Being Liberal and a Progressive in a RED STATE is not an easy thing these days. I started this blog to vent my frustrations on our lives being taken over by right wing conservatives with their propaganda machines. I have also learned an important lesson in the last year, it is that reading is the only way to get real information, you cannot depend on the news you see on TV.

Well Part of Fitzmas Anyway

I. Scooter Libby is indicted and now has resigned. It will not be total Fitzmas til they get Turd Blossom.

AHH Revenge is so Sweet!

A few days ago it was reported that the White House had asked the satirical paper The Onion to not use the Presidential Seal in its paper:

An underling of White House counsel Harriet Miers demanded last month that The Onion immediately remove the presidential seal from the part of its site devoted to a parody of the president's weekly radio address.

So in this week's Onion we get this story:

Worse Employer in the World

An internal memo sent to Wal-Mart's board of directors proposes numerous ways to hold down spending on health care and other benefits while seeking to minimize damage to the retailer's reputation. Among the recommendations are hiring more part-time workers and discouraging unhealthy people from working at Wal-Mart.

In the memorandum, M. Susan Chambers, Wal-Mart's executive vice president for benefits, also recommends reducing 401(k) contributions and wooing younger, and presumably healthier, workers by offering education benefits. The memo voices concern that workers with seven years' seniority earn more than workers with one year's seniority, but are no more productive.

To discourage unhealthy job applicants, Ms. Chambers suggests that Wal-Mart arrange for "all jobs to include some physical activity (e.g., all cashiers do some cart-gathering)."

The memo acknowledged that Wal-Mart, the world's largest retailer, had to walk a fine line in restraining benefit costs because critics had attacked it for being stingy on wages and health coverage. Ms. Chambers acknowledged that 46 percent of the children of Wal-Mart's 1.33 million United States employees were uninsured or on Medicaid.

Worse Than Watergate or Wake up America

From Arianna Huffington at the Huffington Post

To borrow a phrase from that era, let me make myself perfectly clear: I'm not saying that Plamegate is the same as Watergate. I'm saying it's worse. Much, much worse. No one died as a result of Watergate, but 2,000 American soldiers have now been killed and thousands more wounded to rid the world of an imminent threat that wasn't.

Could there be anything bigger?

2. The targets of indictment have already received their letters.

3. The indictments will be sealed indictments and "filed" tomorrow.

4. A press conference is being scheduled for Thursday.

Fitzmas Eve?

Twas the night before Fitzmas and all through D.C.,
Many minds were a twitter with thoughts of, "Why Me?"
The indictments were hung by Fitzpatrick with care,
in hope that some wingnut with truth he would share.

Laura was adorned in her stepford attire
while George was bogged down with his Harriet Mier.
When then on K-Street there arose such a clatter
that Rove checked the internet to see what was the matter.

The glow of the moniter on the dark night
gave an eery display of the upcoming fright.
When what made Rove's eyes to suddenly bead?
but eight full indictments with him in the lead!

On Scooter, on Cheney, on Bolton, on Karl, on all of the cronies in King George's rule,
tomorrow you will say that you are nobody's fool.
But documents will show that Fitzgerald has found,
that corruption in the Bush house has made you a clown.

As dry leaves before Katrina will fly and they meet with the faces of destitute folk,
Bush is looked on by most of us as a big joke,
and levees have broken and poor people lose,
You must choose between honesty and a big ruse.

Then in a twinkling we hear on TV 'bout WMDs and Yellow cake lies,
and the treasonous outing of American Spies,
and as i drew in my head and was turning around,
Fitzpatrick indicted the crooks with a bound.

He was dressed in a suit and looked really tough,
he looked like a saint with edges so rough,
Indictments he bore in his pages of notes,
a newAbram Lincoln with suave gucci coats.

His eyes how they twinkled, his dimples how merry,
his indictments as strong as a seed in a cherry.
His droll little mouth whispered nary a peep,
of corruption, corruption, coruption, so deep.

He was big and tough, a silent old giant,
and I idolized him in spite of his silence.
A wink of his eye and a nod of his head,
Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread.

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
Filled out the indictments and then turned with a jerk,
while silently studying the Bush/Cheney guys,
Fitzpatrick took on their corruption and lies.

He sprang to his office and to his team said OK,
"Let's indict them all," he said just today.
2000 have died for George Bush's lies
"Let's save the rest," Mr. Fritz proclaimed, "if not then my two years have been all
in vain."

And I heard him proclaim after jailing the Bush Creeps, Merry Fitzmas to all and to all a
good sleep."

There's no substitute for guts --Bear Bryant

Rosa Parks Died Tonight

Rosa Parks, civil rights heroine, is dead

When Rosa Parks refused to get up, an entire race of people began to stand up for their rights as human beings.

It was a simple act that took extraordinary courage in Montgomery, Ala., in 1955. It was a place where black people had no rights white people had to respect. It was a time when racial discrimination was so common, many blacks never questioned it.

Barbie and Ken Getting Back Together?

NEW YORK (AP) - Barbie and Ken, together again?

Mattel says Ken may be getting a makeover. The plastic-fantastic couple was splitsville two years ago, after a 43-year romance. But Russell
Arons, vice president of marketing at Mattel, says Barbie fans will see some big changes this spring.

She says a makeover may be just what Ken needs to get back in the game. Mattel tried to update Barbie's image by having her split with Ken and head to a California beach.

Her new main squeeze was Blaine, an Australian
boogie boarder. But things didn't work out -- at least not at the cash register. Industry observers note sales of the Barbie line have been slumping.

Kenndy Tries Again -- Fails Again

Senate proposals to raise the minimum wage were rejected Wednesday, making it unlikely that the lowest allowable wage, $5.15 an hour since 1997, will rise in the foreseeable future.

A labor-backed measure by Sen. Edward Kennedy would have raised the minimum to $6.25 over an 18-month period.

Irked Arnold Snubbing Bush

In a salute to Ronald Reagan, President Bush is helping dedicate a new Air Force One exhibit at the former president's library, but his appearance at a GOP fundraiser while he's here has upset some California Republicans.

Arnold Schwarzenegger became irked at Mr. Bush for making an appearance in order to raise money from the same Republicans the governor wants help from in a special election fight. So, in retaliation, Schwarzenegger is snubbing the president's biggest public appearance in the state.

The IMPORTANT Stuff Comes First

I saw this on Coundown with Keith the other night and finally got it from the transcripts of the show. Emails from a FEMA member inside the Superdome in New Orleans to FEMA directer Michael Brown about the urgency of the situation going on there after Katrina:

Marty Bahamonde, said to be Brown‘s eyes and ears within the city, writes: “The situation is past critical. Hotels are kicking people out. Thousands gathering in the streets with no food or water. Estimates are many will die within hours.”

Bahamonde tells Senate investigators, he doesn‘t remember getting a response to that e-mail but later was forwarded this one. Brown‘s press secretary Fredding (ph) about Brown‘s dining plans for that evening. “It‘s very important that time is allowed for Mr. Brown to eat dinner, she writes, given that Baton Rouge is back to normal, restaurants are getting busy. He needs much more than 20 or 30 minutes.”

Bahamonde expressed his frustration about the dinner e-mail writing: “Oh, my God!!!!!!!! Just tell her that I just ate MRE and went to the bathroom in the hallway of the Superdome along with 30,000 other close friends, so I understand her concern about busy restaurants.”

Rove, Libby Discussed Reporter Info

from the AP:

Rove, Libby Discussed Reporter Info

Top White House aides Karl Rove and I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby discussed their contacts with reporters about an undercover CIA officer in the days before her identity was published, the first known intersection between two central figures in the criminal leak investigation.

Rove told grand jurors it was possible he first heard in the White House that Valerie Plame, wife of Bush administration Joseph Wilson, worked for the CIA from Libby's recounting of a conversation with a journalist, according to people familiar with his testimony.

Rumors: Will (a) Dick Resign?

White House Watch: Cheney resignation rumors fly

Sparked by today's Washington Post story that suggests Vice President Cheney's office is involved in the Plame-CIA spy link investigation, government officials and advisers passed around rumors that the vice president might step aside and that President Bush would elevate Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

Biological Warfare and the Anti-War Protesters

I linked to an article about this a few weeks ago when it was reported, how six biological-weapons sensors detected a deadly bacteria Francisella tularensis which causes tularemia in Washington DC during the anti-war protest. Salon discusses The Biological alarm in Washington:

On Sept. 24, 2005, tens of thousands of protesters marched past the White House and flooded the National Mall near 17th Street and Constitution Avenue. They had arrived from all over the country for a day of speeches and concerts to protest the war in Iraq. It may have been the biggest antiwar rally since Vietnam.

...six of those machines sucked in trace amounts of deadly bacteria called Francisella tularensis. The government fears it is one of six biological weapons most likely to be used against the United States....

....Salon has spoken to numerous people who were at the Washington Mall on Sept. 24. Four say they got sick days later with symptoms that mirror tularemia.....

This is really scary and you would think the MSM would be investigating and reporting on this story. Read the whole article it convinced me it was not a natural happening.

Also from Sploid:

"Somebody" testing U.S. biological weapons defenses ... on Washington's Mall, on the very day an estimated 300,000 Americans gathered to protest the White House's endless war. If somebody within the government was running an experiment to "see what would happen," were they satisfied that the news media would all but ignore the event if not directed to cause hysteria?

Did Washington 'test' bioweapons on D.C. war protesters?

A Shining Star in the Middle East

On the Condi Rice visit to Afghanistan:

Hours after rockets were fired at foreign diplomatic facilities and the Afghan security headquarters here, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice arrived in the Afghan capital Wednesday for talks about ongoing military operations and efforts to stabilize the country's fragile new democracy.

Rice's visit, the first by a senior U.S. official since Afghanistan's parliamentary elections last month, also came as six Afghan soldiers and five Afghan aid workers, including two doctors, were killed in attacks Wednesday blamed on insurgents from the Islamic extremist Taliban militia.

.....Unlike on previous trips to the country, foreign reporters traveling with Rice were compelled to wear bulletproof vests, and armed guards rode with them in buses from the airport to the presidential palace in Kabul.....

Then there's the most obvious evidence of global warming in B.C.; a catastrophe visible from space, or by a drive along virtually any highway through the Interior.
The epidemic of mountain pine beetles - which can only be stopped by early and prolonged cold weather -is forecast to kill 80 per cent of B.C.'s lodgepole pine stands by 2013, said Jenny Fraser, a climate change analyst with B.C.'s environment ministry. And she noted the impacts evident already may be just a taste of what is to come.

The city's rich and well-connected were tipped off to last week's subway terror threat days before average New Yorkers, the Daily News has learned.

At least two E-mails revealing the purported plot were sent to a select crowd of business and arts executives early last week by New Yorkers who claimed to have close connections to Homeland Security and other federal officials, authorities said.

The NYPD confirmed that it learned of the E-mails on Oct. 3 - three days before Mayor Bloomberg, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly and the FBI went public with the threat.

24 Years of Dealing with Public School Teachers

I am so sick of Public School and teachers after 24 years of dealing with such. Tonight my last child, senior in High School told me an assistant principal had read his online blog and told him to either clean it up or not get a "gold card" a stupid incentive they started this year that supposedly gleans the good kids from the bad kids. The bad kids: Ones who forget or lose their ID cards, are late to school and various other infractions that are subject to not being able to get a hall pass go to the bathroom or get to go to lunch. What an idiotic plan. What do you teachers want, the kids to wet their pants? Oh by the way weren't you the ones sending out the notes that kids need nutrition to do well on tests and other educational stuff, (Dear Parents, make sure your child eats a good meal today as we will be testing and good nutrition makes for a better testing atmosphere.) Ok you idiots I always feed my child, but it appears that you will take away his lunch if he forgets his ID. Kind of of stupid if you ask me.

What the hell are you doing reading his blog and making judgment calls about taking his lunch and his bathroom privileges away, for writing his private thoughts. A blog may be out there for everyone to see, but should have no bearing on anything he is judged on at school

It seems that what I can discern from what he tells me you are a bunch of hypocritical republicans that want to change his very nature and views. I can tell you right now your effort is fruitless. You would think you would be happy that he has never been in trouble in High School and never had a detention. What else do you want? Leave the shaping of his views to me and his father, teach him facts not opinions and the collision of our two worlds will be a lot less ominous.

News Orgs Working On Story Tying Cheney Into Plamegate… Developing…

The Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg are working on stories that point to Vice President Dick Cheney as the target of special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald's investigation into the leaking of CIA operative Valerie Plame's name.

Cheney Wins in Iraq by 3,281%

From Raw Story:

An analysis released by a Democratic senator found that Vice President Dick Cheney's Halliburton stock options have risen 3,281 percent in the last year, RAW STORY can reveal.

Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) asserts that Cheney's options -- worth $241,498 a year ago -- are now valued at more than $8 million. The former CEO of the oil and gas services juggernaut, Cheney has pledged to give proceeds to charity.

.....“Halliburton has already raked in more than $10 billion from the Bush-Cheney Administration for work in Iraq, and they were awarded some of the first Katrina contracts," Lautenberg said in a statement. "It is unseemly for the Vice President to continue to benefit from this company at the same time his Administration funnels billions of dollars to it. The Vice President should sever his financial ties to Halliburton once and for all.....”

Just retracted about Bono


Just reported on the same bogus story about Santorum and Bono, don't they vett their stories before reporting? I can't believe they just did that!

This is the most disgusting News organization on the net News Max.Com
I signed on to get their daily email just to see what new lie that would be telling each day, today's takes the cake:

Bono, U2 in Fundraiser for Senator Rick Santorum

On Sunday, October 16, a truly unique political event will take place.

Teaming up with the legendary rock group U2 for a one-night only appearance will be Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Penn.).

The thousand-dollar-a-seat concert has been put together by Sean and Ana Wolfington and will take place at the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia in support of Santorum's re-election, reports NewsMax's James Hirsen.

I found out the truth here:

What this really is: from National Review's The Corner:
That Newsmax item was misleading. Since linking to that I've checked it with the campaign: Bono has not endorsed the Santorum campaign, he is not doing a fundraiser for Santorum. A couple bought a box at a U2 concert and are using the purchase as a Santorum fundraiser. But it's totally independent of Bono or U2.

No, No, No

Local Christian Coalition Official Did Molest, Family Members Tell 'The Oregonian'

After news broke that local law enforcement officials were investigating complaints that Louis Beres, longtime chairman of the Christian Coalition of Oregon, had molested three female family members when they were pre-teens, The Oregonian in Portland went out and interviewed Beres' family members.

Two told reporters that Beres, indeed, had molested them. All three said they have been interviewed for several hours by detectives.

.....The coalition led by Beres, 70, champions socially conservative candidates and causes. Its Web site describes the group as "Oregon's leading grassroots organization defending our Godly heritage." The group opposes abortion, gay rights, and stem cell research. It is affiliated with the national Christian Coalition, which was founded in 1989 by television evangelist Pat Robertson.....

.....Tiny Smurfs scatter and run in vain from the whistling bombs, before being felled by blast waves and fiery explosions. The final scene shows a scorched and tattered Baby Smurf sobbing inconsolably, surrounded by prone Smurfs.

Iraq Vets Running for Congress as Dems

Lawyer Patrick Murphy and five other veterans of the Iraq war are asking questions about President Bush's policies in Iraq as part of their broader Democratic campaigns to win congressional seats in next year's elections.

Unauthorized Reproduction

How scary is this, the state of Indiana wants a law that says only married people can use medical science to conceive a child:

Gays, lesbians and single Hoosiers would be prohibited from using medical science to help have a child under a bill being considered by an interim legislative committee.

......It defines assisted reproduction as causing pregnancy by means other than sexual intercourse, including intrauterine insemination, donation of an egg, donation of an embryo, in vitro fertilization and transfer of an embryo, and sperm injection.

The bill then requires “intended parents” to be married to each other and specifically says an unmarried person may not be an intended parent.

A doctor can’t begin an assisted reproduction technology procedure that may result in a child’s being born until the intended parents of the child have received a certificate of satisfactory completion of an assessment required under the bill....

State bill would limit procreation assistance

The invasion of Iraq was the “greatest strategic disaster in United States history,”

The invasion of Iraq was the “greatest strategic disaster in United States history,” a retired Army general said yesterday, strengthening an effort in Congress to force an American withdrawal beginning next year., Retired Army Lt. Gen. William Odom, a Vietnam veteran, said the invasion of Iraq alienated America's Middle East allies, making it harder to prosecute a war against terrorists.

The U.S. should withdraw from Iraq, he said, and reposition its military forces along the Afghan-Pakistani border to capture Osama bin Laden and crush al Qaeda cells.
