For those of you who can’t bring yourselves to watch Bush’s STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS and all the SELF SERVING FEEL GOOD/LALA Land lies that it will encompass, here is a piece by Dennis Kucinich that says it all.



The Truth About the State of our Union
by Dennis J. Kucinich

On Tuesday night President Bush will stand before the Congress and the nation, to deliver his annual State of the Union address. We are sure to hear a rosy tale of an economy on the rebound, a blossoming democracy in Iraq, a terror network on the run, and a Gulf Coast region rebuilding better and stronger than ever before. As is most often the case with this Administration, the rhetoric does not match reality.

The facts are clear. Our economy is struggling and leaving tens of millions of Americans behind. According to the non-partisan National Journal, since President Bush first stood before Congress and the nation in 2001, the median income in this country has decreased, the jobless rate has jumped from 3.9% to 4.9% and the number of families living in poverty has increased from 8.7% to 10.2%. Our trade deficit has doubled. Inflation has gone up. Personal bankruptcies have gone up. Consumer debt has gone up. College tuition has gone up. And, the price of gas has gone up. All the while, this Administration has turned a $128 billion federal budget surplus into a $319 billion deficit.

Today, almost 6 million more Americans do not have any health insurance than when President Bush took office. In total, over 45.5 million Americans, or over 15% of our total population, have no health care coverage at all.

During his 2003 address, President Bush told the nation that Saddam Hussein "had biological weapons sufficient to produce over 25,000 liters of anthrax", "materials sufficient to produce more than 38,000 liters of botulinum toxin", "as much as 500 tons of sarin, mustard and VX nerve agent" and "upwards of 30,000 munitions capable of delivering chemical agents".

Today, almost three years after the start of the President's war of choice, we know Iraq had no weapons of mass destruction, had no connection to al-Qaeda and posed no threat to our nation. Yet, our armed forces are bogged down in the middle of civil war that our own generals say cannot be won by military force. Our presence in Iraq is counterproductive and has cost the lives of over 2,200 US troops and $250 billion.


President Bush has delivered four State of the Union addresses since the attacks on our nation on 9/11. In four speeches, the President has never once mentioned Osama bin Laden, the mastermind of the terror attacks on this nation. The status of the FBI's most wanted man apparently is not important to the state of our union. Yet, in the same four speeches, President Bush has mentioned Saddam Hussein 24 times, and Iraq 78 times.

President Bush used the opening of his 2003 State of the Union to praise the creation of the Department of Homeland Security. This year our nation, and the world, saw the result of the failure of this massive reorganization of our government. As Katrina rolled ashore, destroying large cities and small towns in four states, it was FEMA, once an independent cabinet level agency--but now rolled into Department of Homeland Security--that failed to react. The searing image of thousands of Americans stranded without food and water dying on American streets will be the lasting legacy of the Department of Homeland Security, not a reorganized government "mobilizing against the threats of a new era" as the President described in his speech.

In his 2004 and 2005 addresses, the President spent a considerable amount of time advocating policies that would roll back much of the social progress made since the New Deal. In 2004, the President touted a Medicare prescription drug bill that will fatten the pockets of the pharmaceutical industry, endangering the future finances of the entire Medicare program, while leaving seniors confused and empty handed as they try to fill their prescriptions under the new plan. In 2005, the President used his address to promote his plan strip seniors of the guaranteed promise of Social Security, and replace it with a risky scheme to gamble their future in the stock market.

What the President has in store for his message this year is not known yet. But, we do know the President Bush will speak in glowing terms about the state of our union. The truth is the state of our union is in great peril. This Administration is conducting a war with no end in Iraq, illegally spying on Americans at home, overseeing an economy that is increasingly leaving more and more Americans behind and abandoning Gulf in their hour of great need.

If recent history is any precedent, then next week we should see more of the same old dance around reality that has been the hallmark of President Bush's annual address.

Since being elected to Congress in 1996, Kucinich has been a tireless advocate for worker rights, civil rights and human rights. He represents Ohio's 10th District.

BUSH “THE BLIND VISIONARY” AND THE COUNTDOWN TO ARMEGEDDON
or
THAT ‘S NOT A COOL BREEZE YOU FEEL…COULD IT BE A DRAFT???

Critical mass in the Middle East is about to be reached. The great Liberator BUSH who told us that if Democratic and FREE elections were allowed to take place in the Middle East little Americas would sprout up everywhere and all the problems of the area would evaporate ONCE AGAIN GOT IT ALL WRONG!!! Bush and his NEO CON Handlers are not getting quite what they expected when their conceptually FLAWED policies come face to face with REALITY.

Let’s look at the record:

Because of Democratic elections in the Middle East the only ones that can claim victory in the region are the Islamic Fascists. In Iran, Lebanon, Egypt the legions of the Islamic extremists have claimed victory in recent elections.
Also, in another FREE and DEMOCRATIC election this week, in Gaza, the terrorist group Hamas won in a landslide that shocked the world. All these showing clear support for RADICAL Islam and a clear affront to U.S. Policy in the region

Soon in Israel there will be elections. The SO CALLED peacemaker Sharon is out of the equation, with the election of HAMAS the peace process is no more and if Netanyahu is elected you can almost GUARENTEE war with HAMAS and IRAN!!! There is no way that Israel is going to sit back and allow itself to be surrounded by enemy states that want it wiped off the map.

If Israel takes any sort of action against Iran you can also guarantee that the US will be sucked into the conflict in no time and that things in Iraq, as bad as they are now, will go from bad to worse as Iranians start to pour across the Iraq border to do battle with the AMERICAN INFIDELS.

Well, the only ones that are happy with the current developments in the Middle East these days are the Right Wing Bible Banging Zealots that put our fearless leader back in power in 04. The PINHEADED LOGIC of these fringe Wackos is that with the meltdown of the Middle East will trigger Armageddon and the Return of Christ. Yep, like everything else that has turned to CRAP since Bush took office you can now add his MID EAST policy to the list. Looks like Neo Conservatism and is about to be relegated to scrap heap of History with Communism, Fascism, Supply Side Economics etc. as just another half-baked and misguided DOGMA that sounds good on paper, but in the realm of reality is just another crock O' Shiite.


Watch for the FOX NEWS CHANNEL, the Israeli/JEWISH Lobby in the American Media/Government and the Neo Cons to start to beat the drums for war again. The only problem is this time the American public may see the threat, but doesn’t have the stomach for another Bush engineered Iraq-like Quagmire.
Also, due to the UNNECESSARY LIE BASED WAR IN IRAQ we now don’t have the troops to deal with a real threat like Iran. How do we remedy this situation? Perhaps we as a nation should ask the ALL KNOWING AND ALL SEEING INARTICULATE ONE i.e. Bush, but since he’s gotten it all wrong to this point why bother, but the answer is clear….BRING BACK THE DRAFT!!!!!


Yes, the only thing good that will come from this impending showdown in the Middle East will be that the GUTLESS and SPINELESS Frat boy YOUNG REPUBLICAN NEOCONS and those of Military Service age that support BUSH/GOP (i.e. read REDSTATE.ORG) will finally be forced to put their money where their mouth is as far as supporting Bush’s NEO CON AGENDA. They can finally do what Bush and Cheney didn’t have the BALLS to do in Vietnam that being to serve. There won’t be any deferments this time.


Have no Fear the American public, the Israeli/Jewish LOBBY, and BIG OIL are all behind ya. Also you can count on me and the rest of the REDSTATE FLAGWAVERS to be behind you 100%. We’ll show our support and SACRIFICE by putting a SUPPORT OUR TROOPS yellow ribbon bumper sticker on the back of the minivan and I’ll send a care package of Sardines and Beans to you from time to time to supplement those tasty MREs. Never doubt the country is behind you, however, don’t expect the Bush Twins to be there with ya as there’s beer to be drank and reefer to be smoked here at home..so…sorry.

Steven Spielberg says he’s willing to die for Israel, even though you’ll never see him or anyone he knows signing up to fight the NEO CON NOBLE CAUSE, he however is hoping that you the slack jawed and uninformed masses that make up the RED States will.

Better start brushing up on that conversational Arabic now.

"Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither" -- Benjamin Franklin

BUSH: MORE LIES AND HALF TRUTHS TO JUSTIFY BREAKING THE LAW

Don't believe any of the BS that this Administration and the WHORES that are beholding to it say, BUSH BROKE THE LAW! My friends and all those that know this REGIME for what it is, Question and Deride any and all things that this Administration and the GOP put forth. They have proven themselves to be INCOMPETENT LIARS and men of no HONOR or INTEGRITY. From here on out this is for the soul of America and Democracy. Democracy a concept and a word used by this thinly veiled Dictator and his Brown shirts to attack other countries and SHOVE their Corporate GREED DRIVEN agenda down the throats of the nation.

Post to Blogs Right and Left, Write your local Newspaper and take the battle to these EVIL and CORRUPT SONS OF BITCHES and their SYCOPHANTS. Give no quarter and accept no compromise for if they thought they could they would silence all dissent and setup a ONE PARTY THEOCRACY. Take a page from Karl Rove and his PINK CLAD LIGHT IN THE BOOTS BOOTLICK Mehlman and ATTACK.... ATTACK...ATTACK..!!!!!

George W. Bush's Overall Job Approval Rating Returns to Record Low as Americans Turn Less Optimistic About the National Economy

Ford to Cut 14 Plants And Up to 30,000 Jobs

DaimlerChrysler to Eliminate 6,000 Jobs


Well I guess that Bounce in POLLS Bush got from his “I’M A MORON AND SCREWED UP IN IRAQ TOUR” didn’t last all that long with the Red State base. Funny how all that Bible Banging and Flag Waving Crapola doesn’t hold that much weight or matter all that much when you can’t buy groceries, put gas in the SUV or pay the Mortgage.


It’s a pity they just passed that new Bankruptcy bill just as those bills are piling up and the paycheck is not gonna be coming that much longer. Have no fear your god fearing friends in the GOP will let you work it off in the DEBTORS PRISONS that they will soon be setting up under KING GEORGE.

If you work at FORD, GM, or CHRYSLER and got axed and voted GOP/BUSH you have no one to blame but yourself. Good luck trying to pay those bills with YOUR MORAL Values. Have no fear those tax cuts will be kicking in anytime now but until then good luck with that new job at Wal-Mart or MacDonald’s. Repeat after me “YOU WANT FRIES WITH THAT”??

TWO MORE DEAD IN WEST VIRGINIA COAL MINES

Bush Administration Reacts to Criticism on Mine Safety.


If you or anyone you know works in the COAL industry and you voted BUSH/GOP in the last election you have no one to blame,but yourselves for the increasing MINER DEATH TOLL. You voted for these Puppets of BIG BUSINESS and now pay the price.

As per the article with the election of BUSH/GOP, THE BUSH ADMIN./GOP PULLED OR SHELVED "Clinton-era initiatives examining safety equipment and mine rescue operations off its regulatory agenda. Those initiatives included ones dealing with oxygen packs that miners carry and the ability of mine rescue teams to do their jobs.

The Bush administration cited changing priorities and resource concerns in withdrawing the items. Miners' advocates say the action prevented the creation of important safety rules".

It must be a real RUSH everytime those guys go underground knowing that they are playing real life RUSSIAN ROULETTE. Maybe they can't even comprehend the danger as they "are" slackjawed REDSTATERs??

As THE RIGHT WING AGENDA would say :THANK YOU MR. PRESIDENT...THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!!!

George W. Bush and his GOP cohorts initiate the demise of the American Empire through DECEPTION and THUGGARY.

From the end of World War II until the beginning of the Bush administration, no matter who was the president, Republican or Democrat, most the world looked for American leadership to solve the world’s problems. This gave us a unique position to influence peoples of the world, in terms of culture, economics, politics, and military. This influence was the key that made us the greatest super power in history. Just as the end of WW II gave us the opportunity kick start our rise as a nation, September 11 gave us the opportunity to re-energize this thrust.

September 11th gave us an opportunity to enhance our influence with the peoples the Middle East, China and Cuba who shunned our leadership. These peoples were laying flowers at our embassies. Remember what a leading French newspaper wrote after 911 2001 “September 11th made us all Americans”

Unfortunately, the good will we experienced because of September 11th, was wasted by those who are in charge, the GOP leadership and our so-called independent media. The Republican Party and its leader George W. Bush instead of uniting the world in our cause alienated everyone, by doing what they know best, acting like the global Thug and deceiving everyone here at home.

Those who knew better, the leadership of the Democratic Party, went a long with it because they were afraid to loose more power. The media which is supposed to be the forth branch of government, providing our people with checks and balances, instead of acting like a watchdog, became Bush’s and The GOP’s lap dogs. Cheering these GOP bullies on, riding the tanks, gloating over the fall of the statue of Sadam. What a wonderful time it was for them, our deceived public kept watching and GE, FOX, Time Warner and Disney was making money!

Now Bush and his GOP cronies seem to realize that leadership by thuggery doesn’t work anymore, you get people pissed off, and people don’t like bullies. Countries like Iran will try to make nuclear weapons because they want to insure that these thugs don’t mug them, like they did their neighbor. Queen thug, Condoleeza Rice is now working with the U.N. to reign in Iran’s nuclear ambitions! But it is too late! The damage that these macho fools caused to our reputation is irreversible! The opportunity to re-energize our global ambitions is gone! No one trusts our intentions anymore, peoples of the world outside say Israel, are suspicious of our motives! The leadership that our media wanted and our citizens choose is one of the most hated administrations if not the most hated administration ever! When it comes to the peoples of the world, neither deception nor thuggary will work!

Deception and bulling may not work abroad, but at home they keep trying and if they win again in 2006 it will work again. Deceptions is being used in the Alito hearings, Bushes speeches, more tax cuts for the wealthy and more economic hardship for everyone else, a prescription drug law that only makes the drug companies rich and the beneficiaries worse off, drilling in Alaska that will give the Oil oligopoly more profits and our environment damaged for ever, destroying our civil liberties by spying on us and limiting our free speech, etc. etc…

The good news is that our loyal opposition, the Democratic Party seems to have woken up, the bad news is that GE, FOX, Time Warner and Disney, the owners of our media still act like lap dogs and not questioning deception and thuggary. I hope our media realizes that they too are getting a beating around the world, because their games is not to only make money in the US, but all over the world. Eleanor Roosevelt said” American people will always make the right choice, if their leaders give them the right information. – Let us hope our MAINSTREAM MEDIA, and the loyal opposition can convince enough Red State fools to reverse the course in 2006.

SENIORS DENIED RX DRUG BENEFITS UNDER BUSH'S PRESCRITPTION DRUG SCHEME


This latest screw up is brought to you by the same guys that brought you The FEMA response to Katrina and The NOBLE CAUSE that is Bush’s Iraq so is it any surprise that this thing that was shoved through congress over two years ago is so screwed up???

Well, to all you REDSTATE SENIORS that voted for Bush/GOP in the last election, you deserve what you get. As you and the Baby Boomer generation demand to have your cake and eat it too and leave future generations to pickup the tab. It’s good too see that the Me/Yuppie generation still holds true to it credo after all these years as they vote GOP and vote FOR massive DEFICITS i.e. “F*%) EVERYBODY AND THE COUNTRY AS LONG AS I GET MINE!!!”

But hey, Bush and the GOP would really like to help you out with the High Price of the drugs to keep that bad Ticker going, but the Drug Companies have gotta make their cash and those TAX CUTS have gotta go through for Bush’s RICH BASE…sorry. Maybe a non-government FAITH BASED Organization can help ya out in the short term, because the message being sent by the Bush Admin. Is “ YOU BETTER GIVE YOUR SOUL TO JESUS ‘ CAUSE YOUR SLACK JAWED GULLIBLE ASS IS ON IT’S OWN.

If you think this is bad, just be glad Americans were enlightened or just selfish enough not to support Bush’s SOCIAL SECURITY SCHEME.

BUSH SIGNS INTO LAW ANTI-FREE SPEECH LEGISLATION


Given that ALITO, this thinly veiled BUSH SHILL is about to put on his Robe, I thought this was pretty pertinent. What a great way for Bush to silence any and all “IRRESPONSIBLE CRITICISM” especially from those PESKY LEFT WING/ Liberal Blogs.

Rest assured that with a Pres. that seeks total imperial powers and with the powerful capabilities of the NSA at his disposal that he will do his best to silence the growing majority that see the Bush lie based Shell Game for what it is.

My friends these Evil and Corrupt Jackbooted Thugs i.e. the GOP must be stopped or within another decade or less, America will be a Democracy only in name. Democracy will be reduced to a sound byte or a slogan and the Constitution will be just another piece of paper with laws on it that carries no real weight in the world of THE GOP/BUSH.

It makes a REAL “FREE-THINKING” AMERICAN feel secure knowing that the Commander in Chief respects the Bill of Rights especially when used as Toilet Paper.

Bush urges critics be responsible on Iraq

Bush Urges Unity to Clear Hurdles in Iraq

Is this INARTICULATE YAHOO clown for real????

This guy has the GALL to claim that some War Critics are irresponsible!!!! This from the guy that had it all figured out and decided that we as a nation would go it alone in Iraq unilaterally. This from a know it all that wanted to hear no dissent while TENS OF Thousands of AMERICAN CITIZENS protested his Neo Con Preemptive strike policy before he marched us as a nation into this mess in Iraq.

So now the other half of the country is waking up after a Stupidity induced slumber and realizes that he and all his Neo Con Puppet Masters had it ALL WRONG!!! So as usual to silence any dissent to his FAILED AND MISGUIDED POLICIES he plays the “ YOUR EITHER WITH US OR AGAINST US” card. Hey that ROVIAN Scam/Scheme/SCHTICK worked for the first term and into some of this one, but not anymore. Not with the death toll rising and everything our fearless leader claimed was fact has turned out to be FALSE. The Rubes that got conned into voting for this clueless HEE HAW and his NEO CON Policy want results…that in the WORLD OF BUSH remain forever elusively just around the corner, kind of like those millions of HIGH PAYING Jobs he and the GOP promised if we gave tax cuts to the Rich. This need for results from his clueless and easily fooled base is understandable because they and their family members are doing the Lions Share of the fighting, dieing and alas will pay the BIG ASS bill that will come due for this Debacle when Bush is gone

The house of cards that is the GOP majority and the rubber stamp for BUSH'S Incompetent and Failed policies is in real jeopardy. He’s grasping at straws. What is the reason we’re over in Iraq this week???I say hold this lying War Monger accountable and all others BOTH GOP AND DEMOCRAT accountable for this MEGA SCREWUP.

SO, I say to you Joe Six-pack and Suzie RedState Housecoat….HAD ENOUGH YET?

AP POLL: BUSH POLL NUMBERS LOW, CONGRESSIONAL DEMS FAVORED

CROOKED AND SCANDAL RIDDEN DELAY OUT AS HOUSE LEADER..for good


200 people KILLED in two days, including 11 U.S. troops in BUSH'S "NOBLE IRAQ CAUSE"

Poll: Most Say U.S. Needs Warrant to Snoop


Poll: Public Uneasy With GOP Leadership

As I said before to those of you that were stupid enough to be DUPED and voted for the GOP and their Idiot in Chief, I hope you have enjoyed your day in the Sun because now as I write this it’s all downhill from here.

More bad news from the Noble Cause, The HAMMER GOT NAILED, GOP SUPER SLIMEBALL LOBBYIST, Jack Abramoff is ready to fold like a cheap suit and name names, most of which will be members of God’s party i.e. the GOP, Rove is still under investigation, Libby has been indicted and Bush covertly has been spying on his own people without LEGAL RIGHT….And on and on it goes, the incessant bad news that follows the GOP these days like a shadow.

Now we see that Bush supposedly wants input on Iraq when before he had all the answers. I think my grandfather’s favorite OLD saying applies “TOO MUCH, TOO LITTLE, TOO LATE”. Unfortunately for America and its troops we'll be dealing with the fallout of this BUSH ENGINEERED MESS for decades if not generations to come.

I gotta tell ya that me and the rest of the Insurgency is enjoying the Misery and Despair show that Bush and the GOP has brought upon itself. If these corrupt and incompetent YAHOOS truly have an in with JESUS now would be the time to ask for a favor. Cause things are gonna get worse ..REAL soon and the ’06 elections are right around the corner.
