Bush needs to be prosecuted for TREASON

I consider destruction of the American society for personal gain to be TREASON.

It's bizarre -- that sanctimonious incompetent sonofabitch who has dropped the entire country in the shit now is screaming that a Democratic congress means defeat in Iraq and abandoning the war on terrorism.

Anyone who looks objectively at the situation has seen for years THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS VICTORY IN IRAQ to be gotten.

But in order to retain power, he is willing to divide the country into more antagonistic groups than ever before.

This is the man who sat like a throw pillow while Saudi psychos killed thousands in New York.

He was warned and re-warned.

He was HANDED the completed Hart-Rudman study of counter-measures against terrorism.

Information that, if used, could have prevented the mass murder of 9-11.

And he pissed on it, turned it over to Dick Cheney to "check it out."

They did NOTHING.


And then he invaded the wrong country and has killed thousands and hundreds of thousands of people there.


Try him and Cheney and Rove in the World Court for Crimes Against Humanity and hang them high, all together, like a Calder mobile.

He is truly a sociopath, and has no concern for the death destruction and disaster he causes, except to attack anyone who disagrees with him.


1) He's not essential to anything in terms of protecting America. OR

2) He doesn't care if there is a real terror threat at all.

The only terror he fears is his mother.

FUCK HIM AND ROVE AND CHENEY and the spineless chickenshit Republicans and Democrats he rode in on.



From David Brooks' Sunday NY TIMES Column on how wonderful Rick Santorum is ...

(It's on Times Select -- subscription only -- but you can read the entire column using the "Free Trial")

"Every poll suggests that Rick Santorum will lose his race to return to the U.S. Senate. That’s probably good news in Pennsylvania’s bobo suburbs, where folks regard Santorum as an ideological misfit and a social blight. But it’s certainly bad for poor people around the world...

"Like many people who admire his output, I disagree with Santorum on key matters like immigration, abortion, gay marriage. I’m often put off by his unnecessarily slashing style and his culture war rhetoric.

"But government is ultimately not about the theater or the light shows of public controversy, it’s about legislation and results. And the substance of Santorum’s work is impressive. Bono, who has worked closely with him over the years, got it right: “I would suggest that Rick Santorum has a kind of Tourette’s disease; he will always say the most unpopular thing. But on our issues, he has been a defender of the most vulnerable.”

Defender of the most vulnerable?
Puhleese --

Santorum is the number on Fag Basher in Congress -- those people aren't vulnerable? Gay men and women are subject to the most egregious treatment nearly everywhere, and unless they're actually lynched in a public place -- as in California's Shamehole, Concord -- the local police station is generally no more than another place to be treated with contempt and abuse by all those boys in leather playing with their nightsticks.

Santorum is a leading hater of girls and young women who find themselves pregnant after their male friends PROMISED them they were wearing protection or that they'd "pull out first," interfering in their most private decisions, deciding he has more right to decide their biological rights than they do (he receives this authority from his invisible friend).
Those girls and young women -- THEY'RE not vulnerable?

On immigrants, I can only ask: Santorum -- that's a Native American name? Build a wall. Right. We're all 9 years old and making snowball forts.


As they say "Democracy isn't perfect."

Bono -- who shall after this be imprinted in my mind as Bonehead -- I can only say -- hey Bonehead, I know Sir Bob (Geldof) and you goddamn well ain't no Sir Bob.

You want to see VULNERABLE? Just read a list of who Santorum regularly attacks.

And to be honest, I never thought your band was any good, either.

You're just Australia's cross between Tom Jones* and Bill Bennett. In other words -- a thug using his brief candle to piss on everyone you dislike and seek approval from everyone else.

It's called "Kiss up/Kick down."

As for David Brooks, the jury is still out on whether he is a putative asshole or a certified one.


*Except Tom Jones has some sense of humor about himself.



From Dublin's finest -- BLATHER

'Jesus faked his Crucifixion' says Rush Limbaugh

limbaugh.jpg 'Those aren't real nails' says fat, odious foul-mouthed, fear-mongering, low-life, drug-addicted scumbag.

Right-wing American shock-jock Rush Limbaugh took time out from his busy schedule of sacrificing chickens and small children to the Dark Lord of Hades, whoring for the Republican party and desperately trying to hide the fact that he is, in fact, everything he professes to hate this morning, to cast doubt on the authenticity of Jesus' crucifixion.

'I don't buy it for a second', spluttered Limbaugh, whilst masturbating furiously over a computer generated picture of George W. Bush in fish-nets and high-heels. 'He's wriggling around on that cross like a spastic worm, arms flapping all over the place. He's faking it. Faking it! He's a professional liar! Those wounds on his hands? Ketchup! Nails through the feet? Bought them in a joke shop! Crown of thorns? Crown of cotton wool more like. Spear through the side? Barely tickled him, the con-artist. And I ain't the only one that says so either.


Ahh, but going into the Blather Archives:


Hollywood — Rush Limbaugh has accused Christopher Reeve of exaggerating his paralysis and death in recent TV ads for Democratic candidates who support stem cell research. “These Hollywood liberals will go to any length — even rolling around in a wheel chair they don’t need and faking their death — to get Democrats elected,” Limbaugh said on his radio show Wednesday.

The accusation comes soon after Limbaugh accused Michael J. Fox of exaggerating his Parkinson’s disease in political ads as a ploy to get votes for Ben Cardin, a Democrat running for the U.S. Senate in Maryland.

“Keep in mind that Christopher Reeve attended the famous Juilliard School of Performing Arts,” Limbaugh noted. “He’s an actor, folks, and his behavior is really shameless.”

According to medical records, personal testimonials, family, and friends, Reeve was paralyzed from the neck down when he was thrown from a horse back in 1995. The former “Superman” star reportedly died last October at the age of 52. According to sources close to Democratic Senate candidates such as Claire McCaskill (Missouri), Bob Casey (Pennsylvania), and Jim Pederson (Arizona), Reeve’s estate — run by his brother after his wife reportedly died last year — gave permission to the campaigns to use footage of him.

Embryonic stem cells are the precursor cells to almost every tissue in the body. Advocates of their use in research say they hold more potential to cure spinal cord injuries, diabetes and other diseases than adult stem cells. Opponents say the research with embryonic cells, which destroys the embryos, amounts to murder.

“How would you like it if Christopher Reeve showed up at your home and walked in – yes, I said walked in using his two functioning legs — to take your baby away and kill him for the stem cells?” warned Limbaugh.

“It’s not only Christopher ‘Exaggerator’ Reeve and Michael J. ‘Faker’ who are trying to fool the American voting public,” he added. “Christopher Reeve’s wife is also guilty of being a big faker. She wants us to believe that she died of lung cancer, but loyal ditto-heads already know that lung cancer is another conspiracy dreamed up by liberals out to destroy tobacco companies.”

Limbaugh has not apologized for his remarks about Christopher and Dana Reeve and maintains that he has been completely honest.

“If I wasn’t telling the truth about the Reeves, they would have responded to my comments,” he told Dateline Hollywood. “I haven’t heard one word from Christopher or Dana Reeve. Case closed.”


And for this one, you need to go THERE for a video of Bill Hicks' riff on Rush Limbaugh's sexuality. And it's really worth going there for it.

In fact, going to Blather anytime is worth it.



From this site:

"There are psychopathic personalities in the highest echelons of government, and even within religious hierarchies in America. You can t just assume that a person with the title judge or hospital orderly got there honestly and won't manipulate the hell out of you."

Profile of the Sociopath

----- I use this term a lot -- it is also called Antisocial Personality Disorder and its carriers are also called psychopaths.

(Or, the short version, as sung by Mick Jagger in Memo From Turner in the Donald Cammell/Nicholas Roeg Movie Performance):

"You're a lashing smashing hunk of man
Your sweat shines sweet and strong
Your organs are working perfectly,
But there's a part that's not screwed on."


Here's a very good list of the characteristics of such a person.

If it reminds you of anyone, I'm truly sorry.

It reminds me of some people and that's quite scary.

Profile of the Sociopath

This website summarizes some of the common features of descriptions of the behavior of sociopaths.

  • Glibness and Superficial Charm

  • Manipulative and Conning
    They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors as permissible. They appear to be charming, yet are covertly hostile and domineering, seeing their victim as merely an instrument to be used. They may dominate and humiliate their victims.

  • Grandiose Sense of Self
    Feels entitled to certain things as "their right."

  • Pathological Lying
    Has no problem lying coolly and easily and it is almost impossible for them to be truthful on a consistent basis. Can create, and get caught up in, a complex belief about their own powers and abilities. Extremely convincing and even able to pass lie detector tests.

  • Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt
    A deep seated rage, which is split off and repressed, is at their core. Does not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, they have victims and accomplices who end up as victims. The end always justifies the means and they let nothing stand in their way.

  • Shallow Emotions
    When they show what seems to be warmth, joy, love and compassion it is more feigned than experienced and serves an ulterior motive. Outraged by insignificant matters, yet remaining unmoved and cold by what would upset a normal person. Since they are not genuine, neither are their promises.

  • Incapacity for Love

  • Need for Stimulation
    Living on the edge. Verbal outbursts and physical punishments are normal. Promiscuity and gambling are common.

  • Callousness/Lack of Empathy
    Unable to empathize with the pain of their victims, having only contempt for others' feelings of distress and readily taking advantage of them.

  • Poor Behavioral Controls/Impulsive Nature
    Rage and abuse, alternating with small expressions of love and approval produce an addictive cycle for abuser and abused, as well as creating hopelessness in the victim. Believe they are all-powerful, all-knowing, entitled to every wish, no sense of personal boundaries, no concern for their impact on others.

  • Early Behavior Problems/Juvenile Delinquency
    Usually has a history of behavioral and academic difficulties, yet "gets by" by conning others. Problems in making and keeping friends; aberrant behaviors such as cruelty to people or animals, stealing, etc.

  • Irresponsibility/Unreliability
    Not concerned about wrecking others' lives and dreams. Oblivious or indifferent to the devastation they cause. Does not accept blame themselves, but blames others, even for acts they obviously committed.

  • Promiscuous Sexual Behavior/Infidelity
    Promiscuity, child sexual abuse, rape and sexual acting out of all sorts.

  • Lack of Realistic Life Plan/Parasitic Lifestyle
    Tends to move around a lot or makes all encompassing promises for the future, poor work ethic but exploits others effectively.

  • Criminal or Entrepreneurial Versatility
    Changes their image as needed to avoid prosecution. Changes life story readily.

Other Related Qualities:

  1. Contemptuous of those who seek to understand them
  2. Does not perceive that anything is wrong with them
  3. Authoritarian
  4. Secretive
  5. Paranoid
  6. Only rarely in difficulty with the law, but seeks out situations where their tyrannical behavior will be tolerated, condoned, or admired
  7. Conventional appearance
  8. Goal of enslavement of their victim(s)
  9. Exercises despotic control over every aspect of the victim's life
  10. Has an emotional need to justify their crimes and therefore needs their victim's affirmation (respect, gratitude and love)
  11. Ultimate goal is the creation of a willing victim
  12. Incapable of real human attachment to another
  13. Unable to feel remorse or guilt
  14. Extreme narcissism and grandiose
  15. May state readily that their goal is to rule the world

(The above traits are based on the psychopathy checklists of H. Cleckley and R. Hare.)


This article, including more analysis and some self-protecting advice for dealing with such folk continues here but here's some of what is in the rest ---



These people are mentally ill and extremely dangerous! The following precautions will help to protect you from the destructive acts of which they are capable.

First, to recognize them, keep the following guidelines in mind.

(1) They are habitual liars. They seem incapable of either knowing or telling the truth about anything.

(2) They are egotistical to the point of narcissism. They really believe they are set apart from the rest of humanity by some special grace.

(3) They scapegoat; they are incapable of either having the insight or willingness to accept responsibility for anything they do. Whatever the problem, it is always someone else's fault.

(4) They are remorselessly vindictive when thwarted or exposed.

(5) Genuine religious, moral, or other values play no part in their lives. They have no empathy for others and are capable of violence. Under older psychological terminology, they fall into the category of psychopath or sociopath, but unlike the typical psychopath, their behavior is masked by a superficial social facade.

If you have come into conflict with such a person or persons, do the following immediately!

(1) Notify your friends and relatives of what has happened.

Do not be vague. Name names, and specify dates and circumstances. Identify witnesses if possible and provide supporting documentation if any is available.

(2) Inform the police. The police will do nothing with this information except to keep it on file, since they are powerless to act until a crime has been committed. Unfortunately, that often is usually too late for the victim. Nevertheless, place the information in their hands.

Obviously, if you are assaulted or threatened before witnesses, you can get a restraining order, but those are palliative at best.

(3) Local law enforcement agencies are usually under pressure if wealthy or politically powerful individuals are involved, so include state and federal agencies as well and tell the locals that you have...

(4) Make sure that several of your friends have the information in the event something happens to you. That way, an appropriate investigation will follow if you are harmed. Don't tell other people who has the information, because then something bad could happen to them as well. Instruct friends to take such an incident to the newspapers and other media.

If you are dealing with someone who has considerable money, you must realize that they probably won't try to harm you themselves, they will contract with someone to make the hit. The malignant type is a coward and will not expose himself or herself to personal danger if he or she can avoid it.


Golly gee, Mr. Wizard ... remind you of anyone?



Watching David Kuo (author of Tempting Faith) on Washington Journal this morning.

I have no doubts about Mr. Kuo's sincerity, but I have some serious doubts about his level of perception, specifically when he tells us that, in person, George W. Bush is a truly compassionate person.

Something doesn't compute when what comes to mind is the execution of Karla Faye Tucker when Bush was Governor of Texas.

Karla Faye Tucker was a woman who'd committed a monstrously violent murder some years before, using a pickaxe on two people, but had been 'born again' in prison, apparently sincerely, , and was truly remorseful, according to Sister Helen Prejean. When the appeal, on compassionate grounds, reached the governor's desk, we heard the reports of him mocking her, making fun of her, prancing about his office and going "Oh please don't kill me" in a high woman's voice.

My conclusion?

The man is and was a contemptible sociopath, willing to kill thousands for an ego whim, and willing to make fun of someone fighting for her life.

(And also someone never willing to admit that, as Governor of Texas, he did not have the authority to commute a death sentence. But to admit something like that would be admitting that he, as Governor, as in the rest of his life, he was a false-front pissant riding on other people's shoulders. We count the days until January 20, 2009, when, with a bit of luck, we'll never need to see him again, and he can go to wherever it is he lives, if not the stage-set ranch, and drink himself into oblivion.)


They're so f *&$%ing tough -- until they get caught

...then they whimper like bunnies.

All those top dogs, pushing out their chests, talking about kicking ass in Iraq, or kicking ass in elections...

and then they get caught and suddenly it's "Oh I was a public servant..."

My thoughts?

If you were privileged enough to work for us -- sucking government milk from our bottomless nipple of taxpayer cash, and you betrayed us -- you get a sentence twice as long as is handed out for the common 7-11 stickup.

Unfortunately, this isn't Turkey where you'd get hanged from a lamppost, or Saudi Arabia where we'd get to cut your hands off.

You just go to a gentleman's jail where you can read books, play golf and find Jesus.

So -- for all of you to follow -- shut the fuck up and stop whining. You did the crime, now at least show a little class.

Another incident where the vile corrupt regime of Richard Nixon showed more class and had more honor than this band of brothers.

Abramoff Associate Argues for No Jail

- - - - - - - - - - - -

By MATT APUZZO Associated Press Writer

October 24,2006 | WASHINGTON -- A congressman and a former House aide have written letters in support of former Bush administration official David Safavian, who is trying to avoid jail time in the Jack Abramoff investigation.

Safavian, former chief of staff of the General Services Administration, was convicted in June of lying to investigators about his dealings with Abramoff.

Prosecutors are seeking a three-year prison sentence in Safavian's case, which was the first guilty verdict by a jury in the corruption probe surrounding Abramoff, the Republican lobbyist who pleaded guilty in January in a conspiracy to corrupt public officials.



More on my insensitive comments (below) about how much I despise the TV commercials being made by/for Chuck Poochigian.

First of all, while the exceedingly courageous ANONYMOUS felt a need to scream and call me names, he was right on the point he wanted to make -- that it was stupid and insensitive for me to make a flippant comment about the Turkish genocide of the Armenians (at Musa Dagh and elsewhere). In fact, he didn't go far enough in his criticism of my statment.

More to the point, the fact that Mr. Poochigian is of Armenian descent is totally irrelevant to my distaste for his tactics, as it might have suggested that I consider his form of stupid viciousness has ANYTHING to do with his ethnic extraction, or that I think this is something Armenians do.

Not ever in mind mind nor ever my intent.

I have known many Americans of Armenian descent.
Some have been delightful friends.
(Yo, Dieron -- it's been too long. Time for another round of Woo Dip Hah and Egg Rolls.)

Some have been just as nasty and venal and slimy as we may find among any other types of American.

In short, to clear any confusion --

People are people and Chuck Poochigian seems to me to be a sleazy scumbag all on his own without regard to race, religion, ethnic grouping, national derivation, of his Alma Mater.

The cold, cruel, monstrous genocide of the Armenians was largely ignored by most societies and governments in the west, with the exception of the emerging Third Reich under Adolf Hitler who pointed to that in context of his desire to commit genocide on the Jews (and Gypsies, Catholics, Gays, Poles, Trade Unionists, etc), and opined that no one had cared when the Turks killed off most of an entire people, so why would anyone care about the Jews (or the rest).



On voting this year

First of all, if I relied on TV, which I had been, I wouldn't know ANYTHING about ANY candidates or Propositions --

The ads all say one thing, regardless of their cause:

"My opponent (or that Proposition) is a vile, devious, nasty piece of work, and a vote for that (him, it, her) will cause all the children in our state to be molested repeatedly without recourse, the Commies to return, and the Earth itself to fly off its axis and fall into the sun."

Because of this -- I don't know if Jerry Brown would be a good Attorney General, I'm not his biggest fan (I live in Oakland) -- but Cashoogian's ads are so vile, and venomous, and slimy, I'm voting for whatever he's against. The ads were so rabid, my first response was "Damn, the Turks missed the ones they SHOULD HAVE gotten at Musa Dagh."

And I'm one of the few non-Armenians who has known what Musa Dagh was since I was in high school.

Similarly for Insurance Commissioner, Props 86, 87, 90, etc...

And voting against Arnie, of course.

Interesting .. Arnie and George Bush have one thing in common -- both are classic playground bullies -- and both are afraid to meet their challengers honestly and openly -- the stuff Nazi's were made of.

It's actually Arnie's Austrian accent that PREVENTS PEOPLE from calling him a Nazi, since people feel it's unfair mass generalizing because of his birth.

(You know, he grew up in Austria, -- in the 50's -- and he remembers seeing the Russian tanks in the streets -- quite a talent, since they'd been gone for 10 years.)

Not that Phil Angelides has a chance in hell of winning.

And oh, one other thing.

My wife and I are in agreement -- we will vote AGAINST anyone who calls us at home soliciting a vote for a person or a proposition. If they think so little of our right to use our free time as we choose, to hell with them.



OK, I was being a smartass and insensitive

when I joked that Mr. Lidle had thought that last -- and losing -- game of the ALDS to Detroit was "a bad day."

In my defense -- until this morning -- and ONLY in the local NY Newspaper (NYTIMES)
has ANYONE said word one about the people in the apartment building who got burned out.

If this (mentioning the non-celebrity victims) is "too liberal," so be it.

Manhattan Plane Crash Kills Yankee Pitcher

A single-engine plane carrying the Yankees pitcher Cory Lidle smashed into a 42-story building on the Upper East Side yesterday, killing Mr. Lidle and his flight instructor, the authorities said.

The afternoon crash beneath overcast skies sent debris clattering hundreds of feet to the sidewalk and started a fire that destroyed several apartments and left a charred smudge on the face of the building.

Fourteen firefighters and four people in the building were injured, officials said, including a woman who had been in an apartment hit squarely by the plane and escaped the inferno, suffering burns.

The plane, owned by Mr. Lidle, was a Cirrus SR20, a four-seat propeller plane that is popular for its performance and sleek looks. It has a fixed landing gear reminiscent of a stunt plane. With two sets of controls, officials said, either Mr. Lidle or his instructor could have been flying it.

Lawyer: Gov't Workers Got Fake Diplomas

- - - - - - - - - - - -

October 12,2006 | SPOKANE, Wash. -- At least 135 federal employees, including a White House staff member and National Security Agency employees, bought bogus online college degrees from a diploma mill, a lawyer in the case against the mill operators said.

Some of those who paid thousands of dollars for phony diplomas include a senior State Department employee in Kuwait and a Department of Justice employee in Spokane, defense lawyer Peter S. Schweda said Wednesday.

The bogus degree purchases by the federal workers were revealed Wednesday during a U.S. District Court status conference for five defendants in the case against the mill, The Spokesman-Review reported Thursday.



Monkey Boy -- he's a 'signifying' monkey...

Meaning sitting in his tree and full of crap --

Dear George -- regarding North Korea --

You've had 6 years to do something, and all you can do is blame Bill Clinton for his actual attempts to resolve the situation 12 years ago?

You can characterize the 'evil' ones all you want, but here's the truth of it, re N Korea and all the rest:

You and your guys are AFRAID to meet one-on-one with those boogie men, would rather hide your heads under the covers and shout "It's all Bill Clinton's fault."

Fuck you and the terrified horses you rode in on.

You're a disgrace to this country and the world.

Oakland kitty dreams of the A's sweeping the Twins



Bush wants to convene a panel to investigate causes of violence in schools. Is he disingenuous? Or just stupid?

(Remember kids -- I never pretended to be objective.)

Or maybe neither. The late Howard Gossage used to say -- when explaining what Marshall McLuhan meant by extra-environmental and why seemingly bright people never seem to see it coming:

"I don't know who discovered water, but it sure as hell wasn't a fish."


The Resident of the United States, a man who will be remembered in the history books for one thing -- totally destroying the Republican Party -- wants to know how come schoolkids are getting more and more violent. Well, to start, he might look in a mirror at the man who says things like "He can run but he can't hide" or "Dead or alive."

Or walk down the hall and peek in on Karl Rove who so happily engineered a campaign of fear and terror, that anyone who disagrees with their point of view is a traitor, a supporter of terrorism, and an advocate for terrorists winning (whatever it is they would win).

And once you make up a deck of cards as if this so-called War on Terror was made up by Lewis Carroll, and put the names and faces of supposed Al Qaeda biggies on them, and cross them off one after another as they're killed, and oh, those video-game-playing kids who are 8-10-12 years old start to get the idea -- put me down and I'll kill you.

Although a deck of cards is kind of apropriate since this administration is even more Through the Looking Glass than most.


They just get curiouser and curiouser.
Except we've got a black queen instead of a white or red one.


As piss-poor a campaign as John Kerry ran in 2004, when he tried to show "tough" he kept saying "I want to find Osama ben Ladn and kill him." Even as a couple of people who despise everything the Bush family has stood for since both grandpas financed Hitler, my wife and I were appalled and offended by that statement.

So the video-game kids all get the idea -- if he or she gives you any crap, kill the principal (and get on TV, too).

And the success of Karl Rove teaches all the other politicans of every wing of every party -- kill all your principles and you can get elected.

Point to the other guys and tell the public if THEY get elected, the world will end.

NEWS FLASH -- the OTHER GUYS are the same guys as you, whether you're Republican, Democrat, Green, Libertarian, American Independent, Socialist Workers -- whatever.

The old country cliche is applicable here -- "When you point a finger at someone, there are three fingers pointing back at you." All you guys will do "whatever it takes" to get elected -- and the bizarre thing? You think "doing whatever it takes" is a virtue instead of a crime against morality.

Will Rogers said it: "There's a big difference between Republicans and Democrats. The Republicans skin you from the neck down. The Democrats skin you from the ankles up."

Back to the violence.

Fred Friendly, long time TV network pioneer, made an observation more than 30 years ago, and I quote from memory so the words may not be exact:

"The biggest industry in America is not oil or steel or automobiles. It's induced anxiety. The only logical conclusion of that is a national nervous breakdown."

Bad breath? Car too sissy-ish? Body odor? Too fat?

It's not ONE PERSON or ONE PARTY or ONE CAUSE -- TV, movies, video games, books, cars, whatever... it's everyone going along with it and trying to top each other with more and more violent heroes and TV shows and movies.

Check out Showtime's Desperate attempt to top HBO with DEXTER -- CSI blood spatter techies by day, Serial Killer (but only of "bad" guys) by night.

Ultimately, Walt Kelly's Pogo said it loud and clear:

"We have met the enemy and he is us."




Yet another take on abortion, in, about preventing the need for it.


There sure are a lot of people (putting on serious faces) REALLY interested in what goes on in young women's coochies.

Young women they don't even know.

The first coin minted in this country -- before it was the United States -- was the Fugio Cent -- on it were imprinted words of wisdom:


So all you anti-choice AND pro-choice opiners -- seems to me you got your nose in someone else's business and it seems to me to be none of yours.


Rumsfeld says he won't resign

If we've learned ANYTHING about this flock of vermin, it's that their own welfare -- their power, their status, their insanity -- is vastly more important to them than the welfare of the United States of America.
