Well, guys and gals, apparently my login still works, so here we go!
For starters, the former Dubya-worship site known as Free Republic just doesn’t feel the love anymore. As usual, their issue isn’t that Dubya is a right-wing nutcase, but that he isn’tenoughof a right-wing nutcase to suit them. First example:
Bush Extends Mexican Truck Program

Infuriated Democrats vowed Monday to kill a pilot program that gives Mexican trucks access to U.S. highways after the Bush administration – acting on the first day of Congress’ summer recess – announced that it was extending the test project.
Rep. James L. Oberstar, chairman of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, said the administration’s maneuver was the latest attempt to flout the will of Congress on the matter, and said he will introduce legislation ending the program once and for all.
Uh oh. Don’t forget that “Jorge” has become a favourite nickname for Dubya on this website…
Still – how bad could it be?
To: kellynlaNo call back of Congress. Continue Mexican trucks on US highways.

To: RoadTest; kellynlaSometimes I’m sorry I voted for Dubya.I’ve been sorry voting for Bush for several years now. How stupid of us to assume he’d act like a conservative, protecting the interests of America and her citizens first.
It’s largely because of Bush that I will NOT vote for John McCain. I’ve learned how ignorant and how dangerous it is to assume that just because a person has an “R” after his name that he’s not a leftist. I made the mistake voting for Bush, assuming he could be brought round. I will not make it again by voting for McCain.
I want my leftists out in front of me, where I can see them, not masquerading as my friend.
Well, this is starting to get depressing. Let’s move on to happier topics, shall we?

Forensics specialist Techdude, who has been chipping away at the Obama Birth Certificate mystery for some time, has confirmed that the name on the original Certificate of Live Birth (COLB) which was used to forge the document presented by Barack Obama as his valid Birth Certificate IS:
Maya Kassandra Soetoro.
Insert scary minor chord orchestral strikehere!
The document presented by Obama as the “truth about his birth certificate” can be seen on his official campaign web page, “FightTheSmears,” here.
In an exclusive TexasDarlin report on Sunday, Techdude revealed that he had discovered the true identity of the person on the original COLB, but that he was not ready to disclose that person’s name.
Whoah! This should get the old Freeperati juices a-flowin’, no? Well, yes…
To: savedbygraceHe doesn’t have a real COLB because he was birthed by a Jackal.
Someone should interview his barber to see if 666 is hidden somewhere on his scalp.
I know, I’ve seen The Omen one too many times…
To: Neville72This whole Obama birth certificate thing is nuts. Bunch of people with their tin foil hats too tight, desperately trying recreate Rathergate out of thin air.
You know, when even the wingnuts start to realize that they’re only hanging out with other crazy people, and the main difference between them is the depth of the craziness – the bloom is definitely off the rose.
Well – let’s move on to a cogent discussion of womans’ place in the world. Certainly people who invariably claim to honour the women who bore them (and who sometimes put up with them forweeks before cutting their losses) could have something positive to say about this:
No kids, no jobs for growing number of wives

(LifeWire) — “What do you do all day?” is a question Anne Marie Davis, 34, says she gets a lot.
Davis, who lives in Louisville, Texas, isn’t a mother, nor does she telecommute. She is a stay-at-home wife, which makes her something of a pioneer in the post-feminist world.
Ten years ago, she was an “overwhelmed” high school English teacher. “I didn’t have time for my husband, ” she says, “and I didn’t have a life.”
She presented the idea of staying home to her husband, a Web engineer. “I told him it was something I wanted to do, and he supported it. It was a great relief.”
Dr. Scott Haltzman, author of “The Secrets of Happily Married Women,” says stay-at-home wives constitute a growing niche. “In the past few years, many women who are well educated and trained for career tracks have decided instead to stay at home,” he says. While his research is ongoing, he estimates that more than 10 percent of the 650 women he’s interviewed who choose to stay home are childless.
Daniel Buccino, a Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine clinical social worker and psychotherapist, says stay-at-home wives are the latest “status symbols.”
“It says, ‘We make enough money that we both don’t need to work outside the home,'” he says. “And especially with the recent economic pressures, a stay-at-home spouse is often an extreme and visible luxury.”To: Tijeras_Slim; Allegra; Jersey Republican Biker ChickNo kids, no jobs for growing number of wivesFree

McCain Ad: ‘Worse off Than We Were Four Years Ago’ (McCain Throws GOP Under Bus – Again)

Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain’s (Ariz.) latest television ad says that the country is in worse shape now than it was before President Bush began his second term.
“Washington’s broken. John McCain knows it,” the ad says. “We’re worse off than we were four years ago.”
The ad, titled “Broken,” shows that McCain is, at least in part, running away from President Bush’s record and looking to win favor with the centrist voters who have supported him in the past.
The ad, which is slated to run in key states, comes after Democratic rival Sen. Barack Obama (Ill.) made a point of including images of McCain with Bush in his last two ads hitting the Republican on his energy policy.
The McCain spot, in which a narrator is referring to the Arizona senator as “the original maverick,” makes a special point of saying that McCain “has taken on Big Tobacco, drug companies, fought corruption in both parties.”
“He’ll reform Wall Street, battle Big Oil, make America prosper again,” the ad says.
Obama campaign spokesman Bill Burton responded by saying that “Sen. McCain wants Americans to forget that during the Republican primary, he said that Americans were better off than we were eight years ago, and that he thinks we’ve made ‘great progress economically’.”
Burton added that McCain “wants us to forget that he’s fully embraced the Bush policies he once opposed, and bragged about supporting those policies ‘more than 90 percent of time’.”

Barack Obama: Uppity or Arrogant?

“I have become a symbol of the possibility of America returning to our best traditions.”—Barack ObamaLiberals are almost always insufferably arrogant. It sort of goes with the territory. After all, if you believe that we have to throw religious customs, hundreds of years’ worth of societal traditions, and the parts of the Constitution you disagree with into the wastebasket based primarily on your “feeling” that they’re antiquated or no longer necessary, then you almost certainly must have an ego the size of a small planet.
That brings us to Barack Obama, who, even amongst liberals, is notorious for being full-of-himself. Conservatives who have pointed this out have been recently accused, rather uncreatively I might add, of calling Obama“uppity.”
The whole idea and concept of a black man being “uppity” or acting above his station by doing things white people do…didn’t that go out in like the fifties?
