It's All In The Timing....

This is what I think....

I think everybody in America ought to get a backhoe, dig a giant hole, back their Hummer into it, cover it with dirt and call that a bomb shelter, because we're going to need some shelter from the coming storm.

All week we were treated to the Republicans clarifying for us dummies, you know, the Americans who want to see a timetable for getting out of Iraq and who don't support the war....what do they call us? Oh, yeah, THE MAJORITY!

The Republicans clarified for us how getting out of Iraq would be cutting and running, and would be a slap in the face to all those heroic sons and daughters who have already died there trying to force freedom down the throats of an ungrateful nation.

They told us again and again how the War on Terror can't be run as a criminal investigation, but can only be won militarily.

And, as expected, the will of the President prevailed over the will of the People, and Congress approved resolutions supporting the war and defeated resolutions calling for redeployment. It didn't even matter that the Iraqi government itself has asked for a timetable for US withdrawl.

And people in Miami were arrested for plotting to blow up the Sears Tower.

Well, OK, then. There is a terrorist threat, and based on what we learned from the Republicans this week, there is only one course of action we can take.

We have to pre-emptively invade America.

These were American citizens, living in America, so it is clear that the US is harboring terrorists bent on attacking America. After September 11th, a domestic terrorist INSIDE the US used ANTHRAX, a known WEAPON OF MASS DESTRUCTION on our own people. The first anthrax death was in...FLORIDA. Now, there is no proof that these American terrorists were linked to that attack, or that they possess further stockpiles of anthrax...but they haven't proved they don't, and until they do, the danger is clear. Nor has this group of American Christians, who are--by their own admission--bent on creating a second 9-11, proven to anyone's satisfaction that they aren't attempting to aquire nuclear weapons. And even if Al Qaida had nothing to do with them, the FBI agent posing as Al Qaida got them to be very interested in Al Qaida support, so if Al Qaida were interested in helping homegrown terrorists, we know homegrown terrorists would accept that help.

My God, are you blind to the risks here? Is your love of logic and the law worth the deaths of millions of Americans? And here, I mean the innocent Americans, not the Americans who want to kill Americans, because obviously Americans who want to kill Americans should be killed by Americans before they can kill any Americans.

Its simple.

Let me put it to you this way. If the Republicans are right, and they have to be, because otherwise God wouldn't let them bein power, we will never stop these evil doers with any method short of full scale military invasion. That's how we won in Afghanistan, and that's how we're winning in Iraq. The path is clear. We now have to invade ourselves....or at the very least, we have to invade Florida.

It doesn't matter that law enforcement uncovered the plot and thwarted it by arresting them. So what? Don't let these criminals try to sidetrack you from the mission at hand. Military action is the only effective tool against terror and it has to be used before smoking gun turns out to be a mushroom cloud.


And just like soldiers in Iraq can't always distinguish between civilians and insurgents, how are we supposed to know for certain which Floridians are the good guys and which are smiling at us because they're picturing how we'd look with radiation poisoning after their dirty bomb goes off in our living room? Better safe than certain, that's our national post 9-11 motto.

Because you can't be 100% cetain. And you're putting the entire nation at risk if you even try.

Floridians, you are either with us or you are with these god-loving, bible carrying, militant Christian extremists bent on destroying their own country. We have to fight them in Florida so we don't have to fight them in Illinois. How much clearer could it be?

And if we fight, we have to fight to win. All the way. Total victory. No retreat, no surrender, no way.

Nobody is pulling out of Florida until the job is done, so Jeb Bush, start stocking your spider hole....because....Freedom is on the march!

The Pentagon Wants To Be Your My Space Buddy

I know that you should never put anything on the internet you don't want on the 6:00 news...but that's usually a rule of thumb designed to keep you from making an ass of yourself and never being able to live down the embarrassment of sending out a "reply all" when you meant it to go to a trusted friend who already knows you're an ass.

Or blogging when you are drunk.

Now, just when you thought it couldn't get worse than the NSA wiretaps on your phone, you have to worry about having even more of your tax dollars used against you and your attempts to make virtual friends.

According to a recent article in New Scientist Technology, the Pentagon is gathering, storing, and analyzing data from social networking sites in order to create a more detailed impression of...everyone. Follow the link and read the whole story.

Check it out, and be afraid. And if you helped vote in this era of agressive avoidance of oversight and reduction in privacy in the name of preserving freedom....I hope they get you first.

Take action--call and write Congress today

Here's what I wrote:

Dear Senator,

Please oppose efforts to revise the constitution to reflect the religious intolerance of ultra conservatives who advocate an erosion of the separation of church and state, and the advancement of an American theocracy in order to legistlate their own narrow view of morality.

This is something we have gone to war in other nations to prevent, please take action now to prevent it at home.

You can not, with any credibility, claim to be freedom loving and spreading it around the world while at the same time actively seeking to limit freedoms at home.

Help instead to promote monogomy among gays and lesbians by advocating gay marriage, which would be a tremendous postive step in helping to reduce the spread of AIDS.

Here's an easy way to do it:

Fear and Self-Loathing in Washington?

From Wayne Madsen Report:

More on George W. Bush's "Sanctity of Marriage" gay marriage constitutional ban.
George W. Bush's marital problems have just taken another turn for the worse. Apparently, Mr. Bush has not only engaged in an extra-marital affair with a member of the opposite sex who is also a senior member of his Cabinet, but also a member of the same sex. WMR received the following release this morning from Leola McConnell, Democratic candidate for Governor of Nevada (who has been endorsed by WMR). McConnell is a one-time professional dominatrix.

"President Bush's speech to the nation Monday. If he doesn't say he's a gay American or at the least a bisexual one then he shouldn't be making one at all. And the notion that it would be in regards to writing bigotry into our nation's Constitution is reprehensible. Too bad it isn't me doing the rebuttal because in 1984, I watched him perform (with the enthusiasm of homosexual male who had done this many times before) a homosexual act on another man, namely Victor Ashe. Victor Ashe is the current Ambassador to the nation of Poland who should also come out like former Governor McGreevey of New Jersey and admit to being a gay American. Other homo-erotic acts were also performed by then private citizen George Bush because I performed one of them on him personally.

I am the woman this website ( speaks of that has been posted on the net nearly two years now. None of this would be the business of anyone but President Bush's little ruse to save his failed presidency by using DOMA [Defense of Marriage Act] to divide Americans one from the other has to be exposed as the act of a desperate closeted homosexual man. The only crime in being GLBT is in the hiding. The President needs to come clean with the American people about his own past sexual behavior before he tries to besmirch the humanity of people in search of sincerely committing to the same bonds of matrimony he's afforded. He violated his own vows of monogamy having a homosexual affair with a long time family friend of whom his wife had no knowledge. His hypocrisy seems to know no bounds.

I had planned to run for governor of Nevada without going into any of this but his planned nationally televised address to the nation makes it necessary for me to address his attempt at division in as public a way as he picked to try this Bushification of reality regarding same sex marriages.

Leola McConnell
Liberal Democratic candidate for Governor of Nevada"

Bush Leading Republican War on Monogomy!

(Even though he, personally, doesn't give a sh*t, according to Newsweek.)

Why is it, really, that Republicans are so hot to keep gays from committed, long term relationships which exclude multiple partners? Why do they really want to perpetuate the myth of homosexual promiscuity?

Remember, the White House's favorite reporter was a gay male prostitute who got inside access even more often than Jack Abramoff.

Don't we have a few more important things to address at this particular moment in history than a constitutional amendment on gay marriage and flag burning?

Where Is Ken Starr When You Need Him?

Now, picture them naked.


I remember very well her verbal slip back in 2004 when she referred to the President as "my husb--" but caught herself almost in time. She's never been married, so a slip like that isn't easy to explain away.

I also remember how in Woodward's book there were those Crawford get togethers where Condi would sing spirituals for him. I wondered then if she tucked him in and read to him at night. More ick.

Nothing is confirmed, of course, but with this administration the old line of "Don't believe anything until it is officially denied" rings truer than ever.

And the more "vehemently" they deny it, the more true it likely is.

I know there are more serious things to worry about than Presidential Haditha and that this is the first administration I know of which fairly routinely requires ethics training for its employees and now the combat troops...and not as part of the plan to fulfil W's campaign promise to bring honor back to the White House in the very first minute of the first hour of the first day of a Bush Administration. Or Robert Kennedy's new report on the voter fraud in Ohio. Or what passes for diplomacy with Iran.

Rumor inside the beltway now has it that Laura Bush has moved out of the White House and into the Mayflower Hotel because she's had enough of the ongoing affair between her husband and the Secretary of State. (From Wayne Madsen's website)

So...inquiring minds want to know. (Actually it was the tabloid The Globe which ran the cover story about the Bush Breakup, not the National Enquirer, in the interest of credit where it is or isn't due.)

America has spoken--the only scandal that can capture and hold our attention is a sex scandal.

So, do we have one? Or will we have to be content with the now run of the mill torture, war crimes, vote fraud, and congressional corruption scandals you've been giving us?
