Congress to outsource goerge's job

Congress today announced that the office of President of the United States of America will be outsourced to India as of January 15, 2006.

The move is being made to save the President's $400,000 yearly salary, and also a record $521 billion in deficit expenditures and related overhead the office has incurred during the last 5 years.

"We believe this is a wise move financially. The cost savings should be significant," stated Congressman Thomas Reynolds (R-WA). Reynolds, with the aid of the Government Accounting Office, has studied outsourcing of American jobs extensively. "We cannot expect to remain competitive on the world stage with the current level of cash outlay," Reynolds noted.

Mr. Bush was informed by email this morning of his termination.
Preparations for the job move have been underway for sometime. Gurvinder Singh of Indus Teleservices, Mumbai, India, will be assuming the office of President as of January 1st.

Mr. Singh was born in the United States while his Indian parents were vacationing at Niagara Falls, thus making him eligible for the position. He will receive a salary of $320 (USD) a month but with no health coverage or other benefits.

It is believed that Mr. Singh will be able to handle his job
responsibilities without support staff. Due to the time difference
between the US and India, he will be working primarily at night, when few offices of the US Government will be open. "Working nights will allow me to keep my day job at the American Express call center," stated Mr. Singh in an exclusive interview. "I am excited about this position. I always hoped I would be President someday."

A Congressional spokesperson noted that while Mr. Singh may not be fully aware of all the issues involved in the office of President, this should not be a problem because Bush was not familiar with the issues either. Mr. Singh will rely upon a script tree that will enable him to respond effectively to most topics of concern. Using these canned responses, he can address common concerns without having to understand the underlying issues at all.

"We know these scripting tools work," stated the spokesperson.
"President Bush has used them successfully for years." Mr. Singh may have problems with the Texas drawl, but lately Bush has abandoned the "down home" persona in his effort to appear intelligent and on top of the Katrina situation.

Bush will receive health coverage, expenses, and salary until his final day of employment. Following a two-week waiting period, he will be eligible for $240 a week unemployment for 13 weeks. Unfortunately he will not be eligible for Medicaid, as his unemployment benefits will exceed the allowed limit.

Mr. Bush has been provided the outplacement services of Manpower, Inc. to help him write a resume and prepare for his upcoming job transition. According to Manpower, Mr. Bush may have difficulties in securing a new position due to limited practical work experience. A Greeter position at Wal-Mart was suggested due to Bush's extensive experience shaking hands and phony smile.

Another possibility is Bush's re-enlistment in the Texas Air National Guard. His prior records are conspicuously vague but should he choose this option, he would likely be stationed in Waco, TX for a month, before being sent to Iraq, a country he has visited. "I've been there, I know all about Iraq," stated Mr. Bush, who gained invaluable knowledge of the country in a visit to the Baghdad Airport's terminal and gift shop.

Sources in Baghdad and Falluja say Mr. Bush would receive a warm
reception from local Iraqis. They have asked to be provided with details of his arrival so that they might arrange an appropriate welcome.

Orwell could sue goerge for plagiarism

Lawyers for the estate of George Orwell have announced their intention to sue President Bush for plagiarism.

"We have long believed that this administration has stolen much of its policy from Mr. Orwell's writings," said attorney Will Bilyalotz. "Expressly, '1984' and 'Animal Farm.' In some cases, like the illegal surveillance of its own citizens, this administration has lifted the passages word for word from '1984.' Just changing the year doesn't protect the president from copyright laws."

White House spokesman Scott McClellan, while refusing to comment directly because of the "ongoing investigation," reminded reporters that the Patriot Act had given the president the power to suspend copyright laws and, anyway, "No one can own words."

Legal experts believe proving copyright infringement will not be easy. "Even if he is guilty, the president's propensity for adapting Mr. Orwell's '1984' newspeak is so effortless, as if he made up the words himself," said law professor Sue Yu Atdropohat. "Illegal borrowing of words or even fictional characters from published works has a high threshold of proof. The producers of the film 'Being There' have had their lawsuit against the Bush campaign tied up in court since 2000. After all, one man's outright theft of ideas is another man's malapropos."

"Personally, I think this so-called intelligentsia is just jealous," said Newt Gingrich. "Orwell could have only dreamed of great terms like 'defeatist' and 'evil-doer.'"

Bilyalotz differs. "The president's comments like, 'This notion that the United States is getting ready to attack Iran is simply ridiculous. And having said that, all options are on the table,' is plain and simple, Mr. Orwell's 'doublethink' (the power to hold two completely contradictory beliefs in one's mind simultaneously and accept both of them)."

The president has regularly pointed out that he will do whatever it takes to defeat terrorism, and that those who want to hamstring his ability to steal written material are only aiding the enemy. "9/11 has made us look at our plagiarism in a different way," said the president. "As long as I am president or king, the American people expect me to do everything in my power under our laws and Constitution to protect them and their civil liberties. And if that takes dissolving the Constitution, then so be it."

"It was Mr. Orwell in '1984' who first came up with 'Victory Mansions' and industrial-grade 'Victory Gin.' Now the president calls his book, a 'National Strategy for Victory in Iraq.' The president doesn't go 10 seconds without using the word 'victory.' One doesn't have to be a math whiz to put two and two together. Our greatest concern is not that the president uses Mr. Orwell's words," Bilyalotz said, "but that he's actually using '1984' as a governmental guidebook, and I'm afraid the president hasn't read how it ends."

In his weekly radio address, Bush said the "Spy on US" program has been reviewed regularly by the nation's top legal authorities and Fox talk-show hosts, targeting only those people with "a clear link to these terrorist networks, which include Al-Jazeera and CNN."

The feudal theocracy we might get if we don't vote the bastards out of business this year

The Magna Carta lasted a mere three months. Our Constitution faces a similar extinction this very election year.

What does the Constitution really say about privacy?

A lot. And it's all crystal clear.

If krixtain patriots say we have no right to privacy, then it follows that anyone who says otherwise is a gay, communist child-molester who hates America and wants the terists to win. Including, apparently, the founders who wrote the damn Constitution and Bill of Rights in the first place.

The right to privacy

The Constitution does not specifically mention a right to privacy. However, Supreme Court decisions over the years have established that the right to privacy is a basic human right, and as such is protected by virtue of the 9th Amendment. The right to privacy has come to the public's attention via several controversial Supreme Court rulings, including several dealing with contraception (the Griswold and Eisenstadt cases), interracial marriage (the Loving case), and abortion (the well-known Roe v. Wade case). In addition, it is said that a right to privacy is inherent in many of the amendments in the Bill of Rights, such as the 3rd, the 4th's search and seizure limits, and the 5th's self- incrimination limit.

And don't forget that the 3rd Amendment says no soldiers may be quartered in private residences against the owner's will. If this isn't a Constitutional protection of privacy and private property, nothing is.

http://www.grazianoforcongress.com/ammendments.html

In the parallel universe of Kancervatron, the privacy protections so clearly noted in the Constitution mean we have no right to privacy

Which is why goerge wants John Roberts and now Scalito on the Extreme Court.

Remember the good, ol' days when only libruls wanted Big Brother, and all kancervatives were for "states rights?"

Illinois officials say they want to stop companies from selling private telephone records without the consent of consumers, and they want to know how brokers got those records in the first place.

But even as Gov. Rod Blagojevich and Atty. Gen. Lisa Madigan work to prevent privacy invasion at the state level, some fear Congress may take steps to weaken related identity theft laws already on the books in Illinois and elsewhere. Consumer advocates are preparing to join the fight on both fronts.

"It's important that customers be able to properly protect themselves," said Brian Imus, senior policy advocate with the Illinois Public Interest Research Group. "Our privacy shouldn't be for sale."

In Congress, watchdogs are fighting a measure that they say would gut state laws requiring companies to notify consumers whenever their information security has been breached. As currently crafted, they contend, the proposal would require notification only when there's a good chance personal information has fallen into the wrong hands.

Yet many Jews are nervous about evangelicals' intentions. In recent weeks, leaders of three of the nation's largest Jewish groups -- the Anti-Defamation League, the American Jewish Committee and the Union for Reform Judaism -- have decried what they see as a mounting threat to the separation of church and state from evangelicals emboldened by the belief that they have an ally in the White House and an opportunity to shift the Supreme Court.

"Make no mistake: We are facing an emerging Christian right leadership that intends to 'Christianize' all aspects of American life, from the halls of government to the libraries, to the movies, to recording studios, to the playing fields and locker rooms . . . from the military to SpongeBob SquarePants," the ADL's national director, Abraham H. Foxman, said in a Nov. 3 speech.

Question: Does God ever tell you any of the things these theofascist bullies claim He tells them? I have to say, I've never heard a single thing remotely resembling what these guys, and there fellow abominations like Dobson and Perkins, say are true Words of God. In point of fact, everything I've ever heard is pretty much the polar opposite of what they talk about.

"Just Us Sunday III" is another in a series of theofascist pep rallies designed to undermine the Constitution

Judges. Not the Book of Judges in the Bible, but "activist judges" who uphold the law and the Constitution. Those are their real targets.

Judges ram the Constitution down their necks over everything from forced school prayer to evolution to school vouchers. The theofascists despise the rule of law and the Constitution, and mean to replace it with the rule of theofascist mob mentality.

The theofascists want "the gubmnt" our of our lives so they can move in. The gubmnt shouldn't and mustn't tell us how to live. Only theofascist "ministers" should do that. But before they can run our lives properly, they must get rid of those "activist judges" who enforce that librul Constitution.

I disagree: Goerge's illegal spying on law-abiding citizens hasn't affected the mythical "war on terr" because it doesn't exist

There is no war on terr because there are no terists out to kill us because they hate our freedoms. If there were, they'd have attacked us again. Bridges, schools and football games would have gone up in smoke all over the country. But they haven't.

If there were terists, and if goerge was at war with them, he'd have gone after Osama, who was and is a terist leader, and terist cells everywhere, beginning in Afghanistan. But he didn't. He went after Saddam, who wasn't a terist leader, and who was Osama's rival, if not enemy in the truest sense of the word. The war in Afghanistan was never more than a sideshow to take media time away from goerge's real plan: The theft of an entire country--Iraq.

Besides, 9-11 wasn't an attack on America. It included America, but it was an attack on the west for defiling Osama's native Saudi Arabia. Goerge and his propagandists conflated this with their long-held desire to steal Iraq's oil into a holy war so that goerge could re-invent himself as an omnipotent wartime leader. As such, he could use his strong minions in the vast, right-wing conspiracy propaganda machine as well as the weenies and whores in the worthlesscorporatemedia to get out his message, and demonize all those who opposed him.

Once he became a wartime leader, the machine that's been in the works for years, if not decades, roared into action. Industrialists have been gradually taking over America since the turn of the 20th century. In 1933, they tried to replace FDR with a Mussolini-style fascist dictator. During WWII, Henry Ford and both of goerge's grandfathers helped Hitler in his war against the evils of communism and "the Jewish question," which to them were pretty much the same threat to their dream of a fascist world. God only knows how many hundreds of billions of "warbuck" dollars--nazi, American and British--lie in Swiss banks, churning out interest used to further the industrialists' goals.

The attacks of 9-11 at the very least allowed PNAC and its footsoldiers in the GOP to take bold, giant steps they've waited to take for decades. Goerge launched the utterly unnecessary Goof War II so as to create a war atmosphere which "changed everything"--because they said so. And so did their media minions, over and over, until few question the legitimacy of such statements anymore.

So, no, goerge's illegal spying on law-abiding citizens has not weakened the war on terr because there barely is a war on terr to begin with. The war is on the Constitution and democracy itself. The GOP's goal is to turn America into a feucal theocracy, pure and simple.

And if you don't believe that yet, you haven't been paying attention. So, start.

They want a program to predict who will be a terist. Reminds me of when goerge invaded Iraq because of what they might do. (Hmmm, my neighbor is a jerk, and is a hunter. I should shoot him first because he might shoot me.)

His history is also the history of the kind of abuse of governmental power goerge wants to revive

Frank Wilkinson, a Los Angeles housing official who lost his job in the Red Scare of the early 1950's and later became one of the last two people jailed for refusing to tell the House Un-American Activities Committee whether he was a Communist, died Monday in Los Angeles. He was 91.

......................

On Jan. 14, 1975, when the committee (HUAC) was finally abolished, Representative Robert F. Drinan, Democrat of Massachusetts, paid tribute to Mr. Wilkinson, saying, "No account of the demise of the House Un-American Activities Committee would be complete without a notation of the extraordinary work done by the National Committee Against Repressive Legislation."

But Mr. Wilkinson was not finished with the federal government. When he discovered, in 1986, that the Federal Bureau of Investigation had been compiling files on him, he filed a Freedom of Information Act request for their release.

He was sent 4,500 documents. But he sued for more, and the next year the F.B.I. released an additional 30,000 documents, and then 70,000 two years later. Eventually, there were 132,000 documents covering 38 years of surveillance, including detailed reports of Mr. Wilkinson's travel arrangements and speaking schedules, and vague and mysterious accusations of an assassination attempt against Mr. Wilkinson in 1964.

A federal judge ordered the F.B.I. to stop spying on Mr. Wilkinson and to never do it again.

TOTALLY UNPREDICTABLE: Secret Pentagon geniuses discover that body armor saves lives

That might explain why it's been worn since World War I. (By German machine gun crews in the trenches. During WWII, US bomber crews wore so-called "flak vests," but only small numbers of foot soldiers had them then, and not until very late in the war. By the Korean War, flak vests were universally issued to front line troops. Also in Vietnam.)

A secret Pentagon study has found that at least 80 percent of the marines who have been killed in Iraq from wounds to their upper body could have survived if they had extra body armor. That armor has been available since 2003 but until recently the Pentagon has largely declined to supply it to troops despite calls from the field for additional protection, according to military officials.

Goerge's illegal spying on law-abiding citizens is not the issue

Another chapter from the "What Are You Gonna Do About It?" department.

It's this simple: Goerge started an unnecessary war so he could assume--and expand--unlimited and unquestionable powers as a wartime leader. His junta is the end result of years, decades even, of planning by the people who want to turn America into a feudal theocracy.
The question isn't, "Why did goerge not just do what FISA allowed him to legally?" Because that's not the issue. The issue is his strengthening his position as dictator, something that simply couldn't have happened without the fear, hysteria and mindless nationalism, and righteous indignation that are only possible in a holy war.
The 9-11 attacks didn't target America. They targeted the World Trade Center and included America in the attacks. But the statement included all nations doing business in the WTC. Yes, Osama was maddest at the US for defiling his native Saudi Arabia. But the attacks were not limited to strictly American targets or citizens.
Yet the hysteria of the day never was calmed by the facts, and America allowed goerge and his junta to turn 9-11 into a war declared by "terr" on America specifically.
But "terr" and al-qaeda weren't worthy targets of opportunity, and oil-rich Iraq was. So goerge and his junta melded the two together, and still do, although there is no evidence--actual evidence--linking 9-11 to Iraq in any way.
We may never know who was really behind the 9-11 attacks, just as we may never know who really killed JFK. But we do know that goerge took advantage of the attacks to create and pursue a war that didn't have to happen simply so he could re-invent himself as a wartime president. Only as a wartime president--and with a Congress partially populated by spineless Democrats--could goerge assume, expand and now invent so much power.
So the issue isn't having or not having FISA warrants before or after each incident of what we now know as illegal eavesdropping. This is just one more expansion of goerge's powers beyond, and in exception to, those in the Constitution.
The issue is that he's doing everything possible to appoint himself fuehrer-for-life, and to destroy all who oppose him on any level. He's gotten caught--again--but, so what? Who's going to make him change his ways? Democrats in Congress? They're all corporate whores or sissies. The worthlesscorporatemedia? Same thing. No one can do a thing about goerge's crimes until Congress is back in the hands of people who think the Constitution is still in effect.
Goerge knows this, which is why the Diebold vote-rigging machines are in control of nearly every voting precinct in America. He's already stolen two elections for himself, and Diebold will make sure things go his way this November. If the GOP maintains its current domination of both houses, and if goerge appoints anyone else to the Extreme Court, by 2008 the 22nd Amendment might as well be scratched in the frost on your car's windshield on the morning of a day that'll see 50 degrees by 9:00 AM. By extension, the rest of what's left of the Constitution will be used to wipe the windshield clean and dry.

And if you don't understand that yet, you haven't been paying attention. So, start.

The truth about goerge's illegal spying on law-abiding citizens...

Who Would Jesus Spy On?

...versus what resluglicons and the vast, right-wing conspiracy lying machine say is the truth.

Every lie debunked, once and for all.

In the parallel universe of Kancervatron*, demanding fair elections is now "anarchy"

Who Would Jesus Marginalize?

(*Where goerge was duly elected twice, war is peace, freedom is slavery, Adam and Eve rode vegetarian t-rexes to church, and 2+2=5.)

Perhaps it's a step up from "dissidents" as the AP once called them, but Election Transparency Advocates who turned out today at Arizona's Sec. of State Jan Brewer's speech to announce her re-election bid were labeled "anarchists" and "conspiracy theorists" by the woman who recently approved Diebold's flawed "AccuVote" touch-screen voting machines for use in virtually every precinct in the state.

During her speech today, according to the Arizona Star, "which boasted of the state getting rid of the last punch card ballots as part of her accomplishments since being elected in 2002 but one that never mentioned the Diebold contract" the Republican official in charge of ensuring free, fair and accurate elections in the state was repeatedly interrupted by advocates for transparent election who objected to the use of Diebold's failed machinery in the state.

Diebold's election equipment was recently shown to be hackable in a mock election test in Leon County, Florida, where the final results were completely flipped by computer security specialists. Over the summer, 20% of the same AccuVote touch-screen systems that Brewer approved on Friday, were found to have failed during a massive mock election test in California.

According to the Star, Brewer apparently dismissed the adamant concerns of the very voters she is (theoretically) in charge of serving:

Brewer, responding to media questions, called the noisy protestors "anarchists" and said they were off base.

"I don't think there is a problem with the Diebold equipment," she said. Brewer said a committee investigated the bids and the machines passed on the guidelines.

"I think that there are a lot of conspiracy theorists out there that are trying to blow this completely, totally out of proportion," she said.

Santorum: Abramoff-Endorsed, Lobbyist-Approved

The Hill reports that Majority Leader Bill Frist is enlisting the support of Sen. Rick Santorum to craft a conservative version of a lobbying reform bill. The selection of Santorum suggests that the Senate leadership is not seriously committed to lobbying reform. Santorum cannot reasonably be considered a credible messenger for reform because he was largely responsible for creating the culture and environment in which Abramoff’s criminal activity thrived.

Santorum was a key player in implementing the “K Street Project,” an effort by conservatives in the wake of Bush’s 2000 victory to monopolize influential positions at trade associations and corporate government affairs offices. The Washington Monthly described Santorum’s role:

Santorum’s Tuesday meetings are a crucial part of that effort. Every week, the lobbyists present pass around a list of the jobs available and discuss whom to support. Santorum’s responsibility is to make sure each [job opening] is filled by a loyal Republican–a senator’s chief of staff, for instance, or a top White House aide, or another lobbyist whose reliability has been demonstrated. After Santorum settles on a candidate, the lobbyists present make sure it is known whom the Republican leadership favors.

Santorum created an environment in which Abramoff flourished. From NPR’s Marketplace (1/5/06):

The infamous K Street Project…set up a money-generating machine to fuel GOP campaign coffers and think tanks. But in the process, jobs also got traded for official acts, including legislation, and that’s illegal. Abramoff simply took advantage of K Street’s ingenious scheme. Trading jobs for official acts is one of the charges against him.

Having recently returned his campaign contributions from Jack Abramoff, Santorum has apparently been deemed clean enough to help fix the problem he once helped create.

14 And He found in the temple those who sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the moneychangers doing business.
15 When He had made a whip of cords, He drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and the oxen, and poured out the changers' money and overturned the tables.
16 And He said to those who sold doves, "Take these things away! Do not make My Father's house a house of merchandise!"

Saipan is an American territory in the South Pacific also known as the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. In the mid-1990s Abramoff was on the payroll of Saipan officials aiming to stop legislation that would crack down on sweat shop conditions, which run rampant on the island. In 1997, Abramoff arranged a lavish trip to the island of Saipan for Delay."

Some Israelis fear motives of US Christian right As well they should.

The Israeli government is planning to give up a large slice of land to American Christian evangelicals to build a biblical theme park by the Sea of Galilee where Jesus is said to have walked on water and fed 5,000 with five loaves and two fish.

A consortium of Christian groups, led by the television evangelist Pat Robertson, is in negotiation with the Israeli ministry of tourism and a deal is expected in the coming months. The project is expected to bring up to 1 million extra tourists a year but an undeclared benefit will be the cementing of a political alliance between the Israeli rightwing and the American Christian right.

However, the alliance has not been welcomed by all Israelis, including some who fear the ultimate aim of the evangelicals is the conversion of the Jews to Christianity rather than support for Israel.

It's fitting to use the money they all worship to teach them the last lesson they'll ever learn, and to offer a learning opportunity for future criminals. It'll be carried live on all networks, including cable. We also hire photographers to get a good pictorial record of the event.

Next we take those pictures and make two, long panoramic posters of Abramamoff and each Congresscrook being lit up. One big poster gets hung in the Senate, the other in the House. We know such warnings won't phase the next generation of resluglicon criminals any more than outlawing kiddie porn stops that sewage, but at least they'll have a chance to avoid the same fate Abramamoff and his buds suffered.

The Pimping of the Presidency

Four months after he took the oath of office in 2001, President George W. Bush was the attraction, and the White House the venue, for a fundraiser organized by the alleged perpetrator of the largest billing fraud in the history of corporate lobbying. In May 2001, Jack Abramoff’s lobbying client book was worth $4.1 million in annual billing for the Greenberg Traurig law firm. He was a friend of Bush advisor Karl Rove. He was a Bush “Pioneer,” delivering at least $100,000 in bundled contributions to the 2000 campaign. He had just concluded his work on the Bush Transition Team as an advisor to the Department of the Interior. He had sent his personal assistant Susan Ralston to the White House to work as Rove’s personal assistant. He was a close friend, advisor, and high-dollar fundraiser for the most powerful man in Congress, Tom DeLay. Abramoff was so closely tied to the Bush Administration that he could, and did, charge two of his clients $25,000 for a White House lunch date and a meeting with the President. From the same two clients he took to the White House in May 2001, Abramoff also obtained $2.5 million in contributions for a non-profit foundation he and his wife operated.

Abramoff’s White House guests were the chiefs of two of the six casino-rich Indian tribes he and his partner Mike Scanlon ultimately billed $82 million for services tribal leaders now claim were never performed or were improperly performed. Together the six tribes would make $10 million in political contributions, at Abramoff’s direction, almost all of it to Republican campaigns of his choosing. On May 9, 2001, when he ushered the two tribal chiefs into the White House to meet the President, The Washington Post story that would end his lobbying career and begin two Senate Committee investigations was three years away. (When the Post story broke in February 2004, however, Abramoff and Scanlon, a former Tom DeLay press aide, were already targets of a U.S. Attorney’s investigation in Washington.)

Abramoff brought the Coushatta and Choctaw chiefs to Washington at the request of Grover Norquist. Norquist is founder and director of Americans for Tax Reform, the advocacy group committed to slashing taxes until the federal government is so small you “can drown it in the bathtub.” Norquist started ATR in 1985. His power increased exponentially in 1994, when Republicans took control of the House of Representatives and he collaborated with then-Majority Whip Tom DeLay to launch the “K Street Project”—a coordinated campaign to compel lobbyists to contribute only to Republican candidates and ultimately to hire only Republicans. Like Abramoff and Rove, Norquist considered George Bush’s victory over Al Gore the culmination of a project the three Washington insiders started 30 years ago as national leaders of the College Republicans.

Much more. Read every word.

Jerry Falwell is the biggest jerk in America

He didn't care about the facts. He only cared about attacking a public school.

In case you missed it in the holiday swirl, I'm pleased to announce that Christmas arrived in Ridgeway the way it always does, with children's voices raised in song.
Of course, police cars cruised the streets of the Iowa County village and buses idled outside the holiday concert held a week ago at Ridgeway Elementary School, in case the school had to be evacuated. Proud grandmas and grandpas had to be on an approved list to get in, and a video camera was trained on the crowd in case of violence.

An overreaction? I don't think so. The school was so overwhelmed with angry calls that teachers and administrators had to use cell phones just to carry on normal business. Given that the school received thousands of nasty e-mails from all over the country, the security was prudent.

The nasty-grams and calls were prompted by an Orlando, Fla., group called Liberty Counsel, which went nationwide with charges that the school had changed the lyrics of "Silent Night" as part of a plot to secularize Christmas.

The fact that this was wrong didn't stop Ridgeway school officials from being denounced everywhere from Bill O'Reilly's show to the Rev. Jerry Falwell's online column, where Falwell wrote they were "blindly determined to kill off Christmas in the classroom."

Actually, it turned out that the changed lyrics of "Cold in the Night" are part of a copyrighted Christmas play called "The Little Tree's Christmas Gift." It was written by Dwight Elrich, music director at Bel Air Presbyterian Church in California, the church attended by former President Ronald Reagan and his wife, Nancy. Elrich was astounded his play about a lonely Christmas tree was seen as anti-Christmas.

Ah, the good, ol' days of the Contract On America when resluglicons still pretended to be for small gubmnt.

Goerge tells us how he's helped poor Afghan farmers make six times more money growing opium

Than they could make under the Taliban. (Scroll down a bit.)

And a lot of other nonsense about his war on terr.

The last story I read said opium profits in Afghanistan were up over 600% since, as Spawn Hannity says, goerge "won" that war. But that was some months ago, so it's probably higher now.

That's one way to bust up a union: Let coal miners die

All resluglicons are criminals, and have no use for any law.

Goerge's junta chose not to enforce mining safety laws. Why, you ask? Because the coal companies gave him a big bag o' cash.

Once again, I was right

GOP Leaders Seek Distance From Abramoff. Because they desperately want to pretend this is just one or two or three bad guys and not part of a consistent pattern. When they're not trying to pretend it's "bipartisan" corruption.

But it's not just a matter of how deep and wide it goes, it's the fact that there are damn few Democrats even marginally involved, and it's a Republican scandal for a reason: It's part of what they are.

We're talking a former head of the College Republicans, a dyed-in-the-wool honcho and top bag-man for a "movement" whose entire philosophy is based on piracy and fraud against the majority of Americans.

It's not good enough for Democrats to talk about individuals, whether it's Bush or DeLay or Abramoff; Republicans know how to play the integrity game, and they're already gearing-up for another round, having already primed the public to believe that the problem is "Congress" rather than the GOP.

Democrats have to make the case that this is about the way Republicans do business. The very character of Democratic scandals has always been different from the way these Republicans do things. The last House scandal the GOP ginned up was about Congressmen being overdrawn on their own personal checking accounts - hardly an example of massive corruption. Just like they had to make it up about Clinton and Gore, because they didn't have anything real to go after them for. "Filegate" and "no controlling authority" weren't even mildly dishonest, let alone some kind of Tammany Hall - and even Tammany Hall itself was nothing compared to what the Republicans are involved in.

Excerpt

Sloan continued, “the fact that the House ethics committee is still sitting on its hands, while indictment after indictment is announced by the Department of Justice, is more than just galling, it is a betrayal of the American public by Congress. It is incumbent by Members of Congress to police themselves, and they are simply not doing their job.”

http://americablog.blogspot.com/2006/01/

If by, "bipartisan," you mean, "He gave money only to republicans, but in both the Senate and the House." Which, I suppose, makes it "bicameral," not "bipartisan." But why let the facts get in the way of political spin?

Jesus didn't die for our sins

Theofascists have been rewriting history and science for decades. Now they're rewriting the New Testament.

Excerpts

The fight over invocations in Indiana's legislature, however, is anything but civil. For years, pastors have been brought in to lead state lawmakers in prayer at the start of their work day with increasingly evangelistic language. Matters came to a head in April when the Rev. Clarence Brown delivered an invocation that included thanks to God "for our lord and savior Jesus Christ, who died that we might have the right to come together in love." He said he had been thinking about the separation of church and state, but decided to ignore it because "I have to do what Jesus Christ says for me to do as a witness."

My New Testament doesn't say anything about "rights," but my copy of the Constitution sure does. And in all the times I've talked to Jesus, He never mentioned anything to me about "the right to come together in love" or ignoring the law.

Hell hath no fury: Scanlon's ex-fiancee ratted him out with Abramoff and gang

Miller, whom he met in the late 1990s while working as communications director for former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX), three former associates who worked with Scanlon at DeLay’s office said. Colleagues say Miller went to the FBI after Scanlon broke off their engagement and announced his intention to marry another woman."

Hopes he can merit forgiveness from "the Almighty" and those he screwed.

Wouldn't it have been nice if Falwell, Robertson and Dobson hated criminals as much as they hate queers? What if they had ministered to Abramoff before he pulled his jobs? Instead, they were carpetbombing cartoon characters...

...while ignoring Abramoff and a whole pile of criminals in their party, and even inviting DeLay to the "Just Us Sunday" orgies. Who do you think hurt more people, SpongeBob or Abramoff?

He faces 30 years in prison if convicted of the charges.

I'm sure Chuck Colson and his prison "ministries" scam are getting ready to save Abramoff's soul. And, of course, the souls of half the resluglicons in Congress who'll go down with this thug. Jailbirds of a feather, and all that.

He didn't die for his country, he died for PNAC

And so did the 2179 other KIAs.

More cartoon characters for theofascists to "stop"

Theofascists cannot exist without enemies to "stop"

They're always going to "stop" the newest addition to their neverending list of enemies if we'll just give them enough money and power. And, of course, our brains.

SCNG leaves $50 million worth of weapons, fighting vehicles in Iraq

If you ask them, they'll still blame Clinton's budget for ammo shortages.

Most of us repair worn out vehicles with new engines, transmissions, suspensions, brakes and/or tires. And weapons can be refurbished for less than half the cost of new ones. Us recreational shooters without unlimited budgets replace worn-out springs, firing pins, hammers, even barrels in our guns. Do they think rebuilt machine guns won't be good enough to put down armed rebellion the next time the GOP steals an election?

Aren't we all glad the fiscally responsible resluglicons are in charge of our money? And our safety, for that matter?

New budget: War=good, medical research=bad, very bad

Wait till Dr. First hears about this. He'll get that money back for his friends.

EXCLUSIVE: Abramoff's law firm lied, covered up Congress payola

Officials at the lawfirm that employed indicted conservative lobbyist Jack Abramoff lied about what they knew about his role in a massive lobbying scandal and when they knew it, former Abramoff associates say.

Greenberg Traurig’s Connecticut Avenue offices in Washington provided the stables for a coterie of aggressive lobbyists who wooed members of Congress with lavish donations, skybox suites and Scottish golfing jaunts. The firm said they first learned of Abramoff’s misadventures when they appeared in the pages of The Washington Post.

Those familiar with the sequence of events say this is a lie. They maintain the company’s top executives learned of Abramoff’s financial relationship with Rep. Tom DeLay’s (R-TX) former aide Michael Scanlon when they represented Abramoff in a bankruptcy trial.

Greenberg Traurig attorneys took up Abramoff’s defense when he was sued by lenders after a fleet of riverboat casinos he purchased went bankrupt. As part of the SunCruz casino bankruptcy suit, lawyers at the firm obtained copies of Abramoff’s tax returns, former associates tell RAW STORY. They say the returns showed he had received tens of millions of dollars from Scanlon—money investigators later said had been bilked from Indian tribes.

The firm took no public action. On Feb. 22, 2005, the Washington Post reported that Abramoff and Scanlon had received at least $45 million from Indian tribes.

Five days later, a Greenberg Traurig statement asserted Abramoff had resigned after he "disclosed to the firm for the first time personal transactions and related conduct which are unacceptable to the firm.”

Jill Perry, a spokeswoman for Greenberg Traurig, did not return a phone call or email seeking comment. Andrew Blum, Abramoff’s spokesman, and Stephen Braga, Scanlon’s attorney, did not return requests for comment Monday.

Abramoff was indicted for wire fraud and conspiracy in connection with his purchase of the riverboat casinos in August 2005. He is expected to reach a plea agreement this week to testify against members of Congress and their staff relating to legislative favors he got in exchange for campaign donations and other gifts. Scanlon pled guilty in November and is cooperating with prosecutors.

One former associate said the firm knew long in advance that Abramoff had received large sums of money from Scanlon.
