09 September 2009 - 09:26 AMWho cares?
I'm looking outside my window and....
Yep, life is still going right along.
16 December 2008 - 02:02 PMThis video is one of the funniest of Dubya yet.
And that's saying something, because every time the man speaks or appears in public, he makes a fool of himself.
He's so UN-presidential. He smirks and looks back at the guy with his "missed me!" face--like a 12 year old kid on the playground.
Maybe the guy was throwing the shoes in the direction of the WMD's as a hint for Georgie, since he can't seem to find them five years later. I'm sure it was all a misunderstanding.
January cannot get here fast enough.
30 May 2008 - 08:53 AMI'm sure McShame will take care of this guy once he gets in office.
I mean McSame. No, I mean John W. McFlip-Flop. Sorry, I can't get his name right, but I'm sure that since he doesn't want to give GI's a free education, he will instead help them get off the streets. Maybe he could work for Blackwater--they'll take anybody who doesn't mind shooting civilians. Ask him next time you see him.

What I'm not listening to right now:
The treasonous lies of George W. Bush
28 January 2008 - 07:23 PMhttp://www.americanprogress.org/issues/200...99problems.html
Now, before you go screaming, "Liberal Bias", "Liberal Bias", remember to go look at the links they provide.
Problem: The Taliban’s Resurgence
Today, Al Qaeda along the Pakistan/Afghanistan border is back to pre-9/11 strength. The Taliban increased the number of roadside and suicide bomb attacks in 2007 to the highest level since the war in Afghanistan began. The two groups are flush with money from the Afghanistan opium trade, which “grew by 17 percent in 2007, reaching record levels for the second straight year.”
Do you want less or more presence in Afghanistan? Make up your mind...we can't keep down their numbers with less people.
Problem: No Health Insurance
There were 47 million Americans living without health insurance in 2006; that’s 8.6 million more uninsured than there were in 2000.
...Then buy health insurance...or get a job that provides it (walmart is great!)
Problem: Killing the Polar Bears
In January of 2008, the Bush administration missed a deadline requiring a final decision on whether to give polar bears—often the poster children of global warming—federal protection under the Endangered Species Act. The U.S. Geological Survey’s September report, meanwhile, found that melting Arctic sea ice could wipe out polar bears in Alaska and kill off two-thirds of the species’ global population. (Emphasis mine, just so you don't scream, "Liberal Bias" again).
What do you expect from a country who only has polar bears in the northern most part of their northern most state?...Besides, the EPA has nothing to do with the president.
QuotePolar Bear Status Report
Polar bears are a potentially endangered species living in the circumpolar north. They are animals which know no boundaries. They pad across the ice from Russia to Alaska, from Canada to Greenland and onto Norway's Svalbard archipelago. No adequate census exists on which to base a worldwide population estimate, but biologists use a working figure of 20,000 to 25,000 bears with about sixty percent of those living in Canada.

Problem: Rolling Back Brown v. Board of Education
A half century ago, with the landmark case Brown v. Board of Education, the Supreme Court ordered the nation’s schools to desegregate. In 2007, with two of President Bush’s Court appointees in the 5-4 majority, the Roberts Court rolled back desegregation, ruling local officials “cannot take modest steps to bring public school students of different races together.”
Is forcing integration any better than forcing segregation? If two kids don't sit together, it's their business...leave them alone. THAT is what the 'rollback' is saying. We're not going to separate you, and we're not going to put you together we're just going to treat you all the same and let the cards fall where they may. Totally wrong I know...we should teach our kids to be pushovers in any situation that involves race, because we don't want to offend anyone...
Problem: A Hobbled National Guard
A congressional report found that the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan had worn down the National Guard so much that almost 90 percent of Army National Guard Units are “not ready ... jeopardizing the Guard's ability to respond to crises at home and abroad.”
The national guard isn't the army, they are made up of civilians ready in case of emergency. If more people would JOIN the national guard, we wouldn't have this problem.
Problem: Habeas Corpus Denied
Article One, Section Nine of the United States Constitution states the basic human right of habeas corpus can not be suspended except for cases “of rebellion or invasion.” In September 2006, at President Bush’s urging, the Republican-led Congress passed the Military Commissions Act, which stripped terror detainees of this basic right. Thirty-three former U.S. diplomats warned “to deny habeas corpus to our detainees can be seen as prescription for how the captured members of our own military, diplomatic and NGO personnel stationed abroad may be treated.”
Were they UNITED STATES CITIZENS...were they SUSPECTED OF TREASON...
Problem: Guantanamo Bay
Since opening its doors in 2004, the U.S. detention facility at Guantanamo Bay has held—and presumably tortured—more than 500 detainees. The lack of basic legal rights—such as habeas corpus—at Gitmo has been one of the White House’s biggest scandals, and has helped to ruin the U.S. reputation around the world. According to Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen: “More than anything else it’s been the image—how Gitmo has become around the world, in terms of representing the United States. ... I believe that from the standpoint of how it reflects on us that it’s been pretty damaging.”
Presumably eh...there's a hard hitting court case..."Your honor, I think there's something wrong going on there...LOCK THEM UP!"
Problem: A Presidency Above the Law
Bush has used signing statements—caveats to bills that presidents tack on when they sign them into law—to amend more than 1,100 sections of legislation. (That’s more than all other presidents combined.) Some of the more controversial signing statements: President Bush gave himself the power to bypass a law requiring the Justice Department to report to Congress about how the FBI uses the Patriot Act to search American homes. In another instance, President Bush gave himself the power to waive the congressional ban on torture.
Blame the congressmen who didn't read what they passed. It's their fault for not using their check power.
Problem: A Vice Presidency Above the Law
In June 2007, Vice President PEE SHOOTER Cheney announced he did not have to comply with the law requiring members of the executive branch to report to the National Archives on information his office has classified because, according to the vice president, he was not actually part of the executive branch of the government.
The vice president does only what he is appointed to do by the president. Check up on what cheney was told to do, then see if those laws even apply to the job.
Problem: Fake News
The Department of Health and Human Services got caught producing fake “news” segments on the prescription drug benefit that were “sent to TV stations, along with government-prepared scripts for news anchors to read.” In 2005, the Department of Education was discovered paying conservative commentator Armstrong Williams to write columns promoting No Child Left Behind. In October 2007, the Department of Homeland Security staged a fake press conference (complete with staffers posing as reporters) to offer a glowing report of how well they handled the California wildfires.
Once more...how is this The President's fault? Do you expect him to read every document that passes into and out of government buildings?
Problem: Kids Having Kids
Bush spent over $1 billion on the federal financing of “abstinence-only” education which leaves young people without vital sexual health information and has never been shown to “prevent unwanted pregnancies or sexually transmitted diseases.” In 2007, new analysis from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control reported that, for the first time in 14 years, the teen birth rate went up, to 3 percent (Once again, emphasis mine).
Lets not waste money on welfare either...because its not doing what it was supposed to do either (get people back into work)...sound good? You can't lance everything because someone says it doesn't work...you won't have anything left.
Problem: Unsafe Airports
Airline security is consistently the top complaint of air travelers ... but it doesn’t seem to be doing much good. In airport tests, the TSA consistently fails to detect test bombs. In one example, “screeners at Newark Liberty International Airport, one of the starting points for the Sept. 11 hijackers, failed 20 of 22 security tests conducted by undercover U.S. agents.”
How many airports are federally run? How many bombs have gotten through military airbases? (in other words, the airport is the owner's responsibility, and he's not going to do anything more than put up with the minimum requirements because he doesn't want to lose passengers because they're searched too thoroughly.
Problem: Toxic FEMA Trailers
Although they were warned more than a year before the problem became public, FEMA purposely ignored reports that the trailers they set up for families affected by Hurricane Katrina were filled with toxic, carcinogenic formaldehyde gas. More than 75,000 families lived in these trailers.
This is the first I heard of this...I suppose this toxic gas killed a bunch of people? Didn't hear about that either.
Problem: The World Doesn’t Like Us
In 2007, a Pew research poll showed that the United States was even less popular with our allies now than we were five years ago. In 2002, Britain had a 75 percent favorable rating of the United States. A year ago, it sank to 51 percent. Germany had a 60 percent favorable view of the United States in 2002; in 2007, it was 30 percent.
Could it be that because they're allied with us, the arabs that hate us so much, are making it hard on them? Hmmm...You don't like someone you can't hurt, so you hurt their friends.
Problem: Inflating the Iranian Threat
In public, both President Bush and Vice President Cheney ratcheted up talk about the nuclear threat from Iran despite private intelligence reports that showed Iran had abandoned its nuclear weapons program in 2003.
You think those private reports had as many resources as the government? Can Joe Schmoe access satellite images and send in spies?
Problem: Poor Kids Need a Head Start
This administration cut funds for Head Start, the national program dedicated to getting low-income kids ready for school, 11 percent since 2002. In 2007 alone, the amount cut was equal to the amount needed to include 26,500 kids.
Is favoring you because you're poor any worse than favoring you because you're black? Lets take a look at the United Negro College Fund hmm?
Just thought you might find it interesting.
The few. The proud. The ignorant:
The 27% still ignorant enough to justify and believe in George W. Bush. Even your messiah, Ronald Reagan knew Dubya was a useless failure.
BLACKPAJAMMAS hasn't added any friends yet.
