Dick(less) Cheney's Wet Dreams

There are so many thoughts running through my head regarding Cheney and Leahy's exchange on the Senate floor. However since I'm a lady, I'll let The Rude Pundit voice them for me...

"Of course, there's also reports that Cheney said, "Fuck you" or "Fuck off." Do you think Leahy was tempted to grab Cheney by his tie and say, "No, fuck you, you sick, twisted shell of a human being; fuck you, you demi-man, you cunt, you little pussy, sitting in your basement and jacking off to war plans about which you know jackshit, Mister 'I got every deferrment short of chopping my own leg off' Vice President. No, really, fuck you, you lying sack of shit, contorted like a circus dwarf by the weight of your evil, by the horror that this administration is falling down around you like so many Gomorrahs filled with depraved beastial sodomite pig fuckers. Fuck me? No, no, fuck you, and get the fuck out of my sight before I shove my cock in that crooked, stroke victim mouth of yours and fuck your face until you declare my dick is a nuclear missle, that my balls are a mobile weapons lab, until you cry that my cum is a chemical weapon."

Or maybe Leahy just stared at Cheney and shook his head, safe in the knowledge that powerful people lash out only when they are cornered and worn down by the weight of all their lies and the evil that they do.

And every time Bush and Cheney appear in public now, they are constantly defensive. The corner's getting tighter and tighter. And, Lord knows how they have fucked themselves.


Mission Unaccomplished

You know what they say about the best laid plans. I had big plans to see "Fahrenheit 9/11" this weekend. However, Murphy (of Murphy's Laws) has conspired against me. I'm beginning to suspect that Murphy may be part of that vast right wing conspiracy that is determined to make my life (along with Bill and Hillary's) a mishmash of good intentions, and you know what they say about good intentions. I digress. Since I am unable to get out to see the movie I am going to offer up for your reading pleasure one of the best, most comprehensive reviews I have read to date. It's written by a regular here at Words, who clearly missed her calling as a movie critic. To give you a hint at how good this review is here is a small exert:

"There is something ironic about MoveOn.org supporting this film with the fervor that it has. It would be hard to claim that this movie is pro-Democrat, or pro-Kerry. The Democrats in this movie are shown to be unforgivably complicity and/or spineless..."

Your appetite wetted? Want more? First thoughts after viewing Fahrenheit 9/11

Fahrenheit 9/11

"It's an accomplished documentary with an extremely powerful message."
Paul Clinton: CNN Reviewer.
"It's certainly thought provoking..." Dan Rather

Anyone who calls the mainstream media Liberally biased, certainly isn't watching the same media I am. I watch a lot of cable network news programs. MSNBC, CNN, FOX,CSPAN, and Headline News.
I watch Abrams, Norville,O'Reilly,Scarborough,Chris Matthews,Hannity & Combs,and Greta. I also try to catch the network (CBS,ABC, & NBC) news at least once a day. I check their websites several times a day almost everyday. I think you could safely say, I'm a fairly well informed person. I can't name a single member of the media that I would say is even close to being biased toward liberals. In fact just the opposite is true. I'd be willing to bet a weeks salary that not one of the news journalist/reporters I've mentioned will be voting for John Kerry. They have all had some very disparaging things to say about President Clinton's new book and Moore's film.
Of course this is the same media that convicted Scott Peterson of killing his wife and child before the investigation was even completed. An investigation that it now appears was flawed, because the head investigator decided early on that Scott was the guilty and didn't even bother to dig any deeper. Apparently these people didn't learn anything from the OJ Simpson trial. Because of fools like this, murderer's will go free. Whether it was Peterson (Simpson),or someone else, shoddy police work, over zealous prosecutors, and a strongly opinionated media, we will probably never know who killed Lacy Peterson or Nicole Simpson. Yes, we all have our opinions but opinions and theories are not what the police, prosecutors, and the media are suppose to be presenting. Present the facts, evidence, and proof. Let the jury or the public decide for ourselves. We are capable of doing that. We don't need to be lied to. Or talked to like we're children. We don't need to be given only the evidence that supports your theory. Give us the facts and let us decide.
This is just as important when reporting the news as it is when you are presenting a case to a jury. Lives are at stake either way.
You report, we'll decide.

The Great Divide(r)

"John Kerry jumped off the presidential campaign trail Tuesday so he could vote for a measure funding health care benefits for veterans -- only to watch Republican leaders postpone the vote."

They bitched because he wasn' there for the votes, then when he leaves the campaign trail to return for a vote, what do they do? The Repugnicans Republicans postpone the vote. But that's not even the worse part. "GOP aides conceded that even if Kerry had voted, Republicans would have switched their votes to make sure it failed anyway."

What happened to George W. Bush's promise to be a uniter, not a divider. To all the promises to bring the country back together? Just more lies. Why does that not surprise me?


CNN Quick Poll:
Is the U.S. winning the war on terror?

For the past 3 years (maybe even longer) we've been told that Osama Bin Laden was the worlds most dangerous man/terrorist. Followed closely by Saddam Hussein. That's why we bombed the life out of Afghanistan, and declared war on Iraq. Oddly enough, now that Saddam is out of the way, and Bin Laden is persona non grata, guess what? The world now has another Most Dangerous Terroris . So, it appears that no matter who we dethrone. Who we chase into hiding, there will be someone just as evil, just as dangerous, standing in the wings, waiting anxiously to step up and take over the reins of terrorism.
Maybe the time has come for us to stop using the eye for and eye method of combating terrorism and start listening to men like this one.

Understand the author of this bood must remain anonymous because the CIA requires that he do so. But they did approve the release of the book. Which speaks volumes about the relationship between the CIA and our present administration.

Republicans are jumping ship. Generals are speaking out. The CIA is allowing their employees to publish books that criticize the current administration. We rarely ever see Colin Powel. Pat Buchanan's writing a book (Where The Right Went Wrong) that is said to be similiar to something Michael Moore might write. What is it going to take for those moderate Republican consevatives to realize that George W. Bush has failed? That he does not deserve another opportunity to continue to plunge this country any further into the unmitagated mess we are now experiencing? Where do they draw the line between party loyalty and loyalty to their country?
Neocons call liberals un-American, and unpatriotic. What do you call it when people put their blind loyalty to a man and his party above the welfare of their country? If you genuinely love this country how can you possiblity want to see things continue as they are now? How do you justify that?

Dumb and Dumber

On his recent trip to Great Britain, George Bush had a meeting with Queen Elizabeth. He asked her, "How does one manage to run a country so smoothly?"

"That`s easy," she replied, "You surround yourself with intelligent ministers and advisors."

"But how can I tell whether they are intelligent or not?" he inquired. "You ask them a riddle," she replied, and with that she pressed a button and said,"Would you please send Tony Blair in."

When Blair arrived, the Queen said, "I have a riddle for you to answer for me. Your parents had a child and it was not your sister and it was not your brother. Who was this child ?"

Blair replied, "That`s easy. The child was me." "Very good," said the Queen, "You may go now."

So President Bush went back to Washington and called in his chief political strategist, Karl Rove. He said to him, "I have a riddle for you, and the answer is very important. Your parents had a child and it was not your sister and it was not your brother. Who was this child ?"

Rove replied, "Yes, it is clearly very important that we determine the answer, as no child must be left behind. Can I deliberate on this for a while?"

"Yes," said Bush, "I'll give you four hours to come up with the answer."

So Rove went and called a meeting of the White House Staff, and asked them the riddle. But after much discussion and many suggestions, none of them had a satisfactory answer. So he was quite upset, not knowing what he would tell the President.

As Rove was walking back to the Oval Office, he saw Secretary of State Colin Powell approaching him. So he said, "Mr. Secretary, can you answer this riddle for me. Your parents had a child and it was not your sister and it was not your brother. Who was the child?"

"That's easy," said Powell, "The child was me." "Oh thank you," said Rove, "You may just have saved me my job!"

So Rove went in to the Oval Office and said to President Bush, "I think I know the answer to your riddle. The child was Colin Powell!"

"No, you idiot!" shouted Bush, "The child was Tony Blair!"

Sign's of The Times

Does this look like a happy man?

"Public anxiety over mounting casualties in Iraq and doubts about long-term consequences of the war continue to rise and have helped to erase President Bush's once-formidable advantage over Sen. John F. Kerry concerning who is best able to deal with terrorist threats, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll." MSNBC

I hope he looks just this way the morning of November 3rd as he congratulates John Kerry on his victorious race for the Presidency.

"There is something wrong when religious faiths can be shaken to the core by natural disasters but seem able to reconcile themselves with events such as the war on Iraq which are the result of human folly." ( Muriel Gray )

I display this ribbon because I feel as if I have entered a period of mourning. Mourning for my loss of trust, and faith. In our election process, and our government. Mourning for the freedoms we have already lost and those I fear we will loose in the near future. More about Black
