Forbes + Opium = A Rich John Forbes Kerry 

Today, the combined net worth of the Kerry-Heinz fortune is estimated to be around $1 billion, making Kerry the wealthiest U.S. senator. Kerry is wealthy in his own name, and is the beneficiary of at least four trusts inherited from Forbes family members, including his mother, who died in 2002.
John Forbes Kerry - Forbes also made a considerable fortune smuggling opium during the Opium Wars. The British wanted to keep a monopoly on supplying the Chinese with opium grown in India. However, during the Opium Wars the British ships were prevented from delivering their cargoes of opium and American ship owners such as Forbes, who could sail the final miles, made great amounts of money delivering the cargoes for the British. Forbes family members later engaged in other merchant banking and railroad investment projects around the world.

The New Cosby Kids

Terror-Fied The War on Terror begins at home. My home.
My family was contacted last August via post card—I suppose our Morse Code machine must have been down at the time. The piss-colored post card was addressed from Detective Boyd of the Los Angeles Police Department and asked us to "PLEASE CONTACT."

Bush Prevails Patriot Act Stands Strong! 

Bush Prevails as House Refuses to Curb Patriot Act
"Shame, shame, shame," Democrats chanted as the minutes passed and votes were switched. The tactic was reminiscent of last year's House passage of the Medicare overhaul measure, when GOP leaders held the vote open for an extra three hours until they got the votes they needed.

Boeing Claims National Security On WTC2 Plane
It is clear that the flight that struck the second of the TwinTowers on 9/11 was not United Airlines Flight 175, because views from underneath the plane reveal a 20 m. long, 1/2 m. diameter, cylinder that opens just before impact. The pod appears in all photographs that clearly show that aspect of the plane, and can be seen in the frame-by-frame analysis of all videos of the impact, where there is sufficient contrast and resolution.

The Secret Service at Booker Elementary: The Dog That Did Not Bark

Kerry would keep US troops in Iraq far longer than Bush
Here's a dinner-party talking point that can run and run, certainly until November and, if the Democrats win the US presidency, for several months beyond. Would John Kerry, far from quickly bringing US troops home, keep them in Iraq even longer than George Bush?

Last summer, while the American media kept the people distracted with "All Condit All The Time", the US Government was informing other governments that we would be at war in Afghanistan, no later than October! How lucky for our government that just when they are planning to invade another country, for the express purpose of removing that government, a convenient "terrorist" attack occurs to anger Americans into support for an invasion.

El-Al'eda Terrorists Strike Paris Airport Terminal
The shattered edifice of Terminal 2E, custom designed for the giant double-decker Airbus 380 which could drive Boeing into bankruptcy, is frightening away France's record tourist crowds, their fear deliberately increased by vilification and panic-mongering by the New York media.

NYC: Stay inside during RNC? Bullshit!
The following memo was left on the doormats of residents of Penn South, a 3,000-unit cooperative development located near Madison Square Garden. The city, already addled by 9-11, prepares for the inconveniences the convention will bring. Being told by the management to "If at all possible, stay inside during the times the convention is in session" is just the latest in a series of infringements that have come to define life in the city. What's interesting is how closely these suggestions mirror hurricane or tornado safety tips ("Be sure to shop for extra food and water . . . "), leading one to wonder, what hath god—and Mayor Bloomberg—wrought, and what the hell did we all do to deserve it?

Repost: Call Girls and Strippers Readed For Republican Convention
"We have girls from London, Seattle, California, all coming in for that week," said a madam at a Manhattan escort service. "It's the week everyone wants to work." "It's going to be big," agreed one operator at a midtown escort service. Charging from $300 to upwards of $1,000 for an hour of companionship and a whole lot more, escorts said they can always count on conventioneers for big business.

California Got Lay'd July 8, 2003
Arnold Schwarzenegger has much to explain about his dalliance with the boys in a hotel room two years ago.

Also frolicking with Arnold and Ken was convicted stock swindler Mike Milken.

White House Insider: Bush Could Launch Nuke Attack on Iran, N Korea to Swing Election
This is going to be the most vicious Presidential election campaign on record and potentially the most dangerous. Bush’s actions have politically polarized the American electorate and Moore’s Fahrenheit 9/11 documentary has made a bad situation for Bush far worse. We can see why the Mickey Mouse boys were terrified to touch this. They are very vulnerable and an infuriated Bush gang would take out their revenge on them for such a film.

Orrin Hatch proposes jail for even talking about file sharing Senate bill S.2560
This is so broad as to encompass someone on a web discussion board who makes a claim that a particular use -- say photocopying a magazine article for a classroom -- constitutes "fair use", another person on the web discussion board takes that advice, but a court later decides that that did not constitute "fair use" and therefore infringed on the copyright.
