REMF too Scared to do It's J.O.B. LOL

Diplomats ‘upset over forced postings to Iraq.’

In a “contentious” hour-long “town hall meeting” today, several hundred U.S. diplomats “vented anger and frustration Wednesday about the State Department’s decision to force foreign service officers to take jobs in Iraq, with some likening it to a ‘potential death sentence.’” The AP reports on the exchange:

“Incoming is coming in every day, rockets are hitting the Green Zone,” said Jack Crotty, a senior foreign service officer who once worked as a political adviser with NATO forces. […]

“It’s one thing if someone believes in what’s going on over there and volunteers, but it’s another thing to send someone over there on a forced assignment,” Crotty said. “I’m sorry, but basically that’s a potential death sentence and you know it. Who will raise our children if we are dead or seriously wounded?”

“You know that at any other (country) in the world, the embassy would be closed at this point,” Crotty said to loud and sustained applause from the about 300 diplomats who attended the meeting in a large State Department auditorium.

Paul Donnelly Sicks the FBI on Elmo!

theAmericanist is a commenter at The Washington Monthly, he says his name is Paul Donnelly. I've been fucking with him for weeks over his criticism of a grunt in Iraq named Scott Beauchamp. Check out "Paul's" last comment to me. What a pansy...

Ahh... I hadn't made the connection. (The previous email had been tagged as spam.)

My invitation was to Grape. Unless it's really relevant, I generally leave my meatspace life out of posts like this, and I make a practice (which I actually practice most of the time)to stay away from thread debates that come too close. Besides, the thread isn't about me, and getting mis-cast as a right whinge (?) isn't the worst distortion I've seen here. So I invited Grape to email me if she wanted to know more -- not you, Elmo.

Since this is the second time you've emailed me directly, it's something like stalking, given the things you say here and the utter lack of anything useful in any of your posts.

(to the mods) So I'm taking the precaution of forwarding his emails to me, and a couple of Elmo's posts regarding me, to the FBI.

Like I said, dude: you've got issues. Get therapy.

My Senator Told Me the SCHIP Expansion was for Fuckn' Yankees

Here, I'll give you the entire email sent to me by Sen. John Cornyntheholyo...

I was privileged to get out of Washington and talk with Texans from Houston to Lubbock, and from Dallas to Mission and Pharr during a brief Columbus Day break last week. We addressed a wide variety of issues facing our state—controlling and combating drug use among young people in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, making certain we retain local control of schools, repairing our immigration and border control systems, and keeping federal taxes low and maintaining our economic expansion.

Congress and the President are currently at an impasse over the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP). It has prompted a debate in Texas over how we can improve delivery of health care and encourage broader coverage for Texans and all Americans, while maintaining the strong points of our current system. Last week I called on Democratic leaders in Congress to work with me and others to reach a bipartisan solution. My position on SCHIP can be summarized in three points:

1) Reauthorize SCHIP—Cover Poor Texas Children First. I support reauthorization of SCHIP with sufficient additional funding to cover all eligible children that Texas health authorities can enroll. I voted for a $10 billion funding increase. The plan I support will ensure renewed focus on SCHIP’s original intent—covering Texas children in working poor families. We need to fully fund the Texas Legislature’s commitment for increased enrollment. But the Democratic majority bill, vetoed by President Bush last week, would divert Texas taxpayer money to expand and subsidize the SCHIP program for middle-class adults in northern states.

2) Address Key Texas Problems—Outreach and Enrollment. The Kids First bill I support tackles the central problems facing Texas better than the majority version. Approximately 700,000 Texas children are currently eligible but not enrolled in either SCHIP or Medicaid. Kids First provides $700 million for outreach and enrollment. The majority plan contains only a token $100 million over five years for critical outreach efforts. We should concentrate on locating and signing up those who need assistance, not on expanding the program outside its intended beneficiary.

3) Cover Texas Uninsured—Don’t Raise Taxes on Working Poor/Middle Class. We must seek broader health care solutions to address the high rate of uninsured children in our state. The plan I support covers additional Texas children without raising taxes on lower and middle class families. The majority bill balloons SCHIP by more than 140 percent to potentially include families of four with $83,000 of annual income. It relies on an accounting trick that will guarantee higher taxes, both immediately and again in the future.

U.S. Senator John Cornyn, douche bag extraordinaire.

America, it has been five years. It's time to make a choice.

Read this op-ed written by 12 former Army Captains. They want us to institute a draft or get the fuck out of Iraq.

To continue an operation of this intensity and duration, we would have to abandon our volunteer military for compulsory service. Short of that, our best option is to leave Iraq immediately.

So what do you say wingnuts? How's about we listen to the real boots on the ground? Or does a draft scare the living shit out of you? Are you going to call these soldiers liars and wimps? Well, you little bitches, are you?

Capitalism’s Gravediggers

Well, the report is in. We are now officially a Fascist nation. Sorry Capitalism, you were just too weak.

The wealthiest 1% of Americans earned 21.2% of all income in 2005.

The bottom 50% of Americans earned 12.8% of all income in 2005.

I think it's time the bottom 50% kicked the top 1%'s ass...

Oh look, honey, Fascism came to visit! How cute, he's wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross!

Welcome back my friends, to the show that never ends. I'm so glad you could attend, come inside, come inside!

Give up your pre-9/11 thinking boys and girls and embrace the militant Jesus! He kicks Muslim ass! Gone are the days of hotdogs and apple pie, these are the days of smart bombs, crude oil and paramilitary units! The non-believers shall be purged, only evangelizing within the ranks will be permitted. Corporatization will rule the land, and you will like it...or else.
