i was watching hal fishman on ktla news (yes, too poor for cable) and he was responding to a letter criticizing the fact that the u.s. will go broke in rebuilding iraq after destroying the country. his response, and i quote: "we won't go broke, but better broke than more 9/11's in our cities." seriously, wtf?

his contradiction aside, his comments are essentially aligning al qaida with saddam, something bush has continually done in misrepresenting (or lying, you choose) the facts in order to whip up some support from the sheep he calls the american people.


at least 61 u.s. troops have died defending our great nation from those a-rab terrorists since bush, standing on his aircraft carrier, told us the war was over. at least we have justified america's occupation by finding proof of an imminent threat because of saddam's WMDs. oh wait....


also, i watched dennis miller's "raw feed" dvd from a march performance. now besides his surprising ultra-conservative minimizations of such topics as abortion, global warming, and the (impending) war in iraq in order to make a cheap (though esoteric) joke, the main comment that stood out for me was this: "the reason i like bush is that he's not clinton." classic, but disappointing. i have been a fan of dennis from the snl days, even supporting his misguided attempts at a late-night talk show gig. with this i mind i never thought i'd say this to him: dude, stick to football.


peace, eb

Eric, Because we destroyed Iraq's electrical plants and their water supply, the people and children are drinking water from a filthy river, risking an outbreak of cholera. our men are STILL dying in this "war AFTER the war" and the violence is escalating. mothers of hungry and thirsty children HATE us and just want us OUT OF THERE and rightly so; we never should have gone there in the first place... Ultimate irony? Both Bin Laden and Hussein are supposedly alive and well! when Bush was asked at a press conference when he was going to bring our soldiers home he simply walked away. PS i can't BEAR to read the-kid's emails.

Is he really that stupid? He needs to let Clinton go; can't he think of anything else to talk about? Does he not know that Clinton is no longer in office?

Maybe you'd best remind him. There will be many casualties among the innocent citizens who are unable to feed and give good water to their children and they will have to watch their babies die... this reminds me of animal farm; the people are worse off now than they were before we "jumped in to help".

LOL! Well welcome to the club Eric...


Now you know how I feel when I watch ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, PBS, or when I read the LA TIMES, NY TIMES, SF CHRONICLE, TIME, NEWSWEEK etc.

etc. etc.


And needless to say, most clelebrities when they open their mouths to whine about the same Ultra-Liberal things you just whined about. e.g.

Don't cut funding for the arts in our schools, it's so important. Even though our democratic governor has made a complete disaster of our state (You know that guy that nobody ever mentions because he is a democrat).


As I was watching "Hannity & Colmes" yesterday on cable (Sorry, I can afford cable... and you can too, but if your dreams ever come true and the U.S. ever becomes that great socialist nation you hope for, well then we can all have cable because it would be the law right?) and Michael York (Think Logan's Run) was on to debate the topic of that and Sean Hannity asked him "Why if it is so important to keep these programs in the schools, why don't you and all of your super rich Liberal actor friends just donate a Million each? I'm sure they can afford too. why should the taxpayers have to pay for this? especially now that the state is in such a mess because of the man you helped elect as governor?" (21 million is being cut) and he replied "I don't think that is possible" Sean pressed on "Why isn't that possible?" when he couldn't come up with an answer, this is the only thing he had to say, "Why should "WE" have to?" Needless to say, Sean once again pointed out the hypocrisy of these people (Libs-Socialists-actors) who always want this, complain about that, yet when told to lead by example, they balk, like clockwork. I guess they only know how to protest while clogging up traffic in the street causing the cities millions of dollars for extra law enforcement.


Thank God Dennis has seen the light! and if you Lib-Vampires ever get out of your coffins and see the same light, it won't kill you, it will just open your eyes to the truth.




No, I didn't. Honest. I ran out of gas! I had a flat tire! I didn't have enough money for cab fare! My tux didn't come back from the cleaners! An old friend came in from out of town! Someone stole my car!

There was an earthquake! A terrible flood! Locusts! IT WASN'T MY FAULT, I SWEAR TO GOD!" ... Gray Davis lying about our state budget


Unfortunately for you and your fellow uber-Libs/Socialists, it's the light much of the country has been recognizing as the right light.

Subject: it's a great day to be gay



dennis miller has become what my dad now is: a one time liberal whose selfishness has manifested itself with old age. but . . . there is hope. the u.s supreme court has struck down the ridiculous and bigoted texas law that criminalized homosexual sex. the texas sodomy law, as many of you all may know (and others may not), aimed itself squarely at homosexual behavior while ignoring heterosexual acts of the same sort (use your imaginations). while one may find homosexuality unpalatable to their own lifestyles, to criminalize consensual love and one's ability to act upon such love seems ludicrous. thankfully, the court agreed. it is interesting to note that scalia, in his dissent, charged that the court had entered the "culture wars" on the side of the "homosexual agenda." scalia, thomas and rehnquist(sp?) all signed on to this opinion, which raises an interesting question: do we, as a nation, want more of them? remember: w. has time and again stated that he would like more judges on the supreme court whose ideas mirror that of this trio.

despite the president's thoughts and philosophy, the court has acted to buttress the true egalitarian values of these united states. the court also made it clear that not all sexual relations were protected by this decision. despite what scalia wrote, bigamy and incest is still not legal and will not be. it's a great day to be gay, or straight, or american.

Amen to this! why, in Heaven's name, would anyone EVER care about what's going on in someone else's bedroom? Who has time? Or the interest? i just finished reading the latest biography on JFK entitled An Unfinished Life by Robert Dallek. credentials: he has taught at Columbia, UCLA and Oxford. he is currently a professor of history at Boston U.( he is also the author of a classic two-volume biography of LBJ...) An Unfinished Life is a very interesting read...totally absorbing. in a 1975 Gallup poll regarding who ranks as our greatest president, 52% of respondents ranked Kennedy first, ahead of Lincoln and FDR; ten years later, he remained #1 with 56% backing...A poll released on presidents day in Feb 1999 declared Lincoln the greatest, with Washington, JFK, Reagan, and Clinton tied for second. (Reagan??? i had to read that one twice...) how could Reagan outrank FDR? At any this biography if you have the time...

The tragic thing is that this issue went to the Supreme Court at all.

they also have no right choosing our president...if gore, who won the popular vote, were in the white house where he rightfully belongs, we would NOT be at war with iraq and we wouldn't be hated by the other muslim countries...

(Had kennedy lived, we would NOT have gone to vietnam; we can thank LBJ for THAT debacle! ) i have this fantasy about getting a large yellow rubber raft and putting the following people on it: Renquist, Scalia, Thomas ( now THERE'S a sleaze...he always makes me think of pubic hair and Coke cans-disgusting! ), Rush Limbaugh, Jerry Falwell (sp?) and setting the raft in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean...and waving bye bye! I sTILL can't find a button or a bumper sticker that says Impeach Bush... WHY iS tHAT?

Why Brian how "Latent" of you to think of me like that ;-)


Be careful, you might have your "Liberal Express" card cancelled. It's not "Politically Correct" let alone very "Liberal" to make reference or even joke about Homosexuals Butt F'ing each other is it? So be careful if you tell jokes like the following in the future.


What do you call a gay dinosaur? Megasoreass


How do you fit 4 gay men on 1 barstool?

Turn it upside down.


Three Gay Guys Sitting In A Bath Tub. A Condom Floats To The Top.

One Guy Says "Who Farted?"


Whats the difference between a lesbian and a rhinocerous?

50 pounds and a flannel.


What do you call a lesbian eskimo?



What do you call a lesbian dinosaur?

A Likalottapuss


Why do gay men have moustaches?

So they can hide the stretch marks.


Talk to you later "Mr. Gay." (just kidding, "Mr. Day")




BTW, what was up with Erica getting a little self conscious about people thinking you guy's were gay until he *smiled :-)* and just went with it?

What were you two wild and crazy guy's doing? Was it the fact you both had your arms around each other? Was it the soft butterfly "Freedom" kisses you were giving each other? Did Erica braid his hair again? Did someone see you two earlier when you were down in "WeHo?"


How could I have been so blind about you Erica? the signs were all there, The new Hybrid Car, The Braids, The Thorn Birds being your all time favorite mini-series, your recent purchase of tickets to the upcoming "Cher" concert, your love of the old apple logo's color scheme, your extensive MP3 collection of "LIZA", but that's cool with me, you're still an above average center fielder in my book!

jack, i find your need to constantly refer to me as "erica" (and this has been going on for years) slightly disturbing yet greatly enlightening. i am beginning to realize that between the lines of your many gay jokes there is something else going on. it wasn't until i read your little scenario about brian and i that i suddenly realized you were actually fantasizing about us as you were composing. damn, dude, this is basic psychology. next you'll be smoking cigars.

p.s. Stick to teaching English, psychology isn't for you.
