Notice how people get confused when they lie so much they can't remember. As for Dr. Quack aka Sen. Frist is so deep in corruption he can't remember what he did anymore.

Fitz and his team have worked so hard with all the cases their working on now. I remember Fitz said he was running and listening to music on his IPOD. I brought Peaches an IPOD would some one let me know how to put music in the little bugger.

Bush speechwriter leaves post after 7 yrs.
Gerson told The Washington Post that he had been talking with Bush for months about leaving but waited until the White House political situation had stabilized somewhat.

Gerson started working for Bush in 1999 in the early days of his presidential campaign, and he became one of his most trusted aides. He had a West Wing office, unusual for speechwriters in recent history.

Some of Bush's most-repeated signature phrases, such as "the soft bigotry of low expectations" or "the armies of compassion," were Gerson's handiwork.

Maybe now Dubya will write his own, no that would be some funny stuff.

(Snip) Sanctions were critical to preventing Iraq from acquiring equipment that could be used to reconstitute banned weapons of mass destruction (WMD) programs.

How odd. If cutting Saddam's allowance was the purpose, then sanctions, limiting oil exports, was a very suspect method indeed. The nature of the oil market (a cartel) is such that the elimination of two million barrels a day increased Saddam's revenue. One might conclude that sanctions were less about WMD and more about EPS (earnings per share) of oil sellers.

In other words, there is nothing new under the desert sun. Today's fight over how much of Iraq's oil to produce (or suppress) simply extends into this century the last century's pump-or-control battles. In sum, Big Oil, whether in European or Arab-OPEC dress, has done its damned best to keep Iraq's oil buried deep in the ground to keep prices high in the air. Iraq has 74 known fields and only 15 in production; 526 known "structures" (oil-speak for "pools of oil"), only 125 drilled.

And they won't be drilled, not unless Iraq says, "Mother, may I?" to Saudi Arabia, or, as the James Baker/Council on Foreign Relations paper says, "Saudi Arabia may punish Iraq." And believe me, Iraq wouldn't want that. The decision to expand production has, for now, been kept out of Iraqi's hands by the latest method of suppressing Iraq's oil flow -- the 2003 invasion and resistance to invasion. And it has been darn effective. Iraq's output in 2003, 2004 and 2005 was less than produced under the restrictive Oil-for-Food Program. Whether by design or happenstance, this decline in output has resulted in tripling the profits of the five U.S. oil majors to $89 billion for a single year, 2005, compared to pre-invasion 2002. That suggests an interesting arithmetic equation. Big Oil's profits are up $89 billion a year in the same period the oil industry boosted contributions to Mr. Bush's reelection campaign to roughly $40 million. (snip)


And remember how helpful Mr. Baker was at telling America Junior did in fact, win the election of 2000 not Al Gore. Pttt!!

Yesterday was a mixed bag for Karl Rove. He got the news that he won't be charged in the CIA leak case, but got a not so warm welcome in New Hampshire last night, where a swarm of New Hampshire residents were less than pleased with his visit and the circumstances surrounding it.

Last night, Rove was the guest of honor at the New Hampshire Republican party's annual dinner/fundraiser. The special guest was invited in an effort to boost fundraising efforts to pay the party's phone jamming legal bills. (MORE)

Karl's day wasn't as good as we thought.

Final posting:

More about the Gerbil's blunder with the blind person today. Here is an excerpt:

But even though the sun was behind the clouds, Wallsten still needs the sunglasses because he has Stargardt's disease, a form of macular degeneration that causes progressive vision loss.
The condition causes Wallsten to be sensitive to glare and even on a cloudy day, can cause pain and increase the loss of sight.
Wallsten said Bush called his cell phone later in the day to apologize and tell him that he didn't know he had the disease.

And his only complaint is that the president didn't answer his question at the news conference.

Wallsten, who is the author of a book coming out next month titled "One Party Country: The Republican Plan for Dominance in the 21st Century," had asked about White House credibility now in the aftermath of top aide Karl Rove having been cleared in the CIA leak investigation.
But Bush said he wouldn't comment with another top White House aide still facing prosecution in the case.


Well, there you go! Must have been the weed! Good night! Signing off!

Okay, I need to tell you guys this. Most of you are very e-knowledgeable. You know where to get your news. But the rest of the people out there, the majority, have no clue what's going on and depend on their TV news - that awful bastion of liberal corruption- (unless it's Fox) - to tell them the state of things.

So understand this - Rove is a brilliant PR guy and Marketing guy - and he just won a major battle, possibly war. These guys, you have to give it to them, are far more canny and intelligent then whoever is doing the DEM equivalent.

So for the most part what people are hearing is Rove is "unindictable" and that Bush's ratings are climbing.

Some people are wondering? Did Fitz just not find the way in to get Rove? or worse...what happened?! How did Fitz lose this one? Do you really think if he can't nail Rove, he's going to get to Cheney, who is far more powerful? It doesn't sound like Fitz to me, to let a bad guy go, to get a worse guy. I thought he worked his way up. I will appreciate hearing your comments, fellow bloggers - I have no party affiliation but I will say this administration is the most corrput in history.

Respectfully suggest you do some reading on your own and try to answer for yourself some of the questions you have posed. You might then be in a good position to educate some of "those who are wondering," about just how duped they've been and just how corrupt our current government really is. You surely must have formed your stated opinion about how corrupt our government is upon some information sources of your own. How about reviewing those? And, lots of sources on the last few threads here to get you started.

teak, you can find the whole thing by googling spp for all the background on this "trilateral" project, or start at http://www.spp.gov

The highway is called the NASCO Corridor: check out

And, if you are really eager to know what THIS is all about you have to be ready to put your head around the UFO/ET coverup story.
Dr. Steven Greer, M.D.'S Discovery Project
And, his newest book, "Hidden Truth Forbidden Knowledge," will give you more detailed information on the controlling cabal than I have found anywhere else.

Another more academic resource is
Dr. Michael Salla's

Fitz is up against more than we can imagine, even with all the information I have referred to above. I support Fitz, whole-heartedly. Whatever it takes. But by getting the TRUTH OUT, the road to freedom can be cleared.

No offense, but Karl Rove doesn't really have as good PR as a toad-stool given that the media is stalin-age medium.....

The media is so controlled that Rove is the one who gets a huge break, aka they save him not the other way around

If the media was not purchased/owned by neocons, Rove would not get a break anywhere and his PR would fall flat!

Just look at John Boehner, a total loser with no future or cause! Yet he calls himself the cat's pajama using controlled media!

ALL been done before.

Get educated on the truth and spread it everywhere....all over

Expose it everywhere and bring the truth to the masses..

Karl Rove will have a credibility problem from here on out. Oh, they may cover it up in public, and act like all is hunky-dory, but just what was his testimony to the GJ, testimony that required five, count them, five appearances. Rove can still throw some lighter fluid on the charcoal, but his usefulness as a tool and an operative is coming to an end. He knows it. We know it, if we would stop and think a little.

These people are manipulative, scheming, and have a certain criminal cleverness about them, but there are always, always fatal flaws in the cohesiveness when this much bad stuff is going on. (Unless this whole show really is being directed by aliens) Corruption is ultimately mindless and parasitic. Just watch. Somebody will turn on somebody, or somebody will get too greedy, or too arrogant. There will be internal grabs for power and much, much, much deceit and dissembling. There will be implosion, and the role of the SP as one of the detonators is not finished yet. (Of course attempts will be made to disarm him, burn him, and render him powerless to do his job - think Karl Rove with a can of lighter fluid.) We all need to hang in, it will be one hell of a ride.

Ok Fitz now its time for "a word"

I know jackie will be concerned about you after seeing this stuff.

"As of yesterday, the official word from Fitzgerald’s office – via Samborn -- is:

Asked if the CIA leak investigation is still continuing, Samborn said, "I'm not commenting on that as well at this time."

Samborn -- and by proxy Fitzgerald -- have made an official about face. The status of the investigation is now officially in limbo. And I submit to you that neither Samborn nor Fitzgerald are ignorant to the significance of this carefully worded reversal of stated policy pertaining to the status of the investigation.

It just gets stranger and stranger, doesn’t it. You have no idea.

Notice that the above quote taken from October 28, 2005 is attributed to CBS News but the link I’ve provided is to politicalforecast.net . I would love to have provided you a link to the actual CBS news quote. It was originally attributed to CBS News legal analyst Andrew Cohen.

The link provided for the original CBS New report by politicalforecast.net is


But when you click through to it, you come to a two part article about the Libby indictment which does not include the quote by Samborn stating that “the investigation will continue”. That quote has been edited out of the article. Click through and you’ll see that the link to the second part of the two part article, dated October 29, 2005, does not contain the Samborn quote, “the investigation will continue”. When you click the link at the bottom of that page, it brings you to -- not part one of the article you were reading -- but rather a different article dated October 30, 2005."

I just want it cut and dry the facts, is there a war now between Gonzales? Is everyone battling neocons now?

Things have gotten upside down here, I hope its all speculation but now noone can tell.....

Obviously if you need any help you let us all know for sure, Biloxi if something happens and there is a war in the DOJ, he will let us know right?

The american people need to know we can all count on Justice, we are the ones defending this country. That means backing up the prosecutors and anyone else against them!

Somehow I feel like I am living in Mcarthy days.....

Terrorism is a tactic, not an entity, and it is a tactic used by people who have a political grievance. Therefore, if you want to eliminate terrorism, you have to address the political problems that gave it birth.

President Bush has made no effort to do this. He has aggravated the situation and made it worse. He's created a virtual factory for terrorists.

U.S. Military Deaths in Iraq Reach 2,500

Thursday June 15, 2006 3:31 PM


Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Pentagon Thursday confirmed that 2,500 U.S. troops have died in the Iraq war since it began more than three years ago. The grim milestone was announced just hours before the House was to begin a symbolic election-year debate over the war, with Republicans rallying against calls by some Democrats to set a timetable for the withdrawal of U.S. troops.

While there were no details on who it was or where the 2,500th death occurred, it underscored the continuing violence in Iraq, just as an upbeat President Bush returned from Baghdad determined that the tide was beginning to turn in the war, which began in 2003.

Of course, this could be one of the reasons for Bush's hasty trip to Iraq, another milestone in the war.


One day, I hope we might find out the true details of the Battle of Baghdad Airport...without any diversion from any side, ala Jessica Lynch---another victim of propaganda and lies via the Pentagon.

Roger rancourt I am well aware of what is happening in the CIA case. So much propaganda by the WH makes it hard for some to stay on track. The only person talking is Rove's attorney and he's spinning the truth.
I also read about our troops that have died. Nothing's changed in Iraq or Afgan. We're told everything is going great as we see continuing bombings. Even Tony Snow is using former President Carter ( a Nobal Peace Prize winner) vs Bush the worse President in the history of America. Snow got some laughes when he said Bush was a better President then Carter. The only question I had was were the jornalist laughing at Tony or with Tony.

New documents obtained by a conservative watchdog group suggest that the US Army Corp of Engineers may have publicly lied regarding the involvement of the Vice President's office in awarding a 2003 multi-billion dollar, no-bid contract to Kellogg Brown and Root, a subsidiary of Halliburton, RAW STORY has learned.

The newly released emails show the Army Corps attempting to deflect attention from Cheney's office by distributing talking points that would mask Cheney's purported role. The Corps could not immediately be reached for comment.

1. More on Hookergate:

Hookergate Limo Co Involved in Grand Jury Investigation
By Paul Kiel - June 15, 2006, 12:31 PM

Some news from the House Homeland Security Committee's hearings on Shirlington Limousine's $21 million contract with DHS. Shirlington, you'll remember was the company reported to have run lawmakers and hookers to and from Brent Wilkes' "poker parties."
Justin, who's at the hearing this afternoon, just called to say that Rep. Mike Rogers (R-AL), the chairman of the subcommittee on Management, Integration, and Oversight, said in his opening statement that "we also invited the president and vice president of Shirlington Limousine to appear today, but they declined because of a federal grand jury investigation."

2. This too funny aboutBoehner:

Boehner Pees at Casino, Comes Back with $2,700
By Paul Kiel - June 15, 2006, 12:21 PM
We got a number of emails from TPMm readers in Michigan about today's item in the Daily Muck about Majority Leader John Boehner's (R-OH) lucky break at the slots. According to Boehner's spokesman, he won this money at a "rest stop" when he stopped off to go to the bathroom - his aide told The New York Times he gambled "to pass the time at a rest area while waiting for a colleague."
But there's a problem.
There are no rest stops with gambling in them, our intrepid readers pointed out. If you want to gamble in Michigan, you either go to Detroit, where there are three casinos, or to the numerous Native American casinos throughout Northern Michigan.

At the very heart of U.S. Middle East policy, from the war in Iraq to pressure for regime change in Iran and Syria to the spread of free-market democracy in the region, sits the 39-year-old daughter of Vice President Dick Cheney. Elizabeth "Liz" Cheney, appointed to her post in February 2005, has a tongue-twisting title: principal deputy assistant secretary of state for Near Eastern Affairs and coordinator for broader Middle East and North Africa initiatives. By all accounts, it is an enormously powerful post, and one for which she is uniquely unqualified. (snip)

(snip)With the unspoken support of her father, Cheney has kept a hawk's eye on Iraq policy within the department, intimidating opponents of the neoconservative axis within the administration. And, less visibly, according to former officials who've worked with her, she has made her influence felt in choosing officials, selecting (or blocking) the appointment of ambassadors and other foreign service officers, and weighing in on other bureaucratic battles at the department.


Much more there.

Isn't Lynne Cheney on or was on some neocon think tank? Those Cheney girls are chips off the old blocks...cute grandbabies though.

If there's a war going on in the DOJ now they will try to remove people from their posts, even though Comey,Ashcroft and the GAO made that illegal.

I just read your link about Randall Samburn. i think a lot of people are trying to read between the lines of Randall's "no comment" comment to assume that the case is being shut down. This case is not being shut down. As Fitz said from the beginning that this case is in secrecy. And there is a reason why this caase to be in secrecy. When you are dealing with a corrupted, graft, and mafia type of Administration, the case needs to be tight lip.

Regarding your question about Gonzo, well Fitz was entangled with Gonzo on the missing emails that Gonzo refused to turn over. Gonzo says it is "national security" reasons.. Yeah right.. In addition, he worked with Gonzo and other prosecutors on the recent and a large child pornography case. I have no idea even they are been seen recently since Fitz is very secretive to his whereabouts. But, I will say that Gonzo has been quiet lately since the immigration issues and the FBI search on William (Dollar Bill) Jefferson's home...But, I think a lot of people and the media are really jumping to the wrong conclusions about this case and agreeing with Luskin's distorted spin of the story.

"Now, are the Cheneys connected anyway to Dyncorp? "


Yes! Connection to Cheney-Halliburton

From a na rticle that I found:

How did Halliburton receive a no-bid contract to repair Iraq's oil wells?

Halliburton has an exclusive contract with the Army under what is known as the Logistics Civil Augmentation Program (LOGCAP). Under LOGCAP, a single company acts as consultant to the Army to plan for war or crisis-time logistics support. The program was formalized in 1985 and tested in 1988 during Operation Desert Shield in Iraq. In 1992, then-Defense Secretary Dick Cheney contracted a company named Brown & Root to study the ways in which the private sector could integrate its services with the military. Later that year, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers developed LOGCAP as it is used today with a single company as contractor. The first company to receive the LOGCAP contract was Brown & Root.
Brown & Root, now Kellogg, Brown & Root (KBR), held the LOGCAP contract with the Army until 1997 when the General Accounting Office found significant cost overruns during the conflict in Bosnia. One often-cited example involved KBR charging the military $87 dollars to fly in sheets of plywood from the U.S. worth only $14. DynCorp held the LOGCAP contract from 1997 until 2001 when it was again awarded to KBR. KBR is a subsidiary of Halliburton, where Vice President Cheney served as CEO until running for office in 2000.

I find this comment posted about Mr. Fitzgerald...I took it as a compliment.

The major problem we have is Patrick Fitzgerald is a special prosecutor, not an independent counsel.

He is only required to report any crimes committed, and he has too much integrity to do anything else.
If he were an independent counsel, his job would be to get all the facts, and report them.

Iran/Contra and Whitewater were 500 page reports.

Can you imagine what would happen if we still had an indepedent counsel law and it was Patrick Fitzgerald.

We'd be talking about the total destruction of the neocons.


We should pray for truth and justice, and keep the faith we have in Team Fitz.

From Truthout: Feds Sue States Seeking Phone Companies' NSA Records

"The federal government sued the New Jersey attorney general and other state officials Wednesday to stop them from seeking information about telephone companies' cooperation with the National Security Agency.

The unusual filing in U.S. District Court in Trenton, N.J., is the latest effort by federal authorities to halt legal proceedings aimed at revealing whether and how often AT&T, Verizon and other phone companies have provided customer records to the NSA without a court order."

Only Fitzgerald is the one that decide when he is ready to call another press conference to indict the next person involved in the case.

Teak brought a good point from the article that she passed of the difference between a Special Prosecutor vs. an Independent Counsel.

Here is the definition of a Special Prosecutor:

A special prosecutor is a lawyer from outside the government appointed by the attorney general or Congress to investigate a federal official for misconduct while in office. (which is Fitzgerald)


Independent Counsel :

United States Office of the Independent Counsel was an independent prosecutor — distinct from the Attorney General of the United States Department of Justice — that provided reports to the Congress under 28 U.S.C. § 595.
(which was Ken Starr in the Clinton scandal)

Here some facts:

Starr spent more than $7 million between last October 1998 and March 1999, a six-month period that included the impeachment proceedings against President Clinton, according to a General Accounting Office report. In March 31, 1999, Starr had spent a total of more than $47 million on his inquiries into the Whitewater and Monica S. Lewinsky matters and related issues, just short of the record for independent counsel spending.

Yet, in its first 15 months, the CIA Leak investigation cost $723,000 which is nothing compared to Starr's cost.

Founder and CEO of Microsoft Bill Gates intends to step down in two years, according to today's Wall Street Journal.

Mr. Gates, 50 years old, started Microsoft in 1975 with childhood friend Paul Allen. Mr. Gates served as chairman and CEO until 2000, when Mr. Ballmer took over as CEO. In 2000, with his wife, he formed the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, whose assets now are $29.1 billion.
The company announced that Chief Technical Officer Ray Ozzie will immediately assume the title of chief software architect, a role Mr. Gates has held for several years.

Al Pacino in The Devil's Advocate put it well...

"You sharpen the human appetite to the point where it can split atoms with its desire; you build egos the size of cathedrals; fiber-optically connect the world to every eager impulse; grease even the dullest dreams with these dollar-green, gold-plated fantasies, until every human becomes an aspiring emperor, becomes his own God... and where can you go from there?"

"And as we're straddling from one deal to the next, who's got his eye on the planet, as the air thickens, the water sours, and even the bees' honey takes on the metallic taste of radioactivity? And it just keeps coming, faster and faster. There's no chance to think, to prepare; it's buy futures, sell futures, when there is no future."

Here is a bit of information about Arlen Specter:

Unclaimed Territory - by Glenn Greenwald

Specter falsely denied proposing amnesty for the Administration's illegal eavesdropping
Last Friday, Walter Pincus of the Washington Post reported that Sen. Arlen Specter had proposed legislation which included blanket amnesty for anyone who has violated FISA, i.e., a "provision that seems to ensure that no one would be held criminally liable if the current program is found illegal under present law."

I have now obtained (with the help of the ACLU) a copy of Specter's marked-up proposed legislation which makes quite clear that Specter simply was not telling the truth when he denied proposing amnesty to the administration.

Section 801 of Specter's legislation is entitled "Executive Authority," and it specifically amends the criminal punishment provision of FISA (which is Section 109(a), (50 U.S.C. 1809(a)), as follows:

(1) General . . .

(B) FISA. -- Section 109(a) of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 (50 U.S.C. 1809(a)) is amended --

(i) in paragraph (1), by inserting "or under the constitutional authority of the executive" after "authorized by statute"; and

(ii) in paragraph (2), by inserting "or executed under the constitutional authority of the executive" after "authorized by statute."

(2) Retroactive effect -- The amendments made by paragraph (1) shall be construed to have the same effective date as the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978.

Currently, Section 109(a) of FISA provides that "A person is guilty of an offense if he intentionally - (1) engages in electronic surveillance under color of law except as authorized by statute . . . ." That means that anyone who eavesdropping on Americans without complying with the warrant requirements of the statute (FISA) is committing a felony.


Here is Specter's marked-up proposed legislation

"Bill Gates is rich enough to build his own Microsoft "campus," call many of his actual employees temps so as to avoid paying benefits, work both permanent and temporary employees so hard they never leave the office, contract out work to India and the local state pen, assemble a team of marketing gurus working 24-hour shifts to force a shoddy product onto an overwhelmed universe, and still have time left over to build (well, have someone else build for him) a palatial, subterranean compound on Lake Washington. No wonder he thinks he doesn't have to pay taxes. Well, he's right. However...

You don't have to pay taxes, either. Here's how: set up a subsidiary of yourself. File incorporation papers. Then relocate a portion of your personality to, say, Cuba or Iraq or Medina or Mercer Island or some other foreign country outside U.S. tax jurisdiction. The precedent, courtesy Chairman Bill, is clear: the baser elements of your personality are responsible for earning all of your income. They're somewhere else. Somewhere far away. The nice part of you, the part that's cooperating fully with the law, is really just a corporate shell. Or a holding company. It's demonstrable, and, what's more--always a happy bonus when transnational corporations are figuring out ways to deceive the public--it just happens to be true! The part of you that earns the rent really is debased! What could be easier? Call today; your tax professional probably already has the full details."

Bluewild, one of Gates' competition is Google, its search engine, and its software. I have read articles where he is competing against Google. Of course, Gates is 50 and the founders of Google are in their early 30's. And the founders of Google are in the Forbes 500 for youngest billionaires. Regarding Gates's tax info. Here is his financial information for 2005 for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. A lot of Gates' tax break comes from the foundation. Here is the link:


I read a lot of books that talks about what the wealthy businesses pay less taxes year after year (I am not talking about Cheney or some the Gerbil's friends)/ Some books to recommend to read is:

1. Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki
2. Cashflow Quadrant by Robert Kiyosaki
3. Millionaire Next Door

I have read Kiyosaki's book several times especially the Cashflow Quadrant.

I remember seeing a seminar on Kiyosaki some time ago where he says the employee and self-employee work for money and the big businesses and investors (like Bill Gates, Michael Dell, Howard Schultz, etc.) make money work for them.. It is worth reading.

At some point, if and when legal remedies have been exhausted, the custodians holding all of the facts about the Plame case and the larger anti-American conspiracy, will spill. After all, whats to lose when the nation is so imperiled?

Keep in mind, the cons overreached with Plame and were not prepared for any resulting variance to divert or interrupt their timetable.

The neocons have been planning the subversion of our nation for over thirty years, beginning with Wolfowitz's earliest college delusions, but that does not mean they are now prepared for any contingency, particularly if the teeth of the beast-the military commanders-are informed and ready to jump ship and fight for their country against the fascist mob.

But that is worst case. Ideally, I'd like to see People v. do a neocon slow roast such that everyone becomes informed. And that would be the propagandists' worst nightmare.

One way or another, the facts will out, with disastrous consequences for the neocon subversives. A Neofascia....

Microsoft Admits WGA Phones Home
Friday, June 09
Source: Beta News---------------------------------------------

Microsoft acknowledged reports Wednesday that its latest update to Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA), an anti-piracy program implemented to detect counterfeit copies of Windows XP, phones home to the Redmond company on a daily basis. News of the occurrence surfaced this week after privacy advocate Lauren Weinstein confirmed Internet murmuring that a connection was being made to Microsoft's servers even after WGA had validated a Windows system as legit. Microsoft quickly responded to the issue, saying the feature was a "safety switch." WGA, which was made mandatory last July for downloading updates from Windows Update, is still considered a pilot program to Microsoft. It says the "call home" functionality was designed to enable the company to shut down the program in case of a problem, such as an influx of false positives. The addition came as part of a WGA notifications program rolled out in April. The expansion would cause users running counterfeit versions of Windows to be notified directly on their desktop that their operating system was not legitmate...

Folks you need to get out there and not be worried about the NSA. Don't be afraid of them, law enforcement will protect you. Get out there and hit the courts, board of elections to get your rights to vote restored.

This man is a practicing attorney, as is this one

One of them we have personal experience with, he was the one who succeeded in shutting down a certain neocon think-tank in Washington D.C.

Remember we all have certain inalienable rights, one of those real very serious is the right to vote.

I have someone getting in tough with Robert Kennedy. Remember what this country is about when you fight for your right to vote.

Do not ever be intimidated by neocon NSA or anyone, as when a person takes charge of their life, they are the strongest. They put fear in the dark, not the other way around.

Yes and we all must make a choice to stand now, regardless of what Fitzgerald does here. You know he will finish the case but our country needs everyone here.

We have to take a stand, and grip firm to the constitution as we get back what was taken from us.


The news is very fast now.

RR- That's right-do NOT be afraid of them.
Do your own "psyc-ops" or misinformation campaign if you are think you are under surveillance or tapped. If you are, its probably illegal!
Think about your political activities-or if you talk smack about Dubya to your friends on the phone(I do).
Russ Tice (NSA whistleblower) is trying to tell congress the NSA spied on potentially millions phone calls. And if you made an overseas call-count on being swept up in the NSA net.

It will be fun-just operate within the bounds of the law. Should you run into a problem, I wouldn't trust a fed law enforcement unless Fitz himself told me I should-call your local police for assistance.
Keep those letters, emails and phone calls coming into your reps offices. Political pressure committees are the best.
Make an appointment to go in to your rep, armed with questions. Tell them firmly and politely you want answers and will continue to return until you get them!
Remind them MOST people are fed-up and they won't all be as nice about it as you, if the public doesn't start seeing some work out of them! They support a culture of death, not life and they must be held accountable!

OK, I'm getting down off my soapbox for the day;-)

No thought....

...no word, no meaning, no date, no effort, no stone is left unturned or is too insignificate,

too inconsequential, to escape the scrutiny of a good, academic, legal, mind... gone astray.

This: http://article.nationalreview.com/?q=NWM1MjU5MzA3YTM3ZjdkOTA1ZjczN2MxMjY2YWEwNDc=

is a very intimate, rare view of human endeavour, effort, emotion and thought

at it's most darkest, hideous moment. It personifies, exemplifies and exonerates

the Bush regime and America's most vile, perfidious elite. And it comes from within.

This is your true enemy. And he is a constitutionalist. So am I. And we are at war.

He will stop at nothing. Nor will I, to stop him.

NRO provides a service, a window, where, very rarely, the curtains are open, to study and

prepare for past, ongoing and upcoming atrocities, from minds... gone astray.

Copywrite protection is a valid concern but so is the a fair market place.

The cut paste and paste last night was a privacy concern actually.

MS just can't tolerate competition and the means they go to in halting any are unprecedented in history. WalMart is doesn't even come close. A good product comes out and time and time again MS will buy up and kill it off and introduce some inferior copycat. This halters the progession of the information age greatly.

The first article on this page is a good synopsis...

Gald you enjoy your employ there... I could be envious! : )

Yes, I knew you were talking about the privacy concerns. However, I just wanted to point out the problems companies like MS have with their products being counterfeited.
Don't be envious...I was just lucky! :)
P.S. My interview for that position was an all day event! Literally, 7 1/2 hours spent interviewing with 7 attorneys...one hour with each one...and 1/2 hour break! LOL
