Tthey didn't have a Plan B. They didn't bother with hardened transport, Kevlar vests or even enough water or bullets in 18 months of planning invasion --they couldn't be bothered. No, their Plan A called for invading the two countries that bordered the Caspian Sea, loot Iraq's assets, load the booty on to waiting ships and leave --both countries to clean up the mess.
They twisted Natural forces, perverted, bent Nature to their will. They counted on using fear and "Patriot" Act of theft and religion and money to get More.
Instead rendered mute by Americans, disgusted with their arrogance, their indifference, their imcompetance as they did oily boys and their patrons' business. Now: the President of Vice must sit quietly at table surrounded by those who are empowered to render them impotent, without saying a word.
Nature Does Not Make Mistakes. Now: they must pay. Now they must confront the gravity of what they have wrought. They have to do the actual work of governing, of finding a Real way out, of having to clean up their messes.
There weren't enough "vote" machines that could ever be built to stop that 'pay day.'
About 17 years ago my parents moved to into a community they discovered, as they got to know their neighbors, mostly of right-wing to extreme right-wing Republicans. They all made a joint decision some years ago not to discuss politics, in order to get along and maintain community harmony. Early this past summer they told me: several of their neighbors had decided to vote for a Democrat and told my parents so, so disgusted were they with the current Administration. I was elated, very nearly posted on it, But I've seen too many un-naturual acts committed and stayed silent not to assume any thing. David Brooks of NY TIMES recently revealed: Republicans had taken a poll 13 months before the election and knew --they were going to loose --but refused to believe it. He also stayed silent.
Don't believe the religious right-wing whining. If Occupant was an Actual leader, gave a damn about doing the right thing: Rummy would have been booted out immediately after Iraq prison scandal shamed all Americans. Booting his butt "before the election" would way not have saved this Administration or saved a "few seats."
Personal Note: This month is one year anniversary of this blog. Originally, begun as reaction, outrage --of the deceit; that doctors not only failed to cure Peter Jennings, but did nothing whatsoever to halt the disease --that killed him. I knew he chose "the most aggressive" methods of Western medicine hoping to restore his health; I knew doctors used him...in various ways, instead of using Nature to cure him. I thought of all the politics involved in those decisions...I was, am, disgusted with those politics that kill. But as I watched the politics going on daily, along with the deaths, I began to have an inkling that the 2006 election was going to also be hijacked. I put aside vast material on protecting one's health from such politics, to focus on the politics. After election I was exhausted; a few days rest turned into a longer break. Had I intended it, I would have posted notice.
So thank you for returning this past year. I'll try to post more often, more on health along with other ways to protect onesself. I hope you had a tasty Thanksgiving. Don't spend much money this holiday season, don't create regret. Put as much money as you can into savings account. Spammers are still trying to post in Comments, so feel free to post your thoughts, opinion and I will enable.
Next: Iraq Remedy, What to do about Iraq.

Significant part of the book: material based on classified documents, which he said were difficult to obtain. Some came from people who wanted him to know things. He also got interviews. One: ON the Record with the President of Vice, so enraged "judge" Scalia's hunting partner, that one day Woodward picked up his phone, he said, to hear President of Vice swear, slam the phone. Ahhh...so dignified...veneer peeled....
Which part didn't the President of Vice care for --classified documents --insiders' sharing --or: that he opened his mouth and truth flew out, for a change--while a reporter was there to 'capture the moment'....
Woodward Told a Story
Woodward and his wife went to a social event in Washington and was seated at table with Vice President Al Gore and wife Tipper. He talked to Mr. Gore about the difficulty of getting information and he said:
"you were part of an administration for eight years, you were on the inside, you saw everything, you sat in on meetings, you know what it's like. How much do we know about what goes on?"
Vice President Gore: "1%"
Woodward was stunned. "Okay, supposing you wrote about your experience in office, what you saw and learned and you wrote a memoir. How much would we know then?"
--Woodward to Letterman: --I asked him --from all the things that happened while he was in office, what he knew, I figured if he wrote about it he would say something like 90% or maybe 80%.
Vice President Gore: "2%"
--Woodward: I was shocked. It keeps me up at night...wondering what we don't know...things I want to know....

--to honor the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month --Peace Accords & Treaties signed, ending World War I, the "war to end all wars"...we didn't learn much... germans declared War on the world, for the second time because of humiliation from the first one...11 million people died --6 million murdered plus 5 million babies, grandparents, beautiful young strong healthy men, writers, poets, mothers, painters, cousins and twins, architects, aunts and uncles, pilots, doctors, lovers...people with dreams... because the world wanted freedom and had no better remedy than to fight for it with life....

Nature does not make mistakes.... When Rove escaped federal indictment I KNEW: he would NOT escape public humiliation of another kind. –I felt it meant: he would be brought to his knees in the next election. However: the people running this Administration and the people behind them –want certain things, so strongly, I believe, that I had real fear, I'll admit it now –that they would thwart this election, by screwing with the electronic "vote" machines, again, and Justice...delivered some other way.
“…I heard the news today, oh boy…”
News: the Special Prosecutor Won’t indict Karl-“brains”-behind-Oval-Office-occupant-Rove, for violating Federal Secrets Act revealing CIA agent’s identity. Angry? Why?
Karl Rove may be “elated” today: but Now he will receive his True sentence. The Universe will not allow escape.
Don't Worry ~Be Happy...We know what he did, but the Universe knows: how to inflict
His sentence, Among other things: he is now “free” to “orchestrate” the next election.
He will receive: everything he has coming….
Look Forward to it –watch it –enjoy it...they can run nekid through the Rose Garden, it won't change what's coming...justice meted out by the Universe: superior to Man’s….
Though they tried to do it again, Expected it to work again, they were thwarted. This election: they got What they Deserved.
I am happy about the Election, somewhat...(and relieved), but I believe, suspect, fear now, that: 1999 will be looked at as the apex of the US. From 2000: the country went on down-slide to totalitarianism –dictatorship; that the Grand Experiment that is America ended with 2000 "election"... not ever the same or rise to any grandness.
The people who hijacked the Republcan Party: are only in remission –temporarily. If you saw Occupant at press conference this morning: you saw almost charming side. Why. He dumped arrogant incompetent "war" archietect Rummy. Why. –Concession to voters? Or: they will do, say whatever it takes –for power. He, they are willing to sound chastised, work with a woman –whatever it takes, as long as: they Keep the White House in 2008 in Republican hands --hands they can control.Now: Democratic Party must become strong; do smart things. They have only one and a half years. You have only one and half years.
I had hoped, for good long while, European Union would coalese, fast enough, and become strong –strong enough to be world power; challenge/check to power of this country. Tony Blair has not been a leader, may have done so much damage to the European Union that it won't fulfill its goal -for a long time.
Now two things give me hope: increasing global warming; disillusionment of Evangelical Christians.
If enough people –alarmed, outraged, motivated: demand changes to reduce planet pollution –they could de-rail whatever hidden agenda of certain people.
If enough religious people: stop listening to 'leaders' and realize that after all the money, all the votes they contributed –netted no meaningful results –become realistic –put their energy into other ways to accomplish whatever their goals are –stop funding, stop voting for people who only use them, government Administrations will stop trying to use them; will be forced to go back to government's true purpose:
Actually protect its citizens; balance budget --make up massive deficit; provide economic environment for all to prosper; treating all –equally, fairly, indifferent to differences.
First impending catastrophy: could 'fuel' all the others...make it possible.REMEDIES
These people will not quit –they haven't given up their plans, only delayed them.
You must be:
-well-informed, vigiliant, proactive, thrifty, protective as never before
-Stop using plastic –going into debt, borrowing. Every time you use Debt cards, you are borrowing –against your own future and you are helping banks, corporations to use their power against you
-Get off the plastic diet: must make purchase -Use CASH; buy from local individual shops
Believe it: You MUST save money –as Much as you can manage and then some more
-Open a ROTH-IRA: ask any local bank if they can open for you; if you take the time: search for best interest rate on-line; you have until December 31 to put in several thousand dollars --which won't be taxable on Income Tax Return next year.
-Keep Healthy: eat fruit, vegetables --all colors -fresh, organic (--no pesticide) or frozen --as much as you want; cut way back on flesh --beef, fish, chicken, pig; for high-quality/low cost protein eat: cottage cheese

Polls open and close at different hours across the country --and they require various things before you can sign in to vote and get a ballot. Some require: Birth Certificate or picture ID or Driver's License or utility bill showing your name, current address --some require all of them. Why did Majority Party in Congress change the voting rules --require identification to vote? They hope you, the forgetful, poor and new citizens will not have necessary ID --or will not know that the rules have changed --to prevent voting. THAT is how fearful they are of Voters' wrath for things they have done past six years.
Too bad! Enter your Zip Code --find your Polling Place, map, your Registrar of Voter's address & phone and Find Out what your are required to: Bring to the Polls!
If you don't want to use the Locator link above: open Google >enter your City and add 'dot gov' --to reach your area's Registrar of Voters website. It will list ID requirements to vote.
If you think it should be as easy to vote in the US as it is in Iraq: Vote for someone else to represent you in Congress.
Remember: As long as you are registered to vote You have the Right to Vote
--don't allow anyone to prevent you from voting
-Demandd a paper ballot
-If electronic "vote" machine is only way to vote: request paper receipt
-If you cannot get a paper receipt of your vote --or you don't have confidence: Request a Provisional Ballot --it is your Right --in every state, to cast a Provisional Ballot, which you fill-in by hand; watch the Poll worker insert it in the box
-If you suspect irregularity of any kind: call the Democratic Party. They will have voting monitors for this situation
OFFER: neighbors, co-workers, senior adults a ride to the Polls; call your Party's local office: to volunteer, see if they have a list of people in your area who need a ride to the Polls.
Election Results NBC has decided: which candidate should win governor's race in one state --they had him on three times --in prime time --but NBC won't allow his opponent ANY air time. NBC received Thousands of e-mails and phone calls requesting equal time. NBC refused. That's going on in California. Would you like that to happen in your state? It's going around the Net: when you turn on TV to watch election results BOYCOTT NBC --e-mail, tell your friends: Don't Watch NBC.

Did you watch "60 Minutes" --to see stories about the election? CBS couldn't do that --they had Priorities: Profile on unknown Congressman from non-pivotal state, one on recycling --followed by deep insightful examination --of an Act-or.
--Inform --examine issues --depth on subjects about Where this country is headed? --Your life --subjects that Matter to you to make Decision? Naw. Very Important stuff, crammed full of garbage aimed --Designed: to help current Oval Office occupant, Jr. --Proof: in the 'profile' of the Congressman who has been trying to expose, cut 'special' projects--Earmarks-- tacked onto Bills, in the middle of the night, favors to lobbyists in exchange for campaign donations, They DIDN'T say --the True size of the deficit --what Republican spending has done to the country. Why not?
--Republicans keep repeating the Line: "great econmoy" --but where is the Rest of the story? If you save your money to protect yourself --if you stop shopping: this country will have to borrow even More than the $3 1/2 billion they have to borrow Every Week.
Dept. of Defense/Pentagoons: get $490 BILLION --Every year. --Why wasn't Some spent on Kevlar bullet-proof jackets for the troops in Iraq they claim to care about? --Spent for maps, intel, translators --hardened transport --why??? CBS: didn't have "time" for those questions, on election eve.
--That's the deal CBS/Viacom cut with this "administration."
More than three million Americans wrote to FCC --faxed --e-mailed --phoned to ask/beg/demand that they Leave the rules alone. So many people --from National Rifle Assoc, Artists, ACLU, Christrian Coalition, independent newspaper & radio owners contacted FCC their copy machines and phones jammed. FCC didn't mind, they were on a Mission.
FCC: changed the rules to accommodate big media, who just happen to be Big Donors. --To get FCC "approval" to rip down firewall between media ownership in a community --to bloat up --own TWO TV stations (i.e. in Los Angeles) + radio + newspaper + cable, etc, etc, etc. CBS --and the other media hogs, got the rules yanked, they got to buy More media in a single community.
Pay-back for the "favor"? They DON'T examine what the current Occupant has done. --They DON'T dig into claims of "WMD in Iraq" --they DON'T examine sinkhole Iraq. On the eve of election --in which their patrons could loose control: they DON'T rock his boat --DON'T examine his incompetence --dealing with countries that HAVE intention to produce nuclear weapons --DON'T look at massive, life-threatening amount of money those people have WASTED.
SHAME on you CBS --FCC --Congress --Oval Office Occupant.
-If you get to the Poll and it has electronic "vote" machine: demand a paper recipt --or a paper ballot. If poll workers refuse to give either one: You have legal right to demand "Provisional" ballot

Republicans: curious definition of "security" --if you missed investigative reporters' piece last week-end, October 27, 2006 on PBS: "Nice Work if You Can Get It," it showed how Homeland Security Department has handled security --and over $700 million.
What did they do with the money...
Are You Making $450. a Day? How About $515.?
Republicans managing Homeland Security: they gave a sub-contract to a woman in San Diego to hire airport screeners. --Oh, but: no written contract. Oops: no background check on the woman who got the contract. What were her qualifications? She is a travel agent. She is also: a member of an Evangelical church, in Florida. Oops: TSA people kept giving her money --until they handed her $24 million bucks --our money. --No back-up paperwork to justifiy expenses. --Not even "thousands" for cellphones --no documentation on cash withdrawals or on anything else. Result? Auditors determined: $15 million was not justified/overpaid.
Remember when we heard airport screeners weren't screened --no background checks, convicted felons, some on parole? Remember: when it was reported they hadn't been paid, some for as long as six months? Now: we know why. If you are Protestant, Jewish --atheist, any other religion: you can't get a government contract from This Administration?
Is your Congressmember part of the waste, fraud, abuse?
Reporters did a series of investigations, how our money was spent, what security we got for it, you can read each part of the series: High Price of Homeland Security
TSA? They refused to supply papers requested by reporters under Freedom of Information Act. Reporters got the information anyway: the woman got fabulous house, $24 million, $270,000. "pension" --Americans got? Screwed. If you watch the tape: you will see head of TSA --he asked the reporters not to do the story, basically give them 'a break' on handing out $741 million without any proof of how the money was spent.... Would that fly were you work? MOST bosses: don't like it when employees make unnecessary phonecalls.
With "security" like this, I now believe the only reason the country hasn't been attacked again: only because nobody has tried anything since Sept. 11. The money these people have wasted is DIZgusting.
--For $700 Million: ALL of us could have had $1 million health insurance coverage --with $400 million balance: every hospital in the US could have been fully staffed, equipped and paid.
Thanks on the "security" Rep. Boehner. --Where's our security --Where's protection for Pages --Where's our $700 Million --Where's bin Laden? Too busy hoping around to golf courses with your pal Tom Delay? This guy --what anyone would call "leader"???
-Ohio: can't we do better than him?
Three-year old warnings about Foley bothering Pages, $8 Trillion debt next two generations will have to pay off, tax cut for the wealthiest 1%, but no Minimum Wage increase--tried to cut military's benefits IN THE MIDDLE OF WAR --incompetence in Iraq, at home.
-If Democrats are in majority of the House: Mr. Boehner will not be in charge of our money or anything else.
We HAVE to have better than this --Tuesday: Please Vote
-If you give your vote to a Republican: then you will be rewarding that Party for appalling waste and for deaths. -There Has to be consequences for the things they have done: Please vote for anyone but Republicans.
-Buy a local newspaper this week --at least twice, ask your friends to do the same; they are looking out for us, reward them, newspapers are hurting.

Who shipped Americans' National Guard --to other side of the world for --what was the reason?
A person who chooses to have war is responsible --for consequences --faulty equipment --flimsy transport --helicopters that crash --inadequate water, Kevlar vests, night goggles, bullets, weapons, translators, supplies, maps --protection of troops, civilians, infrastructure, homes, bridges, roads, electricity --destruction of schools, religious houses, families --death --world's contempt, hatred --massive theft --chaos.
Oval Office occupant claims: we "should blame [him]" for the war --so what's he whining about? We DO blame him for Iraq --and so does the Senator.
A woman flying home from Iraq, feeling bad about the soldiers, took out her camera --photographed soldiers going home. She gave her pictures to her newspaper, which published them. Then: she got fired. Why? Pentagoons: didn't like her pictures --showing utmost respect for soldiers --each in a coffin meticulously draped with US flag. --People "running" Iraq invasion and Pentagoons: don't want Americans to see any thing that reveals results --showing how poorly they do their job. --They banned photographers from Day One at Dover airport runway, as coffins off-loaded. Why? Excuse: "that's up to family members of the dead." --Yet no military family has denied permission to reporter or photographer to be at the airport. Pictures of tortured, humiliated Iraq prisoners? Ex Chief of the Joints Meyers --sat on those pictures for eight weeks --until he couldn't prevent media from publishing.
Oval Office occupant: not attended one military funeral. Wives, parents, family members of dead soldiers and marines brought into the White House --calls them "mommy." --Respectful? --Something to admire?
After September 11 attack on the US --advice we got? "Just shop --just live normally." In other words:
'don't make sacrifices' and 'DON'T stop spending your money' --don't pay any attention to what we are doing --to 'aid' our benefactors and giant corporations.' How did 'shop till you drop' --help wives, who suddenly found out "National Guard" meant some other nation?
He and the people he hired to run invasion and occupation of Iraq: don't have a Plan --how to get out.
His choice --civilian who runs Defense Dept: has no military --strategy --tactical --aerial knowledge or experience. He is equipped with massive quantity of: arrogance. He told Generals any who read prepared papers on How to Handle the Peace: would be fired. Now THERE was a Plan. Anyone in military who stands up to him --tries to argue facts with him: finds their career --"altered" --or over. So "brilliant": orderded strikes --TWO wedding parties --slaughtered. --You forgot?
These are the people who paid a liar and bank thief: $350,000 per MONTH --for over a year --to hear? --What they wanted to hear --whispered in their ears. What did we get for the money? Fake facts. CIA: warned them he couldn't be trusted --before he was "hired." --But They didn't mind spending --our money on a liar --on contracts of former employer of President of Vice, violating federal law on no-compete and no-bid --on mercenaries.
These people claim they don't like welfare. --Yet wrote a "drug" bill to give billions in aide to drug makers --to oil companies --to airlines --to coal producers --to insurance, credit card and bank corporations --anyone who ever 'donated' to their election campaigns.
Those people: don't have a problem with CEOs making Millions --but don't want Minimum Wage raise. How is everyone else supposed to pay bills --survive?
They claim to want smaller government: blew a $8 TRILLION hole in our Treasury. --Who will be paying that debt --after they blow town?
--These people howling about a Senator's disgust: Gave out 38,000 oil contracts to dig for oil in nation's parks to pals.
They refused to join the world to cut pollution. They made it harder for struggling families to declare bankruptcy. They gave themselves raises and pension increases --every year. Did you get $3,000. more a year --six years in a row?
How does all that compare --hmmm...to a badly-worded slam of what they have Actually done --military deaths, massive debt, Iraq chaos --655,000 deaths --blood --destruction --two countries threatening to build nuclear weapons --world's disrespect, contempt. Are we better off? --Are you wealthy now? Do You work less hours now? Are You, your family --safer now? --Is the world more stable? WHO should apologize?
-Vote Tuesday --for anyone but Republicans, unless you want More of the same
-Offer: Give senior adults a ride to the polls to vote
-Contact: your local Registrar of Voters, your local City Council Representative and local Democratic Party office --request that they have monitors and lawyers at Every polling place --to prevent anyone with fake creditials from entering the polling place --from altering vote totals --from "counting" votes --from evicting Poll workers and "counting" votes --or dumping ballots in the trash. --In case you are one of rare people who doesn't know: Republicans tossed ballots into the trash, "forgot" to count thousands of ballots --in Florida --throughout Southern states.
Do Not Forget: In New Mexico, 2004 "election": the person occupying the Oval Office "received" 58,000 more votes than there are registered voters. --Same in Ohio, Florida, many states and districts with heavily-Democratic registered voters --Reported by US Census Bureau and by GAO for Congress. If such dirty tricks worked twice: why wouldn't he try them again?

"I will have Republican majority in the Senate and Republican majority in the House after this election." Then-- Smirk.The same smug face --election night 2004 --before the votes were counted. HE IS UP TO SOMETHING.
My instincts tell me: he's going to pull something --I don't know what --Yet. THREE times can NOT be a charm. You MUST get: Absentee Ballot --Do NOT risk voting on electronic vote machine. Not even if they offer you a Notarized paper recipt.
To Vote by Absentee Ballot:
-Google your City's name - then add "dot gov"
-When you are on local government's page: elections is on front page of most --if it isn't >Look for "election" or "registration" "ballot" "polling place" --something like that
-Read Rules on getting/qualifying for Absentee Ballot --very carefully
--you may also be able to request Absentee Ballot by phone
-Some require written request for Absentee Ballot, etc., follow rules carefully --a mistake, missed deadline could mean: not voting
-When you recive the ballot: fill it out promptly, return it as instructed --some will only accept by snail mail, some require send to specific address --by a certain date, follow rules carefully and fast.
Look around --your neighborhood, local areas --see if any senior adult needs an Absentee ballot, offer to help NOW. Only few more days until Absentee Ballot deadline.
I have Very good instincts, good ideas --but I'm clueless: HOW --WHAT he intends to do, but Believe it: that Smirk means He IS going to steal the ELECTION --he already knows it.
If anyone told me --in 2000 --that no-longer supreme court would be used to get inserted into Oval Office --I would have said: 'Get into Re-hab, you're Crazy.'
--If you don't know: in 2004 --in districts with registered Democrats --in Ohio --Florida --South, didn't have enough Polling Places --broken voting equipment; retired and ex FBI agents went into polling areas: told workers there was "red threat alert" --ordered the workers to leave and "counted" the votes. --Proof? At 8 pm EST: all three TV networks reported receiving angry calls from the White House --demanding they report that Ohio had won him the election. --People in Ohio stood to vote in the rain until 4 am --so HOW did they "know" Ohio would 'go Republican'?
US Census Bureau and GAO filed reports: in many heavily-registered Democratic districts the Occupant WON. --In one district of New Mexico: he "won" by 58,000 MORE votes than registered voters of both parties.
I have written about electronic "vote" machines since last year --begged people to contact local elction officals to DUMP those machines --vote can EASILY be changed.
-Get Absentee Ballot yourself or
-Fill out Absentee Ballot on-line: here
-Ask around: see if anyone needs Help --to Get Absentee Balllot
-Send e-mail: to Democratic Party --demand they provide election monitors and attorneys at Polling places, prevent fraud, challenge irregularities in vulnerable districts --like Tennessee --Missouri --Ohio --Virginia --Florida
We can Not have universal medical insurance --world's respect --jobs, prosperous country --peace --if that person has Republican majority in Congress after this election....
UPDATE: Goverment announced economy "grew" 1.6%. If Occupant's 'trickle down' tax cuts for the wealthiest is "working": where is the growth? --Where is the money? Wage-workers aren't doing better.
I suspect figures on growth and on unemployment have been manipulated past six years. When unemployment insurance runs out: workers are dropped from the rolls --no longer counted --not the same as dropped for getting a job. The people who hijacked Republican Party: don't care.
They also don't seem to be smart enough to figure out: if they ship production of goods/services out of the country --to "improve" their bottom line, who will be able to buy IN the US? They don't care about that either.
This Administration: has to borrow billions every week, to keep the war and the country going. I believe we are in for very rough times. One day: the bills will HAVE to be paid. There's Good reasons: foreclosure rate of recent home purchases is at 76%. Foreclosure: like the canary in the mine. --It will kill the economy, which could cause other things to fall --sharply.
-Pay Yourself FIRST: You worked for it --Save Your Money
-When you get paid: take 25% off the 'top' --BEFORE you pay bills, mortgage, buy things
-Put into savings account: if you don't have a savings account --keep it simple, go to closest bank, just open account, put in the money. --Make it a deadline --to open an account THIS week --by next Friday
-Set another deadline: Find, open a ROTH-IRA account. Give yourself rigid deadline: within two weeks. Money you put into a ROTH: means you won't have to pay tax on it next year. You are allowed to stash several thousand dollars into a ROTH each year, but you only have two months, until December 30, of this year
-Save: BEFORE you buy things --go out to dinner, etc.
-Look at every area to save/cut back: you will be happy later on --when everyone else is panicing.
-Halloween: Instead of handing out candy, with white sugar which is toxic & addictive, hand out new pennies --get a few rolls. --3 to 10-year olds don't need candy.
-Make coffee at home, take to-go in insulated cup --kick the $20. -30. a week Starbuck habit. One pound of organic (no pesticide) quality coffee costs $8., lasts two weeks. Put the average difference, $42. in the bank.
-Every week: buy a few canned goods, stash away for future.

You were hired, for obscene amount of money, to give crash-course to one student on your specialty: Russia.
Then you were hired by federal government to work in national security, as advisor.
Given: two month's 'heads up' notice --that people who hate Americans wanted to hijack planes, crash them into buildings, You: shoved the notice under your ex student's nose. The End.
You failed to even call FBI, Air Force, NTSB, Pentagoons, NORAD, Coast Guard, Customs --anyone??? --to warn: 'Watch for the unusual / Follow procedures strictly / Use instincts / Watch Out.'
You did not advise.
You did not search, read, look for pattern, past assessments -experience -knowledge of previous Administrations. You asked about nothing of any. You evidenced no arming of questions / answers of the knowledgeable.
You did not ask anyone in any other country if they knew of any one, any plans --any inelligence, hatred chatter by anyone.
You failed to intervene: when 182 Saudi Arabian nationals around the country were picked up --assembled onto one plane --allowed to fly out of the country, only plane allowed into US airspace two days after the country was attacked. --Over the objections of FBI, which demanded time and access to question them before they left the country.
You did not determine: how/why FBI came to have an informant living with two of the Saudi hijackers in the months before attack. You did not ask for investigation --CIA inquiry --Congress to hold even closed-door hearings. --You did not require divulgence: What FBI knew, when they knew it, how much informant was paid; what happened to him. You asked no questions, you gained no knowledge.
Having failed at the job after attack on the country September 11, 2001, which had nothing whatever to do with your "specialty" Russia: you received promotion.

Are you standing on "moral" ground when you call for others to shun nuclear weapons? --When Pentagoons have created thousands of them, and you well know it....
Whenever your mouth is open: the multi-edited smooth copy written by the ad agency writers, rolls off your honed serpentine tongue. --But why? By the time the puppet-masters hoist you before cameras to perform: those who scrutinze --already know, newest version of the dance. --You don't answer, admit, acknowledge --or apologize. So whyever do you bother? --We already know what you're going to say --Please: STOP polluting Sunday morning political programs. --It's a waste of our air-waves.
You imagine that you work for the person occupying OUR Oval Office. You are wrong, You do not understand the job. You: serve at the pleasure of Americans --us, we who pay the price --pay your salary --your perks --your meals --your jet fuel bills --your long-distance calls to learn "nothing."

"The two Democrats, Jonathan Adelstein and Michael Copps, were infuriated that the Justice Department's antitrust division cleared the deal on Wednesday without any conditions, and they argued the FCC should conduct a more rigorous review."
Texans don't give a damn about You
IF: owners of SBC get control of AT&T --they WILL have a monoply on phone service in the US. Want to go back to No choice? Repubicans already used FCC --to help six mega-corps to control ALL our TV networks. Want to stop them --from controlling ALL telephone service?
There is Still Time: Send e-mail to FCC --tell them "Vote NO" on merger.
See this page - left margin to: FCC link
Power, Privacy, Rights on the line: Some good ol' boys from Texas bought what was once the finest corporation in the country --Pac Bell. They changed it, wow did they change it.
They steam-rolled long-time smart employees, ground out each word allowed to say; nickel & dimed every single part of the business. They changed the name, the ethics, the trust, the quality. Their greed: leeks out of every thing they do. They are pals: of Oval Office occupant.
Today: they get approval --to become more powerful than any other hogs sucking at any trough --unless you stop them. They need Justice Department and your silence to take over AT&T.
If you do nothing: good luck having privacy, fighting a wrong bill, getting attention from your rep in Congress.
--AT&T will be printing money --throwing so much money at Your rep: You won't count.
Write to your Senators, your rep in the House --NOW. Demand stop to the deal --SBC take-over of AT&T. See: links left margin this page to find yours, just enter your zip code.
If rumors are true: they paid the occupant $990 million bucks --for an introduction to royal house of Saud --to get the telephone rights to wire Saudi Arabia.
Stop them NOW --before they get any bigger --any greedier --any more powerful.
Don't forget: they didn't have a problem --turned over phone records --even WITHOUT court order. They play nice --with their pals.
Tomorrow is Too Late: send e-mail NOW.

Ex exterminator Tom Delay, his associates and White House occupant: stepped into government to get money --for themselves, redraw district lines to keep their jobs and use others to fly to distant golf courses, first class. They and their pals live high on the hog, ignore welfare and common good of everyone else --that voted for them to look out for Americans.
Former cockroach hunter Delay, Republican: will stand trial soon, for getting money from 27 Texas corporations--violating Texas law that has stood for 106 years--directing it to RNC in Washington, then having it distributed to Texas Republicans --to keep a Republican majority in the House of Representatives. The donations went to Washington as "soft money" --back to Texas as "hard money" --legal to distribute, after it was 'laundered.'
Lobbyist Jack Abramoff, his pal, 'contributed' to Delay, his wife, his daughter: lavish trips, suites, dinners, salary and gifts totaling millions of the $66 million they got from ripping off four Indian tribes. Pal Abramoff pled guilty, cooperating, going to prison for six years.
Before his Party forced him to resign
Republican Delay threatened: if lobbyist firms hired Democrats --any Democrat to work in their firms, they would not get any bills they wanted passed. On indictment he grinned and declared: "this is just partisan politics." Does Texas have stupid prosecutors --arrest and indict without evidence???
So many Republicans in trouble, if you aren't from Texas or aren't sure which one is Delay: when he forced a vote of the Texas legislature that was going to redraw district lines, to send six more Republicans to House of Representatives, Democrats, to avoid the vote they believed was illegal, left the state, stayed in a motel until deadline passed. Delay: used Homeland Security Dept. --and laws, to send Marshalls and a jet to go get the Democrats, costing thousands and violating laws.
Delay: the one who, as Party Whip, shoved the grotesque Drug Bill --welfare for drug-makers--on American senior adults --and on you, to pay the bill; deepened Treasury debt, un-born great-grandchildren will still be paying it off; threatened members of his own Party --if they didn't do what he wanted.
Grinning Delay: orchestrated the vote that stole our rights: "Patriot" Act. --Government can spy on you --snoop on your bank records, phone calls, e-mail --without a court's approval or warrant, thanks to fat-cat Republican Tom Delay. No-longer supreme court: told the White House to shove it --to get approval from Congress to do that. Good little Republicans toed the line, tried to craft a Bill, even retroactive, to give authority to White House occupant to spy on you, but Occupant: doesn't want to recognize Congress's authority, he wants: sole authority --without interference. There's a name for that: it's called "dictatorship."
What is Tom Delay doing while he waits for his trial to begin? "Religious" leaders --of mega churches --pay Delay to speak to mega groups? --To bring in mega donations? Aren't worshipers TIRED of giving, but never getting anything back but anti-spirit?
Many Texans: voted for the person they most wanted to have a beer with --for president, for ex cockroach hunter Delay and many other Republicans. Apparently they have decided: it's time for those people to 'step off' --don't want any more of those 'partisan' politics --starting with Texas governor's office.
Ranchers --farmers --working class, all kinds of Republicans and Democrats in Texas: lining up to register so they can vote for 'None of the Above' and choose Independent: Kinky Friedman --to handle the governor's office for them. They have way had enough of Republicans.
Kinky Friedman: plans and goals loaded with common sense --to look out for all. He doesn't have consultants, smooth patter, glib phrases or much money. Does have: contempt for status quo and career politicians. He is smart, single, musical, funny, mature, rather crude, wise --and pissed off. Sound like a typical politician?
How bad is Friedman: he wants a moment of silence and the Ten Commandments --in schools. He wants quality education, Peace Core-type program for teaching and renewable energy.
Remedies for Republican Arrogance, Indifference
Someone has to govern --we may as well choose well --this time --all over the country.
People in all fifty states need to care what happens to Independent Friedman, IF we are going to take back this country.
Send a donation to Kinky Friedman, even $10. is $10. more than Republican Party will be giving him.
Read his platform, goals: Independent Friedman
Friedman said. "I think the soul of Texas is riding on this campaign."

Are you sure?
Someone's daughter got up one morning, got dressed, went to school: got raped at gunpoint, then got shot dead. Will never come home. Bailey, Colorado
Daughters and sons sat together in a small schoolroom drawing pictures --for the last time: a man with a semi-automatic weapon, hundreds of bullets and a diseased mind entered the school. He filled Twelve small girls with bullets --five shot until they died, one child had 20 bullets in her 7-year old body. Shot dead, One begged...
Only happens to other people's children --poor, middle-class children? A child --on the playground --on the street --walking home from school --in a car on the highway, with parents --is shot dead --in every city in the US --every day.
Can government make you sick? It can kill you.
US government believes: it has the right to put lead into Great Lakes --poisoning drinking water, endangering wildlife, fish, eco-system, boaters. lead into Great Lakes
Members of Congress: get campaign donations from religious groups that believe in the right to life, hell: who doesn't believe in the right to live.
While you are busy working --shopping --focusing on yourself, your family, your friends: your representative in Congress has been busy --helping members of National Rifle Association keep their perceived right --to have semi-automatic weapons.
Members of Congress, like the Speaker for the majority Party Dennis Hastert, disgraced ex Rep. Tom Delay, other extremists, believe in: money. --They also get donations from: NRA --which believes their members have Right to use semi-automatic weapons . --Deer hunters --Real hunters: use semi-automatic--rapid-fire-- weapons to kill prey for dinner? Members of Congress are quietly busy helping them --keep their "right."
Did those children --thousands every year, die for a cause? Well...members of Congress like money, Now they have more of it --from both sides --to run more campaigns to stay in office....
While everyone is watching Republican Party disgrace themselves on other issues: they are trying to change gun laws --quietly....
England, Austraila: don't have 15,000 murders every year --people slaughtering children, wives, strangers. --They also don't have right-to-gun laws --or government 'over-running people' even though citizens aren't armed --the stupidest argument of all.
Nature demands justice...is it an "accident" Charlton Heston, ex president of NRA, is dying --a slow death?
Which side are you on?
You think --there is some Good Reason country is filled with semi-automatic weapons --children have a right to live --or Your representative should have more money or more ethics?
Here's An Idea
If you believe you, family, children have a right to live: supposing 'right to guns' people keep their guns, but ALL bullets: only available at police station
-ANY bullets, any amount: fill out a request form
-Two police officers have to examine and Approve
-Dispense the bullets
-Keep part of the profit --to hire more police
-Permanent record: who got which bullets
-Amnesty Period: turn in ALL bullets; bullets found/not registered: special jail time/added to a sentence
Local Police: can verify permit, legality, mental state. Anyone else who sells bullets: gets long prison term. Period. Could this be done in your community? Ask your mayor, your local representative. That phone call could start the process --and save a child you know, or your life.
What do You care about? If you actually really Truly believe in the Right to life, your inaction --so far, says otherwise.
-LOOK: at the links in left margin this page, click on "Senate" --"House of Representatives"
-Enter your zip code --you'll get your rep's Home Page
-SEND a message: Demand end to semi-automatic weapons --easy access to guns
or: outlaw bullets except by local police.
-Believe it: only 100 sincere letters from voters will sway your representative
Can you ask 99 friends, neighbors, co-workers, PTA members, people waiting in line at Post Office -grocery store to write to representative?
You want life? DEMAND Congress get off their butts, Pay attention to YOU, to children
Can't be bothered to write, send e-mail? DON'T moan, cry --show up --at the next funeral. Hell, the next funeral: might be for you.

Oval Office "administration" has done things --many secret, that will affect us --for decades. Believe It: government way not going to help or care if you are too tired, too ill to work and have no money. You have to set aside Serious chunks of money, in your own account --each year --each month --end of each week --starting now --Pay YOU First. Buying expensive gifts NOT going to help. But: Giving summer fruit, veggies --out of season, will not take a bite out of your future.
Remember --two years ago --the stuff, the tech toys you Had to buy for Them, all those others --now tech trash, still lingering on the Debt Card bill, but long since in the landfill? Do you need to repeat the dance to remember the feeling --of dread? Is More Stuff -Another piece of tech trash Really worth your future?
It does not have to be that way. Nobody "needs" more objects --we are a country crammed FULL of Stuff. There IS another way --and It is Still summer...how heavenly would it be to deliver a gift --only to those who Really matter, of the Best of Summer --for winter treat. All kinds of fruit --available now, would be much sweeter, special in the middle of winter's cold...strawberries --blackberries -blue berries -figs, dates... ripe juicy peaches.... You don't need to make jam -bake -or cook anything: just freeze, then put into a glass jar (--left-over from peanut butter, mayo, or pickles and small size jars)...olive oil, with a few raspberries dropped in...wrapped simply, ribbon round the lid: --perfect size --right color --rejected by No One!
Stroll through weekly farmer's market will reveal all that is in season now, sorely missed in December. Simplest form is best, but lots of cookbooks, on-line recipe sites can give more complex ideas, but avoid recipes that include white sugar, fats, artificial chemicals. Nothing is as zingy, heavenly as perfectly ripe unadorned blackberries...on buckwheat pancakes --while rain, wind pounds life outside.
To Freeze Fruit, Berries:
- Use any flat surface, such as cake pan -pie plate -stiff cardboard -aluminum tray
- Cover surface with paper towel or wax paper
- Spread out berries -so none touch
- Place in freezer -small berries will harden within two hours
- Glass Jar, lid: as jar becomes available thoroughly wash, including inside lid; thoroughly dry
- Place fruit inside jar loosely -without packing, screw lid tightly; replace in the freezer
- Sheet of Labels, wide-nib pen, such as caligraphy pen from art store, clear tape
- Write: name of each fruit, possibly date of purchase, and "From"
- Don't add label to the jar -until just before delivery or: add label first, then cover with tape (to keep the ink from smearing when moist)
- Ribbon: while doing other errands during next few months, stop in at a fabric store and purchase few yards of satin or gros grain ribbon, to place around each lid --you're done!
NOTE: Do NOT freeze Tomato: never ever even chill --cold destroys the 47 enzymes in tomato, which turns it to garbage -no reason to eat; but using summer tomatoes to make Tomato Sauce, with fresh basil, That is a very good idea; could be used on wheat pizza dough, as soup, on any pasta shape; on bagels, topped with cheese -under broiler.
NOTE: Use glass jar --no not NOT plastic. Why NO Plastic: will not freeze; how long until plastic --in landfill breaks down? Try: 1,000 years --or never. Plastic: made from petroleum --not helpful to the planet.
Or: you could do the usual --buy more stuff, more tech toys --for people who's last names you hardly know --they will take you in --take care of you --when you have no home, no income --in your 70's, 80's --right? Ask a senior adult -a grandparent, if you're lucky enough to have one, what life is like living on Social Security...how many trips, treats, restaurant meals....
If you absolutely Positively Hafta buy an Object:
-Look around, now, while everyone is outta town, leaving the shops empty --what's on sale --bargain from season, reduced to insignificant cost...books...wool scarf, unusual shirt, tennis balls
-Start checking in at charity shops: not only can you find good bargains, toys, books and such, but designers, bankrupt store owners and unusual others (such as brides who received 'white elephants') donate un-used/new merchandise to charity and thrift shops for the tax write off. Gift Idea for a family or wedding gift: assemble all the parts for a picnic basket.
All of which will not make Serious dings in: Your Plan to Save for Your Future. Some day: you will be too tired to work. If you take care of that Future person today, Future person will thank you.
No matter what happens in November --how many right-wingers still in Congress after November election: Part of having Healthy life is having enough money to take care of yourself. That is harder to do, much more important when right-wing Republican holds nearly every seat. The chief Whack-job will still whine about secrets, swipe rights, invade privacy, tell only part of the truth and help his pals do the same, But: Eventually he'll blow outta DC, leaving the rest of us to restore shredded reputation, Bill of Rights, Treasury, ify future. We have to get through two and a half more years --of his imperial tyranny, appalling illiteracy, endangering policies, indifference to middle -working class Americans --those who help his pals get wealthier, but aren't in the country to pick crops. He has done things that will make future difficult for the individual --while helping corporations and his pals. You must begin doing defensive things --look out for yourself, despite his ugly plans, changes of law.
But: Next year could be OK for you...if you have a plan, stick to it weekly, pick the best of summer and ignore Oval Office occupant's pals' pressure to Buy More Stuff.
Get a wire shopping cart basket --get a ROTH-IRA pension account --sign up for any work-available pension plan, sock away all the goodies.
You can enjoy all the season's best --no fear factor, no guilt, no fire alarms, no Wal-Mart, no mauling, no crowds, no left-over debt --no landfill filler, for stress-free tasty season. Bon Apetite!`

The Goo Ol' oily Boys occupying the White House: like to blend their politics with oil, when they want money, with religion when they want votes and cash. They don't gotta prob with generals, decked out in full regalia, banging on church pulpits, spewing whatever --if gets them results they like. They do gotta prob with religious leaders who don't tow their line --or who speak their own mind --against them.
This being the Land of the Free --they use their power, might, freedom --to launch --the IRS on a church in Pasadena, California which had a visiting priest who made the "mistake" of speaking about freedom --during 2004 election. Seems the priest, the church, the worshipers weren't on the, uh, 'right' side of that "election" --so IRS is eyeballing (read: threatening to revoke Catholic church's tax-exempt status) them.
Now you can take the view that politics from the pulpit ain't kosher. Okay. Let's say the Gooey Boys have a point --and to sic (--sicking?) IRS on the church is fair game. If so: Please account for Republican tool Ken Melman. Just PRECISELY where has he been, say last 20 Sundays? Well, if you aren't socially well-connected, not a Major Republican donor, don't have access to "genius" Rove's datebook, here's a hint: he's on the road --every Sunday. What's he doing? He's looking for a few of the foolish.
Jewish Republican tool Ken Melman is in church --any black --any Latino church that will have him. What's he doing? He's pitching --Republican politics --on the Join Us tour, to any worshipers willing to be fooled a third time. He only needs a few --to peal off a few dozen from each church, to punch up voter rolls with people of color....
EXCUUUSE me: WHY is THAT okay? WHERE is IRS --WHY aren't they going after EVERY church in which Melman pops his weenie little pointed head?
Connected to spirit: good for your health. Connected to Republican Party: raising Minimum Wage would "harm" them --ain't gonna happen; they want to eject all Mexicans in the US who aren't citizens--good luck on getting any fresh fruit, vegetables--to "protect" the rest of us. They like war, lobbyists with trunks of cash, midnight raids on US Treasury for "special" projects, torture, signing statements ---that disavow bills, making personal wealth off government, invading privacy--without court 'snooping'--massive debt --stupid public school children, telling women what to do with their body --packing courts with ideologs --bloated incompetent departments, weapons that don't work, slashing veteran benefits --building fences, lots and lots of fences, checking your shoes while ignoring the cargo underfoot in airplanes --borrowing money --being world bullies --bloated Pentagon --pretending global-warming a mystery --screwing with gas price and the status quo.

"You know that woman Anne? She's blond and single and maybe someone will introduce her to OJ." --David Letterman.
What does it say about a Party that has a member: so needy, so Desperate for attention that her idea of appropriate behavior is to attack 9-11 widows?
She caused the unnecessary death of trees to entomb demented thoughts in paper: She attacked four women, each of whom was married to a man murdered September 11. She "feels" they shouldn't use murder "to make political statements." Uhm...isn't that Precisely what she's doing? The women should be silent even though their husbands were part of mass murder and want to know why; shouldn't ask, but she Doesn't wonder or even have a somebody to mourn...? Why is it OK for her put down the women? Why is she using the grief and the outrage those women feel to get herself on TV to criticize them?
So: Don't rail that initial survivors of the Tower crashes were given fatally bad instructions, to go back up to offices and wait because firefighters were not informed to evacuate --worthless radio communication...mis-matched frequences; equipment Known to be inadequate years before September 11 attack, but not corrected, by indifferent Congress, indifferent to pleas for budget to correct the problems. Corrected now so police, firefighters, paramedics and ERs, in cities all over the US, can talk to each other on same frequency? Nope.
If your mate was murdered: you are not, according to Anne-thrax, supposed to question it, don't ask; don't demand answers, better protection, preparation, technology, training to prevent it happening again??? Don't be sad? Don't protest? Don't express anger??? Don't Ask What government employees knew, When they knew it??? Hmmm...so she must be Plenty sore, livid, crazed at outspoken heads, members of the committee which investigated the attack and presented recommendations to Congress? Hmmm...how come she didn't attack THEM? Too much Evidence too much for the poor dear?
Ah course, there is the other bit: if ol' Anney-poo attacked the Nine-Eleven Commission she would have had to use actual facts...then WHO would have booked her, how could she get her bones on camera, BS-oriented media being what it is, with it's infantile focus --what morning-drivel circus would give her any time? Did you catch the reptilian sneer as she whined/pretended she was being 'attacked'? Gag us with a spoon. Where's the barf bags....
Well, Poor scrawny thing. Maybe: she's upset there's little chance she could be a widow --cuz nobody will even date her? Listen Up, Guys: IF you are a True Patriot: give her some hope and Shut Her the hell up. Volunteer: Take the hungry beast out --jamb a corndog, some half-cooked pork, speed-slaughtered cheap beef --cram a pie into the pie-hole, let Nature go to work. The world has serious problems to deal with without a skrawny chicken plucking at the edges. Another black mark for Republican Party.
-Hey Media: STOP polluting our airwaves, Stop pandering to right-wing whackos, STOP giving Anne-thrax air time; Producers: DO NOT BOOK HER
-Don't buy the chicken's book
-Register to Vote
-Make sure everyone in your circle is registered; get Registration forms, free, at the Post Office

-Call your local Registrar of Voters: DEMAND electronic voting machines
be removed, totally replaced either with Ink Dot machines or with chad-type ballot machines
Remember: over Three MILLION votes were NOT counted in 2004 "election" because, somehow, the governor of duh, Florida happened to put decades-long voters onto "Felon" rolls --Democratic-voting voters, who happened to be black; other ballots were put straight into the trash so they would not have to use valuable time counting them; other "mis-guided" voters had their votes 'corrected' with electronic voting machine easily-manipulated software manipulated, "for" Ohio voters.

FBI? They had an informant --living with two of the hijackers --several months before the attack. Field agents sent reports --on students who didn't want to learn how to land; requests for court order to examine suspicious people, computers; one sent over 70 e-mail requesting permission to pick up, question suspicious foreigner. FBI management: denied permission or ignored all.
One brilliant person --in FBI --connected all the dots of coordinated terrorist organization --long before US attack: forced out of FBI on minor infraction, management jealous, annoyed at his intelligence; John O'Neal subsequently took job: head of Security -World Trade Center, New York; died while working, September 11.
Occupant went to New York, several days later, told mourning firefighters, police, grieving new orphans, widows, parents and the country: US government would strike those who attacked us. Three years, five months and several billion dollars later: nobody involved in the attack tried, arrested or even caught. The rest of the world, however, despises, fears, loathes us. Does that cause you to feel "safe" --are you safe?
In case they hadn't read a newspaper, watched TV, heard weather report, White House administration was given written and video notice that a really big hurricane, worst hurricane ever, was headed to Gulf Coast states. But "genius" puppeteer was on vacation; President of Vice: off fishing; Occupant: on vacation, as usual. The thirteenth person offered job of heading up nation's security: got on a plane --in the opposite direction, the day hurricane struck; then declared media coverage of damage, effect, devastation, after-affect was "over-blown, exaggerated." Occupant? Not watching any TV, so his staff prepared a tape --what happened to four of the 50 states he swore to protect.
He watched the tape --while survivors rescued off roofs, trudged through 5' high water sludge and debris to arrive at 'refuge' center --no water, food, hygiene facilities, medical care or even any cots. Pentagon nabs $420 billion bucks every year, but couldn't manage to spare any of it or use any Black Hawks or ordinary helicopters to air drop water or MREs to desperate survivors. That is our money. Would you like to sit in extreme heat, surrounded by filth --without water or food --for days? --A good thing for children?
Five entire days later: Occupant shambled on down to New Orleans to pat fed people on the back for "heck of a job." Later: his PR people grabbed available generators --so he could make a 'feel good' speech with attractive background lit up, seen by no one in the four states --without electricity, shelter or TVs.
Twelve months later: survivors have one foot 'at home' --one foot in relocation cities, rooted nowhere as they wait...for facts, answers, master plan, decisions, promised funds to rebuild, as thousands of gallons of water bubbles away daily out of broken pipes. They wait for electricity, just like Iraqis.... Only unlike Iraq: schools, hospitals, libraries --roads, pipes, pumps, levies haven't been repaired.
Occupant: took "full responsibility" for fed failure to get off their collective butts --get anything in gear. --Ya so, what's changed? --What's his penalty --what cost to him?
Where is Osama? Pentagon: headed by civilian, Donald Rumsfeld, chosen by Occupant, who has no military experience, ordered generals NOT to read After-War plans for Iraq, didn't have a problem with US military violating Geneva Conventions --or with prisoners standing for 12 hours a day; over-sees vast bloated top-heavy bureaucracy, that receives $420 Billion annually; protects no one but themselves, their budget; hasn't got Clue One how to secure peace in Iraq, protect US military or exit.
Occupant and his oil pals: used the military to attempt to loot Iraq --take its oil, while telling Americans, world: Iraq --"imminent threat" to this country. WHAT did Iraq or its leader have to do with September 11, 2001 attack on this country? Should our best, brightest die --to engorge some fat cats? Who should loose an eye --leg --hand --arm to enrich these people?
"Genius" puppeteer thinks, no doubt, that he is clever --for getting Oval Office occupant to blame Americans, at fault --for "addiction to oil." --Americans use oil instead of??? Where is: alternative? What is Penta-goofs using to run their fake war? These people have been occupying White House nearly SIX Years --where is alternative fuel --ideas, budget, incentive, engineers, scientists --PLAN for alternative fuel?
Question: if he and his posse failed to prevent attack --on one month's notice;
failed to respond --before or after to a natural disaster --when they had five full days notice
do we need a third disaster --to get it: these people have admitted --can't/ won't/ don't know how to protect --defend --or even prepare?<>
Entire country, all Americans put in jeopardy by invading a country, angering vast numbers of people in other countries; has not secured ports or transportation or chemical plants or oil refineries or airport cargo --nor captured those responsible for the attack --after five years.
We DON'T need government to swipe rights granted in the Bill of Rights, regulate religion, invade privacy, determine 'acceptable' personal behavior. Protecting citizens is primary reason for government. --That is entire purpose, to do for us --for the common good, that which we can not do individually. --But these people?
As they make midnight raids on Treasury, slipping pork into bills that gets bacon shipped 'back home' but violate fiscal responsibility, Republican principles, ethics, decency and future generations' ability to live decent safe life: How many more have to die --before we ALL get it?
2,617 Americans: will not come back from Iraq
62,000 Americans: wounded, maimed, permanently injured
100,000+ Iraqis: perished since American invasion
Treasury: $8 TRILLION debt --and soaring
Republicans can spend money, but they can't protect, defend Any body --but themselves. Isn't two strikes enough --to count Occupant, his administration and his employees, his Party, his Republican supporters in Senate, in House of Representatives out?
-Republicans: not good for health
-Work with friends, neighbors and co-workers to Get electronic "vote" machines removed
