It's bad enough that Idaho is now #1 in support of Bushco. Now we have Bill Sali GOP candidate for Idaho's 1st Congressional District telling women about their bodies.

Lord help us all if he ever comes across the theory that an "active" (open to interpretation) sex life decreases the prospect of prostate cancer; he'll be trying to legislate times per week!

A warning for those whose eyes are Fox News logos shining out of their solid brick heads.

You are a group that marches in step. All Bushco has to do is hype an issue to set off every stiff-necked, righteous fool in the area.

Those of you writing in about illegal immigration, do you really have any idea what is going on in this country? Bushco has done far more to bankrupt your future than every Hispanic in North America ever could, legal or “illegal.”

How many of you so concerned about the law readily dismiss the rampant corruption of this administration? How many support the illegal wiretapping? Forgive media manipulation? Ignore the murder of soldiers (85% of whom think Saddam was involved in 9-11) and untold Iraqi citizens? Have you taken on the companies who hire illegals or is it only those to whom you feel superior who should answer for their crimes?

The illegal immigration issue sat in limbo until scandals called for another diversion. The biggest problem we face is that thanks to Bushco and laws written by corporations, you just might have to vie with an illegal immigrant for the chance to flip burgers or clean toilets while trying to survive on a bottomed-out dollar.

Mike Whitney recently wrote, “In just 6 years, Bush has taken the world’s strongest currency and chopped it into finely ground hash. By the time people rouse from their stupor, the greenback will be eye to eye with the peso.”

I suppose it will be poetic justice for those who march to Bush’s drummer to experience what George and corporate America have in store for them. It’s called the other end of the stick. Unfortunately, way too many innocents will be sharing the experience.

What does an expert on the NSA have to say? (I'm a poet and just don't...)

Instead of the fury that should erupt when you find your government conducting an overall spying program on the average American, too many citizens are like cows, standing in the field, happy to chew their cuds while the world outside disintegrates.

Susan G at Daily Kos lists 10 items of note for those who support this type of program at For those without computer access, I will paraphrase:

1. It doesn’t make sense to make the haystack bigger when looking for a needle.

2. Being mere citizens, we won’t ever know the cost of this program, but you can bet it’s not cheap.

3. You are being lulled into acceptance by a group who has repeatedly lied to America in order to get their way.

4. The president is not above the law. The program is illegal.

5. The information is available to all subcontractors in the program and there is no general oversight.

6. Do you really want the world to know how often you contact your healthcare providers? Picture being denied coverage in the future.

7. Bushco is in bed with big business. What’s to stop them from sharing info gleaned from records of an innovative new company.

8. This is the largest database in the world. We know this group. Very likely their database holds even more than has been revealed.

9. What’s to prevent an “innovative” NSA or subcontractor employee from watching the way this administration operates and deciding, “Wow, I could blackmail _____ with this!”

10. It’s unAmerican (the old America).

Remember this: If you don’t guard your basic rights, this administration certainly won’t!

Too bad they didn't know that Bush has elevated himself from mere "Christian" to the above.

Turns out the translation of Iran's letter must have been read by a number of citizens, many who had the same reaction I did. Why else would Dubya's response today that the letter said nothing about Iran ridding themselves of nuclear development?

Read it yourself from the link above. I am stunned that despite trustworthy sources reporting that this is NOT an emergent situation, Bushco continues with yet another push to bomb another mid Eastern country with oil resources.

Just what we need. A member of the military to head the CIA AND a supporter of the illegal domestic wiretap program!
