Paper: Bush Lied, Our Kids Died

Sploid.com
The Star-Tribune writes in its Memorial Day editorial:

In the case of Iraq, the American public has failed them; we did not prevent the Bush administration from spending their blood in an unnecessary war based on contrived concerns about Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction. President Bush and those around him lied, and the rest of us let them.

Congress Actually Debates Iraq Pullout, Media Ignores It

128 members of the House — including 5 Republicans — actually voted for a modest amendment demanding that the Bush White House at least come up with a plan for withdrawing U.S. troops from Iraq. But neither the Democratic or Republican leadership supported it, so it died in a 300-128 vote. The House did approve another $49 billion for the Iraq occupation, on top of the recent $82 billion increase in Iraq spending …

"Toward a Science Charged with Faith"

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (1881-1955) stands among the very few leaders of thought in this century to integrate pure scientific research with a religious vocation. At an early point in his career this paleontologist and Jesuit priest made it his personal mission to reconstruct the most basic Christian doctrines from the perspectives of science and, at the same time, to reconstruct science from the perspectives of faith.

Lending Standards Plumb New Depths

But how, you ask, can real-estate mania be going full-bore in a region where home prices are so very high? Some would answer that it's simply a matter of all-but-insatiable demand meeting temporarily insufficient supply. No argument here. But even the most cravenous sort of demand cannot by itself cause a market to boom as Southern California real estate has. It is not the demand for housing per se that has pushed prices to extremes, however, but rather the relative ease with which home buyers can borrow money.

In 1967, the Summer of Love quickly gave way to the winter of student discontent, and the advent of more fully confrontational student politics at NYU.

These organizations began to target the university’s links with the military, as manifested in defense department contracts, on-campus recruitment by war-related industry, cooperation with the Selective Service, and ROTC programs.

Meet Dixie Longate: Tupperware's Top Sales Queen


The year was 1950, and single mother Brownie Wise was making ends meet by selling Tupperware products at home parties. Her go-getter spirit and natural flair for demonstrating creative food storage created such a buzz, Earl Silas Tupper, the inventor of the plastic bowls and containers with spill-proof lids, took notice and made her vice president of his company. Sales went through the kitchen roof. Fifty years later, there's a new queen on the home party scene. Her name is Dixie Longate. Like her predecessor, Dixie found salvation in Tupperware. But instead of selling to make ends meet, Dixie sold Tupperware to regain custody of her three children, Dwayne, Wynona, and lil' Absorbine, Jr. She says, "I got out of prison and my parole officer said that I needed to get a job in order to get my kids back. She suggested that I start selling something out of my home, and since white slavery isn't a really big market in this country right now, I thought, Tupperware. I did my first party and had a blast. Made about $300 that afternoon and thought, 'This is easy. I want to give this a try.'" And try she did.

Thomas Jefferson's Warning To America

"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs."

Moyers’ speech didn’t mention Limbaugh once. But Rush may have recognized himself in a few of Moyers’ pronouncements.

And the quickest way to be damned as a liberal is to tell the truth.”

The Pew Research Center

Contrary to the widespread impression of a nation only divided into two unified “red” and “blue” camps, our latest survey finds important cleavages on values and basic attitudes within each party. As a result, both parties face internal challenges as well as opportunities to expand their constituencies. While Republicans have made strong and election-determining inroads among independents, divisions over social and domestic issues may make it difficult for them to consolidate and build upon that advantage. Democrats, however, must deal with a more diverse constituency that is sharply divided on social and cultural values.

Memo From "Kenny Boy" to George

The memo went on to solicit several types of people "who he would like to visit with" -- including a young worker who "knows that [Social Security] could run out before they retire," a young couple with children who like "the idea of leaving something behind to the family" and a single parent who believes Bush's proposal for individual investment accounts "would provide more retirement options and security" than the current system.
