I picked up the New York Times yesterday, it’s a thinsheet too, like the LA Times.I ripped out four pages from the newspaper, only one of them was a piece of journalism.
Columnist Bob Herbert wrote a great piece about the proud achievements of what Americans coyly call “liberals”. That is US citizens with a modicum of intelligence and a social conscience. I put that last bit in there to distinguish them from intelligent conservatives-they’re the ones who know they’re f&8k9nG the rest of us over and get sadistic pleasure from it. They’re the ones who know it’s torture, think it’s OK and actually enjoy it being done to “terrrrists”.
Herbert’s column’s called “Hold your heads up” and it argues well that American liberals should be proud of who they are and not ashamed to be identified as liberals, even though it’s a swear word in the red states.
The other stuff I pulled was a series of interesting display ads.

Well, ain’t coincidence a wonderful thing.
I’ve copied this from somewhere else, but it’s interesting. I just finished the last post and then I saw this at After Downing Street.org:

Congressman Dennis Kucinich is on the floor of the House of Representatives right now introducing 35 articles of impeachment against President George W. Bush.
Yes, 35. He’ll be reading for a while.
Watch C-Span Now!
If you don’t have cable, go to a bar and tell them to put it on C-Span 1!
Or watch at the Video/Audio tab at
Take your laptop outside and turn the volume up!
More details coming later tonight!
Action in the House coming later this week!
Good websites to watch for updates and actions:
Let Justice roll down like waters in a mighty stream . . .
There’s going to be at least one article of impeachment that interests you and perhaps even mentions you. Watch for updates.
Unfortunately it seems that he’ll get off. Most Congressional Democrats are against it and Kucinich is an outspoken critic of the war in Iraq, but a bit of an outsider in Democrat politics. Oh well, fun while it lasted.

No but the current US president is.
This is brief.
There’s a link at MSNBC.com to a straw poll where the question is:
Should President George W. Bush be impeached?
There’s only one obvious answer.
Yes, between the secret spying, the deceptions leading to war and more, there is plenty to justify putting him on trial.
So far, 5.28 pm in downtown Auckland, the vote is 89% in favour.
I like this response in the DIGG chatroom:
Where’s the “No because I think he should be hung just like Saddam was for his part in Iraq war crimes”?
I mean, if Bush can have Saddam hung for allowing his troops to torture prisoners in Iraq then why can’t the USA hang Bush for allowing his troops to do the same thing?
Roll on November.
