You know how when you ask a teenager to do something they say, “in a minute…” And a few minutes go by and you ask them again. They look at you like you’re a little simple minded and say, “yeah yeah… in a minute.” You drop it and let your blood […]

Just how strong is al Qaeda? The “media” thinks it’s as strong as it ever was.
That can’t be true, of course, because that means we spent $500 billion and killed half a million or more people and are right back where we started.
Mind you, I’m a homeowner, so I’m used to […]

A public opinion poll from the American Research Group recently reported that more than four in ten Americans — 45% — favor impeachment hearings for President Bush and more than half — 54% — favored impeachment for Vice President Cheney. Yet absolutely nothing is happening.
Who’s to blame? Congress. FindLaw’s John […]

Actually, I don’t know that I’d call it “revolting.”
The stakes are now officially higher. Republicans who have spent years sitting on their benchmarks and scratching their nay votes have awakened from Republican hibernation. It’s time to run for re-election. And that means switching from mindless loyalty mode to serving whatever master […]

CNN reported Thursday that the Secret Service expects President Bush to be “a high value terrorist target after he leaves office” — and that’s just among Americans. As such, George Bush will be guarded by an unprecedented 103 full-time agents starting in January 2009. However, a 1997 law limits the duration of Secret Service […]

It’s always interesting to see how other countries describe our country. Take this comment, for example, by The Guardian: “On the other hand, America has eight million people with no job, 40 million individuals with no health insurance, 35 million living below the poverty line, and a population that exists mainly on junk food.”
Uhm… and […]

President Bush stressed compassion in discussing his support for the immigration bill, currently in limbo, at a gathering of Hispanic Christian and community leaders last week. What does he mean by compassion?
An overlooked tidbit in the immigration bill would grant “instant legal status and ultimately full citizenship to illegal immigrants if they enlist in the […]

Monika Stafa opens her newscast with news of the president’s visit. As he moves through the crowd, notice he is wearing a wrist watch on his left wrist in the open scene… and shortly thereafter is not wearing a wristwatch. Those nutty Albanians! Look for it to show up soon on eBay. […]

The Surgeon General of the United States in the years before the Bush administration was always considered “America’s chief health educator.” But Bush nominee, James W. Holsinger, is a believe in “gay sleepaway camp” — treatments that are meant to un-queer or de-gay homosexuals.
In 2000, he helped found the Hope Springs Community Church, […]

Leaders of the world are meeting at the G8 summit to discuss global warming and ways of reducing its impact. A jovial Bush, however, is holding firm against any long-term targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, effectively derailing the highest priority item on the agenda. Hmmm. Well, there’s always G9.

Martha Raddatz had a story on ABC News alleging discovery of a U.S. plan to keep troops in Iraq not just until 2009, but, “one long-term plan would have 30,000 to 50,000 U.S. forces in Iraq for five to 10 years beyond 2009.” That’s 2019.

The Bush administration asked for a 3% military raise to go into effect January 1, 2008. Why 3%? That was the average pay increase last year in the private sector. The House Armed Services Committee countered with its own recommendation — a 3.5% increase for 2008, plus increases in 2009 through 2012 […]

Bush has vetoed the spending bill that includes the Iraq timeline. The veto will save us $124.2 billion dollars that we don’t have - most of which was requested by the President.
And the timeline veto? Democrats, moderate Republicans and the overwhelming majority of Americans want this war ended.

U.S. AID Director Randall Tobias resigned yesterday after admitting that he has used the services of a Washington prostitute. Making an otherwise hum-drum news item more interesting is the fact that Tobias oversaw a controversial policy advocated by the religious right that any US-based group receiving anti-AIDS funding take an anti-prostitution “loyalty oath.” […]
