Manitu, what an awesome site that is! I just read one article, this one:
http://www.democracynow.org/article.pl? ... 04/1524256.

Please read the above article, everyone. It really blew me away that this is only one instance of our duly elected officials (Tom DeLay) presenting a purely manufactured image to the public and all the while doing the exact opposite in reality. This stuff is truly evil .

I have added democracynow.org, to "My Favorites".

Uh Oh, the link doesn't work for some reason, GRRRRRR.

Okay then, go to manitu's link above, scroll down to "Previous Shows" and then open up: Forced Abortions & Sweatshops: A Look at Jack Abramoff's Ties to the South Pacific Island of Saipan & How Tom DeLay Became An Advocate for Sweatshop Factory Owners

Democracy now is really great. They were the first to break the news about the army using white phosphorus. My mom is into it to and she told me about this breaking story, and only just recently on mainstream media did they admit to using it. I am glad you like it.

This is from todays Washington Post.

Does the Right Know Jack?

By Howard Kurtz

This is a real test for conservative commentators.

The Jack Abramoff guilty plea this week puts the crooked lobbyist smack in the center of what could balloon into the biggest congressional scandal in decades. Abramoff happens to be a Bush Pioneer, a DeLay pal, and generally someone who was deeply embedded in the Republican power structure.

What's more, Abramoff is a symbol of a capital awash in tainted cash and legislative favors, a system that turns on golfing trips to Scotland and congressionally earmarked bridges to nowhere -- in short, a very fat target for editorial disapproval.

But even though Abramoff steered some client cash to Democrats, this is, for the moment, a largely Republican scandal. So do folks on the right unload on Jack and his enablers, or stick to the defensive party talking points?......................read on: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/co ... s_politics
