Scumbags In Utah Push Abortion Ban

The scumbag lawmakers in Utah are no better than those in South Dakota.

The following quote says it all!!

"I'm excited to take this challenge to the Supreme Court," said sponsoring Rep. Paul Ray, R-Clearfield. "We're known for our family values and our children. We have the opportunity to lead the nation."

He's excited!! He's excited about bringing an unconstitutional law in front of the Supreme Court in an attempt to overturn a 34 year old law. He's excited about spending the money of Utah taxpayers for this unconstitutional law. He's excited about attempting to deny women the right to control their own bodies. He's excited!! You're known for your family values? Do you tell your wives and daughters that they're second-class citizens? If you think that women don't have a right to control their own bodies, then your wives and children are second-class using your thinking.

"This is the most important legislation that I could possibly be involved with in the entire time I'm a state legislator," said Sandstrom. "We're talking about preserving the sanctity of human life. The state of Utah should lead the charge."

I can think of far more important things you could be involved in. For starters, the state of Utah has the death penalty. You should be working to ban the death penalty. After all, isn't the sanctity of life your priority? You can't be pro-life and pro-death penalty because that would make you a hypocrite!! Gee, imagine that!! You should be working to impeach the President. You should be working to bring your state's troops home from Iraq and Afghanistan. You should be working to prevent a war with Iran. You should be working on improving health care. You should be working on improving education. You should be working on improving the environment. You should be working on these things instead of trying to control women which is exactly what you're attempting to do by pushing this law.

Eagle Forum Secretary Marianne Christensen, the only member of the public to speak for the bill, said unborn babies need lawmakers to defend them. She predicted divine retribution if abortions continue.

"We are a nation founded with divine providence. We will continue to prosper if we adhere to principles that will cause those blessings to fall upon our heads. If we degenerate to the point where we kill our own offspring, that's not something God is going to tolerate for long," Christensen warned.

Oh here we go again with the God argument. Roe vs. Wade was decided 34 years ago. That's 34 years since abortion was legal in this country. "God" has "tolerated" it this long. God, I hate these people. I swear these people are such ignorant bitches, especially the women. Do you not understand Ms. Christensen? Do you not understand that if this is allowed to happen, women are going to seek abortions anyway? Do you not understand that women are going to die as a result of seeking illegal abortions? Do you not care that you as a woman are being treated as a second-class citizen? Do you not care that you as a woman will no longer have a right to control your own body, and will no longer be allowed to make medical decisions for yourself? Do you not care at all? Do you enjoy being the property of a man? Because if you think this is a good idea, you agree with it all!! You are a disgrace to women!!

We are a nation founded with divine providence? What the hell is that supposed to mean? Oh, apparently God founded this nation. Nevermind that God hasn't existed in a gazillion years, if at all. "God" spit on this country when Republicans were given power. "God" spit on this country when pro-lifers were allowed to speak. "God" spit on this country, period!! Religious people are so disgusting with the shit, it's not even funny!! You make me sick!!

Like South Dakota, Utah will get a fight. The women of Utah aren't going to hand over their rights just because some religious whacks in power think that they have a right to deny women rights. Prepare to spend all the money in the world because you're going to lose. We'll see you in court!!

South Dakota Scumbags At It Again!!

I'm absolutely sick of these bastards and bitches. Yeah, I called them bastards and bitches because that's exactly what they are!!

The latest attempt to ban abortion would be laughable if it weren't sickening. Funny, but I thought the people of South Dakota spoke in November. They voted down the abortion ban. Apparently, lawmakers from South Dakota don't give a shit about what the people think and want.

Listen to this bullshit!!

An abortion ban bill introduced Wednesday in the South Dakota state House would allow exceptions for rape and incest, but only if the crimes are reported to authorities with DNA evidence.

This year's bill would allow rape victims to get abortions if they report the rapes to police within 50 days. Doctors would have to confirm the report with police and would have to take blood from aborted fetuses and give that information to police for DNA testing.

In the case of incest, a doctor would have to get the woman's consent to report the crime along with the identity of the alleged perpetrator before an abortion could be performed. Blood samples from fetuses would have to be provided to police in incest cases, too.

Abortions could be done only until the 17th week of pregnancy in cases of incest and rape.

What is this bill really saying? For starters, it's saying to women that they have absolutely no control over their bodies and shouldn't be trusted to make decisions. It's being used as a bargaining chip with rape and incest victims. It's saying, you can have an abortion up until the 17th week of pregnancy but with major exceptions. You can't have an abortion after the 17th week of pregnancy. You can't have an abortion if you're a CRIME victim unless you report the crime to police, and you must do so within 50 days. You can't have an abortion unless you agree to hand over the aborted fetus for DNA testing. You can't even have an abortion until or unless the doctor confirms that you reported the crime to police. And if you're an incest victim, you can't have an abortion unless you agree to divulge the name of your abuser to the doctor.

Wow, these people really care about women!! If you believe that, I have a bridge in Iraq to sell you!!

One of the 25 sponsors, state Rep. Gordon Howie, said the rape and incest provisions are strict to ensure that women don't say they have been victims in order to obtain abortions.

"Frankly, Planned Parenthood would drive a semi truck through an exception that wasn't clearly defined," he added.

In other words, Gordon Howie thinks that women are liars. After all, he wants to make sure that women don't lie about being raped or being a victim of incest in order to have an abortion. I don't know about anyone else, but I sure as hell wouldn't lie about being raped. I wouldn't lie about being a victim of incest. It's not something that people lie about you fucking moron. Most victims of rape and incest don't want to talk about what happened to them because they blame themselves for what happened. Most victims of rape and incest don't want to talk about what happened to them because they fear their attacker. Most victims of rape and incest don't want to talk about what happened to them out of fear that they won't be believed. You fucking bastard!! Yeah, women are just going to lie about it so that they can have an abortion. Are you that fucking ignorant? Yeah, I guess you are!!

The bill carries a tougher maximum penalty for illegal abortions than last year's bill — 10 years in prison instead of five.

It would allow abortions to save women's lives and in cases in which their health would be seriously jeopardized by a continued pregnancy. However, a doctor could perform an abortion only if a doctor from another practice concurs that a woman's health is in jeopardy.

Ten years? I guess five years just wasn't severe enough!! After all, they have to set an example for the rest of America. They can't let women think for themselves, because they might get ideas, and catch on that they're not a MAN'S property. They can't let women abort fetuses. America needs those babies for important things like fighting in our illegal wars. Yeah, I'm sure these scumbags will argue that they're not going to prosecute women for having an abortion. But you just wait!! Wait until they change their minds because you know damn well that the women who have abortions will be next!!

If your life or your health is in jeopardy, you must get a second opinion before a doctor can perform the abortion? What kind of bullshit is this? If a woman dies while waiting for another doctor to agree that she'll die without an abortion, are the doctors going to be held responsible for her death? Are the ignorant bastards and bitches in the South Dakota House and Senate going to be held responsible for her death? Who is going to be held responsible for the women who die while waiting for a second opinion because of some asinine lawmakers who just can't leave the issue alone? That's what I want to know!!

These bastards and bitches from South Dakota have absolutely no business bringing this issue up again. It was settled in November by the people of that state. But I guess in America, our vote doesn't matter. In America, our opinion doesn't matter. We should just shut up, and let these fucking scumbags tell us what we can and can't do. We should just shut up, and let these fucking scumbags control our bodies because we're liars and we don't know what's best for us. You want a Roe vs. Wade fight? You're certainly going to get one because the women of South Dakota aren't going to lie down and be your bitches. You're not going to take their rights away without a fight!!

Congress Will Likely Take Up Issue Of Racial Profiling

The Congress will likely take up the issue of racial profiling. I, for one, applaud the effort to address this issue. It's about time someone does.

Sure, you'll have the idiots out there who will argue that if we don't racially profile people then we might as well just hand over this country to the terrorists. Oh wait, here's one now!!

Peter Gadiel, of Kent, Conn., president of 9/11 Families for a Secure America, mocked the legislation.

"The 9/11 atrocity was committed by 19 young single men from Arab nations. If you want to hand this country over to terrorists, why don't you say it right out front?" said Gadiel, whose son, James, died in the attacks on the World Trade Center. "We don't have to worry about 80-year-old ladies with bleach-blonde hair and southern accents."

I always love the argument from the other side. It's always, "If you don't agree with our position, you're a terrorist sympathizer. You want to hand this country over to the terrorists. You don't care about America. You hate America. You support terrorism. You're a traitor." I could go on forever with the same old garbage that comes out of the mouths of people like this.

When you think that people who speak out against racial profiling want to hand this country over to terrorists, you're an idiot and you deserve to be labeled as such. When you make comments like "We don't have to worry about 80-year-old ladies with bleach-blonde hair and southern accents," you're an idiot and you deserve to be labeled as such.

This is not about 80-year-old ladies with bleach-blonde hair and southern accents. This is about racial profiling. It's unethical. It's unlawful. It's repulsive. Why aren't white people targeted? Oh yeah, they're not the "typical" terrorist so we don't have to worry about them. It's those damn Muslims that we have to be concerned about. After all, every Muslim is a terrorist. Every Muslim wants to destroy America. Don't you know that? Nevermind that we had our own little terrorist right here in the good old U.S.A. named Timothy McVeigh. Wait, wasn't he a white boy who had been in the military? Nah, he must have been one of those Muslims!! He wasn't? Well shoot!!

Timothy McVeigh is a good example of why racial profiling is NOT okay. While we're so busy profiling Muslims because they "fit" the profile of a terrorist, what's to stop another Timothy McVeigh from flying right below our radar? Nothing!! And people like Peter Gadiel will continue to insist that it's not the good old white boys who are the terrorists, it's only those evil Muslims.

The Adults Are Back In The White House? You Could Have Fooled Me!!

Do you remember when Bush was selected as President? He made a comment about how the adults would now be back in the White House. Really? You could have fooled me!! Read the latest comment from Cheney.

When pressed to react to personal criticism from people with whom he has worked before, Cheney said: "Well, I'm vice president and they're not."

Wow!! That sounds so adult-like doesn't it? It reminds me of little children arguing on the playground. It's like a child saying to another child, "My daddy's richer than yours. He's a doctor. Your daddy is just a .....!" You fill in the blank!! Then the child sticks out his or her tongue, and runs away.

Don't forget, the adults are back in the White House!! Grow up already!! This is what's running our country. Good Lord!!

U.S. To Criticize Israel Over Cluster Bombs Used In Lebanon

HELLO!! The United States provided these cluster bombs to Israel. Now they're going to bitch about how they were used.

I say, bitch away. But don't pretend that the U.S. government is completely innocent. They provided the cluster bombs to Israel. Did they honestly think that when they gave them the bombs that they weren't going to be used? That was never going to happen. If the U.S. hadn't provided Israel with these bombs in the first place, the U.S. wouldn't be bitching about Israel "defying" them.

What exactly was the "agreement" between Israel and the United States? Was it something along these lines:

U.S.: "We'll give you the cluster bombs. Only use them when we tell you to so that you don't make us look bad. Only use them where we tell you to so that you don't make us look bad."

Israel: "We'll use them wherever we want and against anyone that we want because we're just "defending" ourselves against people who want to see the destruction of Israel."

U.S.: "We recognize Israel's right to defend itself. Use them. Just don't implicate us because that would be bad."

The Times reported some midlevel Pentagon and State Department officials contended Israel violated U.S. prohibitions on using cluster munitions against populated areas.

Other officials in the two departments argue Israel used the arms in self-defense to stop Hezbollah's rocket attacks, which would amount to a technical violation at most.

Cluster bombs are small explosive devices that are released from a projectile and are dispersed and supposed to explode on hitting the ground. But many remain unexploded. More than 20 people have been killed and 70 wounded by cluster bombs since the end of the war in August. Israel has said it only deploys them in accordance with international law.

Technical violation? When you deliberately drop cluster bombs on innocent civilians, you're not targeting Hezbollah. When you deliberately don't destroy the bombs that you've dropped on innocent civilians, you're not targeting Hezbollah. When you leave them there knowing that innocent people are going to be killed, you're not targeting Hezbollah. And it's not a technical violation. It's called murder!!

Israel only deployed them in accordance with international law? First of all, Israel invaded another country, in violation of international law. Therefore, they didn't deploy them in accordance with international law. They violated the law. But they don't care. It doesn't matter how many people Israel kills. It doesn't matter how many people are hurt by the actions of Israel. They're always going to justify it by saying they were just defending themselves. Those who fight back are the criminals!! And if cluster bombs are so great and wonderful, why is it that people are trying to get them banned? If they do no harm, why are people dying?

The Times quoted David Siegel, a spokesman for the Israeli Embassy in Washington, as saying Israel "provided a detailed response to the administration's request for information" on its use of cluster munitions "to halt Hezbollah's unprovoked rocket attacks against our civilian population centers."

"Israel suffered heavy casualties in these attacks and acted as any government would in exercise of its right to self-defense," Siegel added.

Israel suffered heavy casualities? Bullshit!! The Israeli military killed far more Lebanese than the number of Israeli's that were killed by Hezbollah. Let's start telling the truth here people. Stop spreading the same old bullshit when it comes to Israel. The Israeli military and Israeli government are by no means innocent in any of this!!

Bitch away U.S.!! But don't act like you're innocent either because you're not!! If it weren't for you, the Israeli military wouldn't have had cluster bombs to drop on innocent Lebanese civilians. And we wouldn't be having this discussion right now!!

Priest On The Run After Sexual Assault

Oh those Catholic priests are just so great, aren't they? The latest in the sexual assault saga that has enveloped the Catholic Church takes a little different turn. This time, a priest "allegedly" sexually assaulted an adult instead of a child. Wow, that's a change!!

In all seriousness, this isn't a laughing matter. The priest needs to be caught. He needs to be arrested. He needs to be tried. He needs to be convicted if he is guilty. He needs to be punished. I'm tired of hearing about how these priests are protected by the Catholic Church, right on up to the Vatican. They don't need to be moved to different parishes. They need to be in jail where they belong!! While the Catholic Church is busy protecting them, nobody is protecting the people that these criminals are preying upon.

I can't wait for the day when law enforcement stops handling these criminals with "kid gloves." They need to be treated like every other pedophile or rapist. If you do the crime, you do the time. It's as simple as that. They shouldn't be treated differently simply because they're a "religious" person.

King George Speaks, And Authorizes "Capture Or Kill" Policy For Iranians Found In Iraq.

King George will stop at nothing to get his war with Iran.

He has authorized a "Capture or Kill" policy when it comes to Iranians who are found in Iraq. It doesn't take a genius to know exactly what "option" the U.S. military is going to use when it comes to Iranians found in Iraq. I'm sure we'll hear something along the lines of this:

"They were shooting at us. In order to protect ourselves and innocent civilians, we had no choice but to shoot back."

"They were planting roadside bombs. When we approached them, they attempted to flee and we felt that there was no other option but to shoot."

"We had them in custody after witnessing them planting bombs. But they attempted to escape so we were left with no choice."

"They attacked us. We were just defending ourselves."

"We were just protecting the American people so that they don't have to fight the Iranians on U.S. soil."

I'm sure it will sound a little something like that. Never mind the fact that these Iranians will have done none of the above. Never mind the fact that these Iranians will have been in Iraq for peaceful means. Never mind that!! You see, we're supposed to believe that all Iranians are bad, evil-doers. We're supposed to hate Iranians. I'm sure that King George will come up with some bullshit story about how the Iranians were behind 9/11. After all, all the "evil-doers" in the world were behind 9/11. Let's just forget about our little old pals the Saudi's who actually were behind 9/11 if you believe the official version of events. What was that figure? Oh yeah!! Fifteen of the nineteen hijackers came from Saudi Arabia. But hey, who cares when you can blame everyone else!!

Don't forget, King George is now the "Decision Maker." To hell with anything someone else has to say. King George is The Decision Maker formerly known as The Decider, and he's itching for a war with Iran. Mark my words!! He's going to present some trumped up bullshit like he did with Iraq, and then he's going to order the illegal destruction of yet another country.

Religious And "Moral" Hypocrites

Don't you love them? I do!! I love to hate them!! So, what exactly am I talking about? I'm talking about the movie Hounddog which stars Dakota Fanning.

"Hounddog" is the story of Lewellen, a girl played by 12-year-old Dakota Fanning, who is growing up in the 1960s South. She is a free-spirit obsessed with Elvis Presley and has little supervision by her abusive father and alcoholic grandmother.

In the film, there is a scene in which Lewellen is raped. However, the actual rape isn't seen. All you see is Fanning's face and a hand. But the very fact that the character is a child and is raped has these religious and "moral" hypocrites bitching, and screaming "EXPLOITATION."

Even before the first screening of "Hounddog" at the Sundance Film Festival this week, a Christian film critic, citing Fanning's age, decried the movie as child abuse, and Roman Catholic activist Bill Donohue called for a federal investigation.

Leave it to those religious and "moral" people to bitch. I especially love that a Roman Catholic activist is demanding a federal investigation. Let me ask a few questions. When the wonderful priests and nuns were actually raping children, where was the outcry? Where was the demand for a federal investigation into actual REAL rapes of children? Where was the demand that something be done to stop it? Where was the demand for a boycott of Catholic churches? Oh, you don't have an answer? I'll tell you where all of this outcry was. It was nowhere, except probably amongst the victims and their families. These so-called activists don't give a damn about real child abuse or rape victims. They're too busy bitching about a damn movie to pay any attention to actual victims.

Ted Baehr, chairman of the Christian Film and Television Commission and publisher of the Web site movieguide.org, claims "Hounddog" breaks federal child-pornography law. He said the law covers material that "appears" to show minors engaging in sexually explicit conduct.

"Even if they're not actually performing the explicit act, we are dealing with a legal issue here," he said.

Baehr said Fanning is being exploited in the film, and that it should be considered an outrage.

"Children at 12 do not have the ability to make the types of decisions that we're talking about here," he said. "If we're offended by some comedian's racial slur, why aren't we offended by somebody taking advantage of a 12-year-old child?"

Has Ted Baehr seen the film? Most likely he hasn't. If he hasn't, he has no business commenting on what is or isn't shown in the film. For him to also suggest that Fanning is being exploited is so beyond ridiculous it's not even funny. If anyone is exploiting this child, it's the people who are attempting to further their religious and "moral" agendas.

Donohue, president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, said he has asked the U.S. Justice Department to investigate whether anti-pornography laws have been broken.

How about an investigation into pedophile priests and nuns Mr. Donohue? How about an investigation into the cover-up of the crimes of these pedophile priests and nuns by Catholic churches all around the country, and straight on up to the Vatican?

Nah, these people would rather bitch about a movie. They would rather bitch about a character that isn't even real. They would rather bitch about a rape that never took place. They would rather bitch about "fantasy" as opposed to reality. The reality is, there are real child rape victims out there. There are real children out there that are being exploited on a daily basis. Where's the attention on these children? Nowhere because we're too busy bitching about a movie and a child actress who plays a character. If this movie can bring the spotlight on real victims, I say kudos to the actors/actresses, the movie, and the director. More power to them!!

Stop your bitching, and take on the real criminals instead of demanding the prosecution of a movie director!! Otherwise, shut up and go away!!

A Divided Vatican: It's About Time!!

The Vatican is divided. What's a Pope to do? Perhaps he could dig out his whip, and snap it in the direction of the "misguided." Or maybe he'll just toss Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini out on his ass.

Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini, the influential former archbishop of Milan, said on Sunday that terminally ill patients should be given the right to refuse treatments and that the doctors who assist them should be protected by law.

Ooh, bad little Cardinal. You aren't towing the ridiculous Vatican line!! I'm sure that you will be punished severely for your insolence.

Although the Vatican has agreed that protracted treatments for the terminally ill can be ended by doctors if no cure is possible, the Vicariate of Rome denied Welby's family permission to hold a Catholic funeral, claiming Welby's "desire to end his life, expressed frequently and publicly, is contrary to Catholic doctrine".

Wow, I didn't know that the Vatican makes the laws in Italy. Well, what the hell am I saying? The Vatican thinks it makes the laws in every country, especially when it comes to issues such as end of life wishes, gay rights, and abortion. So, this really is nothing new here!! The point is, how dare the Vatican "agree" that terminally ill patients can have their treatments ended if there is no cure. It's not the Vatican's place to "agree." It's not their business!!

The case divided Italian politics, with government coalition parties such as the Radical Party defending Dr Riccio's action and Luca Volonte, from the conservative Christian Democrat Union, calling it "murder".

The last time I looked, it's not murder when a patient requests to die. If someone has expressed a desire to die because he or she can't be treated and there is absolutely ZERO chance for recovery, it's not murder if his or her wishes are carried out.

I'll have to remember to file a living will. I don't want some priest at a hospital or the Pope telling me what I can or can't do when it comes to any medical treatment I may or may not want. I don't want some priest at a hospital or the Pope telling my family what they can or can't do when it comes to any medical treatment I may or may not want. I don't want their religious beliefs imposed on me. I have a right to die just like everyone else has a right to die. I have a right to express that wish to my family, should the time ever come where they would have to make a decision like that.

The Pope appeared to refer to the Welby case in a Christmas Day speech when he said: "What are we to think of those who choose death in the belief that they are celebrating life?"

The Pope can think what he will of me, and I shall do the same of him. It's not the business of the Pope if someone decides to end medical treatment. It's not the business of the Pope if someone expresses a desire to die. It's not the business of the Pope to butt into the personal lives of people around the world. If he wants to do something good and decent, he should concern himself with pedophile priests and nuns. That's where his "nose" should be!!

34 Years Later And Pro-Lifers Are Still Ignorant Hypocrites

As I sit here on the 34th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade, one thing is abundantly clear. Pro-lifers are still ignorant hypocrites. I'm putting out the challenge to pro-lifers right now. Send me a comment. Tell me why you're pro-life. I don't want to hear the pro-life mantra. I want to know why YOU are pro-life, and what being pro-life means.

I put out this challenge because I've read some blogs that are written by people who profess to be pro-life. Yet, they're truly not. They claim to respect life right up until "natural death," even though they believe in war and the death penalty. They make no qualms about those issues. But they certainly like to preach about abortion. They act as though they know everything about abortion, and why a woman or girl makes the CHOICE to have one.

I want to know why people are pro-life, and what that means because the people writing these blogs certainly aren't pro-life. By all means, COMMENT!!

At Least 24 "Investments" In One Day

At least twenty four "investments" in one day. Still think the war in Iraq is worth it? TWENTY FOUR!! That's twenty four people who are now dead thanks to George Bush and his illegal war. That's twenty four families that have lost a family member. That's TWENTY FOUR too many!!

But remember what Condi Rice said, the U.S. "investments" are worth it!! George Bush could send millions of troops to Iraq, and it won't make a difference. The country of Iraq is engaged in a civil war, and the troops are caught up in it. Bush doesn't care about the troops. If every single troop member was killed in Iraq, Bush still wouldn't leave. He'd just grab more people from the U.S., and ship them over to Iraq.

It's time to draft the Bush twins. If Bush wants to win his war on "terror" so badly, Babs Jr. and Jenna need to strap on a gun, lace up their boots, and hop a flight to Iraq. Anything less is unacceptable!!


Media reports now put the number of U.S. dead from incidents on Saturday at 25. That's 25 "investments" in one day. Boy, things are just looking up for our troops and Iraq aren't they? Yeah right!!

Jenna Bush: Author?

Oh what a riot!! Jenna Bush, an author!! What's the title of her book going to be called, Underage Drinking: How To Get Away With It Like I Did?

Seriously though, she's shopping around a book idea. It's supposedly about charity events that she participated in while in Latin America. I guess if you consider closing land deals for your daddy a charity event, okay!!

I see the book having a bright future, on the $.99 table that is!! Don't embarrass yourself little girl. You should just stick to reading The Hungry Little Caterpillar like your daddy does!!

China Shoots Down Their Own OLD Satellite!! U.S. Bitches As Usual!!

Last week, China shot down their own OLD satellite. The United States bitched as usual!!

I like this part of the story the best.

Under a space policy authorized by President Bush in August, the United States asserts a right to "freedom of action in space" and says it will "deter others from either impeding those rights or developing capabilities intended to do so."

The policy includes the right to "deny, if necessary, adversaries the use of space capabilities hostile to U.S. national interests."

Not only does the King think he can run the entire world. He also thinks that the United States owns space!! Too hilarious!! This moron basically declared that the United States owns space, and can deny anyone access to it. Wow!!

To the United States I say, quit your bitching!! China can shoot down anything that they want to as long as it belongs to them. The United States doesn't have a right to tell them otherwise. You want to lodge a complaint? Go ahead!! It's not going to stop China from doing anything. They can do whatever they want!!

I also love the "what-if" theories running around. Talk about paranoid!!

"If we, for instance, got into a conflict over Taiwan, one of the first things they'd probably do would be to shoot down all of our lower Earth-orbit spy satellites, putting out our eyes," said John Pike of globalsecurity.org, a Web site that compiles information on worldwide security issues.

"The thing that is surprising and disturbing is that [the Chinese] have chosen this moment to demonstrate a military capability that can only be aimed at the United States," he said.

For instance? Does Mr. Pike know something that nobody else does? Are we itching to go to war with China and use Taiwan as an excuse? Sounds about right, using Bush logic!! Oh no!! The first thing they'd probably do is shoot down all of our spy satellites. Oh, that would be such a shame!! I mean, after all, we wouldn't be able to spy on other countries. Oh, that would be just tragic!!

The Chinese shot down their own damn weather satellite that happened to be really old. Stop losing control of your bowel movements, and snap back into reality. Not everything another country does is an attempt to intimidate the United States. Not everything another country does is an attempt to provoke the United States into a conflict. They shot down their OWN FUCKING SATELLITE. GET OVER IT!!

Coerced Testimony, Hearsay: This Is Acceptable? In What Country? Oh Yeah, The United States!!

Yes, that's right!! The Pentagon and the White House as well as the Congress think this is completely acceptable.

In a normal court of law, coerced testimony and hearsay is not allowed. Yet, the President felt the need to push through legislation in the last Congress that would make this legal. I ask, what planet are we living on? I mean seriously, this is absolutely asinine. This is what makes America great? Talk about a crock of shit!! But hey, either you're with us or against us right? Isn't that what the KING said?

So let me lay this out for you.

The procedures outlined in the manual "will ensure that unlawful enemy combatants suspected of war crimes and certain other offenses are prosecuted before regularly constituted courts affording all the judicial guarantees which are recognized as indispensable by civilized people," said Principal Deputy General Counsel Dan Dell'Orto.

There are several things wrong right there with that statement. First of all, it's stating that these are "unlawful enemy combatants." It's essentially stating their guilt right there. Second of all, it states that they will be afforded all of the judicial guarantees as given to civilized people. Bullshit!! These "enemy combatants" haven't been afforded anything thus far. And this is not a country of civilized people. We are NOT CIVILIZED!! When we hold people incommunicado for years without access to anything that is considered humane, we are NOT CIVILIZED. When we torture people in order to get information that we want, regardless of the validity of that information, we are NOT CIVILIZED. When we think that we can invade any damn country that we want, we are NOT CIVILIZED.

Dell'Orto said the manual calls for the accused to be presumed innocent and requires that convictions be based on guilt proven beyond a reasonable doubt.

When you start off with a statement making reference to the "innocent" as being enemy combatants, you're not making a presumption of innocence. You're already labeling them as guilty. Guilt proven beyond a reasonable doubt? How is that possible when you're going to allow hearsay and coerced testimony? Oh yeah, that's right!! Even though it's coerced testimony or hearsay, it must be true!! Right?????

Independent counsel will "represent defendants zealously and protect against even the appearance of unlawful influence" in a jury system comparable to that used by general courts-martial, he said.

Independent counsel? And who exactly are these people going to be? Are they going to be counsel that is appointed by the White House? Are they going to be counsel appointed by the Pentagon? Independent my ass!! These people haven't been afforded access to legal counsel since they've been detained. They're certainly not going to be afforded "independent" legal counsel now.

Defendants are further to be provided with evidence before its admission in court, he said.

They haven't been provided with evidence justifying their detention thus far. They're not going to be provided with evidence before trial either.

In addition, the accused must be granted "a reasonable opportunity" to obtain evidence and witnesses," and are granted the right to protection against self-incrimination, he said.

And how does the Pentagon suggest they do this? They're not allowed to meet with legal counsel now. How are they going to obtain evidence and find witnesses if they're locked up for about 23 hours a day, and when they're not locked up they're being "interrogated?" Oh yeah, they'll have that one hour a day in which to gather all the evidence and witnesses needed to prove their innocence.

Protection against self-incrimination? Where was their right to that protection when they were being interrogated and tortured? Oh, it didn't apply then? Okay!!

Brig. Gen. Thomas Hemingway, a legal adviser to the Office of Military Commissions, told reporters that the manual provides for a "clear prohibition of evidence obtained by torture" if it was obtained after December 30, 2005. But if it was obtained before that time, and if the judge determines that it is reliable, it may be admitted, he said.

Oh really? Well, considering that most if not all of these people have been detained prior to December 30, 2005 and were likely tortured, it's a safe bet that any "evidence" obtained will be presented.

No evidence -- not even classified evidence -- will be admissible that the accused has not seen, but the manual lays out procedures under which the government could ask the judge to rule on whether "certain matters should be redacted," or summarized or replaced with substitute evidence, Hemingway said.

Again, bullshit!! They haven't shown these people any evidence that the government supposedly has against them, and they never will. Nothing is going to stop the government from declaring that they did show this evidence to the accused, and who would dare question the honesty of the government? They're not going to have "independent" counsel to argue this on their behalf.

This is complete and utter bullshit!! The United States of America is not a civilized country. We don't have civilized people living in this country. We don't have civilized people running this country. This is not about protecting the national security of this country. This is not about protecting the American people from people who wish to do us harm. This is about getting away with illegal wars. This is about getting away with torturing people. This is about getting away with killing people. This is about a country that has gone to hell at the hands of a man who thinks he's King. Think I'm wrong? Just wait until you're the next person to be held incommunicado permanently. Just wait!! Think it's never going to happen? Think again!!

Missing Children

We would like to take this opportunity to switch the focus of our blog for a little while. We will continue to blog about our "favorite" subjects. However, we felt that we would like to put some major focus on a very important issue that the media never talks about until something happens. That issue is MISSING CHILDREN!! We would like to encourage readers to take a few minutes to visit the National Center For Missing & Exploited Children website at www.missingkids.com.

Take a few minutes to look at the pictures of the missing. You could be the key to bringing these children and adults home to their families.

Oh, Smell The Hypocrisy!!

I must say that I'm having a hard time finding sympathy for this girl. I'm having a hard time, not because she's Catholic. But to find sympathy for this situation is saying it's okay to have a double standard.

When some schools in the UK were demanding that Muslim girls remove or not wear their hijabs (head scarves) in school, they were pretty much told by the rest of the world to shut up and comply. After all, it was labeled a "safety" and "social" issue. Now this girl has been told to remove her crucifix, and the shit has hit the fan.

I can't find sympathy for her situation. I just can't because I think that people have a double standard. Her mother said, "I was brought up to be proud of my religion and we believe it is Sam's right to be proud of what she believes in and wear a symbol of her faith. It's a total disgrace."

Where is the outrage when Muslim girls are told to remove their hijabs? Nowhere!! Aren't they allowed to be proud of their religion, and should be allowed to wear what they believe to be something that reflects their faith? Or is that right only afforded to Christians? Where's the outrage when pretty much every country in Europe wants to ban the wearing of the hijab? Nowhere to be found!! But, we're supposed to be outraged and pissed off because a Catholic girl is ordered to remove her crucifix in school?

I don't think so!! I can smell the hypocrisy, and it stinks!!

Ad inferno con voi!! Al infierno con usted!! À l'enfer avec vous!! Zur Hölle mit Ihnen!! К аду с вами!!

Ad inferno con voi!! Al infierno con usted!! À l'enfer avec vous!! Zur Hölle mit Ihnen!! К аду с вами!! Regardless of what language you say it in, it all means the same thing. I just said to hell with you!! So what has me all fired up? Ever since I turned on the tv on Friday afternoon and saw the news out of Missouri, I've been pissed off. What I don't understand is why others aren't pissed off as well.

In case you have absolutely no clue what I'm talking about, I'll fill you in. On Friday, William Benjamin Ownby and Shawn Hornbeck who are from Missouri and had both been kidnapped were found alive in Missouri. William had been missing for 4 days. Shawn had been missing for over 4 years. The media coverage of the story is absolutely insane, and bordering on completely asinine in some respects. That's where I get pissed off.

Although any kidnapping is absolutely horrible and I feel for all involved, William Ownby was missing for only 4 days. Shawn Hornbeck was missing for over 4 years. Yet Ownby's kidnapping and rescue has been played up to the hilt. It's like the media is glorifying this kid, and acting like he is the coolest thing since string cheese was invented. On the other hand, Hornbeck's kidnapping and rescue was taking pretty much a backseat to Ownby. Over the last couple of days, the media has treated this child like he's the scum of the Earth. With all due respect to William, he was only missing for 4 days. That's four days of his life that he can never get back, four days too many I might add. But Shawn has over four years of his life that was stolen from him and he can never get that back. He had the rest of his childhood literally stolen from him, and he can't reclaim it. He can't go back and do it all over again. With all due respect to William, he is going to have a far easier time returning to his normal life. Shawn, on the other hand, is going to have a harder time returning to any kind of normal life if he can ever do that.

Not surprisingly, the media continues to treat Shawn as though he's to blame for his kidnapping. They ask the same question over and over again to anyone who is willing to listen, why didn't he try to escape? Then they bring on some "experts" who claim to know exactly why he didn't try to escape. The media and "experts" need to shut their mouths. They know ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!! They don't know that Shawn didn't attempt to escape. They don't know what was going through this child's mind for over 4 years. They don't know what he was being told by his kidnapper. They know absolutely nothing, and to profess otherwise is completely asinine and totally unprofessional.

To make matters worse, the media has seen fit to bring the 15 minutes of fame seekers out of the woodwork. On one network, they brought out the landlord who says he never spoke with the boy or anything. Yet he professed to know for a fact that some people told Shawn that he looked just like "that Hornbeck boy," and Shawn just laughed it off with a "Whatever!!" Then on another network they brought out some of Shawn's "friends" over the past 4+ years. They claimed that they would constantly be seeing stories on tv about Shawn being missing, and he would never have a reaction to seeing himself on tv.

The point of my rant, and a well-deserved one at that, is simple!! The media needs to leave Shawn Hornbeck and his family alone. He and his family have been through hell for over 4 years. They don't need media scrutiny adding to that hell. They need to stop trying to uncover why he didn't try to flee, if that's even true. That's Shawn's and the Hornbeck family's business. It's not the business of the entire world. If they decide to share his story, that's their business. The media needs to stop trying to force it out of him for their sick sense of enjoyment so that they'll have something to talk about.

To the media and all the 15 minutes of fame seekers out there I say to you: Ad inferno con voi!! Al infierno con usted!! À l'enfer avec vous!! Zur Hölle mit Ihnen!! К аду с вами!! To hell with you!! This boy and his family have been through enough, and they certainly don't need any of you adding to their stress!!

Only In America!!

Only in America!! Just when you thought that Americans couldn't get more idiotic and reckless than they already are, they go and issue death threats to pizza employees.

So what sparked this latest act of violent stupidity? A pizza chain that operates in Texas and has establishments in four other states has decided to accept Mexican pesos as a form of payment. Oh the horror!! Imagine that, accepting pesos!!

Now when the people are found who issued the death threats, are they going to be charged as a terrorist? After all, threatening the life of someone can be considered terrorism. Are they going to be removed from their homes, sent off to places unknown, and never heard from again? If not, why not? That's what we do to terrorists in this country. Since I still believe in being civilized, I want to see these death threat issuers locked up and the key thrown away for a very long time. Perhaps that will deter others from being as idiotic as these people have been. But since this isn't a civilized country anymore, who knows what will happen to these people. Probably nothing because they're being "patriotic." I'm sure George Bush will weigh in on the issue. Perhaps it will go a little something like this.

"Pesos? Who the fuck has pesos? Did I give them permission to have pesos? Pesos? This is the United States of Ammerika (that's America for everyone else), not the United States of Mexico. You don't use pesos in Ammerika. You use credit, he...he...he...*smirk*" "Dick, Unka Dick...Who the fuck told these people that they could use pesos? Where's my peanut butter and jelly sanwich (that's sandwich for everyone else)?"

I Smell Another Plea Agreement For A Killer & Rapist

I smell another plea agreement for a killer and a rapist.

An Army private charged with the slaughter of an Iraqi family was diagnosed as a homicidal threat by a military mental health team three months before the attack.

Can you say, mental defect? I know you can!! I'll bet you anything that this son of a bitch is going to declare that he was mentally insane at the time, and that he couldn't have known that what he did at the time was wrong. Wanna place a bet on what he pleads?

I'll also guess that they'll accept his mentally insane plea, sentence him to some bullshit 9 month sentence or so, and order him to seek counseling. Meanwhile, a 14 year old girl has been raped, murdered, set on fire, her family has been killed, and their house was burned down to cover up the crimes by these military assholes.

Justice for the victims? Hardly!! But hey, war is hell right? Things like this happen in war right? We need to cut the military some slack right? Wrong!! But why should we give a damn about what the military does to innocent people in our name? After all, they're fighting for our freedom right? Bullshit!!

When Are Military Members Going To Really Be Held Accountable For Their Crimes?

As a "civilian," if I were to kill three people and lie to investigators about what happened, my ass would be locked up for life or I'd be facing the death penalty. So, I ask the following questions. When are military members going to really be held accountable for their crimes? Why do they get to cut deals, and essentially get a slap on the wrist? Take this story for example.

This soldier was charged with killing three Iraqi detainees, and accused of lying to cover up the crime. Here's what happened:

Spc. Juston R. Graber, 21, is accused with three others from the division's 187th Infantry Regiment of killing detainees during a raid of a suspected al-Qaida stronghold near Samarra, about 60 miles north of Baghdad.

They also were accused of trying to deceive investigators by saying the detainees were fleeing when they were shot.

He entered a plea of guilty to aggravated assault with a dangerous weapon which is a lesser charge. He had been charged with murder, attempted premeditated murder, and conspiracy to commit premeditated murder. He was sentenced to only 9 months in a military jail because he made the guilty plea to the lesser charge.

Under Tuesday's plea agreement, Graber's rank was reduced from specialist to private. The judge ruled that Graber's sentence could be reduced to six months if he cooperates with prosecutors. He also was ordered to forfeit all pay and allowances for six months.

Ooh, big deal. He gets his rank reduced rather than getting thrown out of the military. He could have his sentence shortened if he cooperates. And he has to give up all his pay and benefits for six months. Meanwhile, there are at least three people who are dead that didn't have to be. I ask again, when are military members going to really be held accountable for their crimes? The answer is simple, never!! We'll continue to make excuses for them. We'll continue to say that war is hell and things like this happen.

If this happened in "civilian" life, there would be no plea agreements. There would be no bullshit sentences of 9 months or less. "Civilians" would be going to jail for the rest of their lives, or they would be spending the next 20+ years on death row. We need to stop giving the military preferential treatment, and start holding them accountable. We need to stop entering into plea agreements that result in little or no punishment. They need to be treated just like any other criminal would be treated. When you commit murder, you should be spending a minimum of 25 years to life in jail, not 9 months.

And to his mother I say this, wipe that smirk off your damn face. He may have saved his own ass by pleading guilty to a lesser charge. But that still doesn't change the fact that your son murdered someone. While your son can come home to you, the people he murdered can't go home to their families if they're even still alive. Your son isn't a hero. He's a killer!!

Where's The Outrage Here?

People are bitching, and rightfully so about the Yale singers being beaten up in San Francisco. Yet, we don't hear a damn thing about this story. I want to know, where's the outrage here?

Dead student's body defaced with anti-gay comments
The Associated PressPublished: January 9, 2007

HOUSTON: As Phanta "Jack" Phoummarath lay dying of alcohol poisoning, members of the club he was trying to join defaced his body with anti-gay epithets and obscene drawings, according to a medical examiner's report.

"It was disgusting and despicable behavior," said Houston attorney Randy Sorrels, who represents Phoummarath's family.

Sorrels said Phoummarath was not gay. The 18-year-old freshman from Houston, who wanted to join the Lambda Phi Epsilon fraternity at the University of Texas at Austin, died Dec. 10, 2005, after ingesting large amounts of alcohol at a party at the fraternity house. The medical examiner reported his blood-alcohol content was more than five times higher than the level needed to prove intoxication in Texas.

Phoumarrath was found dead the day after the party in the bedroom where he passed out the night before.

Party-goers had used green and black markers to write "FAG," "I'm gay" and "I AM FAT" on Phoummarath's head, face, torso, legs and feet. Someone added several drawings of naked men and women, Dr. Roberto Bayardo of the medical examiner's office reported.

According to a probable cause affidavit, Phoummarath died after a heavy night of drinking in which fraternity members chanted for him and six other pledges to finish as many as eight bottles of vodka, whiskey, rum and other drinks being passed around.

A grand jury indicted three members of the Lambda Phi Epsilon fraternity last month on charges of hazing, or abusing new members, following a yearlong investigation into Phoummarath's death.

The university suspended Lambda Phi Epsilon's status as a registered student organization until 2011.

Phoumarrath's family also is suing the fraternity.

Disgusting and despicable behavior? Wrong!! It's called murder. These little frat boys killed this guy by supplying him with enough booze to kill anyone several times over. They deprived him of medical attention which could have saved his life, and instead decided to deface his body. They shouldn't be facing hazing charges or charges of abusing new members. They should be facing murder charges. Unfortunately, that's not going to happen. But I can tell you what will happen. They'll get a little slap on the wrist, and perhaps get thrown out of college although I highly doubt that. Oh, and don't forget that the frat's status as an organization has been suspended until 2011. Big fucking deal!!

These frat boys are literally getting away with murder. But hey, who cares!! After all, he has a name that many people probably can't pronounce and my guess is that he was probably not white either. So, while we're talking about some boys from Yale getting their asses beat which was completely wrong, an 18 year old man is dead simply because he wanted to join a fraternity. Somehow, I think his death deserves a little more attention than the Yale story.

Condi Rice: If I Only Had A Brain!!

Apparently someone didn't get a much needed brain for Christmas!!

Today, Condi Rice appeared before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. She made two of the most ridiculous comments I've heard in a long time.

In the hearing, which was summoned by Democratic Senator Joe Biden, Republican Senator Richard Lugar said that the United States needs to hold a dialogue with Tehran and Damascus.

Rice responded that dialogue with Iran and Syria will mean that the United States is succumbing to blackmail. Iran, according to her, will demand in exchange for aiding the US in Iraq that the US lighten up its tough stance on Tehran's nuclear program.

In like kind, Syria, Rice asserted, would demand that they US show more flexibility in its decisive stand against Damascus' involvement in Lebanese affairs, including the international tribunal of the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.

Succumbing to blackmail? The United States never blackmails anyone right? Nah, never!! We never make demands of other countries. We never seek something in return. We never do anything of the sort. Yet, this brainless bitch sits there and professes to know exactly what Iranian and Syrian officials would say if they were able to hold talks with the United States. Apparently she reads minds. If that's the case, she should seek a different job. She could be like the next Ms. Cleo!! After all, she is psychic!! Just don't let on that you're a fraud!!

Rice clarified that in the new Middle East, there is a "new alignment of forces." On one side are "reformers and responsible leaders who seek to advance their interests peacefully, politically and diplomatically," including Saudi Arabia, the Gulf States, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, the Palestinian Authority under Mahmoud Abbas, and Iraq.

On the other hand, she said, are "extremists of every sect and ethnicity who use violence to spread chaos, to undermine democratic governments and to impose agendas of hatred and intolerance" such as Iran, Syria, Hamas, and Hizbullah.

Responsible, peace-seeking politicians in Saudi Arabia? Perhaps she had a brain fart, because apparently she "forgot" or just decided to ignore the fact that 15 of the 19 hijackers on September 11th were from Saudi Arabia. But who cares about facts? I mean, who cares that people from Saudi Arabia came to the United States and helped kill 3,000 people in this country. That is the official story of what happened, right? Or isn't she sticking to it anymore?

What happened to our BFF Israel? Aren't they in the Middle East? Don't they have responsible, peace-seeking leaders? Aren't they always the victim of the "evil extremists?" Apparently she must have had another brain fart!!

How does that song go? If I only had a brain!! I guess Condi was a bad little girl because Santa didn't give her a brain for Christmas. Perhaps she got a lump of coal in her stocking this year!!

More Republican Jackasses

I really love Republicans, especially those who don't know what the hell they're talking about. Take a Texas Republican for example.

Freshman Sen. Dan Patrick from Houston introduced his first bill in the Texas Senate on Wednesday. It would enforce a ban on abortions in Texas if the U.S. Supreme Court decides to overturn Roe v. Wade.

The bills would ban abortion except to "prevent the death" of the mother — if Roe is overturned. They contain no exemptions for rape, incest or to protect the health of the mother.

So what these Republicans are essentially saying to the women of Texas is simple. They're saying that if you become pregnant, you're going to carry that fetus to term regardless of how you became pregnant. They're saying that they don't give a damn if you were raped. They're saying that they don't give a damn if you're a victim of incest. Hell, they're even saying that they don't give a damn if your health is at risk by carrying the fetus to term. If you're not dying, they don't care. All they care about is you popping out a full-term fetus.

Patrick argued, Texas could be perceived as a "pro-choice" state because it has laws permitting abortion for minors if their parents give their consent.

Again, I love Republicans. They demand that there are laws on the books regarding parental notification. They demand that parents give consent for their minor children to have abortions. Yet, this jackass is bitching because Texas might be "perceived as a pro-choice state" simply because it has the very laws on the books that asses like this one demand it has. Gee, you bitch about parents being allowed to know if their daughters are going to have abortions. You bitch about parents being allowed to say yes or no. But now you're bitching because such a law exists and it might make the state look bad? Make up your god damn mind!!

Finally, this is Patrick's statement that takes the cake for the biggest contradiction of the bill that he introduced.

"I want to have a law on the books that clearly says if Roe v. Wade is overturned, there will be no abortions in Texas," he said.

He introduces a bill in which a woman would be allowed to have an abortion if she were going to die because of the pregnancy. But, he wants a law on the books that says no abortions will be allowed in Texas if Roe v. Wade is overturned. Talk about contradicting yourself. Talk about being a jackass!! Which is it Mr. Patrick? Should a woman be allowed to have an abortion if she's dying because of the pregnancy? Or should she just die if Roe v. Wade is overturned? You can't have it both ways!! And if you're going to choose the latter of the two options, I expect the following to happen. When a woman dies because of this whole thing, you and everyone else who agrees with you should be arrested, charged, tried, convicted, and punished for aiding and abetting the unnecessary death of someone. There is absolutely no reason why any woman or girl should die if a pregnancy is literally killing her. There is absolutely no reason why any woman or girl should be forced to carry a child to term. There is absolutely no reason why anyone should support such bullshit. And if Mr. Patrick thinks this is okay, he should be the first one tried. Trust me when I say that if Roe v. Wade is overturned and this law is put into place in Texas, women and girls are going to die for absolutely no reason except for some asshole's religious and supposedly moral beliefs.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot. God Bless America, the land where bullshit like this is allowed to happen because jackasses who think like Mr. Patrick elect jackasses like Mr. Patrick, and every woman in America has absolutely no rights because of jackasses like Mr. Patrick. Isn't it great to be an American, especially an American woman?

Beckett Approves Of Troop "Surge"

Margaret Beckett, the British foreign secretary says that she "welcomes the U.S. troop surge."

Of course this bitch does. She doesn't have to go. She doesn't have to die. Her family doesn't have to go. They don't have to die. The British aren't sending any new troops to Iraq. So, they don't have to die. Of course this bitch welcomes the "surge." It's the U.S. troops and innocent Iraqis that are going to die because of this!!

Ain't it great?????

Laura Bush Is A Moron!!

Laura Bush is a moron. Yeah, that's right!! I called the woman a moron. Why is she a moron? I'll tell you why.

At a time when this country is going to hell rather quickly and people all around the world are dying because of the United States, this woman has the nerve to come out and talk about a god damn building restoration project.

Nobody in this country or around the world gives a damn about a building being restored. We care or should care about people dying in an illegal war. We care or should care about more people being sent to die in this illegal war. We care or should care about our rights being taken away from us. We care or should care about people being detained for absolutely no reason other than the fact that they disagree with this illegal administration. We care or should care about the fact that Laura's husband has broken the law more times than anyone can even count, and should have his ass impeached.

But hey, who am I to bitch? After all, it's a great day for Americans and future generations of Americans because a FUCKING BUILDING has been restored. WHO GIVES A DAMN!!

Michael Moore's Letter To W!! Too Hilarious!!

Below is Michael Moore's letter to W. It's beyond hilarious!!

Wednesday, January 10th, 2007
Dear Mr. President: Send Even MORE Troops (and you go, too!) ...from Michael Moore

Dear Mr. President,

Thanks for your address to the nation. It's good to know you still want to talk to us after how we behaved in November.

Listen, can I be frank? Sending in 20,000 more troops just ain't gonna do the job. That will only bring the troop level back up to what it was last year. And we were losing the war last year! We've already had over a million troops serve some time in Iraq since 2003. Another few thousand is simply not enough to find those weapons of mass destruction! Er, I mean... bringing those responsible for 9/11 to justice! Um, scratch that. Try this -- BRING DEMOCRACY TO THE MIDDLE EAST! YES!!!

You've got to show some courage, dude! You've got to win this one! C'mon, you got Saddam! You hung 'im high! I loved watching the video of that -- just like the old wild west! The bad guy wore black! The hangmen were as crazy as the hangee! Lynch mobs rule!!!

Look, I have to admit I feel very sorry for the predicament you're in. As Ricky Bobby said, "If you're not first, you're last." And you being humiliated in front of the whole world does NONE of us Americans any good.

Sir, listen to me. You have to send in MILLIONS of troops to Iraq, not thousands! The only way to lick this thing now is to flood Iraq with millions of us! I know that you're out of combat-ready soldiers -- so you have to look elsewhere! The only way you are going to beat a nation of 27 million -- Iraq -- is to send in at least 28 million! Here's how it would work:

The first 27 million Americans go in and kill one Iraqi each. That will quickly take care of any insurgency. The other one million of us will stay and rebuild the country. Simple.

Now, I know you're saying, where will I find 28 million Americans to go to Iraq? Here are some suggestions:

1. More than 62,000,000 Americans voted for you in the last election (the one that took place a year and half into a war we already knew we were losing). I am confident that at least a third of them would want to put their body where their vote was and sign up to volunteer. I know many of these people and, while we may disagree politically, I know that they don't believe someone else should have to go and fight their fight for them -- while they hide here in America.

2. Start a "Kill an Iraqi" Meet-Up group in cities across the country. I know this idea is so early-21st century, but I once went to a Lou Dobbs Meet-Up and, I swear, some of the best ideas happen after the third mojito. I'm sure you'll get another five million or so enlistees from this effort.

3. Send over all members of the mainstream media. After all, they were your collaborators in bringing us this war -- and many of them are already trained from having been "embedded!" If that doesn't bring the total to 28 million, then draft all viewers of the FOX News channel.

Mr. Bush, do not give up! Now is not the time to pull your punch! Don't be a weenie by sending in a few over-tired troops. Get your people behind you and YOU lead them in like a true commander in chief! Leave no conservative behind! Full speed ahead!

We promise to write. Go get 'em W!


Michael Moore

Good one Michael!! There are only a few minor things wrong with what you wrote. First, of the 62 million Americans who voted for Bush in 2004, not one of them still sitting at home would ever volunteer to put their pretty asses on the line. Instead, they would rather sit in front of their tv or computer screens and bitch about how the "liberal" whackjobs are hurting the troop morale. They would rather bitch about how the "liberal" whackjobs want to destroy America and are aiding and abetting the terrorists. They would rather bitch about how the "liberal" whackjobs want America to be attacked. These bitches would never volunteer to go fight a war that THEIR President illegally got this country involved in. They'd rather have someone else's kid or someone else to die for this asinine crock of shit war before they'd ever shed one ounce of their own blood.

Second, W would never lead the troops into battle. He couldn't be bothered to go to Vietnam. Hell, he couldn't even be bothered to show up for his pansy-assed duty that he was assigned to in the United States instead of going to war.

Finally, this isn't really about sending more troops to secure "victory" for the United States. I'm not sure what exactly the victory is that we're trying to achieve. That aside, this is about greed, power, and everything else under the sun. The pansy-assed politicians in D.C. are going to do nothing to stop this lunatic. They're going to do nothing to stop more troops from being sent to die in Iraq. And for what? FOR NOTHING!! Meanwhile, dumbass Americans are going to turn on their televisions tonight, surf the channels for something moronic to watch, and will not give a shit about what's going on in this country and around the world in their name.

Ooh, Big Surprise!! Condi Loves FOX News!!

Yeah, what a big shocker there!! Condi loves Fox News!!

I do have one question though. Hasn't Condi learned that you don't leave a microphone open when you're not being interviewed? Apparently not!! But who am I to argue? Tell us what you really think Condi!!

The UN And Americans: What Are They Good For?

Absolutely nothing, say it again!!

First there was Kofi Annan who had absolutely no balls when it came to standing up to the United States over anything. Now, the new U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon is proving that he's going to have no balls either when it comes to the United States and standing up to them. Ooh, big surprise!! Not!!

According to his spokeswoman, "Notwithstanding the motives for this reported military action, the secretary-general is concerned about the new dimension this kind of action could introduce to the conflict and the possible escalation of hostilities that may result."

Notwithstanding the motives? What the hell kind of response is that? I don't want to hear "notwithstanding the motives" from his mouth. I want to hear GET YOUR FUCKING ASSES OUT OF SOMALIA. That's what I want to hear. The United States, regardless of what Tony Snow or any of the other half-wits in the White House would have you believe, is in Somalia ILLEGALLY. They are bombing yet another country. They are killing more civilians, and they're lying about it. They would have you believe that this "mission" in Somalia is about going after Al-Qaeda. They would have you believe that they're going after one man who is on the FBI's Most Wanted list. They would have you believe that they're going after those responsible for the Embassy bombings in Africa in 1998. The fact is, they're killing innocent CIVILIANS. If you believe otherwise, you're as stupid as you look.

Ban Ki-moon needs to either grow some balls, or just get the hell out of the UN already. I'm tired of these bitches having nothing to say but the same old shit. I'm tired of these bitches doing nothing to hold certain countries accountable for their actions.

How long is it going to be before the U.S. military is going head-to-head, door-to-door, and gun barrel-to-gun barrel with these "terrorists" on the streets of Somalia? How long is it going to be before the first U.S. military death in Somalia is announced? How long is it going to be before George Bush declares war on Somalia? Hmm???????? I can't hear you!! How long is it going to be before the people of this country and the people of the world say ENOUGH IS FUCKING ENOUGH ALREADY? How long is it going to be before the people of this country and the people of the world say GET THE FUCK OUT OF OTHER COUNTRIES? How long is it going to be before the people of this country demand that this war monger is impeached, handed over to the International Court along with his cohorts, and put on trial for crimes against humanity among other things?

My guess is that I and others will be waiting forever because the half-wits of America are too busy worrying their pretty little heads about who the contestants are going to be on the soon to air new season of American Idol. That or they're too busy downloading some mind-numbing garbage that they call music onto their Ipods. They can't be bothered to concern themselves with the simple little fact that people are DYING AROUND THE WORLD. They can't be bothered to concern themselves with the simple little fact that the United States is once again bombing the hell out of another country all in the name of the phony WAR ON TERROR.

Quick, grab your remote. You don't want to miss that hilarious new commercial. Never mind the innocent people who are dying all around the world because of the United States.

U.S. Scientists Attempt To Turn "Gay" Sheep Straight

U.S. scientists are attempting to turn "gay" sheep straight. If it weren't for the fact that it's true, it would be laughable.

It's not the fact that they're attempting to turn "gay" sheep straight that pisses me off. It's the fact that my tax dollars are spent on bullshit like this. What's next, injecting gay humans with this garbage in order to end human homosexuality? Instead of spending my tax dollars on worthwhile causes such as finding a cure for AIDS/HIV, cancer, or some other horrible diseases, they choose to waste it on bullshit like this.

Non-Specific Viewpoint? Bullshit!!

The Catholic Church in Australia has been awarded an abortion counseling contract. Last year John Howard said, "organisations with religious affiliations were entitled to tender, but insisted the hotline would not be set up to provide a specific viewpoint on pregnancy or terminations."

Non-specific viewpoints? What the hell do you expect these Catholic Church counselors to tell pregnant women who either voluntarily or involuntarily seek counseling on abortion? It's not like they're going to say, hey go have an abortion. For Christ sake, these jackasses are so-called "pro-lifers." Non-specific viewpoints my ass. Everyone with a brain knows that these assholes from the Catholic Church are going to do absolutely everything they can to make sure that these women don't undergo an abortion. Don't be surprised if they lie, give false and misleading "medical" information to these women, and impose their religious bullshit on these women. Oh, and just imagine what they'll say to women or children who are victims of rape and incest who became pregnant as a result. I can hear it now, "I'm so sorry my child that you were raped (cough...cough...cough...smirk). I'm so sorry my child that your daddy or other male relative had sex with you against your will (cough...cough...cough...smirk). But you see, if you have an abortion you're a sinner because God doesn't like abortions. You're going to go to hell if you abort that fetus. You see, all life is sacred. You must look past your selfish desires and needs. You must get over the crimes that were perpetrated against you. You must carry that fetus to term because God created this gift for you."

To the women of Australia I say this:

These are the people who believed that an 11 year old child who was raped by her stepfather for a few years and became pregnant as a result should have carried that fetus to term. These are the people who believe that the only appropriate procreation is between a husband and wife through marital sex. Yet when it comes to rape and incest victims, all that is thrown out the window. In the grand scheme of things, they don't give a damn about these victims. They only care about the fetus. That is of course, up until it's born. After that, they don't give a damn anymore.

If I lived in Australia, I'd rather seek advice from the most heinous person alive before I'd ever seek counseling from the Catholic Church. Now that's saying something!!

This Is Freedom?

Apparently in Iraq, the media has no freedom.

The Iraqi government Monday ordered the closure of the Baghdad office of a Dubai-based television station whose newscaster wore black mourning clothes while reporting on the hanging of Hussein.

Ooh, God forbid someone thinks differently than the puppet government of Iraq. God forbid someone chooses to exercise their right to express how they feel. Isn't that what freedom is all about? Shouldn't people have the right to express how they feel, regardless of whether or not anyone agrees with them?

A spokesman for the Interior Ministry said the Al-Sharqiya station, owned by a former chief of radio and television for Saddam, had incited violence and hatred in its coverage and had ignored warnings to stop.

Brigadier Abdul-Karim Khalaf, the spokesman, said the order was issued after an allegedly false report by the news channel about the abduction of three Sunni Arab female students from a university.

But the order also followed criticism of the tone of Al-Sharqiya's coverage of Saturday's execution, which struck some as sympathetic to the ousted dictator.

Apparently they don't watch American news channels. There is false and misleading reporting going on all the time. The right-wing whacks would have you believe that the media here is "liberal" but it's not. Perhaps the puppet government of Iraq should turn on some of the news channels here, especially one in particular. They'll get a lesson real fast on watching garbage news!!

The government did not specifically cite the controversy over Al-Sharqiya's coverage of Saddam's execution in explaining the closure.

"We had sent many warnings to the channel previously, but it insisted on circulating false news that provoked violence and hatred," said Khalaf, the interior ministry spokesman.

BULLSHIT!! I always love when people who are pissed that others don't tow the line say that media coverage has provoked violence and incited hatred. Prove it!! Unless the government can prove that something that was broadcast from this station did anything of the sort, they're the damn liars!!

What's the matter? Did they make the puppets look bad? Didn't they put out the same propaganda bullshit that the U.S. put out on their propaganda television network that they set up in Iraq? Oh, too bad!!

This is freedom? If this is freedom, the puppets can shove it!!
