India may be the first country to explain to the world about extra-terrestrial and UFO contacts %u2013 the secret debate is on
Topic: Current Events 7:25 pm EST, Jan 10, 2005

] New Delhi is in the middle of a big secret internal
] debate. On one side the largest democracy of the world is
] eager to explain to its citizens and to the world about
] the ongoing contacts with the UFOs and
] extra-terrestrials. On the other hand there are invisible
] untold international protocols that prohibit doing
] anything that may cause worldwide fear and panic.

That's right... everyone please start wearing your tinfoil hat right now.

Okay so the basis for this "news" story is that .in is being recognized as the world power it is. As the 2nd most populous country in the world, india has earned the right to become a member of the UN security council (well that and the fact that they have nukes). Indian scientists (whose duties are split between making nuclear bombs and figuring out ways of delivering them) should be encouraged to explore space, because the more we know the more we know. I think more politicians and goverments are recognizing that india is a global player and not that there are aliens going beep-beep up in the hills.

Of course if I'm wrong and there is an alien invasion with india squarely on the side of the alien invaders I'm gonna go ahead and switch sides. What with their superior technology and predilection for performing anal probes it pretty clear who's got the upper hand.

Tsunami Relief

If you do not recommend this link, you are a jerk!

How could you fail to promote such a worthy cause when it only takes two clicks of your mouse? Don't be a jerk.

Once you have recommended this link, if you do not actually donate some money, you are a jerk.

How could you advocate that other people donate money when you haven't the spine for it yourself?

Don't be a jerk!

Lets put it this way... Did you donate money or time or blood after 9-11? This tragedy impacted far, far more people. Furthermore, this is South East Asia, not NYC. These people don't have effective relief infrastructure, and they don't have big life insurance plans... If the victims of 9-11 deserve your compassion, and they do, then the victims of this Tsunami do as well, and in fact they are even more in need of your help.

Don't be a jerk. Click Recommend.

NEWS ANALYSIS / Flip-flopping charge unsupported by facts / Kerry always pushed global cooperation, war as last resort
Topic: Current Events 6:28 pm EDT, Sep 24, 2004

No argument is more central to the Republican attack on Sen. John Kerry than the assertion that the Democrat has flip-flopped on Iraq.

Yet an examination of Kerry's words in more than 200 speeches and statements, comments during candidate forums and answers to reporters' questions does not support the accusation.

The crux of the flip-flopping charge is based on pitting Kerry's pointed criticism of the war against his October 2002 vote to authorize the use of force, a vote the Democratic senator defends to this day.

Kerry, who was one of 29 Democratic senators to support the resolution, said the vote was appropriate to strengthen the president's hand in negotiations, and he draws a distinction between his vote and an endorsement of the March 2003 attack.

"Congressional action on this resolution is not the end of our national debate on how best to disarm Iraq,'' Kerry said on the eve of the vote. "Nor does it mean we have exhausted all of our peaceful options to achieve this goal."

Republicans ridicule such distinctions and use Kerry's vote as the basis for their assertion that Kerry once favored the war.

Yet in the fall of 2002, several months before the air strikes on Baghdad began, Bush himself insisted the vote was not the same as a declaration of war but instead gave him the hand he needed to negotiate the peace.

"If you want to keep the peace, you've got to have the authorization to use force,'' Bush said in September 2002. "It's a chance for Congress to say, 'we support the administration's ability to keep the peace.' That's what this is all about."

Republicans Admit Mailing Campaign Literature Saying Liberals Will Ban the Bible
Topic: Current Events 6:27 pm EDT, Sep 24, 2004

] The Republican Party acknowledged yesterday sending mass
] mailings to residents of two states warning that
] "liberals" seek to ban the Bible. It said the mailings
] were part of its effort to mobilize religious voters for
] President Bush.
] The mailings include images of the Bible labeled "banned"
] and of a gay marriage proposal labeled "allowed." A
] mailing to Arkansas residents warns: "This will be
] Arkansas if you don't vote." A similar mailing was sent
] to West Virginians.
] In an e-mail message, Christine Iverson, a spokeswoman
] for the Republican National Committee, confirmed that the
] party had sent the mailings.

That's the national party that sent these out. Not some crazy locals. Not a 527 group.

I thought it was an interesting coincidence that a state with questionable presidential election results would be pummeled by hurricanes just before the next election. Then I thought it was an interesting coincidence that the storms spared Miami, who voted for Gore in 2000. Just out of curiosity, I overlaid two map: one of the tracks of the hurricanes of 2004, and one of the election results of 2000.

This is no longer an interesting coincidence. It is an unmistakable message from God. I hope everyone is listening.

t r u t h o u t - Military Leaders: 'Bush's War is Already Lost'
Topic: Current Events 3:01 pm EDT, Sep 16, 2004

] Most senior US military officers now believe the war
] on Iraq has turned into a disaster on an unprecedented
] scale.
] 'Bring them on!" President Bush challenged the early
] Iraqi insurgency in July of last year. Since then, 812
] American soldiers have been killed and 6,290 wounded,
] according to the Pentagon. Almost every day, in campaign
] speeches, Bush speaks with bravado about how he is
] "winning" in Iraq. "Our strategy is succeeding," he
] boasted to the National Guard convention on Tuesday.
] But, according to the US military's leading strategists
] and prominent retired generals, Bush's war is already
] lost. Retired general William Odom, former head of the
] National Security Agency, told me: "Bush hasn't found the
] WMD. Al-Qaida, it's worse, he's lost on that front. That
] he's going to achieve a democracy there? That goal is
] lost, too. It's lost." He adds: "Right now, the course
] we're on, we're achieving Bin Laden's ends."

Great... Now I'm scared. I'm the last person to get scared. Thanks Prez. Please leave office now. You're making US less safe.

] LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- If Doreen Seelig pocketed
] all the money she has spent on classroom supplies over 35
] years as a teacher -- the printer cartridges, the paper,
] the pencils and the paperback books lent to her Venice
] High School students -- she figures she would have a new
] car by now.
] Now, as the new school year gets under way, the burden on
] Seelig and other teachers around the country is even
] heavier.
] Because of a budget crunch, California has suspended a
] tax credit that reimbursed teachers up to $1,500 for
] classroom supplies. Meanwhile, a $250 federal tax
] deduction
for teachers that helped defray out-of-pocket
] spending expired this year.

I. Hate. [expletive]. [expletive]. [expletive]. President Bush.
