DEAN: "one step to the left of Bush": rightist, religious, pro-Zionist strategy/policies
AND THIS IS DEAN, PEOPLE
. . .his "view" of the Israel/Palestine issue "is closer to AIPAC's view,". . .
. . .he solemnly swears that he will not meet with Arafat.
. . .He supports targeted assassinations of Hamas leaders.
. . .He's for the Zionist security fence
. . .hailed the bombing of Syria by Sharon. . .
. . .opposes giving East Jerusalem back to the Palestinians.
. . .started showing up in Synagogues on high holidays. He recited in Hebrew. . .
. . . game is combining Zionist campaign funds with Black votes, and then fighting tooth and nail against Bush for every blessed Southern white Protestant voter. The New Republic called him "one of the most secular candidates to run for President in modern history." So now he's an out of the closet Jesus freak. Turns out that he, like Bush, prays daily. . . .[SAID] talking about God and Jesus are going to be key to his Southern strategy.

Job Searches in 2003 the Longest in 20 Years
The year 2003 was the most difficult for U.S. job hunters since 1983, as they faced the gloomiest job market in years, according to Labor Department figures released on Friday.

The unemployment rate was the highest since 1994, and the search for a new job was the longest in two decades.

The average spell of unemployment lasted 19.2 weeks in 2003, or almost five months. That was the longest average duration since 1983, when the U.S. economy was emerging from the worst recession since the Depression. Then the average spell was 20.0 weeks.

As a percentage of all the unemployed, the long-term jobless -- those out of work for 27 weeks or more -- made up 22.1 percent in 2003, the highest annual number since 23.9 percent in 1983.

Dean is on the mark about Business
If his conservative critics (and Joe Lieberman) are to be believed, Howard Dean is an out-of-touch lefty, a peacenik, a tax-and-spend liberal who believes in the nanny state. And if Dean becomes the Democratic nominee, President Bush will happily join the chorus to caricature him as an icon of the left-wing fringe.

Question about flight simulator brings visit from police
repost from recorder.com

By VIRGINIA RAY
Recorder Staff

COLRAIN - An innocent inquiry to a Staples store clerk about a computer software program that teaches how to fly an airplane by instrumentation brought a surprise visit this holiday season to a local family from the state police.

"At first, I felt a little angry and violated" about someone telling authorities about her inquiry, said Julie Olearcek, a 15-year Air Force Reserve pilot. "But now that time has gone by, I realize it may take someone like that, who's a little nervous, who may save the day." Olearcek's husband, Henry, is also a flier, currently on active duty, and frequently away from home these days.

Carnegie Endowment Proves No "WMD" in Iraq
Conclusive proof that Bu$hCo and his regime lied big-time to the American public and the world. Oh yea, don't forget to lay balme on King George's lap-dog - Tony Blair as well.

SUMMARY OF KEY FINDINGS

Iraq WMD Was Not An Immediate Threat
· Iraq's nuclear program had been suspended for many years; Iraq focused on preserving a latent, dual-use chemical and probably biological weapons capability, not weapons production.
· Iraqi nerve agents had lost most of their lethality as early as 1991.
· Operations Desert Storm and Desert Fox, and UN inspections and sanctions effectively destroyed Iraq's large-scale chemical weapon production capabilities.

Boycott General Motors
General Motors is conspicuously lacks this wisdom or just doesn't care. GM's 2003 Hummer H2, a massive SUV that resembles the U.S. Military's Humvee, got only 10.7 mpg in a Consumer Guide road test inwhich most of the driving was highway. To protect their fuel-INefficient vehicle from Corporate Average Fuel Economy Standards (CAFE), GM made the Hummer H2 so heavy that it would fall outside U.S. regulations on fuel economy.
To produce a behemoth vehicle that is untouchable by CAFE standards is not only shameful, but disrespectful to all that inhabit this earth. GM is not doing its part to do less harm to a planet we all share. Instead, for effect and potential profit, GM has created a vehicle that directly harms our environment and this nation's progress towards oil independence.

The DEC. 1,'03 SETUP: Fed.Court removed rights to own gun--Bush terror coming soon
Here's the real kicker, though. Silveira doesn't just nationalize the California definition of assault weapon. In Silveira, the 9th Circuit Court made the following pronouncement: there is no individual right to bear arms contained within the Second Amendment to the US Constitution. That means that no American citizen, since December 1, 2003, has a fundamental right to possess a firearm. You heard me right. You no longer have a right to own a gun. Mind you, here is the Second Amendment, in full: "A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." . . . And it's a fundamental (God-given) right, therefore the government can't mess around with it...ever. . . .So, the US Supremes affirm the ruling of a lesser court (by silence, thereby making it the law of America, nonetheless, because contrary rulings from other jurisdictions will not be tolerated), which affirmed its own prior ruling, which says you have no right to own a gun. Like thieves in the night, with stealth, the black-robed dictators steal your rights. Silence and misdirection clearly says . . .[ you are being set up for the next Ashcroft/Bush terror strike on America, when they will take guns.]
