Rise and Fall

"If anyone reproaches me and asks why I did not resort to the regular courts of justice, then all I can say is this: In this hour I was responsible for the fate of the German people, and thereby I became supreme judge of the German people."

quote from a 1934 speech by Adolf Hitler from The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich

It's making the rounds here in response to Bush's defiance of the law where illegal wiretapping is involved

Battle Hardened Soldiers

Let's see if I get this story straight.

It seems that the Pentagon and their pals are having a major fear reaction to a cartoonist who noted the consequences to soldiers of the callous and sloppy management at the Pentagon so they try to bully the cartoonist because these are poor hardworking middle Americans who can stand in the battlefield without armor for years on end but they will crumble because somebody wasn't properly avoiding the fact that poor hardworking middle Americans who stand in battlegrounds year after year without proper armor can have some really painful things happen to them and people might be rude enough to notice that the poor hardworking middle Americans continue to get blown up and Donnie Dearest continues to go on about business as usual without bothering to make sure the troops in the field have everything they need and somebody might notice that and there would be hard feelings from all that irresponsibility.

So the Pentagon immediately drops everything they were doing
to go on an intensive letter writing campaign to the Washington Post about their cartoonist because shutting people up is a hell of a lot more important to them than supplying their troops with the equipment they need to do the jobs they were sent to do.

It is about priorities, isn't it?

Will there be more letters now?

Army Forces 50,000 Soldiers Into Extended Duty

Not everybody of course, just men and women who have already answered the call to service. How is this different than forced labor?

Did NBC Montana Slander Max Baucus?

Why did the reporter state that Max Baucus took Abramoff's money when his name is not on the list of recipients here?

The reporter, a male I am not familiar with made a deliberate point to ask the young lady who organized a Move On rally against corruption in D.C. why they were protesting Burns and Rehberg and not Baucus, he took Abramoff's money,too. God Bless that young woman, she froze then told him it's because this is a Republican scandal.

NBC Montana
should make a full and crystal clear correction because Abramoff did not give any money to any Democrats at all.
