Bits and Pieces for the Week of August 12 - 18

"But history will recognize him as the man who sounded the alarm when the Bush administration moved America closer to the brink of disaster." (Mike)

Our Executive Branch of government (plus our new fourth branch, called "Vice President") just took a giant step closer to invading Iran. The chickenhawks are drooling... (Mike)

Who Cares About Blu-ray and HD DVD? (Mike)

Remember that September report on Iraq coming out to congress? "Despite Bush's repeated statements that the report will reflect evaluations by Petraeus and Ryan Crocker...administration officials said it would actually be written by the White House, with inputs from officials throughout the government."

Besides the number of troops, Bush's Iraq "surge" has produced increases in many other variables (Mike)

Sending Iraqi crude oil to Iran and Turkey for refining, will not make "Dick" a happy man! UPDATE: It's important to note that the Iraqis did this without the help of the USA. (7 of 6)

If Mike Whitney is anywhere near correct, we'd better start stuffing $$ into our mattresses. (Mike)

Early Monday, no coffee, am I still dreaming? KKKarl Rove to quit by the end of August! I hope "Turdblossom" resigning is part of the deal that Pelosi and Reid gave bu$h for FISA? I still find it hard to believe the Dems gave "bu$h a blank check" for spying on Americans! (7 of 6)

I guess you can serve your country, get approval to have memorial services at the High Point Church, but "based on principle" and that you're gay those services can still get cancelled 24 hours beforehand. Just one of God's children, right?

Illegal immigrant deaths in the Tucson AZ, area are up 22% compared to last year. (7 of 6)
