Sometimes there’s just too much news…
The California Legislature Passes Equal Marriage Laws for ALL its Citizens
It’s not just the courts now. Elected representatives are recognizing that Americans do deserve equal protection under the law, as our Constitution provides. There is still a place for religious bigots though: it’s called Iran. Don’t you dare veto this one, Schwarzenneggar….
Chief Justice Roberts?
Let’s let the vacancy last a little longer. John Paul Stevens, appointed by Gerald Ford (who would be considered a raving liberal by the Fox Propaganda Channel today) is the Acting Chief Justice. I can live with that for a little while.
The 4th Anniversary of 9/11 Pales in Comparison to the Greater Death and Destruction Caused by Past and Continuing Government Failures to Aid Hurricane Katrina Victims
Four years ago today, the mass murder of 3000 Americans on September 11, 2001 gave the President the excuse he needed to take us to an endless war and occupation that has thus far cost another almost 2000 American lives, 10,000+ wounded, and 30,000+ Iraqi dead. It also gave the President the excuse he needed to dismantle FEMA, one of the best government organizations under Clinton, so that it could no longer help the victims of the New Orleans flood.
The Bush Administration, in its misuse of 9/11, has done more damage to America and Americans that Osama Bin Laden did four years ago today….
Meanwhile, Back in Iraq…
We’ve shown as little capability to fix that country’s infrastructure as we have to shore up our own. Only we have an extra problem there. Folks are shooting at us. Even the radical Bushies don’t seem to believe their own rhetoric anymore about how “the people will welcome us as liberators” and “we will forcibly create a new Democratic, peaceful Middle East with abundant American oil whether the Iraqi People like it or not!” Ahem…what are we fighting for again? Who do you think will be the last person to die for a mistake?
The Utter Depravity that is George Bush
In Bush’s America, thousands must die if it will help the President one iota politically. If at any point you ever lack complete disgust for our President, just click this link, but bring a wastebasket nearby to catch your vomit.
And Finally, the Definition of “Compassionate Conservatism”
“And so many of the people in the arenas here, you know, were underprivileged anyway. This is working very well for them…. What I’m hearing, which is sort of scary, is they all want to stay in Texas”
— Barbara Bush, on the evacuees from the New Orleans Superdome to the Houston Astrodome
