BUSH EXTENDED FAMILY PHOTO taken January 20, 2005

Yet, not one -- not one -- of any of Bush's children or his nieces and nephews have volunteered for service in any branch of the military or volunteered to serve in any capacity in Iraq. Not one of them has felt the cause was noble enough to put his or her life on the line.

Olympia, WA-- If the state of Washington passes a joint legislative resolution next month calling on the U.S. House of Representatives to initiate impeachment proceedings against President Bush and Vice President Cheney, it will be because the 900 people who crammed into this capital city's Center for the Performing Arts last Tuesday evening, and countless others across the state, pushed them into it.

Shirley Smith: It's All About Respect


Without feelings of respect, what is there to distinguish men from beasts? -- Confucius, Analects, sixth century B.C.E.

Shirley Smith: Well, Pardon Me!



The Supreme Court set the pattern of usurping power through the GOP judges appointed throughout our court system (just do it, don't tell, and threaten anyone to ask) when they put their guy into the oval office in the year 2000.

(An aside, does that include Sam Brownback and Gov. Huckabee, David?) He also allows that the Clintons engaged in a variety of various episodes of financial hanky-panky when they were in the White House, all this from a former enthusiastic Clinton supporter and major contributor.

Subject: New York and LA Times Kept Blair Iraq Troop Announcement Off Front Pages


Apparently Tony Blair hasn't learned a thing this past 6 years -- he's still using George Bush's toothpaste! It's quite evident he still believes everything the "liar in chief" tells him! "Tony Blair said yesterday that Britain could safely cut its forces in Iraq because the apparatus of the Iraqi government is growing stronger. In fact the civil war is getting worse by the day."

by Brent Budowsky

There are now multiple reports from Sunni women that they were raped by men serving in Iraqi forces. Few issues are more inflammatory in a country and region full of terrorist war, insurgent war, sectarian war, and religious war.

If ex-NBA star Tim Hardaway hates gays
One could argue it wasn't wise
To play basketball where he'd often have to
Take showers near naked guys.
