Kerry using scare tactics!
Didn't Bush accuse Kerry of scare tactics when Kerry mentioned that Bush would try to privatize Social Security? Didn't Bush say that nothing like that would happen, and Kerry is just trying to make honest, wonderful Shrub seem like a boogeyman? Am I right, folks? How can Bush say anything now? Why does the man even try? Why dont people WAKE UP!? Its the media, dammit- I'm mad as hell, and I'm not going to take it anymore!

Sorry, I had to rant.

1. Bush said a lot of stuff about Kerry...
Kerry fortunately/unfortunately (however you wanna look at it) didn't say anything untrue or really malicious about Bush.

3. Yeah, I also loved how those various "fact checkers" were running
over themselves to report that Kerry was inflating the money that had been spent/budgeted in Iraq... Then come January the administration comes out and says we're going to need another $80 billion.

5. Didn't Kerry also mention something about a draft
and * accused him of using scare tactics? Funny, I sure do think I'm feeling one...

The "mainstream media" is as much to blame as bushco for the direction our country is going. They disgust me almost as much as he does, although I do realize their livelihoods may be at stake, should they choose to actually report the truth.

8. Something needs to be done about THE SUN!
Edited on Fri Feb-04-05 11:29 PM by Negatron
In the year 5,652,496,901 (approximately), the sun is going to EXPLODE! Republican studies show that the explosion of the sun will kill everyone, therefore causing a a serious reduction in GNP (which is the important thing, as you know). In order to avert this CRISIS, we need to ACT NOW! The Nuclear Test Ban treaty of 1963 clearly forbids nuclear reactions in space, and therefore, the sun is ILLEGAL! Let's pass a "Defense of Earth Amendment" and ban the sun now, before it's too late!!!

11. Love the Bush/Capote comparison.
That's quite a nice outfit * is sporting. I wonder when he will be "outed?"

You know what they say, those with a repressed inclination in 'that direction' are the most likely to speak out against it. I wonder if he watches Christoper Lowell? I wouldn't blame him if he does, Lowell is a talented guy...

12. I just wrote about something similar the other day
RNC Spins "MoveOn.orgs Baseless Social Security Ad"
31 January 2005

(snip)
In a statement released today, Brian Jones of the RNC, has accused MoveOn.org and the Democrats of shamefully meeting President Bushs bipartisan effort to strengthen Social Security with fear - mongering and scare tactics.

The in question from MoveOn.org can be viewed on their website. It is simply laughable that this little ad is being called fear - mongering by the RNC. After all the RNC are the people who brought us, there is a crisiswere fighting terror and there are WMDs in Iraq.

(snip)
In an attempt to turn the Democrats own words back on them (something so very Rovian), Jones stated, MoveOn.org and the Democrats should understand that no problem--especially one as significant as the crisis facing Social Security--has ever been solved by a scare campaign.
