The news today, oh boy

Compassiongate is a website dedicated to clearing up misinformation about John Kerry.
Because there is no regulation demanding that political candidates speak the truth, many Americans need to get their facts straight.

Try not to be mean to bush supporters as many of them have simply been hoodwinked by all the lies. I for one was very surprised and dismayed that there are no standards when it comes to politics for being honest. I am sickened when I watch tv and see pundits excusing lies as
"simply politics". There should be no excuse for lies and misleading by politicians. Why do we tolerate this?

Fascist Characteristic 3. Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause -- The people are rallied into a unifying patriotic frenzy over the need to eliminate a perceived common threat or foe: racial, ethnic or religious minorities; liberals; communists; socialists, terrorists, etc.
Fascist Characteristic 6. Controlled Mass Media -- Sometimes the media is directly controlled by the government, but in other cases, the media is indirectly controlled by government regulation, or through sympathetic media spokespeople and executives. Censorship, especially in wartime, is very common.

Compassionate, my foot. bush's w is for women campaign is an outright fraud.
He is supposedly making inroads with women, especially mom's, using a fear tactic. It is reprehensible. Blair and Bush licking BBC makes a bogus case for women to support bush.

Characteristic of Fascism 7. Obsession with National Security -- Fear is used as a motivational tool by the government over the masses.

The Coming Post-Election Chaos:
A Storm Warning of Things to Come If the Vote Is as Close as Expected
From John Dean's alarming article in FindLaw

"It does not seem to trouble either Rove or Bush that they are moving us toward a Twenty-first Century civil war -- and that, once again, Southern conservatism is at its core. Only a miracle, it strikes me, can prevent this election from descending into post-election chaos. But given the alternatives, a miracle is what I am hoping for."
Fascist Characteristic 14. Fraudulent Elections -- Sometimes elections in fascist nations are a complete sham. Other times elections are manipulated by smear campaigns against (or even the assassination of) opposition candidates, the use of legislation to control voting numbers or political district boundaries, and the manipulation of the media. Fascist nations also typically use their judiciaries to manipulate or control elections.

The NY Times Reports: Huge Cache of Explosives Vanished From Site in Iraq:
"The huge facility, called Al Qaqaa, was supposed to be under American military control but is now a no man's land, still picked over by looters as recently as Sunday. United Nations weapons inspectors had monitored the explosives for many years, but White House and Pentagon officials acknowledge that the explosives vanished sometime after the American-led invasion last year. "

...The White House said President Bush's national security adviser, Condoleezza Rice, was informed within the past month that the explosives were missing. It is unclear whether President Bush was informed.

...The explosives could also be used to trigger a nuclear weapon, which was why international nuclear inspectors had kept a watch on the material, and even sealed and locked some of it. The other components of an atom bomb - the design and the radioactive fuel - are more difficult to obtain.

...The International Atomic Energy Agency publicly warned about the danger of these explosives before the war, and after the invasion it specifically told United States officials about the need to keep the explosives secured, European diplomats said in interviews last week. Administration officials say they cannot explain why the explosives were not safeguarded, beyond the fact that the occupation force was overwhelmed by the amount of munitions they found throughout the country.
Get our boys out of that country now. Our government is oblivious.

Want proof that your government doesn't give a shit about our soldiers?
Iraq war veterans are speaking out.
Iraq veterans open up on mishandling of war

[Boetcher, a soldier] presented the audience with statistics showing how veterans are losing service benefits at a rapid rate. With lowered funding for support programs and the rising trend of soldiers being reactivated for a second tour of duty, there is little incentive to remain in the service.

[Jennifer Giese of the 826th Ordinance ]While the unit suffered no fatalities in Iraq, they were plagued the entire time by supply chain glitches. The unit never received body armor, and had to resort to stealing scrap metal for vehicle armor. Bottled water had to be rationed due to shortages, but Giese later filled a swimming pool for a general's use.

"This was a complete, chaotic mess," Giese said. "In my opinion there was no plan ... no one knew where we were going."

----------------------------------------

If you are watching tv supposed news, you would get the impression that everything going wrong with our country is John Kerry's fault. The media allows this. Our media is corrupt and must be challenged. CNN, MSNBC, FOX should not be allowed to use the word "news" in their slogans or their titles. "News" insinuates reporting of facts. Americans are being misled by faux news and faux reporting.

Rampant Sexism

Abortion crusade turns Republican women off Bush

Can you believe it? Well I can believe it because women, sorry guys, are intuitively more intelligent than men are, generally speaking. Women can easily see through the lies and distortions of the current republican party. We can see that their so-called "pro-life" stance is just a political ploy. The bush administration's actions in every other situation clearly show a disregard for human life and a deep hatred for women. For a neocon republican, the only good woman is a barefoot and pregnant woman.

Moderate republican women are calling for a return to the original republican party. A group called "Republicans Who Want Their Party Back". It's about time.

Characteristic of Fascism 5. Rampant Sexism -- The governments of fascist nations tend to be almost exclusively male-dominated. Under fascist regimes, traditional gender roles are made more rigid. Opposition to abortion is high, as is homophobia and antigay legislation and national policy.
