This guy should apologize for his remarks? (see poll question at the first link, oh…and vote!)

But THIS guy….was just making a point.

“So I’ve told people that, if you’re interested in avoiding World War III,…

.

The truth is that Bush just likes to blow things up.

Ok then….and….moving on!

Oil at $90 a barrel.

Turkey and the Kurds, tired of all the old wars being shown on TV have have decided to start a new one….just in time for November Sweeps!

Maher Arar, a Canadian citizen renditioned and horribly tortured through the auspices of the United States, today received an apology from the House of Representatives. By video…..since if he returns to the United States he could be arrested….and renditioned….and tortured.

Rep Dana Rohrabacher also apologised, saying the US should be ashamed of what happened to Mr Arar.

But, he said, “that is no excuse to end a programme which has protected the lives of hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of Americans… We are at war. Mistakes happen. People die”.

Thank God that in 15 months we will have a new President who is interested only in Peace!!!

The US arms industry is backing Hillary Clinton for President and has all but abandoned its traditional allies in the Republican party.

Todays Abyss Report: Large, dark and throbbing………..but with a curious lack of Sea Monkeys!

Todays Baja Weather Report: I got cold! Last night, sleeping with all the windoes open and just a sheet over me, I got cold for the fist time in the six months I have been in Mexico….and for the first time in a year and a half since I moved to Hawaii and left the northern latitudes. Which brings to mind a quote…

Arthur: Do you know what I’m going to do? I’m going to take a bath.
Hobson: I’ll alert the media.

Oh….one last item….

Scouts dispatched to the Sol system to investigate reports of intelligent life on the systems third planet have reported that the reports were vastly over optimistic.

    is sticking to his guns.  He’s right!

    Remember its Iraq Moratorium #2 today.

  2. It’s been a long time, if ever, since I’ve heard brutal honesty on the floor of the House of Representatives.  It gives me hope — assuming he doesn’t get “renditioned” for telling the truth.  Brave, brave man.

    But it’s just another version of the “bad apples” argument–this is just an error. No! This is the policy!!!

    Also, let’s register a big “No!” on Mukasey. Valtin’s got a great diary Vote Down Michael ‘Is Waterboarding Torture?’ Mukasey, please read and rec, so it stays visible! And take action!

    yet have you? cause before you get too settled on that 15 months and bush is gone feeling you might want to read what bush thinks is a funny hahahahahahaha remark.

    just an fyi alert, boss

  3. It has happened before, a Dem, makes a truthful statement, the right wing shock troops get sent out like demented lemmings, and then the speaker makes a fearful retraction.

  4. His second statement clarified anything that could be construed as not PC by soldiers and vets.  I’m fine that some politician talked about soldiers getting their heads blown off for the president’s amusement since I know a few people that this seems to have happened to.  Sometimes the truth sucks huh?  Pete Stark is my man today.  Sing it Tammy

  5. and to tell him he shouldn’t apologize.

    510.494.1388  (DC was busy)
    202.225.5065

    It can’t hurt, and those Congresscritters love being told when think they’re doing something right.

  6. about fucking Hillary! it’s bait and switch. Not happy with Brand Psycho Killer, well buy Brand Hillary she’s our girl, and will fight our wars more efficiently. Jeez,when will we ever learn to not be jerked around the freaken’ TV and the stupid polls that only gage how effective the snow job is going. 

  7. Can’t you people see that she just wants what’s best for America?

    She wants to be President; she has to get cozy with big contributors in order to get elected.  That doesn’t mean that they’ll get any special favors.  I’m sure she will be a great President and will continue to support our troops by sending more to Iraq to help the people there.
