Problem is in today's day of terrorism those packages looked like bombs and with the "promotion" of the movie turned out to be a busy day for the bomb squad in Boston as they destroyed 10 packages which were suspicious.
Boston I assume will be sending Time Warner the bill.
“I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” he said. “I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”
Now I dont' know who or what Joe Biden watches but just giving a few names on both sides of the isle weren't people like J.C. Watts, Alan Keyes, Jessie Jackson articulate and bright and clean? Agree with them or not on what they say (and believe me I don't) they do have those qualities.
I'm not going to try to interpret what Joe Biden means. Whethere it's intentional or not he just insulted a ton of people on both sides of the isle and he just announced he's running for President. Good job.

Sen. John McCain - October 19,1993
There is no reason for the United States of America to remain in Somalia. The American people want them home, I believe the majority of Congress wants them home, and to set an artificial date of March 31 or even February 1, in my view, is not acceptable. The criteria should be to bring them home as rapidly and safely as possible, an evolution which I think could be completed in a matter of weeks.
Our continued military presence in Somalia allows another situation to arise which could then lead to the wounding, killing or capture of American fighting men and women. We should do all in our power to avoid that.
I listened carefully to the President's remarks at a news conference that he held earlier today. I heard nothing in his discussion of the issue that would persuade me that further U.S. military involvement in the area is necessary. In fact, his remarks have persuaded me more profoundly that we should leave and leave soon.
Dates certain, Mr. President, are not the criteria here. What is the criteria and what should be the criteria is our immediate, orderly withdrawal from Somalia. And if we do not do that and other Americans die, other Americans are wounded, other Americans are captured because we stay too long--longer than necessary--then I would say that the responsibilities for that lie with the Congress of the United States who did not exercise their authority under the Constitution of the United States and mandate that they be brought home quickly and safely as possible [...]
I, along with many others, will have an amendment that says exactly that. It does not give any date certain. It does not say anything about any other missions that the United States may need or feels it needs to carry out. It will say that we should get out as rapidly and orderly as possible.
Thanks to Daily Kos for that.
But it's funny isn't it how when the shoe is on the other foot the Republicans run scared as usual?
Had I watched President Bush's State of the Union address with the volume off, it would have been easy to determine what subject he spoke about simply by observing aisle-divided applause and ovation. The body language of Congress spoke volumes, leading me to ask the following questions of liberal leaders and voters out there:
- Do you hate Bush so much you pray for American failure in Iraq?
- Do you pray the war on terror will return to our soil?
- Do you hate war so much you pray for millions of Iraqis to fall to radicals?
- Now that the midterm election is over, why is it still impossible to unite for the sake of the country?
In Congress, the liberal agenda and hatred for Bush outweigh concern for our national security or worldwide stability. Just ask Sen. Jim Webb, D-Va., who spoke with venom toward Bush last Tuesday, winning praise from Democratic leaders.
I pray the Democrats will unbind Bush and let him do his job. I pray they will show our country and our enemies partisanship can be set aside for true American victory. Failing to act on their newfound power will surely result in consequences for America. Don't choose to pray for forgiveness after it's too late. Choose instead to act in the interest of America now.
First I'll respond to his questions toward liberals being one myself: No. Bush has himself with his stupidity failed in Iraq. THe United States hasn't.
No I don't want another terror attack on my soil. When it eventually happens again Bush has ignored completely
No I don't want Iraq to fall to radicals but again Bush's lack of preparedness is causing that to happen and no matter how many troops he sends it won't change.
If BUSH wants to re-unite the country the burden is on him. Bush always talks about being a uniter and not a divider BUT when push comes to shove he goes against the will of the people and further allienates the people of the country.
Now if the letter writter talks about unity let's take a look here. Bush completely forgot to mention New Orleans in his state of the union address last week for simple reasons I've eluded to many times before. He always talks about wanting bipartisonship but if we don't do what he says he gives a big f-u to everyone.
I'd like to ask a couple of questions to any conservatives who wish to respond:
Are you so loyal to Bush you are obvlivious to what's really happening in Iraq?
Are you willing to have Bush impeached for violating the constitution as he has so many times?
Are you willing to seriously look at Democratic proposals before saying how bipartison we are?
Have you taken a look at the 9/11 comission report?
Congrats America you allowed this to happen. We are no longer a democracy but a dictatorship. We have Adolf Bush in the White House and he is content on taking away our civil rights, privacy, public health, the enviroment you know nothing important.
How? With a stroke of a pen.
n an executive order published last week in the Federal Register, Mr. Bush said that each agency must have a regulatory policy office run by a political appointee, to supervise the development of rules and documents providing guidance to regulated industries. The White House will thus have a gatekeeper in each agency to analyze the costs and the benefits of new rules and to make sure the agencies carry out the president’s priorities.
This strengthens the hand of the White House in shaping rules that have, in the past, often been generated by civil servants and scientific experts. It suggests that the administration still has ways to exert its power after the takeover of Congress by the Democrats.

So our old friend Joe Liberman is at it again. You know Joe, the person who lost his parties primary and still ran anyway as a independent, you know Joe one of the few people who WERE Democrats who support the occupation of Iraq, you know Joe who during the campaign said he would fillibuster with the Democrats but recently said he would fillibuster with Republicans which is what he is. That Joe.
Well on False New Sunday he said he won't probably vote for his alleged party in the 2008 election he will probably vote Republican which is really what this prick is.
You think I'm being too kind??

A) Al Gore's film "An Inconvenient Truth" is going to win an Academy Award and
B) NBC is the most liberal network on air
That's what he said in his column in today's Los Angeles Daily News.
I'll start with Al Gore's film first: You know I, contrary to conservatives like O'Idiot, believe that Global Warming is the cause of the bizarre weather that's occuring throughout the world. Something just isn't right. At least that's what I think. Now I realize the facts about this are lost to people like O'Idiot but that's not suprising considering he has a single digit IQ.
That being said that doesn't mean the film will win an Academy Award. There is no guarentee in the world except death and taxes.
Now regarding the Networks of NBC. The only liberal on their series of network is Keith Olbermann and I think he's jealous (another typical trait) because Olbermann is gaining on him in his ratings which he used to have a stranglehold on. Other then that Joe Scarlboro, Chris Matthews, contributors like Pat Buchanon are nothing but conservative. I wish I knew what O'Idiot smokes cause he is on something.
So in conclusion O'Idiot is may or may not be right on point A. I hope An Inconvenient Truth does win and I especially hope in the winning speech he sticks it to people like O'Idiot. And regards to NBC he, as usual, has no clue what he is talking about.

I have an answer to that: IT'S WINTER IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE COLD! It's funny how quickly people forgot how warm it was just a week prior. People won't learn.

Again my observation is he looks scared. Like a little child afraid of the dark. He lost the swagger he used to have.

Now let me see summing up the race so far: On the Democratic side we have a women, Clinton, a latino (Richardson) and an African-American (Obama) and nothing but middle to old age caucasions on the republican side. Who is more inclusive?

Colts over Patriots
Saints over Bears
It would be somewhat ironic if the Colts game came down to a field goal wouldn't it?
Bears will have a weather advantage but I have been on the Saints bandwagon for awhile in terms of my predictions and I mine as well continue.

Boxer said, "Who pays the price? I'm not going to pay a personal price. My kids are too old, and my grandchild is too young," to serve, Boxer told Rice. "You're not going to pay a price, as I understand it, within immediate family. So who pays the price? The American military and their families.''
That's not anything more then what it is. An accurate statement of fact. But that doesn't stop FoxNews being the pigs that they are. Here are the headlines at Fox as well as the Rupert Murdoch owned New York Post:
The Murdoch-owned New York Post front page ran the headline "It's War. Dem Childless Condi Slur," and inside wrote, "The vapidity - the sheer mindlessness - of Sen. Boxer's assertion makes it clear that the next two years are going to be a time of bitterness and rancor, marked by pettiness of spirit and political self-indulgence of a sort not seen in America for a very long time."
Fox News ran headlines all day Friday on the topic, such as, "Will Boxer Apologize?'' and "Boxer Slimes Rice.'' The White House Fox contributor, Tony Snow said, Boxer's comments were "outrageous" and "a great leap backward for feminism.''
Obviously Murdoch and Fox didn't see the transcript or are just too stupid to know exactly what it meant.

if we were to follow their guidance — the comments, for example, that a lot of them made during the last campaign about withdrawing U.S. forces — we simply go back and revalidate the strategy that Osama bin Laden has been following from day one, that if you kill enough Americans, you can force them to quit, that we don't have the stomach for the fight. That's not an answer....
The most dangerous blunder here would be if, in fact, we took all of that effort that's gone in to fighting the global war on terror and the great work that we have done in Pakistan and Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia and across the globe out there and saw it dissipated because the United States now decides that Iraq is too tough and we're going to pack it in and go home. And we leave high and dry those millions of people in their part of the world that have signed on in support of the U.S. or supported governments that are allied with the U.S. in this global conflict.
This is an existential conflict.
Now it's obvious to everyone BUT the Bush Administration that THINGS AREN'T OK! The everything is ok BS that these idiots are trying to tell us isn't working. EVERYONE but these morons know that. Doesn't stop them and the media who doesn't challenge them when they just obviously lie when they do to get away with what they are doing. I wonder if they realize how much they are hurting their party in the 2008 election. I don't think they care either.

So in his radio address President Moron said the following:
Members of Congress have a right to express their views, and express them forcefully. But those who refuse to give this plan a chance to work have an obligation to offer an alternative that has a better chance for success. To oppose everything while proposing nothing is irresponsible.
Well since he is not, as usual, paying attention here is John Murtha's (D, PA.) plan:
- To immediately redeploy U.S. troops consistent with the safety of U.S. forces.
- To create a quick reaction force in the region.
- To create an over- the- horizon presence of Marines.
- To diplomatically pursue security and stability in Iraq.
ur most important recommendations call for new and enhanced diplomatic and political efforts in Iraq and the region, and a change in the primary mission of U.S. forces in Iraq that will enable the United States to begin to move its combat forces out of Iraq responsibly.
...Given the ability of Iran and Syria to influence events within Iraq and their interest in avoiding chaos in Iraq, the United States should try to engage them constructively.
... The primary mission of U.S. forces in Iraq should evolve to one of supporting the Iraqi army, which would take over primary responsibility for combat operations. By the first quarter of 2008, subject to unexpected developments in the security situation on the ground, all combat brigades not necessary for force protection could be out of Iraq.... The United States must not make an openended commitment to keep large numbers of American troops deployed in Iraq.

New England over San Diego
Baltimore over Indianapolis
Seattle over Chicago
New Orleans over Philadelphia
San Diego has a habit of blowing it in the playoffs and New England I think has momentum. Baltimore has the team to once again prove how overrated the Colts are. Chicago will go as far as Rex Grossman will carry them and New Orleans will end Philadelphia's magic.

"The fundamental decision to stay on offence and to finish the job, I think is correct, and we believe the president is heading in the right direction and tend to support him,"
"Congress is completely incapable of dictating the tactics of the war."
Reid has said he will schedule a vote on a nonbinding bill expressing disapproval of Bush's new policy, but McConnell's filibuster threat indicated that he would not be rushed into the vote. Under the Senate's rules, 60 votes are required to cut off debate on an issue, and even the threat of a filibuster can force concessions by the majority.
So let me get this straight if I understand this: Democrats couldn't filibuster Republican bills but Republicans can filibuster Democrat Bills?? Sad what babies they are aren't they?
I hope the Republican Presidential (and Democrat) Candidates who support the loser and this war will suffer complete and utter embarrassment come election time next year.

So Bush, who doesn't care about what the people think, is giving a big f-u to the America public yet again. The American people want our troops home and instead of listening and letting the Iraqi people deal with their civil war he is sending more troops mainly to appease 2008 Republican Presidential Nominee John McCain. I hope people remember this next year.

How come any right-wing talk show host/commentator can make threats like that and be arrested like other people would? Just wondering cause it's sick. And what's really sad is since the right-wingers are sheep and listen and have they ever thought when they say those stupid-ass things that people will follow-up on them? I bet they didn't.
Wonder when we were going to be told about this. Bush it seems gave authorization so our personal private mail can be read. I'll repeat OUR personal private mail can be read by anyone.
You wonder why this son of a bitch pisses me off. We have lost so many of our civil rights under this a$$hole we have become a nazi state. I'm jewish and I'm saying this. When are people going to rise up and demand our civil rights back? I wonder why people want to come here anymore.

The counterpoint was made by Virgil Goode. Yes that Virgil Goode who bashed Ellison mercilessly for choosing to be sworn by his religion in private instead of something he doesn't believe in.
Now Goode may be a proud Christian and if that's what he feels and thinks that's his business I will never argue with that. Where I differ with him and anyone with any religion is when they force it on people like Goode is doing. Religion should be upto that individual and no one else.
And another thing if you read the story I gave he goes into a thing about illegal immigration especially from muslims since he feels they are all terrorists apparently and I have said this so many times and I will continue to say this:
The ONLY WAY TO STOP ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION IS TO ARREST,SEVERLY FINE,OR CLOSE BUSINESSES THAT HIRE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS!

Knowledge of Job:
Times Ratings: Below expectations
My Rating: Below Average. I think for me that his stubborness gets the best of him most of the time (as it does a lot of people) and the fact is when he speaks he really doesn't come across with confidence and knowledge that it takes to be President.
Times Ratings: Below expectations
My Rating: Average. Fact is he had a Congress, Senate, and Supreme Court in his back pocket so he got most of what he wanted accomplished. Even though what he wanted killed 3000 soldiers and destroyed a lot of jobs and lives it was his agenda.
Critical thinking skills:
Times Ratings: Meets expectations
My Rating: Below Average. I say that because let's face some facts: Bush isn't the brightest bulb out there. I think that effects his decision skills or lack thereof.
Works well with others:
Times Ratings: Meets expectations
My Ratings: Below average. Now here is my reasoning on this. Take a look at the 9/11 and Iraq Comissions. He ordered them then chose to ignore ALL of their recommendations so in other words the same things that made us vulnerable before 9/11/01 are still there today.
Times Ratings: Exceeds expectations
My Ratings: Below average. We have a record deficit. We owe so much money do foreign countries it aint funny. It's sad and sick. Under Bill Cliton we had a surplus and Bush pissed it all away. Imagine what good he could have done. Oh yeah one other thing regarding this Bush took money out of funding to shore up the levees around New Orleans to help fund the Iraq Occupation. Look what that got.
Areas for improvement:
I feel this: I think Bush needs to stop listening to people like Cheney and listen to the people who elected him. Especially since he is starting a bit to talk about his legacy. He ignored the Iraq and 9/11 comissions and he is ignoring the people who want to trust and like him. And it's costing him and his party.
