Dear Lisa:
Dateline...Utopian Demise, Utah. Senator Orrin Hatch (Republicon/Village Idiot- Utah) has submitted a new amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America. Under a super secret provision of the Patriot Act, amendments to the Constitution no longer need to be passed by the American people. George Bush signed the new amendment into law today, by executive order.
The new amendment provides that,
1- Americans may no longer question the government about anything.
2- Everything/anything George Bush says, in his capacity as President, is true. There is no evidence proving otherwise.
3- Dick Cheney is innocent, period.
4- Karl Rove is not a pedophile.
5- Orrin Hatch is not a pedophile.
6- Burning the American flag is punishable by death. However, the American flag may be worn as a shirt.
7- Iraq is now the property of the U.S. of A. Especially the oil.
8- All Iraqis are members of al-Qaida and are subject to being shot.
9- The Southern Baptist religion is now the official religion of the U.S. of A.
10- All Mormons are now Southern Baptists.
There are some other provisions of the new amendment but, they are 'classified' under the really super secret part of the Patriot Act. The Bush administration couldn't disclose what those provisions are, they are classified.
peace girl friend,
Don Nash

Hahaha.  Actually, the above doesn't seem so ridiculous considering we went to war with Iraq based on a bunch of lies.

Thanks for writing Don.

30 Media Outlets Protest Treatment in Iraq
Claim: Reporters Harassed, Tapes Confiscated

By E&P Staff  NOVEMBER 13, 2003

NEW YORK -- In two separate letters to the Pentagon, the press claims that U.S. troops are harassing journalists in Iraq and sometimes confiscating equipment, digital camera disks and videotapes.

The Associated Press Managing Editors (APME) wrote a letter of protest to Larry Di Rita, acting assistant secretary of defense for public affairs. Some soldiers' actions "appear intended to discourage journalists from covering the continued military action in Iraq," wrote APME President Stuart Wilk, also vice president/managing editor at The Dallas Morning News....

The troops are harassing journalists?  WTF.

George W. Bush Meets Moses

George W. Bush was walking through an airport last week, when he saw an old man with white hair, a long white beard, wearing a long white robe and holding a staff. He walked up to the man, who was staring at the ceiling, and "Excuse me sir, aren't you Moses?"

The man stood perfectly still and continued to stare at the ceiling, saying nothing. Again, George W. asked, a little louder this time, "Excuse me sir, aren't you Moses?" Again, the old man stared at the ceiling motionless without saying a word. George W. tried a third time, louder yet. "Excuse me sir, aren't you Moses?" Again, no movement or words from the old man. He continued to stare at the ceiling.

One of George W's aides asked him if there was a problem, and George W. said, "Either this man is deaf or extremely rude. I have asked him three times if he was Moses, and he has not answered me yet." To which the man, still staring at the ceiling finally replied to the aide, "I can hear him and yes, I am Moses, but the last time I spoke to a bush, I spent 40 years wandering in the wilderness."
