This Time He's Gone Too Far
President Bush has signed a deal with Arab nation Dubai to run 6 Major U.S. Ports inlcuding New York, Newark, Miami, and Baltimore. This time he's gone too far.

California Re-Certifies Diebold Voting Machines.
California Secretary of State Kevin Shelly, in an about face, that was apparently planned all along has suddenly recertified Diebold’s voting machines for use in The Golden State.
Back in August of 2005 California had rejected the machines due to a 10 percent failure rate mainly due to jamming printers, and freezing screens on the machines monitors.
"After rigorous scrutiny, I have determined that these Diebold systems can be used for the 2006 elections," said Shelly who was appointed to his postion by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.

I just want to thank you for publishing the Mohammed cartoons. Several
of them were hilarious, leaving me even more perplexed and nervous with
people who are completely devoid of humor. That chilling form of
psychopathy isn't limited to fundamentalist Islamists; George Bush and
Company, as well as those responsible for the Crusades share the same
Sherry, Thanks for writing in.
The Hollywood Liberal puts up all the stuff, that others are afraid to touch. (Including the latest Abu Gharib photos)
Religion is a means to control the people, and nowadays both Islamic, and Christian people are being controlled a great deal, unfortunately they are being controlled by people who preach the exact opposite of What Jesus, and Mohammad stood for.
Hope you become an H.L. Regular
Penn. Gov. Rendell to Veto Voter ID
Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell, has said that he will veto a bill that was just passed by the Pa. Legislature that would require all voters to show some form of identification when going to the voting booth. This law has been fought for by Republicans all across the country who are trying to do everything they can to keep, the poor, the elderly, and minorities out of the booths because these people of course tend to vote Democratic, and Republicans will go to any lengths to hold on to power despite the fact that a large majority of the American populace is strongly against them.

Bush's Mysterious 'New Programs'
Excerpt: Later, the New York Times reported that “KBR would build the centers for the Homeland Security Department for an unexpected influx of immigrants, to house people in the event of a natural disaster or for new programs that require additional detention space.” [Feb. 4, 2006]
Like most news stories on the KBR contract, the Times focused on concerns about Halliburton’s reputation for bilking U.S. taxpayers by overcharging for sub-par services.
“It’s hard to believe that the administration has decided to entrust Halliburton with even more taxpayer dollars,” remarked Rep. Henry Waxman, D-California.
Guess who the big loser is under Bush health plan
Excerpt: Heads up, Americans. The Bush administration is now greasing the skids for employers to drop your health coverage. This is a biggie.
Radical change was not the headline when the president unfurled his latest proposals for health savings accounts. It was presented mainly as a sensible-sounding way for people without medical insurance to buy it with pre-tax dollars, the same way companies do.
US Congress Votes to Provoke Iran
Excerpt:We're seeing a mirror image of the Iraq war buildup. After all that's been exposed, how is it possible that they can possibly be pushing another war in exactly the same fashion? They're getting away with it solely thanks to the complicity of Congress.
Skype a nightmare for wiretappers
Skype, the Internet calling service recently acquired by eBay Inc., provides free voice calls and instant messaging between users. Unlike other Internet voice services, Skype calls are encrypted — encoded using complex mathematical operations. That apparently makes them impossible to snoop on, though the firm leaves the issue somewhat open to question.
U.S. Reclassifies Many Documents in Secret Review
Excerpt: WASHINGTON, Feb. 20 — In a seven-year-old secret program at the National Archives, intelligence agencies have been removing from public access thousands of historical documents that were available for years, including some already published by the State Department and others photocopied years ago by private historians.
Yet Another Agency in Charge of Domestic Intelligence?
Excerpt: It took me a half dozen e-mails and telephone calls over three days to just to confirm that yes, the Directorate of National Intelligence, or DNI, the new-ish uber-spooks body — has opened an office to deal with state and local law enforcement.
And it took me a few more inquiries before the DNI gave up the name of its head, Michael Tiffany, though nothing more.
Mind you, this is not classified information. Forget about denying public information to a pesky reporter: State and local cops have to know who’s in charge of state and local law enforcement issues, right?

Justices to weigh late-term abortion ban
Excerpt: The Bush administration has pressed the high court to reinstate the federal law, passed in 2003 but never put in effect because it was struck down by judges in California, Nebraska and New York.
The outcome will likely rest with the two men that President Bush has recently installed on the court. Justices had been split 5-4 in 2000 in striking down a state law, barring what critics call partial birth abortion because it lacked an exception to protect the health of the mother.
