Report Criticizes US

US to Maintain Iraq
In 2006, I never thought my president would be defending any type of torture. It seems as though Tony Soprano, instead of Jesus, is Bush's favorite political philosopher.
Pope Benedict was ripped in Arab newspapers Sunday for insulting the Prophet Mohammed in public remarks. They said his words could start a world war. It's the magic you would expect whenever a German addresses a crowd from the balcony. -- Argus Hamilton, comedian

Subject: Your site
Damn fine site you have! I have e-mailed and contributed before but I want to encourage you to continue your important work. I read your site everyday, usually at work. It always brings a smile to my face and encourages me to discuss more with my students. I teach at a community college and students are not given to discussion in a history class. Sometimes though, I can get them to think about things rather than just accepting the Republican line of BS.
Thank you for your tributes to Ann Richards. She was a great American. I am a staunch Clinton supporter... because he was a great man. Clinton's tribute to Gov. Richards was moving and certainly more than the moron-in-chief had to say.
Again, thank you, thank you, thank you for making it easier to make it to 01-20-09!
Thank you for writing and contributing Charlotte. Deep curtsy.
God sure broke the mold when He created Ann Richards and Bill Clinton. What a shame.
Teaching the documented truth, no matter the subject, successfully drove my point to 95% of my past students.
That's why I believe truth via the Internet will make our world a smaller and peaceful place.
Colin Powell's Son
Former FCC Chairman Michael Powell said Friday that he had "never seen" a localism study --that a former FCC staffers says was suppressed in 2004--"did not know about it before yesterday [Sept. 14]," and "never ordered anything destroyed," according to a statement relayed by his personal assistant Friday.
Bush Clouds Issue With "Clarity"
By Madeleine Begun Kane
Clarity in torture rules?
Bush must think we're drooling fools.
What he really wants and needs
Are pardons for his lawless deeds.
Someone must tell President Bush where his heart is. [photo shown of President Bush and Laura Bush; she has hand over her heart; he has his hand over his stomach] Most people don't clutch the wrong organ, but then again, most people don't invade the wrong country. -- Bill Maher

"Picture your family dead. Just for a second. Are you picturing it? Now go vote." -Jon Stewart, summarizing President Bush's interview with NBC's Matt Lauer
Kerry says he's now prepared to kick the asses of the Swift Boat vets who
smeared him. A little late, John. Who's running your campaign? FEMA?

Colin Powell shocked a lot of people in Washington by speaking out against
President Bush's policies, saying that the world is beginning to doubt the moral
basis of our fight against terrorism. That's what I think he said -- it was hard
to hear him because he was being hustled out of the room to his cell in

Subject: Bush as a Bird
had to comment on this. i think if Bush was a bird
he'd probably be a Dodo! ;-)
I rather think Bush would make a fine turkey buzzard if he were a bird.
Bush is a vulture, feeding on the remains.
Well, one bird he isn't is the dove of peace.
I can't think of a bird Bush resembles other than the one he flips us everday.
Thank you all for writing!
