How long are we, the American people, going to let this arrogant little prick flip us off? When is enough, enough?
After withdrawing Sam Fox's name from consideration for the post of Ambassador to Belgium, (Kerry Sinks Swiftboat Backer) due to strong opposition by Democrats, George Bush pulled an end around this week and used a "Recess Appointment" to reward Fox for his slimy participation in the Switfboats Veteran's For Truth's smearing of Senator John Kerry's service record in the last Presidential Election, by naming him Ambassador while Congress was on recess.
The arrogance with which Bush "rules" smacks of the kind of totalitarianism usually reserved for Monarchs and Emperors. Now the Democrats must call for yet another investigation into the way this Administration does business. This appears to be a preview of the way our Government is going to function until Bush and his Crime Cartel are out of office. Bush will do whatever he wants and the rest of us will be running behind him trying to fix the damage he leaves in his wake.
Unless, ofcourse, he is Impeached. I fully realize that this would leave us in the hands of the Devil himself, Dick Cheney, but perhaps the Impeachment proceedings will reveal the depth of Criminality this Administration has engaged in and result in prosecution of all parties involved.
That would be too much to hope for, but maybe now, the newly elected Congress will realize what they are up against and act accordingly. So, Madam Speaker, put it back on the Table before it's too late!
Dems Call for Review of Bush Appointment

WASHINGTON - Democrats called for an investigation Thursday into whether President Bush acted illegally in appointing Sam Fox ambassador to Belgium.
A day earlier, Bush named Republican fundraiser Fox to the post as a recess appointment _ a maneuver that allowed him to bypass Congress, where Democrats had derailed his nomination.
"We view the recess appointment of Mr. Fox as a clear abuse of the President's recess appointment power," three Democratic senators wrote in a letter to the Government Accountability Office, Congress' auditing agency.
I strongly urge everyone to write, call or e-mail their elected officials and demand and end to the Rule of King George. It's time to make our beloved country a Democracy again.

Now that the President and his minions have gone on the attack, blaming Congress for any future failures in Iraq, I feel it is more important than ever to get the Truth out, and who better to do so than a Retired Marine Corps Lt. Colonel who actually served in Iraq.
Please take a moment to listen to this. Then share it with friends or acquaintances who may be on the fence over this all important issue. While Bush blathers on about 9/11 and terrorists "following us home", selling fear and the threat of destruction to the American Public, our borders and ports go unguarded, our shipping containers from abroad go unchecked and our sons, daughters, mothers, fathers, wives and husbands continue to die in his War of Choice. It is only the 4th of April and already nine more Americans have died this month!
Listen carefully to Lt. Colonel Horne and then decide if "The Decider" has made the right decision.
Semper Fidelis Colonel!

Now THAT's Hardcore!
I have always loved this guy. Friends, in my 25 plus years in the Movie business, I have smoked enough Grass to cover the Blue Ridge Mountains.
In my day, I have snorted enough cocaine to fill 20 freight trains. I have tried everything from Acid to Ecstasy, from Crack to Heroin, I have consumed enough scotch & beer to fill the Great Lakes. Shit, I even tried to smoke banana peels when Donovan first sang about "Elec-tric-ka Bananas"!
But I ain't never done nothing like this...
By Associated PressLONDON - Keith Richards has acknowledged consuming a raft of illegal substances in his time, but this may top them all. In comments published Tuesday, the 63-year-old Rolling Stones guitarist said he had snorted his father's ashes mixed with cocaine.
"The strangest thing I've tried to snort? My father. I snorted my father," Richards was quoted as saying by British music magazine NME. (More)
All I can say is, Dad, don't get cremated!
Without further ado, I give you the Madman himself!
And just for old times sake...
Rock and Roll will never die!
Well it seems I have confessed to my mis-spent youth in vain! You got it! April Fool's on deuddersun! I like the guy's sense of humor though...lol!
Richards Denies Snorting His Dad's Ashes

To some, they are "pets". To others, "animals". To daMagster and me, and countless others, they are part of our families.
The recent Pet Food recall from Menu Foods has grown yet again. More brands have been added to the list of potentially fatal Pet Food products, including "snacks".
So far, Purina only has one product on the list. Prime Cuts in Gravy. So far. Purina products are what daMagster and I feed our "kids", Cappy, the happy, one-eyed wonderdog pictured with me above, and our two cats, Rachel, Mag's "familiar", (black, of course), and Sweetpea, our deaf cat who responds to hand signals and comes when she is "called".
The list of contaminated food products is huge and it shows no sign of abating. On the contrary, it seems to grow longer each and every day. With that in mind, daMagster and I have decided to forego "pet" food and prepare our kids dinners ourselves. We highly recommend this to any of my readers who have "extended" families. Why take the chance with a loved one? The joy these little creatures bring to our lives is immeasurable and priceless and compared to us, their little lives are already way too short.
While trying to find the latest information on the web I came across a wonderful website which addresses this and other "pet" concerns admirably well, Ask Susan Peters. If you have any questions concerning this or other "pet" concerns, the answers can be found here. Below you will find a link to this site as well as links to the FDA , Menu Foods and Purina.
I can tell you this. If one of our little guys dies because of this, a Class Action Lawsuit will be the last thing the folks at Menu Foods will have to worry about. There will be one pissed off Marine heading north for retribution. In typical Corporate fashion, Menu Foods has been buying their Wheat Gluten from China, a country that can barely keep it's own drinking water clean. I'm sure it was cheaper than American or Canadian wheat gluten initially, but now, the costs to Menu Foods will be substantial, if only because millions of people can no longer trust them to feed their "pets".
Please consider doing what we are doing. Chicken and ground beef isn't that much more expensive than what we normally feed our "kids". Throw in a little rice and you're all set. Susan Peters actually has recipes that you can use to make your own "pet" food dinners, God Bless her!
Okay. The links are below. I'm off to the market! Take care of those who give you unconditional love!

Remember, support is more than just a magnetic ribbon.
Dear VoteVets.org Supporter,
This weekend, I delivered the national radio response to the President's address. In my response, I talk about the legislation that passed both the House and Senate which supports our troops with desperately needed funding, but for the first time requires accountability from the President, and a real change of course in Iraq. I directly challenge the President to not veto any funds for the troops because he is afraid of changing course and showing progress in Iraq. You can listen to my radio address here.
This is just one more example of how VoteVets.org is the veterans group taking the lead in changing the course in Iraq, and demanding a path home for our men and women - safely and responsibly. VoteVets.org doesn't mince words, and it doesn't shrink away from the tough fights, or sit on the sidelines while the most important debate in recent American history rages. As a Marine, I'm proud of that. As an American, I'm even prouder.
I hope you're proud of this fine group of 21st Century American Patriots, as well. Do your part to support us, and the troops and veterans. Take a moment to email 5 of your friends, family, and neighbors, and ask them to join us, by signing up at www.votevets.org.
Lt. Col. (ret.) Andrew Horne,
Iraq War Veteran and
Senior Advisor, VoteVets.org
