West Virginia To Run Out Of Gas Friday

Posted by Frankie at 8/31/2005 09:54:00 PM

The great progressive state of West Virginia will have a lot less cars, pickup trucks, and ATVs on her country roads this Friday authorities warn:

At least two West Virginia counties have been scrambling to find enough fuel to run their emergency vehicles and public transportation systems following looming fuel shortages caused by Hurricane Katrina.

The Transit Authority in Huntington, which supplies fuel to its fleet of buses, ambulances for Cabell County Emergency Services and to the Cabell County Sheriff's Department, only has enough gasoline for police cruisers until Friday, Vickie Shaffer, TTA general manager, told The Herald-Dispatch for Wednesday's edition. Diesel fuel for buses and county ambulances would dwindle by the middle of next week. She said,
"What we have here in my opinion is an early indication the problem is bigger than we thought it would be. We may have an interruption in fuel, and we need to address that."
The problem could spread to consumer outlets, where the price of regular gasoline jumped 50 cents overnight in some areas from $2.59 a gallon to $3.09 on Wednesday.

Cabell County is not alone. Officials in Kanawha County also are facing short supplies of gasoline and diesel.

Gov. Joe "Republicrat" Manchin (~D) hopes to assist to ease any bottlenecks that may develop in the motor fuel supply lines to the state, spokeswoman Lara Ramsburg said Wednesday.
"We're working with (the West Virginia Oil Marketers And Grocers Association) to keep in contact with the local distributors to see what problems they're facing. The governor has also been in contact with the national companies."
I personally can attest to the price in Morgantown going up 35 cents in a day from $2.74 to $3.09. Tuesday night at around 10:30PM the local Sheetz gas station was packed with cars...

Disgusting Banner

Posted by Frankie at 8/31/2005 08:07:00 PM

As the POTUS Bush rushed to take some type of action, THREE DAYS AFTER Katrina made landfall for the second time. The official presidential website disgustingly photoshoped Bush with hurricane survivor and of course, an American flag. In the background is a satellite image of a hurricane and to the right of the flag are palm trees blowing in intense wind.

"Bush Don't Need To Be The President No More"

Posted by Frankie at 8/31/2005 05:34:00 PM

Anyone watching MSNBC? Holy crap, some unfortunate young man who just today got some water commented about a message to POTUS Bush:
"President Bush don't need to be the president no
Update, here is the transcript:
Robert, Biloxi, MS: "President Bush don't need to be the president no
more, because President Buch ain't doing his job. We got the whole coast line destroyed. I'm out here starving, hungry, I finally got me a bottle of water, I've been calling my mama."

Schuster: "Robert where do you live, I mean what's the problem right now? Where do you live?"

Robert: "I live on Gulfport Avenue, and I mean my apartment's still standing but I ain't got no hope. I want to leave. If I can get gas and leave, I mean.."

Schuster: "So if you can get gasoline you'll leave?"

Robert: "The police are buying up every drop of gas that is out there. They're mobbing the stores and won't let no one get no gas and I'm stuck here now cuz I ain't got no gas. I'm looking at that black car back there and I'm fixing to go get me some gas. Believe that and it ain't looting, it's surviving. It's surviving."

College Republican Ryan Chapman Suggests "Tear-Gassing" Protestors

Posted by Frankie at 8/31/2005 02:51:00 PM

College Republican Ryan Chapman while seeking his higher education at Colorado State University let known his "hate" of protestors and suggested the use of tear-gas by the government against them. Not only did Chapan suggest assaulting those in Crawford who are protesting POTUS Bush's illegal war of choice, he also included Republicans who destroy other republican signs because they are too stupid to understand or cannot read. Young Republican Chapman was referring to the Protest Warrior signs that were destroyed by fellow Republicans who chased off the Protest Warrior Republicans in fear. From his opinion "hate" piece from his state college school paper entitled, "Why I Hate Protesters":

"...The way I would suggest resolving this situation, is to have the police of Crawford simply start tear-gassing the crowd..."
He also goes on to infer that the protestors do not have jobs, families or other responsibilities to attend to.

Young Republican Ryan Chapman attends Colorado State University, which is a land-grant university. The federal government has given the land for Chapman to study, as well as state tax money goes to subsidize his education to keep it affordable for Colorado citizens. So much for the Republican ownership society.

Dick Cheney 91' Invading Iraq: "Classic Definition Of A Quagmire"

Posted by Frankie at 8/30/2005 08:28:00 PM

Republican Dick Cheney, then Secretary of Defense under POTUS Bush 41 in 1991 had a total 180 degree view on the invasion and occupation of Iraq. It just stuck him as a "classic definition of a quagmire" to have our militarily "take control" while the people "stugled" over who would govern. The transscript:
The notion that we aught to now go into Baghdad and ah... and somehow take control of the country strikes me as an extremely serious one. In terms of ah, what we would have to do once we got there. You'd probably have to put some new government in place. It's not clear what kind of government that would be, how long you would have to stay. For the U.S. to get involved militarily in determining the outcome of the strugle of who's going to govern in Iraq, strikes me as a classic definition of a quagmire.
I kid you not, here is the actual audio for you to download:

POTUS Bush's Day vs Reality

Welcome To Bush's America

Posted by Frankie at 8/30/2005 11:33:00 AM

Poverty increases four years strait to 12.7%, 800,000 more don't have health insurance, income DECLINED by 2.6% in the Midwest, but unemployment is only 5%... right.
"I don't know whether it's the way they measure or some other factors," Gabriel said, a Republican. "The political dimension to that would be whether that's a function of the safety net having eroded in the 10 years in which the Republicans have had control of the Congress."

Americans' incomes were little changed in 2004 from the year before, rising 0.2 percent to $44,389, the Census report said. Among U.S. racial groups, black households had the lowest median income last year at $30,134. Asian households had the highest at $57,518.

Income by Region

By region, the South had the lowest household median income, $40,773, while the Northeast had the highest, $47,994. In the West, the median was $47,680, the Census report said. The Midwest was the only region where median household income declined in 2004 from the year before, falling 2.8 percent to $44,657.

POTUS Bush, Americans Are Dying!

Posted by Frankie at 8/30/2005 10:12:00 AM

No, not about those in Iraq, not that Bush can multitast, in America. Thanks to Rob at AMERICAblog:

Katrina is being called the worst disaster in US history, being compared to hurricane Andrew, and it's not over yet. I've been listening to the reports this morning about hundreds of people trapped in attics, levees breaking in New Orleans and water rising. The reports indicate that people are stuck in their attics and have punched through in places and are trying to signal rescue workers.

The Red Cross has indicated its response will be the largest in its history. So how many National Guard and military troops will Bush send to help save these people? Well, in 1992 his father sent over 30,000 troops to Florida after Andrew, in addition to over 6,000 National Guard activated by the state.
According to today's Chicago Tribune, Louisiana has activated 3,500 National Guardsmen.

As the waters rise and people are trapped in their homes, think about someone's grandmother trapped in an attic waiting for her government to help her. George Bush's response? He spent yesterday talking politics, and today he's supposed to go to California.

Unless we see tens of thousands of troops activated to support this disaster recovery, the people who die over the next few days because there aren't enough troops are all on George Bush.

The Republican Evolution Of The Iraqi War Rationale

Posted by Frankie at 8/29/2005 04:24:00 PM

I saw this over at Needlenose, it's , funny, sad, and true:
* 9/11
* Flypaper
* Liberate oppressed Iraqis
* Democracy in the Middle East
* So the deaths will not have been in vain

Dump it all in a blender. Throw against wall to see what sticks. Or you can get the ready-mix version.

Update: A few more reasons to stay in Iraq:

* We haven't turned a profit on the investment yet.
* Evacuation costs too high. Waiting for gas prices to come down.
* To stop Iran from spreading radical Shia'a Islam.
* Waiting until it's safe.

The Poor Facing Katrina Get Left Behind By The Fortunant

Posted by Frankie at 8/29/2005 02:03:00 PM

No, the rapture did not happen; however, the residents in poor neighborhoods in New Orleans were left behind by the more fortunate (with clothes and SUVs) to fend for themselves. Nowhere was anyone asking these people if they could come upstate for safety prior to the once category five hurricane Katrina. Nowhere were these moral high grounders using the conservative airways, megachurches or business to help out anyone but themselves. The people were warned way ahead of time, and they knew that there were those among them who had no transportation, could not afford gouged Greyhound Bus tickets or $1,000+ plane tickets. Let alone afford a gouged hotel room someplace even if they got out. The Star Tribune covers the travesty.

Despite the dire predictions, a group of residents in a poor neighborhood of central New Orleans sat on a porch with no car, no way out and, surprisingly, no fear.

"We're not evacuating," said Julie Paul, 57. "None of us have any place to go. We're counting on the Superdome. That's our lifesaver."

The 70,000-seat Superdome, the home of football's Saints, opened at daybreak Sunday, giving first priority to frail, elderly people on walkers, some with oxygen tanks. They were told to bring enough food, water and medicine to last up to five days.

"They told us not to stay in our houses because it wasn't safe," said Victoria Young, 76, who sat amid plastic bags and a metal walker. "It's not safe anywhere when you're in the shape we're in."
"I was going to the Superdome and then I saw the two-mile line," the 42-year-old musician said. "I figure if I'm going to die, I'm going to die with cold beer and my best buds."

I don't know how any caring individual cannot look at these photos and at least almost have a tear in their eye. In the end, it was the meek among the people, and the Louisiana National Guard who was not in Iraq helping out the meek...

Republican B-list "Christian" Glenn Beck: Sheehan "The Bitch In A Ditch"

Posted by Frankie at 8/29/2005 12:22:00 AM

"Christian" B-list Republican hack Glenn Beck, host of the ever clever titled radio show, The Glenn Beck Program, (checkout his website, you would swear it was a parody site joke) thought he would throw in his own hate towards Cindy Sheehan. Evidently, sometime during this week, Glenn Beck proclaimed that Cindy Sheehan had "wreck[ed]" her family somehow. From the show, Glenn Beck:
"How to wreck your family in 30 days" By: The bitch in the ditch.
Was the already once divorced Beck reffering to Sheehan's recent divorce? Or was it the fact that POTUS Bush killed her son for a socalled "Noble Cause." that he cannot answer? Glenn Beck is a self described "Christian" of the Mormon faith who claims to be a recovering alcoholic and drug addict, as well as an expert on the Episcopal Church. Beck also revealed to his listening audience that "all men" have "dirty sexual" thoughts while seeing thirteen your old girls in bathing suits. This is the same "Christian" Mormon Glenn Beck who said he would take of his "What Would Jesus Do band" while proclaiming he was,
"thinking about killing Michael Moore."
The picture of above is from an obvious fan of Glenn Beck, Ken Robinson of the great progressive town of Richardson, Texas. Richardson got into an argument with a fellow Republican about the content of his sign while attending a pro-war, pro-Bush, "Cindy does not speek for me!" rally in Crawford.

Kristinn Taylor, an event organizer with, heard about the sign and rushed up to Robinson.

“This is our rally and you can't do that here,” he said, only for Robinson to insist he was within his rights.

Camera crews rushed in and Taylor turned to face them.

“To all the media here, this sign is not representative of the crowd here today,” Taylor announced. Some of the crowd around Robinson came forward to shake his hand, while others chanted, “Idiot, go home.”

The two men then squared off and raised their voices.

“Just get outta here!” Robinson yelled, and aimed a kick at Taylor's midsection. Taylor called for security, and a young Woodway policeman quickly showed up.

“I have the right to freedom of speech,” Robinson said.

Robinson continued to protest loudly as police handcuffed him and led him away.

You just have to love it when Republicans scream about "freedom of speech." Though evidently Ken, you don't have the "right" to kick even a fellow Republican in the midsection.

Idiot Republicans Trample Pro-Bush Protest Warrior Sign

Posted by Frankie at 8/28/2005 12:41:00 AM

Republicans trample a pro-Republican, pro-Bush, pro-war, pro-anti-anti-war, counter protestor, "Protest Warrior" sign in Crawford. Unbeknownst to them of the “Protest Warrior” signs original intention.

Here is the actual sign that the Republicans trampled reading, "SAY NO TO WAR! UNLESS A DEMOCRAT IS PRESIDENT..."

At a really outside the Crawford Community Center: pro-Republican, pro-Bush, pro-war, pro-anti-anti-war, counter protestors, trampled on a: pro-Republican, pro-Bush, pro-war, pro-anti-anti-war, counter protestor, "Protest Warrior" sign. The Republican organization, "Protest Warrior" is a group of young pro-war, pro-Bush, Republicans who fight the war on terror safely at home by counter protesting Democrats and or leftist, or anyone who is not lockstep with a pro-Bush agenda for that matter. However, for whatever reason, the pro-Republican, pro-Bush, pro-war, pro-anti-anti-war, counter protestors didn't realize that the Protest Warriors were on the pro-Republican, pro-Bush, pro-war, pro-anti-anti-war, counter protestors side and coragously trampled the sign.

What would the founder of Protest Warrior, and members of the 101st Fighting Keyboard Kommandos, Alan Lipton and Kfir Alfia think when their own white brethren destroying a sign that actually stands for the same ideals? Maybe if it only had their homoerotic logo on it, would the Republicans in Crawford understand that Protest Warriors are on Bush's side.

Update: Even ABC News has a bit about the encounter, I was going of a picture on MSNBC. ABC reports that the Republican Protest Warriors were chased out of the pro-Bush rally, though they later made.
At the pro-Bush rally several miles away, there were some heated moments when two members of Protest Warrior, a group that frequently holds counter protests to anti-war rallies, walked in with a sign that read "Say No to War Unless a Democrat is President."

Many Bush supporters only saw the top of the sign and believed the men were war protesters, so they began shouting and chasing the pair out. One man tore up their signs. When Will Marean of Minneapolis kept repeating that he was on the Bush side and tried to explain Protest Warrior's mission, one Bush supporter shook his hand and apologized.

Maybe it's best these young Republicans do not enlist in the military if they are going to get scrared off by a few words...

Update 2: Even Cindy Sheehan heard about the wimpy Protest Warrior Republicans at the pro-war rally and has some comments...
My friend said that the rally was really the scariest thing he had ever seen. Except for one funny part when some people were walking through the crowd with a "Say No to War---except when a Democrat is President" (whatever that means???) sign. I guess the people at the rally only read the "Say No to War" part and they were ripping up the signs and chasing the gentlemen out. The unfortunate sign holders were trying to tell the counter-protesters that they were on Bush's killing side, but the crowd wouldn't hear them.

Republicans Taking The Jurassic Out of Jurassic Park

Posted by Frankie at 8/27/2005 02:01:00 PM

From the "we could not make this up if we tried file," a group of "Christian" Genesis Republicans have placed the concrete dinosaurse of Palm Springs back where they belong, in the Garden of Eden. The new owners of the delapidated attraction are. From the LA Times:
"putting evolutionists on notice: We're taking the dinosaurs back"
One of the nation's top paleontologists Kevin Padian, curator at the University of California Museum of Paleontology in Berkeley and president of National Center for Science Education, an Oakland group that supports teaching evolution commented,
"Dinosaurs lived in the Garden of Eden, and Noah's Ark? Give me a break. For them, 'The Flintstones' is a documentary."
The parks founder, the infamus "Dr." Kent Hovind who supports the supernatural belief that God created the world in six days. The dinosaurs, even super carnivores such as T. rex, dined as vegetarians in the Garden of Eden until Adam and Eve sinned — and only then did they feast on other creatures, according to the Christian-based young-Earth theory. About 4,500 years after Adam and Eve arrived, the theory goes, pairs of baby dinosaurs huddled in Noah's Ark, and a colossal flood drowned the rest and scattered their fossils. The ark-borne animals repopulated the planet — meaning that folk tales about fire-breathing beasts are accounts of humans battling dinosaurs, who still roamed the planet.

"Dr." Kent Hovind
recieved his unaccredited Ph.D. from Patriot University in "Christian Education" in the record time of less than a year. His 101 page "dissertation" in not publicly available and was signed off by only one comittee member instead of the standard three to five. The "thesis" also includes no title, no references or footnotes, and various mispellings and formattign errors. Here is a picture and virtual tour Hovind's alma mater, Patriot University, now renamed Patriot Bible University where he was given the unaccredited Ph.D.

I just hope they don't have a "gay old time" as the Flintstones did...

Bush: Sheehan is a "goddamned bitch" & "can go to hell" VFW are "assholes"

Posted by Frankie at 8/26/2005 06:26:00 PM

Capital Hill Blue disturbingly has Bush show his true colors about any American who dares to differ with views other than his own. When White House aids asked about Sheehan he yelled,
"I’m not meeting again with that goddamned bitch!"
Bush then gave his concerns about what Sheehan can do with yourself,
"She can go to hell as far as I’m concerned!"
Bush, administration aides confide, frequently explodes into tirades over those who protest the war, calling them “motherfucking traitors.” He reportedly was so upset over Veterans of Foreign Wars members who wore “bullshit protectors” over their ears during his speech to their annual convention that he told aides to “tell those VFW assholes that I’ll never speak to them again is they can’t keep their members under control.”

When White House staff discussed about what to do with the majority of Americans now knowing Iraq was a mistake, Bush replied:
“Who gives a flying fuck what the polls say,” he screamed at a recent strategy meeting. “I’m the President and I’ll do whatever I goddamned please. They don’t know shit.”

Update: To all your right wing Republicans who come to this site in search for "Anti-Sheehan" "Anti Sheehan" "Hate Cindy Sheehan" "Anti Cindy Sheehan" maybe this is the best page for you as POTUS Bush is in lockstop with your anti-American mindset of hate.

Coulter: New Yorkers "would immediately surrender" AGAIN

Posted by Frankie at 8/26/2005 03:25:00 PM

Ann Coulter continues with her Republican shock jock type mentality by again repeating her belief that the citizens of New York City, "would immediately surrender."

Media Matters has the transcript and video from yesterdays edition of Hannity & Colmes on Fox "News."

COLMES: And I want to ask you about something, Ann, that you wrote in your most recent column. You had a very funny line, actually, that it is hard to find a parking spot in New York City. There's no question about it. You've had a pretty good day if you can do that. But then you said, "It's far preferable to fight them on the streets of Baghdad than in the streets of New York (where the residents would immediately surrender)." Now, some New Yorkers felt that you were calling them cowards by making that statement.

COULTER: No, I think I was calling them supporters of Cindy Sheehan.

COLMES: Is that what that is? You certainly don't feel that New Yorkers are cowards?

COULTER: I think they would immediately surrender.

COLMES: So you do think that?

COULTER: I don't -- I don't think -- I think I'd rather have them trying to invade Mississippi or Georgia, Alabama, you know, the states where I want Cindy Sheehan's bus tour to go.

COLMES: I see.

General Clark Sums Up Iraq War

Posted by Frankie at 8/26/2005 03:13:00 PM

Four Star General Wesley Clark has just nails it today in the Washington Post where he manages to sum up what the majority of Americans now think about the war in Iraq.
In the old, familiar fashion, mounting U.S. casualties in Iraq have mobilized increasing public doubts about the war. More than half the American people now believe that the invasion of Iraq was a mistake. They're right.
Resolve isn't enough to mend a flawed approach -- or to save the lives of our troops. If the administration won't adopt a winning strategy, then the American people will be justified in demanding that it bring our troops home.
Americans know that "stay the course" is synonymous with losing. Either we change that statuesque or get out. Also note that 75 American Soldiers and Marines have been killed since Bush went on vacation.

Pro-Life Wisconsin Republicans Harass Grieving Marine Widow

Posted by Frankie at 8/25/2005 03:13:00 PM

This is just sick, from ColdFusion04 over at Kos:

Marine Staff Sgt. Chad Simon suffered a severe brain injury while serving in Iraq when a roadside bomb exploded, injuring Simon and killing three other Marines in his unit. Sgt. Simon died on August 4th, two weeks after his wife agreed to pull his feeding tube, which was consistent with the wishes expressed in his living will.

In the wake of these tragic circumstances, Pro-Life Wisconsin chose to politicize the death of a Marine, to score Terri Schiavo linkage points by making comparisons between the two cases in a press release. In addition, they said that Sgt. Simon was a "victim of two different faces of the culture of death" (The implication is - He was killed by International terrorism and a murderous wife). This is an obscene comparison, and it points out the savage hyporcisy exhibited by an extremist group like Pro-Life Wisconsin.

Here's the Original, stronger press release.

Bush Admits His Family Threatens Freedom

Posted by Frankie at 8/24/2005 03:39:00 PM

Speaking in the red state of Idaho, Bush ranted about how we live in freedom because of families who support illegal wars in which Americans die to create Islamic theocracies. Of Grandma Barbara Bush's SIXTEEN grandchildren, NONE serve in the military.
There are few things more difficult in life than seeing a loved one go off to war, and here in Idaho, a mom named Tammy Pruitt…knows that feeling six times over.

Tammy has four sons serving in Iraq right now with the Idaho National Guard — Eric, Evan, Greg, and Jeff. Last year, her husband Leon and another son Aaron returned from Iraq where they helped train Iraqi firefighters in Mosul.

Tammy says this — and I want you to hear this — “I know that if something happens to one of the boys, they would leave this world doing what they believe, what they think is right for our country. And I guess you couldn’t ask for a better way of life than giving it for something you believe in.”

America lives in freedom because of families like the Pruitts.

What Would Jesus Do? Lie and Kidnap According To Pat Roberston

Posted by Frankie at 8/24/2005 02:27:00 PM

Republican and now terrorist "Christian" fundamentalist Pat Robertson has now lied about his August 22nd statements where he suggested that the United States "assassinate" Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. Robertson even cited the Monroe Doctrine which was used during the cold war by the United States to justify the "Contras" of the 80's. These death squads were used to overthrow DEMOCRACIES, much like that of Venezuela in which democratically elected leaders were ASSASSINATED, and caused the deaths of an estimated 70,000 civilians in the process.

Here is Roberston's original assassination statement, words in RED are emphasized as they specifically and ONLY refer to assassination of Chavez via his reference to the Monroe Doctrine or the act of assassination itself:
You know, I don't know about this doctrine of assassination, but if he thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it. It's a whole lot cheaper than starting a war. And I don't think any oil shipments will stop. But this man is a terrific danger and the United ... This is in our sphere of influence, so we can't let this happen. We have the Monroe Doctrine, we have other doctrines that we have announced. And without question, this is a dangerous enemy to our south, controlling a huge pool of oil, that could hurt us very badly. We have the ability to take him out, and I think the time has come that we exercise that ability. We don't need another $200 billion war to get rid of one, you know, strong-arm dictator. It's a whole lot easier to have some of the covert operatives do the job and then get it over with.
Here is his lie from today about Christian "kidnapping":
ROBERTSON: Wait a minute, I didn't say 'assassination.' I said our special forces should, quote, "take him out," and "take him out" can be a number of things including kidnapping. There are a number of ways to take out a dictator from power besides killing him. I was misinterpreted by the AP, but that happens all the time.
Roberston also lied by again calling democratically elected Chavez a "dictator."

Media Matters has the video of the terrorist fundamentalist Pat Robertson.

I find it funny how it took Republican terrorist Pat Robertson a whole 48 hours to correct this simple "misinterpret[ation]". I guess that's how long it took him to think of a way to spin out of this one... Christ.

Pat Robertson Needs To Update His Website

Posted by Frankie at 8/24/2005 01:30:00 AM

Strait from the good people over at Think Progress, the hypocricy of Republican "Christian" fundamentalist Pat "Assassination" Roberts.

On August 22, Pat Robertson called for the assassination of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. This appears to be in conflict with some of his earlier teachings that appear on his website:

God Almighty wants to protect life and have everyone walk the streets without fear of being murdered.Pat Robertson

Life has become more and more cheap in the society we live in. But God says you shall not murder.Pat Robertson

The moral foundations that taught us to value life are crumbling under our feet.Pat Robertson

I’m sure 2.0 will clear this all up.

Meanwhile, Media Matters for America Calls on ABC Family to Discontinue Robertson Broadcasts:
Robertson, 700 Club host and founder of the Christian Coalition of America, has a history of vitriolic and false statements, as Media Matters has pointed out.

In addition to urging the assassination of a foreign leader, Robertson has blamed gays for divorce, abortion, and September 11, said that a gay-oriented event would bring about "terrorist bombs ... earthquakes, tornadoes, and possibly a meteor," and stated that liberal judges are a bigger threat to society than Al Qaeda.

Bush Politicizing Gravestones Of Fallen In Iraq

Posted by Frankie at 8/24/2005 12:13:00 AM

Talk about pissing on, or running over graves with a pickup track, now families of soldiers or Marines killed in Iraq can have political propaganda FREE OF CHARGE on gravestones.

Families of fallen soldiers and Marines are being told they have the option to have the government-furnished headstones engraved with "Operation Enduring Freedom" or "Operation Iraqi Freedom" at no extra charge, whether they are buried in Arlington or elsewhere. A mock-up shown to many families includes the operation names.

The vast majority of military gravestones from other eras are inscribed with just the basic, required information: name, rank, military branch, date of death and, if applicable, the war and foreign country in which the person served.

Families are supposed to have final approval over what goes on the tombstones. That hasn't always happened.

Nadia and Robert McCaffrey, whose son Patrick was killed in Iraq in June 2004:
"I was a little taken aback. They certainly didn't ask my wife; they didn't ask me. In one way, I feel it's taking advantage to a small degree. Patrick did not want to be there, that is a definite fact."
Former Sen. Max Cleland who is a triple amputee from the Vietnam War said the slogans were:
"a little bit of glorified advertising... I think it's a little bit of gilding the lily. Most of the headstones out there at Arlington and around the nation just say World War II or Korea or Vietnam, one simple statement. It's not, shall we say, a designated theme or a designated operation by somebody in the Pentagon. It is what it is. And I think there's power in simplicity."

The Bush "Bullshit Protector"

Posted by Frankie at 8/23/2005 07:08:00 PM

What a true American Patriot, Bill Moyer, while listening to POTUS Bush in Donnelly, Idaho. Where Bush declared "You are either with us or against us" to the American people who do not support or agree with him with this statement,
"advocating a policy that would weaken the United States."

Later in the same day, White House spokesman Trent Duffy reintegrated this sentiment:
President Bush believes that those who want the U.S. to begin to change course in Iraq do not want America to win the overall "war on terror." Speaking to reporters, Duffy said that Bush "can understand that people don't share his view that we must win the war on terror."

Six Feet Under Finishes Strong On Bush

Posted by Frankie at 8/23/2005 01:42:00 AM

If anyone who regularly watches the HBO original series Six Feet Under, they are well aware of the writers hints of distaste for the Bush administration. Especially in this last season, I think many people expected to find a line in each episode. The series finally was no different. Along with one of Clairs regular anti-neocon / Republican rants, we also got some great No "W" stickers at the bus stop.

What a sad ending it was too. It was a shame Keith died like that. Too bad about Clair (wink) also.

"Christian" Pat Robertson Wants Assassination For Oil

Posted by Frankie at 8/22/2005 06:46:00 PM

From the "Who would Jesus Assassinate" file over at Media Matters. "Christian" Coalition leader Republican Pat Robertson wants the assassination of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. Probably the must deplorable, non Christian, rant, I have ever heard come out of the mouth of Republican Pat Roberts. Not only does he predicate murder, but he justifies it on the basis of oil and saving tax money by not going to "war". He even lies and calls the democratically elected president a "dictator." This is a must see video.
You know, I don't know about this doctrine of assassination, but if he thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it. It's a whole lot cheaper than starting a war. And I don't think any oil shipments will stop. But this man is a terrific danger and the United ... This is in our sphere of influence, so we can't let this happen. We have the Monroe Doctrine, we have other doctrines that we have announced. And without question, this is a dangerous enemy to our south, controlling a huge pool of oil, that could hurt us very badly. We have the ability to take him out, and I think the time has come that we exercise that ability. We don't need another $200 billion war to get rid of one, you know, strong-arm dictator. It's a whole lot easier to have some of the covert operatives do the job and then get it over with.
And for the record Pat "Assassination" Roberts, Venezuela is a 98% Christian, with Catholics making up 96% and Protestants 2% of the population. Not that Pat Roberts would consider Catholics "Christians." Wow, 93% literacy too.

Republican Gary Muchler Fights For The "Noble Cause"... At Home

Posted by Frankie at 8/22/2005 12:44:00 AM

Man, I don't know how I missed this one last week... thanks to DU for the find.

Gary Muchler (right) of Wiles-Barre, PA tries to attack and remove a "Stop The War" sign from Robert Griffen (left). The two battled at what was to be a peaceful protest and really supporting Cindy Sheehan and criticizing POTUS Bush Wednesday, Aug. 17. As DU points out, signing up for the military would be great for Muchler because he loves war so much, and he already has camo pants so he could save some tax dollars. He could help create a theocracy in Iraq, and put his money where his mouth and grubby hands are. Not to mention he could lose some weight, get a tan all over, and support the "noble cause." Why does Republican Gary Muchler hate America?

Also, Jorgi Sanders (left), argues with Luke Lundemo (right) during a "Vigil for Cindy Sheehan" at the War Memorial in Jackson, MS. Sanders proclaimed her unqualified support for President Bush and his military actions overseas as well as her support for the military overseas. Sanders claimed she had a son serving in the military, but refused to identify him. Yeah right.

Jesus' General Recruits Michelle Malkin

Posted by Frankie at 8/19/2005 12:09:00 PM

Republican Jesus is at it again, this time trying to recruit "Christian" conservative Michelle Malkin, even though he knows her real place is in the home, pregnant, cooking and cleaning.
This is about reponces to Malkim's attacks on Cindy Sheehan, where she claimed she could "cross over" and read Casey Sheehans wishes from the grave, and being a member of the 101 Keyboard Kommandos.

The US "Christian" Flag

Posted by Frankie at 8/19/2005 11:09:00 AM

Here is another rapture watching movement which wants to add another state flag next to "old glory" as an additional national flag. The group even created a "pledge of allegiance" for all our school children to repeat daily for the new flag:
I pledge allegiance, to the Christian Flag,
of the United States of America,
and to the Lord, who made us great and free.
I purpose, to band together, with all believers,
to protect the truth and liberty of God.
On, June 13, 2005 the site added this disclaimer:
June 13, 2005 Please note: there is clearly confusion among many. This pledge, flag, and its mission is not to replace our government pledge OR Old Glory. We are NOT trying to overthrow our government or force anyone to be a Christian. We are, however, honoring our LORD and protecting our Christian heritage and liberties.
And of course you can buy your own full size "Christian Flag" for only $50.00.

God Had Larry Northern Caught?

Posted by Frankie at 8/18/2005 09:36:00 PM

Here is something I did not know about the cross, American flag, and flower, memorial destruction of Iraqi War soldiers at Camp Casey in Crawford. Not that it can ever really be answered; however, Republican and Vietnam War veteran Larry Chad Northern was caught while changing a tire on his pickup truck after he destroyed a cross and American flag memorial earlier this week. Evidently, Northern was caught around 9:30PM because he was changing a flat tire. The Sheriff's report noted that the small white crosses from the memorial were stuck in the undergarage of the truck. From observing picture of the destroyed crosses, you can see that nails were use to peg the crosses into the ground. The nails were probably what ended up causing the flat tire and thus, leading to the identification and capture of Northern. Without the unfortunate flat, it could have been likely that Northern could have gotten away.

Northern is free on $3,000 bail and faces state jail felony charges of criminal mischief over $1,500 but less than $20,000. He and his family attend Columbus Avenue Baptist Church.

Cindy Sheehan's lawyer had been threatened with his life today. The accused is facing charges ranging from terrorizing and impersonating a federal officer. Her laywer reported that he chased the man down the road for about two miles after the continuous threats. More to come...

Also, Cindy Sheehan has left Camp Casey to be with family as her mother has suffered a stroke. Cindy left to Los Angeles to be by her 74 year-old mothers side. Cindy told her supporters,
I'll be back as soon as possible if it's possible.
