Couple Things

"...Day after day another Momma's crying
She's lost her precious child
To a war that has no end..."

From John Fogerty's, "Deja Vu (All Over Again)."

Pat Buchanan, conservative extraordinaire, is calling for some Republican (with balls) in Congress to "...drop in the hopper a bill of impeachment, charging George W. Bush with a conscious refusal to uphold his oath and defend the states of the Union against 'invasion.'"

This is Pat Buchanan! Has the world been turned upside down?

Buchanan says, "The question of whether America is going to remain one nation, or whether our Southwest will wind up as a giant Kosovo separated by language and loyalty from the rest of America is on the table.

"Where is Bush? All wrapped up in the issue of whether women in Najaf will have the same rights in divorce and custody cases as women in Nebraska. His legislative agenda for the fall includes a blanket amnesty for illegals, so they can be exploited by businesses who want to hold wages down as they dump the social costs for their employees health care, schools, courts, cops, prisons onto taxpayers.

"Not only have Richardson and Napolitano awakened they are on the front lines so, too, has Hillary Clinton, who has spoken out against illegal immigration with a forthrightness that makes Bush sound like a talking head for La Raza."

Okay. Buchanan is writing about the absolute dereliction of duty by Dubya with regard to protecting America's borders. It's a good read. It's a good indication of a coming home to roost by those very people who touted Dubya through two stolen elections.

Go figure!


Senator John Warner, Republican Chairman of the Armed Forces Committee has announced that he will call Defense Secretary Rumsfeld to respond to his, Warner's, observation that we (America) "...has given so much to the Iraqi people and what are they giving us in return?"

Dubya's poll numbers continued to plummet as he continued to chop wood in Crawford and ignore Cindy Sheehan.

Whoopee! Dubya cut his five week vacation short by two days because--supposedly--of the horrible destruction in Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi from Katrina. 'Course he didn't head down to New Orleans or Biloxi, he headed for D.C. where he is "coordinating" the relief effort. Yeah. Right.

And, AND, when Dubya knew there was a Category 5 hurrican heading for the gulf coast, did he immediately head for, oh, say Houston, from where he could--if even symbolically--appear to be concerned about the imminent disaster? Nope. Not this guy. He stopped off to play a round of golf in San Diego.

So much for homeland security.

Should we just pity Rush Limbaugh?

Two men, who had just returned from tours of duty in Iraq, were out partying in Seattle when their girlfriends were groped by some other guys. One of the women threw a hot dog at one of the offending idiots and, boys being boys, the battle began and the two returning soldiers were beat pretty much senseless (broken jaws, etc.) by the group of idiots. Rush Limbaugh--great communicator and intellect that he is--blamed the attack on the "anti-war left."

There is video of both Limbaugh's absurd contention and the attack on the two men. Judge for yourself. After watching the video of the attack, I'm really convinced it was an "anti-war liberal" event. Once again: Yeah. Right.


"See, in my line of work you got to keep repeating things over and over and over again for the truth to sink in, to kind of catapult the propaganda." -- George Bush, "President Participates in Social Security Conversation in New York," May 24, 2005.

Good read from AlterNet on Dubya's jingoistic rhetoric.

"Did you hear 'em talkin' 'bout it on the radio
Could your eyes believe the writing on the wall
Did that voice inside you say I've heard it all before
It's like Deja Vu all over again"

From John Fogerty's, "Deja Vu (All Over Again)."
