Hi little angel thank you for your kind words but with age comes wisdom. Your lucky you are wise at a young age. Now I'm happy to wake up every morning in good health, my kids are healthy and happy (your included) and I've been blessed with some wonderful friends on this blog. I'm glad to see the globe back I missed you so much.

Hi Jackie:
I guess we are the only ones here and everyone on the east coast have gone to bed. Which is where I need to get going soon.

How is Peaches?

Blogger Jackie said...

Hi S-Q your right it's just me and you. Peaches is ok thank you. I often send her some of the posting by Fitz. I wonder where SPB is and Night Owl they are so bad. But it's like a comedy show. It's really hot here in California I know it's hot where you are. Peaches said in Afghan is was 117 degrees I told her they'd have to send me home or I'd be fried.

Does the blog make you laugh Jackie? I think it's fun to make other people laugh, don't you? :)

117? Yeah, that is a little warmer than here right now. We are at 110-115 most days now because it is our monsoon season...storms and humidity!

S-Q my eyes are closing so that the sign for me to retire for the night. Sleep well and I'll be back on in the morning our time. At lease I know that SPB will have the break down of the news that way I don't have to put on my glasses and read all those pages of information. I know SPB makes it easy for me to keep up, that's what I like about all the bloggers so much information and laughs too.

Final posting:

Reed Blames McCain for Loss

The one armed bandit defense!

I am going to blame Fitz for taking the last stale Dubai donut since the donut shop is on the DHS list for terrorism. And save Nix's Check Cashing, Fitz!

Good night. Signing off!

Hahahahahaha that's too much!!

Ralph Reed blames John McCain for all his woes

This is getting to be a comedy circle! First, the Gerbil blames John McCain. Then, Grover Norquist blames John McCain for getting caught.

Then, the indians blame John McCain and now Ralph Reed blames McCain! Gee, the only thing missing is McCain blaming John McCain! ;)

Great stuff happened today, 6 false flag attacks were averted in the middle east finally and many of our soldiers came home safely. I hope my brothers friend is among them!

Its so sad to see close or loved ones die, always changes life permanent. Thats why this war must end and now it is definitely getting there.....

Don't steal all the doughnuts SPB! :)

I just came back from the Munich Filmfestival, the movies there where mostly political and even though their content was shocking it was good to see so many talented and intelligent film makers being concerned about the current situation in the world.

My Film tips:

Al Gores "Inconvenient Truth" and even better

Richard Edwards "Land of the Blind" with Ralph Fiennes and Donald Sutherland...

I'm sure you'll all love the second one and here is a trailer:

Land of the blind


"If elections could truly change anything, don't you think they where illegal" ~Thorne

"Under the old government man exploited man but since the revolution it's the other way around" ~Jo

The movie is smart and startling, there are million of insinuations to previous and current political events and persons but it's left to the audience to connect those dots...

....well there's an elephant ;_) and than the "president for livetime" Maximilian the II is also called "Junior" ;_)

I can only highly recommend this movie!

So that worked for me - have a great day over there!

wayne masden report

"Kuhn's now discredited story was an attempt to show that Brewster Jennings & Associates was a well known operation. The story and the forgery of the resumes was an attempt to clear Scooter Libby of any wrongdoing while his major financial backers met at the AIPAC meeting in Washington to set up his defense fund. The fake Brewster Jennings resume stories were an attempt to garner sympathy for Libby and another attempt to smear Valerie Plame Wilson and her husband, Joseph Wilson. Some of those involved with the fake resume story were also associated with the fake Niger documents that helped propagandize the public and media for the attack on Iraq. The re-appearance of the fake resume story just after the announcement last week of the Wilsons' lawsuit against Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, Scooter Libby, and ten unnamed "John Does," is no coincidence.


WMR's CIA sources have stated that Brewster Jennings & Associates was not active in the 1980s but was activated in the early 1990s to deal with the proliferation of nuclear weapons after the collapse of the Soviet Union."

Good Morning Justice Seekers!
elees, good post-I always forget to read him.

Hi s-q and Jackie, I am glad to hear Peaches is doing OK-hope she is can cool off somewhere in that awful heat.

a Fall of Saigon-style visual for the news media, have led the Americans to be slower than they could have been about getting U.S. citizens out of harm's way.

I have a friend with parents living there-mind you, they lived in TX for 30 years-just moved back to retire in Lebannon a few weeks ago...Israel's handling makes me sick-they have given civilians a "1 minute" warning on bombing attacks-hardly enough time for my friends elderly parents!

I really get impatient when it appears-once again-this lame,do-nothing government allows innocent people to suffer.
C'Mon Fitz, unseal it for the world to see-don't make me call out the Guard!

Not to worry, I don't think they would cooperate with my "orders" ;-)

Hi Jackie, it was nice to be missed.

I was busy telling SPB what I did to the drug dealers who woke me up at 4:00 a.m. This morning, Mother Nature gave me a free 4:30 a.m. alarm clock with a storm to wake the dead but I am not messing with her. I'm just happy her wind did not tear my roof off and the power is still on. Mother Nature did punish all my neighbors who set their garbage cans out last night.

Happy Thursday! I still have an intact roof over my head!

Happy Thursday indeed, Night Owl. That is good news.

I am interested to know what people are thinking about our presence in Afgahnistan. Initially, based on the limited info I had at the time-I was for it. But now?

I have concentrated most of my study on Iraq and the "WOT"-so your thoughts on Afgahnistan are appreciated. OH is considering sending some more Guard units there in 08.

I especially like this paragraph:

"The members of Congress seek to explore "all documents that reflect contacts by Mr. Abramoff or his associates" with President George W. Bush, Karl Rove, and other White House and broad range of other current and former executive branch officials."
Have a great day everyone!! :)

Nice to see PJF's post, but I'm sure he checks in even if he doesn't post.

Jackie...glad to hear Peaches is doing well. Hopefully, she'll be home soon and she won't have to be evacuated.

Interesting that the evacuation of American citizens in Lebanon hasn't happened more quickly. I know someone that was actively involved in evacuation plans. This should have gone much more quickly. Someone was not on the ball....oh, yeah, I forgot this is Dumya's administration. The military has contingency plans up the kazoo for situations just like this. Another Katrina?????? God, what fools!

A smile to my face....the fact that there is a good chance this bunch of
criminals might really have to pay for their incompetence, greed, graft
and decadence.

FIGHT THE RIGHT....DOWN WITH THE UNCHRISTIAN WRONG!!!! I know, now I sound like one of them. I'm just too crabby about what they've done to our wonderful country and now the
whole freaking world!

T--The U.S. was arrogant to think it could take on everyone in Afghanistan when the same people fought back against the Soviet Union and as a result, screwed up their economy and destroyed their military. I saw military vets in Russia who served in Afghanistan. For some of those men, their hearts may still pump blood through their veins but they are already 'dead.'

As our soldiers come home, we damn well better do a much better job of taking care of them than we did with our Vietnam vets. I hear the vet hospitals are much better today, as a result of some things Clinton put into motion years ago. But, there is always room for improvement.

I was for a Special Ops to go plunk bin Laden dead or alive and then get the heck out. Instead, Bush & Co. sent everyone in and it then became harder to get everyone out. Even a 'Black' Ops or 'dirty tricks' would have been preferable to what we got that still has not ended.

Grandmanuk is right. The Religious Wrong needs to be exposed for the lying,corrupt hypocrites that they are!
I'm sure Ralphie Reed was just the beginning of this. More lying, corrupt NeoCons will lose this November. Can't shake that Abramoff stink!

NIght Owl, said: Even a 'Black' Ops or 'dirty tricks' would have been preferable to what we got that still has not ended.

Agreed. I did not understand-after what the Russians experienced in the 80's why we did it that way. And I have read OBL was a CIA asset during that time too...hmm, he knew us, it would seem.
I had a great blog post going about some of the neos and it "disappeared" when my browser stopped responding-I find that really annoying. even my history is missing!!

Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening folks!

Happy Thursday!

Noght Owl:

Thanks for telling me your story with the drug dealers at 4 am.. I hope that you got a kick out my story about my days in an apartment complex and the drug dealers in the alley. But, your story was much funnier than mines.


The topic of discussion. What brings a smile to my face? Well, for one thing: thanking God that I can get up another day! And another is reading a positive affirmation and a thought for the day that I receive through email! Nothing is promised in life. Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a promissory note, and we have today which is the present. Everyday is a decision that each and everyone of us has to make. And those decisions come with consequences: for the good and the bad. So, you have to decide whether you are going to have positive day or a negative day. Of, course, I choose the positive. We live in a negative world but it is a decision everyday that you have to choose.

In other news:

From Thinkprogress, a slap in the face to the vets!


The Bush administration has reneged on its offer of free credit-monitoring to help the 26.5 million veterans and service-members whose personal data was stolen from a Department of Veterans Affairs employee's laptop. Citing the FBI's "high degree of confidence" that nothing sensitive was accessed, Deputy VA Secretary Gordon Mansfield said that legislation proposed after the burglary, which would require mandatory warnings to victims in the event of a data breach, is now "no longer necessary." Leaders of veterans groups reacted angrily that the administration will not err "on the side of safety or on the side of veterans," especially since, according to Jim Mueller of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, "Computer industry experts are telling us the exact opposite of what the FBI has reported." The VA inspector general's office found that the department had "poorly protected" the sensitive information and responded to the theft with "indifference and little sense of urgency or responsibility" at nearly every step. Senate Veterans Affairs Committee chairman Larry Craig (R-Idaho) said the report is “a stinging indictment of a security system that was lax to nonexistent.”

A nice class action lawsuit by vets would shame them into paying for the credit checks. Those are only $20 a pop, multiplied by 26.5 million people = $530 million. What did I say this morning about taking care of our vets? (Another rhetorical question, do not feel obligated to answer)

T--Yes, the CIA giving bin Laden and company money back when they were fighting the bad old Russkies was based on a very simplistic policy that almost always comes back to bite later: Making friends with the enemy's enemy. The same version was tried with Saddam. It is too easy for 'friends' like that to turn against each other later.

SPB--Yes, I was laughing quite hard of your story of the idiot who lost his stuff. Too bad he did not call the cops to report it stolen.

So S-Q, did they let you visit the set of Dragnet?

This blog often puts a smile on my face, especially reading uplifting comments by SPB and roger rancourt. To stay positive can be a challenge with the daily news of death and destruction. However, knowing that the good/light is far more powerful than the bad/dark helps to keep me centered and focused because I realize this is only a temporary situation that we will get out of so much wiser, since people are waking up to what's really going on.
