Truly Shameful

Wow. I was appalled. From Wapo:
Twenty-eight percent of the public is aware that nearly 4,000 U.S. personnel have died in Iraq over the past five years, while nearly half thinks the death tally is 3,000 or fewer and 23 percent think it is higher, according to an opinion survey released yesterday.
Access to information is […]

Freedom of Cluelessness, er, Speech

Thanks for this to my oldest friend Chris - wait a minute, that didn’t come out right, I have friends that are older, he and I are the same age, but we’ve been friends since ninth grade so he’s got seniority… anyway, Chris sent me this link to a Daily Show piece about the Berkeley […]

Meanwhile, Bush Leverages Young Iraqi Girl For Political Gain

As the bombs continue to kill our GIs in Bush’s Iraqi “Democracy Spreading” experiment, W continues to prove he there is no low to which he will sink to advance his political agenda. While he was busy preaching to the choir, he took an opportunity to leverage the situation involving a young Iraqi girl […]

Iraqmire: Five Glorious Years

Where did the time go? It’s been almost five years since we liberated the Iraqi people. And what a cakewalk it was. Our soldiers were greeted as liberators. They were showered with candy and ice cream by throngs of grateful Iraqis. Democracy and prosperity have been blossoming throughout the Middle East ever since then. And […]

If “We Cannot Impose Peace,” Why The Hell Did We Go Into Iraq?

Don’t you just love a president who likes to eat his cake and have it too? Have a look at this commentary from an unscripted President Bush as today he flummoxes his whole rationale for going into Iraq with one simple statement: “We can’t impose peace.”
Q Mr. President, as you mentioned, you know, as you […]

Killing Saddam “Was Thing Right Decision Then; It’s The Right Deicision Today…”

One can never fault the president for going off message as he spins his reality his way. Have a look at this interesting response to a very interesting question and see what you think. While you read the president (unscripted as the way I like to read him) ask yourself if he is […]

Your Rights Haven’t Been Violated, You’ve Been “Minimized”

I love the political rhetorical spin the W, Rove and Co has deployed to try and get out of a tight spot now and again. You might enjoy this exchange as some “Senior Administrati on Official (SAO)” who will be nameless tries to explain why the telecommunic ations industry may need immunity from lawsuits […]

One Unforeseen Crisis Away From A Military Draft?

The fact that the bulk of the American public’s military assessments are filtered through the prism of the powers that be…a la the Bush administrati on…can be rather misleading and may well engender a false sense of security. Implied in these assessments is an assurance that our nation is being sufficiently protected from harm. It’s […]

Chickenhawks: What Makes Them Tick

Whatever you want to call them — Chickenhawks  , Keyboard Warriors, the Chairborne Division — this species has been with us for a long time.
This article by Glenn Greenwald offers a glimpse into that pitiful mindset. There’s nothing new about today’s armchair warrior who bravely fights Evil and Terror from behind his computer console. In […]
