Thank you, Greg
pathetic media bends over
and grabs its ankles for Bush Inc. Believe me, living in Texas I often have
to wonder if I'm living
in some sort of alternate universe where EVERYONE'S HEAD IS UP THEIR ASS.
Thank you for letting me know I'm not alone. :D

One more little media gift to Bush was when the media was cackling over Saddam being picked over for lice and getting his tonsils viewed on the neverending CNN loop, Bush was sneaking through and signing Patriot Act II.
Good job on your article. I like your style.

Just a note to thank you for your article on the pathetic media and the
lucky imbecile in the White House.
I said, long ago, "I was born in California, I was raised in California and
I'll die in California." Well, since Bush slithered into office, Canada is
looking mighty appealing!
Again, I thank you for your article.

I hope that you and other writers and observers will be able to make your message heard so that in 2004, We the People, will collectively rid ourselves of the "rats" that are gnawing at "the very fiber of the flag and the principles it once stood for..."

in the proper light. I'm hoping we wake up from this nightmare in
2004. Also, I defy any angry right winger to dispute the numerous
facts you present here. It gives me a sense of relief to know there
are intelligent progressives out there such as yourself. Keep the

website. It was particularly moving while simultaneously causing me great
anguish as I continue to observe the destruction being wrought upon our
nation by a corrupt and secretive Bush administration. The quote from Josef
Goebbels was especially incisive as it pertains to how this bunch of White
House creeps continues to foist lie after lie upon a largely ignorant
American public. And the so-called "liberal press" continues to toss
softballs to these stinking ideologues bent on their own preservation while
damning the lot of us.
In the name of preserving America, Americans must educate themselves about
the dangerous path this group has set before us. And we absolutely must do
all that we can to fire this despicable lot from their jobs, and send them
home to their retirements, once and for all.
I just finished reading your latest column, "The Kids Are Not All Right."
Once again, you've hit the nail on the head. The section about Staci
particularly struck me as interesting.
"I never would have guessed that such thoughts were going through this
You'd be surprised at how much kids pick up on. It only turns into genuine
interest and concern when they have conversations like the one you had with
Staci. When I was younger, I'd listen to my older brother and my father
discuss politics. Soon after, I'd start asking the questions myself. Now,
I am going into my senior year in high school and I consider myself more
informed than the majority of the voting populace. I follow the news and
regularly read Newsweek and Time. Somehow I get the feeling that if my
questions had gone unanswered, I would have lost interest and would have
been following Britney Spears's career instead of George W. Bush's.
"Maybe we should all be talking to the kids."
We should definitely be talking to the kids. Curiosity, education (about
ourselves and other cultures), and discussion of the news should be
encouraged instead of mindless acceptance of whatever the president says.
I'm lucky enough to be surrounded by peers who take an interest in current
events, even though they comprise a small majority of the school's
population. There is hope, but we are walking a tightrope. More parents
and adults should take it upon themselves to encourage their children to
question the world around them.
Thank you for another wonderful editorial.
Thanks for the rant George, Would You PLEASE Shut Up!
Just reading your Editorial makes me
breathe easier knowing there are others
out there that know the truth and can see
the lie within our so-called President of the USA.
Sure hope America's false leader read it too!
Once again, you let it fly, and accurately describe the situation surrounding the fearless god-king. Am I mistaken, or is this the phoniest piece of shit that ever lived? You know, there's a little-known tidbit that most people don't know about, that [I think] has a lot to do with the way this sociopath works. Back in '88, someone asked big brother Marvin whether he thought w would ever amount to anything. His response was something like, "George? He's the family clown!"
A certain kind of person holds on to stuff like this, and if they ever get into a position of power - look out, 'cause they have somethin' to prove! Keep up the good work. Sooner or later, America will be saying, "What was I thinking?" Sooner, I hope. Your friend, t.j.s.
EVERYTIME HE OPENS HIS BIG STUPID "C" GRADE MOUTH THE WORLD GETS A LITTLE WORSE. IT'S TIME FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO WAKE UP AND GET RID OF THIS ILLEGAL PRESIDENT AND THE REST OF THE BUSH CLAN FOREVER.
Please let me know how I can support you to get more shine in this crowded
and slanted media world. Can I copy and paste your opinions on websites? Can
I send a copy to my representatives? Can I send a copy to my local papers
and cable companies? Man, just give me the word.
You are a shining example of what is possible when someone steps back and
takes it all in and comes up with some coherent, level-headed, intelligent
arguments that are gonna leave the right wingers up against the ropes in
Bravo!!! You beautifully state my views in this article. What the hell is wrong with the American public? They either can't, or won't, see this jerk and his cronies for what they are lying, self-serving and dangerous. I am 65 years old and for the first time in my life I truly fear for our nation. Keep writing, maybe someone will start listening.
Hello Mr. Jenkins:
Thankfully there are still a few people out there who think for themselves. I'm so tired of Bill O'Reilly, Rush Limbaugh, Michael Savage, Chris Matthews and company. I had begun to lose hope, hearing very few opposing views. We need a TV program (How about Wake Up America, Snap Out Of It).
Will we (those who don't subscribe to this administration) ever have such a program? It makes me ill when I hear this war being called a liberation. Am I happy Saddam is gone? You bet. He was a terrorist to his own people. Unhappily, there are many countries with Saddam types in charge. But this wasn't the premise for war. Many people forget this or simply don't care. Thanks for caring and continuing to speak out.
Great piece of writing; I still shake my head in disbelief at the American citizens (& my neighbors) who still cannot see that the
emperor is not wearing any clothes! While the American media obsesses about Martha Stewart, Sammy Sosa, Laci Peterson, &
Hillary Clinton's new book, our entire citizenry is being lied to, hood-winked, scammed, & raped by the real "Axis of Evil".....the 3
Republican branches of our government.....Supreme Court, Congress, & White House. Bush's deceptions & lies are worthy of
impeachment, unlike the 70 million dollars spent on the impeachment of Clinton because he was stupid enough to have extra-marital
sex in the Oval Office; his infidelity did not harm me in any way or jeopardize my status & future as an American citizen. Where is the
American outrage over this!
My fellow citizens are ignorant & blind....just the type of voter Republicans love.
-- Mark Twain
Once again, you have touched upon just about every damn lie and deceit, every hypocrisy and misrepresentation. Hell, your pieces are a Cliff Notes on American life, every time you write one! May the 'missing link' and the 'think-tank gang' burn in hell. Your friend, t.j.s.
I couldn't stop laughing when I read your article, "Cracks in the Dam." of June 4th. You made my week...reality is so depressing and peace activism is hard work...you energized me again! You are SO funny! Your style is great! You should have been a therapist! Keep on writing the truth!

I am Dr. Mohamed R**** a consultant Surgeon from Egypt , I just want to say to you thank you .
You gave me the hope that there still brave men in the state who can tell the truth .N.B. the media saying that 90% of the Americans say yes for the war.
We always admired America as a land of Science, Challange, Freedom, Art, a land with simple nice people with a huge sense of humor we always loved you from the depth of our old 7000 year civilization .
we looked to america as the ultimate unique jewel in the human civilisation , till Mr. Bush invade Iraq this land of 10,000 year of civilization ,he and his army destroyed not just a country but they make almost every one in whole Arab lands hate America . Mr Bush put the seeds of hate , anger toward America just for oil.
belive me we are humans who want to live in peace same like you . thank you

Thanks for the article. Like yourself, I feel as though America as been
irreversibly changed in the short time that Bush has been in office. I was
disgusted that this classless, ignorant, despicable redneck was brought to
office by what I consider the secret power brokers. For one individual to
have caused so much damage in such a short period of time is unimaginable.
Thankfully there are a world of people using the Internet to get their news
and share their political perspectives about what is going on in the U.S. If
we are to come out of this dark hole, there must be a regime change before
2004. I'm not sure how the country can get rid of an administration that
seems to be rotten to the core. Impeachment will only get rid of the
"idiot", not his cabinet.
Please know that there are many of us out here sharing your concerns about
what is going on in America.
