Says Posse Comitatus is archaic. Kinda like the First, Second and Fifth Amendments that he suspended in Louisiana a couple of weeks ago. Three down, seven to go.
I hope all you small-gubmnt voters are happy as pigs in shit with your boy. Remember when all you thought you had to fear was gun-grabbing libruls and invisible black UN helicopters?
Law schools who refuse military recruiters lose federal funding. What could be more fascist than that?
If recruiters had just signed up all those brave chickenhawks at Freedom Walk for Jesus and Country Music Day, this wouldn't be necessary.
What about Falwell's brownshirt training camp, Liberty U? Do recruiters even go there? And all the other private KKK high schools and colleges? They all love their king and his war. Let them go fight and leave the rest of us alone.
He survived a nazi concentration camp in his native Hungary. He came to America and joined the Army that had liberated him. He fought in the Korean War until captured by the Chinese. He used what he learned in the concentration camp as "basic training" for 2 1/2 years as a POW. While a POW, he saved many of his buddies' lives.
To King Goerge who's still AWOL from the cushest gig the military ever had: Fuck you. You're not worthy to present the Medal of Honor to this guy. You insult the service of real veterans who actually served their country.
To all those brave chickenhawks who got their bright, shiny new white t-shirts at least weekend's Freedom Walk: Fuck you. This old guy's a patriot and a hero. You Freedom Walkers are sissies, cowards and dripping hypocrites.

Doesn't CNN in the past week sound a lot more like a resluglicon cheerleader than it used to? Here's why.
TIMEWARNER, CNN's parent company, hires DeLay's chief-of-staff!
Jebya's boy busted. Drunk, resisting arrest.
Okay, we'll start with your salary, then Cheney's, then Chertoff's. Now, about that $168 million your war costs us every day...Or is it $186 million? Whichever, the sooner we stop wasting there, the sooner we can start giving to your friends here as they overcharge us for rebuilding.
King Goerge says he will cut "unnecessary spending" to rebuild NOLA.
"Hoovervilles" sprang up everywhere during The Great Depression.
It's not what Japan did ten years ago.
In Kobe, Japan, where 150,000 people were placed in temporary housing after the 1995 earthquake, officials found that the most crucial factor for evacuees' mental health and economic success was being close to their old homes and jobs, said Bob Olshansky, a professor of urban and regional planning at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champagne.
Other important factors were keeping old neighbors together and routinely surveying the displaced residents so that adjustments could be made in funding to meet their evolving needs, Olshansky said. Planners also learned from their mistakes: They initially worried too much about how much housing they needed without paying enough attention to the housing type or location.
The transition proved hard in Kobe. The 48,000 units were built to last two years, but 5,000 homes were still occupied four years later, Olshansky said. Some people never moved back to their old homes and remain in the units, which have now been converted to public housing.
Record high economy, record low unemployment, record budget surplus, no wars...damn, it's a good thing they got rid of that sumbitch before he cured cancer.
Katrina proves a neocon/theofascist gubmnt is calamitous for America.
Molly Ivins is always right about King Goerge. She's known him his whole adult life and has been up his butt most of that time.
And yet last night, no more than an hour after the President departed, the lights went out. The entire area was plunged into total darkness again, to audible groans. It's enough to make some of the folks here who witnessed it... jump to certain conclusions.
It is impossible to over-emphasize the extent to which this area is under government occupation, and portions of it under government-enforced lockdown. Police cars rule the streets. They (along with Humvees, ambulances, fire apparatus, FEMA trucks and all official-looking SUVs) are generally not stopped at checkpoints and roadblocks. All other vehicles are subject to long lines and snap judgments and must PROVE they have vital business inside the vast roped-off regions here. If we did not have the services of an off-duty law enforcement officer, we could not do our jobs in the course of a work day and get back in time to put together the broadcast and get on the air. As we are about to do.

Kompassionate Konservative Kristians use Pledge (and school prayer, and everything else they can think of) to identify, bully people unlike themselves.
Jehovah's Witnesses are Americans, too, and as such are entitled to equal protection under law and the Constitution. And everybody who doesn't like our Constitutional democracy can move to Argentina with all the other confederate and fascist holdouts.
While King Goerge visited and slept in undamaged French Quarter, Cindy and Mike helped, you know, people.
Read the list. Send what you can.
The Clarion-Ledger has obtained a copy of an internal e-mail the U.S. Department of Justice sent out this week to various U.S. attorneys' offices: "Has your district defended any cases on behalf of the (U.S.) Army Corps of Engineers against claims brought by environmental groups seeking to block or otherwise impede the Corps work on the levees protecting New Orleans? If so, please describe the case and the outcome of the litigation."
Facts are stupid things. History is even worse.
King Goerge took money from levees and spent it on noble cause.
Environazis must have brainwashed him into it like that woman says her boyfriend did on that armored car robbery 12 years ago.
Remember all that taxpayer money that went for Cipro during the fake anthrax hysteria? Same thing.

One more down, tens of thousands to go.
The Massachusetts Republican Party has accepted the resignation of its vice chairman, Lawrence P. Novak, after his arrest Tuesday in a money-laundering case, in which he is accused of trying to obtain his fee from a jailed client through illicit drug profits.
The only good resluglicon is an incarcerated resluglicon. They all belong in jail.
Whenever you're unfortunate enough to encounter a resluglicon--any resluglicon--remember that he's a liar, a criminal, a chickenhawk, and a fascist. And if he starts talking religion, he's a theofascist. Never trust a resluglicon. Ever.
Why I wish Paula Zahn was single and less than six feet tall.
Right before King Goerge's speech: "Come on, Suzanne, does the White House really think one speech is going to change everybody's mind about the president?"
Note to the rest of the world: My country is deeply ashamed of this man. And remember, fewer than half of us voted for him either time. So don't blame us all for this miserable excuse of a hominid. The majority of us tried to stop him, but got robbed by Diebold.
To no one's surprise, it's all party-line talking points.
Get your Bullshit Protector (see below post) in time.
More details of what is actually going to happen, tonight's speech be damned. He only tells lies.
Watch the video. Watch Hannity try feebly to distort both what she says and history itself.
Diebold insider speaks out.
Diebold management threatened employees with dismissal if they ratted out the conspiracy. This is a horrible chapter in the history of a corrupt administration's efforts to destroy our Constitutional democracy in favor of a fascist theocracy.
National Geographic special explores the real Nativity Scene.
Meanwhile, King Goerge's approval is in "freefall." Actually, "death spiral" is more accurate. But we're still stuck with the dangerous clown and his crime family for 3 1/2 more long years. They'll steal billions in that time, especially after Katrina.
Their family values are so strong, they fired a woman for rescuing her siblings.
As the increasingly funny Wanda Sykes said on Leno last night, "I don't blame Bush. I blame the American people. Ya'll knew the man was slow when you voted for him. Don't blame the blind man for wrecking the car when you're the one gave him the keys."
Will tell more lies about...well, everything since that's all he knows how to do, in hopes of distracting us from his abject failures at...well, everything since he's a total nincompoop. Maybe he'll need to go pee in the middle of his liefest, and never come back.

Screw the National Guard and everybody else involved in unconstitutional censoring of the real Katrina storyAnd don't give me that tired, vr-wc line about "common decency."
Pictures of dead bodies in NOLA are horrible, so if you don't want to see them, don't look at them. But America must know the truth, not just what King Goerge wants us to know, about the price the city paid for his and his cronies' incompetence. May the smell of what CSIs call "decomp" follow King Goerge around for the rest of his days.
They'd better hope DHS and FEMA don't get called in.
Theofascists hate the Constitution because it provides equality and protection for everyone, and Kompassionate Konservative Kristians like Bauer think the rest of us shouldn't be allowed to live here. Well, to him and his ilk I say, if you don't like a Constitutional America, you can move to Argentina with all the other confederate and fascist holdouts.
Read a good essay.
Reuters shutterbug catches King Goerge writing to Condo during UN meeting, "I think I may need a bathroom break?" Is he asking her if she knows whether he needs to go potty? Or is he asking her to stage a diversion? The next part seems to start with, "Is this possible..."
Do not trust these people. They're still resluglicons.
Chertoff delayed federal response to Katrina.
Did King Goerge want 9-11 to happen so he could do exactly what he's done for his PNAC friends?

God sent Katrina to rid America of incompetent, corrupt resluglicons
If they can do it, I can do it.
They now get to stay in uniform, freeing up more chickenhawks for cheerleading.
During WWII, women were encouraged to go to work in defense plants to free a man for service in that war. Now gays are in uniform so chickenhawks don't have to be. Rosie the Riveter is rolling in her grave. (My mother was a "Rosie." She built P-47s.)
Thanks, Kompassionate Konservative Kristians, for the past 30 years of telling people the Earth is 6000 years old. And all the rest.
As the director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency stepped down yesterday, government documents surfaced showing that vital resources, such as buses and environmental health specialists, weren't deployed to the Gulf region for several days, even after federal officials seized control of Hurricane Katrina relief efforts.
In addition, FEMA's official requests, known as tasking assignments and used by the agency to demand help from other government agencies, show that it first asked the Department of Transportation to look for buses to help evacuate the more than 20,000 people who had taken refuge at the Superdome in New Orleans at 1:45 a.m. on Aug. 31. At the time, it only asked for 455 buses and 300 ambulances for the enormous task. Almost 18 hours later, it canceled the request for the ambulances because it turned out, as one FEMA employee put it, "the DOT doesn't do ambulances."
FEMA ended up modifying the number of buses it thought it needed to get the job done, until it settled on a final request of 1,355 buses at 8:05 p.m. on Sept. 3. The buses, though, trickled into New Orleans, with only a dozen or so arriving on the first day.
"I noticed that every email to a FEMA person bounced back this week. They need a better internet provider during disasters!!" one frustrated Department of Health official wrote to colleagues last Thursday.
11. The rise of theofascism. (And, consequently, the rise of theo-science.)
Says he takes responsibility for his own and his entire adminstration's miserable performance before, during and after Katrina. Okay, where's your letter of resignation?
Typical behavior from King Goerge's cronies: Screw up badly, then make excuses and blame others.
Everything to do with DeptHomeSec, "national security" is a scam
New information surrounding relief efforts by the American Red Cross in New Orleans raises questions about whether the organization provided adequate relief and whether funds are actually being directed to Katrina victims, RAW STORY has found.
Previous investigations have shown that the Red Cross mishandled its 9/11 fund, attempting to divert more than half into a "war fund" before Congress intervened, and moved $10 million from a fund in 1989 for earthquake victims towards other uses. Allegations of similar holdbacks following the Oklahoma City bombing and several later disasters, coupled with the discovery that the Red Cross, mandated by its Code of Conduct to remain independent of government, is officially part of the Bush Administration's national security apparatus, led RAW STORY to dig deeply into the Red Cross and its recent disaster relief efforts.
Why did the Red Cross not enter New Orleans?
While many were outraged that the Red Cross failed to enter New Orleans, unsafe conditions and reports of shootings and lootings may have informed the decision. The Red Cross is not chartered to conduct search and rescue operations.
We "will not put [our] own workers in harm's way," Red Cross spokesperson Renita Hosler told RAW STORY.
Hosler explained that the Red Cross was "at the table" with "Emergency Management" numerous times while conditions deteriorated in New Orleans and that a decision was reached that if the group set up shop within the city, it might encourage others to come back, creating a secondary crisis.
Hosler confirmed that authorities turned down repeated offers by the Red Cross to enter New Orleans with supplies. New Orleans, she asserted, was considered too unsafe for the Red Cross to enter.
The Emergency Management Team, Hosler says, was comprised of city, state, and federal officials.
The Associated Press reported Sept. 8 that Col. Jay Mayeaux, deputy director of the Louisiana Office of Homeland Security asked the Red Cross not to enter the city at least for the first 24 hours after the storm in order to have to time to "set up a feeding station to feed a large number of people." By Saturday, there was a large-scale evacuation under way.
New Orleans artist Daniel Finnigan told RAW STORY there were helicopters everywhere, mostly military.
"That's what confused us," Finnigan said, "there was such a huge presence of military in the air but nothing on the ground."
Amid reports that thousands were trapped in the Superdome and the Convention Center, the Red Cross did not distribute or drop supplies to either location. The group's explanation that its presence would keep people from evacuating and encourage others to come into the city mirrors a National Guard decision not to drop food supplies, saying they did not want to spark riots.
The Red Cross is still not distributing supplies in the city.
That's enough. He's only been a judge for two years, so he's clearly unqualified for any seat on the Supreme Court, much less Chief Justice. And if he refuses to answer questions and release documents showing his track record, he's hiding something we're entitled to know about.
Send this bozo home today. He's just another incompetent chimpanista fascist. Haven't we learned enough about the kinds of people King Goerge wants around him? They're all liars, criminals and incompetent fascists. No more.
Internal DHS and FEMA documents reveal yet another chapter in the darkest period of our history.
Will tell us how good a job he's doing. We'd rather see it than hear it.
Download your Bullshit Protector before 8 pm CDT Thursday.
When will this worthless state just break off and drift on down to the Bermuda Triangle where it so richly belongs?
What if, instead of constantly spending money on Iraq-specific technology, we just, you know, stopped fighting in Iraq? After all, they didn't attack us, we attacked them. And by "we" I mean King Goerge and his chickenhawk warmongers, the ones who used my money to do conquer another country for its oil, and are now charging me $3/gal of gas for the priviledge of paying for their war. That's pretty terrible management of my (unwilling) investment.
"All options on table" as King Goerge rattles sabres at Syria.
They're not his private sabres. They're ours. We paid for them. We weild them in time of war, something he couldn't do. And neither can any of his friends or their children.
If King Goerge wants to start another war to show us he still has big cojones, he can send his worthless daughters in first.
Christians and even Kompassionate Konservative Kristians finally getting sick of King Goerge's war of lies for oil and hegemony in the Middle EastI'm not the only christian who's sick and tired of being lumped into the same category as the KKK by the uninformed media. We and they are not cut from the same cloth. We are christians and patriots who love our constitutional democracy. They are theofascists who want to turn our country into a feudal theocracy. We couldn't be more different. All we share is oxygen and DNA. And sometimes I'm not sure about the DNA part.
Richard Cizik, vice president of governmental affairs for the National Association of Evangelicals, which did not publicly endorse the war but has been a Bush backer, seemed surprised Friday when he was told 68 percent of evangelicals still thought invading Iraq was the right thing to do.
"It's probably attributable to general support of the president," Cizik said.
The people at the top are supposed to know. That's their job. If they "don't know" something, they should. Not only does this "didn't know" defense NOT excuse incompetence, it points it out. It aggravates it with the lies.
If a person in a position of responsibility "doesn't know" something, that person should be fired for not knowing, then tarred and feathered for lying to us and insulting our intelligence.
King Goerge is desperate. His mythical mandate is gone forever, even among those who knew it never existed. His power base is rotting from the inside as America discovers how corrupt and incompetent this administration truly is. Actually, these are revelations for just under half of America; most of us already knew these things were true.
He already suspended the First, Second and Fifth Amendments last week. CNN got a court order preventing the censorship of news out of NOLA, but King Goerge is still doing it. The worst part is, he's using the Army to enforce his unconstitutional orders to censor news.
Soldiers must be reclaimed. They must be made to understand their first allegiance is to the Constitution, not this or any president, especially when he issues unlawful or, as now, unconstitutional orders. When he does these things, it is their lawful duty to ignore such orders.
They still can't remember that their oath reads, "...to protect and defend the fucking Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic." It says NOTHING about defending the president's image.
King Goerge IS the domestic enemy they're supposed to protect the Constitution from!
Soldiers threaten to take cameras from reporters and "kick (them) out of the state."
Outside one house on Kentucky Street, a member of the Army 82nd Airborne Division summoned a reporter and photographer standing nearby and told them that if they took pictures or wrote a story about the body recovery process, he would take away their press credentials and kick them out of the state.
"No photos. No stories," said the man, wearing camouflage fatigues and a red beret.
It's time we said it out loud: Such behavior is treasonous. Encouraging such behavior is treasonous. This is one of the most egregious results of the vast, right-wing conspiracy's hatespeech propaganda campaigns on the past 35 years. How did we get to the point that soldiers hate reporters above all others, and trample on the Bill of Rights that they swore to defend in order to protect a bunch of corrupt warmongers who send them to die for the oil companies?

King Goerge wants us to drink shit
Bush Plan Would Allow More Sewage in Nation's Fresh Water
A Bush Administration proposal to routinely allow partially
treated sewage into America's waterways could face a roadblock in Congress next week, when the House of Representatives is expected to vote next week on the Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA) budget. Included is the opportunity to support the
Save Our Water From Sewage Act.
The bipartisan amendment to stop increased sewage dumping would
block EPA from finalizing a proposal that allows an increase in
the use of "blending", a process where partially treated waste
is dumped into lakes, rivers and streams.
Currently under the Clean Water Act, partially treated sewage
may be released only in a dire emergency, such as a hurricane.
Otherwise the process known as blending is illegal, and waste
treatment must be carried out in three phases -- first screening
for solids in the waste, second phase removing most of the
viruses, parasites and other pollutants, and the third phase
treating sewage for bacteria.
If the EPA proposal is finalized, anytime it rains or during
snow melts, sewage treatment facilities would be allowed to
forgo the second phase of water treatment, which neutralizes
viruses and pathogens in the wastewater and aids in the
effectiveness of the third phase of treatment.
If you were on this jury, which would you believe was more likely:
1. One man started a fight with six?
2. Six men started a fight with one?

Read his Top 25 lies on the road to war.
They were required to register and show up. Why doesn't King Goerge release the figures and prove how many actually showed up for his "Gulf War II is about 9-11" party?)
I am so sick and tired of country music--and country "singers"--being portrayed as inherently patriotic. Clint Black and Tobey Keith should be in uniform if they're so damned patriotic.
Chickenhawks. Lots of chickenhawks.
No fire-breathing patriots in the walk said they intended to put on a uniform...other than that while t-shirt.
Look at where King Goerge sent Katrina survivors. (See archives; pay attention) Blue state voters from LA now live in red states all over the country. But not in large enough numbers to affect things in their new...I won't say homes. What's the word...concentration camps, that's it.
You remember the one about "dodging a bullet," right? Exactly one media outlet--I won't call them a newspaper--used "dodged a bullet" on their front page...the WorldNetDaily. Every other newspaper in the country led with "Disaster" and similar things. Click headline to compare what King Goerge claims he saw (I thought he didn't read newspapers) and what the rest of the nation saw. And even if he did see only their front page, surely by now he realizes he should never rely on them for anything else ever again.
He's only been a judge for two years.
He is exactly the kind of inactivist judge resluglicon criminals, racists and fascists dream about. He will smile at unconstitutional laws and say, "Not my job to write laws. Legislators do that." What an asshole he is.
Why should King Goerge go to all that trouble of finding someone actually qualified for the job when it's so much easier just to nominate a friendly fascist, regardless of his experience...which doesn't exist? They don't care about qualifications. They go out of their way to find people who are in no way qualified for their jobs...from King Goerge on down. If very many people in his administration were actually qualified for their jobs, King Goerge would look even worse, if that's possible.
Incompetents, liars, criminals, fascists. That's today's GOP.
Now, about covering that war in Iraq that was supposed to punish Saddam for his role in 9-11 and for having all those WMDs...
And where were Army recruiters? None reported seen bothering all these chickenhawks. They were all at the Astrodome. True story.
Mainstream America stayed away from this farce.
Participants, many of them government employees and their families, were each given a white T-shirt emblazoned with the words Freedom Walk on the front and the name of sponsors on the back. Those included the defence contractor Lockheed Martin, the right-wing daily Washington Times, McDonald's and the US Army magazine Stars and Stripes.
(Clint Black? Where were Charlie Daniels, Tobey Keith and the other fire-breathing chickenhawks of the country music industry?)
"To remember the lessons of 9-11, support the troops who are fighting the people who didn't attack us"16 Saudis attacked us, no Iraqis did.
The walkers also said their support for the troops was inextricably linked to support for the war.
"What I've never really understood is how someone could say they support the troops but they don't support the war. . . . Because the troops want to win the war," said Debra Burlingame, who walked in memory of her brother Charles F. Burlingame III -- pilot of the hijacked plane that struck the Pentagon -- and to say thank you to the troops wherever they serve.
Such logic baffles freedom walker Mimi Evans from Hyannis, Mass., mother of a Marine serving in Iraq. She said she supported him by walking for freedom while wearing a white T-shirt that said in red and blue letters: "No more lies, no more lives."
A good Marine must follow orders and assume the war policy is correct, she said, while a responsible civilian can question the policy. She wanted to interrupt the checker pieces, break some of the links that were being made on the Freedom Walk. "I'm sorry, there's absolutely no connection between my freedom to be an American and what our troops are doing in Iraq," she said. "There's no connection between what our military is doing and 9/11."

For longer than I care to remember, I've been saying that the best thing that could happen to America would be for the resluglicons to have their way, unchecked, for eight years. In the short run, it'd damage the country badly. But in the long run, it would be good. America and the rest of the world would see once and for all who the resluglicons really are and what they really mean to do. Then we could permanently reject reslugliconism as a way of life.
I was wrong. It only took four years. But now we truly do know everything we need to know about resluglicons: They're liars, incompetents, chickenhawks, warmongers, criminals and fascists.
Next year's mid-term election is going to be a massacre. Resluglicons will be replaced in droves, hopefully by people like Howard Dean, Wes Clark and Paul Hackett. Not them, but people like them.
The scary question is, will the American people remember in two years after the mid-terms what they understand so clearly today? I think so. King Goerge still has three more years to keep screwing up this country. It's the one thing we can count on him to do.
