the "we have enough to take care of ourselves, tough luck for you" crowd.
Easy to say if fortune smiled on you. Unfortunately most of us lead real lives as real people facing untold roadblocks to fortune and comfort. Many may have even given that money to others to help people important to them in a time of trial. But just listen to the wingers, it's still all your fault. If you were smart and greedy like them you wouldn't have this problem.

Mr. Jarvis said donors have included food, nutrition, energy and pharmaceutical companies, which have given money to support various advertising campaigns.

Lets see..the member supported or corporate supported group...which way should I go here? Who has my best interests at heart?

Maybe the ad will go something like this:
" I was there when these people were in their earning years. Those bills for college, a home, car, health insurance...totally fake. Why, they wrote those bills themselves!!!! I was there and I don't remember any bills coming in at all. Then when it was time to stand up for America they voted for liberals! Threw their credibility over the fence. Do you want to give your money to this lazy, lying bunch of liberals? I think not. Tell your congressman to privatize social security. Keep YOUR money in YOUR hands and let the ill prepared figure it out for themselves!
Ok, here's your job. Write your own commercial for USA Next. How good are you at smacking the AARP? See ya in the comments.

Rush is Right?

It appears the "Truth Detector" is in need of a rechargable battery.
From the Palm Beach Sun-Sentinel:

The court battle over Limbaugh's medical records has crippled the criminal investigation into his drug use for more than a year. Investigators seized the records after learning that Limbaugh received about 2,000 painkillers, prescribed by four doctors in six months, at a pharmacy near his Palm Beach mansion. They contend that Limbaugh engaged in ``doctor shopping,'' or illegally deceived multiple doctors to receive overlapping prescriptions.Limbaugh has maintained his innocence throughout the investigation and argues that the case threatens the privacy rights of all Floridians _ a point which has drawn the support of the American Civil Liberties Union. Limbaugh has acknowledged he became addicted to pain medication, blaming it on severe back pain. In October 2003, he took a five-week leave from his afternoon radio show to enter a rehabilitation program. __

More blantant hypocrisy on the right. I never get to listen to Rush Limbaugh because I am doing my own radio thing at the time. I have no idea what his rationalizations are. Maybe someone could fill me in? Why is he so interested in HIS PERSONAL privacy but still fine with the government interfering with other Americans privacy in parts of the Patriot Act?
Why would he like to lock up the drug users and scum of the earth but remain wish free when he appears to have violated the drug laws. What's the big coverup?
When talking about violations of our freedom I often hear conservatives say "if you have nothing to hide it shouldn't be a problem". Suddenly Rush Limbaugh is fighting to avoid letting the law find out how "innocent" he is. For the record, I'm in favor of privacy but opposed to hypocrisy. If he is going to stand for HIS freedom he ought to stand for OURS too. That includes all violations of our constitutional rights to privacy, not just the ones that happen to effect him. If he wants to solve his drug problem with treatment(my educated guess is 5 weeks didn't get him far at all) why shouldn't he support this for others with a drug problem. He was fortunate he was wealthy and didn't have to steal or commit other crimes related to his addiction. My friends, some are not that fortunate. Usually you figure when one gets a chance to "walk a mile in my shoes" one would "get" it. Apparently the rules only apply to those "other" people. You know, the ones that are really harming America. Geez, what planet do these people come from!?

Presidental Approval Ratings

According to Rassmussen Reports the pResident enjoys a 51% approval rating. 28% strongly approve and 32% strongly disapprove. Watching him lately it seems he is talking to the press and public a little more. He seems a little less like the anti-christ in his presentation. Are the actual policies any improvement. Can't see that yet. Comments?

Welcome To Real America

I've created this space especially for Roswell New Mexico. We welcome all stripes, types and species interested in a better America. Roswell wants to talk to you! I hope this forum will be similar to our talk show. While it will be obvious your host believes in a left of center America, we'd love to have a conversation with one and all. I truly believe Populism is the key. The more the rightful guardians of this country, the American people, take part and monitor our leaders the better America will be. Let's talk. Like it or not, we are all in this thing called America together!

Can You BELIEVE this stuff.

Ok, quick rundown for all of you who aren't up on the "Jeff Gannon" story.

Basically, he is a fake news reporter for a fake news service who also happens to be a loyal gay escort Republican with access to information that would likely only be available to someone with high access to the Mighty Wurlitzer. This story throws up so many questions that one could barely fit them all in one post. The biggest question is why isn't the damned liberal media all over this soup of conservative goo. A few in the media do get it. Link
