Who Will Say 'No More'?

Gary Hart making overatures for run at the 2008 presidency? Mycos
Who Will Say 'No More'? By Gary Hart 08/24/05 'Washington Post ' -- -- 'Waist deep in the Big Muddy and the big fool said to push on,' warned an anti-Vietnam war song those many years ago. The McGovern presidential campaign, in those days, which I know something about, is widely viewed as a cause for the decline of the Democratic Party, a gateway through which a new conservative era entered.

Like the cat that jumped on a hot stove and thereafter wouldn't jump on any stove, hot or cold, today's Democratic leaders didn't want to make that mistake again. Many supported the Iraq war resolution and -- as the Big Muddy is rising yet again -- now find themselves tongue-tied or trying to trump a war president by calling for deployment of more troops. Thus does good money follow bad and bad politics get even worse. "

Iraq's Unseen War: The Photos Washington Doesn't Want You To See

By Gary Kamiya

This is a war the Bush administration does not want Americans to see. From the beginning, the U.S. government has attempted to censor information about the Iraq war, prohibiting photographs of the coffins of U.S. troops returning home and refusing as a matter of policy to keep track of the number of Iraqis who have been killed. President Bush has yet to attend a single funeral of a soldier killed in Iraq. The grim reality of Iraq rarely appears in the American press. A photo gallery reveals the war's horrible human toll. "

Drug Jihadists: Get your moralizing meathooks off me!

It has now been confirmed by the Vancouver Sun that not only have US drug-cops been arresting Canadian citizens with the acquiescence of the RCMP, but that they have been doing so using agreements signed by own government. Those agreements were made during the hysteria that followed the WTC attack. As such, they were poorly considered and signed during a time when cooler heads *did not* prevail south of the border. It also means that during the whole time we sat here smug in the knowledge that our government, being a mature democracy, would never let our freedoms be overturned during moments of such national hysteria. Yet they have been making fools of us by doing precisely that. As such, it would be fair to point out that every freedom lost to us since 9/11 was the result of actions taken by our own politicians. One would also do well to remember that "terrorism" was taking place long before that day; that terrorism has been investigated and brought to trial--- before and since --- using the same old tried and true methods that were in place long before 9/11.

But what is new is the behaviour of our own governments since then. Apparently they feel that the we have been so paralyzed with fear by the spectacle of 9/11 that they are now free to move ahead with arrests they would never have dared even consider only 5 years ago. The drug warriors, not unlike the Moslem Jihadist sitting in their mountain villages, have decided that the time is right to attempt to force their set of moral values on those of us who do not yet hold these same. Yes, it is the men sitting in the back-rooms of the legislature who conspire to take away our freedoms, hoping we would be so traumatized by the spectacle of 9/11 that we might be willing to sell out our freedoms to obtain a little security. As Ben Franklin seemed to foretell with such clarity all those many years past, "Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both." Surely Mr. Franklin would speak quite poorly of the mindless morality that has somehow found its way into the bedrooms of today. Mycos

FRI has no trouble with empiricism — that’s what we are about. Mental healthism, since it relies primarily upon propaganda instead of hard evidence, has much in common with Nazism, Communism, and the gay rights movement."


"Mental Healthism"..LOL!
Yup, if your going to do a trash job on something, it's always a good idea to first turn it into an "ism". You know, like fascism, communism....Satanism!!. But "mental health-ism"? Isn't that a little like "going to school-ism"... with a car-ism with a nice paint-job-ism", hoping that the girls will notice your atractive-ism...???
What the hell is the matter with these loons? And why does the news continue to give them the time of day? If it wasn't for the credibilty that simply appearing on TV gives them, no-one would feel like they had anything worth saying, quite simply because they don't. And you can take that to the bank-ism

That's right MAF and all you other pseudo-patriot groups. Now that you're over there, you might as well "complete the mission" as you keep saying. I just hope you's are all now asking yourselves just what exactly the frigging mission is supposed to be?!!

Ahhh..geez.I dunno.?? Why are you all so damned determined to take this thing to it's bitter end, rather than admit that you have been lied to repeatedly, and for reasons that are so selfish and trivial that any dictator with even a hint of pride would blush if the truth were known. Un-fucking-believable.....



If the Bush administration brokered a deal in Occupied Iraq to enshrine Islamic law as the guiding principle of the new Iraqi Constitution, you'd think it would be headline news in the U.S. media, wouldn't you? Well, that's what has happened -- yet you canIraq_flag search the Sunday papers in vain to find this sell-out to the Islamists clearly portrayed -- or, in some cases, even mentioned."

The U.S. Attorney prosecuting three Canadians in the cross-border drug tunnel case will ask a Seattle judge next week to seize the B.C. property on which the tunnel was constructed.

A court order would mean the little piece of Canada on Zero Avenue would be surrendered to the U.S. government if property owner Francis Devandra Raj is convicted on trafficking charges, regardless of whether individuals or banks in Canada have an outstanding claim on the Langley land."
