FACT CHECK IT!

www.factcheck.org/

This is a completely non-partisan site dedicated to THE TRUTH. If
you're watching a cable news network to get information, know that the
information you're getting is BIASED (regardless of their marketing
tag lines). CNN is probably the least biased. The News Hour on PBS is
the best (and most boring) news.

Now for the BEST HEADLINE EVER:
Yes - they are in bed with big oil!
thinkprogress.org/2008/09/1...r-illicit/

And best comment on a blog comes from this article:
blogs.reuters.com/trail08/2...out-palin/

"I am sick and tired of being called a godless liberal. I am a
born-again, Bible believing Christian and a Democrat. No where in my
Bible does it tell me to pass judgement on others who are different
from me. No where does it tell me to help the rich and ignore the
poor.My Bible also does not mention that I should give up my personal
choice and freedom and have the government dictate to me what I can
and cannot do. My Bible doesn't tell me that we should invade
countries and kill innocent people for their oil. You people rail
against big government but we have a moral obligation as a nation to
take care of those who can't take of themselves. You are full of
hatred and greed and that is not the way Jesus wants Christians to be.
"Beware of false prophets who come to you in sheeps clothing but
inwardly they are ravenous wolves.You will know them by their fruits…"
Matthew 7:15,16"

Best OP-ED on Big Oil:
downwithtyranny.blogspot.com/200...html

"The most handsomely paid henchmen of Big Oil-- from McCain (R-AZ-
$1,642,810), John Cornyn (R-TX- $1,317,825), James Inhofe (R-OK-
$1,090,023) and Mitch McConnell (R-KY- $673,861) in the Senate to Joe
Barton (R-TX- $1,246,411), Don Young (R-AK- $957,263), Steve Pearce
(R-NM- $615,874), Dan Boren (D-OK- $379,860) and Roy Blunt (R-MO-
$366,748) in the House-- always try to equate oil company drilling
with "us" (the American people, consumers paying $4/gallon at the pump
and, starting in the second week of November, have to worry in a
really serious way about home heating). But the oil that Sarah Palin
talks about drilling for in Alaska is not "ours." It belongs so Big
Oil and it is more likely to end up in Japan and China than in Maine
or Minnesota. As Kagro X pointed out yesterday at Daily Kos, drilling
is about oil company profits, not about easing the price of oil for
American consumers."

A Day in the Life of Sarah Republican

a day in the life of Joe Republican

Joe gets up at 6 a.m. and fills his coffeepot with water to prepare his morning coffee. The water is clean and good because some tree-hugging liberal fought for minimum water-quality standards. With his first swallow of coffee, he takes his daily medication. His medications are safe to take because some stupid commie liberal fought to insure their safety and that they work as advertised.

All but $10 of his medications are paid for by his employer's medical plan because some liberal union workers fought their employers for paid medical insurance - now Joe gets it too. He prepares his morning breakfast, bacon and eggs. Joe's bacon is safe to eat because some girly-man liberal fought for laws to regulate the meat packing industry.

In the morning shower, Joe reaches for his shampoo. His bottle is properly labeled with each ingredient and its amount in the total contents because some crybaby liberal fought for his right to know what he was putting on his body and how much it contained. Joe dresses, walks outside and takes a deep breath. The air he breathes is clean because some environmentalist wacko liberal fought for laws to stop industries from polluting our air. He walks to the subway station for his government-subsidized ride to work. It saves him considerable money in parking and transportation fees because some fancy-pants liberal fought for affordable public transportation, which gives everyone the opportunity to be a contributor.

Joe begins his work day. He has a good job with excellent pay, medical benefits, retirement, paid holidays and vacation because some lazy liberal union members fought and died for these working standards. Joe's employer pays these standards because Joe's employer doesn't want his employees to call the union. If Joe is hurt on the job or becomes unemployed, he'll get a worker compensation or unemployment check because some stupid liberal didn't think he should lose his home because of his temporary misfortune.

Its noontime and Joe needs to make a bank deposit so he can pay some bills. Joe's deposit is federally insured by the FSLIC because some godless liberal wanted to protect Joe's money from unscrupulous bankers who ruined the banking system before the Great depression. Joe has to pay his Fannie Mae-underwritten mortgage and his below-market federal student loan because some elitist liberal decided that Joe and the government would be better off if he was educated and earned more money over his lifetime.

Joe is home from work. He plans to visit his father this evening at his farm home in the country. He gets in his car for the drive. His car is among the safest in the world because some America-hating liberal fought for car safety standards. He arrives at his boyhood home. His was the third generation to live in the house financed by Farmers' Home Administration because bankers didn't want to make rural loans. The house didn't have electricity until some big-government liberal (FDR) stuck his nose where it didn't belong and demanded rural electrification.

He is happy to see his father, who is now retired. His father lives on Social Security and a union pension because some wine-drinking, quiche-eating liberal made sure he could take care of himself so Joe wouldn't have to do so.

Joe gets back in his car for the ride home, and turns on a radio talk show. The radio host keeps saying that liberals are bad and conservatives are good. He doesn't mention that the beloved Republicans fought against every protection and benefit Joe enjoys throughout his day. Joe agrees: "We don't need those big-government liberals ruining our lives! After all, I'm a self-made man who believes everyone should take care of themselves, just like I have."

Boring Man

Anyone catch this funny blip on NPR about middle aged women going to Burning Man?

www.scpr.org/news/storie..._081808.html

Everyone is getting ready... and many of my friends are already there. I got a nice Twitter from Danger Ranger today, it was sweet, since I don't really talk to him much anymore. It was in the mystics code that we've always spoken in, sort of a guardian angel shorthand. I'm sure he does it with everyone, but it was nice to read it in a PM from the playa.

I don't miss it.

I do miss that big event production thing, like the AIDS Ride, but that didn't have the psychic overtones of Burning Man... the inter-dimensional portals, the void energy, the alien thing, all of that crap that goes with BM and the Black Rock Desert. Not to mention the 50,000 people, many spun. Really, it's unnecessary. But go, if you must.

I wrote some blogs about it last year people.tribe.net/dangerang...b0557d8f3f
and
people.tribe.net/dangerang...2013ebf558
It's got some good tips on how to avoid the psychic traps of Black Rock.

We'll be here with the epsom salts and sage when you return.
