If you want a perspective that is not often heard regarding domestic public policy issues, I urge you to listen to Amy Goodman’s program Democracy Now! While I don’t endorse all of the positions taken on this program, I do believe that it gives the public a unique perspective on issues free of corporate control. The program is both thoughtful and in depth. Democracy Now! is broadcast on Pacifica, community, and National Public Radio stations, public access cable television stations … Read more »

THIS THE MAN YOU THINK WILL KEEP YOU SAFE?
- BUSH IGNORED THE ADVICE OF THE CLINTON ADMINISTRATION REGARDING THE URGENT THREAT OF AL QAEDA.
- BUSH IGNORED THE HART-RUDMAN COMMISSION TERRORISM REPORT, WHICH OUTLINED A RANGE OF U.S. SECURITY REQUIREMENTS AND STRATEGIC OBJECTIVES.
- BUSH FAILED TO GET OVER 100,000 HOURS OF VALUABLE TERRORISM-RELATED TAPINGS TRANSLATED BY LINGUISTS AT THE F.B.I, A FULL 3 YEARS AFTER 9/11. IN FACT, JOHN ASHCROFT REFUSED TO ENDORSE FBI REQUESTS FOR $58 MILLION FOR NEW COUNTERTERRORISM

I find it appalling that the Bush Administration, most of whose members have never served in the military, have questioned the patriotism of Democrats that oppose the President’s handling of the war in Iraq. Many of these Democratic leaders have clearly shown their bravery and loyalty in combat through their own military service. The architects of the Iraq war and the Republicans who stand by the Bush administration with unwavering support for its policies of pre-emptive war have painstakingly tried … Read more »

You can fool some of the people all of the time, and those are the ones you want to concentrate on.
— George W. Bush
Playing on the Abraham Lincoln adage, George W. Bush was quoted making this statement. The Bush Administration, from the outset, has used the approach of disseminating lies, lies of omission and half truths, cover-ups and smoke screens to pull the wool over the eyes of the American people. And the media has allowed them to … Read more »

I only hope that Thursday night’s debate finally sent a clear message to the undecided and swing voters in this country about who deserves to win the election come November 2 and lead this country back from where it has strayed. Thursday night we saw two very different men standing before us. John Kerry showed us his true colors. He was humble, where Bush was arrogant, he was elegant, where Bush was awkward, he was articulate, where Bush was unintelligent, … Read more »

If you cross this administration you get your head handed to you. If you open your mouth and tell the truth like former White House Economic Advisor Lawrence Lindsay did when he told the Administration that the Iraqi war was going to cost between $100-$200 billion dollars, you get fired. If you disagree with the President, like Treasury Secretary Paul O’Neill did one too many times regarding the President’s policy on tax cuts, you get canned. If you claim that … Read more »

The Republican Party and the Bush administration like to keep the public uninformed and in the dark as to what they are doing. This president has had fewer press conferences than any other president in recent history. It is difficult for the country to stay properly informed when we are constantly being fed half truths and lies of omission by the current administration. Every time they send a representative out to speak to the public, he is armed with the … Read more »

I have always felt strongly that it is important to know about the man behind the President. And it seems that every four years I try to remind people that Dick Cheney, who is just a heartbeat away from the presidency, has a voting record that clearly reveals his right wing extremism. See below for a recap on Vice President Dick Cheney’s voting record.
Dick Cheney voted in the extreme right minority:
- In His First 6 Years As A U.S.

Following are remarks by Barbra Streisand concerning the upcoming presidential election which she made during her performance at the An Evening With John Kerry And Friends fundraising concert at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, Thursday evening, June 24, 2004:
WHEN I FIRST SANG THAT SONG IN 1963, ANOTHER BRILLIANT MASSACHUSETTS SENATOR WITH THE INITIALS JFK WAS PRESIDENT. IT WAS A TURBULENT, UNCERTAIN TIME. KENNEDY CORRECTLY VIEWED THE WORLD AS A COMPLICATED PLACE WHICH NEEDED VERY INTELLIGENT PEOPLE … Read more »

America was profoundly changed after the September 11 attacks. We went from a country motivated by hope to a country controlled by fear. For the last several years, feeling neither safe nor secure, Americans have lived in extreme anxiety of another impending terrorist attack. I think that as a result, most Americans sought out their faith and reaffirmed their conviction in God. President Bush and the Religious Right’s greatest political weapon has been perpetuating fear. Because of the heightened climate … Read more »
