    I do not consider legislators between my legs, no recognition of a fundamental right to privacy, denial of equal protection under the law to homosexuals, and expanded on the job drug testing to be less intrusive in any way, shape, or form. The only way the Neocons will get another 8 years after Bush is by the same way we got Bush in the first place, electoral fraud and paperless, non-accountable electronic voting, something else Democrats, or more correctly, Republicrats, by and large don't seemed overly concerned about.

    INDEED – more so than the tsunami catastrophy (with all due respect to all that suffered). Why? Because that story, again, a man made catastrophe which mankind obviously is unwilling to avoid. Another bitter eye-opener, which got the rest of the world on their toes in view of the magnitude of corruption, reckless manipulation and devellish deception all under the arrogant umbrella of smiley George W. Have another “good” four years? Something you would want to wish for your worst enemy.

    The 2004 Falsies Awards is a brilliant idea! The only problem is that these Orwellian distortions (War is Peace) seem to multiply exponentially -- how are you going to keep up? By the next election, it will off the chart! I'm making a donation asap.

    I don't know if it's officially eligible for the 2004 awards, but since this is the inaugural I'd like to give a shout out to James "New New Journalism" Glassman:" <blockquote><a href="">The articles on Tech Central Station</a> address a broad range of issues, some of concern to its sponsors, many not. And most of the site's authors are no doubt merely voicing opinions they have already reached. But time and time again, TCS's coverage of particular issues has had the appearance of a well-aimed P.R. blitz. After ExxonMobil became a sponsor, for instance, the site published a flurry of content attacking both the Kyoto accord to limit greenhouse gasses and the science of global warming--which happen to be among Exxon-Mobil's chief policy concerns in Washington.</blockquote> Also to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce for tilling new ground <a href="">in the art spreading fertilizer</a>.

    It is becoming clear that the neo-cons have made priority one, the destruction of the most successful government program ever devised. Given that, I fully expect the issue to become clouded with the same manner and volume of LIES and distortions that preceeded the Iraq war. They are trying to define the projected date at which benefit payments exceeds collections (2018) as the point at which the "progam will be bankrupt". This is false. With no changes, the program is solvent until about 2050, and can easily be made solvent forever with minor changes. Nevertheless, George and his boys will do their best to convince people that Social Security will not be there for them and is not a viable progam. The fact that so many Americans actually beleive that Saddam planned the 9/11 attacks and had WMD, is testimony to the power of LIES in the right wing echo chamber. They will use them when it suits their agenda, and this is most certainly such a case. TRUTH TO POWER! TD
