Who's Running The Show?

Remember all those things you worried about should Bush get reelected? Well....Try this.

House Republicans, for instance, discarded the seniority system and limited the independence and prerogatives of committee chairmen. The result is a chamber effectively run by a handful of GOP leaders. At the White House, Bush has tightened the reins on Cabinet members, centralizing the most important decisions among a tight group of West Wing loyalists. With the strong encouragement of Vice President Cheney, he has also moved to expand the amount of executive branch information that can be legally shielded from Congress, the courts and the public.

If the citizens representative and senators don't have the liberty to vote their conscience without repercussion then we no longer have a republic. We no longer have "by the people" government. So what do we have? Looks somewhat like a dictatorship to me.

Coffee Table

Lets crank the Coffee Table table again....what's on your mind? Discuss.

What Really Happened?

"Newsweek " Riots.

Virtually every major news agency in the world has reported without verification that between 15 and 18 Afghanis were killed in the riots. ......Not a single name of even one victim has been released. No details of the circumstances of the riots were released from any official sources – either U.S. or Afghan.

War As A Business

In the name of freedom or conflict? Personally I can't say I'm very proud of this.

A new report by the New York-based World Policy Institute finds that a majority of U.S. arms sales to the developing world go to regimes defined as undemocratic by our own State Department. Furthermore, U.S.-supplied arms are involved in a majority of the world’s active conflicts.

Are you suprized?

Theocracy Fighters

They are about to get the 3 branches of government. They have the media. They are working on those librul college campuses. Even the military is not exempt from their attempt to dominate.

Another One Learns The Truth

Let's just use him for our own purposes. The ends justifies the means. We now have another military family that has learned the truth and is willing to speak the truth and the dreaded "L" word....Liars.
Friendly fire happens...sadly. To tell an outright lie, even to the family, is just one more example of how devoid of character this bunch is.

The Good News and The Bad News

Here's the latest on Iraq(which I have yet to hear reported in the librul media). Not sure what to think about this. What do you think?

People LOVE Cartoons

Just watching the Fox cartoon(news) network. The conversation was on the damn justice stopping democrats. They, apparently, should go back to how its been done for 220 years. The guest gave an explanation that I didn't get at all. I think because it was non-senseical. Then, whoever the hostlady was made me laugh out loud with her ignorance. Honestly. It was hilarious! She said something to the effect of -The people voted and Frist is the leader of the MAJORITY. Shouldn't we the people pretty much go along with the majority.? BWA HAHAHAHAHA !
It appears it's Paige Hopkins. Page can read and knows how to do her hair but apparently was writing notes during civics class.
First, most obviously, one party rule with no opposition would be dictatorship.
: a form of government in which absolute power is concentrated in a dictator or a small clique b : a government organization or group in which absolute power is so concentrated.
We do in a dictatorship. Built in the Constitution is separation of powers and rights for the minority. Those minority rights are there to form a barrier to a radical agenda by either side without the deliberate and cautionary moving of the wheels of law and justice. We all know deep down inside that many, many peoples view on this would be exactly reversed if the shoe was on the other foot.
Calling this the "Constitutional Option" is a misnomer. It's certainly not along the lines of the Constitutional separation of powers. I have heard the pundits say this is not a big deal to most Americans. To bad because this is a huge deal to the theocrats. They want judges on the court that will interpret mans laws in terms of Gods law. This is unfortunate because I am afraid that their understanding of God varies from mine ...and many other peoples for that matter.
Wait......maybe that's why we have separation of church and state!
It's all so sick. The conversation in the mainstream media doesn't the extent that on Fox it's purely cartoon news....... a ludicrously simplistic, unrealistic, or one-dimensional portrayal or version.
