And this was said with a straight face!

This from the shrub! Talk about strange statements.

Does the man even think about what he is saying or apply it to himself? Or does he just repeat the words that someone wrote for him as they bypass whatever is left of his drug and alcohol damaged brain ? Or is he currently doing drugs and alcohol?

And did he ever really stop the same behavior? I think this is another of the long sad saga of Rovian lies [that the shrub was ever off drugs and alcohol.]
"The world has watched with alarm as Russia invaded a sovereign neighboring state and threatened a democratic government elected by its people," Bush said in his weekly radio address. "This act is completely unacceptable to the free nations of the world."

What else can they do?

I am concerned that as the "cornered animals" in DC worry about January 21st - they are doing all the damage they can do between now and then to ensure our country is never free of their meddling.

Do you think contraception is the same as abortion? If you don't - read this and sign the MoveOn petition...
Can you imagine living in a place where birth control is considered an "abortion" and health insurers won't cover it? Where even rape victims are denied emergency contraception?

It seems unbelievable, but the Bush Administration is quietly trying to redefine "abortion" to include birth control. The Houston Chronicle says this could wipe out dozens of state laws that protect women's reproductive freedom and protect rape victims. And this proposed "rule change" doesn't need congressional approval.

I just signed a message to Health and Human Services Secretary Mike Leavitt, whose department is considering this rule change, telling him: "Contraception is NOT abortion." Can you add your voice to this cause? Click here to sign the message:


Arkansas Democrat Party Chair Dead

When I heard about the shooting of Arkansas Democratic Party Chairman Bill Gwatney, my immediate thought was this is the direct result of the venom spewed forth by those at Faux Noise and their ilk...those rabid repugs who like to keep saying "kill" democrats...or wishing democrats dead, etc.

Then when heard that Gwatney died, I wanted Faux Noise and the rest to be help legally accountable. But with the current gang in charge in D.C. and in the courts, and the DOJ, it will be written off a one "bad apple" acting alone..and the repugs will say they are so sorry but they have freedom of speech to spew hatred.

Well guess what - freedom of speech is NOT the right to say what you want. It comes with caveats and uncrossable line...and the repugs are well over all the legal lines with their repugnant hate filled rhetoric...

Since many of us in all 50 states spend time at our local and state democratic headquarters - be careful - too many Faux Noise on air idiots want us dead and are encouraging their listeners to do exactly that!

PDX Meteor Showers

The Perseid meteor showers start tonight - but the air in Portland proper has been pretty dirty of late - and it is a city!
So if you want to see the meteor showers you need to get way to a spot with no city lights...

OMSI is doing a meteor watch tonight - 9PM at Rooster Rock info here

Last year I could not see nay from my deck - but having seen these showers in the past when I was in "cleaner sky areas" - if you can get away do so - it can be awe inspiring!
