Some come slowly to the realization of where they are in their time. By that I am referring to having a sense of who you are and what you stand for, a sense people tend to have for others but not for themselves. This sense develops over a lifetime with age and experience.
The year was 1969 and I was sixteen. Outside of a prosaic life of school and idle summers at the lake, the world was experiencing Woodstock, love-ins, peace marches, and music the likes of which had never been heard before. But I watched 1969 go sailing by without me on the boat. And I cursed my time for being born too late.
Let’s start thinking ahead about post-war reconstruction. What will we do with our returning vets? My first answer is that, in America, we don’t “do” returning vets. But even if we did, we wouldn’t know what to do.
I say, let’s build a society that Americans can live in. Donate your old Winnebago to a homeless person and skip the European vacation this year. Stop being so selfish, all you yuppies, and take a break from counting your money for a change.
Here is a wandering account of a vet who almost waited too long to open his heart to the people who finally heard him. Read on
By John Gray. Originally on the web around 2004, this is an excent refresher that explains how Republicans don’t acknowledge the good things done by Democrats.
Gray describes a middle-class Republican who goes through his life benefiting from legislation passed by Democrats but then curses “big government” at the end of the day. The article lists the following protections enacted by Democrats, which every voter should consider before going to the dark side.
These achievements were opposed by Republicans at the time.
Some may question the motives of Rove or call for his termination, but a better question is whether Rove should be tried for high treason, which has the death penalty. I say no, because the enemy of darkness is light.
Evil has reared its head in the White House, and now the world can see the role of Rove in helping the idiot orchestrate war. The Prince of Darkness has apparently had control over Karl for some time. The war on terrorism has been successful at increasing the level of hatred in the world. Satan is cashing in. But why the calls to fire Karl? Karl belongs to Satan and the president is only his puppet (see White House maintains confidence).
We all know the truth is bad, we just don’t want to hear the details. So what should we do? It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in princes. (Psalm 118:8,9).
“It’s like a pair of blinders has been removed and I’m suddenly seeing for myself what I’ve long known to be the case: just how sanitized a version of the war the American mainstream media are delivering, and how little of even this cleaned-up coverage we get.” – Arianna Huffington: Iraq: The War We Are Not Being Shown
Satan will “go out to deceive the nations which are in the earth,” (Rev 20:8), and many will follow him.”
How does Bush confront the truth? “If someone committed a crime, they will no longer work in my administration.” – George W. Bush, Remarks to Reporters, July 18, 2005.
From Club de Madrid Series on Democracy and Terrorism. This group of dignitaries met during winter and spring of 2005, as guests of the King of Spain. The website has a place to download pdf files on the causes of Terrorism, and confronting Terrorism.
The agenda of the Club de Madrid meetings was to remember and honour the victims of the terrorist attacks of March 11, 2004, the strength and courage of the citizens of Madrid, and through them, all victims of terrorism and those who confront its threat.
America is in the midst of a revolution right now. This isn’t an armed rebellion; there are no guns being used on Americans. Those who are aware of the New Revolution don’t call it that. Those who aren’t aware, … well, aren’t aware. The revolution will be over before they wake up.
Part of the anonymity of the Second American Revolution is that the two sides and the issues cross traditional boundaries. There is no us and them. But by our actions, some of us are feeding the fires of this war.
A Republican Congressman told CNN on June 27 that the “evidence is clear” that Iraq was involved in the terrorist attacks against the United States on September 11, 2001. Although his story is a contradiction to President Bush’s 911 commission, the Congressman told reporters, “you must have looked in the wrong places.”
It isn’t clear where the Congressman got his information. But Bush’s 9/11 commission report said investigators found no evidence that any “contacts ever developed into a collaborative operational relationship.” Read full story at CNN.
Let Them Eat War, by Arlie Hochschild. Why did the blue collar voters go for Bush?
One of the Bush team’s new plans is to more than triple the amount of area that the BLM sprays with toxic herbicides. The new draft EIS on their new herbicide program proposes to spray nearly a MILLION ACRES per year. Now that’s management! Also they are adding four new herbicides to the approved list to help support the toxic chemical industry. Chemists RULE!
The Bush administration altered critical portions of a scientific analysis of the environmental impact of cattle grazing on public lands before announcing Thursday that it would relax regulations limiting grazing on those lands, according to scientists involved in the study. Read the story.

“Why the Right Hates The Truth” was penned by Jonas Luster, author of Socialtext, in parody to another essay, “Why the Left Hates John Bolton”. Jonas’ post has apparently vanished from the web, or at least only this site and one other (wingnut) were found by a Google search for the essay. In the meantime, keep in mind why the Right loves John Bolton …
… and then, I’ll **crush** their puny heads…
