The SECRET OF THE UNIVERSE

"Those who want the government to regulate matters of the mind and spirit are like men who are so afraid of being murdered that they commit suicide to avoid assassination." - Harry S Truman

Coulter is currently facing a legal investigation for voter fraud in Palm Beach, Florida. Coulter may have lied about her address on her voter registration there. Yet, she recently announced on Hannity & Colmes that she lives in New York. As Brad Blog has noted, that may open her up to charges of tax fraud, as well.

Desiderata

Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons,
they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Be yourself.
Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love;
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment
it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.

You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful.
Strive to be happy.

Loud and Vexatious Person: Ann Coulter has a bad habit. And that habit, as mentioned before by the Rude Pundit (followed up by Raw Story), is that she appears to like to copy whole sentences from other sources without putting them in as quotes or even citing where she might have "paraphrased" from. You judge for yourself:

Here's Coulter from Chapter 1 of Godless: The massive Dickey-Lincoln Dam, a $227 million hydroelectric project proposed on upper St. John River in Maine, was halted by the discovery of the Furbish lousewort, a plant previously believed to be extinct.

  5. The National Journal is reporting that Bush told the Special Prosecutor in the CIA leak case, that he personally directed Cheney to lead an effort against Joe Wilson.

    Bush also told the Prosecutor, that he directed Cheney to disclose highly classified intelligence information that would discredit Wilson.

    Bush claims he was unaware that Cheney told Scooter Libby to leak CIA Operative Valerie Plame's name.

    A senior government official said Bush told Cheney to " Get It Out", regarding information to hurt Joe Wilson.

    What a disgraceful "Compassionate Christian Conservative" Bush has become.

  23. Bush Directed Cheney To Counter War Critic


    By Murray Waas, National Journal
    © National Journal Group Inc.
    Monday, July 3, 2006

    President Bush told the special prosecutor in the CIA leak case that he directed Vice President Dick Cheney to personally lead an effort to counter allegations made by former Ambassador Joseph C. Wilson IV that his administration had misrepresented intelligence information to make the case to go to war with Iraq, according to people familiar with the president's statement.

    Bush told prosecutors he directed Cheney to disclose classified information that would not only defend his administration but also discredit Wilson.

    Bush also told federal prosecutors during his June 24, 2004, interview in the Oval Office that he had directed Cheney, as part of that broader effort, to disclose highly classified intelligence information that would not only defend his administration but also discredit Wilson, the sources said.

  39. On Oct. 29, 2004, just four days before the U.S. presidential election, al-Qaeda leader Osama bin-Laden released a videotape denouncing George W. Bush. Some Bush supporters quickly spun the diatribe as “Osama’s endorsement of John Kerry.” But behind the walls of the CIA, analysts had concluded the opposite: that bin-Laden was trying to help Bush gain a second term.

    “Their [the CIA’s] assessments, at day’s end, are a distillate of the kind of secret, internal conversations that the American public [was] not sanctioned to hear: strategic analysis. Today’s conclusion: bin-Laden’s message was clearly designed to assist the President’s reelection.

    “At the five o’clock meeting, [deputy CIA director] John McLaughlin opened the issue with the consensus view: ‘Bin-Laden certainly did a nice favor today for the President.’”

    McLaughlin’s comment drew nods from CIA officers at the table. Jami Miscik, CIA deputy associate director for intelligence, suggested that the al-Qaeda founder may have come to Bush’s aid because bin-Laden felt threatened by the rise in Iraq of Jordanian terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi; bin-Laden might have thought his leadership would be diminished if Bush lost the White House and their “eye-to-eye struggle” ended.

    A World Without America

    By Peter Brookes

    For all the worldwide whining and bellyaching about the United States, today - America's 230th birthday - provides an opportune time for them to consider for just a moment what the world might be like without good ol' Uncle Sam.

    The picture isn't pretty. Absent U.S. leadership, diplomatic influence, military might, economic power and unprecedented generosity, life aboard planet earth would likely be pretty grim, indeed. Set aside the differences America made last century - just imagine a world where this country had vanished on Jan. 1, 2001.

    On security, the United States is the global balance of power. While it's not our preference, we are the world's "cop on the beat," providing critical stability in some of the planet's toughest neighborhoods.

    Without the U.S. "Globo-cop," rivals India and Pakistan might well find cause to unleash the dogs of war in South Asia - undoubtedly leading to history's first nuclear (weapons) exchange. Talk about Fourth of July fireworks . . .

    In Afghanistan, al Qaeda would still be an honored guest, scheming over a global caliphate stretching from Spain to Indonesia. It wouldn't be sending fighters to Iraq; instead, Osama's gang would be fighting them tooth and nail from Saudi Arabia to "Eurabia."

    In Asia, China would be the "Middle Kingdom," gobbling up democratic Taiwan and compelling pacifist Japan (reluctantly) to join the nuclear weapons club. The Koreas might fight another horrific war, resulting in millions of deaths.

    A resurgent Russia, meanwhile, would be breathing down the neck of its "near abroad" neighbors. Forget the democratic revolutions in Ukraine and Georgia, Comrade! In Europe, they'd be taking orders from Paris or Berlin - if those rivals weren't at each other's throats again.

    In Africa, Liberia would still be under Charles Taylor's sway, and Sudan would have no peace agreement.

    And what other nation could or would provide freedom of the seas for commerce, including the shipment of oil and gas - all free of charge?

    Weapons of mass destruction would be everywhere. North Korea would be brandishing a solid nuclear arsenal. Libya would not have given up its weapons, and Pakistan's prodigious proliferator, A.Q. Khan, would still be going door to door, hawking his nuclear wares.

    Also missing would be other gifts from "Uncle Sugar" - starting with 22 percent of the U.N. budget. That includes half the operations of the World Food Program, which feeds over 100 million in 81 countries.

    Gone would be 17 percent of UNICEF's costs to feed, vaccinate, educate and protect children in 157 countries - and 31 percent of the budget of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees, which assists more than 19 million refugees across the globe.

    In 2005, Washington dispensed $28 billion in foreign aid, more than double the amount of the next highest donor (Japan), contributing nearly 26 percent of all official development assistance from the large industrialized countries.

    Moreover, President Bush's five-year $15 billion commitment under the Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief is the largest commitment by a single nation toward an international health initiative - ever - working in over 100 (mostly African) countries.

    The United States is the world's economic engine. We not only have the largest economy, we spend 40 percent of the world's budget on R&D, driving mind-boggling innovation in areas like information technology, defense and medicine.

    We're the world's ATM, too, providing 17 percent of the International Monetary Fund's resources for nations in fiscal crisis, and funding 13 percent of World Bank programs that dole out billions in development assistance to needy countries.

    And what does Uncle Sam get in return? Mostly grief, especially from all the ungrateful freeloaders who benefit tremendously from the global "public goods" we so selflessly provide with our time, effort, blood and treasure. How easily - and conveniently - they forget . . . unless they need help, of course.

    But let us never forget, especially today, that despite the name-calling, the jeers, the petty jealousies, we're the envy of the world - and rightfully so.

    The fact is that no matter what anyone says: No country has given so much to so many so often - while asking for so little in return - for so little gratitude than this great country of ours. So Happy birthday, America! Stand tall and proud - you've earned it.

  48. Closes Unit Focused on Capture of bin Laden

    By MARK MAZZETTI, The New York Times

    WASHINGTON (July 4) - The Central Intelligence Agency has closed a unit that for a decade had the mission of hunting Osama bin Laden and his top lieutenants, intelligence officials confirmed Monday.

    The unit, known as Alec Station, was disbanded late last year and its analysts reassigned within the C.I.A. Counterterrorist Center, the officials said.

    The decision is a milestone for the agency, which formed the unit before Osama bin Laden became a household name and bolstered its ranks after the Sept. 11 attacks, when President Bush pledged to bring Mr. bin Laden to justice "dead or alive."


    "The efforts to find Osama bin Laden are as strong as ever," said Jennifer Millerwise Dyck, a C.I.A. spokeswoman. "This is an agile agency, and the decision was made to ensure greater reach and focus."

    The decision to close the unit was first reported Monday by National Public Radio.

    Michael Scheuer, a former senior C.I.A. official who was the first head of the unit, said the move reflected a view within the agency that Mr. bin Laden was no longer the threat he once was.

    Mr. Scheuer said that view was mistaken.

    "This will clearly denigrate our operations against Al Qaeda," he said. "These days at the agency, bin Laden and Al Qaeda appear to be treated merely as first among equals."

    In recent years, the war in Iraq has stretched the resources of the intelligence agencies and the Pentagon, generating new priorities for American officials. For instance, much of the military's counterterrorism units, like the Army's Delta Force, had been redirected from the hunt for Mr. bin Laden to the search for Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, who was killed last month in Iraq.

  50. So let me see here the desire to capture or kill Bin Laden is "STILL" as great as ever.................and yet we puled most of our resources both intelligence and military out of Afghanistan to to invade Iraq.......we disbanded the unit whose sole purpose was to hunt for Osama.....and our Illusttrious president who portrays him self as a warrior or crusader against terrorism and who has staked and defined his entire presidency on being a war president fighting terorism who said he wanted Osama "Dead or alive" as he was the one who attacked us on 9/11 more recently said "Osama, I dont think much about him"


    Yeah looks like the Bush Administrations desire to capture or kill Bin Laden is as great as ever translation= there never was a desire to catch or kill him they are allies they are in league, Bush trots out Bin Laden as the Bogey man when ever his popularity goes down to instill fear in people, 9/11 was the great enabler for this Tyrant and his band of Nazi's. It was a win win for both Bush and Bin Laden.

  51. Hell bin Laden is at Crawford and Al Zawahri is hiding in dead eye's secret undisclosed location...both making videos for bush's support..so why waste money for finding them...after all is said and done it is really about the money with this crop of blithering fooles....

    ReplyDelete
  52. Given the official response is that there are still plenty of officials responsible to tracking bin Laden and that the terrorist remains a "high priority."

    I’m curious, if a President Kerry had allowed the CIA to disband the intelligence unit tasked with hunting bin Laden, would conservatives just shrug their shoulders?

    Or would Rush drop the viagra and Ann stop throwing up to screech like banshees again...while the reichwingnut machine call Kerry a traitor...where are they now?

    ReplyDelete
  53. Zarqawi's wife said the Bush administration, made a deal with
    Al-Qaeda to trade Zarqawi's location for not pursuing Bin Laden.

    Now the unit in charge of finding Bin Laden has been closed down.

    Looks like the "Trade" of a lifetime is turning into the "Treason of the Century".

  54. I thought the same thing Larry, Bush and his thugs should think twice before the word treason comes out of their mouth, all they have to do if they want to see a traitor is look in the mirror, how many times have these guys lied and committed treason now......and those are only the times we know about and are aware of.

    BTW how much do you guys wanna bet Troll Tex, FF and Anonymous are goosestepping around the flag and chanting and ranting about their patriotism and bravery..................these chicken hawks are obsesseed with following the letter of the law instead of the spirit............to them the symbol is more important and held in more reverance than what it is meant to symbolize, hence the flag a mere piece of cloth is deemed more important and more sacred than the freedom it is meant to symbolize.

    What is The Neo Con solution/response to a nuclear North Korea, "lets just ignore them or nuke em, cause they dont have any oil or natural gas that we want" right troll tex.......
    On our day of Independence North Korea fires 6 missiles and where is George Bush.........probably calling the press traitors when he's not using them to leak classified info to discredit his opponents, or maybe clearing brush or barbacuing now that he's back from graceland.......... although he could be plotting where to move his illegal prisons to, and how to circumvent the Geneva Convention and imprison people without fair trial and hold them indefinately and torture them despite the Supreme Court putting the little dictator in his place.......but he probably leaves that for smarter people than him although with his administration thats not saying much right Troll Tex??????

    ReplyDelete
  61. see Volt why do you think North Korea is tweaking our nose and talking smack........I'll tell you why because the whole world knows our military is over extended because of Bush's illegal corrupt invasion of Iraq and he sees iran talking tough to Bush and Chavez talking smack and tweaking Bush's nose and he knows now is his opportunity to act up and do as he pleases, particularly since China is secretly egging them on because they know Bush is an arrogant fool who will squander and waste our Military might fighting senseless unwinable wars.

    Its just like the Bully that cant beat up everyone in the room, the people finally realized the bully has bit off more than he can chew and are talking smack when he isnt looking and throwing food at the bully when he isnt looking, and eventually more and more people become emboldened once others act out and get away with it.

    But as for the north Korean missles...it ain't as bad as some make it...the missle blew up less than a minute from take off...and thery do not have guidence figured out at all..the other five they fired were basically SCUD missles based weapons they got from the USSR...and those are no better than the ones Saddam had in 1991....

    The story is being Hyped by the US government..much more than the Northg Koreans actual abilities....just as they are doing in Iran...and they did with Iraq

  65. South Korea says North's long-range missile failed



    SEOUL, July 5 — North Korea's firing of missiles on Wednesday was "unwise" and the launch of its long-range Taepodong-2 missile ended in failure, a South Korean security official said.


    http://famulus.msnbc.com/famulusintl/reuters07-04-183318.asp?reg=pacrim&vts=7420061924

    Thus they can't actually launch the missle...and that is with out a proven guidence system. Otherwise this missle is no better than the scuds they already have it just flies further with no control...however the scuds flew further today.....and the North Koreans DO NOT have the capability to build a nuke that could survive a missle launch...with out that ability...the have a big rocket and nothing to put on it....

  66. Well, when the trolls get back from vacation, they can look back through my earlier posts,(I also said it in TP in the a few weeks ago when the republicans were saying it could hit California.

    I told Sexion over there it could never reach California, because they are not calculating air miles.

    Its around 5700 miles from LA to Seoul, which means the missle at best, would land somewhere about 500 to 1000 miles out to sea.

    But I also told him it would most likely, end up in the Sea of Japan.

    From what I've heard, thats just where one of them landed, lol.

    Too bad the trolls are never around when you're right.

If the reichwingnut chicken hawks had spent time in uniform they would have learned some things like ...weapons systems that are complex are not easily made and unreliable, they also would learn that it takes more than the raw componants of big rocket and nuclear bomb to make a nuclear missle capabile of delivbery over 6000 miles away...but they would prefer getting their truth from other higher paid chicken-hawks who do not know either....

    Course, last thing Bush wants is a ground war with North Korea, and bombing is not going to work. Too much acreage to cover.

    I'm worried about this deadline he set for Iran. I think he wants to attack them, but thank god the generals over at the Pentagon are telling him it would be stupid.

    It could easily spell a catasrophe for our troops in Iraq.

    Like General Pace said, what if 100,000 Iranian volunteers cross over to fight?

    Bush can't run a war against a country loike Iraq, that had very little weapons, and a worthless and corrupt army, how could he fight Korea and/or China.

    Bush would rather attack Syria next so he could get their oil and Haliburton could rape Billions of more US Tax Dollars to supposedly rebuild it.

  80. Okay, so ... North Korea test fires four missiles, one of which was the long-range Taepodong-2. The Taepodong-2 failed about thirty seconds after lift-off.

    Press reports frequently claim that the Taepodong-2 is capable of hitting the United States. The fine print is important, though. As the Times notes in their dispatch today: the Taepodong-2 "is thought to be potentially capable of reaching United States territory in Alaska, if North Korea perfects the technology. But that ability has never been demonstrated in a test. (emphasis added)"

    It's a serious issue that bears watching. But also note that UN Ambassador John Bolton is the lead-milker of this story.

  85. larry said "Bush would rather attack Syria next so he could get their oil and Haliburton could rape Billions of more US Tax Dollars to supposedly rebuild it."

    Larry they definately want to topple the unfriendly regimes in iran and Iraq to open those countries up to American Oil Companies not just Halliburton, that havent been welcome there in decades, see most of the major American oil companies like Exxon Mobil and all the others have declining or stagnating reserves if American oil companies can just help the National oil companies develop their Own reserves they will make Billions but if these companies privatize and our American companies are able to buy portions of them and sigificantly add to and increase their reserves they could possibly make trillions and shareholder value will go up exponentially with the price of oil rising like it is.

    See The Bush Administration is in bed with the oil companies and they want to topple those USA hostile governments to gain access to either developing or buying those huge relatively undeveloped oil and natural gas reserves in Iran and Iraq, hence the push to invade both countries, The Bush Administration wants to enrich both themselves and their Oil Industry cronnies who are one of their largest campaign contributors and lobbyists.

  89. Wouldn’t you like to know where Dick Cheney puts his money? Then you’d know whether his “deficits don’t matter” claim is just baloney or not.

    Well, as it turns out, Kiplinger Magazine ran an article based on Cheney’s financial disclosure statement and, sure enough, found out that the VP is lying to the American people for the umpteenth time. Deficits do matter and Cheney has invested his money accordingly.

    http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article13851.htm

    The article is called “Cheney’s betting on bad news” and provides an account of where Cheney has socked away more than $25 million. While the figures may be estimates, the investments are not. According to Tom Blackburn of the Palm Beach Post, Cheney has invested heavily in “a fund that specializes in short-term municipal bonds, a tax-exempt money market fund and an inflation protected securities fund. The first two hold up if interest rates rise with inflation. The third is protected against inflation.”

    Cheney has dumped another (estimated) $10 to $25 million in a European bond fund which tells us that he is counting on a steadily weakening dollar. So, while working class Americans are loosing ground to inflation and rising energy costs, Darth Cheney will be enhancing his wealth in “Old Europe”. As Blackburn sagely notes, “Not all ‘bad news’ is bad for everybody.”

    And there is more....

  90. This should put to rest once and for all the foolish notion that the “Bush Economic Plan” is anything more than a scam aimed at looting the public till. The whole deal is intended to shift the nation's wealth from one class to another. It’s also clear that Bush-Cheney couldn’t have carried this off without the tacit approval of the thieves at the Federal Reserve who engineered the low-interest rate boondoggle to put the American people to sleep while they picked their pockets.

    Reasonable people can dispute that Bush is “intentionally” skewering the dollar with his lavish tax cuts, but how does that explain Cheney’s portfolio?

    It doesn’t. And, one thing we can say with metaphysical certainty is that the miserly Cheney would never plunk his money into an investment that wasn’t a sure thing. If Cheney is counting on the dollar tanking and interest rates going up, then, by Gawd, that’s what’ll happen.

    The Bush-Cheney team has racked up another $3 trillion in debt in just 6 years. The US national debt now stands at $8.4 trillion dollars while the trade deficit has ballooned to $800 billion nearly 7% of GDP.

    This is lunacy. No country, however powerful, can maintain these staggering numbers. The country is in hock up to its neck and has to borrow $2.5 billion per day just to stay above water. Presently, the Fed is expanding the money supply and buying back its own treasuries to hide the hemorrhaging from the public. Its utter madness.

    Last month the trade deficit climbed to $70 billion. More importantly, foreign central banks only purchased a meager $47 billion in treasuries to shore up our ravenous appetite for cheap junk from China.

  91. Do the math! They're not investing in America anymore. They are decreasing their stockpiles of dollars. We’re sinking fast and Cheney and his pals are manning the lifeboats while the public is diverted with gay marriage amendments and “American Celebrity”.

    The American manufacturing sector has been hollowed out by cutthroat corporations who’ve abandoned their country to make a fast-buck in China or Mexico. The $3 trillion housing (equity) bubble is quickly loosing air while the anemic dollar continues to sag. All the signs indicate that the economy is slowing at the same time that energy prices continue to rise.

    This is the onset of stagflation; the dreaded combo of a slowing economy and inflation.

    Did Americans really think they'd be spared the same type of economic colonization that has been applied throughout the developing world under the rubric of "neoliberalism"?

    Well, think again. The American economy is barrel-rolling towards earth and there are only enough parachutes for Cheney and the gang.

    The country has lost 3 million jobs from outsourcing since Bush took office; more than 200,000 of those are the high-paying, high-tech jobs that are the life's-blood of every economy.

    Consider this from the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) June edition of Foreign Affairs, the Bible of globalists and plutocrats:

  92. “Between 2000 and 2003 alone, foreign firms built 60,000manufacturing plants in China. European chemical companies, Japanese carmakers, and US industrial conglomerates are all building factories in China to supply export markets around the world. Similarly, banks, insurance companies, professional-service firms, and IT companies are building R&D and service centers in India to support employees, customers, and production worldwide.” (“The Globally integrated Enterprise” Samuel Palmisano, Foreign Affairs page 130)

    “60,000manufacturing plants” in 3 years?!?

    “Banks, insurance companies, professional-service firms, and IT companies”?

    No job is safe. American elites and corporate tycoons are loading the boats and heading for foreign shores. The only thing they’re leaving behind is the insurmountable debt that will be shackled to our children into perpetuity and the carefully arranged levers of a modern police-surveillance state.

    Welcome to Bush’s 21st Century gulag; third world luxury in a Guantanamo-type setting.

    Take another look at Cheney’s investment strategy; it tells the whole ugly story. Interest rates are going up, the middle class is going down, and the poor dollar is headed for the dumpster. The country is not simply teetering on the brink of financial collapse; it is being thrust headfirst by the blackguards in office and their satrapies at Federal Reserve.

    Bush is putting cutting edge Nuclear weaponary in the one place we don’t want it right now. Close to Bin Laden, close to Al Quaida.

    As we know, Bin Laden is most likely residing comfortably in Kashmir, the disputed region between India and Pakistan. A place where Al Quaida flourishes and the American Military is not allowed.

    We were already concerned that Bin Laden would get bored, and go into Pakistan, raising a army of loyal fans as he goes, until he overthrows Musharif and then of course, takes control of his Nukes.

    Thats the REAL doomsday scenario that we are really facing.

    But now, thanks to GW, Bin Laden can also choose to go into India, where he also has many loyal followers, and also possibly seize the Nukes.

    And who knows, maybe they’ll just sell em to him.

  101. Clif those were great posts, another thing that lends credence to what you are saying is the fact that the Federal Reserve stopped reporting M3, now why would a guy who says he believes in transparency and openess just up and stop reporting M3, the only reason is he does not want the public to know he is increasing the money supply to help fund our deficit and defend the dollar.

    I asked myself last week why Bernanke only raised the the Fed Funds Rate 1/4 point instead of the half point the market seemed to want to conclude that the rate increase were over or real close to being over, and the conclusion I came to is Bernanke is buying time, he's defending the dollar with his 1/4 point increases into perpetuity, see him and Greenspan both know that with the real level of inflation thats occuring (not the phony inflation number being reported due to hedonics) our creditors namely Japan and China who are financing our deficit would dump the dollar real quick if they were not receiving steadily increasing compensation in the form of rising interest rates. But like Cheney Bernanke also knows that when he stops raising interest rates look out below for the dollar. see thats why M3 is not being reported when the dollar starts to drop and China and Japan dump their dollar denominated assets the Fed will have to print lots and lots of money to cover our debts and they dont want the public to be aware of how fast the money supply is increasing to finance those debts because there would be a panic and economic collapse, but without reporting M3 the coming inflation then collapse will be harder to see for the masses and the elite will be able to get out in time and ammas fortunes.

  117. Three years into an occupation of Iraq replete with so-called milestones, turning points and individual events hailed as “sea changes” that would “break the back” of the insurgency, a different type of incident received an intense, if ephemeral, amount of attention. A local human rights worker and aspiring journalist in the western Iraqi town of Haditha filmed the aftermath of the massacre of 24 Iraqi civilians. The video made its way to an Iraqi working for Time magazine, and the story was finally publicized months later. The Haditha massacre was compared to the Vietnam War’s My Lai massacre, and like the well-publicized and embarrassing Abu Ghraib scandal two years earlier, the attention it received made it seem as if it were a horrible aberration perpetrated by a few bad apples who might have overreacted to the stress they endured as occupiers.

    he bogged us down in a war in Iraq which is slowly spinning out of control more and more each day....

    His economic policies have driven the federal government to the brink of insolvency..aka Germany in the early 1920's....

    His foreign policy is simply broken..and he has no idea what to do about it except stay the course...IE same stupid discredited ideas getting more and more people killed and injured....

    He has simply been incompetent about catching Bin Laden...and actually securing the country..especially the borders and ports...

    He is pushing for the same in Iran..a country with three times the population...a much larger military and no sanctions that have held the Iranians back for over a decade before we invade....only the military brass of the pentagon has stopped bush from using nuclear weapons in a "attack" mode..which he claims is necessary if the Iranians do not do as we tell them to....

    The military is pushed to the limit both inm troops and equipment...in some ways in worse shape than it was after Vietnam.....

    And with the irresponsible fiscal policies there is no funds available to revamp the military equipment worn out or destroyed in Iraq...

    The worst is still to come ...

    The trade deficits and foreign debt hangs like a guillotine over the American economy with much outstanding debt which if called will cause Bernanke to print dollars like Germany did in the 1920 which will have the same effect...except oil was not priced in deutschmarks, and if the feds print money to cover the debt oil will no longer be priced in dollars either....but the prices for the US citizen will rise as inflation heats up to keep up with the money supply

    No wonder dead eye has invested the way he has...he is helping steer the economy into the coming train wreck we all are going to be caught in....

Today North Korea fired 6 misiles, over the past few years they have claimed and threatened that they have nuclear capabilities and can even strike the Contiental USA, and what does the Bush Administration do....ignore them and focus on invading all the oil rich Countries they dont like in the Middle East, North Korea allready has nuclear weapons but the Bush Administration and our resident Neo Con Troll Tex claim that Iran a country that does not have nuclear capabilty and is years and possibly decades away from aquiring long range inter continental nuclear capabilities is "OUR GRAVEST THREAT".

    What is The Neo Con solution/response to a nuclear North Korea, "lets just ignore them or nuke em, cause they dont have any oil or natural gas that we want" right troll tex.......
    On our day of Independence North Korea fires 6 missiles and where is George Bush.........probably calling the press traitors when he's not using them to leak classified info to discredit his opponents, or maybe clearing brush or barbacuing now that he's back from graceland.......... although he could be plotting where to move his illegal prisons to, and how to circumvent the Geneva Convention and imprison people without fair trial and hold them indefinately and torture them despite the Supreme Court putting the little dictator in his place.......but he probably leaves that for smarter people than him although with his administration thats not saying much right Troll Tex??????

    Mike said: "He will go down in history as the worst president and the biggest failure we have EVER had. He is an utter failure both as a president and as a person."

    They said the same thing about Truman during his term as well. History remembers him quite well.

    What will histiry remember Clinton for? A blow job. Sad, pathetic Libs.

    Mike, you are ranting incoherently. What is your point?

    N. Korea is a failed society, and Bush will not negotiate with nuclear blackmailers. Clinton wanted two party talks, Bush wants six party talks, which is a far, far better appoach.

    Who gave them light-water reactor technology? Clonton.

  142. Your the incoherent partisan Troll Tex, how much is the Bush Admin paying you to defend them??

    Thats rich that Bush wont negotiate with nuclear blackmailers, when he is one himself, him and Cheney have implied and threatened they may nuke Iran if Iran doesnt do what THEY want, maybe simple simon's like you dont consider that nuclear blackmail Troll Tex, but most people with a brain and capable of independent thought would.

    And as for your holier than thou obsession with Clinton's blow job, thats just sour grapes for you repugs because the only way little trolls like you and Rove and Dead Eye Dick can get one is to walk into a brothel with a $500 bill on your forehead.Answer me this smart guy which is worse getting a blow job or lying us into a senseless war where over 100,000 have died. THATS TREASONOUS foolish texan.

  145. And as for your failed societies Troll Tex, if that really is the case arent those the ones we need to be the most carefull of, but Bush seems inclined to label any society that doesnt bow to him an axis of evil or failed society, your evil emperor wants to start WW3 to hold onto his power and he makes that clearer every day.

  146. yeah she mentioned it to illustrate your hippocrissy on many levels, the first being you guys claim it was harmful to children yet You publicized it endlessly the second being lying a country into war and having the blood of 100,000 on your hands is far worse than a little semen on a dress......at least for most decent people who are smart enough to see which is worse, but again Troll Tex you failed to answer my question as to which is worse.........................maybe you really arent smart enough to follow the thread and pay attention but still you really should seek treatment for your ADHD.....maybe it will help a little TROLL TEX.

    Worf, is that your mantra? I mean everyday, there's something in the news that makes you predict the fall of Bush, and you are ALWAYS wrong.


    You haven't proved anything "wrong" yet mouth.

    When I say something like "I don't see how Bush can stay in office IF this is proven right", you automaticlly turn it into me predicting hearings will begin tomorrow.


    Then, after defining my argument for me, you can say, see, you're wrong.


    Your butt buddy Dolt does the same thing.

    As long as you're making my arguments for me, you might as well talk to yourself.

    Clintons started all this by GIVING away our hard-earned missile and reactor technology to China and they gave it to Korea, and Korea gave it to Iran.


    Are you kidding me?

    You want to talk about giving stuff away?

    How about Bush trading cutting edge nuclear weaponry and technology to India, in exchange for a boatload of mangos?

    They should’ve given him a shirt with the deal to.

  161. See Troll Tex your either from the Ann Coulter style of debate where you think playing dumb like you dont understand our points and then either ignoring points you cant refute or reconstructing our arguments the way you want them to be so you can easily refute them is "CUTE", you think that enrages liberals when all it really shows is you are intellectually dishonest and afraid of honest debate because you arent smart enough.

    You either resort to intellectual dishonesty or slander and personal attacks.......unless you really are that stupid, and your too dumb too actually understand our arguments.
