Do tell! Email! Congratulations!

I knew I should have waited another couple of hours to post about doing what the terrorists want. Thought about posting to your last thread, asking for another Coffee Table then.

Going to Alamogordo to work for a 4 station cluster. Mainly as the morning guy on the country station. Going to look for a place to live today.
Do the post again on here dedanna. I know I got behind keeping up with the blog. I have been working hard on working lately.

I understand.

Congratulations again, Ron. My son loves Alamogordo, I love Ruidoso. Maybe we'll go there and haunt you sometime.

Take care.

Well, it's a double post then, but worth it I guess:

An anonymous reader writes,

"In his latest newsletter, security author Bruce Schneier delivered a scathing critique of politicians and the media for promoting fear and ultimately doing exactly what the terrorists want. Citing several cases of false alarms, Schneier writes: 'Our politicians help the terrorists every time they use fear as a campaign tactic. The press helps every time it writes scare stories about the plot and the threat... Our job is to think critically and rationally, and to ignore the cacophony of other interests trying to use terrorism to advance political careers or increase a television show's viewership.' Are the terrorists laughing at us?"

Sometimes Ron it's really wild -- keep your blog up while you're cruising right-wing blogs. I do it sometimes and compare the differences. There's literally a world of difference that plays a head trip on the mind. To have reason next to hysteria... can't be explained the feeling it gives.

Ron, Alamogordo is one of the places we looked at, and had been to, before we moved to New Mexico. There are some nice homes, rental properties and apartments on the east side (the high side) of town, not all that expensive. A lot of the homes that received so much damage from the June flashflood were on the north side. Many of them were newer.

I believe Alamogordo is usually a little warmer, drier and dustier than Roswell. Of course, you have the Sacremento Mtns. almost in your backyard. A wonderful drive to Cloudcroft and the observatories just south of there. (actually you can see them from Alamogrodo about a mile up!)

The one big downer about Alamogordo,dispite the flashflood is the water situation. Lots of restrictions.

Stephannie DuBois who ran for state rep and is now running for PRC for this district is a good progressive. She has a program once or twice a week in the mornings on a station there in Alamogordo for an hour or two. I don't remember which station though.

Again, all the best, and you'll be just about a one hour drive from Las Cruces, El Paso and Mexico!

Here is something I have read and heard about at different sites. Not only are Rove and the neo-cons and the powers that be letting the ones up for re-election distance themselves from Bush, they are letting Bush get more extreme to help them along. The reconciliation after the election for the re-elected may not be with Bush but with the "new and improved" neo-con Repubs. See they distance themselves from Bush. Then sometime after the first of the year more pressure comes to bear on Bush and eventually he has to do a Nixon-type resignation. Then Cheney becomes pres for real! Or Cheney is gone to and the new Appointed Pres can get a year or so in office as the real thing, again a new and improved neo-con, thus virtually guaranteeing their re-election in '08. All it will take is for the new pres not to do a Ford thing. Instead wait until after the '08 election to pardon W and Cheney of anything that was involved with their resignation.

They get rid of Bush (maybe Chaney too), get their image remade and get another 4 (8?) years in the Oval Office. An unending presidency
What do you think?

Yeah, and we still get bashed for it, right Ron?

Larry, I think I have found a place and the mountains are right out my front window. 2 blocks over. ..According to the constitution if Bush and Cheney would resign Denny Hastert, the Speaker would become pres. The only other way they could do it is if Cheney resigned first and a new VP was appointed, then Bush resigned. I think any of it is not likely.

Game, I looked, as you may have noted, and I am very glad we are all lovers of an honest vote. It is a vital part of what we all love about America and we need to get together to push it.

According to Forbes, in the list of the top 400 richest, there was no one with net worth below $1bil.

That's not too much of a surprise. Consider that the masses against the classes in the U.S. is growing vastly larger. Proof is in this article this morning, where it's stated that the nations's collective net worth of the richest rose by $120bil to,,,, check this out: $1.25 trillion!

If the nation's rich would share some of that wealth, then maybe when GWB leaves office (assuming he does), it would make at least somewhat of a dent in the national debt.

What could any one person or family for that matter do with that much money anyway? By the time one pays for a couple of yachts that they don't need, food, those four $4m homes that they don't need and could never use, enough clothes to cover the country's people, etc. etc., there's still money left over. What to do with it? One's own country in general. Give back some of the advantages that one was given. I can think of no better purpose for it.

dedanna, such "socialism" to think that greed should not be more important that seeing other Americans have a shot at living the American dream! (snark)

They don't even need to give it back or to the government. They could use the money to provide better health care or higher salaries for those willing to work. But this would actually make life better for all or at least many and that is "socialism".(recurring snark)

when dedanna makes comments like this:
when GWB leaves office (assuming he does)
how can any sane person hold a conversation

Game, in most cases I would agree but under the circumstances and looking at the evidence I think we certainly do have a far out of the ordinary situation here. One we might want to take seriously and not assume it is business as usual when it obviously isn't.

It's said by conspiracy theorists Game (whether one chooses to believe them or not, and I'm not saying I do or don't believe them), that GWB will declare some sort of state of emergency come the 2008 election so that the election can be postponed, and eventually not happen at all.

To be honest, I don't put anything past GWB any more (and this isn't liberalism talking, it's from having watched and listened to the man), and do think there's at least a very slight chance of it happening that way.

Dedanna, I heard the same thing floated in o4 but as you said, how can you trust these peeps. They have gone so far past what is constitutional already who knows?
