Pretty prophetic words::
"'Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger.'"

-- Herman Goering at the Nuremberg trials

How appropriate to our situation these days. Especially when we read comments like this(pops) made by Bush.

The amazing lengths people will go to.

Some of these photos are incredible. I think I like the one with the mirror the most.

Stephen King promotes
"'If I know anything, I know scary,' King emailed. 'And giving this president and this out-of-control Congress two more years to screw up our future is downright terrifying."

Paula's Fried Butter Balls : Food Network

What's the point of this? Does anyone really want to eat something like this? A fried Snickers bar, I understand. But Fried Butter Balls?
GOP terrorism ad sparks Democratic furor:
"'Once again we see that the GOP will truly do and say anything regardless of whether or not it's true, they are so desperate to hold onto power,' Democratic National Committee Communications Director Karen Finney said in a statement. 'Clearly Republicans are so afraid of their abysmal record they can't offer one example of what they've done to keep America safe.'"

This is one truly over the top ad. If the stakes are this high, what have we been doing for the past 6 years? Has nothing the GOP'ers done worked? Has everything been such a dismal failure that we are still in this sort of danger? Wasn't all this anti-terrorism "stuff" supposed to make us safer? Apparently not, because the GOP still is warning us of how close we are to nucular annihilation.

September is National Preparedness Month

So you'll have to wait until next year before you prepare for a terrorist attack. I hope they know that too.

Boy Scouts Arrested For Blowing Up Car

So, what's the point of telling us they are "Boy Scouts?" Were they on a Scout outing? Wearing their uniforms? Did they recite the Scout Oath and Law before setting off their bomb?

Do they play sports? Couldn't this just as likely been, "Baseball Players Arrested for Blowing Up Car?" or "Former Pre-Schoolers Arrested For Blowing Up Car." Why not just tell us the facts, without the spin?

"Three Youths Arrested For Blowing Up Car." There. That wasn't hard, was it?
But, But, But.... Clinton!:
"Republican Sen. John McCain on Tuesday accused former President Clinton, the husband of his potential 2008 White House rival, of failing to act in the 1990s to stop North Korea from developing nuclear weapons."

Once again, the GOP'ers deflect the blame from themselves and blame Clinton. Perhaps Clinton didn't have a perfect agreement - but the fact is, HE HAD ONE. What has the Bush admistration done in the 6 years they've been in office? NADA.

Oh wait, that's not entirely correct. They've managed to increase the distance between us and North Korea to the point that we have no diplomatic relationship with them now. Way to go!

One of the strangest web sites I've ever seen.

Warning: Audio Content - be careful at work.
YouTube - Freedom River

I'm not sure when this was produced - it looks like similar projects (The Point comes to mind) from the late 60's or early 70's. It's perhaps more timely today than it was then.

But, But, But.... Clinton:

Gingrich Says Democratic Sex Scandals Have Been Worse Than Conduct of Former Rep. Mark Foley

"(AP) Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Wednesday that Democratic sex scandals have been far worse than the suggestive Internet messages sent to teenage congressional pages by former Rep. Mark Foley."

Great... the GOP'ers whine and complain again. "Sure, we're bad, but they're worse!" Boo Hoo. They're just not prepared when they get bitten in the fanny by their own rhetoric. It sure would be a lot better if they quit trying to deflect blame and just admitted that one of their own did a Bad Thing (tm). Instead, they claim that they did all they should have. "I told my supervisor" was the response from NY Representative Tom Reynolds. As Jon Stewart pointed out, "I took it to my supervisor?" Tom Reynolds…Congressman? or Assistant Manager at Applebees?"

The number of Republicans who are scurrying under the counters now that the lights have been turned on is astonishing.
See, it was all a prank!!:
"According to two people close to former congressional page Jordan Edmund, the now famous lurid AOL Instant Message exchanges that led to the resignation of Mark Foley were part of an online prank that by mistake got into the hands of enemy political operatives, the DRUDGE REPORT can reveal. "

It was all a joke! Get it? Obviously, all the stupid libtards out there just don't understand that this is just some silly fraternity prank and not really the scandal that the libruls would like to make it out to be!

That clearly makes it "ok." Sheesh, and here I was, thinking that this makes Clinton look like a choir boy. Shucks, was I wrong!
