How to withdraw from Iraq without losing our shirts -- and our social security too!

Let's see. Bush invaded Iraq shortly after Saddam Hussein changed over from the dollar to the Euro.

If the purpose of the war on Iraq was to keep the dollar strong, Bush has been defeated already -- no matter how many Iraqis he kills.

Bush is like one of those gunfighters in the Old West who swaggers into town to rob the bank and steal the land. But apparently Bush didn't count on the local ranchers, townspeople, school marms (and bloggers) organizing against him.

Sure, we got a bunch of corpses on the ground in Fallugah. Sure, we got a cowered population in Afghanistan, Palestine and (sort of) Iran. But has Bush "won" his war on the Middle East? Hardly.

With China, Latin America, Africa, Russia, Japan -- and even me -- contemplating switching to the Euro, I would say that Bush has lost it completely.

Thank God for Gene Autry, Roy Rogers, the Lone Ranger and what was the name of that dude in Toy Story -- Woody! As for me, I'm just glad that Bush will soon be in the hoosegow. He may not acknowledge it yet but Bush has LOST his bid to take over our town.

If Bush is losing the war on the Middle East, then who IS winning it? America! You and me. And, as part of the spoils of war, we may get to keep our Social Security.

From Peter: Voter registration data as compared to votes -- shocking, as usual


From Ed: bin Ladin's evil scheme to win the "War on Terror" by bankrupting America seems to be working -- thanks to our George:

From Joe T: If in fact the Diebold machines were set to record more votes than were actually cast, then a simple count of the voter registration books where the people who sign in to vote would in my lame brain opinion revel whether the little black boxes padded the vote.

A way of checking to see whether the machines were set to record a Bush vote when a Kerry vote was cast would be to check the voting for all the candidates the voter voted for on that ballot. A pattern should show up very quickly. One who voted for all Democrats on the ballot and then vote for Bush, should set off the alarm.


Steal the election once -- shame on Cheney/Bush. Steal the election twice-- shame on America.

Concession doesn't matter: It doesn't matter whether or not John Kerry conceded. When they do the Ohio recount and Kerry wins it, he becomes the President no matter what.


From Wayne: "Sounds like angry sour grapes to me, you are indeed going off the deep end. Why not just shut up and deal with it, we won, you lost." But, Wayne, what did you "win"? The right to slaughter civilians, lose your freedom, violate MY religion and bankrupt the country? Big deal. Looks like you ARE a winner! My congrats.

From someone in a position to know:

All I see and hear tells me that we are only hours away from starting an attack on Fallujah that could wind up being the bloodiest mess in decades. I fear that we have a mixing of Texas cowboy bravo, a severe oversupply of Marine Corps testosterone with the addition of Pentagon illogic, making a highly combustible mixture. The way it's going on both sides, we may be close to the old "body count" days of Viet Nam.


Order the scariest movie ever made:


Latest election fraud updates from CLG News:

Ohio County: More Votes Than Voters --Cuyahoga County Precincts (americans4america) "Each precinct in Cuyahoga County, Ohio Highlighted areas represent 90% (very, VERY unlikely) and higher (up to 1160.78%) voter TURN-OUT! 29 are above 100% Calculated from data on county page --(Ballots Cast/Registered Voters) *100 = % turn out. Ballots Cast SHOULD NEVER be more than Registered, thus per cent should NEVER be higher than 100% This amounts to 93,136 EXTRA votes beyond 100% in those precincts! This is just for ONE county!"

Nebraska County: More Votes Than Voters --Too many votes --Sarpy County election officials are trying to figure out how they ended up with more votes than voters in the general election. As many as 10,000 extra votes have been tallied and candidates are still waiting for corrected totals. Sarpy County borrowed the election equipment from Omaha-based Election Systems & Software.

Wet Ballots Found, Rejected By Voting Machines (FL) Several hundred ballots in Seminole County, Fla., mysteriously got wet and were rejected by voting machines Tuesday, according to Local 6 News. The wet ballots were apparently discovered unmarked Tuesday at the Community United Methodist Church in Casselberry, Fla.

"I was tipped off by a person very high up in TV that the news has been locked down tight, and there will be no TV coverage of the real problems with voting on Nov. 2. Even the journalists are pretty horrified. My source said they've also been forbidden to talk about it even on their own time, and he was calling from somewhere else. He was trying to figure out how to get the real news out on vote fraud. This is a person I've worked with off and on for nearly two years, and the voice was so somber it really bothered me." --Bev Harris,

From Berkeley Stop The War: Top U.S. Marine in Iraq Calls for Massacre in Fallujah U.S. troops entered the western outskirts of the city on Monday seizing a hospital and two bridges over the Euphrates River. The U.S. has surrounded the sealed off Fallujah and is preparing to launch the complete destruction of the city.

From CLG News CLG News has a whole laundry list of election fraud in Ohio, Florada, New Mexico, etc: "Alone in Ohio, officials cited homeland security --Warren's vote tally walled off --Citing concerns about potential terrorism [?!!?], Warren County officials locked down the county administration building on election night and blocked anyone from observing the vote count as the nation awaited Ohio's returns. County officials say they took the action Tuesday night for homeland security, although state elections officials said they didn't know of any other Ohio county that closed off its elections board.

Oops! More fuzzy math in Ohio... Franklin County, Ohio --A total of 638 votes were cast in the precinct: Bush received 4258 of them, Kerry got 260.


From Liz: Challenge the electors one by one!

Constitutionally, what has to be challenged is the electoral college slate. Any challenge for discrepancies has to occur before the electoral college meets, and a given slate of electors actually votes on the president. After that happens, the court cannot intervene. There is no provision constitutionally for a new election, or a recount of the old one. When the electoral college slate votes, that's it, and it can't be taken back. Furthermore, once the Congress opens the votes for the electoral college slates, and they are counted, the President and Vice President determined to have been elected there take office on the 20th. That is it. Once that all happens, it can't be taken back. You don't have two or four years to prove your case. You only have until about mid December. That's if. If you're going to do anything, you've got about five weeks to do it.

After that, if you can prove the president and vice president conducted fraud in order to win the election, the only remedy is to impeach them.


From me: With regard to Iraq, Bush is like a monkey with his hand in a jar full ot nuts. He will never let go. Those defense contracts are too lucrative.

From Jacqueline: Three Democratic congressmen - U.S. Reps. John Conyers Jr. of Michigan, Jerrold Nadler of New York and Robert Wexler of Florida - have asked the General Accounting Office to investigate.
