Well, I would see that perhaps NC would be right behind both TN and SD; far right Nazis.

Fitz, you need some sleep as you'll need to indict Cheney tomorrow-

He is driving us further in to the Devil's Den-

I put my "Impeach Bush" bumpersticker on my car today...had to think twice about for fear of reprisal...and I live in CA, not exactly Bush country. But hey, if you can do what you're doing, and with a sense of humor to boot!

Into the frypan and into the fire. You are right 6 miles. NC will follow and so will GA, ND, and other red states. The interesting thing is that two red states in which voted for Bush want an abortion ban. This is certainly a social injustice to women. This is certainly turning into a revelotionary war in this country.

Be patient, 6 miles! He will get the whole corral. I did read your last posting blog. Bush and gang know that it will be over so they are just packing all the money in the U-Haul before they get caught! Just remember what Fitz said from his past posting blog to Jackie that he will tell us when it is checkmate. Fitz know more than what he is tell telling us. There is clue there! When he does, I can't wait to see the Bush and company in handcuffs and orange jumpsuits (matching pair)!

Hi guys my thoughts are as follows this madness with womens rights will only last till election day. Now as for the ports I must admit Bush and company pulled off a good legal trick. The port deal was done in 2001 now only the name will change not the owners. Its a part of business law where you have a silent owner and only parters names are released. So Halliburton will be the name as the owners will remain the same. Only when there is a lawsuit will we find out the real owners name.
This is a little strange but I was watching an old cartoon of Pinky aka Bush and the Brain aka Rove/Cheney their so much alike. As for the indictments I just have faith and believe Fitz will do what he has to do.

I live in So Cal and I agree with otispdriftwood. Not exactly Bush country here. I saw Donald Trump on Larry King Live tonight. Interesting what he said about the Dubai port deal. Wonder if he is right. Any thoughts?

and, yes, this is just like the 'we're going to get an amendment to ban gay marriage if you will all go to the polls and defeat the Democrats'. Then it was dropped like a hot potato the day after the election. Perhaps the Republicans will remember that little trick this time around and just stay home.

Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening folks:

Happy Friday!

This article certainly is replica of the television show: "The Office." This is certainly the Bush Administration:

Cheney Quotes Racist Anti-Semite to Demonstrate ‘Progress’ In the Middle East
Vice President Dick Cheney, in a speech this week to a leading Israel political action group:
Over the past four years, other free nations have risen in the broader Middle East. … Across that region, the political dialogue has been transformed — and politicians, scholars, students, and men and women from every walk of life are talking about freedom, equal rights, and accountable institutions of government. One leader in Lebanon said: “When I saw the Iraqi people voting, it was the start of a new Arab world…The Syrian people, the Egyptian people, all say that something is changing. The Berlin Wall has fallen. We can see it.”
The “leader in Lebanon” whose analysis Cheney apparently trusts is Walid Jumblatt, a racist anti-Semite who has celebrated the deaths of U.S. soldiers and referred to Condoleezza Rice as “oil-colored.”

And there you have it!

On a side note: I understand that Jackie is celebrating a birthday. Have a wonderful B-Day!

Grandmanuk and E...
here is part of the transcript from the Donald's conversation with Larry King. Interesting to say the least... coming from a businessman instead of a politician.

KING: But first, I want to ask you about a new story that broke today and your thoughts since you are a businessman. The United Arab Emirates has decided to transfer now. They're not going to go through with that deal and they're going to transfer it to an American company to run the ports.

TRUMP: I think it's great of them to do. You know, I'm involved with them to a large extent. I'm holding a lot of buildings over there and Dubai is a great place. And, I think it's great what they're doing. They take all the pressure off the president. They take all the pressure off the United States. And, I thought it was an amazing gesture.

KING: Were you shocked at the way it was -- at the way people reacted to it initially?

TRUMP: Yes, I was. I was shocked and I'm not sure that it was a wise move from anybody's standpoint but I think it was great that they decided to sort of take the pressure off because they have taken a lot of pressure off this president and this country.

KING: Now they said it's a transfer, not a sale. Do you know what that means?

TRUMP: Well, it means a lot of different things but probably they're going to transfer it to a company that, perhaps a company they control that's in the United States. I mean, you know, who knows? But they're going to transfer it to some company or sell it to some company that's in the United States and that's really a good thing under the circumstances.

KING: You say you like dealing with them.

TRUMP: I do.

KING: Because?

TRUMP: They've been very honorable. They've been great people. They've been great friends and they knew they had a problem as soon as this happened because I mean it was just a firestorm. It was unbelievable.

But they have been great friends of mine. We're building a tremendous hotel there Trump International Hotel and Tower right in the middle of one of the islands that they built in the ocean. It's amazing what's happening in Dubai.

So, I feel, you know, a lot of people have asked me and I've always said I have a little bit of a conflict because I happen to like them, number one, and I happen to be doing a lot of business with them. We're in a lot of real estate deals over there in Dubai and I just think what they did today was terrific.

KING: Wolf Blitzer told me that it's one of the most amazing places he's ever been to.

TRUMP: There's never been anything that I've seen like it. There probably has never been anything like it period. It's amazing. They have a crane on every corner. They don't even have corners. They just have cranes, OK.

And it's -- they built islands that the astronauts, one is called Palm Island and the other one is called The World. It's an island in the ocean and it's so big that the astronauts said, look, there's a map of the world. Look, there's a palm tree. It's unbelievable.

And, I'm building on those islands and we're having a lot of fun doing it and it's going to be a tremendous success. So, they're terrific people and what they did today was really wonderful in my opinion.

Anon,

Thanks for sending the transcript from Larry King show. Mr. Trump is a businessman. And his comments is strictly from a businessman's point of view. From a business point of view, it is a good deal as Trumps puts for him. But, politically, we know that this would be bad for the American people. That is why that Dubai deal was a business deal that especially benefit Cheney (who I know had a lot of imput into that deal), Bush (benefits Bush and family), and any of Bush's base. Just from reading the transcript, even Trump sees this deal benefits his empire. It is a shame that the Administration would treat this country as a silent auction.

Folks,

Cornflake Bush has not learn his lesson. I hearing in my head what Bush says in his speech to the American people: "We should learn the lesson of September 11, 2001." Now, if we are to learn the lessons of 9/11, then why is Bush making a the same mistake again in hiring a "mini me" of Brownie. Here from Think Progress:

Under the Radar

HOMELAND SECURITY -- BUSH ADMINISTRATION APPOINTS POLITICAL CRONY TO BE STRATEGIC COUNSEL: The Bush administration recently announced the appointment of 28-year-old Doug Hoelscher to be the executive director of the Homeland Security Advisory Committees. In his new position, Hoelscher will gather information "on behalf of the president and the Homeland Security secretary" for the "key areas of homeland security, including threats to infrastructure and preventing terrorist attacks that use weapons of mass destruction." Hoelscher has no management experience, and only few years ago was working "as a political coordinator for the president, dealing mostly with Bush’s domestic travel."

NO MANAGEMENT EXPERIENCE! Amazing!

First ports, now airlines.

The Bush administration will push ahead with a proposal to ease limits on foreign investment in US airlines, despite some congressional pressure to slow down the plan or withdraw it, Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta said on Tuesday.

The proposed regulation was opposed earlier this year by mainly Democratic lawmakers concerned about the impact on US jobs and airline service if global capital options for financially struggling domestic airlines were expanded.

But in recent weeks a few Republicans have begun to question whether the initiative is wise in light of the firestorm of controversy that has consumed plans by a Dubai-based company to manage six US ports as part of its multibillion-dollar purchase of a rival British firm.

Many Republicans and Democrats in Congress, as well as state and local officials who lease port facilities, are worried that giving a company owned by the United Arab Emirates management control of key US ports could undermine security.

The administration said any security concerns have been adequately addressed but pressure from Congress has forced a new review of the ports proposal.

While Mineta did not comment directly on the ports saga at a House of Representatives appropriations hearing on Tuesday, he did respond to concerns from two Republican lawmakers that the airline deal could pose similar security risks for the United States -- especially since the 2001 attacks on New York and Washington involved hijacked airliners.

He also angrily denounced a three-page anonymous document circulating on Capitol Hill -- believed generated by an unnamed US airline -- that also questions the wisdom of allowing more foreign investment in the airline industry.

"They're saying we're going to hand over the keys of the cockpit," Mineta said. "That's not true. This paper is replete with inaccuracies."

"There is nothing in the rule that would change the ownership law," Mineta said of federal standards that limit control of an airline to US citizens.

It would, however, allow overseas investors more input in key airline company operating decisions in return for a maximum investment of 25 percent of voting stock.

"We want Americans to own American airlines. We're trying to split hairs," said Rep. John Culberson, a Texas Republican. "This raises all kinds of red flags."

Mineta resisted a suggestion by Culberson to pull the ownership proposal, or at least delay it. "I don't believe we should postpone the rule," Mineta said. "We gave this a lot of thought. When it comes to safety and security -- that's walled off," he said.

There is little if any overseas capital in US carriers. ACE Aviation Holdings, the parent of Air Canada, has an equity stake in US Airways.

In a separate interview, Rep. Frank LoBiondo of New Jersey, one of the first Republicans to openly question the administration's handling of the ports deal and original opponent of the airline ownership proposal on economic grounds, said it is appropriate to link the two in the security debate.

"One is as critical as the other -- these are critical infrastructure issues," LoBiondo said.

Not surprised by this since Mineta has connections to the corporate business: Lockheed Martin, Boeing and United Airlines. I wouldn't be surprised if there is huge deal with Boeing and United Airlines in the making. After all, this will benefit the back pockets of the Administration.
