Houston Chronicle, United States - 11-3-06
"The whole point of the program was to provide free vaccinations when people were there.

"I think it's important to note that nobody hates the troops more than decorated war hero John Kerry. We're all very, very lucky that we have draft-dodgers like George Bush and Dick Cheney to point that out to us." --Jimmy Kimmel

Exposing corruption in Iraq earns pink slip
Insert in a bill by GOP lawmakers shutters an office that embarrassed the administration...And tucked away in a huge military authorization bill that President Bush signed two weeks ago is what some of Bowen's supporters believe is his reward for repeatedly embarrassing the administration: a pink slip, in the form of an obscure provision terminating the federal oversight agency that he heads, the Office of the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction.



Disturbing News


It's Official - The World Hates Bush



The United States is seen as a threat to world peace by its closest neighbors and allies, with Britons saying President George W. Bush poses a greater danger than North Korea's Kim Jong-il, a survey found on Friday.


...A majority of Canadians and Mexicans agreed, with 62 percent of those polled in Canada and 57 percent in Mexico saying their neighbor's policy had made the world more dangerous.

As for Israel, just 25 percent of people asked said Bush had made the world safer...



Please don't try to play Twister with John Kerry's commentary. It is a game that neither our troops nor our nation can afford.- Zing!







Subject: Democrats and War


Hi Lisa,
Just a thought. Bush has been saying that the Democrats they cannot win the war on terror. Correct me if I'm wrong. During WW1 after we entered the war under a Democrat and defeated the Germans in less than 18 months.In WW2 we destoryed a million plus man army and stopped the atrosities of the Nazi's, plus we destroyed another million plus man army totally hell bent on our demise in the pacific. This we did in four years under another Democrat. Bush cannot beat a non army in 5 years!



Shhhhhh, you may be shipped to GITMO for saying things like that!



Republican Shenanigans


Ozone Is Greek to Bush


The Bush administration is seeking world permission to produce thousand of tons of a pesticide that an international treaty banned nearly two years ago, even though U.S. companies already have assembled huge stockpiles of the chemical.

Methyl bromide has been used for decades by farmers to help grow plump, sweet strawberries, robust peppers and other crops, but it also depletes the Earth's protective ozone. The United States and other countries signed a 1987 treaty promising to end its use by 2005.





Dick Cheney said on Fox News last night that in the past two weeks Republican candidates have been picking up speed. That tends to happen when you're going downhill really fast!-- Jay Leno


Rock-The-Voter News



"Senator Kerry does not support our troops. If he had won the election, there wouldn't be any troops left in Iraq. President Bush, on the other hand, has given our troops an opportunity to fight without end. That's creating jobs. In fact, the president's policies helped create 104 more job openings last month. Now who's stupid, Senator?" --Stephen Colbert

Subject: Response


Hi Lisa,
Is it just me, or did other people also notice that John Kerry's remark got a much faster response than Hurricane Katrina?



Good point Anthony! Just proves what are Republican priorities.



Biz/Tech News


"Oil prices have now dropped below $58 a barrel, which if my math is correct, means the election is less than a week away. Better fill up by Tuesday." --Jay Leno




Marked Man?


As if the Abu Ghraib prisoner abuse scandal weren't bad enough for America's image in the Middle East, now it may appear to much of the world that one of the men implicated in the scandal is returning to the scene of the crime.

The U.S. military tells TIME that one of the soldiers convicted for his role in Abu Ghraib, having served his sentence, has just been sent back to serve in Iraq


Bush-Prison-Torture News



Today Vice President Dick Cheney denied he endorsed waterboarding to get terrorists to talk. He prefers to call it 'bobbing for the truth.' -- Jay Leno



"Iraq is the foreign policy version of Katrina, and this president cannot handle the reality. This is not an election anymore, it's an intervention. This man is so in denial, we need to intervene." --Conservative commentator Andrew Sullivan


Go-F***-Yourself News


"We turned the clocks back over the weekend, which is great news for the Republicans. They got to stay in power for an extra hour." --Jay Leno

This image provided by NASA Thursday Nov. 2, 2006 is a recent photo from the Cassini spacecraft showing the mighty planet Saturn, and if you look very closely between its wing-like rings, upper left, reveals a faint pinprick of light. That tiny dot is Earth bustling with life as we know it. The image is the second ever taken of our world from deep space. The first was captured by the Voyager spacecraft in 1990. This marvelous panoramic view was created by combining a total of 165 images taken by the Cassini wide-angle camera over nearly three hours on Sept. 15, 2006. The mosaic images were acquired as the spacecraft drifted in the darkness of Saturn's shadow for about 12 hours, allowing a multitude of unique observations of the microscopic particles that compose Saturn's faint rings.
