The GOP needs to be Ousted on Tuesday - Go Vote!

what a shady character- for the Grateful Web

After 6 years of incompetence, hypocrisy, corruption, and fear based tactics, the time has come for change.

Let's revisit a portion of Republican corruption...

1) Mark  Foley (and the republicans trying to cover it up because they're more concerned with keeping a seat in congress than protecting children).  Hastert needs to be fired immediately.  The fat f(*k sweats in the winter time.

2) Abu Ghraib prison

3) Jack Abramoff with ties to all kinds of GOP including Dick "oil can" Cheney and Dubya, the dumbest & most inarticulate president America has even seen.

4) Halliburton (only company to get a bid on 'rebuilding' Iraq and Cheney's former company...

5) Cheney shooting a friend in face, after having "two beers"

6) Tom DeLay

7) Congressman Bob Ney

8)  Bush's "Mission Accomplished"  - lied to America about weapons of mass destruction, etc. over 600K dead innocent Iraqi civilians - and Bush claims he's "pro-life"  - 2829 dead American GI's for Bush's war for oil.  44,779 injured American troops. -  (http://www.icasualties.org/oif/) bookmark this site! (eight more dead GI's just yesterday!  Has the GOP supporters become desensitized to American GI deaths!?)

All this war time gung-ho, stay the course, bullshit coming from Dick Cheney who never served a day of military service and Dubya who went AWOL.  Kerry, while a big mouth, is a war time veteran with 3 purple hearts.  And the truth is, he's right. I am the perfect example. I f*c)*d around in high school and my dad kicked me out of the house. I had no choice but to join the military, like many of the enlisted American heroes in Iraq.  That's right; I am a veteran of the US Air Force.

9) Senator Conrad Burns (Montana) - more Abramoff ties and one of the least effective senators, just like Colorado's own Wayne Allard.

10) Curt Weldon - congressman in PA federal investigators examine charges that he steered lobbying contracts to his daughter.

11)  Rep. Don Sherwood (Pa.), who has been dogged by the settlement of a lawsuit filed by a mistress who charged that Sherwood had throttled her.

12) Congress watchers once saw the swing seat of Rep. Rick Renzi (R-Ariz.) as a missed opportunity for Democrats. But now, as the U.S. attorney's office in Phoenix examines his role in a land deal for a business partner and political benefactor, Renzi's race with political neophyte Ellen Simon (D) has tightened.

13) Rep. Jon Porter (R-Nev.) has had to contend with charges lodged last month by a longtime former aide, Jim Shepard, that the lawmaker made dozens of illegal fundraising calls from his congressional offices. And two reliably Republican districts in California are under assault by Democrats because Reps. Richard W. Pombo and John T. Doolittle have been linked to Abramoff, the lobbyist who pleaded guilty in January to fraud, tax evasion and conspiracy to bribe public officials.

14) Rep. Katherine Harris (R), was the target of local media reports this week detailing his use of business entities in Caribbean tax havens to reduce levies on his auto dealerships.

15) Rep. Christopher Shays (R-Conn.), who made his name pushing campaign finance changes and governance reforms, was confronted with media reports alleging that a 2003 trip to Qatar - partly funded by a group loosely tied to Abramoff - had not been properly disclosed.

16) Rep. Thomas M. Reynolds (N.Y.) chose to issue a public apology after he admitted that he had known about inappropriate contact between Foley and a former page this spring.

The GOP is the most corrupt bunch of f*(k*rs in the history of American politics. They are going down on Tuesday.  Do your part to vote the GOP out of office. It's time for a change.

There has been much talk about the Republican "base" of Evangelical voters and Christian conservatives banding their flocks together to keep Republicans in power this election. However, many of them are starting to wake up to the fact that they are being used on a grand scale. And yet there are still those who are "asleep at the pew" and ready to vote Republican on baseless moral grounds. I have a question I would love to ask of all the religious wingnuts. If their mythology is true and Jesus decided to come back tomorrow, how do they think George W. Bush, his demonic administration, and Republican enablers in Congress would react? A) Would they allow a peace loving, liberal, hippie to make peace on Earth and all men and women to be equal? OR B)Go to war with God to maintain their power, control, and fortunes? They know the answer would be (B)! So my next question would be... Doesn't that make him the Antichrist according to their mythology??? No wonder they call it a "flock!" It's hard for a president to convince anyone he is pro-life when it comes to banning stem cell research while thousands are being sent to their deaths in Iraq. It is also ironic that the very party that puts forth a homophobic agenda turns out to be full of closeted homosexuals and pedophiles. It's not what you say, it's what you do. For real Christians and people of faith the mantra for the next election cycles should be, "It's the hypocrisy stupid!" We have all heard the acronym, "WWJD - What would Jesus Do," but a more suitable acronym in this age of hypocrisy would be, "WWTDTJ - What would They Do to Jesus!"

The zealous right wingers out there implying, or outright stating, that these recent scandals involving the republican party are some kind of leftist media conspiracy to affect the upcoming elections aren't fooling anyone but others such as yourselves, who will clearly never vote anything but republican, no matter what the republicans in office do. I notice you don't question the validity of these reports. And what of the other republican scandals from well before the elections? You know like the ones involving Jack Abramoff, Tom Delay, Duke Cunningham, Bob Ney, etc., etc., etc. Not to mention an administration which continually lied to the nation and the whole world about aluminum tubes from Afica and WMD's in Iraq to start an unjust war resulting in the deaths of thousands of innocent Iraqis and Americans; and a spineless congress that rubber stamps whatever the administration wants. And they want to condemn the entire Democratic Party for a verbal faux pas by John Kerry? Please. Be it months before the election, during the election or after the election the republicans in charge are scumbags who are only in it for themselves and just fill peoples' heads with propaganda to try to convince them otherwise.

Yup... it's ugly. I'm aware of all the corruption... I can't stand seeing

Tom DeLay's face on TV, and I can't tell which has been more annoying and

tiring... listening to the latest OJ saga, or what's going on with Foley

scandal.

It's embarrassing as an American. (The Halliburton deal really gets me.

That's our money their wasting... more than $1 billion so far... money we go

to work for every day. The incompetence of our elected officials is

unbelievable.)

So... ok... this is the last thing I have to say about the deal... I

promise, because I can hardly take any more of it.

I'm not commenting about one party or another. They all suck ass in my

opinion.

I don't care about party affiliation anymore. I don't care about

republicans, democrats, independents, or anything dealing with division of

ideas, morals, and values.

Just my personal view about what one guy said... how shockingly stupid of a

thing that was said, and all the negativity in general going on in

Washington. It makes no difference to me what party Kerry affiliates with.

I've lost respect for the whole lot of them.

Our "leaders" in Washington can't get along with each other, even amongst

their own parties. They simply can not do it. They refuse to do it.

And I'm tired of it. But it's my own fault for listening to too much news,

as I'm trying to pay attention to this election cycle.

I shouldn't have said anything. It was just so bizarre when I got home and

saw this on the news. But that's it for me, because it's only spreading

more negativity. That's why I hardly talk about this stuff anyway.

That said, I really do wish God would pay Capitol Hill a visit and give em'

all a swift kick in the ass.

Now I have some Dead tunes to burn to CD... which is a much better use of

time.

I have to make a correction... I meant to say anything dealing with division of ideas, morals, and values into political parties.

Did you know that J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis were good friends? Tolkien was known to accuse C.S. Lewis of writing too hastily. And C.S. Lewis would tell Tolkien he took too much time to get things written.

There were 5 of them... called the inksters. All of them would get together and read to each other pieces of literature they were currently working on. I can't remember who the other 3 were.

C.S. Lewis had to prod Tolkien along to do the work of finalizing his story, getting a publisher and getting it out to the market.

So we may have C.S. Lewis to thank for badgering Tolkien about this.

I'm not saying Tolkien was lazy... maybe that part of the job is not the most fun thing to do for some writers. But I think more probable is that he was a perfectionist and didn't want to put it out until he was convinced it was perfect, which might have never happened without C.S. Lewis as his friend.
