Bush is trying to fuck Americans (all of us, one last time) before he leaves. Republican voters: NOW do you realize Bush hated you and fucked you, too? And isn't a conservative? We've been trying to tell you that!!! You are "useless eaters" to him and his cronies. Bush's presidency was the crime of the century and he single-handedly ruined America. He funnelled all our money to his friends and family. Bush hates America, and his family is a crime family. And he screwed YOU, too, Republican voters!!! We had: 9/11, the current financial 9/11, torture, trashing the constitution, signing statements, trashing the environment in favor of corporations, lying us into the Iraq War, spying on Americans (still going on), 50 million Americans not covered by health care, privatizing public domain, skyrocketting gas and oil for most of his presidency, Cheney's secret energy meetings with the heads of Big Oil, the Department of Justice scandals, stolen elections, voter suppression, highest deficits of all time (everything: the budget, trade deficits, etc...) after having a SURPLUS handed to him by a Democratic president, astronomical amount of Republican scandals during his 8 years, fake terror alerts (admitted to by Ridge), record foreclosures, worst economy since the Great Depression, outed a CIA agent, record number of Americans on food stamps, record high unemployment, bigger gap between the richest few and the rest of America....I can go on and on and on...He gave us Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowicz, Richard Perle, Andrew Card, John Ashcroft, Alberto Gonzales, Monica Goodling, Jack Abramoff, Scooter Libby, ...he corrupted all the agencies and departments that are supposed to serve us by installing inept cronies...HE DID NOTHING GOOD FOR AMERICA!!!!!!! HE WAS A DISGRACE TO US AND THE WORLD!!!!!!! HE WAS THE WORST PRESIDENT EVER, AND DID MORE TO SINGLE-HANDEDLY TAKE DOWN AMERICA THAN ANY ONE IN HISTORY!!!!!!! And he ruined the Republican Party...

The Second Biggest Coincidence Of the Century: Financial 9/11 hits during Bush's final days in office (the first coincidence of the century was that the Bush administration already had plans drawn up to invade Iraq before 9/11 and needed an excuse to expedite it - 9/11; how many Bush coincidences are you going to believe?)

Jim Bianco of Bianco Research crunched the inflation adjusted numbers. The bailout has cost more than all of these big budget government expenditures – combined:

• Marshall Plan: Cost: $12.7 billion, Inflation Adjusted Cost: $115.3 billion
• Louisiana Purchase: Cost: $15 million, Inflation Adjusted Cost: $217 billion
• Race to the Moon: Cost: $36.4 billion, Inflation Adjusted Cost: $237 billion
• S&L Crisis: Cost: $153 billion, Inflation Adjusted Cost: $256 billion
• Korean War: Cost: $54 billion, Inflation Adjusted Cost: $454 billion
• The New Deal: Cost: $32 billion (Est), Inflation Adjusted Cost: $500 billion (Est)
• Invasion of Iraq: Cost: $551b, Inflation Adjusted Cost: $597 billion
• Vietnam War: Cost: $111 billion, Inflation Adjusted Cost: $698 billion
• NASA: Cost: $416.7 billion, Inflation Adjusted Cost: $851.2 billion

TOTAL: $3.92 trillion

Dear Mr. Dingell:
This letter seeks your urgent intervention because serious misconduct by managers of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) at the Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) is interfering with our responsibility to ensure the safety and effectiveness of medical devices for the American public and with FDA's mission to protect and promote the health of all Americans. Managers at CDRH have failed to follow the laws, rules, regulations and Agency Guidance to ensure the safety and effectiveness of medical devices and consequently, they have corrupted the
scientific review of medical devices. This misconduct reaches the highest levels of CDRH management including the Center Director and Director of the Office of DevIce Evaluation (ODE). (read actual letter - click here)

If you only read corporate-controlled news and you never suspect our own government of being behind these "terror plots", then you deserve what happens: our government taking away your liberties and your money time after time after time...periodically doing a "terror plot" or a 9/11 or a financial 9/11 that's going on right now, with Bush & company looting your money in the treasury. If you believe 19 hijackers outfoxed the U.S. with boxcutters, you deserve everything you're getting. They will keep doing these "terror alerts" (it's THEM!) and false flag operations to scare you into thinking it's "the terrorists". That was the plan all along. Wake up! You need to get beyond the point where you can't believe your own government would do that to you. Why exactly wouldn't you think our government could do that? You see what's going on, they're stealing all your money right now in front of your face! If you believe that we "happened" to have the biggest financial crisis in history...right when Bush is leaving office, then YOU are an IDIOT! If you believe that 2 jets hit 2 skyscrapers and 3 skyscrapers pulverized into dust, and a jet in Pennsylvania hit the ground and vaporized, then you need to read something other than the corporate-controlled media. That was the one and only time in history skyscrapers fell into dust, the only 3 in history. No plane hit WTC-7, a 47 story building, and it fell in 6 seconds into dust. So, FIRE (not a plane) knocked down a 47 story building? Then ALL skyscrapers can fall into pulverized dust due to fire in 6 seconds! You better be scared! Not of "Al Qaeda", but of your own government doing this! Wake up!

Look: I'm actually getting sick of posting 9/11 stuff and pointing out the bullshit scare articles by our government and media like the one below...check out my 9/11 links on the right and start reading!!! And stop believing everything you read from the corporate-controlled newspapers and corporate-controlled TV channels! If anything happens in the NYC Subways during the holidays, it's our own government doing it! READ!!!!! OR THERE'S NO HOPE FOR YOU!!!!

Maybe you're afraid to find out the truth. If your government was behind the terrorism they're blaming on others, would you want to know it? Read the 9/11 links on the right of my blog. Our government wants you to keep your eye on their FAKE terrorists, while the REAL terrorists are looting all the money in our treasury!!!

Here's another government scare story...OUR government trying to scare us. Read this BULLSHIT! "a person"..."anonymous source"..."no details"..."no indication"...etc...etc...IT'S OUR GOVERNMENT TRYING TO SCARE YOU! WHAT KIND OF A BULLSHIT ARTICLE IS THIS???

Congress is running out of time to finally make the Bush administration own up to its actions for eight years. If Congress isn’t careful, the president who already has issued 171 pardons could also pardon every appointee and employee he has ever had – and their dogs.

Candidate to Head RNC Connected To Whites-Only Country Club (of course)

The website Talking Points Memo reports a candidate to become chair of the Republican National Committee was a longtime member of a white-only country club in South Carolina. Katon Dawson announced his candidacy for the RNC chair on Sunday. He is currently the South Carolina Republican chair. For 12 years Dawson was a member of the Forest Lake Club. He resigned from the club in September after local media reports revealed that the country club’s deed had a whites-only restriction. The news come as the Republican party struggles to attract African-American supporters. At this year’s Republican National Convention only 36 of the nearly 2,400 delegates were black, the lowest number in 40 years.

This "suicide bomber" was a woman, says a "witness" who was close enough to identify her but wasn't hurt at all, even though 20+ people were blown up??? When there's an explosion, all you see is a huge flash, there is NO WAY to determine where it stemmed from, let alone a woman. Was this guy watching this woman with binoculars or something? NO!!! If this was in the Green Zone, where's the video of it? They have cameras rolling all over the place in the Green Zone! Also, the story tries to drive home the point that we shouldn't leave Iraq because of this. That's not news, that's propaganda!

Locking in the Loot at the Reagan Library. Paulson's Cascade of Lies

It took the repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act, legislation crafted after the 1929 crash barring commercial banks from merging with their casino cousins (investment banks and brokerage firms) to bring Citigroup to life.

Naked Citi. The Rise and Fall of Citigroup


While Citibank is getting bailed out by the taxpayers, Citibank was busy sending the taxpayers a "new rule" to jack their interest rates up to 29%:

All of your APRs may increase if you default under the Card Agreeement that you have with us because you fail to make a payment to us when due (even though we may have waived the late fee), you exceed your credit line, or you make a payment to us that is not honored. In these circumstances, we may automatically increase your APRs (including any promotional APRs) on all balances to the Default APR, which equals the Prime Rate plus up to 23.99% or up to 29.00%, whichever is greater.

Citibank thanks America for filling its begging bowl with a royal one finger salute. And Congress snores when it should regulate interest rates.

So until real relief is forthcoming, citizens who are in distress should simply destroy their credit cards and stop paying the monthly bills. People are already doing this. Arrearages and defaults are climbing, and credit card debt is starting to be viewed as the next bubble to burst. But so what? If people have to use a credit card, that means they can’t really afford to buy whatever it is they think they want. If they can afford it, they should use a debit card instead.

Then tell the credit card company you cannot pay. Ask them to write off some or all of the debt, and if they want to take you to court, go on your own and defend yourself. You don’t need a lawyer, and you don’t need anyone’s permission. You also don’t need to go through the horrendous “reformed” bankruptcy system the credit card companies got Congress to pass in 2005. Failure to pay credit card debt is not, thank God, a crime in this country, and there are no debtors’ prisons—yet.

Bush's Wars will go on long after Bush leaves office...

The whole rationale for our war in Afghanistan probably would be exposed to the world as the farce that it is if the Bush administration allowed its “War on Terror” prisoners to use the writ of habeas corpus to challenge their detentions. That appears to be a major reason, if not the major reason, why the Bush administration has for several years fought tooth and nail to deny its prisoners the habeas corpus rights that are guaranteed under our Constitution. And it is also probably a major reason why whenever our courts have over-ruled the Bush administration in specific cases, Bush has released the respective prisoners rather than allow them a fair and open trial.

Why Bush Can’t Allow Habeas Corpus – And Why we Need to Leave Afghanistan

The Iraq War is a testament to the great damage a foreign policy based on myths, lies and distortions can do to our nation's security and well-being. As the election draws near, a new set of myths and fallacies as misleading as those that led the Senate to support George W. Bush's invasion of Iraq have become embedded in our foreign policy discourse. Many of them are being perpetuated by the very same political forces that peddled the myth of mushroom clouds coming from Saddam Hussein's Iraq. Others are the product of muddled thinking on the part of both Republicans and Democrats. If left unchallenged, these myths and fallacies could influence the outcome of the election and shape policy in the next administration. In this special feature, put together by Nation editors with Sherle Schwenninger, a frequent Nation contributor and director of the Global Economic Policy Program at the New America Foundation, we dissect ten of them and offer what we believe is a more accurate depiction of what is at stake for the United States and the world.

TomDispatch Associate Editor Nick Turse, has the lead piece at the Nation magazine this week and it's a sobering walk down memory lane. "A My Lai a Month" is an exposé of American war crimes and the slaughter of thousands of civilians in Vietnam's Mekong Delta in the late 1960s, events about which, until Turse uncovered them almost 40 years later, little was known and less reported. Kudos to the Nation for publishing the piece. It's hard to read it and not wonder what the Nick Turses of 2048 will be writing about our present wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Want some reasons that the Republicans are becoming a fringe party? Look at what they stand for: year's end 1999, there were 706,600 Texans in prison, jail, parole or probation on any given day. In a state with 14 million adults, this meant that 5% of adult Texans, or 1 out of every 20, are under some form of criminal justice supervision. The scale of what is happening in Texas is so huge, it is difficult to contrast the size of its criminal justice systems to the other states' systems it dwarfs.

'Corporate Prisons': the GOP's Formula for More Crime, Declining Education, and Slave Labor

The GOP has dominated American economic policy since 1980 and with the exception of a brief period in Clinton's second term, the rich have gotten exceedingly richer and the poor, much, much poorer. This gaping, growing inequality married to Bush's 'bailout', a failed example of corporate welfare and outright theft, has proven Karl Marx to have been absolutely correct.
