The Daily News Finally Loses It


I almost fell down on the floor laughing in 7-11 when I saw the cover of the New York Daily News with W doing his best tough-guy imitation and Cindy Sheehan in her hat. The headline was something like "You're on, Cindy!" and the subhead: Bush Goes on Offensive Against Protest Mom.

This is what machismo has come to?

Can anybody find and post the lyrics to Tom Paxton's "Daily News"?

True courage is to sit with one's detractors and to discuss alternative points of view and try and reach a positive outcome. Attempting to build trust is a far more courageous thing to do than long-distance sniping.

Daily News
Words and Music by Tom Paxton

Civil rights leaders are a pain in the neck ,
Can't hold a candle to Chang Kai Shek .
How do I know? I read it in the Daily News.
Ban the bombers are afraid of a fight,
Peace hurts business and that ain't right.
How do I know? I read it in the Daily News.

[Cho:]
Daily News, daily blues,
Pick up a copy any time you choose.
Seven little pennies in the newsboy's hand,
And you ride right along to never, never land.

We got to bomb Castro, got to bomb him flat.
He's too damn successful and we can't risk that.
How do I know? I read it in the Daily News.
There's millions of commies in the freedom fight,
Yelling for Lenin and civil rights.
How do I know? I read it in the Daily News.

Seems like the whole damn world's gone wrong.
Saint Joe McCarthy is dead and gone.
How do I know? I read it in the Daily News.
Don't try to make me change my mind with facts.
To hell with the graduated income tax.
How do I know? I read it in the Daily News.

John Paul Getty is just plain folks.
The UN charter is a cruel hoax.
How do I know? I read it in the Daily News.
J. Edgar Hoover is the man of the hour,
All he needs is just a little more power.
How do I know? I read it in the Daily News.

Thanks!!!

Wrong!

People with "true courage" identify the deadly threat and eliminate it, even if it means putting themselves in peril.

Casey Sheehan exhibited True Courage.

NAMPA, Idaho -- President Bush today took direct aim at Cindy Sheehan, the anti-war protester who has set up camp near the Bushes Texas ranch and purports to speak for military moms who, like her, have lost a son in the Iraq war.

Speaking to hundreds of Idaho National Guardsmen, the president singled out military mom Tammy Pruett of Pocatello, Idaho, whose husband and five sons have all served in Iraq.

"Tammy has four sons serving in Iraq right now with the Idaho National Guard: Eric, Evan, Greg and Jeff. Last year her husband, Leon, and another son, Aaron, returned from Iraq, where they helped train Iraqi firefighters in Mosul.

"Tammy says this -- and I want you to hear this -- 'I know that if something happens to one of the boys, they would leave this world doing what they believe, what they think is right for our country.'

"And I guess you couldn't ask for a better way of life than giving it for something that you believe in. America lives in freedom because of families like the Pruetts."

"they would leave this world doing what they believe" This is the same logic employed by suicide bombers.

"they would leave this world doing what they believe" This is the same logic employed by suicide bombers.

"Bring it on, Mom!" *snerk*

Look for some good cartoons, tomorrow.

What will they do once they learn the TRUTH?

Congress

Its time to wake these stupid veterans up, about the harsh reality of wars based on lies fighting terrorists who were CREATED by the USA and breeding destruction everywhere.

"NEW YORK The American Legion, which has 2.7 million members, has declared war on antiwar protestors, and the media could be next. Speaking at its national convention in Honolulu, the group's national commander called for an end to all “public protests

"Its time to tell these sorry veterans what kind of "war" is really being waged, and how we're not safer than ever before and the real terrorists are amassing elsewhere while we plunge a country that had nothing related to 9/11 into death." Are you serious?

Thank God people like you are not in power and NEVER will be again. You are out of touch with reality my friend. You dems have no answers for anything, you just complain about everything but give us no idea that makes any sense or are viable options.

YIKES!!! I think this will be my final posting as there is no reason to read the LIES and HALF TRUTHS you spew on sites like this.

I love all the political support you libs have from your own party in Crawford and around the country as a whole. It is laughable. Your polls read about Bush's low numbers of support. Have you read how much support your veiws have amungst the nation as a whole???? It is virtually non-existent.

Good luck with your "March on Washington", I bet you get all the troops back on the 25th. You people are a JOKE and you hate the fact that the left media's constant Bush and war BASHING are having NO effect on what is happening. If you read between the lines, it is having no effect on the MAJORITY of America. We aren't as dumb as you look. And we are Bush's sheep? You are the sheep flocking towards the edge...Watch your step!!!!

I'm out, good luck with your rhetoric. The only thing about this site I would change is taking the Murder of Mr. Anderson off it. Besides that, it is PERFECT!!!

I wasn't aware 36% was now the majority of america. Oh wait, IT NEVER WAS!!!

Wait lets see you sick fool, WHAT DO THE MARINES SAY WHO ARE FIGHTING THERE? "GET US OUT, NOW!!!"

Do you think they want to die for a total "lie" of a cause? IS THAT THE NOBLE MISSION?

Do you remember what the REAL plan is, OR DID YOU FORGET?

Get out of the way and let the United Nations clean up the mess they've been advocating for the past 10 years!!!! They were ALL doing fine before we got there, SONNY!!!!! (I'm older than you in wisdom, pathetic hack)

And that includes draw down everyone who wants out of Iraq, NOW, AND START THE CLEANUP!!!!
SINCE THE WAR WAS ILLEGAL TO BEGIN WITH, ARE YOU ON THE SIDE OF THE CONSTITUTION OR ON THE SIDE OF CROOKED FASCISTS?

http://www.downingstreetmemo.com/blog.html

Choose your side asshole, the train's LEFT the station and the constitution is still intact.

How did we scre the country up so much to begin with? WE DIDN'T LET THE UNITED NATIONS IN!!!! OR TO COMPLETE ITS JOB, WHICH IT SHOULD HAVE DONE SINCE DAY ONE.....Hmmm

Doug E.

You use 'Anonymous' as your Name!!!

Get your 'Frightened' Head Out Of The Sand and Face Reality!!!

"...you hate the fact that the left media's constant Bush and war BASHING are having NO effect on what is happening. If you read between the lines, it is having no effect on the MAJORITY of America. We aren't as dumb as you look."

Talk about clueless. "left media", what media would that be? Fox? ABC? All they do is have talking heads spew out Karl Rove's daily talking points. What left media?

President Dopeys numbers are in the tank. Period. His pole numbers are in the 30's even in surveys like Gallop, which admit to favoring neocons. His numbers are in the 30's because he is a lying poser and America (most of it, according to the poles) is waking up.

Tell me what network bashes Dopey or the war?

You are an idiot and it is suckers like you that cause the rest of us to suffer through crooked administrations like this one.

If you love this war then sign up. Enlistment numbers are so bad they’ll take any high school dropout under 41. Sounds like even you would qualify.

Get with it guys! 36% of America aproves of what Bush is doing while 64% doesn't. Seems to me that some people out there are still living in their world with there rose tinted glasses still on. The time is now more than ever while the MAJORITY 64% disaproves of whats going on to speak our minds and get the ball rolling. The more he drops in the polls, the sooner people are going to start to think about impeachment proseedings for Mr. Bush.

Does the American Legion not realize that this war has nothing do to with 9/11 and never has. If it did, we wouldn't have went to Iraq but after Osama Bin Laden....not Saddam Hussien. When will Americans open their eyes and see the truth?...or do they even want to?
