A Hopeless Legion of Loons
If we have learned but one thing from these fools, it is that they will not compromise, regardless of the destruction they leave in their wake. Therefore, we need to wake up and realize that the November 2012 election is quite likely a matter of life or death.

Occupy -- Shudder to Tremor to Tsunami
The Occupy Movement began as a slight shudder on Wall Street. It was soon a tremor, billowing out across the nation, and beyond. It has become a tsunami in California as a result of brutal treatment of police on courageous University of California at Davis students who sat peacefully in protest.
Confession of an old War Hawk...
Once upon a time, long ago and far away, when I was a (civilian) Public Information Officer for the U.S. Army, I was like a modern-day Donald Rumsfeld -- in love with the beautiful, shiny, erotic toys of war. The devastation caused by these toys to the "boys" of war was light years away from even approaching the periphery of my understanding.

Politics -- Spinning Out of Control
I have a real problem with Democrats who refuse to get off their knees long enough to stand up for what they believe in. What do they believe in? Community organizing? Democrats are not evil; they really really want to do what is right, but with few exceptions, they are timid, hypocritical little cave-inskis when it comes to walking their talk. They take the money and call it bipartisanship. I call it betrayal.

Hey, American People!
We are in the throes of a political convulsion, an intellectual and moral battle that we are increasingly in danger of losing. It's time to stop, take a deep national breath, and then...take a deep national bath. This nation has been in a spiraling nose dive for a decade...

Only If We Let It
History. Round and round it goes. Will the US and Israel attack Iran? Will history repeat itself? Yes, but only if we let it. The choice is ours.

The Glory of White-Wing Politics
Americans -- not just Democrats -- must find the courage to shout "No! No! Hell No!" to the destruction planned for this republic. Unless we stand up, shake ourselves off, and dare to fight back, the evil glory of White-Wing Politics will devour us. We have no choice. Because this ship is going down.

Even One of These Little Ones...
these pedophile preachers have indelibly tarnished the image of the entire Church. It's time for the empty accusations, excuses and justifications to stop. I agree with Stephen King, who wrote on page 922 of his latest thriller -- Under the Dome -- "When the Devil got a preacher, he was apt to fall low -- low enough to put on a top hat and crawl under a rattlesnake."

Keep the Change...
These guys aren't crazy -- okay, maybe they are -- but they know exactly what they're doing. They learned from eight years of K-K-Karl Rove and Dick Cheney that fear and hate are the two easiest emotions to work with.

Walk a Mile...
It's time for Obama to put aside empty, soaring speeches and come to grips with who his enemies really are. It's time for him to step onto dry land and walk a mile in his own shoes -- while he still has a pair.

God Has Left the Building...
The religious believe that God belongs to them. Christians know that they belong to God. It's that simple. Thus, CNN polls notwithstanding, America cannot become "less Christian" as a result of members of the flock jerking the tags from their ears -- and rejecting modern-day religion.

Rack 'em and Screw 'em, Boys!
What is more frightening -- that the C.I.A. got its jollies by torturing, even murdering human beings in its secret sodomy frat-houses -- or that the F.B.I. took one look and fled the scene and remained silent for years?

Seeds of Truth
This goes way beyond garnering profits for agriculture conglomerates such as Monsanto. It is about disrupting the natural order of life -- whether plant or animal. And, for those orchestrating this havoc, it is about control.

It's Time for the Madness to Stop
The most ghastly experiment conducted was Operation Crossroads, a series of "Manhattan Project" tests in 1946 to study the effects of nuclear weapons on ships and equipment. US officials knew the effect of massive radiation on human beings. They had to know. So what else were the thousands of navy personnel positioned on ships from five to eight miles from the Bikini Atoll bomb site in the central Pacific if not guinea pigs?

Through a Hole in the Air...
The fascist lies and smears of Republicans and their doppleganger radio creeps should come as no surprise to those paying attention. However, the ripples of uneasiness and fear surging through Democratic ranks as a result of these assaults is a bit puzzling. Perhaps it's because after eight years of covering--and uncovering--deceit, lies, and monstrous war crimes of George Bush, they are hesitant to trust any president.

The Peter Principle Playoffs
We need to get our minds around who is the aggressor here. Because if we continue to passively watch the evil unfold; if Dick Cheney wins the behind-the-scenes, off-court power struggle, the Peter Principle Playoffs will be over and the entire Middle East will explode in nuclear flames.

We are under the control of the criminally insane. Cheney has turned the greatest democratic republic ever conceived into a world corporation and anointed himself its Chief Executive Officer (CEO). He has supplanted two centuries of protections afforded by the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights with executive orders and secret laws.

What It's All About...
The media is determined to choose the president no matter what voters want. Little by little, the media has inserted itself into the process until elections are no longer about candidates or issues. They're about the media and what the media thinks about candidates and issues.

Traffic Jam on the Highway to Hell
Our government is nothing but a Good Ol' Boys and Girls club, with judges, journalists, legislators and administration jesters whooping it up while pillaging the Treasury, ignoring cries of their victims, turning a blind eye to slaughtered and displaced innocents, and sending thousands of their own citizens to their deaths. They have mauled, raped and obstructed Justice until that once noble Lady is no longer recognizable.

A Christmas Story
I had this bright idea to get a head start on the new year by testing the strength of the Equal Rights Amendment -- you know, the ERA -- the free pass that enterprising women have used for years to back stubborn men into corners...

Culling the Herd
It doesn't take a wild imagination to know that genocide is real, and it's underway in America. The most blatant example is the barbaric response to Hurricane Katrina victims -- withholding food, blocking aid, ignoring those clinging to rooftops while crying out in vain for help, leaving corpses to float in the flooded streets or to rot in the Superdome.

The Last Founder Standing
Al Gore is a Tom Paine, a Paul Revere, who tells us it is time to stand again for freedom. Gore is for the people, he is of the people who long to rekindle the true spirit of America -- and he will be re-elected by the people--because he is the last Founder standing.

In The Kingdom of Fear
There is good reason for Americans to be scared, for as George Orwell said, "It does not matter if the war is not real, or when it is, victory is not possible. The war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continous...The war is waged by the ruling group against its subjects."

Gonzo Boogie -- As Easy as ABC
Nothing will change with Gonzales' departure, because each candidate on Bush's attorney general list is Gonzo "squared" -- each one committed to do the Gonzo Boogie from now until January 2009. Until then, the Democrats will continue to struggle with their attention-deficit disorder (ADD), and the American people will sink deeper into the morass of national post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Ah, Democracy, We Hardly Knew Ye...
It is madness to stand upon the precipice of a Constitutional crisis and even consider for one moment plunging into the abyss by giving Bush additional time to spy on Americans, to torture and kill innocents abroad, and to abandon an exhausted and ill-equipped military on the killing fields of a nation embroiled in the spiraling violence of civil war.

Bush's Booming Economy -- For The Rich
When George Bush brags that the economy is booming, he's probably right. The economy is exploding with a big boom, and we are in a great battle to see how long this country can endure.

Something Happened on 9-11
Something happened on 9-11 -- something so horrible that the American people acquiesced for a time in their own subjection. They will not succumb to their own destruction. Enough is enough.

STRIKE THE ROOT!
We must rid ourselves of the traitors in our midst, starting with impeaching Dick Cheney, the one man responsible for the corruption threatening our downfall. If we are to survive, we must strike the root.

All They Have Is Each Other...
There is no honor in a nation whose leaders are given the power to choose life or death for their fellow citizens held captive in an illegal, treasonous, bloody occupation -- and choose death. What do you do after betraying those who trusted you -- dash off to Greenland to check on the climate, or do you stand in the Senate, eyes downcast, tail between your legs?

When We Forget to Remember...
Bush's war is but another "option on the table" to keep the populace cowering in irrational fear for political gain. Neither side seems willing to admit there's a big difference, both legal and ethical, between asking citizens to die for their country -- and demanding they "kill" for their country...

DARE TO LOOK BACK
We are in the clutches of an evil, evil group of psychopaths -- warmongering moral cowards whose faux leader, George W. Bush, is a shallow, self-destructive little bully who deserted his military post during a time of war. Damn them. Damn them all.

SURVIVING AT THE PLEASURE OF THE PRESIDENT
The American people have no idea what they're up against. The war being waged throughout the world began here at home, and the US Constitution and Bill of Rights were its first victims.

Lost in the Lust of Werewolves
Victims of Bush's war -- Iraqi and American -- are little more than debris scattered in the wake of the werewolves' lust to dominate the world and control its resources.

CHIMPS IN A ZOO CAGE
The U.S. media is beneath contempt, and can never redeem itself for the damage it has wrought on this republic by its fawning allegience to a band of crooked, war-mongering fools.

NO WAY IN -- NO WAY OUT...
Americans who cherish freedom would do well to stop stumbling around in the trees and forests of the illegal immigration debate and see that the Bush administration is well on its way to closing the borders of the entire nation, not only to people trying to get in, but to citizens trying to get out.

Will Stinky Cut The Big One?
Most of us stopped laughing at Bush's coarse antics long ago. The boastful sound and fury of hot air blasting from both ends of this crude, immature thug as he rips one windy flatulent speech after another while saying absolutely nothing is not only vulgar, but is indescribably evil.

NO PEACE, NO PLACE FOR PALESTINE
Those damn Palestinians, always making those seizing their land -- those killing and maiming them -- look bad. Why do they stubbornly insist on forcing Israel and the United States to commit war crimes and crimes against humanity?

GIVE US THE WORD
We are all that stand between George Bush and the ransacking of this great nation. We must not wake up the day after the elections and realize -- too late -- that we failed to vote when "Democracy" was the single most important issue on the ballot.

It was brutal -- an unexpected, crippling blow to the midsection, and tens of thousands of late-night AAR listeners reeled from the shock of having Mike Malloy ripped unceremoniously from their midst.
Wednesday, September 27, 2006(2 comments)
George Bush is obsessed with "September the 11th" -- so much so that he cannot force himself to refer to it as a mere 9-11. He revels in the delightful horror of that dreadful day upon which he became The Decider, the commander-in-chief -- history's most important war president.

We were warned every step of the way. We have been insulted and deceived, our courts dismantled, our Congress neutered, our children murdered in an illegal, genocidal halocaust, our elections stolen, our tax dollars wasted. Today, we are stranded on our own rooftops, pleading for a November 2006 rescue.

To Bush, "support the troops" means don't criticize him when thousands of Americans and hundreds of thousands of innocents die in an illegal, bloody mess that he lied to get us into.

NATURE OF THE BEAST
After the orchestrated 9-11 attack on New York City and Washington D.C., and its follow-up anthrax attack on Democratic legislators, Americans of all stripes rushed en masse to George Bush's Fools' Gate to trade their morality and compassion for empty promises of security.

THOMPSON'S DOG WON'T HUNTCapitol Hill Blue's Doug Thompson says he's flown Boeing flight simulators, and "maneuvers made by the 9/11 hijackers were simple course corrections, not really that difficult. Well, I've never flown a simulator, but I once knew a guy who practiced riding skills on a mechanical bull, but when he hit the rodeo circuit, he got his ass stomped in two seconds flat.

9/11 -- Eliminating the Impossible
The truth is what it is. It can never be something else. A search for the truth about 9-11 is much easier if all that cannot be true is tossed out. Why waste time considering the impossible?

WITH FRIENDS LIKE THESE...
Americans don't know Jack about who controls this country. Israel may be our partner in crime; may be sucking us dry; prodding us to fight its battles -- but the United Arab Emirates, "entities" like the Carlyle Group and Halliburton, and the administration globalization gurus are in control and, as Sam Peckinpah so aptly put it -- they're blowin' this town all to hell.

YOU CAN'T GO HOME AGAIN...
President Bush summons former secretaries of state and defense to the White House to share the glory -- and the blame. Those of us who know Bush is raving mad, destructively impulsive and totally incompetent suspect he was lining up former heavyweights to take the blame when the melt-down comes.
