A New Record

Post Bankruptcy Bill, these folks will never get out from under this.

This is seconds after Dennis Miller tells O'Riely that no matter who says that there were no wmd and no matter who decides that Iraq was wrong he will always believe they existed and that it was the right thing to do.


When two nutjobs have a conversation like this there is only one word for it. Poetry.

War is over!

Mission Accomplished Boasts Pres!
oops that was four years ago.

Wow. This is accomplishment?

Glenn Greenwald great today on Israel v. US when it comes to treating issues of war seriously.

Your Day?

Any wonder why it is not recognised in our country?

May 1st, International Workers' Day, commemorates the historic struggle of working people throughout the world, and is recognized in most countries. The United States of America and Canada are among the exceptions. This despite the fact that the holiday began in the 1880s in the USA, linked to the battle for the eight-hour day, and the Chicago anarchists.

The struggle for the eight-hour day began in the 1860s. In 1884, the Federation of Organized Trades and Labor Unions of the United States and Canada, organized in 1881 (and changing its name in 1886 to American Federation of Labor ) passed a resolution which asserted that "eight hours shall constitute a legal day's work from and after May 1, 1886, and that we recommend to labor organizations throughout this district that they so direct their laws as to conform to this resolution". The following year the Federation repeated the declaration that an eight-hour system was to go into effect on May 1, 1886. With workers being forced to work ten, twelve, and fourteen hours a day, support for the eight-hour movement grew rapidly. In the months prior to May 1, 1886, thousands of workers, organized and unorganized, members of the organization Knights of Labor and of the federation, were drawn into the struggle. Chicago was the main center of the agitation for a shorter day.

Someone tell Carmine

Fans of the Majority Report will remember that Carmine, Janeane's Dad, was a Buckley conservative... I wonder if he's also abandoning the GOP.

Party of Death

This is what happens to a political party that is bereft of ideas and embraces a governing philosophy that explicitly hates government functions.
