We're Baaaaaack....

Sorry for the absence (if anybody actually reads this). My wife started a new job, and I've been working so much overtime, I haven't had a chance to do anything else. And my laundry hamper is proof of that.

Anyway, to the news...

The Terri Schiavo Case

The Rethuglicans are trying yet another weasel0deal scam move in the Terri Schiavo case. Now they're trying to subpoena Terri (who's been vegetative for years) and her husband to testify before Congress.

Easiest way to make sure Terri can die with dignity? Let a rumor leak that if she recovers, she's going to vote Democratic. That'll be the end of that.

Drilling for Oil in ANWR

The Bushies are still trying to get permission for Halliburton, et al., to destroy the last vestige of pristine nature in the US. They're claiming that drilling in Alaska would generate $2.5 billion a year. Fortunately, a lot of Congress-critters want to see some proof this time.

Congress and the Smackdown

The Congress-critters finally found the nerve to smackdown the Campaignistration over cuts to Medicare, education, and social services. On the other hand, they increased the tax cuts for the wealthy. Why are we not surprised?

Texas Cheerleaders: Too Sexy?

Yeah, I know, Texas and sexy are two thoughts that don't belong in the same sentence. Some neocon wingnut is trying to get the legislature to ban "overly-sexual" cheerleading routines. This jerk says that fathers and boyfriends will be pleased. Yeah. Right.


The neocon wingnuts are doing their very best to bring about their Utopia: an 8th-century Christian theocracy. Unfortunately, they seem to be succeeding: a little erosion of freedom here, a little abrogation of civil rights there... pretty soon, the Texas Taliban will have it all.

Once again, it is time for true-blue Americans to stand up against the Red Menace. But this time, we're not talking China or the USSR, we're talking the red-state thugs in white sheets and hoods, the Bible-thumpin, hooker-humpin, sister-marryin, rifle-rack-in-the-pick-em-up crowd.
