  2. That link to Katherine Albrecht won't work for me; does it work for others?

  3. Steve's interview with Katherine Albrecht and the link played just fine for me on this computer, but you have to look for the right episode and link in the archives (2nd hour).

  4. You know, it was Bush who eroded your Constitutional rights to the point that those border patrol agents were able to taze and beat you.

  5. I actually came here to find out how to support your husband. I think what happened to him was terrible. When I see pictures like this, however, I begin to seriously question your ability to reason. Don't you realize that everything that has happened to your husband has to do with the trouncing of the rule of law under the Bush administration? Don't you realize that this president is a step back from those policies?

  6. I visited here to support your husband. I don't know if you're putting this image up ironically, but it reflects badly on you.

    Best wishes in your quest for justice.

  7. JDP, Marko j and all the other people who object to an illustration and who would shrink away from supporting a victim of torture because of it, you are truly troubled souls; this president has not removed the suspicionless checkpoints where these abuses happen every day, has refused to allow the torture photos to be released, despite promising to do so, has continued the Bush TARP, has order the murder of children in Afghanistan. This president is a bad man, there are no two ways about it. We all waited for him to PROVE that he was going to be a different type of president, but he has UTTERLY FAILED in almost every respect. That picture is disturbing. It NEEDS to be disturbing, because murder and torture is HORRIBLE, and the people who are suffering at the hands of this administration really couldn't care less wether it is Bush or 0bama; the result is exactly the same, murder, death, violation, torture, theft and the destruction of America. I suggest you go to Google Video, you, and all the people who think that 0bama is in any way different from Bush, and watch the documentary, "The Obama Deception". If you still think that 0bama is going to 'fix america', well, then you are LOST.

  8. Anonymous, you ruined your credibility with "ordered the murder of children in Afghanistan." Do you really think it is pertinent to rehash Abu Ghraib at this point? I don't. You forgot to mention that Obama will not defy a court order to release the photos. On his failure to prosecute torturers, I am with you. On TARP, I am not. We all need to understand that the modern view of the great depression is that it was caused by allowing the banks to fail. Sure, mistakes are being made, but the overall trend is in the right direction, and if you think we would be any better under McCain, you are the one who is not only lost, but looking at the wrong map.

  9. I agree, JDP. I don't agree with Obama's decisions regarding torture/prisoners and will happily call him on that. But anyone criticizing him on that point should take a look at whether they criticized Bush for it. If they didn't, I don't want to hear it.

  10. But - I am truly sorry about what happened to your husband, and I wish him success in fighting these charges.

  11. I came here about your husband. I lost a bit of respect for this. While I don't mind of you don't like our president, you might want to review his political stances before you start calling him a fascist.

  12. Fascism, pronounced /ˈfæʃɪzəm/, comprises a radical and authoritarian nationalist political ideology[1][2][3][4] and a corporatist economic ideology. [5]

    Fascists believe that nations and/or races are in perpetual conflict whereby only the strong can survive by being healthy, vital, and by asserting themselves in conflict against the weak.[6] Fascists advocate the creation of a single-party state.[7] Fascist governments forbid and suppress criticism and opposition to the government and the fascist movement.[8] Fascism opposes class conflict, blames capitalist liberal democracies for its creation and communists for exploiting the concept.[9] Fascism is much defined by what it opposes, what scholars call the fascist negations - its opposition to individualism,[10] rationalism, liberalism, conservatism and communism. [11] In the economic sphere, many fascist leaders have claimed to support a "Third Way" in economic policy, which they believed superior to both the rampant individualism of unrestrained capitalism and the severe control of state communism.[12][13] This was to be achieved by establishing significant government control over business and labour (Mussolini called his nation's system "the corporate state").[14][15] No common and concise definition exists for fascism and historians and political scientists disagree on what should be in any concise definition.[16]

    Following the defeat of the Axis powers in World War II and the publicity surrounding the atrocities committed during the period of fascist governments, the term fascist has been used as a pejorative word.[17]


    who ever made that picture needs to go back to history and government class... or at least break out the dictionary..
