Achtung Baby!!!


...has become the battle cry for peace all over the country mire hours after the news 'Elmo' was captured by insurgents while on a USO tour stop in the al Ambar Province, Iraq. President Bush's approval rating dove to 18% and Red states all over the country turned blue over night.

The Bush administration, away on vacation, has yet to release a statement on the news. Further flaming several conspiracy theories and leaving millions wondering if they even care.

Story developing...

Elmo Drops out of Race

In a surprising turn of events today, Elmo from Blind in Texas, was called before the blogger ethics committee for a closed hearing that lasted several hours. After the hearing Elmo immediately dropped out of the race for Best New Blog and gave a brief statement…

"I want my readers, both of you, to understand I am no pervert. I swear to God she told me she was 18."

Bush is a Baby Killer

This is way too harsh...but I don't give'a fuck. Pretend your the soldier who has to search the rubble of a building your unit just called an air strike on, you have three kids of your own...and find this. If you want to tell me "Elmo, your way out of line here" then all I can say is fuck you. I'm enraged. Elaine is correct...this is bad, bad karma.

Terrell Owens is a Cowboy Baby!!!

Of course I used to criticize T.O., but I was misunderstood. The media obviously has overblown all the negative while ignoring the positive aspects of his personality.

Or maybe, since he is a Cowboy now, I'm seeing him through rose-colored glasses. GO COWBOY'S!!!

Iraqi Exodus

You wouldn't stay...but that's still the wrong answer. I'd get my family out as fast as possible too. Returning to fight for my homeland would be inevitable, but only after my family was safe. Priorities...

Tens of thousands of mostly young Iraqi professionals, artisans, musicians, college professors and doctors have left in search of security and stability abroad.

What you would say...

"I simply don't want to get killed by an illiterate, black-clad slum dweller, or a militiaman dressed in police uniform, or a young confused soldier from Texas, or a bearded fundamentalist from Yemen or Saudi Arabia."

SXSW Songs of the Day

From Lyons, CO Uncle Earl: Coffees Cold

From Los Angeles, CA Flogging Molly: The Seven Deadly Sins

...several children in your neighborhood, including yours, killed in a sudden flash of violence. Would you be look'n for a little payback? Imagine...

South by Southwest Music Festival XX

I have a love/hate relationship with SXSW. I love the influx of cool bands, but I hate having to pay through the ass to see 'em. I hate that it's hard as hell to find a good Austin band for Band of the Week when the show list looks like this. But, I love that I can get off my Texas music motif and blog bands from all over the world...since they're in Austin this week. That said, Today's SXSW songs of the day...

From Hamilton, ON: Sail Boats are White: Veto

From Bellingham, WA : The Shook Ones: Slaughter of the Insole

From Connecticut, CT: Apathy: The Winter Feat Blue Rapsberry

You've lost that lovin' feelin' - by Dick 'n Bushisms

Produced by: Low Approval Rating and Russ "BitchSlapper" Feingold

You never close your eyes anymore
When I kill your kids...
And there's no tenderness like before
In your comments...
You're trying very hard to show it ('Murika)
Now baby, baby I know it...

You've lost that lovin' feelin'
Woah, that lovin' feelin'
You've lost that lovin' feelin'
Now it's gone, gone, gone woah...

Now there's no welcome look in your eyes
When I preach to you...
And you've started to criticize
All the stupid things I dooooo...
It makes me feel like crying
Cause baby' something so fruitful is dying...

You've lost that lovin' feelin'
Woah, that lovin' feelin'
You've lost that lovin' feelin'
Now it's gone, gone, gone, woah...

Oh my 'Murika
I'd get down on my knees for you...
If you'd only trust me
Like the way you used to doooo...
We had a love, a con
A love you can't con every day
So don't, don't, don't
Please don't take it away

Baby (baby)
Baby (baby)
I need your love (never mind your phone's bugged)
I need your love (ooooh)
Bring it on back (ooooh)
Bring it on baaaaaaaack!

Bring back that lovin' feelin'
Woah, that lovin' feelin'
Bring back that lovin' feelin'
Before I'm gone, impeached, gone
And I can't go on, woah...

You've lost that lovin' feelin'
Woah, that lovin' feelin'
You've lost that lovin' feelin
Now it's gone...gone...gone, woah...

Cindy Sheehan's got more Balls than any ChichenHawk Punk Ass Bitch

My Gold Star Mom friend Amy Branham sends Elmo a message to deliver from Cindy. (regarding her resent encounter with The Fed's and New York Police.)

Cindy Sheehan...

As I lie here in bed recuperating from the injuries that I received from a federal agent and the NYPD in front of the US Mission to the UN (USUN) the other day, I have had time to reflect on the experience, the state of our union and its descent into a fascist state.

When the four of us. Missy Beattie, Rev. Patricia Ackerman, Medea Benjamin, and I, were arrested the other day, I was singled out for federal police brutality. The other three ladies were picked up, noth gingerly, though, and I was dragged across the pavement and treated very, very roughly—having both arms wrenched out from beneath me. I looked to my doctor as if I had been beaten. My daughter, Janey, asked if I had been resisting arrest, I told her if one considers going into a fetal position and saying, "Please don't hurt me anymore!" resisting, then I guess I was.

Why was I targeted for the abuse? Is it revenge for my work at exposing the lies of BushCo, of which John Bolton is a leading co-criminal? Or is it to discourage other activists from taking the same path I have taken: demanding an end to the illegal and immoral occupation of Iraq, and demanding that our freedoms be returned to us? I wish the Senate had the courage to stand up to the fascists in our government—or are the 90 who voted "Yea" to extend the Patriot Act also co-slitherers into fascism?

Neocon John Bolton has had a long and checkered career of lying and doing dirty work for the regime. In 1994 he harassed and terrified whistle-blower Melody Townsel who worked for US AID. She urged the Senate Foreign Relation Committee not to approve Bolton's nomination and she wrote in a letter to them: "John Bolton put me through hell - and he did everything he could to intimidate, malign and threaten not just me, but anybody unwilling to go along with his version of events. His behavior back in 1994 wasn't just unforgivable, it was pathological." Not only has John Bolton not been punished for this incident and other involving harassment and abuse, he was rewarded with a recess appointment to the UN when George Bush, again, circumvented our political processes.

L. Paul Bremer slunk, under the cover of darkness, out of Iraq two months after my son, Casey, was killed there with $8.8 BILLION missing from the Coalition Provisional Authority. Has L. Paul been held accountable for the missing money? No, as a matter of fact, he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom and is a highly paid speaker on the rubber chickenhawk Republican circuit.

Such war profiteers as Halliburton are raping the American tax payer of billions of dollars as a matter of company policy. A Halliburton whistle blower accused the company of charging us $45.00 per case of soda and ten thousand dollars a night to stay in Kuwait's finest hotels. They charge immoral prices to feed our soldiers who often complain of rotten food. Our young people even have to pay to have their laundry done by these outrageous over-chargers. Have they been punished or monetarily penalized for these crimes? No, as a matter of fact, Halliburton gets awarded more no-bid contracts in America and around the world.

A book could be written about the felonies of the Bush Crime Family and their mafia-style buddies, but I am running out of space. George Bush has committed crimes against humanity and high crimes and misdemeanors in his tenure as (P)resident of the White House. Has he been held accountable for any of this? No, he spends his nights and days comfortable and content in the fact that he is a lame duck, already rich, and knowing that Congress is spineless and he won't be impeached for his transgressions that have caused the deaths of so many thousands of people worldwide.

When we were in the cockroach and feces-decorated jail system in NYC the other night, we met some other women who felt they had to resort to crime to try to survive in BushWorld. We met intelligent young women who felt their last resort was to resort to victimless crimes. Now for their petty thefts, they will have to spend months in institutions where they are stripped of any human dignity or comfort. All of the women we met knew they broke the law and were resigned to their punishment but where is the justice in our system where all people are supposedly equal?

However, we four white, middle-class women were the lucky ones. We only had to spend one night in jail and we knew our lawyers would be there in the morning to spring us. When we were heading for court, we walked by our sisters in the holding cell and our hearts sank, because we know what it is like to spend even one night in jail. Our souls also connected with our sisters and brothers all over the world who are imprisoned in far worse conditions by the policies of BushCo and are being inhumanely tortured by these same medieval and draconian policies.

Even if John Bolton, L. Paul Bremer, George Bush, Halliburton execs, etc. ad nauseum are ever punished, we all know the conditions won't be (but should be) as harsh as those of the other people who live in subhuman conditions because of them. These people operate on the standard of having all the money and all the power and they don't care for anyone who they victimize on their way to obtaining their obscene and ill-gotten gains.

One of our so-called crimes in front of USUN was "Obstructing Governmental Administration." I say "Hell, yes! Anyone with a conscience or any moral courage should be doing everything in his/her power to obstruct the administration of the Bush government. Only massive, peaceful, non-violent resistance to his calamitous policies will be able to stem the dreadful tide!
That is why we need to stand up to the neo-fascists and take our humanity back.

While we are still able. I will stand up to them again and again, I just hope next time that they drag me by my good arm!

U Can't Touch This

Wednesday, March 01, 2006


This could be America one day...

“There will be no problem,” My aunt said sternly, looking at each of us, thin-lipped. “You will not say anything improper and they will come in, look around and go.” Her eyes lingered on Ammoo S. He was silent. He had lit a cigarette and was inhaling deeply. J. said he’d begun smoking again a couple of months ago after having quit for ten years. “Are your papers ready?” She asked him, referring to his identification papers which would be requested. He didn’t answer, but nodded his head silently.
