The Left Coaster: Supporting the Troops

The Next Hurrah: Even before Monica Goodling came along, Bu$hco was illegally using party affiliation in the hiring of immigration judges

The Left End of the Dial v2.0: Hope the Dems enjoy co-ownership their new colony in Iraq. The actual plan is to stay there forever

The Aristocrats: As soon as you see the phrase, “Bush Haters,” in a newspaper you know anything else you’re gonna read is a lie.

Save the Internet: The FCC is on the verge of turning over a large chunk of the public airwaves to the same giant phone and cable companies that control high-speed Internet access for 96 percent of American home users.

Veteran and friend, Michael Graham, wrote me on Memorial Day:

What most liberals have so far failed to understand -- because they tend to be people with kind hearts and sensibilities -- is that the Republican Party has been commandeered by Nazis. They are not just the opposition party anymore, they are evil. This has been building for years, and I have been alive long enough to have witnessed much of it. There was the John Birch Society, and Watergate, and Iran-Contra and now this.

As a veteran, Memorial Day takes on increasing importance to me every year. That's probably because the sh*t goes on and on. Twice in my lifetime I have seen our leaders betray the nation and especially the war-fighters by concocting phony reasons for wars of occupation -- wars that were doomed to failure because they were wars of occupation. What they can't understand, these armchair heroes, is that the Injuns shoot back. It happened at Little Big Horn, it happened in Vietnam and it's happening now.

I mean, for Christ's sake, if there were a foreign army kicking down doors in LA, we'd all be f*&king insurgents. Duh!

And I need to remind my progressive friends that the last time a narcissistic a**hole from Texas with links to Halliburton used lies to launch a hopeless war, it was a Democrat.

When I was commissioned as a second lieutenant in USAF Officer Training Class 67-E, I took an oath to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic." I have come to regard the Bush Administration and their supporters as domestic enemies. I hope the Democratic Party gets that, before it is too late for democracy.

Because it sure as hell can happen here! As for me, I think it already has.
