Bush 393,000 Average Jobs per Year; Clinton 2.9 Million
Here are some statistics from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. All are for the period from January 2001 - July 2005. Add three zeros to all the numbers. These numbers illustrate how bad the job creation statistics of Bush are. The industries that have increased workers are emboldened.
WaPo Says BushCo Lowering Expectations
The Bush administration is significantly lowering expectations of what can be achieved in Iraq, recognizing that the United States will have to settle for far less progress than originally envisioned during the transition due to end in four months, according to U.S. officials in Washington and Baghdad.

The United States no longer expects to see a model new democracy, a self-supporting oil industry or a society where the majority of people are free from serious security or economic challenges, U.S. officials say.

"What we expected to achieve was never realistic given the timetable or what unfolded on the ground," said a senior official involved in policy since the 2003 invasion. "We are in a process of absorbing the factors of the situation we're in and shedding the unreality that dominated at the beginning."

What, you mean we're NOT doing as well as the lies we're told? The wrap-up on this piece is FABULOUS: " Mission Accomplished. Who is next to be liberated?" *screams laughing*

Extreme Sunday's Amnesia On Anti-Catholicism
</fundie bitchslap>

For those of you unaware, Cindy Sheehan is the woman who is camped out in front of W's ranch while he's on his extended vacation. Her son was a soldier killed in Iraq, and she wants an opportunity to ask Herr Shrub a few questions. Of course, it's created quite the shitstorm on both sides and she has attracted both supporters and counterdemonstrators.

This one is not KOS related, but I was reminded of it yesterday. Evidently the Fundies want their very own state, and not just a 'red state' - one so red the shade is called 'Blood O' the Lamb' red. It's called Christian Exodus, and it's aiming to eat South Carolina. Personally, I'd like my own state of likeminded peoples, we can call it 'Heathenotopia' and the capital city shall be called 'Pervy'. I'll see your fatwa and raise you one jihad!

I want to book my next vacation in Heathenotopia! May I please reserve a suite with a view of the beach and hot and cold running hot men? :}
14th-Aug-2005 02:21 pm (UTC) - Welcome To Heathenotopia® - NOW you're fucked...
All Heathenotopia resort facilities have ocean views, all are clothing optional, and there are hot people of both sexes - you can even order them through room service in some areas.

Now that's what I call room SERVICE!! Excellent. I'm turning in the vacation request form tomorrow *big smile*.

If you go outside right now and cup your hand over your ear facing east, you can literally hear the fags in Charleston alternately shrieking and laughing.

Among other things, I'm amazed at the fundie's ability to "flip-flop" on Roman Catholicism. My own father, a fairly rabid Reformed Presbyterian went from saying that Catholics couldn't be considered Christian, to thinking "The Passion of the Christ" was a great movie. I just had to call him on that and then he tempered his statement with "well, there really was too much gratuitous violence."

Not having seen the movie, it seems to me to follow very closely the RC version of the crucifiction, focusing on the anti-Semitism and suffering of Christ, versus the Protestant focus on Resurrection and Redemption. (you'll have to forgive me. I'm a lapsed Presbyterian, now Agnostic, Animist and a bit Pagan, so when push comes to shove, I instinctively back the Protestant doctrine). So it really was surprising to me that the fundie churches were pushing this movie so hard. Didn't they recently make a movie about Martin Luther? Wouldn't that be more of interest to them? Or has the idea of reforming a corrupt and intolerant church become anathema to them as well?

As to the fundies having their own state; that would be marvelous. Blue would win every time! Although the crazies here (southern Oregon) might welcome them to the "State of Jefferson," in which southern Oregon would merge with northern California, so all of the "sinful" big cities could be excluded. In which case I would have to move again. :-)

Applying logic to fundies are we? Oh you poor dear thing...

TPOTC was a propagandist's wet dream - admittedly the wet substance being the blood of Christ. On the show "Weeds" that comes on Showtime, one of the characters talks about people getting high before going to see it. It's followed with "Can you imagine seeing that movie NOT high? Religion my ass, it's a straight up snuff film!"

The fundies technically already have a state, it's called DELUSIONAL.

I know, I'm an optimist to the point of stupidity.

"Can you imagine seeing that movie NOT high? Religion my ass, it's a straight up snuff film!

I think that, even if I'd wanted to see the film, it would have been hard for me in a non-high state. I just hate Mel Gibson to begin with. Except that he was oh-so-cool in Road Warrior. But he used up that credit with me a long time ago.

Now if they would just STAY there, and not vote. Woops, there goes the optimism again.

Yeah, I hate Bush too.

What a great t-shirt that would make!

Hmmm... everything worked out so well the last time South Carolina wanted to secede, after all; let's try that again...

*chokes, sprays green tea all over everything*

I heart you Ian, you know that.
14th-Aug-2005 07:33 pm (UTC)
I do now! *grin*

And I checked out these folks' website-- how seriously can I take any rebellious group whose website basically starts with a "Merchandise" link? I mean, really, is this a revolt or a shopping opportunity? Sheesh...

Wow. Yes, we certainly do have a "problem"...

# Abortion continues against the wishes of many States
# Sodomite and lesbian "marriage" is now legal in Massachusetts (and coming soon to a neighborhood near you)
# Children who pray in public schools are subject to prosecution 1
# Our schools continue to teach the discredited theory of Darwinian evolution 1 2
# The Bible is still not welcome in schools except under unconstitutional FEDERAL guidelines
# The 10 Commandments remain banned from public display
# Sodomy is now legal AND celebrated as "diversity" rather than condemned as perversion
# Preaching Christianity will soon be outlawed as "hate speech" 1 2 3
# Fathers are denied equal rights under law in cases of child custody
# Our right to keep and bear arms continues to be INFRINGED
# Private homes are now subject to arbitrary government seizure

I'd say that's stretching things... just a touch...

*Bows head* Maybe I just need a good flogging. Mmmm...

SO, I think this move to SC is a great idea.
IF all the crazies go to one state, they lose electing power, because of the limited number of electoral votes they would be alotted. The rest of the nation would be a lot more level headed....
15th-Aug-2005 05:17 pm (UTC)
LOL! Oh... my... god!!! Can they really be serious about Christian Exodus? And they talk about us homos having an agenda?!? Sheesh.

Well, if they all move into one state, it'll be easier to accidentally drop a bomb on them or something...
