The Satan one is probably my favorite.

Heh, my thought was that a better headline would have been, "Greenspan expects Dems to be in power until his retirement".

He's sucking up to the new Boss.

George W. Bush calls for democratic elections supervised by neutral Electoral Observers to ensure that all votes are counted and the winning candidate gets to take office.

...oh wait, that actually happened.

Blogger pauses, thinks, decides to wait until all the facts are in before offering an opinion on a topic he knows only from a half-page article in a USA Today he read three weeks ago.

Drug Lords form PACS, contribute to campaigns and lobby Congress to decriminalize pot.

Rep's Murtha, Jefferson, Lewis and Doolittle join forces, form watchdog group, to fight corruption in DC.

I think Sherman deserves to be in better company.

Committing war-crimes against slave-owners gives you a free pass on genocide against Native Americans, I'm guessing.

George Wallace apologizes to freedom riders, calls segregation wrong.

Churchill apologizes for British colonialism in India.


"George Wallace apologizes to freedom riders, calls segregation wrong."

'Cept, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Wallace#Change_of_views>he did, you know.

apologizes

But, but I don't see any apology forthcoming from Greenspan, or acknowledgement of his role in the Fall.

OT: DC Circuit appeals court reverses ruling freeing the Uighurs in Guantanamo, says only the executive branch has the power to settle them in U.S., and that as long as govt is making good-faith diplomatic efforts to settle them no court can order release.

WTF??! These men have been told since 2004 that they were "free"!

Interesting, sickening precedent: treating people the U.S. government illegally took and held without any process for seven years as "immigrants".

These men have done nothing. The Uighurs are a directly analogue of the Tibetans, with the difference that they're Muslim, not Buddhists, and that therefore Chinese repression more readily produced armed resistance. There are Uighur communities in the U.S. prepared to welcome and integrate these prisoners; demand that President Obama allow the men to join them: 202-456-1111.

Reparations are in order, as well, but the urgent human need is to get more than 200 men out of the hell we've kept them in.

While googling for more on this story, I ran into a headline that qualifies for this post:

Conservatives Call on Bush to Free Uighurs

Following the link, however, reveals that the conservatives are the old-fashioned rule-of-law types who have, through an unlikely alliance with left-wing human-rights lawyers, stood up for the right thing to do against imperial-power Republicans and craven Democrats.

More OT:

Sorry, left off url for 'Conservatives Call on Bush to Free Uighurs'.

While we're at it:

Washington Post editorial: Free the Uighurs

ACLU background page: Free the Uighurs (Step One (!) of the '100 Days' campaign)

Other signs of the times:

- Not much to talk about today, bloggers across the political spectrum agree; the authorities have everything under control, and they are the experts, not us, so who are we to give them advice?

- Eric Martin denounces use of obscure song lyrics in blog post titles, says "nobody cares about music anyway"

john bolten: UN a force for good in world. US should pay up all overdue funding.

GHWB & GWB: prescott bush was a nazi sympathizer who did treasonous crimes against the US.

dick cheney/henry kissinger: can't we all just get along?

republican party: complex issues have many possible solutions, and must be studied in nuanced ways.

bill frist: terry shiavo was obviously brain dead, and so am i.

"But, but I don't see any apology forthcoming from Greenspan, or acknowledgement of his role in the Fall."

He's probably waiting to the lead of Obama and the Democratic Congressional leadership on that, just to avoid embarassing them.

He's probably waiting to the lead of Obama and the Democratic Congressional leadership on that, just to avoid embarassing them.

Good point there Brett. Why if Obama hadn't spent the entire general election campaign defending his 1999 vote in the Senate to repeal Glass-Steagall, he might have won the election in a landslide (and consequently enjoy high approval ratings), rather than narrowly squeaking out a disputed victory using last minute votes in IL engineered by Rod Blagojevich, just like JFK in 1960.

If only we lived in that world, rather than this one.

The size of Obama's victory, and the margin of the Democratic majority in Congress, has precisely no bearing on whether they share any conplicity, (They share lots of it.) for the present economic situation. It merely highlights the irony of their being catapulted into power in no small part due to a crisis they contributed to the creation of.
