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?

Bush Cutting Both Medicade AND Medicare, Will Hit Hospitals And Clinics Hard


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Now that reporters can read the fine print on the recently passed Bush budget plus his latest statements, it is obvious the plan to pay for our many wars and adventures and tax cuts is to nuke healthcare and drive so many hospitals and clinics into bankruptcy, we will have very little access to healthcare. Way to go, red America. We will all be "New Orleans".

From the New York Times:
In his budget next week, President Bush will propose substantial savings in Medicare, stepping up his efforts to rein in the growing costs of social insurance programs, administration officials and health care lobbyists said Friday.

For the first time since taking office five years ago, they said, Mr. Bush will try to reduce projected Medicare payments to hospitals and other health care providers by billions of dollars over the next five years. In addition, they said, Mr. Bush intends to seek further increases in Medicare premiums for high-income people, beyond those already scheduled to take effect next year.
Many liberal pundits warned that if the government starts charging the better off elderly fees, this would be spread downwards relentlessly and in typical camel nose fashion, so it is happening.

One reason why healthcare is such a mess today is because of union successes at extending health care at work and to bridge the gap, liberals in Congress and LBJ created a seperate health care system for the elderly and then the poor. This made right wingers furious and they couldn't wait to undo both the union health care and the LBJ Medicare/Medicaid system.

What these clowns are offering us is very stark: DEATH. And this shouldn't surprise anyone, Bush worships "the Executioner that is death, the devil that is death and death that is death" at his favorite Crypt at Yale, the well-named "Skull and Bones." He definitely practices what he preaches.

So far, Americans are being told, we can have infinite guns and infinite butter only now, they are removing the butter dish and replacing it with a slice of pig fat.
Despite the failure of his plan to overhaul Social Security last year, Mr. Bush has signaled that he intends to curb rapid increases in federal spending linked to the aging of the population. "The retirement of the baby boom generation will put unprecedented strains on the federal government," Mr. Bush said in his State of the Union address on Tuesday.
Boomer Baby Bubble Boy Bush can't wait to kill his classmates, doesn't he? He hates us. He hates all of us, especially the Christians who worship him. He can't wait to crush them, in particular. Ever see him weep over the war dead? He can barely contain his glee just like on 9/11, laughing in that classroom. Or during hurricane Katrina, yucking it up, absolutely overjoyed.

His handlers try to keep this out of the news and the news owners, in return for favors, don't replay over and over again, him reading "My Pet Goat" while on a split screen secretaries fall, screaming, from the burning WTC! Dean, they had to destroy, which is why they played "the scream" over and over. Well, we will all be screaming, soon enough, and there won't be any media to record it, they will be too busy trumpetting all the victories of fundamentalist Muslim parties whereever we invade and force elections. Whoopee.
The president's 2007 budget also calls for a freeze in Medicare payments to nursing homes and home health agencies, as recommended by the commission. In addition, he proposes to reduce payments for oxygen equipment provided to Medicare beneficiaries.

This proposal is likely to touch off protests from a coalition of patients and oxygen suppliers. The coalition has been running television commercials against a powerful California congressman who has supported such changes.

In one commercial, an Air Force veteran, with an oxygen tube in his nose, asks the congressman, Representative Bill Thomas: "I was proud to fight for my country. Why are you not willing to fight for me?"
Anyone remember the brain dead lady last year and how the hokey pokies in the GOP stopped everything to pass an illegal law that was immediately struck down? And how Bush left his vacation home to sign it, in DC, to show how he and his "Devil is death" buddies really want to keep us alive?

Cut the oxygen! Imagine being told, "Sorry, bud, you got to breathe on yer own"?
Under the law, the income thresholds are increased each year to reflect inflation. Mr. Bush's proposal would eliminate these adjustments, so that more people would have to pay the higher premiums each year.
Already, this year, the premium hike for Medicare was greater than the "rate of inflation" hikes and so the elderly got exactly $0 despite raging inflation especially for essencials.

Now, these sneaky pick pockets are de-indexing inflation so they can drive us all, via reducing the value of the currency to balance our foreign purchases, into penury.

Meanwhile, Bush is touting totally insane programs to fix our economy. From the Washington Post:
Bush has proposed doubling over 10 years the federal aid to basic research programs in the physical sciences and engineering at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the Energy Department's Office of Science the and National Science Foundation. The first year would cost $910 million; the 10-year commitment would be $50 billion.

"The increased funding I have proposed will support America's creative minds as they explore promising areas, such as nanotechnology, supercomputing, and alternative energy sources," Bush said.

A second part of Bush's proposal calls for spending $4.6 billion to back tax credits U.S. companies get for investing in research and development projects. The tax credit expired on Dec. 31, and the House and Senate are working on bills to extend it for one year. Bush wants to make it permanent.
Even as the ruling elite warn us to never ever protect our borders, they lie to us about how to fix things so we can survive. We are supposed to create more and newer technologies! Whoopie doop. Guess what?

This won't create a single American factory job! What happened to all the other fine industries we invented or extended? The more techie they are, the swifter they fly out because no one wants to pay high techie prices! Instead, they want us to go to school, go deeply into debt and of course, Bush cut school loans for college this year, and then go out and work for pennies?

Why?

Time for geeks of America to wake up. Bush and the rulers hate you all with a passion. They want a collar around your necks and they want to herd you into small boxes and ship you to wherever they want or even off to war. They would love to see you all dead. These are guys who can't type their way out of a wedding invitation. They can barely read or write. They are really good at conspiring with each other. And they want all of you guys under their boot heels.

The rest of us, they want dead.

Witless Whitman Sued For Lying About Pollution From WTC


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Whitman, the former head of the EPA, conspired with Bush to lie about deadly air quality after 9/11. Getting people back to work and pretending everything was OK was paramount. So now, a mere three years later, many of the trusting people are now dying. This is a grave crime and both Witman and Bush should be put in prison. Arrest them all.

From Associated Press:
A federal judge blasted former Environmental Protection Agency chief Christine Todd Whitman on Thursday for reassuring New Yorkers soon after the Sept. 11 attacks that it was safe to return to their homes and offices while toxic dust was polluting the neighborhood.

U.S. District Judge Deborah A. Batts refused to grant Whitman immunity against a class-action lawsuit brought in 2004 by residents, students and workers in lower Manhattan and Brooklyn who said they were exposed to hazardous materials from the collapse of the World Trade Center.

"No reasonable person would have thought that telling thousands of people that it was safe to return to lower Manhattan, while knowing that such return could pose long-term health risks and other dire consequences, was conduct sanctioned by our laws," the judge said.

She called Whitman's actions "conscience-shocking," saying the EPA chief knew that the fall of the twin towers released tons of hazardous materials into the air.
Well, right after 9/11, I sent letters to the major media, warning them that witless Whitman was lying about air quality. I have some bonafides about construction, especially demolition.

No one printed a single letter. Phone calls to the EPA were ignored. I wrote to the FBI, to everyone, explaining that exposing people to the debrie while not wearing full asbestos rated suits was suicide! The disinigration of the towers was like a nuclear bomb: everything was literally atomized, reduced to smaller than .0001mm which is the sort of thing that lodges deep inside the lungs and into the brain! This sort of fine dust in any circumstance is bad for the lungs and if it contains all the zillions of chemicals and flameretardants and cement and even steel, plastic, human remains, everything! Just from the point of view of diseases from atomized bodies should have called for caution.

If our government was concered about citizens, they would have shut down and evacuated all of lower Manhattan but that would have closed down Wall Street and the government was anxious to get it all rolling and to pretend the attack couldn't stop America so a cynical, evil decision was made to basically shorten the lives of hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers instead.

Blood for money.

So America can pretend to be rich and all the people making this possible get 50% of their lives eliminated. If the people sent into this toxic wasteland were told, "You have only 3 to 10 years left in life if you go in here" you can bet, most would have hesitated if not run off. I would have!

The rush to clean it all up and get it out meant handling toxic wastes totally irresponsibly. When the debrie was dumped, it was done in a dusty, toxic way, too. Everyone around the dump sites are also in danger.

Whitman wants to think that she has no responsibility in all this murderous mayhem. She is dead wrong.

If she had any sympathy for the people slated to die, especially the school children of lower Manhattan who were sent into that hellhole to die so they could be used for publicity photos, "Oh, see, even the small children aren't stopped by this attack." Well, there is no money that will assauge the mothers and fathers who will see their children die during the next ten years. May Whitman rot in hell.

She could have said, "No." She could have loudly resigned and accused Bush of rushing things and warned everyone of the dangers. She could have read my urgent letters, answered my phone calls. I tried to reach these criminal clowns and they locked me out of their damn bubble.

The iron clad bubble of the Apocalypic GOP.
