  1. Tthere’s not much advance notice, but we need to be there to protest these RATS tomorrow.

  2. And rats they were, too. Watching Ken Salazar pretend to oppose Pinon Canyon or the Iraq war, and always playing Mr Goodbar with the likes of Richard Skorman in tow makes one want to vomit.

    It really gets me when I hear people say that he is not a Democrat really….. as they always put it. Well he really is though, Folks. It’s as silly as would be saying that Tony Blair is not really a Labor Party leader. Well, duh, he really is, too, a Labor hack. We got Democratic party hacks, and they got Labor Party hacks. Both act like Tories, too.

    All these folks want is more base, more bombs, and more cops. They want it whether they call themselves Democrats or Republicans. Pretty simple to figure out really. Yes, Ken Salazar is a Democratic Party politician and he’s sticking with the Pentagon all the way.

    I had to leave as it is just too phony to listen to.
