It will only get hotter in Chicago over the next couple of days.

Speaking of which, the Chicago TV stations showed their priorities today. All of them cut off during the Bush & Blair press conference to go to their regular programming at noon. The NBC station showed the Tony Danza Show (or whatever that is called). Two other stations switched to the news, beginning with the weather!! So, Tony Danza and the weather are more of a priority than Bush, that made me laugh.

That's OK; they were already to the question and answer session in the press conference. Bush did not say anything new. Just take his standard answers to the press and replace "Al Qaeda" or "Saddam" with "Hezbollah."

Actually, it is pretty cool in Southern AZ today - the monsoons are giving us a nice gentle rain.

But the world stage under the Bushies is as dry and desolate as ever. Blair (the Poodle) is feeling some heat at home about his obsequiest behavior towards the Shrub. Condi's Brahms Recital didn't clam the flames of the Middle East, and the Repugs at home are as stupid as ever.

But, then so are the Demos - where is some leadership????

Goodness, I do fear for our Country.

Have a great weekend Fellow Justice bloggers - and especially, the Fitz Team!!

BEIRUT (Reuters) - The United States is sending Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice back to the Middle East on Saturday for talks on a United Nations resolution to end the 17-day war between Israel and Lebanese Hizbollah guerrillas.

The US military sprayed some 80m litres of Agent Orange on North and South Vietnam.

The aim was to destroy jungle foliage in order to find communist fighters more easily.

Agent Orange contained highly toxic dioxins which have since been blamed for causing cancers and other illnesses.

They have also been blamed for birth defects suffered by the children and even grandchildren of Vietnam veterans and Vietnamese civilians.

This has been strongly contested by the two main companies which made it - Dow and Monsanto - and the US government, the BBC's Bill Hayton in Hanoi says.

A team from New Zealand's Massey University has now shown that the group of 24 Vietnam veterans it tested suffered significant genetic damage, compared with a similar sized group of soldiers who did not serve in Vietnam, our correspondent says.

This may be crucial evidence in the lengthy legal battles still being waged in courts in the US and other countries to prove or disprove the link between Agent Orange and a legacy of illness across three continents, our correspondent says.

Shugs diplomacy-attempts were called air guitar diplomacy already here.
Rightfully.
We do not make ourselves anything forwards...
It lies in the interest of darkpower to further continue the war of Israel, supported by the USA, against Lebanon and Palestina to participate in order to provoke Syria and Iran, in this campaign thus the USA their goal of installing a "new order in the middle east"...
means: to prevent that Iran opens its €-based oil stock exchange and finally the entrance to the Persian oil is made possible.
That`s the truth!

In the news:

Chevron Profit Hits Record

The San Ramon-based company earned $4.35 billion, or $1.97 per share, for the three months ended in June. That represented an 18 percent increase from net income of $3.68 billion, or $1.76 per share, at the same time last year.

From Thinkprogress:

Eyeing ‘08, McCain drops reform.

Sen. John McCain’s name “is conspicuously absent” from a new bill addressing public financing of presidential campaigns; McCain was the lead sponsor of a virtually identical bill last year. McCain’s spokesperson “did not return calls seeking comment…but several people involved in discussions about the legislation said the senator’s absence was related to his widely expected bid for the presidency in 2008.”


“We’re for staying the course in Iraq
and the war on terror.” — Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN) shares the conservative national security message for 2006.

(However, I do realize oil is the major factor in this case.) But war is war, and IMHO, no matter what the reason and it is senseless!!

If the Gerbil & his Congress didn't spend the taxpayers money like drunken sailors, we wouldn't have this trillions of $$ debt in the U.S. Now, the next President & Congress will have to raise taxes, ino order to get the debt paid down!

Night Court was one of my favorites. It just that Notice of Appeal just reminded me if that show...

I was thinking about one of Basheert's comments about how many people are in denial about the economy and their dependence on the credit cards.. Well, she is right!

The creation of the credit cards started in 1951. In 1951, the Franklin National Bank in New York, issued the “Charge It” card.
Now, today, that same credit card has become the lifestyle for many Americans and a dependency.. In 2005, according to Consumer Action, the average American carried 11 credit cards. Now, it is up to 18 credit cards.. So, when we hear people say that they are doing o.k., the credit card is the dependency of their lifestyle and not the paycheck. Before the year 1951, it was hard earned money.. This is not the case.. When I said that the Gerbil and Baron are treating this country like a corporate business, they know that how many credit cards that the average Americans hold and know that the credit card is a dependency and lifestyle! After 9/11, the Gerbil told people to buy at the store and spend because he knows that the people will use their credit cards. That is why the Gerbil, Baron, and the oil companies can raise the gas prices and profit fom the consumer spending.. Unfortunately, they watched us like gerbils! For the people who are still in denial about the economy and the debt in this country, I bet they would get off the pot in Novemeber if all credit card companied decide to change the rules and decide to control what the card holder can or can't spend on their credit card.. See how fast they would want to the Gerbil removed from office!

But, the average American don't understand that! A gentleman who was an economist gave a lecture about the credit card vs. honest money! Also, the credt card debt is alos talked about in Robert Kiyosaki's books and Thomas Stanley's book "Millionaire Next Door" which I read. It is not just the credit cards that you mention but also the diner's card, department store credit cards, and so on...

And yes, refinancing has been a boom for homeowners to do. Thank god I never refinanced my home!
But., it really bothers me that majority of people especially college students are not being taught and educated about the money, finance, and the credit card. As Robert Kiyosaki says in his book "Rich Dad, Poor Dad," he said that his banker never asked for his report card. His banker only ask for his financial statements. Thanks to the uneducated derelict and incompentent leader, the Gerbil, a lot the American people have become financially uneducated rather than finanically intelligent! It is really sad how the Gerbil Admininstration are treated the people like indenture servants.. just throw a bone... Come November, we can turn it around and take back this country!

Yep, you did good. A home should never be used as a debt payoff tool.

I've seen commercials now advertising for people to refinance to payoff their:

Credit Cards
Cars
Boats
and more..

The greed is outrageous!

The thing is that they raised the rates on adjustable homes so that it would PURPOSELY generate refinances so they can clean up and make the economy look healthy.

There's all sorts of greedy schemes that the foreign FED Bank has got going all with the blessings of the gerbil syndicate!

It is to still keep Americans in debt. The Americans refinance to pay off their debt and then created another debt. I have gotten a lot of junk mail with refinance as well as on email! Again, all of the ads and infomercals about refinances are all avout keeping Americans enslaved in debt! It just programming people's minds, my friend!
Yes, the greed is outrageous!

I had the chace to hear Kiyosaki speak a few years back at a seminar.. All of his talks did coincide with his teachings from his book. I never heard his wife, Kim, speak. But, I look forward to one day hear her speak. And she is a smart cookie.. He married a smart woman!

No. my friend! According to Robert Kiyosaki that is a poor person's mentality. People need to learn to be financially intelligence. I am not talking about wealthy or rich! I'm talking about making their money work from them and not work for their money.. The more people depend on the credit card and re-financing, the more that they will always chase the dollar. I usually advise people to really read Kiyosaki books because he does talk about how people can get out of debt and certainly food, shelter, water, and so on is not going to do it.. People have to change their mind set and understand the Income and Expense report.. I sat down with someone that was finanical intelligence and didn't realize that my expense exceeded more of my income because of my lifestyle.. So, that has changed for me... But, I try to educated to people to be aware of their lifestyle and spending and the changing of the CPI (Consumer Price Index)...

Well, there always are, my friend, a will be in the future!

But, the real questions that people have to ask themselves, when are going to create a second source of income or passive porfolio as Kiyosaki says.. I do know that taxes will go up, C.O.L. (cost of living) is going up, and C.O.L. will always succeed the paycheck! From the age of 30-65, people's income started to level off (meaning pay raises. Sorry, I can't draw a graph) but at the age of 65, people live only one half or 1/3 of their income.. According to the social security administration 98% of people atthe age of 65, will be dead, broke, still working, or depending on family, friends, or other governmental programs.. So, yes, I aware that this country will be turmoil for quite some time.. But, people need to prepare for their future!
