assume the political risk of ending the war.
In a press conference, members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus and the Out of Iraq Caucus proposed legislation that would require Congress fully to fund the safe and secure withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq by December 31, 2007.

commentator Ann Coulter called former Vice President Al Gore a "total fag" on
national television nearly a year ago, it barely caused a stir.
Coulter's recent labeling of presidential candidate John Edwards as a "faggot," however, has triggered a huge response, including a campaign initiated today by a gay rights group and media watchdog to persuade mainstream media outlets to dump her for good.
Valerie Plame, the CIA operative exposed after her husband criticized President Bush's march to war, will testify next week before lawmakers probing how the White House dealt with her identity, the chairman of the panel said Thursday.

Hagel Ready To Announce . . . What?
Add the Attorney General to the Impeachment Short List
Admittedly, there is much
information publicly available regarding Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, his
rise to White House Counsel and then to his current position of Attorney
General. His impact on the direction of the country over the past six years is
His documents -- his advice and his counsel -- have laid the foundation for torture, suspension of habeas corpus, warrantless wiretapping, the expansion of power in the Executive Branch and, most recently, what at least appears to be the politically motivated replacement of many U.S. Attorneys with Administration loyalists, in order to pad their resumes

The Buck Stopped At Abu Ghraib
In his final lecture at
Stanford University, Philip Zimbardo said abuses committed by Army reservists at
Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison weren't isolated incidents by rogue soldiers. Rather,
sadism was the inevitable result of U.S. government policies that condone
brutality toward enemies, he said...''Good American soldiers were corrupted by
the bad barrel in which they too were imprisoned,'' said Zimbardo, 73. ''Those
barrels were designed, crafted, maintained and mismanaged by the bad barrel
from the top down in the military and civilian Bush administration.''

Bush Visits Brazil and Pisses Most Everybody Off
President Bush sees the new agreement with Brazil on ethanol as a way to boost alternative fuels production in the Americas and get more cars running on something other than gasoline...Some protesters, carrying stalks of sugar cane, protested the ethanol agreement, which is being formally signed by officials with the State Department and the Brazilian foreign ministry. The demonstrators warned that increased ethanol production could lead to social unrest because most operations are run by wealthy families or corporations that reap the profits, while the poor are left to cut the cane with machetes.

Subject: Response to
Chinese pets as dinner?
Thanks for my morning dose of racism.
I hope you are being sarcastic. The reason I made that comment was due to my son's culinary experiences in China last summer. He said he ate chicken, beef, fish, frog, pork, rat and dog -- and a delicious mystery meat on stick.
I was just kidding!
Seriously, you apologized? The "National" dog of China is the Chow Chow. And, in America, "chow" means what, exactly? At every base I was stationed at in seven + years' military service, dining facilities (which I routinely avoided) were called "chow halls". Does anyone think this is an accident?
You are sweet, kind, and considerate, and beyond lovely, to tolerate this crap in a world of war, torture, and hate for oil and religion.
Racism is Emmit Till, and dragging James Byrd Jr. to death in Jasper, TX.
The fact that in China and North Korea dogs are a meal-time staple is disgusting, not racism.
If DD wants racism to protest, watch Lou Dobbs on CNN and leave My Favorite Website to those of us who can appreciate the difference.
Red State Hell
Wow Doug! Thanks and a big hug!.
But I didn't apologize.
I was just kidding about a dog for sale painted as a panda in a country where dog meat is familiar. The odd thing is that Chinese dog would sell for a higher price as a pet instead of dinner in most of China today.
Sometimes people get offended when there is no intent. I think that is what happened to DD.
One of my favorite forms of humor is when black comedians/comediennes start imitating white people.
Thanks for your loyalty. Deep curtsy.
