Yet Another Question For Judge Roberts 
The Supreme Court will soon be asked to ruie on the legality of depriving brown men with beards who aren't Christian or Jewish the legality of suspending constitutional guarantees like trial by jury, habeas corpus and other long standing American judicial principles. What are your thoughts on this issue?

President 2008 = Barbara Boxer. The only senator to go on record to have every vote counted. I know Republicans take democracy lightly but isn't voting at the core of America? Every eligible adult can vote and every eligible vote is counted? Why do Republicans like George Bush, Sandra Day O'Connor, John Bolton, Tom DeLay hate our freedoms?

A Question for Supreme Court Nominee Roberts 
Please, please, will some Democratic Senator please ask this question at his hearing?

Judge Roberts, if say someone, like a Vice President, is a party to an upcoming case on the Supreme Court's calendar then invites you to go duck hunting what would you do?

Shouldn't we send him some pretzels?

Kind Of Like Flypaper - Except We Are The Ones Stuck 
It appears as if many Arabs have decided that fighting the US in Iraq is better than fighting the US at home. Way to go, Miserable Failure guy!

James Wolcott, Patriot Extraordinaire 
Who else could write:
Woodward missed the real story that, in the words of the Downing Street memo, our leaders were losing track of Osama while they spent their time 'fixing the intelligence' on Iraq.

Bush - An irresolute wastrel 
Bush chided his French guest with this rousing diatribe:
And that means different things for different nations. Some nations don't want to contribute troops, and we understand that. Other nations can contribute intelligence-sharing, and for that we're grateful. But all nations, if they want to fight terror, must do something. It is time for action. And that's going to be the message of my speech at the United Nations.

I have no specific nation in mind, at least as I stand here now. Everybody ought to be given the benefit of the doubt. But over time, it's going to be important for nations to know they will be held accountable for inactivity. You are either with us or you are against us in the fight against terror.

"Other nations can contribute intelligence-sharing, and for that we're grateful." Yeah, right. What if your name is Valerie Plame? What country can trust the Miserable Failure's White House with secret intelligence? If Bush is so resolute why can't he find out who outed a CIA agent with his top political advisor?

Just A Reminder 
Rove hasn't done his frog march/perp walk yet so rejoicing is premature. Don't forget, he was only one of two senior White House advisors known leaking a covert CIA agent's name to the press. Come to think of it, Novak referred to two senior Whore House officials but, ala Orient Express, everyone aboard Air Force One that day might have taken a stab by calling one or more "reporters".

Has It Been Two Years Already? 
Sadly, Yes! Happy Blogtopiaversary, Sadly, No!

Shh! Don't tell the California DMV 
As you may be aware, the DMV is responsible for making sure vanity plates don't have lewd or profane phrases. It was with great amusement that I noticed California regulation plates, not vanity plates, had

and I 5hit you not, a few cars down was

BTW, vanity plates are not allowed to follow the same pattern as regulation plates so they weren't vanity plates that snuck through but part of the 5HIT* sequence...

Just Because You're Paranoid... 
... it doesn't mean they aren't after you. Daily Kos banned a huge amount of his formerly loyal readers for speculation. I remember my conspiracy theory that made my wife a believer in theories based on deduction and induction rather than a smoking gun tape. Nancy Kerrigan had her leg broken by two large guys. I speculated it was one of the other Olympic skaters that had it done. My wife guffawed in disbelief. Tanya Harding's arrest caused my wife to apologize.

A word of advice to Kos, (given here so he won't ban me), a theory's usefulness is in its ability to predict outcomes. Many of those Kos banned in a fit of righteous indignation had predicted an attack to help Bush's sagging poll numbers. Yes - it's not proof but it isn't like agent provocateurs are going to take out a full page ad in the New York Times saying, "Don't be alarmed, we are only doing it for your own good."

The G8 violence, like the Seattle WTO violence, was ascribed to anarchists (as opposed to agent provocateurs) it ignores the fundamental question - how in the hell do anarchists get organized? Agent provocateurs, however, do have a long, if benighted, history of organizing for action.

Sick joke of the day - What do Iraqi golfers call 50 London bombing deaths in one day?

Funny He Should Mention That 
Voice of America "reports" Bush said, "I know that by carrying the spirit of 1776 into this new age, we will leave a stronger and better country for all who call this great land home." Did anyone consider that Bush's deeds have many parallels in the original indictment of King George in the Declaration of Independence.

The Return Of King George The Tyrant 
(This is a repost of the post that started my blog online magazine.)
July is as good a time as any to re-read the Declaration of Independence. Much to my surprise I found history repeating itself. America faced a tyrant in King George over 200 years ago. The Declaration had more than just that stirring first paragraph. It also had a laundry list of grievances the Colonists held against the Empire. A list that sounds shockingly familiar today.

We hold these truths to be self-evident

I will not be relying on Fox News, Tom Delay or Robert Novak for validation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. --That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

The above paragraph would have earned Thomas Jefferson and John Hancock a one way ticket to Guantanamo.

He has refuted his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
George Bush has single handedly (without the advise and consent of the Senate) abrogated more treaties than all of his predecessors combined.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

Okay, he hasn't gotten this far, yet. But he and his minions have called into question the patriotism and loyalty of any and all who have questioned his policies.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.
Long held judicial constructs that have served this country for centuries, habeas corpus, presumption of innocence, trial by jury are suspended when it is a terrorist. ???? What American jury would have trouble convicting and sentencing to death or life imprisonment someone that has been proved to be guilty of terrorism? None that I know of and yet Bush's Attorney General has put together a system where the President and his appointees will be prosecutor, judge, jury, court of last resort and executioner.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

Did you know the Department of Fatherland... err Homeland Security is the largest bureaucracy ever?

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

See Patriot Act I. Soon to be followed by Patriot Act II.

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
American corporations' brands are suffering from the anti-American sentiment engendered by Bush's policies.

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
While no billionaire is left behind, states, cities and schools are having to charge fees to use public parks, libraries or are having to cut back vital services like police and fire. A hidden tax increase obscured by the tax cuts for rich people.

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:
See Guantanamo reference above.

For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:
See Guantanamo reference above.

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

Trial by a jury of peers and presumption of innocence - extravagence or essential?

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

Why, exactly, is Bush afraid of an unfettered 9/11 investigation?

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

Oh, wait, they are called the coalition of the willing but more accurately, they have been referred to as the Coalition of the Billing...

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

15 million people peacefully protested Bush's lies before he condemned the first American soldier to death. He dismissed them as "a focus group."

Just a quick note, before Abu Gonzalez gets his panties in a twist, all passages marked in italics are from the The Declaration of Independence. I suggest he reads it right after he reads the Constitution of the United States of America, the quaint document he swore to uphold when he took office.

Now That's Funny - Part Two 
A search engine optimization site, tries out MSN's inanchor command using miserable failure...

Now That's Funny 
Yooter InterActive has discovered the largest Google Bomb ever. With 130 Million results in Google, Bloggers manage to rank George Bush #1 for the keyword 'failure'.

Let me count the ways...

AS I recall, Bush hit the #1 spot for just the word "failure" over a year ago.

Was That A Good Idea? 
Yes, I know; Bush has had several bad news cycles since his disastrous speech trying to justify his disastrous war. Is announcing the bombing of a suspected terrorist hideout supposed to make it go away? Especially when this hideout was in the vicinty of the missing seven American soldiers? What if they were in there as hostages or prisoners?

Off The Wall Guess 
Bush will nominate to the Supreme Court one of the justices the Democrats threatened to filibuster. Why? Because he can. Think Bolton and the UN. Think of a monkey throwing his feces around. Think Bush. I am sorry; I repeat myself.
