If Hellena Only Had More Time...

But she doesn't, so here is today's commentary:

Bush, you're a big, fat LIAR.

White House press release with the big, fat lie.

Lying on tape.

Lying: The ReMix

Bush Tried Desperately to Kill the NYT's Spy Story

Well, all over the internet news organizations are reporting what a pathetic pile of guilty crap GW really is.....

Dec. 19, 2005 - Finally we have a Washington scandal that goes beyond sex, corruption and political intrigue to big issues like security versus liberty and the reasonable bounds of presidential power. President Bush came out swinging on Snoopgate—he made it seem as if those who didn’t agree with him wanted to leave us vulnerable to Al Qaeda—but it will not work. We’re seeing clearly now that Bush thought 9/11 gave him license to act like a dictator, or in his own mind, no doubt, like Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War.

...and they are pulling no punches. Now Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) has released a dated letter that shows at least one Dem did not approve of Georgie's illegal spying. The letter can be read in its original form as released by Rockefeller on Talking Points Memo.

Can anyone say "Congressional inquiry?"

Quotable Quotes

For years Hellena has been stating that the Religious Right (which is neither, btw) has been plotting a hostile takeover of the world. In that vein, Hellena has decided to gather quotes that demonstrate this.

Here's today's offerings:

"That is the delicate balance the Secretary of the Interior must have: to be steward for the natural resources for this generation as well as future generations. I do not know how many future generations we can count on before the Lord returns; whatever it is we have to manage with a skill to leave the resources needed for future generations." -- James G. Watt, testimony before the House Interior Committee, February 1981

"We don't have to protect the environment, the Second Coming is at hand." -- interpretation of the above testimony by Austin Miles, Setting the Captives Free

Lovely. Forget recycling or watching your consumerism. The Lord is Comin'!!

"Yes, religion and politics do mix. America is a nation based on biblical principles. Christian values dominate our government. The test of those values is the Bible. Politicians who do not use the bible to guide their public and private lives do not belong in office." Beverly LaHaye - “Ms.” magazine, 2/87

“Separation of church and state” currently means almost exactly the opposite of what it originally meant." - David Barton WallBuilders

Hellena would like to propose the abolishment of tax-free status for all churches and religious organizations that wish to participate in the political process. Even if it is just voicing opinions like the ones above.
