Another Rat Jumps Ship

White House spokesmodel Tony Snow announced he is leaving his job due to "financial reasons". What does it say about a man who is unable to survive on a mere $168,000 a year? What does it say for the majority of people out there who have to survive on considerably less? Remember when somebody who pulled in that amount of cash was considered well off?
That this announcement comes on a Friday evening dump leads me to believe there's more to this story than we are being told. Is the $168,000 not enough to pay off those who maybe extorting him because the father of three's name may be on a certain DC madam's list? Or did Mr. Snow have a sudden attack of conscience because he has cancer and wishes to make things right before he shakes off his mortal coil and must stand before his maker and atone for his sins?
Whatever the reasons, Snow joins Karl Rove as another high profile member of the Bush administration who is jumping ship. Who knows? I think the Ramones express my sentiment the best......

I Wish It Was Only A Joke

The wisest course would have been for President Bush to use his nuclear weapons to slaughter Iraqis until they complied with his demands, or until they were all dead. Then there would be little risk or expense and no American army would be left exposed. But if he did this, his cowardly electorate would have instantly ended his term of office, if not his freedom or his life.
By Philip Atkinson Family Security Matters
You know when you combine "Family" and "Security" you're nothing but a front for the Republicans. Who else would advocate the dissolution of the democracy that is spreading democracy throughout the world while eliminating it here at home?
But when it comes down to it, which millionaire are you voting for? Doesn't it seem silly to wonder which candidate "seems like presidential material"? It's not like we're casting a fucking Hollywood movie folks, we're deciding who will decide our fate for the next four years. Harry Truman was just a clothing store owner folks, a haberdasher, fortunately for him he was elected in the pre-television era, when a president had to have command of the english langauge to be considered 'presidential', not just look good in a suit and power tie.
And now, to celebrate getting my computer back..............................

The Official "Terrorist" Act

Today, on the radio as they discussed the bridge collapse in Minnesota, the hosts described how the major (corporate) news outlets had to go to the Department of Homeland Security to see if this was an act of terrorism. This, of course, caused me to start thinking, what did they mean? Wouldn't the local law enforcement on scene be a better source than a government bureaucrat thousands of miles away?
Everday we arewarned of impending doom from a department that wants to intrude even more on our privacy. This isn't the first time we've been warned of imminent terror attacks, it seems almost evry summer a warning is issued, which comes to pass with no attacks, but people forget because they're too distracted gearing up for the next season of American Idol. Is the reason the media needs official confirmation because they know that in order for the official terrorist attack to occur, it has to be allowed (or be another government black op) like 9/11.
Make no mistake, the next attack won't benefit terrorists, but will benefit the corpocracy, defense contractors, neocons, and Israel-firsters like John Hagee. The people of the Middle East, if they wish to attack the US, need only to wander into Iraq (like most of the anti-Americans over there are doing anyway) to strike at us.
