545 People are responsible for the misery rampant in the United States of America!


Why don't we call a spade a frickin' spade - what we get are LIES.

Here's Scott Ritter on the DM

Example #1:

Pelosi Plans $178 Billion Blank Check for Iraq
"Measured in blood and treasure, the war in Iraq has achieved the status of a major war and a major debacle."

That's not from the peace movement - it's from the National Defense University, written by a senior Pentagon official who served under Donald Rumsfeld.

Yet despite the overwhelming opposition of the American people, Speaker Pelosi plans to rush a vote through Congress for another $178 billion blank check.

We must stop this madness. Tell Congress: No More Funds for Iraq

Activists around the country are organizing Iraq Town Halls so we can speak directly to our Representatives:

Unfortunately most Representatives are afraid to face us at our Town Halls, so we're organizing May Day Protests outside their District Offices on Thursday, May 1 at noon.

May 1 is the original Labor Day, and several unions are going on strike to protest the Iraq War. It's also "Mission Accomplished Day" (2003) and "Downing Street Minutes Day" (2005). Can you join us?

Thanks for all you do!


Torture News Strike

After George Bush told ABC News he personally approved of the approval of torture - including waterboarding - you'd think the story would be front page news, not just on Countdown and The Daily Show.

But you'd be wrong. There has been absolutely no news coverage and just a handful of editorials in the Brattleboro (Vt.) Reformer, Kansas City Star, Seattle Post-Intelligencer, and Tuscaloosa (Ala.) News.

If your newspaper is missing, help us organize a Torture News Strike.

Call your newspaper editor and tell him/her you are suspending your subscription until they give Bush's torture confession the serious coverage it deserves in the news or editorial sections, or preferably both. Then call the circulation department and tell them to suspend delivery until further notice.

And post about it with your neighbors here:


Torture Impeachment Petition Collects 35,000 Signatures!

One week ago, we asked you to sign our petition to Congress to impeach Bush and Cheney for approving torture.

Your response was incredible! In just one week, we delivered 35,000 signatures to our Representatives and Senators!

If you haven't yet signed, please visit:

Dr. Martin Luther King famously said of the Vietnam War, "A time comes when silence is betrayal." When our President and Vice President personally approve torture, that time is now.
Of course, a year later, his ass was whacked.

Here's the issue: we have homeless veterans who are jobless, thanks to the short-sighted mindlessness of our military. We have jobs that PROFIT from outsourcing...but who will have money to buy your stupid products? You might get away with paying people in rice, but that won't help your bottom line when NO ONE HAS MONEY IN THE MARKET YOUR GOODS ARE SELLING.

Stupid asses.

Example #2:


“One hundred nations in the UN have not agreed with us on just about everything that’s come before them, where we’re involved, and it didn’t upset my breakfast at all.

–Ronald Reagan, on the international reaction to the U.S. invasion of Grenada, November 3, 1983

The above quote just about summed up The Great Communicator’s take on pegging U.S. foreign policy to international approval rates.

Liberals take a different view. Seemingly, liberals equate international approval –especially by the Europeans–with the worthiness of a U.S. foreign policy goal.

What would American foreign policy look like under Democrats/liberals? Forget about Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, the last two Democrat presidents, and let them tell it in their own words.

Twenty liberal quotes about the United States and other countries.

“There was no imminent threat. This was made up in Texas, announced in January to the Republican leadership that war was going to take place and was going to be good politically. This whole thing was a fraud.

–Edward Kennedy, Democrat Senator, MA. Kennedy also said “We’ve known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeing and developing weapons of mass destruction.” September 27, 2002.

“The greatest crime since World War II has been U.S. foreign policy.

–Ramsey Clark, former Democrat Attorney General

“[T]he war in Iraq has done more to embolden America’s enemies than any strategic choice that we have made in decades.

–Barack Obama, Democrat presidential candidate, March 19, 2008

“I believe … that this war is lost, and this surge is not accomplishing anything, as is shown by the extreme violence in Iraq this week.

–Harry Reid, Democrat Senate Majority Leader, April 18 2007

“I would like to apologize for referring to George W. Bush as a “deserter.” What I meant to say is that George W. Bush is a deserter, an election thief, a drunk driver, a WMD liar and a functional illiterate.

–Michael Moore

“He’s (Osama bin Laden) been out in these countries for decades, building schools, building roads, building infrastructure, building day-care facilities, building health-care facilities, and these people are extremely grateful. We haven’t done that.

–Patty Murray- Democratic Senator Washington (speech to a high school honors class)

“Republicans are men of narrow vision, who are afraid of the future.

–Jimmy Carter. Carter inaugurated full diplomatic relations with the People’s Republic of China in 1979, thus cutting formal U. S. ties with the Nationalist Chinese government on Taiwan. Conservatives severely criticized the treaties as a “sellout” of vital American interests.

“He betrayed this country! He played on our fears! He took America on an ill-conceived foreign adventure dangerous to our troops, an adventure pre-ordained and planned before 9/11 ever took place!”
–Al Gore. Gore also said, “We know that [Saddam Hussein] has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country.” September 23, 2002.

“This war has been a grotesque mistake that has diminished our reputation in the world and has not made America safer.

–Nancy Pelosi, Democrat House Leader, September 24, 2004

“In two short years, George W. Bush has taught us what the ‘W’ stands for — wrong. Wrong for our children, wrong for our parents, wrong for our values. Wrong, wrong, wrong for America.

John Edwards- Democratic Senator North Carolina (February 23, 2003 )

“Our paradigm now seems to be: something terrible happened to us on September 11, and that gives us the right to interpret all future events in a way that everyone else in the world must agree with us. And if they don’t, they can go straight to hell.

–Bill Clinton, former Democrat president who was “obsessed with terrorism”

“[Iraq is] the worst strategic mistake in the entire history of the United States–worse than a civil war.

–Al Gore

“Did I expect George Bush to f— it up as badly as he did? I don’t think anybody did.

–John Kerry, Democratic Senator Massachusetts

“One could say that Osama bin Laden and these non-nation-state fighters with religious purpose are very similar to those kind of atypical revolutionaries that helped to cast off the British crown.

–Marcy Kaptur- Democratic Representative Ohio

“Bin Laden didn’t come from the abstract. He came from somewhere, and if you look where … you’ll see America’s hand of villainy.

–Harry Belafonte. Belefonte played an ex-Union Army cavalry soldier in “Buck and the Preacher”.

“I mean, I think, Iraqis, I think, feel that if we drove smaller cars, maybe we wouldn’t have to kill them for their oil.

–Bill Mahr , Larry King Live (November 1, 2002)

“I despise him [President George W. Bush]. I despise his administration and everything they stand for. It is an embarrassing time to be an American. It really is. It’s humiliating.

–Jessica Lange, film festival in Spain (September 25, 2002)

“We don’t know whether in the long run the Iraqi people are better off, and the most important thing is we don’t know whether we’re better off.

–Howard Dean - Former Democrat Governor of Vermont and Democrat Presidential Candidate in 2004 (Meet The Press 6/22/03).

“This is a racist and imperialist war. The warmongers who stole the White House have hijacked a nation’s grief and turned it into a perpetual war on any non-white country they choose to describe as terrorist.

–Woody Harrelson. Actor Harrelson played a colonel in the movie, Pinkville.

“Bush says you’re either with us or against us. I don’t know who ‘us’ is. I say to Mr. Bush—this is what democracy looks like. We will not give our daughters and sons for a war for oil.

–Susan Sarandon. Sarandon played the wife of a retired army military police sergeant in “Valley of Elah”.

That’s the way liberal foreign policy would work.

The reader might want to print this out for quick reference.

One last well-known quote by Ronald Reagan sums up conservative reaction to the above collection:

“The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they’re ignorant: It’s just that they know so much that isn’t so."
Okay...that's it for the quotes. Let's talk about some important stuff.

We The People do not like what our "representatives" are doing. For one, they are NOT representing WE THE PEOPLE in any way. They are in office, it seems, for their own benefit.

Here's a litany of HRC's lies to you and I, by Dick Morris.

Hillary's List of Lies

By Dick Morris

The USA Today/Gallup survey clearly explains why Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) is losing. Asked whether the candidates were "honest and trustworthy," Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) won with 67 percent, with Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) right behind him at 63. Hillary scored only 44 percent, the lowest rating for any candidate for any attribute in the poll.

Hillary simply cannot tell the truth. Here's her scorecard:

Admitted Lies

• Chelsea was jogging around the Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. (She was in bed watching it on TV.)
• Hillary was named after Sir Edmund Hillary. (She admitted she was wrong. He climbed Mt. Everest five years after her birth.)
• She was under sniper fire in Bosnia. (A girl presented her with flowers at the foot of the ramp.)
• She learned in The Wall Street Journal how to make a killing in the futures market. (It didn't cover the market back then.)

Whoppers She Won't Confess To

• She didn't know about the FALN pardons.
• She didn't know that her brothers were being paid to get pardons that Clinton granted.
• Taking the White House gifts was a clerical error.
• She didn't know that her staff would fire the travel office staff after she told them to do so.
• She didn't know that the Peter Paul fundraiser in Hollywood in 2000 cost $700,000 more than she reported it had.
• She opposed NAFTA at the time.
• She was instrumental in the Irish peace process.
• She urged Bill to intervene in Rwanda.
• She played a role in the '90s economic recovery.
• The billing records showed up on their own.
• She thought Bill was innocent when the Monica scandal broke.
• She was always a Yankees fan.
• She had nothing to do with the New Square Hasidic pardons (after they voted for her 1,400-12 and she attended a meeting at the White House about the pardons).
• She negotiated for the release of refugees in Macedonia (who were released the day before she got there).

With a record like that, is it any wonder that we suspect her of being less than honest and straightforward?

Why has McCain jumped out to a nine-point lead over Obama and a seven-point lead over Hillary in the latest Rasmussen poll? OK, Obama has had the Rev. Wright mess on his hands. And Hillary has come in for her share of negatives, like the Richardson endorsement of Obama and the denouement of her latest lie -- that she endured sniper fire during a trip to Bosnia. But why has McCain gained so much in so short a period of time? Most polls had the general election tied two weeks ago.

McCain's virtues require a contrast in order to stand out. His strength, integrity, solidity and dependability all are essentially passive virtues, which shine only by contrast with others. Now that Obama and Hillary are offering images that are much weaker, less honest, and less solid and dependable, good old John McCain looks that much better as he tours Iraq and Israel while the Democrats rip one another apart.

It took Nixon for us to appreciate Jimmy Carter's simple honesty. It took Clinton and Monica for us to value George W. Bush's personal character. And it takes the unseemly battle among the Democrats for us to give John McCain his due.

When Obama faces McCain in the general election (not if but when) the legacy of the Wright scandal will not be to question Obama's patriotism or love of America. It will be to ask if he has the right stuff (pardon the pun).

The largest gap between McCain and Obama in the most recent USA Today/Gallup Poll was on the trait of leadership. Asked if each man was a "strong, decisive leader," 69 percent felt that the description fit McCain while only 56 percent thought it would apply to Obama. (61 percent said it of Hillary.) Obama has looked weak handling the Rev. Wright controversy. His labored explanation of why he attacks the sin but loves the sinner comes across as elegant but, at the same time, feeble. Obama's reluctance to trade punches with his opponents makes us wonder if he could trade them with bin Laden or Ahmadinejad. We have no doubt that McCain would gladly come to blows and would represent us well, but about Obama we are not so sure.

Ron Paul is doing another fund-raising effort - see next.

This is a critical time for our country… Ron Paul is our beacon and he needs more support in Congress to make real change.

Such support will come from a leader with integrity such as Steven Vasquez, an MBA (RPI), entrepreneur (successful tech business called ReQuest), and a key member in the NY Ron Paul grassroot movement that helped lead to over 7% in the Super Tuesday primary, with no major media or national campaign support. Two of his top priorities are scaling back our military presence overseas and reducing wasteful spending. Steven is running in the NY 21st District and has one of the best chances of winning among the 40 Ron Paul Republicans. The incumbent is retiring this year, leaving an open seat (98% of the time the incumbent wins). Steven took up Ron Paul’s calling to run locally and will make the hard choices to protect our country and our liberties.

Steven needs your help to win this race. He needs over $200,000 to run a winning campaign. The Ron Paul movement is just getting started! Follow these 4 steps towards freedom… remember, that this one step to initiate hope, multiplied by many, leads to change:

1. Please visit http://www.steven2008.com and donate at least $75, $21, or $10.

2. Join Steven's Myspace Page at:
http://www. myspace.com/stevenvasquez

3. Become a supporter of Steven’s Facebook page at:
http://www. facebook. com/pages/Steven-Vasquez/12851159663

4. Send this message to 4 or more your like-minded friends.

If not you, then who… if not now, then when… be the change that you want to see in our country.
Hell...if you wanna send me money so I can do this all day...tell me just how many of you are interested in hearing/reading my rants.
Just in case you are wondering, here are my choices for who SHOULD be running for President of the United States of America:

1. Mike Gravel
2. Ron Paul
3. Bill Richardson
4. Dennis Kucinich

All of the others should get out NOW.

Mike Gravel lays down the law!

Last, but not least: a report regarding Fourteen Points of Agreement with the "official" government reports on the destruction of the World Trade Center Buildings/a>
