yet another reason we are in a shit hole.

Greenspan says:

"They swapped principle for power. They ended up with neither. They deserved to lose" in the 2006 election, when they lost control of the House and Senate.

Look, someone kicked over another rock.

Just when you thought the upcoming election wasn't quite sleazy enough. Apparently Newtie thinks everyone has forgotten what a scumbag he truly is.??

For the record, I will run for President for ten million.

Does anyone feel a Draft?

It has been a long time since U.S. Citizens have experienced non-voluntary conscription. With all this rhetoric about Iran, Syria and North Korea, and the Israeli's recent air strikes into Syria ....made me start thinking about the real potential for the U.S. to seriously need to consider a "Draft".

"It will never happen", "we don't need a draft", "We have plenty of forces available".

I don't know about you, but I have heard the above quotes for a number of years. To be honest I have believed them to be accurate and have not given the "Draft" any real serious consideration. Given current events and our administrations inadequacies in diplomacy...or rather the complete failure of any resemblance of foreign policy..other than "we'll kick your ass"...I started wondering why todays 18-42 year olds are not a bit more concerned.

I was surprised by the selective service site (see above link) and the fact that within 193 days from the Presidents signing new recruits would start reporting.....

I was surprised that recent bills contained significant conscription changes.

or do we believe this link and rest a bit?

KO gets a bit dramatic, but his points ring true

Why have we not sought to Impeach?, and while we are at it throw out every single member of the Senate and member of the House.

The spokesperson for the republican party

Great post from "Left in East Dakota"

I just read this on "Left in East Dakota".

I felt I needed to post it here also....I really like Graeme's blog you should check it out

A breath of sane air

Mohamed ElBaradei:
"I repeat: we have not seen any undeclared facilities operating in Iran, we have not seen any concrete evidence that the Iran program is being weaponized. We have not received any information to that effect. So, I haven't heard any other information, to the contrary. So while we are still concerned about the nature of the Iranian program, we should not... I do not believe, at this stage, that we are facing clear and present danger that requires that we go beyond diplomacy."
ElBaradei also said:
"I would not talk about any use of force. There are rules on how to use force, and I would hope that everybody would have gotten the lesson after the Iraq situation, where 700,000 innocent civilians have lost their lives on the suspicion that a country has nuclear weapons."
Put in the context of today's world, these are radical statements. They ought to be on the front page of every newspaper in the country.

Fighting Back

If you visited the Say Anything so again...the topic is worth discussion and there are valuable talking points...
for the record it was not Rob Port who made the sexist comment.....lable withdrawn...
He is a Right Winger that can swing hard... I'm sure he can take it.

Guns in School, Great Idea?

And this is a cop with a gun in school.
Good thing he has the proper training...maybe schools could hire him to teach the teachers how to handle a firearm? He does a marvelous job with this room full of youngsters.

Say Anything blog-does this make sense?

I keep going back to "Say Anything". I just got the biggest charge out of this post. I am not sure if they are serious, but I sure hope they are. I have been wondering why I am so completely opposite of so many views on that blog.

Ignorant, sexist, arrogant, un-educated,....I'll stop have to go check it out, seriously..It is the absolute best and of course the absolute worst all wrapped into one.

Should teachers bring guns to school?

I find comparisons between War and Football to be insulting. However I have 100% confidence in our military and the ability to succeed in battle. I have almost zero confidence in our administration to do what it takes 'politically' to create a sustainable peace..

Guns or Knives?


If you were wondering NCLB seriously is a major scam. Granted there is plenty wrong with public education. No Child Left Behind is not the cure.

Guess how many billions of "education" dollars are going to the companies that produce, print, distribute and grade all these "standardized, bullshit tests"? Guess what the qualifications of the test evaluators are?....can you say 'off-the-street-minimum-wage' jobs?

If you have not seen Taylor Mali...enjoy!

ps. you don't piss yourself anymore because someone taught you not to.

Say Anything blog

These guys get a bum rap from we "progressive, leftist, socialistic,....highly intelligent, Bush disdainers. But they toss out the posts like a frickin machine.....

I almost always disagree with every single post on the site. If you comment you get absolutely gang raped verbally....but I keep going back....what is wrong with me? Do I really care? Do I want to try to save them? or am I just trying to find the "flush handle"?

How to get rid of a Senator?

They can lie. They can cheat. They can steal. They can duck questions. They can cook the books. They can ignore their base. They can be wined, dined and bribed. They can live like kings. They can vote themselves raises. They can be completely out of touch with reality.

They can not, however, after a long flight engage in random gay sex in the restroom of an international airport. We Americans have standards damnit!!
