Best Presidental Quote EVER

Better than Nixon saying (as Vice President) "you won't have Dick Nixon around anymore" Of course he lied. Later he said "I am not a crook!" Again, he perjured. 53251

Occupy Denver: not as badass as they pretend to be

DENVER, COLORADO- Occupy activists were making their usual cacophony on Friday night when Denver police cruisers began converging into a familiar disproportionate show of force. Experienced skirmishers though Occupiers are, we couldn't help whispering to each other as we watched more DPD officers accumulate on foot from vehicles yet unseen. The unintended effect of course was that our chanting diminished as the tension rose and Denver onlookers were treated to a literal illustration of the chilling effect of police intimidation. To make matters more embarassing, Occupy was shouting that we would not be silenced! By the time police were trooping upon us there was no sound but DPD boot steps and our "cameras on, everybody, cameras on." 39981

A brief pictorial of protest in Colorado Springs and with Music

Done by Ed and with music courtesy of Rage Against the Machine I still have to get the embed code right. But that's a youtube link. Anyhow, I've thought of that a lot, how is it that everything is "protest" against the actions of others? Granted that the others happen to be in the wrong virtually all of the time, but still, sometimes I think that their actions are the protest, a protest against everything considered civil and good and righteous. Sometimes some of the local rednecks will drive by and scream really stupid shit out of (usually the passenger side) windows of moving cars... like "get a job" at the recent Union support rally. Where, again, it wasn't protesting AGAINST the thieving lying son of a goat and a whore Scott Walker and his actions, but in support of the would be victims of his latest assault. 23222

Wall Street Journal in Anti-Mosque Rant.

Saying that moderate Islam doesn't exist, that al Qa'eda and Taliban operatives would kill anybody who expressed in the Arab Countries any non-extremist position. What a Fat Load Of Shit. Again painting Islam as a monolithic entity, no differences between nations or even PEOPLE. Let's put that in Christian Western Moderate terms yes? Since the Crusades pitted Christian against Christian more often that Christian against Muslim, and every war since then, German chaplains instructing their soldiers in Both World Wars to go into battle screaming "Gott Mit Uns" meaning, God is on OUR side, and the British Chaplains same way instructing their Cannon Fodder to scream "God and King!" as they marched in an orderly fashion through the portals of Hell... There must not be any such thing as a Moderate Christian because the Radicals, like for instance Michelle Malkin, and Sarah Palin, and Glenn Beck, would have us all killed if we expressed any form of moderation. Although that IS the ultimate logical end of their truly screwed up mindset. 19667

Pentagon and State Dept Call leaked information Crimes

Just, you know, not the CRIMES committed by their agents and soldiers, it's the revelation of those Crimes that's 'criminal'. No word yet on any prosecution against the Rove-Bush Kartel for making false statements that have directly led to the deaths of thousands of United States servicemen (each one a capital offense, according the the Bush Doctrine) and a literally uncounted number of Afghan and Iraqi civilians. Although the Wikileaks reports did add a substantial number to that count. No, the people who told massive lies to support starting and continuing the Mass Murder Campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan, they're not the subject of the Criminal Investigation, run in large part by Investigators who ARE Criminals. It's once again come down to prosecuting people for telling the Truth.

If War ended Fascism, as our Redneck Detractors say…

Then why does one of our major partners and Torture Contractors, Egypt, pull stunts like this? They're trying a blogger in a military tribunal, with a chance at one of those indefinite sentences like the Bush Administration first imposed in their War Of Terror, complete with Torture. Since the law they're using is a direct copy from the so-called "patriot" act. And that Egypt was our primary source of Torturers until the Bush Regime identified and hired enough Sick Bastard PedoNecroSadoPhiles to staff our own torture centers like Bagram AFB, Abu Ghraib, and of course Guantanamo. Actually the reason the War Proponents say that war ended Fascism, Communism, Slavery, etc etc.. Is because they're liars as well as cowards. It's kind of like when the British,French, Dutch, Russian and Belgian EMPIRES declared early in World War One that they were fighting to end Imperialism. 15121

CU lawyer thinks it was Ward Churchill who may have violated 1st Amendment

DENVER- CHURCHILL TRIAL, DAY TWO. University of Colorado defense attorney Patrick O'Rourke wanted the jury to understand that Freedom of Speech was a complicated matter. He asked Dean of CU's law school, David Getches, to confirm "Is First Amendment Law hard?" "Yes it is." "Are you an expert on First Amendment law?" "No, I am not." O'Rourke also got former Governor Bill Owens to admit the First Amendment concept was "tricky." But no one could have conveyed it better than O'Rourke himself. He described how CU scoured Professor Ward Churchill's work "to look for First Amendment violations." Pretending to detail the school's concern for protecting Churchill's academic freedom, O'Rourke explained that when it was concluded that Churchill's 9/11 Little Eichmann essay was protected speech, CU set about to find other instances where "what he said might violate the First Amendment."
