    Aren't you people listening?

    Why do so many Americans still support Bush on Iraq? People, THERE
    WERE NO WMD. David Kay, Bush's top weapons inspector said so in
    January. Charles Duelfer, chief of CIA's weapons hunters, just issued
    definitive 1,000-page report that says Saddam had no stockpile of WMD
    for entire decade leading up to Bush W's attack.

    9/11 Commission, which Bush selected, found no "collaborative
    relationship" between Al Qaeda and Saddam.

    Bush's Secretary of State Colin Powell admitted his UN testimony on
    Iraq's nuclear capability was "inaccurate and wrong, and in some cases
    deliberately misleading."

  2. Apologies for contributing to the OT thread. But sometimes I can't resist.
    In the same way as the right wing need to understand the causes of
    terrorism, those of us on the left of the equation (which includes the
    centre ground in these extreme days) need to understand that domestic
    support for Bush isn't about Iraq. It's about a more deep seated, cultural
    need to cling to the familiar in difficult times.

    When kids go through trauma they look to their parents for solidity and
    support. When adults suffer trauma -- and the 911 wake-up call was
    undeniably *very* traumatic for such a self confident and self centred
    culture -- they often turn to reassuring myths. Bush's combination of
    fictional "man next door" image and Born Again religious ticket (equally
    fictional IMO whether you believe in a God or not) is just what the
    psychologist ordered.

    Bush's potential victory will have nothing to do with politics, and
    everything to do with fear. Sadly that's understandable, if not exactly

  6. Aren't you people paying attention! Imagine 4 more years of photographs of
    Monkeyboy smirking about how many people he killed in the past week! Who
    needs it! While Kerry isn't much of an improvement....Edwards is downright
    Gene Palmiter, Oct 11, 2004
  7. That makes sense to me, and it is photo related! Maybe if we add in the
    need to modify some of the Bush photo to make them more presentable it might
    even fit in digital as well. What software might be best?

    This is a gab group. What percentage of posts would you estimate are
    on topic?

  9. many of us were raised before there was POLITICALLY CORRECT, ie, we feared and
    hated COMMUNISTs and Communism which is an extreme form of SOCIALISM.
    While Bush is probably the most liberal republican we have ever had in office,
    he never fired all the Clinton appointees as Clinton did when he came into
    office and has been listening to their bad advice from day 1.

    Kerry is so much farther to the left than the most liberal of all senators
    (Kennedy) that he might as well be a Commie. Clinton who was almost impeached,
    was a traitor in his sale of the necessary guidance system to Korea to get an
    ICBM to the USA. Forget about all of his financial election support from other
    Communist nations.

    Bush is simply the lesser of two evils. We need some election day changes to
    the point that there will be a total news black out of an election including
    exit polls and so on for 24 hours or until all votes have been counted or
    recounted. this way the Kalifornios will not be hearing the exit polls from teh
    East Coast before the West Coast polls close.

    anyway, yeah... we will vote for Bush or against Communism until we can get a
    third party running. right now, it is simply voting for flavors of Socialism.
    and this was supposedly going to be a Republic. finally, I will say, I fully
    expect a revolution within the next 5 or 10 yrs.

  12. Photoshop can easily erase Shrub from a landscape photograph. To erase him
    from the political landcape will take the efforts of 60% of the vote....60%
    to make sure that stealing the election again is impossible. And we need a
    majority in congress so that we can Photoshop out the Supreme Court for
    meddling in a political coup. Then the people of the US need to file a class
    action suit against the Republican Party for denying them the Civil Right of
    voting for their President. That will take all the party's assets just as
    suits took the assets of the KKK....a related political party!

    Simple. Republicans support republican candidates and Democrats support
    democrat candidates. This is a all regardless to how stupid and incompetent
    the candidate is or how much he has lied. This is why non Republicans and
    democrat candidates don't stand a chance. They just don't have enough
    supports and the people for the two main parties won't vote outside of their
    party. Think of it as inbreeding.

  15. Poor liberals. It wouldn't surprise me if you actually do "listen" and hear
    voices from a newsgroup devoted to digital photography. Now, get back on
    your meds and
    find a newsgroup more in keeping with your condition...maybe there's one
    called that is devoted entirely to people like you. If you
    "listen" carefully, you may even be capable of comprehending the message.

  17. a known CPUSA member. and founder of the ADA or Americans for Democratic Action,
    a known CPUSA Front organization.

    That was a good choice, had to laugh at your coming back at me with a quote from
    a registered, card carrying American Communist.

    everyone might find this interesting. I was in Intelligence during the 60s-80s
    and this is pretty damned factual.

  19. Aren't YOU listening?? We like to talk about photography not about your
    political views. I am sure that nothing you say here is going to change
    anyone's mind about the election. So, Please BUTT OUT!

    Of course.
    Most people just happen to recall that WMDs were not the sole reason
    to go to war.

    You also seem to have missed the memo that essentially all foreign intel
    agencies thought that the evidence was strong that Saddam had them or
    was about to get them (again).

    You *did* miss the memo that he was playing the UN (including Kofi's son)
    like a fiddle for cash, not to mention several major nation's worth
    buyers for his oil.

    Too bad about the Iraqi people, who weren't getting the medicines and
    food that the oil money was supposed to be buying.
