House Bill Will Bring Back Paper Ballots
By: Nicole Belle @ 11:41 AM - PDT
Sacramento Bee (reg. req'd.): (h/t Nathan)

Seeking to address concerns over the integrity of elections, a House panel is weighing controversial legislation requiring states to bring back the paper ballot as the official record .

Many, if not most, states are expressing concerns that Congress is moving too fast with pending legislation that would take effect in time for the 2008 national presidential elections, with primary balloting beginning in January.

Only 17 states have voter systems that would be in compliance with the proposed law.

The legislation has divided advocacy groups. State elections officials are opposed to it. County officials don't like it.

Even among those who support the idea, including California Secretary of State Debra Bowen, the consensus is it will cost a lot more money than cash-strapped Congress may be prepared to spend.

Hagel: Some see impeachment as option By HOPE YEN, Associated Press Writer
Sun Mar 25, 2:04 PM ET



With his go-it-alone approach on Iraq, President Bush is flouting Congress and the public, so angering lawmakers that some consider impeachment an option over his war policy, a senator from Bush's own party said Sunday.

Meanwhile, the Senate's No. 2 Republican leader harshly criticized House Democrats for setting an "artificial date" for withdrawing troops from Iraq and said he believes Republicans have enough votes to prevent passage of a similar bill in the Senate.

"We need to put that kind of decision in the hands of our commanders who are there on the ground with the men and women," said Sen. Trent Lott (news, bio, voting record), R-Miss. "For Congress to impose an artificial date of any kind is totally irresponsible."

GOP Sen. Chuck Hagel (news, bio, voting record) of Nebraska, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and a frequent critic of the war, stopped short of calling for Bush's impeachment. But he made clear that some lawmakers viewed that as an option should Bush choose to push ahead despite public sentiment against the war.

"Any president who says, I don't care, or I will not respond to what the people of this country are saying about Iraq or anything else, or I don't care what the Congress does, I am going to proceed — if a president really believes that, then there are — what I was pointing out, there are ways to deal with that," said Hagel, who is considering a 2008 presidential run.

The Senate planned to begin debate Monday on a war spending bill that would set a nonbinding goal of March 31, 2008, for the removal of combat troops.

That comes after the House narrowly passed a bill Friday that would pay for wars in Iraq and Afghanistan this year but would require that combat troops come home from Iraq before September 2008 — or earlier if the Iraqi government did not meet certain requirements.

On Sunday, Hagel said he was bothered by Bush's apparent disregard of congressional sentiment on Iraq, such as his decision to send additional troops. He said lawmakers now stood ready to stand up to the president when necessary.

In the April edition of Esquire magazine, Hagel described Bush as someone who doesn't believe he's accountable to anyone. "He's not accountable anymore, which isn't totally true. You can impeach him, and before this is over, you might see calls for his impeachment. I don't know. It depends on how this goes," Hagel told the magazine.

In his weekly address Saturday, Bush accused Democrats of partisanship in the House vote and said it would cut the number of troops below a level that U.S. military commanders say they need. Vice President Dick Cheney also accused Democrats of undermining U.S. troops in Iraq and of sending a message to terrorists that America will retreat in the face danger.

"We have clearly a situation where the president has lost the confidence of the American people in his war effort," Hagel said. "It is now time, going into the fifth year of that effort, for the Congress to step forward and be part of setting some boundaries and some conditions as to our involvement."

"This is not a monarchy," he added, referring to the possibility that some lawmakers may seek impeachment. "There are ways to deal with it. And I would hope the president understands that."

Diplomacy for Grown-Ups
by BooMan
Sat Mar 24th, 2007 at 09:52:37 AM EST

Our country is being led by teenagers. The U.N. Security Council is supposed to vote today on whether or not to impose sanctions on Iran for their uranium enrichment activities. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was planning to come to New York City to address the Security Council prior to their vote. So, what did Condi do? She's ever so clever.

Mohammad Mir Ali Mohammadi, press secretary of Iran's mission at the U.N., told The Associated Press the U.S. did not deliver a visa to the U.S. Embassy in Bern, Switzerland, in time for the Iranian president to pick it up before for the council session Saturday.
Of course, our embassy official in Bern says this isn't true.


But Daniel Wendell, a spokesman for the U.S. Embassy in Switzerland said Ahmadinejad's and other Iranian officials' passports had been handed over in Bern on Friday. Another 31 other passports for support staff were to ready later in the day. The passports would then be taken by courier to Tehran in time for the Iranians to fly to New York.
Zarif told reporters "the visas for (Ahmadinejad's) crew were not ready yet."

You do the math.

This is how the Partito Nazionale Bushista rolls.

Overall, we find that America's lowest-earning one-fifth of households received roughly $8.21 in government spending for each dollar of taxes paid in 2004.

Anonymous said...

Households with middle-incomes received $1.30 per tax dollar, and America's highest-earning households received $0.41.

Anonymous said...

Government spending targeted at the lowest-earning 60 percent of U.S. households is larger than what they paid in federal, state and local taxes.

Anonymous said...

In 2004, between $1.03 trillion and $1.53 trillion was redistributed downward from the two highest income quintiles to the three lowest income quintiles through government taxes and spending policy.

Anonymous said...

These findings suggest tax distributions alone do not tell Americans how much the nation's fiscal system is helping or hurting low-income households. To answer that, we must look beyond tax burdens to government spending as well.

Anonymous said...

Lawmakers who ignore the distribution of govern­ment spending risk making policy judgments based on an incorrect set of facts about the United States fiscal system.

“Black Cloud hanging over the DOJ”

So sayeth John McKay, one of the fired USAs in the US Attorney/Alberto Gonzales scandal on Meet the Press this morning.

MR. McKAY: Well, we really don’t—it tells me that, that the Justice Department and, and the administration and the President have a responsibility now to deal with the black cloud that’s hanging over the Department of Justice. The—our former colleagues who were United States attorneys and the career men and women who do the work of the Department of Justice are…are people of great integrity. The last thing they need to deal with is an implication that politics are allowed into the grand jury.

Today the New York Times published an editorial critiqueing the economic policies of the Venezuela government and pointing out supposed flaws in them.

It's worth taking a look:

President Hugo Chávez of Venezuela had an especially good time baiting President Bush during their recent competing tours of Latin America. But demagoguery and showmanship will do nothing to solve Venezuela’s 20 percent inflation rate — now the highest in Latin America — and growing food shortages that are punishing the poor whose interests Mr. Chávez so loudly declaims.

Funny how they leave out that Venezuela also has the fastest growing economy in the Western Hemisphere, that real income is WAY up, and that food consumption was up 16% last year. I guess they were pressed for space and couldn't fit those little factoids into their editorial.

Too bad they also left out the little fact that in the 10 years prior to Chavez coming to power only ONCE did inflation go below 30% and that year it was 29.9%. Maybe the editorial writers from the Times could benefit from this graph:

Peace, Im Out

When I woke up last Friday at 7 am, I immediately got to work. I deflated the air mattress I've been sleeping on since the movers took the futon mattress I had previously had on top of the air mattress (it's ridiculously comfortable like that), and packed up the blanket. I shaved according to military standards for the last time. I brushed. Showered. Finished all the last minute packing, jamming everything into my poor Ford Focus. It is loaded to the brim, but my skill in packing is such that I have a clear view through the rear-view mirror.

At 9 am, when the apartment complex office opened, I was there waiting, in uniform for the last time. My apartment was inspected, and I checked out, and then headed to the base. Showed the gate guard my ID card for the last time. Went to the personnel office. Gave them all my out-processing paperwork, they gave me my DD 214.

Firm sues Mass. over contract for voting machines for disabled
By Steve LeBlanc, Associated Press Writer | March 25, 2007

BOSTON --One of the nation's top manufacturers of voting machines is taking the state to court Monday to try to block distribution of machines for the disabled in Massachusetts, saying it was unfairly denied the lucrative contract.

An attorney for Diebold Election Systems Inc. said the company should have been awarded the $9 million contract if Secretary of State William Galvin followed his own criteria when deciding which firm the state should contract with for the new machines.

"Diebold's proposal provided the best value to the commonwealth," said William Weisberg, an attorney for Diebold. "We believe that using those criteria correctly Diebold should have received the award."

Those criteria include cost, the ability of the company to meet the scope of the request, and the degree to which the machines met technical requirements.

Galvin called the lawsuit "frivolous" and "sour grapes on the part of Diebold."

"We've gone through an exhaustive process consulting with the disabled community to find out what's best for them," Galvin told The Associated Press. "We certainly don't feel like we have an obligation to help (Diebold) market their equipment."

Diebold's lawsuit, set to be heard in Suffolk Superior Court on Monday, seeks to block distribution until the court can rule on the merits of the company's case.

Under the 2002 federal Help America Vote Act, the state is required to have voting machines for the physically impaired. Galvin said the goal is to have a machine in each of the state's 1,700 polling locations.

Galvin said part of the problem was finding machines that could work for voters with a wide range of disabilities. The goal is to have a machine that disabled voters can use without the help of poll workers or others -- in part to protect the secrecy of their ballots.

Galvin chose AutoMARK voting machines, in part because he said the machines produce the same kind of ballot card as other voting machines, so the ballots could be counted together. He said the Diebold machines produced a paper trail that could compromise the secrecy of ballots cast.

Darfur: a letter from Europe's leading writers

http://comment.independent.co.uk/commentators/article2387820.ece

Excerpt:

"How dare we Europeans celebrate this weekend while on a continent some few miles south of us the most defenceless, dispossessed and weak are murdered in Sudan?

Has the European Union - born of atrocity to unite against further atrocity - no word to utter, no principle to act on, no action to take, in order to prevent these massacres in Darfur? Is the cowardliness over Srebrenica to be repeated? If so, what do we celebrate?

The thin skin of our political join?
The futile posturings of our political class?
The impotent nullities of our bureaucracies?

The Europe which allowed Auschwitz and failed in Bosnia must not tolerate the murder in Darfur. Europe is more than a network of the political classes, more than a first world economic club and a bureaucratic excrescence.

It is an inherited culture which sustains our shared belief in the value and dignity of the human being. In the name of that common culture and those shared values, we call upon the 27 leaders to impose immediately the most stringent sanctions upon the leaders of the Sudanese regime."

Rockefeller Mulls Secret Prison Shutdown

WASHINGTON (AP) - The chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee is questioning whether the CIA's secret prison program - which he fears has become a black eye to the United States - should continue.

The review led by Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-W.Va., comes as the Bush administration deliberates an executive order, called for by Congress, that will establish new guidelines for the CIA's system for detaining and interrogating suspected terrorists. It is the agency's most publicly controversial intelligence collection program.

Rockefeller says there is no doubt that intelligence from detainees has been valuable. Yet he says he wonders whether the CIA needed to create a system outside of long-standing FBI and military interrogation programs.

Rockefeller's spokeswoman, Wendy Morigi, said he has not been convinced that the CIA prisons produce better intelligence than the FBI and military systems.

"The real question is whether the administration's decision to pursue an alternate system (at the CIA) was the right approach," Rockefeller said in a statement Friday.

President Bush said he emptied the CIA's secret prisons in September and sent its last 14 high-value detainees to the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. But he left open the possibility that the program could be used again.

As chairman, Rockefeller has promised to conduct more vigorous oversight of the spy agencies than did his Republican predecessor. He is asking whether having a separate CIA detention and interrogation system is necessary and worth the toll on the U.S. image abroad.

Frank Rich calls him "Fredo"...

Frank Rich: When will Bush's Fredo get whacked? RAW STORY
Published: Saturday March 24, 2007

Writing in an op-ed for Sunday's New York Times, columnist Frank Rich points out the "Jekyll-and-Hyde contrast" between President Bush's perfunctory remarks on the fourth anniversary of the invasion of Iraq and his genuine passion the next day when defending his attorney general and longtime friend from Texas, Alberto Gonzales.

Rich goes on to suggest that for the last ten years, Bush and Gonzales have worked to protect each other from unseemly revelations -- ranging from Bush's drunk driving conviction and Gonzales's relationship with Enron to 9/11 and the Plame outing. The attorney firings, Rich believes, are just one more piece in the pattern.

"He's been present at every dubious legal crossroads in Bush's career," Rich writes of Gonzales.

Once Gonzales can no longer fulfill his role of protecting the president, he will be tossed overboard, Rich surmises in the column entitled "When Will Fredo Get Whacked?" Fredo is a reference to a character from the still-to-this-day bestselling Mario Puzo book, The Godfather, which was turned into a critically acclaimed film trilogy by director Francis Ford Coppola. In the cultural classic, Frederico "Fredo" Corleone ends up being killed by his own brother, new Godfather Michael, after betraying "the family."

"In popular culture, Fredo has become representative of the 'weak link' of an organization," an entry at Wikipedia explains. "Referring to someone as 'Fredo' indicates that the person is not competent enough to be trusted with important tasks or knowledge. It is usually used to suggest not treachery, but weakness and stupidity."

Republican support for Attorney General Alberto Gonzales eroded Sunday as three key senators sharply questioned his honesty over last fall's firings of eight federal prosecutors. Additionally, two Democrats joined the list of lawmakers calling for Gonzales' ouster.

Several Republicans also urged President Bush to allow sworn testimony from his top aides about their role in dismissing the U.S. attorneys -- a standoff threatening to result in Capitol Hill subpoenas of White House officials.

“The administration doesn’t like me to say civil war, but I’m afraid that’s the way it is,” former Secretary of State Colin Powell said in a speech Friday in Florida. “Iraq will be resolved one way or another,” Powell said, expressing doubts “over the good that additional troops would do now. ‘We’re running our troops into the ground,’ he said.”

There are just some people who don't want to be reminded of their own mortality.

Some people are scared of actual leadership.

Some people don't understand selflessness.

It is my opinion, thinking and working for others will be more rejuvenating and life sustaining for Elizabeth than holding up in the house waiting to die.

By the Edwards' actions, we are seeing what the American way and leadership are all about. It's been so long and so many diversions since we've seen the true American spirit.

toniD said...

Sen. John Edwards (D-NC) said last night during an interview on 60 Minutes, “There’s not a single person in America that should vote for me because Elizabeth has cancer… Do not vote for us because you feel some sympathy or compassion for us. That would be an enormous mistake.”

Limbaugh, Couric, Hannity, Savage, Coulter, O'Reilly, etc. have sold their souls.

toniD said...

Bob Novak writes, “With nearly two years remaining in his presidency, George W. Bush is alone. In half a century, I have not seen a president so isolated from his own party in Congress. … The saving grace that some Republicans find in the dispute over U.S. attorneys is that, at least temporarily, it draws attention away from debate over an unpopular war.”

I don't think they have souls.

Except maybe Couric. She did sell her soul to get people to listen to her. Maybe she decided herself or maybe she was told to by CBS but she's the only one from that group that even had a soul.

The others are just pure evil and bullys!

But the Zapatista movement stayed alive, and it has been Clifford Bob's mission to explain why.

Dr. Bob is a political science professor at Duquesne University, and one of his major research projects has been to figure out why some groups, like the Zapatistas, gain international support, while others are mired in obscurity.

i heard a strange story the other day. a couple with a poor credit rating bought a car at one of these places that guarrantees that everyone gets approved. they drove the car off the lot and had it for a while, when the company calls them back and says you've got to return the car, we can't get anyone to approve your loan. now they're all in court....

This is exactly how insurance companies recruit salesmen to hawk their annuities; sales commissions.

When is an annuity a good investment instrument? Pretty much never.

Who buys annuities? Older people who are suckered by salesmen into believing that there is no downside.
