LAURA BUSH CALLS FOR DEMOCRACY -- OH BOY


BULLETIN: Laura Bush Calls on Burmese Junta to Allow Democracy
As Channukah comes to a close, it appears our darling First Lady has been eating LSD-laced latkes. As First Lady of all the people she has developed Chutzpah, and now if she and her hubby will step down and stop stealing elections, maybe we can return to some form of democracy in the U.S. too.

Also, take notice that Venezuela's sanity-challenged Hugo Chavez nevertheless obeys the voters when he loses a close one, as opposed to some people who call up their daddy's pals to put in the final fix.

I really enjoy reading your blog, it always has great insight. But I am very frustrated with the media’s lack of questions to the presidential candidates about global warming.

The Daily Green just put an article out talking about how the presidential candidates are not being asked where they stand on the issue of the climate change - this is surprising to me considering its such a MAJOR concern to people. I just saw a poll on www.EarthLab.com that says people care a lot what their next leader thinks about global warming (after you take it they show you the results). Does anyone know of another poll or other results about this subject?

If not, go to http://www.earthlab.com/life.aspx and take their poll to see which way the results go. This is a pretty legit website; they are endorsed by Al Gore and the alliance for climate protection and they have a carbon footprint calculator. No matter which political party you vote for this is an important issue for our environment, our economy and for homeland security.

Odds are any reporters asking candidates questions about global warming would phrase them so generally that they wouldn't be real questions -- just invitations to make vague statements disguised as hard-hitting positions. Something has gone very wrong with reporters. There's been a perfect storm of hideous global media corporations like Time-Warner, Viacom, and Disney that try to point us toward Britney Spears stories at the same time deteriorating educational standards have torpedoed so many news consumers' ability to understand what's going on in the world.
