Peace wreath fined!

t r u t h o u t | News Politics: "November 28, 2006 | Bill Trimarco and Lisa Jensen with their symbolic wreath. Last week, they were threatened with fines of $25 a day by their homeowners association until they removed the four-foot wreath shaped like a peace symbol from the front of their house. In its original letter to the couple, the association said some neighbors had found the peace symbol politically 'divisive.' The fines have been dropped, the three-member board of the association has resigned, and peace signs are multiplying in the town.

Imagine, some folks were complaining the peace symbol was "satanic." WTF! On what planet do these folks live???

In Class Warfare, Guess Which Class Is Winning - New York Times

I heard about this on the Sam Seder show on Air America Radio this morning. Just think, it came from the ultra conservative Ben Stein (of the "Bueller, Bueller" fame).
In Class Warfare, Guess Which Class Is Winning - New York Times: "Everybody's Business
In Class Warfare, Guess Which Class Is Winning

NOT long ago, I had the pleasure of a lengthy meeting with one of the smartest men on the planet, Warren E. Buffett, the chief executive of Berkshire Hathaway, in his unpretentious offices in Omaha. We talked of many things that, I hope, will inspire me for years to come. But one of the main subjects was taxes. Mr. Buffett, who probably does not feel sick when he sees his MasterCard bill in his mailbox the way I do, is at least as exercised about the tax system as I am.

Put simply, the rich pay a lot of taxes as a total percentage of taxes collected, but they don’t pay a lot of taxes as a percentage of what they can afford to pay, or as a percentage of what the government needs to close the deficit gap.

Mr. Buffett compiled a data sheet of the men and women who work in his office. He had each of them make a fraction; the numerator was how much they paid in federal income tax and in payroll taxes for Social Security and Medicare, and the denominator was their taxable income. The people in his office were mostly secretaries and clerks, though not all.

It turned out that Mr. Buffett, with immense income from dividends and capital gains, paid far, far less as a fraction of his income than the secretaries or the clerks or anyone else in his office. Further, in conversation it came up that Mr. Buffett doesn’t use any tax planning at all. He just pays as the Internal Revenue Code requires. “How can this be fair?” he asked of how little he pays relative to his employees. “How can this be right?”

Even though I agreed with him, I warned that whenever someone tried to raise the issue, he or she was accused of fomenting class warfare.

“There’s class warfare, all right,” Mr. Buffett said, “but it’s my class, the rich class, that’s making war, and we’re winning.”"

Helicopters on the Rooftops

From HuffPo blogger Cenk Uygur (of the Young Turks):

"Iraq has passed the tipping point. It is spiraling out of control. There are no more solutions. There has never been any good solutions, but now there are no solutions whatsoever. Everyone is wasting their breath trying to figure out a sensible and moderate way out of Iraq. It is completely hopeless."

Remembering our fathers

My husband and I, are remembering our fathers this week. My father, George, and my husband's father, Boris, died 3 days apart. Their legacies, are both interesting. We think that the two men, so opposite in many ways, had so much in common that they had a "date" in the next world. Boris was an immigrant to this country; my Dad could have been a member of the Sons of the American Revolution. What did they have in common? Love of this country.
They both served in WW II, my father in North Africa, Sicily and Italy, and Boris in France and Germany. They loved SOS, spam, souse, and organ meats. They could both sing Maresie Doats, Don't sit under the Apple tree, You are my sunshine, my only sunshine and She'll be coming around the mountain, and loved slang words like schlemiel, S.N.A.F.U., and my Dad's favorite for us, "wrong way Corrigan!" They were both loved people and loved to talk.
My father served in the US Army Air Corps (US Air Force) as a Chaplain for over 30 years. My father-in-law, served in the US Army and civil service.
Their legacies?
Two examples, which of course, do not include the legacies of fun, frivolity, and love they left to their families, but what they left to their country.....

This is the Memorial Window at the Strategic Air Command Chapel at Offutt AFB, NE. It commemorates the service, duty and loyalty of USAF comrades during WW II. It was my father's project. Boris, left another legacy, his valuable skill as a translator during the cold war.

These men, and the men and women of their generation gave everything they had and more to this country. They came back from war to the GI Bill, and a country that thanked them for their service. The middle class was born, unions were strong, one man could raise a family and buy a house on his wages. Yes, we were more homogeneous then, and a lot of it was due to homogeneity forged in the military when all our fathers were just "GI Issue." Our country and our parents worked to rebuild Europe and Japan; many admirable things were accomplished.

President Jimmy Carter stated the following in his recent book, Our Endangered Values:
"Our people have been justifiably proud to see America's power and influence used to preserve peace for ourselves and others, to promote economic and social justice, to raise high the banner of freedom and human rights, to protect the quality of our environment, to alleviate human suffering, to enhance the rule of law, and to cooperate with other peoples to reach these common goals."

These were the goals of our fathers, ours and yours. Their legacy. They had a common bond, whether new immigrant or old immigrant, a bond forged in adversity. Now, in adversity, all we have done is polarize ourselves, forgetting the values that brought us together as a nation. For the sake of our fathers and forefathers, we should get back to the business of building a nation for everyone. ALL of us.

Again, to quote Carter, ..."our own well being [as a nation]would be enhanced by restoring the trust, admiration, and friendship that our nation formerly enjoyed among other peoples."

The Blotter

The Blotter: "First Daughter Barbara Robbed in Argentina

November 21, 2006 3:14 PM

From Our Sources:

Bush_sisters_nr First Daughter Barbara Bush had her purse and cell phone stolen as she had dinner in a restaurant in Buenos Aires, Argentina, even though she was being guarded by a detail of Secret Service agents, according to law enforcement reports made available to ABC News.

It was not the only mishap on the two-week trip to Argentina by Barbara (right) and her twin sister Jenna (left).

A Secret Service agent on the advance detail got into an 'altercation' with someone after a night out and was badly beaten, according to the law enforcement reports. The Secret Service said today the incident was an attempted mugging that occurred while the agent was on his own time. The agent is doing fine."

My comment....Oh boo hoo Now you know how the rest of us manage to exist without body guards. Funny, I have been overseas but never mugged. Perhaps I knew, from long experience, to never carry a purse. Duh! Even may daughters don't carry purses. Guess you wanted your several hundred dollar status symbol purse to stick out. Well it did, moron.

Calif. Couple Calls for Orgasm for Peace - New York Times:
Published: November 19, 2006

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Two peace activists have planned a massive anti-war demonstration for the first day of winter.

But they don't want you marching in the streets. They'd much rather you just stay home.

The Global Orgasm for Peace was conceived by Donna Sheehan, 76, and Paul Reffell, 55, whose immodest goal is for everyone in the world to have an orgasm Dec. 22 while focusing on world peace.

''The orgasm gives out an incredible feeling of peace during it and after it,'' Reffell said Sunday. ''Your mind is like a blank. It's like a meditative state. And mass meditations have been shown to make a change.''"
Ok, sounds like a plan to me! Oh progressive grandpa..... LOL.

AlterNet: We Need a "Can-Do" Attitude on Health Care

By Barbara Ehrenreich, AlterNet, Posted on November 15,2006,
After their roaring two-house victory, the Democrats are squeaking about micro-policies. There'll be no impeachment, we're told, though maybe a bit more oversight of Halliburton-style war profiteering. No withdrawal from Iraq, only a 'phased redeployment.' And, the New York Times assures us (11/12/06), that the Dems ' have largely dropped ... talk of a Canadian-style national health insurance.' Instead, they might try to reverse the Medicare drug plan's ban on bargaining for drug price discounts.

They've caught the can't-do spirit that hovers over that former malarial swamp, Washington D.C. "

Wake up Dems! We, the activists helped get you elected and we, the activists can, and will, exert pressure if you continue this cowardly streak.

WE THE PEOPLE did not put you there to sit on your stinking hands! Get some balls and get out there and fight for what is right, even if you don't think you can. We need to see action on issues that are important to our society as a whole.

Tom DeLay: Nancy Pelosi Refused To Have A Slave "Mindset" When She Was In The Minority | The Huff - Huffington Post
On Tuesday, Fmr Republican Majority Leader Tom DeLay told the audience at the Time magazine Person of the Year luncheon and panel that he thinks soon to be House Speaker Nancy Pelosi deserves to be awarded the magazine's cover and title this year. DeLay's reason for nominating her included a metaphor on Washington, plantations and the slave mentality. Read what DeLay said below, since he manages to explain it best.

"I'm going to shock you on two levels. One is I think the real Person of the Year ought to be Nancy Pelosi....I think it's unfortunate that you said I created the culture in Washington. The Democrats, when they lost power, it was like, as John said, it was like losing your plantation - they refused to work with the Republican majority. Back in the good old days they always talk about the Republican minority mindset like the slaves of the plantation and as long as they kept that, the Democrats, they all got along. It's when things got up and changed that we all got more partisan. Nancy Pelosi, I have to give her credit."

Truthdig - Bush: I Can Hold Immigrants Forever, Without Trial

Truthdig - Bush: I Can Hold Immigrants Forever, Without Trial: "Bush: I Can Hold Immigrants Forever, Without Trial
Posted on Nov 14, 2006

From the AP: “Immigrants arrested in the United States may be held indefinitely on suspicion of terrorism and may not challenge their imprisonment in civilian courts,” Bush & Co. officials said Nov. 13.

Maybe it’s time to stop singing that Lee Greenwood song “God Bless the U.S.A” ? (And I’m proud to be an American, where at least I know I’m free...) Those lyrics don’t quite resonate anymore…


Immigrants arrested in the United States may be held indefinitely on suspicion of terrorism and may not challenge their imprisonment in civilian courts, the Bush administration said Monday, opening a new legal front in the fight over the rights of detainees.

In court documents filed with the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Va., the Justice Department said a new anti-terrorism law being used to hold detainees in Guantanamo Bay also applies to foreigners captured and held in the United States.

Ali Saleh Kahlah Al-Marri, a citizen of Qatar, was arrested in 2001 while studying in the United States. He has been labeled an “enemy combatant,” a designation that, under a law signed last month, strips foreigners of the right to challenge their detention in federal courts."

Soon will he try to ship dissidents off indefinitely? Thank goodness there will be some checks and balances in Jan. IF, and only if, the democrats quit this conciliatory B.S.

Truthdig - Barry Golson: Stop U.S.-Canada Immigration Now!

A little humor to brighten you day.
Truthdig - Barry Golson: Stop U.S.-Canada Immigration Now!: "The House of Commons in Canada’s Parliament today passed its final legislation of 2009, a controversial bill to strengthen Canada’s border with the U.S. The bill calls for erecting a wall across the continent from Nova Scotia to British Columbia, similar to the wall and demilitarized zone at the U.S. border with Mexico.

“Illegal American immigrants continue to take Canadian jobs,” said the Hon. Dashell Samuels, Minister of Public Safety. Samuels cited the estimated 10 million American “illegals” who “mow our lawns and bus our tables at below the minimum wage,” disrupting the Canadian economy."

Truthdig - Reports - Robert Scheer: Murtha’s No Lefty, But He’s Right

Truthdig - Reports - Robert Scheer: Murtha’s No Lefty, But He’s Right:
"What an insult it would be to voters to place a continued cheerleader (Hoyer)for the war in the No. 2 spot in the House. To reject the basically conservative Murtha also would be to reject the votes of independents and Republicans who broke with Bush on the war.

“Your courageous leadership ... changed the national debate and helped make Iraq the central issue of this historic election,” Pelosi told Murtha in offering her endorsement. “It was surely a dark day for the Bush administration when you spoke truth to power.”

Yes, and he did so at a time when Hoyer, and all too many Democrats in Congress, still supinely were accepting or supporting the administration’s obsessive insistence that occupying Iraq is the best way to prevent terror attacks."

Let us hope that Murtha gets the job. The right-wing baloney on a sting operation that occurred over 20 years ago, and proved nothing, is despicable.

A comment on slap a yellow ribbon on your SUV

The video, by the Asylum Street Spankers, brought to mind what I have said, in in various venues, that I am sick and tired of the lip service given to our veterans. As benefits have been cut time and time again, and our President has seen fit to ignore the dead and wounded, it's has become more and more obvious that this so-called war is all about money. Money for Halliburton, KBR, Caci, and Bush and Co.
They should be tried for crimes against humanity. I was interested to hear the following information on Democracy Now! There is never an excuse for torture, and our leaders should be made to step up to the bar of justice.

War Crimes Suit Prepared Against Rumsfeld

Democracy Now!

Thursday 09 November 2006

The president of the Center for Constitutional Rights, Michael Ratner, is heading to Germany today to file a new case charging outgoing Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld with war crimes for authorizing torture at Guantanamo Bay. [includes rush transcript] Would Rumsfeld stepping down leave him open to prosecution? In 2004, the Center for Constitutional Rights filed a criminal complaint in Germany on behalf of several Iraqi citizens who alleged that a group of U.S. officials committed war crimes in Iraq. Rumsfeld was among the officials named in the complaint. The Iraqis claimed they were victims of electric shock, severe beatings, sleep and food deprivation and sexual abuse.

Germany's laws on torture and war crimes permits the prosecution of suspected war criminals wherever they may be found.

Our Comments Are Open to the Public

Howard Dean: Laughingstock

Rewind your mental videotape back to the failed Iowa Primary. Howard Dean tries to rev up a bruised and battered crowd with a confident pep talk followed by what amounted to a "Yeee-hi!!!"

Video of the yeehi began to be played...and continued...and continued...making Dean look foolish. By the New Hampshire primary a week later, it had been played more than 1000 times on cable TV news.

1000 times.

(Photo:Little Dem pictured with Howard Dean when he was governor of Vermont.)

Howard Dean was electronically assassinated by the media. It wasn't an evil plot, but a lazy, silly, sheep-following-other-sheep decision made en masse by the bigwigs in TV news. He became a politically correct target and it was considered okay to openly mock Dean and question if he had a future outside of Vermont.

His presidential aspirations were killed that week, but his power wasn't extinguished. Before long, he pushed for and attained the leadership of the Democratic party. Due to the power of his massive Deaniac database, his creativity, friends made nationally during 5 terms as Vermont Governor, and plans for expanding the party for the 2006 elections made him the most viable candidate to run the Democratic re-election effort. The right wing giggled and gaggled and greeted the news with guffaws and glee. They thought that with Dean running things, it would be a cakewalk.

If you've been living in a cave, you should now be told that the Democrats soundly took the House and the Senate as well. Washington DC is on its ear. The president claims to be conciliatory and willing to compromise (we'll see about that, as tigers changing their stripes comes quickly to mind). And now we have James Carville saying that Dean should be replaced.

I live in Boerne and can't claim to know a heck of a lot about the backroom deals and the real bottom line on national party politics. But the Democrats just pulled something off that they haven't done in nearly two decades. If there's any time to be thankful, to recognize accomplishment, and to not change horses in mid stream, it seems this would be it. Dean's 50-state strategy seems to have made a measureable difference--see Montana, Missourri, Indiana and Virginia if you're looking for examples.

I gotta say, I was thoroughly disappointed when Dean didn't manifest a viable option to be president. But his time at the DNC has been by most any measure a resounding success. Let's give credit where it's due. To Howard Dean.

Bill Moyers | America 101

Again, Bill Moyers lays it out for the nation. The non critical thinkers among us need to pay attention, but will they?
Bill Moyers | America 101: " Rub the crystal ball: In the next few decades, when the huge liabilities start coming in due to Social Security and Medicare, there may be nothing left - less than nothing left - for public needs like education, highways, disaster relief, and social services, let alone national healthcare.

Small wonder that the Wall Street investor, Pete Peterson, a life-long Republican who served as President Nixon's Commerce Secretary, says our children's future is being ruined by a reckless fiscal 'theology.'

Theology asserts propositions that are believed whether or not they meet the test of reality. Not only do our governing elites act as if there's no tomorrow, they behave as if there is no reality. Alas, they won't be around to feel our grandchildren's pain.

In his recent book Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed , the Pulitzer-prize winning anthropologist Jared Diamond writes about how governing elites throughout history isolate and delude themselves until it is too late. He reminds us that the change people inflict on their environment was one of the main factors in the decline of earlier societies. For example: the Mayan natives on the Yucatan peninsula who suffered as their forests disappeared, their soil eroded, and their water supply deteriorated. Chronic warfare made matters worse as they exhausted dwindling resources. Although Mayan kings could see their forests vanishing and their hills eroding, they were able to insulate themselves from the rest of society. By extracting wealth from commoners, they could remain well fed while everyone else was slowly starving. Realizing too late that they could not reverse their deteriorating environment, they became casualties of their own privilege.

Any society contains a built-in blueprint for failure, Diamond warns, if elites insulate themselves from the consequences of their decisions. Then he describes an America in which elites have cocooned themselves in gated communities, guarded by private security patrols and filled with people who drink bottled water, depend on private pensions, and send their children to private schools. Gradually they lose their motivation to support the police force, the municipal water supply, social security, and public schools."

U.S. Web Archive Is Said to Reveal a Nuclear Guide - New York Times

Bush and Co. won't allow anti-war demonstrations, yet they allow the "cookbook" for nuclear bombs to be posted. This does not make any sense. Unless, you believe, as they obviously do, that by creating chaos, you can plunder the world.
Read on:
U.S. Web Archive Is Said to Reveal a Nuclear Guide - New York Times: "Last March, the federal government set up a Web site to make public a vast archive of Iraqi documents captured during the war. The Bush administration did so under pressure from Congressional Republicans who said they hoped to “leverage the Internet” to find new evidence of the prewar dangers posed by Saddam Hussein.

But in recent weeks, the site has posted some documents that weapons experts say are a danger themselves: detailed accounts of Iraq’s secret nuclear research before the 1991 Persian Gulf war. The documents, the experts say, constitute a basic guide to building an atom bomb."
