Newsweek gives America different cover story than the rest of the world

 

My wife sent me a link the other day. The link was to a story about the October 2, 2006 week of Newsweek. As truthout.org states,

Newsweek has scrubbed the cover of its United States edition for October 2, 2006. The cover of its international editions, aimed at Europe and other world regions, has maintained the original title of the story, “Losing Afghanistan.” The new cover for the United States edition features photographer Annie Leibovitz and is titled “My Life in Pictures.”

Tennessee State Democratic Party Designated Early Vote Dates 2006

 

Democratic Party LogoWith fewer than 20 days remaining until the beginning of early voting, Tennessee Democratic Party Chairman Bob Tuke would like to remind everyone of the importance of turning out voters. “The ground game is where the rubber meets the road this fall,” Tuke said. “We have to work hard, work together, and work smart to win these elections for our candidates. You are the best defense against the baseless attacks that will be leveled against our candidates.” And you don’t have to wait for the campaigns to contact your family, your friends, and the other voters in your neighborhood. «Read the rest of this article»

 

Welcome to 1984

 

Torture in AmericaShortly, with Der Fuerer’s signing of the torture bill passed this week by congress, the United States will become a fascist state in all but name. No longer will be subject to the rule of law, but rather to the caprice of a man who I judge to be amoral and immoral. Habeus corpus has been done away with. The right to to a speedy and fair trial by a jury of your peers has been done away with. The right to be apprised of the charges brought against you and to confront your accusers has been done away with. The right to legal counsel has been done away with.

Instead, the chief executive of the United States reserves to himself the right to designate whomever he wishes as an “enemy combatant”. Once so designated, the president has the right to dispose of you in any manner he sees fit. You will be “disappeared”. No one will be told where you have been take or what has been done to you. You will be held incognito so long as the president wishes. And while being held, they may use any technique they desire to extract information from you. Nor can they be held liable for their actions, this bill gives them a get out of jail free card for all such actions performed in the past, present or future. You will be unable to do ANYTHING to them or ANYTHING to get yourself out of their clutches. «Read the rest of this article»

Local art scene not a hoax!

 

Ice House CafeMiddle Tennessee is a very veristile place to be.  Universities and miliary presence bring a vast variety of people and cultures together.

It is of vital importance in this important statewide election that the media not exclude candidates and thereby hand the elections over to the campaigns with the most money.”

The League of Women voters has scheduled a debate between Democrat Harold Ford Jr. and Republican Bob Corker on October 28th in candidate Chris Lugo’s home town of Nashville.
