Billary Hates the Truth Part II

Bill is a huge ass:

A spokesman for Mr. Clinton said the former president knew that Mr. Giustra had mining interests in Kazakhstan but was unaware of “any particular efforts” and did nothing to help. Mr. Giustra said he was there as an “observer only” and there was “no discussion” of the deal with Mr. Nazarbayev or Mr. Clinton.

But Moukhtar Dzhakishev, president of Kazatomprom, said in an interview that Mr. Giustra did discuss it, directly with the Kazakh president, and that his friendship with Mr. Clinton “of course made an impression.” Mr. Dzhakishev added that Kazatomprom chose to form a partnership with Mr. Giustra’s company based solely on the merits of its offer.

Billary Hates History, and Truth

NYT rocked some heavy research:

"But in the several weeks since, history books have been cracked, archives searched. And Americans have been reminded that President Johnson and Dr. King worked in tandem not only on the Civil Rights Act, but on the Voting Rights Act that came the next year. The following transcription is of an excerpt from a telephone call the president made to Dr. King on Jan. 15, 1965, two months before the Selma-to-Montgomery march, seven months before the Voting Rights Act was signed into law. The president made the call from his ranch in Johnson City, Tex. (and Dr. King was unaware of the taping). The two were discussing strategy before the president submitted his proposal to Congress."

DR. KING And it’s very interesting, Mr. President, to notice, that the only states that you didn’t carry in the South, five Southern states, have less than 40 percent of the Negroes registered to vote. Very interesting to note it. I think a professor in the University of Texas in a recent article brought this out very clearly. So it demonstrates that it’s so important to get Negroes registered to vote in large numbers in the South, and it would be this coalition of the Negro vote and the moderate white vote that will really make the new South.

PRESIDENT JOHNSON That’s exactly right. I think it’s very important that we not say we’re doing this and we’re not doing, just because it’s Negroes and whites, but we take the position that every person born in this country when he reaches a certain age that he have a right to vote, just like he has a right to fight, and that we just extend it to whether it’s a Negro, whether it’s a Mexican, or who it is.

It is Only a Matter of Time Before the American Gladiators Start Killing People

The NYT reviews Fox's new Orwellian nightmare:

"The Colombian version was canceled in October after a woman confessed on the show that she had hired someone to kill her husband."

"“The Moment of Truth,” though, brings loved ones onstage to stir up hostility. On Wednesday’s premiere George, a racetrack marketing manager, was solemnly asked by the host, Mark L. Walberg, if he wears a hairpiece (yes), whether he had ever had a sexual fantasy while attending Mass (yes) and whether he has a gambling problem (yes) — as his boss, his girlfriend and his girlfriend’s uncle looked on."

Al Gore: History's Greatest Monster

5:30 PM Tony Perkis: even in a sports leadership class I manage to get in political debates, I made someone mad because I bashed Al Gore and said the best thing he's done in the past 10 years was guest voice on futurama
5:33 PM Snowflake Tears that is correct
Tony Perkis: I was going to use manbearpig but I figured one cartoon reference was enough

Country Embraces Economic Stimulus Package

Fontes: Sounds like we'll be getting a tax rebate. I'm going to buy booze and Bibles with it.

Snowflake Tears: buy drugs, stuff that cant be taxed.

Fontes: My dad had surgery and was telling me about his pain pills. I told him to sell them. He was laughing. Little did he know I was interested in buying. I'll trade him smokes and Old Mud for Vicodin.

Slate's: Hillary's Inner Tracy Flick

Immune Systems Hate Gay Dudes. Doi. They also make the black baby jesus cry.

I go to this website before i go to the NYT every day, its where one can get the crazy news. I am not sure gay dudes mimic anything, in fact unless your lady has ovaries in her pooper, its us who mimic them. They got their own thing going on.

"The human body is quite callous in how it handles mistreatment and
the perversion of its natural functions," said Barber. "When two men
mimic the act of heterosexual intercourse with one another, they
create an environment, a biological counterfeit, wherein disease can
thrive. Unnatural behaviors beget natural consequences."

"Foreman says these jobs are going boys and they ain't coming back..."

This is a beautiful article. I often think of those jobs that Romney will 'fight for'. Why should a factory worker have two SUVs, a house in the suburbs, a cottage in the northern part of the state, and a boat? The UAW and Big Three inflated wages and thus the standard of living
here to preposterous levels.

And - what self-respecting UAW member 20 years ago was thinking - boy I hope my son/daughter can get a job here when they turn 18? If they were smart, and therefore not expecting 'protection', they would have sent them off to college so that they could work in a different industry.

KT likes cheap stuff.

Coffers or coffins

The President told his favorite interviewer that a primary aim for his post-presidential life will be to "replinish the ol' coffers" (link).

Maybe he can slice away a few moments from a hectic speech schedule to address the domestic destruction caused by soldiers who have returned home to find themselves evil shells of themselves. (A series this week from the NYT should send some light on how widespread and sad these conditions are.) The psychological care and family counseling that is necessary could be assisted by such an esteemed spokesman.

KT, without sounding worse than the 'brown shirts'can say that GW is an accessory to the trauma.

Say goodbye to your airports and your freeedom.


Millions of air travelers may find going through airport security much more complicated this spring, as the Bush administration heads toward a showdown with state governments over post-Sept. 11 rules for new driver's licenses. By May, the dispute could leave millions of people unable to use their licenses to board planes, but privacy advocates called that a hollow threat by federal officials.


"The last thing I want to do is punish citizens of a state who would love to have a REAL ID license but can't get one," Chertoff said. "But in the end, the rule is the rule as passed by Congress."

So far, 17 states have passed legislation or resolutions objecting to the REAL ID Act's provisions, many due to concerns it will cost them too much to comply. The 17, according to the ACLU, are Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Maine, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee and Washington.

"Are they really prepared to shut those airports down? Which is what effectively would happen if the residents of those states are going to have to go through secondary scrutiny," said Barry Steinhardt, director of the ACLU's technology and liberty program. "This is a scare tactic.
