Report says Saddam's Iraq and Al Qaeda not linked No kidding we know that. Somehow McCain is getting away running for office being wrong on this doesn't matter. Why the hell did we spend the time and money to find out what we already knew and what doesn't matter? I just don't get it?
Senate rejects earmark moratorium The U.S. Senate overwhelmingly shot down an effort Thursday night to ban "earmark" spending for one year -- quashing an effort backed by all three senators seeking the presidency. personally I don't know how how I feel about them. I guess if it something that a State really needs then it would be acceptable. However McCain says you are by definition of receiving them a dirty bad Politician. But self serving underhanded Lobbyists and Politician's like McCain are okay? I just don't friggen get it?
Bush confident about our failing economy Trying to calm jitters about the economy, President Bush conceded on Friday that the country "obviously is going through a tough time" but expressed confidence about a rebound. In a speech to The Economic Club of New York, Bush said this was not the first time the economy has been rattled and that he is certain that it will ride out its troubles. "These are uncertain times," he said. The president spoke as evidence of an ailing economy piled up. The dollar fell, oil and gold hit record highs, the economy is shedding jobs, retail sales saw a big drop and the effects of a severe credit squeeze linger. Economic worries have replaced the Iraq war as the No. 1 concern of voters in this presidential election year. I wrote about it over a year ago. This is no bump to overcome and this story I wrote more than 2 months ago forecasting world wide violence and recession best describes The Second Greatest Depression
There's only one place left in America that they don't get it says McCain The SOB is smiling while he says that. I hate to tell him. They are all out of touch and none of them care. I just don't get it!
House defies bush on surveillance they don't get it they Don't matter he will veto
Bush wants weaker smog standards Doesn't give a damn!
Clinton apologizes to Black voters Ah Ah!
minister off Obama's campaign Ah Ah!
ferraro forced out Pshaw! They don't get it! We know damn well Racism is alive and well. More so in today's environment than ever but being Politicians they have to hide it!
As the Dow tumbles and Bush bails out Bear Stearns Bernanke says he will help the home owners as bush warns of too much help and vows veto if there is an attempted bailout of speculating wanabe homeowners. Now I don't friggen get it? Meanwhile the chief idiot paints this brain dead, naive, unrealistically upbeat picture!
I hate to say it but another unrealistic endeavor is The unrealistic gun Ban in DC I must admit I am not a big fan of gun ownership primarily because of the style of guns people own and what they do with them. I am afraid right now that it is futile to try to get guns off the street and if the shit hits the fan we may be thankful we have them around. It is a catch 22!
Now let's finish this with Iran and what they naively call "speculation" Hard-line allies of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad are ahead in Iran's parliamentary election, partial results suggest. But conservative critics of Mr. Ahmadinejad also appear to be making a strong showing that could undermine his domination of the parliament. Reformists are said to be struggling after large numbers of their candidates were barred from the race. The United States says this means the results were "cooked". NAW!
The Iranian authorities had called for a big turnout to defy the US and other countries they say are Iran's enemies. The election will shape the political map ahead of 2009's presidential poll. President Ahmadinejad flew in from an Islamic summit in Senegal to cast his vote. He said the world had chosen Iran as its "role model and saviour". They are preparing to take on Bush
stunningly knowing what Bush is doing, why, and the negative consequences of it all and that Iran is stacking the Right war wing and military to take on what they too se is in immanent inevitable war with the US there are 6 signs to prove the war is immanent and this so called expert says they are six signs the US is not headed to war with Iran
Last but not least as I always say, Experts don't have a damn clue! The world's anti-terrorism experts met for a conference in Stockholm this week and, as Roger Hardy, the BBC's Islamic Affairs Analyst, found, optimism was in short supply. What struck me most, in three days of debate, was the degree of pessimism about the task at hand. Yes, there has been a learning curve. It is now widely recognized that Muslim hearts and minds matter and that military successes mean little if the battle of ideas is being lost. But there is still a long way to go.
This came home to me when I spoke to an American military man who had helped produce the US Counter-Insurgency Manual. How long did he think the "long war" - as many now call it - would last? It is the kind of question journalists ask, and I did not expect that he would put a number on it. But he did. "Thirty years if we get it right," he said. "A hundred years if we get it wrong." That's not pessimism that's optimistic Realism
I have said it a million times these so called experts don't have a clue! War with Iran was only one of the reasons for attacking Iraq and this total world eruption will make the 100 years war look short. Depressions, wars, they don't get less significant over time they get more pronounced and much worse as time goes by. This will be no exception! Old regional wars were a prelude to WW1. WW1 was a preparation for WW2, and WW2 was a warning if we were stupid enough to allow it to happen, WW3 would be the longest and the worst!
