More news from the homefront

Its one thing when hippie protestors talk about fear-mongering and condemn the Bush Doctrine, but an entirely other thing when a billionaire financier like George Soros says the same thing:

"Mr. Bush's administration deliberately fosters fear because it helps to keep the nation lined up behind the president. We have come a long way from Franklin D. Roosevelt's dictum that we have nothing to fear but fear itself."

"Removing Mr. Hussein is a good thing, yet the way Mr. Bush is going about it must be condemned. America must play a more constructive role if humanity is to make any progress."

An unapologetic Marine explains, "Why Michael Moore is Right. . .":

"To be blunt, my personal feeling on the invasion of Iraq is that George W. Bush and his colleagues have instigated an environment of violence and as a result my children will have to grow up in a nation where random acts of terrorism are common place. Due to his decision, he has brought a threat of violence into my own household and onto the laps of my children. For that, he will never be forgiven."

Joan Ryan gives right wing media pundits like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity their well-deserved comeuppance:

"Contrary to what the rightist media tell you, it is not anti-American to voice dissent; it is anti-American to suppress it.”

"Ladies and gentlemen, we are at war. This is no time to be undermining the ideals on which this country was founded and for which so much blood has been spilled. We should be demonstrating our support for democractic rights instead of spitting all over them. Yet these right-wing dolts keep spewing their misguided, anti-democratic garbage on radio and television shows, giving aid and sustenance to Saddam Hussein. What could please this tyrant more than seeing Americans demand that dissent be stifled -- thus making our country more like his?"

And now for something completely different, a video of Tony Blair and George W. Bush singing "Endless Love."
