Terri's passing

I'm happy and sad at the same time. For one, I'm happy that Terri has now passed from this world and no longer has to suffer. I'm happy that her husband now feels that his last duties to her are fulfilled, and he can move on knowing he did everything she wanted. I'm sad for her parents and family and friends who are now faced with the reality that their daughter is finally gone from this world. There was no winner in this conflict, though I'm glad it is over and that the law was upheld.

However, what bothers me about this was that anyone really paid attention at all. While thousands of children go hungry on the streets of America everyday, the only person starting that anyone seemed to pay any attention to was a brain dead woman in a hospice center.

Bush said to honor Terri's memory by building a culture of life. You know how you start that? Number one, by removing the death penalty. Number two, concentrating on helping the people who are already alive live betters lives. Number three, provide adequate abilites for birth control so that those who don't want children are never faced with the posbility of having to abort one. That's a culture of life.

Tom "The Hammer" Delay condemed the judges. Fuck Tom Delay. This isn't their fault. They upheld the law which is their job. Tom, you've been awful lucky that Terri and now the Pope are passing away, thus sucking up all the TV time that would otherwise be concentrated on you right now. Delay said "This loss happened because our legal system did not protect the people who need protection most, and that will change. The time will come for the men responsible for this to answer for their behavior, but not today. Today we grieve, we pray, and we hope to God this fate never befalls another." Whatever Tom. You really want to make a difference? You really want to precent another person from dying from hunger? Go to downtown D.C. and work at a homeless shelter. Go to inner city Houston and give food out. Stop cutting funds to programs that help the needy. You talk about saving people and preventing this from happening again, yet you don't actually do anything to help? Tell you what, the next time you want to go on a golf outting, go help a charity instead.

Delay went on to say that The House, "will look at an arrogant and out of control judiciary that thumbs its nose at Congress and the President." However, he said that they will not look into an out of control congress and President that thumbs it's nose at the judiciary and the American people. Seriously, how the hell can you blame the judges? And don't give me this shit about liberal judges. I've looked at who was sitting on these benches and it is very well balanced between the left and right. What Delay really means is that he wants judges out of the way of congress. He doesn't want a check and balance. He just wants a check. This guy needs to go down.

I'm done for the day. It's been a rough week for me. My boss quit today because he found out some shady shit at my company. My car has been messed up because someone who serviced the radiator didn't know what they were doing. My work is freaking crazy right now. It's been a tough week.


Hot off the press!

Via the DNC Internet Team:

Meet Rep. Tom DeLay (R-TX), the man Republicans have chosen as their Majority Leader in the House of Representatives.

Tom DeLay is at the center of a bewildering array of investigations into corruption, abuse of power, and ethics violations.

As the courts and committees investigate DeLay's misdeeds and hand down indictments, keeping track of all the scandals can be a full-time job. So we thought it would helpful to offer folks a quick and easy guide:

People need to get to know Tom DeLay. He personifies the kind of government we're getting from Republicans -- corrupt, power-hungry, and out of touch.

They also need to know that his Republican colleagues in the House have been complicit in his pattern of sleaze. They even changed the ethics rules to protect him, and packed the Ethics Committee with a bunch of DeLay cronies for good measure.
Spread the Word

It is vital that you help us spread the word about Tom DeLay. The more people who know about his record, the more pressure he'll face. Forward this message to your friends or use this handy tool:

Even conservative commentators and editorial boards see the writing on the wall -- they have been weighing in against DeLay's misdeeds and shaming his fellow Republicans for supporting him. But House Republicans don't care -- his money for influence machine and his power-hungry crusades have become standard practice for the GOP.

The DeLay boat is sinking. And it's taking the entire Republican Party with it.

Thank you for making sure every American knows it.

Not in Mexican!

"Neither in French nor English nor in Mexican."
--Declining to answer reporters’ questions at the Summit of the Americas; Quebec City, Canada; April 21, 2001

I am proud to announce that my good friend Rayder has joined the Letters from the Left blog! He made his first post yesterday and it is quite funny. I encourage you to check it out.

Rayder and I have been friends for a few years now and I am happy to have him on board. Rayder is a true political insider as he is an aide to a US Congresswoman from Florida. I hope he will help bring on a few more insiders so we can get a good community going on here with a broad base of views and opinions.

At any rate, you’ve probably seen the commercial on CNN, MSNBC, FOX News, and other nightly news shows that as the viewer to think up any ideas Democrats have had to fix social security. A clock starts to tick and they expect the average person to not think up any. And seriously, who could think any up? I mean, with all the coverage that Terry and the sick Pope are getting is there any room on the news for Democrats ideas for Social Security? Regardless, the commercial ends with the cheap arguments the social security is too important to fall prey to partisan politics. So what, we’re supposed to just go along with Bush because he’s the only one with an idea? B.S.

Well, I was pointed to an article on THE HILL today by Bob Cusack that talks a bit about the plan that Senate Democrats are going to set forth shortly. The plan’s code name is called Saving Options. The Cusack reports the document contains not just one but several legislative possibilities on how to save social Security. Imagine that, several!

Now mind you, I’m sure only one or two of the ideas will actually be presented. You see, Democrats have a habit of thinking before they speak. So, I’m sure that some of the ideas contained in the document are not feasible, and the research that is going into them right now will show that. Thus, of all the options in the document, the ones left standing after the research will be the ones presented. Heed my warning now, the Reds will be all over this shortly and will find the one idea in there that looks the most crazy and yell and holler and make everyone think that is the idea the Democrats have. When in fact, none have been formally presented, and none are even in existence other than those on this piece of paper which is not technically a public document.

All in all, I look forward to some of the proposals put forth by the Democrats in the House and Senate. Unlike Bush’s plan, which seems to have new numbers for it each week, the Democrats will be able to explain why other ideas of theirs didn’t work. And then, perhaps with the right amount of logic, look into ways that with some changing they can use in other aspects of promoting savings in this country.

Enough of that though, now onto someone who has really gotten under my skin, and I am talking about Karen Brauer. She’s the pharmacist who says she was “fired for refusing to fill a prescription for birth control pills.” Media Matters for America, a phenomenal site by the way, has a nice exposé of her up on their site. The matter at hand her is whether or not pharmacists have the right to refuse to give you meds, regardless of what type, because that med goes against their beliefs. Evidently, pharmacists that are anti birth control (these are the same people who are against abortion but refuse to help poor women with any support for their kids) want to be able to refuse to give out birth control because they are “morally” against it. There are several instances of this happening and, as Media Matters points out, Mississippi even passed a bill that makes it legal for health care workers to refuse any service they object too.

The bottom line here is who the hell do these pharmacists think they are? I already have to deal with people in Georgia telling me what days I can and can’t buy alcohol, you’re telling me I have to deal with people that tell me what meds I can and can’t take? Where does this stop? What if they decide that they don’t want to give out antibiotics because it’s they view that the good Lord will take care of you. What if they don’t want to give my father his blood pressure medication because they said the people who make the medication also make abortion pills and it’s against their morals to support them. What if they decide not to give someone their AIDS medication because they think they’re gay and are morally against that life style. This is the same shit.

More info on Brauer by the way, she was fired from K-Mart for not only refusing to fill the prescription, but also for lying to the customer. She said that the pharmacy did not carry the drug at the time, which was a lie. They did have it, she just didn’t have the gall to say, “I’m sorry ma’am, I can’t allow for you to live like a whore anymore. I’m just morally against it. This lady is crazy and I encourage you to read up on the Media Matters article, it’s some good stuff.

Diagnose me, Dr. Frist!


Are you sick? Injured? Worried about a medical problem, but can’t afford a physician? Well, worry no longer! Because Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, MD, doesn’t even need to see you to make a diagnosis and prescribe care.

Speaking on the Senate floor "more as a physician than as a U.S. senator,” Frist said he believed there was “insufficient information to conclude that Terri Schiavo is in a persistent vegetative state."

He didn’t even need to examine the tragic Florida woman who has been fed artificially since she was brain damaged in 1990 -- he just looked at her on videotape.

Now, the LA Times reports that "critics say the majority leader...overstepped in giving an opinion on Terri Schiavo’s condition." Apparently it’s a bio-ethical no-no to diagnosis a patient you’ve never seen. And some people say it’s arrogant for Dr. Frist to involve the U.S. Congress in the personal medical decisions of one family just to suck up to the religious right before the 2008 presidential primaries.

But we say, think of the opportunity!

Take a digital picture or video of your medical problem – tennis elbow, acne, runny nose, gout, or whatever ails you – and send it to the Doctor in charge of the US Senate and your health care.
Tell Dr. Frist you want him to diagnose it and get Congress to pass a law prescribing treatment.
We couldn’t find Dr. Frist’s email address, but we’re sure his Health Policy Director, Dean Rosen, ( would be happy to pass along your pictures and videos. Health Policy Director? Is that like his nurse?

You can also try his Legislative Director,, the Communications Director in the Majority Leader’s office,, his press secretary,, or one of his Legislative Counsels, or

Or feel free to mail to 509 Hart Senate Office Building, Washington, DC, 20510, or fax to 202-228-1264.

How long must this go on!

Bushism for 3/28/2005

"There's no question that the minute I got elected, the storm clouds on the horizon were getting nearly directly overhead."
-Wasthington, D.C.; May 11, 2001

I bet they were W, I bet they were. And you've done your best to make sure those same storm clouds rain all the sulfuric acidic rain they can on everyone around. Clear skies my ass. The only think you're clearing the skies of are birds.

I feel sorry for the Schiavo family in Florida. I can't place myself in their shoes, so I can't say for certain that I wouldn’t be a crazy to save my daughter, if I had one, that was in a similar predicament. However, I can say that I'm fed up with all these crazy people they have around them.

Jesus, who the hell is that brother guy who speaks for them? That guy is a nut. And then there is the medical expert that says Terri can be saved and rehabilitated? Remember kids, this is the same doctor who, as Media Matters for America pointed out, this guy was disciplined in 2003 by the Florida Board of Medicine, because he lied about saying he was a Nobel prize nominee. Of course, that doesn't stop Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum from still referring to him that way.

At any rate, I digress. That really bugs me is that people just say the President or Jeb can just do something because they're the President and the Governor. They can't. There are things called laws. Even the President and the Governor have to abide by the laws. However, evidently Tom Delay doesn't. You can't blame anyone but W and the Republicans for what is happening. And by that I mean all the crazy people saying they can do something. Who can really blame them? W and the Reds have basically just done whatever they wanted up until this point. What's to stop them here? And that's the problem.

You see, when you make it look like you can do anything people begin to think you can do anything. W and company worked very hard over the last several years to make it appear W can do whatever he wants to because, well because he's King George and God is on his side. It's come to bite them in the ass now because all the crazies have come out of the woodwork for this ordeal. So now the current face of the right on television is all the crazy religious zealots we Blues have knows are their biggest supporters of all. Except one thing, they never let them on TV before now. Nope, they always had the soccer mom plant who worked three jobs. OR the black guy who said the Blues rejected him and hasn't done anything for them. That's perfectly okay because we all know that isn't the core of who votes Red. The core is what you see on TV right now, the people who camp out in from of a hospice and pray on the ground, and act like their doing this big deed by getting arrested.

You know what, fuck you. There are fifty other people in there that are dying and they can't go in peace because you people don't have fucking jobs. I mean seriously, who the hell do you think you are? Why aren't you working? I bet if you did you'd be in the 60 some odd percent who don't give a dam about this thing because they have shit to worry about like getting up the next day and going to work at the plant making cars and stuff.

I know it's hard for the Reds to think. Time and time again they've shown they let other people think for them. I think I know why. I found a quote from Hellen Keller, who evidently was a big socialist and feminist (see, school history books don't say anything about her other than she was blind and deaf, because her other actions may bring controversy to the classroom and independent thought, and we know how dangerous that can be). Her quote goes as follows, and I think it makes perfect sense here:

"People do not want to think. If one thinks, one must reach conclusions. Conclusions are not always pleasant."
-Helen Keller

Hot off the press!

Just got this e-mail:

Dear Steven,

Democrats in Congress are in a battle for the very soul of our nation with Republicans whose arrogance and abuse of power have made a mockery of Congress. As House Democratic Leader, I should know.

We must ask ourselves, do we want to adopt corruption, indifference to suffering, and contempt for democracy as American values? Will we allow the progress America has made over the past five decades under Democratic leadership to be erased in a few short years by an extreme right-wing Congress run amuck?

The Republicans in the House of Representatives, Senate, and White House are awash in scandals involving everything from bribery and intimidation on the House floor to vicious attacks on America's most vulnerable. Are these the "moral values" that the Republicans like to crow about?

They are not my moral values.

This morning, my fellow House Democrats and I signed the Pact for Progress, a simple statement of unity in defense of the American ideals and democracy we cherish. I ask you to join me today as a Citizen Co-sponsor of this Pact in a strong statement that we will not stand by as Republicans try to turn back the clock on all that America has accomplished as a nation:

The Republicans' arrogance and abuse of power have risen to new heights in this 109th Congress. Never before has the institution of the House of Representatives -- which is supposed to represent all of the American people -- been used so cynically by one party to protect its own power.

Here are just a few examples of Republicans' abuse of power...

The Assault on Social Security. Social Security is the most popular, most successful government program in history, and now the Republicans are attempting to turn this cornerstone of the New Deal into a raw deal for millions of Americans by privatizing it, which would slash benefits by more than 40 percent while adding trillions to the debt. A new study from Yale University informs us that 71% of recipients would likely lose out through privatization, and yet Republicans charge on without a care.

A Reverse Robin Hood Budget. President Bush and House Republicans are pushing a budget that will shortchange housing, education, and veterans, while heaping even more tax cuts on the extremely wealthy and handing out sacred lands that belong to all of us as prizes to their political contributors in the oil industry. Nowhere is our government's morality tested more starkly than in the hard numbers of the federal budget, and this year's proposal fails this test miserably.

The Gutting of Medicaid. President Bush and House Republicans have targeted the social program providing the most basic health care to struggling Americans, with a staggering $40 billion cut that will have repercussions for virtually every state in the union. The Republicans hope to dismantle our great social contracts, destroy our very moral fabric, and make America into a country that leaves its most vulnerable destitute -- even as tax giveaways for the super rich are given the highest priority.

Leading an Unethical Government. Judging by the steady stream of scandals revolving around Republican House Leader Tom DeLay, involving everything from bribes and intimidation on the House floor to junkets paid for with millions in extorted casino money, ethics must somehow be the opposite of moral values. This comes after three separate ethical condemnations last year and the looming threat of indictment for shady corporate fundraising in Texas. But rather than curtail his corruption or humble himself, Tom DeLay and his loyal rubberstamps in Congress have simply rigged the ethics rules to protect him and purged from the Ethics Committee the Chairman, Members and staff who held him accountable last year. The American people do not conduct their lives in an ethical vacuum, and our Representatives should not either.

These are not my moral values and I am sure they aren't yours either. In fact, they're an affront to the values of tens of millions of Americans who believe their government should work for all -- not just the well connected and the very wealthy. We are for progress, we are for REAL reform, and we will not tolerate attempts to turn back the clock on our beloved country and our democracy

In the last Congress, House Republicans became the most arrogant, unethical and corrupt majority in modern Congressional history. Tragically, this profoundly immoral behavior is continuing without a pause in the first few months of this Congress.

Please be a Citizen Co-sponsor for the Pact for Progress and stand with us:

Thank you so much, and I look forward to fighting along side you.

Nancy Pelosi

Okay, okay, so it was just a stupid mailing list letter, but what she said is true. With all this crap going on someone had to get the troops rolling. If you're a democrat check it out, if you're not send me some e-mail telling me I'm going to hell or something.

Cracker say what?

This one is for all you Michiganders out there:

Michigan State Rep. Jack Hoogendyke is on record as saying, "I don't see the need for a minimum wage at all. I think it should be up to the markets and demand for skills to determine what wages are appropriate."

I mean, this makes sense. Let the market drive wages! Yeah, because if you can't trust millionares to decide what you're worth, who can you trust?

Just remeber, if you're being paid minimum wage right now it just means that if your employer could pay you less, they would.

Also, this is the same representative who wanted to propose a bill giving legislators the power to prohibit certain classes at Universities. The legislation would have amend the Michigan constitution to:

* Require public universities each year to submit class lists to the Legislature with detailed descriptions.

* Allow the Legislature, with a two-thirds vote, to prohibit the teaching of any class at a publicly funded university.

* Allow the Legislature, with a majority vote, to withhold funding from a public university that doesn't comply with the review structure.

Because, I mean, why trust the ability of professor's at the University of Michigan to be able to decide what classes they should teach. They're only one of the top 5 Universities in the country, and possibly one of the best in the world, why should we trust them to know what they're doing?

I can see it now, "I'm sorry folks, English 404 has been cancled this year because the state legislature thought we might be teaching you to think to much for yourself. They decided you should just be little worker clones who let other people think for you."

This guy needs to be voted out of office and fast, before he can do any real harm. Fortunatly, Michigan now has Governor Jennifer M. Granholm. A real tough as nails, get shit done, type of lady. She drives Rush crazy, because he thinks all women should be back in the kitchen and rasing their families, not out doing men's work. I know Granholm will keep Hoogendyke in line. I wonder if Hoogendyke is so upset with education because too many kids made fun of his last name growing up?

Heh heh, he said dyke.


Do as I say, not as I do

Comforting words from our President:

"It's one things about insurance, that's a Washington term."
--St. Louis; October 18, 2000

I've always found it odd that the same people who call themselves "Right to Lifers" or people who promote a "culture of life" are also the key champions of the War in Iraq and the Death Penalty/Capital Punishment.

Just what or whos lives are they promoting?

The only good Delay is the one where you're stuck in an elevator with a bunch of models.

El Presidente Stupido:

"And there's no doubt in my mind, not one doubt in my mind, that we will fail."
--Washington, D.C.; October 4, 2001

"It is more than just Terri Schiavo. This is a critical issue for people in this position, and it is also a critical issue to fight that fight for life, whether it be euthanasia or abortion. I tell you, ladies and gentlemen, one thing God has brought to us is Terri Schiavo to elevate the visibility of what's going on in America. That Americans would be so barbaric as to pull a feeding tube out of a person that is lucid and starve them to death for two weeks. I mean, in America that's going to happen if we don't win this fight.

"And so it's bigger than any one of us, and we have to do everything that is in our power to save Terri Schiavo and anybody else that may be in this kind of position, and let me just finish with this:

"This is exactly the kind of issue that's going on in America, that attacks against the conservative moment, against me and against many others. The point is, the other side has figured out how to win and to defeat the conservative movement, and that is to go after people personally, charge them with frivolous charges, link up with all these do-gooder organizations funded by George Soros, and then get the national media on their side. That whole syndicate that they have going on right now is for one purpose and one purpose only, and that is to destroy the conservative movement. It is to destroy conservative leaders, and not just in elected office, but leading. I mean, Ed Feulner, of the Heritage Foundation today was under attack in the National Journal. This is a huge nationwide concerted effort to destroy everything we believe in. And you need to look at this, and what's going on and participate in fighting back.

"You know, one way they stopped churches from getting into politics was Lyndon Johnson, who passed a law that said you couldn't get in politics or you're going to lose your tax-exempt status, because they were all opposed to him when he was running for President. That law we're trying to repeal. It's very difficult to do that, but the point is, when they can knock out a leader, then no other leader will step forward for a while, because they don't want to go through the same thing. If they go after and get a pastor, then other pastors shrink from what they should be doing. It forces Christians back into the church. That's what's going on in America. The world is too bad and I'm going to get inside this building and I'm not going to play in the world. That's not what Christ asked us to do.

"And so they understand that. It is a political maneuver, and they are going to try to destroy the conservative movement, and we have to fight back, so please, this afternoon, each and every one of you, if you know a senator, give them a call. They'll say our bill can pass in the House. Tell them, okay, your bill is fine, but the House bill is better, and I want the House bill. Particularly if you know Democrats. Don't let them get off the hook by hiding behind one House and the other is adjourned. We can do anything we need to do to pass any bill that we need to pass."

--House Majority Leader Tom Delay at a speech for the Family Research Council at the Willard Hotel in Washington

What an ass.

And now time for stuff that dosen't really matter

Las palabras de un presidente horrible:

"I think the American people--I hope the American--I don't think, let me--I hope the American people trust me."
--Washington, D.C.; December 18, 2002

Makes me feel like I can trust you W.

So, what the hell is going on in government nowadays? I mean, it's gotten to the point where that don't do ANYTHING that matters anymore.

Steroids in Baseball? What? Better have some congressional grandstanding and get to the bottom of this.

Someone wants to pull a feeding tube out of a brain damaged woman? We'll get to the bottom of this even if we have to create brand new laws to do it.

What do you mean medicare is failing? Who gives a shit, the national passtime is in crisis! We need to do something.

I've lost faith, I just have. I mean, what is going on? It these aren't the signs of the end times I don't know what is.

Trees? Who needs trees when you have a Hummer?

Comforting words from our president:

"One of the most meaningful things that's happened to me since I've been the governor--the president--governor--president. Oops. Ex-governor. I went to Bethesda Naval Hospital to give a fellow a Purple Heart, and at the same moment I watched him--get a Purple Heart for action in Iraq--and at that same--right after I gave him the Purple Heart, he was sworn in as a citizen of the United States--a Mexican citizen, now a United States citizen."

-Washington, D.C.; January 9, 2004

The AP reports that "the Senate, by a 51-49 vote, rejected an attempt by Democrats and GOP moderates to remove a refuge drilling provision from next year's budget, preventing opponents from using a filibuster -- a tactic that has blocked repeated past attempts to open the Alaska refuge to oil companies."

Basically, they said, "We know we can never pass this normally because all you liberal commie pussies will hoot and holler about some stupid endangered species and possibly attract attention to what we're trying to do. Then other commie liberals will get all worked up about it and it will get on the news and then we'll be forced to vote the measure down or you can filibuster it, pansies. So, you know what we're going to do? We're going to attach the provision to next years budget so if you raise a fuss we can blame you for wanting to close down the government, call you a partisan hack, blame you for being selfish, and then look all good on Fox News. This is as good as done now wusses. Now, I can go fill up my Hummer."

This is bull crap. There is believed to be billions of barrels of oil in the ANWR. Key word in that sentence, "believed." No one really knows. However, we're willing to go dig the place up and look because who cares! The rapture is coming so why give a damn!

Here are some ANWR facts lifted directly from CNN because I'm too lazy to go look this up myself:

ANWR Facts

--The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge covers 19.6 million acres.

--It is home to 45 different species of mammals -- including the polar bear, wolf and moose -- plus 36 species of fish and 180 species of birds.

--The oil debate focuses on 1.5 million acres, where the U.S. Geological Survey estimated there could be 5.6 billion to 16 billion barrels of oil. --Drilling supporters say it would reduce dependency on foreign oil, add jobs and have little impact on the area. (Remember these are the same people who said Iraq has to many WMD they're practically oozing out their boarders. They also passed a 2004 Medicare "reform" bill insulated the pharmaceutical industry from price competition. Don't forget the recent bankruptcy "reform" act, passed last week by Congress, is a multibillion-dollar boon to the credit card industry. And who doesn't love the recent tort "reform" bill moved damage suits into federal courts, which are less likely to yield big judgments to Americans who are maimed by defective or shoddy products.)

--Opponents say it will irreparably harm a fragile environment, that oil won't flow for a decade and that it won't dent the 20 million barrels the U.S. uses daily. Sources: AP, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Smells like teen spirit

A word from our President:

"As you know, these are open forums, you're able to come and listen to what I have to say."
--Washington, D.C.; October 28, 2003

I just want to say kudos to the Senate today. They managed to stop some new measures for Bush's Clear Skies Initiative. In case you don't know what that is. It's the Administrations attempt to change the standards that Clinton put in place which actually requires industry to pollute less and replace them with ones that will pollute the air so much it will be clear of birds.


The return of the one and only....

Quote of the day from our president, W:

"I was proud the other day when both Republicans and Democrats stood with me in the Rose Garden to announce their support for a clear statement of purpose: you disarm, or we will."

--Speaking about Saddam Hussein; Manchester,
New Hampshire; October 5, 2002

It's been about a month since I last filed a post. A lot has happened and as usual I'm pissed. However, there has been some glimmer of hope, which keeps me going.

It will soon be harder to declare bankruptcy. I mean, it only makes sense. The credit industry just makes so much money, while allow the same people they prey on to be able to make a fresh start when all else fails. Also, over 60% of all bankruptcies are because of expenses incurred while trying to pay for medical bills. However, they don't care.

Dean is in charge of the DNC now. He was my guy for the election and I was hurt when he didn't get in. Things are already starting to change at the DNC though. This gives me large hope.
