Prepping Puberty "Patriots"


Parents and teachers are complaining that the latest issue of a popular magazine for preteens amounts to little more than an early recruitment pitch for the Army.

Cobblestone magazine, which is put out by Carus Publishing in Peterborough, is aimed at children ages 9-14 and is distributed nationwide to schools and libraries. Its latest issue features a cover photo of a soldier in Iraq clutching a machine gun and articles on what it's like to go through boot camp, a rundown of the Army's "awesome arsenal"




Subject: July 4th.

The day Americans celebrate their independence from King George.

As the rhetoric from the right wing of the Republicans gets more heated every day,
I'd like you to take a few extra moments to read about the philosophies of
the liberals and the conservatives to see which you truly support
and to see why so many of us former Republicans
no longer support the Republican party.

Happy 4th of July, Alan.

Disturbing News


Plame Game Cont'


President Bush told the special prosecutor in the Plame/CIA leak case "that he directed Vice President Cheney to personally lead an effort to counter allegations made by former Ambassador Joseph C. Wilson IV, " Murray Waas writes today in his latest revelation for the National Journal.

Waas, who has broken a string of stories on this case, attributed the information to "people familiar with the president's statement."



Republican Shenanigans


Alaska Senator Ted Stevens is going to explain to us how the Internet works. Sit back and enjoy.


Stevens recently voted against an ammendment that would have regulated how much telcos can charge to move traffic, in effect maintaining "network neutrality."

In explaining his opposition to the amendment, Stevens dropped these nuggets:

They want to deliver vast amounts of information over the Internet. And again, the Internet is not something you just dump something on. It's not a truck.
It's a series of tubes.

And if you don't understand those tubes can be filled and if they are filled, when you put your message in, it gets in line and it's going to be delayed by anyone that puts into that tube enormous amounts of material, enormous amounts of material.

I just the other day got, an internet was sent by my staff at 10 o’clock in the morning on Friday and I just got it yesterday. Why?

Subject: 911



When our government perpetually lies to its citizens and prohibits
our ability to have honest elections, they have no credibility. Which
opens the door to conspiracy theories on what actually happened on
September 11, 2001 vs. our government's account.

This Web site has many links related to that topic.

Don't know if you've previously referenced this subject on your site.
If not, consider doing so. Maybe even a new "9/11 Truth" section.

The following are particularly of interest:

This link explains why the ten-second collapse of the World Trade
Center buildings (North and South towers, and Building 7) contradict the
gravitational laws of physics, and why the "pancake" theory is bunk.
Which suggests there was controlled demolition of those buildings, and
that must have been planned ahead of time, since the buildings would not
have collapsed due to the impact of the aircraft or the jet fuel
damage. I like the blimp banner at the bottom of the page "In Gravity We

This link, from a non-profit Canadian organization, presents a list
of claims by our government which are essentially impossible to have

In this video (59 minutes, 41 seconds) physics professors and
engineers provide more of the above. About 15 minutes into the video, the
focus is on Building 7, and the leaseholder, Larry Silverstein, followed
by BYU physics professor Steven Jones, then Professor David Ray Griffin
is speaking to an audience at the University of Wisconsin at Madison,
then MIT Physicist and Engineer Jeff King (very good), etc.

This Loose Change 2nd Edition video (1 hour, 22 minutes) presents
"facts" which contradict what our government claims to have happened.

This one has over 6 hours of videos for The Citizens' Commission on
9-11, held on Sept 9, 2004 in New York City, with panelists describing
why the 9-11 Commission and our government white-washed the events of
that day, with no one ever held accountable.

Thank you so much for All Hat No Cattle. I sent you some money last
year, and just did so again.

I'm not affiliated with any of the above Web sites - just a citizen
in search of the truth.

Thanks so much Sol. 


The more credible information we can gain, the better, unless you're a Bush supporter.


One does have to wonder when a president would not want an investigation into what happened on 9-11.


I believe that is why Ann Coulter is maliciously beating up on the 9-11 widows who wanted an investigation of 9-11 -- that was their crime, in Coulter 45's cross hairs eyes..


Even though the 9-11 investigation was politically half assed, the fact that the president and vice president would not put their hand on the Bible, taints all their answers.


9-11 holds the key. The actions of Bush and his "supporters" are those of trying to keep 9-11 all locked up. Which will continue to fuel more questions.


Maybe that's their strategy. 


Chaos causes confusion.






Slam Dunk Undunked


Weapons inspector David Kay gives Mr. George Tenet’s (CIA director) epitaph. “He wanted to be a player. He traded integrity for access.” When President Bush’s story of the alleged Niger uranium sale to Iraq in his State of the Union address proved false, President Bush blamed the CIA -- his signal to his pal Tenet to fall on his sword. Mr. Tenet’s reward: the Medal of Freedom. One wonders if he will ever display it with pride in his home.
