Saturday night for thought

Hello, and welcome to a special weekend edition. This is what I like to call news on the run, because I''m not sticking around to explain anything. Its up to you to make a stand, so do so.

Thursday can't forget about O.J.

Hello and welcome. I do not want to hear any more garbage about O.J. Simpson. He should be in jail already, and he will be headed there now. End of story, fucking mainstream media can't get enough of this dog fed bullshit. Also, we need to break the fascist spell that is overpowering us with police brutality. There is no need for tasers and 'pain guns'. And just to make your day peachy, the American dollar has sunk down to the equivalent of a Canadian dollar. The exchange rate with the Euro is now at 1.4. Gah, our money is being flushed down the drain.

Wednesday's Greenspan?

Hello all. So, yeah- Greenspan? What do you think, is he just another fleeing rat? I would lean that way, but the decision is up to you. Honestly, I don't trust anyone from the administration. Call me a liberal if you will, but I smell fish. Rotten, stinking, rat-like fish. Also, have you ever been tasered? With all the tasering hype lately, I wouldn't be surprised.

The Founders, in their wisdom, wouldn't let Washington become king. Today, in a nation with 4x the area and 70x the population there appear to be no wise leaders willing to step forward and challenge the stubborn, arrogant Bush from conducting himself as a king; no true patriots calling for the citizenry to reclaim their participative democracy.

Lieberman: Can't We Invade Iran Yet? Petraeus, for some reason, politely declined to start a third contemporaneous U.S. war (

Bush invaded a country to rid it of imaginary weapons of mass destruction. When he didn’t find any, he declared victory and changed the mission to democracy building. When that strategy led to a theocratic government unresponsive to sectarian bloodletting, the mission became about stability. And now, the one goal supporters of the war seem determined to realize is to achieve some vague, if delusory, sense of victory. (

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Friday U.S. President George W. Bush's Middle East policies had failed and he and others would one day be put on trial for "the tragedies they have created in Iraq." (
