Thanks for the link Re: the North Korean Intell, that you find so believable Amos.

Does that include the following from that article?

Statement 1:
Pyongyang insists it will freeze its nuclear weapons drive only in return for rewards from the United States.

Statement 2:
North Korea "has no idea of dealing with the US any longer if the latter insists on the disgusting CVID (complete, verifiable, and irreversible dismantling)," he said.

Both indicate the extent of the "midget's turd" (KIJ's own description of himself by the way) threat posture to the world. Statement 1 summed up in one word - BLACKMAIL.

Everybody quite happy and content about that - I certainly wouldn't be - Statement 2 summed up in an old saying, "Pay the Danegeld, you never get rid of the Dane". What CVID, of our nuclear programme - don't be ridiculous! we might want to Blackmail you some more at some time in the future.

A short excerpt:

The commission is encouraging the country to consider questions the administration has never wanted asked. Why did these attacks happen on its watch? Could the government have done more to prevent them? Were intelligence warnings given short shrift? What was the administration thinking about on Sept. 10, 2001, and in the months before? And, yes, might the president not usefully express some remorse over any of these failures?

What's important is that the country is being pushed away from an empty debate over who is "tough" and who is "soft" to a substantive discussion of what our government might practically have done -- and can now do -- to stop terrorism.

THE WHITE HOUSE WASHINGTON D.C.

Mr. John Hinckley
St. Elizabeth's Hospital
Washington, DC

Dear John:

Laura and I hope that you are continuing your excellent progress in recovery from your mental problems. We were pleased to hear that you are now able to have unsupervised visits with your parents. The staff at the hospital reports that you are doing fine.

I have decided to seek a second term in office as your president and I would appreciate your support and the support of your fine parents.

I would hope that if there is anything that you need at the hospital, you would let us know.

By the way, are you aware that John Kerry is screwing Jody Foster?!

Sincerely,

George W. Bush, President

"A lie is only a lie when it is PROVEN to be one."

Wrong. A lie is a lie when you knowingly say something false.

If it's not proven, it just means you got away with the lie.

When it's proven to be a lie is when you got caught.

The latest Republican morality, is it? - it's only a lie if you get caught?

DougR:

I am sorry but I think a large number of lies have been proven. The first and foremost was the lies of the Florida election machine, and it declines from there.

Here is just one writeup out of many. Here's an excerpt:

"George W. Bush is a liar. He has lied large and small, directly and by omission. His Iraq lies have loomed largest. In the run-up to the invasion, Bush based his case for war on a variety of unfounded claims that extended far beyond his controversial uranium-from-Niger assertion. He maintained that Saddam Hussein possessed "a massive stockpile" of unconventional weapons and was directly "dealing" with Al Qaeda--two suppositions unsupported then (or now) by the available evidence. He said the International Atomic Energy Agency had produced a report in 1998 noting that Iraq was six months from developing a nuclear weapon; no such report existed (and the IAEA had actually reported then that there was no indication Iraq had the ability to produce weapons-grade material). Bush asserted that Iraq was "harboring a terrorist network, headed by a senior Al Qaeda terrorist planner"; US intelligence officials told reporters this terrorist was operating ouside of Al Qaeda control. And two days before launching the war, Bush said, "Intelligence gathered by this and other governments leaves no doubt that the Iraq regime continues to possess and conceal some of the most lethal weapons ever devised." Yet former deputy CIA director Richard Kerr, who is conducting a review of the prewar intelligence, has said that intelligence was full of qualifiers and caveats, and based on circumstantial and inferential evidence. That is, it was not no-doubt stuff. And after the major fighting was done, Bush declared, "We found the weapons of mass destruction." But he could only point to two tractor-trailers that the CIA and the Defense Intelligence Agency had concluded were mobile bioweapons labs. Other experts--including the DIA's own engineering experts--disagreed with this finding. "

Thos os just a small scraping from his foul deposits. His history is a carpet of large and small lies woven together in a comfortable web of convenient deception.

He has the moral fiber of a ringworm.

They're against the United Nations resolutions, and we've so far discovered two. And we'll find more weapons as time goes on. But for those who say we haven't found the banned manufacturing devices or banned weapons, they're wrong, we found them."

I can't see that there's anything out-of-line in pointing a contradiction between sounding off too loudly about the overriding importance of the institution of marriage, and yet being somewhat flexible about it in private life.

It's the kind of thing that was just up Holy Willie's street. The point being, when we expect other people to accept our own failings, we should be willing to accept theirs as well.

New York Times Story with the following awesome introductory lines:

"An Orwellian taint is emerging in the Bush administration's big victory last year in wringing the Medicare prescription drug subsidy from a balky Congress. The plan is being sold to the public through propagandistic ads disguised as TV news reports, and it turns out the government's top Medicare actuary was muzzled by superiors during the debate about the program's price tag."

In keeping with local policy I try to constrain myself to posting links and excerpts, Doug. Sure, I choose things that align with my POV -- why the hell would I do otherwise? But let me tell you what that point of view is. I think a lot of lies and manipulation have occurred under the direct or indirect control of the Bush machine; and I think by and large that those lies and manipulations have done more harm than good to the nation and the world. I think they have used perfectly sound ideals in false and hollow ways and done everything in their power to do what they want, rather than seek truth and right action. I am embarassed to be associated through citizenship with Rove, Bush, Cheny, Rumsfeld and Wolfowitz.

So forgive me if I try to offset this little wave of evildoing in the world. We do what we can.

Well, maybe you're right that listing all those divorces was inappropriate -- and in all humility, T., I don't know the details. It is perhaps arrogant and wrong-headed to take it on myself to meddle in the private affairs of people who probably were dealing with difficult situations as well as anyone else could; I should trust our own citizens to manage their own lives without my interference and niggling about it. I apologize for the cheap shots by listing their failures in public. I was meddling in their private lives. And that is wrong.

Rhetorical question because I don't for one second believe that you do.

The reasons and circumstances probably are many and varied, in most the decision to divorce was probably arrived at by mutual arrangement for the best as viewed by both partners.

*Rush Limbaugh - Rush and his current wife Marta have six marriages and
four divorces between them.

*Rep. Bob Barr of Georgia - Barr, not yet 50 years old, has been married
three times. Barr had the audacity to author and push the "Defense of

Think Social Security here. "We're not going to cut any current retirees or those getting ready to retire but................"

lthough the Bush administration is hardly the first to politicize science, no administration in recent memory has so shamelessly distorted scientific findings for policy reasons or suppressed them when they conflict with political goals. This is the nub of an indictment delivered last week by more than 60 prominent scientists, including 20 Nobel laureates. Their statement was accompanied by a report published by the Union of Concerned Scientists, listing cases where the administration has manipulated science on environmental and other issues.

Reading all of this puts me in mind of what my mom said during the 2000 elections. She said that she thought that Bush was likeable, someone you would like to go to a football game with. But in her mind, that was it. Not someone to be our president.

Keep in mind that Pres. Bush was not elected the first time, he was appointed.

But don't forget, they'll have a lot of electronic voting systems this time, which should make it easier getting the desired result, when it comes to counting anyway..

The word popular in this sense means views held among the population at large; it includes conservative, liberal, illiberal and reactionary.

Most of the Bush camp holds views in the latter two catego9ries.

Most people don't see it that way, Doug, even if maybe most people in the USA do.
