That creepy Pope’s new hire for PR

I don't know if it's just me or what, but I find that the Pope seems to be even creepier than ever now that he's fired his butler and tried to get him jailed to boot. The man is hideous! From Nazi to now lover of Fox News and Opus Dei... He's the pedophile church's perfect monster. I'm sure that Greg Burke will have his work cut out for him when he begins his new job as Vatican PR Man. YUCK!!!!!!!!

US military whore dances away in Cartagena

I kinda of find this picture to be rather scary... The Republicans have their Mother 'Ann' and the Democrats still have their Hillary. The US ruling class is just as creepy as the worst low life American Right Wingers are IMO.

Ted Haggard is less shifty than New Life Church

COLORADO SPRINGS- Ted Haggard's inconvenient sex life surfaces again! And this time the scandal is all New Life's. Ted Haggard's PR talk show onslaught to remake his image has prompted an altar boy to go public. But it seems this violates an agreement the young man made with New Life in the aftermath of the Haggard prostitute meth-habit scandal. 6217

Elliot Spitzer plays role model Democrat

Elliot Spitzer resigns having discredited the New York Governor's Office with unsavory impropriety. No sooner had phone taps revealed his financial exchanges with a prostitute, than Republicans were calling for Spitzer's resignation or he would face impeachment. Where do his political opponents get those kind of balls? 2827

Destroying the evidence of military crimes

Gang-raped then locked in van, Iraq worker says. That's what happened to Jamie Leigh Jones, a worker for Halliburton (KBR), the same firm that Dick Cheney headed up before taking over the Vice Presidency of the US. The same firm that killed off its workers with asbestos which subsequently Dick Cheney as CEO helped limit liability for the company for these crimes of killing off its own workforce. 2308

Post-dead canoeist found on Google Pics

How did they trip up the Hartlepool canoeist who paddled out to sea five years ago, leaving his widow with life insurance money, only to surface this week in a London police station claiming amnesia? A snapshot of John Darwin and his wife in their new Panamanian condo, confronted with which his wife confessed "well it explains a lot, doesn't it?"   How the photo came to light is an inspiration to all amateur internet sleuths. An ordinary UK housewife googled John and Anne in Panama. Google Images came p with the picture on the real estate website of their Panamanian broker. Try this at home!

Destroying the evidence of US government torture of POWs

Our despicable national government has just admitted that it destroyed the video taping of its use of torture on prisoners held at the Guantanamo concentration camp for US captured POWs. See article... CIA destroyed video of 'waterboarding' al-Qaida detainees 2229

George W. Bush, Holocaust denier?!?

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, according to much of the US press, supposedly has denied that there was a Jewish holocaust. In some countries of Europe, that can get you a jail sentence even. 2019

Taps for Larry Craig? Maybe not.

My 9-year-old twins learned about stereotypes in school last week. Ever eager to share social messages they receive while in the hands of the state, knowing that hours of rollicking fun will result, they vomited the latest rhetoric gleefully into my lap. 1821

Afghanistan, the word the ‘peace’ troops never seem to mention

In Afghanistan, the US is consistently bombing civilian areas with large loss of life, and yet the US Peace Movement hardly seems to take notice. There's next to no mention of the US Occupation of Afghanistan at all, with one notable exception being, a Libertarian run site. And the main antiwar coalitions call for peace in Iraq, but do not really mention Afghanistan on their web sites, their lit, or their banners. The reason is quite simple. 1559

Creepylocks and the three blondes

The spectacular triple-murder-rape invasion of the Petit family home in Cheshire Connecticut drew comparison to the brutality of the supersexed ruffians from A Clockwork Orange. Sam Peckinpaw's Straw Dogs was released the same year, banned in the UK until only recently, and depicted the similar rapist bogeyman but focused on cultured man's incapacity to safe-keep his house and blonde. 1517

I had to say something

James Harris has a great interview on Alternet with Mike Jones, friend and counselor of Ted Haggard. It is about his book, the one rejected by local lizard small shop keeper Poor Richard, and is titled, 'I had to say something'. Thank good he did say something, too. 1509

Dragging antiwar vets through the mud

Here below is the case of an antiwar vet being dragged through the mud. ......... Ron: What are the potential punishments if they bust you? 1386

The woman from Hell

Every so often a story in the news sort of grabs out at the reader. My first wife used to occasionally call me an 'aguafiestas', or a 'rainer on the party'. Hey, that's nothing compared to being an 'mordidafiestas', or 'party biter'. Beware the woman from Hell! 'Testicle attack 1370

Top Democrat admits that he lied to cover for Bush’s lies

Senator Richard Durbin, the #2 Democratic Party leader in the Senate, certainly takes the cake. He has confessed to deliberately passing Republican Administration lies to the American people, and actually has the nerve to state that he legally had to do such! He says that he was sworn to secrecy as a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee. 1255

Thank God our idiotic local selections are finally over

I have been purposely avoiding writing up to now about the embarrassing Colorado Springs elections where our corporate dictatorship offered up the worst of the worst for our supposed choosing. It was just too ugly for words. There was only one mayoral candidate that offered us much choice. For the city council I just wrote in- NONE of the above rats. What else could a sane person do? 1180

Torture en mass

Amnesty International says that the US government has been actually worsening conditions for POWs and other prisoners (many can't even be called POWs, since they were basically sold to the US by mercenary forces) held at Guantanamo. That can be only with deliberate intent, too. 1179

Pleading guilty to end the torture

David Hicks, the only Guantanamo torture victim to plead guilty, did so to end 5 years of unlawful imprisonment and torture. What a mockery of any legal justice or due process this charade is. The whole world should be ashamed for us Americans for allowing this Orwellian kangeroo trial to be held by our illegal and totally rotten and corrupted government. This is about the most shameful moment in my lifetime to have witnessed such abuse being done publicly, and without any sense of mass American public indignation, too. 1142

Matt Sanchez, new star of the pornball Right

Liberalism is not the great refuge of the American homosexual, but rather it is the Far Right that is! All one has to do is get too old to sustain a Gay porn career, anounce that you regret your 'liberal' hedonistic past, and then it's welcome open arms a head into a new life style with the nutster Christian Right, as a newly reformed 'faggot'. God be praised! 1100

Vets have to battle nasty US medical system like the rest of us

The bad conditions at Walter Reed Army Medical Center has brought many US soldiers from killing Iraqis into a new battle with their own US government. Now they and their families are not waving US flags so much as they discover what many of the elderly and sick amongst us already knew. The US government doesn't give much a damn about Afghans, Iraqis, nor the majority of US citizens either. 1095

Pueblo police steal baby from immigrant mom

One of the most unreported aspect of US immigration policy is how it breaks up immigrant families, oftentimes under the guise of saving children from abuse. The recent case of a undocumented mother in Pueblo accused of 'selling' her baby is case in point. 1086

Complex 2030- Are you buying this?

I don't know about you, but I feel like we are not spending enough money on the Iraq and Afghanistan adventures. Here's a good idea! Why not take all our perfectly good and functioning nuclear bombs and get rid of them? Hey, just kidding. This is America and there's no money to steal from the US Treasury if we just get rid of the nuclear weapons. So why not get rid of these bombs and then replace them with more nuclear bombs for the bargain price of more than $150 billion? Or maybe $200 billion dollars? Or maybe $250 billion? Aw who cares? It sounds like a great idea and it's called Complex 2030. 1002
