John 19:34 - if you follow the link it takes you to a long winded explanation about a bible verse.

all i can say is, what a waste of time and energy to invest so much in a superstitition.

the cartoon fails to capture the true arrogance of the bush crime family. in response to a question by martha raddetz that 75% of americans think the war in iraq was a mistake, cheney responded in his best marie antionette voice:

SO

Dear fellow bloggers who are so against Cheney's comment:
What would your ideal America look like? Would the government be susceptible to the whims of its people? If the government changed policy every time a majority of Americans wanted something, nothing would get done. In March 2003 almost 75 percent of people were okay with going into Iraq. Hmm.
But let's look at this more historically. Polls in 1953 showed that a majority of Americans didn't think that mandatory integration of public schools was necessary. Back then, the government said "SO" and thus, we're closer to racial equality.
Lesson learned: the government knows better than us idiot bloggers. Let them do their jobs. Quit complaining just because they have more perspective than us.

Today
Feasting on Easter
by Robert R. Allard

How many of us today really know how to feast on Easter? Sure, we look forward to Easter Sunday every year, but how many people truly understand the incredible blessings that are awaiting us at this special time of year? It is the greatest feast! In fact the celebration is supposed to go on all week long up until and including the very next Sunday.

vote down all legislation regarding nuclear reactors: they're not doing it right

8:03 - it isn't about polls, its about improving the human condition. 20 years of conservative rule have damn near destroyed the united states. cheney's comment is more about the total and unforgiving arrogance of the bush administration than anything else. he might as well have given us all the finger.

Basic concept >> if you believe in the Easter Bunny, you'll believe our esteemed VP Cheney. I agree.

Scary how many people believe. After so much evidence to the contrary.

Ex-Ram, fans drop lawsuit vs. Patriots
Email|Print| Text size – + By Christopher L. Gasper
Globe Staff / March 11, 2008
A lawsuit filed for more than $100 million against the Patriots, owner Robert Kraft, and coach Bill Belichick on behalf of a member of the 2001 St. Louis Rams team that lost to the Patriots in Super Bowl XXXVI and three fans was withdrawn yesterday.

Some comments:

1. Cheney is off base on his SO comment. The main duty for the commander in chief in times of war and conflict is to communicate to the people why we are there, whey we are spending our money rebuilding another country, and to basically allow the military to do their job, the generals not the civilians such as Rumsfield. President Bush started off being decent at all of those, however has basically failed since 2005 in keeping up the support for the war and if it wasn't for Patreus doing things that should have been done 4 years ago Iraq would be in a much worse mess.

2. Those who claim Bush is a dictator really need to go to where there are true dictatorships. While most if not all of those countries are leftists who force socialism on the people, simply writing a negative critique like what those who are anti-Bush would land one in jail or worse killed. Just look at Tibet as well as the former Saddam Hussein regime.

3. Again, the war should not be fought on the populatiry of the fight but at the same time our leaders should lead us to support the war,not drop 5 second soundbites that will do the opposite.

4. Finally regardless of where you personally stand on the war or President Bush we should remember those who VOLUNTEER to fight the war and the sacrifices they make, whether or not they are injured or not.

5. South Park used Janet Reno dressed as the Easter bunny in a great parody/political cartoon dealing with the Elian Gonzalez situation back in 2000. Much better than the Cheney bunny Jim.

What is Cheney's definition of pain?

Cheney hears Palestinian complaints By DEB RIECHMANN, Associated Press Writer
2 minutes ago

RAMALLAH, West Bank - Palestinian leaders asked Vice President Dick Cheney on Sunday to pressure Israel to halt settlement construction and voiced other complaints that deflated Cheney's hopeful words about Mideast peace.

Jim,
Why don't you retire from the Editorial Page and focus on Zits. But wait.....long before summer, you would probably have Jeremy driving around the local VFW sixty times with Pierce holding up a "Impeach Bush and Cheney" sign!

There are too many reason to list why the Enquire hates women let me give you a few:
1) WIves
2) Mother in laws
3) PMS
4) The constent talking.
Can you see the next State of the Union. It will start (and said in one breath):
Today I went out and bought a new dress and even though the lady was extreamly rude because I told her I was a size six and she said I was and eight, and then I said whatever because I told her that I had to be back at the house before a big meeting and then Bill started his crap and I only got to read this speach once and then I felt bloted and I said what who uses the word war in a speach I mean it sound so crazy can't we use conflict oh my god my hair is so crazy. ANYWAY the State of the Union is fine. ( All the men in the world are shaking their heads and saying HUH?)

That is why the Enquire hates women. LOL

Jim, I suspect you get a secret pleasure out of pricking the Bush/Cheney zealots & listening to them squeal.
Thanks. I do too.
And they're soooo easy.

too bad they can't give warning about the nuclear reactors they're building in China (but that would be irrelevant according to the new borgman/bush rules on this site)

Pre-collapse photos show bends on bridge Sun Mar 23, 4:48 PM ET
MINNEAPOLIS - Old photos of the Interstate 35W bridge show two steel connecting plates were visibly bent as early as 2003 — four years before the span collapsed into the Mississippi River, killing 13 people.

"What would your ideal America look like?"

A giant bunny would bring us chocolate covered peanut butter eggs everyday instead of just once a year.

And the people would be smart enough to give their leaders hell when they lying and doing a crappy job.

Oh...and the Patriots, Red Sox, Yankees, Ohio State Buckeyes and Duke Blue Devils all suffer humiliating defeats.

Cheney is more like Henny Penny-but in reverse. Instead of running around yelling "the sky is falling" Cheney runs around Iraq yelling that the missiles are not flying and everything is going stunningly well there.

If I were in Cheney's position, I'd probably have a heart-attack.
What's his excuse?

 
at 3/26/08, 9:38 PM Anonymous Reality Check said...

Wow, Scott Evans gives an eloquent defense . . . but eloquent defense of the indefensible is still a defense of the indefensible, so here's a reality check . . .:

Reality Check 1: It's more than the "so" comment, but the hubris that surrounds it, and that has surrounded this whole operation from the beginning. We shouldn't be spending money to rebuild Iraq, we should be spending it to let them rebuild their own nation (It was called the Marshall Plan). It's safe to say President Bush lost the ability to defend the war/occupation/whatchamacallit as of 2005 when it became obvious what a fiasco this was from the start. At this point he should have admitted the mistake, and started plans for a pull-out; instead, he dug in deeper, choosing to save face rather than do the right thing.

Reality Check 2: Calling Bush a dictator may be an exaggeration, but so is blaming the world's problems on leftist ideology. Still, critical questions need to be asked about the abuses of executive power (see "Signing Statements") of the last seven years.

Reality Check 3: To be blunt, the reason our leaders are down to making 5 second sound bites is because that is all there is! The "reasons" were either proven false, or are no longer there. As more soldiers come home in bodybags, it's harder to look people in the face and tell them this must keep going.

Reality Check 4: Like it or not, the vast majority of military volunteers likely never thought they'd fight in an actual war. Military ad are all about signing bonuses, and "future opportunities." Even those who did sign thought they'd be sent to fight our actual enemies in Afghanistan, not robbing ~27 million people of their freedom. Finally, a dead or maimed volunteer is still dead or maimed, and still one of ours.


Reality Check 5: Important people in bunny costumes will always be funny! To varying degrees, I'll concede, but still . . .
