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.

HaHa That Sure is Funny -- Olbermann gets sent fake Anthrax

Republican RAG NY Post thinks it funny to get sent fake anthrax. I wonder if it would be so funny had it been sent to Bill O'Reilly or Rush Limbaugh -- actually I think this is a pretty serious crime:

MSNBC loudmouth Keith Olbermann flipped out when he opened his home mail yesterday. The acerbic host of "Countdown with Keith Olbermann" was terrified when he opened a suspicious-looking letter with a California postmark and a batch of white powder poured out. A note inside warned Olbermann, who's a frequent critic of President Bush's policies, that it was payback for some of his on-air shtick. The caustic commentator panicked and frantically called 911 at about 12:30 a.m., sources told The Post's Philip Messing. An NYPD HazMat unit rushed to Olbermann's pad on Central Park South, but preliminary tests indicated the substance was harmless soap powder. However, that wasn't enough to satisfy Olbermann, who insisted on a checkup. He asked to be taken to St. Luke's Hospital, where doctors looked him over and sent him home. Whether they gave him a lollipop on the way out isn't known. Olbermann had no comment


Gallup Poll ~~ Bush More to Blame than Clinton for bin Laden

Counter offensive

And so SO writes this:

After reading the letter Ungodly Hogwash, I felt compelled to write about Mr. Bruns’s statement that gays and lesbians are being given priority status by certain companies.

I am an employee of American Airlines which is a company that proudly supports the GLBT community. GLBTs do not ask for any special rights, only for the human and American right not to be discriminated against.

This “special rights” theme is rhetoric by the religious right to mask pro-discrimination policy positions. Seeking protection from inequality in America should not be seen as a special right or a priority status but as an absolute right. It is certainly hypocritical of religious believers to favor restrictions on gays when they benefit from and defend special rights for themselves.

A few years ago American Airlines was attacked by a host of religious right leaders for its anti-discrimination policies for gays which they said promoted discrimination against their religious employees. This was so ridiculous that American’s own Christian employees disavowed it.

As a matter of fact American Airlines is dedicated to anti-discrimination and respect in all aspect of life with fourteen Employee Resource Groups. Their mission statement is: "Our commitment is to having a workplace that is permeated with dignity, respect and kindness. The evidence of this commitment must be more than what we do — it should be a bright, clear expression that emanates from our core values." This covers not only the GLBT community, but all religions, ethnicities, working moms, parents and employees over forty.

It is Mr. Bruns right as an American to believe that homosexuality is an abomination, but it is not his right to demand certain members of our society be discriminated against. Bigotry, intolerance and hate should not be an American or a moral value.

I Just Want to Scream and Pull My Hair Out

When I read these kind of letters from our Wingnut rag newspaper:

ungodly hogwash

It has come to my attention how numerous corporations and businesses support the gay agenda by giving priority status to gay and lesbian organizations.

Not only is this ungodly but also discrimination toward Christian and other organizations that are godly and having Christian morals and values.

Concerning gay rights or gays being a minority, this is hogwash and devilish. Gays and lesbians have the same constitutional rights as any Americna citizen, and gays and lesbians are definitely not minorites but are definitely an abomination to the Lord God through Christ Jesus and a reproach toward mankind!

via Tapped:

OBSCENE. Both the Times and the Post note this morning that Bush laid two wreaths at ground zero last night in the company of George Pataki, Mike Bloomberg, and Rudy Giuliani. The Post goes well out of its way to remark that the event “left aside the partisan rancor” that…well, that Bush & Co. have enforced on the country since about 9-14.

If this event was so nonpartisan, where were Chuck Schumer and Hillary Clinton? Neither paper makes any mention of their having been there. I’m told that in fact they were not invited (they were at St. Paul’s church, where Bush went after laying the wreaths -- and where there were apparently no photographers!!). In what sense does an event that features four Republicans but excludes the two senators who were representing New York at the time of the event, but who happen to be Democrats, leave aside partisan rancor?

I was in NYC during 9-11 and for two years after, and I remember Chuck and HRC (and House members of both parties) attending virtually all previous such commemorations. Today’s New York Post carries this photo of the four Republicans arriving on the scene. That’s the photo the White House wanted. Can you imagine how Chuck and especially HRC would’ve mucked that up for them?

Freddie Phelps Doesn't Like Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert

Attention Godless Sodomites

From the Fire and Brimstone Desk: Westboro Baptist Church Pastor Fred "Kooky" Phelps, also known as the man who single-handedly keeps the "God Hates Fags" sign industry in business, has set his sites on hellbound Jon Stewart and "hooligan sidekick" Stephen Colbert for their little Emmy skit.

This is funny:

How to Change History

I saw a George Carlin routine the other day where he said that everything we hear about is being told by "the man." The man being the ones who own everything, the newspapers, tv stations, radio, etc. We only get told what they want us to hear. In other words they can change history just by the retelling of it over and over again, until everyone believes it and retells it in that way.

In the 1980's we had a mediocre president named Ronald Reagan. He was a union buster, with no empathy for the little guy or worker. He believed HIV was a gift from god to do away with gays. He illegally sold Iran weapons, and then funneled some of the proceeds to the Contra insurgency in Nicaragua. This was a blatant and intentional violation of federal law. But does anyone know all of that now? No somehow he has been elevated into being one of our best presidents. When he died, I sat and listened in amazement as he was elevated to sainthood.

Now we come to the new mocumentary that ABC is going to be showing about September the 11th (The Path to 9/11) and how it was all Bill Clinton's fault. They have even teamed up with education publishing giant Scholastic to spread misinformation about Iraq and Bush's War on Terrorism to millions of American high school students. They are trying to change history again. Roger Cressey and Dick Clarke who were involved in the things protrayed in the movie about Bin Laden and Clinton, say it is all a lie. But ABC is still going to show it. And so it begins, the portrayal of President Clinton as the reason we were attacked as history is slowly changed.

Because the man of course is always on the conservative side, we might as well figure that there will never be another "good" democratic president. History will be changed as with Clinton and our children will never know the real truth.

Just imagine that in twenty years they will be saying that George Bush was the greatest president that ever lived and everyone will believe it.

Just shoot me now and get it all over with!!!!!!!!!!!!!
