Will a Dean candidacy be good or bad for Democrats?
Alameda Times-Star, CA - 12-30-03

...The games officially begin with the New Year and in this volatile world of security alerts and nuclear proliferation and a dozen other foreign and domestic crises to face, anything could happen and probably will. But it is hard to ignore the concerns of Democratic gray beards that the worm the early bird gets in this case might be poisonous to their party.

A Clark-Clinton ticket would be the fastest way to clean up the Bush Inc. mess.

Wes and Bill are two brilliant minds who've been to the School of Been There, Done That Successfully--plus there is nothing left to investigate Clinton for.

Three minority extremist groups - the militant fundamentalist Islamists exemplified at the far edge by Al Qaeda, certain activist elements among America's reborn Christians and neoconservatives, and the most inflexible hard-line Zionists from Israel - have emerged as dangerously destabilizing actors in world politics.

Mr. Personal Unaccountability

"Today Rush Limbaugh blamed his legal troubles on 'the Democrats.' You have to understand how Rush thinks — see Bill Clinton was a real pain in the neck, so he got some drugs for the pain, then he got addicted, then he started buying the drugs illegally — so really it's all Clinton's fault." —Jay Leno

It sounds as though Rush may have fallen off the wagon.

I think Mr. Levitas in right on the money when he says:

"The government has a severe case of tunnel vision when it comes to domestic terrorism. I have no doubt whatsoever that had Krar and his compatriots been Arab-Americans or linked to some violent Islamic fundamentalist group, we would have heard from John Ashcroft himself."




The terror threat at home, often overlooked

As the media focus on international terror, a Texan pleads guilty to possessing a weapon of mass destruction.

By Kris Axtman | Staff writer of The Christian Science Monitor 12-29-03

HOUSTON – It began as a misdelivered envelope and developed into the most extensive domestic terrorism investigation since the Oklahoma City bombing.
Last month, an east Texas man pleaded guilty to possession of a weapon of mass destruction. Inside the home and storage facilities of William Krar, investigators found a sodium-cyanide bomb capable of killing thousands, more than a hundred explosives, half a million rounds of ammunition, dozens of illegal weapons, and a mound of white-supremacist and antigovernment literature....

Thanks for the link. This William Krar had more wmds than Saddam.
