BUGMAN BEGONE!


BUGMAN BEGONE!

Quote of the Day:

"If This Is Integrity - "Delay, Frist, Abramoff,
Safavian... Wasn't this the crowd that was going to "restore honor and
integrity" to Washington? If this is what integrity looks like, let's
bring back Oval Office blow jobs." -- Arianna Huffington

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Americans, for far too long, have had sex in their face, everywhere they look... TV, Magazines, Books, Movies... mostly BECAUSE IT SELLS...!!!

Then all of a sudden, A President had a "NOBODY'S BUSINESS" affair and they got so unduly offended, A FREE FOR ALL BROKE OUT TO IMPEACH THE LIBERTINE... now THEY have crooks, thieves, highwaymen, plunderers, larcenists in high places... I HOPE THEY'RE HAPPY WITH THEIR BAND OF SURREPTITIOUS BRIGANDS ... Though, you know, THEY (especially the Pat Robertson JESUS FREAKS) probably would rather have these mobsters ruling them because the whole pack keeps sputtering "GOD BLESS", "JESUS THIS & JESUS THAT" AND OF COURSE, GOOD OLE RELIABLE ... "GOD BLESS AMERICA"... It's EMETIC with a capital "V" !!!

Below is an article that SAYS IT ALL! ThinkingBlue

word of the day from dictionary.com

emetic n. An agent (like Tom Delay) that causes vomiting.

Immoral Majority
By Eugene Robinson
The Washington Post
Friday 30 September 2005

What's the difference between the Republican Party then and the Republican Party now? Here's an illustration: Richard Nixon was the president who established the Environmental Protection Agency. Tom "The Hammer" DeLay is the congressman who called the EPA a latter-day
"Gestapo."

Gestapo n.
1.
The German internal
security police as organized under the Nazi regime, known for its
terrorist methods directed against those suspected of treason or
questionable loyalty.

So pardon me for going way beyond schadenfreude to outright giddiness at the
prospect that the Hammer will finally get nailed.

schadenfreude n.
Pleasure derived from the misfortunes of others.

It may be too much to hope that the former House majority leader - and how good it feels to write "former" - will actually be convicted and do jail time. The indictment for criminal conspiracy returned by a Texas grand jury on Wednesday is for alleged campaign finance violations that are the rough equivalent of money
laundering, which is not the easiest crime to prove in court.

But DeLay's problems are bigger than Texas. His golf-buddy relationship
with Jack Abramoff, a fat-cat lobbyist under federal indictment, will
face months of scrutiny. DeLay's resignation from the House leadership
is supposed to be temporary, but Republicans ignored his wishes and
picked a strong successor who could serve out the rest of this Congress
if necessary. Clearly they believe their former leader will be
distracted for some time.

Which makes me feel like it's morning again in America.


DeLay, because he's such a ruthlessly effective bully, has been as
responsible as anyone for pushing his party to the end of the political
spectrum previously reserved for the
anti-everything, loony-bin far right. His comeuppance is an occasion to remind ourselves just

what a long, strange
trip it's been.

There was a time when the conservative movement in this country was the
preserve of principled eccentrics such as Barry Goldwater. These days Goldwater would be thought of as a libertarian more than anything else, a firm believer that what people really needed was a good leaving-alone. In his prime, he occupied fringe territory that was light-years from the mainstream.

Ronald Reagan changed everything, shifting the nation's center of gravity to the right. In retrospect, whatever you thought of Reagan's policies - and I didn't like them - the man at least had a certain generosity of spirit. His idea of the black experience in America may have been Sammy Davis Jr.'s career, his views of women may have been antediluvian and his impression of gay people may have come exclusively from dining with Nancy's friends, but at least he had some experience of people unlike himself and an appreciation of their humanity.

antediluvian adj.
1.
Extremely old and antiquated. See Synonyms at
old.

The crowd now in control of Washington, thanks in part to DeLay's undeniable skills, could best be described as Reagan's illegitimate heirs.

Theirs is a greedy, small-minded conservatism. In their policies, they seek not to improve government, and certainly not to shrink it, but to ruin it - to starve the regulatory agencies with tax cuts, then spend so wildly on pork that there's nothing left to pay for actual government work such as, say, preparing for a hurricane.

The Republican Party's "small government" rhetoric is hilarious, but while you're laughing, keep a grip on your wallet. Since 2000, the number of registered lobbyists in Washington has more than doubled, to an astonishing 34,750. That's a lot of mouths at the trough.






DeLay and Co. don't just want to bankrupt the government, they want to
force the whole country to conform to their "moral" prescriptions. On
private matters such as abortion, homosexuality, religion, even
end-of-life decisions, they demand that all of us do as they say. When
it comes to the millions who lack health insurance, though, or to
persistent poverty in the inner cities - well, those problems are for
individuals and "faith-based" institutions to grapple with as best they can.

DeLay was clever enough to see that if a few more safe GOP seats could
be engineered in Texas, Democrats would need a tidal wave of votes to
regain control. The political action committee he formed to get these
seats redistricted into existence, Texans for a Republican Majority,
came under the scrutiny of the Travis County district attorney, Ronnie
Earle, and that scrutiny led to DeLay's indictment.

I like the irony that DeLay may end up a victim of hubris - that his
downfall may result from his efforts to perpetuate his awful legacy. But
if it comes from the Abramoff probe or somewhere else, I won't complain.
He doesn't even have to go to jail; he can just go back to killing bugs
in Houston. Just as long as he goes. This will be a better country when
that "former" in front of his title is permanent.

Click here to hear "JAILHOUSE ROCK" song by ELVIS

(words & music by jerry leiber - mike stoller)



The warden threw a party in the county jail

The prison band was there and they began to wail

The band was jumpin' and the joint began to swing

You should've heard them knocked out jailbirds sing


Let's rock, everybody, let's rock

Everybody in the whole cell block

Was dancin' to the Jailhouse Rock


Spider Murphy played the tenor saxophone

Little Joe was blowin' on the slide trombone

The drummer boy from Illinois went crash, boom, bang

The whole rhythm section was the Purple Gang


Let's rock, everybody, let's rock

Everybody in the whole cell block

Was dancin' to the Jailhouse Rock


Number forty-seven said to number three

"You're the cutest jailbird I ever did see"

"I sure would be delighted with your company"

"Come on and do the Jailhouse Rock with me"


Let's rock, everybody, let's rock

Everybody in the whole cell block

Was dancin' to the Jailhouse Rock


Sad sack was sittin' on a block of stone

Way over in the corner weepin' all alone.

The warden said, "Hey, buddy, don't you be no square

"If you can't find a partner use a wooden chair"...


TOM DELAY
WAS Dancin' to the Jailhouse Rock
