Predictably, some critics have decried the current efforts by Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. to buy the Dow Jones company, which publishes The Wall Street Journal. But let's imagine the dynamics that might emerge if Murdoch gains control of that newspaper.

If Senators Hillary Clinton (D-NY) and Robert Byrd (D-WV) really want to bring this Bush/Cheney administration to heel, they should be calling not for revocation of the 2002 Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF), but for the revocation of the 2001 AUMF.

A recent Harris Poll indicated that only 22% of Americans support George's war of terror. I suspect the less than one-fourth of our country who are still in favor of the hopeless mess that BushCo has tragically involved the USA gets all of their "news" from Fox News.

Anthony Cordesman, of the Center for Strategic and International Studies, is of the opinion that Congress imposing benchmarks contingent upon troop withdrawal would have little effect. Benchmarks and timetables are unrealistic, he holds, since Iraq has no central goverment nor rule of law. Iraq, he insists, needs our presence to give them time to work out compromises.


And so it begins, the Repuglican Party is blowing up the Bridge to the 21st Century that Bill Clinton built! "Rudy Giuliani said in campaign debate Thursday night ‘it would be OK' ‘if the Supreme Court upholds a 1973 landmark abortion rights ruling. It would be OK to repeal it.' It would be OK also if a strict constructionist viewed it as precedent,' said the former New York city mayor ... Giuliani's nine GOP rivals agreed that it would be a great day if the court overturns the landmark ruling." While our soldiers are dying in an illegitimate war in Iraq, these Repuglican lunatics are debating abortion! Rather than defeating oppression in this world, these guys are promoting it, rather than progression, they are peddling regression and weakening our freedoms and democracy! If allowed to continue, just how long will it take them to completely assume the mantle of the Taliban? How long before women will have to don burkas and forgo education? How long before women will be publicly executed in sports arenas across this land? The Repuglican agenda is intolerable and unacceptable! These guys, all of them are a disgrace to humanity and don't deserve any accommodation whatsoever!

Work on "honest" smile
To help lie more easily;
Practice clasping hands
Without looking weasely.

The impeachment train is starting to roll.

Last week, Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH), started things off by filing a three-article bill of impeachment against Vice President Dick Cheney. Initially largely ignored by the mainstream media, and even ridiculed by some leading Democrats in Congress, that bill, HR 333, Wednesday garnered two co-sponsors, Rep. William Lacy Clay (D-MO) and Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), the latter a chief deputy whip and senior member of the House congressional leadership.

Will Durst: The Scourge Of Mockolate

I never thought I'd be talking smack about the Hershey Company. It makes me feel like I'm wiping my oily hands on the prom dress of America's sweetheart. We all know Hershey. We all love Hershey. For crum's sakes, they're the chocolate people. Got a whole town named after them. The sugar rush dealers of our youth: Almond Joy, Mounds, Kit Kat, Reese's Pieces, and of course, the ubiquitous Hershey Bar. Which, if you believe all of the fairy tales of the Greatest Generation, were used in WW II to acquire the overnight company of comely foreign-born ladies. What could be more American?
