as if the medical industry wasnt already cleaning up...

I'm seeing all these health insurance commercials promising to help people avoid catastrophy by getting their insurance. cause if they dont, they'll never be able to dig out of their hospital bills.

nice job, george. let's make people vulnerable by letting employers drop their employee benefits, then send in the wolves to clean up.

nice job.

lie # 4,337

state dept spokesman replying to the release of new U.S. torture photos released overseas.

"we continue to not release photos in order to protect the privacy of the detainees."

I'm getting very used to flinging fingers at the tv these days. on another front entirely, gnomeland security head chertoff is getting the most fingers today in the midst of congressional hearings.

the result of U.S. foreign policy

In Houston, where homicides rose 24 percent last year, disputes were by far the largest category, 113 out of 336 killings. Officials were alarmed by the increase in murders well before Hurricane Katrina swelled the city's population by 150,000 people in September; the police say 18 homicides were related to evacuees.

In Philadelphia, where 380 homicides made 2005 the deadliest year since 1997, 208 were disputes; drug-related killings, which accounted for about 40 percent of homicides during the high-crime period of the early 1990's, accounted for just 13 percent.

"When we ask, 'Why did you shoot this guy?' it's, 'He bumped into me,' 'He looked at my girl the wrong way,' " said Police Commissioner Sylvester M. Johnson of Philadelphia. "It's not like they're riding around doing drive-by shootings. It's arguments — stupid arguments over stupid things."

.... ... "stupid arguments over stupid things". sound familiar? I believe a goodly portion of the population will echo the demeanor of its president. when he says "youre either with us or against us" and all the militaristic wild west crap bush is famous for that attitude is going to find its way to the streets. how much wisdom do you need to realize such rhetoric is clearly a sign of personal weakness and negative self image?

snd of course there's that word "stupid". no other president in my life has earned that adjective.

and the knfe in the back

yet another how is this possible...

so, the day after, here comes the budget vote in which the repugnuts slash the domestic budget again much to the glee of bushites everywhere. hundreds of billions for the military while taking more money out of education, healthcare and services for the poor.

here's a short animation about it. I didnt realize how much More we were spending on the pentagon compared to the rest of the world. ridiculous.


Same shit, different year...again.

Of course its the same shit....they figure by the time 2008 rolls around, he'll have it nailed and can deliver it pretty much on spot. Change it up any and, well, thats tantamount to defeat....not to mention bushy being unable to pronounce the new words. I admit...I couldnt watch it. But the blurbs I saw were revolting. The monkeys in place, cue cards in position, Cheney looking like he could slit throats on cue with his hand goin into your wallet at the same time....typical state of disunion speech. And today, he's takin it on the road.....first stop? Nashville. Yee-haw.

lying ass son of a bitch

can he Be any more predictable...I dont know who I'm talking about here, bush, rove, whoever...?

can he be more formulaic? isnt this the same speech? I mean, isnt it?

there was that one long section where the order seemed identical as last year...

1. tell the military "Good Dog".
2. tell the rest of the citizens "Good Dog".
3. tell congress to keep cutting taxes.
4. tell the country about all the great domestic programs your going to start with absolutely no plan to implement any of them.
5. say God Bless America.
6. say Anybody seen my drink?

put the speech away for another day.

disgusting. though I have to admit, my lines were pretty much the same as last year, too.

1. ...yeah right
2. ...you idiot
3. ...whose fault is That, you moron?
4. ...Fuck You!
5. ...Fuck You!
6. ...Ass Hole!!!
7. ...you mother fucker
8. ...Fuck You! (applause on the right) Fuck all you guys!
9. ...yeah, right. that's ridiculous. lying ass son of a bitch!
10....you fucking idiot! Fuck YOU!!!

click on the title of the piece below to go to the link

anyway...for a man with little to say he certainly tries to say a lot. or is that the other way around? sometimes I get the impression he's being directed by tarantino or felini or some other bizarre italian avant gardist who's fucking with us for his own warped amusement.

listened to the press conference at...

interesting...on this page it says something like "sea island conference 2004". this is on the frigging white house dot gov page. what kind of intern is That? not monica, I can assure you. she always focused on what was at hand.

okay, enough of that. anyway, the conference was fairly typical bush accept that he was a bit more relaxed and letting his english (if you wanna call it that) go wherever it wanted to go. a strange mix of policy cliches, political speech fragments of the last several years and trying his best to be texas charming. which IS disarming if not totally doofus in practice.

obviously there was a plan to go from one question to the next in order only there were so many missing reporters some of the questions came off as unexpected so bush had to fall back again and again on the importance of a free iraq, the war against whatever and a few strange references back to hussein.

I especially love the contradictions and misdirections...how we're only in iraq to help the iraqis secure their country but of course theyre not ready to do that so it's their responsibility to secure their country and we're simply there to help them do that even though they cant.

how he never communicates with kadafi but he sent him a note about cooperating on the arab assasination a few years back. and, most glaringly, how he's always directed the government to operate within the law while the justice department works overtime to find loopholes in the law so he wont have to which is also a lawful pursuit because we're a nation of laws, a free nation who doesnt believe in torture even when it has to defend americans at all costs cause that's his job.

very bush. very entertaining. incredibly disturbing and maddening. that's our president.
