I just heard Tucker Carlson call the man, who refuted the WTC collapse by fire, a "Quack" and say that anyone who believes that the Bush Admin. did these things should leave the United States. He had several callers on claiming to be fireman and say that they know for a fact that there were no explosions that day. It made me so angry. They posted a number to call and say what you think.

Fish numbers plummet in warming Pacific
Disappearance of plankton causes unprecedented collapse in sea and bird life off western US coast
By Geoffrey Lean

A catastrophic collapse in sea and bird life numbers along America's Northwest Pacific seaboard is raising fears that global warming is beginning to irreparably damage the health of the oceans.

Scientists say a dramatic rise in the ocean temperature led to unprecedented deaths of birds and fish this summer all along the coast from central California to British Columbia in Canada.

'Miraculous 911 Evidence' Found!

Independent Medical Investigation Not Allowed As Pentagon Controls Flight 77 Autopsy Results -
But Lists Three People Not Even On The Flight!
By Greg Szymanski - 11-15-5

Flight 77 passenger, Suzanne Calley's, wedding ring and driver's license turns up in perfect condition from Pentagon wreckage. ATM card of Flight 11 passenger, Waleed Iskandar, also turns up unscathed, but he wasn't even listed as a passenger on the AA official flight list.

Capt. Jim Ingledue of the Virginia Beach Fire Department and 9/11 first responder recently reported he found the completely unblemished California ID card of a Flight 77 passenger amidst the devastation and rubble at the Pentagon.

Critics were quick to jump on what they called "another miraculous find," claiming it was just another indication of bogus evidence planted by FBI, including the unscathed passport found outside the WTC of one of the hijackers, Satum AL Suqami, the luggage of Muhammad Atta with blatant incriminating evidence and the perfectly intact Wells Fargo ATM card of Walled Iskandar, one of the Flight 11 passengers.

In the case of Iskandar, whose ATM card discovery was first made public by the Arctic Beacon, it has also been learned he never even was listed as a passenger on Flight 11 in the first place, either on the original flight manifest or on the verified passenger list made public by American Airlines and subsequently released by CNN.

Iskandar's parents, Joseph and Samia, were unavailable for comment, failing to return numerous messages left on the answering machine at their home in Northridge, California.

Besides the strange Iskandar situation, the Arctic Beacon has now learned there may be even more bogus and planted FBI evidence, as the husband of Suzanne Calley, 42, whose ID was found at the Pentagon, also said the recovery team returned the couple's wedding ring and her perfectly intact California driver's license, as well as the ID card.

Frank Calley of San Martin, California, this week told another family member who lost a loved one on 9/11 that all three items were returned in perfectly good condition, a recovery even Capt. Ingledue said was "strange and unbelievable" considering the meltdown at the Pentagon.

Calley, however, didn't question the authenticity or believability of the items found, but added when questioned whether his wife's body was positively identified in the rubble:

"They told me they found her remains, but I decided not to look. The Pentagon officials also said the remains of at least 19 others on board the plane were also identified by a military medical group.

"Immediately after the crash, I was assigned a personal liaison who handled my case. He was cooperative and helpful and I decided I didn't want to see Suzanne's remains."

What's strange about the autopsy investigation is that none of the family members, including Calley, have demanded an independent investigation, relying solely on government medical reporting as advised by the Pentagon liaisons, a personal military attaché conveniently provided for each individual family.

The question has to be asked why would the military go to such extremes as to provide personal attachés unless they wanted to hide manipulate and control what should have been an independent crime scene investigation.

And, even stranger, questions like this should have been asked and independent investigations demanded by family members, all collectively as a group remaining strangely silent when it is the natural reaction of someone who loses a loved one, to travel to the ends of the earth to get at the truth.

Although the government medical team played up the fact it undertook the most comprehensive autopsy in medical history, utilizing DNA and dental records, none of the family members of those who allegedly died on 9/11, like Calley, can now ever be 100 percent sure of the results since the government controlled the autopsy, an independent investigation never being allowed and in the case of Calley, the remains of his wife's body has subsequently been cremated..

"Even though it's four years after 9/11, I still understand that family members can still be grieving. But wouldn't they want positive independent DNA testing done to prove their loved ones actually died in the crash," said on family member who lost a loved one 9/11 but wanted to remain anonymous.

"I never received any remains or evidence of the person I lost on 9/11, but if there were any remains, I surely would have had them independently tested instead of relying on the word of the government.

And that's exactly what transpired in the strange and unexplainable autopsy investigation of the Flight 77 passengers, conducted essentially in the cover of darkness by the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology (AFIP).

And after reading the report, it is filled with so many inconsistencies and generalities that it makes one wonder why Calley and the other family members - not a single one of them - ever insisted on independent DNA proof, matching the remains held by the government with that of their loved ones.

In fact, the AFIP in its report dated November 16, 2001, incredibly said it positively identified nearly all the bodies, including the Flight 77 passengers, a medical feat which several medical experts considered miraculous if not, impossible, considering the short amount of time and the amount of devastation at the crime scene.

Remember that Calley was told by his private Pentagon attaché that 19 passengers were positively identified from Flight 77, but the AFIP reports that184 of the 189 who died at the scene, including all but one of the airplane passengers, were positively identified within about two months.

But, to make matters worse, even these numbers have been seriously questioned by an independent medical investigator named Thomas R. Olmsted, M.D., who made a recent Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request in order to get to the bottom of what he calls a staged and phony government autopsy report in order to cover up for "monsters who planned this crime."

Dr. Olmsted said about the AFIP autopsy:

"A list of names on a piece of paper is not evidence, but an autopsy by a pathologist, is. I undertook by FOIA request to get the autopsy list. Guess what? Still no Arabs on the list. It is my opinion that the monsters who planned this crime made a mistake by not including Arabic names on the original list to make the ruse seem more believable.

"When airline disasters occur, airlines will routinely provide a manifest list for anxious families. You may have noticed that even before Sep 11th, that airlines are pretty meticulous about getting an accurate headcount before takeoff. It seems very unlikely to me, that five Arabs sneaked onto a flight with weapons."

Dr. Olmsted then calls attention to the blatant discrepancy of the names on the airline passenger manifest and the names provided by the official Pentagon autopsy report, showing also that three names were on the autopsy that never even were listed as passengers on the airplane, an obvious indication of foul play never explained by the Pentagon.

Further Dr.Olmsted found through his FOIA request that although the medical examiners positively all of the passengers, they did not identify any of the Arab hijackers onboard, who were also not listed on the original flight manifest.

"The AFIP suggest these numbers; 189 killed, 125 worked at the Pentagon and 64 were passengers on the plane. The AA list only had 56 and the list just obtained has 58. They did not explain how they were able to tell "victims" bodies from "hijacker" bodies," said Dr. Olmsted. "In fact, from the beginning no explanation has been given for the extra five suggested in news reports except that the FBI showed us the pictures to make up the difference, and that makes it so.

"No Arabs wound up on the morgue slab; however, three additional people not listed by American Airline sneaked in. I have seen no explanation for these extras (on the autopsy list but not listed as passengers.) I did give American the opportunity to "revise" their original list, but they have not responded. The new names are: Robert Ploger, Zandra Ploger, and Sandra Teague.

"The AFIP claims that the only "passenger" body that they were not able to identify is the toddler, Dana Falkenberg, whose parents and young sister are on the list of those identified. The satanic masterminds behind this caper may be feeling pretty smug about the perfect crime, but they have left a raft of clues tying these unfortunates together."

Decoding Mr. Bush's Denials
Editorial - November 15, 2005
http://www.nytimes.com/2005/11/15/opinion/15tue1.html?hp

To avoid having to account for his administration's misleading statements before the war with Iraq, President Bush has tried denial, saying he did not skew the intelligence. He's tried to share the blame, claiming that Congress had the same intelligence he had, as well as President Bill Clinton. He's tried to pass the buck and blame the C.I.A. Lately, he's gone on the attack, accusing Democrats in Congress of aiding the terrorists.

Yesterday in Alaska, Mr. Bush trotted out the same tedious deflection on Iraq that he usually attempts when his back is against the wall: he claims that questioning his actions three years ago is a betrayal of the troops in battle today.

It all amounts to one energetic effort at avoidance. But like the W.M.D. reports that started the whole thing, the only problem is that none of it has been true.

Mr. Bush says everyone had the same intelligence he had - Mr. Clinton and his advisers, foreign governments, and members of Congress - and that all of them reached the same conclusions. The only part that is true is that Mr. Bush was working off the same intelligence Mr. Clinton had. But that is scary, not reassuring. The reports about Saddam Hussein's weapons were old, some more than 10 years old. Nothing was fresher than about five years, except reports that later proved to be fanciful.

Foreign intelligence services did not have full access to American intelligence. But some had dissenting opinions that were ignored or not shown to top American officials. Congress had nothing close to the president's access to intelligence. The National Intelligence Estimate presented to Congress a few days before the vote on war was sanitized to remove dissent and make conjecture seem like fact.

It's hard to imagine what Mr. Bush means when he says everyone reached the same conclusion. There was indeed a widespread belief that Iraq had chemical and biological weapons. But Mr. Clinton looked at the data and concluded that inspections and pressure were working - a view we now know was accurate. France, Russia and Germany said war was not justified. Even Britain admitted later that there had been no new evidence about Iraq, just new politics.

The administration had little company in saying that Iraq was actively trying to build a nuclear weapon. The evidence for this claim was a dubious report about an attempt in 1999 to buy uranium from Niger, later shown to be false, and the infamous aluminum tubes story. That was dismissed at the time by analysts with real expertise.

The Bush administration was also alone in making the absurd claim that Iraq was in league with Al Qaeda and somehow connected to the 9/11 terrorist attacks. That was based on two false tales. One was the supposed trip to Prague by Mohamed Atta, a report that was disputed before the war and came from an unreliable drunk. The other was that Iraq trained Qaeda members in the use of chemical and biological weapons. Before the war, the Defense Intelligence Agency concluded that this was a deliberate fabrication by an informer.

Mr. Bush has said in recent days that the first phase of the Senate Intelligence Committee's investigation on Iraq found no evidence of political pressure to change the intelligence. That is true only in the very narrow way the Republicans on the committee insisted on defining pressure: as direct pressure from senior officials to change intelligence. Instead, the Bush administration made what it wanted to hear crystal clear and kept sending reports back to be redone until it got those answers.

Richard Kerr, a former deputy director of central intelligence, said in 2003 that there was "significant pressure on the intelligence community to find evidence that supported a connection" between Iraq and Al Qaeda. The C.I.A. ombudsman told the Senate Intelligence Committee that the administration's "hammering" on Iraq intelligence was harder than he had seen in his 32 years at the agency.

Mr. Bush and other administration officials say they faithfully reported what they had read. But Vice President Dick Cheney presented the Prague meeting as a fact when even the most supportive analysts considered it highly dubious. The administration has still not acknowledged that tales of Iraq coaching Al Qaeda on chemical warfare were considered false, even at the time they were circulated.

Mr. Cheney was not alone. Remember Condoleezza Rice's infamous "mushroom cloud" comment? And Secretary of State Colin Powell in January 2003, when the rich and powerful met in Davos, Switzerland, and he said, "Why is Iraq still trying to procure uranium and the special equipment needed to transform it into material for nuclear weapons?" Mr. Powell ought to have known the report on "special equipment"' - the aluminum tubes - was false. And the uranium story was four years old.

The president and his top advisers may very well have sincerely believed that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. But they did not allow the American people, or even Congress, to have the information necessary to make reasoned judgments of their own. It's obvious that the Bush administration misled Americans about Mr. Hussein's weapons and his terrorist connections. We need to know how that happened and why.

Mr. Bush said last Friday that he welcomed debate, even in a time of war, but that "it is deeply irresponsible to rewrite the history of how that war began." We agree, but it is Mr. Bush and his team who are rewriting history.

Some Democrats and anti-war critics are now claiming we manipulated the intelligence and misled the American people about why we went to war." George W. Bush

Bush adviser, Stephen Hadley says Intelligence accusations 'flat wrong'
PROOF: BULLSH*T WALKS & TALKS

On "Meet the Press" Sunday, November 13, 2005, Tim Russert was discussing Bush's declining poll numbers with RNC talking head Ken Mehlman, Chairman of the Republican National Committee.

Mehlman, without realizing it, displayed exactly how Republicans deal with honest information and showed how intelligence "Cherry Picking" was used to start the illegal war in Iraq.

After hearing the poor poll numbers, Mehlman said, "IF I GOT THOSE POLL RESULTS, I'D FIRE THE POLLSTER."

So...according to the Republican National Committee, if you don't like 'the intelligence', create your own, else, FIRE those who do not produce false information, and this my friends is one of the best displays of Bullshit I have ever seen.

W, during his speech, went on to say, "In the four years since September the 11th, the evil that reached our shores has reappeared on other days, in other places -- in Mombasa [1] and Casablanca and Riyadh and Jakarta and Istanbul and Madrid and Beslan and Taba and Netanya and Baghdad, and elsewhere. In the past few months, we have seen a new terror offensive with attacks on London and Sharm el-Sheikh, another deadly strike in Bali, and this week, a series of bombings in Amman, Jordan, that killed dozens of innocent Jordanians and their guests."

"All these separate images of destruction and suffering that we see on the news can seem like random, isolated acts of madness -- innocent men and women and children who have died simply because they boarded the wrong train, or worked in the wrong building, or checked into the wrong hotel. Yet, while the killers choose their victims indiscriminately, their attacks serve a clear and focused ideology -- a set of beliefs and goals that are evil, but not insane."

Ummm... then explain why Republicans spent fifty-five million ($55,000,000) tax dollars to discover if Monica swallowed and only three million, five hundred thousand ($3,500,000) tax dollars on the 9/11 cOmmission and the INSIDE JOB known as 9/11?

The above behavior would appear both "insane" & "evil" and relates to Ministers of Satan who would care more about sex than the murder of tens of thousands of innocent civilians and military service people.

http://edition.cnn.com/2002/US/11/30/kenya.us.intelligence/index.html

The original intent of this article was to point out what was going on leading up to each attack, but I lost my passion after discovering Bush was warned before the attack on Mombasa, which was reminiscent of Liar Rice's August 6, 2001 PDB titled, "Bin Laden Determined to Attack Inside the United States.". It also raised questions about Bush reading children's stories during the 9/11 attack and playing guitar in San Diego while tens of thousands of poor people were being thrashed around by nature's terrorist, Hurricane Katrina (So much for believing Homeland Security was a good idea; except for collecting information of citizens opposed to Bush's renegade regime cabal.)

If one ever gets a chance to listen to this speech, notice the 'flow' of words when Bush mentions, 'the terrorist attacks after 9/11'. It would almost seem those places were a greater part of the 'alleged PLAN' and "Axis of Evil" speech that took us into a false war.

Bullyism
by Balz
November 11, 2005

The Governor of the United States is "on the hunt" and started a new round of finger pointing during a series of Veteran's events today.

Too bad Cheer Leader George and Six Deferment Dick didn't have intestinal fortitude to serve like real Veterans.

A MAJOR portion of his speech focused on fear and a future of world terror; something most people now believe he created. The other portion was finger pointing reminiscent of a caught or cornered bully.

He raved how Senate and Congress voted for him to go to war; yet Nobody mentions how these elected officials fell for an old modified Joe McCarthy line, "You Are Either With Us Or With the Terrorists" and were afraid, to challenge the Neocon - Cabal supporting him.

What does this teach us about our politicians? I believe it is a lesson about Truth and "What Makes 100%"

What Makes 100%? What does it mean to give MORE than 100%? Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%? We have all been to those meetings where someone wants you to give over 100%. How about achieving 103%? What makes up 100% in life?

Here's a little mathematical formula that might help you answer these questions:

If:

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

is represented as:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.

Then:

H-A-R-D-W-O-R-K = 8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%

and

K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E = 11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%

But

A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E - 1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%

And

B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T = 2+21+12+12+19+8+9+20 = 103%

AND, look how far ass kissing will take you.

A-S-S-K-I-S-S-I-N-G = 1+19+19+11+9+19+19+9+14+7 = 118%

So, one can conclude with mathematical certainty that While Hard work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will get you there, it's the Bullshit and Ass kissing that will put you over the top.

Your enemy is not surrounding your country --
your enemy is ruling your country

by Balz

Year after year, George W. Bush has gone to elaborate lengths, spent enormous sums of money, taken great risks to build and keep weapons of mass destruction. But why? The only possible explanation, the only possible use he could have for those weapons, is to dominate, intimidate, or attack.

With nuclear arms or a full arsenal of chemical and biological weapons, George W. Bush could resume his ambitions of conquest in the Middle East and create deadly havoc in that region. And this Congress and the America people must recognize another threat. Evidence from intelligence sources, secret communications, and statements by Scooter Libby and others facing indictment reveal that George W. Bush aids and protects terrorists, including Neocons Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, Scott McClellan, et. al. Secretly, and without fingerprints, he could create another 9/11, provide one of his hidden weapons to terrorists, or help them develop their own.

Before September the 11th, many in the world believed that George W. Bush could be contained. But chemical agents, lethal viruses and shadowy terrorist networks are not easily contained. Imagine those Neocon hijackers with other weapons and other plans -- this time armed by George W. Bush. It would take one vial, one canister, one crate slipped into this country to bring a day of horror like none we have ever known. We will do everything in our power to make sure that that day never comes. (Applause.)

Colin Powell holding something that looks like a small bottle of cocaine (W's ?) photo
SAVE U.S. AND YOUR REPUTATION COLIN, TELL the TRUTH!

Some have said we must not act until the threat is imminent. Since when have terrorists and tyrants announced their intentions, politely putting us on notice before they strike? If this threat is permitted to fully and suddenly emerge, all actions, all words, and all recriminations would come too late. Trusting in the sanity and restraint of George W. Bush is not a strategy, and it is not an option. (Applause.)

The dictator who is assembling the world's most dangerous weapons has already used them on whole villages (Shock, Awe, and MK77) -- leaving thousands of Iraqi citizens dead, blind, or disfigured. Iraqi refugees tell us how forced confessions are obtained -- by torturing children while their parents are made to watch. International human rights groups have catalogued other methods used in the torture chambers of Iraq: electric shock, burning with hot irons, dripping acid on the skin, mutilation with electric drills, cutting out tongues, and rape. If this is not evil, then evil has no meaning. (Applause.)

And tonight I have a message for the brave and oppressed people of the United States: Your enemy is not surrounding your country -- your enemy is ruling your country. (Applause.) And the day he and his regime are removed from power will be the day of your liberation. (Applause.)

If this is not evil, then evil has no meaning.

White House keeps dossiers on more than 10,000 'political enemies'
By DOUG THOMPSON

Spurred by paranoia and aided by the USA Patriot Act, the Bush Administration has compiled dossiers on more than 10,000 Americans it considers political enemies and uses those files to wage war on those who disagree with its policies.

The "enemies list" dates back to Bush's days as governor of Texas and can be accessed by senior administration officials in an instant for use in campaigns to discredit those who speak out against administration policies or acts of the President.

The computerized files include intimate personal details on members of Congress; high-ranking local, state and federal officials; prominent media figures and ordinary citizens who may, at one time or another, have spoken out against the President or Administration.

Capitol Hill Blue has spoken with a number of current and former administration officials who acknowledge existence of the enemies list only under a guarantee of confidentiality. Those who have seen the list say it is far more extensive than Richard Nixon's famous "enemies list" of Watergate fame or Bill Clinton's dossiers on political enemies.

"How is that you think Karl (Rove) and Scooter (Libby) were able to disseminate so much information on Joe Wilson and his wife," says one White House aide. "They didn't have that information by accident. They had it because they have files on those who might hurt them."

White House insiders tell disturbing tales of invasion of privacy, abuse of government power and use of expanded authority under the USA Patriot Act to dig into the personal lives of anyone the administration deems an enemy of the state.

Those on the list include former Ambassador Joseph Wilson and his wife, former covert CIA operative Valarie Plame, along with filmmaker and administration critic Michael Moore, Senators like California's Barbara Boxer, media figures like liberal writer Joe Conason and left-wing bloggers like Markos Moulitsas Z´┐Żniga (the Daily Kos) and Ana Marie Cox (Wonkette).

"If you want to know who's sleeping with whom, who drinks too much or has a fondness for nose candy, this is the place to find it," says another White House aide. "Karl (Rove) operates under the rule that if you fuck with us, we'll fuck you over."

Rove started the list while Bush served as governor of Texas, compiling information on various political enemies in the state and leaking damaging information on opponents to friends in the press. The list grew during Bush's first run for President in 2000 but the names multiplied rapidly after the terrorist attacks of 2001 and passage of the USA Patriot Act. Using the powers under the act, Rove expanded the list to more than 10,000 names, utilizing the FBI's "national security letters" to gather private and intimate details on American citizens.

National security letters, which can be issued by an FBI supervisor without a judge's review or approval, allows the bureau to examine the telephone calls, correspondence and financial lives of any Americans.

The FBI issues some 30,000 national security letters a year to employers, credit bureaus, banks, travel agencies and other sources of information on American citizens. The Patriot Act also forbids anyone receiving such a letter to reveal they have passed on information to the federal government.

"Those letters helped us build files quickly on those we needed to know more about," says a former White House aide.

The database of political enemies of the Bush administration is not maintained on White House computers and is located on a privately-owned computer offsite, but can be accessed remotely by a select list of senior aides, including Rove. The offsite location allowed the database to escape detection by special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald during his investigation of the Valerie Plame leak. The database is funded by private donations from Bush political backers and does not appear on the White House budget or Federal Election Commission campaign reports.

Bush is not the first President to use the FBI to keep track of his enemies. Richard M. Nixon used FBI files to try and discredit his opponents, including Daniel Ellsberg, the Department of Defense employee who leaked the Pentagon Papers to The New York Times. Bill Clinton used the FBI to compile dossiers on critics like Conservative Congressman Bob Barr and legal gadfly Larry Klayman of Judicial Watch.

But worried White House insiders say the intelligence gathered by the Bush administration is far larger, more extensive and potentially more damaging than the excesses of previous occupants of the White House. Even worse, it dovetails into a pattern of spying on Americans that has become commonplace since Bush took office.

"We're talking about Big Brother at its most extreme," says one White House staffer. "We know things about people that their spouses don't know and, if it becomes politically expedient, we will make sure the rest of the world knows."

The White House press office did not respond to a request for an interview on this story and did not return phone calls seeking comment. - © Copyright 2005 Capitol Hill Blue

OUR GOVERNMENT has become secretative and dishonest, leading one to wonder WHY nothing is being done about it.

Michael Parenti quote from 1986 book, Inventing Reality

Michael Parenti, in his 1986 publication "Inventing Reality", was correct and if one pays attention to Corporate Media, the act of, "a press that (a) dutifully reports the suppressive measures he taking to save the the nation from internal chaos [cough - hurricanes / cough - bird flu] and foreign threat [cough - War on Terror]; and (b) gingerly questions whether he will be able to succeed." happens on a daily basis. These notes, whch have been linked many times here, are not fake - http://www.flyingsnail.com/Dahbud/newsccontrol.html

By now, everybody should know there was a problem with both the 2000 election and the 2004 election. In both cases the election was stolen.

Part of the problem is, Nobody - http://www.nobodyforpresident.org - cares about basics.

There is no proof that George W. Bush was ever successfull at anything and here are the people 'running the show' [Please note who signed this document, where they are now, and what their agenda was - http://www.flyingsnail.com/Dahbud/pnac26jan1998letter.html

Everybody got concerned about George W. Bush being AWOL, but few focused on his security clearence application that appears to omit some important information. Anybody remember Skull and Bones?

Security application showing the "only" membership in a fraternity...and no Skull and Bones

Despite these references there is something really troublesum based on, 'a person is innocent of a crime until proven guilty'. Proof that Osama bin Laden DID 9/11 was based on a video tape that was forged - http://www.flyingsnail.com/Dahbud/DahArc/daharc20.html

Here is an article by Fly that was written about a year ago and worth considering:

INYFYAS

George W. Bush, Bush Family Members, and Their Associates Invaded Iraq because they (Dubya & Friends) did not want to offend the bin Laden family (friends of oil and feather create havoc together) and Nobody in their right mind has Never presented proof Osama was responsible for 9/11.

Everybody has heard the story, 'the world was behind US, when we went to Afghanistan to "Get Osama bin Laden", and in case you have forgotten, click here to see a nice musical Flash of "Ou Est Osama", words by George Bush Jr., and then click here, to understand where this is headed.

Everybody must also know that six and a half foot tall Osama needs, at the minimum, a portable dialysis machine; not to mention, traveling on a donkey, through narrow mountainous paths, to hide in caves, constantly, as we are told; despite the rumor he is being kept in a custom built luxury apartment in the basement of the Vice Presidential Mansion.

In order for you to understand what is involved with transporting a dialysis machine, the following discourse will help, Traveling With A Portable Dialysis Machine and know, in the best of conditions, even in the United States, it is to say the least, problematic. Click here and here to see pictures of the equipment Osama would need to carry with him.

Psychologists point out President Bush is in competition with his father who he obviously despises (Watch them together, there is never a 'real' acknowledgement that represents 'father & son'.) due to a domineering mother, and suggest the President's past alcoholism and drug abuse is a result. If that is not enough proof, his Father never attended his Skull & Bones initiation, and click here to read 158,000 +/- articles on similar behavior by his daughters (These folks need help!).

We are told the people have spoken with their vote, but with all the lies; especially those of Kerry and Edward's regarding every vote being counted and, yes, the missing WMD (Am I the only one who got the impression from George Bush Jr. and his administration that we were on the verge of nuclear Holocaust? I still have visions of Dr. Rice telling me of the "mushroom shaped cloud".), we can't be sure what really is the truth (American Apology To The World).

Dahbud once told a story of a kid (not a goat) in Prep. School who spent the Major part of his time reading comic books. Dahbud approached him one day and discovered he was only looking at the pictures in the comic books, because he could not read. When Dahbud asked why he could not read, the kid said "I'm so wealthy I don't have too." He graduated due to a donation of a library or building (I can't remember.) and somebody took his 'college boards' in order for him to get into university.

It's not your fault you are stupid..
television has done that to you !

There was ONLY ONE courageous politician against Bush and her name is Barbara Lee.

Barbara Lee as Hogan, Cheney as Klink and Fleischer as Sarg. Shultz
