Freakin assgaybots

Yeah, this is about Hollywood at it's best. Fucking assgaybots they all are.

All bets are on the gay cowboy romance "Brokeback Mountain" galloping to victory at the Oscars, betting odds showed, as the film romps into next week's show armed with a leading eight nominations.

Taiwan-born director Ang Lee's aching story of forbidden love is the clear favourite to win the best picture Oscar four weeks after it first left its competition in the dust when the Academy Awards nods were unveiled.

The movie mongers out in Tinsel Town have nothing better to to than bash cowboys. This can't have anything to do with Bush being perceived as a cowboy now can it?

BUSH is a REAL MAN. Unlike most of your (gaybot)men.
And another NEWSFLASH:
Real women aren't falling for this bullshit. It's just for you folks- you're all a bunch of self fondling, feminist loving freaks.

Draft Dodger Memorial???

Canadians are just as bad as the French.

Peace activists have revived plans for a sculpture to commemorate Vietnam War draft resisters who fled to Canada, a proposal that had drawn the ire of U.S. veterans groups and conservatives.

The activists, who are also organizing a reunion for "draft dodgers" in July, said Tuesday the proposed monument is still needed to warn Americans and Canadians about the dangers of militarism.

"It is very important educationally that we have specific peace monuments," said Isaac Romano, an American who immigrated to Canada and now lives in British Columbia's Kootenay region where many U.S. war resisters settled.

The plan for a monument in Nelson, British Columbia, was originally announced in 2004, but quickly dropped after it was denounced by the U.S. Veterans of Foreign Wars and conservative media commentators.

Nelson city officials withdrew support for the sculpture to avoid a threatened U.S. boycott of the area's important tourism industry.

Romano said the activists have not decided on a location for the planned sculpture, and welcomed proposals from both Canadian and U.S. communities.

"It could be that there is a group in the States that sees it as an opportunity to remind Americans that they are not locked into the militarism. That there is an escape valve," Romano said.

The proposal calls for a sculpture of two Americans, a male and a female, crossing an imaginary border where a Canadian figure is waiting to welcome them.

Leave it to the Marines

Leave It To the Marines.....

As President Bush gets off the helicopter in front of the White House, he is carrying a baby pig under each arm. The squared away Marine guard snaps to attention, salutes, and says: "Nice pigs, sir."

The President replies: "These are not pigs, these are authentic Texan Razorback Hogs... I got one for Senator Ted Kennedy, and I got one for Senator John Kerry."

The squared away Marine again snaps to attention, salutes, and says, "Nice trade, sir."

Count The F's

Alzheimer's Test

Count the "F's" in the following red text:



How many ? 3?

Wrong, there are 6 !!--no joke.

Read it again.

The reasoning behind it is further down.

The brain cannot process "OF".
Incredible or what ? Go back and look again!!
Anyone who counts all 6 "F's" on the first go is a genius.
Three is normal, four is quite rare.

Robin Williams' Plan

Even if he's nuts! Leave it to Robin Williams to come up with the perfect
plan. What we need now is for our UN Ambassador to stand up and repeat this message.

Robin Williams' plan...(Hard to argue with this logic!)

"I see a lot of people yelling for peace but I have not heard of a plan for
peace. So, here's one plan."

1) "The US will apologize to the world for our "interference" in their affairs, past & present. You know, Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Tojo, Noriega, Milosevic, Hussein, and the rest of those "good 'ole' boys", we will never "interfere" again.

2) We will withdraw our troops from all over the world, starting with Germany, South Korea, the Middle East, and the Philippines. They don't want us there. We would station troops at our borders. No one allowed sneaking through holes in the fence.

3) All illegal aliens have 90 days to get their affairs together and leave. We'll give them a free trip home. After 90 days the remainder will be gathered up and deported immediately, regardless of whom or where they are. They're illegal!!! France will welcome them.

4) All future visitors will be thoroughly checked and limited to 90 days unless given a special permit!!!! No one from a terrorist nation will be allowed in. If you don't like it there, change it yourself and don't hide here. Asylum would never be available to anyone. We don't need any more cab drivers or 7-11 cashiers.

5) No foreign "students" over age 21. The older ones are the bombers. If they don't attend classes, they get a "D" and it's back home baby.

6) The US will make a strong effort to become self-sufficient energy wise. This will include developing nonpolluting sources of energy but will require a temporary drilling of oil in the Alaskan wilderness. The caribou will have to cope for a while .

7) Offer Saudi Arabia and other oil producing countries $10 a barrel for their oil. If they don't like it, we go someplace else. They can go somewhere else to sell their production. (About a week of the wells filling up the storage sites would be enough.)

8) If there is a famine or other natural catastrophe in the world, we will not "interfere." They can pray to Allah or whomever, for seeds, rain, cement or whatever they need. Besides most of what we give them is stolen or given to the army. The people who need it most get very little, if anything.

9) Ship the UN Headquarters to an isolated island someplace. We don't need the spies and fair weather friends here. Besides, the building would make a good homeless shelter or lockup for illegal aliens.

10) All Americans must go to charm and beauty school. That way, no one can call us "Ugly Americans" any longer. The Language we speak is ENGLISH...learn it...or LEAVE...Now, isn't that a winner of a plan?

"The Statue of Liberty is no longer saying "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses." She's got a baseball bat and she's yelling, 'you want a piece of me?' "

Carter Jr???

It's CARTER Junyah!


Democrat Jack Carter, the son of the former president, kicked off his U.S. Senate campaign Monday by calling for a return to "our American values."

Carter, a 58-year-old investment consultant in Las Vegas, is challenging incumbent Republican Sen. John Ensign (news, bio, voting record) in his first bid for elected office.

"The singular difference between the junior senator and me is he works for the Bush administration and I want to work for Nevada," Carter said at a union hall outside Las Vegas, accompanied by his parents, former President Carter and first lady Rosalynn Carter.

"Common sense, honesty, integrity and a desire for good government. These are our American values," he said.

The Lady Sings The Blues

And the fat lady sings.

She's suing Southwest Airlines cause they made her feel bad. BOO HOO. What a dipshit. She uses her race though and not her size.

Concord – Because of a security equipment breakdown at the airport, Nadine Thompson missed her Southwest Airlines flight to a Chicago business conference. A customer service worker found another way for her to get there, but she needed to board quickly.

She noticed another employee at the desk was looking at her, it seemed to her with contempt, but that person didn’t address her. She hurried to her gate at Manchester Airport, Thompson testified in federal court yesterday.

When she got on the plane, Thompson noticed that most of the seats were taken. She took an aisle seat in the back, buckling her seatbelt and putting down the armrest. An employee, a man, came on the plane and asked her to meet him on the jetway. She did so, thinking that either Southwest had a better flight for her or there was some emergency involving her family. Instead, she testified, she was told she needed to buy a second seat for her comfort and safety.

This is the PC way of saying- she was too big to fit in a single seat.

She said she asked the man several times to explain why she needed to buy the second seat; he kept saying it was for her comfort and safety. She told the worker she was going to return to her seat and do nothing unless he could give her a reason to buy a second one.

As she headed back in, she recalled hearing about a Southwest policy applying to obese passengers. “I thought, ‘There’s no way they could be talking about me,’” Thompson testified about the June 2003 incident. A frequent flier on Southwest, she had never been approached about buying a second seat.

Well LADY, YEAH they were talking about YOU. Face it...accept it...move on...lose some weight...whaTevah.

Thompson, who according to court records is 5-foot-8 and weighed between 300 and 330 pounds at the time, was approached by the worker again. He said, “‘If you get off the flight right now, I’ll refund you your ticket,’” she testified.

“I was kind of startled,” she said. “‘Why are you harassing me like this?’” The man didn’t say anything and walked off the plane, she said.

By now, Thompson said, she was feeling agitated and scared. “It was clear to me that this wasn’t over. Something else was going to happen.”

Waaahhhh. Boo hoo. Harassing? SHE doesn't know the meaning. Let me show her. LOL.

When Thompson kept demanding an explanation, asking if she was being targeted because she’s black, a woman or fat, another worker started telling her to keep her voice down, she testified. This worker behaved like a bully, very confrontational and aggressive, Thompson said, and she decided to stand up to him, admitting that she used profanity.

She asked the workers for their names; the one she had been arguing with said they didn’t have to give names. “I said, ‘Only racist cowards don’t give me their names,’” Thompson testified. “‘You might as well have a sheet over your head.’”

Eventually, she went back to the Southwest counter and was given a refund. The deputies were with her; she eventually started to weep and one assisted her, helping her get on a United Airlines flight. She was charged for one seat.

Thompson said she later called Southwest’s corporate office in Texas. A customer service representative apologized for what happened, said the employees didn’t follow procedures and offered her $350 in gift certificates.

The incident left her humiliated, Thompson said, and she has been seeing a psychologist to deal with her feelings.

Oh my. ROTF. She needed help to deal with her feelings? For the luv of shit.
Get a grip. Join a gym and get on a diet then deal.

Global Freezing

Oh no....It's Global Freezing.

I'm not a scientist, but I am aware of how scientific methods work and all these studies about GLOBAL WARMING are just not proven fact. They're theory.

Not everyone things we're in for the ultimate meltdown. Some say different:

ST. PETERSBURG, Russia, Feb. 7 (UPI)
-- A Russian astronomer has predicted that Earth will experience a "mini Ice Age" in the middle of this century, caused by low solar activity.

Khabibullo Abdusamatov of the Pulkovo Astronomic Observatory in St. Petersburg said Monday that temperatures will begin falling six or seven years from now, when global warming caused by increased solar activity in the 20th century reaches its peak, RIA Novosti reported.

The coldest period will occur 15 to 20 years after a major solar output decline between 2035 and 2045, Abdusamatov said.

Dramatic changes in the earth's surface temperatures are an ordinary phenomenon, not an anomaly, he said, and result from variations in the sun's energy output and ultraviolet radiation.

The Northern Hemisphere's most recent cool-down period occurred between 1645 and 1705. The resulting period, known as the Little Ice Age, left canals in the Netherlands frozen solid and forced people in Greenland to abandon their houses to glaciers, the scientist said.

John Kerry Sightings

So what's the good Senator from MA been up to lately? Not that anyone cares, but it's a good idea to keep an eye on him so we remember just what a flop he is.

In today's Boston Globe:

WASHINGTON -- John F. Kerry's decision to lead last week's unsuccessful filibuster of Samuel A. Alito Jr.'s Supreme Court nomination met with predictable ridicule from Republicans and some Democrats, but it could end up being his smartest political move in a long time.

The gratitude of liberal activists who hate Alito will be helpful if Kerry runs for president again. His willingness to pick up the flag and fight when no one except Edward M. Kennedy was willing to join him may impress those who think Kerry is a flip-flopper who has never exerted leadership in the Senate. And even the ridicule may be useful, in the sense that voters need to purge their frustration with Kerry before reconsidering him.

Kerry had joined the KosKids- he belongs to that far left wing of the Democratic party. I say it's a good place for him too...Not all Democrats relate to Kos and his gang of immature sidekicks...by keeping company with them Kerry may very well of sealed his own fate.

Other (non)newsworthy Kerry sightings lately:
He writes an Op/Ed -claiming to be a champion of troop support:

A Real Way to Honor America's Troops

By John Kerry and Lane Evans

For America's veterans, 2005 was like the movie "Groundhog Day." Day after day in Congress we have had to fight for the health care and benefits that our veterans have earned, but after every minor victory we seemingly have to fight the battle again the next day against the forces of resistance.

The year began with a shockingly irresponsible budget sent to Congress. Incredibly, the Administration sought a flat-lined budget full of proposals that would have increased fees and co- payments and shifted the burden of care onto the backs of veterans -- in spite of Department of Veterans Affairs statements in the past that a 13 to 14 percent increase in federal funding is needed annually just to keep up with the rising cost of health care. It only got worse. After months of repeated warnings by Democrats and veterans' advocates that the VA faced a dangerous funding shortfall, the VA during the summer finally acknowledged that these warnings were accurate and that it lacked the funds to adequately meet the health care needs of our veterans. In fact, the VA was over $1 billion short for the year and the Bush administration only reluctantly, under intense political pressure, agreed to request additional funding to provide the resources needed for basic veterans' health care.

Far be it for me to say, but Kerry is the LAST person who should claim any support for the American military. This is the same man who pretended to be a war hero; who h as never fully released his military records (what is he afraid of, what's he hiding??); this is the Senator who has consitently voted against increases in military equipment and funding for missle systems.

This is the same Senator who made the following statements in an interview with Esquire Magazine:

Unfit for Command was a pack of lies. I said so at the time. My crew said so. The Navy said so. But a lot of money was put behind the lies. If a lot of money is put behind a lie, it will become the truth for some people — particularly if they don't get enough of the real truth. I take the blame for not making certain that there was money behind the real truth. That's what I meant when I said I should've come back and coldcocked him.


One word I'd like on my tombstone to describe myself for generations to come? President would be a good one.

What a guy huh?

Illegal Immigration Is Everyone's Problem

Illegal immigration is America's problem, not just the states directly being invaded. While the southern border states are being most abused by the illegals, other places and regions feel the effects. It shouldn't matter who is demanding a change with policy.

ST. PAUL -- Governor Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota is descended from Polish immigrants and has been known to throw around pretend-Polish words like "squatski." (As in: What has the Legislature accomplished?) But lately he has been talking a lot about the Mexican border, more than 1,500 miles from snowy St. Paul.

His administration issued a report in December estimating that as many as 85,000 illegal immigrants live in Minnesota, at a cost to taxpayers of up to $188 million a year.

Democrats and other critics questioned the Republican governor's numbers and his motives. But that hasn't stopped Pawlenty from making immigration a top issue as he seeks reelection.

Similarly, GOP gubernatorial candidates such as Jim Oberweis in Illinois, Bob Beauprez in Colorado, and Lieutenant Governor Kerry Healey in Massachusetts have been staking out hard-line positions on illegal immigration. And Governor Janet Napolitano of Arizona, a Democrat facing criticism on immigration in her own reelection bid, is pushing a $100 million border security plan.

Campaign specialists say looking tough on illegal immigration can bring in both conservative and working-class votes.

Let's face it. Democrats want to keep things the way they are because they think the votes from Hispanic (and legal) citizens are more important than national security. In the world of politics, it is never quite what they want you to think...

"In a place like Minnesota, which I think has a generous welfare program, the image can be, 'Oh, these people come in and take advantage of this,' " said Rodolfo de la Garza, a political science professor at Columbia University. "You pander to cultural conservative types and to economically frightened types."

The strategy has brought withering criticism from people who work with immigrants.

"He's reacting out of fear and he's also using fear as a tool to encourage people that are undecided to vote for him," said Ernesto Bustos, who organizes migrant farm workers in Owatonna.

In Pawlenty's first campaign four years ago, he promoted a system of tracking immigrants through their driver's licenses, running a TV ad that said, "Terrorists are here."

He was criticized for that, too, but went on to win.

THESE people, illegal immigrants, do come to America to take advantage of us. Anyone who see's this in another way is just a bleeding hearted fool. And people who work with illegal immigrants should be considered to be breaking laws as well. Working with?? This must mean aiding and assisting them. Any candidate who promotes a tougher stance on this issue is worthy of serious consideration for whatever office they are seeking. Far too many politicians do not take this stuff seriously. It's time we work to promote those who will speak for us.

Soon after his immigration report, Pawlenty rolled out a plan to go after illegals. He proposed to deputize state agents to enforce federal immigration laws, criminalize possession of fake IDs, and ban local ordinances that keep police from asking about immigration status.

"You'd have to be really living under a rock not to see this as a real issue," he said, pointing to photographs of methamphetamine, marijuana, machine guns, and cash seized from illegal immigrants.

Although 95 percent of Minnesotans were born in the United States, the number of foreign-born residents is growing faster here than almost anywhere else in the country, said Katherine Fennelly, a professor who studies immigration at the University of Minnesota. Pawlenty's figure for those living illegally in the state came from estimates by the Urban Institute and Pew Hispanic Institute.

If the estimates are correct, Minnesota has less than 1 percent of the estimated 11 million unauthorized immigrants living in the United States.

Right now it's Minnesota. Other states will follow. Illegals will invade every state of the union if we continue to enable them to do so. North Carolina has a huge problem with illegal immigration, and the state doesn't seem to want to do anything about it. Nevermind Arizona and California and New Mexico...the whole nation needs to come together to put an end to this.

Still, specialists expect immigration to remain a big issue in states like Minnesota.

"There's no question that the failure of the federal government to create an immigration system that works is creating enormous anxiety in the states," said Benjamin Johnson, director of the Washington-based Immigration Policy Center, which calls itself nonpartisan but proimmigrant.

A spokesman for Beauprez, one of two Republicans seeking to become Colorado's governor, said voters ask about immigration regularly.

Protesting the Protesters

Thanks GM for allowing me to post on your site...Get well soon my Friend.

On Saturday I participated in a protest the protesters at the Biltmore Fashion Mall in Phoenix AZ.
The Leftist group Code Pink arranged a protest against President Bush, and the war, and Oil prices, and big SUV's, and Education, and Judge Alito, and, and, and, Every thing else American. Most of all I could tell that people really only hated President Bush, Several people really believed that they were being spied on by the government OK, earth to the leftist, earth to the leftist. No one cares what you say unless you talk to Al-Qaeda

This first picture is of very OLD lady that couldn't come up with an argument other than we were stupid right wingers. Real nice OLD lady...hehe the lady in black only made personal attacks....these people are not capable of dialog.

Technorati Tags: ,

The kid with his back to me (in red) was a 20 year old College Protest Warrior that was engaging in debate with some real facts and was only called names in return.. did you know that the war in Iraq is only for Oil? Wow. How about the profit of the oil companies was 10 Billion? But they didn’t know that the total revenue was 300+ billion. One guy didn’t want to listen to anything other than the fact that the oil companies made about 9% profit.

This guy in front wouldn't even ask a question or answer a question about his sign...he would only stand there with a bad attitude. Whiner!

This guy with the yellow ribbon sign is a fake! He was wearing a Marine Corps Shirt. Claimed to Be a Marine to me (I was warring a Marine Shirt (If it absolutely positively has to be destroyed over Night, US Marines). When this guy was talking to a leftist Navy guy he claimed to have been in the Navy during Viet Nam. So I questioned him and his story changed again. He was not able to get into the service at all but was going to enlist in the Navy as a Corpsman to be near the Marines...Then he was a Christian, but not a really a Christian but just spiritual...what does that mean? I think it means he like his convenient religion.

The guys in red on one side were announcing the opposition has arrived. let the deate begin.

These guys headed straight into the pink hornets nest...The personal attacks were coming out of the pink side like mad. mad Pinky's

We were outnumbered by about 50 to 10 but we one every battle.

Later I talked to a DJ on Air America and tried to debate the anti American signs he was caring and he said his brother (a high School History teacher) would have to debate me because he was not up on all of the issues that were listed on the sign he picked up... OK whenever. he said most right wingers were just stupid, ignorant, mean people. WRONG.

Sick Lame and Lazy. This lady riding her chair around stood up to shoe me her shirt.

If you really want to understand the people we were going up against check this out..
This is a car that one of the pink girls drove up in.

Some funny things were there was even a leftist lawyer but he couldn't argue other than to say that I was stupid and must have been a drop out of school...I think he should retire because he sucks at presenting a case for what he was there for…I would not hire him. He must be in the ACLU.

It's always about MONEY

What a fucking ditch bitch. LOL.

NASHUA, N.H. -A woman angered by her husband's refusal to give her money arranged for two men to break-in and rob him of more than $2,500 as he slept, police said.

Beth Ortiz, 35, had argued with her husband, Valente Ortiz, 28, about money last Friday and left their apartment, police said.

Before going to bed, Valente Ortiz left the apartment unlocked, expecting his wife's return, police said. Instead, he told police, he was awakened by two men who rifled through his pants, taking cash from his wallet and pocket. One of the men allegedly punched him, police said.

Raymond Alleyne, 22, and Anthony Perkins, 20, both of Nashua, were arrested after police found them with Beth Ortiz at another apartment. Beth Ortiz was charged with conspiracy, Alleyne with burglary, and Perkins with burglary and simple assault.

Dipshits, oops I meant Diplomats

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - John Bolton, Washington's feisty U.N. ambassador, tried to open his first meeting as head of the Security Council at 10 a.m. sharp on Thursday -- and was irked to find no other diplomats showed up.

"I brought the gavel down at 10. I was the only one in the room," Bolton said. The United States has just assumed the rotating presidency of the 15-nation council for the month of February.

This is how the UN works for us. This is an example of the level of respect these so called dipshits, oops I meant diplomats have, for the world.

"I believe in discipline. I think daily briefings constitute a form of intellectual discipline. Starting on time is a form of discipline," Bolton told reporters. "I failed today."

"I took a list of when they (council members) came in," Bolton said. "We started just before 10:15."

As part of a plan to modernize council operations, Bolton proposed that ambassadors gather daily at 10 a.m. for a briefing on the latest global political and peacekeeping developments.

This is nothing new...sessions and meetings at the UN have always started late. It's part of the culture. A lack of discipline for sure. And a lack of accountability. At my work when we have meetings, it's a little different when one of us is late- it is often because a patient requires the attention of nursing staff. At the UN, there is no excuse really, it's just the way of it there. It's fashionable and expected.

As part of a plan to modernize council operations, Bolton proposed that ambassadors gather daily at 10 a.m. for a briefing on the latest global political and peacekeeping developments.

Some ambassadors grumbled they already had too many commitments to attend daily sessions and others suggested perhaps two such briefings a week would suffice. Council members agreed to discuss the idea further on Friday.

Oh my...the world's business isn't special enough to meet once a day to talk about? What could be more pressing? What other commitments do these idiOts have? Milk and cookie meetings in the nearest cafeteria? These slurp and burp sessions are really more vital than any issues the world is having...course it could be the dipshits, oops I meant diplomats are just sitting in the cushy little offices checking their email and web (porn) sites.

Bolton, who describes the U.S. reform campaign as an "irresistible force" pitted against the "immovable object" that is the United Nations, also suggested U.N. officials circulate the text of planned council briefings 48 hours ahead of time.
Wow...he wants an agenda to go out ahead of these meetings. No wonder he's having trouble getting the dipshits-oops I meant diplomats- to show up. They don't know a thing about how to manage a meeting.
That ran into trouble when some envoys insisted that could happen only if the text was translated into all six official U.N. languages -- Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish.
Like this didn't happen in the first place. Do they think we're dumb or something? Is this an excuse? Give me a fucking break. Next the dipshits-oops I meant diplomats, will complain about the text size. Get us OUT OF THE UN NOW!

Jimminy Cartah

My hero.
The one and only man of peace.
He who couldn't take any action back when the Iranians took Americans for hostage.
He who speaks bad of this, HIS, country.
He who fondles the likes of Fidel Castro.
The peanut farmer who needs to go back to shell factory.

(CNN) -- Hamas deserves to be recognized by the international community, and despite the group's militant history, there is a chance the soon-to-be Palestinian leaders could turn away from violence, former President Jimmy Carter said Wednesday.

Carter, who monitored last week's Palestinian elections in which Hamas handily toppled the ruling Fatah, added that the United States should not cut off aid to the Palestinian people, but rather funnel it through third parties like the U.N.

Cartah needs to stick to his nuts and stay out of current politics. The world is a different place than when he was President. Groups like Hamas wouldn't be in power had Jimminy taken the right roads way back and kicked the asses of these Islamafreakoids.

Sexy Beans


PORTLAND, Maine - A misprinted phone number in a catalog that L.L. Bean sends to fishing enthusiasts may have misdirected some callers to a phone sex line.

Bean said the error appeared at the bottom of the first page of the Fishing 2006 catalog and involved a swap of letters in the 1-800-FISH-LLB number that the outdoors outfitter in Freeport has used for years.

The number is listed correctly without the use of letters in other parts of the catalog, spokesman Rich Donaldson said.
Bean was aware that the phone sex operator had a similar number and sought at one point to buy the line, but its offer was refused, Donaldson said.

Bean is sending postcards and e-mails to customers who received the catalogs, apologizing “for any embarrassment or discomfort,” he said.

Got Balls??

Balls? Got them?

I know...I know...this is old but I liked it a few years back and still like it now.

After a 2 year study, the National Science Foundation announced the following results on the American Male's recreational preferences:

1. The sport of choice for unemployed or incarcerated people is: basketball
2. The sport of choice for maintenance level employees is: bowling.
3. The sport of choice for blue-collar workers is: football.
4. The sport of choice for supervisors is: baseball.
5. The sport of choice for middle management is: tennis.
6. The sport of choice for corporate officers is: golf.

Conclusion: The higher you rise in the corporate structure, the smaller your balls become.

Alito Opposes Mo. Execution

What the hell is this shit????

">Alito Opposes Mo. Execution???

What..Is he against the death penalty? Does he realize how many conservatives he's gonna piss off??

Does he care?
I like him.

New Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito split with the court's conservative Wednesday night, refusing to let Missouri execute a death-row inmate contesting lethal injection.

Alito, handling his first case, sided with inmate Michael Taylor, who had won a stay from an appeals court earlier in the evening. Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas supported lifting the stay, but Alito joined the remaining five members in turning down Missouri's last-minute request to allow a midnight execution.

Sheehan Shenagans

Yeah RIGHT!!

WASHINGTON (AP) - Capitol Police dropped a charge of unlawful conduct against anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan on Wednesday and apologized for ejecting her and a congressman's wife from President Bush's State of the Union address for wearing T-shirts with war messages.

"The officers made a good faith, but mistaken effort to enforce an old unwritten interpretation of the prohibitions about demonstrating in the Capitol," Capitol Police Chief Terrance Gainer said in a statement late Wednesday.

"The policy and procedures were too vague," he added. "The failure to adequately prepare the officers is mine."

The extraordinary statement came a day after police removed Sheehan and Beverly Young, wife of Rep. C.W. "Bill" Young, R-Fla., from the visitors gallery Tuesday night. Sheehan was taken away in handcuffs before Bush's arrival at the Capitol and charged with a misdemeanor, while Young left the gallery and therefore was not arrested, Gainer said.

"Neither guest should have been confronted about the expressive T-shirts," Gainer's statement said.

Gainer added that he was asking the U.S. attorney's office to drop the charge against Sheehan. The statement also said he apologized to the Youngs and "share the department's plans for avoiding this in the future."

"A similar message has been left with Mrs. Sheehan," Gainer said.

For his part, Bill Young said he was not necessarily satisfied.

"My wife was humiliated," he told reporters. He suggested that "sensitivity training" may be in order for Capitol Police.

A foreign-born American citizen who was the guest of Rep. Alcee Hastings, D-Fla., also was taken by police from the gallery just above the House floor, Hastings said Wednesday.

The congressman met with Gainer and House Speaker Dennis Hastert, R-Ill., about the incident.

"I'd like to find out more information," Hastings said in an interview, identifying the man only as being from Broward County in Florida. "He is a constituent of mine. I invited him proudly."

Sheehan's T-shirt alluded to the number of soldiers killed in Iraq: "2245 Dead. How many more?" Capitol Police charged her with a misdemeanor for violating the District of Columbia's code against unlawful or disruptive conduct on any part of the Capitol grounds, a law enforcement official said. She was released from custody and flew home Wednesday to Los Angeles.

Young's shirt had just the opposite message: "Support the Troops - Defending Our Freedom."

The two women appeared to have offended tradition if not the law, according to several law enforcement and congressional officials. By custom, the annual address is to be a dignified affair in which the president reports on the state of the nation. Guests in the gallery who wear shirts deemed political in nature have, in past years, been asked to change or cover them up.

Rules dealing mainly with what people can bring and telling them to refrain from reading, writing, smoking, eating, drinking, applauding or taking photographs are outlined on the back of gallery passes given to tourists every day.

However, State of the Union guests don't receive any guidelines, according to Deputy House Sergeant at Arms Kerri Hanley. "You would assume that if you were coming to an event like the State of the Union address you would be dressed in appropriate attire," she said.
