Co-Sponsor Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) Offers Lame Excuse For Contraception Bills S. 2043 and S. 1467
(1 comments) Given this logic, I suppose Saxby Chambliss believes that Americans who are morally opposed to civil rights for all Americans would be allowed to discriminate against minorities with such acts as such re-segregating lunch counters and schools? If the government is going to acknowledge the 'moral convictions' of one religious group, what is to stop them from writing laws taking into account every religions' "convictions?"

10th Anniversary of PDB "Osama Determined To Strike in US"
(1 comments) Excerpt: "We have not been able to corroborate some of the more sensational threat reporting, such as that from a -- service in 1998 saying that Bin Laden wanted to hijack a U.S. aircraft to gain the release of "Blind Sheikh" Omar Abdel Rahman and other U.S.-held extremists. Nevertheless, FBI information since that time indicates patterns of suspicious activity in this country consistent with preparations for hijackings...

Let Us Have Some Fun! Take a Guess at the Identity of the 'Congressman' NSA Attempted to Wiretap
(22 comments) Life's a crap shoot! As the blogsphere begins the guessing game, I thought I'd ask OEN readers to weigh in with their best guess. So, which 'Congressman' do you think Bush and Cheney wanted to get some bad 'goods' on bad enough to violate the legislative branch with an illegal wiretap? After the who, feel free to venture into the why and how you think the information would be used? Blackmail, prosecution, or what?

It could be a helluva season agin, Brownie...
The season is fast approaching - June -and the Bush FEMA Hurricane Emergency Plan is not ready. "A modified version of the plan in place during Katrina will be followed" instead. Meanwhile, Americans have just learned Bush rejected $800 million in foreign aid after Katrina in 2005. 'Brownie' screwup or another 'secret' policy that makes no sense.

His questioning and pictorial display of the chaotic management of the Justice Dept under Gonzales was groundbreaking and the most revealing evidence yet of how politicized our legal system has become. It depicts exactly who in the WH and DoJ were authorized to communicate with each other.

Prosecute Bush's Illegal Spying Locally
(4 comments) Press YOUR courts into action where ever possible. If domestic spying took place in San Fran, prosecute the bastards there, locally. It's illegal in CA just like it is in the other 49 states. Local media will cover it. Plenty of liberal media will travel to it. Blogs will herald this 'real' news of a democracy rediscovering itself. And the main stream will follow.

Why Is It Christians Need So Gawd Damn Much Saving?
(1 comments) With all their brow-beating and blood-thrust, how different are these extremist Christians and their demands for total submission than the "Cripps" and "Bloods" who are considered menaces to society? More humans have entered mortal combat in the name of Christianity than that any other earthly collective, and traditionally rely largely on conscription and intimidation to fill their army's ranks. And why is Alito the latest saviour?
