More GOOD News!

Operation Iraqi Liberation has liberated all those grateful flowers-and-candy Iraqis and is putting in a democratic style government. With a Constitution. Just like Afghanistan. Yippee!

Oh. wait. Afghanistan's constitution? Based on Islamic law. So converting to Christianity is not only prosecuteable, but may be punishable by . . . death.

Yep, can't wait for Iraq to be JUST AS FREE!!

Why are we in Iraq?

Two Years Before 9/11, Candidate Bush was Already Talking Privately About Attacking Iraq, According to His Former Ghost Writer

"He was thinking about invading Iraq in 1999," said author and journalist Mickey Herskowitz. "It was on his mind. He said to me: 'One of the keys to being seen as a great leader is to be seen as a commander-in-chief.' And he said, 'My father had all this political capital built up when he drove the Iraqis out of Kuwait and he wasted it.' He said, 'If I have a chance to invadeĀ·.if I had that much capital, I'm not going to waste it. I'm going to get everything passed that I want to get passed and I'm going to have a successful presidency." Herskowitz said that Bush expressed frustration at a lifetime as an underachiever in the shadow of an accomplished father. In aggressive military action, he saw the opportunity to emerge from his father's shadow. The moment, Herskowitz said, came in the wake of the September 11 attacks. "Suddenly, he's at 91 percent in the polls, and he'd barely crawled out of the bunker."


Spin THAT, fuckers.

Good News from Iraq

Sorry to get your hopes up. There isn't any. Rather, the little good news I have heard does not come anywhere near the amount of bad news.

Some claim it is because biased journalists only report the bad. I challenge anyone to report good news. I will take second-hand accounts, stories, anything. I will consider all good news and then weigh it against the copious amounts of bad news and see how it stacks up.

Wake up. It is not getting better.

Oh and desperate-for-attention troll? Go Cheney yourself. Did you even bother to read the post or go to ANY of the links? I didn't think so.

A word about the Oscars

As we all know Brokeback Mountain lost the nod to Crash. But Gay advocates are not worried, they know that there is nothing wrong with . . . coming in number 2.




Thanks Bill.

A Question for Republicans regarding IMPEACHMENT

I am sure you remember the issue about why Clinton was impeached -- even though it was seen as insignificant to about 70% of Americans, according to the polls at the time.

Republicans went through with impeachment anyway, because -- as we were repeatedly told -- it is critical to hold the President to a higher standard, and establish that no President is above the law.

OK, fine.

What makes a wilfull violation of a law important enough to impeach a Republican President?

In this Dubai Ports transaction, at least two provisions of a critical national security law were broken by Bush, and by several members of his administration. They freely and openly admit to the violation, and have offered absolutely no justification for breaking the law.

The Exon-Florio amendment to the Defense Production Act requires a 30-day review of all such transactions by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States. Then reviewed by the President. If the president agrees the deal should go forward...

A 1993, amendment requires, by law, that a mandatory 45-day investigation be conducted AFTER the 30-day review on any transaction that:
* Involves a corporation owned by a foriegn government
and
* Involves a national security concern (like, for instance the part of this contract that involves handling 40% of all military hardware and its corresponding classified information).

By a Bush executive order in 2003, codified in 31 CFR, Part 800, the Secretary of Defense sits on the Committee of Foreign Investment in the United States. Scott McClellan said that the Defense Department played a major part in the review. The deal was approved by, allegedly, a unanimous vote of the entire committee on February 13th. Yet, the other day, Rumsfeld and General Peter Pace both said they had just learned of the transaction over the past weekend - a week after approval was given. And Bush said he was unaware of it, as well.

These are all violations of an important national security law. Is that impeachable? Or, would Bush have to give a misleading answer to a irrelevant question about sex in a civil suit that got thrown out for lack of merit -- in order to be impeached? Is that what constitutes a "higher standard" and establishing that no President is above the law?

Just asking. You know, trying to figure out where the line is for these things.

Woof.

Open letter to 'pastor' Fister and other Christian homophobes

I am a male. I have a male friend. He is my best friend. I love him.

Does that make me gay?

No. So I get to go to heaven.

Having sex with him would make me gay, and keep me out of heaven because it is a sin?

So, if gays love other gays but don't have sex . . . do they get to go to heaven?

Perhaps you neo-con-nazi-christo-fascist-zombies need to be reminded that Jesus died for our sins. If we accept him as our savior, our sins are forgiven and we can enter heaven. That goes for ALL sins, including having sex.

Let he who is without sin throw the first butt-plug.
