Subject: Saw This Headline and Bought the Paper Today
I'm sending on a couple of links from my local paper today. The first one was the headline which prompted me to buy the rag. The second link was an on-line only story. I really have no comment. Please check out these two stories and know that we don't need a hurricane, wild fire, earthquake, etc. for our city to be destroyed. Thanks.

Subject: "Harry" to the Bench
Is it conceivable that Bush, like his father, has selected a person for an associate justice position known to uphold the principles of Roe v. Wade?
Think about it. A majority of the United States, when asked, does not want Roe v. Wade overturned. The issue of overturning it keeps the lunatics on the right frothing. If the Republicans (90% of which are not religious fanatics, but only use religious issues to divide the common populace) allow the Court to overturn Roe, then their "base" on the righteous right may become ambivalent in politics, or worse, might actually start behaving like true Christians and become concerned with poverty, illegal wars, the environment, etc.
In other words, Bush and his cabal need to protect Roe or the Republican base may lose its gas. That gas, in turn, would shift to and push the progressive sails.
Doing my best to highlight the "CON" in conservative....
Subject: Al Gore?
Would Al Gore stand up for America in another rigged election or would he desert us again as he did in 2000? He and his democratic cohorts had the evidence of election fraud and they turned away any and all attempts to rectify the horrendous outcome. The black caucus must have felt totally abandoned by the democrats. Maybe that's why a larger number of blacks voted republican in 2004.
Why haven't our election systems been fixed to guarantee a fair election in the future?
What's happening in America today is just as much the demos' fault as Bush's. They allowed a criminal organization based in Houston and Wyoming to take total control of our country.
Why is our congress still pouring our tax dollars into Iraq, a failed adventure of greed and arrogance? Fifty billion more today with a vote of 98 to 2 in the Senate.
Just two many damned questions not answered by both parties.
Subject: Ever get the feeling you're being lied to?
Is there anything fishy going on?
A couple days ago Bush is on the ropes losing the war in Iraq, losing battalions of "eye-racky" troops, Miers' appointment is criticised as cronyism, Tom DeLay is going to the dock, Frist is under a microscope, Judith Miller is singing like a canary, and Bush says the military will be used for martial law if there's an outbreak of avian flu.
Then, the Senate adds an amendment banning torture to the defense spending bill on a 90 to 9 vote, officials prepare to see indictments in the Plame case (e.g. Rove, Libby), more bad news from Iraq, Bush makes speech wherein he is the savior of the world in the fight against terrorists, who could take over the world. Even some Republicans say, "Dude, chill out."
Now TODAY, the Boston Globe reports the FBI says cars stolen in the US are being smuggled to Iraq to be used as car bombs, the NYC subway is the alleged target of a bomb plot and people in Iraq are arrested for allegedly plotting to do it (and they were going to travel through Syria to get to NY), and the Washington monument and two blocks around it are evacuated for a bomb threat.
All this in one day!
Anyone else think there's a dog being wagged here?
