not endless lies

JEB Hearts Katherine Harris,

publicly criticizes her Senate race

rudeness so classic, it's almost fucking polite!

On the President Not Being Able To "Leak":
Let's say, and why not, that you are a dopehead living in Amsterdam and you are one ganja-smokin' motherfucker. You wake and bake; you do a three-toke lunch; you head over to one of the many fine, fine "coffeeshops" every evening to meet up with hookah-suckin' friends to get toasted, toasted, nice 'n roasted on the latest greenhouse-grown organic shit. And it's all cool, man, 'cause pot's legal in Amsterdam. But let's say you run a website that's specifically targeting Americans in America, tellin' 'em not to smoke pot. In fact, the website is all about how bad it is, how it should not only remain criminalized, but the penalties oughta be more severe, how smokin' marijuana is a gateway drug, even though you've never found yourself suckin' a glass crack pipe or stickin' needles in your arm.

Let's say that eventually you are outed, that someone says you are, in fact, a number one stoner, not the model of drug free living you advocate. Now, the proper response would be to hang your head in shame as you are beaten with sticks like a rabid cur, chased down the street until you disappear over the horizon. But, no. Instead, you simply state that no, you are not like American dopesters 'cause it's legal for you. You never broke the law, unlike all those fuckin' tokers in the USA.

if your money seems to vanish in a puff of smoke

try investing it in medical marijuana. Medical marijuana hits stock market.

the all powerful executive is a liar

go read digby

as some things are obscured, others are thereby revealed

Remember the "3" steps, STR.

Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.
Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:
*Ask the individual to SMILE.
*Ask the person to TALK.. to SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE
(Coherently) (i.e. . . It is sunny out today)
*Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.
{NOTE: Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the person to 'stick' out their tongue... if the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke}
If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call 9-1-1 immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.

his royal highness prince dim son

recently allowed this much: that the Iraq conflict had stirred "a certain unease as you head into an election year."

"Whenever you're at war and you've got 135,000 of our young men and women overseas, it is unsettling to Americans," House Majority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) conceded to reporters recently. Just ask the loved ones of the maimed, heh, Boner? "Feeling a little unsettled today, folks? Too bad about your son's testicles."

so, it's just an unsettling feeling of unease that I feel. for a while there i thought it was shame at my government and at the people who installed it for lying us into an optional war. i thought it was anger at the utter shame that torture and criminal domestic spying have brought to us all. i thought it was a wrecked treasury. i thought they were big lies about both social security AND Medicare. I thought it was about allowing a major national city to die before our very eyes, without relief or respite in the names of the taxpayers who thought they were looking out for their fellow citizens during emergencies, only to learn that official policy is not to give a fuck. my bad.

boy, am I uneasy and unsettled. pretty fucking unsettled and uneasy, indeed. the certain unease bush smells on the wind is a war crimes tribunal. our president. he thinks the election year is cause for concern. he should. he is that much closer to the dock this year, this "election'. but it is all rigged, and the illusion of accountability will remain a sham. so, yes, I am uneasy too. worried sick.

curt weldon is whacked in the head

you know. as in too fucked up to be believed. this is just wrong. i'd kick his ass, literally, if he said anything like that about my sick kid. what a douchebag!

the health care crisis

is one of the most serious problems our nation now faces. it is a much more urgent and compelling concern, made worse -not better- by the Medicare legislation last time around. Rather than promote a simple and effective solution, conservatives contort until the actual goal is utterly lost, and then go on and on in complex rationalization of their market based systems that invariably FAIL. It's not rocket science and here is an exclellent, brief discussion as to why rethugs are always wrong about solving our nation's health care woes.

Meanwhile in another part of creeptown...

Katherine Harris is losing more than just her election campaign. Time for some serious therapy.

too bad he didn't take his crooked allies with him.

White House press secretary Scott McClellan said Tuesday: "Congressman DeLay has been a good ally whom the president has worked very closely with."
