ON AIR

Things learned from liberal radio so far:
1. Republicans held voting open an extra 23 minutes so that they could strong-arm the votes needed to defeat a proposition that would halt tax-cutting power until the deficits were under control.

2. Families of soldiers in Iraq are spending $1200 of their own money to buy body armor for their loved ones who are shipped out.

3. A bill to increase unemployment benefits has been stalled by Republicans.

4. Tomorrow is National I’m embarrassed by my President Day.

5. I don’t like streaming radio and will have to get a battery-powered radio for my office.

COURT OF WORLD OPINION RULES AGAINST U.S.

World Court orders U.S. to review the cases of Mexican citizens on death row in the U.S. to see if they had been properly informed of their rights to seek help from Mexico.

The case raises the specter of the German citizens executed in Arizona despite intervention by the world court on their behalf.

My guess is Captain Unilateral couldn’t care less.

I see your spin-off and I raise you a sitcom

Reportedly Camryn Manheim of ‘The Practice’ will get her own sitcom. New lead James Spader has already been tapped to head a new hour-long dramatic spin-off of the series.

According to insiders, Manheim’s character, Ellenor Frutt, will return to her hometown after the show ends and hijinks will ensue.

First question, who gets cast as her daughter? Since television can SORAS what would be a toddler, I’m guessing they’ll hire a 7-8 year-old actress. How about that Jersey Girl kid?

NOW, THIS IS ALARMING NEWS

NOW, THIS IS ALARMING NEWS


The Progressive
On February 16, a Crawford jury convicted five peace activists of violating the parade and procession ordinance of Crawford, Texas.

Amanda Jack was in the last car of the caravan, and she saw the other cars pulled over. Some of the occupants had gotten out with their signs to see what was going on, she says. But they were not demonstrating there.

Police Chief Donnie Tidmore ordered everyone to get back in their cars within three minutes or face arrest, Jack says. “I went back up to ask Chief Tidmore if people could have more time, and as I was doing this, deputies came up and started to arrest one of our members. Another legal observer was trying to find out the name of the person arrested when she, too, got arrested. I asked, where are you taking these people? And they arrested me.”

Jack, the assistant director of Casa Marianella, a shelter for recently arrived immigrants and refugees, was held overnight in the Waco jail with the four others.

Their names are Ken Zarifis, Amara Maliszewski, Trish Major, and Michael Machicek.

Zarifis is an eighth-grade English teacher in Austin. He, too, was a legal observer on May 3. “My intention was just to keep an eye on what was going on, and if civil liberties were being violated, I would jot them down,” he says.

But like Amanda Jack’s, his watchfulness was not appreciated.

Zarifis saw the police arresting two people, including another legal observer, so he went up to the policeman.

“I asked the officer what his name and badge number was, and he told me, ‘Step off the road, I’m going to arrest you.’ I wasn’t really in the road, but I stepped back four or five feet off the grass, and I said, ‘I still need to ask why you’re arresting them,’ and he then arrested me and took me to the van.”

Fulcrum calls this story appalling and unconstitutional. I hope a court sees it the same way. I think the worst part of the story was when the police officer tells the woman to put down her sign, but if she does she’ll be cited for littering. WTF?

TO REPUBLICANS IT’S ALL JUST A BIG JOKE

TO REPUBLICANS IT’S ALL JUST A BIG JOKE

The recent firestorm about Bush making light of not finding any weapons of mass in Iraq, reminded me of a “joke” circulating the conservative blogs for a while now.

It goes something like this: Thanks to George W. Bush my two sons were killed in Iraq and I lost my job. If Clinton were President this never would have happened. Big punchline? Sincerely, Saddam Hussein.

Doubled over in hysterics, yet?

I know, they think they’re clever, but what makes this “joke” possible is the reality that many families are being forever changed by the deaths of soldiers in combat zones around the world and many people who aren’t Saddam have lost their jobs and are struggling to stay afloat on a mixture of credit debt and alcohol.
It’s all fun and games when we’re talking meglomaniacal dictator, but what about your dad? or your mom? or you?
Still laughing?
