bullseye? and Clinton did a better job I presume? get real.
what on earth are you Bush hating LIBS going to do if Bush is successful? answer: criticize him about something else.
Hey...how 'bout that turncoat Murtha saying the SURGE is working? He'd better recant that.He's gone off the reservation with that positive slip of the tongue...I hear Pelosi is livid...nice to know how much DEMS want failure for Bush at any cost.

But then again Clinton wasn't standing on thousands of corpses while he tried to attain his eleventh hour Mid-East peace legacy. Does make a bit of a diffence.

Yes, RIP little Earl from MUTTS.

9:01 anon--I hate to interrupt you with the truth, but what Murtha actually said was "The surge is working militarily, but not politically, and the Iraqis have to do it for themselves".
Isn't it amazing how an accurate full quote changes everything? I'm sure, however, that exposure to facts won't change your mind about anything. If it does, I'll apologize.

Nice drawing (I dig the lettering on the sign!), but what's up with Bush's hair? Don't change how you draw it, Jim, the way you were doing it before was fine and this actually makes him less recognizable.

bullseye? and Clinton did a better job I presume? get real.

B-b-but CLINTON!!!1!11one


what on earth are you Bush hating LIBS going to do if Bush is successful?

Name one good thing Bush has ever succeeded at.

The only legacy he's going to leave behind as President is a legacy of failure, just like he had before he was President.

johndwoodsr:

google "john murtha" and "cant win in iraq militarily", and see what comes up.

john murtha has said a NUMBER of times that the US cannot win in iraq militarily. now that we are, he's forced to come up with another bullshit excuse for pulling out of iraq.

it's the same liberal defeatist mentality they've always had. no reason to get concerned.

just trust us, sweety pie. let republicans win in iraq like we continue to do, and maybe you guys can convince americans that you were responsible just like you do with everything else. :)

Let's try this again. Ohio State was No. 1 and LSU was 2 in the AP Top 25 on Sunday, just as they were a month ago, before four weeks of upsets and unlikely results capped the most unpredictable college football season in recent memory. (AP, 3:34 p.m.)

a few terror attacks, and a few wars in response do cost money, yes.

however, thanks to bush's tax cuts, the debt will be wiped out clean unless democrats decide to increase it even further.

but good try, communist.

 
at 12/3/07, 9:33 AM Anonymous Anonymous said...

Hmmm during all republican administrations over the past fifty years, the national debt has skyrocketed. Funnily enough, even without the God-given Bush tax cuts, national debt under democratic admins decreased. http://www.cedarcomm.com/~stevelm1/usdebt.htm
Its a crazy thing about most conservatives, they're much happier using name calling and petty insults then facts - but it makes sense, because when it comes to Bush, the facts always work against them.

name calling? the left excels in the politics of personal destruction.
where's the name calling in this thread? Clinton failed miserably in the Middle East.Talk about a last minute legacy check for him...c'mon! Now the LEFT is complaining that Bush ignored the ME for 7 years...oh I'm sorry...he got sidetracked cracking down on terrorists.If Bush had made the ME priority 1,you'd be crying he hadn't done anything about terrorism.Hey...Hillary...what steady leadership in NH,huh? Why she never broke a sweat dealing with the "crisis" some old man with road flares brought about.My goodness but we could all rest easy when she deals with Iran,couldn't we?

wow, a conservative finally got something right:

"he got sidetracked cracking down on terrorists"

you can say that again. a funny thing happened on the way to afghanistan, we took a wrong turn and ended up in iraq.

if by "we", you mean bill clinton, hillary clinton, and the rest of the DemoKKKrat party, then yes. "we" took a wrong turn.

 
at 12/3/07, 7:49 PM Anonymous Anonymous said...

Name calling... What does the KKK have to do with being a democrat? That's not just name calling, its kind of silly.
Can't we keep things on the level of civil political argument without degrading politicians or poster's personalities and focusing on their policies and politics? Using facts instead of illogical vitriol?

The biblical prophecies are being fulfilled, its says there will be a peace treaty with Israel in the end times. I wonder if that makes Bush the anti-christ.

 
at 12/3/07, 10:59 PM Anonymous Anonymous said...

Well, considering Robert Byrd, the longest serving Senator in american history was a former member of the KKK, and just *happens* to be a DemoKKKrat, and considering that recent story about the Alabama (i think?) county commissioner who said people should vote for Hillary because she WHITE, and considering DemoKKKrat policies are based out of hatred for minorities (handouts for the poor, affirmative action, and pretty much preventing minorities from ever being able to succeed in general), i think it is fair to associate the KKK with the DemoKKKrat party. (oh yeah, and that little thing about how a larger percentage of republicans voted for the civil rights act). you can think its 'silly' all you want. unfortunately, it's based on historic accuracy. :(

 
at 12/3/07, 11:13 PM Anonymous Anonymous said...

Strom Thurmond? Trent Lott? George Allen? The "Call me, Harold" TV spot that ran during the Harold Ford campaign in Tennessee in 2006 or the fact that the Democratic candidates for 2008 include an African-American, a Latino, and the only candidate who has dared to discuss the problem of poverty, while the Republican slate is the same old bunch of white men?
Pardon me, but it is silly to tag racial injustice as the purview of one party over the next. Just plain silly.

In 1942, 24-year-old Byrd joined the Ku Klux Klan (KKK), whose parades in Matoaka, West Virginia, he had witnessed in his childhood. He was unanimously elected Exalted Cyclops, or leader, of his local chapter.[4]

Byrd, in his autobiography, attributed the beginnings of his political career to this incident, although he lamented that they involved the Klan. According to Byrd's recollection, KKK official Joel L. Baskin told him "You have a talent for leadership, Bob ... The country needs young men like you in the leadership of the nation." Byrd recalls that "suddenly lights flashed in my mind! Someone important had recognized my abilities. I was only 23 or 24, and the thought of a political career had never struck me. But strike me that night, it did."[4] He participated in the KKK during World War II, holding the titles Kleagle (recruiter) and Exalted Cyclops. He did not serve in the military during the war, working instead as a welder in a Baltimore, Maryland shipyard, where he helped build warships.[citation needed]

Byrd commented on the 1945 controversy about racially integrating the military. Byrd, when he was 28 years old, wrote to segregationist Senator Theodore Bilbo, of Mississippi, vowing never to serve in such a military:

Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.[5]
He had earlier written Bilbo "I shall never fight in the armed forces with a Negro by my side".[6][7]

When running for the United States House of Representatives in 1952, he announced "After about a year, I became disinterested, quit paying my dues, and dropped my membership in the organization. During the nine years that have followed, I have never been interested in the Klan." During this campaign, "Byrd went on the radio to acknowledge that he belonged to the Klan from 'mid-1942 to early 1943,' according to newspaper accounts. He explained that he had joined 'because it offered excitement and because it was strongly opposed to communism.'"[4] However, as late as 1946 or 1947, when he was 29 years old, he was still at least somewhat involved in promoting the KKK, as evidenced by a letter that he wrote to a Grand Wizard stating "The Klan is needed today as never before and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia" and "in every state in the nation."[8]

In 1997, he told an interviewer he would encourage young people to become involved in politics, but to "Be sure you avoid the Ku Klux Klan. Don't get that albatross around your neck. Once you've made that mistake, you inhibit your operations in the political arena."[9] In his latest autobiography, Byrd explained that he was a member because he "was sorely afflicted with tunnel vision—a jejune and immature outlook—seeing only what I wanted to see because I thought the Klan could provide an outlet for my talents and ambitions."[10] Byrd also said, in 2005, "I know now I was wrong. Intolerance had no place in America. I apologized a thousand times ... and I don't mind apologizing over and over again. I can't erase what happened."[4]

Enough said.

The April 2001 riots, sparked by the shooting of African-American Timothy Thomas by Officer Stephen Roach, threw the Cincinnati Police Department back into the national eye. The outcry prompted a U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division investigation that culminated in a federal agreement with both the City of Cincinnati and the Cincinnati Police Department towards the improvement of area law enforcement. Along with new publications on community policing and public relations, this Memorandum of Agreement may be viewed online or in print in the Information & Reference Department. The first quarterly status report, in which the CPD’s compliance with the Memorandum is reviewed, has been posted to the CPD website with other collaborative documents. Additional information on Cincinnati Police Practices (including the Final Settlement of the U.S. District Court) is available on the ACLU’s website.

A lengthy review of racial profiling in Cincinnati by the consulting firm RAND Corporation led to the study “Police-Community Relations in Cincinnati.” This item is available only online—you’ll find a link to the title in our Catalog.

A concurrent internal investigation of Officer Roach was carried out by the Cincinnati Police Department, culminating in a report released to the public. Numerous newspaper articles tracking the riots, the investigations, the ensuing boycott, and the creation of Cincinnati CAN (Community Action Now) task force and the Citizen Complaint Authority may be searched via Newsdex. Type in “Cincinnati (City) Police Department” as the main subject heading in order to retrieve lists of articles on the CPD over the years, all of which may be read in the Magazines & Newspapers Department. More information can also be found in the RAND report, Police-Community Relations in Cincinnati. See also the local media’s joint archive of news stories and links online pertaining to recent developments in our community’s race relations.

Information on the current Cincinnati Police Department is online, including recruitment information, neighborhood crime statistics, photos and descriptions of missing persons as well as Cincinnati’s Most Wanted, and a memorial to officers who have died in the line of duty. The website also offers online forms for citizen complaints and service feedback, as well as a list of neighborhood assignments for police officers. Cincinnati was also included in a report by the Bureau of Justice Statistics, Police Departments in Large Cities, which offers a statistical profile of department personnel and equipment.

The Cincinnati Police conducts ongoing recruitment for new police officers. The Information & Reference Department’s collection contains several study guides for general police exams. The Cincinnati Police webpage contains a detailed document called “Police Recruit Information Guide” for those who are interested.
