it seems to be coming at us from all quarters... my (disowned) home town, host to the air force academy, may well become the new nation's capital...
[Y]ou overlook at your own peril that the head of the Republican Party
is now the Reverend James Dobson of Colorado Spring(sic), Colorado.if i may add, you overlook at your own peril that dobson's chief of staff is karl rove... you can be sure karl was working the phone hard over bolton and is doing the same over the upcoming confrontation on the judicial nominations and the nuclear option... poor george voinovich...President Bush called the dissenting Republican
, Senator George V. Voinovich of Ohio, on Wednesday, the day before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, on which Mr. Voinovich serves, was to take up the [Bolton] nomination. [...] Karl Rove, the president's powerful political adviser
, and Andrew H. Card Jr., the chief of staff, also called to chat with Mr. Voinovich in recent weeks.i will reprint this karl rove quote over and over and over again because i think it's important to know your enemy... it captures the essence of the man and the fanatical intensity of the effort to subjugate the country to an ideology that will forever alter the very essence of our country...Rove was talking to an aide about some
political stratagem in some state that had gone awry and a political operative who had displeased him. [...] "We will fuck him. Do you hear me? We will fuck him. We will ruin him. Like no one has ever fucked him!"
[...] This went on without a break for a minute or two. Then the aide slipped out looking a bit ashen, and Rove, his face ruddy from the exertions of the past few moments, looked at me and smiled a gentle, Clarence-the-Angel smile. "Come on in." And I did. And we had the most amiable chat for a half hour.every time i read this, cold chills run up and down my spine... even tho' i could easily be accused of my own foray into extreme statements, i truly believe we are dealing with evil here...
back to colorado springs and the air force academy...
An Air Force chaplain who complained [Capt. MeLinda Morton, a Lutheran minister] that evangelical Christians were trying to "subvert the system"
by winning converts among cadets at the Air Force Academy was removed from administrative duties last week.
[...] Mikey Weinstein of Albuquerque, a 1977 academy graduate who said he has repeatedly complained to the Air Force brass about the "religious pressure" on cadets. "This is not Christian versus Jew," Weinstein said. "This is the evangelical Christians against everybody else."just in case you may have forgotten, the air force academy and focus on the family, james dobson's hate organization, are both located in colorado springs...
[L]ast year Scott Lee Jr., Wal-Mart's chief executive, was paid $17.5 million
