Like, what's going on here anyway... I used to thing of myself as a liberal (okay, maybe progressive) but these days I'm thinkin' more like a Nixon (oh, the horrors) Republican....

Lets face it, Bush and his crew are extremits who don't give a danged about deficits 'er big intrusive government 'er warrin' with anyone they want to war with???? Hey, back long time ago in a distant gallexy this was like liberalism?????

What has happened???

And question 2, why do so many folks who support these things think of themselves as conservatives????

It's really simple, Bobert. Some folks have to be brainwashed. For others, a light rinse will do.

The thing about when yer brainwashed, you don't even notice it. It takes a severe reality adjustment to even start the ole brain ticking over again. I think that is starting to happen a bit more now than it was last November as folks notice the consequences of various choices.

The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has limits.

In Australia the 'Liberal Party' went thru a mostly unnoticed metamorphosis - Most of them went way over to the right and said "there's more of us than there is of you, so we're keeping the name 'Liberal Party'" - that's why the Democrats were formed - Party Slogan "We're here to keep the bastards honest!"

A person much more famous than me once said many years ago "The last thing the US needs is TWO Republican Parties!"

Yeah - I call it the "Animal Farm Syndrome"

near the end of the book, the animals sneak a look thru the window an the pigs partying with the men, "and they looked from one to the other, and could see no difference" (paraphrased) ...

That's the problem with first past the post voting systems: the organisations keep rolling on, and there's no way to reform them by having other parties grow up and replace them, forcing the now obsolete parties to either expire or work on genuine reform.

Well, the Democrats used to be the Republicans, or was it the reverse?

PLO hijack airliner and vow to fly it into the Oakridge nuclear plant! Conversation between plane and tower broadcast LIVE! Oakridge facility evacuated.

The date of this real incident: 1972. Our President, Richard Nixon

When we were averaging about 2 highjackings a month and pilots were carrying, just in case, maps of Cuba the 1972 incident was the last straw. We began to screen passengers for things like guns. In the first month the airports found 5,000 guns.

Armed guards on planes was still considered too big a threat of sudden decompression.

PS the Oakridge hijackers wanted $10 million or they would fly into the nuke plant.

It seems we have a new Party, the Republicrats. The way out of this nasty mess is for liberals to assert themselves and say hey if the Dems don't speak for us any more than they don't need our votes.

Now the questions becomes again, does anyone really believe our votes count since we've given them away to machines?

As to Hillary and the gang who would like to increase troop strength in Iraq, the definition for insanity is doing the same thing over and over that doesn't work.

The War is been won by the opposition. They've succeeded in creating an atmosphere for fear and repression here in theStates spearheaded by the GOP leaders. Civil Rights are going South.
Environment is becoming more and more polluted. Now they've decided to change the language to "struggle against extremism" instead of "war on terror". Problem. They are the extremists they are struggling against. The new words don't make the invasion go away.

Hi, Kendall. I hope things are well with you. If you get a spare moment, please let me know, OK?

I don't remember where that quotation (genius/stupidity) comes from. I thought everyone knew it. I want to make clear that it ain't mine. I'll look for a source on it and get back here.

Thank you, K.
