Tonight I went through my AIM buddy list and deleted 95% of it... literally.
I have been making new friends recently. From the connections I have with them, I realize that I am at a new phase in my life, and it is time to shed old skin.

I have come to some very disturbing conclusions as to the situation our world faces today.
Our Bush family fascist dictators and Karl Rove are destroying the very fabric of humanity and their following is vast and full of religious phonies who use the bible as a way to control people.
It goes even deeper than that into the basic ego-centered box. People living in an short-term ignorant bliss believing their way is the right way even as our natural forests diminish, our oceans become toxic, and our financial greed is killing people.
I get this. Yeah, we're fucked up, I get it.
The thing I am starting to understand now is that I can't do anything about it. Not to the degree needed to really make a difference. Our world is too fucked up for grass-roots and activists to penetrate.. Ok.
So now I'm sitting here, in my transition, and I realize how much of the last two years of my life have been wasted. I feel like I've been so bogged down with the shit that is been going on elsewhere that I've lost sight of my life.
It really sucks because what I learn hurts my heart very much. To think of the horrible things we have done to one-another. To think of how cruel and inhumane we can truly be. Even if it's just voting for the man who is responsible for over 100 thousand Iraqi civilian deaths. How can one, in good conscience, make that choice? What? Osama did it to us so we can do it too- on a grander scale and to other nations?
As much as I feel it is important to know what's going on in order to spread the world and help people see what's real, I don't think I can allow myself to spiral down this political vortex anymore. Not until I get what I need to get done in order to put myself in a place where I can really do some damage.
I apologize to the people I've been ignoring. I just haven't felt very social lately, hope you don't mind.

The Washington post was quoted, "18 U.S. soldiers and 600 insurgents have been killed in the battle for Fallujah." Although other sources, including the Los Angeles Times, have reported over double those numbers, 38 Americans and 1,200 to 1,600 Iraqi dead. For every American killed, an average 37 Iraqis have been killed.
I've heard Donald Rumsfeld describe Iraqi insurgents as being terrorists, criminals, and Saddam loyalists.
However, a Sports Illustrated interview with the Iraqi Men's Soccer team portrayed a different picture. One told Sports Illustrated that when he got home he would take arms up against the Americans because he wanted to defend his country.
America attacked Iraq for one simple reason. Money. The Weapons Industry is huge in the United States, talk about weapons of mass destruction. In order to continue selling weapons the ones already purchased must be used, or be enough threat to someone else that they want to buy yours as well.
Iraq, being the second larges oil reserve in the world, would of course never be a target of the thirsty S.U.V. loving U.S.A. Not even after we put a pipeline through Afghanistan and didn't give a fuck about catching bin Laden. And we should trust that our president was being purely objective and unbiased when Halliburton got all oil contracts in Iraq.
If your country had been invaded and occupied by another nation that got rid of your evil dictator but killed and continued to kill thousands- to the hundred thousands of Iraqi civilians. A nation that was making a profit off of your suffering, and made the quality of our life worse than when your evil dictator was in place. Wouldn't you want to defend your country too? And yet CNN calls these people "Anti-Iraq-Iraqis." Why don't they have the balls to tell it like it really is. They're Anti-American-Iraqis with legitimate reasons as to why.
I am not saying that Iraq and Iraqis are perfect and free of sin. However, our "leaders" have no right to go there, massacre them, make a profit off them, call ourselves the good guys or "Big Brother," and send our citizens into another country to die in the name of Profit.

Tonight Moya and I drove down Brea Canyon on our way home from school. When you enter from the south side you are greeted by looming oil rigs like you see in cowboy movies. The moon was floating over the top of the hills, looking down at me with a certain heaviness to it.
Moya put on the epicene voice of Frou Frou and I got caught in the red hue of the moon. I couldn’t help but wonder what the moon must have meant to people before we realized that it’s a rock orbiting our planet… before we realized we were on a rock… before we realized we weren’t the center of the universe. To see the large glowing object float over us, constantly following us, constantly watching us. No wonder we thought it was a god. Same goes with the sun.
Trying to put myself in that reality is so.. foreign, but it did exist at one time.
There was a time when we… well, we didn’t really think about time the way we do today. We didn’t worry about car insurance or cancer. We lived in a completely different reality where everything was alive. We explained the unexplainable with supernatural reasoning instead of with science. Our moon, sun, and planets were gods who got angry and punished us. They gave inanimate objects life.
Tonight I saw the moon looking at me and I felt very small.

As it stands... anyone know any gay male Canadians who want a trophy wife?
There are things going on in our country that we have no control of. There are things going on that we have no idea about. It's deeper than what Michael Moore touched on. Not only is Bush + Bush Sr. friends with radical Islam, they are corrupt sociopaths who have no understanding of poverty or what it is like to suffer, feel pain, get in trouble. How understanding can someone be when they always get what they want? They believe they are above it all, and with all the power they have, they are. Here is a small sample of the evidence proving their corruption: Pentagon Conspiracy Facts

Do we trust a President that did not win the majority vote and has the highest record of executions than any other governor of a state in modern time?

Lesbians need to stop trashing Bisexuals. It's another form of sexuality that is different from Heterosexuality. We need to stop dividing ourselves.
If a Bisexual isn't into a Lesbian then maybe it's because she's not into THAT Lesbian.
I mean, seriously. A Bisexual deciding she doesn't want to date a Lesbian anymore is worse than a Lesbian not wanting to date another Lesbian? Either way, you're getting dumped.
And if she cheats on you, she cheats on you.
This is a topic that has seriously disturbed me ever since I came out years ago.
Honestly, I think this prejudice has a lot more to do with ego than with sexuality. We can't stand being dumped and it's a lot easier to hate her if she goes to a man... but doesn't that then make us man-haters as well?
Our biggest problem involves the "U-Haul" Stereotype we've given ourselves. We jump into relationships without developing a good foundation through friendship and respect. We go out, make out, have sex, spend the night, fall in love all in a matter of days. When we get dumped, we cry, attempt suicide for attention, then go on and on about how lonely we are.
I recommend to all of you, with the most sincerity in my heart, try developing real relationships through hard work and patience. Commitment is a serious thing. Divorce may be legal, but it's not the answer. We don't even have that luxury, so when you commit to someone, really COMMIT. Don't go to bed angry at each other. Don't leave in the middle of an argument. Don't say things out of spite and don't use your fists. Allow for some cool off time, but communicate and don't bottle things up.
Enjoy your youth! You have the rest of your lives to settle down. Having someone else validate your existence is no real reason to have a relationship with someone. If you can't love your self, why should anyone else?
The fact is, most of us here on earth are confused. I am confused about many things, and so are my parents. Age doesn't mean we become infallible, it just means we become confused about other things. Sexuality is not an exception. Jesus said, "Let he without sin cast the first stone." The same thing should be said about confusion.
There is no reason to promote bitterness within the LGBT. It makes us look like hypocrites. If we want to be accepted by Heterosexuals while hating Bisexuals for being Bisexual, then we do not deserve equality.

Governor Schwarzenegger will decide by September 30th whether to sign or veto a California bill requiring Voter-Verified Paper Ballots.
Please phone Governor Schwarzenegger now, and ask him to sign bill number SB 1438 right away. For an effective call:
Call (916) 445-2841
Press 7 to speak with a staff member
Tell the staff member your name, where you're from, and that you are urging the governor to sign SB 1438 to require Voter-Verified Paper Ballots.
If you don't get through, please keep trying. Personal phone calls will have the most impact.
If you still can't get through, you can send the governor an email through his online web form:
A handwritten letter can be very powerful too -- and reinforces our point about the importance of a paper trail. You can send the governor a letter via U.S. mail to:
Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger
State Capitol Building
Sacramento, CA 95814
As we have described earlier, there's overwhelming evidence that electronic voting terminals are susceptible to manipulation and error, before and after voting. If they malfunction, votes may be lost irretrievably. That's why we should be able to verify our votes on secure paper ballots that can be counted and re-counted.
The California bill SB 1438, co-authored by Senators Ross Johnson (R-Orange) and Don Perata (D-Alameda), would require that all Electronic voting systems provide a Voter-Verified Paper Ballot in time for the primary election of 2006. It will not impact this year's election. The bill also requires that no new paperless electronic voting systems may be certified by the Secretary of State after this year.
Just last week California officials announced they will sue Diebold Inc., a leading supplier of e-voting machines, for defrauding the state by supplying shoddy equipment that wasn't tested or approved. Californians deserve the most reliable and trustworthy voting systems available anywhere. Please call Governor Schwarzenegger today.
Thank you, for all you do.

The level of immaturity on LiveJournal reminds me of why I stopped venturing on here.

That is all.

I want to hunt just like our fore-fathers did and now I have a chance. I’ve always wanted an automatic AK-47 so that I can spray a ton of rounds at my prey… I’m bound to hit it even if I am a poor shot. The little beasts won’t have a chance, along with anything else in the vicinity.
Hunting isn’t the only good reason for getting an automatic AK-47. If someone breaks into a liquor store while I’m there, I’ll show them who’s boss, I only have to pull the trigger once… it’s not laziness, it’s efficiency.
Now, when I’m on the road and some asshole cuts me off in the middle of heavy traffic I can bust out a bazooka and blow him and the path of cars in front of me into smithereens. After all, what else am I going to use a bazooka for? Shooting those annoying helicopters down? Now that I think about it… YES! A bazooka would come in real handy. It has so many productive uses, my heart is racing I’m so excited.
I don’t care if Presidents Reagan, Ford, Carter, and Clinton were all for the ban, my constitutional rights tell me to own these weapons.
There are so many uses for assault weapons. Hell, there are so many uses for guns. When I’m too tired to turn off the lights and it’s hurting my eyes, *POW POW* it’s out. Come on, people, don’t you see my logic?
I mean, guns are great. They’re not weapons… they’re tools. For what? I don’t know… but hey, "Guns don’t kill people, people kill people."
ANYONE can point and shoot, it’s so convenient. Everyone should have a gun. I can’t even count the number of times when I’ve wished I had a gun, because they are so helpful.
The fact of the matter is that we, as American citizens, need guns or we will die. It is in our blood, our God-given right… even though guns were invented long after Jesus Christ and the Bible. I mean, God wouldn’t have given us the tools to make guns if they weren’t important… Science and technology to develop things like embryonic stemcell research however, are things God does not want because it destroys cells to save lives. God doesn’t want that at all.
Guns are used for good. Guns are used to kill. Killing is good.
If you disagree, then don’t go here: http://www.moveon.org/savetheban/
And don’t read this: http://www.thejournalnews.com/newsroom/0
The NRA is right, semi-automatics are still legal, it's a waste to enforce laws with so many loopholes, so let's all just give in and get as many life-destroying weapons out on the market as possible.
With just a few weeks left until Election Day, it's increasingly
urgent that Congress act now to ensure that we all have a chance to
vote on Voter Verified Paper Ballots.
Members of Congress will only be in Washington for a couple of weeks
before leaving to hit the campaign trail. We've got to demand
immediate action on two key federal bills that would require paper
ballots: a Senate bill sponsored by a Republican, Sen. John Ensign,
and a House bill sponsored by a Democrat, Rep. Rush Holt.
Please call your Senators and Representative now:
Senator Dianne Feinstein
Washington, DC: 202-224-3841
Senator Barbara Boxer
Washington, DC: 202-224-3553
Congressman Gary G. Miller
Washington, DC: 202-225-3201
Urge your Senators to:
"Please co-sponsor Senator Ensign's 'Voting Integrity and
Verification Act,' # S 2437."
Urge your Representative to:
"Please co-sponsor Rep. Holt's 'Voter Confidence and
Increased Accessibility Act,' # HR 2239."
Please let us know you're calling, at:
The evidence is overwhelming: electronic voting terminals are
susceptible to manipulation before and after voting. If they
malfunction, votes may be lost irretrievably. That's why we should
be able to verify our votes on secure paper ballots that can be
counted and re-counted.
The Senate and House bills above would require that all electronic
voting systems provide a Voter-Verified Paper Ballot, and would make
the paper ballot the official ballot of record. Ensign's Senate bill
would do this by 2006 and Holt's House bill would do it by 2004.
Even a 2006 deadline will help convince state election officials that
they shouldn't buy electronic voting terminals this year or next
unless they produce Voter-Verified Paper Ballots.
We deserve the most reliable and trustworthy voting systems available
anywhere. Please make these calls today.
Thank you, for all you do.

This is what I'm talking about. These people who repeat the propaganda 3.6 billion people are subjected to via radical conservative Rupert Murdoch. You want to see what we've done in Iraq?
Hypocrites, ignorant hypocrites who call women at abortion clinics murderers for rejecting a few cells from their bodies, but you support this shit in Iraq?
Tell me, please, why is it so hard to look at this picture when you support the cause of it? Why can't you see the blood on your hands? You may not have pulled the trigger, you may not have dropped the bomb, but you allow this to happen, you support it... are you proud?
Could you look that little girl in the eyes and tell her you're to blame along with the rest of your country because you supported this war? For what? Her freedom? Look at her legs- what kind of freedom is that? She's not the only child, and she's not a rare case. All these Iraqi people suffering. All for weapons of mass destruction that do not exist... our wonderful government is always right- look we went to war because we trust them so much and have lost over a thousand American men and women.
I know what a lot of closed-minded people are going to say.
"That's just propaganda."
"Accidents happen in war."
"Better us, than them."
"It's for their own ultimate good."
"You're just a bleeding heart liberal."
The BS goes on and on- When one person dies, it's a murder, when hundreds of thousands of die, they're statistics.
The funny thing about a lot of the closed-minded bigots I run into, is that they often say similar if not exact word-for-word arguments, like the popular one on gay marriage: "If a man is allowed to marry a man, what's to stop a farmer from marrying his cow or an owner from marrying his dog?"
Same ignorant and weak arguments used over and over, part of the repetition propaganda machine.
The other day I heard Donald Rumsfeld say that the insurgents in Iraq consisted of terrorist, past regime members, and criminals.
Are all Iraqis the enemy? Who are we trying to free? Why is it we see insurgents, people defending their homes, as 'terrorists, past regime members, and criminals?'
I look back at our past experiences in the middle east, when Bush Sr. asked the Shiite Muslims to rise against Saddam, and then we just left them there to suffer with Saddam still in power and us getting the fuck out of there. Oooops, left them will the bill, haha.
Ten years later we come back with Fox News flashing "Operation Iraqi Freedom" as we make a preemptive attack against a sovereign nation and the wishes of the UN. Fuck Europe, we only want the UN rules to apply when it benefits us. We discredit you by telling everyone that all you do is fuck up and make mistakes and that you're against the war because you have money invested in Iraq. We are trying to save some people here, why would you think we're doing it for the money and the oil? Because we're not, that's silly, we're not we're not we're not we're not, us good, you bad... I know that run on sentence was a little strange, but I honestly believe that our government is constantly telling us what to think to the point where we're so confused we think we have to trust them.
So we believe it is okay for soldiers to shoot Iraqi children because they are told to pick up weapons. So we believe it is okay to bomb Iraqi homes (because mistakes happen, it's all a part of war, you have to listen to me, after all, I am a war-president...) All the propaganda is driving me insane, wasn't that grand of Rumsfeld to take responsibility for what happened in Abu Ghraib? It's not like he could do much about it being so far away, but that's how honorable he is... even though no one's really getting in trouble for it except for a few low-ranking scape-goats.
What do we really know about the war? Why don't we ever see the caskets of our citizens who've died fighting a pointless war? What are they keeping from us, and why doesn't anyone do anything about it?
To a more basic question... why are there so many under-educated sheep in our country allowing this to happen? We are constantly punished for stepping out of line, an expensive $50,000 habit when you express freedom of speech at the Republican National Convention. Right now, I am so overwhelmed with school, work, homework, domestic work, freaking out about making one mistake, that's an expensive fine... I didn't even see Bush speak at the RNC. I haven't really been able to invest my time in anything else because I have no more time.
I really believe there is something fucked up with our present state of being. If we don't... let's just say there are dead zones in the ocean due to the toxic wasted we've dumped in the ocean the size of the United States... Does our “liberal” news ever report on this? Conservatives always say a news source is “liberal” when it points out a Republican/Corporate fuck-up. If the news were liberal, we’d be hearing about serious issues like what we’re doing about the fact that the rate of asthma in children is greatly increasing due to air pollution when there are other cleaner fuels that could be used in place of gasoline which can be replenished, leave us independent from the middle east, and is cheaper to produce like ETHENOL.
I drove through Wyoming where they had 89 octane with 10% ethanol in it. It cost the same as the 87 octane without it, and reduced the amount of exhaust by 30%. WHAT THE FUCK, people!?!
By the way, yeah, I cuss on here, because I believe that profanity is a form of expression. It can be used to express extreme anger and frustration, and it can be used immaturely to bring others down, example: Cheney, “Go Fuck Yourself.”
So- seriously, What the fuck is going on, and why are things like Hemp free of THC which produce 3 foot fibers illegal in a country running out of resources and opening up 50 million more acres (almost one third) of our untouched, natural, national forests.
What the fuck…
Yeah- I’m angry. I’m annoyed by the lame-asses who come onto my journal who, comment after comment, act all proud and mighty supporting Bush and look like complete idiots doing so. It’s not even because of Bush. It’s because they’re just stupid. Too ignorant to read anything that offends them, too scared to face the facts that their happy little fantasy is being questioned with real facts.
If you want to ask me a question on anything- go for it, but I’m not going to put any energy into answering people who:
a. ask stupid questions
b. act stupid (example: “all you ever want to do is force your opinions on others and make them think the way that you think. the world does not work like that! grow up.”)
I would love to have a good, legitimate debate with a Bush supporter who can do something more than make themselves into a victim every time they’re put into a corner, and who has actually done some REAL research. And stop giving these shallow accusations like “you know nothing about the president other than what the media tells you or the internet, which is where you love to gather most of your information.” Because: 1. I get my information from as many sources as I can- including the conservative brainwash, and 2. I pay attention to president, including when he was governor and made Texas the most polluted state in the whole U.S… oh yeah, it’s the most Obese too.
Bring it on, but please, don't waste my time if you're just going to spew nonsense.

In response to my last LiveJournal entry an anonymous commenter decided to tell me off...
how about you post your own thoughts and ideas instead of stealing it from someone else's post.
while we are on the subject, why don't you ever post anything about the opposing nominee. all you quacks ever do is talk sh*t about the other and never offer any substantial information to sway any vote in a different direction. all you ever want to do is force your opinions on others and make them think the way that you think. the world does not work like that! grow up.
why don't all you bush haters give me a substantial reason to vote for kerry. and because you think john kerry and john edwards are cute is not a substantial argument.
To that I say:
um... how about you let me use my journal and way I please, this is a freedom written in the constitution and I choose to exercise it, thank you very much.
It's people like you that make up the biggest problems in society. Hypocritical assholes who claim to uphold the basic sanctity of our DEMOCRATIC nation and yet tell people to shut up, do this, do that. Making false accusations like "stealing"... hmmm... I didn't know I stole something that someone posted with the consent to others to REPOST... did I not give the original poster any credit? Was the resource not cited?
You "conservative" finger pointers get pissed off when you can't argue a confrontation with actual facts. Instead, like your good friend Bill O'Rielly, you revert to "shut up" tactics. LAME. You can say what ever you want on my journal, but come on- same something real, for Christ's sake (if you believe in Jesus Christ, that is.)
On the subject of growing up my anonymous reader, why don't you take your own advice? I am not forcing anyone to read my journal, or think the way I do. I present information, ideas, and opinions. Maaaaaaaan, I really force you into thinking things? That's weak.
If you ever want to comment on my journal again, and not look like a complete fool, why don't you read several of my recent posts, including the one about Ralph Nader.
I have no respect for people like you because you are weak cowards with no backbone. You take no credit for your slander or ignorance because you know people will see you for what you truly are. Pathetic. You leave no substantial arguments to support your case, and leave others to do all the work providing all the facts.
Get over yourself and your ego-driven insecurities. You people are the reason our great nation is going down the shit-hole. Too afraid to admit any mistakes, too selfish to fix all the problems that are here and growing. Take some responsibility and check out some sources other than your conservative brain-wash FOX News and Rush Limbaugh.
Oh- and PS: When did I ever say I think John Kerry and John Edwards were cute? Are you on something?

PRESIDENT GEORGE W BULLSH*T Sep 7 2004
PRESIDENT George W Bush is proud to be a Texan. So no doubt he can recognise the smell that now fills the halls of the White House.
It's the same smell that wafts out of the mouths of every one of his spokesmen, from creepy Vice President Dick Cheney to film star buddy Arnie The Terminator.
And it's a smell that is emitted by Bush himself, every time he delivers his set piece on why he should be re-elected as president.
It's the stink of, well, I'm sorry, there's no other word for it... bullsh*t. Plain, old-fashioned verbal manure.
No lie is too outrageous to be spun. No truth is too sacred to besmirch.
When I first tuned in to the Republican National Convention last week, I thought I'd hit the wrong channel and caught the party convention of loony North Korean dictator Kim Jong II, whose robotic underlings hail him as a living god while half the population starves.
New York, Pyongyang, it all came from the same propaganda song sheet...
The Republicans told us about how great a leader ol' "Bushie" is. How wise, how wonderful, how terrific it would be for the world if only he were allowed to reign for ever!
It was all lies spun by the rich and powerful to fool the people and hide the disastrous record of the most dangerous, just plain stupid presidency the world has ever known.
The first, and biggest, lie is Bush's favourite - that America needs him as Commander-in-Chief to fight the War on Terror.
"I will defend America every time," he twangs.
But, of course, when Bush really did have the chance to risk his own life - rather than other people's lives - to defend the US, it was a different story.
Both Bush and his Democratic rival John Kerry were young men in the 1970s, when the Vietnam War was raging.
Unlike Bush, Kerry volunteered and fought and killed for his country in the dangerous waters of the Mekong Delta. He was awarded three Purple Hearts, a Silver Star and a Bronze Star.
BUSH, a rabid coward, slunk off for guard duty with the Texas Air National Guard in some patsy little job his daddy's rich pals provided.
Bush spent most of his "war" drunk, partying with other spoiled rich kids. No one ever saw him in uniform and the only way he risked his neck was pouring too much beer down it.
But like conservatives everywhere, Bush and the Republicans have only a passing acquaintance with the truth.
With the aid of Karl Rove, his chief attack dog in the White House, Bush has turned Kerry's heroism into cowardice and his own spinelessness into silence.
Yet Bush remains a coward even now. Yesterday, seven US Marines died in Fallujah. The bodies of those young men will soon be shipped to America for burial. But the man who sent them halfway across the world to die won't be there to welcome these fallen heroes home.
Alone, of all American presidents, "Bushie", the great Commander-In-Chief, does not like to be photographed close to the dead reminders of his failures.
Instead of comfort, he gives the families of the bereaved the cold shoulder. Yet many of those soldiers would not be dead in the first place if they had the proper armoured vests and equipment to stop an AK-47 round - the favoured weapon of the Iraqi insurgents.
Scandalously, 87 per cent of the US military's Humvees (High-Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles) still do not have proper protection and 40,000 troops don't have effective flak jackets.
In desperation, some soldiers' families were forced to spend US$1,500 (£930) on the special plating needed to protect their loved ones.
Lie No.2 comes from Bush's own twisted mouth... "I am running for president with a clear and positive plan to build a safer world," he says.
Yet Bush has waged a disastrous and unnecessary war in Iraq that has removed the ageing, patently useless Arab dictator Saddam Hussein and multiplied the threat of Islamic terrorism a thousandfold.
Al-Qaeda has spread its nihilistic brand of terrorism across the world, from Bali to Madrid, from London to the slaughterhouse of Beslan. Bush has trashed the world economy, sent oil prices rocketing, been responsible for the deaths of 20,000 Iraqis - and more than 1,000 US and British troops - and failed to capture either Osama bin Laden or Taliban leader Mullah Omar.
If that was the plan so far, God save us from four more years.
Dangerously, despite the catastrophe of Iraq, Bush still has his "axis of evil" eye on the overthrow of the Syrian and Iranian regimes - a surefire recipe for global warfare.
But for all the victims overseas, Bush has also added more at home.
Two million Americans have lost their jobs while Bush, the so-called fiscal conservative, has drained the Treasury with profligate tax cuts for the richest one per cent of the population.
The US government is now spending $400billion (£250bn) more each year than it earns. Bush's "tax reforms" - giveaways to his rich friends - left millionaires £62,500 ($100,000) a year better off but gave working families less than $800 (£500). These figures sound abstract... until you see the cruelty of Bush and the poverty of America.
In downtown San Francisco, for instance, close to the rich financial district, poor sick people who should be in hospital lie in the street, in scenes reminiscent of the slums of Calcutta.
A total of 42million Americans, 15 per cent of the population, have no health insurance.
THOUSANDS of children also go to bed hungry, while millions of others have been brainwashed into eating junk food that has turned the US into a nation of Mr Blobbys.
"We are making progress and there is much to do," says Bush. And if he is re-elected, there sure will be a lot more death, destruction and tax cuts to be handed out.
A lie told boldly, amid the razzmatazz of a party convention, and then circulated by countless flunkies, is still a lie.
We all know who and what George W Bush represents - the rich and the mean-hearted.
And the simple truth is that he is the worst president the United States has ever had. What's more, he's a danger to the rest of the planet as well.

If you do your research online there are an amalgam of sources indicating that these accusations are false. The Heinz website supports this because of how much slander John Kerry and Teresa Heinz-Kerry have recieved about this.
Teresa Heinz-Kerry owns less than 4% in Heinz stock. Hardly enough to make any real decisions within the Heinz Corporation, including whether or not to outsource.
As for George W. Bush- Outsourcing continues to increase within the United States as competing nations like China provide cheaper and cheaper services. Walmart is one of many that proclaims to use US made products, however, even then, most of those "Made in the US" items are made in US colonies like Guatemala where sweat shops and mistreatment of employees run rampant.
Outsourcing is one of the biggest problems the US economy has. Money that should "trickle down" to the working-class citizens is being spent in other countries- fattening their wallets, and putting us all into deeper and deeper debts (I think we're at 5 trillion now? or have we made it to 6 yet?)
Taxes and Tarriffs give American Corporations no incentives to produce products and do business inside the United States.
The Republican party boasts of 1.6 million new jobs, but not the high paying jobs we once had. These new jobs require their employees to repeat lines like, "Would you like fries with your order?" At Bush's worst, we were at a 10% unemployment rate, now we are at 5, but our citizens are still being underpaid, and we've stopped counting those who have yet to find a job after 6 months... I know I went a year without finding any real work, but I only count as being unemployed for half that time. After that, you fall through the cracks.
We need to stop pointing fingers at government officials and relieving blame from others. The fact remains that our economy is walking on a tight-rope with a 5 trillion dollar debt below us. It is hard enough for me to pay for what I have already. It is hard enough for most Americans to pay of their credit card debt with an average of 8-16% interest on top of what they already owe. How can Americans as a whole expect to pay off such a huge deficite when we can't even pay our own bills on time?
Are we to pass this burden on to our children? Our grand children, our great-grand children? Welfare is already on it's way to collapsing. Tom Brokaw did a report on medicaid and medicare and the overwhelming delima of costs and paperwork is causing our healthcare to plummet downward. The second leading cause for bankrupcy is by medical debt.
Our president needs to do what a president is supposed to do. Take care of his people. We put 35 billion dollars into Turkey alone in the war against Iraq. 35 billion dollars could buy a lot of school books for our children, or medical equipment for our hospitals.
The question I have is this: What is most important to our political leaders? War against a small country that has never killed an American on American soil? Or saving American lives through healthcare and education on American soil?
I completely agree that Saddam Hussein was an evil, evil dictator. However, there are evil dictators all over the world, North Korea being one example, the House of Saud being another. We cannot defeat every evil dictator in the world, but we can defeat ignorance in our own country. We can defeat illnesses and relieve people of as much pain as possible in our own country. We can defeat poverty in our own country. We can defeat hunger and malnurishment in our own country.
We need to stop pointing fingers at China for taking away our business and hold our Corporations responsible for their decision making. We need to stop pointing fingers at the Middle East and start holding our government officials responsible for the poor quality of life many Americans endure today.
I ask you all: Stop Forwarding these untrue mass e-mails. If you want to accuse someone of a crime, accuse them of one they've committed, not one you've been told by so-and-so they've done. One great source is "Snopes.com" If the information is true, go ahead and send it, but don't let yourselves look silly because you're hopping on a bandwagon of lies.
