Who Killed the Kids?

I may not be the person to point out another's sloppy writing, but I can only make guesses about who was responsible for these four dead and two injured kids.

What clues did I miss to be able to think one thing or another with any certainity at all?

Day After Election Day Body Count

2154 Dead American soldiers. Not too shabby, we should let them vote more often.

Pesticide Babies

Today is the last day for public comment for the grand scam to pay poor people to let them poison their kids.

Today is also a fine day to tell your congressmen that you aren't buying into this legislation that will exempt drug companies from any liability resulting from a use of their products.

The proposal protects manufacturers from even gross negligence and reckless behavior, but provides no compensation for first responders and ordinary individuals who may suffer serious illness or death as a result of taking a public health emergency vaccine or other countermeasure. Moreover, the provision is being put together in a backroom deal—it was not passed by either the House or the Senate, nor was it ever debated on either Chamber’s floor.
Any legislation that provides liability protections to manufacturers without ensuring that first responders and others injured by emergency vaccines and other countermeasures are compensated is extremely unfair and short-sighted.

If The Washington Post Had A Decent Political Editor

It occurs to me that Plamegate should have been told a long time ago, the pieces are there, but John Harris would rather sound sufficiently conservative than ask the questions and follow up questions and tell the stories from beginning to end as the facts come out rather than determining the narrative and telling the parts that fit into that narrative regardless of relevance or truth.

Am I really supposed to believe that John Harris is worried about credibility when his paper devotes a serious chunk of real estate to a writer who doesn't think that he needs to disclose his own financial interests in the stories he writes or who has admitted to intervening in a democratic exercise to assure the outcome would meet his own desires.

John Harris does his readers and his country a great disservice with this manipulation of the information that we must have to be competitive, competent and relevant on the world stage and to be free and strong at home.

The Washington post should hang it's head in shame that they have been obstructing the necessary flow of information to their public; they have been hiding behind the reputation of the newspaper built upon the reliability of the woman whose life's work they are trying to dismantle.

The stories that need to be told so that all Americans can understand well enough to agree or disagree based on the solid foundation of WHO, WHAT, WHY, WHERE,WHEN, and HOW. We deserve to know what goes on in our name we deserve to know if our leaders have taken our well being seriously. We demand to know the parameters of our society, what is our economic outlook-honestly, not the glam edition.

The Washington Post should hang their heads in shame that the dots have been connected by people who juggled jobs, families and economic hardships to bring the stories to light while they sat around with their well paid jobs brainstorming ways to make the Democrats' role in this fiasco look worse than that of the "personal responsibility" Ruling Party.

Take a thorough look at some of the work that wasn't done by top newspapers and media companies with financial gains to be made in the weapons and information industries. Name any series in The Washington Post that has been so carefully documented and tied down from information that has fallen by the wayside.


Twelve electrifying stories woven together tight enough to conduct electricity free for the taking. I think that a responsible guardian of the First Ammendment rights that have made your profession and your very way of life possible would fact check this story nine ways to Sunday and release it to the millions of people who have a stake in the continuation of the American dreams of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Certainly, an Editor has more pressing duties than sitting around dreaming up ways to muddy the waters, to create unnecessary controversy just because he's powerful and he can. Certainly, any editor who took pride in their work would be looking at some of the important stories of our time like this one or this one, and fact-checking them to see what he was missing.

It is possible that an Editor of on of the foremost newspapers in America might ask why this post opened with a picture of the arctic meltdown happening on the only home we have. My friend Suntripper wants to know why that picture wasn't on the front page of every newspaper, the leading story on the nightly news.

If you have some spare time, you should tell her why.

Happy Happy Iraq

It appears that Iraqis are magically happy 71% according to ABC's Nightline! Happy days are here again. Everybody is good and getting better every day, they are even starting to have faith and hope in their own army.

It is all because they are having an election. This makes me love President Bush even more than Brian Williams did this morning. More than the First Lady having fun on the Sears-o-mercial last night.

This is good, getting better every day. The President's approval rating jumped to 40% then 42% without explanation . Those dogs aren't barking though nobody is asking why.

Happy days are here again, the President is popular not out of touch or irrational, we are all wealthy, Iraq is peaceful and prosperous, the First Lady is doing T.V. all over the place and choco rations are going to rise any time now.

Things We Don't Talk About Part 2

PNAC. Who are those men who wished for "a catalyzing and catastrophic event" like "a new Pearl Harbor" so we could spend more on defense and have eternal war?

Things We Don't Talk About Part 1

Whyy did the aim to eliminate the disabled veteran's tax fizzled out while the top 2% are weaaring themselves out collecting Congressional goodies with ease?

Fighting for peace is like screwing for virginity


Remaking the President

Brian Williams has already done two cozy segments with Schmookie Presideny Bush. No, You're Schmookie!

I learned that he's not a racist, that I do have his ear, and now I am learning how well informed he is.

He looks at the paper every morning, occasionally watches the T.V., he watches clips, and people walk into his office all day long.

Of course I know what's going on!!!

Bubble Boy Denies Being Out of Touch

NBC's Brian Williams had a good happy talk with junior who said that he wasn't isolated and that he gets advice from plenty of people so that people from all walks of life are represented.

I may have let my blood sugar levels drop too low. Maybe not.

He just said that he doesn't understand why people can't feel how good the economy is.

Maybe it's the 4.8 million new burger flipping jobs and the .2 million new bill collectors.
