Check out this audio clip of Ned Lamonts latest Radio ad. It talks about how Lieberman missed one out of every 4 Senate votes, including some pretty important ones he could have helped his fellow Democrats out with. Of course Joe was never a Democrat anyway.

Weekly Standard Goes Apeshit on George Allen!

Daily Kos
Excerpt:
George Allen Monkeys aroundIf you’re a Republican politician, you really know things are getting bad when a leading conservative magazine attacks you, brutally mocks you, and otherwise rips you to shreds. Well, that’s exactly what has happened to George Allen, with The Weekly Standard’s just-released October 2 issue. It’s bad news right from the git-go, with the front-page picture of Allen and a monkey (see above) and the article’s title, “George Allen Monkeys Around: Forget the presidential campaign. Can he still win his Senate race?”

H.L.s Take:
After it came out that Allens mother was Jewish which he claimed he didn’t know. Allen released a statement saying “How dare you disparage me that way” He later released a statement saying “I am proud of my diverse heritage.” Thats got to suck, Hating a certain group all your life, then finding out you are a part of that group. But then again don’t all Republcians hate themselves, they must or else why would they act that way???


Special Forces Caught Covering Up Civilian Torture & Murder

Posted in H.L. News, Main Blog (All Posts) on September 25th, 2006 10:04 am by HL

U.S. Army Torturing and Killing Civilians in Afghanistan. They would have gotten away with it fi not for This Times Special Investigation.

A Silence in the Afghan Mountains

LA Times

James Champion Unit C.O.
James Champion was in charge of the unit
Excerpt:
The 10-member Special Forces team, part of the Alabama National Guard, returned to their families in the spring of 2003 with tales to tell of frenzied firefights and narrow escapes.

But the team also had come home with secrets.

Apparently unknown to Army officials, two detainees had died in the team’s custody in separate incidents during the unit’s final month in eastern Afghanistan. Several other detainees allege that they were badly beaten or tortured while held at the base in Gardez.

A member of the Special Forces team told The Times his unit held a meeting after the teen’s death to coordinate their stories should an investigation arise.

“Everybody on the team had knowledge of it,” the soldier said, insisting on anonymity. “You just don’t talk about that stuff in the Special Forces community. What happens downrange stays downrange…. Nobody wants to get anybody in trouble. Just sit back, and hope it will go away.”

What distinguishes these two fatalities from scores of other questionable deaths in U.S. custody is that they were successfully concealed — not just from the American public but from the military’s chain of command and legal authorities.

The deaths came to light only after an investigation by The Times and a nonprofit educational organization, the Crimes of War Project, led the Army to open criminal inquiries on the incidents.

H.L.s Take:
If they would have just reported the killings to the Army they would have probably been told “Hey, stuff happens don’t worry about it” But they tried to hide it. Now they are caught red handed. (with blood) Its not the crime, that gets you, Its the coverup


New York City’s Reservists Are Asked to Return Iraq Pay

Posted in H.L. News, Main Blog (All Posts) on September 25th, 2006 9:53 am by HL

The Soldier gets screwed once again. He went out there and fought the war, survived, and now he’s home its time to pay up for your little vacation in Iraq.

New York City’s Reservists Are Asked to Return Iraq Pay

NY Times
Excerpt:
When they were called up for military service in the wake of 9/11, hundreds of uniformed city workers in the Reserves faced the suspension of their city health and pension benefits. The city offered them an option: it would keep paying their salaries and continue their benefits, but when they returned they would have to repay the city their city salary or their military pay, whichever was less.

Now the bills from the city are coming due, for far more than many veterans imagined they would have to pay — as much as $200,000 — and often for more money than they ever received.

The city is demanding that the veterans repay their gross salaries, even though they never saw about a third of the money, which went for taxes and other deductions. The commissioner of administrative services, Martha K. Hirst, said veterans should be able to get back the difference between gross and take-home pay by amending their tax returns. But several tax accountants said the city had created an accounting quagmire.

David Gitel, a tax accountant in Manhattan, said that if the employees paid the money back over several years — which many will have to do — rather than in a lump sum, they could lose thousands of dollars in income-tax and social security payments.

H.L.s Take: So they have to repay the money that was taken out in taxes, this way the Federal Government gets to collect twice from guys who risked their taxes.
Want to get screwed, I know a sure way, 2 ways actually. 1. Join the Military, 2. Do business with Bush.


The Army vs. Spec. Richmond

Posted in H.L. News, Main Blog (All Posts) on September 25th, 2006 9:42 am by HL

In the Army People Kill other people, usually the dreaded “enemy” but sometimes things get confusing out there and people other then the “enemy” get killed.

The Army vs. Spec. Richmond

Washington Post
Excerpt:
Edward had been among the first soldiers to be sent to prison for killing a civilian in the Iraq war, and among the first to walk out of prison. What waited for him was a parole officer in heat-struck Louisiana.

He didn’t like anyone standing too close. He slept on the floor instead of the bed. When he went through a box the Army had sent home, he found his uniform, infantry badges and ribbons. The vestments of a soldier’s life. Edward put all of it in the trash

H.L.s Take
When you are out on patrol for months or even years at a time, nerves get frayed, soldiers get jumpy after hearing so many explosions, and seeing so many of their fellow soldiers get killed. They get jumpy and sometimes pull the trigger too soon, and innocent people die. Yet one more reason why we should not be going to wars because Bush lied us into them so he could steal oil and get weapons maker richer. This guy should not have been out there at all. Now he has to spend the rest of his life dealing with what he did. Thanks to Bush


H.L. Flashback: Chavez Telling Truth A Long Time

Posted in Main Blog (All Posts) on September 24th, 2006 9:27 am by HL

Why does the U.S. Mainstream Media Hate Hugo Chavez, because unlike them he tells the truth, and is not a Bush lapdog whore. Remember these Gems of Wisdom from Chavez.

Article and Video: Greg Palast Interviews Hugo Chavez

Posted in H.L. News, Main Blog (All Posts), Videos on September 24th, 2006 9:11 am by HL

Here is an interview with the only man in any Government (including our own) with the balls to stand up to Bush and speak the truth. There is also a video below with Greg Palast interviewing Venezuelan people about Chavez.

Hugo Chavez: An Exclusive Interview with Greg Palast

Greg Palast.com
Excerpt:
You’d think George Bush would get down on his knees and kiss Hugo Chavez’s behind. Not only has Chavez delivered cheap oil to the Bronx and other poor communities in the United States. And not only did he offer to bring aid to the victims of Katrina. In my interview with the president of Venezuela on March 28, he made Bush the following astonishing offer: Chavez would drop the price of oil to $50 a barrel, “not too high, a fair price,” he said — a third less than the $75 a barrel for oil recently posted on the spot market. That would bring down the price at the pump by about a buck, from $3 to $2 a gallon.

But our President has basically told Chavez to take his cheaper oil and stick it up his pipeline. Before I explain why Bush has done so, let me explain why Chavez has the power to pull it off — and the method in the seeming madness of his “take-my-oil-please!” deal.

Let Me Get This Straight

Posted in H.L. News, Main Blog (All Posts) on September 24th, 2006 9:09 am by HL

Here’s one from The Great Bartcop

Let me get
this straight…

Bush invades Iraq, kills tens of thousands of locals and 2700 soldiers

and the American whore press covers up for him and hides his crimes.

But Hugo Chavez calls Bush “the Devil” and he’s “an unstable crackpot?”

Speaking is worse than, say, 50,000 death women and children?

Nancy Pelosi came running to Bush’s rescue, calling the truth-teller,
“a thug.”

Why is Nancy Pelosi fighting for their team?

She didn’t have to endorse what Chavez said, but she could’ve said,

“Bush’s military aggression has caused hatred
all around the world.”

That’s a fact – she can’t get in trouble for saying the obvious,
but no,

she thinks the top House Democrat should run to the bully’s defense.

No doubt, Harry Reid ran to Bush’s defense, too.

Just a few years ago, Jesse Helms (Is he in Hell yet?) said “Clinton
better not


come to Carolina without bodyguards because
the troops might want to kill him.”

Sidebar:

The military hated Clinton because he never sent
a man into battle who didn’t come home.


They LOVE Bush for lying 2700 of them into their
graves.   Why can’t they think better?

Did the GOP side with Clinton and condemn Helms?

No – they stick together because they want to win.

Democrats wouldn’t stick together if they fell into a vat of molasses.
