Elections Will Leave Bush An Early Lame Duck

"On desks around the West Wing sit digital clocks counting down the days and hours left in the Bush presidency, reminders to the White House staff to use the time left as effectively as possible. As of 8 a.m. today, those clocks will read 825 days, four hours. But if the elections go the way pollsters and pundits predict, they might as well read 20 days.

At least that would be the end of George W. Bush's presidency as he has known it. If Democrats win one or both houses of Congress on Nov. 7, the result will transform the remainder of Bush's time in office and dramatically shift the balance of power in Washington."

"Most worrisome to the White House is the subpoena power that Democrats would gain with a majority in the House or Senate. For years, Republicans have been mostly deferential in scrutinizing the Bush administration, but Democrats are eager to reexamine an array of issues, such as Vice President Cheney's energy task force, the Jack Abramoff scandal and preparations for the Iraq war." <more>

IMHO, subpoena power is the only thing to effectively combat evildoers entrenched in our government.

Good Morning Fitzie and Justice Bloggers...

I read the same article this morning. And for the past year, I have been going to bed dreaming of Subpeona Power!!!

I can smell it, it is so close...I can almost touch it...ahhhh that somewhat elusive Subpeona Power is now within sublime reach...we have to keep fighting for a win on November 7th because the game isn't over until the fat lady sings...

But I hope the fat lady has sung in the series last night...GO Cards!!! Great win last night and St. Louis Heart You...LOL

MSM tube news and local red states' news stations busy kissing Republicans' butts and trying to make sure the same old (do nothing but steal, lie, cheat, corrupt, sell the country out) get elected again.

The shrills have to do that because they will be shown for the liars they've become and their big corporate owners might not get those huge perks anymore.
Oust the liars.

Oh yeah,

I smell subpoenas for the Gerbil when the new guns take over the House. No rubber stamping, no CYA, no licking the Gerbil's boots, or pleasing the Gerbil. So, I look forward to November 7 to take back this country and remove the Gerbil!!!

Yes, I'm looking forward to taking back this country too! Too many years of corruption and scandals. We need change and we can get it by voting and throwing out the trash!! :)

People, I don't want to be a wet blanket, I hate these creeps....but I have one word Diebold. Are you ready to protest? What are you going to do? I listened to Patrick Kennedy Jr. a couple of weeks ago in WA state. The election fraud is "really scarey" and he was not at all upbeat about this election.

You have linked to graphics on a site that doesn't belong to you.

You would think that a lawyer should know better than to steal bandwidth by linking to graphics that 1) aren't his.. and 2) are on someone else's site. from http://www.tipz.net/Bandwidth.htm

Bandwidth Stealing

Information (files) loaded to or from servers is called bandwidth. Every time you upload a file to your ISP, surf the web or download a video, you are using bandwidth.

Bandwidth is limited. Why? Because it actually is a bunch of wires or fibers connecting servers to the global network. And wires can only carry so much data. When someone attempts to get more data than can be handled by the wire, the transmission of the data is slowed down.

Some ISPs limit the amount of data that a site can use during a particular time period. As an example, an ISP might limit you to 1gb of data per month for your flat fee, then charge you an extra $10 for each additional gigabyte. Some of the more obnoxious ISPs actually just block transmissions when the bandwidth is exceeded (effectively putting that site out of business for a time).

It's common practice to load most of the images, sound files, videos and documents in your web on your own site. This excludes, of course, advertising banners which are rotated and some specific documents and images which are supposed to be loaded from a central location.

It's common among amateurs and beginners to link to images and other files directly to some other server instead of putting them on their local server. Sometimes they just don't know better, sometimes they are just lazy, and sometimes they've just run out of space at their free host.

So not only do they "steal" the image (it is probably copyrighted and they are copying it without permission each time the web site is loaded) they "steal" the bandwidth!!

This is extraordinarily bad form, it's tasteless and it should be avoided like the plague.

In some extreme cases, unscrupulous "webmasters" (I use the term loosely) link to large zip files on other servers to give their own visitors extra features. This often occurs with sites containing downloadable software, wallpaper and desktop themes.

DO NOT do this without permission! If you do, you are a thief and you are costing someone else money and aggravation.
