Tent Camp at Guantanamo?


As U.S. President George W. Bush urges Cubans to push for peaceful democratic change, the U.S. military is preparing a site on its Guantanamo base in Cuba for a tent camp to house up to 10,000 Caribbean migrants by next summer.

Although there is nothing to indicate a mass migration is looming just over a year after Cuban leader Fidel Castro was sidelined from power by an illness, there are tentative plans for a second tent camp that could hold 35,000 more.

The Buck Doesn't Stop At Condi's Desk! Damn Straight!


The State Department's security chief was forced to resign yesterday after a critical review found that his office had failed to adequately supervise private contractors protecting U.S. diplomats in Iraq.

Richard J. Griffin, a former Secret Service agent who was once in charge of presidential protection, was told by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's deputy, John D. Negroponte, to leave office by Nov. 1.



"A very special edition of 'Dateline' the other night. Matt Lauer interviewed Idaho Senator Larry Craig. Actually, the senator was a little confused. He thought it was 'Win A Date with Matt Lauer.'

If you didn't see the interview, it will rerun on Bravo on 'Queer Eye For Pretending To Be The Straight Guy.'" --Jay Leno

Don't you think Mrs. Bush could be a little more culturally sensitive
not wear pants in a Muslim country and cover her ankles?



Wow, you used the words Bush and culture in the same sentence! Congratulations!


She stuck out like a sore thumb posing with the Saudi women. I guess that was her point.

Has the FBI contacted you yet?


Jeff Cohen (Liberal Republican and you can print my name)








I sent an e-mail to Walter, asking him to join in the noble fight that is Iraq. He returned, Democrats like to slam republicans and so on. I sent a mail informing him of the non war that it is.He immediately sent me an e-mail saying he was refused to serve but that his two sons were marines and were joining up for a second tour.All I can say is if that is true, I offer my prayers and their swift return. I do hope his hatred is matched by the fact that they are tools of every money making scam known to man. God Bless Walter.

I agree.

People like Walter don't let facts get in their way. It requires thinking.

I believe it is a right wing gene mutation.
