Frivolous Lawsuits

What are the chances that Bush is really trying to stop Monsanto from suing small dairy farms for advertising that their milk is hormone free?

I didn't think so either.

Do You Ever Wonder?

Why all those people who haven't been able to save or invest in anything keep saying that they can do a better job with their money than the government can?

Think about it, if 6.25% of their income is deducted for their Social Security contribution, What have they done with the other 93.75% of their money?

United We Can

This is really cool.

United We Can helps people become self sufficient while improving the lives of everyone else. Sounds like a good idea to me.

Bush Denial

Josh is perplexed about the president's apparent lack of support in this state where he took 59% of the vote only three months ago.

Actually it is not really that hard to understand. We aren't stupid here, and while he did take 59% of the vote, his support is only skin deep and getting thinner by the day.

My friends that voted for him did it in a guarded and guilty way. They were listening to me but they desperately needed to believe that I was wrong.

Most people believed that they were choosing the least of two evils. They are starting to realize that the walk and the talk don't match up.

They are noticing that the economy is in the tank. They are noticing that the corruption and greed can hurt the people around them.

Can you say asbestos? They know that people in Libby have been dying for years and that their chosen president is not standing behind the people who were just trying to care for their families.

I think that they are becomming more uncomfortable with his attitude about torture. They are starting to see the effects of all those reckless tax cuts. They don't really want kids and single parent families to suffer and go without medical care.

They like the idea of having clean water and they want enough policemen on the streets.

They are understanding that Tom Delay's interests aren't their own and they wonder about the wisdom of killing the wild horses.

We have two Senators and one Representative who are on increasingly shaky ground here and they are all up for re-election in less than two years. My friends and neighbors may have chosen Bush, but they are finding out that they don't like his policies.

Maybe if I change enough settings our long national nightmare will end.

Visible Print

Can you see it now?

Bauchus Live !

The Bauchus Social Security Event is live right here.

Of course I'm still trying to download the software...

Right On Cue

Spontaneous feel-good moment during State of the Union speech has me wondering how much taxpayers paid to fly this woman into Iraq to vote and back to the First Lady's side?

Goebbles would be proud.

Political theater is good ground coverto divert your eyes from another move that would make Tony Soprano stare in awe.

Gearing Up For Bush Burns And Rehberg

The National Guard is busy securing the city for the first stop of the BAMBOOZLEPALOOZA TOUR. I would love to be there, but it's just not possible today.

Check out Senator Bauchus's op-ed in today's Billings Gazette.

Got Combat Boots?

Dear Mr. Man

There's nothing like The State of The Union to make me want to break out in a song. Thanks to Prince for this one:

What's wrong with the world 2day?
Things just got 2 get better
Sho ain't what the leaders say
Maybe we should write a letter

Dear Mr. Man
We don't understand
Y poor people keep on struggling
And U don't lend a helping hand

Matthew 5:5 say:
The meek shall inherit the Earth
We wannabe down that way
But U been trippin' since the day of Ur birth

Who said that 2 kill is a sin
And started every single war
That ur people been in?
Who said that water
Is a precious commodity
Then dropped a big, ol' black oil slick
In the deep blue sea?

Who told me Mr. Man
That working around the clock
Will buy me a big house in the 'hood
With cigarette ads on every block?

Who told me Mr. Man
That I got a right to moan?
How 'bout this big ol' hole in the ozone?

What's wrong with the world 2day?
Things just got 2 get better
Dear Mr. Man, we don't understand
Maybe we should write a letter

Ain't no sense in voting
Same song with a different name
Might not be in back of the bus
But it sho' feel just the same
Ain't nothing fair about welfare
Ain't no assistance in AIDS
Ain't nothing affirmative about your actions
'Til the people get paid!

Ur thousand years r up, Mr. Man
Now you got 2 share the land
Section 1, the 14th Amendment says:
No state shall deprive any person
Of life, liberty or property
Without due process of the law

Mr. Man,
We want 2 end this letter with 3 words
"We tired U'all!"

Ain't That America

Jill Valley just reported about a nine year old boy whose mother sold bumper stickers on ebay so that he could get his brain tumor (named Frank!) removed.

What a shame that has to happen in a country that has no qualms about dropping Five billion bucks a month on a war of convenience. We don't mind paying journalists major money to act like they love Bush's plans and who really cares if W. ant the P.R. crew jet off to a different location several times a day to do some more campaigning.

Of course we don't mind spending money on the kids if it is to test pesticides or something important in this "culture of life" that Dear Leeder likes to say so often.

Denny To Ride Air Force One

Surely he wouldn't sell our Social Security for a little ride on Air Force One, would he?

Well Denny boy is on the teevee telling stories that aren't quite true while he ignores the problems we do have (some of which he had a hand in their creation and/or exacerbated with his corporate butt kissing).

Bush would like it very much if I had to scrounge in the gutter for a place to sleep and a bite to eat.

He is twisting everything to fit his goal of fixing it once and for all.

I could fix my health froblems once and for all, but it means that I would have to cease to live--that is the goal of his plan to abolish Social Security.

No Bushit

Rallies in Helena and Great Falls to show opposition to the the Bush plan to phase out Social Security.

Details here.

Nightline By The Numbers

Did they say it?

Maybe it is because they have minders that they just danced around it. (very disturbing indeed)

I'll say it! The President is lying!

There is No Crisis

Counting Caskets


Catastrophic success just keeps digging doesn't it?

Emancipation Ejaculation

Please tell me that this is all a halucination. I thought that CBS's John Roberts reported that Medicare would start paying for Viagra next year.

I wonder which Dick head came up with that one?

Gonzales Is Unfit To Be Attorney General

The day that Americans must stand up to their givernment to demand that the laws of our Constitution must be obeyed as well as the agreements that we've had with other peoples over time.

Gonzales needs an attorney of his own, not a reward for breaking the law in word and deed.

Insanity- repeating the same behavior and expecting different results.

Have we realized our 1967 moment yet?
