WASHINGTON - John Bolton's prospects for staying on as U.N. ambassador essentially died Thursday as Democrats and a pivotal Republican said they would continue to oppose his nomination.
It was another blow to, two days after Democrats triumphed in elections that will give them control of Congress next year. On Wednesday, Bush had announced that Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld, a polarizing figure and face of the war, would step down.
On Thursday, the White House resubmitted Bolton's nomination to the Senate, where the appointment has languished for more than a year. Bush appointed him to the job temporarily in August 2005 while Congress was in recess, an appointment that will expire when the Congress adjourns, no later than January. ((Read Full Article Here))
Here is a good reason for an example of the type of politics this guy represents my country as......that I totally disagree with....
The United States has vetoed a U.N. Security Council draft resolution condemning Israel’s killing of civilians in the town of Beit Hanun in the Gaza Strip.
Washington has vetoed a draft on Israeli operations for the second time this year.
In the voting of a draft resolution that would condemn the Israeli attacks in Gaza Strip, and especially the one on Beit Hanun where 18 civilians were killed, 10 Security Council members supported the draft, whereas Japan, Denmark, Great Britain and Slovakia abstained.
Despite overwhelming support, the draft was not passed because of U.S. opposition.
U.S. Representative to the Security Council John Bolton claimed that the draft did not impartially reflect what was happening in Gaza and said that their objection was based on its unbalanced and biased content.
To hell with his Neocon agenda get the bum out of "our" UN position!

This past September, a Canadian judge released the findings of a commission of inquiry that investigated the extraordinary rendition of Canadian Maher Arar to Syria by the United States.

How Bad Can Life Be?
Mood: don't ask
Now Playing: Berry Dead and PEACEFUL
Topic: ANYBODY * ANYDAY
When a person takes all they can
When it seems that life has exhausted all hope or help
Maybe then Death, is the answer.
When it is relief from all that pain.
When the cry in the night last for days and days and no one can feel or help you in your time of need.
When the love is gone and all that is left is tears that are hollow.
When nobody gives a rats ass about your life and death seems it is your only choice for your destiny
I wish I could of helped ...... but my desires, are beyond my control.
My heart is sad. I hear your cry in the night.
On my lunch today as I walked past a friend who did an "air guitar" move as if playing .... and whispered/sung "row Jimmy row" ...which is a Grateful Dead song that is an all-around-favorite and a good rainy day song, anyway it put a smile on my face and left the peaceful song running through my head as I stepped out onto the porch
I was briskly met by the wind and soft rain and with in 30 seconds I came upon this tree branch with beautiful bright red berries hanging down. They were colorful and beautiful the picture is a fraction of the vibrancy in real life
So, I took this picture and kept walking
Three minutes latter as I was walking down the sidewalk, I looked down the street about 2 blocks from my work front porch
I walk a block closer and I see police cars and fire trucks, and the road is blocked off with caution tape
I could see someone one in the street covered with a yellow tarp
I thought they may of been hit by a car
But latter back at work I heard that the person jumped from a tall building and had committed suicide, I was told it was an older lady.
As I look back at these berries I realize that their life is so simple and free
And now for the person who jumped
They to are free .....
I wish I could of loved her ...maybe I could of helped, maybe things would of been different.
It is a sad afternoon in the city I live in
I named my picture Berry Dead
The picture doesn't make me feel good, like it did when I first seen it
Hours later from my workplace roof where I am working I have a view of where she jumped from
I look over and say a short prayer for her
I can see a guy working on the very window 14 stories up, he doesn't show up in my picture
I take the picture (below) from my camera phone and go back to work wondering if I should leave some flowers where I seen her in the street today
3 days later on Nov 10 - I post this here small update and add a picture at the bottom.
There is still small shards of glass in the street. The street is busy as usual. And its been raining for days. In the same way I remember it wqs that day.
A friend helped me gather a bouquet of flowers from a display that was being removed at our work. On my lunch hour I left them in the rain by the tree by where she lay.
I wish here soul peace I feel her pain and try to understand her cry
....it affects my feelings when I walk down this street. The rain makes things seem all right for now.
The picture below looks as pretty as my Dead Berry picture. I think its beautiful
The picture I titled "PEACEFUL"
Hunger Protest Over Prison Conditions
Now Playing: HUNGER STRIKE IN TEXAS PRISON
Topic: ANYBODY * ANYDAY
Texas Inmates Protest
Conditions With Hunger Strikes
HOUSTON, Nov. 7 2006 — Likening themselves to prisoners at Abu Ghraib and Guantánamo Bay, a dozen inmates on death row in Texas have staged hunger strikes over the last month to protest what they call abusive conditions, including 23 hours a day of isolation in their cells.
The Texas Department of Criminal Justice said that the first inmates began refusing food Oct. 8 and that two were still on hunger strikes in the Polunsky prison unit in Livingston, about 45 miles east of the execution unit in Huntsville. The Polunsky Unit houses death-row inmates until their executions. As of Tuesday, one inmate had missed 35 consecutive meals and one 17 meals, but no one has yet been force-fed, said a department spokeswoman, Michelle Lyons.
Two other prisoners who had not eaten since Oct. 8 began taking food Oct. 27 and Nov. 4, Ms. Lyons said, and others abandoned their protests after a short time.

Now Playing: State Park System Secretly Decommissioning our Parks
The link above explains what is quietly happening
It is what you could call a
The RSFMP which stands for Recreation Site Facility Master Plan
To me this looks like a way to make money from Our State Forest Parks
I don't see how the State or Federal Government can do this without any fanfare?
Where is the discussions, the facts, the oversight?
Where is my Congressman I say loudly
Is this even legal?
At the bottom of the PDF file is some suggestions to take action!

History of GITMO ..Our Military prison in Cuba
Now Playing: No Rules Here At Guantanamo Prison
This is an excellent article that explains a little of the origin of GITMO and some of the "unjust ways" that the Military circumvent US law and Human Rights.
Please read the full article at the link provided below!
There is also a short related film link at very bottom of this post
(quote)The commissions are also founded on the same principles that the law should not be applied to detainees captured in the "global war on terror." By crafting a new legal system at Guantanamo Bay (outside the United States, Department of Justice and Defense lawyers thought), the administration hoped to steer clear of certain rights as provided in the Constitution, such as the right against self-incrimination and right to confrontation of witnesses, which would be required in any U.S. federal court. But the military commission created by the administration went even further, creating a legal system that by all appearances seemed fixed on obtaining only guilty verdicts.
While Administration members may have sincerely believed that al Qaeda and Taliban did not deserve the protections of the Geneva Conventions, one of the convenient benefits of such inapplicability of the laws of war that the now Attorney General Alberto Gonzales noted in a memo to the President was that without the applications of the laws of war, Government officials including the President could not be prosecuted under the recently passed federal war crimes act for abusing detainees. Similarly another government memo concluded that even if interrogation of an al Qaeda operative reached the level of torture, it could not be prosecuted as a war crime in the International Criminal Court because the President found the Geneva Conventions did not apply.
My favorite philosopher Howard Zinn is in it!
