Fed up with her hubby’s refusal to deal with their shredded relationship, Laura Bush has told the president that she’s leaving him for a month—and maybe for good! … Her desperate decision comes just weeks after a furious George stormed out on her following another bitter argument. “Laura’s had it!” says the source. “It looks as if their marriage has reached the bitter end.”
[T]he first lady had divorce papers drawn up, and showed them to George, pals say, telling him that if he didnâ€™t shape up she would file. But George has stood by Condi—and now he’s paying the price for loyalty to her.
The deteriorating marriage of George and Laura Bush has reached crisis level—First Lady Laura Bush has secretly hired a divorce lawyer, The Examiner can reveal. …
She remembers what happened to Sharon Bush when she was getting a divorce from George’s brother Neil. She didn’t get the settlement she deserved until she threatened to expose all the family secrets in a tell-all book. … “It’s over,” says the source. “The minute George’s term of office expires, so will their marriage.”
—The National Examiner

WASHINGTON - The Army and Marine Corps are letting in more recruits with criminal records, including some with felony convictions, reflecting the increased pressure of five years of war and its mounting casualties.
The number of felony waivers granted by the Army grew from 411 in 2003 to 901 in 2006, according to the Pentagon, or about one in 10 of the moral waivers approved that year. Other misdemeanors, which could be petty theft, writing a bad check or some assaults, jumped from about 2,700 to more than 6,000 in 2006.
â€œThe data is crystal clear. Our Armed Forces are under incredible strain and the only way that they can fill their recruiting quotas is by lowering their standards,â€ said Rep. Marty Meehan, D-Mass., who requested the information from the Pentagon. â€œBy lowering standards, we are endangering the rest of our armed forces and sending the wrong message to potential recruits across the country.â€
H.L.s Take “Join the Army if you fail”, that’s great, now we will have a bunch of guys that have prison records, how long until they start letting murderers over there. (I know I know) Pretty soon judges will be giving felons a choice: 20 years in the pen or 4 years in Iraq. They they will come back with battle fatigue after they were already criminals to start with. Then we will have a bunch of battle fatigued criminals running the streets. As Yakov Smirnov used to say (and probably still does) What a Country. Of course Bush can’t institute a draft, that would instantly add every young person between 16 and 35 to the anti-war movement, and the protests would make the ’60s look like a tea party.

San Diego Tribune
SAN DIEGO â€“ Poway defense contractor Brent Wilkes and former high-ranking CIA official Kyle â€œDustyâ€ Foggo, childhood friends from San Diego who got entangled in the Randy â€œDukeâ€ Cunningham corruption scandal, were indicted Tuesday by a federal grand jury.
U.S. Attorney Carol Lam announced the indictments at an afternoon press conference, calling the charges against the two men â€œbreathtaking in scope.â€
The investigation began after a June 12, 2005, report by Copley News Service reporter Marcus Stern that detailed Cunningham’s sale of his Del Mar Heights home to a defense contractor for hundred of thousand of dollars more than it was worth.
Within nine months of that first report of corruption, Cunningham was convicted and jailed.
Court documents allege that Wilkes provided more than $700,000 to Cunningham in exchange for the former congressman corruptly influencing the appropriation of funds and the execution of government contracts to benefit Wilkes’ company, Poway-based ADCS Inc.
The dominos continue to fall, Republicans going down in corruption scandal after corruption scandal. This will continue for many years eventually culminating in the fall of ‘The House of Bush” (well that may be reaching). Randy Duke Cunningham is still sorry for stealing that Golden Toiliet though Here is a flashback from November 30, 2005 called Dukies Crying
