Help! We are surrounded by crooked politicians, lobbyists, special interest groups, and possibly that greatest of all enemies of freedom - apathy. Scouting reports from all over the State indicate that we are poised to take the Governor’s Mansion, but I need your help now!

Sure, Karl Rove is a crook and liar. Tom DeLay is a fascist. Newt Gingrich no longer mentions his 'little book' of right wing wishes.

Anti-war sentiment is growing in the US with a majority now wanting to see the troops come home. Tens of thousands of anti-war protesters gathered in Washington to call for US troops to leave Iraq, now!

They held signs referring to the levees that were breached by Hurricanes Katrina & Rita, flooding New Orleans and Lake Charles, Louisiana. The rally attracted a diverse mix - from first-time demonstrators to those who had opposed the Vietnam War. Other rallies were held in many US and European cities.

On the blame game . . .

I don't think there is any question about what needs to be given and done and if there is one thing that Americans (even our oft-maligned corporations) are generally good for is volunteering and pulling out the wallet when it is truly needed.

I know it is hard to hear sometimes, and it can make you feel a little dirty, but I strongly feel that now is the time to ask the hard questions and spread some well deserved blame around.  If not now, when?

Certianly New Orleans will be in the news for months/years to come, but after a few weeks it is not going to be the only story, it will be sharing airtime with Iraq, Supreme Court nominations, missing pretty white girls and shark attacks.  America, for all her greatness, has a notoriously short attention span and all the fools who made these mistakes need to feel the full force of our anger and outrage now.

Your dog bites you, you've got to whack him with the paper right there and then, not days later, or he won't understand.  And thats about the level at which we need to treat our government right now: that of an untrained scrappy pet.

After World War II we said "Never again," and then the Sudan, Ethiopia, the Congo, Cambodia, Uganda... in Bosnia we tried to say it, in Darfur we stood by silently, in Iraq we try.

We need to stand the fuck up and make it known in no uncertian terms that any of our rulers who had any part in this tragedy will not be our rulers for long.  We need to speak to them in their own language by convicting the criminals and sending the rest packing.

We must to send them back to their vacation homes and their country clubs and dig somewhere deeper within ourselves to find a class of rulers that actually has some small measure of competency and compassion for our citizens.

Now is precicely the time to bring the full force of the people of this Republic to bear on those haughty leaders who have failed us so spectacularly.  Never again.

A statement on the current state of politics and power in America

These people are peddling hate and division, and that is wrong. It never turns out well when we let people like this run our governments.

                           Austin Independent School District Superintendent Forgione


is moving the so-called Magnet Schools (special schools within schools each specializing in Math, English, etc., usually placed within the poorest rating schools to attract a 'higher level' of students) from across town to Albert Sidney Johnston High School on Austin's Hispanic East side, so that the present Texas State standards for education rating will rise; no kidding!

In other words, transfer the well educated ‘white kids’ from their neighborhood schools to Johnston (21% limited English skills, 76% economically disadvantaged, only 41% meet standards) to raise the overall testing levels. The only problem is, the ‘well off’ don’t want their kids in such a poor educational setting either anymore. These kids and all of our children deserve better or at least the truth. We are at fault as parents and voters to allow this. Shame on us, Austin!

A Liberal Dose

"Rants And Insights Into The Wild And Wacky World Of Contemporary American Politics"

It has been suggested by 'A Liberal Dose' web site, that citizens leave a package of "dung" (shit) at Karl Rove's family household . A map, phone numbers, and other vital information is provided. Folks seem to be waking up to what Bush, Rove (his assistant - Chief of Staff and Presidential "Brain") are up to, trying to hide their IRAQ-Africa-Uranium-CIA problem. Read the columns along the borders of this web site. Listen & Learn. By the way, does it seem strange to anyone else out there in la-la land, that identification papers were readidly found of the London bombers (local folks!) in the wreakage and in a rental car? More coming from them and us! bye, hippie

TEXAS SENATE SENDS BILL TO HOUSE Is it for real or is the Texas Senate & Texas House (contact these bastards) really attempting to stop the Supreme Court's recent ruling concerning the huge expanse of the 'Laws of Eminent Domain' (the power of a government to take private property for public use, usually with compensation paid to the owner). The Court ruled that a government enity can 'take' private property and give/sell it to a PRIVATE developer. Now, eminent domain has always been used to build roads, sidewalks, sewers, public buildings, etc, things that benefit all of the community. NOT private developement, where yet another immoral developer and his corporate pals / congresstional goons / money benefactors all benefit at the loss of your Constitutional Right to Own Property - 5th Ammendment. Interesting enough is the history of the annexation of Texas by the U.S. (from THSA). Texans, remember where we came from.

TREASON IN THE WHITE HOUSE? Pres Bush and his side-kick Karl Rove "had a bad day at The White House", reports CBS. Rove, who for nearly two years has been saying that he is not involved in the 'leaking' of the name of a CIA SECRET OPERATIVE, is now not talking. Nor is Pres Press Secretary McClellan, who has been babbling his mouth off in an attempt to divert attention from what is involving into a real problem for 'The Boys'. If you haven't, look into this folks. This is the real deal (NIXON). What it gets down to is TREASON. Rove, still holds his high security clearance, has exposed the idenity of a person who for years has devoted their life in an attempt to protect creeps like this, endangering their life. CNN repotrs all this in a interview from two years ago (on tape), where Rove acts as if he had no idea of what was up! It's normal in Washington to 'leak' political information, but to expose a CIA Operative........from inside THE WHITE HOUSE! Could all this be involved with the "G8' boys, the Bush/ bin Laden Family affairs, etc? As far as Alfred E Newman (look it up if you don't know) running Washington, that comes from Hillary, and is probably accurate! Oil prices droped today and gasoline prices went up!
