I THINK I AGREE WITH THE SOFTER SIDE OF BUSH

I believe we should NOT make it a felony for the undocumented workers already in America, especially for the families who have been here for so many years. This might spark a backlash, a revolution of sorts, to say the least. But for once, I think bush is right: a guest worker program would be a gentler approach and also ease the "sneaking across the border" crimes which often end in bloodshed and tragedy. I'm not saying Bush is doing this for the right reasons; I still believe his motives are to help corporations get cheap labor. but at least I agree with his softer approach. Frist is a self-serving person who has an eye on the presidency and is also fear-based, FF.

Another view: Clif says to be wary of games the right are trying to play with imigration. Seems the newly found Immigration problem is another diversion tactic to bend attention from the Iraqi fiasco and the CENSURE issue and the DUBAI PORTS issue.

Pay special attention to the passage "Liberals can easily and accurately be painted as opposing enforcement."

What do you think? Open thread.

From the L.A. Times today: Did you hear about the FBI spying on "peace, environmental and anti-war groups? They actually have files on "people who serve vegetarian meals to the homeless." They can't find Osama Bin Laden, but God forbid you care about the homeless, care about the land - you are a dangerous traitor to the pro-war movement. When did goodness become so perverted? When did it all turn around? Why is it patriotic to support death and destruction? We need separation of church and state. No good Christian could align himself with the party in power of today. I may regret these words, but I'm seeing a lot of greed, even in "friends" of mine. You know who you are.

  1. Ms. Cornell agrees with Dubya? I'm afraid this can only mean one thing:

    One of the seven signs of the Apocalypse...Old Testament, real wrath-of-God-type stuff...fire and brimstone coming down from the skies...rivers and seas boiling...40 years of darkness, earthquakes, volcanos...the dead rising from the grave...human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together...mass hysteria!

    It could even be as bad as having hillary as the next president.

  3. you forgot locusts FF, ok I think it would make me queasy to say I agree with Bush, so i'll say I agree with Lydia.

    I think it would be a mistake to make it a felony for illegal immigrants to be in this country, now having said that I also agree with Lydia that the Administration has an agenda with this and that they are pandering to big business that wants cheap labor.No, I dont think congress will pass a law that makes it a felony to be in America as an Immigrant, what I can see particularly if we have a Republican Majority in congress is that they use it as a source of revenue to nickel and dime the poor so they wont have to raise taxes. I could see congress making illigeal immigrants pay a fine when they are caught as well as having to pay fees to remain in the country for a specific amount of time at which point they either have to leave or pay another fee to become USA citizens, kind of like the law requiring all citizens to have passports to cross the border, so a poor family with 7 children is required to pay over $1000 if they want to take their kids to Mexico for the day.

    The Republicans are trying to pull every scam in the book to raise money so they wont have to give back their big tax break to the rich, they are going into bars and arresting people for being intoxicated to putting cameras on traffic lights to bring in revenue through mass ticketing, behold Big Brother.

    Now I know FF is going to jump all over me on this saying i'm a tax and spend liberal, which I am not, however if its a choice between raising taxes and pulling scams to bring in money then I say raise taxes. BTW before you guys cry about raising taxes think how much we are spending on liberating and installing democracy in Iraq, now that sounds all nice and flowery, but I always believed you should clean up your own backyard before you worry about cleaning up someone else's backyard, just like you should always pay your mortgage before taking a European vacation.In actuality Iraq isnt even a European vacation, its a disaster our corrupt leaders lied us into.

  12. First there are people who can't even bring themselves to call them "illegal". They HAVE broken the law of our country to come here hence they ARE illegal.

    All those with no family or children here should be rounded up and deported immediately.

    Those with family and/or children should be taken on a case by case basis....have they committed any OTHER crimes?...have they benefited our society?....have they learned our language?...are they employed?...etc.

  20. FF - what do you think of making it a felony for illegal immigrants to be in this country?
    -Ms. Cornell

    I admit I have not looked into this yet, but it does not sound good. We need secure borders and if someone comes here illegally, they need to be sent back, immediately. I don't really get the felony charge; what would this mean if the illegal is deported anyway? Would the employer also be guilty of aiding and abetting a felon?

    Now some folks have been here for many years and it would seem cruel to uproot them at this point. We would basically be penalizing them for our failure to not have been more vigilant earlier.

    I admit I have hired many illegal immigrants in front of Cosco to help me put in my front yard a couple years ago. I can tell you that they think working for minimum wage is a joke; I ended up paying them about twice that which was about $12/hour plus lunch and generous tips. (Why did I have to pay them more than minimum wage... anyone... anyone... Bueller?)

    Also appearances can be deceiving: One little scrawny guy who jumped in my truck -- I didn't really want to hire him, but he turned out to be the best worker I have ever met. I worked along side of them for a couple months and found that most of them work very hard and are good, decent people who just can't speak English. I did manage to pick up a few Spanish cuss words tho'.

    Sunday I took my nephew to Knott's Berry Farm, which isn't cheap, and the majority of the folks there appeared to be Hispanic. So I think they are doing pretty well even in an area which has one of the highest costs of living of anywhere in the country. But I digress.

    I think the borders should be made air tight; who wants to be responsible for allowing the next terrorist attack just to win the Hispanic vote? Folks who have been in the U.S. for two or more years should be allowed to stay. Less than two years, or if they have committed any crimes, send them back immediately. However, at this point I believe I would oppose any felony legislation.

  28. VOLTAIRE I actually agree with you on this statement of yours: Why do we need NEW laws? All they have to do is actually ENFORCE the ones already on the books. (and if they're not enforcing those, who thinks they'll actually enforce these new ones?)

    Here's the reason, as Mike said: CHEAP LABOR for corporations to cut costs. Same as outsourcing. It hurts the American worker and taxpayer, but it benefits the wealthy to have very cheap labor.

    By the way that audio clip is pretty scary, Voltaire.

    And I agree we need to secure out borders. But not build a fence. My girlfriend just got back from Israel and said she feels safer there than here, because they are very secure on the border issue. And they would never have such a lax port system.

    But essentially, the Hispanics are wonderful, hard-working people. And we are all one human race. I wish we'd stop looking at each other as the enemy.

  32. Mike, McCain is going for the machine that was put together for Bush to run, McCain is attempting to get the big Bush contributors called pioneers rangers and super rangers who collected contributions and bundled them into 100,000.00 and 250,000.00 amounts for Bush's run. McCain wants to be president so bad he will become that which he said he deplored and allow the people who called his adopted daughter from bangledesh, an illegitimate mixed race child he fathered. A lot of people like me who would have supported McCain in 2000 want nothing to do with the John McCain that is evolving to run in 2008. He appears to be trying to morph into bush lite, so as to get Bush's nod for the nomination. I guess he thinks that will be valuable in the primaries but it could be the kiss of death in the general election.

    10-Year U.S. Strategic Plan For Detention Camps Revives Proposals From Oliver North

    The Halliburton subsidiary KBR (formerly Brown and Root) announced on Jan. 24 that it had been awarded a $385 million contingency contract by the Department of Homeland Security to build detention camps. Two weeks later, on Feb. 6, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff announced that the Fiscal Year 2007 federal budget would allocate over $400 million to add 6,700 additional detention beds (an increase of 32 percent over 2006). This $400 million allocation is more than a four-fold increase over the FY 2006 budget, which provided only $90 million for the same purpose.

    Both the contract and the budget allocation are in partial fulfillment of an ambitious 10-year Homeland Security strategic plan, code-named ENDGAME, authorized in 2003. According to a 49-page Homeland Security document on the plan, ENDGAME expands "a mission first articulated in the Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798." Its goal is the capability to "remove all removable aliens," including "illegal economic migrants, aliens who have committed criminal acts, asylum-seekers (required to be retained by law) or potential terrorists."

    There is no question that the Bush administration is under considerable political pressure to increase the detentions of illegal immigrants, especially from across the Mexican border. Confrontations along the border are increasingly violent, often involving the drug traffic.

    But the problem of illegal immigration cannot be separated from other Bush administration policies: principally the retreat from traditional American programs designed to combat poverty in Latin America. In Florida last week, Democratic Party leader Howard Dean attacked the new federal budget for its almost 30 percent cut in development aid to Latin America and the Caribbean.

    Forgot to post an item on Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia giving the finger to his critics outside of church and saying "That's Sicilian..." and then asking the Boston paper not to print what he did. Then TP had a report that he was in Switzerland giving a speech, stating that he thinks people in Gitmo do not deserve fair trials -- because this is war and these are enemy combatants. Whether or not this is true, why is he speaking out on an issue that may come before the courts. Shouldn't he recuse himself?

  41. My friend, Maria, and her family immigrated to America from Mexico legally. To be legal they get to pay $3,000 per month (per adult - if I'm not mistaken) until their citizenship is finalized. Luckily for her and her family they have started a very successful restaurant here in the States, so they are able to afford the expensive monthly fees.

    However, I ask - where is the average emigrant going to come up with that kind of money? And yet, people wonder why there are so many of them here illegally. If it were more affordable for them to go through the legal process I'm sure we wouldn't have such a problem of having a huge amount of people here illegally. However, here's a thought to ponder...
    By making it so expensive for them to emigrate legally, maybe the government knows they will come here as illegally and therefore be willing to take ANY job they can get such as day laborers, etc. and with this new law that Bush is talking about - it would make it legal for them to pretty much work anywhere for crappy pay - right? This of course would save the corporations a lot because of the tax breaks and new found cheap labor. You definitely would still have the rich becoming richer and the poor remaining poor from the crappy pay.

    OR How about the "Gangs of New York" theory:

    What if a new law goes into effect a little while down the road that lets them gain instant citizenship...imagine how many people would be here in a flash only to find - at one table, they sign one paper basically stating: "Welcome to America - you are now a citizen of the USA," and then they get to the next table which is a mandatory enlistment to go serve in Iraq! Well, hey that's one way to build up the US troops. I'm not saying that's my idea - I'm saying that's what happened in that movie "The Gangs of New York." I can't remember the politician's name in this horribly sad blood-shedding movie but one of his ideas was to let the emigrants receive citizenship when they came to our country and not only would he win their votes, but he acquired instant soldiers out of the men too!

    Karl Rove, Deputy White House Chief of Staff and special adviser to President George W. Bush, has recently been providing information to special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald in the ongoing CIA leak investigation, sources close to the investigation say.

    According to several Pentagon sources close to Rove and others familiar with the inquiry, Bush's senior adviser tipped off Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald to information that led to the recent "discovery" of 250 pages of missing email from the office of Vice President Dick Cheney.

    Beneath the Surface on Plame Investigation: Rove and Libby in Deadly Dog Fight

    According to several Pentagon sources close to Rove and others familiar with the inquiry, Bush's senior adviser tipped off Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald to information that led to the recent "discovery" of 250 pages of missing email from the office of Vice President Dick Cheney.
    Rove has been in the crosshairs of Fitzgerald's investigation into the outing of covert CIA officer Valerie Plame Wilson for what some believe to be retaliation against her husband, former U.S. Ambassador to Gabon, Joseph Wilson. Wilson had been an ardent critic of pre-war Iraq intelligence.

    While these sources did not provide any details regarding what type of arrangements Rove's attorney Robert Luskin may have made with the special prosecutor's office, if any, they were able to provide some information regarding what Rove imparted to Fitzgerald's team. The individuals declined to go on the record out of concern for their jobs.

    According to one source close to the case, Rove is providing information on deleted emails, erased hard drives and other types of obstruction by staff and other officials in the Vice President's office. Pentagon sources close to Rove confirmed this account.

    None would name the staffers and/or officials whom Rove is providing information about. They did, however, explain that the White House computer system has "real time backup" servers and that while emails were deleted from computers, they were still retrievable from the backup system. By providing the dates and recipient information of the deleted emails, sources say, Rove was able to chart a path for Fitzgerald directly into the office of the Vice President.

    Could make for an interesting summer if Rove is trying to get Cheney removed..........

    Clif and Lydia, I just read that article, what i'm wondering is why Bush who staked his entire presidency on "KEEPING US SAFE" and fighting terrorists would suddenly take such a lax position on nation security, first he did it with our ports and now with our borders he almost appears to be saying its ok to sneak over to the US as an Illegal alien, i'm not sure if he differentiated between the ones that have been here working for years and the ones that just entered our country, but regardless I have not heard him say anything about securing our borders.

    Do you guys think because he is a lame duck president he is either trying to lure the liberals into siding with him so other republicans can paint them as weak on national security and securing our borders. Or do you think he is trying to pass the torch of being pro national security and being tough on terrorism to another republican who might run for president in 2008, or am I just reading too much into this and giving him too much credit for actually thinking and having a coherent plan.

    How about spending our limited resources domestically like for improved education or taking care of our veterans or securing our borders and ports, or on encouraging company's not to move overseas so our country's standard of living declines and we lose jobs, instead of on killing people halfway around the world to make money on oil infra structure and defending the petro dollar. How about on paying down the deficit to keep interest rates low and keep the economy growing like Clinton and Rubin did, they raised taxes just enough to balance the budget and be fiscally responsible and it ushered in the biggest economic boom since the 1920's.how about protecting our constitutional rights and personal freedoms instead of taking them away from us in the name of "the public good" or "Keeping us safe"

    It figures you guys would be for prayer in schools you dont think there should be a seperation between church and state, to you guys the Constitution is an annoying piece of paper thats gets in your way, you guys are working on repealing the Bill of rights from freedom of speech to the right to gather to protest our government to Bush's illegal spy program, you guys are just working your way up to make our Constitutional Rights null and void and turn America into a police state.

  76. News flash anon, despite what Cheney says large deficits drive up interest rates, see foreign countrys dont just GIVE US money out of the goodness of their hearts, if they think the money will be paid pack with depreciated dollars or defaulted on they will start diversifying out of bonds and other dollar denominated assets which will cause inflation to rise, which will in turn cause interest rates to rise. There's no free ride, you guys dont want to raise taxes on the rich, but the alternative is higher interest rates, higher inflation and higher unemployment. You guys want to have your cake and eat it to but your going to run our economy into the ground with your supply side BS, even Reagan and Bush Senior admited it was BS, backtracked and did the fiscally responsible thing by raising taxes enough to keep interst rates and inflation low.

    prayer in school,



    Separation of church and state....

    Thomas Jefferson:

    I have examined all the known superstitions of the world, and I do not find in our particular superstition of Christianity one redeeming feature. They are all alike founded on fables and mythology. Millions of innocent men, women and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been burnt, tortured, fined and imprisoned. What has been the effect of this coercion? To make one half the world fools and the other half hypocrites; to support roguery and error all over the earth.

    Thomas Jefferson again...

    Christianity…(has become) the most perverted system that ever shone on man. …Rogueries, absurdities and untruths were perpetrated upon the teachings of Jesus by a large band of dupes and importers led by Paul, the first great corrupter of the teaching of Jesus.



    now theres a few.What are some of yours?


    Yo Junior put down the RNC masturbation guide and read this....Actually care for the people over the corporations, require a living wage, enforce the laws like mine safety and fraud laws being violated in Iraq and have the defense department account for the over 3 trillion dollars Rumsfeld announced was not accounted for, require a medical system that does not eat over 30% in administrative fees and gives less treatment to patients each year, not raise the frees co-pays and outright costs to the troops as they are actually in the combat zone....start there....

    See if we had some sort of "national" health care system where GM and Ford were not required to uphold the contractual agreements they would not be losing money each year on the smaller cars which they can not compete with and are going to drive them bankrupt, also if Ronald Reagan and George Bush senior had not shoved their heads up their collective asses when the energy crisis was evident in the early 80's they might have followed what Brazil did where the government of Brazil invested in an alternate energy source which is allowing them to end oil imports at the same time have a GROWING manufacturing base and industrial development not a financial based economy which can collapses rather quickly (see 1929) where even them the federal government was not so far in debt that if FORIEGN governments and banks decide not to loan the money the US federal government would have to enact massive cuts in programs which would add to the extreme strains on the economy. Also the Brazilians are not attempting to create friendly governments in the middle east and the Terrorists are not attacking Brazil....seems like our addiction to oil and the war and the terrorists are really connected which would mean that we face many more problems as the availability falls prices rise and military demands to guarantee supply expand.

  117. Aw Mike, I hafta get serious? Okay I haven't studied these areas but these are my impressions:

    1) The new fed chairman raised interest rates and is expected to raise them again. Gold is up, oil is up, unemployment is low, the GDP is expected to expand nicely in 2006, hardly any economist expects a recession despite the inverted yield curve, so I think tightening the money supply is reasonable.

    2) I don't know much about McCain, except that he is popular with Democrats. I don't approve of the McCain-Feingold campaign finance act.

    Shiites Say U.S. Is Pressuring Iraqi Leader to Step Aside

    BAGHDAD, Iraq, March 28 — Senior Shiite politicians said today that the American ambassador has told Shiite officials to inform the Iraqi prime minister that President Bush does not want him to remain the country's leader in the next government.

    It is the first time the Americans have directly intervened in the furious debate over the country's top job, the politicians said, and it is inflaming tensions between the Americans and some Shiite leaders.

    The ambassador, Zalmay Khalilzad, told the head of the main Shiite political bloc at a meeting last Saturday to pass a "personal message from President Bush" on to the prime minister, Ibrahim al-Jaafari, who the Shiites insist should stay in his post for four more years, said Redha Jowad Taki, a Shiite politician and member of Parliament who was at the meeting.

    Ambassador Khalilzad said that President Bush "doesn't want, doesn't support, doesn't accept" Mr. Jaafari to be the next prime minister, according to Mr. Taki, a senior aide to Abdul-Aziz al-Hakim, the head of the Shiite bloc. It was the first "clear and direct message" from the Americans on the issue of the candidate for prime minister, Mr. Taki said.

  125. One United Nations estimate says from 113 million to 200 million women around the world are demographically "missing." Every year, from 1.5 million to 3 million women and girls lose their lives as a result of gender-based violence or neglect…

    What is happening to women and girls in many places across the globe is genocide. All the victims scream their suffering. It is not so much that the world doesn't hear them; it is that fellow human beings choose not to pay attention…

    The Islamists are engaged in reviving and spreading a brutal and retrograde body of laws. Wherever the Islamists implement Shariah, or Islamic law, women are hounded from the public arena, denied education and forced into a life of domestic slavery.

    Cultural and moral relativists sap our sense of moral outrage by claiming that human rights are a Western invention. Men who abuse women rarely fail to use the vocabulary the relativists have provided them. They claim the right to adhere to an alternative set of values - an "Asian," "African" or "Islamic" approach to human rights.

    This mind-set needs to be broken. A culture that carves the genitals of young girls, hobbles their minds and justifies their physical oppression is not equal to a culture that believes women have the same rights as men…

    A tribunal such as the court of justice in The Hague should look for the 113 million to 200 million women and girls who are missing.

    A serious international effort must urgently be made to precisely register violence against girls and women, country by country.

    We need a worldwide campaign to reform cultures that permit this kind of crime. Let's start to name them and shame them.

    Women go 'missing' by the millions by Ayaan Hirsi Ali

    Everyone is watching how “compassionate” progressives in Hollywood ignore brave folks like Ayaan Hirsi Ali and film maker Theo van Gogh. The wisdom of courageous women who stand up to vicious Islamic clerics is ignored. For example, the noble Wafa Sultan who, practically lives in Ms. Cornell’s neighborhood, is not celebrated, but treated like a leper.

    Clif thinks Christians are the real problem, not the Islamists. He finds moral equivalence between accidental civilian deaths in wartime, and intentional, systematic murder of innocent non-combatants.

    Worf believes that any recognition of the abuses of Shariah is just a silly diversion away from his all-consuming passion of demonizing President Bush (just as he will soon spend many hours demonizing President Hillary).

    Mike in Orwellian fashion, smears those who speak out against Islamic terror and oppression, as genocidal monsters.

    Exposing, the brutality of women and others suffering under Islam, is the new civil rights movement. Conservatives are taking the lead in this movement, just as they did in the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960’s. Liberals will continue to ignore or make excuses for this outrage under the guise of promoting multi-culturism.

    Only our outrage and our political pressure can lead to change.

  130. FF said "One United Nations estimate says from 113 million to 200 million women around the world are demographically "missing." Every year, from 1.5 million to 3 million women and girls lose their lives as a result of gender-based violence or neglect…

    What is happening to women and girls in many places across the globe is genocide. All the victims scream their suffering. It is not so much that the world doesn't hear them; it is that fellow human beings choose not to pay attention…

    The Islamists are engaged in reviving and spreading a brutal and retrograde body of laws. Wherever the Islamists implement Shariah, or Islamic law, women are hounded from the public arena, denied education and forced into a life of domestic slavery.

    Cultural and moral relativists sap our sense of moral outrage by claiming that human rights are a Western invention. Men who abuse women rarely fail to use the vocabulary the relativists have provided them. They claim the right to adhere to an alternative set of values - an "Asian," "African" or "Islamic" approach to human rights.

    This mind-set needs to be broken. A culture that carves the genitals of young girls, hobbles their minds and justifies their physical oppression is not equal to a culture that believes women have the same rights as men…

    A tribunal such as the court of justice in The Hague should look for the 113 million to 200 million women and girls who are missing.

    A serious international effort must urgently be made to precisely register violence against girls and women, country by country.

    We need a worldwide campaign to reform cultures that permit this kind of crime. Let's start to name them and shame them.
    Women go 'missing' by the millions by Ayaan Hirsi Ali

    Everyone is watching how “compassionate” progressives in Hollywood ignore brave folks like Ayaan Hirsi Ali and film maker Theo van Gogh. The wisdom of courageous women who stand up to vicious Islamic clerics is ignored. For example, the noble Wafa Sultan who, practically lives in Ms. Cornell’s neighborhood, is not celebrated, but treated like a leper.

    Clif thinks Christians are the real problem, not the Islamists. He finds moral equivalence between accidental civilian deaths in wartime, and intentional, systematic murder of innocent non-combatants.

    Mike said " since you seem to be clairavoyant FF and know what everyone else thinks, i'll try my hand at guessing what they think as well, clif is well aware that many islamists are a problem, however he believes that Americans/Christians are better than that and should know better, and I do not ever recall him equating accidental civilian deaths with acts of murder or terrorism."

    Worf believes that any recognition of the abuses of Shariah is just a silly diversion away from his all-consuming passion of demonizing President Bush (just as he will soon spend many hours demonizing President Hillary).

    mike said " No worf also believs that we are better than that, because there are animals on their side committing attrocities is not a get out of jail free card to mistreat them or do what ever we please. Sandra O'
    connor said it perfect when she scolded Bush saying a war is not a free pass for the president to do as he pleases."

    Mike in Orwellian fashion, smears those who speak out against Islamic terror and oppression, as genocidal monsters.

    mike said " not true FF you guys have every right to speak out against islamic terror and oppression, I do not support it either and believe it needs to be weeded out, however when you guys make statements that we need to kill their leaders judge which ones are good and evil and choose which ones will get to live and which will be exterminated then either torture the remaining ones into converting to Christianity or exterminate them, I have a big time problem with that buddy, that mindset is no different than the nazi's, see you guys hate all the nazi comparisons, but the similarities are there and they are so blatant you should be ashamed."

    Exposing, the brutality of women and others suffering under Islam, is the new civil rights movement. Conservatives are taking the lead in this movement, just as they did in the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960’s. Liberals will continue to ignore or make excuses for this outrage under the guise of promoting multi-culturism.

    Mike said "Ok FF the cause is fine how about you guys prove your sincerity by invading some islamic country guilty of oppression that doesnt have tons of oil or isnt converting from the petrodollar then maybe you clowns will have a little credibility, how about you guys stop the oppression in some poor African or Asian country that doesnt have oil, I dont see you guys making a case to disarm North Korea who allready has nuclear weapons that they have threatened more than once can hit the continental USA, oh yeah you guys dont like picking on people who can fight back particularly when there is nothing to be gained, what about Rwanda and other countries in Africa, you say Liberals and Hollywood ignore women and islamic oppression, what the hell have you guys done but invade 1 oil rich country and threaten to invade another, you guys are the one with credibility issues not us>.

    Only our outrage and our political pressure can lead to change.
    -Ayaan Hirsi Ali

  136. More lies from republican canidates....both about the war and if they should be trusted when they say anything.......

    Congressional Candidate Slams Press Coverage of Iraq--With Bogus Photo

    NEW YORK How far will critics of media coverage of the Iraq war go to prove reporters are wrongly focusing on the negative?

    One answer came this week, in a shocking if amusing episode featuring one Howard Kaloogian, a leading Republican running for the seat in Congress recently vacated by indicted Rep. Randy “Duke” Cunningham.

    He posted on the official Web site for his campaign a picture taken in “downtown Baghdad,” he said, during his visit to the city, which supposedly indicated that the media was wrong about the level of violence in the city. “We took this photo of downtown Baghdad while we were in Iraq,” he wrote. “Iraq (including Baghdad) is much more calm and stable than what many people believe it to be. But, each day the news media finds any violence occurring in the country and screams and shouts about it - in part because many journalists are opposed to the U.S. effort to fight terrorism."

    But the blogosphere quickly smelled a rat. The photo featured people who didn’t seem dressed quite right for Iraq, and signs and billboards that looked off, too. In the now-familiar pattern, the ace detective work leaped from obscure blogs to the well-known (Talking Points Memo, Eschaton, Attytood, more), and back again, as eagle-eyed experts proposed alternative locales, with Turkey a likely suspect.

    In less than a day, it was over. “Jem6X” at the popular DailyKos blog confirmed the street scene was in Istanbul, not Baghdad.

    Tipped off by someone who recognized the actual intersection in Istanbul, Jem went through online photo galleries and in a matter of minutes today found a snap taken by a “Faruk” that lined up with the “Baghdad” photo in numerous conclusive ways. Game, set, and match to the blogosphere.

  137. She knows SOOOOOOOO much (except where she even lives, and almost everything that comes out of her mouth))


    Elections officials to query GOP pundit

    Wednesday, March 29, 2006

    This time, claiming she doesn't even live here — as GOP pundit Ann Coulter has been doing on this spring's college speaking tour when she's questioned about her February election meltdown on Palm Beach — isn't going to cut it.

    Palm Beach County's elections supervisor has given the right wing's unofficial mouthpiece 30 days to explain why she voted in the wrong precinct.

    In a registered letter scheduled to be sent to her this week, Coulter is asked to "clarify certain information as to her legal residence," elections boss Arthur Anderson said.

    "We want to give her a chance," Anderson said. "She needs to tell us where she really lives."

    Or else? He could refer the case to State Attorney Barry Krischer for criminal charges, Anderson said.

    The letter, however, may be headed to the wrong house.

    The bestselling author, whose The New Ann Coulter comes out in June, owns a homestead on Seabreeze Avenue, near Worth Ave. Yet, the missive is being sent to the Indian Road home of Realtor Suzanne Frisbie. Coulter claimed in official elections documents to be living there, which Frisbie denied last month.

    "We have to send the registered letter to her address in our records," explained Charmaine Kelly, elections chief deputy. "If it comes back unsigned, we'll deal with that."

    In his official incident report released last week, poll worker Jim Whited wrote that Coulter tried to vote in the Feb. 7 town council election at Bethesda-by-the-Sea, the right place for a Seabreeze resident. Coulter left in a hurry when, Whited said, he asked her to correct the record. Later she cast her ballot at the St. Edward's precinct, where real Indian Road residents go.

    Coulter, a constitutional lawyer who relentlessly made fun of Palm Beach County voters after the botched 2000 presidential election, couldn't be reached for comment.


    Coulter without a comment, IT IS THE END OF THE WORLD>..........ROTFLMAO

  147. US Debt Clock Running Out of Room
    The clock that tracks the US debt is running out of room.

    We all know that the debt in the US is out of control - anything with a trillions of dollars is just an unimaginable number. Our Debt is more than $8 trillion. From Yahoo News:

    Sometime in the next two years, the total amount of US government borrowing is going to break through the 10-trillion-dollar mark and, lacking space for the extra digit such a figure would require, the clock is in danger of running itself into obsolescence.

    So when will this milestone be reached? According to the owners of the clock, sometime before 2009, certainly before George Bush leaves office. Every second, the clock goes up $20,000.

    The clock hasn't always worked flawlessly.

    Toward the close of the millennium, with a booming economy fuelling annual budget surpluses, the clock began to slow and finally ran into its first mechanical problem.

    "It wasn't designed to run backwards," Douglas Durst explained.

    But that little flaw didn't matter for long. Within two years of Bush's Presidency, the clock came back - with a vengeance. And soon, there will be a new one up. A bigger one.

    "We're not happy at the impact we're making with this one," [Durst] said.


    And when we were about 3.5 to 4 trillion in debt in 1992 everybody was soooo worried, now we have to change the clock that counts the debt because nobody thought to register a ten billion dollar debt level..(can we say Y2K redux in spades)

  148. Just ran accross this one from TP,

    Can you imagine if the state police said don't follow the locals unless the national guard is there?

    THE NEWS FROM BAGHDAD....Riverbend watches the news on Iraqi TV:

    I was reading the little scrolling news headlines on the bottom of the page.... Suddenly, one of them caught my attention and I sat up straight on the sofa, wondering if I had read it correctly....The line said:

    The translation:

    “The Ministry of Defense requests that civilians do not comply with the orders of the army or police on nightly patrols unless they are accompanied by coalition forces working in that area.”

    That’s how messed up the country is at this point....The situation is so bad on the security front that the top two ministries in charge of protecting Iraqi civilians cannot trust each other. The Ministry of Defense can’t even trust its own personnel, unless they are “accompanied by American coalition forces”.

    Are we making progress in Iraq that the defeatist American media routinely ignores because they've been overwhelmed by their single-minded loathing of George Bush? Read the whole thing and decide for yourself.

  149. its only going to get worse Clif, there is no end in sight for Bush's war in fact he wants to escalate the war by dealing with Iran, he's allready pawned the decision on how long the war will go on on other presidents, the debt is growing and Bush doesnt want to give up his tax cuts to the wealthy.

    What do you think will happen when a recession hits and the federal reserve is forced to cut interest rates, the dollar will fall china and Japan will dump dollar demoniated debt and inflation will soar and so will gold, silver and oil. better make sure you own some precious metals because just like the late 1970's- early 1980's they will go through the roof again. repugs keep taking jabs at Jimmy Carter, just wait till you see how Dubya goes down in history.

  155. Clif if things really get that bad like the great depression or worse, the only thing to do is a New Deal type distribution of wealth so the masses have money to spend, what causes depressions are a concentation of wealth among very few people and excessive debt and the only way to reverse it is to redistribute that wealth so people have money to spend again and the economy can start functioning normally again.
