How many lies did you count in Laura Bush's speech?
For starters: how can you have freedom if you have no elections? Iraq hasn't had elections yet--but a puppet government installed by the US who conspicuously retains Gepetto rights. Bush was undecided about invading? The plans were drummed up years ago. In addition to him going on record months before his so-called "indecision" as saying about Saddam, "Fuck Saddam. We're taking him out."
Oh, and how nauseating they're continuing to run with their Iraq = World War Two pile of horseshit. "My grandfather, of the greatest generation, fought his own terrorists . . . like we do today in Iraq . . . " Jesus fucking Christ, lady! If anything, the US invading Iraq is more like Germany invading Poland! You don't invade sovereign countries while selling it to your people with gratuitous lies and then be compared to a country first attacked at Pearl Harbor! Are you nuts?

You know, I'm not a pacifist. If someone did that to me, I would have to hurt them. With the aggressor's arm extended like that, it would be relatively easy to break their arm--for instance, if you moved under their arm with your shoulder placed firmly under their elbow and pushed their hand down, you could snap their bone. Or, you could open your mouth and bite their fingers. Either way, that woman on the left deserves a royal ass liberal beatdown.
Several groups, led by the nationwide coalition Food Not Bombs, which provides vegetarian meals to the homeless, are assembling volunteers and cooking tools and making arrangements with food donors for the convention, organizers said.
"This is going to be the biggest thing we've done in years," said Food Not Bombs founder Keith McHenry, who was stripped of his pots, pans and stoves when he tried to set up an open-air food kitchen on Boston Common during last week's convention.
"We expect to get hassled in New York, too, so we're going to do the cooking inside this time," said McHenry, who has catered hundreds of radical happenings during the past 25 years, from his office in Tucson, Ariz. "We keep it simple. We would probably have rice and beans and sauteed veggies and fruit salad." [more]
