When Pastors Attack: Huckabee takes aim at Romney

Huckabee knows a flip flopper when he sees one. Or as the N.H. Concord newspaper states, "a phony". A phony, flip flopper he is, and Huckabee couldn't resist.

From the Caucus,
Mr. Huckabee laid out a string of attacks on Mr. Romney’s past statements about his views on abortion rights, gun control, the Reagan administration, and his past as a hunter.

“You are not going to find moments on YouTube of me saying something different about the sanctity of life today than I said ten years ago, ten minutes ago, or fifty years ago,” Mr. Huckabee said, referring to footage of Mr. Romney declaring his support for abortion rights—a position he later changed. “You are not going to find something in YouTube where I said something completely different about gun ownership and the second amendment than I did last week, ten weeks ago, ten years go.”

“You are not going to hear me making up stuff about my biography. I don’t go around saying I was lifelong golfer because I once rode in a golf cart when I was eight years old,” Mr. Huckabee said.

Ouch! Former Pastor, Huckabee has a vicious bite. Watch out're next on the pastor's list. An eye for an eye. Duke it out with each other, are on the wrong side of change and progress.

VIDEO: Rudy's Dumba$$ Campaign: Open Mouth, Insert Foot..again

Rudy and his terrible crew will get US all killed. These folks never quit with their fear mongering, discriminatory, racist, Islamic fascist crap. Never. Once again, Rudy's worthless, despicable "friends" have raised concerns about his "Presidential" intentions.

Welcome, John Deady, the co-chair of state Veterans for Rudy and his penchant for babbling nonsense.
"He's got I believe the knowledge and the judgement to attack one of the most difficult problems in current history and that is the rise of the Muslims, and make no mistake about it, this hasn't happened for a thousand years. These people are very dedicated and they're also very very smart in their own way. We need to keep the feet to the fire and keep pressing these people until we defeat or chase them back to their caves or in other words get rid of them."

Rudy...Please do US all a favor. Take yourself and your corrupt friends and go hide in a CAVE. You embarrass US all...Consistently. These discriminatory WAR MONGERS DO NOT REPRESENT AMERICA. Only the Neo Conservative AGENDA!

Pakistan: Here comes "state of emergency II" Musharraf prepares for crackdown...again

It's all rolling downhill...again. As Pakistan attempts to cope with the death of her democratic hero, Benazir Bhutto, President Musharraf has sought another opportunity to subvert democracy. Here comes the TROOPS, again.

Here are a few excerpts from the BBC,
Mr Musharraf said looters "must be dealt with firmly and all measures be taken to ensure [the] safety and security of the people".
Troops have been deployed onto the streets to try to quell the violence that has broken out since Ms Bhutto's death.
Interior ministry spokesman Javed Iqbal Cheema said rioting across the country had destroyed 176 banks, 72 train cars and 18 railway stations, while at least 100 prisoners had been sprung from jails.
How can Mush, Bush, Brown, and Rudd believe that elections should still be held on Jan. 8th? Pakistan is in turmoil! Elections would be a COMPLETE FARCE on Democracy.
Nine election offices in Ms Bhutto's home province of Sindh were also reportedly burned to the ground.
A spokeswoman for her Pakistan People's Party accused the government of trying to minimise its responsibility for Ms Bhutto's safety, and said the official account was "dangerous nonsense".
and here comes the best, most pathetic part...
Brig Cheema also said Pakistan did not need the help of the international community in investigating the assassination.

And he again accused a Pakistani militant, Baitullah Mehsud, of ordering the killing.

The tribal leader from South Waziristan, who has close links to al-Qaeda, has denied the accusations through a spokesman.

But Brig Cheema said: "We have the evidence that he is involved. Why should he accept that he has done it? It does not suit him. I don't think anybody has the capability to carry out such suicide attacks except for those people."
They are ALL complicit. The "government" has failed the people of Pakistan. Her political future is in DOUBT. Democracy will not survive without the WILL of the people.

Last minute Shopping idea... War on Terror: The Board game

There's no need to fight with your relatives this Christmas. Instead of lambasting on your drunkard uncle, degrading your wretched sister in law, or duking it out with your bitter drug induced step brother...all can rejoice and take it out on others. Welcome, "War on Terror: The Board game"

Roast a terrorist, gorge yourself on a defenceless empire, plump up a coup, nestle up with a politician or spring a delightfully well wrapped IED - your choice. Play by our rules, or play by your rules, and hope they're the same as your neighbours' rules.

Christmas is that special time for falling out with family. But with the help of War on Terror the Boardgame it doesn't have to be that way. We suggest trying for 'World Peace' this Christmas instead. We put this special ending in the rules ages ago but in three years of testing, peace only broke out do your bit this year and make it a peaceful one. Although for all you warring nutters out there don't worry, being the peace envoy doesn't mean you can't have your murderous fun too: you can still be an aggressive war criminal at the same time.
It's got suicide bombers, political kidnaps and intercontinental war. It's got filthy propaganda, rampant paranoia and secret treaties and the Axis of Evil is a spinner in the middle of the board.
You can fight terrorism, you can fund terrorism, you can even be the terrorists. The only thing that matters is global domination - err, liberation.
Everyone starts with the best intentions. Then things start to get cramped. Then you notice your neighbour has more oil than you. Before long, war is waged, nukes are dropped, revolutions are fought and terrorists are doing your dirty work, before turning on you...
This is the War on Terror, the boardgame: A quality boardgame for 2 - 6 players, lovingly illustrated and politically correct (in a very literal sense). Playing it will bring out the nastiest, greediest, darkest, most paranoid aspects of your character. It's all great family fun.
Gotta Love it. Good Humored, Satirical fun the whole family can enjoy. Nature vs. Nurture? Which philosophy will you play by? Bush "cowboy diplomacy" or Richardson's "New Realism" of diplomacy? Just make sure you follow the rules.

Friday, December 14, 2007 the hands of "celebrity diplomacy". Clooney and Cheadle win 2007 Peace Summit Award. Department of State remains silent

It's BushCO follows their path of "cowboy diplomacy" in the Middle East in their quest for "blood oil", Genocide is occurring in the Sudan. Left with NO foreign policy "experts" due to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and the all encompassing "war on terror",the U.S. has been forced to go with "celebrity diplomacy" for Africa. From Madonna, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Don Cheadle, Oprah, et all, our African foreign policy is lacking in Washington, but thriving in Hollywood.

From Reuters,

Dec 13 - Hollywood stars George Clooney and Don Cheadle have received the 2007 Peace Summit Award for their efforts to bring peace to Darfur.

The actors were presented with the award by former Soviet President and Nobel Peace Prize winner Mikhail Gorbachev.

Clooney and Cheadle have both made trips to Darfur in the past two years and spoken with government leaders about the humanitarian crisis in the region.

As Clooney states,
"The Simple truth is that when it comes to the atrocities in Darfur. Those people are no better off now as then they were years ago. The murders continue, the rapes continue and some 2.5 million refugees have yet to go home...and when they write about this the question will be asked...Where was the rest of the world and the answer will just wasn't a priority. "I am the son of and journalist and I understand that Freedom of Speech doesn't give you the right to run into a crowed theater and yell "FIRE" unless of course there is one. And there is a FIRE."
Sadly enough, we are lucky we have Hollywood..otherwise we wouldn't have DIPLOMACY in Africa. We'd be left with Wolfowitz and his wild ideas about Africa. (we already saw what is "ideas" did to Iraq...should we allow him to be "planning" for Africa?).

Sad. The United States has been reduced to "celebrity diplomacy" and Sub "machine gun" contractors as our Foreign Policy throughout the world. Blood Oil..rules the day....all in the name of "national security".

Anyways..Good job, George. Good job, Don. Thanks for doing the Department of State's job. Someone has to.

Will Immigration, "undocumented" unemployment rates, and the Sub prime mess invevitalbly Lead the U.S. into a Recession?

"You can't turn a financial toad (into a prince) by kissing it or by securitizing it or by transferring its ownership to somebody else"
So Warren Buffet says the U.S. is nearing a recession if "jobless rates increase", eh. Guess what...they will. What most Americans and obviously the mainstream press, analysts, and all the Real Estate prognosticators fail to mention is how the "housing crunch" affects not only the "jobless rate", but also the immigration debate.

Let me be a little more clear. We all know that many "illegal immigrants" are concentrated in the construction industry. These people are NOT counted in our POLLS. Therefore the "jobless rates" are dramatically off kilter.

In many of the declining markets unemployment rates are misrepresented. These "illegals" are in the shadows. In short, the "jobless rate" has increased and will continue to as long as developers and investors begin to slow their projects. The "illegals" that are laid off will become UNEMPLOYED, but not COUNTED. Hence an increase in rates. Welcome to the RECESSION!

Here are a few excerpts of the article from Reuters,
Billionaire investor Warren Buffett said the United States could slip into a recession if the jobless rate increases, he told CNBC television on Tuesday.

"If unemployment picks up then we could be in for a recession," Buffett said.

The U.S. unemployment rate in October rose to the highest level since August 2006, and was steady at 4.7 percent in November.

Buffett said daily figures from his own outlets, which include a broad range of companies in sectors ranging from food to furniture, indicated the season was "looking soft."
asked about the subprime mess and the Financial industry "write downs", Buffet commented,
"You can't turn a financial toad (into a prince) by kissing it or by securitizing it or by transferring its ownership to somebody else"
The dollar is shot! Unemployment is up! The Fed is wildly lowering rates! Foreigners are realizing their power and purchasing many U.S. assets! Welcome to the impending recession.

Torture "based" Reality Show to debut in Dubai

“The show will have multinational appeal and will interest everyone, irrespective of nationality, age or gender,” said Anjum Fatima, one of the series’ creators.
My goodness. Reality TV "Dubai Style". Producers in Dubai are preparing the final stages of their new highly touted Reality TV show that "will pit individuals against each other in a competition that conveys the social nature of human beings." That's a unique way of saying , "we are going to torture these individuals with solitary confinement until they break."

Get a load of the details of the show courtesy Emirates Today,

“It’ll be a 24-hour continuous drama where six finalists will be locked in separate rooms with basic amenities.

As a test of their patience and their ability to survive without any social contact each will be required to live for as long as possible in their own cocoon and outlast the rest, ” said Fatima.

She said the test would prove difficult and interesting to watch, and added: “It’s a biological fact that human beings cannot survive in seclusion. Our need to interact with the rest of the world is not a matter of social choice, but a must for maintaining our sanity and day-to-day survival.

“Famous psychologists have established that human beings cannot survive for long when deprived of social contact, which makes this challenge more than just a matter of living on your own in a secluded room.” The series’s producers have already talked to three of the leading broadcast channels in the region and are planning to present the show in different languages.

and for the contestants...What do they get out of this?

A cash prize and a new car will be up for grabs for the winner


the prize money is anybody’s guess, but we are expecting it to be something close to Dh100,000.” Prizes will also be given to the runner-up and third placed entrant, with smaller rewards going to the other finalists of the show.

The Bush Administration and Mukasey will surely enjoy this 'show'. Are you kidding me? Torture based reality programming? Next up..."Who can be waterboarded the longest?" "American Tortured Idol", "Wheel of Misfortune" ,"The Real Survivor". For an emirate that is attempting to crack down on it's "human rights abuses" this isn't a good display to the international community. Ridiculous! Torture based reality programming.

Move over "lead"....ASBESTOS in toys TOO. CBS to launch "CSI style" investigation

Aaah...just in time for the Christmas toy rush. Welcome, 'Asbestos laced' toys to throw on the pile of injustice.

Asbestos has been found in a variety of consumer products, including one of this season's biggest-selling Christmas toys, according to the nation's largest asbestos victims organizations.

The CSI Fingerprint Examination Kit, two brands of children's play clay, powdered cleanser, roof sealers, duct tapes, window glazing, spackling paste and small appliances were among the products in which asbestos was found by at least two of three labs hired by the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization.

and of course it wasn't our 'government' who discovered was US..citizens.

The group, which was created in 2004 by asbestos victims and their families, spent more than $165,000 to have government-certified laboratories examine hundreds of consumer products over 18 months to determine whether asbestos was present.

It is unusual for a group of volunteers, many of whom have asbestos-caused diseases, to fund research that impacts public health.

"We had to. No one else was doing it," said Linda Reinstein, the group's co-founder and executive director. "This is information that consumers and Congress must have because asbestos is lethal and we naively believe that the government is protecting us, when it's not."

I'll give you one guess as to where the product in manufactured. No silly it's not Iceland. It's our number one trading partner, China, of course.

The product that is of greatest concerns to some public health experts is the fingerprint kit, which is a huge seller


The kit, made in China, is one of several items licensed by CBS after its popular "CSI" science-crime shows. This model has an extensive array of plastic tools, inks and three types of very fine powders -- white, black and glow-in-the-dark. The analysis done for the victim's organization found high levels of two types of asbestos in the white and the glow powder.

Ha. My goodness..everything is becoming 'toxic', but this time we're lucky. CBS is on the case. It appears they're launching their own 'CSI style' investigation into the matter on their own.

CBS Consumer Products responded quickly when told of the reported contamination.

"We've asked our licensee to immediately conduct an independent test in the U.S. for asbestos. If the toy is determined to be unsafe, then we will insist that the licensee remove it from the market," a statement from a CBS spokesman said.

The manufacturer and distributor -- Planet Toys in New York City -- said in an e-mail that it frequently inspects the plants in China that make the CSI toys.

"The kit has been tested and has met all safety standards requirements as set by toy safety agencies and legislation, including the Consumer Product Safety Commission," a spokeswoman said, but added, "The agencies don't require asbestos testing and therefore we have never been apprised of any unacceptable levels of asbestos.

"We respect anyone's right to test our products and should their or our future tests reveal anything unacceptable, we'll of course take swift action to remove contaminated products from the market."

Is their a politician out there who can save US? Greed seems to always win out ...depressing. Globalization is killing US all.
