Pelosi would be a better President than Shrub

I heard on the radio today that according to polls, the only people who are more unpopular than Bush are the Democratic Congress. And apparently it's been that way for a while. I know why. It's because Bush is as deceitful as he is, and they do nothing about it. They don't call him on it. The only way for this group of Democrats to earn the respect of the people during this term would be to finally stand up for what is true and right about our country, and impeach both our president and our vice president.

The Independent Media Likes Ron Paul

This video contains sound footage of Ron Paul speaking, combined with photographs instead of video, so it is quick to download. It mainly concerns the fact that the mass corporate media is still studiously ignoring RP, andn the fact that the campaign is going surprisingly well, in spite of the media boycot. Not only is RP popular on the web, but he is being covered by more independent media sources. Young people are showing a strong interest in what RP has to say, which to me is not a surprise since they are the ones getting screwed by our current system. They stand to gain the most from a change of course. Here's the vid:



So one friend of mine recently heard RP speak and said that he is a "nut". He had in fact said that RP was a nut, then retracted it when I said I like RP, then restated the "nut" claim after another exposure. Because RP sounds so reasonable to me, I know that some of my most basic assumptions must be completely different from this friend. So my question to you: what is nutty about RP? From your point of view?

The Neocons are still Forging Forward

I just picked up my Harper's magazine and read this in a letter to the editor from Ian Alterman of New York:

"Although it's true that the president has not tampered with the Third Amendment, he did undermine the closest thing to it: the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878, which prohibits military personnel or a federalized National Guard from acting in a law-enforcement capactiy within the United States. The president slipped a provision into this year's defense budget that makes it easier for him to override local control of law enforcement and declare martial law. Along with the evisceration of habeas corpus, this may be the single most dangerous attack on civil liberties undertaken by the Bush administration."

What? Shrub is laying the groundwork for controlling by force the populace of the United States. We have got to get rid of these guys before they steal another election and proclaim martial law to keep control.

Aren't YOU alarmed?
