Patriots are too deep too talented to lose

Funny how I noted this a couple of days ago and as I said I knew Bush would spin this but this shows how Al Qaida is back to levels as they were before 9/11 and Afghanistan and Pakistan are as dangerous as they were before 9/11.

Well I'm sure he forgot but someone about a month after 9/11 sent anthrax to Tom Daschle of South Dakota and Patrick Leahy of Vermont as well as ABC News, CBS News, NBC News, the New York Post and the National Inquirer. The terrorist attacks killed 5 people and injured 17 others. Like the person responsible for 9/11 the person who initiated the attacks have not been brought to justice further proving what a failure Bush is as President.
But if you look at who was attacked Bush probably thanked that person.
“Over the past 7 years, we have increased funding for veterans by more than 95 percent. As we increase funding, we must also reform our veterans system to meet the needs of a new war and a new generation.”
The shows how the American Journal of Public Health reports there are 1.8 MILLION VETERENS who are UNINSURED and UNABLE to get care in veterans facilities. As I said how he treats the troops makes me sick as does he in general.

“The people’s trust in their Government is undermined by congressional earmarks — special interest projects that are often snuck in at the last minute, without discussion or debate.”
Now that may sound accurate and right but if you take a look here are some facts Bush left out:
Among earmarks that GEORGE BUSH put in the budget are money for projects for HIS WIFE and FATHER.
And if you take a look there were more earmarks when Republicans were in charge then when Democrats.
The first defense appropriations bill Bush signed had 994 earmarks, then in 2002 1409 earmarks in 2004 there were 2208 in 2005 there were2506 earmarks.
http://www.fas.org/sgp/crs/misc/m012606.pdf is the full report.
But as usual Bush doesn't lay the blame where it should be.
Odds are he will say nothing.

Tornado Warning Thursday in Malibu
Avalanche in our mountains due to (of course) heavy snow
Fred Thompson dropped out of the Republican race for President (again the savior of the Republican party according to the media when he announced)
Dennis Kucinich dropped out of the Democratic Presidential Race ( I don't know how many people knew he was running sadly)
Heath Ledger died, False News John Gibson makes fun of it calling him a "weirdo" and mocking him on the Brokeback Mountain line "I wish I knew how to quit you" saying "Well, he found out how to quit you" really tasteful Fox.
The Monte Carlo Hotel caught fire in Las Vegas
We have the Democratic Primary in South Carolina today and Florida for both Democrats and Republicans on Tuesday and what will probably be Rudy Gulliani's last stand (thank god)

Situation was this. I was sitting with two friends of mine (both female) one goes outside to smoke so I'm there with her sister. Guy comes down asks if he can sit there we both say no cause our friend is sitting there the idiot does anyway. (We both knew he was drunk the second he came to us and we never saw the idiot there before) He sat down anyway starts taking my frineds drink then starts taking my drink we both tell him to get away then he starts grabbed his hand up my friends dress grabbing her a**. I go stand by my friend and the idiot leaves.
My friend and I start talking and I turn around and he is sitting where the karaoke host sits and is playing with his equipment when the host got up for a second. The host has several thousand dollars worth of karaoke equipment and has already been hit at the spot and has had a heart attack. I say to him that he can't sit there he should get up the idiot says to me " F you get out of my face" nevermind I wasn't really in his face but that's not really the point.
After that he starts harassing the karaoke host and my two female friends and I try to separate him as we thought he was going to attack the host. Security finally came and he shoved one of my female friends. Security took him out of the building and other then being annoyed we were trying to go on with enjoying ourselves.
The idiot comes back in through another entrance and one of my friends decides to escort the idiot out I decide to follow cause I didn't want to see this person hurt my friend which I htought he was going to. My friend was outside trying to calm the idiot down then he starts challenging me. Seriously out of the blue I am standing there just watching. I tell him if he has a problem with me I'm right here and then he punches me square in the mouth. I for some strange reason don't go down but while I was going to kill the punk a** security came and started spraying the idiot with pepper spray. The idiot took off.
The cops came and they found the idiot passed out face first on Ventura Blvd at Tampa. My friend and I went to idendify him and we DID press charges. I got a split lip out of the situation trying to be there for my friend.
Moral of the story is don't get involved.

If I hear anyone say it works we need to only look where we are now for proof!

ive score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Negro slaves who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of captivity. But one hundred years later, we must face the tragic fact that the Negro is still not free.
One hundred years later, the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination. One hundred years later, the Negro lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. One hundred years later, the Negro is still languishing in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land.
So we have come here today to dramatize an appalling condition. In a sense we have come to our nation's capital to cash a check. When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir.
This note was a promise that all men would be guaranteed the inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note insofar as her citizens of color are concerned.
Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the Negro people a bad check which has come back marked "insufficient funds." But we refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation.
So we have come to cash this check - a check that will give us upon demand the riches of freedom and the security of justice. We have also come to this hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice. Now is the time to open the doors of opportunity to all of God's children. Now is the time to lift our nation from the quicksands of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood.
It would be fatal for the nation to overlook the urgency of the moment and to underestimate the determination of the Negro. This sweltering summer of the Negro's legitimate discontent will not pass until there is an invigorating autumn of freedom and equality. Nineteen sixty-three is not an end, but a beginning. Those who hope that the Negro needed to blow off steam and will now be content will have a rude awakening if the nation returns to business as usual. There will be neither rest nor tranquility in America until the Negro is granted his citizenship rights.
The whirlwinds of revolt will continue to shake the foundations of our nation until the bright day of justice emerges. But there is something that I must say to my people who stand on the warm threshold which leads into the palace of justice. In the process of gaining our rightful place we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred.
We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. we must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence. Again and again we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force.
The marvelous new militancy which has engulfed the Negro community must not lead us to distrust of all white people, for many of our white brothers, as evidenced by their presence here today, have come to realize that their destiny is tied up with our destiny and their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom.
We cannot walk alone. And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall march ahead. We cannot turn back. There are those who are asking the devotees of civil rights, "When will you be satisfied?" we can never be satisfied as long as our bodies, heavy with the fatigue of travel, cannot gain lodging in the motels of the highways and the hotels of the cities. We cannot be satisfied as long as the Negro's basic mobility is from a smaller ghetto to a larger one. We can never be satisfied as long as a Negro in Mississippi cannot vote and a Negro in New York believes he has nothing for which to vote. No, no, we are not satisfied, and we will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream.
I am not unmindful that some of you have come here out of great trials and tribulations. Some of you have come fresh from narrow cells. Some of you have come from areas where your quest for freedom left you battered by the storms of persecution and staggered by the winds of police brutality. You have been the veterans of creative suffering. Continue to work with the faith that unearned suffering is redemptive.
Go back to Mississippi, go back to Alabama, go back to Georgia, go back to Louisiana, go back to the slums and ghettos of our northern cities, knowing that somehow this situation can and will be changed. Let us not wallow in the valley of despair. I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.
I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal." I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slaveowners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood. I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a desert state, sweltering with the heat of injustice and oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice. I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I have a dream today.
I have a dream that one day the state of Alabama, whose governor's lips are presently dripping with the words of interposition and nullification, will be transformed into a situation where little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls and walk together as sisters and brothers. I have a dream today. I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight, and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together. This is our hope. This is the faith with which I return to the South. With this faith we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day.
This will be the day when all of God's children will be able to sing with a new meaning, "My country, 'tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing. Land where my fathers died, land of the pilgrim's pride, from every mountainside, let freedom ring." And if America is to be a great nation, this must become true. So let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire. Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York. Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania! Let freedom ring from the snowcapped Rockies of Colorado! Let freedom ring from the curvaceous peaks of California! But not only that; let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia! Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee! Let freedom ring from every hill and every molehill of Mississippi. From every mountainside, let freedom ring.
When we let freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, "Free at last! free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!"

Again I would like to remind everyone what is going to happen when our soldiers get captured which will be the same treatment as we give our prisoners. And we have no right to complain when that happens. And as always since he authorized it the blood will be on Bush's hands!

So many layoffs, companies losing billions. We hear how inflation keeps rising but we hear nothing from the President who lives in Fantasyland.
For my job it requires me to talk to businesses and I speak with companies, some big, some small but a lot of people who say they are out of business.
I realize he is gone in about a year so he realizes he doesn't need to care but if he worries about his legacy which he claims something needs to be done.
And another question when are company CEO's going to EVER be held accountable for their actions which cost their companies billions of dollars?
Green Bay vs New England. I admit I'm a big Brett Farve fan and would love to see him have a shot at one more ring. On paper this would be the best match-up.
However I would like to present another interesting option which is New York Giants vs San Diego Chargers. Now as a Raiders fan I hate San Diego and everything they stand for. I think their fans (speaking from experience dealing with them at bars and at a game) make Raiders fans look like angels (yeah I'm saying that and if you ever had San Diego fans spit on you and throw things at you as I have you would feel the same) . What makes this interesting is you have two qb's who were traded for each other, Eli Manning and Phillip Rivers,two qb's who have faced a lot of criticism and two qb's who were top 5 picks.
So there you have it.

“Dr King’s dream began to be realised when President Lyndon Johnson passed the Civil Rights Act of 1964. It took a president to get it done.”
Honestly that's the truth. It took President Johnson to get that legislation through a then hostile Democratic Congress, specifically then racist Southern Democrats (who have now become Republicans) to have Dr. Kings dream passed and it took President Johnson to get the legislation signed.
But the media, ever eager to pile on Hillary, is making this a huge issue to drive a wedge between her and Barrack Obama. I don't understand the hatred the media has toward her and I probably never will but I always find it funny how the media let's others of THEIR profession get away with saying worse.
I think part of it is the media is mad cause they were predicting Obama to win in New Hampshire and were completely wrong.
If only the media would treat someone who deserves such venom, like Bush, the same way.

Here is why right-wingers piss me off. In Bill O'Idiots column in the Los Angeles Daily News he says hostility toward Fox News is "going to far" and yet if you read the column he shows why there is so much hatred to false news.
Let's start with the obvious lie from them how they claim they are "fair and balanced". If anyone watches false news knows they are a 24 hour publicity hound for the GOP. I have listed hundred upon hundreds of quotes showing how not fair nor balanced they are.
Second they have a bunch of bullies on that network like O'Idiot. I mean take a look at that link I put up for proof and again I have so many proof of threats toward people from O'Idiot on my site and they claim how fair they are? What a crock of BS.
Third is they set themselves up. They personally attack liberal candidates and groups and they don't expect hostility toward them in return? Even in his column he attacks "creepy left group moveon.org" and in the fantasyland he lives in he doesn't think it's wrong and he expects nothing to happen in return.
Fourth look at O'Idiot. In one breath he smears attacks and insults people yet in the very next breath he'll claim he doesn't do any of that. I mean he started an enemies list on his website of people he doesn't like. Think about it. And he doesn't expect people to be hostile toward him?
Even at the link he shows he's such an egomaniac that he actually shoves an Obama staffer out of the way calling him a "sob". Now if he ever put any hands on me I would file charges immediately. But that's not the first time he has done anything like that. He sends his producers to stalk people he invented a phony war on Christmas he lives in dreamworld.
So those are 5 reason why people hate false news. I will probably think of many others.
By the way I don't claim to be fair or balanced with me you know what you get

Bush said "Israel has to stop occupying Arab land" regarding Palestine
Now I'm not sure how much Bush knows what ACTUALLY happened BUT this is land Israel won when ARAB countries decided to attack Israel and failed miserably. And I've never really understood why Palestinians really blame Israel when it's Egypt's, Lebanon, Syria who really is to blame. Another thing I don't understand is if you look at the original plan for a Palestinian state is it was supposed to include parts of Syria and Egypt YET they have NEVER been asked to make sacrifices giving up their land? It's all been up to Israel who should NOT have to give up any land until it's shown that the Palestinians sole purpose is to destroy Israel which is something they said they want time after time.
And another thing Bush SHOULD NOT be doing is making stupid-ass comments like that because the UNITED STATES is doing the same exact thing right now in Iraq.
I always said those who fail to understand history are doomed to repeat it. Bush is proving that as always.

I also remember when Keith Ellison got elected to Congress as the first Muslim-American many people felt for the sole reason he was part Muslim he should not be allowed to serve because so many people associate being Muslim as being a terrorist. In fact I have the comment in my archives from Glen Beck (on CNN Headline News) directly commenting to Ellison "hey are you a terrorist?"
Also Obama has also taken heat from guys like Limbaugh who compare him to Osama intentionally to try to compare him to a terrorist which any sane person knows is not true.
This is not saying anyone who believes a woman or an African American or a Muslim or anyone of a different race or sex doesn't deserve to be President is a racist. They are truly though I feel resistant to change and resistant to except the fact there are more qualified people to be President then middle aged white males.

I'm wondering why it seems the media is seemingly telling the media who to vote for instead of people like myself who do their own research.
For example you noticed how for a long time McCain was the media darling from the Republicans then all the sudden the media seemed to jump on the Fred Thompson bandwagon when he entered the race then all the sudden the media jumped on the Romney bandwagon then he slipped and then the media jumped on Huckabee bandwagon now the right wing media is back on the McCain bandwagon since it appears he is going to win the New Hampshire Primary tonight.
Then on the Democrats side it seemed the media had a forgone conclusion the election was Hillary's to lose but now the media is jumping on the Obama bandwagon. Now to me the best Democratic Candidate is no longer in the race and never seemed to get any media coverage to begin with which is really strange as well.
So the question is is the media reacting to the people or is it vice versa.
One more comment on the right-wing media how come when Al Gore ran the media complained all the time how he was a robot now they are complaining how Hillary is too emotional? Talk about bias showing.

You know everything the Bush Administration (especially the so-called President)says is a lie so why does this quote not surprise me at today's daily briefing:
So we have a few quotes:
QUESTION: Senator Clinton said on Saturday that the U.S. economy was slipping towards a recession. Is that a view the White House shares; why or why not?
FRATTO: I don’t know of anyone predicting a recession.
Harvard University economist Martin Feldstein: We are now talking about [a recession happening] more likely than not. … I have been saying about 50 percent. This now pushes it up a bit above that.” [1/5/08]
Lawrence Summers: “[T]he odds now favour a US recession that slows growth significantly on a global basis. Without stronger policy responses than have been observed to date, moreover, there is the risk that the adverse impacts will be felt for the rest of this decade and beyond.” [11/25/07]
National Association for Business Economics survey: “The number of economists forecasting the U.S. will slip into recession almost doubled over the last two months.” [11/19/07]
Warren Buffett: “If I had to pick the chances that we are going into a recession, I would say they are fairly significant.” [10/29/07]
CBO Director Peter Orszag: “The risk of a recession is clearly elevated.” [9/18/07]
So these people are no ones?? Give me a break. I wish I could snap my fingers like Bush thinks he can and say everything's alright when way smarter people then he are saying it isn't. Bush either doesn't pay attention or doesn't care. Either way as usual he's wrong. Ignoring it is not the answer.

Personally I don't miss the NFL. We usually get the best games on TV each week and as the NFL surely sees ratings are up in Los Angeles.
I do know though the NFL needs Los Angeles.
I also know the NFL has said they will NOT (thank god) put a team in the Los Angeles Coliseum.
So where does it go from here? We will see.
Saturday, January 05, 2008
MSNBC’s Mike Barnicle: “McCain’s stance on the war. They view it because of who he is and the eye contact during these town meetings. He’s the Babe Ruth of town meetings.”
Fox News’ Greta van Susteren: “I can’t think of anyone happier tonight than Sen. John McCain.”
Politico’s Mike Allen: “Tonight is a fantastic night for John McCain. … He’s one of the biggest winners of the night.”
Newsweek’s Jon Meacham: “To me, the great story about Sen. McCain is, when in doubt, give principle a try.”
Fox News’ Carl Cameron: “Inside Washington, he’s been a real maverick outsider.”
I mean he lost to Huckabee,Romney,Thompson and he's being hailed as a hero. For that matter why isn't the media giving Edwards more publicity for his 2nd place finish yesterday still giving their coverage to Hillary?
Thursday, January 03, 2008
Democrats: Barack Obama
Republicans: Mike Huckabee
Funny Obama spent the most money in Iowa among Democrats and won yet Huckabee spent the least amount of money among Republicans and won.
I would sure hate to be on the plane ride to New Hampshire with Hillary Clinton tonight.
Ladies and Gentlemen I would like to remind you this is only round one. There are 49 more states with New Hampshire voting on Tuesday.
Wednesday, January 02, 2008
With the caucus tomorrow and ours in February I would like to ask the following questions about what you think. This applies to any candidate from any party:
Who do you think will be the best on policy?
Who is showing leadership?
Who is playing to win?
Who is the best defender of your ideals?
Who is the most likeable?
Who do you think will make the best President?
Who should the Vice President be?
We have turmoil in Bush dictator supported in Pakistan
We have the Iowa Caucus tomorrow
We should know who the Democratic and Republican nominees are in about a month or so after Super Tuesday
Welcome to 2008
