I just saw a great idea. They had an American Idol for the guys in prison. Lots of musical talent there. You should have seen their faces. They were enjoying the program.

Now if they could get people in prison to teach what they know, Classes that would prepare them for when they get out of jail, we might have some productive people. And the prisoner teachers might build their self estime again.

I'm not talking about the hard core sociopaths. I'm talking the first timers that stole for various reasons, like feeding their familys and the the people picked up for drugs.

thats crazy talk ToniD

Prisoners don't need educations

What they need is more prisoners to share their cells with

If only every prison in this country could be privatized! That would be cool

Hilarious:

McCain heckled by CNN reporter
Sun Apr 01 2007 13:50:38 ET

**Exclusive**

During a live press conference in Bagdad, Senators McCain and Graham were heckled by CNN reporter Michael Ware. An official at the press conference called Ware’s conduct “outrageous,” saying, “here you have two United States Senators in Bagdad giving first-hand reports while Ware is laughing and mocking their comments. I’ve never witnessed such disrespect. This guy is an activist not a reporter.”

Senators McCain and Graham flew into Iraq and drove into Bagdad, making stops at an open market and a joint Iraq/American military security outpost before appearing at the press conference.

This is not the first time Michael Ware has taken issue with Senator McCain’s comments about early progress in Iraq. Last week, after Senator McCain told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that he needed to catch up on the news coming out of Iraq, Michael Ware responded, saying:

“I don't know what part of Neverland Senator McCain is talking about when he says we can go strolling in Baghdad.”

Michael Ware has also publicly expressed his views on the war last year in an interview with Bill Maher, saying, “I've been given a front-row ticket to watch this slow-motion train wreck … I try to stay as drunk for as long as possible while I'm here … In fact, I'm drinking now.”

-conbo

The local NPR station was playing an old interview they had with McCain to raise money for the station-anyway, McCain appeared on one of their gameshows and they were all kidding around and the NPR reporter said that he liked to be called a communist and a stalinist it was novel, and McCain said he liked to abuse NPR reporters but it was all in fun

McCain is like Bush only slightly more sane. Slightly.

McCain being assaulted by Michael Ware

I really feel bad for McCain. He only gets to vist the Neverland that is Iraq, where as Michael Ware gets to be there forever with all the mermaids and little fairys and Ice Cream Mountains. Rumors are that the My Little Pony Mercenaries have recently given every Iraqi a pair of wings.

Michael Ware has just gotten ungreatful in his cozy magical job.

George Orwell, Big Brother is watching your house
31.03.07
Add your view


The Big Brother nightmare of George Orwell's 1984 has become a reality - in the shadow of the author's former London home.

It may have taken a little longer than he predicted, but Orwell's vision of a society where cameras and computers spy on every person's movements is now here.

According to the latest studies, Britain has a staggering 4.2million CCTV cameras - one for every 14 people in the country - and 20 per cent of cameras globally. It has been calculated that each person is caught on camera an average of 300 times daily.

Use of spy cameras in modern-day Britain is now a chilling mirror image of Orwell's fictional world, created in the post-war Forties in a fourth-floor flat overlooking Canonbury Square in Islington, North London.

On the wall outside his former residence - flat number 27B - where Orwell lived until his death in 1950, an historical plaque commemorates the anti-authoritarian author. And within 200 yards of the flat, there are 32 CCTV cameras, scanning every move.

Orwell's view of the tree-filled gardens outside the flat is under 24-hour surveillance from two cameras perched on traffic lights.

The flat's rear windows are constantly viewed from two more security cameras outside a conference centre in Canonbury Place.

In a lane, just off the square, close to Orwell's favourite pub, the Compton Arms, a camera at the rear of a car dealership records every person entering or leaving the pub.

And it isn't just Michael Ware, Connie. You should have heard Kira Phillips, from CNN. She is neverland to and has traveled with Patreas. She said he goes nowhere without protection. That's not what McCain said.

Jobs at Risk After Scandal at Juvenile Facility

PYOTE, Tex., March 29 — To most Texans, the West Texas State School here is the troubled institution at the center of a sexual abuse scandal that has shaken the state’s juvenile detention system.

But to the residents of this town of 129 and the neighboring communities, it is a source of badly needed jobs.

That is why about 200 people gathered outside the county courthouse in Monahans on Tuesday to oppose a state auditor’s recommendation to close the school, and why nine residents made the 750-mile round trip drive to Austin this week to address legislators on the matter.

“This facility has been a part of the community since 1965,” said Donna Garcia, community relations coordinator at the school. “It feels like a personal vendetta against this community. We feel like the Legislature needs somebody to blame this on.”

In February, news accounts reported that from 2003 to 2005 two officials at West Texas State had had late-night sexual encounters with incarcerated boys and then were allowed to resign without facing criminal charges. Responding to the disclosure, and to pressure from the Legislature, Gov. Rick Perry forced the resignation of the Texas Youth Commission board and ordered a review of all of its facilities.

The agency is currently investigating 1,200 complaints against juvenile facilities around the state.

omg

the big story here is people might lose their jobs?

i would quit if my job were connected to something like that!!!

Trust me, the problem is partly that community...they are outraged that the facility is being shut down...not that kids have been frequently, systematically abused there. nice.

Crank Bait said...

Here is a recent argument that I find weak.

To give the "enemy" a schedule for U.S. withdrawal from the battleground is to give the "enemy" an advantage.
-----
Okay...let us assume that Congress holds the purse strings to the treasury which funds the war. Let us further assume that the reason for Congress having the power of the purse is to provide a "check and balance" against an otherwise all-powerful Executive branch.

Let us assume (again) that in every case in which the Executive desires to continue a war while the Congress desires to end it, Congress' only option is to cut off the funding; an action which will ALWAYS provide the "enemy" with the advantage of knowing that withdrawal of U.S. forces is eminent.

In other words, for Congress to possess the power to end a war, it is a fait accompli that Congress must ALWAYS broadcast its intent.

And in other, other words, the argument that cutting funding for a war is to give the "enemy" an advantage is simultaneously an argument that Congress should not (or does not) have the power to keep the Executive in check.

Either we, the electorate, like the idea of eternally having an instrument in hand that can stop one man in the White House from doing as he pleases, or we do not?

In every imaginable case of a President preferring prolonged war and the Congress ending said war, the President will be able to claim that Congress is tipping-off the "enemy".

Therefore, the argument fails.

An honest and legitimate argument from the President would be, "We are winning" or "We will win soon" and not "You are helping the bad guys."

"THE NEW York Times recently reported that the earnings gap is now the widest since 1928, with the richest 1 percent of Americans having captured most of the economy's 2005 growth, and the bottom 90 percent getting nothing. Between 1979 and 2005, according to MIT professor Thomas Kochan, productivity of American manufacturing rose by about 70 percent, but the real wages of production workers remained flat."

The Hotline | April 1, 2007 02:21 PM

Here it is: Sen. Hillary Clinton's campaign raised a record-setting $26 million for her presidential campaign in the first three months of a year, an impressive feat that may nonetheless be overshadowed in the next few days by news that Sen. Barack Obama managed to keep pace.

That Drudge headline: HRC "blows the field away" with $36 million -- refers to the $26M and also the $11M she transferred in.

WH Rejects Senate Compromise On Rove, Miers Testimony
Reuters | Stuart Grudgings | April 1, 2007 01:40 PM

The White House dismissed on Sunday a possible U.S. Senate compromise to allow testimony by officials over the firing of federal prosecutors, which has embroiled President George W. Bush's administration in controversy and led to calls for his attorney general to quit.

Republican Sen. Arlen Specter (news, bio, voting record) of Pennsylvania and Democratic Sen. Charles Schumer (news, bio, voting record) of New York said an agreement was possible under which White House aides such as Bush's chief political strategist Karl Rove could testify without being under oath.

6 U.S. soldiers killed in Iraq bombings
1 hour, 44 minutes ago
BAGHDAD - After a heavily guarded trip to a Baghdad market, Sen. John McCain insisted Sunday that a U.S.-Iraqi security crackdown in the capital was working and said Americans lacked a "full picture" of the progress. The U.S. military later reported six soldiers were killed in roadside bombings southwest of Baghdad.

Auto workers occupy Scarborough plant
TheStar.com - News - Auto workers occupy Scarborough plant

Severance pay at root of grievances at bankrupt parts company

March 31, 2007
Canadian Press
Disgruntled auto workers occupied a plant in Scarborough today and say they won’t leave until the company agrees to pay severance to 200 laid off workers.
Doors were barricaded and about 100 workers inside were preventing production at the Collins & Aikman plant, which is scheduled to close at the end of July.

Bob Chernecki, assistant to the Canadian Auto Workers’ president, said the company told them the U.S. operations are refusing to release the money for severance.

Collins & Aikman, which manufactures automotive floor and acoustic systems as well as cockpit modules, filed for bankruptcy in the U.S. in May, 2005.

The company is aware of the situation and was trying to work toward a resolution, said a company spokesman.

“We are in a continuing dialogue with CAW and our customers to see if we can work constructively and cooperatively,” said David Youngman, who noted the company has one week to pay severance.

Chernecki says there were a few hundred workers outside the plant as well.

He says the purpose of the occupation is to force the company into complying with a previous agreement to pay severance to the fired workers.

grunt gruntler said...

Are you gruntled yet? The "dis" of disgruntled is not the same as the "dis" of "dismayed." It means "completely", and so "gruntled," just as it sounds, is an old word that means "grumbling." Today, however, "gruntled" has found its way into dictionaries as a word in its own right. If you look at the origin, you will see that it gives "gruntled" as a back-formation from "disgruntled." People assumed that "disgruntled" was a negative and invented the word "gruntled."

Crank Bait said...

toniD,

McCain, in true politician modus operandi style, is and will continue to be incapable of spinning the progression of the war as anything but hunky-dory because of his support for a "surge".

He made his bed. Let him show his true integrity as the obvious becomes more undeniable; "I was wrong and I've changed my mind" or "I was right but there weren't enough boots put on the ground to make it work."

I'm putting my money on the "no integrity" sidestepping bet.

To my (political) mind, McCain should have bailed on the "surge" idea as soon as Bush adopted it. McCain could have legitimately claimed (back then) that the Bush surge plan and the McCain surge plan differed too greatly to be compared...apples and oranges.

But he didn't. Let him twirl in the wind.

toniD said...

I'm quite willing to let him twirl in the wind. He's really a big disappointment.

At one point I did have a modicum of repect for him but that's gone.

I would never have voted for him, but I did feel sorry for him when he was attacked by the bushies.

Then he started his kissing act and that turned my stomach.

NBC's Tom Aspell has a kick-butt report tonight on John McCain's trip to Baghdad.

McCain declared earlier this week on CNN that the media was distorting the conditions on the ground in Iraq and that in fact you could stroll through many Baghdad neighborhoods, a rose-colored account that drew a quick rebuke from CNN's Michael Ware.

Aspell reports that McCain's "stroll" today through a Baghdad market was guarded by 100 American soldiers, three Blackhawk helicopters, and two Apache gunships.

In his Dukakis-in-a-tank moment, McCain himself wore a bulletproof vest on his stroll.

Record millions roll in for Clinton White House bid


POSTED: 7:55 p.m. EDT, April 1, 2007



WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton raised $26 million and transferred an additional $10 million from her Senate war chest to post $36 million in the first quarter of the 2008 fundraising cycle, the New York Democrat's presidential campaign announced Sunday.

"We are completely overwhelmed and gratified by the historic support," Clinton campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle told reporters in a conference call Sunday afternoon.

Senior campaign aides noted that Clinton, a front-runner for the Democratic nomination, had raised the $26 million in a 10-week period, but still said their goal for the year remains at $75 million. Political analysts suggest the fundraising figure for Clinton and a handful of other presidential contenders is more likely to be in the $100 million range for the year.

The Clinton aides did not release how much money the New York senator currently has in the bank. Nor did they disclose how much of the $26 million raised can be used in the Democratic primary or how much of it is earmarked for the general election campaign, should Clinton win the party's nomination. Those figures will be released on or about April 15.

The campaign did say that of the $26 million raised, $4.2 million was contributed through the Internet.

The first quarter of the 2008 fundraising cycle is considered by many to be a reliable benchmark to assess a candidate's viability. The quarter closed on Saturday at midnight.

Iran accuses US jet fighters of violating airspace

Sun Apr 1, 3:27 PM ET



TEHRAN (AFP) - US warplanes have violated Iranian airspace in the southwestern oil province of Khuzestan, the Arabic language channel of Iranian state television quoted a local military chief as saying on Sunday.

ADVERTISEMENT

However, a US military spokesman said he had checked into reports of an airspace violation and denied that any took place.

"Two US aircraft trespassed into Iranian airspace northwest of (the port city of) Abadan before flying southwest into Iraq," a Revolutionary Guards commander in Abadan identified only as Colonel Aqili was quoted as saying by the Al-Alam channel's website.

"The planes left white vapour trails, attracting the local people's attention," he said, without elaborating on when the alleged incursion took place.

The incident happened close to Iran's border with Iraq, where the US and British military are deployed in force, he said.

A US military spokesman told AFP that he had investigated the Iranian military's claim and found no evidence to support it.

"There is nothing that we saw that would indicate that that happened," he told AFP.

The United States is in a mounting diplomatic confrontation with Iran over its efforts to master the nuclear fuel cycle and Western suspicions that Tehran is bent on developing nuclear weapons, a charge vehemently denied by Iran.

Supporting Orrin Hatch to become AG
By: John Amato @ 12:35 PM - PDT It was sweet music to my ears when I heard that Orrin Hatch was campaigning to take Alberto Gonzales' job away from him. We at C&L just love the man from Utah and think it's a wonderful idea that he would try to snatch the job away from Gonzo at his time of need.

MR. RUSSERT: Would Senator Hatch be an acceptable replacement to Mr. Gonzales?

SEN. LEAHY: Well, I, I—the rumor on, on the Hill this week was he was actively running for it, but, you know, I’m going to have to leave..

I also totally agree that Alberto is incapable of telling a lie, so I don't understand all the fuss being made about this attorney case either. Pat Leahy is just a big meanie and I wish he would go to the part of New Jersey that Bill Donahue said the Chocolate Jesus should go…

Donohue: But, quite frankly, where should you have this displayed? In New Jersey is where New Yorkers put their garbage. There's a big sanitation dump. That's where you should put it.

Christy says this of our new C&L hero: Sen. Orrin "Never Met A Bushie I Couldn't Defend" I protest Christy Hardin Smith…And you better watch out for the garbage dumps of New Jersey too…Full transcript from MTP here…

War Dog: "It's a very unhealthy thing to be so negative.."
April 1, 2007 9:34 PM
---------------------------------
That is a hollow statement coming from a guy who promotes war, sports a mushroom cloud logo, calls himself a war dog and spends his spare time intentionally being a fatuous asshole.

If that ain't negative then there are no polar opposites.

Do you think they will try to Swiftboat Hillary...

Do you think they will say a woman can not be trusted in a War..

Do you think they will try to say as a Democrat and Woman, Hillary is too weak to be Commander In Chief..???

I hope they give Hillary a chance to be the next Margaret Thatcher..

You Call That Humiliation?
By: Nicole Belle @ 11:33 AM - PDT Terry Jones of Monty Python fame gives us his take on the circumstances the British soldiers held hostage in Iran are enduring. (h/t Gregory)

Guardian: No hoods. No electric shocks. No beatings. These Iranians clearly are a very uncivilised bunch

I share the outrage expressed in the British press over the treatment of our naval personnel accused by Iran of illegally entering their waters. It is a disgrace. We would never dream of treating captives like this - allowing them to smoke cigarettes, for example, even though it has been proven that smoking kills. And as for compelling poor servicewoman Faye Turney to wear a black headscarf, and then allowing the picture to be posted around the world - have the Iranians no concept of civilised behaviour? For God's sake, what's wrong with putting a bag over her head? That's what we do with the Muslims we capture: we put bags over their heads, so it's hard to breathe. Then it's perfectly acceptable to take photographs of them and circulate them to the press because the captives can't be recognised and humiliated in the way these unfortunate British service people are.

It is also unacceptable that these British captives should be made to talk on television and say things that they may regret later. If the Iranians put duct tape over their mouths, like we do to our captives, they wouldn't be able to talk at all. Of course they'd probably find it even harder to breathe - especially with a bag over their head - but at least they wouldn't be humiliated.

And what's all this about allowing the captives to write letters home saying they are all right? It's time the Iranians fell into line with the rest of the civilised world: they should allow their captives the privacy of solitary confinement. That's one of the many privileges the US grants to its captives in Guantánamo Bay. Read entire article here.

Alice said...

What do you want to say to the people?

Anytime there’s an injustice it’s an opportunity to stand up.

Everytime we voice that something needs to change, despite the risk involved, it makes it harder for those in charge to continue the injustices. One person standing up becomes 16 people standing up and eventually you create a critical mass where the entire population has become contentious of the situation and stops it before it becomes a catastrophe.

War has been the S.O.P. since man stood upright..

It's losing wars you must avoid..

That is why Congress does not want to cut funding..

They don't want to lose..

They don't mind talking about it..

But in the end the money will flow..

The Plan will be completed..

We will attack Iran..

And a new day will dawn much as it did when we defeated Communism..

Tsunami hits Solomon Islands; 4 missing By EVAN WASUKA, Associated Press Writer
1 hour, 14 minutes ago

HONIARA, Solomon Islands - A powerful earthquake struck in the South Pacific Monday off the Solomon Islands, triggering a tsunami several yards high that destroyed a village and left at least four people missing, officials and residents said.

Judith Kennedy, a resident of the western town of Gizo, said water "right up to your head" swept through the town.

"All the houses near the sea were flattened," she told The Associated Press by telephone. "The downtown area is a very big mess from the tsunami and the earthquake," she added. "A lot of houses have collapsed. The whole town is still shaking" from aftershocks.

Police and residents said buildings were inundated when the wave hit Gizo, a regional center.

Harry Wickham, who owns a waterfront hotel in the town, said the damage was widespread.

"The waves came up probably about 10 feet and swept through town," he told Australia's Nine Network television by telephone. "There's a lot of water damage and a lot of debris floating around," he added.

Ollie: "My convictions are moot because I was given immunity by Congress in exchange for statements that eventually prejudiced my case in court. And, besides, I was following orders."

Funny how things work out, isn't it? Reagan gave weapons technology to Iran, effectively fast-forwarding their weapons programs and saving Iran buckets of money and years of time.

Ronald Reagan and Ollie North; two more reasons to never trust a flag waving patriot.

With friends like Ronnie and Ollie, who needs enemies? Oh, wait. They gave us one of those, too...a big, well-armed one.

Raising Roberto (Again)

http://www.truthout.org/docs_2006/033107C.shtml

On January 26, 2005, Specialist Roberto Reyes Jr. was returning to base after a five-day mission when the Humvee he was riding in hit a mine just west of Baghdad. The force of the blast threw Reyes 20 feet and caused the ears of his comrades to bleed. The sergeant who found Reyes crawling on all fours with his skull hanging open saw Reyes's helmet nearby.

A shimmering liquid in it caught his attention; as he poured it out, he realized what it was: part of Reyes's brain.

Transpartisan Coalition Rejects Mueller Testimony: Group calls on FBI, Congress to uphold the Constitution

Submitted by Michael D Ostrolenk on Sun, 2007-04-01 14:17.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 29, 2007

Transpartisan Coalition Rejects Mueller Testimony Group calls on FBI, Congress to uphold the Constitution

WASHINGTON, DC - The Liberty Coalition, a transpartisan public policy group dedicated to preserving the Bill of Rights, personal autonomy and individual privacy today rebuffed the testimony of Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director Robert Mueller regarding the illegal use of National Security Letters (NSL's). Appearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Director Mueller acknowledged that laws had been broken but argued that future abuses could be prevented by internal means within the FBI.

"The FBI has clearly abused its power and violated the constitutional rights of tens of thousands of Americans. These actions must not be tolerated in a free society," said Liberty Coalition national director Michael Ostrolenk. "While enhanced public scrutiny and Congressional oversight are a good first step, they are not enough to protect our Nation's liberty from abusive, unchecked power. Congress must act to stop the issuance of National Security Letters!"

The scariest damn film you'll see this year. It will leave you staggering out of the theatre, slack-jawed and trembling. Makes 'Fahrenheit 9/11' look like 'Bambi.' Aaron Russo goes for the jugular -- the two planks of the communist Manifesto instituted in America in 1913, The Marxist Graduated Income Tax and the Private Central Bank -- the Federal Reserve. Must SEE.
