colbert roasts bush

thank you stephen colbert

this performance took balls

scorching the administration

this blistering comedy “tribute” to bush left george and laura unsmiling at its close

"No wonder Bush left in a snit. He got shown up for what he is --- by someone who pretends to love him."

bush has broken more that 750 laws since he took office...

here's how democracy works:

"Bush is the first president in modern history who has never vetoed a bill, giving Congress no chance to override his judgments. Instead, he has signed every bill that reached his desk, often inviting the legislation's sponsors to signing ceremonies at which he lavishes praise upon their work.

Then, after the media and the lawmakers have left the White House, Bush quietly files ''signing statements" -- official documents in which a president lays out his legal interpretation of a bill for the federal bureaucracy to follow when implementing the new law.

In his signing statements, Bush has repeatedly asserted that the Constitution gives him the right to ignore numerous sections of the bills -- sometimes including provisions that were the subject of negotiations with Congress in order to get lawmakers to pass the bill. He has appended such statements to more than one of every 10 bills he has signed."

i guess democracy means the power to violate any law you find inconvenient, that's bush's gift to the world

bush's america is a democratic dictatorship ...

"we now live in a nation in which the president has the omnipotent power to ignore all constitutional restraints on his power"

"Bush now wields the same omnipotent, dictatorial powers that other dictators in history have wielded"

my theme song

Your Theme Song is Soak Up The Sun by Sheryl Crow

"I've got no one to blame
For every time I feel lame
I'm looking up"

You're laid back, optimistic, and very together
Like the sun, people feel warm and comfortable around you

rush goes down the river

hypocrite drug addict gets booked for prescription drug fraud

"Drug use, some might say, is destroying this country. And we have laws against selling drugs, pushing drugs, using drugs, importing drugs. And the laws are good because we know what happens to people in societies and neighborhoods which become consumed by them. And so if people are violating the law by doing drugs, they ought to be accused and they ought to be convicted and they ought to be sent up." -- Rush Limbaugh. October 5, 1995 show transcript.

he's grinning like a jackass because he just bought his way out of jail

seven spiritual paths

Path #5 -- Seeking Creativity, Freedom, Uniqueness

everyone has a unique perspective of reality

(1) if there is justice in this life, then no afterlife is necessary

(2) but if there is no justice in this life, then one has no reason to believe that god is just

(3) however, if one has no reason to believe that god is just, then we have no reason to believe he will provide us with an afterlife

(4) so, either no afterlife is needed, or else we have no reason to think god will provide one

from maureen dowd

a prius in every pot ...

"The U.S. could have begun developing alternative fuels 30 years ago if Dick Cheney hadn't helped scuttle an ambitious plan in the Ford administration"

exxon mobile nets $93,000,000 a day

the face of exxon mobile

for all the conspiracy nuts

no 757 hit the pentagon

save the internet

from corporate america

"What the telecoms are trying to get away with is like this: suppose you ran a business, and your product was delivered by FedEx, with your customers paying FedEx for it. Now suppose FedEx came to you one day and said, "You are making a nice profit off our delivery service. Besides what your customers pay, I also want you to pay us for it, or else your deliveries are going to be a lot slower, if they make it there at all."

thank god for wireless

nice try kenny boy

arianna reminds us of kenny boy buying political power from bush/cheney, who sell to the highest bidder

live life to the extreme in whatever you do

impeach bush

CIA officer reveals bush, cheney, and rice were personally told iraq had no wmd in fall 2002

"The idea of going after Iraq was U.S. policy. It was going to happen one way or the other"

imagine this: the video

halliburton imports workers from the world's most impoverished nations to do the menial jobs at US bases in iraq

bush blames his problems on god ...

"I base a lot of my foreign policy decisions on some things that I think are true. One, I believe there's an Almighty. And, secondly, I believe one of the great gifts of the Almighty is the desire in everybody's soul, regardless of what you look like or where you live, to be free."

"free" is code for born-again christians

if bush was a girl? what would he look like?

how the end will come

the rapture is crapture (part I) ...

"The Rapture is an all-American, jumbo-colossal, Southern-style end-times racket. (Super-save me Jesus!) It makes all previous religious opiates look like Sominex. "

"I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do because I notice it always coincides with their own desires." - Susan B. Anthony

impermanence makes life possible, which makes life worth living

you cannot wake up someone who is only pretending to be asleep

happy earth day

also my birthday

save the internet

from congressional corporate greed

"Congress is pushing a law that would abandon Network Neutrality, the Internet’s First Amendment. Network neutrality prevents companies like AT&T, Verizon and Comcast from deciding which Web sites work the best — based on who pays them the most. "

"If the public doesn’t speak up now, Congress will cave to a multi-million dollar lobbying campaign by telephone and cable companies that want to decide what you do, where you go, and what you watch online. "

compassionate conservatism

bush's FDA lies about medical benefits of marijuana

their solution is to let people suffer and waste away

blinding bush with science

the slippery slope smokescreen...

"No consequence of this apparently terrifying slippery slope comes close to warranting the ignorance and barbarism it takes to sustain the spectacularly failing drug war"

my religion

atheism is a liberating world view

"atheism is not a religion. It is quite simply a fundamental world view that asserts that to date there has been no evidence for the existence (reality) of gods. Logically, it is therefore incumbent on believers to support their claims rather than the reverse"

"Atheists have observed that the deeper the religious belief the more there is a lack of intellectual integrity"

"God, faith, religion, and the supernatural are, in the atheist's world view, the causes of the delusional wishful thinking that has at best, wasted man's time and at worst, been responsible for his most awful behaviors"

from ted rall

don't impeach bush, commit him

"Bushspeak is crafted to ensure that what Mr. Straightshooter says is rarely what he means"

bush approval at 33% among the special people watching fox news

paul krugman describes the great revulsion ...

"a moment in which the American people look at what is happening, realize how their good will and patriotism have been abused, and put a stop to this drive to destroy much of what is best in our country"
