Throw the book! Throw the Constitution! Throw the Bill of Rights! Throw every US law available! What is it going to take?

Damn right, somebody needs to pay for trying to abuse our troops by keeping them away from any public contact and held in individual cells of political policies. Support the troops? Somebody needs to pay for these constant abuses to our troops. Young people, away from home, some probably for the first time in their lives. If there are any walls to be built, how about one around the White House and cut all communication to the world? If we can't get them out, wall them in.  


People ask me: Are they going to steal the 2008 election? No, they’ve already stolen the 2008 election. We still have a chance of swiping it back, but the reason I’ve expanded and put out the new edition of Armed Madhouse is to tell you how they will steal in 2008, and what to do about it. That’s one of the main new things. Plus a special chapter on New Orleans and my bust down there.

Charlie Jackson: September in the Fall

by Charlie Jackson

Robert Gates: "Sir, were you aware that 4 million Iraqis have fled their homes?"
Dick Cheney: "Let me know when there's only one left."

Variations of the above joke are circulating around Baghdad and refugee camps as plans are being made by both U.S. military and the opposition for a decisive summer victory or a fall.

Cronyism, thy name is Bush and the Repuglican Party!!!  “... new documents released by a special committee of The World Bank Group show that a team at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher did sign off on the deal. That team included President Bush’s former Solicitor General Ted Olson and Eugene Scalia, son of conservative Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.”  They came to Washington, D.C. to get rich!  The next time one of these charlatans says they came to serve, remember they really mean self-serving and using someone else’s money to do it!

A whiny demand like this when he has
No support is both sad & odd
I almost feel sorry for Shaha who spent
So much time under this clod.

Dear LeBron:

At the tender age of 22, you have the galactic talent to make us wonder if a mad scientist had Magic and MJ genetically spliced. But talent ain't wisdom. In a recent interview, you said that your goal in sports was to become "the richest man on earth." You also told ESPN, "I'm trying to be a global icon ... on the level of Muhammad Ali."

The Democrats think they can smell victory in 2008. A failed war, a polarized economy, and a bumbling, unelected White House autocrat -- what could bode better for a change of power?

In the world of religion, I hope it's not too late
To see more separation between church & hate.
