Why ARE the Evil Liberal Media Meat Puppets STILL shilling the war?

The article tries to address one of a series of fundamental problems that have been PAINFULLY WELL KNOWN inside of the Veteran's Community, because, well, most of this is 'tribal knowledge' that our "civilian friends" would prefer NOT to be bothered by... { again, try to remember, some of my best friends are civilians, I just am SOOOO not sure they should be dating my son or daughter.... } Then we get this piece of HORROR, COMEDY, TRAGEDY, FARCE ( select star from star )
In the eyes of five such relatives interviewed, the military health care system, which is so advanced in its treatment of lost limbs, has been scrambling to deal with an unanticipated volume of traumatic brain-injury cases that it was ill equipped to handle. Largely because of the improvised explosive devices used by insurgents in Iraq, traumatic brain injury has become a signature wound of this war, with 1,882 cases treated to date, according to the Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center.

oh that is a MOST UGLY pice of propoganda there....

blaming IED's for the rise of TBI is just PATENTLY OBSCENE and very close to IMMORAL!!!

The problem is that with the improvement in things like the Kevlar Helmet, and the kevlar ballistic vests, and the Medivac Improvements, we are able to keep more troopers alive long enough that they do not die of collateral damage, and we can Identify that they HAVE a TBI!!!

GOD!!!!! why not simply say that the rise of TBI's is based upon the Iranian Flying Saucers, and hence that we need to Invade Iran and Kzakhastan, and ....

Will FREAKING JOURNALISTS give up on trying to keep on selling the war for no good reason???

Ok, there are some NICE things that can be said about the article. It did not try to shill any "Faith Based Initiatives" about how if we put our troops in the hands of the Christianists, that their Majik Jumbo Size, Made For TV, Voodoo would make them all better. But there is this set of annoyances
In general, these caregivers said that their grievously wounded soldiers had either been written off prematurely or not given aggressive rehabilitation or options for care. From the beginning, they said, the government should have joined forces with civilian rehabilitation centers instead of trying to ramp up its limited brain-injury treatment program alone during a time of war. That way, soldiers would have had access to top-quality care at civilian institutions that were already operating at full throttle and might be closer to home.

In fact, many soldiers do have that access. But unlike Behee, many caregivers only belatedly come to understand how to negotiate the daunting military health care system

wWould this be the wrongest of times to remind americans that the Veteran's Community is getting dumped into the Medicare System, that is being DOWNGRADED, from the medical support system that was BETTER - since the VA was willing to use it's group purchasing power to deal a better deal for it's members... Unlike the Ongoing Fiasco of Medicare....

Or would that mean POLITICIZING THE ISSUE by asking the same WANKERS who want to jerk me off about supporting the President to support the Troops, and demand that they Sort out WHAT they meant by 'support the troops'....

Again, try to remember, Some of My Best Friends Are Civilians, I just do not believe that they should be getting any special privileges because they ran and hid, while others were doing the dirty work...

Today In Post-Neo-Surrealism

A site close to the hearts of the indigenous Maya people of Guatemala is to be spiritually de-contaminated after a visit by US president George Bush.

Mayan Indian priests in Guatemala have vowed to hold a cleansing ceremony following a Monday visit by US president George W. Bush to sacred ancient ruins.

Why Chronic Is NOT GOODER For Law Stuff....

This weekend I ran across the Comedy of John Yoo who was
... in the United States Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel.[1]

He contributed to the PATRIOT Act and wrote controversial memos in which he advocated the possible legality of torture and that enemy combatants could be denied protection under the Geneva Conventions.[2]

[ cf WikiEntry ]
So the fact that he has made a fast transition to doing Stand Up Doper Comedy and has a book out about how to Roll The US Constituion and Smoke It out there...

It was so cute, I read the leaf cover comedy, where he was trying to Pitch that the USofA has not declared war since the Truman Era, but that would have been such a BEEFIER BLOW if he had gone with the more useful
The USofA has not declared war since Ronald Reagan Got Divorced! What more clear and compelling reason do americans have to stop Gay HomoZeXual Marriages, as they are not only a threat to Heterosexual Marriages, but clearly impose an additonal constraint on War Presidents that war presidents should at least make the appearance of being Married-ish, when Bombing Canada, or a Canada Substitute....
Now that would have been far better when trying to pitch it to the old fan base, and why we need to keep on Toking The Constitution Until it BE GONE!!!

Now Here is one More Comedic Bit:
After he left the Department of Justice, it was revealed that Yoo authored memos defining torture and American habeas corpus obligations narrowly.[3] Protestors at Berkeley demanded, to no avail, that he renounce the memos or resign his professorship. Yoo, citing the classified nature of the matter, has declined to confirm or deny reports that he authored the position that the President had sufficient power to allow the NSA to monitor the communications of US citizens on US soil without a warrant, i.e. NSA warrantless surveillance controversy.[4]

hey kids, are you waiting for this one to roll out?
On 14th November 2006, German attorney Wolfgang Kaleck filed a complaint with the German Federal Attorney General (Generalbundesanwalt) against Yoo, along with 13 other "co-defendants" for his alleged complicity in torture and other crimes against humanity at Abu Ghraib in Iraq and Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Mr. Kaleck acted on behalf of 11 alleged victims of torture and other human rights abuses, as well as about 30 human rights activists and organizations. The co-plaintiffs to the war crimes prosecution included Adolfo Pérez Esquivel, Martín Almada, Theo van Boven, Sister Dianna Ortiz and Veterans for Peace. [1]

So, folks, read up on our friend John Yoo, and then ask yourself, Gosh, What IF america were to fall to the americans and become a land of Laws and Not Persons....

Rent A War Moves CEO and HeadQuarters Out Of Dollar Denominated Positions....

Hey Kids, what Does the Following DO for your portfolio?
U.S. oil services firm Halliburton Co. (HAL.N: Quote, Profile, Research) is moving its headquarters and chief executive to Dubai in a move that immediately sparked criticism from some U.S. politicians.

Texas-based Halliburton, which was led by Vice President Dick Cheney from 1995-2000, did not specify what, if any, tax implications the move might entail. It plans to list on a Middle East bourse once it moves to Dubai -- a booming commercial center in the Gulf. The company said it was making the moves to position itself better to gain contracts in the oil-rich Middle East.

"This is an insult to the U.S. soldiers and taxpayers who paid the tab for their no-bid contracts and endured their overcharges for all these years," said judiciary committee chairman Sen. Patrick Leahy, a Vermont Democrat.

Go Dick Go!!!

Hey Kids, isn't this even more funnier...
Anti-war lawmakers in Congress are "undermining" U.S. troops in Iraq by trying to limit President Bush's spending requests for military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, Vice President Dick Cheney said Monday.

Hitting out at lawmakers who profess to back the troops but oppose Bush's plans in Iraq, Cheney said proof of their commitment would come as they consider legislation to provide nearly $100 billion for the rest of this year's costs of the wars.

[ cf Cheney Challenges 'Anti-War' Lawmakers ]
Well, it must be wonderful to know that one's transactions are safely unwinding out of their Dollar Positions, and will be able to be in a safe haven....

Wish Dear Old Dick were willing to offer that safety to our Troops...

Especially if Dear Old Dick is still planning to Cut And Run at his earliest opportunity...

Thots Beyond The Pale

Hey kids, ever wonder what would be Far Too Far Beyond The Pale for even Faux News to make it a prime time news show??? Well how about a Tinky Winky TELETUBBIES tragedy type show called
HanoiAnnie Coulter and friends....
Now doesn't that just make you want to bomb canada, or cleveland, or culver city....

Oh My God, guess what it takes to get the Number One Google Slot to give it up for:
In February 1999, an article in Falwell's National Liberty Journal suggested that a Teletubbies character, Tinky Winky, could be a hidden homosexual symbol, because the character was purple (which the article claimed was a color symbolic of homosexuality), had an inverted triangle on his head and carried a handbag. Falwell denied any personal involvement with the original article, and made clear he never had any prior knowledge of or concern with the Teletubbies. Falwell's organization said the author of the article was simply repeating what others in the media were already saying about the nature of the character [27]. In the months following this incident, Falwell received a number of Tinky Winky plush dolls via mail, most of which he has given to his grandchildren.[citation needed]

Falwell often attributes political affiliation to the divine, claiming that God "is a Republican" [28] and Jesus "was the First American."

[ cf Goggled for "Tinky + Homosexuals",
and the Number one Slot went to Jerry Fallwell, Go Figurre ]
But there IS GOOD NEWS grlz,
A chain of gay newspapers is offering Tinky Winky the opportunity to become an "ex-gay," in a satirical response to Rev. Jerry Falwell's warnings that the popular Teletubby may be gay. "We feel the recent 'ex-gay' ads by the extreme Right are too focused on humans, and have left out Teletubbies, cartoon characters, and action figures in offering salvation," said William Waybourn, co-founder of Window Media, a company that owns several gay community newspapers.

Ads appearing in next week's editions of the company's newspapers will parody recent newspaper and television ads, created by conservatives, that claimed gays and lesbians can convert to heterosexuality.
