President Cheney and Vice President Rumsfield Get Their Way

"
It's the end of the world as we know...
And I feel fine...

Everybody sing along now!

Democracy Perfected : The American Way

"As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron."
- H.L. Mencken

Jeb Bush Says Truth Is Useless

According to George Bush's little brother and Florida governor Jeb Bush, some people just can't handle the truth. Jeb once told retired Naval Intelligence Officer Al Martin (cited in Bushwhacked, Sept. 2002, by Uri Dowbenko)...
"The truth is useless. You have to understand this right now. You can't deposit the truth in a bank. You can't buy groceries with the truth. You can't pay rent with the truth. The truth is a useless commodity that will hang around your neck like an albatross -- all the way to the homeless shelter. And if you think that the million or so people in this country that are really interested in the truth about their government can support people who would tell them the truth, you got another think coming. Because the million or so people in this country that are truly interested in the truth don't have any money."

The War Prayer : by Mark Twain

O Lord our God, help us tear their soldiers to bloody shreds with our shells; help us to cover their smiling fields with the pale forms of their patriot dead; help us to drown the thunder of the guns with the shrieks of their wounded, writhing in pain; help us to lay waste their humble homes with a hurricane of fire; help us to wring the hearts of their unoffending widows with unavailing grief; help us to turn them out roofless with their little children to wander unfriended in the wastes of their desolated land in rags and hunger and thirst, sports of the sun flames in summer and the icy winds of winter, broken in spirit, worn with travail, imploring thee for the refuge of the grave and denied it--

For our sakes who adore Thee, Lord, blast their hopes, blight their lives, protract their bitter pilgrimmage, make heavy their steps, water their way with their tears, strain the white snow with the blood of their wounded feet!

We ask it, in the spirit of love, of Him Who is the Source of Love, and Who is the ever-faithful refuge and friend of all that are sore beset and seek His aid with humble and contrite hearts. Amen.

Linda Ronstadt Speaks Up

And promptly gets booed and heckled... people stormed out and tore down posters and threw cocktails. It was 'bedlam' apparently.

She was escorted off the property and not even allowed into the dressing room. Like a common criminal beacuse she had the temerity to have an opinion.

This is a disgrace. America officially went to the dogs some time after the 2000 election. No one believes anymore than America is a land of liberty or democracy. Their constitution is under constant attack from the laws emanating from Washington. And we all know that elected officials have their pockets lined by lobby groups. Elected officials dont' even read legislation that they pass!!!

Wake up America!! Become political!!! It's time you took back your country from the power hungry billionaires who run your lives as wage slaves. Politics should not be the sole domain of those rich enough and egotistical enough to pursue it. It should be the birthright of every american to get involved and get concerned. Turn off MTV, turn off the sport and read a book!!

Cause if you don't do it now you'll never get it back.

Texecutions

George Bush is a mass murderer. While Governer of Texas until 2000 he killed more than 200 offenders on death row. http://www.texecutions.com/texecuted.html


And he has the gall to mock someone who pleaded for clemency before being refused and put to death "'Please,' Bush whimpers, his lips pursed in mock desperation, 'don't kill me,' "

This site is full of broken links and will probably disappear so here's a list of quotes from good ole Dubya



7/1... "Unfairly but truthfully, our party has been tagged as being against things. Anti-immigrant, for example. And we're not a party of anti-immigrants. Quite the opposite. We're a party that welcomes people." -- Cleveland, Ohio

"The fundamental question is, 'Will I be a successful president when it comes to foreign policy?' I will be, but until I'm the president, it's going to be hard for me to verify that I think I'll be more effective." -- Wayne, Michigan, reported by Katharine Q. Seelye, New York Times, June 28, 2000.

6/10... "If you’re asking me whether or not as to the innocence or guilt or if people have had adequate access to the courts in Texas, I believe they have." -- Response to an AP Reporter

5/18..."[Rudy Giuliani] has certainly earned a reputation as a fantastic mayor because the results speak for themselves. I mean, New York's a safer place for him to be." -- The Edge With Paula Zahn

5/14... "The fact that he relies on facts--says things that are not factual--are going to undermine his campaign." -- New York Times

2/20..."I don't want to win? If that were the case why the heck am I on the bus 16 hours a day, shaking thousands of hands, giving hundreds of speeches, getting pillared in the press and cartoons and still staying on message to win?" -- Newsweek (Feb. 28 edition)

5/10..."I think we agree, the past is over." —- On his meeting with John McCain, Dallas Morning News.

5/5..."It's clearly a budget. It's got a lot of numbers in it."--In answer to the charge that, as Texas governor, he did not make up a state budget, -- Reuters.

4/26..."I hope we get to the bottom of the answer. It's what I'm interested to know." -- On Elian negotiations, AP.

3/2... "I've got a record, a record that is conservative and a record that is compassionated." -- NYT Debate Transcript

2/23..."It is not Reaganesque to support a tax plan that is Clinton in nature." (Los Angeles) -- Slate, 2/29

2/25... "After he had failed a reporter's pop quiz last fall about foreign leaders, including the name of the Indian prime minister, Mr. Bush winced today when a moderator mentioned the words "pop quiz." Jokingly, Mr. Bush dared the moderator to ask him the name of the Indian president. "Do you know who the president of India is?" the moderator asked obligingly. "Vajpayee," Mr. Bush said, grinning and looking pleased with himself. But Atal Behari Vajpayee is the prime minister of India; the president is K. R. Narayanan." -- New York Times, 2/26
