Cool pic

This is what I call a cool pic.

Actually I have seen his guy John Cornyn in action and he is just a puppy dog, a rubber stamp, a puppet, a parrot of George Bush and Dick Cheney. He just repeats whatever his bosses at the White House tells him to say and votes in the way his is told. No self opinion or self initiative whatsoever. This man has the name public servant only in that, in name. Like Bush, he is a mole that serves only Dick Cheney and the special interests that bought the GOP many years ago.


Hispanics giving up on GOP

"Latino voters across the country feel increasingly alienated from the GOP as Republicans are “fighting to see who is more anti-immigration"

Tell me something I don't know.



Hispanic Marketer Lionel Sosa Gives Up on GOP
La Voz, Posted: Oct 31, 2007
WASHINGTON — For the first time, well-known GOP Hispanic marketing consultant Lionel Sosa won't be backing a Republican presidential candidate, reports La Voz, the Houston Chronicle’s Spanish-language publication. Sosa says the GOP’s harsh stance on immigration has made him question the direction of the party. Sosa, 68, who has worked on the campaigns of Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush, is endorsing Democratic presidential candidate Bill Richardson. La Voz reports that Sosa’s disillusionment with the Republican Party reflects a wider trend: Latino voters across the country feel increasingly alienated from the GOP as Republicans are “fighting to see who is more anti-immigration," according to Sosa. But Democrats haven’t closed the deal with Latino voters either, adds Sosa, noting the lack of outreach to Hispanic voters in the presidential campaigns of Al Gore and John Kerry.

A little bit about the practice of Rendition and the movie

A must see for anyone who loves freedom.


Nobel winner James Watson: Black people are not as intelligent as white people

Nobel laureate biologist James Watson was suspended from his job after comments that black people are not as intelligent as white people. However, I have the perfect example to prove this is not true: Collin Powell vs. George Bush. Powell not only won the first gulf war, but advocated for the right strategy during this gulf war. Even decided to leave the administration before seeing his reputation being dragged into the current Iraq mess. Definitely the smarter of the Bush administration and the smarter Republican alive.


What every America-loving citizen should be working on

1. Fight Corporate Attacks on the Free and Open Internet

2. Campaign to advance Health Care for All

3. Stop the Bush administration from taking military action against Iran without seeking Congressional authority first

4. Advance energy independence through clean renewable resources

5. Ensure that Every Vote is Counted in our Elections

6. Guarantee Health Care for Millions of Children

7. Start working on taking back the White House in 2008

8. Demand the News Media Ask Tough Questions and Act as a Watchdog

9. Demand an Exit Strategy for Iraq

10. Campaign to restore Constitutional Rights and Liberties

11. Work to Stop Global Warming and Solve the Climate Crisis

True, wise words from Bill Richardson


These are the best summary I have seen of why "Bush diplomacy" is just "moronic". Kudos to Richardson.

Obama and Cheney related!

It appears that Barack Obama and Dick Cheney are relatives. But this brings something else. Was Obama saying a few weeks back, during his campaign speeches, that a vote for Hillary Clinton was a vote for the political status quo of Washington insiders? But it looks to me that a vote for Obama could be a vote for the status quo of the Cheney dynasty!!!........I am joking!!! I'll take Obama any day and night over Bush, Cheney and any of those crazy-right-wing, racist, fanatics, obtuse-minded so called "conservative" "republicans" that have hijacked the old Great Old Party.


Fred "Lazy" Thompson: "I'm going to do it the way I want to do it."

Fred "Lazy" Thompson defends his style of campaigning for the Republican nomination by saying that he will do it the way he wants to do it! And I say to Fred, way to go boy! Show them who's the boss! Don't let them pressure you. Learn from the mistakes of your buddy Senator Craig. Don't yield to pressure.

Bush veto of SCHIP stands

Shame on Bush and all the Republicans that voted against this important bill. Those are the same Republicans that have voted to spend $100 billion per year to make war in Iraq, but cannot spend $7 billion per year to provide health coverage to 10 million children. Actions speak so loud by themselves that no more words are needed.

We will remember this blatant abandonment of our children on November 4, 2008.


Brownback dropping from the Republican rat race

One out, a few more to go.

It is funny. They say they are conservatives, but guess which candidate is ahead in their nomination race...Giuliani!, the less conservative of all! And guess who is in second place in this party of good old christian boys (and girls)... Romney! the only one that is not a main street Christian (he's a Mormon). In the meantime, the ones with all the "credentials" are being rejected by their own and will be dropping one by one from the race. I say today 10/18/07 that the nominee will be Rudy Giuliani.

from The Hill: Privatized Part D Means $3.9 Billion in Taxes

For some reason this come to no surprise to me. Did you really think that George Bush would actually do something that would benefit the people over corporations? HA! Keep dreaming.

Privatized Part D Means $3.9 Billion in Taxes (Rep. Paul Hodes)
October 16th, 2007

In 2003, President Bush told Congress that privatizing the delivery of Medicare services would lead to better coverage and huge savings. But yesterday the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee released a study showing that instead of bringing down costs, allowing private insurance companies to handle Part D has added $3.9 billion to our annual tax bill. It turns out that these companies aren’t able to negotiate prices with the same power traditional Medicare has, and that the small savings they are able to affect are not being passed on to consumers.

Needlessly handing over billions of tax dollars to insurance companies is not what I call fiscal conservatism. It is clear that this program has turned into a windfall for private insurance companies at taxpayer expense, and it’s time to look for methods that are friendlier to taxpayers and consumers alike.

Full report:

Believe it or not! Smart words from John McCain

"I believe the greatest strength of America is the lady who holds her lamp behind the golden door that says send me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses," "And I am grateful to live in a nation that has been enriched by people coming to our nation from around the world."
"I will do everything in my power to secure the borders, but I love this nation and I love the people who have come from around the world,"

One of the very few intelligent things McCain has said during his campaign.

Al Gore, the Man of the Moment!

Al Gore won the Nobel Peace Prize and congratulations are in order.

We all know that Al Gore is the real President of the United States. George Bush is just an usurper that haven't measured to the task in eight years, has brought shame to the United States and to the institution of the Presidency.

If Al Gore decides to run for president, all democratic candidates must drop their bids and rally around Al. Together with the American people we would kick all Republicans out of the White House, the House and the Senate; to the kingdom come.

"Get Congress Out of the Classroom"

"Despite the rosy claims of the Bush administration, the No Child Left Behind Act of 2002 is fundamentally flawed."

Is this pattern familiar to you? The Bush administration making rosy claims that something is working, when evidence on the contrary keeps piling? A big banner stating "Mission Accomplished" comes to my mind, plus countless of statements and speeches stating that conditions in Iraq were improving, that "victory" (whatever that means) was just around the corner, we should just give it some more time. And as time passes, it just gets worse, losses pile and the waste is insurmountable.

Have you seen the movie "Man of the Year" with Robin Williams? He said that politicians are like diapers. They need to be changed frequently and for the same reasons (they get full of shit).

Well, I agree completely and I think it's time for a diaper change. And because none of the other parties are really contenders, I have decided that there is no choice, but to support Democrat candidates on 2008.

I found this on


McCain OK with Bush's veto

John McCain said Bush did the right thing by veto the bill expanding health coverage for poor children (SCHIP). I don't know if you have noticed, but lately McCain is looking more like a clone of George Bush than the John McCain who once ran as maverick for the Republican nomination. I don't know what happened to McCain, but apparently he got tired of swimming against the flow, and decided to take it easy. Unfortunately, that's the best way of becoming irrelevant very quickly, as is happening to McCain right now. If he wanted to revive his campaign, he should found somebody else to imitate than George Bush. Among all people George Bush, my God! I guess McCain thinks that by imitating Bush he could get a few million "electronic ballots" thrown out and win the Republican nomination, and then get the presidency with the help of Diebold and the Supreme Court.


Shame on Clear Channel

Apparently Clear Channel does not see anything wrong on Rush "Limbo's" comments against our military. I guess "Limbo's" boss is in the same "rush" as his employee (probably by smoking the same thing).

MAKE THEM PAY! Yes to the war surtax

My grandpa used to say that with the mouth is very easy. Meaning those who speak, but are not willing to take action. Well, a similar situation we have here with the funding of the Iraq war. Republicans like to speak about support to the war, what better support to the war than putting our own pockets in it. Everybody likes OPM (other people's money). From investor to thieves, everybody is quick to grab and spend the money of others. But it is a shame when that is our own children's, grandchildren's, great-grandchildren's and great-great-grandchildren's money. If Republicans were really fiscally responsible (obviously with Bush they lost that title years ago) and had honor, would accept this surtax and face their responsibility to the American people and future generations.

"Limbo's" Phony soldiers

The problem with Rush Limbo and the likes is that they believe they are some sort of guardian of America and when anyone who contradicts them is either a traitor, unpatriotic or yes...a phony. And the phony...I mean funny thing is that they are always taken "out of context". Come on Rush, if you fell such a big man behind your mike insulting everybody you dislike or does not think like you, be also a big man to recognize you got a FOB moment.

What we need to watch is if Republicans will be willing to condemn Rush Limbo in the same spectacle they did with the MoveOn ad. And also if the Democrats have the enough cojones to push it through.
