I find the outraged comments from the Bush administration and it's defacto propaganda arms (the US "liberal media"), regarding how "undemocratic" the Iranian election seems to be, how does that old saying go???? "A bit like the Pot calling the Kettle 'black'".
Pump your own Septic tank first. (Unplug your own toilet first, for you City Folks).
Florida? Ohio? Long lines? "Electronic" Ballots? "Rigged" selections of candidates and "electors"? I say "rigged" in the sense that no one, not already rich or powerful, can ever hope to gain a meaningfull position in either the Democratic or Republican party.
"Party"? Yep, that's the word. It describes their activities well. A party for them. The cleanup, of whatever mess they make? Well, that's up to us.
Even if a "Mr. Smith" type might get elected, you can be sure the "puppet masters" have a firm grip on tender parts of his anatomy.

It was reported today that Exxon/Mobile, champions of the environment and at the fore front of global warming research (NOT!!!), hired
(drum roll) . . . wait for it . . . (continued drum roll)
None Other Than . . .
(former) Bush Aide . . .
(former) Chief of Staff of Bush's environmental policy council . . .
A man who brooks no scientific interferrence with his opinions. . .
Philip A. Cooney!!!!!
Yep. The same one who, without a bit of science background, or a bit of evidence on his side, managed, nonetheless, to edit "scientific" reports for the White House, to cast doubt on the roots of global warming.
It certainly warms my globes, to see such loyalty to a cause rewarded by those who profit from such dissembling.
We can only guess how much of their advertising campaign, to convince us of their dedication to the environment, means more that old used oats. Only been thru the horse once, as they say.
Time to cut up your Exxon/Mobile card and send it to them, with an explanatory letter. They might begin to get the picture.
What has been obvious for some time, now becomes clear.
President Bush and cohorts deceived the country in the buildup and rationale for the Iraq invasion. President Bush and VP Dick Cheney must be impeached and removed from office.
The so called "Downing Street Memo" provides the "smoking gun". To read the memo and more about this, visit After Dowing Street
The snippet below says it all:
Constitutional scholar John Bonifaz has written a Resolution of Inquiry which states:
Whereas considerable evidence has emerged that George W. Bush, President of the United States, has engaged in a conspiracy to deceive and mislead the United States Congress and the American people as to the basis for taking the nation into war against Iraq, that George W. Bush, President of the United States, has manipulated intelligence so as to allege falsely a national security threat posed to the United States by Iraq, and that George W. Bush, President of the United States, has committed a felony by submitting a false report to the United States Congress on the reasons for launching a first-strike invasion of Iraq:
Now, therefore, be it Resolved, That the Committee on the Judiciary is directed to investigate and report to the House of Representatives whether sufficient grounds exist to impeach George W. Bush, President of the United States. Upon completion of such investigation, that Committee shall report thereto, including, if the Committee so determines, articles of impeachment.
Why is it that President Clinton was investigated and impeached for "lying" about what was essentially a private personal matter (a sexual tryst with a female, not his wife), but President Bush, whose lies dragged the Nation to War, have caused the death of over 1600 US Troops and countless thousands of Iraqi Women and Children and cost the US Citzens Billions in Tax dollars, is getting off without even a wimper?

Yeah, yeah, we've heard it all, for years. As if what the Bushites are trying foist on the American People is somehow a new idea.
As if they have not been trying for years to destroy the "New Deal" in general, and Social Security in particular.
For years, they claimed that people should not be "forced" into Social Security and should have the "freedom" to "opt out". Oh yeah, very Libertarian, for cure.
But, now we see their true colors. Never hard to discern, to begin with, if one took off their dark glasses. But clearer now than ever.
Their proposals, thus far, do not offer freedom of choice, at all, not hardly. All they offer is a variation of the forced savings and confiscatory policies that they used to violently oppose. Rhetorically, that is.
One can see thru this charade rather easily, can't one?
