You military and vets out there won't need an explanation but for you civies, a "Single Digit Midget" refers to a "short-timer" who total remaing days in the military total a single digit number. "Eight days and a Wake-Up" is a beautiful expression to men and women finishing their tours and seeking a well earned break.

I was just over at Crooks & Liars website and I saw this video from Countdown with Keith Olbermann on MSNBC about Mary McCarthy. She's the CIA employee who has been fired for allegedly "leaking" the information about secret CIA prisons being operated in old Eastern Bloc countries in the blackest of black ops. The kind of sick abuse of government power that makes your skin crawl when you consider what OUR government is doing in OUR name. Pay particular attention to Scotty McClellan, Bush's outbound Press Secretary. Is it just me or does he already sound like he's "phoning in" his bullshit now? Blah, blah ongoing legal... blah freedom... security... yadda yadda... Since he is now officially a Single Digit Midget, I suppose I shouldn't be surprised. Now check out what's coming:

Finally we get some lying with conviction back in the press room! Some tasty and well-seasoned Bullshit--delivered straight to our televisions--still piping hot and steaming with deliciousness! Check out Tony Snow above to get a healthy dose of the new flavor of bigotry and bullshit Busco is about to treat us with. My brothers of color, pay particular attention to the new voice and the new face... of YOUR White House!

It smells like... Rumsfeld!

Listening to the endless discussions about Donald Rumsfeld and the band of retired Generals who are now speaking out against him, the absurd assertion by the neocon blowhard brigade of planet wingnuttia--that these Generals' are "demoralizing the troops" or "hurting troop morale" by speaking out, makes me choke up a little vomit in my throat every time I hear or read it.

This video is from 2004! Real soldiers knew this guy was full of shit long before the Presstitute Corps or the recent wave of neocon intelligencia started confessing their sins by belatedly speaking out between tee times or during their book tours.

What kind of morons do these bastards think the core of our military is comprised of? You couldn't find a Soldier, Sailor, Airman or Marine below the rank of E-7 who would have anything positive to say about our current 'Secretary of Offense'. They know incompetence when they see it.

Even my self-professed "Hardcore Republican" friends who are currently serving active duty--several of whom recently returned from one or more tour(s) of duty in either Iraq and/or Afghanistan--spit scorn and drip contempt in every conversation where this assholes' name is mentioned. References to him always involve colorful language and often include interesting scenarios consisting primarily of some quality "alone" time in a locked room with him.

The part of the video I find the most surreal is when this fuck-knuckle says, "As you know, you go to war with the Army you have. Not the Army you might want or wish you had at a later time". WTF?

I say BULLSHIT! This was a pre-emptive war. That means these bastards CHOSE to go to war. And as any military commander, Tom Clancy fan or fourteen year old who's read Sun Tzu will tell you - when you CHOOSE to go into combat - you do so with a highly-prepared and fully-equipped force that's been trained to a razors' edge for ALL aspects of their declared mission!

Oops I forgot... The declared mission has already been "accomplished"!

I suppose I should take some heart though. The more this President and his unholy cabal of evil overlords continue to ignore the growing chorus demanding REAL change in ALL areas of how we conduct ourselves as a Nation, the faster the acceleration towards inevitable destruction the "conservative" war-hawk movement races

I've got a lot to say about this walking waste of oxygen so I'll have more posts about him coming soon. In the meantime have a chuckle and take a look at what comes back when you go to Google News and type in Rumsfeld. Apparently the military isn't the only place ol' Rummy is running out of friends.

UPDATE: I found this great archive article from on a link from the comments in Crooks & Liars. It shows how Rumsfeld didn't give a damn what the likely outcomes in this war were. Another of many examples of exactly how big of an asshole Rumsfeld is.

As some of you know, I'm a fan of Al Gore and the 2000 election debacle was the day I went from quiet moderate participant to outspoken progressive activist. One of my biggest hopes is that Al Gore enters the 2008 presidential race, if for no other reason than to put the other Democratic candidates on notice that their bullshit Republican-lite routine will guarantee they never get the chance to win the primary.

Here's a link to some more information about this film and here's a great review of the movie in the Washington Post from the movies' premiere at Sundance Film Festival earlier this year.

Director Davis Guggenheim eloquently weaves the science of global warming with Mr. Gore's personal history and lifelong commitment to reversing the effects of global climate change. A longtime advocate for the environment, Gore presents a wide array of facts and information in a thoughtful and compelling way. "Al Gore strips his presentations of politics, laying out the facts for the audience to draw their own conclusions in a charming, funny and engaging style, and by the end has everyone on the edge of their seats, gripped by his haunting message," said Guggenheim. An Inconvenient Truth is not a story of despair but rather a rallying cry to protect the one earth we all share. "It is now clear that we face a deepening global climate crisis that requires us to act boldly, quickly, and wisely," said Gore.

It's time to punch the clock!

I posted this several months ago but since this was one of the first things to really fire me up and to start taking action, I wanted to post it again. This is a powerful American Anthem and I'm re-visting it in honor of some new online friends who, like me, are also starting to find their voice and figure out ways to take our great country back from the iron grip of evil and deliver it in to the rightful custody of "We The People"!

It's Time To Punch The Clock!

An upcoming movie for any and ALL US Veterans to see! Here's the must-see trailer:

Sir, No Sir! is a gritty documentary showing a much different side of Vietnam Veterans experiences in that time with such parallels to now. I was born near the end of the Vietnam War but as a Veteran of a different conflict, this touches home. Make sure to check out their site and find a big screening near you. If you're a Vet and you're in a biker club, make a day of it and take over a theatre. Definitely find a way to support and represent.
