Warning About Mercury In Multi-year Predator Fish


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Once again, the news that eating predator fish a lot is dangerous, makes the news. The latest story ties itself to the issue of sushi, a delicacy I happen to love. This gives the impression that sushi is bad to eat even though the mercury danger is for only tuna or similar sushi.

From Reuters:
Sushi is more popular than ever before but eating it "has become the new Russian roulette" in terms of safety, a group campaigning against mercury in fish said on Monday.

Eli Saddler of gotmercury.org, a campaign of California-based Sea Turtle Restoration Project, went to six top sushi restaurants in Los Angeles to test mercury levels in the fish they serve.

"The level of mercury in tuna these restaurants serve is so high they should be keeping this food off their lists," Saddler said. "Eating sushi has become the new Russian roulette."
Tuna steaks are other menu items. Shark meat is eaten in many forms. Why sushi in particular is being attacked is most irritating since most sushi isn't made with these particular ingredients and one can enjoy sushi without worry if it isn't these few types of fish.

I notice today's food news is being spread all over the place. I have known now for about 30 years not to eat tuna, for example, while pregnant or nursing. So this shouldn't be a big surprise. The fact that stores and eateries won't warn people about this is due to the fact that our government doesn't want to interfer with business.

The hunting of tuna will have to stop, pretty soon, due to simple overfishing. This is why I seldom eat the fish today, mercury or no. Even more so with sharks who are rapidly going extinct due to overfishing.

Here is a PBS story about mercury in fish:
In America one-in-six children born every year have been exposed to mercury levels so high that they are potentially at risk for learning disabilities and motor skill impairment and short-term memory loss. That type of mercury exposure is caused by eating certain kinds of fish, which contain high levels of the toxin from both natural and man-made sources such as emissions from coal-fired power plants One government analysis shows that 630,000 children each year are exposed to potentially unsafe mercury levels in the womb. If the government and its scientists know about the mercury problem, why do so many people continue to be poisoned?
This PBS show is a good source of information.

They report that California passed a law forcing businesses to post warnings about tuna in particular. Only this was dragged into court this year. Like the cigarette folk, these people want business. It is all very odd, this. For example, the eating of eggs dropped drastically due to health fears yet the real problem is sick chickens due to factory farms that abuse the poor birds. I have hens and they are happy birds, free to roam about, eating all sorts of interesting things, grooming each other, dust baths, perches, etc. They lay lovely eggs that are brilliantly golden, high yokes, firm whites, very healthy. But people in general are now spooked about eggs even though they happily ingest industrial waste products made with the most noxious chemical ingredients imaginable!

Even when seeking "health foods" the public blandly buys ready made junk food. "Lo Carbs!" announce cookie boxes, for example. Yech!

The PBS article correctly fingerpoints to the many coal burning plants producing electricity as chief agents of pollution. The smokestacks are very tall to disperse the poisons as far as possible which means the wind picks it up, combines it with rain and then it all falls into the rivers and seas! Great.

And we are building more of these things!

Here is an older article about the same warnings. From the CBC:
Last Updated Wed, 29 May 2002 12:17:22
OTTAWA - Health Canada has sent out a warning to consumers to limit their intake of certain types of fish because of high mercury levels in them.

The department had previously warned consumers last year about eating shark, swordfish and fresh and frozen tuna. A news release from the department says it just wants to reiterate that advice.
A huge industry in Canada is fishing and for their government to do this takes a lot of guts.

A lot of our increasing problems ultimately can be traced back to our desire to live in an anti-ecological bubble. Scientists know that predators don't eat predators. They go lower down in the food chain. Perhaps, this is one more reason why. And is probably why polar bears that eat seals who are high on the food chain are having increasing problems with their health, they are getting the double whammy here from our energy use. Global warming and pollution.

Bush Is Insane


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

The latest "interview" with Bush where he bares his sole of his shoes, shows clearly, this man is insane. He should be locked up in a secure facility (or prison).

From ABC News:
BUSH: You know, it's interesting, you said that one of the things that we love doing is to invite our buddies up from Texas. And I think about the time we had Jones, Procter and Selee [sic]. These are guys we grew up with in Midland, Texas. They are down to earth, you know, they have no agenda, except being with their friends Laura and George.

VARGAS: They call you George?

BUSH: No, they call me Mr. President.

VARGAS: I was going to say…

BUSH: They probably don't want to call me Mr. President, but they do call me Mr. President. And we sit up there in the White House. First of all, it's a great joy to see their joy about being here. It's a fantastic experience for people to be able to come here.

VARGAS: To come and visit.

BUSH: Yeah.

VARGAS: That's great

BUSH: They're not jaded. The other thing is that they remind us of what's important in life. And that we're not here in this office — really pretty brief period of time. And yet your friendships which became the foundation of your life last forever. And I'm real pleased that our buddies who were friends before government will be friends after government. No matter what their status is in life. And it's really one of the neat things to do, to welcome people here. Have them come up from West Texas and kind of walk around in their accents and go, "Man, this is something else!"

VARGAS: [With twang] This is great!

BUSH: "This is unbelievable Bush! We can't believe we're here nor can we believe you're here."
Aside from his deteriorating ability to speak English, the astonishing thought processes here are frightening. His laughing about his "down to earth" buddies being totally intimidated by him and despite their desire to be down to earth buddies, they are forced to call him "Mr. President" yet when he makes fun of them being awed by the White House as if this clown didn't haunt the White House during the years his father run the joint!----acting as if this were something new----the fact is, when he pretends to be them, he calls himself, "Bush".

Now, I know no close friends at any time in my life that I or they referred to themselves or myself by the formal last name. Never. Indeed, when we do this, it is to insult each other when someone screws up.

Also, the expressions of disbelief coming from people who are supposed to be his friends is very odd indeed considering that gramps Bush was a Senator and daddy Bush was a Vice President then President, for his comfortable buddies who brook no formality to be astonished by all this is very bizarre. Of course, they aren't around to dispute this but it is all around horrifying.

Why? Because the stilted language, the stilted images of them as if they are shadows moving in front of Bush's nonseeing eyes.

This guy who spent only a short while in Texas in his youth before being shipped to a top private Academy in the Northeast, can't help but sneer at his former playmates who blew up frogs with him during his misspent youth. "It is a great joy to see their joy" is a psychopath talking. Namely, he loves to rub his status in the face of his earliest friends. I am certain they were overjoyed to be invited to the White House and Bush clearly understands they had no business with him, thus the joy in looking down his nose at them. Unlike moneymen who he has to carefully cultivate and pleasure.

There are no pictures of him kissing his childhood friends, unlike the Saudis, for example.

The entire interview is full of misappropriated nouns and verbs, running amock, seeking shelter.
VARGAS: One of the great perks living here.

BUSH: That and having a gym above your bedroom.

VARGAS: Now that's a perk! Do you work out everyday?

BUSH: I do. Six days a week.
The inabilty to understand plain English is glaring here. He works out "everyday" six days a week? What? Of course, he couldn't say, "No, I do it only six days a week, not Sundays" for example though I seriously doubt he spares Sunday. The fact that he has to ride his bike everywhere and work out upstairs, too, nearly every day is a sign of mental distress. He isn't an athlete, he supposedly has pressing work to do, yet he focuses nearly all his remaining brain cells on mindless churning work outs.

Serioiusly, this might be a symptom of his brain dying. When a shark is brain dead, it circles in the water instead of going in a straight line. This is how I caught one once with my bare hands. I knew it was dying.

Animals suffering from rabies or more, deer or cows suffering from MCD walk in circles without resting. When I see animals doing this, this is a sign their brains are expiring.

Another aspect of this bubble interview was the extended part about his girls. Both of them have been caught, drinking while underage, using false IDs, using Secret Service agents to haul them from bar to bar and keep them from being arrested. Neither the interviewer nor Bush mention these sorts of things. The media is still protecting him even when discussing his strange meeting with Cheney where Bush shows great consideration for Cheney's FEELINGS after that guy stupidly shot a money man for the GOP. He doesn't mention any concern for the well being or feelings of the victim, only relief there was no death to cover up.

Indeed, the fact that these same media people parse and pinch anything anyone on the liberal side of politics say, like whenever Dean opens his mouth, the hostile reception in contrast to the careful padding of Bush's ego is probably why he can imagine no one is horrified by his obvious increasing brain damage.

Just like the ports business. First, he said he was determined to give our ports to his family friends in the United Arab Emerites then he claimed he had no idea it was happening until the news hit him then he reverted and said it was a good idea. Either he is insane or he spins like a weathercock in a hurricane. He also claims in this interview that he still has a mandate to spend even though his polls have collapsed. This is way out of touch with reality, isn't it?

I say, he is insane. This is why he couldn't process the information about the hurricane destroying New Orleans though this doesn't explain the brain damage of Chertoff who didn't know anything for days and days, either.

Aaaaaa. Bush isn't insane. He is a criminal. And so is Chertoff. And Rumsfeld. Arrest them all or lock them in an insane asylum with Nurse Ratchet.

Green Tea Makes Smarty Pants Elderly, Hahaha


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Yet another study claiming drinking green tea makes one witty, wise, brilliant, all powerful, etc. Of course. A zillion great grannies knew this for many years. Including mine.

From Reuters:
People who regularly drink green tea may have a lesser risk of mental decline as they grow older, researchers have found.

Their study, of more than 1,000 Japanese adults in their 70s and beyond, found that the more green tea men and women drank, the lower their odds of having cognitive impairment.

The findings build on evidence from lab experiments showing that certain compounds in green tea may protect brain cells from the damaging processes that mark conditions like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.
The drinking of green tea is dropping in Asia as the youth go off the reservation and drink sugar water filled with chemicals that rot your teeth, your stomach and make one fat and starts diabetes! Well, maybe this is our plan for world conquest, lure people into eating and drinking dreck only it is backfiring since it is killing us, too!

Knew there was a flaw in this plan.

My great godmother lived to be over 100 years old and she drank only green tea and she was tremendously smart, wrote stuff about birds, did the first Condor study way, way back when she had to ride a horse out to the desert to observe them, she was born at the beginning of the Civil War, no less! I loved drinking tea with her for she drank with the birds who would fly around and land on the table outside in Pasadena, and she would pour them drinks and they would eat sunflower seeds and pick at the little cakes she set out, it was like being in a fairy tale. All the birds had names and they would perch on her fingers or the edge of her tea cup.

She also had a wooden woodpecker on her back door and if you pulled the string, it would knock so you can guess, I loved doing this but being a small girl, she would only laugh.

I am not surprised she was one of the smartest people around. She drank lots of green tea which I do, to this day, myself, which is why I can blog all the time and act like a smarty pants, talking about bizarre things and making fun of Bush who drinks diet drink dreck which is like drinking the distillation of a sewage plant with some coloring. Gah.

Do have a sconce with your tea, hmm? One lump of sugar or two?

Bet You Didn't Know They Treat Meat With Carbon Monoxide To Fool You


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

I am mostly vegetarian but family members still insist on eating cows so this is interesting news for them: the FDA allows butchers in big stores to treat meat with the toxin, carbon monoxide, so the meat won't oxygenate and thus turn brown, get slimey or smell if it is going bad. Even as microbes take up residence! Yuck.

From Consumer Affairs:
A Michigan company has filed a petition asking the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to stop the use of carbon monoxide in supermarket meat.

The use of carbon monoxide deceives consumers and creates an unnecessary risk of food poisoning by enabling meat and ground beef to remain fresh-looking beyond the point at which typical color changes would indicate ageing or bacterial spoilage, according to Kalsec, Inc. of Kalamazoo, Michigan, a privately-held supplier of natural spice, herb, hop, and vegetable extracts for use in food, beverage, and pharmaceutical applications.
This is really disgusting. The meat is going rotten like the State of Denmark in Hamlet and you can't smell or see it! Great. Fake fresh meat.

When I used to eat meat, I would take the subway home and at the 7th Ave exit, hike up to the local butcher. He would cut off the parts of the cow carcass right there on the spot and then wrap it in crisp brown paper and then I cooked it up that same hour at home, down on Prospect Place.

In my village in upstate NY, I used to visit a retired butcher, Fred, who did the same but now he is super retired and now gone so I don't eat any red meat anymore.

No one wants to buy slimey, smelly, brown meat that has been put in a plastic tray and covered with plastic. So, to make a profit, the big supermarkets simply poison the meat and sell garbage, palming it off as fresh. Most if not all states allow no dating of meat cuts. So it is totally "buyer beware". People use their judgement only they aren't told the game is rigged.

Gack.

Time for a zuchini.

Witless Whittington Wants Us to Weep For CHENEY! Amazing.


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Look, if all the lobbyists and lawyers working with Cheney want him to shoot them then all I can say is, pull that trigger! The sight of the nearly deceased money bag man excusing the obvious psychopath, Cheney, is hilarious as well as disgusting. Meanwhile, in Wyoming, Real Fake Manly Men cheer this near killer and think this is all so great fun. If only.

From the NYT:
Declaring that "accidents do and will happen," the 78-year-old man who was shot by Vice President Dick Cheney at a weekend quail hunt emerged from the hospital here Friday looking tanned, cheery, robust and speckled with bruises.

Addressing the Wyoming State Legislature today, Dick Cheney said he was thankful Harry M. Whittington was "on the mend and doing very well."

The patient, Harry M. Whittington, an Austin lawyer and well-known figure in the state's Republican Party, thanked his doctors, praised the news media and expressed sorrow that the whole incident had become such a political flashpoint for the vice president.
Excuse me, guys. I happen to have eyeballs attached to my brains and this guy looks as cheerful as a corpse on Halloween. His face, peppered with shot, one of them nearly took out his fool eye!, shades of "A Christmas Story" where the boy is warned, his pop gun might put out his eye.

Look, lying is jolly fun except when murderers and monsters do it. This is so much like the Saddam boys having a laugh riot, shooting up their friends and neighbors before we shot them up, in turn.

We are turning more and more into Iraq each day, it is ridiculous. Aside from giving Laura a green light to kill ex-boyfriends and then actively covering this up and then pretending she is some sort of delicate flower instead of a cold blooded killer who has no shame, all these psychopaths running America have no shame, do they?
The vice president made brief mention of the incident again on Friday while addressing the Wyoming Legislature in Cheyenne. After taking the rostrum before a standing, cheering crowd of lawmakers and guests, Mr. Cheney said the warm greeting was welcome, especially, he added, "when you've had a very long week."
I will never, ever set foot in that state again. The men there are obviously either brain dead or should be.

How dare they cheer this idiot after he broke all the rules of hunting? Never, never, never is "behind a hunter" "in the line of fire." The line of fire isn't any direction one wishes to shoot! I have hunted for years. I never turn around to shoot. If I am walking, it is only to shoot things in front, when sitting, one shoots only in the direction one is sitting. If one hears a noise behind, one has to change postion and then study the forest carefully.

Cheney was spinning around, drunk, blasting away merrily at chest level.

What a moron. Hunting birds. Gads. Are all the men in Wyoming all Yosemite Simpletons? Is this how they hunt? Gads. Pathetic.

Aside from all the lies Whittington and Cheney and their paramours told, one wonders about the beer stories that shift and change hourly, the tale about how Wittless Whittington and Elmer "Fuddy" Cheney ended up in a shoot out morphs and warps with each telling. The main thing is, it is now OK to shoot lobbyists.

So, how much does it cost to buy a lobbyist hunting license? Will it be for only Texas and Wyoming or can one apply for one in DC, the game preserve with the largest flocks? Maybe this is how we will get campaign reform. As Mao liked to say, "Power grows out of the barrel of a double barreled shotgun."

EPA Wants to Eliminate Many Pollution Reports


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

The EPA lied about air pollution in Manhattan after 9/11 and now they want to lie about pollution in general. Like NASA, they are not going to monitor the health of Planet Earth where we live and breathe. Silence is literally golden here as lobbyists win yet another corrupt victory.

From the Albany Times Union:
The federal Environmental Protection Agency last month proposed a big change in how companies report pollution data. If the Bush administration gets its way, companies will tell the public a lot less about pollution by reporting less often on fewer chemicals.

In the Capital Region, 16 facilities would no longer have to report anything to the EPA about the toxic substances they emit, according to analysis from OMB Watch, a Washington D.C.-based open government group.

Environmentalists and elected officials, including Attorney General Eliot Spitzer, are urging the feds to back off. They say the TRI has helped communities and researchers investigate threats to local health and safety while encouraging companies to cut pollution.
Again and again, the secrecy, the refusal to collect data, the childish belief that if you can't see something, it can't hurt you, the cultivated ignorance or lying about effects: business as usual in DC as the lobbyists wreck their will upon us all, twisting and changing rules and regulations, making the world a sicker, weaker, more dangerous place.

From tiny hop toads to horses, birds to fishes, squirrels to humans, we all suffer when poisonous chemicals are discharged into the air, the water and the soil. Many of these are heavy metals like lead or mercury. Fatal to all of us, the higher up the food chain, the worse the damage. Humans live at the tippy top of the food chain so we have to be worried about even slight traces of many fatal chemicals in our environment. Worse, we live a long time if we aren't poisoned and so we can accumulate much more stuff in our own bodies. So the need for a protected environment is a blessing to all of us as well as other living things.
Congress passed the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act in 1987, in the wake of the release of the deadly chemical methyl isocyanate in Bhopal, India, which killed nearly 3,000 people.
The TRI data, available at http://www.epa.gov/triexplorer, is heavily used by researchers, community groups, journalists and even state and local officials. The state Department of Environmental Conservation on Tuesday urged the EPA to maintain the current system.

"The DEC believes that changing the reporting requirements under TRI undermines its effectiveness as a tool for trend analysis, making it less useful for the public," the department said in a written statement.
I am glad my state wants to keep these regulations. Pataki worked hard to help install Bush as our dictator. He and Sweeney even went down to Florida to riot or fight the vote counting in 2000. This is how we are paid back.

We are treated like Cheney's hunting partner. Blam.

Scientists Wonder About Possible Connection of High Education And Alzheimer's Disease


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Back when people were either worked to death or died of diseases long before they could reach even middle age, much less, great age, Alzheimers was a very rare condition. Today, it is quite common and many studies have tried to understand how it works and why it happens. We all fear it greatly and for good reason.

From the BBC:
Alzheimer's disease progresses more rapidly in highly educated people, research suggests.
It is thought high levels of education may ward off Alzheimer's by helping the brain better tolerate damaging changes.

But the latest study, involving 312 Alzheimer's patients, suggests once accumulated damage reaches a critical level, decline is relatively swift.
I dropped out of highschool to go the college when 16 but then had to drop out of that when I had my first child, needed to earn hard cash. So maybe I will outwit everyone on "Jeopardy" when I am 100 years old, take that, ya intellectual whippersnappers!

Alas, mere thinking aggravates the condition so I suppose I should stop blogging and stop blabbing and zone out. Time to smoke a lot of pot. Ommmmm.
This holds that highly educated people either have a greater number of nerve connections in their brains, or the nerve connections that they have are more efficient.

Therefore, when the damaging changes associated with Alzheimer's - such as the deposition of toxic protein clumps - start to take place, educated people are better placed to resist their effect at first.

However, the subsequent impact is likely to be greater than it would be in less educated brains, because of the higher levels of accumulated damage.
Maybe it is merely, smart people look a lot stupider when sick with Alzheimers but normally stupid people, it is a moot point? I mean, how much lower can Bush's IQ fall? Can it fall further? And Reagan?

I thought he was a puppet from day one so when the puppet had some difficulties, only a smarty pants like myself could see the obvious?

Alzheimers ravages people I love and hold dear. One of the saddest elements of this disease is, no one wants to have it, so in order to hold it at bay, they pretend nothing is happening and then they are puzzled when everyone looks at them funny. One response I have noticed is, many Alzheimer patients don't want their own families anywhere around them. This is because it is obvious one is doing really poorly whereas, with total strangers, it doesn't matter if one says, "Who are you?" So they have a tendency to seek out strangers for company since this also means, the strangers won't refer to things one can't remember anymore which is why so many Alzheimers patients tend to wander off, not because they forgot where they were going, they actively slip out of the house as silently as possible, to go out where everyone will be friendly in a vague sort of way and when one asks, "What time is it?" they won't say, "I told you ten minutes ago."

The more intelligent the patient was, the more frustrating this brain malfunction is and the harder they struggle and the worse it gets on every level. Geniuses are in very dire straights if they get this disease.

This is one reason why very few elderly are any good for getting information about the deep past. Either they are living as if they are there and are puzzled as to why you inquire about things that are too obvious, or they can't remember any details at all except maybe a sketchy one or two stray memories.

Since all humans deal with unhappy memories by deep sixing them, the brain is very efficient at deprogramming itself and this action has a downside, namely, it erases everything in the end. I know that even stupid, small mistakes irk me no end and embarrass me beyond words, faux pas are full irritants. The littlest mischance can annoy the innermost parts of the memory system and shaking it off is difficult, actually easy for most people.

This sensibility is a gold mine for novelists.

I pour out words in huge volume but my misspellings haunt me. Grammatical errors abound and annoy. Grinding teeth over syntax. The only reason I don't have writer's block is because in the end, I shrug it off. If someone doesn't like me or my babblings, fine. They can go to another place and hang out.

The main thing is, you can't outwit or outthink Alzheimers. You have to live with it, alas. This is one disease I pray they find some solution for aside from locking oneself in an ashram and chanting everyday which is, I assure you, pleasant. Actually.

Hmm. A solution shows itself. You do have to rise before dawn but I am used to that. Ommmm.

Hunting Information For Everyone--How Not To Shoot Your Friends and Neighbors


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

I notice the media and numbnuts are trying to fake us out over the Cheney shooting. I have hunted/shot stuff all my life. Now a vegetarian, but seriously. What Cheney did was unforgivable as well as stupid. The diagram above illustrates how one hunts upland fowl.

You do it in pairs. If there are more hunters, you start at a starting point and everyone goes in an ever-increasing semi-circle, the "fan outwards" move so at no point, one is moving into the line of fire. Note the red zone in my diagram. You never ever, no, not ever, shoot behind. Period. Always forwards. If any of the blessed little birdies fly past you or into you, they get to be "home free" and you move forwards, this isn't like little boys chasing fireflies. This is serious business.

I don't know if these dumb clowns butchering helpless little birds had any dogs with them. Old Yeller would have bitten Cheney if he shot him in the rump. You don't shoot little quail just as they rise up. The shot Cheney fired was barely chest-high. All skeet shooters know, you don't shoot the clay pigeon until it is quite aloft.

My husband, who was a good skeet shooter with his university and one day, a newbie wanted to shoot the birds so he fired directly into the "Low house" and blew up all the clay pigeons. This was very upsetting not to mention crummy as well as messy.

This is what Cheney is. A bozo who can't wait to pull and rushes it all and wrecks everything. Shooting little birds on the ground is like fishing with dynamite. Real class, dude. How can Texans look up to this idiot? Seriously. He shoots like a girly-girl. "Oooh! I just have to do it now!". Well, real hunters like to show their skill which is why we all practice hard. I would shoot 300 arrows a day whenever I was limbering up for some 100 yd longbow competition. None of this "spray everything in sight and hope it sticks" kind of garbage.

Aside from the sort of personality that has to do this to domestic quail that have no sense of where they are, no hidden places they can run to, are not a flock but a disjointed group that is clueless of where to fly. Tracking and flushing wild birds is an art for they are all, turkeys or quail, wary and suspicious. Long before you arrive, they are looking for you. I used to be, when young, a great turkey caller.

I know all sorts of calls especially the 'I am a lovesick hen who is lost, oh please save me!" call which is a plaintive, "Whoop whoop wheep" cry. You have to put your heart into it. I have had wild turkeys come right up to me, looking sideways, when I do this. But then, I raised many bronze turkeys and learned from them.

Quail, on the other hand, they are such cute little birds. I make friends with them, well, my house is beloved by the mourning doves who perch on the crown of the roof and coo softly and then make a mess at the bird feeder and then the chicken hens come out and pick up all the dropped seeds.

Then there are the chickadees. They hate Cheney and plan to spy on him and scold him wherever he goes. They will put the Mark of Chickadee upon his forehead. And next time he goes out, "Chickadee dee dee DEEs" will mock him from every corner.

Time To Show What Cheney Shot Into The Heart


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

So much speculation and so little information. We took some birdshot and shot it with the camera. No, the dish didn't die and it won't run off with the spoon, either, or I will plug it.

Anyway, the shot is very small. The discharge from Cheney was pretty close to get this to penetrate not only the clothing but the skin and slipping past the rib cage and into the heart.

But then, Cheney probably though, everyone's heart is as vacuous as his and just as tiny and hard as rock. He is still sweating bullets, worried that the man might die and he get charged.

Well, he has been the chief agent in the deaths of thousands. So might as well nail him on this one, too. And to think, these are the clowns who thought Clinton should be impeached over a blow job! Well, what about a "blow them away" job? After all, Monica didn't want Bill to go to trail yet the prosecutor threatened her unless she testify to the truth rather than covering up everything!

So, where is Kenn Starr? And the rest of the GOP impeachment crew? Shouldn't they be writing up charges now?
