Treason in the United States Senate

When asked about the “National Popular Vote Interstate Compatct (NPV), US Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell reacted by calling it a “genuine threat to our country”.    NPV, guarantees that whichever candidate wins the popular vote of the American public would guarantee a win in the Electoral College.  This puts to rest a repeat of the Gore v. Bush Debacle in 2000.  It’s a return to the United States Constitution’s guarantee of “one man – one vote”.  However, Senator McConnell completely disagrees with it beyond calling it intriguing.

MCCONNELL: Hosting this seminar on the most important issue [the National Popular Vote proposal] in America nobody’s talking about. Everybody’s following the debt crisis in Europe, the presidential election in America, unemployment statistics, but nobody is paying much attention to the genuine threat to our country. That’s what I want to address this morning.

Let’s remember that this isn’t the first time the Senator has been at odds with our Constitution.  In July 2011, he declared on the Senate flor that we must “rewrite the Consistution” by adding an amendment permanently entrenching a Tea Party police agenda because “elections” haven’t “worked”.

How odd is this current state of affairs?  I mean, if President Barack Obama happened on the idea to rewrite the Constitution and “popular votes would be a threat to our country”, do you think he’ll get some air-time on Fox News?

“Mutiny” has appeared from the foundation of the US Military

HMS Bountyvia Daily Kos.

This is extremely disturbing. This speaks volumes of what’s going on with our troops over there in Iraq. This should never happen. From the Army Times:

“They called it an act of mutiny,” Cardenas said, still enraged that the men he considered heroes were, in his mind, slandered. “The sergeant major and the battalion commander said we were unprofessional. They said they were disappointed in us and would never forget our actions for the rest of their lives.”

But no judicial action ever came of it.

“Captain Strickland read us our rights,” DeNardi said. “We had 15 yes-or-no questions, and no matter how you answered them, it looked like you disobeyed an order. No one asked what happened. And there’s no record — no article 15. Nothing to show it happened.”

After the members of 2nd Platoon had spent a year fighting for each other and watching their buddies die, battalion leaders began breaking up the platoon. Seven noncommissioned officers were told they were being relieved for cause and moved out of the unit. Three noncommissioned officers stayed at Old Mod. Two, including Sgt. Derrick Jorcke, would remain in Iraq for one month after 2nd Platoon went home in October because they had been moved to different battalions in different areas of Iraq.

“In a way, they were put someplace where they wouldn’t have to go out again,” Johnson said. “But as an NCO, they took these guys’ leaders away and put them with people they didn’t know and trust. You knew 2nd Platoon would die for you without a second’s hesitation. That’s what made them so great. These guys need each other.”

Then, they were all flagged: No promotions. No awards. No favorable actions.

“We had PFCs miss [promotion to] specialist for two months,” DeNardi said. “Bronze Stars and [Army Commendation Medals] were put on hold. You’re talking about heroes like Cardenas. These are guys who save lives and they can’t get awards.”

“I didn’t want to punish them,” Strickland said. “I understood what was going on. But they had to understand you couldn’t do something like that and have nothing happen.”

And things could not continue as they had. Strickland could not operate for three more months with a platoon that refused to go out.

“Within the company, we made some adjustments,” Strickland said. “They needed a fresh start. After looking into it, I didn’t feel the need to punish anybody.” However, he left the flags in place.

“If anything was going to be punishment, that was it,” he said. For at least one soldier, that meant going through a promotion board again. Jorcke lost his promotion table status, but Strickland signed a memo re-establishing it. “I’ve tried to fix those issues. Almost everybody else has been promoted except one guy.” Jorcke made his E-6 on Nov. 1.

Even after the “mutiny,” Strickland said, he had a great deal of admiration for his soldiers.

“I understood why they did what they did,” he said. “Some of the NCOs, I was disappointed in them because they failed to lead their soldiers through difficult times. They let their soldiers influence their decisions. But on a personal level, I applauded their decision because they stood behind their soldiers. I was disappointed, but I thought they had great courage. It was truly a Jekyll/Hyde moment for me.”

And though they were horrified at being torn away from each other, the soldiers themselves were conflicted about the outcome.

“For us being disbanded, now we definitely had unfinished business,” Jorcke said. “If we’d cleared Adhamiya, we could have said, ‘I left Iraq and my buddies didn’t die in vain.

“But in a way, the disbanding was good,” he said. “We — what was left of the platoon — got to come back home alive.”

While the Republicans and Democrats like Senator Amy Klobuchar vote to continue to fund this war and to extend their tours of duty – more of theseFruitFly 6 stories will be leaking out.

What’s it going to take to end this war?!

Why are we still living in a country where our government refuses to listen to us?!

The Sinking Island

Walking Away from New Orleans:
The Army Corps of Engineers is trying to sneak out the back door on the city of New Orleans, one of the oldest cities in North America. I’m trying to remember, what exactly our Decider in Chief said about this city. Do you remember? I don’t seem to recall… Oh yes, now I remember! It was SeptJax Square 15th, 2005:

And tonight I also offer this pledge of the American people: Throughout the area hit by the hurricane, we will do what it takes. We will stay as long as it takes to help citizens rebuild their communities and their lives.

Meanwhile, while I still haven’t heard where the DNC is holding their 2008 Presidential Primaries, I’m still hoping they decide on New Orleans. (By the way…weren’t they supposed to announce their plans this month?!) Lots of folks are pining away hoping it’ll be New York or Denver. I disagree; I think it should be New Orleans. Face it, New Yorkers had to put up with the GOP in 2004’s election, and Denver…Well, they hate their gay and lesbian people and yet they love their crack-pipe homosexual ministers. So, screw those guys. My pick; New Orleans, and then New York and then who cares where they have it?

Thieves, Sexual Predators, Hypocrits (a.k.a. Evangelical Chiristians)

Colorado hasn’t had so much attention in the past three months. It’s a proven fact: You can get picked up and laid by a homosexual faster in an Evangelical Church than you can at a gay bar in Denver. I don’t even think you need to wear Prada…just show up with your Bible. You can use it as a cushion when your Fundie-friend needs something between his head and the bathroom wall. (Unless you’re “the catcher” of course.)

PredatorNot that I’m counting notches on my axe handle; but I think we’re up to 3 gay Fundies and 1 gay Whore out there in Colorado. In comparison, The White House still has the 1 gay Whore, but they have far more gay Fundies than Denver does. It’s no wonder the Konservative Kristian Koaltion wants to make gay marriage illegal on the US Constituteion. They think it’s better to procreate with their wives and keep their whores on the side whenever convenient. The very idea of marrying your Whore is completely out of the question!

So far, the score-board looks like this:

1.) Ted Haggard of course.

2.) Then it was Reverend Paul Barns, Grace Chapel

3.) And now it’s back to the New Life Church, and Christopher Beard. (Yes folks…that’s his last name: “Beard”.)

The Hunt for Terry Rakolta

Terry Rakolta was a woman from Detroit, Mich who carried the torch to try to ban Fox’s ‘Married With Children” because of an episode that involved two heterosexual male characters that were trapped in a store overnight in a shopping mall where they encountered:

“…There was a homosexual, a man in stockings and a woman who took off her bra (see the picture of topless Playboy Miss June 1985 Devin Velasquez playing “Vicki” at the bottom).”

In the early 90’s Ms. Rakotla went into an “insane-crazy rage” and wrote letters to the advertisers and demanded that they “Stop and Dicease” any relationship with Fox Television. It turned out to be a two-edged sword: Fox Television moved the series up a half hour per her request, and the television show became even more popular! Meanwhile, Fox Television became America’s first “media whore”.
JokerNow it’s the conservative Christians who are publishing a brand-new video game available just in time for Christmas. It’s a game related to the “Rapture” were Christ comes back and rescues all of His beleivers. The game however, allows the players to shoot non-beleivers, Jews, Muslims and every social sub-group that Christians hate the most. (Hint: Think “cyber Hate-crimes”.) Leave it to those conservatives: If they don’t like something on their television, they’ll find a way to make something worse to put up there.

Time Magazine Continues to Shill Hoping to Find Readers
Time decided to make “you” the “Time Person of the Year”. Desperate to keep their conservative rag on the shelves, Time’s marketing department put a piece of refletive tin foil on the cover hoping they can find readers that are more vain and narcissistic than their own selves.Time is Me

Kos agrees with me the best in all of the hoop-la. Time’s suffering their own journalists and stories and their own fainting fight to attract “new customers” [liberals, young voters, and the entire Middle Class] threw “YOU” under the bus in order to make a nickle. The grin is with Kos’ note about the Chrysler ad.

That’s a pretty big Ooops.

Meanwhile, I believe the over all marketing campaign was designed to be “flattering”. It’s when the Republican Party continues to implode, and Time/Warner is desperate to find anybody interested in who the hell cares. My hint to Time: “Get around to being at least a little bit moderate and see how far it moves you.”
Southern Methodist University Says “NO!” to a GW Bush Presidential Library

SMU, located in Dallas and Mrs Bush’s alma mater, is protesting the Bush Family Empire’s attempts to give them a George W Bush Library. Apparently, not interested in building a library just to hold thousands of copies of “My Pet Goat”, SMU slammed back at the Family Empire by saying:

We count ourselves among those who would regret to see SMU enshrine attitudes and actions widely deemed as ethically egregious: degradation of habeas corpus, outright denial of global warming, flagrant disregard for international treaties, alienation of long-term U.S. allies, environmental predation, shameful disrespect for gay persons and their rights, a pre-emptive war based on false and misleading premises, and a host of other erosions of respect for the global human community and for this good Earth on which our flourishing depends.

The letter concludes, “[T]hese violations are antithetical to the teaching, scholarship, and ethical thinking that best represents Southern Methodist University.”

birdThe only way to say “No, Thank you” any more politely is to wear a garlic necklace and flip them the bird!

Does anybody remember the grand opening of the Clinton Library? Everybody I’ve met who’ve been to the Clinton Library swoons over it. “It’s beautiful!”, or “It was wonderful!”, or something similar. The conservatives snickered and mocked it, thinking everybody would agree with them that the library would be dopey and lame.

The George W Bush Library, I’ll predict, will be the worst presidential library and attended less than the Nixon Library out in Yorba Linda, CA.

Colin Powell Admited to Reading a Script when He Gave the Counterfeited Materials to the UN Security Council that Lead Up To The War

An independant reporter caught Colin Powel outside of the CBS studios a got the former Secretary a little bit “hot under the collar”. In the exchange, Colin Powell not only admitted that he was simply following along with what the script said, but that he was nothing but a useless meat-puppet. Now there’s a legacy to be proud of, huh?

In his defense, Colin Powell bailed on the Bush Administration as fast as he could – while being “professional” about it.

Vice President Dick “Shooter” Cheney Will Testify
Aww, don’t tell me the Bush Royal Family will have to stoop so low as to testify in behalf of “the Palace Help”! Say it isn’t so!!

Poor Dick. Here is his butler, Scooter, who’s now facing all kinds of charges and Scooter throws Shooter under the bus! It’s just difficult finding good “help” these days isn’t it?

He’s already been told to fess up the Visitation Logs, which can’t be flattering information on his behalf. Because now he’s appealing that decision! Perhaps someone should remind the Vice President (and the President as well) that both of these two serve at the Will Of The People and not their own.

Meanwhile, Shooter’s boss…

Boosh’s Polls Falling Even Farther With the War on Terror and The Bush-Iraqi War

Yes it’s true. Bush’s newest poll numbers out of CNN say that he’s dropped down to 28%. 70% disapprove of Bush’s handling of this dibacle. With my handy 8-function Casio; I believe that will make it less than One Third of the American people like this idiot!!

There’s even a short video! Honey!! Do We Have Any Microwaveable Popcorn?!! Bush’s polls are nose-diving worse than a kamikazi pilot!!

Gays Steal Rainbow Colors; Christians To Steal It Back

Christians, angry that gays and lesbians exist, demand that they stop using the rainbow colors to spread perversion and depravity. Hence, “Take Back Our Rainbow Inc.” has begun to sell refrigerator magnets, bumper stickers and angrily insist that gay’s stop using it. There’s even a petition they’ve put up hoping to get everybody to sign it and gays and lesbians will begin to be intimidated, and start throwing their rainbow keychains, doggie coats and scarves and everything else that’s gay, into the trash and crawl into a hole and go away.

To quote:

Since it’s first usage in 1978, the symbol of the rainbow has been gradually taken away from the general populace and reserved for the use of the gay community. A natural phenomena and generally beautiful symbol should not be reserved for use in just the homosexual community, but be available for use without prejudice for the whole of society.

I don’t think anybody told these Loosers that the GLBT Rainbow flag isn’t about “gays” per se. The Rainbow Flag is a symbol of diversity, which means we’ll have to put up with these idiots among us. When will these nut-jobs begin stealing Jesse Jackson’s rainbow and complain about the “horrors of diversity”?

Rainbow Push Coalition

Jackson’s group isn’t complaining about the GLBT rainbow flag, what’s the problem with these people? Less I sound pedantic, the GLBT rainbow flag’s colors represents “diverse” things like: GLBT Flag

Red: Life
Orange: Healing

Yellow: Sun

Green: Nature

Blue: Serenity

Lavender (Purple): Spirit

They whine that the rainbow is a “Holy Symbol”, just as their “fish” symbol is allegedly “holy”. They even warn the Hateful Faithful Christians that GLBT’s very well might steal their Holy Fish symbol too.

“We are a company that believes it is time to take a stand for our beliefs and we are asking all Christians to do the same,” the business’s website reads. “Let’s all stand up and take our rainbow back. Those who choose to pervert this holy symbol may have well taken the cross or the Christian Fish (symbol). They may soon do this because we are doing nothing to stop the use of our symbols for perversion.”

Christians? Worried about “holy symbols”? Are these “holy symbols” just like the hundreds of thousands of “holy symbols” that these Christians desecrated belonging to Native Americans? …Just wondering, you know.
