Three U.S. Marines, one Army soldier and several other Americans were killed in attacks this week, the U.S. Military said in statements, pushing the total number of U.S. military deaths to 2,000, since the start of the Iraq war.

Four U.S. contractors were killed last month when their convoy took a wrong turn, drove into a town north of Baghdad and was attacked by an angry mob, a Senior U.S. military official said. There was no explanation for why the military did not report the deaths earlier.

SUPPORTING RACIST PIGS : THAT'S THE REAL POINT!!!!

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 RALLIES HELD AROUND THE WORLD

Submitted by hippie on September 24, 2005 - 11:49pm.
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 . . .

Submitted by TheDude on September 6, 2005 - 10:35pm.
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.

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.

ALFRED E NEWMAN RUNS DC!

Submitted by hippie on July 11, 2005 - 7:22pm.
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!

REDNECK RIVIERA TAKES IT AGAIN

Submitted by hippie on July 10, 2005 - 12:32pm.
FIRST SHARKS, NOW HURRICANES! The "Redneck Riviera", the beaches along the Gulf of Mexico from Mississippi to Florida, is about to get hit bad by hurricane "Dennis", a category 4 - 155 mph son-of-a-bitch. Folks from Destin, Fla. to Gulf Shores, Alabama are hauling ass north, and that's not easy for a lot of good ole southern country boys who still remember another war! We wish them the best. Pensacola Beach or Ft. Walton Beach look like ground zero. Reporters are calling "Dennis" a killer hurricane in their attempts to 'out report' each other. Our diversions from the "politics" of life seem unending! Every disaster, natural or man made, overwhems the populace (us) with information, much of it repeatitive or unnecessary, so we are forced to set aside our other concerns, G8, LIVE 8, IRAQ, London bombings, Bush/bin Laden Family connections, starving people, etc. Last night, Levon Helm and friends, were on a hour long special on the history of "The Band". Amazing! Three young folks were interviewed on CNN a while ago as the hurricane approached, they had decided to hang in there and stay. They appeared to have seen Levon, last night.
