More "Good News" from Iraq...

At least 53 Iraqis were killed and 80 more injured Tuesday during numerous bombings and armed attacks throughout the country. The oil infrastructure was also targeted. No foreign military deaths were reported.

UPDATE: 9/20/07
But wait! There's more...

This all smacks of global genocide to me. Leaders getting together and killing their own while conveniently blaming it on each other for effect. "Hey, if we kill 3,000 Americans and blame it on you, just think of the numbers of "less valuable" non-Americans you can kill and blame it on us! Like 1,000,000 at least if you play your cards right!"

One of Barbara Lee's mannerisms that she does when she gets particularly peeved during her speeches is she says, "Quite frankly" a lot.

Well, quite frankly, America is not in Darfur because it would involve saving the lives of a large number of dark-skinned people, and that is not what America is about lately, unfortunately.

Quite frankly, I would go as far as to say that the main reason we are in Iraq is to allow yet another mass genocide of dark-skinned people to be carried off "legitimately" while hiding behind the banner of confronting evil dictators and terrorism (officially) and oil (unofficially) as the main reasons we are in Iraq.

There are infinitely better ways to deal with evil dictators, terrorism, and diminishing oil reserves, starting with ending the hypocrisy and dealing with our own in-house dictators and terrorists.

H Nicole said...

And here is how the job is done: 180,000 "private" security forces that appear to have no consequences for murdering as many dark-skinned people as possible. I wonder if they get paid by the killing...

I agree, h nic. Kanye West was right -- "George Bush doesn't care about black people."

Meanwhile, as we debate the secretive deaths of what could possibly be millions of Iraqis for all we know, Mitt Romney tackles another very serious and life-threatening issue head on:

"Romney targets gay marriage in new ad..."

Fax time again! Here is a letter sent to the 200 Republican representatives of the House. The Democrats actually don't need them to take complete control of what happens with the occupation, but it is nice to give them the opportunity to join their Republican colleague Ron Paul in doing the right thing here, which is to follow the will of their constituents -- and avoid possible acts of treason along the way.

September 19, 2007


Dear Republican Leader and Fellow Human Being:

Why are you not listed as a signatory to The Honorable Barbara Lee’s letter to the president regarding his occupation of Iraq, a letter which has received the support of your colleague in the House and Republican presidential candidate, The Honorable Ron Paul from Texas, whose political views I admire and respect?

http://tinyurl.com/35wf43

Is an end to the occupation not the will of the people in your district?

According to Drew Carey, host of "Power of 10," a Rasmussen Reports poll for his show revealed that only 12% of Americans approved of staying in Iraq and finishing the job we started (http://www.billmaher.com/?page_id=207). I’m taking that as an 88% disapproval rating for remaining in Iraq.

Interestingly enough, according to an MSNBC online poll in which over 565,000 people have responded, a similar percentage (89%) think that the president’s actions while in office have justified impeachment (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/10562904/).

Many, like Dr. Robert M. Bowman, Lt. Col., USAF, ret., would even go as far as to have certain members of this administration arrested for criminal behavior and tried for treason (http://www.thepatriots.us/).

Even a highly respected man across all political parties, Mr. Alan Greenspan, makes it clear in his new book that he is disappointed in the behavior of the president and vice-president, and he openly states: "I am saddened that it is politically inconvenient to acknowledge what everyone knows: the Iraq war is largely about oil" (http://tinyurl.com/3dnkw3).

It is clear that the American people are fed up with this president and with his occupation. Aren’t you?


Sincerely,

H. Nicole Young, Ph.D., Representative of the Citizens of the United States of America (ROC-USA).

LoserBoy, for the umpteenth time, if you want your posts to be taken seriously, you have to provide a link to a REPUTABLE, OBJECTIVE source. So when you find one that says I'm an idiot (or an old hag, or a liar for saying I grew up on a farm) put it up -- or shut up.

Or here's a thought -- read what I actually wrote: Kanye West said it, not me, although I agree with him completely. And before you call us both idiots, you'll need a REAL NEWS source (write it down if it's too much for you to remember) to back up your claim. Otherwise, no one here will take you seriously. And even then it would be a stretch.

H Nicole said...

Speaking of citing your references... I finally found Lee's reference to the IBD/TIPP poll numbers cited on this blog concerning opinions on the occupation:

http://tinyurl.com/yp25n6

Here is the "official" explanation for how the poll was done, since even IBD/TIPP admits that their polls contradict all other polls:

"We too are in the polling business — using a transparent methodology that assures a random sampling of U.S. adults. The questions we recently asked about the war and national security generated quite different responses. For instance:"

Okay, well, new rule for S4I cited polls: at the very least, a poll has to cite the number of people polled. Otherwise, the poll can not be used as a point of argument.

H Nicole said...

This one is interesting today:

"Dan Rather sues CBS, Viacom for $70M" over that story about Bush.

http://tinyurl.com/24tyl5

It's sort of like the Alan Greenspan story. I'm not saying any of these guys are themselves 100% innocent, but I like seeing the cracks in the damn widen considerably by all the pre-damn-breaking posturing and finger-pointing going on right now.

LifeBeginsAt200MPH said...

Your statements make their own point as to your mental issues. Much like S4I's statement....

"The American people are more at risk of being injured by the pharmaceutical, insurance, tobacco, and fast food corporations than by any TERRORISTS."

You all got some serious issues. You're so out of touch with reality it's almost scary.

Below is a list of 21 Republicans whose seats are up for election in 2008. I keep seeing references to there being 22 Republican seats that are up, but I can't figure out who #22 is.

Four Republicans listed will reportedly not be defending their seats: Wayne Allard of Colorado, Larry Craig of Idaho, Chuck Hagel of Nebraska, and John Warner of Virginia.

Of the six Republican senators who voted today for ending-the-occupation type legislation, five of them: Collins (ME), Coleman (MN), Hagel (NE), Sununu (NH), and Smith (OR) are up for re-election below.

Of special interest is Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, probably the strongest Bush/War supporter in the Senate along with McCain, Lieberman, and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, who is also on the list below.

You would think McConnell, of all people, is safe for re-election considering he comes from one of the most conservative states in the union, but he appears to be in major trouble on the home front with dissastified constituents over the issue of the occupation:

http://tinyurl.com/3628bw

Makes you wonder where the other Republican senators, who probably have an even weaker conservative base than McConnell, are getting their support.

I put stars by the senators who are seeking re-election but have not supported recent anti-occupation legislation. According to their web sites and recent news articles, most of these senators seem open to the idea of supporting anti-occupation legislation, with a little encouragement.

Hey, LoserBoy, the one who's out of touch with reality isn't Shoes, it's you.

Here's one statistic: Nearly 200,000 Americans die each year from medical errors while in hospitals.

And look, here's a link to an actual news story from an unbiased source!

http://tinyurl.com/3bqlkd

But wait...there's more! Here's a story from FOX News, a source you and lee think is credible, on a study that found deaths from prescription medications nearly tripled in the last few years, to nearly 90,000 annually.

http://tinyurl.com/24pjjp

So that's nearly 300,000 deaths each year just from hospital errors and legal prescription drugs. And you still think we should be worried about terrorists coming to get us? You don't have to be a statistician to see how wrong you are. As usual.

LifeBeginsAt200MPH said...

Well, hell, MS, let's just go kill all the doctors and pharmacists and the problem will be solved. And while we're at it, lets outlaw cars, school playground equipment, swimming pools, boats, and ANYTHING else that people die from.

ACCIDENTAL death is a fact of life, but since dealing with facts is not in your realm, it does no good to go there.

In your deluded world, everything is a conspiracy, and Republicans and "sorry old white men" are all behind it.

And loserboy bothers me not, ya' old nag. What goes around comes around....

WOOF!!

moneysmith said...

I'm just stating facts. Where are your facts to back up what you say? If you think it's okay to go to war with a country that had nothing to do with 9/11, you probably don't care that the hospital deaths, the prescription med deaths and the smoking deaths are PREVENTABLE. Big difference.

Meanwhile, what happened to your "insights" on Darfur? All you responded to was Kanye West's statement.

And btw, here's some pretty solid proof from the U.S. Census Bureau that GWB doesn't care about black people: http://tinyurl.com/253rbe

Before you respond, remember if all you're going to do is call people names and regurgitate tired cliches, you're wasting your time. Oh, wait, I forgot -- you've clearly got nothing better to do.

Here's an idea -- why not get married again? That seemed to work out real well for you, LoserBoy.

LifeBeginsAt200MPH said...

ah yes...Darfur. Thanks for reminding me.

Simple solution. Our Pres calls their Pres or tribal chief, or whatever the hell he is and sets him straight.

"Ya' got 48 hours to lay down all your weapons in a big pile. We're coming over there and building a big ass airstrip and we're going to feed all your people until they can get back on their feet and join the modern world. We see anybody with a machete, let alone a gun, we're going to blow them to hell. Ya' got it asshole?"

The strong are obligated to defend the weak. And anybody that thinks GWB "hates black people" is an idiot.

'course, that's just a "sorry old white mans'" opinion. And since women are the weaker sex, it's beyond you to deal with anything that takes balls. It's called strength and leadership.

moneysmith said...

"Sorry old white man" is right. If it's such a no-brainer, why hasn't our no-brain "leader" done it?

There are probably far more "good old white men" than "bad old white men" but I have to admit, in my recent research on the US Senate, where I actually view all the senators web sites to see what they have to say, I am getting sort of tired of seeing old white man after old white man, even if many of them are probably not at all bad.

There is only one black senator, but at least he is high profile and is running for president -- Barrack Obama.

I can't believe this statistic, though: only 17% of Congress is made up of women. Geez. Representative government? Even medical schools and law schools are up to 50/50 now. WTF?

http://tinyurl.com/2lj578

H Nicole said...

Weaker physically. That is not the most important measurement of strength, Life.

moneysmith said...

So true, h nicole. Strength isn't entirely physical, by any means. Remember "The DaVinci Code"? Men may be stronger, but women are more powerful in other ways.

LifeBeginsAt200MPH said...

"If it's such a no-brainer, why hasn't our no-brain "leader" done it?"

Because all the candy asses would be screaming about "occupation", and "invasion", and all the other buzz words they use.

The left wing screams and whines about equal rights and human rights and everybody's "rights". Fact of the matter is that if the "sorry old white men" like me had our way, there'd be public executions for child murderers, pedophile killers, career criminals, and their ilk. But, as long as everybody is not equal, it gives the loony left a platform to preach from, and the more people are kept down, the stronger their power and platform. Jesse Jackson, MLK, Sharpton, and all the other "leaders" don't/didn't have any desire to see equal rights for "all"...they would be worthless and insignificant and therefore their "power" would be lost...and they won't allow that. Of course, that's beyond your ability to realize that's what the "big picture" is.

moneysmith said...

PUBLIC EXECUTIONS? What is this, the Middle Ages? Human beings are supposed to be evolving and becoming more enlightened, leaving behind such barbaric practices. Or at least some of us like to think so. Of course, that doesn't include the sadists (aka, cowards) who enjoy pain and suffering, as long it's someone else who's being hurt.

If we're not in Darfur because of the "candy asses" then why didn't that stop shit-for-brains from going into Iraq? Same difference.

Oh, wait, silly me! The difference is there's oil in Iraq and nothing in Darfur except a lot of very poor black people, kind of like NOLA before Katrina. We all know that GeeDub doesn't care about them. Looks like you don't, either. You only named black men in your "critique," LoserBoy. Not cool.

So to summarize, this is who we are dealing with: a sadist, coward, misogynist, racist, miscreant, and big fat liar. I probably overlooked something, but it's a good start!

Never was a "restaurant supply salesman"...but, if I ever was, it'd be better than being a left wing nut job who has no sense of history and does nothing but parrot what his "masters" tell him. Rehashing old news, quoting propaganda from loony web sites who hate this country and GWB, and is a double talking queep who does not support the troops or freedom and democracy for the less fortunate in the world.

And I smoke and drive a 'vette...WTF does that have to do with anything, other than attacking me personally? Don't bother me, but it evidently puts a bug up your butt. At least I'm not a Goreon.

And "restaurant supplies" are plates, napkins, chairs, and anything else that has to do with the front and back of the house as opposed to the actual business end of the business.
