Iran Contra. Guns for hostages. Guns for drugs. Too bad actual facts have to taint the rights historical revisionism of their beloved criminal Ronald Reagan and his partner in crime VP Bush.. Never noticed the over abundance of cocaine that flooded our streets during his reign? The record number of cocaine addicts? Ronnie couldn't get funding through Congress, so he got it any way he could. With the help of convicted criminal Oliver North, poster boy for Faux "News", and repeatedly referred to by Sean Hannity as "a great American" (that taints every great American), and "one of my closest and dearest friends in the whole world." He was pardoned by Bush, along with five others about to stand trial, including Casper Weinberger. The prosecutor, Lawrence Walsh screamed of a coverup. Mr. Walsh bitterly condemned the President's action, charging that 'the Iran-contra cover-up, which has continued for more than six years, has now been completed.' Also forgotten is Reagan’s own embarrassing propensity to just make things up. Reagan was a dunce and a fabricator. One of his most famous assertions was, “Trees cause more pollution than automobiles do.”
George "No new taxes, ex Director of the CIA" Bush also led us into the first Gulf war with the same Hooligans his son imposed on us years later. The first Gulf War was sold on a mountain of war propaganda. It took a campaign worthy of George Orwell to convince Americans that our ally Saddam Hussein — whom the US had aided in his war with Iran as late as 1988 (cue the famous photo of Saddam and "Rummy" shaking hands) had become an irrational monster by 1990. Citing top-secret satellite images, Pentagon officials estimated in mid-September of 1990 that up to 250,000 Iraqi troops and 1,500 tanks stood on the border of Saudi Arabia, threatening the key US oil supplier. Yet, Jean Heller of the St. Petersburg Times wasn’t satisfied taking the administration’s claims at face value. She obtained two commercial satellite images of the area taken at the exact same time that American intelligence supposedly had found Saddam’s huge and menacing army and found nothing there but empty desert.
Do I really need to recite the misgivings and downright lies that freely skipped out of " Fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can't get fooled again" Bush's mouth just about every time he opened it? I would love to continue, but obviously I haven't the time.posted @ Tuesday, July 15, 2014 - 18:48

...but then, the post-Jimmy Carter Democratic and Republican parties seem to have a problem with being honest and telling the truth. There. Fixed it for you. At least we can agree on that, Jimmy Carter was the last moral President that we have had. And the way things are going, maybe the last we will ever have.
[quote][b]snarkydude[/b] - Funny how you and others love to criticize the fundamentalist Christians, but we never hear a peep out of you when fundamentalist Muslims kill gays, mutilate young girls, trap them in burning school buildings, kidnap them and force them into slavery, or behead non-believers.[/quote]
Whoa Snarko!!! Now you are all over the place! Why would you think I have never criticized. or condemned horrific, barbaric atrocities in other countries??? Nothing could be further from the truth. The Middle East wasn't even part of this story that I can recall. But maybe you are on to something here. All of the fundamentalist Christians who were soooo gung ho to invade that region (the ones that did not want to go themselves, or their sons or daughters, but were more than willing to let others go kill and be killed), they could be given weapons and sent over there to sort out the Muslim fundamentalists. Problem solved.

"Political affiliation has nothing to do with it. You'll find just as many Democrats who aren't tolerant of gays as you will Republicans."
Yeah. And the intolerant "Christian Right" has just as many Democrats affiliated with it as Republicans. Whatever.
When it comes to political gay bashing, the GOP always seems to outdo itself.
"Look into the hypocrisy pool before you jump off the diving board."
I got too close to the pool once. Saw Rick Perry, Dave Agema, and Ralph Reed in there thrashing about with all their homophobic cronies spouting out their anti-Christian views in the name of Christ. Didn't touch the diving board.posted @ Monday, July 14, 2014 - 18:40

"One change will be moving the art book library out of the office space it currently inhabits — Dunphy’s new office, to be exact — and make it accessible for all to use."
“It’s been behind a closed door,” said Dunphy, who also noted her plans to add up-to-date books to the collection, as well as better cataloguing what’s on hand. “If the staff can be seen using the library for reference and study, patrons will turn to them as well.”

Summary: Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
