LMAO!! Nobody ever said Dubya' was the most articulated speaker. He does come up with some priceless stuff.

'course, Lee, if it had been Thuh Reverund Jacksun, it would have been an "eloquent, stirring speech".

Bush seems to be on something or drunk a lot recently, doesn't he? And he always looks like he is a deer looking into headlights, too. At least in earlier goofs, he either recognizes them or is in general smiling and goofing around during the speech, but now he just looks like he is scared to death all the time, which is quite appropriate, actually, given the growing number of torch bearing citizens looking for blood for 9/11.

Damn I wish I had predicted this in my previous posts, but I did not realize that the family law court would work its magic so quickly on Britney Spears...

Some of you may think this is off topic, but fueling wars based on lies and keeping them going to make a ton of money at the expense of innocent lives is not limited to big governments. This case is like the family law court's wet dream of a custody case, money-wise.

See here how it so closely follows the "family law court's game plan..."

http://tinyurl.com/yv2u4t

Heaven help those poor kids now that the family court, along with the army of "psychologists, psychiatrists, special mediators, evaluators, therapists, court appointed attorneys for children and court appointed child visitation supervisors" are all prepared to "line up at the pig's trough to feed off the finances of both parents."

And I love all this "closed door" crap mentioned in the Spears article, too. It's just a repeat of the presentation of evidence on 9/11 issues to a tee. In the same way that there is no need to openly present evidence on 9/11 for "national security reasons," family courts completely abuse "children's security reasons" in the same way to allow little mini-dictators (family law judges) free reign over people's lives that they really should not have.

Evidence-wise, everything is a big secret, even to the targeted parent, so there is no real defense to manipulations, lies, and distortions. In fact, it is actually highly encouraged and rewarded, unfortunately, under the current system -- and don't kid yourself that Britney's own attorneys did not want exactly what was ordered today, probably.

Simple remedy: not a single custody decision should be made w/o at least three other people in the room (say a small jury) that is not a judge, not a lawyer, not a member of the army of money-pigs mentioned above.

I hope Spears and Baldwin get together and kick the ass of the entire family court system for the number of children's lives it has screwed, just for the sake of making money. Sound familiar?

Bush is just running out the clock. He'll bomb Iran and split.

Let's just hope he does it right.

Does it "right"? Oh, please, tell us, senior military expert and renowned adviser to leaders all around the world, what is the "right" way to bomb the crap out of a country that has done nothing?

Having Blackwater investigated properly is a good first step in the right direction here...

Drip, drip, drip... it's not like the damn is suddenly going to repair itself and not break completely here, one of these day, I hope sooner rather than later!

"In a narrowly crafted ruling, U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly invalidated part of President Bush's 2001 executive order, which allowed former presidents and vice presidents to review executive records before they are released under the Freedom of Information Act."

Back to Blackwater... here is the FoKKKs News version of what happened as of last week. I'd say FoKKKs is taking the testimonies of the Blackwater employees over the testimonies of the Iraqi witnesses in this story, which seems to defend Blackwater somewhat...

http://tinyurl.com/2renla

I am beginning to wonder if it is such a good idea to kick Blackwater out of Iraq right now and send them back to the US w/o us having much of a US military presence here. It was the only question I had in my previous idea that the current regime was going to nuke the US military while most of it is in Iraq, blame it on Iran, and then declare a police state here at home using the regime's private army take control of US cities.

My only question was how were they going to get Blackwater home ahead of the US military before the nuking took place, and viola!

Mission accomplished in Iraq (millions of dark-skinned people murdered) so now time to create a controversy and send Blackwater home ahead of the military.

I've also noticed a barrage of reports in the AP news lately about how great everything is suddenly going in Iraq and how it may be time to cut back on the presence of the private security forces anyway.

I'd say we ban them from coming home unless they are accompanied by the US military. They need to be watched!

What a fun poll, Life. I was in complete alignment with Kucinich. Hilary was my number four (your number 11, I'm sure). Good enough for me. The vagina factor trumps all for me in this election. Sorry, guys, desperate times call for desperate measures.

Can't believe Joe Biden seems to be the right of many Republicans here. No wonder my guy Jeremy Scahill does not like him very much...

...OH!! and it was from a Minnesoooda station no less.

H Nicole said...

I still can't figure that Minnesota place out, man. What a weird place. Lots of funny business, it seems. Talk about seeing Trolls and Ops behind every tree. I'm sure in Minnesota I probably wouldn't be too far off!

H Nicole said...

1) Senator from Minnesota Paul Wellstone and family die in a small plane crash on Oct. 25, 2002, just a few days before an election in which Wellstone, who originally was behind in the polls, suddenly surged ahead by several percentage points when he voted against the gulf war on October 11, 2002.

2) Norm Coleman, current senator, went on to win the election that he otherwise probably would not have won had Wellstone not died in a plane crash. Coleman was the first in line to condemn Larry Craig for being arrested in "his" bathroom at the Minnesota airport.

3) Michael Zebuhr, one of Dr. Judy's Wood's students, is murdered in a relatively safe Minnesota neighborhood in March of 2006, while visiting his mother and his sister, just a week after he completed laboratory work that was critical of Prof. Steven Jones' claims of molten steel at ground zero.

4) Amy Klobuchar, the DA in charge of Michael Zebuhr's case, which received heavy criticism for being sloppy and looking so obviously like a cover-up, is elected as a the new Senator of Minnesota just a few months later in November, 2006.

5) The senator that Klobuchar replaced, Mark Dayton, was the first and only senator to publicly question the 9/11 commission report. He decide not the run for re-election.

6) Keith Ellison from Minnesota, first Muslim congressperson, compares Bush to Hitler in June of 2007, then a bridge in his home district "collapses" a few weeks later. It has yet to be determined what caused the "collapse."

7) Larry Craig found playing footsie in a men's bathroom in Minnesota, etc...

8) Didn't a few of the hijackers purportedly attend flight school in Minnesota?

9) Rachel Paulose, US Attorney from Minnesota, is under investigation for all the funny business involving the firing and questionable hiring of certain US attorneys under Gonzales. Wiki says she is the first Indian American woman[1], the youngest attorney, and the first woman in Minnesota to hold this post.[2]
I personally am almost willing to forgive any and all transgressions here just because she is a young woman in a key political position -- hey, desperate times...

10) And now this poll is from Minnesota! I'm tellin ya, the coincidences and funny business just keeps stacking up! :)

Looks like things might be looking up a bit in Burma...

U.N. envoy meets with Myanmar leader

http://tinyurl.com/3y6xxn

I was interested to see this little ditty about how the current military leader Than Shwe "feels" about Aung San Suu Kyi, the opposition leader and Nobel peace laureate who has been under house arrest for years...

"Diplomats say Than Shwe has an intense hatred for her."

I know that the "if she were a man" line gets old, but seriously, if she were a man, would anybody on the planet be reporting such a line? It's a very telling sentence, and it is obvious that there is a lot of Biting Vaginae Syndrome going around in Burma, no doubt.

These young men and women do not deserve to have to listen to their commitment being besmirched by Rush Limbaugh, who never served in the armed forces and whose idea of personal valor is sending his $380 a week housekeeper out to buy his drugs for him. He's got no business on the radio launching attacks on military personnel like that, and his right to free speech does not guarantee him placement there at government expense. I'm sure the GOP would fight like hell to keep him on -- look at all the effort they went to in order to keep Republicans on the reservation with Ari Fleisher's ads and the Petraeus three ring circus -- but that's because removing him would actually be meaningful.

Take Rush off the Armed Forces Radio. Really, Senators, protecting the troops from this kind of abuse actually is what you are elected to do.

Update: Limbaugh, with the help of Fox News, cuts 1 minute and 35 seconds of the 1 minute and 50 second discussion and pretends he never made the offending comment. Credulous wingnuts everywhere will no doubt take the bait. The entire clip is can be found here.

Lie, cover up, obfuscate -- it's not just Limpo, it's the Repug mantra. And if that doesn't work, their most threatening opponents tend to have "accidents." It's so convenient, the way it always seems to work out for them!

Of course it all depends on what the meaning of the word is, is.

H Nicole said...

Did Limbaugh just call a Republican who did not agree with his neo-nazi, kill the dark-skinned people views a "non-Republican?"

Did Limbaugh just call any US soldier who disagrees with his views a "fake" soldier?

WTF?

How in the hell did all these friggin' KKK neo-nazi's get such a strangle-hold on our airwaves?

H Nicole said...

Black-hater in the news today...

"Blackwater chairman defends his company"

http://tinyurl.com/24b6td

I am most curious about the numbers of Blackwater employees that are cited as currently being in Iraq. I keep seeing numbers now in the mainstream media on the order of 1000.

This directly contradicts Jeremy Scahill's estimates which seem to be more on the order of 100,000. That's a pretty big difference.

Why is the government granting over $600 million in no-bid contracts to a company for only 1000 private security guards? Are they that good? That's like a half a million per security guard.

More likely the MSM numbers are off -- way off. Why is the MSM underreporting the number of private soldiers in Iraq, and by so much?

moneysmith said...

Those are all excellent questions, h nicole! But I doubt if we'll see any answers from the white haus anytime soon.

I accidentally stumbled upon the above news clip about Winnie (Danica McKellar) from the "The Wonder Years" writing a book for young girls (which I highly recommend for boys or girls) called, "Math Doesn't Suck: How to Survive Middle School Math Without Losing Your Mind or Breaking a Nail" while watching a news clip about "Why Violence in Iraq Has Decreased"...

http://tinyurl.com/32ambh

I think I prefer to stick with Jeremy Scahill's explanation for why violence has decreased -- there are no more dark skinned people left to kill...

BTW: Anybody in politics out there paying attention, Dem or Rep (not sure what Winnie's political views are), you maybe ought to think seriously of recruiting our wonderful Ms. McKellar into politics to groom her for a political career.

Wes Clark (friend of the show) Launches Campaign To Get Rush Dumped From Armed Forces Radio

By Greg Sargent - October 2, 2007, 4:31PM

Retired general Wes Clark has joined the campaign against Rush "phony soldiers" Limbaugh, with a specific goal in mind: Getting Congress to dump the talk show host from Armed Forces Radio.

WesPac, Clark's political organization, is appealing to supporters to add their names to a Clark-authored email pressing their members of Congress to get Limbaugh off the station, a course of action that some Limbaugh critics, such as Jane Hamsher, are pushing as an alternative to a Congressional measure condemning him.

"It's time to put real pressure on Rush Limbaugh," Clark writes. "His show is broadcast on Armed Forces Radio, and this time we are going to go straight to the lifeblood of Rush's show -- Congress. Congress has the power to remove Rush Limbaugh from Armed Forces Radio, and it won't be as easy for elected officials to ignore our call. Tax dollars are used to fund Armed Forces Radio, and that money is not intended for radio show hosts to spout insults at our soldiers."

House Dem sources were unable to say at this early juncture whether the idea would gain traction with the Dem Congressional leadership. Seems like an interesting approach -- stay tuned.

WOW! For a little radio talk show that has a small audience and is not nearly top-rated, Rush sure generated alot of attention, didn't he?

For someone so meaningless in the media world (according to Dems.) they sure put the focus on him regarding his comments.

Some are a little confused. It is not Rush that launces attacks on the military. The Dems. do a great job of that all by themselves.
Has everyone forgotten about the remarks made by Kennedy, Murtha, Kerry and Rambo Reid (just to mention a few)? If so, tune into Rush and he'll refresh your collective memories.

Bush said "childrens" instead of "children". Rush said "soldiers" instead of "soldier". To anyone else it sounds like a verbal error, using plural instead of singular. To the desperate left-wing it is a bottom of the barrel smear attack. It must have been a really slow week for the losers.

From Today's Variety

Fox News Channel has finished another dominating quarter in cable news, but the growth story continues to be MSNBC, up 53% in primetime from a year ago on the strength of its 8 p.m. anchor "Countdown With Keith Olbermann."

MSNBC's primetime growth is driven by Olbermann's "Countdown," which averaged 744,000 viewers, a 73% increase from the same period last year.

LifeBeginsAt200MPH said...

...and BO is "down" to only 2.5 MILLION.

I've watched him and Olbermann is a hack.

To reiterate, as shoes said earlier:

"...the growth story continues to be MSNBC, up 53% in primetime from a year ago on the strength of its 8 p.m. anchor "Countdown With Keith Olbermann."

MSNBC's primetime growth is driven by Olbermann's "Countdown," which averaged 744,000 viewers, a 73% increase from the same period last year."


If that's too complicated for you, here's how it breaks down, rephrased several different ways, in hopes that one of them will penetrate whatever's up there between your ears:

Olbermann's show is gaining on Falafel guy's.

Olbermann's audience is increasing.

More people are watching Olbermann -- 73% more! -- than were a year ago.

Got it? Geez, I feel sorry for any teachers who had you in a class.

LifeBeginsAt200MPH said...

And BO still has more than 2.5 times as many viewers.

73% increase of nothing is still nothing.

Much like the difference between selling 2 books and 4 books. a 200% increase in sales still equals nothing.

moneysmith said...

Can't stand that Olbermann is gaining on your hero, can you? Just wait ...

Lee said...

MS: "Fox finished another dominating quarter in cable news." So, what's your point? That MSMBC is still playing catch-up?

"Can't stand that Rabid Dog Olbermann is gaining on BO?" No, I would say it is YOU who can't stand that Rabid Dog is still BEHIND Bill.

moneysmith said...

Don't think so. Already posted an expert who said O'Lielly's audience is only about half fans, the other half NON FANS who want to hear what he's distorting today. For some of us (the ones with brains), his show is like a comedy routine, by a buffoon who's unintentionally funny!!

LifeBeginsAt200MPH said...

I don't expect you to understand this as it actually requires brains...but...

BO's "audience is only about half fans, the other half NON FANS"...

What's that tell ya'...? DUH!!

That half the people watching BO are laughing at him, not with him.
