White House expresses confidence in top Bush aide – Yahoo! News

The White House broke its silence and said on Tuesday that President Bush continued to have confidence in his top political adviser, Karl Rove, despite his involvement in a scandal over the leak of the identity of a CIA agent.

So Rove is going to walk, if Bush has his way. Bush is a friggen criminal, too. I’m so tired of this corrupt administration. I’m tired of this “stick together no matter what” mentality of the Republican party. We have a person who committed a felony, risking the security of a CIA agent, and possibly thwarting an important mission, at the side of the President, and the Repugs are sticking by him, for the sake of partisan politics. Just because he is a republican, they are going to allow him to get away with this. Aren’t they getting sick, yet, of associating with this corruption?

church members ousted for not supporting Bush


CNN.com – Ousted church members ponder next move – May 7, 2005

A pastor who led a charge to kick out nine church members who refused to support President Bush was the talk of the town Saturday in this mountain hamlet, with ousted congregants considering hiring a lawyer.

I meant to blog about this the other day because it made me so mad. Thanks, Christie, for mentioning it. This is in the same vein as the Bush fish a couple of posts down. And some people think we don’t live in a theocracy?!? It’s scarily looking like it’s getting closer and closer to that. If this church does NOT pay for this legally, then it will become quite apparent that we are moving scarily close to a theocracy. I mean, think about it. If these people don’t side with Bush, they can’t be a part of the church. It’s wrong. And the fact that I am sitting here writing “this is wrong” is just craziness. I shouldn’t have to say that. It should be obvious to all Americans that this should not be happening in this country.

Yahoo! News – Bush Urges Iraqis to Vote, Lowers Expectations

Bush also expressed sadness over the crash of a U.S. helicopter in western Iraq that news reports said killed 31 American Marines. Five more U.S. troops died in insurgent attacks on Wednesday.

He did?!? I certainly didn’t hear any “sadness”. You gotta love the media spin.

I listened to the press conference this morning. Not because I wanted to ( I can’t stand the sound of Bush’s voice). It happened to be on while I was getting ready for work. I think he set some new lows with this one. For example, the answer to the helicopter crash…..He couldn’t fake a better answer to that question? He said someting about looking into the facts. That was it. And the answer to the questions regarding the growing opposition to the Iraq war in America. His answer, as always, “the world is a better place without Saddam.” Uh, yeah…That’s true, but it still doesn’t change the fact THAT WE WERE MISLED INTO THIS WAR!!!

I was so mad I flipped the radio off! God, and we have four more years of this clown…

four. more. years. playlist

Books, Music, Art, Movies

I downloaded all of these songs last week. It’s my “four. more. years.” playlist. If you are interested, I’d be happy to record you a cd. All of these songs were downloaded on iTunes. This is also published as an iMix, too.

Bush as Dictator. By the Department of Homeboys Security.

Civil War. By Guns n Roses. My big bother pointed this one out to me. Great song. And very appropriate.

Masters of War. By Pearl Jam. This song gives me goosebumps. Pearl Jam covers this Dylan song very well.

Mosh. By Eminem. This has to go on this playlist.

Gods Love. By Bad Religion. This song is about how our leaders do all of these horrible things in the name of God.

Eminence Front. By The Who. Randi Rhodes played this song on her show awhile back and pointed out how the lyrics depict the Bush Admin. The spirit of the lyrics, I should say. They are putting on a front, you know? Great song.

World Gone Wrong. By Bob Dylan. I put this song on the playlist primarily because of the title. And it’s Bob Dylan.

(Sittin on) the dock of the bay. By Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings. I heard this song last week performed on our local access station by a local blues band. Thier rendition of this song was so friggen fantastic. As I was listening to it I came to the realization that this song is not a happy-go-lucky tune at all. In fact, it’s more about feeling totally and utterly hopeless, lonely, and 2000 miles away from your home, to boot. I was kind of thinking that I could relate to this song in many ways. And I wondered if many people who move to the Bay Area feel this way. I mean, there was a song written about it. It doesn’t have anything to do with the Bush Admin or the the election. It has more to do with the utter hoplessness that I feel right now. Willie and Waylon capture ths feeling in thier cover.

Boulevard of Broken Dreams. By Green Day Again, more of an utter hopelessness kind of thing. It’s a really, really good song, too.

Rockin in the Free World.By Neil Young. This was featured on F911’s soundtrack.

Who’s gonna save us. By the Living End. This was written with the current political climate in mind.

The Revolution Starts Now. By Steve Earle. Stever Earle is an Air America Radio talk show host.

In Tennessee. By the George W. Bush Singers. This playlist wouldn’t be complete without the George W. Singers.

Pour yourself a glass of your favorite hard-liquor and enjoy!

Bush’s Brain

Books, Music, Art, Movies

I thought I would post a little something about a little documentary that I watched over the holiday weekend. Bush’s Brain. Based on the book, Bush’s Brain. It’s about Karl Rove. It was a fairly short documentary that presented a biography about Rove, and then talked about how he has helped Bush rise to the White House. Rove has been working for the Bushs for quite a number of years. He began working for Daddy Bush, and then moved on to Shrub. I knitted during most of the film, so I don’t remember the fine details. But I did come away from this film with an even greater belief that Rove is evil. “Win, no matter what the cost” is his mantra. In many cases the cost has been defmation of the character of a few Viet Nam war heroes. In other cases he has ruined lives and careers. Just so he can win. There is no question that the man is brilliant. He knows exactly what he is doing. And this is precisely why he is so evil.

Watching this reminded me of another movie that I watched a couple of weeks ago, a documentary about Dietrich Bonhoeffer (called Bonhoeffer). He was a theologian who, along with other family members, created a conspiracy to asassinate Hilter. In the film, they showed the Third Riech’s “minister of propaganda” giving a speech and a light went on in my head. That is what Rove is. He’s America’s Minister of Propaganda.

Both of these films are really good and I highly recommend them both. Bonhoeffer was really interesting because it raised some interesting ethical questions…For example, is one still a Christian if the go against the Ten Comanments and kill, even if it is Hitler? Food for thought….
