"Give me the liberty to know, to utter, and to argue freely according to conscience, above all liberties. Truth was never put to the worse in a free and open encounter..."
~ Milton
Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.
~Benjamin Franklin

The whole "turn your back on Bush" thing meant something.

(While you're over at Newsday, check out Paul Vitello's price list for selling his media support for Rightwingnut causes. His pricing is very reasonable.)

I, and anyone else interested in the degeneration of the media, specifically the New York Times in this country probably need to read My Times, by John Hess. A discussion of the man and the book.

An unfriendly (to Bush) but telling review of a Bush 1/14/05 "chat" with journalists.

Be afraid. Be very afraid. (Well...smile, too. But not too much...because another Bush presidency is on the minds of those in charge of the Right wing.)

Let's hear a cheer for permalinks.

I r a q = Vietnam. Bush = Nixon. The parallels aren't exact, but there are increasing similarities.

A really big difference, of course, is that Nixon inherited his war (although his in-office problems stretched far beyond that). Bush went out looking for a disaster.
