Letters To Ed :-)

"We've been duped by the Republicans. Kentucky Sen. and minority leader Mitch McConnell in a news conference one day after the election, stated that the single and sole goal of the GOP over the next two years is: to make Barack Obama a single term president. What an arrogant and obnoxious goal and statement. There agenda before the election was to get votes by promising that there first goals were jobs, the economy and health care reform. It seems their goal is to grab power, not to do things for the people that are in need of jobs and or unemployment pay, health care for those that don't have it, and the people losing their homes. This is the same party that wanted the auto plants and their suppliers to go out of business. We are just coming back from what they did to this country, and now we have them back to do the same things to our country again. What a mess the next two years is going to bring to this country. Talk about partisanship." Carl D. Leow Rogers Cit

"500 tons of uranium shipped from Iraq, Pentagon says"CNN

Defense Personnel Transport Uranium Ore Out of Iraq

By Jim Garamone American Forces Press Service WASHINGTON, July 7, 2008 – Defense personnel have completed the transfer of 550 metric tons of Iraqi uranium ore to Canada, Defense officials said here today.

The Iraqi government asked the United States to help transfer the yellowcake -- as the ore is known -- from Tuwaitha Nuclear Research Center near Baghdad to its buyer in Canada, Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman said today.

The military dubbed the movement Operation McCall, and it ended July 5. DoD’s portion of the operation involved the transfer of the ore.

Yellowcake is a uranium ore that can be processed to become nuclear fuel. State and Energy Department personnel also participated in the transfer.

If you SPREAD lies and misconceptions, Shrill, that makes YOU a LIAR. You failed to read the article, all you did was read the first right wing take on the article in the New York Times, and regurgitate in Politibrew. Reading is not enough IF you did read it, you must also be capable of comprehending what you read. I rate your puerile take panties on fire!

"The case for an Iraqi WMD program in the nuclear area has thus now completely collapsed. Since it was the nukes that were truly scary (rightwing commentators kept saying Saddam might give a suitcase bomb to al-Qaeda, never a likely scenario), not botulism or mustard gas, one wonders if the Congress would have authorized the President to go to war if it had known there were no nukes. The Niger documents turn out to be clumsy forgeries, raising questions about whether Bush, Cheney and others who depended on them were attempting to deceive US public opinion and that of the world.”

“It appears to be the case that Iraq simply has no nuclear weapons program. Al-Baradei of the IAE[A] has swept the country with Geiger counters and cannot find evidence of such a thing. The program once employed 12,000 scientists, so it could not easily be hidden if it existed. The evidence given last summer and fall by US officials, including President Bush, included: 1) satellite photos showing expansion of buildings at a site once used for the program; 2) documents showing Iraqi purchases of uranium from Niger; 3) Iraqi purchase of aluminum tubing that might be used in centrifuges for the enrichment of uranium. Al-Baradei visited the buildings and found that they were now devoted to some other use and their expansion had nothing to do with nukes. The Niger documents were closely examined and found to be forgeries. The aluminum tubing has the wrong specifications for use in a centrifuge and was purchased for making conventional missiles. "

www(dot)newrepublic(dot)com/article/119832/gop-claim-chemical-weapons-iraq-prove-bush-was-right on Septmeber 12, 2002, President Bush described a different threat while making the case for the 2003 Iraq invasion: “Right now, Iraq is expanding and improving facilities that were used for the production of biological weapons.” The Times' investigation doesn't mention any findings of biological weapons.

He went on, “The regime is rebuilding and expanding facilities capable of producing chemical weapons.”

According to the investigation, the chemical weapons discovered by U.S. soldiers after the 2003 invasion were all manufactured before 1991.

Oh look. Both scrambled eggs, frying in a pan. Got any bacon, or just thousands and thousands of WMD in Iraq?

I linked the NYT article Normugsie. Also included three news videos.

Tell Jaxstrap that WMD means WMD, and it's not a synonym for nuclear weapons.

Bush - truth teller

Obama - habitual liar

HERE is the clincher in the article..."in 5 of 6 instances (of old chemical weapons) in which troops were wounded by chemical agents, the munitions appeared to have been designed in the UNITED STATES (of America), manufactured in Europe and filled in chemical agent production lines built in Iraq by Western companies". Spread that, butterbean.

"A" guy built a pond, then it got rescinded by the feds. Moral of the story: Make sure you comply with EPA regulations. But who would be so dumb as to not keep up with them? Anyone we know?

Posted 40 days ago.

Yes! They found the chemical weapons we knew Hussein had since 1991! None of the weapons were manufactured during the time Bush said Hussein was operating a chemical factory! And where are the nukes Bush said Hussein was building!

Bush apologist bait and switch alert!

"remnants of LONG ABANDONED programs, built in close collaboration with the West", and "old chemical munitions", "filthy, rusted or corroded" , in reference to aged munitions that WERE found during the Immoral, Illegal LIE based Iraq WAR. Learn how to read before you spread lies, and give excuses, and apologize for the Bush/Cheney reign of terror. Rshrill, you may be as dumb as a post, and are proving that daily.

So Shrill "has a banana"! When you practice swallowing it, do you first remove the skin, or does it feel better with the peel.

I tune in to Fox 'News' for comic relief, but there is very little comedy. Then, I check in with Politibrew, for more comic relief. Nothing here folks, move along.

You must not have read the story about the guy who filed for his pond and was approved by local and state agencies...then the Fed stepped in. He's not nearly the only one either.

BREAKING: Saddam Hussein had lots of weapons of mass destruction!

Of course he did.

So, Bush didn't "lie". Obama on the other hand, is a serial liar.

Shove it, you stupid prog dogs.

I've already done things to my property. All you have to do is file the permits. America is a nation of laws. many of us choose to follow them, some people don't.

I don't read the Alpena News. I refuse to pay to read a newspaper when there are thousands of newspapers online still free. I get local news such as the story amos referenced from Alpena Now and WATZ.

Obviously I meant the products the EPA regulates, I forgot about your reading comprehension issues. What is my side? 30 states are going to have legal gay marriage. Let's talk about your side, the minority of bigots and homophobes. I'm just saying nuts such as yourself believe gay marriage is one step away from people marrying their pets, as if Rover can sign a marriage license.

Jaxie:

Apparently one local from your side thinks folks should be able to at least live in sin with their pets. Slippery slope?

Uh huh. Converse with him some more.

This paper has one conservative and three loons. It used to have a RINO/Libertarian too who never uttered a single syllable of support for the one conservative in this paper.

I've got my own "banana", OK wimp? Make sure you continue hiding every syllable of yours.

The department of corrections recommends no jail time for the 'sodomy' act. Judge Mack gave him 60 days etc. I used to like Mike. I notified the ACLU. A 68 year old man should not sit in jail for committing a violation of an overturned outdated christian law. Let him out. Leave him alone.
