The Prissy Patriot will return on Sunday
Prissy must say you are a handful Dubya and your "handlers" surely must have their hands full with you these days.
Why there isn't enough money in the world for Prissy to take on that baby-sitting job...she would rather go back to working in maximum security prison with juvenile delinquent boys. Less stressful, for sure.
And all that lying to you-know-who? Having to say "Yes, your poll numbers are up and your war is going well, Massah Boosh"....knowing full well his numbers are running at 2% in the African-American community and Iraq is about to erupt into a full civil and insurgency war-all because we invaded and refuse to leave. And that Massah Boosh.....(that is what Betty and Prissy call him behind his back-then we giggle like school girls)
Almost makes one feel sorry for Scottie McClellon...almost, because he is -next to Ari, one of the best liars Prissy has ever seen. As good as Ari was, Scottie is better...he wants to believe what he is saying is true. He worships and embraces the neoRepublican ideology. Ari was too smart to convince himself he was telling the truth.
Like many others, Ari was also smart enough to get out while the getting was good.....Although Prissy hears that he too, may be caught up in Prosecutor Fitzgerald's net. Time will tell. Prissy cannot imagine his troubles will amount to anything much, in comparison to the rest.
Indeed, little one, babies and grown men too....Bush makes grown men weep for what has become of their beloved country. The ones who are aware of what is really happening to it...This little cherub was protesting in D.C
news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20051013/ap_on_go_pr_wh/bush_iraq_8 Bush Teleconference With Soldiers Staged
Excerpt: Paul Rieckhoff, director of the New York-based Operation Truth, an advocacy group for U.S. veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan, denounced the event as a "carefully scripted publicity stunt." Five of the 10 U.S. troops involved were officers, he said.
"If he wants the real opinions of the troops, he can't do it in a nationally televised teleconference," Rieckhoff said. "He needs to be talking to the boots on the ground and that's not a bunch of captains."
This is not new news readers...it has always happened with this administration. There has never been a time Dubya's photo op's have not been carefully crafted to project an image, because the substance isn't there...as the record shows.
Here's one for Constant and those of you interested in Able Dangerpotomacinstitute.org/media/mediaclips/2005/Able%20Danger%20and%20total%20awareness%20--%20The%20Washington%20Times.pdf Washington Times article- Able Danger and Total Information Awareness
Senator Arlean Spector is asking questions about Able Danger. He seems to think they were spying domestically and this program was quite similar to the Total Information Awareness. The main question is- Was Able Danger created to unlawfully spy on American private citizens? Prissy supports those who want the truth to come out about this program. Contact her if you require publication assistance.
informationclearinghouse.info/article10606.htm Information Clearinghouse-Please Don't Support My Troop by Michael Gaddy
Excerpt: My son returned from Iraq last weekend after a year's service. I confess to breathing much easier now that he is out of that quagmire.
I have a personal request for all of you George W. Bush supporters and Christian warhawks: please do not support my troop. I have visions and aspirations of having him around, seeing him settle down and start a family at some point, and being near as I grow older. Your support would mean that he would be sent back to this war started and continued on lies to become a target for those who would rather live their lives without the interference of a foreign, empire-seeking, new-world-order, invader.
Michael Gaddy, is an U.S. Army veteran of Vietnam, Grenada, and Beirut, lives in the Four Corners area of the American Southwest.

Excerpt: The fog, in this case, is made of the things the administration has said. The facts are the things that they have actually done. If someone sells you a car and you notice that it eats grass and milk is coming out of the exhaust, it's pretty good bet it's a cow.
The War on Terror does not catch terrorists, especially the terrorists who attacked us on 9/11, and the people in charge don't really seem to care. That's with the expenditure of $200 billion in supplementary spending, over and above the normal cost of maintaining our military and intelligence operations.
Let's look at what they actually did, instead of what they spoke of.
That would suggest what the real goals are.
Actions speak louder than words...and indeed the press "fogs" over the facts, thus abdicating their responsibility to the public and their own democracy. So stop waving your flag in Prissy's face, please.... and go read our Constitution.

bellaciao.org/en/article.php3?id_article=8798 Iraqis apprehend two Americans disguised as Arabs trying to detonate a car bomb
So what is this? Is there a British/American effort/collaboration to keep this war going? Or is this propaganda?
This is yet another situation under Dubya's lazy watch, which just screams for an independent investigation....God help him should there be any truth to this; the American people will devour him. They grow more weary of the deception daily...
Prissy cannot believe this boff boy still even mentions the White House in his writings... jeffgannon.com/
Gannon, as you will recall, was the male prostitute found to be working in the White House press corp. He tossed them softball questions until he was tossed out.
A favorite of someone in the White House, Jeffey had the run of the place..."forgetting" to sign in and out. So much for security. RAW Story posted the Secret Service security logs online. Bloggers had the goods on him, the msm finally caught on.
They do love a sex scandal, they find it far more entertaining than reporting real news...but even one as scandalous as this wasn't done justice, except in the alternative "new" mainstream news.
markarkleiman.com/archives/valerie_plame_/2005/07/no_crime_in_the_plame_case_thats_not_what_the_judge_thinks.php Mark A. R. Kleiman-A weblog for the reality-based community. "No crime" in the Plame case? That's not what the judge thinks
Excerpt: Those who have been hoping since the summer of 2003 that whoever outed Valerie Plame as a CIA undercover operative wouldn't go to jail for it -- and that, as a result, the Bush Administration wouldn't get the black eye its conduct has earned -- have been relentlessly pushing the line that no crime was committed by the revelation.
bellaciao.org/en/article.php3?id_article=8768 Bellaiao- No Will, No Backbone:Washington's War Dems by Joshua Frank
Excerpt: What a load of bull. The American public, although slow to digest the truth about the Iraq war, is finally coming around. Yet the Democratic Party has nothing to offer in return. Even with nearly 2,000 U.S. soldiers and countless civilians dead, the Dems still want to stay the failing course in Iraq. It's all about winning political campaigns, not justice -- never mind that the Dems can't even win a match that's been forfeited by the Republicans. The liberal establishment is beyond inept; it's hopeless.
Anti-war crusader Cindy Sheehan recently told me that she thought the Democrats should be abandoned. "I will not support a pro-war Democrat [in the upcoming elections] ... I regret supporting John Kerry in 2004," she said, "[t]he movement gained nothing from his candidacy." Later, in piece titled "War-Hawk Republicans and Anti-War Democrats: What's the Difference?," Sheehan wrote, "I think if one is not speaking out right now against the killing in Iraq, one is supporting it."
Prissy will third that motion....Cindy you are a trooper. Military Families all over the world owe you the debt of gratitude for what you chose to do. You did not have to force America to look at the truth....but you did. Thank you; as history will prove, your personal actions and great sacrifice will save many lives.
cryptome.org/niger-docs.htm Images of the forged Nigerien documents published in Italy 27 July 2003.
Where did the Italians get them? Don't know...some say from us. Prissy's guess is two men who usually have their secretaries do their typing, made them. And you know what they call that...It is a very poor quality forgery, according to most experts.
Watch Scottie get his feathers ruffled... editorandpublisher.com/eandp/news/article_display.jsp?vnu_content_id=1001305789 Scott McClellan Says Helen Thomas Opposes 'War on Terrorism'
McCLELLAN: Well, Helen, the President recognizes that we are engaged in a global war on terrorism. And when you're engaged in a war, it's not always pleasant, and it's certainly a last resort. But when you engage in a war, you take the fight to the enemy, you go on the offense. And that's exactly what we are doing. We are fighting them there so that we don't have to fight them here. September 11th taught us --
THOMAS It has nothing to do with -- Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11.
McCLELLAN: Well, you have a very different view of the war on terrorism, and I'm sure you're opposed to the broader war on terrorism. The President recognizes this requires a comprehensive strategy, and that this is a broad war, that it is not a law enforcement matter.
Scottie, terrorism is a law enforcement issue and a political one.
And one more....
http://news.independent.co.uk/uk/politics/article319542.eceThatcher reveals her doubts over basis for Iraq war
Excerpt:Although Lady Thatcher remains a strong supporter of the decision to topple Saddam by invading Iraq, it is the first time she has questioned the basis for the war. Yesterday's Washington Post reported that when asked whether she would have invaded Iraq given the intelligence at the time, Lady Thatcher replied: "I was a scientist before I was a politician. And as a scientist I know you need facts, evidence and proof - and then you check, recheck and check again."
She added: "The fact was that there were no facts, there was no evidence, and there was no proof. As a politician the most serious decision you can take is to commit your armed services to war from which they may not return."
Quotes of the Day:
Too bad the only people who know how to run the country are busy driving cabs and cutting hair. ~George Burns
Get your facts first, and then you can distort them as much as you please.-Mark Twain
I thoroughly disapprove of duels. If a man should challenge me, I would take him kindly and forgivingly by the hand and lead him to a quiet place and kill him.-Mark Twain
I'm completely in favor of the separation of Church and State. My idea is that these two institutions screw us up enough on their own, so both of them together is certain death.
