Neighborhing yard signs for George W. Bush and...

I’ve gotta agree with the folks at Daffodil Lane. Kerry is kicking a**! He is a smart, intelligent man. Bush kept repeating the same thing over and over…It was almost uncomfortable to watch.

The scary thing is that I think his tactic worked, well for some. I am watching c-span right now and there are these drones calling in saying exactly the same thing Bush said! Ugh!

My husband just turned the channel and someone is interviewing Karl Rove. God. And the spin begins.

Another View: Why I will vote for John Kerry for President By John Eisenhower

The Union Leader and New Hampshire Sunday News – 30-Sep-04 – Another View:
Why I will vote for John Kerry for President

The fact is that today’s “Republican Party” is one with which I am totally unfamiliar. To me, the word “Republican” has always been synonymous with the word “responsibility”, which has meant limiting our governmental obligations to those we can afford in human and financial terms. Today’s whopping budget deficit of some $440 billion does not meet that criterion.

This is an interesting article written by a Republican, and the son of Republican President, Dwight D. Eisenhower. He talks about why the current “Republican” party (aka neo-cons?) is not really even really republican.

Last night on C-Span I watched this discussion/debate between Al Gore and Bob Dole. I have to say that while I totally disagree with everything Dole said, I really respect him. He can have a political discussion with another democrat without any sarcasim, backbiting, or arrogance. And Al Gore was the same way. It was amazing to watch. You could tell that these men actually liked each other. Dole even stuck up for Gore when an audience member used his time to ask a quesiton to attack Gore. It was really refresing to see this kind of behavior out of two politicians. After four years of the Bush administration I was starting feel a lot of negativity toward Rebublicans, but I don’t think it’s the republicans that I should be negative toward. I think that true republicans are just as sick of Bush as liberals are. He isn’t even representing them.

Bush has no regrets. It’s regretful.

Politics News Article | Reuters.com| Bush: Would give ‘Mission Accomplished’ speech again.

President Bush said he had no regrets about donning a flight suit to give his “Mission Accomplished” speech on Iraq in May 2003 and would do it all over again if he had the chance, according to excerpts from an television interview released on Sunday.

Are you kidding me? Thousands upon thousands of people have died and he has “no regrets”?!? This is an outrage. He might as well spit on the graves of the over 1,000 soldiers that have died for NOTHING. Everytime Bush opens his mouth I am utterly sickened.

I was watching the local public access channel last night and they were broadcasting a speech that Amy Goodman from Democracy Now was giving at the Rio Theater, just down the street from my house here in Santa Cruz. She was talking about how the American media has put a veneer on this war that romanicizes it. She compared images from CNN America that showed soilders standing in the sunset, and then she showed images that CNN broadcasted in Iraq of the bodies of dead children, or with limbs blown off. Homes utterly destroyed. One image in particular that made me physically ill was a poor child who had been injured from a bomb, his arm was charred black and his hand had been blown off. Jutting out from the charred black skin was the bone where the upper part of his arm had once been. THIS WAS A CHILD! I saw that and the breath was knocked out of me for a moment. It was horrible. But you know what? These are the images of the Iraq war. This is what we are doing over there. We are killing children. We are maiming children. Over 14,000 Iraqi civilians dead. It’s horrifying. And what do we see in the media? These romanticized pictures of soilders standing in the Sunset. And the young American people we are sending over there…..They are the ones who have to live with the horror of killing these poor innocents. THEY have to live with this. It’s like this one soldier said in MM’s film Farenheight 9/11: “When you kill someone, part of your soul is taken away.”

I’m sorry to get on my soapbox but this whole thing is getting to me. It’s sick. But what is even more sick are the freaking conservative drones that follow Bush and think it’s okay to kill over 14,000 innocent people – including children. People need to wake the hell up in this country! Wake up! This killing has got to stop!

Guardian Unlimited | Special reports | How Bush’s grandfather helped Hitler’s rise to power

His business dealings, which continued until his company’s assets were seized in 1942 under the Trading with the Enemy Act, has led more than 60 years later to a civil action for damages being brought in Germany against the Bush family by two former slave labourers at Auschwitz and to a hum of pre-election controversy.

The evidence has also prompted one former US Nazi war crimes prosecutor to argue that the late senator’s action should have been grounds for prosecution for giving aid and comfort to the enemy.

This is a fascinating article. Apparently, two Halocaust survivors are planning on suing the Bush family for damages since Prescott Bush was in business with some German companies that backed Nazi Germany. The article also says that Grandaddy Bush made most of the family fortune this way.

The reasons for not voting for Bush keep piling up. It’s embarrassing to have a president whose family has a connection to Nazi Germany.

Bush policy brings the world on his back

Yahoo! News – Bush policy brings the world on his back

Arrogant, aggressive, too unilateralist are just some of the terms used to describe the US administration.

Opinion polls taken around the world confirmed the dim view of the US leader and his policies, which is most notable among traditional allies in Europe and the Arab world.

Well, no surprise here. I thought his speech to the UN was arrogant. I’m sure the UN delegate thought so too.
