Rice, Gates win no new Arab help in Iraq. Methinks the Arabs have figured out that supporting the guys who started this whole disaster in Iraq and brought catastrophe to the entire Middle East was nothing more than a continued effort in futility!  America needs leadership that can be trusted, leadership that will regain the respect we once had in this world.  Impeach Bush/Cheney; send them back to the ranch or to prison where they can do no further harm!

Next week, in my upstate New York hometown, people will come from all over to attend the 47th Annual Pageant of Steam.

Farmers, aficionados, and the merely curious will wander a hundred acres of displays -- antique, steam-powered tractors and threshers, steam engines that pulled plows and powered machines to dig wells, cut lumber, and make shingles. Most of them still work.

Kathy's take on President Bush's legacy
Which I completely agree with is that
The guy you wanted to have a beer with
You now would like to throw a beer at.

As far as revealing dark secrets to the public
There's no point now in stalling them:
Dick Cheney has not only been taking shots
But he clearly has been calling them.

It is time to think about the "unthinkable." The Bush Administration has both the inclination and the power to cancel the 2008 election. The GOP strategy for another electoral theft in 2008 has taken clear shape, though we must assume there is much more we don't know.

Democratic leadership recognizes that ethics reform and the issue of corruption are front and center as to why they won back the House and Senate in November of that year. Following is a short list of the most recent government officials to be indicted, convicted, under investigation, or resigned under a cloud of corruption.

It must be hard to be a factory farmer these days. First there's the problem of finding workers.

If they appear to be legal, how do you know they're not undercover animal advocates with cameras who will make you an overnight animal abuse criminal on the Internet?

Journey for Humanity and Accountability, Final Day

Before I headed to our "Gather-In of Hearts" in Central Park West this afternoon, I was watching NBC's Meet the Press. Except for a brief excerpt about the Alberto Gonzales hearing this week, the entire show was about Obama vs. Hillary.

Revealing if not enlightening, one small paragraph in a bunch of mumbo jumbo, that certainly did not justify the Washington Post’s coverage of “cleavage”! “Stories about the physical appearance of candidates, from Al Gore's earth-tones wardrobe to John Edwards's $400 haircut to a bathing-suit shot of Barack Obama in a People spread on "Beach Babes," have long been an entertaining sideshow.” The “entertaining sideshows” seem to involve Democratic candidates more often than not!
