Excerpt: EVERY REPUBLICAN EXCEPT ONE VOTED TO NOT PROVIDE FUNDS FOR VETS HEALTHCARE--WRITE YOUR SENATORS NOW!
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU HAVE A SENATE THAT ONLY CARES ABOUT THE WEALTHY AND CORPORATIONS WHO CAN GIVE THEM CAMPAIGN FUNDS.
H.L.s Take: They can't wait to force war upon us, Support The Troops, Support The Troops. Theres your support.
Bush Partying on Cinco de Mayo.
Excerpt: After the passage of the credit card industry-written bankruptcy bill last month, you probably thought Congress was through screwing average Americans, at least for a little while. You were wrong. Now, we have the "Responsible Lending Act" from Ohio Rep. Bob Ney (R). Though Ney is from the state with the highest foreclosure rate in the country, he's working to make sure banks can continue ripping off unsuspecting consumers.
H.L.s Take: Congress just continues to screw over the little guy, in full view of everyone.
I couldn't sleep the other night, so I went online, and while looking for something else, found this. Lots of fun quizes, good way to kill an hour when you can't sleep
Bush Goes to Latvia
By now you've heard of this guy Galloway from the Respect Party in England who won a supposedly safe seat in Parliament away from Tony Blair's Party
Check out this interview he did with some super whore reporter right after he won. And you thought the US Press was bad
JP: I'm not trying to badger you, I'm merely trying to ask if you're proud at having driven out of Parliament one of the very few black women there, a woman you accuse of having on her conscience 100,000 people.
GG: Oh well there's no doubt about that one. There's absolutely no doubt that all those New Labour MPs who voted for Mr Blair and Mr Bush's war have on their hands the blood of 100,000 people in Iraq, many of them British soldiers, many of them American soldiers, most of them Iraqis and that's a more important issue than the colour of her skin.
H.L.s Take: Can't we get this guy over here on some kind of Politician Exchange Program. We could send over Santourm... Or Delay...Or Wolfie....or Cheney...Or Bush...or Condi...or Rummy...or Arnold...or Pataki...or Bloomberg...
or Sensenbrenner,...OK I got it the worst one of all...John Kerry
World Socialist Website
Excerpt: In testimony before Congress May 2, US chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Richard Myers voiced concern that the sustained deployment of US forces in Iraq and Afghanistan poses significant risks for future American war plans.
...A senior Defense Department official quoted in the Los Angeles Times said, The assessment is that we would succeed [in future wars], but there would be higher casualties and more collateral damage. We would have to win uglier.
H.L.s Take: Ok lets take the first part first. The U.S. future war plans? So right there they are admitting that they have future plans. Future plans to go in to other countries, steal more oil, make many more Billions
for Halliburton, and Bush/Cheney. More plans to kill hundreds of thousands more innocent people, more plans to have many more soldiers die for thier bloodlust, and greed. According to the second part of the quote, this will happen if we
don't have the soldiers to make it happen. Hey we will just "win ugly" so maybe 200,000 civilians will die next time. Maybe another 5000 Marines will be dead. Thats just great. U-S-A, U-S-A, U-S-A
Excerpt: This is not some politically-motivated allegation leveled by a nation or party opposed to Bush's determination to invade Iraq. This is a "secret and strictly personal" and "extremely sensitive" internal memorandum from America's closest ally (and now proven co-conspirator) in the so-called Operation Iraqi Freedom.
This is the smoking gun.
H.L.s Take: Everybody knows, not many care...not here at least anyway.
Excerpt: The news from Iraq is bad and getting worse with each passing day. Iraqi insurgents are stepping up the pace of their attacks, unleashing eleven deadly bombings on April 29th alone. Many of the 150,000 Iraqi police and soldiers hastily trained by U.S. troops have deserted or joined the insurgents. The cost of the war now tops $192 billion, rising by $1 billion a week, and the corpses are piling up: Nearly 1,600 American soldiers and up to 100,000 Iraqi civilians are dead, as well as 177 allied troops and 229 private contractors. Other nations are abandoning the international coalition assembled to support the U.S., and the new Iraqi government, which announced its new cabinet to great fanfare on April 27th, remains sharply split along ethnic and religious lines.
But to hear President Bush tell it, the war in Iraq is going very, very well.
H.L.s Take: Uh huh
