Subject: The compromise
Subject: The President's Photo Op Today
Subject: media censorship
Whenever a nation goes off to war its mainstream media is in full support of said war ... More than ever since Vietnam. Remember the photo of the napalmed Vietnamese child screaming for help? No current facsimiles thereof are playing out today on the evening news. Not that today's wars aren't causing ever more such terrifying scenes. It's that it's always "first thing first," and that's greed.
Imagine, valuing a material thing more than life itself - matter
before blood and spirit - and
Some legacy this ...
It's not a given, though. Another world is possible.
Subject: Judges Compromise
The Republican ship has been sinking lately, low poll ratings for Bush and the congress, Social Security tour a debacle, the Iraq war a disaster, etc., Fox ratings sinking and progressive radio expanding. The Republicans have two main constituencies; the corporate right and the religious right. Who do you think they would sell out first - The money or the voters? Do you think that corporate America hasn't noticed that all is not well in the Republican fantasy? Frist painted the republicans into a corner. "Close down the Congress." Who cares? Everything they did we hated anyway. And now the Demo's let them off the hook and they got their fascists judges anyway.
Subject: polling report
When you look at www.pollingreport.com
... it is pretty frightening. Look how Karl Rove is successful at playing Americans.
Remember the Osama bin laden tape right before the election? The approval of Bush peaks up right there at the beginning of November and the disapproval peaks down. Looks like a diamond shape.

Subject: Nominations and Amnesty International
Now we are faced with the most deceitful, secretive, destructive government that I have ever seen in this country. People deride the comparison to the Fascist right of the 30's and 40's, but I was there, and the similarities are chilling.
Did you ever believe that Amnesty International would be investigating the United States for war crimes? Yet, it is evident that in prisons, all over the world, there are detainees of the United States and these detainees are being, at the very least, mistreated. Saddam Hussein is a monster who ill-treated his people, but to show the pictures that came out this week is not something to brag about.
I do not know what the future will bring, but the ordinary people (not just the political junkies) must wake up to what is happening in this country.

Subject: Newsweek Retraction of the Koran story
I was very saddened and angered by Newsweek retracting the Koran story. This reminds me exactly of the Dan Rather episode. In both cases the stories were basically correct and accurate but had problems with a SINGLE source. And, again like CBS, instead of holding their ground, they prostrated and asked for mercy and forgiveness!!
This is a corporate administration and both CBS and Newsweek are corporate owned and controlled, which raises the question: Are CBS and Newsweek agents provocateurs for the administration?? Are the two episodes scripted?? If that is the case, then God help America and help us all.

Subject: He'll Be Back!!
News.Scotsman.com has several articles about Galloway:
Galloway to cash in on his tongue-lashing of US senators
At the national conference of the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers, on June 30, 2003, he apologised for describing George Bush as a "wolf," saying that to do so defamed wolves: "No wolf would commit the sort of crimes against humanity that George Bush committed against the people of Iraq."
On November 20, 2004, George Galloway gave an interview on Abu-Dhabi TV the words he used ought to tie the Religious Rights’ panties in knots for months to come! He said:
Timesonline also reports Mr. Galloway will renew his attack on
the Senate over evidence he claims was forged!
