If the Democrats take power this November they will probably continue the same policies as Bush. We know this because Clinton did basically the same thing when he was in office. To think otherwise is to ignore history and the Democrat's record. The "Anybody but Bush" (ABB) movement is founded on a basically irrational hatred of Bush that completely ignores the record of the Democrats the last time they were in power. The ABB movement practices a double standard: when Republicans do something it’s wrong but when Democrats do the same thing it’s okay (or didn’t happen at all). In party politics it is always the other party’s fault, never the system’s fault. If a Democrat were in office and implemented the same policies Bush has most of the ABBers would support him. We know this because Clinton implemented many of the same policies ABBers criticize Bush for, yet they didn’t develop the same kind of hatred towards Clinton they have towards Bush. Most outright supported Clinton and the minority who didn’t support him did not develop the kind of irrational hatred towards Clinton they have towards Bush.

1. Have you seen these photos before? 2. What do you think caused the damage? 3. Which photo was taken more recently? 4. In which country do you think each photo was taken? 5. What season or time of year was each photo taken? 6. What very specific events are these photos of?
Iraqis the victims of both Saddam and USA's illegal occupation are being forced to pay reparations for crimes that Saddam committed. And Saddam was, in the first place, financed by some of the same govts. who are seeking reparation from their victims, the Iraqis. In short, you rape the victim and then convict her for crimes committed by her tyrant guardian who you support in the first place! If this is not obvious to educated people especially the ones supporting this illegitimate war, then little else will be.
The article below describes the recent mutiny of U.S. soldiers in Iraq. As you have likely heard, one reason the troops refused to complete their mission had to do with the poor state of their equipment and the increased risk that might place them in. No doubt that would be a concern. But the more important reason for the demoralization spreading among “the troops” is the increasingly undeniable fact that they are seen by most Iraqis as a “thieving occupation gang” which is rightly viewed as the greatest obstacle to their freedom and general welfare. As many of the GI’s have come to realize they were “lied into war” for the benefit of oil barons and other corporate parasites and rich people, they are increasingly unwilling to risk their lives in the implementation of the crime the Iraqi partisans are so fiercely resisting.
They do need and deserve our support. We must demand the immediate and complete departure of all U.S. forces from that beleaguered nation. Nothing less will stop the dying. At least 1100 GI’s and countless Iraqis have been lost as of today. How many more must be sacrificed for the lie?
Murders of hundreds of young women in Juarez, Mexico still plague the border region. Thousands more are reported to have disappeared over the past decade, yet in real terms nothing has been done to end what has become a serious humanitarian crisis that no one in the US should overlook.
To the gentle reader: how a home can be entered, without any signs of broken entry, its inhabitant kidnapped to psychiatric hospitals, tortured, and Sig Heiled by the police in Bayside, Queens, New York City with the full connivance of the politically correct and get away with it!

Could somebody please tell me how this alternate reality appeared totally blotting out the well-documented history of election 2000. The alternate reality I am speaking of is the one that seems to have taken over the minds of the Democratic Party and their party hacks like Paul Bagala a host on CNN's Croosfire who up until Nader announced his candidacy to run for the presidency in 2004 claimed over and over and over again on the air that George Bush and the Republican dominated Supreme Court stole the presidential election in 2000. All across America Democrats screamed about the theft of the election over over and over again.
Mary Cheney, one of the Cheney's daugheters--"the gay one"--has been an object of much attention in the media recently. But how much do we think we know about Mary? From her rumored participation in Human Shield to her work for Coors, we examine the phenomenon that is the Vice President's daughter.

Carsten Kofoed, Spokesman of the Danish Committee for a Free Iraq, 16.10.2004 13:31
Denmark has become a member of the UN Security Council. It is a scandal because the Danish government as late as March 2003, with ill-concealed arrogance, violated the UN Charter, joined the illegal US war on Iraq, and is now continuing as an active participant in the just as illegal occupation.
Heroes: 19 members of a supply platoon, often under attack, refused to go on a mission in Iraq in broken down vehicles with contaminated gasoline. Members have been detained and face discipline. Where are all those Halliburton and Bechtel dollars?
Since September 11 Britain has been warned of the 'inevitability' of catastrophic terrorist attack. But has the danger been exaggerated? A major new TV documentary claims that the perceived threat is a politically driven fantasy - and al-Qaida a dark illusion.
The Power of Nightmares seeks to overturn much of what is widely believed about Osama bin Laden and al-Qaida. The latter, it argues, is not an organised international network. It does not have members or a leader. It does not have "sleeper cells". It does not have an overall strategy. In fact, it barely exists at all, except as an idea about cleansing a corrupt world through religious violence.
The following vote abuses aren't aberrations. They're the inevitable result of a Republican Party culture in which dirty tricks that distort the vote are rewarded, notpunished. It's a culture that will persist until voters - whose will still does count, if expressed strongly enough - hold that party accountable.
Here is the confirmation of just how bad the situation is in Iraq. The “green zone” is no longer safe. Our troops are disillusioned and, as the article below shows, some are refusing to follow orders. But still the talking heads of the Bush administration tell us that things are “improving.”
Please consider this startling article and an amazing email from a Wall Street Journal reporter that you can also hear at http://www.onpointradio.org/shows/2004/10/fassihiemail.htm Spread them around. Our people are being totally lied to every day by their government and the corporate media. We are talking a total blackout of the truth. Don’t stand for it. jamie
