Away Go Troubles Down The Drain...

‘Most corrupt’ list members keep vanishing

After creating a list called “The 22 most corrupt members of Congress (and two to watch),” one must make haste in releasing it.

That’s because those pesky designees have a way of disappearing.

The Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), a nonprofit watchdog, released its third-annual list on Sept. 18.
It included Rep. Jerry Weller (R-Ill.), who announced on Sept. 22 that he wanted to spend more time with his family and would retire next year.

Yes, the decision was 100 percent about his family, and had nothing at all to do with the list or a Chicago Tribune investigative series of stories that uncovered omissions in his financial disclosure filings.

Sen. Craig, who is one of the “two to watch,” is on his way out the door at month’s end — at least, his Republican leadership hopes he is.

At this pace, CREW can hope to get results like its list did last year. Of the 25 lawmakers who earned the distinction in 2006, 10 are no longer in Congress and eight more are under federal investigation.

But not everybody is impressed by the organization’s work. Rep. John Doolittle (R-Calif.), who is the target of a Justice Department probe and two-time winner of a slot on the list, fought back, informing the local Auburn Journal that he doesn’t like CREW anyway.

“I just really think it’s unfair and wrong for an underhanded and vile organization like CREW, who disagrees with me because I’m a conservative Republican, to attack me on that,” he reportedly said.

I heart CREW for demonstrating that with a little sunshine, elbow grease and diligence -- (extra)ordinary citizens like them CAN make a difference in cleaning up Congress!

Anti-Bush protesters arrested near UN

17 minutes ago

About a dozen anti-war protesters were arrested Tuesday morning during a peaceful demonstration of President Bush's speech before the U.N. General Assembly.

The arrestees were among about 400 protesters opposing the Bush Administration's war in Iraq, and its incarceration in Guantanamo Bay of more than 300 men on suspicion of terrorism or links to al-Qaida or the Taliban. Many in the crowd wore orange jumpsuits in solidarity with the Guantanamo detainees.

The arrested demonstrators were taken into custody by police after kneeling on the sidewalk in an act of civil disobedience at the rally near the United Nations. One of them, 58-year-old Bill Ofenloch said they were trying to serve an "arrest warrant" on Bush for "high crimes against humanity."

Members of the anti-war group Code Pink performed a bit of street theater where a person wearing a Bush mask was arrested.

"What do we say?" shouted Code Pink's Medea Benjamin. "Arrest the criminal!"

The crowd picked up the chant.

Move America Forward does not support the troops-they support Bush's war!

Which will cost American taxpaying citizens more?

The wars to protect Bushbuddy Oil and investors, or investigating corrupt Congress with little or no convictions and/or minimal punishment?

Our children are going without college educations, and our middle class is dying to fund these causes.

There are some GOOD AMERICANS left. Why starve them out?

Talked with a Lt Colonel today-he loves the Constitution so much. He was near tears talking about what Bushco and the neocons have done to it.

You know, I really do believe George Bush is a better person than Karl Rove-but that isn't saying a whole helluva lot. I wonder what the masses will do to them when everyone knows.

Romney isn't good enough to clean my cats litter box! BLAH!

Kitty,

I recognize your voice, in your blogging.

Ambivalence is not always a positive.

To be able to hold two opposing thoughts in your head, without going insane, is a skill. I'm well suited to the task.

It's indecisive. A warrior can't be indecisive, he would be dead. An athlete can't be indecisive, they'd fall short of the mark-they would lose the game, a lawyer (barrister) loose the trial.

" Ambivalence is not always a positive."

No it's not especially when you use it to frame, hurt, humiliate and degrade others that come in contact with you.

All in an attempt to wreck havoc on their lives for your own sadistic pleasure.

But, people like you keep. And keep you will.

Because I know that one day I will get the opportunity to repay the favour.

This is an open blog, no censoring here. But if you you want to attack me, it would be fair that you call me first, before you called me out on this blog. Even well-intentioned people get their signals crossed.

You don't sound well-intentioned. You ended your blog with a threat.

A slap on the wrist might be in order.

I submit to the probation of an editor. Prissy would like that. I take up too much of the blog.

I had to look up 'interpleader' in Wiki.

Sigh...I'm not trained in the law.

That being said, ignorance of the law is no excuse.

Interpleader, pray tell, what law have I broken? What have I done wrong. Educate me.

Celeste Aida

Last night, during my speaking engagement, at an African American Church, to teens; about sex. An issue involving drugs and selling drugs came up.

Two teens were accused of selling drugs.

I didn't talk law, they all knew they were breaking the law.

Everyone understands the 'golden rule' do unto others, as you would have them do unto you.

The nature of street drugs is unpredictable. Do you really want to be responsible for someone dying from a drug that you sold them?

Can you live with the constant threat of someone coming after you; both your clients and law enforcement.

There was a group discussion.

The boys in question, Joe and Cass, 16, shared their dreams with me, of what they wanted from life. One too be an architect and other to be a record producer...nuff said.

I hope that I can be of some use to them.

Legal Eagles...you are the thin blue line. When those boys meet you, and they will if they continue with drugs, it's too late for them.

They will have ruined their lives.

I told them so.

Very few questions about about the clinical aspects of sex and intimacy.

Because ultimately, sex is really between the ears and mediated by the heart.

I've been invited back to speak to the whole congregation.

I was a teen runaway. I didn't stay in the streets, I always got promoted to the front office. I had skills. I was useful to the boss.

God Save the Flag
by Oliver Wendell Holmes

Washed in the blood of the brave and the blooming,
Snatched from the altars of insolent foes,
Burning with star-fires, but never consuming,
Flash its broad ribbons of lily and rose.

Vainly the prophets of Baal would rend it,
Vainly his worshippers pray for its fall;
Thousands have died for it, millions defend it,
Emblem of justice and mercy to all;

Justice that reddens the sky with her terrors,
Mercy that comes with her white-handed train,
Soothing all passions, redeeming all errors,
Sheathing the sabre and breaking the chain.

Borne on the deluge of all usurpations,
Drifted our Ark o'er the desolate seas,
Bearing the rainbow of hope to the nations,
Torn from the storm-cloud and flung to the breeze!

God bless the Flag and its loyal defenders,
While its broad folds o'er the battle-field wave,
Till the dim star-wreath rekindle its splendors,
Washed from its stains in the blood of the brave!


I found this in an Air Force calendar. Take care Mr. Fitzgerald. I'm done doing psychological ops on the blog, and have been shoved down on concrete with 8 witnesses (the police wouldn't let me press charges). The man who did this will be out in 72 hours. I have to go, I don't understand everything, but I have instincts.
I may have to leave, I'll say a prayer for you -say one for me.


Can somebody put up that song by No Doubt- "Running" for me?
It would mean alot to me.

I may have to go pawn my laptop before I go in the Impact program.

I have never visited Congress but I understand the Democrat and Repubs are on different sides if the building.

Many of you are reporters. Did any of you ask the senior republicans if Larry did any toe tapping in the commom men's room or did Larry ever make a pass in the men's room . Did any of them ever make a pass at Larry ? Did any avoid the men's room when Larry occuppied the men's room.

Larry Craig used the same facilities as the other seniors for years . Doesn't anyone know anything ?

Please ask.

Should I become a reporter ?

and don't forget to kill BOB P. BURNS AND ALL HIS FRIENDS.

---Aileen Aranzamendez-Large----by the way, BOB P. BURNS WORKED FOR HOMELAND SECURITY AS A DIRECTOR OF SPECIAL TECH, HE NOW WORKS FOR DARPA. If he or any of his friends cannot arrest me for writing this---what does that tell you about me? I AM NOT CRAZY. I AM ALLOWED TO WRITE THESE THINGS AND WHEN BOB P BURNS IS KIDAPPED, ALONG WITH HIS FRIENDS---that tells you that I am right all along.
So be smart and help me. I keep my promises.

DON'T FORGET MY NAME: AILEEN ARANZAMENDEZ-LARGE ALSO KNOWN AS AILEEN LARGE. if you googled and you read this---then be smart about it--the tech I am talking about is true and I will sue for billions of dollars with the others too.

so much intrigue--personally, I find intrigue so boring, I can go to sleep. However, whatever it takes to bring these monsters from our government and military who are torturing me and other people---geez---they've been using mind control since the heyday of the ekplane! ekplane! Remember 'THE LOVE BOAT" now that's a clue. To the people reading this here in the US AND ABROAD: now's your chance to finally help to stop this torture and to be able to have money in the future. MAY I REMIND YOU THAT LOCKHEED MARTIN COST 40 BILLION OR SO. AND WHAT ABOUT THE OTHERS? AND WHAT ABOUT CERTAIN NSA GENERALS AND OFFICIALS WHO CAN BE SUED INDIVIDUALY? THERE'S ENOUGH FOR EVERY PERON typoe--IS THAT THE NEST NEXT WORD???

THERE'S ENOUGH FOR EVERY PERSON WHO DO NOT LIKE TO BE THE MASTERCLASS OR THE MASTER RACE. INCLUDING FOR THE soldiers and the people who work with BOB who cannot stand his lies and his experiments since day 1. Well--I'M SURE ATTY. COMEY'S AGENTS ARE ALWAYS AVAILABLE AT WORK so you can cooperate and get those bastards who carved out high positions for themselves sin is a typo in government by torture and murder and corruption--you know . . . has -- been kidnapped yet?

--go ahead complain about what I write--you'll only provide AN ISP even if it's not yours--it's something that can be used as evidence and exhibit.

Are you sure the higher ups are telling you the truth--even if you're in Canada? How did I KNOW THAT? How did I KNOW YOU WERE PLANNING ON USING FAKE ISPs to set up something very bad....geez guys, how did WE know that?
