"Meet Blackwater USA, the powerful private army that the U.S. government has quietly hired to operate in international war zones and on American soil. Its contacts run from deep inside the military and intelligence agencies to the upper echelons of the White House. Blackwater is the elite Praetorian Guard for the “global war on terror,” with its own military base, a fleet of twenty aircraft, and 20,000 soldiers at the ready. Run by a multimillionaire Christian conservative who bankrolls President Bush and his allies, its forces are capable of overthrowing governments, and yet most people have never heard of Blackwater."

Wonder how many of our sons and daughters in uniform died at the hands of these guys in Iraq? At the very least, they created chaos and such disrespect in Iraq for our troops that are paid a fraction of what these people get payed.

“If the Republicans lose in 2008, they will leave office armed and dangerous. Blackwater is the utterly gripping and explosive story of how the Bush Administration has spent hundreds of millions of public dollars building a parallel corporate army, an army so loyal to far right causes it constitutes nothing less than a Republican Guard."

Checks and balances out of control.

VERY GOOD TEAK.SINCE BLACKWATER USA
IS BEING CHARACTERIZED AS A "POWERFUL PRIVATE ARMY" ONE WOULD THINK THAT THEY AND OTHER SIMILAR ENTITIES FALL UNDER THE UMBRELLA OF AN
UNREGULATED MILITIA.
THIS IS A CONSTITUTIONAL ISSUE.
OPEN THE SEASON ON THE MERCS.

S.P.FITGERALD:A SPECIAL GRAND JURY SHOULD BE CONVIENED AT ONCE TO INVESTIGATE AND PURGE THE PRIVATE CONTRACTOR SECTOR.

That might be a little over done on Blackwater. The owner might be totally loyal but his merry band of mercenaries are just that, mercenaries. Loyalties of those folks can change if/when the money dries up.

Teak, you answered that right here, in the last sentence:

"Wonder how many of our sons and daughters in uniform died at the hands of these guys in Iraq? At the very least, they created chaos and such disrespect in Iraq for our troops that are paid a fraction of what these people get payed."

The luck of the Irish is with you and your team. But in this case truth wins lucks comes when the White House crime wave falls. I saw another picture of you today and a lady with blonde hair which one of the ladies was she? You guys have time now to identify each member. Try getting a group picture with the phone camera.

I wonder how much it would cost to rent one of these to scare the bloody living daylights out of the local gangbangers who use an empty building in my neighborhood for target practice. . . .

Now eleven million later, I was sitting at the bar
I'd bought the house a double, and the waitress a new car
Pat's Spokesman's in the corner, trying to catch my eye
The Prosecutor's right beside me with his hand upon my thigh
The moral of this story, it's simple but it's true
Hey the stars might lie, but the numbers never do

I feel lucky, oh oh oh, I feel lucky, yeah
Hey Pat, hey Rand, boys, you don't have to fight
Hot dog, I'm feeling lucky tonight

I feel lucky, brrrrr, I feel lucky, yeah
Think I'll flip a coin, I'm a winner either way
Mmmmmm, I feel lucky today

I couldn't resist, Fitzie...This dilberation has me a little silly this morning...LOL

das so funny QZ;-D

Oh dears, look what happened yesterday in one Ohio city...

The key witness in Carole Squire’s challenge to the November election likened Franklin County’s voting procedures to the 2000 presidential debacle in Florida and said yesterday that the vote total in the Domestic Relations Court race should be set aside.

"In some respects, it’s worse then Bush versus Gore," former Harvard fellow Rebecca Mercuri said in her testimony before a special magistrate at the Court of Appeals.

"There were so many egregious disparities in the (conduct of the election), it is beyond any experience I ever had."


And to ES&S claiming their machine numbers are more accurate than using actual voter signature counts:

"As far as I’m concerned, you have no way of knowing if any of the numbers are correct because you used uncertified configurations," Mercuri testified.

Oh my...you know these Harvard people really seem to know their stuff heehee (dubya excluded of course)

If Bush were CEO, he'd be fired, says business executive

Duh? Well, I never would have hired him in the first place! Not with Dumbya's track record of failure!

Also, something funny...#43 and his Father, Grandfather, and Great-Grandfather all members of Skull & Bones.. but not Jeb!

If Bush was a CEO, yeah he would have been fired but he would have been earning 400% more than the workers, and walked away with a package in the millions....see the problem, America?
