Flags, Fiascos, Fools ahd Hope

Tucson, Arizona. The Arizona Sonora Desert Museum has restored both US and Mexican flags over its facility and will now devote resources to improve security protecting innocent animals from malcontents regarding immigration reform.

I got a GOP flyer yesterday featuring Tucson Mayor Walkup with Republican city council candidates. It asserts the democratic city council has failed the city, noting the garbage fee. So the garbage fee is the fault of the democrats (no) and the garbage fee is a problem (no). Today's AZ Daily Star endorses the Mayor (his only opponent is a green party candidate) and the Democrats.

One does not require Tedski's network to know the Mayor and Democrats Rodney Glassman and Regina Romero will win, and Proposition 200 will fail.

Speaking of the obvious, stating what anyone paying attention can't help seeing, General Ricardo Sanchez has come out and declared the Iraq war a nightmare having no end in sight. What was his first clue? Former President Jimmy Carter, also stating what anyone paying attention can't help seeing, has declared that Dick Cheney is a disaster for this country.

Satan's wife, Lynne Cheney, observed, "Dogs don't bark at a parked car."

Yes, Lynne, one can anticipate hostile remarks when malignant evil devours the future of humanity for the short term gain of the super rich. Count me in as a barking dog. Washington considers Lord Cheney "Darth Vader" and Bush a mindless puppet because it's true. Your husband has succeeded and continues to succeed with his principle mission. Thanks to his efforts, we no longer have a constitution. The imperial presidency gets to do whatever it wants while an impotent Congress can complain but essentially do nothing, and the country now has the greatest rich poor gap since the 1920s. Eighty years of support for a middle class and the notion of prosperity for many have been wiped out.

Utterly unconcerned with the future, your husband has played the short term game masterfully. Clearly, the impending price tag and its brutal consequences are not his concern.

Meanwhile, as Turkish soldiers killed in the most deadly attack by Kurdish separatists in more than a decade are buried across Turkey amid emotional media coverage, and Turkey seriously considers invading Iraq to pursue Kurdish separatists, what does the House of Foreign Affairs Committee do?

As the above takes place, Iraqi officials are beginning to recognize the inevitable split of the country into three separate pieces each organized for the maximum profit of US oil corporations. The Iraqis themselves are introducing language supporting the partition. The conversation will grow, and the debate will have heated arguments on both sides.

I mentioned hope above. In a breathe of fresh air that points to the notion that perhaps in some way, some unforeseen sequence of sanity emerges, the Iraqi refugees, living one meal at a time, one day without violence at a time, have shed their divisional hatreds. Amongst the refugees, creating a sight that rips tears from the face and stirs the heart, we find Sunnis, Shiites, and Kurds struggling side by side to survive, aiding each other and forgiving all differences for the sake of living to see tomorrow.

Imagine.

Why is the media covering up what Sanchez spent most of his speech talking about. In short he talked about how bad the media reported the Iraq situation. It could be concluded that the main stream media and the leftist have blood on their hands. Because the actions of the Media and the left have aided the terriost and helped kill proud US solders.

I read the comment deleted above prior to its deletion and thought it was a good one, basically informing our anon here that he's an idiot.

The notion that somehow the "left" or the "media" has contributed to the fiasco is stupid beyond stupid.

Iraq is a GOP war created by the GOP, supported by the GOP, and continues by the will of the GOP. The country wants it to end, and the WH and its GOP whores don't care what the country thinks, and the Democrats don't have the votes to turn it around, yet.

The Democrats need to drill it into the national psyche that only with sufficient majorities and the White House can they end the madness.

since when did a party have to hold all branches of government to get anything done? I would buy into the slim majority argument more if the democrats actually made the reps filibuster, and still couldn't pass anything.

I find it ironic that the mayor would attack the Dems for the garbage fee the turn around and attack the prop that would do away with it.
