ditch trashMark Cherry has new plans for Desperate Housewives

Openly gay Mark Cherry, creator and producer of the wildly popular television show “Desperate Housewives” has a revolutionary new idea for his show: Add a desperate gay househusband!

Marc Cherry, (right with Teri Hatcher), creator of Desperate Housewivesmark cherry terry hatcher revealed during the ABC Press Tour that Wisteria Lane will become home to its first gay couple in season 4. “We’re going to have the first male desperate housewives,” said Cherry. “They will move into the old Applewhite house and one of the gay men will just have a fractious, hateful relationship with Teri Hatcher. We just started writing the episodes so I probably won’t start casting for another few weeks.”

Will the lucky gay couple have their Massachusetts wedding license framed on the wall as the practice of most legally wed Gay/Lez couples?

Will all of the heterosexual couples’ marriage fall apart as guaranteed by the religiously insane? Oh wait…that’s already happened in seasons 1, 2 and 3, long before the Queers showed up!

It should be a blast to see. I can only hope the gay couple will be protrayed as professional gay people. Because if one of them is a “female impersonator” so some dumb crap like that, I ain’t watching it.

Fred (Fredrick of Hollywood) Thompson’s numbers are extremely low

The Republican Party, extremely disappointed with their current gaggle of Presidential hopeful contenders, have secretly habored a personal hope in Fred Thompson. Thompson however, continues to ride the fence on whether he really wants to run for the Presidency or not. And he seems to have taken a beating with his money laundering raising.

The amount Thompson raised for his committeeSimpsons to “test the waters” of a presidential bid lags the original $5 million goal backers set for June, the first month in which he set out to raise money.

Thompson did, however, collect more than several other Republicans did in their initial fundraising months as prospective candidates. Still, Thompson’s take doesn’t even compare to the stunning $6.5 million haul that Mitt Romney collected on a single day in January as he was exploring a bid.

Let’s recall that Mitt Romney, the GOP’s Golden Boy, has funding problems of his own and has been keeping his campaign floating with his own money.

Thompson apparently doesn’t seem to have enough of his own cash to chip into his campaign otherwise none of us would be seeing these kinds of headlines. Therefore, it’s safe to assume that he wasn’t paid that much when he served as a lobbyist for an abortion rights group. Thompson’s candidacy presents other problems as well: When he announces, all of the Law and Order episodes will have to be pulled off the air, including all of those that are currently in syndication. This move also has an effect on all of those fellow cast members including camera crews, make-up artists, casting directors and walk-on actors who will loose royalties for the more recent episodes.

Minnesota GOP Fund Raising Woes

Dunce…And while we’re talking about the financial woes of the GOP, it seems local statewide GOP teams have their own financial problems.

On another note, [ed.] said he got a call from GOP fundraisers for the special election and he refused to give any money because he did not trust the financial stewardship of the state party. And also because the caller was an asshole, he said.

Minnesota’s GOP has problems internally anyway. Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (a.k.a. Bagdad Bachmann) has turned out to be even more bat-shit insane than the voters of MN Cong Dist 6 originally Bagdad Mall of Americarealized. Think Progress has a great piece on Congreswoman Bachman’s comparison to visiting Bagdad, Iraq to a trip to Mall of America in Minneapolis.

Eight-term Representative Mark Olson from Big Lake, MN has been dumped by the GOP Caucus after a jury cleared him of battery, but guilty for terrorizing his wife. While the trial was going on, it was revealed that this “GOP American Family Values” man would beat the shit out of his wife with a Holy Bible. In turn, she would defend herself by using her own HolyLesbian Patty Bible and beat him with it. Don’t believe me? Check out the audio of his confession…

The best part of this story is that Representative Mark Olson is extremely anti-gay marriage. You can check out a YouTube of him bitching in the Minnesota House yelling about his religious views about gays getting married.

Are you still interested in giving your money to these Minnesota GOP political-hacks?!?

US Senator Ted Stevens’ home raided: Underwear, lubes and Internets discovered

This needs no introduction because the story speaks for itselfAshamed Blog

The longest-serving Republican in U.S Senate history, who is known for delivering billions of federal dollars to his home state, Stevens in a statement said: “My attorneys were advised this morning that federal agents wished to search my home in Girdwood in connection with an ongoing investigation.

“I continue to believe this investigation should proceed to its conclusion without any appearance that I have attempted to influence the outcome,” it said.

Old FruitfliesHas anybody set up a webpage that keeps count of all of these GOP Senators and Congressman who’s lives are being invaded by FBI agents? Oh well – who cares about this one. Let him rot with the salmon spawn up river.

Have you heard about his son Ben Stevens? He’s an Alaskan state senator and he’s also under investigation for all kinds of mischief. It’s all of that “family values” that gets me warm and fuzzy on the inside, you know?!

Conservative bloggers sounding pathetic

LipsJohn Hindraker’s blog, The Powerline, carries a piece from the Washington Times talking about some poll that all of his conservative readers can find solace with. What?! The Washington Times?!? What’s that?!Oh yeah, the “newspaper” that’s really a propaganda outlet for the bat-shit crazy religious lunatic Sun Myong Moon, a.k.a. “The Moonies sugar-daddy”.

The Rasmusson poll the Washington Times lists also pushes notes that “conservatives” are still popular in this country and…wait a minute. What?! Did Hindraker and the Washington Times just print that Rasmussen poll?!?

Hindraker’s blog writes:

Most Republicans have been pretty confident that last year’s election wasn’t a repudiation of conservatism. This is borne out by the fact that “conservative” outpolls “liberal” by 32% to 20%. In some polls over the years, of course, the disparity has been even wider. But “progressive” scored 35%, which can only mean that many Americans haven’t figured out yet that “progressive” means “even more liberal than they used to be.” No doubt some still associate it with Teddy Roosevelt.

“Moderate” polled only 29%, which suggests that most Americans want a Presidential candidate to stand for something, as long as it isn’t liberalism.

Did you see those numbers too?!? With Gonazelez lying in front of Congress, Bush lying to the American people and CheneyPostal Anthrax lying to everybody…I simply can’t believe anything a conservative writes any more. So I had to scamper over to the Washington Times and read those numbers for myself.

Protected with a Hazmat suit, a canary in a birdcage and a St Bernard, I clicked on the Washington Times link and read:

The survey revealed that 44 percent of the respondents rated the phrase “like Reagan” positively, followed by “progressive,” favored by 35 percent, “conservative” (32 percent), “moderate” (29 percent) and at the bottom, “liberal” (20 percent).

The rest of the article prattles away like a 3rd grader’s book report that cheated and the Rasmusson report isn’t credited with a link. But let’s see if we understand what this Rasmussen poll is saying..Casio

  • Progressive – polls have 35%
  • Conservative – polls have a 32%
  • Moderate – polls have a 29%
  • …and a liberal have a poll at 20%

So if I added those poll numbers; Progressive + Moderate + Liberal, I get 84%. Actually, the “Conservative” number sounds pretty high at 32% and with Bush’s approval numbers down at 26% who is the current patron saint of “Conservatives”… Yeah – that 32% is a pretty high number.

Don’t believe anything a conservative tells you and if they’re quoting a Rasmussen poll and they fail to do their homework and credit their research – do it yourself. The poll the Washington Times and Hindraker talks about is even worse for the Republican party than they want you to notice. Since neither bothered to credit the actual poll, I had to find it myself.

Clinton WinceTheir pathetic “Reagan-esque” poll from Rasmussen comes from one taken from the Democratic CNN/YouTube debates where Senator Hillary Clinton clarifies that the word “liberal” has been dragged through the mud to mean something bad and that she defines herself as a “progressive”. The Rasmussen folks decided to do a poll on the subject and the word “conservative” does not do well in the poll at all whatsoever.

Said the Rasmussen poll:

For some, it may seem strange to distinguish between a candidate who is like Reagan and a candidate who is politically conservative. But, that gap has arisen because the definition of conservative has been altered by the more recent GOP leadership in Congress and the White House. Also, of course, being compared to Reagan ascribes some personal characteristics that cannot be captured in an ideological label.mowhawk

There are, of course, huge partisan differences for each of these terms. Among Democrats, 32% consider the description liberal as positive. That number jumps to 42% for the description of a candidate as progressive. Among Republicans, just 7% say the term liberal is a positive description, but that number jumps to 26% for the term progressive.

Hindraker would do well and read the Pundit’s column over at The Hill. Brent Budowsky has a piece that’s titled: Neoconservativism is Dead.

Hindraker, the Washington Times, the White House and even theMe Republican presidential candidates can’t find any redeeming qualities with their Neocon agenda that’s going to sell to the American public anymore. They’re a lost species that the planet will happily ignore no matter how pathetic they sound.

John Edwards chides Clinton and Obama for their feud

Presidential hopeful and former US Senator John Edwards (D-NC) is apparently being jealous about the media attention going on between competitors Senators Barak Obama (D-IL) and Hillary Clinton (D-NY).

The Democratic Underground is reporting that Senator Edwards is…

…saying the spat was distracting Democrats from tackling real problems.

jealousSenator Edwards sounds a little jealous here. Wasn’t it all about him and Hillary Clinton just a few days ago who got caught ca-noodling between each other on how they haven’t kicked off other “lesser” valid candidates in this race? Clinton meanwhile, seems to be doing very well in keeping herself in the middle of everything “Democrat” these days regardless if it’s Barak or John.

What problems is he referring too, anyway?

Could it be that “problem” he has on the issue of gay marriage?

Maybe it’s that “problem” he hasn’t notice in the fact that gay couples pay more in taxes than their heterosexual neighbors.

Although it could be that “problem” he hasn’t paid any attention to when gay couples are separated in hospital rooms and the partner is denied access to his/her lover when going through dangerous surgeries.

It might be that “problem” that happens when one person in a same sex relationship dies and their family kicks the other partner out immediately and destroys all of their possessions.

I’m not too sure, but perhaps these Democratic “problems”Me Senator Edwards is talking about when the courts remove children from their parents because he or she is gay.

I don’t really know what he’s talking about. Do you?!

Myspace.com kicks out the GOP

mexican fruit fliesIn a rather disturbing turn of events, it’s being investigated that MySpace, a popular social network for young people on the Internet, has removed some 29,000 personal profiles belonging to sexual predators, mostly belonging to the Republican party.

You may recall that in January 2006, the Bush Administration demanded that a federal judge order Google and CNET News service to turn over their search engine records in an effort to stop sexual predators and Internet-child porn rings. And now it would appear that the large Internet social groups have begun cleaning up their own computer networks by removing known sexual predators starting with the Republican Party.

In the past two weeks alone, the Republican Party has been hit hard by breaking the very Family Values Laws they espouse to hold dearest to their hearts and minds of their families. Most noteably was “Diaper-David” Vitter, Republican Senator of Louisiana who was recently fingered as one who had the Washington DC Madam on the speed-dial of his phone.

Other noteables worth mentioning in the past few weeks?

  1. Bob Allen was proposing a draconian Sexual Predator Elimination Act– which would send sexual predators to prison for life– he was prowling public toilets and asking men if he could pay them to perform fellatio on them.
  2. North Carolina Rep. David Almond sexually assaulted a legislative aide in the state Capitol and was forced to resign by his fellow Republicans when the cover-up didn’t work.
  3. NYC’s only elected Republicans, Queens City Councilman Dennis Gallagher, was accused by a woman he picked up in a bar of raping her.

BlogActive LeagueThe Republican’s newest edition of sexual predators?

This morning’s Cleveland Plain Dealer reported that the former head of the Michigan Federation of Young Republicans raped a college student at the national Young Republicans convention in Cleveland’s Warehouse District. …Michael Flory wanted to be a Republican player. So he played like the big shot respected, admired Republicans.

This man is now an attorney who has spent a great deal of time defending his good name in the courts, but an even greater amount of time smearing the good name of the victim that he raped! During the trial-hearing:

“People were using every opportunity to try to trash her, on Web sites or whatever,” the prosecutor said. “He’s been running around telling everybody what a piece of trash she is, so she was very happy to see him plead guilty.”

Now MySpace.com has begun to clean it up for their audiences. After dealing with a great deal of pressure from the public, the MySpace administration staff has finally said “No more!” to Republican sexual perverts.

Thousands and thousands of Republican sex offenders and other perps have been kicked off MySpace according to the Christian Post. MySpace refuses to confirm or deny that Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Larry Craig (R-ID), Bob Allen (R-FL), Mark Foley (R-FL), David Almond (R-NC), Ed Schrock (R-VA), James McCrery (R-LA), Alex Arshinkoff (R-OH), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), John Barrasso (R-WY), Patrick McHenry (R-NC), David “Diapers” Vitter (R-LA), Dennis Gallagher (R-NY), Michael Flory (R-MI), Ted Klaudt (R-SD), or dozens of other known GOP sexual predators were among the people whose pages were taken down.

Of course, there’s been nothing said about any sexualMe impropriety of any Democrat, Liberal or Progressive thus far. MySpace.com, young people and their parents continue to enjoy an outstanding relationship. Parents are thrilled by the fact that they no longer fear another Republican sexual predator on MySpace.

alleywalkDoing the Lord’s work

Another man found doing the “Lord’s work” by hiring a prostitute and offering to pay for her services by writing a check. At seventy-four and obviously armed with a fresh bottle of Viagra, the President of the Christian Action League is arrested for solisiting the services of a prostitute.

Privette, 74, was charged with six counts of misdemeanor aiding and abetting prostitution by renting a hotel room and paying for sexual acts, according to State Bureau of Investigation Agent Kevin Canty. Tiffany Denise Summers, 32, of Salisbury, was charged with six counts of misdemeanor prostitution, Canty said.

Yes, it’s true! Another Republican discovered for his “strong American values” and his core belief that God defined marriage between one man and one prostitute wife.

For over three decades, Privette has been one of the best known and most outrageous spokesmen for “family values” and Christian extreme right politics in North Carolina. In the 1970s, he was serving as minister at the North Kannapolis Baptist Church when he joined the tide of evangelicals entering politics that included the Moral Majority and Christian Coalition. He served in the N.C. Legislature from 1984 to 1992, and has been a member of the board of commissioners in Cabarrus County since 1998.

My favorite comment in this piece is about half way down in the piece:

 

I noticed that his organization didn’t have this story up on their web site, so I sent them the link and a reminder that they neglected to include this important news about the wonderful work they’re doing for the lord.

DailyKos beat up by Bill O’Reilly’s Army of the Idiotic

Bill O’Reilly, who enlightened all of his viewers on the horrors full of hate-speech that goes on at the DailyKos has finally won the battle. The writers at the DailyKos have throw in the white flag and have been begging and pleading for BillO’s mercy and everlasting benevolence.

Please, Bill O’Reilly, spare us from your savage and inexplicable rage. We can’t take any more of it. Being defended by Keith Olbermann… being roundly and sternly publicized by Stephen Colbert… it’s all too much. The extra traffic, the publicity, the footage of your narcissistic tantrums… the subsequent exposure of hate speech and death threats on your pay-to-post blog. How can any liberal website withstand such a well-planned assault?

It would appear that BillO can hang three gold stars around the name plate on his dressing room. It’s glaringly obviousBarbara Cubin those liberals at the DailyKos have been truly defeated.

Their plea for mercy finishes tragically by sayin:

So please, Bill, refrain from mentioning us on your programs. Please do not berate us on theradio, or on your television show, or in the loofah aisle of whatever store one purchases such things. What would be really, really too much to bear is if you tattooed the name of our website on your broad, pale forehead as reminder to everyone about how evil we are. Please, please don’t do that. Surely, somewhere in your heart, you still have within you the jagged remnants of mercy.

Stephen Colbert applauds BillO’s war on the DailyKos and compliments the Loofa King for a job well done.

Senator Vitter Inists on an improved image for the GOP

Shhhh
Hooker-lover, Senator David Vitter (R-LA) attended a power-lunch for prominent GOP’ers in Washington today. Just seven days after pleading forgiveness for admitting his love for the “Ladies of the Evening”, he got up again and addressed his colleagues.

He spoke bravely on the subject of the need to improve theMe GOP “image” and how they need to rebrand themselves as the “fiscally responsible party”. Rumors have it that there was a great deal of vomiting during the speech while others were mysteriously coughing into their fists and uttering a noise that resembled something like “b*sh*t”.

GOP Fundraiser: Machine-Gun Shoot

The Democrats have finally gone too far in their constant criticizm of their friends across the aisle. And, I think it really should stop.

Rambo KittyIn Manchester, New Hampshire, the city GOP committee chair Jerry Thibideau has hatched an ingenious idea to raise funds by holding a “Machine Gun Shoot”. He’ll encourage his fellow GOP members to bring their Uzis and their AK-47’s for a little bit fun shooting at each other targets.

The Democrats, typical stick-in-the-mud old goats they tend to be, have decided that this is a bad idea.

The concept prompted shudders across the political aisle. Chris Pappas, the city Democratic party chairman, called the event “not just in poor taste; it is downright offensive.”

Of course, I think the opposite. I think that there couldn’t beRepublican Elephant anything more fantastic than a bunch of GOP assholes getting together fully loaded with automatic weapons and get together. …. Give them some beer… Give them more beer. Give them as much beer as they want!

And then…. LOCK-N-LOAD!!!!

Thibideau is serious too, which is even better news! He’s running around inviting every GOP asshole he can find! Check it out:

Each of the Republican Presidential candidates was invited, Thibodeau said, but all declined, saying they’ll be busyGiuliani In Drag preparing for the following weekend’s much-ballyhooed straw poll in Ames, Iowa.

“I really tried to get Rudy Giuliani there,” Thibodeau said. “Because I’ll tell you, this is a guy that can’t relax.”

Yeah really… Get Rudy Guiliani in there too.

C’mon Rudy! Grab a few cold beers and get in there for some fast action with an AR-15….

C’mon you wossie!!

Dead-Eye DickAnd Thibideau shouldn’t limit himself with just Rudy Guiliani either. That guy should be inviting other GOP assholes like Glen Beck, and Ann Coulter… Shoot! You could even invite Dick Cheney too!!

These Democrats….it’s a real shame but they just don’t know when to sit back, shut up and watch the fun!!!

Parallelisms In American History (Class of 2045)

classroomGood morning class! Seated… Seated… Please be seated…

Okay! Let us continue in our texts and let’s finish last week’s lecture on Parallels in American Politics from the Bush Presidency circa 2001 through 2008, shall we?

As we discussed the last time we met, we explored the parallels between the Bush Administration and an earlier dictatorship under Adolf Hitler.

Yes! Mr. Stoltz! Can you tell me about one Congressman’s views on the presidency as he saw it in the day…?

No? Can anybody tell me about Congresman Ellison and his importance in the roll of the American political spectrum of the time?

Anybody? Anybody!?!!

I can see we have a long way to go before we get ready for that upcoming quiz I was planning…

Let’s do a quick review from last week and study the words of a certain Congressman Kieth Ellison and his assertion that there is a sharp distinction between the Bush Administration and Adolf Hitler’s point of view…

In July 2007, Mr. Ellison appeared in front of a group ofKieth Ellison atheists and spoke clearly about the parallels to America’s tragic 9-11 horror and Germany’s Reichstag fire. Now before we look at what the Congressman actually said – let’s break down a few of the important facts that lead up to his speaking engagement in the first place.

Mr. Ellison was a professed Muslim. He was Minnesota’s first African-American elected to US Congress, he was also the first Muslim elected to Federal Office. And in a time where the United States president had waged an unprecedented war against the entire Muslim faith worldwide, we have this man Ellison appear in front of Atheists for Human Rights and make this analogy:

It’s almost like the Reichstag fire, kind of reminds me of that. After the Reichstag was burned, they blamed the Communists for it and it put the leader of that country [Hitler] in a position where he could basically have authority to do whatever he wanted. The fact is that I’m not saying [Sept. 11] was a [U.S.] plan, or anything like that because, you know, that’s how they put you in the nut-ball box — dismiss you.

Now – Mr. Ellison was highly criticized for his statement. In fact, his statement was lambasted by the politically and religiously conservatives of the time. But wasn’t that to be expected!? At the time, Ellison’s race as well as his religion was always in question by the conservative Christians in America.

Katherine KerstenFrom his own hometown newspaper, conservative columnist Katherine Kersten questioned the Congressman’s own religious knowledge on the topic of the Muslim faith in regards to an Athiest’s lack of religious faith. Who can tell me how the conservative columnist bungled her credibility as a journalist? Anybody? Yes! Ms Luchard!

The Congressman said in his speech that the atheists could always count on him, as a Muslim and as a Congressman to be in their corner… to protect them as Americas who happen to be atheists!. Katherine Kersten’s column snipped at the Congressman’s promise to them. She assumed that as a Muslim…his faith would object to having anything to do with atheists.

She mistakenly made the assumption the Muslim faith is nothing more than a religious- jihad against all other faiths, including non-believers such as athiests, diests and agnostics! Her assumption is another regurgitating lie that the Christian faith interjects at every opportunity until everybody believes it to be true.

Very good Ms. Luchard! And to prove your point?

Sir?

Prove your point; Ms. Luchard. The Qur’an…Where does the Muslim faith receive their understanding about athiests and diests and…

Oh, Sorry. Umm; It’s everywhere in the Qur’an! It’s a basic tenant of the Muslim faith; be kind to strangers, give them shelter – care for the poor… Umm, Well, for example: The Qur’an states explicity that when you encounter someone with a different belief in God, it says: “If one among the non-believers ask thee for asylum, grant it to him so that he may hear the word of God; and then escort him to where he can be secure.”

Very good Ms. Luchard, and you’re absolutely correct. Now can you prove your point from the Christian perspective?

Sir?

You made the claim Ms. Luchard that the Christian faith is guilty of propagandizing the lie that people of the Muslim faith are murderous monsters until the lie becomes a common stereotype. …Please offer an example of what you mean by that!

Ummmm…

Can anybody help Ms. Luchard out with the proof she needs? Yes! Ms. Sykes!

The inactivity from the Catholic Church during the WW II Holocaust and that parallels with the Catholic Church in 2006. While in the middle of the American Iraqi War, Pope Benedict publicly stated that followers of Muhammad were evil and inhumane.

Excellent! Exactly! Pope Benedict, as you’ll see in the next chapter of your text on page 385 called followers of Muhammed… Well, go on ahead and read it for all of us Ms. Sykes…

“Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached”.

Medieval Pope GregoryThank you! And so two days later, the Pope did what? …Anybody? He went out and apologized for the comment and admitted that he was reading text from the Medieval Ages and has no place in contemporary times.

It was a “double-bang for his buck” if you will: Run out and say something reckless, and then apologize for it two days later just to get your message across. It was twice the advertising while seemingly to be apologetic.

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune reporter merely toed-the-line when an opportunity came up to smear a Muslim. Her column not only propagated a patented lie about the religion, she also took the opportunity to smear a fellow American…a Congressman no less… because of his or her religious views. Nothing could be farther from being a “true American patriot”. And as a self-professed “Christian”, Ms. Kersten fails herself in her own religion, fails herself as a journalist and she fails herself as an American.

But the Christian faith routinely demonizes the Muslim faith as a paradoxical view of its ownself. The Christian faith declares Muslims to be raging and monstrous murderers, and so the Christian faith compels its followers to go after Muslims and become raging amd monstrous murderers as a result.

..AND BEFORE I CALL ON YOU MR. STOLTZ!!!! I would also agree with you that not every religious man or woman is so pure in heart that they would take their religion to an extreme. Any Muslim terrorist out there can point to any Christian “terrorist” and say the exact same thing.

Tim McVeyFor example; Timothy McVey was a terrorist! He was a very devout Christian who blew up the federal building in Oklahoma City. Is there anything different from McVey than say Khalik Sheik Mohammad?

Paul Jennings Hill, another Christian terrorist, killed John Britton and James Barrett because they were thought to be “abortion doctors”. In fact, Paul Jennings Hill said in his last words, before being put to death by lethal injection, encouraged everybody to stop abortion by saying: “do what you have to do to stop it.” Does that sound like something a terrorist would say right before they become a religious martyr in their own act of terror?
But what I want to discuss here is exactly how far off was Congressman Ellison’s statements in drawing a parallelism between Bush and the 9-11 Disaster and Adolf Hitler and the Reichstag fires?

Yes! Mr. Stoltz!

Professor; are we to criticize the Bush Administration for going after Muslims? Or are we to look at the Bush Administration’s actions to “find the Devil in the details” in order to call him another Hitler? It seems to me that the Congressman was sort of “shooting from the hip” while trying to wrestle up some votes from a handful of athiests. Isn’t all of this just a lot of theater and pandering to those who would still believe that Bush had the right idea all along?

The subject is about looking at parallel’s in American history. It is often said that if we don’t learn from our history, we are prone to repeat it. Did President Bush simply repeat history by conducting the same actions as did Adolf Hitler during the Reichstag fire?

Yes, Ms. Sandstrum!

I think I would agree. Hitler erased individuality out of the German citizens by taking away their fundamental rights. Likewise, President Bush and his colleagues from the Republican Party eliminated Habeus Corpus from the US Constitution. Like Hitler, it gave the President full authority to put anbody in prison without any fundamental right to see an attorney or even a judge for that matter.

Nazi tortureI mean, didn’t I see in the chapter where the Democratically controlled Congress had held one of the President’s personal advisors in Contempt of Congress and President Bush simply made a “decree” that the US Department of Justice was no longer allowed to arrest any of his personal advisors?

The entire issue of torture alone is grounds enough to drawAmerican Toture a parallel between George W Bush and Adolf Hitler without even trying! The US Supreme Court said he wasn’t allowed to torture, and yet he continued to do so until the Republican held Congress finally sat down for a “compromise” that he could be satisfied with…and in the compromise… they decided to let him continue torturing people!

Good Ms. Sandstrum! Very good! Were there other areas of torture within the Bush Administration being demonstrated? Yes, Mr. Wicks!

He ahh… He ignored his own American people who were living in New Orleans and he let them drown. He ahh… His Cabinet level staff didn’t bother even to show up until a birkenauweek later after the hurricane and yet after two years -people were still left and forgotten.

Very good! And let’s not forget that two years after the hurricane, residents in New Orleans were still living in trailer-homes that were poisoning the inhabitents with formaldehyde while the Bush Administration did nothing. FEMA Trailer The parallelism between gassing the Jews and letting Americans be gassed by formaldehyde in their own homes is incanny.

As we can all see – those who were Bush sympathizers were very upset by Congressman Keith Ellison’s statements about President Bush because it was closer to the fact than it was to the fiction. Which, if you looked through the entire Bush Administration from 2000 to 2008, most of issues – if presented as fact, were discussed as fiction and those that were fiction – were almost always presented as fact!

Other areas that we didn’t touch on here today was in the case of privacy and personal rights. It was the Bush Administration who insisted he had the right to go through everybody’s personal mail. He bullied large internet search engine corporations with threats of subpeana’s in order to look through their search-records. He set up listening posts to evesdrop on the American people’s phone calls and charged his privately controlled corporations to build secret prisons where people were tortured many times to include death.

In the end, by the time Bush was succeeded in 2009, the political fallout from his presidency lasted for almost twenty years. Meanwhile, the Republican Party, embroiled in sex scandals, charged for taking bribes, voter fraud and child molestation charges, marginalized themselves to become a third tier political party. The downside to all of President Bush’s atrocities was the fact that it took the United States all of these years to patch up their image world wide and to restore those basic constitutional rights to its citizens.

. ..And that’s our time! BEFORE YOU GO…!! You need toMe remember that next week’s quiz will cover the material we discussed today as well as the material from last week!!

After the quiz, we’ll pick up the Parallels in American History by discussing Bush’s closest advisor Karl Rove and the suspicious activities surrounding his mother’s suicide and Heinrich Himmler’s suicide after being captured by the British.

Have a good week everybody!!

The Hypocracy of Blue People

Bush and DickHello and welcome to Fruit Fly News. My name is Frizzie McBee and tonight, we’ll be discussing Ralph Nader’s vile hatred towards Americans.

You may recall, environmentalist and Democrat-Hater Ralph Nader is the political party crasher of the century. Democrats have long despised Mr. Nader’s excuses to ruin their political hopefuls and routinely blame him for their losses. Mr. Nader meanwhile, criticizes the Democrats for what he criticizes a relationship far too cozy with Republican positions.

“You know the two parties are still converging — they don’t even debate the military budget anymore,” Nader said in a 30-minute interview. “I really think there needs to be more competition from outside the two parties.”

Democrats, furious with Nader’s nosey noise-box, blame the loss of the 2000 elections on Nader for splitting the party vote. In August 2006, DailyKos, a popular political website for liberals and progressives, launched the accusation that Ralph Nader was actually being paid by the Republican Party in Pennsylvania in a very heated race between US incumbent Senator Rick Santorum and Democratic hopeful Jim Webb. Ralph Nader’s Green Party candidate for the race, Carl Romanelli, was accused of taking money from Rick Santorum’s GOP party, and producing fake signatures to make sure his name was on the voter’s ballot in the very important election three months later.

In addition, new evidence shows that the GOP and Santorum have entirely funded Romanelli’s operation. With the exception of a $30 check written by Romanelli, himself, prominent Republican donors funneled $66,000 dollars through the Luzerne County Green Party, according to available FEC reports.

Avid fans of the DailyKos went insane with rage against Nader. Complaining that Nader’s party rarely, if ever, wins any elections anyway; but that his efforts are a direct attack upon the election process itself.

Field ReporterIn other news, anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan has her sights sent on running for Congress in 2008! For more on this exciting news, Brock Trentmore has the story. Brock?!

Yes Frizzie and thank you! Liberals and Progressives are very excited to see their favorite activist Cindy Sheehan re-emerge from a twenty-six day vacation full of energy and running a very powerful message against US Speaker of the House Nancy Pilosi.

Ms. Sheehan will be starting a pilgrimage in Atlanta, GA andCindy Sheehan walking all of the way to Washington DC where she hopes to meet with a few of Congress’ most influentional elected people and where she’ll make her promise known to the US Speaker of the House. Ms. Sheehan said in a letter published by the DailyKos:

I was going to announce on July 10th (my 50th birthday) before our Journey for Humanity that I would run against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca) if she didn’t put impeachment back on the table before our tour reached DC on July 23rd.

Yes it’s true Frizzie! Popular Air America talk-jock Randi Rhodes put Ms. Sheehan on the radio where she gushed and oozed all over Ms. Sheehan’s anti-war resurrection. Ms. Rhodes played a song in honor of Ms. Sheehan and then the two giggled and snickered about Ms. Sheehan’s threat to run against Pilosi. Said Sheehan live on The Randi Rhodes Show:

…Well, it isn’t a problem for me to buy property in Nancy Pilosi’s district. I’ve sold Camp Casey, and so I have the name recognition and I have over 800,000 signatures of people who are against this war…”

Randi Rhodes, never shy about her hatred for Ralph Nader’s “anti-Democratic” political antics snickered and giggled with Ms. Sheehan. When Sheehan re-iterated her threat to run against the Speaker of the House if Ms Pilosi did not meet her demands, Rhodes gushed:

…Well, I wish I could be there with you. I truly do. I love you. I wish you the best.”

The DailyKos carried Ms. Sheehan’s entire political threat in which she encourages others to follow in her footsteps by running against Democrats and Republicans who have the means.

I hope this challenges other people who desire healthy political change and not temporary band-aids to replace other Democrats and Republicans who do not conform to the beatitudes of peace, sustainability and the rule of law for everybody, not just poor, or marginalized persons.

Back to you, Frizzie!

Laura Bush SmokesThank you Brock. That’s very informative. Ms. Sheehan believes that she can accomplish much more as a freshman Congresswoman than career politician and current US Speaker of the House Nancy Pilosi has accomplished this far. Ms. Sheehan, tired and exhausted just a month ago, said she wanted to go home, be with her family and put her life together. Instead, Ms. Sheehan has decided that ripping up another Democrat is a far more intelligent move than running against a Republican or, even better; stumping for Democratic votes!

As you can plainly see, those who write for and read the DailyKos can be just as much of a bunch of political hypocrits as the Ralph Naders and the Joe Liebermann’s that they vehemently despise.Me

My name is Frizzie McBee and this has been another issue of Fruit Fly news. Good night, and Goddess Bless.

Have passport, will travel…Nowhere.

It was only seven years ago, when the Rabid Right wasMe going insane with criticizm about Bill Clinton’s presidency. I know; “Amercans have a huge amnesia problem.” Everybody knows it.

From the minute Clinton was sworn into office the first time, the Republican Propaganda machine was fired up with snarky sarcastism about an Arkansas hillbilly in front of the world stage. Whether it was Rush Limbaugh’s never ending line-up of jokes about it, or it was clearinghouses of “journalists” who was declaring Clinton’s foreign policies being complete and total disasters. For example; Newsmax still carries this little gem on their website:

Today, after eight years of bumbling and near-treasonous activities by the Clinton-Gore administration, America’s foreign policy is in shambles, neither friends nor enemies respect us, and our armed forces are in a state of disarray.

<tsk><tsk> Yeah… Clinton broke everything.

Actually, the article is pretty horrible towards Clinton. The article goes bullet by bullet on each one of Clinton’s heinous “sins” against the American people. My favorite was this bullet:

In his new book, “Selling Out America,” Kenneth Timmerman follows covert Chinese campaign contributions to the Clinton-Gore re-election campaign and states flatly: “For the first time in American history we had a president of the United States who took money from the head of a foreign intelligence service. In any other era, such behavior would have been called treason. During the Clinton presidency, it was dismissed as just a “mistake”.

<tsk><tsk> It’s so horrible.. Why did Clinton have to be so….. so… “incredibly evil”! So “vile”?!!?!?

Now I’m not one to be a contrarian, but in yesterday’s issue (7/6/2007) of The International Herald Tribune we find this: World shrinks for U.S. diplomats as security fears keep them inside embassies

Threatened abroad, U.S. diplomats have been hit with unprecedented security restrictions, confining many to fortress-like compounds and frustrating Bush administration efforts to get out and counter anti-U.S. sentiment.

Lockdowns and prohibitions on travel now apply to Americans posted to embassies and consulates in at least 28 nations, according to an Associated Press survey of State Department warnings, internal directives and officials. More than half the nations are identified as key to curbing the spread of militant Islam.

The security detailes for all of our US diplomats carry a double-edged sword. While the Bush administration, specifically Sec of State Condi Rice, needs her embassy personnel to get out and show our “good will” and our “love of democracy”, these restrictions prevent that from happening and it makes it appear that the United States is “unatainable”…

The GAO (Government Accounting Office) published a study in the Spring of ’07 that pointed this issue out clearly:

“Security concerns have forced embassies to close publicly accessible facilities and curtail certain public outreach efforts, sending the unintended message that the United States is unapproachable,” it said in the little-publicized April 26 report.

These restrictions aren’t laid out for embassy personnel only. The United States now has travel restrictions to a almost all Muslim countries worldwide and US diplomats have restrictions on a far grander scale.

The United States have a “No Families” rules for most Middle Eastern countries…

But the no-family rules go far beyond Kabul and Baghdad, covering all seven U.S. missions in Pakistan and Saudi Arabia as well as 12 posts in Bosnia, the Central African Republic, Congo, Kosovo, Liberia and Sudan.

Have you started counting the number of countries yet? Moving right along…

In addition to the al-Qaida hotbeds of Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia, official U.S. travel is banned or curtailed due to Islamic terrorism concerns in Algeria, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Israel, Lebanon, Mali, the Palestinian territories, the Philippines, Tajikistan, Turkey, Uzbekistan and Yemen, according to the AP survey.

Outside of areas where radical Islam is considered the main threat, travel restrictions for U.S. diplomats are in place in Burundi, Colombia, Ethiopia, Ivory Coast, Haiti, India, Laos, Nepal, Peru, Serbia, Sri Lanka, Uganda and Venezuela. Many of those countries are beset by internal strife.

And additionally:

The AP survey did not include countries where the U.S. does not maintain a diplomatic presence, notably Iran, North Korea and Somalia. Nor does it include nations that have slapped travel restrictions on U.S. diplomats in retaliation for similar measures imposed by Washington, such as Cuba, Eritrea and Zimbabwe.

The American Foreign Service Association, a union for US Diplomats note that the threat for US personnel abroad has never been as high as it is today. The AFSA was formed in 1924, four years after World War I.

Ahh yes….

We’re all smiles with those Arkansas Redneck Hillbilly jokes about Bill Clinton’s foreign policy. On foreign soil, Clinton pulls in upwards to $750,000 for speeches he’s made. His “foreign policies were so disasterous“, that in the past six years, he’s netted more than $40 million.

Flip off BushGeorge W. Bush, who is obviously far better of a US President than Clinton could ever dream of being, can only sit in “shock and awe” at the bazillions of dollars the world will throw at him once he’s left office. Why, I’ll even go so far as to believe that George W Bush will be on tour for years and years to come!! His schedule will be packed! He’ll be swamped with speaking engagements!! His “Texas Sized” bullshit will be in demand everywhere!! Honest!!! Believe me!!Old Fruitflies

Okay…You’ve got me. Maybe I am a bit of a contrarian. Just a wee-bit though. Here…have some of my fresh fruit.
