Tuesday Morning News Roundup

  • It looks as if Republicans are sitting around and holding their breath claiming that they’ve made enough “concessions” in the debt ceiling talks. I’m not sure they’ve made any concessions to be honest. Eugene Robinson has more. More on the debt ceiling craziness here, here and here.
  • Will Congress investigate Rupert Murdoch and News Corporation over their phone hacking scandal? It seems to me that if they were bold enough to try something like this in the UK, we ought to wonder what would stop them for trying something like this here?
  • Corruption, deceit and assassination seem to rule the day in Afghanistan. We need to get out of there.
  • Wages remain stagnant, yet we are working harder and longer.
  • The fiery congressman from Florida Alan Grayson is running for reelection. This is good news for progressives.
  • The stupid analogy of the day award goes to Senator Mitch McConnell who stated that the Casey Anthony trial proves that civilian courts cannot try terrorists. What? I thought the civilian courts have already tried and convicted multiple terrorists.
  • I’m not a New York Yankees fan. I’ve watched the New York Yankees pummel the Texas Rangers for decades. I still admire Derek Jeter. He’s been able to get it done for years. Over the weekend, he hit his 3000th hit. Congratulations, Derek. This is a huge accomplishment.
  • I’m not sure how conservatives can look at this graph and still insist on tax cuts for the rich.

  • American television, in my opinion, has been abysmal for years. We have seemingly thousands of channels with garbage on each one. One of the great surprises over the last couple years has been a series called Burn Notice. Check it out.

Geiger's Thoughts on Bush and Memorial Day

I try not to use the word hate. I try not to let hate into my soul, but sometimes it is just unavoidable. For instance, there was an attending physician from my residency who made my life miserable for no particular reason except that he could. It got so bad that if he was walking across the street and I was driving my car… I just don’t know if he would make it. In a similar light, Bob Geiger, who stopped writing his blog about six months ago, posted something on the Huffington Post. He talks about his hatred, Bush, and the military in which he served.


From Huffington Post:

Dead Troops Remembered By President Who Had Them Killed

Yes, that’s a harsh headline for this piece.

But I’ll ask you to forgive me because, as a Veteran, there isn’t a day on the calendar that causes my hatred — and I do indeed mean hatred — of George W. Bush to bubble over the top more than Memorial Day.

“On Memorial Day, we honor the heroes who have laid down their lives in the cause of freedom, resolve that they will forever be remembered by a grateful Nation, and pray that our country may always prove worthy of the sacrifices they have made,” reads Bush’s official Memorial Day proclamation, issued by the White House on Thursday.

The Chickenhawk-in Chief says a lot of things that make this Vet’s blood boil but stuff like saying that he prays “…that our country may always prove worthy of the sacrifices they have made” is almost vomit inducing.

This statement comes from the same man who himself began dishonoring the sacrifices of all Veterans in such huge ways in March of 2003, when he invaded Iraq behind a veil of lies and deceit and started spilling barrels of military and civilian blood to start a war with a country that posed no threat whatsoever to our national security. These stirring words of remembrance come from an administration that began with a stolen election in 2000, which goes entirely against what I was taught way back when I was in the U.S. Navy, which was that part of the “way of life” we were protecting was symbolized by the ability of all of our citizens to have their votes counted.

Truth or Consequences – Mukasey style

When you look back over the last 7 or so years, it is amazing the amount of lying and deceit that has shoveled out for the American people to digest. The latest comes from Michael Mukasey, who while trying to defend amnesty for the telecoms, tells a tale that sounds like we learned about a pre-9/11 conversation that should have been tapped but was not. This conversation was from a terrorist haven to a 9/11 hijacker. Here’s what Michael Mukasey said, “We knew that there has been a call from someplace that was known to be a safe house in Afghanistan and we knew that it came to the United States. We didn’t know precisely where it went.” What does this mean? It was no where in the 9/11 commission report.

I know that Glenn Greenwald will have more on this as soon as it is available. He has been on FISA matters for over 2 years.
