That’s (Mass) Entertainment

Monday, January 29th, 2007

President Bush and VP Cheney have repeatedly said that domestic spying is only done to catch terrorists and their communications in the US. They have defended their domestic spying practices as 'vital to national security' and have gone to great lengths to defend even the illegal activities they have undertaken. But ...

What IF we win in Iraq?

Friday, January 26th, 2007

Winning at this point is open to interpretation. I understand that. Any type of objective could happen and someone could sit back and say, "winner"!! But take a step further down the rabbit hole... What if Bush's surge plan, actually... Works? A huge "IF" since nothing has ...
