Democracy can die a slow death from a thousand cuts, inflicted by a few small men, wielding deadly little knives, drawing blood one drop at a time, on a slumbering people, who take their freedom for granted, and let it slip slowly away.

Martin Luther King Jr. often referred to 11 am on Sunday as "the most segregated hour in America" - his way of highlighting hypocrisy and racial exclusion in Christian churches.

Public's Right To Know - Declassification and Release of Documents


There are probably twenty to twenty-five thousand armed mercenaries in Iraq now, a bigger force than any except the U.S. force, by the way. And there are no laws governing them, and nobody’s been arrested for anything. Either you have twenty to twenty-five thousand hired men with guns who are angels, or there’s a huge miscarriage of justice going on. -- Robert Greenwald, director, "Iraq for Sale"

Steven Jonas: So Whassup on Iraq, Jim?

Steven Jonas, MD, MPH

The Georgite Iraq policy is in a spin and the Georgites are spinning it as fast as their spinning wheels can carry them. Why on George Stephanopoulos' show on Oct. 22, 2006, the other George actually said, in response to a question "I never said 'stay the course.'" (I will leave the discussion to my psychiatric colleagues as to whether the guy is consciously lying or just doesn't remember that he did say that a few days, months, and years previously, a problem that end stage alcoholics do have.) We already know that Sen. Warner, a variety of other Republican Senators, none other than the Bush-tool Scott McClellan, and a variety of American active-duty, not retired, Generals are indicating that indeed there is a timetable to American withdrawal or redeployment or something somewhere and that it will begin or perhaps has already begun. The New York Times of Oct. 23 reported that the American command in Baghdad now regards the battle there as the defining one. Since battles can be lost, even by our armed forces, offering such an analysis would indicate that those Generals are preparing some alternate strategy, indeed, to "staying the course," however one might define that intentionally vague "goal" that the Georgites have been foisting on us for the last two years.

Jack Abramoff now has a desk at the FBI.

I'll repeat that. Jack Abramoff has a desk at the FBI.

It's not because the convicted Washington lobbyist/crook/swindler/nogoodnik has had a road to Damascus moment and decided to join the ranks of the junior G-men, fighting crime and evildoers.
