Bush will continue to make a mockery of laws in this country as he has done so many times before
The United States, under Bush's "leadership", will continue to be the most hated country in the world
Memphis will win the NCAA Basketball Championship. UCLA will make the Final Four again and USC will make the sweet 16
The Detroit Tigers will win the World Series
The New England Patriots will win the Super Bowl (duh)
Congress and Senate will not impeach Bush or Cheney despite the numerous laws they broke and will continue to break
Nothing will come out of the destroyed CIA tapes even though anyone with half a brain knows Bush/Cheney authorized it
The mainstream media will continue to give Bush a pass despite scandal after scandal
Congress and Senate unfortunately still will not develop a spine and challenge Bush
Despite good efforts from the Bush Administration there will still not be a peace deal in the middle east between Israel and Palestine
The winner of the Presidential Election will be:
(Yeah like I know)
The media will still rather talk about famous people being arrested instead of actual issues
USC will win the Rose Bowl (again duh)
Bush will continue to ignore states with natural disasters
The writers strike will be settled sometime before the Academy Awards
Republicans will continue to ignore Global Warming despite the obvious effects it is causing in the United States
There will be no "fair and balanced" radio. My definition of fair and balanced is for every conservative host there is a liberal host. Ladies and gentlemen that's fair.
The housing crisis will create a recession but it will correct itself after about a year
I don't wanna know how high gas prices will go. All I know is in 2002 gas was $1.55 a gallon now under Bush's torture we see it well over $3.00
Well that's all I have for now I hope everyone does have a happy New Year as always do not drink and drive and I will see everyone next year
Sorry Bill O. People like you who once said "if you don't like this as a Chrstian Country you should go to Israel" are what is wrong with the Republican Party because last I checked you are free to worship how you please here in the United States.

We learned that Democrats don't have a spine. At least yet. Bush got everything he wanted and then some and the bills he vetoed which help people like our troops show how he doesn't care even though Bush put them in harm's way.
We learned Bush is able to break as many laws as he can violating citizens civil rights as well as our constitution.
We learned whatever Bush says is a lies. Period
We learned that the media supports Bush in whatever he does
We learned no matter how many laws Bush breaks the Congress won't impeach him
We learned that insurance companies like Cigna don't care about their covered patients
We learned it's ok to talk about Democrats private sex lives but when Republicans (Larry Craig, David Vitter, Rudy Gulliani so far) have affairs we should shut up. Especially since they attacked Bill Clinton on his private sex life.
We learned that the election cycle is way too long
We were reminded Bush still hasn't captured Osama Bin Laden
We learned if you are in the Justice Department if you prosecute Republicans you get fired
We learned the media, instead of talking about real problems and news in our country, would rather talk about Brittney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, etc.
We learned that people care more about things like steroids then issues that matter
We learned David Beckham coming to Los Angeles didn't really do much to promote Soccer
We learned the Los Angeles Kings still suck
We learned that despite a couple of loses USC is still the most dominant football school in So Cal
We learned how much of an egomaniac Kobe Bryant is
Friday, December 28, 2007
But the winner, (I know you are shocked) ,continuing to show how he hates American Soldiers who are in harms way is George Bush. The reason is he announced he is going to veto the Defense Policy Bill which among other things gives are brave men and women soldiers a pay raise. His claim of why he is vetoing it is the most stupid thing I've ever heard "on grounds that it would derail Iraq's efforts to rebuild its country".
We now that Bush hates the soldiers as much as he hates America. The last year of him in office can't come soon enough.

ABC on the 5th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks aired the documentary path to 9/11 which pretty much absolved all blame from George Bush and placed it on Bill Clinton.
CBS refused to air a movie that godforbid didn't put Ronald Reagan in a positive light.
CNN has programs hosted by Lou Dobbs, Glen Beck both well-noted conservatives as well as having Robert Novack and many others
MSNBC Tucker Carlson, Joe Scarborough, Chris Matthews are all conservative.
So the myth of the liberal media is just that. I wish these people would stop listening to liars like Rush LImbaugh and open their eyes to facts.
Indeed, it is shocking to consider the uniformity of opinion among blacks in this country. Opinion polls consistently show that only about 5% of blacks have sensible political opinions, i.e. support the free market, individual liberty, and the end of welfare and affirmative action.... Given the inefficiencies of what D.C. laughingly calls the "criminal justice system," I think we can safely assume that 95% of the black males in that city are semi-criminal or entirely criminal.
If similar in-depth studies were conducted in other major cities, who doubts that similar results would be produced? We are constantly told that it is evil to be afraid of black men, but it is hardly irrational. Black men commit murders, rapes, robberies, muggings, and burglaries all out of proportion to their numbers.
What another loser. Perfect for the Republican Party.

I am 8 years old. Some of my little friends say there is no Santa Claus. Papa says, “If you see it in The Sun, it’s so.” Please tell me the truth, is there a Santa Claus?
Virginia, your little friends are wrong. They have been affected by the skepticism of a skeptical age. They do not believe except they see. They think that nothing can be which is not comprehensible by their little minds. All minds, Virginia, whether they be men’s or children’s, are little. In this great universe of ours, man is a mere insect, an ant, in his intellect as compared with the boundless world about him, as measured by the intelligence capable of grasping the whole of truth and knowledge.
Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy. Alas! how dreary would be the world if there were no Santa Claus! It would be as dreary as if there were no Virginias. There would be no childlike faith then, no poetry, no romance to make tolerable this existence. We should have no enjoyment, except in sense and sight. The external light with which childhood fills the world would be extinguished.
Not believe in Santa Claus! You might as well not believe in fairies. You might get your papa to hire men to watch in all the chimneys on Christmas eve to catch Santa Claus, but even if you did not see Santa Claus coming down, what would that prove? Nobody sees Santa Claus, but that is no sign that there is no Santa Claus. The most real things in the world are those that neither children nor men can see. Did you ever see fairies dancing on the lawn? Of course not, but that’s no proof that they are not there. Nobody can conceive or imagine all the wonders there are unseen and unseeable in the world.
You tear apart the baby’s rattle and see what makes the noise inside, but there is a veil covering the unseen world which not the strongest man, nor even the united strength of all the strongest men that ever lived could tear apart. Only faith, poetry, love, romance, can push aside that curtain and view and picture the supernal beauty and glory beyond. Is it all real? Ah, Virginia, in all this world there is nothing else real and abiding.
No Santa Claus! Thank God! he lives and lives forever. A thousand years from now, Virginia, nay 10 times 10,000 years from now, he will continue to make glad the heart of childhood.

Nothing will change in Iraq.
Bush will try his best to stop the Democrats from getting anything done YET will blame them for not getting anything done.
The Media will continue to parade criminal Republicans (and occassional Democrats) on their talk shows meaning we will only get one point of view as always and it will be the wrong point of view.
The hype for the 2008 election will continue to be more then what it is.
Absolutely right there
The Super Bowl winner will be the Baltimore Ravens.
UCLA Basketball will make another run in the Tourney but will end up losing to Ohio State in the final four.
1/2 right there. They made it to the final four but lost to Florida again
USC Basketball will show signs of life even though no one shows up to their games to see.
Right. But not last year but they are this year. Mayo is great.
While another year of fear but no terror attacks.
Celebrities will continue to go through spouses like they go through their wardrobes and no one but the media will care like right now.
Bush will sacrifice more troops in Iran.
Wrong there. For now
There will be investigations on Bush and the most damning thing will be with his and Cheney's energy task force which will show beyond a shadow of a doubt that Bush has everything to do with the high gas prices because gas prices are going up right now and the price of oil is falling.
Wrong there since Congress and the Senate doesn't have a backbone despite the criminal activity of this administration.
The Cubs, despite making perhaps the biggest splash in free agency this year, still will not win the world series. In fact I think it will be the Florida Marlins who will win. They had a great run last year.
1/2 right. The Cubs didn't make the World Series of course but the Marlins stunk
The Detroit Red Wings will win the NHL Stanley Cup. No one will care.
The Lakers will make a run in the NBA Playoffs but will fall short to eventual winner the Denver Nuggets. No one will care.
I'll have a few predictions for next year soon. In the meantime I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and if they celebrate Kwanzaa I hope you have a happy Kwanzaa as well.
Remember do NOT drink and drive.

Is it more important to have someone who would represent your religious views who might not be electable or would you sacrifice that in order to retain the Presidency you already have?
I ask that because in the case of Mike Huckabee. He is surging and I wrote about his quotes and the fact he is a baptist minister and some of his stupid, out of touch with reality, (in my opinion) views. He is surging as I said in Iowa but still trails Nationally behind the usual suspects so I wonder what is more important.

“I want Democrats to be back in the majority in Washington and elect a Democratic president in 2008. This man [Ned Lamont] and his supporters will frustrate and defeat our hopes of doing that.”
It comes as no surprise Democratic turncoat Joe Lie-berman (not a typo) has not endorsed a Democrat but a Republican John McCain. Not like his endorsement means anything in fact here is his quote with a comment why would any sane person want this idiots support.
LIEBERMAN: Well, I did. I mean, to have full disclosure, not one of the Democrats asked for my support, which may be a story in itself. John McCain and I are friends. He did ask for my support.
Sunday, December 16, 2007
So I see where 14 states, including California, are rejecting federal funding for abstinence only education. I say good because that never has and never will work. The people who support that are backwards in limiting people's options when they have sex. People should be aware of every option in terms of protection no matter how awkward it might make parents feel should be taught.
Good for the states who have smartened up.

Can Commissioner Selig suspend players?
Can these players be charged?
If you have seen the report you see there is a lot of heresay can that hold up in court?
How many owners knew what was going on?
And did they cover it up because their pocketbooks were increasing?
Will it affect how you view players?
Will it affect if you attend games or not?
How should it affect players with record like Clemens and Bonds?
Wednesday, December 12, 2007
Sen. Trent Lott (R-MS): “[Filibustering] is wrong. It’s not supportable under the Constitution. And if they insist on persisting with these filibusters, I’m perfectly prepared to blow the place up.”
Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) spokesman: “Senator McConnell always has and continues to fully support the use of what has become known as the ‘[nuclear]’ option in order to restore the norms and traditions of the Senate.”
Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX): “I support the [nuclear] option, I support a rule change, I support elimination of the unconstitutional filibuster by any legal means.”
So what happens when the Democrats are in charge:
So the House has passed 239 measures since Democrats took over yet Republicans are blocking most of them since they are petty and babies since they no longer have control of all three branches. mind you these are the people who claim nothing is being done and now we know why.

You are right because you called wives to graciously submit to their husband’s sacrificial leadership.

Wondering if Oprah Winfrey's support for Barrack Obama will make a difference or not
Wondering how Mike Huckabee feels about being a front runner now that it came out over the weekend comments he made about people with Aids being quarantined and that he pardoned a rapist when he was governor who went on to kill two people in Missouri
Wondering how much punishment Pittsburgh Steelers Defensive Back Anthony Smith received after guaranteeing a Steelers win on Sunday and they got their butts whipped
Can the Patriots go undefeated?
Will the Dolphins win a game?
And can they beat the Ravens who have quit on the season this Sunday?
Sorry Robert but what happened to the Rams this year I thought they would be contending this year
Same for the Saints and Bengals
Most surprising team this year in the NFL: the Cleveland Browns
The Raiders are the team I thought they'd be (sorry Dennis Green I had to)
Was this the most screwed up year in college football or what?
Will the election finally get here already?

I want to talk about a liberal talk show host on kgo 810 in San Francisco. I always listened and liked his views on issues and he is one of the few talk show host I went out of my way to listen to. I was shocked and saddened to learn he is under indictment for possessing internet kiddie porn.
While I hope he is found innocent if he is found guilty the pervert needs to be locked up a long time.
Way to set the example Bernie.

The situation is this: A person's neighbor is being robbed. The person rightfully called 911 but the police did not show up at the point the robbers were going to leave so that person, instead of helping the police and giving accurate descriptions of the felons and an accurate description of the vehicle they were driving, decided to take the law in his own hands and kill the robbers. He did not fire a warning shot to get them to stop he shot to kill nevermind the robber posed no direct threat to him or his family.
I think some questions need to be asked and I would like any response if you choose.
A) Was this shooting justified
B) Should this person be charged with a crime and what crime should he be charged with
C) Does this change your position on guns and or gun control
D) Is this person a hero or a villain
Thursday, November 29, 2007
I must say though the questions as I said were interesting even though there was no real opposition questions.
Tuesday, November 27, 2007
CNN’s Suzanne Malveaux: “Why should the Americans, or even the international community, see this any more as a political stunt here, a publicity stunt, a big wet kiss to President Al-Assad?”
Washington Post Editorial Board: “Ms. Pelosi’s attempt to establish a shadow presidency is not only counterproductive, it is foolish.”
Thomas Sowell of the Baltimore Sun: “All that Ms. Pelosi’s trip can accomplish is to advertise American disunity to a terrorist-sponsoring nation in the Middle East while we are in a war there.”
NBC’s Matt Lauer: “But if the Democrats and Speaker Pelosi appear to be acting irresponsibly or incompetently — and let’s face it, a lot of people think she messed up on this one — what’s the impact for Democrats overall?”
Now that Syria is in the conference that Bush is holding (which will accomplish nothing) here is what the media is saying:
New York Times: “Syria announced Sunday that it would attend the Middle East peace meeting beginning here Monday night, joining Saudi Arabia and the rest of the Arab League participants in a turnabout that represented a victory for the Bush administration.”
The Denver Post: “Victory for U.S.: Syria to attend summit.”
The AP’s Amy Teibel: “The Bush administration was able to declare a clean sweep when Syria, the last Arab world holdout, said Sunday it would attend this week’s high-stakes Mideast peace conference.”
The Wall Street Journal: “The Bush administration is even courting a long-time pariah, Syria. … Talks with Syria could go some way in weakening Tehran’s strongest alliance in the region.”
The AP’s Sam Ghattas: “The Syrian participation is already seen in Washington as a success for the Bush administration.”
So again if this isn't enough proof for all you conservatives out there you must be on whatever Bush is right now.
I always laugh at the religious right since they are the biggest hypocrites of them all in a sea (Republicans) that's filled with them. Here is yet another example backing my point.
The religious right seems to be split among backing the Republican candidates for President and I really, considering their "values" that the religious leaders hold so dear to their hearts don't apply to any of the leading candidates on the right. I've typed so many times about how the leading candidates do not hold any "values" that they hold close to them including extra marital affairs, stances on abortion that if the religious leaders have any "values" they would not endorse any of the candidates based on their beliefs.
But there they are endorsing Guliani, McCain, Thompson, etc. showing that they are hypocrites. I guess I shouldn't be surprised.
Sunday, November 25, 2007
I've always said this about the war in Afghanistan: If Bush paid as much attention there, especially since the person who is responsible for attacking us on 9/11 is there, as he did Iraq would we achieve victory. But since Bush doesn't that's why things are not going well there.
And as far as O'Idiot I suggest he brush up on Arab rules of law cause they are screwed up in all countries.
Thursday, November 22, 2007
Why is this gentlemen in my opinion the biggest turkey? Here is why: He offered 1 million dollars to prove the people who "swift boated" John Kerry in the election a couple of years ago wrong. John Kerry accepted that wager and after he did he demanded all sorts of records that would be impossible to have. So in other words he had no intention of paying the wager he offered.
Absolutely a typical Republican and absolutely the biggest turkey.
Anyway I do hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving and remember DO NOT drink and drive.

I am thankful that we only have a little over 1 more year of the psychopath in the White House
I am thankful for Bill O Reilly,Rush and the whole right wing media and all the material they give me to post to show how stupid and ignorant they are
I am thankful that my niece is doing fine and at least for now her cancer is in remission
I am thankful that I have such great friends (to many to mention) who have put of with me all these years
I am thankful for Geoffrey Church who livened things up around here for awhile
I am thankful that I have a great family who is there for me when I need them
I am always thankful for your support of this site

So this disgusting story states how the military is trying to collect bonuses that they gave soldiers who signed up for service back for the reason they got wounded in Iraq. Again it's on Bush cause he is in charge of the military but I guess since he, like most in his administration,dodged serving in Vietnam when it was their time he wouldn't know what it's like to be in combat.
As I said disgusting.

Take a look at Walter Reed and the soldiers treatment there. I know of soldiers who have to wait months at a time to see doctors and I feel that's disgusting and needs to improve. It shoudn't be like this for our brave men and women.
So pathetic and remember Bush is in charge of the military that's why it falls on him.

"I think voters should look at it, and what they should say is in that particular case I made a mistake," Giuliani said during a press conferred in Dubuque, Iowa. "I made a mistake in not clearing him effectively enough, and I take the responsibility for that"
"But when you balance that mistake against all the successes that we had and the reality that you make some mistakes and you make some correct decisions, I think the overwhelming record is a record of great success," the New York Republican added..I have said this many times before regarding Guliani: If not for 9/11 he would have gone down as one of the most hated, unpopular mayors in New York City. His approval ratings were about the same as Bush's currently are and a lot of the things which caused failures during 9/11 that he was in charge of are going to come out if he gets nominated.
But back to Guliani's friend he just got indicted on tax fraud, corruption, and conspiracy counts. If you think Guliani didn't know about this you are wrong.

First Amendment: In September, a federal judge ruled that the FBI’s use of secret “national security letters” to obtain citizens’ personal data from private companies for counterterrorism investigations “violate[d] the First Amendment and constitutional provisions on the separation of powers.”
First Amendment, Fourth Amendment: In Aug. 2006, a federal district court in Detroit ruled that the Bush administration’ss NSA warrantless wiretapping program was unconstitutional, violating the “separation of powers doctrine, the Administrative Procedures Act, the First and Fourth amendments to the United States Constitution, the FISA and Title III.”
Article I: Testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee in June, then Attorney General Alberto Gonzales attempted to justify the administration’s detainee policy by claiming, “There is no express grant of habeas in the Constitution.” (Article I, Section 9, Clause 2 of the Contitution reads: “The Privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in Cases of Rebellion or Invasion the public Safety may require it.”)
Article II: In June, House investigators revealed that Vice President Dick Cheney had exempted his office from an executive order order designed to safeguard classified national security information by claiming that he was not an “entity within the executive branch.” (Read the duties of the Vice President, outlined in Article II of the Constitution HERE.)
One of the things also Musharraf is complaining about is "judicial activism" isn't that also one of the things Bush and the right always complain about? Or am I wrong?
Sunday, November 04, 2007
I'd also like to remind you how George "dead or alive" Bush has failed to capture the mastermind behind 9/11 Osama Bin Laden. And Al Queda is still as much as a threat today as they were before 9/11 and things like the Patriot Act are failures because we are constantly reminded how attacks can happen by terrorist by the Bush Administration.
But really I'd like to bring up how Bush is using, with the help of the friendly right-wing media the "war on terror" to both deflect attention to the criminal actions of his administration and to scare people to getting the laws he wants passed.
This is from one of the few shows that doesn't suck of to the Bush Administration, Keith Olbermann.
OLBERMANN: Number one, May 18th, 2002; the first details of the president‘s daily briefing of August 6th, 2001 are revealed, including its title “Bin laden determined to strike in U.S.” The same day, another memo is discovered revealing the FBI knew of men with links to al Qaeda training at an Arizona flight school. The memo was never acted upon.
Questions about 9/11 intelligence failures are swirling. May 20th, 2002.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: The terror warnings from the highest level of the federal government tonight are—
OLBERMANN: Two days later, FBI Director Mueller declares that another terrorist attack is “inevitable.”
The next day, the Department of Homeland Security issues warnings of attacks against railroads nationwide, and against New York City landmarks like the Brooklyn Bridge and the Statue of Liberty.
Number two, Thursday, June 6th, 2002.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I never really anticipated this kind of impact.
OLBERMANN: Coleen Rowley, the FBI agent who tried to alert her superiors to the specialized flight training taken by Zacarias Moussaoui, whose information suggests the government missed the chance to break up the 9/11 plot, testifies before Congress. Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Graham says Rowley‘s testimony has inspired similar pre-9/11 whistle blower.
Monday June 10th, four days later.
JOHN ASHCROFT, FORMER ATTORNEY GENERAL: We have disrupted an unfolding terrorist plot.
OLBERMANN: Speaking from Russia, Attorney General John Ashcroft reveals that an American name Jose Padilla is under arrest, accused of plotting a radiation bomb attack in this country. In fact, Padilla had by this time already been detained for more than one month.
Number three, February 5th, 2003; Secretary of State Powell tells the United Nations Security Council of Iraq‘s concealment of weapon, including his 18 mobile biological weapons laboratories, justifying a U.N. or U.S. first strike. Many in the U.N. are doubtful.
Months later, much of the information proves untrue.
February 7th, 2003; Two days later. As anti-war demonstrations continue to take place around the globe.
TOM RIDGE, FORMER HOMELAND SECURITY DIRECTOR: Take some time to prepare for an emergency.
OLBERMANN: Homeland Security Secretary Ridge cites credible threats by al Qaeda and raises the terror alert level to orange. Three days after that, Fire Administrator David Paulison, who would become the acting head of FEMA after the Hurricane Katrina disaster advises Americans to stock up on plastic sheeting and duct tape to protect themselves against radiological or biological attack.
Number four, July 23rd, 2003; the White House admits that the CIA, months before the president‘s State of the Union Address, expressed strong doubts about the claim that Iraq had attempt to buy uranium from Niger. On the 24th, the Congressional report on the 9/11 attacks is issued. It criticizes government at all levels. It reveals an FBI informant had been living with two of the future hijackers.
It concludes that Iraq had no link to al Qaeda. Twenty eight pages of the report are redacted. On the 26th, American troops are accused of beating Iraqi prisoners.
July 29th, 2003, three days later; amid all of the negative headline.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Word of a possible new al Qaeda attack.
OLBERMANN: Homeland Security issues warnings of further terrorist attempts to use airplanes for suicide attacks.
Number five, December 17th, 2003; 9/11 Commission co-chair Thomas Kean says the attacks were preventable. The next day, a federal appeals court says the government cannot detain suspected radiation bomber Jose Padilla indefinitely without charges, and the chief U.S. weapons inspector in Iraq, Dr. David Kay, who has previously announced he has found no weapons of mass destruction there, announces he will resign his post.
December 21st, 2003, four days later; the Sunday before Christmas.
RIDGE: Today the United States government raised the national threat level.
OLBERMANN: Homeland Security again raises the threat level to orange, claiming credible intelligence of further plots to crash airliner into U.S. cities. Subsequently, six international flights into this country are canceled after some passenger names purportedly produced matches on government no fly lists. The French later identified those matched names. One belongs to an insurance salesman from Wales, another to an elderly Chinese woman, a third to a five-year-old boy.
Number six, March 30th, 2004; the new chief weapons inspector in Iraq, Charles Duelfer, tells Congress we have still not found any WMD in that country. And, after weeks of having refused to appear before the 9/11 Commission, Condoleezza Rice relents and agrees to testify.
On the 31st, four Blackwater USA contractors working in Iraq are murdered. Their mutilated bodies dragged through the streets and left on public display in Fallujah. The role of civilian contractors in Iraq is now widely questioned.
April 2nd, 2004 --
BRIAN WILLIAMS, NBC NEWS ANCHOR: The FBI has issued a new warning tonight.
OLBERMANN: Homeland Security issues a bulletin warning that terrorists may try to blow up buses and trains using fertilizer and fuel bombs like the one detonate in Oklahoma City, bombs stuffed into satchels or duffel bags.
Number seven, May 16th, 2004; Secretary of State Powell appears on “Meet the Press.” Moderator Tim Russert closes by asking him about the enormous personal credibility Powell had placed before the U.N. in laying out a case against Saddam Hussein. An aide to Powell interrupts the question, saying the interview is over.
TIM RUSSERT, NBC NEWS ANCHOR: I think that was one of your staff, Mr. secretary. I don‘t think that‘s appropriate.
COLIN POWELL, FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE: Emily, get out of the way.
OLBERMANN: Powell finishes his answer, admitting that much of the
information he had been given about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq was
POWELL: Inaccurate and wrong, and, in some cases, deliberately misleading.
OLBERMANN: On the 21st, new photos showing mistreatment of Iraqi prisoners at Abu Ghraib prison are released. On the 24th, Associated Press video from Iraq confirms U.S. forces mistakenly bombed a wedding party, killing more than 40.
Wednesday, May 26th, 2004, two days later.
ASHCROFT: Good afternoon.
OLBERMANN: Attorney General Ashcroft and FBI Director Mueller warned that intelligence from multiple sources—
ASHCROFT: Indicates al Qaeda‘ specific intention to hit the United States hard.
OLBERMANN: And that 90 percent of the arrangements for an attack on the United States were complete. The color coded warning system is not raised. The Homeland Security secretary, Tom Ridge, does not attend the announcement.
Number eight, July 6th, 2004; Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry selects Senator John Edwards as his vice-presidential running mate, producing a small bump in the election opinion polls and producing a huge swing in media attention towards the Democratic campaign.
July 8th, 2004, two days later.
RIDGE: Credible reporting now indicates al Qaeda is moving forward with its plan to carry out a large scale attack in the United States.
OLBERMANN: Homeland Secretary Ridge warns of information about al Qaeda attacks during the summer or autumn. Four days after that, the head of the U.S. Election Assistance Commission, Deforest B. Soaries Jr., confirms he has written to Ridge about the prospect of postponing the upcoming presidential election in the case the event it is interrupted by terrorist attacks.
Number nine, July 29th, 2004; at their party convention in Boston, the Democrats formally nominate John Kerry as their candidate for president. As in the wake of any convention, the Democrats now dominate the media attention over the subsequent weekend.
August 1st, 2004, Monday morning, three days later.
RIDGE: It is as reliable a source—a group of sources as we‘ve ever seen before.
OLBERMANN: The Department of Homeland Security raises the alert status for financial centers in New York, New Jersey and Washington to orange. The evidence supporting the warning, reconnaissance data left in a home in Iraq; later prove to be roughly four years old and largely out of date.
Number ten, October 6th, 2005, 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time; the president addresses the National Endowment for Democracy, once again, emphasizing the importance of the war on terror and insisting his government has broken up at least 10 terrorist plots since 9/11.
At 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time, five hour after the president‘s speech has begun, the Associate Press reports that Karl Rove will testify again to the CIA leak Grand Jury and that Special Prosecutor Fitzgerald has told Rove he cannot guarantee that he will not be indicted.
CHRIS MATTHEWS, MSNBC ANCHOR: We‘re awaiting a news conference at the bottom of the hour.
OLBERMANN: At 5:17 p.m. Eastern time, seven hour after the president‘s speech has begun, New York official disclosed a bomb threat to the city‘ subway system based on information supplied by the federal government. The Homeland Security spokesman says the intelligence upon which the disclosure is based is of doubtful credibility.
And later it proves that New York City had known of the threat for at least three days and had increased police presence in the subways long before making the announcement at that particular time. Local New York television station WNBC reports it had the story of the threats days in advance of the announcement, but was asked by high ranking federal officials in New York and Washington to hold off on its story.
Less than four days after having reveal the threat, Mayor Michael Bloomberg of New York says, since the period of the three now seems to be passing, I think over the immediate future, we‘ll slowly be winding down the enhanced security. While news organizations, ranging from the “New York Post” to NBC New quote sources who say there was reason to believe the informant who triggered the warning simply made it up.
A senior U.S. counter terrorism official tells the “New York Times,” quote, there was no there there.
Number 11, a sequence of event in August 2006 best understood now in chronological order. As the month begins, the controversy over domestic surveillance without legal warrants in this country crests. Then on August 9th, the day after the Connecticut Democratic Senatorial Primary, Vice President Cheney says the victory of challenger Ned Lamont over incumbent Joe Lieberman is a positive for the, quote, al Qaeda types, who he says, quote, “clearly betting on the proposition that ultimately they break the will of the American people, in terms of our ability to stay in the fight.”
The next day, British authorities arrest 24 suspects in an alleged imminent plot to blow up U.S. bound aircraft using liquid explosives smuggled on board in sports drink bottles. Domestic air travel is thrown into chaos as carry-on liquids are suddenly banned.
On August 14th, British intelligence reveals it did not think the plot was imminent. Only the U.S. did. And our authorities pressed to make the arrests. Eleven of the 24 suspect are later released. And in the months to come, the carry-on liquids ban is repeatedly relaxed.
Number 12, May 7th, 2007, Greensburg, Kansas leveled by a tornado and the state‘ governor notes, more in sorrow than in anger, that the redeployment of so much of the Kansas National Guard and its equipment to Iraq might now cripple the soldiers‘ ability to respond if another disaster hits Kansas.
GOV. KATHLEEN SEBELIUS (D), KANSAS: What we‘re really missing is equipment. And that is putting a strain on recoveries like this one.
OLBERMANN: The next day, the authorities announce arrests in a far-fetched plan to attack soldiers at Fort Dix in New Jersey. The so-called terrorists planned to gain access to the base by posing as pizza delivery men. It is not a suicide mission. They state clearly, they intend to kill personnel and then retreat to safety, even though they were going to attack a closed compound, full of trained soldiers with weapons.
And though the plan is branded sophisticated, its perpetrators are not sophisticated enough to have not handed over the videotape of themselves training with weapons to a Circuit City store in order to be transferred to DVD. The Fort Dix plot not only erases from most news coverage the issue of disaster readiness in Kansas, but it also obscures the next day‘ story that in anticipation of his testimony to a House panel, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales has submitted opening remarks that match, virtually word for word, the remarks he had given the previous month to a Senate committee.
ALBERTO GONZALES, ATTORNEY GENERAL: Recognizing my limit involvement in the process, a mistake I freely acknowledge—
a mistake that I freely acknowledge, I have soberly questioned my prior decisions.
OLBERMANN: And number 13, June, 2007, the JFK plot to blow up the jet fuel pipeline feeding John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City, thus causing the entire airport to be consumed in an horrific conflagration. One of the men arrested has, as past employee access, to the sprawling complex, but little knowledge of the reality of the pipeline system.
The manager of that system tells the “New York Times” that the pipeline is not some kind of fuse. Shut off valves throughout would have easily contain any damage, just as a leak in a tunnel in any city would not flood everything in that city below ground. The so called plot happens to be revealed the day before the second Democratic presidential debate.
And as the scandal continues to unfold over the firings of U.S. attorneys, and their replacements by political hacks, the so called plot is announced by the Bush appointed U.S. attorney for Brooklyn, New York, and by the police chief of New York City, the father of a correspondent for Fox News Channel.
So you see Bill it's NOT left-wingers but right-wingers who are using the "War on Terror" to further their agenda. As usual you are wrong again.
And by the way are "friends" in Pakastan really know how to run a Government don't they? Looks like our troops are going to be in the middle of not one but two Civil Wars and when Bush invades Iran he will sacrifice even more of our brave men and women.

The best line of the debate season so far was by Joe Biden the other night when he accurately described Guliani (paraphrasing a tad) "the only way Guliani knows how to make a sentence is with a noun, a verb, and 9/11." That's so true and shows nothing how Guliani is qualified to be president.

“One reason why we have the fires in California is global warming,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) told reporters Tuesday, stressing the need to pass the Democrats’ comprehensive energy package.
No the reason we had fires is a combination of a couple of things:
Strong Santa Anna Winds
And a combination of downed power lines and sick freaks who think it's fun to set fires!
You know how I believe Global Warming and it's a problem that needs to be resolved now instead of later but that is not what causes fires.
And despite what i saw on False News this comment is nowhere near as stupid and uncaring as Glenn Beck's comments the other day.

BECK: Schwarzenegger came out over the weekend and he said the Republicans need to run to the center and they need to grab the center. And the headline -- I looked at it, and I went "OK, OK, what is this? What is this? Oh, it's Schwarzenegger. I'm probably going to disagree with it." And then I started reading it, and I absolutely disagreed with it. He said they need to start talking about health care and education. That's not the way to win.
Let's talk about health care and education? That's not the way to win. That's not the way to win on any front. I'm not even talking about -- the least I care about is winning the election. How about winning the war? How about saving our country? And, you know, it made me think. I want to make this very clear. When I say on the air, and I've said it a lot lately, that we need to come together and we need to get back into the center, we're being pushed on to the edges -- I want you to understand, that is not on policies. I don't mean that we come in the center on policies. We come to the center on principles. We come back to the center of the melting pot, that we're all one America, that just because I disagree with you doesn't mean you hate America, and I love America. We all love America. We just disagree on how we should function, what we should do, big government, small government. It doesn't mean you hate America. I think there is a handful of people who hate America. Unfortunately for them, a lot of them are losing their homes in a forest fire today.
There are a few people that hate America. But I don't think the Democrats are those. I think there are those posing as Democrats that are like that. But you don't come into the center. You have to stand up for what you believe in.
So those who lost their homes in the devastating fires are those who hate America?? Funny I didn't know Rush, O'Idiot and Beck lived here. Sad how people find this amusing when people are suffering isn't it?

1st the S-Chip bill. That bill is designed to help low-income families with health insurance (which is a major issue in the election this coming year) they veto it.
2nd every time there is a bill that wants to bring our troops home they will vote against it despite the fact the majority of the people want our troops home. And if any soldier speaks out against they war they get attacked by the right-wing media being called things like "phony soldiers" and our now going after a general who is against the disaster in Iraq.
Yet when moveon buys an add attacking another general all hell breaks lose. No one is calling for these people to resign or blasting the media for attacking Gen. Sanchez!
So who does really have values? I tell you who doesn't. Republicans ( and Robert if you are an independent as you claim this shouldn't bother you)

Saturday, October 13, 2007
Now I saw on False News where they say he did nothing to deserve it and Petraeus does for continuing the devastation in Iraq I guess I wonder if Bush will have the Supreme Court overturn that like he did after losing the election in 2000. I wouldn't put it past the egomaniac.

COULTER: Well, OK, take the Republican National Convention. People were happy. They're Christian. They're tolerant. They defend America, they --
DEUTSCH: Christian -- so we should be Christian? It would be better if we were all Christian?
DEUTSCH: We should all be Christian?
COULTER: Yes. Would you like to come to church with me, Donny?
DEUTSCH: So I should not be a Jew, I should be a Christian, and this would be a better place?
COULTER: Well, you could be a practicing Jew, but you're not.
DEUTSCH: I actually am. That's not true. I really am. But -- so we would be better if we were - if people -- if there were no Jews, no Buddhists --
COULTER: Whenever I'm harangued by --
DEUTSCH: -- in this country? You can't believe that.
DEUTSCH: That isn't what I said, but you said I should not -- we should just throw Judaism away and we should all be Christians, then, or --
COULTER: Well, it's a lot easier. It's kind of a fast track.
COULTER: Yeah. You have to obey.
DEUTSCH: You can't possibly believe that.
DEUTSCH: You can't possibly -- you're too educated, you can't -- you're like my friend in --
COULTER: Do you know what Christianity is? We believe your religion, but you have to obey.
I HAVE to obey her? Again the ego of these "people" are really deluded and down and out scary. You see the major difference between liberals and these insane nuts are so clear.
Robert this is what you support as a right-winger. I wish you would take a good look at this.
Wednesday, October 10, 2007
How can I support the hate that Coulter,Limbaugh,OReilly,Hannity,Medved,Beck and so many that I have posted all the anger toward. They preach hate, they practice hate and all they understand is hate. They all talk how they never smear yet ALL they do is smear. They are nothing but hypocrites, liars and if that's who I should look up to and strive to become I'd rather be stupid then like those uncaring losers. If these are supposed to be compassionate "people" I'd rather be ignorant.
Think about it in just the past week we continued how Bill O'Reilly proves to be racist. We showed about Rush's hatred toward troops we showed how Bush hates children as he vetoed a bill that would provide health insurance. And as a further insult we have Rush who attacked Michael J. Fox after a commercial. Fox who has parkinson's disease Limbaugh said he was faking his symptoms to get sympathy. I'm supposed to agree with sick freaks like this?
I'm supposed to agree with Coulter who attacks victims of 9/11 widows who just wanted a fair investigation by saying how they are living off their husbands deaths? I'm supposed to agree with the B*tch?
I'm sorry if you like them that's your choice but if you expect me to I won't. Why would I?
And again Robert welcome to my world as a liberal.

“I do think the schedule and the flying is a huge pain for people, particularly those who are from the Midwest or even further West,” he said, adding that it’s “probably the worst part of the job.”
What he is talking about is how the Democrats are actually working a 5 day work week.
It's funny how REPUBLICANS always refer to Democrats as elites yet they are the ones who are snobs. I wonder how this "person" would explain this to those families in his district who have to work 6 days at 60 or more hours a week.

A) Rush Limbaugh can attack the troops and it's called in the media freedom of speech YET moveon attacks Petraeus and they get a senate resolution condemning them. A side note that proves the media with the unbalanced coverage IS NOT LIBERAL!
B) We learned George Bush doesn't care about children as he vetoed a bill that would give children health care coverage.
C) We learned George Bush, the commander in chief, lies to the troops when he says the whatever service they join will pay for their education cause they don't.
D) We learned that Larry Craig is blind to the fact that he is gay and blind to the fact that he plead guilty and he is hurting his party by refusing to step down.
E) We were reminded that the Republican National Convention next year will be held about 8 miles from where Craig had his fun.
F) We were reminded how USC and UCLA have a long way to go in the football as they both suffered embarrassing losses yesterday.

Televise both 1st round National League games one day then the next televise both American League games. Obviously I'm talking first round. That way we can easily see how superior the National League is and most fans won't miss one game cause it's on so early or so late depending on what time zone you are in.
Now onto a few awards.
NL: Jake Peavy
AL: Josh Beckett
NL: Jimmy Rollins
AL: Arod (duh)
NL: Troy Tulowitzki
AL: Dustin Pedroia
Manager of the year
NL: Bob Melvin (although anyone between Melvin, Clint Hurdle,Charlie Manuel, Ned Yost can win)
AL: Eric Wedge. People have made the argument about Mike Scioscia no one expected Cleveland to do anything. That's why I give the nod to Wedge. By the way considering the start they had I would also give a shout out to Joe Torre reluctantly.
Thursday, October 04, 2007
The story show how National Guard troops after serving the longest of anyone in Iraq are being denied the education benefits promised to them when they joined. And Robert as you have fondly put it it's on Bush cause as you say he is the "commander in chief" and ultimately the buck does stop there.
How this is not being reported widely by the media also proves how they do not respect the troops either.
How can this happen.

There is a huge problem in this country, and I'm gonna attack that problem. I'm gonna attack it. These people aren't going to get away this. I'm gonna go right where they live. Every corrupt media person is on notice right now - I'm coming after you. And I don't care if it's Bill O'Reilly, Hillary Clinton, Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney, Barack Obama, anybody smeared by any media from now on I'm holding them accountable. I'm gonna hunt you down, and I mean it. Smear stops here. You're all on notice out there. I'm coming for you.
Now nevermind how he smears and attacks that's a threat and I verified it when I talked to a LAPD officer. I was told I CAN press charges and I think I might. And I am encouraging others to do the same and since he smears and attacks those he disagrees with I wonder if the idiot will then come after himself. He's just as stupid. And we also know he will never go after those who attack Democrats he never does.

That's why this won't go away so easily and it shouldn't cause what he said was wrong, demeaning and outright ignorant.
But that's what O'Idiot is.

As the talk about the Democratic fundraiser being arrested and how all the headlines were right around that story here is some stories that the conservative media ignored:
That story leads to a link showing a top fundraiser for Mitt Romney being arrested. I saw nothing on the news. ANY news network
That leads to a story about McCain's Florida Chairman Bob Allen getting arrested. Made some headlines for the racist remarks he made but disappeared after awhile.
This shows how a reporter was arrested after godforbid asking Guliani a question. Seriously.
Now again I say if this were a liberal media these would be major stories but I hear nothing for the reason the media is right-wing.
Sunday, September 23, 2007
Again I ask a simple question: Where were the so-called liberal media when the swift boaters were attacking John Kerry and comparing Max Cleeland to Osama Bin Laden? Where is the Senate condemning them? Where is the media when Rush compares Barrack Obama to Osama (which he does consistantly) Where is the so-called liberal media when the right continuously says how the liberals are committing treason cause we are against the war?
Why is it that freedom of speech applies only to the right-wing of America and not EVERYONE in America?
Thursday, September 20, 2007
“Mr. President, we have nearly finished this little exhibition, which was staged, I assume, for the benefit of a briefly amused press corps and in deference to political activists opposed to the war.” [Sen. John McCain, 7/18/07]
“We have just seen a procedure in the last 24 hours that was a colossal waste of time.” [Sen. Arlen Specter (R-PA), 7/18/07]
“I want an open and honest debate, and not political posturing. I was sent here to take action, not waste time on non-binding and empty resolutions.” [Sen. Craig Thomas (R-WY), 2/23/07]
Thanks to thinkprogress.org for that.Now I also wonder where these same Republicans are when the swiftboaters were attacking John Kerry when he was running for President? The silence was deafening.
And a reminder that moveon.org is about associated to Democrats as Swift boaters were to Republicans.
If that's not a hypocrite I don't know what is.

Today he is talking about Brian DePalma's new movie which is about a REAL LIFE EVENT where three soldiers ended up being tried, convicted and sentenced for life after raping an Iraqi woman and murdering her family.
Now I realize if it's up to O'Idiot there would be no reporting on the war but this is important because it shows how disrespectfully we, as occupiers, are treating Iraqi citizens. I'm sure it happens more then we will ever know and will ever find out.
But O'Idiot thinks this is just normal behavior. In fact his last quote "Fair minded Americans should realize that in any war, mistakes will be made; horryfying things like Abu Gharib will happen. Thise things need to be dealt with, but not exploited for political gain.
I'm not sure if you realize this but I never heard any statements from DePalma saying yeah this film will help Democrats and Republicans exploit the war every chance they get.
Also the reason our cause is because of events like this and Abu Gharib and the fact we are kidnapping citizens of Iraq and other countries and sending them to places like Abu Gharib and Guantanamo Bay. That's what's hurting our cause.
Wednesday, September 12, 2007
Also the troop "withdraw" is nothing of the sort. All they are doing is leaving the troop level the same as it was BEFORE THE SURGE! Don't believe the lies by Bush.
And understand I didn't post anything yesterday as I always say prayers and remember my friends who died on 9/11. I knew a couple including a firefighter when I lived in New York in 1998 and still kept in touch with when I moved back home and watched them die as the towers fell. And if 9/11 gets me particularly angry toward Bush and will continue until Bush gives a damn about capturing as his quote was "dead or alive" Bin Laden.

So in the column Garza actually has the nerve to compare this woman to Rosa Parks. I mean come on here Parks was a champion for civil rights Arellano hasn't done anything except trying to save her own ass. The media tried to create sympathy for her saying how she was being separated from her son etc. well doesn't anyone care that's the choice SHE made by knowingly breaking the law?
Quit treating her like a hero cause she is a criminal and is getting what she deserves!

What does he have against Firefighters and people who's homes are destroyed with flames?
Wonder what he would have said about the firefighters in the World Trade Center?
USC is so loaded it's scary. They are like a pro team. Better then a few pro teams (my Raiders included). I'll be surprised if they lose a game this year they are so damned talented. The National Championship is theirs to lose.
As far as my UCLA Bruins I see three loses in their schedule. Their defense will keep them in games but the offense is still in question.
Prediction for National Championship game USC vs. Virginia Tech as the sentimental team.
This years surprise team: Hawaii

(mind you I also thought on paper no child left behind was a good idea and we see that's got us nowhere so )
Here is the exact idea
People who have missed mortgage payments are now ineligible for FHA insurance. In the president's plan, they would be eligible if they fall behind only because the amount they are required to pay each month increases, as is now happening with many mortgages issued from 2004 to 2006.
Good for him actually thinking about people for a change. Although I must admit I'm waiting for a catch.

Both are involving sex, both are actually involving illegal sex.
David Vitter admitted having sex with a prostitute on the Washington D.C. madam and Larry Craig was arrested in a gay sex ring in Minnesota.
That's where the similarties end. For some reason Republicans are demanding Craig resign for his actions but not Vitter for basically doing the same thing.
Could it be the only difference is Craig had gay sex or was attempting to? I mean we know how Republicans feel about gay people which is disgusting as it is but could that's the only difference between the two scandals.
And the worse part is how they claim to be the party of values!
Wednesday, August 29, 2007
I have links elsewhere on this site in my archives but a few reasons why this is Bush's fault include:
Bush had funding removed to build up levees to go toward the other failure in Iraq.
Look what happened as a result.
Bush had someone with no disaster training in charge of FEMA (Mike Brown)
Look what happened as a result
New Orleans was declared a Federal Disaster Before Katrina hit. Meaning since Bush is in charge of the Federal Government he was in charge of things like evacuation.
Look what happened.
And like I said you can claim nothing is his fault but I'm sorry the mess that is still down there is on him.

“And Iran’s active pursuit of technology that could lead to nuclear weapons threatens to put a region already known for instability and violence under the shadow of a nuclear holocaust,” he told the American Legion veterans group.“Iran’s actions threaten the security of nations everywhere, and the United States is rallying friends and allies to isolate Iran’s regime, to impose economic sanctions. We will confront this danger before it is too late,”
First of Bush wouldn't know anything about the holocaust in fact his grandfather helped Hitler rise to power http://www.guardian.co.uk/usa/story/0,12271,1312540,00.html so if anything his family has that history.
Second he is using the exact words he used in the run-up to the Iraq occupation which we know he lied under oath about. So I wonder when the people are going to wise up about this lying ahole?
Monday, August 27, 2007
Bush: After months of unfair treatment that has created a harmful distraction at the Justice Dept. It’s sad. (pause) That we live in a time when a talented and honorable person like Alberto Gonzales is impeding from doing important because his good name was dragged through the mud for political reasons.
If Gonzales has been as he said dragged through the mud then he really doesn't live in reality does he? Bush's own party was abaandoning Gonzales and it's sad where only he thinks what he did was ok.
Craig did pay a $500 fine and a jail sentence was stayed .
Just a few votes from Craig just to show he's another Right-Wing hypocrite like all the others
Voted YES on constitutional ban of same-sex marriage. (Jun 2006)
* Voted NO on adding sexual orientation to definition of hate crimes. (Jun 2002)
* Voted NO on expanding hate crimes to include sexual orientation. (Jun 2000)
* Voted YES on prohibiting same-sex marriage. (Sep 1996)
* Voted NO on prohibiting job discrimination by sexual orientation. (Sep 1996)

This article showed that a mine Murray owns in Illinois had exactly 2787 violations since 2005. No that's not a typo. This is the most disturbing part of the story:
n the meeting with top MSHA officials, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader, Murray cited his friendship with Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., the husband of Labor Secretary Elaine Chao who oversees MSHA and demanded Thompson be removed. He was reassigned and later retired.
A: that should automatically prompt an investigation into McConnell because if that is true (mind you I am not saying it is) that makes McConell directly responsible for this tragedy in Utah(I say that because he should have been shut down immediately and it wasn't).
Also not really being discussed much in the media (I saw a blurb on CNN for a minute or so) that three of the people who are missing are illegal aliens. Not American citizens. Someone has some explaining to do.

You remember before the election I made posts about the IRS removing a church from tax exempt status because a guest pastor made anti-bush comments and the right gathered their wagons in outrage as they like to do. I wonder why no outrage at the following as a pastor in Buena Park used his church to endorsed a Republican candidate and ask his followers to pray for the death of the group called him on that.
I hope the group, the American's United for Separation of Church and State have this guy charged with making death threats and I hope they have extra protection cause we know about the religious right and some steps they are willing to do to support their cause.

"It's entertaining, in that I was the greatest critic of the initial four year, three and a half years. I came back from my first trip to Iraq and said, This is going to fail. We've got to change the strategy to the one we are using now. But life isn't fair."
Now thinkprogress has the folowing quotes from the war critic he claims to be:
“But I believe, Katie, that the Iraqi people will greet us as liberators.” [NBC, 3/20/03]
“It’s clear that the end is very much in sight.” [ABC, 4/9/03]
“There’s not a history of clashes that are violent between Sunnis and Shiahs. So I think they can probably get along.” [MSNBC, 4/23/03]
“This is a mission accomplished. They know how much influence Saddam Hussein had on the Iraqi people, how much more difficult it made to get their cooperation.” [This Week, ABC, 12/14/03]
“I’m confident we’re on the right course.” [ABC News, 3/7/04]
“I think the initial phases of it were so spectacularly successful that it took us all by surprise.” [CBS, 10/31/04]
“I do think that progress is being made in a lot of Iraq. Overall, I think a year from now, we will have made a fair amount of progress if we stay the course. If I thought we weren’t making progress, I’d be despondent.” [The Hill, 12/8/05]
You all tell me does that sound like someone who is a critic of the war? Is it any wonder why his campaign is failing miserably. Shame to cause I used to have respect for the "man".
