 The Harder They Fall

The Dreier-Hastert press conference felt in every way like the very last act in the desperate black comedy known as the Tom DeLay era of Republican rule in Washington. What will follow is a new play, a gruesome tragedy in all likelihood, whose main characters will be Abramoff, an enraged public and a succession of grandstanding criminal prosecutors.

 Maybe This Can Help Bush Deliver Better Speeches?

Forget pretending you are talking to one person or concentrating on a single point in the audience -- having sex is good way to calm nerves before giving a speech or presentation.

But Stuart Brody, a psychologist at the University of Paisley in Scotland, said it has to be full sexual intercourse to get the best results.

Lisa,

I love your site, and I am trying to write to the ones I try to frequent often to mention that the Young Turks on Sirius radio TalkLeft, and also streaming on the web.  The Young Turks have been on the air since 5pm central time thursday night and are stating they are filibustering until the democrats get 41 together to filibuster Alito.  Here is the information: 

The web site is:  http://www.youngturk.com/xoops/  You can check them out by simply clicking on the tv screen, or you can click to simply listen to the show while at your computer via audio only.  You can also use the link  http://www.radiopower.org/talkradio/  to pick the streaming method that works for you on your computer.

Please say something about these troopers for justice, especially Ben and Jill.  They are the two of the three that have been on constantly since thursday night.

Annie in Chicago

Thanks Annie.  Great site too.

If we know something about the NSA, then something even more secret is

out there.  That seems to be the way they operate, create a new one

more secret every time one is discovered.  That is why we have so many

intelligence agencies.

I don't think they care at all about Valerie Plame because they are too

enamored with this administration (no matter who is really running it)

because they are given so much free rein under this group.  And the

neoconfederates are trying to do as the president of Zimbabwe "I am

going to make the party greater than the government".

 

I think bloggers and editorial writers need to start a campaign to

appeal to the workers in the spy agencies, to let them know that to be

a whistleblower is to be a true American and try to dissolve these

agencies from within.  It should start with educating them on the fundamental

principles this nation was founded on as written in the Declaration of

Independence (sample below).

 

For the NSA spys tracking this e-mail.  If the Constitution is the

highest law in the land, it had to be issued and ratified by a legal

body.  If the Continental Congress was legal, then it was legally

established by the Declaration of Independence.  Now in the DOI it

clearly states "we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men

are created equal and they are endowed by their creator with certain

unalienable rights, and among these are life liberty and the pursuit of

happiness".

Note it doesn't say "american men".   Therefore anyone from any nation

who comes under our authority has the same rights as any american

citizen.  And the 9th amendment to the Constitution states that "The

enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall ot be

construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people" (take

that strict constructionists, the constitution says you can't exist).

Therefore you spooks who think you are saving America are destroying

The principles it was founded on.  Give up.  Quit.  Go home.  We don't want

or need you destroying our country.

 

Finally, thanks for your comments about the immigrants (you need to see

the movie "a Day without a Mexican" funny and tragic at once).  If we

dedicated our national resources to building the economies of other

nations instead of building weapons to dominate them, they wouldn't

need to come here.

 

Richard

 

I sure hope someone in the CIA leaked information to Patrick Fitzgerald about who blew Valerie Plame’s cover.  It stands to reason it was someone in the CIA who outed her. Even if it was Bush, Cheney or Rove who told Libby, someone had to tell our illustrious leaders first.  Just my theory.

 

I would think any spy in any agency would be disturbed that a covert agent’s identity was revealed for political revenge. Any thinking spy anyway.

 

Bush wants us to be afraid of being spied on – and it is working.

 

I believe opening our country to south of the border immigration would be a boon to our economy.  I was so grateful to the Mexican/Honduran/Guatemalan workers that were able to help me repair my home badly damaged by Hurricane Ivan. They improved the quality of life in my community after Ivan…and opened many businesses that did not exist before Ivan.

 

As the granddaughter of Ellis Island immigrants I have reaped the benefits of the great country they built.

 

And population-wise we must catch up the next emerging superpower, China!

ChinaPopulation: 1,306,313,812

United StatesPopulation: 295,734,134

Lisa,

 Portland, Oregon certainly does have it's share of interesting bumper stickers.

I've been studying witchcraft
