RepubliCONS take Big, Stinkin', Nasty crAP on Our Voting Rights

13-11-2004 00:54

This defecation was done in plain public view, and recorded in the public record. Since voting is the Right which secures all other Rights and confers legitimacy on the ultimate 'Commons' Our Representative Government-this bowel movement was ejected on the Public Square, so a charge of public indecency needs to be included on the arrest warrant.

12-11-2004 20:51

On the face of it, the siege of Fallujah seems to be going relatively well for the US troops. Most of the city has been captured and according to the mass media “Operation Phantom Fury” will be finished in a couple of days. However, things are not so simple. The war in Iraq was also supposed to be over, whereas it clearly is not. The same applies to Fallujah, where an official victory may well turn out to be a Pyrrhic one.
