IN VIOLATION OF FEDERAL LAW, OHIO'S 2004 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION RECORDS ARE DESTROYED OR MISSING
By Steven Rosenfeld, AlterNet

In 56 of Ohio's 88 counties, ballots and election records from 2004 have been "accidentally" destroyed, despite a federal order to preserve them -- it was crucial evidence which would have revealed whether the election was stolen.


BUSH FULFILLS HIS GRANDFATHER'S DREAM

By David Swanson

Prescott Bush was involved in a 1933 plot to overthrow the U.S. government and install a fascist dictatorship. Many have considered the possibility that the grandson is about to accomplish what his grandfather had failed to achieve.

You really should READ THIS to see the parallels between grandpa and grandson who were both losers, and great enemies of America the land of "common" persons.


One in eight Iraqis have left their homes in what is the largest long-term population movement in the Middle East since the displacement of the Palestinians in 1948

We can go on and on about this being "Bush's war", which it IS, but, as Americans, it is US who are ultimately responsible for seeing to it that the right thing gets DONE. It is not going to be easy, inexpensive, or quick. I think the numbers for the above linked story today are more like one in 7. THANK A REPUBLICAN TODAY.

that's crazy. In our inner cities, similar stories happen everyday. You hear so much about how people don't go outside in certain areas because they don't want to get involved.

Yea, and we could be DOING things about it here at home if all the money hadn't been FUCKING STOLEN!

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
