And witches float

All of you out there that voted for W in 2000 and/or 2004 should be charged with aiding and abetting the murder of science and reason. During his 2000 campaign W said his favorite philosopher was Jesus Christ. This was also around the time as Governor of Texas he signed a proclamation declaring June 10, 2000 "Jesus Day" in Texas. Gee. I wonder how Christ would have voted on the Bankruptcy bill, elimination of the estate tax for people like Paris Hilton or the Energy bill which gives billions of dollars in tax break freebies to the most profitable companies on the planet. You see at $62.00 a barrel Exxon needs your tax dollars to get it through these "lean" times until oil hits $80.00 a barrel. Amen. Praise the Lord and pass the tax breaks!

Early in his Presidency, on August 9, 2001, when he should have been dealing with the August 6, 2001 warning memo entitled "Bin Ladin Determined to Strike in the US" , W was delivering what I'm sure he considered wise Solomon-like remarks banning further use of federal funds for stem cell research. (Please note the Presidential Daily Brief warning memo is in present tense as in "The Curmudgeon determined to spread crankiness in US." It's an ongoing and present danger not some historical document describing a past threat that no longer exists as Condi baby told the 9/11 commission.) Interesting how it's not moral to sacrifice some life to save others unless you unilaterally invade a Middle Eastern country. Then it's the highest calling to sacrifice your life (well not really your life - other people's kids' lives) so that the Iraqi people can simply change the maniacs in charge. You say Sunni - I say Shiite, let's call the whole thing off.

Look, I don't care who, what, where, when, why or how you may or may not worship whomever or whatever you choose. The Curmudgeon is not without religion. I've prayed before. Most of the time it's before the river card is turned over or before I open my wife's Visa bill. But the point is, if you want to pray 24 hours a day go right ahead in your home or your church or mosque or foxhole. But not in school. So here is Exhibit A in your trial for conspiracy to murder science and reason. President Bush said Monday, Aug. 1, 2005, that he believes schools should discuss "intelligent design" alongside evolution when teaching students about the creation of life. "I think that part of education is to expose people to different schools of thought," Bush said. "You're asking me whether or not people ought to be exposed to different ideas, the answer is yes." Different ideas like creationism a.k.a intelligent design and flat earth. Even Bible study classes in Texas teaching that the earth stopped twice in its orbit, in support of the literal truth of the biblical text that the sun stood still in Joshua and II Kings. Just not ideas like science and reason. Those are blasphemy. Verdict: Guilty.

BONUS POSTING: Jeanine Pirro, Republican Westchester County DA and possible gubenatorial candidate has a driver on pace to earn $248,000 this year making him the highest paid public employee of that county. His taxpayer salary is $101,460 and has earned $87,430 in overtime so far this year. Wow. Being a Republican chauffeur pays a lot better than a cranky blogger.

"My first thought was: he lies in every word"

-Robt. Browning-

A brilliant (but completely anonymous) Philosopher once said that the ship of faith floats on a sea of denial. He isn't expressing what he believes so much as he's denying the demonstrable in favor of the impossible. While it's too stupid to be sophistry, Bush's lame excuse for teaching mythology as an alternate form of science is no worse a lie than everything else he tells us. All his lies in fact are so stupid that it's insulting to think that he thinks we don't notice. I notice.

GOOD NEWS-BAD NEWS
The good news: There is a 10th planet.
The bad news: Humans have found it.
(Mars and the Moon have already been invaded.)

The good news: There is ice-water on Mars.
The bad news: It will probably melt before NASA ever uses any of it.

The good news: George W. Bush's physical shows that he is in perfect health.
The bad news: He is president of the United States.

The good news: Columnist Robert Novak broke his silence on his disclosure that Valerie Plame was a CIA operative.
The bad news: He is still a creep.

The good news: I don’t have any more GOOD NEWS-BAD NEWS.
The bad news: There will be more GOOD NEWS-BAD NEWS another day.

QUACK, QUACK
Is Bill Frist the first ranking Republican(Senate Majority leader) to turn tail and oppose Dubya?
Frist now supports stem cell research that uses embryos.
Frist is one of the first Republicans to make a salvo to gear up for the 2008 election.
Politicians change positions in order to gain popularity or to side with a popular view.
Frist is no different.
More and more Bush is becoming a lame duck.

GLOBAL WARMING
Our big brains will have to boil, bubble and burst before we admit that there is a problem:
Global Warming is real!
It is happening before our eyes!
The temperatures are rising!
The oceans are warming!
The glaciers and ice caps are melting!
The Day After Tomorrow is today.
Although in the movie the temperatures dropped, in the real world they did not.
China does not believe that it needs to worry about CO2 emissions.
Neither does Bush & Co.
Tomorrow is another day, but I bet it will be a hotter one than today.
Put away your mittens and buy tons of sunblock.

KARL ROVER & DICK CHICANERY
The top secret document was helplessly floating in mid-air when multiple reporters simultaneously grabbed the document before it hit the floor, and the reporters then pondered whether to inform the White House (Karl Rover, Dick Chicanery & Others), who already were aware that the document could bring vengeance upon Joseph Wilson for his revelation of the truth about the Niger-Iraq Uranium falsehood…if only these reporters could think of something...Ah, yes...tell the world that Joseph Wilson's wife worked for the CIA...CALL Robert Novak (everybody trusts his word) and have him write a story about Mr. Wilson's CIA spouse.
Gee, did we think of this on our own or did the White House tell us?
Then confuse and contort, disassociate and discombobulate, throw curve balls and dirt balls...say this and that, then say that and this...whirling dervishes! Wolves in sheep's clothing!
(The American public could be fooled once again!)
Then hope that the independent prosecutor will heed some subtle warnings and promises to let the White House have their evil ways again.
(But let George cover our butts if anyone gets in big trouble, because Dubya always gets his way when he lies about anything.)
Time for some pretzels!

INNOCENT CIVILIANS
9,250.
This number is 37% of 25,000.
25,000 is the number of women, men and children who have been killed in the U.S. war in Iraq.
9,250 innocent civilians have been killed by the U. S.-led coalition, according to the Iraq Body Count and Oxford Research Group, a U.K.-based group of academics and peace activists.
Their Dossier on Civilian Casualties in Iraq 2003-2005 reported that 37% of all non-combatant deaths were caused by the U.S.-led coalition.
But according to a project done by the Center for International Emergency, Disaster and Refugee Studies at the John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in Baltimore, Columbia University and the Al-Mustansriya University College in Baghdad, the number of civilians who have been killed is much higher.
100,000.

NATIONAL SHIELD LAW

George W. Bush and the Justice Department do not want a National Shield Law.
Liars want to hide all of their secrets.
To allow the national media to continue to have anonymous sources would be a threat to this bellicose and duplicitous administration.
Bush used Executive Privilege to rescind the 1978 Presidential Records Act.
His own private records, and those of his father, are going to remain secret in perpetuity.
Dictators can’t permit the citizenry to know what they are doing, planning to do or have done.
