Mike Connell set-up the alternate email and communications system for the White House. He was responsible for creating the system that hosted the infamous GWB43.com accounts that Karl Rove and others used.

Wall St. sets the stage for the next Big Heist

One could not help but notice the constant emphasis, during and since the Obama campaign, on Climate Change and Green energy programs. The world has a real need to develop more oil independent energy sources and halt the wholesale rape of Mother Earth. However, hearing these pleas from Washington to London from the highest offices in the land only demand more thorough investigation

Clinton III Continuity We Can Believe In

This is part mea culpa, so please indulge my quoting myself. Back on November 5th much of the country celebrated the end of an error and the election of the first non-white president. (We’ll get to “male” and “Christian” later – much later, I suppose. "Ivy League?" Maybe never.) I wrote: “We’ll know soon enough how hard we’ll have to fight bad Obama policy. Even before Inauguration Day, we’ll know. Who Obama picks for his “team” will be all-telling…If President Obama fails to break completely with the narcissistic Baby Boomer politicians; we’ll know.

Forget Depp: Somali pirates risk all for riches, women

NAIROBI, Kenya - There's at least one job these days that's recession-proof, if you can handle shark-infested seas, outrun some of the world's most powerful navies, and keep your cool when your hostages get antsy.

A pirate's life in Somalia isn't for everyone. However, nothing comes easily in one of the poorest and most unstable countries on Earth, and when you consider the dearth of career options for Somalis on land, a pirate's life starts to look more than cushy by comparison.

Olbermann refers to Bush 9/11 'lies' as 'Insult the Dead-gate'

As the departing Bush administration frantically attempts to shore up its place in history, MSNBC's Keith Olbermann stands ready to kick the props out from under it again. A renewed claim that "no one could have anticipated" the attacks of 9/11 attracted his scorn in particular on Thursday's Countdown.

"This is a White House talking point still, even though your average three-year-old could disprove it using an etch-a-sketch." Olbermann sneered on Thursday, over the heading, "Insult the Dead-gate."

1 Sen + 1 Rep can legally stop Obama

SCOTUS-POTUS Update
Posted on December 18th, 2008 by Jim Delaney

"The 20th Amendment provides guidance as to how to proceed if a President-elect (which, despite his impressive podium seal, Obama is not until 1/9/09) is rendered unqualified.

As indicated previously, a President-elect’s eligibility can be properly challenged during “the time prior to inauguration” (1/20/09)–but, of course, in a free society such as ours legal challenges to his qualifications are allowed so long as the issue remains unresolved. And in the works are scores of suits with that challenge in mind.

Oh and the corporate jet has to go as well. This passes for a plan these days. Who are they trying to kid ?

You wouldn't buy our shitty cars ... So, we'll be taking your money anyway.

As always, read the fine print.

It says ...

You probably thought it was smart to buy a foreign import of superior quality, with better mileage and resale value. Maybe you even thought that years of market share loss might prod us into rethinking our process and redesigning our products with better quality in mind. But you forgot one thing: We spend a shitload of money on lobbyists. So now you’re out $25 billion, plus the cost of your Subaru. Maybe next time you’ll buy American like a real man. Either way, we’re cool.

Barack Obama: The Naked Emperor

Hope is like riding a carousel horse; no matter how fast you go you never get closer to the one in front. The idea, however, is to persuade you to stay on the horse, despite the evitable disappointment, in the 'hope' that things will change. But they don't because the very system is designed to prevent it.

Indianapolis voters surprised people when they elected Republican Ballard after becoming alarmed by tax increases under the Democrat, Bart Peterson. Taxes have changed little since then.
