How The Rest Of The World Views America

So I've been reading some posts from around the world and decided to post some here , just to remind or enlighten us Americans how the world is viewing us and our country currently. They are sometimes humerous, and the majority of the time dead-on correct. Here are just a few.....

" You Americans are the scum of the earth, as you spread the devil's work around the world. The world will be a happier and a safer place when China unleashes it's military might on your shitty nation, nuking all 280 million of you to oblivion. What a day of celebration that will be!---(Madrid, Spain)

" I think America has gone mad. America has entered one of it's periods of historical madness, but this is the worst I can remember: worse than McCarthyism, worse than The Bay of Pigs & in the long term potenially more disastrous than the Vietnam War. The reaction to 9/11 is beyond anything Osama bin Laden could have hoped for in his nastiest dreams. As in McCarthy times, the freedoms that have made America the envy of the world are being systematically eroded. The combination of compliant U.S. media & vested corporate interests is once more ensuring that a debate should be ringing out in every town square is confided to the loftier columns of the East Coast press. The imminent war was planned years before bin Laden struck, but it was he who made it possible. Without bin Laden, the Bush junta would still be trying to explain such tricky matters as to how it came to be elected in the first place; Enron; it's shameless favouring of the already-too-rich; it's reckless disregard for the world's poor, the ecology & a raft of unilaterally abrogated international treaties. They might also have to be telling us why they support Israel in it's continuing disregard for UN resoultions. But bin Laden conveniently swept under the carpet. The Bushies are riding high. A splendid new generation of nuclear weapons is in the pipeline, so we can breathe easy. What war do the Americansthink they are supporting is alot less clear. A war for how long, please? At what cost in American lives? At what cost to the American taxpayer's pocket? At what cost in Iraqi lives? How Bush & his junta succeeded in deflecting America's anger from bin Laden to Saddam Hussein is one of the great public relations conjuring tricks of history. But they swung it. But the American public is not merely being mislead. It is being browbeaten & kept in a state of ignorance & fear. The carefully orchestrated neurosis should carry Bush & his fellow conspirators nicely into the next election. Those who are not with Bush are against him. Worse, they are with the enemy. Which is odd, because I'm dead against Bush, but I would love to see Saddam's downfall-just not on Bush's terms & not by his methods. And under the banner of such outrageous hypocrisy. The religious that will send American troops into battle is perhaps the most sickening aspect of this surreal war-to-be. Bush has an arm-lock on God. And God has very particular political opinions. God approved America to save the world in any way that suits America. God appointed Israel to be the nexus of America's Middle East policy, & anyone who wants to mess with that idea is a.) anti-semitic, b.) anti-american, c.) with the enemy, & d.) a terrorist. God also has pretty scary connections. In America, where all men are equal in His sight, if not in one another's, the Bush family numbers one President, one ex-president, one ex-head of the CIA, the Governer of Florida, & the ex-governer of Texas.----(Paris, France)

" Sad little Americans...just cry to your mommy. Oh your little egos are bruised! I see that your VP is now in the shit! 2000 G.I.'s dead for Bush's oil war...You should be soooo proud! Boo hoo hoo fucking whiners! Go tell someone who gives afuck! You voted for him, you deal with him!!!"---(Amsterdam, Holland)

" Funny that you simple minded fools think that you are doing something by not buying products from a country that's opposed to the war in Iraq. Keep drinking the Kool-Aid fools! Your leaders are going to jail for numerous crimes & still think they are gods! You show the same delusional love as those who followed Jim Jones all those many years ago!!!!---(France)

"You Are Being Manipulated, America!--New York Times names Vice President Dick Cheney in Valerie Plame CIA leak! Says Cheney told his Chief of Staff, Louis Libby! Do you see what they are doing, folks? They are E A S I N G the American people into the possibility that the Vice President may have been indicted! If they E A S E you into it, then maybe you wont move to destroy the goverment when the shit hits the fan & indictments come out. You are being MANIPULATED, America. Deliberatley manipulated by the media, in cooperation with the goverment. You see, if they ease you into the wrong-doing then you wont have a strong, knee-jerk reaction when the truth comes out. You know the truth, right? The truth that more than 100 dedicated , loyal American CIA Operatives around the world were KILLED after this name was leaked. The truth that the name was leaked as POLITICAL RETALIATION for the CIA Manager's husband- a U.S. Ambassador- daring to publicly dispute the factual basis of the Iraq war. You see if you HAVE that knee-jerk reaction, then some of you might get it in your heads to run some of these people out of Washington,D.C.-right now- on the wrong end of guns; & they simply cant allow that. So you have to be stroked. Massaged. Prepared...gently. Methodically. This way, when you find out the leaders you elected are lying, murderous scum, you wont go kill their sorry asses-which is exactly what they deserve! Enjoy the massage , America, because the hideous, murderous, truth will hit by Friday of this week. Bush & Cheney, along with a whole host of other high ranking goverment people ( about 28) have been criminally indicted by a federal grand jury in Chicago!---(Germany)

Rumsfeld & Company Profit From Bird Flu Bullshit Scam

Just when you thought that the current administration couldn't possibly become anymore corrupt or money-driven.....
The "Bird Flu" bullshit is the latest scam used to generate profits for pharmaceutical company insiders; insiders with large amounts of stockholdings in THE pharmaceutical company producing the drug Tamiflu, Gilead. And guess who's the former chairman of Gilead, as well as a major shareholder that will make huge profits from Tamiflu production??? U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld!!!! Also on the board of directors at Gilead are Bilderberger spokesman Etienne F. Davignon (Vice-Chairman, Suez-Tractebel) and Reagan-Bush Cabal insider former Secretary of State George P. Shultz,PhD. (http://gilead.com/wt/sec/bod) Another Bilderberger regular is Lodewijk J.R. de Vink, who sits on the board of Hoffman-La Roche, Gilead's partner. The Bird Flu scam will generate massive profits from globalist insiders like Rumsfeld, de Vink, Davignon, and Shultz.
Let's take a look at where TamiFlu came from, and by the way, Tamiflu is not a miracle vaccine against Avian Flu. In fact, all it will do is possibly make the symptoms a little less severe. On the downside, it will set you back $100 , and Dr. Tenpenny explained in her Flu Tele Clinic that Tamiflu can actually cause the virus to mutate into a more dangerous and potent viral strain.
Tamiflu was developed and produced by the company called Gilead Sciences, a company that called Donald Rumsfeld it's president and which Rumsfeld still owns huge amounts of stock in. With the goverment purchasing 20 million doses of the drug at $100 a pop, the profit of Gilead will climb significantly. Now that the panic has been set in place, the concerned public may see no argument with the U.S. goverment spending $ 2 fucking billion dollars for a drug that appears to have questionable efficacy, and may infact cause more harm than good. If you can remember back, the fear of Swine Flu was sold in much the same way as fear of Avian Flu is today.
I'm sure some people out there reading this are thinking this is sounding like a conspiracy theorists rantings, but before you pull the wool over your eyes, you may want to do some investigating of your own (i've done hours of it myself). If you do you will find that Rumsfeld has been involved with other companies that stood to gain from goverment corporate interests. The Bonehead Compendium reported back in Sept. of 2004 that Rumsfeld had been named as a defendant in a class action lawsuit against G.D. Searle NutraSweet. The FDA denied approval of aspartame (google this shit) for some 16 years, due to evidence that this additive contributes to the development of brain tumors and can precipitate and aggravate diabetes and it's complications. So what does Rumsfeld have to do with this additive called aspartane in NutraSweet you ask? Well, Donald Rumsfeld was Gerald Ford's Chief of Staff (yeah, he's that old). When he left the Ford administration he became the CEO, President, and Chairman of aspartame producer G.D. Searle. And Oh! the coincidence that after Rumsfeld became CEO at Searle and ONE DAY AFTER REAGAN'S INAUGURATION, aspartame SUDDENLY became a safe and wonderful additive and was approved by Reagan-appointed FDA commissioner Arthur Hayes. Shortly after, Hayes signed a 10 year contract with NutraSweet's public relations firm at $ 1000 a day!!
Conclusion? The Bird Flu is a fabricated, full of shit story put out by our goverment to cause pure, unadulterated panic, as well as guarantee political capital, without consideration of our health and lives.. It's all about Fear and Money. And that's about all this current administration is capable of doing. Instilling fear and gaining money. Corrupt, Corrupt, Corrupt. Therefore, Impeach, Impeach, Impeach.

The World Can't Wait! Drive Out The Bush Regime! 11/2/05


The World Can't Wait! Drive Out The Bush Regime! Mobilize for November 2nd,2005!!!
Alright people, there is to be a HUGE protest against the Bush Regime November 2nd . Go to http://worldcantwait.org for details regarding your city and hometown's involvement. If there isnt any---make one! Get your ass in the streets and let yourself be heard! This is nationwide and endorsed by The After Downing Street Coalition, Mumia Abu-Jamal, Code Pink, Democrats.com, Kathleen Hanna, Not In Our Name, Ozomatli, Cindy Sheehan, Progressive Democrats of America, etc,etc.
Your Goverment,on the basis of outrageous lies, is waging a murderous & utterly illegitimate war in Iraq, with other countries in their sights. Your Goverment is openly torturing people, & justifying it. Your Goverment puts people in jail on the merest suspicion, refusing them laywers,& either holding them indefinitely or deporting them in the dead of night.

Your Goverment is moving each day closer to a theocracy, where a narrow & hateful brand of Christian fundamentalism will rule.

Your Goverment suppresses the science that does not fit its religious, political, & economic agenda, forcing present & future generations to pay a terrible price.

Your Goverment is moving to deny women here, & all over the world, the right to birth control & abortion.

Your Goverment enforces a culture of greed, bigotry, intolerance & ignorance.

People look at all this & think Hitler-& they are right to do so. The Bush regime is setting out to radically remake society very quickly, in a fascist way, & for generations to come. We must act now; the future is in the balance.
Millions & millions are deeply disturbed & outraged by this. They recognize the need for a vehicle to express this outrage, yet they cannot find it; politics as usual cannot meet the enormity of the challenge,& people sense this.
There is not going to be some magical "pendulum swing". People who steal elections & believe they're on a "mission from God" will not go without a fight.
There is not going to be some savior from the Democratic Party. This whole idea of putting our hopes & energies into "leaders" who tell us to seek common ground with fascists & religious fanatics is proving every day to be a disaster, & actually serves to demobilize people.
But silence & paralysis are NOT acceptable. That which you will not resist & mobilize to stop, you will learn-or be forced-to accept. There is no escaping it: the whole disastrous course of this Bush regime must be STOPPED. And we must taje the responsibility to do it.
On November 2nd, the first anniversary of Bush's "re-election", we will take the first major step in this by organizing a truly massive day of resistance all over the country. People everywhere will walk out of school, take work off, will come downtown, set out there, going through the streets & calling on many more to JOIN US. Making a powerful statement: No! THIS REGIME DOES NOT REPRESENT US! AND WE WILL DRIVE IT OUT!
Again .....go to http://worldcantwait.org for more information.

Arrest Warrant Issued for DeLay!!!!!!!

A Texas court has issued an arrest warrant for Tom DeLay today, and set an initial $10,000 bail as a routine step before his court appearance on conspiracy and money laundering charges!
Court officials said DeLay was ordered to appear at the Fort Bend County, Texas jail for booking, where he will probably be fingerprinted and photographed. His lawyer has declined to say when DeLay will surrender to authorities but that he will make a court appearance Friday.
Holy Hell.....Maybe there is a God!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Former CIA Analyst: Goverment Possibly Manufacturing Phony Terrorism

Former CIA Analyst, Ray McGovern, appeared on a radio show Oct.17th about the Iraq War and the war on terror. He suggested that over the past few months there has been a "sea of change" in public opinion of the war in Iraq, and now over two thirds of Americans are against the war and now see through the Neo-con propaganda. (about fucking time!)
McGovern stated that the war "has nothing to do with democracy or freedom or defending " our way of life", it is to do with enriching the pockets of those who support this administration."
Congressman Ron Paul had recently been on the same radio talk show with host Alex Jones and said that the Bush administration is openly trying to set up a martial law police state in the U.S.. McGovern responded by saying, " Well it does seem that those who have Bush's ear are hell bent on giving away or providing wider responsibilities to our military. Witness what they are talking about now with giving primary responsibility for catastrophes, for hurricanes and so forth. Our military has been built up as an instrument of power but has never existed with this kind of potency before, and so we all need to look at this because there are laws against using the military in law enforcement capacities and we need to get Congressmen and Senators and say"look enough of this stuff"."
McGovern said that if there were another major attack in the U.S., it would mean a martial law state (according to General Tommy Franks) and a breakdown in our freedoms. He suggests that if we did have another attack, we should not accept what the goverment tells us because it could be them carrying out the terrror. (if McGovern turns up dead and ruled a "suicide"-we know why!)
He then went on to say he feels that the Bush administration will come toppling down due to the upcoming indictments and the way it has lied to justify the Iraq war.
But he warned that we need to stay on top of this and expose the lies, and if we stop looking they WILL get away with ANYTHING they want.
I agree. We can't let up on these pigs! Our founders who wrote our Constitution gave us the ability to impeach any goverment that takes away out liberties or any President that attempts to act like an Emperor or King.
This President has lied to get us to back a war for his benefit, he's about to veto a ban on torture, and has surrounded himself with Cronies willing to play dirty and illegal for power and money. What the fuck more does this administration need to do before we remove their ass from power???????

Stupid Bush Quote Of The Day

Whistle Blowers Identifying Global 'Al-Qaeda' Terrorism As State Controlled


Former Indonesian President Abdurraham Wahid fingered the Indonesian authorites as the true culprits behind the 2002 Bali bombings in an interview for an Australian documentary.
Wahid said that the authorities were acting at the bidding of Western intelligence agencies. Some other sources used in the documentary were adamant that there was no Al-Qaeda affiliated terrorist groups in existence that were not controlled by intelligence agencies. Sources told the film makers that goverment connected establishment figures are carrying out an agenda of depopulation in targeted areas by lowering the value of property and resources, then buying it cheap. Indonesia is renowned for the rampant corruption and state involvment in terrorist attacks.
The U.S. goverment had advanced knowledge of the October 12, 2002 bombing in Bali. They passed the information on to the Taiwanese goverment and told them to keep it top secret. Just hours after the bombing the U.S. withdrew all of it's administrative staff and diplomats from Indonesia, calling it a 'security threat'. The same warning was also recieved by the British goverment, but it was not passed on to any relevant authority there.
Immediatley after the bombing the FBI, British secret police, and the Australian secret service rushed in and took charge of the investigation, which angered the Indonesian and Balinese authorities.
Why were the U.S. , British, and Australian authorities so eager to take control? Were they trying to cover their tracks and make them believe it was the work of suicide bombers?
Oh, and did I mention that the plastic explosives used in the attack were of military origin, and were used by the U.S. military?!
Meanwhile, the Iranian goverment is accusing the U.S. and Britian of staging car bombings in Iraq and also being behind bombings in Iran in an attempt to destablilize the goverment.
And here in the U.S., the so-called terror threat to New York subways was an admitted hoax, this released only after Mayor Bloomberg's approval ratings had gone up and enough attention had been distracted away from the imminent indictments of the Bush administration.
Hmmmmmmmm......

EFF Reveals Tracking Codes In Xerox Printers

Next time your at the office printing a document from a color laser printer, you might want to remember this...
Just because the printed document dosen't carry your name, dosen't mean that no one is tracing it back to you! The Electronic Frontier Foundation says that it has cracked the tracking codes that are embedded in Xerox Corporation's DocuColor laser printers. These codes are only one way that manufacturer's use technology to help goverments fight money counterfeiting.
Lee Tien, a EFF senior staff attorney said, " Underground democracy movements...will always need the anonymity of simple paper documents, but this technology makes it easier for goverments to find dissenters. Even worse, it shows how the goverment and private industry make backroom deals to weaken our privacy by compromising everyday equipment like printers."
Researchers have found patterns of yellow dots arranged in 15 by 8 grids and printed repeatedly over every color page. The dots are only visable with a magnifying glass or under a blue light, which causes the yellow dots to look black.
Researchers analyzing test pages printed out at various FedEx Kinko's locations, found that some of the dots correspond to the printers' serial numbers. Other dots refer to the time and date of the printing.
The Secret Service says that this technology simply makes it harder to use that equpiment for illegal activity of reproducing U.S. currency.
Xerox spokesman Bill McKee said, " the company does not routinely share any information about it's customers", though the company does respond to requests from law enforcement.
Adobe Systems,Inc has also acknowledged, quietly though, adding the goverment software to it's Photoshop software at the request of international bankers and regulators.
David Skidmore, spokesman at the Federal Reserve Board, has said that the technology called Counterfeit Deterrence System is aimed mostly at personal computers and ink-jet printers, not the fancy, high-end printers like DocuColor.
--This reeks of Big Brother trying to track and find dissenters. Orwell is turning in his grave.

Nazi March Sparks Riot In Ohio

A riot broke out Saturday in Toledo, Ohio when protesters confronted members of America's Nazi Party. They had gathered in a city park to march through the neighborhood under police protection. Rioters threw rocks at police, set fire to a neighborhood bar, vandalized cars and stores,etc. More than 100 people were arrested.
Gang members had planned to turn out in force to protest/confront the white supremacist group's march. The neo-Nazi group became interested in the neighborhood because a white resident complained to police about gang violence. A state of emergency remained in effect through the weekend.
Authorities have said that they want to determine why protesters turned their anger toward police after the Nazi group had left. Well, it dosen't take a genius to figure that out! First of all, the Nazi march was one protected by the police. Also , there evidently has been some tension between the police and the black citizens. I do feel that the protesters went too far, but when a hate group is allowed to march through their neighborhood with police protection, it's bound to boil some blood. The mob-mentality was rampant. People became very angry when they seen police only pushing back the black protesters, not the Nazi's.
Police Chief Navarre said after the riots, " There are some things that we would have done different. We wouldn't have allowed that group to go into a neighborhood...The march in that neighborhood was a bad idea. I mean, the march never took place. We couldn't have let it take place. These people would have been eaten alive." Even the police chief knew it was a bad idea that was just asking for violence.
Although both sides are to blame, I feel the Nazi's pushed the buttons of the already angry black and minority citizens by making the decision to march through their neighborhood and taunt them. Not cool.
Whats your opinion? Do you feel it was the Nazi groups fault or the protesters fault?

Stupid Bush Quote Of The Day

White House Tries To Chill Out Religious Conservative Repubs.


Today Bush and his Cronies at the White House defended his nomination of Harriet 'I'm a tool' Miers, saying that she is highly qualified, someone who would strictly interpret the Constitution, a trailblazer in law in Texas, and a religious person.
"People are interested to know why I picked Harriet Miers", Bush said. " They want to know Harriet Miers' background. They want to know as much as they possibly can before they form opinions. Part of Harriet Miers is her religion."
That comment pissed off us critics of the nomination because it's being used to sell Miers to the right-wing conservative base. Bush expects us to trust him and support his nomination because she's religious? All the more reason not to support her.
James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family, said that Karl Rove reassured him that Miers was an " evangelical Christian from a very conservative church, which is almost universally pro-life."
Nut-fuck Pat Robertson, who endorses Miers, said, " They're going to turn against a Christian who is a conservative picked by a conservative president and they're going to vote against her for confirmation? Not on your sweet life, if they want to stay in office."
How can we be surprised anymore that a self-proclaimed conservative who "talks to Jesus" made a decision( or told to make one) that pushes this country farther away from the ideals put forth by the founders?
Religion needs to stay the hell out of goverment and the White House, as well as the Supreme Court. Bush is trying to erase the line drawn between church and state. Harriet Miers' only qualifications, in Bush's eyes, is that she is a religious conservative who will probably go against her own sex and vote to reverse Roe vs. Wade.

Terrorists To Strike NYC Subways; Bombs Hidden In 'My Little Pony' Backpacks

Law enforcement officials said Sunday," the plot to bomb city subways with remote controlled explosives has not been corroborated after days of investigation". This is just the latest of fake terror alerts that are being used for multiple reasons. One reason is to create and maintain fear amongst Americans, as well as control us into accepting the continuing "war on terror". Another reason that I firmly believe is that these are used to distract our attention away from other things going on in the news, such as the Hurricane Katrina disaster, Republican corruption, Supreme Court nominations, and Bush's approval rating hitting a record low of 37%.
New York Mayor Bloomberg has been defending the decision to announce the threats and said that he would continue to ride the subway. If he felt there was a credible threat to New York City subways, do you really think he would be riding them? I don't buy it.
All that these fake threats seem to do is threaten our rights and liberties and keep us under the watchful eye of Big Brother, as well as instill fear. Random bag searches, large numbers of police, undercover agents riding on subways, suffocate our civil liberties. We are being forced to consider all this normal. The sheep are sleepwalking towards a police state without even realizing it. Enough of the line, " Well, we now live in dangerous times". I am not comfortable with the sight if armed troops watching public places. What ever happened to the Posse Comitatus law?
The ultimate form of control is fear. The New World Order of the U.S. and British goverments know this and use it often.
Read Orwell's 1984.

Song Of The Day

Ani DiFranco's song "Animal" is probably one of the best songs around that describes how many of us are currently feeling......
"More and more there is this animal
looking out through my eyes
at all the traffic on the road to nowhere
at all the shiny stuff around to buy
at all the wires in the air
at all the people shopping
for the same blank stare
at America the drastic
that isolated geographic
that's become infested with millionaires
When you grow up surrounded
by willful ignorance
you have to believe mercy has it's own country
& that it's round & borderless
& then you have to grow wings
& rise above it all
like there
where that hawk is circling above the strip mall
More & more there is this animal
looking out through my eyes
seeing that animals only take from this world
what they need to survive
but she is prowling through all the religions of man
seeing that time & time & time again
their gods have made them special & above
nature's law & the respect thereof
Ask any eco-system
harm here is harm there...& there...& there
& aggression begets aggression
it's a very simple lesson
that long proceded any king of heaven
& THERE'S THIS BRUTAL IMPERIAL POWER
THAT MY PASSPORT SAYS I REPRESENT
BUT IT WILL NEVER REPRESENT WHERE MY HEART LIVES
ONLY VAGUELY WHERE IT WENT"

Chiapas Floods


In Chiapas ,Mexico, a horrible flood has ravaged the area due to Hurricane Stan. People are being dragged away & killed by the raging currents of a river that overflowed & came through the city. If you are unaware of the previous problems the beautiful people of Chiapas have been going through for years, you should check out http://flag.blackened.net/revolt/mexico.html. The Mexican goverment has been trying to deny the indigenous people of Chiapas their elementary rights, their land, their dignity, & freedom for years. The people of Chiapas have risen up in the form of the rebel group the Zapatistas. The influence of the rebels of Chiapas grew as they carried forward their efforts to take control of their lives & lands. Their leader Marcos has written that words, ideas, video cameras, and hope, are also weapons we can use for revolution.
My thoughts are with the Zapatistas of Chiapas tonight, these people have been living in poverty due to the Mexican goverment, & now have to endure this horrible flood. May you rise up out of this as you have always done in the past.
" As the Zapatistas force us to recognize, it is one world order from the forests of Chiapas to Cheney's 'new Europe'. After over 500 years of conquest, the indigenous people already know what the rest of us must learn about empires- that they exploit the many for the privileges of the few, that they ransack the cultures of antiquity, that they place a burden even on the mother countries. But in their actions & writings, the Zapatistas are inspiring a new generation to join the struggle for a better world." -Tom Hayden (activist,writer,former Ca.State Senator)

Avian Flu...Truth or Conspiracy?

Outbreaks of Avian or Bird Flu have been reported to have occured in poultry in 8 asian countries ( Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Japan, Laos, S.Korea, Thailand, & Vietnam) recently. Malasia and Turkey are the most recent additions. The virus usually does not infect humans, however there have been reported cases of human contact, and the death rate has been about 50%.
George W. Bush seems to be really pushing for not only a vaccine, but for Congress to give him the power to use the military in law enforcement roles in the event of a bird flu pandemic here in the United States! Bush even brought up the idea of forced quarantine! We have the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 which bans the military from participating in police-type activity on U.S. soil, but Bush would just love to overturn that. Giving the military a law enforcement role here in the U.S. is not only Draconian in nature, but basically martial law.
There has been talk from conspiracy theorists that this is just a way for Bush to not only re-direct our attention to something else besides the Iraq War fuck-up, Hurricane Katrina fuck-up, plummeting polls, corrupt administration, etc, but an attempt to rig the laws to accommodate his vision of a police state and give tremendous control and power over the United States citizens.
Although most reports claim there is no vaccine as of yet, most people don't know that Australia does have an antiviral drug that can protect against bird flu. In fact, they have sold out of it. A French vaccine maker, Sanofi-Pasteur, also has a bird flu vaccine that the U.S. just bought $100 million dollars worth from.
Should we be concerned, or is this just another fearmongering campaign to make millions for the big pharmaceutical companys & keep us suffocated by Big Brother??? Is Bush trying to drive our attention away from his many fuck-ups and instill fear in us? Remember SARS was never what they cracked it up to be.
One thing is clear, if an avian flu outbreak did occur here, then the justification to withhold our Constitutional rights will be pushed to the max. In April, Bush added pandemic influenza to a list of diseases for which mandatory quarantine is authorized. It has me thinking...what about you?

Firefighters Ordered To Stand With Schwarzenegger During Press Conf.


Last week, California was enduring wildfires in and around the Los Angeles area. Governer Arnold Schwarzenegger (I still can't get used to saying that!) held a press conference to discuss the fires and praise the firefighters. I wrote a post about this recently (see below), and when the news announced this I knew I couldn't miss it. California firefighters are not happy with Arnold at all right now because he vetoed 4 bills which would have provided firefighters with extra funding, new helicopters, safety equipment, etc. There are numerous television commercials running here in L.A. that bash Schwarzenegger for this. So when I heard about this press conference, I knew there would be tension.
According to Pat McOsken, president of United Firefighters of Los Angeles, the firefighters standing behind Schwarzenegger and shaking his hand were acting under duress. Some of the firefighters approached him at the command center and expressed their unhappiness with being told to be a part of the press conference. The firefighters were told to ask their chiefs if it was an order. The answer = Yes. And you could see it on their faces. When confronted about the order, Schwarzenegger said that everybody is ordered to do things at one point or another, that someone was ordered to put up the podium, as well as bring in the microphone.
Maybe there will be an order not to re-elect his ass as well!

Condi Gets The Hook-Up!

FOX News correspondent James Rosen seems to be trying to set up Condoleezza Rice with FOX News anchorwoman Lauren Green! This not only has me laughing out loud, but scratching my head as well. I don't really question whether or not Condi's a lesbian, it's the fact that IF she is, what the hell is she doing working for the Bush/Republican Right-Wing Christian administration??? Here's the transcript which you can read in full at the official U.S. Department of State website......

ROSEN: ...All right. I close with a gift for you. You met this person once, I believe, but you really, I think, ought to know each other because this woman is...I think you'll have an interest in knowing her. She is one of our FOX News anchors in New York. Her name is Lauren Green. She is brilliant, she's beautiful, she's African-American, she's single and she's a concert pianist in her spare time.

RICE: My goodness.

ROSEN: And she asked me to give you her CD and I promised her that I would.

RICE: That's perfect.

ROSEN: And here's her doing a number of classical pieces.

RICE: Well, that's special.

ROSEN: So there you have it.

RICE: Thank her very much for me and I look forward to seeing her sometime.

ROSEN: All right. She's going to want to hear from you.

RICE: And maybe even playing dual piano sometime.

I always knew she was a huge tool, being an African-American woman working side by side with Bush(&loving it!) and all, but this really would take the cake! Anyways, I found the transcript very funny & this is my take on what Condi REALLY was thinking......

ROSEN: All right. I close with a gift to you. You met this person once, I believe, but you really, I think, ought to know each other because this woman is...I think you'll have an interest in knowing her. She is one of our FOX News anchors in New York. Her name is Lauren Green. She is brilliant, she's beautiful, she's African-American, she's single and she's a concert pianist in her spare time.

RICE: Mmmmm hmmmm! So hook a sister up!

ROSEN: And she asked me to give you her CD and I promised her that i would.

RICE: Right on! I'll play it while I soak in the tub tonight!

ROSEN: And here's her doing a number of classical pieces.

RICE: Sweet! She's hot, smart, and plays classical piano?! I'm sold!

ROSEN: So there you have it.

RICE: Thank her for me and I can't wait to see her!

ROSEN: All right. She's going to want to hear from you.

RICE: I'm down!! And maybe I'll even take her to that bar, The G-Spot. And after, take her back to my place for some dual piano playin', know what I'm talkin' sayin' '?!!

Tom DeLay Indicted Again, For Money Laundering!

HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA !!!!

Another Loyal Bush Buddy Nominated For Supreme Court


President Bush nominated White House Counsel Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court Monday. And is it no surprise that Harriet Miers is a very loyal Bush friend & a past personal lawyer to him? She is a member of a small band of loyalists that followed Bush from Texas & once served as council for his gubernatorial campaigns, as well as having been involved in the litigation effort in Bush vs. Gore. Miers served as the president's Staff Secretary, reviewing any & every piece of paper that came across his desk (she probably knows many dirty little secrets!).
Although Bush feels she is qualified for the Supreme Court, I, and many others, find the fact that he selected a loyal political ally with no judicial experience, rather stinky.
But it gets better, trust me. During Bush's first term as governer, information turned up by Harriet Miers persuaded a local judge to excuse Bush from jury duty, a civic task that would have forced him to come clean about his 1976 arrest for drunk driving in Maine. We all found out about that during Bush's 2000 presidential campaign.
It gets even better than that! Miers contributed money to Bush when he first ran for president in 2000, as well as $ 5,000 she gave to the Bush-Cheney Recount Fund after the post-election fight that sealed his win over Gore.
And even better yet... State records show Miers was paid $ 19,000 by the Bush gobernatorial campaign. She identified a problem- rumors that Bush had help from his daddy in getting into the National Guard back in 1968. Ben Barnes, a Texas Democrat & former speaker of the house, told friends he used his influence to get The Shrub a Guard spot after reviewing a request from Texas oilman Sid Adger. Both Bush Sr. & Bush Jr. deny seeking any help from Barnes or Adger.
Around the same time this was going on Miers was also the Bush-named chair of the scandal-plagued Texas Lottery Commission. A big issue before Miers & the commission was whether to retain lottery operator, Gtech, which was invloved in a bribery scandal. Ben Barnes was Gtech's main lobbyist in Texas, he was the one who had dish on how Bush got into the National Guard & avoided Vietnam. Barnes was fired from Gtech in 1997, but recieved a severance pay of a whopping $23 million! The suit involving Barnes was brought by former Texas lottery director Lawrence Littwin, who was fired by Harriet Miers in Oct 97 after 5 months on the job. It contends that Gtech Corp, which runs the state lottery & employed Barnes as a lobbyist for more than $3 million a year, was responsible for Littwin's dismissal
In exchange for Barnes silence about Bush's entry into the National Guard, Gtech was allowed to keep the lottery contract.
Man, this reaks! This woman was instrumental in burying & hiding the truth! It's no wonder Bush is rewarding her by nominating her to the Supreme Court!
It seems that Bush will appoint his friends & loyal followers to any job with an opening. Lottery Commission, City Council, Deputy Chief of Staff--FEMA Director! It's as if Bush says to them, " Hmmmm, where can I put ya? Oh, there's an opening as FEMA Director, want that? No experience? No problem!--We can get around that, the American people are fools that never pay attention!"
----Well, I'm paying attention George, & I know quite a few others are as well.
Feel free to comment on this stinky shit!!

Here's a bad cell phone pic of the smoke from outside my home (cough-cough).

And The Award For The "Biggest Tool" Goes To....



Arnold Schwarzengger!!
Not only did this jerk just veto the gay marriage bill here in California, but manages to piss off Los Angeles firefighters, nurses, and teachers as well!
Although Schwarzenegger indicated earlier this month that he would veto the California gay marriage bill passed by the California Assembly, it still is a ridiculous crock of shit. Ahnold said that he would leave the issue of same-sex marriage to voters and the courts. He has no backbone to go against all his Republican friends that got him his job. What is he so threatened by? All I ever hear is how gay marriage threatens the "sanctity" of straight marriage. BULLSHIT! You breeder's fuck up marriage all on your own! Just look at the divorce rate!
And on to another reason that gives Schwarzenegger the "Biggest Tool" Award.......
As the Los Angeles fires raged, I was wondering if Schwarzenegger would make an appearance at the scene or at least comment on it. You see, here in California the firefighters (not to mention the teachers and nurses) are real pissed off at Arnold because he vetoed 4 bills which would have provided firefighters with extra funding, safety equipment, new helicopters, etc. Firefighters, nurses, and teachers have a sling of commercials on t.v. bashing Schwarzenegger. As I coughed and choked on smoke, and brushed the ash off my head, I walked inside to catch part of the press conference of Schwarzenegger standing at a podium with 2 fire trucks parked behind him and about 15 firefighters standing around him! I giggled and wondered how uncomfortable he felt, just then a reporter asked him why he vetoed the bills mentioned above! Arnold replied, " I don't think we should bring politics into this." He added that he's a great friend of firefighters because he played one once in a movie!
I wonder how much will-power it took for those firefighters to keep from turning their hose on him!!!
