Look what "Staying the Course" does for US

N. Korea Warns U.S. Pressure Would Be War Declaration

North Korea's government said further pressure from the U.S. after the communist state announced the test of a nuclear device would be tantamount to declaring war.

But we stay the course in Iraq, where War blamed for 655,000 Iraqi deaths. "Since March 2003, an additional 2.5 percent of Iraq's population have died above what would have occurred without conflict," according to the survey of Iraqi households, titled "The Human Cost of the War in Iraq."

Meanwhile, Senator John McCain blames Clinton for North Korea. Yeah, Clinton who had a dialogue going with North Korea (while Asea Brown Boveri, the company where Donald Rumsfeld was on the Board of Directors, built Nuclear Reactors in North Korea) - Clinton attempted to talk to North Korea. Rumsfeld helped ARM North Korea. Bush "ignored" North Korea, because they have no oil!

We are in Iraq, on a killing spree. We stay the course. Mel Gibson apologizes for his hateful behavior; Mark Foley apologizes for his criminal behavior - both chalk it up to being drunk. We are in Iraq, on a killing spree. Our planet is dying, because of Global Warming which insurance companies are jumping all over. But we stay the course. Our Bill of Rights is meaningless, only good for wrapping leftover fish, because Bush has killed the Writ of Habeas Corpus - but we stay the course.

I've been wondering about the increase in Space Tourism. Virgin Galactic is in negotiations with Lloyd's of London for flight insurance. This will cover risks to people and structures on the ground near the launch site. However, passengers on suborbital flights are expected to travel at their own risk, at least initially.

None of this deters Sir Richard. Even before the first launch, Branson has plans for orbital space tourism and proposes putting a hotel in space.

Not to be outdone, Space Adventures Ltd. has announced a project named Deep Space Expeditions Alpha to send people around the moon. A five-and-a-half day lunar flight could happen in 2008 or 2009 and cost about $100 million per person.

We are on a killing spree, we stay the course in Iraq. A fire at Baghdad ammo dump sets off series of blasts, which can't be good for anyone.

When our earthly home is ruined, Halliburton and Asea Brown Boveri will get all the contracts to build cities in space. On the moon, on Mars. Global expansion. Only the rich will be able to move. Only the very wealthy criminals in office will continue this destructive path.

I'm over it, folks. I want my country back.

Diva, I'm so tired of feeling like a washrag thru a wringer. When will this insanity end? When will these criminals be jailed? I'm tired of crying over this war. I'm tired of feeling guilty that my child and my husband are alive and well as I wonder how many Iraqi women have had to bury their husbands and children? Do Repukes cry over these things like we do? Do they look at their children and feel panic?

Tina, not at all. They just wait for the Space Hotel, and future Condos In Space.

Tina, I understand exactly how you feel. 27 days til mid-terms. Listening to Keith Olbermann last night talk with Chris Camenizi about what it will take to win back both house and senate, it's possible, but it's still not sewn up. Today a small plane flew into a high rise in NYC, NORAD has scrambled planes even though it is probably not "terrorism", just bad flying. Still, we're in fear. They keep us in fear.

Lola, thanks for sharing. Your insight always amazes me.

DivaJood, the tragedy that I am witnessing, when reading blogs like yours, is almost overwhelming.

When a whew months ago, I started to follow what's going on in the minds of citizen's of your country, I had no idea that I would be wittnessing "hostage taking" in the gigantic propotion. The criminal gang of neo-cons in the White House, representing de facto minority, can rape your country and the world at large with impunity and force you, the people, watch this mayhem in almost total impotence. I wish all the anti-Americans every where, and they are the majority, would have a chance to witness your pain and realize that you are humans capable of compassion and brothely love after all. DivaJood, you and millions of others like you are certainly not ugly Americans but the unfortunate fact remains that you all are judged by the words and actions of the Bush Administration.

I wish from the bottom of my heart that this pain causing cancer and rot will be removed shortly and we can welcome you back among civilized nations!

pekka, thanks - I waffle between feeling total hopeless despair, and then having hope that our six years of insanity will be over soon. Our voices are getting stronger, really.

I travel a lot because of work, and many nations recognize that we the people are not Bush, the liar.
