Once more, a nation divided Kerry did serve with distinction in Vietnam when he easily could have avoided that killing field. His service to his country shouldnít be diminished by the same despicable, politically motivated tactics visited upon Sens. John McCain in South Carolina and Max Cleland in Georgia, also Viet vets. This kind of gutter-bashing doesnít belong in American politics, and vets shouldnít allow themselves to be used as ammo for cheap shots at one of their own.

BUSH OUTSOURCES ELECTION TO INDIA Citing "significant cost savings," President George W. Bush today outsourced the fall election to a call center in Bangalore, India.
Mr. Bush said that by having all voting and vote-counting take place in Bangalore, the U.S. will save up to $3 billion, which could be used to finance democracy in Iraq.

I don't know if George from Shiner is serious or not but if he is he is a sick man and I am glad I don't know him. I wish I had not look at your web site today. That is awlful to read something like that. I also wish you would take that picture of the dog off of your website. Thanks,
Happy to oblige. As you can see, I am in the process of erasing the billboard photo right now.



email Kerry joke
One sunny day in 2005, an old man approached the White House from across Pennsylvania Avenue, where he'd been sitting on a park bench. He spoke to the Marine standing guard and said, "I would like to go in and meet with President Kerry." The Marine replied, "Sir, Mr. Kerry is not President and doesn't reside here." The old man said, "Okay," and walked away.
The following day, the same man approached the White House and said to the same Marine, "I would like to go in and meet with President Kerry." The Marine again told the man, "Sir, as I said yesterday, Mr. Kerry is not President and doesn't reside here." The man thanked him and again walked away.
The third day, the same man approached the White House and spoke to the very same Marine, saying "I would like to go in and meet with president Kerry." The Marine, understandably agitated at this point, looked at the man and said, "Sir, this is the third day in a row you have been here asking to speak to Mr. Kerry. I've told you already that Mr. Kerry is not the President and doesn't reside here. Don't you understand?"
The old man answered, "Oh, I understand. I just love hearing it."
The Marine snapped to attention, saluted, and said, "See you tomorrow, sir."

email Kerry joke
Brad - You are using old jokes! The last time this story was on your site, the name was Clinton and not Kerry. The punch line had to do with Clinton not being in the White House anymore. EBD
Dear EDB: There are no new jokes, ever. Just adaptations and rewrites.

Records counter a critic of Kerry Newly obtained military records of one of Sen. John F. Kerry's most vocal critics, who has accused the Democratic presidential candidate of lying about his wartime record to win medals, contradict his own version of events.
Last month, Thurlow swore in an affidavit that Kerry was "not under fire" when he fished Lt. James Rassmann out of the water. He described Kerry's Bronze Star citation, which says that all units involved came under "small arms and automatic weapons fire," as "totally fabricated."
"I never heard a shot," Thurlow said in his affidavit, which was released by Swift Boats Veterans for Truth. The group claims the backing of more than 250 Vietnam veterans, including a majority of Kerry's fellow boat commanders.
A document recommending Thurlow for the Bronze Star noted that all his actions "took place under constant enemy small arms fire which LTJG THURLOW completely ignored in providing immediate assistance" to the disabled boat and its crew. The citation states that all other units in the flotilla also came under fire.

Was Kerry in combat on Dec. 2, 1968? The question is not whether Mr. Kerry was sufficiently wounded on Dec. 2. The question is: Was Mr. Kerry actually involved in combat that night?

Residents attack Peeping Tom "An apparent peeping Tom was sexually assaulted with a tree branch after being discovered peering into the bedroom window of a five-year-old Ohio girl."
Police mug shots and report
If the intelligence information announced Sunday 8/1 about a Terrorist Threat against 5 financial institutions actually justified placing defenses in public places in New York, Washington DC and Newark, then those guards should still be in place 30 days later, due to the vagueness about when any such attacks might happen.
If the guards are gone by 9/1 (and there has been no new intel to cancel the "attack threat") then I will believe the public measures weren't considered really necessary in the first place.
