Open thread or Open threat ... Take Your Pick

While the Party of Torture and Perverts has been busying itself with profiteering over the past several years in Iraq, one of the real looney-birds of modern times has moved steadily toward joining the Club . . . and may very well have detonated a nuclear bomb this week. For those interesed in a thorough, yet compact, summary of what's at stake right now in the wake of the recent developments, this article is as good as it gets.

The furor over Kim Jong Il’s missile tests and nuclear brinksmanship obscures the real threat: the prospect of North Korea’s catastrophic collapse. How the regime ends could determine the balance of power in Asia for decades. The likely winner? China.


There might be something on CBS evening news tonight

I'm taping on the DVR, but don't know how to get it on the puter from there. Word is Larry rocked at the debate today. Hayes showed up for this one. Also heard every news channel and NPR, etc were all there. It was just the little old Democratic Women's annual WTVI debate. That was probably a shocker!

Vote Democratic, the ass you save may be your own.

Remember the 2004 Debate...

One of the questions was should the US talk to North Korea unilaterally.

Kerry said, in effect, sure, we should try anything that keeps North Korea from getting nukes.

Bush said, in effect, no, that will not work so we might as well not even try.

So when those who voted for Bush read about the big nuclear bang this week, they should be proud. After all, they voted for it.

I'm sorry

But I flat-out cannot stomach anyone who voted for Bush.

Even my bumpersticker says: "I wish you had not voted for George Bush" - God

Good stuff about the elections

Heath going after NASCAR dads

Not a bad idea

With this week being at Charlotte, especially this weekend. I know Bob Graham did this a while back on one of Jack Roush's trucks. At the time I thought, hmmmmm, but the more I thought about it, the more sense it makes. In Graham's case, it was a high profile team, and since Jack is from Michigan, and a 'liberal' thorn in NASCAR's side, hey, why not? (my conjecture), But with Coleman Racing, (no offense to Keith Coleman intended), it's not a top tier team (but a good solid team) and I'd be afraid of the parallel if they don't run well. That being said, the underdog sometimes does win, witness David Gilliland whipping all the big teams a few months ago, and that landed him a Cup ride w/ Robert Yates. You can make the same parallel with Heath. The "underdog" comes out of nowhere and whips the "big dogs". Good Luck Friday night to Coleman Racing AND Heath Shuler!

To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only UNPATRIOTIC and servile, but it is morally treasonable to the American public.

Politicians are like diapers. They should be changed frequently, and for the same reasons.

I saw the Heath/NASCAR connection story last night

Maybe if Howard Dean had just purchased ad space on a NASCAR team car instead of making his comment about how his campaign needed to attract the voters with the Confederate Flags on the backs of their trucks, he would have done better in the South in '04.

Just sayin'...

What is your image?

Either I'm too old, not hip enough, or my eyesight is bad. You pick.

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.

not shocked

And AP messes up another story.

Warner's gubenatorial(sp?) campaign was the first to do that. Oh well, no need to mention a possible presidential candidate when talking about politics in North Carolina.

Whistling Beyond Dixie

anybody read this book?


The Kissell calling database, which comes from the state party has about 2 out of service/wrong person numbers per 10. I'm wondering if that is normal? Would a business stand for that kind of hit rate? This is something we need to work on come Nov. 8th.

I think it's normal.

Sad, but normal.
