The troops need some "warm and fuzzies" like the folks in Washington D.C. enjoy - don't they? (Too bad the troops don't get the same Secret Service protection, benefits, retirement, and healthcare.) Railroaders and corporate execs could surely contribute chefs, and recipes for fine cuisine..... and if not their vendors will supply them - FOR FREE (with a $$$ contract, of course.) Tons of food from corporate and elite parties is thrown away. Perhaps they could send it to the troops for Christmas?
Wouldn't that be generous?

The only way they would get invited to the white house is if the war was moved there. The troops will get the usual KBR Listeria Buffet. Cheney should remember he's not the only one who's got a gun.

Instead, their children will probably end up in some "nut-house" government, tax-force-funded institution, under-educated, addicted or in poverty, getting their blood checked for "science" -- force-medicated, and guinea-pigged for the medical "societies" ..... and bill-boarded at "ELI-LILY's" site as the Poster Child for "HOPE."

So do I, Calamity: Maybe the Lobbyists can purchase some sort of justice with their international/banking corporate backing, and profiteering designs: - they seem to have a free "reign" when it comes to "crafting laws." Rest Assured: their bank accounts are well guarded, their children's futures secured: with American children they care NOTHING about: spent at war on the front lines, guarding their booty.

How to cook up a bioweapon; a "Stealth Disabler": Add 3 parts mycoplasma and one part borreliae to a teeny-tiny hard bodied tick. Pharm them back and forth between livestock, rodents, and ticks, until the mycoplasmal virulence antigens "take" to the borreliae, and ignore the local seabirds.

Then ya got both a permanent brain infection, plus the arthritis. The victims are doubly disabled.

Then blame the victims.

Oh, and Have a Nice Day. ☺

This immeasurably spoiled child/(p)resident refuses to give up his pipe dream (or should I say oilpipe dream) of an American foothold on the Arabian peninsula. He has gambled our children, our financial treasure, the lives of half a million Iraqis and our good name, but WILL NOT even consider the bold-faced fact that he gambled and lost due to arrogance, ignorance and incompetence. He is a pitiful, tragic consequence of overindulgence and has never been held accountable for his actions and behavior. The American people spoke to him on November 7th, yet he continues with this misadventure as though it was merely a bump in the road.

The newly elected majority has stated that the funds will not be cut off to stop this maniac from further harming this country and other countries with his incompetent bullheadedness. Our only salvation may just be this option!

I knew that wasn't for the troops, I seen Bobblehead on the tube yesterday stuttering about the Christmas trees..."the trees are red this year and of course, green because of um, um, the the trees are green."

The Bushes will be busy with 50 Holiday parties. Think they adopted a poor family for the season?

I think the Bushes would be shocked at how many people in this country that do not have a fancy dinner or any gifts because they simply do not have money. They do not ask to be adopted, give can goods when the kids come around to collect for the Christmas boxes, are more concerned about heating their home or even getting it winterized.

I bet it is in the millions, we didn't use to be like this. We are part of the "strong economy" that isn't so strong.

Does the President and his Mrs. even know how many of the troops' families have to go to food banks every week to eat anyway? Does he think because he is pictured phoning 10 soldiers after he fed his gut that we all should think how compassionate he is about his troops? Wonder if he thinks about the 9/11 victims' families Christmas? About our troops or allies' families that have an empty chair at the table or the families that will be told their loved one is never coming home? Does he think about the hundreds of thousands of lives he has destroyed? No, he has 50 parties/events that are more pressing. "Deck the Halls and Welcome All"

Phoenix airport to test X-ray screening

PHOENIX - Sky Harbor International Airport here will test a new federal screening system that takes X-rays of passenger's bodies to detect concealed explosives and other weapons.

The technology, called backscatter, has been around for several years but has not been widely used in the U.S. as an anti-terrorism tool because of privacy concerns.

The Transportation Security Administration said it has found a way to refine the machine's images so that the normally graphic pictures can be blurred in certain areas while still being effective in detecting bombs and other threats.

Good Morning,

Fitz that should make everyone mad. I got an article from a parent and she said her son was told to go on patrol he's a 23 year old-Marine. The five supposed to go "just said no-forget it-they were not going on any suicide mission, go ahead and lock them up cause they'd be safer in the brig. One said "yeah we're already in Iraq, where's the worst place you can send us?" (They didn't go, either)

Stupid Bush-illegal war breaks down military discipline and moral. He would know that if he had studied anything about war.

Jackie I hope all the troops are getting enough. Soldiers tell me the food was edible barely.

Gee I would popped in last night had I known everyone was up late;-)

CalamityJane, I'm happy to hear about your car deal. The troop I told smiled.

mfso will be in DC Jan 3 and 4 making sure the new elects don't drop the ball...

Have a great friday all, I'm meeting a gf for coffee later today in the city-sun is shining, but might snow later today.

President Bush's face expressed fear in dozens of different ways at his press conference in Amman. For President Bush, fear looks like a slight widening of the eyes together with a slightly crooked half-grimace in his mouth. It is a look that sent shivers through my spine when I saw it in the C-SPAN video--the look of a man who not only does not understand the answers to the questions being asked, but does not understand the reason they are being asked in the first place.

Mr. President, Have Pity on the Working Man

We've taken all you've given
But it's gettin' hard to make a livin'
Mr. President have pity on the working man

We're not asking you to love us
You may place yourself high above us
Mr. President have pity on the working man

I know it may sound funny
But people ev'ry where are runnin' out of money
We just can't make it by ourself

It is cold and the wind is blowing
We need something to keep us gong
Mr. President have pity on the working man

Maybe you've cheated
Maybe you've lied
Maybe you have finally lost your mind
Maybe you're only thinking 'bout yourself

Too late to run. Too late to cry now
The time has come for us to say good-bye now
Mr. President have pity on the working man

AP: Pelosi Taps Reyes for House Intel Chair


By Justin Rood - December 1, 2006, 10:32 AM

AP reports:

House Speaker-to-be Nancy Pelosi has chosen a Porder-Patrol-agent-turned-congressman to take over the House Intelligence Committee, according to congressional aides.

The two aides, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they considered it an internal party issue, confirmed that Democratic leaders are contacting congressional and other political officials to tell them Rep. Silvestre Reyes, D-Texas, will be the new chairman of the committee when Democrats take control in January.

Sky Television and the British Broadcasting Corp. reported that the Italian, Mario Scaramella, tested positive for a significant amount of polonium-210, the rare radioactive isotope that was found in Litvinenko's body.

Scaramella met with Litvinenko at a sushi bar in London on Nov. 1 -- the day the former intelligence agent first reported the symptoms that ultimately led to his death at a central London hospital.

Bush Top Gun?

A short flash film on Bush's own military service, done with a little humor. Did you know he was promoted to Lt faster than any military person in American history? Yet the media never questioned his very questionable military service record. He has been photographed wearing medals he did not earn-I can't believe the generals would listen to him without serious dissent. Might be a different ball game if there were more female generals.

And let's not forget the today is AIDS awareness day. I had gooten an email marking Dec 1.

The holiday menu? And you know that I would never be invited by the Gerbil and company. I'll stick hamburger and beans, thank you very much.. We know that it is a selective people that will be attending that event and grubbing on the food. And guess who has to pay for this? The taxpayers! Waste of money. He should have save money by getting some McRib sandwiches... And the Gerbil can have that expensive holiday menu and the troops get crapola. That really concerns me.
