Because his worst fears and predictions have come true, The Large Editor has locked himself in the garage and is drinking heavily.

I will really sleep more soundly knowing that homosexuals can no longer get married in Kentucky, Mississippi, the Dakotas, Michigan, Montana, Ohio, Oklahoma and Utah.

What a relief to know that we've met and overcome the threat to our nation posed by same-sex marriage.
Now, if only those states had a ballot measure to ban same-family marriages....

Hi Lisa,

The election of 2004 did produce one thing...Job security for soldiers and comedians...I'm sorry that Ohio has let us down.

I was hoping that the election (of Kerry) would put you out of business. What happened here reminds me of the Max Cleland defeat in Georgia in 2002. All the exit polls had Cleland leading, like Kerry. At work, all the Bush supporters were thinking of jumping out the windows, and all the newly registered Democratic voters, did they disappear. Goodbye America, hello Bushland.

Sadly yours, Arnie  


You can't get rid of me that easily! Even if Kerry had won, AHNC planned to be around for the long haul in the fight against the Far Right.

Hey,
    I really enjoy your page when I get a chance to read it.  Here are 
a couple of things you may want to call attention to.
    This is a very good analysis of the markets.
http://www.technicalindicatorindex.com/    He's been saying that the
markets are being manipulated but a crash is coming.  The manipulation
only puts it off and insures that it will be worse when it does happen.
He's been having trouble with the timing, one strong indicator says
it'll start on the 17th but the others are so bad he can't see it
holding off that long.
    When I saw how the markets had taken a big jump with the news of
Diebold's victory I could see how that delay could happen.  Mark the
17th on your calendar.  We can only hope that the market meltdown will
burn the shrub.
    Moving on to the "just how bad can it get?" page.  Have you seen
this one?   http://informationclearinghouse.info/article7147.htm   I
think it deserves wide dissemination given Duhbyas predilection for
getting us into wars we can't win.
    Keep up the good work,   Tom
 
Thanks, Tom.
Halliburton stock has skyrocketed. And Dubya has his finger on 
the nuclear button for  four more years.
I think I need a good cry. But no time for that! I need to check on The Large Editor.

The good news is that I'll be here for four more years at least. Bush did give me job security, after all.

America Lost?

By Mark H. Wilson

HAS AMERICA LOST HER WAY?
HAS OUR AMERICA GONE ASTRAY?
IS AMERICA OFF COURSE?
AS IT NOW RUSHES TO USE FORCE!
RAMPANT NATIONALISM AND LOSS OF HUMAN RIGHTS,
ARE THESE IDEALISTIC HEIGHTS?
THE MILITARY REIGNS SUPREME,
AS TERRORISTS AND SCAPEGOATS ARE EVERYWHERE IT WOULD SEEM?
ONLY 'REAL' MEN NEED STAY,
AS MANIPULATED MASS MEDIA LOOKS THE OTHER WAY?
SO OBSESSED WITH NATIONAL SECURITY,
RELIGION AND GOVERNMENT ARE NOW MIXED FOR NATIONAL PURITY?
CORPORATE POWER IS ABOVE ALL PROTECTED,
WHILE LABOR POWER IS REJECTED?
INTELLECTUALS AND ARTISTS ARE SO CURSED,
WHILE FOR CAPITAL PUNISHMENT THERE IS A THIRST?
WIDESPREAD CRONYISM AND CORRUPTION
ARE MASKED BY FRAUDULENT ELECTION ERUPTION?
IS IT TOO LATE?
IS OUR AMERICA BECOMING A DICTATOR STATE?

The myth about the "liberal" press,
is such a joke, it makes one guess
it's all about misinformation,
a way to fool this weary nation
