America, Bush and Iraq

America has always had brave men and women who rose to the challenge when called to defend this country. That is why I am so angry at the conservative's, the Republican's, the Neo cons, the evangelical Christians , the chicken hawks, and even the media.

Why, you ask? Because we allowed these people to threaten us as traitors if we spoke out against this war. We allowed these people to challenge anyone who had the will to speak out as not giving a true statement.

We set back and allowed people to loose their jobs and their will to speak out in fear of being called traitors by these folks.

Our consciousness has lost the ideal of freedom of speech, it know longer exist in this country because of this madness.

On October 11 2002, the US House of Representatives authorized war-making powers to this President. The vote was 296-133 in favor in the Congress and 77 to 23 in the Senate. Congress agreed that the threat from Saddam Hussein caused them to give this President the right to go to war with the help of the UN. The Democrats had 126 of the House's 208 Democrats who had the seance to vote against this madness. The rest I guess is history.

Here we are this Memorial Day watching our son's and daughter's die in a war who's purpose has changed more times than I care to remember.

Why dont we just impeach this President and his Vice President and start from there. What say you?

Moqtada al-Sadr Urges U.S. Withdrawal While President Signs Bill

Moqtada al-Sadr Urges U.S. Withdrawal while a nation is mad and confused about the scrapping withdrawal timelines on funding for the Iraq war.

A lot of Democrats voted for this Congress to get us out of Iraq. The bill was signed at Camp David, the presidential retreat in Maryland. I guess Bush is now on vacation.

"I think the president's policy is going to begin to unravel now," said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who expressed disappointment that the bill did not force an end to U.S. participation in the conflict.

Democrats are really hot under the collar on this one, but so are some Republicans.

What say you?

What the Constitution Means To Our President

See Original Story

The Constitution has stood for two centuries as the defining document of our government, the final source to determine - in the end - if something is legal or right.

Every federal official - including the President - who takes an oath of office swears to "uphold and defend" the Constitution of the United States.

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia says he cringes when someone calls the Constitution a "living document."

Well Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, what would you say if I told you that President Bush thinks the Constitution in his own words; "It's just a goddamned piece of paper!"

The way this man treats our citizen's, I guess we are not too much better than the Constitution...

"Holy Cow Batman" Bush Don't Think Troops Need Bigger Pay Raises

Troops don’t need bigger pay raises, Bush budget officials said the administration "strongly opposes" both the 3.5 percent raise for 2008 and the follow-on increases, calling extra pay increases "unnecessary."

It was so necessary to get the billions to waste in Iraq, but not necessary to raise the pay for the troops.

The Bush administration had asked for a 3 percent military raise for Jan. 1, 2008, enough to match last year’s average pay increase in the private sector. The House Armed Services Committee recommends a 3.5 percent pay increase for 2008, and increases in 2009 through 2012 that also are 0.5 percentage point greater than private-sector pay raises.

The slightly bigger military raises are intended to reduce the gap between military and civilian pay that stands at about 3.9 percent today. Under the bill, HR 1585, the pay gap would be reduced to 1.4 percent after the Jan. 1, 2012, pay increase.

Bush budget officials said the administration “strongly opposes” both the 3.5 percent raise for 2008 and the follow-on increases, calling extra pay increases “unnecessary.”

“When combined with the overall military benefit package, the president’s proposal provides a good quality of life for service members and their families,” the policy statement says. “While we agree military pay must be kept competitive, the 3 percent raise, equal to the increase in the Employment Cost Index, will do that.”

"Holy cow, Batman" there's even more this President oppose for our troops!

The Gavel has the $40/month allowance for military survivors that he oppose, he thinks the current benefits are "sufficient."

"Creepers Robin," what kind of message does that send the Troops?

Greensburg, Kansas & The National Guard


The Kansas National Guard has 40 soldiers and 12 airmen on duty providing security. Approximately 64 soldiers of the 891st Engineer Battalion, headquartered in Iola, will arrive in Greensburg Monday morning, May 7, along with chainsaws and light engineering equipment to assist with debris removal.

The Civil Air Patrol has been conducting reconnaissance flights along the tornado’s path to search for possible tornado victims, stranded motorists and residents.

The Kansas Highway Patrol has 16 troopers on duty in the Greensburg area manning checkpoints, security patrols and search and rescue operations. The KHP communications van and three personnel are also in Greensburg assisting with communications.

What if the next city has a population of 150,000... I was so down hearted after this that I posted "field of gold" by Sting live 1993, the song has nothing to do with this but it was what I wanted to hear. To listen go to Let's Talk About It.

Who You Gonna Call

Click Photo

See Original Story

It seems every time Bush has a problem with the war in Iraq and things are just not really going his way.... we get a new video from his ENEMY.

It's as if he gives these folks a call and they come to his aid in some type of way.

Al Qaeda's No. 2 leader mocks President Bush and legislation requiring the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq, saying the bill would rob the group's fighters of the chance to kill more Americans.

This is enough, how long are we going to be stuck on stupid... am I the only one that sees a pattern?

The Veto

Four years ago our President declared "major combat operations" in Iraq were over, yesterday President Bush vetoed a bill that calls for the start of a withdrawal of American troops from Iraq.

President Bush's Administration have already started their talking points-- saying the Democrats will be to blame for any hardships suffered by U.S. troops and their families.

Speaker Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Reid addressed the media yesterday in respond to President Bush's veto.

Congress appropriated more than $100 billion to support our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. It would seem that it's now up to this President to explain to the American people why he would veto the appropriation.
