want to go on record as not intending to give The Billy Graham Ministries
any (more) money because I am offended, not only by Mr. Graham's comments
about Jews to Richard Nixon thirty years ago, but by Franklin Graham's
terrible attempt to justify and defend his father's remarks. Those comments
by the senior Graham were not about an "elite" (read "elite
band of Jews") as Franklin Graham lamely stated, they were about
Jews in general and how they supposedly controlled or owned all media
. . . a well known, anti-Semite canard that still circulates in racist
circles to this very day. Franklin Graham went on to state that the remarks
by his father were "taken out of context..." which is a flat
out lie. Nothing was left out nor added to that tape, or it's transcript
(you can now hear the tape itself at the Nixon Library). If you're going
to defend the indefensible, you had better not lie about it.
Amen!! But how do we get the people to listen. Are they blinded by false light? Where are the peacemakers indeed. They are not in this administration and it is a sad state of affairs for the whole world.
American people -- stand up and be counted. We are being led by war mongers who are so infantile they all but where paper hats while wielding shiny swords shouting CHARGE . . . Pay attention or we will all be knocking on heavens door.

I enjoyed Gloria's last posting. It took a balanced look at the middle east. It is my opinion that blind loyalty to one side or the other is only going to keep the slaughter going.
This person came to the same conclusions that I reached somewhere between February of 1945 and September of the same year. As a newspaper man for the Marine Corps, one of my assignments on Saipan was to interview casualties from Okinawa and Iwo Jima. Some of them would have been better off dead. Then in September our first assignment was Kyushu. The headquarters units were assigned to Nagasaki. Having a press pass allowed me more freedom of movement than the average Marine had for some time. What I saw sickened me. If any people had a right to hate us it was those citizens of that city. In spite of their pain, they treated us civilly
Now Shrub and his fellow Chicken Hawks (New Hampshire Gazette) want to use some more of those bombs on people.
There are three quotes I can remember about that incident.
"Man has at last found the means of destroying himself, ultimately and completely," Manchester Daily Guardian (England) almost immediately after Hiroshima.
"I don't know what weapons will be used in the third World War, but I feel safe in assuming that clubs and spears will be used in the one after that," Albert Einstein
"I know that all of you editors and reporters have dreamed about writing the headline declaring the end of the world, but who will be around to read it?" Adlai Stevenson to the Gridiron Club after his second defeat by Eisenhower.
Peace Makers were chased out of the White House by the all powerful influence
of Money and Power.

Lying Drudge and the scumbag Bushies [Fresh off of using and abusing Oprah] tried to portray Patriots QB, Tom Brady, as a Republican.
"The way he was talking, I'd say he's definitely a republican," observed a Bush source."
The evidence says otherwise, however:
"He is a moderate democrat," a close friend of Brady's countered on Wednesday. Playing both sides against the center, Brady has agreed to headline a fund-raiser for Senator John F. Kerry [D-MA] on June 21."
So...according to Drudge and the Dishonest, slimebucket Bushies, Brady "sounds" like a Republican. But, Brady's close friend not only says he's a "moderate Democrat," but he's hosting a fundraiser for John Kerrey!! [Noted Democratic Presidential Hopeful in '04].
Yeah. He's a "Republican" all right.
And George W. Bush is the star Quarterback for the New England Patriots.
absolutely agree - there are demonstrations in Arab countries for more
In A Grave Injustice by the Supreme Court 4/3, the Post points out that the lawyer for the accused, Mr. Micker, did not have a conflict of interest even though he represented the victim (right up until the victim's death, no less).
Funny, just two short weeks ago, an federal appellate court ruled that the lawyer for Charles Schwarz, the white police officer who helped Justin Volpe rape Abner Louima with a broomstick in a police station's men's room, did have a conflict of interest. Did he represent the victim in a previous case? No, he had merely represented the police union.
This is the man that David Mulford, Assistant Treasury Secretary under Poppy Bush, worked with to "right" the Argentina economy in the early 1990's. Mr. Mulford is now the President of a huge international bank involved with the IMF to bail out third world countries, like Argentina, who default on their loans and he's making a bundle, even though he is one of the people who set Argentina up for failure.
If someone investigated Mr. Cavallo and his relationship to Mr. Mulford, Poppy and Dubya, I think they would find a huge connection. Interesting that he was busted for illegal arms deals. Hmmm? Makes you wonder!
Subj: NewsFlash, Lynx Scandal invented by wingnuts
Here is an article illustrating how the Washington Times, along with certain right-wing anti-environmental congressmen, invent scandals to discredit sound environmental policy.
you see the CNN show Crossfire on April 1? James and Paul did a great
job and we now have two Democrats on national TV willing to fight and
not kiss-up to the GOP administration! A must watch for all disheartened
otherwise noted, all original
