Blog Raising Money For Two Fallen Heroes

Remember the two soldiers recently killed in Iraq who also were part of the seven soldiers who cowrote the now famous piece in the NYT? Well, a great blog called Comments from Left Field has started a fund to honor them. The money will be donated to Fisher House who builds housing near military hospitals for families of the injured and sick.

Petraeus' Numbers Don't Match the Pentagon's!

Maybe he did betray us. The funny thing about this WaPo article is that the title on the front page is the mildly stated "What Defines a Killing as Sectarian?" It's not until you much later in the article that you learn that Petraus' numbers don't make any sense when compared to the official Pentagon numbers!

Billo 'surprised' that blacks act civilized in restaurant

Billo's true colors shine through when he expresses his surprise that blacks were not acting 'crazy' and shouting 'm-f'er' in a restaurant. The sad part is he probably thought he was complimenting them.

Rep Tom Davis (R-Naturally) Loses His Mind

Okay, let's get one thing straight. MoveOn.Org paid the FULL PUBLISHED 'Standby' rate for their ad. This was not a special deal. With a standby ad, you can't choose your time or placement so you pay a lower price. It's called a 'market price.' I thought you Republicans may have heard of that, before. No? Oh, well. Welcome to reality!

Shuster: Blood for Oil (or the Dirty Fucking Hippies were RIGHT!)

Of course the majority of Americans who opposed this war from the start would not consider themselves hippies, but that is the broad brush of condemnation that the nationalists always try to paint us with. Maybe we should start calling ourselves Smart Fucking Hippies because we were right about most everything in this war, and BushCo was wrong about EVERYTHING!

The Terrorists Have Won.

Stunning Ice Loss In Arctic

From the British paper Guardian Unlimited: "Experts said they were "stunned" by the loss of ice, with an area almost twice as big as Britain disappearing in the last week alone. So much ice has melted this summer that the north-west passage across the top of Canada is fully navigable, and observers say the north-east passage along Russia's Arctic coast could open later this month. If the increased rate of melting continues, the summertime Arctic could be totally free of ice by 2030."

Vital Lockerbie evidence 'was tampered with' - Engineer Admits Lying

Can we believe anything the government says anymore? Could we ever? Now we're learning that the conviction of the Lockerbie bombers was a sham and the bombers may be freed. Ok, so who was really behind the Lockerbie bombing and what was the government trying to hide? Or is this just another case of the police and prosecutors just trying to convict someone of a crime so they won't look unable to solve crimes? It all makes me very, very nervous.
