A montage of Bushism’s


President George W. Bush, JRI have several projects in progress but none ready to be posted yet. So to keep you from getting bored, I post a video or a short story. I was going to stay away from politics until I saw this clip. Once I saw it, I could not resist sharing it with the readers of this site.

Remember this is the man, that the Republicans in the House and Senate have allowed to trash our liberties, our Constitution, and our laws with impunity, by abrogating their responsibility to conduct meaningful oversight of the Executive branch of our government. It’s a sad thing when or representatives abandon their responsibilities in the interest of loyalty to a political party. «Read the rest of this article»

Clarksville Online mentioned on Broadband Reports in reference to CDE’s Fibre referendum


Clarksville Department of ElectricityWe have posted several articles in reference to the CDE plan to wire every home in Clarksville with Fiber optic connections.

Clarksville will be voting in November, to authorize CDE to form a Telecommunications Authority. I encourage everyone to vote yes on the referendum.

CDE wants to build this network to enable them to read meters, turn on and off electricity for overdue customers, and real time monitoring of the local power grid all from the central office. Once installed these cables can also be used to provide cable television, on-demand video, worldwide video-conferencing, multiple community access TV channels, high speed Internet, and other services, which are not currently offered by Bellsouth or Charter Communications. «Read the rest of this article»

Learning to Let Go


Bush's Foreign Policy, Cartoon courtesy of Brian Narelle from our “wartime president” reiterated for the umpteenth time that we are not getting out of Iraq while he is president. He tells us that the result of withdrawal would be catastrophic, would result in a failed state in Iraq. Well, I have news for our fearless leader, Iraq was a failed state from the day we invaded it. It was inevitable that it would fail, given the incompetence of this administration. Aside from billions in no-bid contracts for Haliburton, our invasion of that troubled nation has done nothing for either the Iraqis or for us -aside from getting over 2,500 of our troops killed and thousands more maimed for life (and we won’t mention the tens of thousands of Iraqis killed and maimed). «Read the rest of this article»

Discrimination by so called Christians


Christian HypocritesThis story illustrates why our nation must not allow churches and religious institutions to be above the law.

The behavior by this church and its pastor is degrading to women, to true Christians, and to Americans in general.

Discrimination is always wrong! It doesn’t matter if it’s on based on race, gender, religion, sexual orientation or identification, and it should never be tolerated by any one no matter the political, social, or religious institution involved. «Read the rest of this article»


Life and Liberty for those who believe, Religion and Politics Part I.


ReligionsOver the next few weeks, I intend to discuss at length, the extent that certain individuals are going to, in order to blur the clear lines between religion and politics, and those between Church and State.

By their very nature religion and politics are strange bed fellows. In Christianity, when confronted with the issue, Jesus handled it in a simple manner: «Read the rest of this article»


What the Judge actually said regarding the NSA spying program. Why doesn’t the press care?


ConstitutionI posted the other day on the ruling by U.S. District Court Judge Anna Diggs Taylor in response to the lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union challenging the President’s so called “Terrorist Surveillance Program” (TSP). It was a story posted with little review of the judges decision. Her ruling actually raises serious issues that extend beyond that one program.

The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, self-appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny. – THE FEDERALIST NO. 47, at 301 (James Madison)

Here’s the meat of the issue. «Read the rest of this article»


NSA’s Warrantless Domestic Surveillance UNCONSTITUTIONAL!



Judge orders program to be halted!

It’s just coming out, MSNBC and the AP are reporting that U.S. District Court Judge Anna Diggs Taylor has ruled that the President’s warrantless domestic spying program is unconstitutional, and that she has ordered an immediate halt to it.

This is a serious rebuke to the Bush Administrations, and their attempt to use the State secret privilege to block an independent judicial review of the legality of this program. This is something that other judges need to take note of as well. «Read the rest of this article»


An update on the Bush Administration and the Politics of Fear


TSA airline checkpointWhen I am right, I am right! I said in my August 11 piece, that you should take these new claims of terrorist plots with a grain of salt. Since then my premise has been confirmed. Here’s some new examples.

There was a recent piece by MSNBC‘s Keith Olbermann on his Countdown show, which covered the history of using Terrorism and Terrorists by politicians especially Republican ones for Political Gain. It’s very damning and you should really go watch it, it’s also available on Crooks and Liars where I first learned about the piece! Then come back here, and read the rest of this article! «Read the rest of this article»
