Today's cartoon was inspired by the French. Not only did the French give us the Statue of Liberty but they gave us the word liberty by introducing it to the English language before the English did.

Main Entry: lib·er·ty
Pronunciation: 'li-b&r-tE
Function: noun
Inflected Form(s): plural -ties
Etymology: Middle English, from Middle French liberté, from Latin libertat-, libertas, from liber free -- more at LIBERAL
Date: 14th century


Interesting that the word liberal is derived from the word liberty.  Geez, ever notice how the right wing has tried to change the definition of liberal?<sarcasm   No wonder they are so confused.

High Noon in the Desert

by Walter Brasch

   The capture of Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, believed to be the man who created the 9/11 plot, proves a couple of things.
First, it shows that the CIA and FBI, with local assistance and if given enough time, manpower, and budget—including a $25 million reward—can track down and locate anyone.
   More important, it emphasizes that it’s not Iraq that the U.S. should be trying to obliterate from the earth. Mohammad, director of operations for al-Qaeda, is a Kuwaiti-Pakistani citizen who was captured near Islamabad, the Pakistani capital. CLICK HERE

"Perhaps one way will be, if we use military force, in the post-Saddam Iraq the U.N. will definitely need to have a role. And that way it can begin to get its legs, legs of responsibility back." —George W. Bush, the Azores, Portugal, March 16, 2003

This quote is proof that he bought his way through college, his business career and eventually the presidency. Gawd, we're f---ed.


"I am not worried about the deficit. It is big enough to take care of itself." —Ronald Reagan 1985

Actually, Bill Clinton took care of it.  Which Democrat will have to clean up after W's huge deficit?
