Today's News

The truth hurts and the apologists are cranking up again..from this weekends correspondents dinner:

DOOCY: He was playing a good sport as his body double was there. But shortly after that, the paid performer, Stephen Colbert of the Colbert Report, took the stage and did about 15 minutes and it was very uncomfortable. Personally I felt like he went over the line. Today in Lloyd Grove's column, he says that Colbert bombed badly. It was not very funny.

I guess humor is a matter of taste cuz I thought it was pretty good. Bush needs to be very uncomfortable everytime he shows his face. Then he could "feel our pain". As one of the commenters on the above post said. I remember Bush making a joke about not finding weapons of mass destruction. I didn't think that was very funny. These people are so uncomfortable with reality because it serves them poorly. Here's the video.

Marching in the wrong streets.
Hundreds of thousands of mostly Hispanic immigrants skipped work and took to the streets Monday, flexing their economic muscle in a nationwide boycott .
These people are willing to put their freedom on the line. Why don't they do it in their homeland. Do they really have the pride in Mexico and the Mexican people that they profess? They need you in Mexico to save your country! March there. It will benefit you and us far more than what you are doing.

The march they forgot to cover:
A day after the U.S. military announced that April was the deadliest month for American forces in Iraq this year, hundreds of thousands of anti-war protesters converged on Manhattan Saturday to call for an immediate withdrawal of troops from that country.
Do you find it unusual that there is little coverage of this....oh those goofy war protesters again. You know, the ones who were correct and the ones to be listening to if your decider was working correctly. By the way. Today is the anniversary of Mission Accomplished. Apparently a flight suit and codpiece does not a military genius make.

Here's another story about our biggest problem. At least if the Constitution is a vital part of America for you.
WASHINGTON -- President Bush has quietly claimed the authority to disobey more than 750 laws enacted since he took office, asserting that he has the power to set aside any statute passed by Congress when it conflicts with his interpretation of the Constitution.
What can I say that hasn't already been said. This is flat out, blatant powermongering. No one should have the power he claims. Especially someone who has proved to be a very poor decider. This cabal is destroying this country and the so called "patriots" who support him are laughable for even thinking what they are doing is remotely close to patriotic. It will be a sad day for America if he is not stopped. Thank You Russ Feingold for making the attempt.

Sean Hannity loves to say that Clinton turned down Bin Laden. Of course the story is far more complicated but that is all Seans' fans can or want to cram in their reactionary brains. Now we find that Bush could have had Al Zarqawi. Turned it down Sean...flat turned it down.
A former top CIA spy says the United States deliberately turned down several opportunities to kill terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi in the lead-up to the Iraq war....... He has told the ABC's Four Corners program the Bush administration had Zarqawi in its sights almost every day for a year. "The reasons the intelligence service got for not shooting Zarqawi was simply that the President and the National Security Council decided it was more important not to give the Europeans the impression we were gunslingers," he said.
Opps, bad decider. The actions taken made us out as gunslingers anyway. I'm sure wingnuttia will defile and defame this guy for messing up their illusions. That and/or find some apologist wackitatia to reinforce the "rightness" of George and wrongness of Bill.

Well more proof of a defective decider. Colin Powell urged more troops. As a matter of fact I think the Powell Doctrine supports overwhelming force.
Former Secretary of State Colin Powell urged President Bush before the Iraq war to send more troops to the country, but the administration did not follow his recommendation.
They decided not to take the advice of someone who had actually won a war. ... Bad decision to go in, bdecisionson on combat, bad decision on aftermath. Decider needs new batteries. More here.

Wingnuttia continues to insist that Ms. Wilson(Plame) was not undercover. Those with the ability to read the facts know better. Those with the ability to read also know that she was working Iran'sans weapons of mass destruction program.
On Chris Matthews' Hardball Monday evening...MSNBC correspondent David Shuster confirmed what RAW STORY first reported in February: that outed CIA officer Valerie Plame Wilson was working on Iran at the time she was outed.
RAW STORY's Larisa Alexandrovna broke the story earlier this year, which went unnoticed by the mainstream media.
Geez every thing this cabal touches turns to S*it. It's almost like they are jinxed. Or they are just horrible deciders. Their idea of Gods way seems to be frought with pitfalls.

There goes our money for rebuilding the Gulf Coast.
A US congressional inspection team set up to monitor reconstruction in Iraq today publishes a scathing report of failures by contractors, mainly from the US, to carry out projects worth hundreds of millions of dollars.
In one case, the inspection team found that three years after the invasion only six of 150 health centres proposed for Iraq had been completed by a US contractor, in spite of 75% of the $186m (£100m) allocated having been spent.

Why are we trying to rebuild a country that is in the midst of a civil war? Lets save America first.

Will he be "saved by zero"?

Rush settlement
Before his own problems became public, Limbaugh had decried drug use and abuse, often making the case that drug crimes deserve punishment.
The apologist argumentment is that he was under intense pain. Perhaps those "street" people he wants to see go to jail are in intense pain of another kind. Face it, he's a hypocriticalital drug addict, among other things.

A couple of notes. Seems no one, including wingnuttia is to thrilled with the Republican 100 dollar rebate idea as a solution to the gas crisis. They will keep pushing for more drilling. Hopefully the opposition will stand up for a fullthroated drive toward alternatives and conservation. Oil..it's so 20th century and the people that push it have a seriously pre 9/11 mindset.

Mad yet?

Yep.

That $100 rebate is just like dropping a quarter in a person's bucket, and saying, "Here's a little something for your time and trouble."

If that's all the rebate we get, when most americans are currently spending almost that much in gas a week, far as I'm concerned, they can keep it.

Re: Walk-out day, today. I'm very surprised if it honestly had any impact, regardless of what the stories say. Our economy is in deep sh* with or without the "immigrants" -- and, if we make that much money off of illegals, then we might as well consider that this country is running illegally anyway, and bend over and kiss our rears good-bye.

I'm much more interested in the march they forgot to cover. Maybe it didn't get the press hoped, but at least it happened (hey, look on the bright side, ok?), and maybe more will be encouraged for the next time.

Prez Bush? Ignore laws? hahahaha. If you go here, you'll see the most explicit form of deniability and lack of accountability of this administration that you'll ever find anywhere, but then, of course, I say that in jest. At least the idiot agrees with me on a thing or two, but not much else (he actually denied that GWB is doing this, when it's been concrete fact for how long?).

Eh, well, maybe I'll shut up, as I'm trying to get him to upgrade to at least competent at blogging. Helps to have two sides, especially when both sides are good.

Hope things are better for you, Ron. Take care.

Speaking of new-local news, that is. Saw the photos and article about the pro-immigrant rally yesterday in the RDR and, also, stories on the news. (NEVER anything in the RDR about our peace protests.) Was downtown yesterday, and radical that I am, couldn't resist yelling across the street, "Next time you want to demonstrate, protest Bush's stupid oil war!" (NO response) Then was coming back from the store (I did go shopping-no boycott for me.) and saw this teenaged girl waving a MX flag out the window of a truck and yelled it again. Response-"F___ you, Bitch!" Some people are muy oversensitive and perceive prejudice where there is none intended. Well, hey, I didn't say anything that was anti-immigrant, but there were a lot of people there demonstrating in favor of people being allowed to stay here after coming here illegally. Yet, Lonna and I can't get more than a few people to show up to protest Bush's immoral oil war. What the hell is this "Viva Bush!" crap all about? I did end up going over and finding someone who spoke some English to discuss this with. Y'know how Bush pretends to love Hispanics when he speaks Spanish and trots his half-MX nephew out, but how he only loves the richest of the rich, and how many of our troops are Hispanic and are being slaughtered in Iraq, and how the only reason he's promoting his guest worker program is that he wants to help Big Bidness out by helping them to legally hire illegals so he can drive down wages and bust unions. Since they won't get amnesty, he can then decide to ship them back to MX as soon as he gets what he wants-right? I think I have officially given up hope for any kind of real activism in Chaves Co. (sigh)

Dedanna. 1 millon 77 thousand is pretty damned close to fox and better than some of their primetime if the truth be known.

Go Keith Olberman!

but we condemn their comedians, like hannity and limbaugh and coulter et al so I guess all is fair.:-)

My idea of a great comedian is Robin Williams and Ron's is
Rush Limbaugh? Go figure. LOL
Ron, you have got to read "Lake Wobegone Days" (Garrision Keillor)! You would love it.
Also, did you know your heartthrob next to Cori was on Letterman last night (Dannica) and she has a new book out. He showed the book w/her photo on it. One would think that a lady racecar driver would look more like Rosie O'Donnell than a supermodel. Life is so unfair. LOL

Dannica is hot! Sadly..very sadly, too young for me though. I must say though that she seems to be quite mature in the stuff I have seen and read. She is also ambitious and determined to win. Qualities I greatly admire....I'm really proud of Lonna too. A good solider to have on our side.
The rush thing was satire.:-) My favorite comedian is Bill Hicks. Pretty blunt and often blue but he's funny and makes a point at the same time.He's gone now but I see him as a latter day Lenny Bruce. Or a mix of Sam Kinnison and Lenny Bruce. You might be able to find some of his stuff if you google him.

Well, after seeing Danica on her book jacket, I have to agree, but as an "old hippie chick", I can't help but bitch. LOL Jeez, Ron, do you like any actresses your own age? What about Meg Ryan, Dana Delaney, Teri Hatcher, etc.? Speaking of beautiful actresses (Navi Rawatt) don't forget to watch "NUMB3RS" tonite. :-) Plus, "ER" is doing a storyline where Drs. Carter and Pratt are in Darfur working in a refugee camp. 'Course we should be in Darfur preventing the genocide but our troops and those of Britain and Australia are busy in Bu$h's oil war in Iraq, so what's the U.N. to do?
And, yes, I knew you were being saracastic, Ron! (so was I) I'm not The Game after all, (who, apparently, can't recognize satire!)
Ciao!
