Put Bush's 'puppy dog' terror theory to sleep



Wednesday, April 25th 2007, 4:00 AM

Does the President think terrorists are puppy dogs? He keeps saying that terrorists will "follow us home" like lost dogs. This will only happen, however, he says, if we "lose" in Iraq.

The puppy dog theory is the corollary to earlier sloganeering that proved the President had never studied logic: "We are fighting terrorists in Iraq so that we will not have to face them and fight them in the streets of our own cities."

At last, the race to lead America is a talent contest | Subscriptions index | Guardian Unlimited: "Al Gore's recent appearance on Capitol Hill marked his dominance in Washington's debate about the science of global warming.

True Compassion

True CompassionYou people are taking government money under false pretenses. Some of you should go to jail for this. Medical marijuana is as good as any pain medication. You should go back to the roaring twenties and fight alcohol addiction. You should have to visit patients that are dying and marijuana is the only thing that helps. Maybe you would like to ban morphine too. You probably deny evolution too. You have no shame. All you will ever know is scorn. Have a nice life.

"No. 1, it’s not going to work," said Col. Brittain P. Mallow, the commander of the task force from 2002 to 2005.

"No. 2, if it does work, it’s not reliable. No. 3, it may not be legal, ethical or moral. No. 4, it’s going to hurt you when you have to prosecute these guys. No. 5, sooner or later, all of this stuff is going to come to light, and you’re going to be embarrassed."
