Top o' the mornin'.....it was a really good week! My husband, a political skeptic at best, said that this was the first time that he felt that he was really glad to
see that our countrymen have not totally turned into sheep. It is a
momentous occasion when WE THE PEOPLE act on our privilege and responsibility to continue to support democracy by voting. It is our only real voice!

The fact that we have honest, intelligent and dedicated public servants like the Special Prosecutor is also helpful. Unfortunately, there aren't enough of you!

It will be most interesting to see what the spoiled child in the WH will do now that he has been given a "time out"! He does not take criticism very well, so time will tell. Let's hear it for the grownups who will now be able to have subpoena/oversight over this incompetent administration! If only part of what has already surfaced is true, I am dreading what will be uncovered when the investigations begin.

....and I know I speak for many that every time I hear of more casualties in Iraq, including all the innocent people living there, I
am physically sick. How can these people wake up in the morning, look
at the mirror and not wince at the awful consequences of their misbegotten ideology?

LONDON, Nov. 10, 2006
(AP / CBS)

Quote

"We believe that today the Arabs are much more useful to bin Laden if they are deployed in their home countries, particularly in the Middle East, to target western assets, western interests."
Rohan Gunaratna,
Institute for Defense and Strategic Studies in Singapore

(CBS) This story was written for CBSNews.com by Pakistan-based journalist Farhan Bokhari and CBS News correspondent Sheila MacVicar.

Intelligence agencies have been warned that al Qaeda may be planning to attack air and rail travel in Europe in actions that may occur during the busy holiday travel season, CBS News has learned exclusively.

In separate interviews with Arab and other intelligence sources, CBS News has been told that the warnings come from interrogations of al Qaeda suspects who recently left Afghanistan and Pakistan.

"One suspect said plans for repeating the Heathrow attempt (a reference to the failed 'liquid bomb' plot interrupted in August) were all prepared. It is now a matter of taking action," said one Arab official who asked not to be named because he is not authorized to speak to the media. "Al Qaeda's strategy appears to be raising the pressure in Europe."

In a move that has been puzzling intelligence agencies, al Qaeda has been withdrawing well-trained Arab fighters from the mountains and battlefields of Afghanistan.

In detailed interviews with Arab diplomats, intelligence sources and Pakistani and western officials, Arab members have been leaving Afghanistan for the past six months while handing over its militant activities in Afghanistan to that country's resurgent Taliban movement.

The new information helps to shed fresh light on a key mystery at the heart of al Qaeda's decision, first reported by CBS News in September, to withdraw its Arab members, fighters and logisticians from Afghanistan.

Rohan Gunaratna, head of terrorism research at Singapore's Institute for Defense and Strategic Studies, and the author of "Inside Al Qaeda; Global Network of Terror," said "We have seen that several hundred, perhaps five to six hundred al Qaeda members who were located on the Afghan-Pakistan border, have now left."

Gunaratna adds that these al Qaeda members have returned "to their own home countries, particularly to Iraq, and also to other Middle Eastern countries such as Saudi Arabia and Yemen. We have seen a shift in Al Qaeda's thinking, in strategy."

Some of those who returned to their native countries in the Arab world and were caught have told investigators that the orders only specified al Qaeda's decision for the Arabs to depart Afghanistan.

cbs news.com

It is probably nothing but I heard something the other day about troops in Iraq might be vulnerable to being surrounded if the insurgents/fighters decide to turn on them--since they are concentrated in Baghdad. Didn't think much of it, but now the above.

It is not easy to tell what is propaganda, "expert opinions" on the news, and sometimes I wonder if we are being set up (by desperate narcissist leaders) for marshal law or a policed state to clamp down on control, or avoid answering all the evil harm they've done to our country and the world.

Stop and think how many Middle Eastern countries now hate us for our actions and policy on Iraq and we are considered "occupiers"...(a term used by one of our own soldiers.) I think those in the Middle East have a more of an idea what is actually happening then the American people due to our wonderful media and government misleading us.

Top of the morning all
The cleaning of the swamp has begain and it's a messy job. Tony Snow is in denial about wacko Bolton and Rummy, Gonzo, Tenet have out standing warrants from Germany. Cheney is looking like a man on the edge. Bush just looks real bad and the bottle isn't helping this time.
I heard from Peaches this morning she said the troops set around watching Rummy's departure speech and they all gave him the finger. Fitz the kids are bad I might have to go to Afghan to keep them in line smile.
It does feel good to see some light at the end now as it was dark before. Have a great day and smile

Noshir S. Gowadia, a 62-year-old resident of Ha'iku, Maui, allegedly provided "substantial defense-related services for the People's Republic of China by agreeing to design and later designing a low observable cruise missile exhaust system nozzle capable of rendering the missile less susceptible to detection and interception," according to the U.S. attorney's office.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Ken Sorenson, who is prosecuting the case for the government, declined comment, pending a status conference in the case scheduled for today.

As Waxman does his investigations, Germany has warrents and now the soldiers in jail that followed orders will all come to light as there will be no need for impeachments as all will resign. Yes this case involves Bush/Cheney/Rummy/Tenet as well as Halliburton and others. Also look for Joe sixpack to be called as to his part of corruption. Remember that kiss wasn't for nothing.

PS. I have a nagging feeling that there's something that the Republicans told the Democrats about 9/11 that made the Democrats back off from Impeachment...BIG TIME

This was clear when John Conyers did an about face on Impeachment.

quote:
Conyers seems to have forgotten that last December he laid out the grounds for impeachment in a 350 page long report called "The Constitution in Crisis: The Downing Street Minutes and Deception, Manipulation, Torture, Retribution and Cover-ups in the Iraq War" and later updated to add "illegal domestic surveillance."

..AND THE PEOPLE CONTINUE IN THE DARK ABOUT THE TRUTH OF 9/11..

And to Legitamse that Partisan coverup called the 9/11 Investigation the Democrats are planning to implement those recommendations which would further put our nation on the path of Fascism...

Those goals are Unconstitutional.

GEF I know how you feel but remember it would prove what the Republicans said eye for eye if they start out with impeachment. The evidence will allow for the impeachment without the Dems having to do it. As for the group efford of 9/11 commission well all will not be done. Your looking at the Clintons to much. You know as well as I do you keep your friends close but your enemies closer. Each side is playing their cards or like Fitz said chess moves. Right now the Republicans are on the losing end of the game. Said some are playing both sides for their own interest but look at the big picture. Dems know they have to " show Americans what they asked for by voting for them". One has to play smart not rush in to make mistakes. Look at Joe six pack saying his a Dem now only to get info for the Republicans. Politics will always be the same the smarter man wins. Karl Rove did just that by using religious people and GOD's name and he lost. Dems have to be careful and smart not rush into things blindly for short term results. I notice you don't like the Clintons but remember their just two and one might have the respect of the world as the other is Senator but we have alot of other people who have power now.

Jackie,

Just remember that there's some Legislation that's causing our Nation to teeter on Nazi Germany and this must be Nullified and our Constitution Restored!

Bad Unconstitutional stuff:

1. Patriot Act
2. Bush's 2007 Military Commissions Act
3. Habeus Corpus and Posse Comitatus must be reinstated
4. DOMESTIC NSA and Internet Taping Wiretaps must stop completely.

...and All of these laws came about because of 9/11. But 9/11 needs to have a real legitimate investigation to prove who and what was responsible for it because the current commission investigation was a real whitewash that the American people cannot swallow.

It's a BS story and 90% know it.

9/11 was an Inside Job and the Evidence collected by normal citizens and compiled is pointing towards that!

There's no more going to sleep for the people Mrs Jackie!

GEF you are right about 9/11. I was living in Jersey when it happen and yes the evidence was there and it didn't make since with the story that was told. Even Fitz knows it was something wrong with that made up story. We will find the answers. But if go keep fighting among ourselves as to dig for the truth we'll never get their.
Remember we're working on 5 years of corruption and destroying our constitution as well as the preplain events that Bush/Cheney/Rummy/GOP needed to invade Iraq. No one saying we have alot to clean up but I'm saying if we continue to fight among ourselves no one wins. You have so much good information and your really in tune to the problems but don't come down on everyone. Don't try everyone into an enemy or we'll have no one left. That's all I mean.

US leadership is a sham. The US is the most threatening country in the world according to an accurate poll conducted by Angusreid at
http://www.angus-reid.com/polls/...em&itemID=13752
America: The Greatest Menace to Global Stability

United States 33%
Iran 18%
China 12%
Israel 12%
Iraq 11%
North Korea 9%
Other Country 5%
Russia 1%

Ziocrats and Ziocons have turned the US upside down where America no longer needs a Constitution or Bill of Rights just like Israel. The Talmudic Militant Zionists that run the think tanks and are integrated into the US intelligence and defense apperatus are running the country into the ground. American goyim seem to be perfectly happy with being the ONLY nation to support war attrocities, illegal weapons use of cluster bombs, white phosphorus, cluster mines, and weapons of mass pain and suffering. Since all gentiles (goyim) are subhuman, it doesn't bother the Zionists in the least.

The mass punishment of Lebanese, both Christian and Muslim, and the destruction of the entire infrastructure was met with a 410-8 vote in the house and 100-0 vote in the Senate while the rest of the world voted unanimously for condemnation of Israel. Once again, the US proves it is for monsterous acts of aggression. It is no wonder most Americans don't care about wars of aggression and slaughter of innocent people.

The "news" is completely filtered, so unless people tune into British, Australian or Canadian broadcasts, we will remain an ignorant nation.

Sadly, this comment seems to be the truth..from Rawstory commnets.

New York- The United States blocked a resolution condemning Israeli artillery attacks on the Gaza Strip in a vote Saturday at the United Nations Security Council in New York. The US ambassador to the UN, John Bolton, rejected the Qatar- sponsored resolution at a special sitting of the UN body.

My suspicion is that now the Democrats know that if the Truth does get out to the American people and they find out that not only their own Government but the Pentagon and foreign agencies were involved, that it will cause a Civil War in this country!

However the Immigration issue may wind up doing that!

And I submit to you that a Civil war has already been going on...there's just no shooting yet.

If you read about the Civil war and the French Revolution you'll understand what I mean!

Is it true that certain people have had the ability to "spy" or tap into almost everyone's business and personal lives, then candidates are "chosen" and money funneled into their campaigns for election? The problem being the candidates might have secrets or character issues that they can be blackmailed or bribed into doing these group of certain people's bidding through Congress and/or the WH? Which might be why we have pedophiles, closet gays (nothing wrong with being gay, but stand up for yourself), corruption, such liars and so many 'keeping up with the Joneses types' in our government?

The problem being certain people/ countries need to butt out of the U.S. government and politics, spying, brainwashing?

A word or two about Vietnam Vets

Yes my father was a Vietnam Vet, yes he died young just like most of them

What really upset most Vietnam Vets was this WAR was once called a conflict, then police action, it was war. Most Vietnam vets came back and did not talk about anything or let anyone know they were in Vietnam. Yes my Dad did not want us to let anyone know he was in "Nam". Yes my Dad came back with a lot of demons eating him up just like most of the Vets from that war. Yes my Dad had some things bother him like, the smell of Weed Killers, he was sure he had been sprayed with agent orange many times. These are the Vets that this country could not make up for, the way they were treated over there, the way they were treated when they came back. My Dad, like most of them drank themselves to death.

Please not let us repeat any of these mistakes with our current Vets coming back........Please!

When in Chicago hit the Chicago Cultural Center first (corner of Randolf and Michigan) It is accross the street from the Smurfit Stone Building (the diamond shaped top building in a lot of my pictures) The Chicago Cultural Center has all kinds of coupon books and maps. It is also a really neat building inside, and there is always art exhibits from local artists going on. You can also visit Milleneum Park accross the street. Or walk through the cultural center and exit on Washington Street, get on the South side and get the 151 Sheridan Bus up north to Lincoln Park Zoo, Conservatory etc. No el's (or subways) go that far up North, must do the bus here.

I think I would like to see first The Chicago Cultural Center since I have a love for art, dance, and theater.. I have heard some many places to see especially hearing jazz music. I only see jazz music for free in the summertime. Alot of spots have jazz music plating in the summertime..

And the zoo sounds like fun. I have a friend that went to Africa for a month and showed me pictures of lions. I only want to see them at a zoo and not see them up close and personal like my friends had. Is that good dance performances in Chicago? The last one that I went to was in NY.

In the summer there is a week of Jazz, a week of gospel etc. in Grant Park. Also at Taste of Chicago there are plenty of free bands on about 3 different stages. I don't see dance, sorry can't help you there. But the Chicago Cultural Center is Free. Accross the Street and about a half a block South is the Art Institute, here you can spend a whole day. If you are in at the end of August the Air and Water show is up by Lincoln Park Zoo, actually Fullerton Beach, which is the name of the road as well. Children's Memorial Hospital is also on Fullerton, and the Surgical Museum which is quite interesting to see an Iron Lung, and early X-Ray machines (almost everyone got X-rayed if you saw them). The Peggy Notabart (spelling?) is also accross Fullerton from the Zoo. The elephants used to be on the North side of the Zoo, the Farm on the South and the Lions in the middle by the penguins.

Cultural Center for free? Well, the Cultural Cneters certainly are not free where I am. Everything cost you. Only local organizations will have sometime a cultural event on a weekend. But, mostly it is during the summer.. So, there is a week of jazz and a week of gospel? Well, when I mention jazz in the summer, it is usually every Wednesday evening from 3 months. It would be nice if there was gospel, or different culture of music in the park for free. When an economy took a nose dive, it affects a lot of events that people went to for free...It would be nice to travel to different states to go sightseeing and to appreciate the different areas in each states. A friend of mine took a group of friend on a month trip across the states in a motor coach. So, I have picture of some of the states that they travel.. So, I get to appreciate America..

Well you can see why some of us are worried about Daley and the US Attorney going after him, he has done so much for the city.

The orange fountain in one of my pictures is from Chicagoween, City Hall is in the Background with a green roof (Daley turned the roof of City Hall into a garden, the green thing) The Fountain is on Daley Plaza, called Pumpkin Plaza for the event. They have a Circus ( Midnight Circus) do three shows a day on weekends and a few throughout the week. This Chicagoween started with Daley.

Alrighty All,

what's been going on here today? No infighting Geffy;-) as I have seen enough of that recently- even in some peace orgs, for heaven's sake...if you're concerned, you should come to dc and be griping at them in person anyway-like I do:-D (It works a little faster)

They haven't been elected for a week yet-

Sheesh Fitz and SBP, don't say yours truly here has no patience with the leak case;-)


The very best news to me was Rummy, Gonzo and "other Bush adm officials" will be charged with war crimes. Duh! Are the Germans the only ones who learned the democracy lesson, oh-so-well?

Iraq in Fragments was very sad-no bloodshed-simple truths told by ordinary folks, including a couple of young boys how much the war scared them. Their living conditions as a result of this war should make the repugs hang their heads in shame. Dubya you are a war criminal and so are your supporters

And Jackie I hope you are right-on bout that Lieberman-he is covering something. Why else would the repubs pay for his slimy campaign?

Resume day tomorrow-needed some tweaking;-)

I just took a peek on your blog of Chicsgoween.. It looks nice especailly the water that is the color of a pumpkin. But, I understand whre you are coming from regarding Fitz. But, despite Daley has done a lot for Chicago, Fitz has a job to do. If Daley committed a crime then justicce needs to be served. Fitz got a lof of heat when he indicted the Governor's buddy Rezko. Fitz has an important job but that important job with differcult choices...

Al Gore to return to power

GEF, Roger, Tom Heneghan and the rest can take a bow.......

Your day has finally come.

And the neo-con hackjobs are all in their illegitimate smear attack mode about it....

Al Gore returns....and all neo criminals hate him most of all....

" What makes this scandalous is that Skadden Arps is tied to the law firm Greenberg Taurig A.I.G., General Electric Capital and the corporate filth that helped overthrow the Presidential election of 2000 through bribes and payoffs aka keeping Albert Gore Jr. from being inaugurated U.S. President.

Greenberg Taurig also linked to the Chicago Board of Options and the pre-9/11 Short Positions established electronically through the Life Exchange in the United Kingdom. (American Airlines Put Options)
Obama, whose father's name was Hussein Onyago Obama, worked for British Intelligence in Kenya and was a bagman for the corrupt Kenyatta Regime.

Accordingly like father like son.

Both Obama Jr. and Obama Sr. were and are still British Intelligence Agents.

Question: Is Obama Jr. still a closet Moslem?

Ask his MOSSAD handlers.

Of course, Obama, an African-American, like his partner in crime Hillary MEGA-MOSSAD Rodenhurst Clinton, would be Electoral College Train Wrecks in the Year 2008 US Presidential Elections.

They could not carry any red states and would probably lose blue states including Pennsylvania, Michigan, and yes folks, even California.

Don't be fooled. Obama is bought by Newsweek Magazine and British Intelligence, as of course, is Hillary Lesbian-in-the-closet Clinton.

P.S. - Message to Peter Finn aka Feinberg, Howard Dean's plan worked and he is the hero. And Mr. Finn, the Democratic Party base is going to nominate and re-elect Albert Gore Jr. with or without you.

The only 800-pound Gorilla in the 2008 race is an overdrawn Mossad checkbook. "
Report November 11

Take a bow!!!!

Push to pick prosecutor told

Ryan, Rove both had idea, ex-senator says.

Former U.S. Sen. Peter Fitzgerald suggested Thursday that then-Gov. George Ryan tried to influence the selection of the U.S attorney in Chicago at about the same time prosecutors had questioned him about wrongdoing while he was secretary of state.

In a speech, Fitzgerald said Edward McNally, an attorney who was helping represent Ryan amid the growing scandal, was among those who applied for the powerful U.S. attorney's post.

"There was an effort that I perceived [that] they were trying to influence the selection actually with one of George Ryan's legal defense team members," Fitzgerald said in remarks to the Illinois Campaign for Political Reform. "But I worked very hard to make sure that wouldn't happen."

What hope has America got if, even for a time, none of you can stick together?

Probably none. You're all so arrogant and wrapped up in your own personal agenda's none of you right or left can see the forest for the trees.

How about taking the negativity and using it for something positive for once.

Like a way out of a mess the country in is at the moment, especially in Iraq.

i think it's kind of silly to think september 11th wasn't a planned and executed attack. what i find intolerable is the lack of due diligence by the powers that be at the time. whether intentional, out of sheer arrogance or sheer ineptitude, or just plain stupidity. when georgie porgie objected to the formation of the 9-11 commission you knew damn well there was complicity.



The collapse of the Twin Towers and WTC7 came about as a result of a controlled demolition. Ask yourself the following questions:

Why the molten metal seen pouring from the towers?

Why the complete and total pulverisation of the concrete which can only come about as the result of explosions?

Why the freefall speed of the collapse of the three buildings, and not the pancake effect that happens when high rise buildings collapse due to the force of gravity alone?

Jet fuel burns at 1800 degrees. Steel melts at 2800 degrees, and the steel of the twin towers were fireproofed. Why, then, did they collapse?

Dr James Fetzer and Dr Steven Jones and Dr Judy Wood give the answers at scholars for 9/11 truth.com

See also “Loose Change” for free on Google video and Alex Jones’ “Terrorstorm” (likewise).

LIHAP (let it happen)

Or:

MIHAP (made it happen)

It was a controlled demolition job. That proves it was an inside job. They made it happen.

9/11 WAS AN INSIDE JOB!

this kind of intown revitalization usualy starts with the city's planning and zoning..and city planners..the mayor and others just run in spread their peacock feathers..and take credit for it....
look for a mayor among this group if you want the things they do..and like Fitz says if they can't say no to graft..
look to get them out of office....

Top of the mornin'
another beautiful day
to work on the changes that will put our country back together again.

GrandmaNuk said...
Top o' the mornin'.....it was a really good week! My husband, a political skeptic at best, said that this was the first time that he felt that he was really glad to
see that our countrymen have not totally turned into sheep. It is a
momentous occasion when WE THE PEOPLE act on our privilege and responsibility to continue to support democracy by voting. It is our only real voice!

DREAM ON, FOLKS!!!

And Jackie and global evil doer fighter, I'm glad that not everyone's partying over there.

Quite frankly, what happened in America last week does not constitute the Second Coming. At best it is nothing more than a temporary reprieve, unless the American people can really be galvanised into preventing the (by now, I fear) irreversible worlwide slide into a global fascist dictatorship which is being spearheaded by the Bush administration.

“It's analogous to a fire starting in our home, we call the fire department (the Democrats), they show up and instead of putting out the fire they start barbecuing hot dogs on skewers. They have already sworn to protect the Bush crime family and its associated gaggle of villains from any form of criminal proceedings. How is this in any form a step forward in getting justice for the victims of 9/11?
9/11 truth has just reached critical mass awakening, the vast majority of Americans don't believe the official story, and it cannot be allowed to die as a result of the naive apathy of trusting the treacherous Democrat leadership.
We simply cannot allow the movement to lose momentum just because the tires have been changed on the juggernaut of the one party system. The fire of 9/11 truth is dying down, we just need to add more wood to the fire!
We cannot let the enemy snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.
The dictatorial martial law powers that Bush has put in place must immediately be repealed and the criminals responsible for Iraq and 9/11 investigated for treason, otherwise the same gang of crooks will simply orbit back into power in 15 years like the Iran-Contra crowd, and we'll still be left with the architecture of fascism to be exploited by a Hillary Clinton or a John McCain in 2008.
To put it bluntly, since Tuesday we have noticed the wind being taken out of the sails of 9/11 truth - and we are pissed off about it.”

Go Maureen!

"After 9/11, Americans had responded to bellicosity, drawn to the image, as old as the Western frontier myth, of the strong father protecting the home from invaders. But this time, many voters, especially women, rejected the rough Rovian scare and divide tactics."

This country acts like the worst co-dependent locked into a alcoholic, abusive relationship. We, in fact, do know the answers and the big elephant sitting in the room. The majority of U.S. citizens not to mention the countries that also lost citizens on 9/11 have the courage, conscience and right to demand the truth and justice against such evil. It is time to stop playing "victim" and false revenger and do the right thing. Tell the truth and demand justice for the lies and actions. Stop the co-dependent dysfunction and reaction to insecure cowards that care not one whit about the health/futures of our country and the planet's children.

Human beings were created unique for a purpose, not to be made into a "cookie cutter" robots to be played with and discarded at the whim of evil dysfunctional cowards. Playing both sides of a conflict only shows the manipulation of desperate, selfish evil. Stop enabling evil-doers.

thanks for that anonymous at 8.09 am. See also her second story in loco sit.

She says: "A recent study found that the testosterone of American men has been dropping for 20 years, but in Republican Washington, it was running amok, and not in a good way. Men who had refused to go to an untenable war themselves were now refusing to find an end to another untenable war that they had recklessly started."

sWell, that explains everything.

Top o' the mornin' all...

Anthony...aren't we just a wee bit
cynical this morning? Give us a break here! I would rather put the brakes on retribution at this point than run the risk of pissing
off the voters that brought these
majorities into office. It's time
to show the country that we can bring about fair and just legislation and action and leave the punishment of these evil people
to a fair conclusion. I have little doubt that there are many in
house chairmanships as well as the Senate who are itching to put the Bush administration's feet to the fire. I, personally, would rather see this done in an environment of
inclusiveness and bipartisanship than further animosity as the results will carry far more weight.

In the event that you might think
I am merely making excuses...I watched every minute of Rep. Conyers (from my own state of MI)
during the hearings last year. I followed the statements of all of those called to those hearings, including Bruce Fein and Jonathan Turley, two of the country's outstanding Constitutional lawyers.

The country's business came to a standstill during the misbegotten impeachment of Bill Clinton. We have too much to deal with at this juncture to waste one minute of it
with partisanship.

If you take a page from PJF, making your case slowly, methodically and with fairness, the results will be far more satisfying in the end.

Hi just popped in this morning. Yes I know the US Attorney's office must do their job. But with so much blatent and questionable activity that has been going on over at Cook County, for years and years, you would think they would spend more time there.

Anyhow SPB when you come to Chicago make sure to go to Greek Town on Halsted Street (just North of the Eisinhower expressway), If you go north down Halsted Street another interesting Neighborhood where the Gay Pride Parade is held, and 10th County District Commisioner heterosexual Mike Quigly is always in the parade in his district. This is a gay area with many restaurants, shops etc. and population of gay people.
If you go South on Halsted Street, South of the Eisenhower expressway you will first come to the University of Illinois Chicago Campus, further South and you are in Chinatown, further south and you are in Daley's neighborhood growing up(Bridgeport), and not too far from Cellular Field where the Chicago White Sox play. South of that is the still more Chicago Neighborhoods, until you get way South say 111th Street and you are in Roseland (the neighborhood where the disciples originated) Just East of Roseland is Pullman which is a nice area to visit. Pullman made a whole neighborhood for his workers (who built the Pullman railroad cars) most of the neighborhood is intact complete with cobblestone streets. Make sure to visit the Hotel Florence, it is a nice place to eat. It was named after Pullman's daughter. A few years ago one of the Pullman Factory buildings burned down here.

Good Morning All,

From article sbp posted:

In his most extensive remarks on the appointment, Fitzgerald also said Thursday he picked New Yorker Patrick Fitzgerald as U.S. attorney for Chicago in 2001 despite a warning by Karl Rove, President George Bush's top political strategist, not to go outside Illinois for a candidate.

Awww, Rover didn't want Fitz in that position? Advised against it, even? I'm sure that really hurt Fitz' feelings that Rover didn't feel comfortable hehe

Cold and rainy in dc area today-glad we got a beautiful day yesterday-I see the Washington Post AGAIN failed to mention 50 military family members from all over the country at yesterday event. That's OK Post-we'll own you when its said and done... alternative media would be the place for me;-) They have been the only ones telling the truth for the past hundred years W has reigned (seems like it anyway;-)

E I saw your previous note about professors heehee (btw, age range for T 38-48 ;-)

Is it true that certain people have had the ability to "spy" or tap into almost everyone's business and personal lives, then candidates are "chosen" and money funneled into their campaigns for election? The problem being the candidates might have secrets or character issues that they can be blackmailed or bribed into doing these group of certain people's bidding through Congress and/or the WH? Which might be why we have pedophiles, closet gays (nothing wrong with being gay, but stand up for yourself), corruption, such liars and so many 'keeping up with the Joneses types' in our government?

The problem being certain people/ countries need to butt out of the U.S. government and politics, spying, brainwashing?"
