DWP: Driving While Poor

I recently pulled out a parking lot, and forgot to turn on my headlights immediately, but I turned them on after a couple of seconds.

Yes, I was pulled over by the cops.

They asked me to produce proof of insurance, but my fricking glove box was jammed with the drivers manual.  He didn't ticket me for not having my headlights on, but did ticket me for not having proof of insurance.  He told me if I would provide proof to the clerk of court this would be dismissed.  Failure to provide proof would result in a $385 FINE if I didn't pay this fine, I would lose my license to drive. He let me go.

Schumer is in a Neocon frontgroup.

I believe very strongly that his crusade against the netroots candidates is motivated by support for Iraq war.  I believe they are trying to replace candidates that are strongly against the Iraq war with candidates that are for it, but won't commit vocally in favor of it.  Their latest entry is Acuri in NY.  Acuri won't commit to a position on withdrawal, other than vague statements that he believes the troops should stay until Iraq is stable.   Duckworth is another stand for nothin.   Harold Ford, Schumer's mentoree, openly says he loves Bush and doesn't want a pullout until the job is done.   Please realize, Schumer is a member of a neocon front group named Foundation for Defense of Democracy. He is not all that stealth about his own beliefs, and we should stop being willfully blind to his motivation. Here is some information on Schumer's ties to this group from right web.

Iraqi Death Squads Target Gays!

I am pretty sure that ordinary Americans didn't have this in mind, when they they attempted to install a Democracy in Iraq.

Shin Bet Chief: Arafat didn't start the intifada!

Crossposted at Dameocrat Blog

This story probably won't stop the hasbara people from making the claim that "Arafat launched the last intifada," but many Israeli officials privately acknowledge "this is not true," which means unilateral disengagement and the idea that there is "no partner for peace," is also bunk. Just read the comments by former Shin Bet agent Yuval Diskin.

Flemming Rose - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "Flemming Rose" the man who published those cartoons depicting Mohammed as a suicide bomber, has some disturbing ties to campus watch, and seems to be obsessed with the "clash of civilizations".

Hey Democrats!  Now that we know Matalin is working for Cheney, please don't take campaign advise from this man!

Arianna rightly roughs up Carville!

Joe Biden: You are elitist, upatriotic and out of touch with America!

Crossposted from Dameocrat Blog

I guess Joe isn't reading the polls!

SEN. JOE BIDEN, D-Del., made some interesting comments during his Manchester stop Tuesday night. He said too many Democrats were elitist and even unpatriotic, and he blamed them for helping Republicans paint the entire party as out of touch with America.

Biden noted that some Democrats had even questioned why he wore an American flag pin on his lapel.

The senator has been refreshingly honest about his run for the Democratic nomination for President in 2008. Further honest comments like those he made Tuesday night might hurt his chances within a party lurching increasingly to the left. But the Democrats need to hear them.

The anti-American left has seriously damaged the party, and unless more high-profile Democrats take them on, theirs will continue to be the minority party in America.  

I think he made the part about the American flag pin up!

According to the latest polls Bush's approval rating is at 35%.  His favorability rating is 33%.  If the Democratic party nominates him or someone like him it is truly dead, dead dead!
