Ladies And Gentlemen

This is Golden especially if you know about Evanston. A rather "muticutural" city.

How Heartening

If the darned librl media doesn't want to be fair I wish they would at least Inform!

"We are on the edge of civil war," said Noah Feldman, a New York University professor and chief U.S. adviser to Iraq on the writing of the country's new constitution.
Yet, somehow this sharp surge in deadly bombings, assassinations and kidnappings in Iraq has occurred largely under the radar in the United States.
No public figures have risen this week to decry this most recent carnage, no one is breaking into regular programming on cable news shows.
Perhaps Americans have simply become numb to the background hum of Iraqi violence. Perhaps the lack of graphic images on television mean that medium doesn't know how to cover the story. Perhaps, more cynically, Iraqis killing Iraqis is not as compelling a story.

Wheres The Rest Of The Story?

What the hell is going on around here!? First this.

Sir Menzies Campbell, Liberal Democrat foreign affairs spokesman, said the leaked minute showed Blair had “agreed to an illegal regime change with the Bush administration. It set out to create the justification for going to war. It was to be war by any means.”
Downing Street claimed the document contained “nothing new”.

Nothing new in England because they actually have a media.
Now we get this.

THE capture of a supposed Al-Qaeda kingpin by Pakistani agents last week was hailed by President George W Bush as “a critical victory in the war on terror”. According to European intelligence experts, however, Abu Faraj al-Libbi was not the terrorists’ third in command, as claimed, but a middle-ranker derided by one source as “among the flotsam and jetsam” of the organization.
I've been reading these storys for days online in papers around the world but barely a peep here. How, with the major implications these stories have, could any responsible news media not run these as big stories? I'm not much of a conspiracy theorist but this is just unbelievable. I can think of no other reason to ignore these stories. The first story is really nothing new to many of us but some have denied this till they were blue in the face. Of course they may not be interested in the truth. The second story, I don't know. I'd like to hear more. These stories should be in our media just so we can add it to the national dialogue. Let's investigate at least.
We are often caught wondering why so many around the world have negative feelings about America. Maybe we don't understand because we aren't hearing the whole story.

Recommended Reading

I made a comment recently that I understood that it wasn't the Bush show in Washington...It's PNAC that is running the country. Unfamiliar with PNAC? Knowing about them will give you much more insight to what is happening right now. Heres the Wikopedia entry. Here's their official website. Here's info on why people like me think they are so dangerous. And here's some more. If you really want to know who's running the country and policy right now....whatever your opinion, for good or bad, I recommend that you get familiar with them. As you will see, they are the ones in charge.

Leo Strauss

I've noted in the past that PNAC was the main driver of policy in America today. Now please meet their teacher(you know, those damned liberal colleges), Leo Strauss:

Like Thomas Hobbes, Strauss believed that the inherently aggressive nature of human beings could only be restrained by a powerful nationalistic state. "Because mankind is intrinsically wicked, he has to be governed," he once wrote. "Such governance can only be established, however, when men are united – and they can only be united against other people."
Not surprisingly, Strauss' attitude toward foreign policy was distinctly Machiavellian. "Strauss thinks that a political order can be stable only if it is united by an external threat," Drury wrote in her book. "Following Machiavelli, he maintained that if no external threat exists then one has to be manufactured (emphases added)."

"Because mankind is intrinsically wicked" ....Gee we don't even start from the same basis, I don't think we are going to find much agreement here.

"And they could only be united against other people". ...Gee I seem to often see others united or rooting FOR or WITH the other. Do you ever see that, at sporting events or political rallys or Religious services? I guess we are once again not going to find much agreement here. No wonder I don't like these guys. I totally disagree with them from the get go. I'm not just a bush basher?!

More brilliance from Leo later.

Coffee Table

What's on your mind? What should we be talking about right now. Grab a cup and let's talk. Click the comments and go for it!

The Leg Bone Connects To The Thigh Bone

Health care providers can charge the government for emergency care provided to illegal aliens beginning Tuesday. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services issued final guidance Monday that sets up a system for reimbursement. Lawmakers set aside $1 billion over four years for the program, created by Medicare legislation passed in 2003.
For hospitals in border states, the additional money can mean the difference between running a profitable business or an unprofitable one, said Don May, vice president of policy for the American Hospital Association. ...Here

So I guess this means we do pay for illegals health care. Shouldn't citizens be in line for that first? I know hey what are they going to do, turn them away? We need a complete rethink of our health care system, immigration policy/security and relations with Mexico. First factor, we have the most expensive health care system in the world.......You take it from there.

It's A Brave New World

It's time to bring America together and for a new consensus, a new message to bring to the world. To bring us back to the upbeat positive, admired country instead of the burdened by fear, feared country. I think we the people share very common goals. I share many goals with the President. I think worldwide democracy and freedom is a good and admirable goal. I would be in favor of any postitive steps we could take to further that goal. I think we should all be responsible in our own little ways to relieve and not increase the burden on others. I agree that America should be strong enough to protect it's self from any acts of aggression and when agressed upon has the right to retaliate. I believe a good education and free flow of ideas are key to our survival. I'm for religious freedom and freedom from government intervention in our personal matters. I want to be a part of the greatest country in the world. The problem comes in on how we attain these goals. If we all can unite just enough to understand that the large majority of us has the best interests of America at heart then we can get down to the discussion of how and why. It's a brave new world.

Brains Turned To Mush

The beginning of the talk show is about to arrive and I can hardly wait to talk to you all. There are so many things that have come up that it's important we talk about. Many have been brainwashed and it's time to bring a little balance to American life. I was just reading this story(click on the headline for the sadness in full) it's about Rush and his legal and drug problems...some points that need to be made:

They can't get him on ideas, so what else can the lefties do? I happen to be listening to his show and this seems to be bothering him as much as Air America does. (isn't that some kind of radio thing?)

CAN'T GET HIM ON IDEAS!!!!?????BAWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA . Notice you never see Rush on these debate shows where his bullshit could be called and his lies exposed? Nope, Rush is right only if you scratch the surface. Any deeper and he's out.....not really informed on current political discourse if they don't know what Air America is. Or is they jess predtindin not to no. I'm sorry, I hate to stereotype but geez is there any depth at all to these people.

You gotta pity the poor Left-Wing Democrats; their party is imploding; they haven't had an original idea since . . . well, never! Poor little Democrats, like billionaire George Soros, for .example--always shoveling millons of dollars to prop up the left side of the garage! Our President is treating those anti-American idiots as if they were decent people!

Anybody care to research where the original ideas that actually form our society come from?
Maybe like, proper health, worker benefits, social security, The 8 hour work week, civil rights and equality, the list goes on. Don't pity me, cuz were are taking our country back. Oh there's the wicked witch of the west George Soros. I guess the good witches are this guy and maybe this guy .
Damn that Bush for acting like he is pResident of ALL the people!

While Kerry lost we now know that the democratic party cant function without Soros and his Shadow Party.

See above good witches to see a real shadow party.

Wonder where all these people were when Kerry was refusing to let his war records be released!! I suppose he should have been exempt since he was running for a position of trust.

Gee I bet we the people could make him do it if he were President. You had to go and vote for the other monkey though.

I think the liberals are hurting themselves by attacking Rush. I know someone who became addicted to prescription painkillers and if I do my guess is most people do. I hurt my back once and were it not for my need of gainful employment to feed, clothe, etc myself, I think I could have become addicted. Going after Rush may be red meat for the hard core Liberals. I doubt if it changes many minds.

Seriously, Thank you for being responsible enough to catch it in time and be a responsible, contributing American. I think that is what we need for all of us. You just stated how easy it would be to fall prey. Be careful, that is called empathy. As far as I can see you are on your way to becoming an evil liberal so I wouldn't practice it if you want to be a conservative. Just have empathy for Rush...thats all.

I LOVE Rush Limbaugh AND the "half" of his brain that he DOESN'T have "tied behind his back, just to make it fair." Someday, maybe he'll bring out the other "half" and wipe out all the liberal weenies with a single utterance! :-D
MEGA Dittos, El Rushbo! You're the best!!!

Ah show business, some say he's got it and thats what makes him "good".

I feel certain that most Americans are smarter than the liberal elite expect. Notice that they have one tactic - attack the person.They want John Bolton's head not because of his policies or thoughts on National Security - well actually, exactly for that - but they do not attack the ideas. They attack the man, even trumping up charges from disgruntled moonbats.

Oh Lord please help me. What planet are they writing from? Listen to Rush or Sean or Micheal or any of them carefully watching for personal attacks then come back and we will discuss your statement further... You know....why he is opposed on substance.

"The liberal elite" he says. Oh my. Yes, those evil, vile, educated, informed, bastards.(Thanks rougy)

All this kind of talk is why I can barely watch Fox News anymore. It's so narrow and surface that it's like watching cartoons. I have no doubt there is a better message out there and I think that we have the common sense people to figure out how to get it there. Let's go to work.

The Liberal Media Doesn't Want You To Know This

Here's more proof that things were as you wacky people said they were. Ya, I know the top levels of the British Government is pretty shaky proof. I know, its the liberal media hiding it. Funny how this story is all over the foreign press and not to be found in this country. Don't they know we can look it up. Part of that freedom thing.
