From Pam's Coffee Conversation: What Happened To Pink?:

As my long time readers know, I am a football fan -- American football, soccer, even the occasional rugby match. So I know that someone was wondering when I was going to mention this.

What happened to Pink aka Alecia Moore?

We now have Faith Hill singing the opening to NBC's Sunday Night Football.

Don't get me wrong, I'm a fan of Faith but there was so much hype over the fact that Pink was singing the opening song during the 2006 season and now she's suddenly disappeared.


I know that Pink isn't highlighting Billboard's charts these days but Hank Williams certainly hasn't had a top 100 hit every year of Monday Night Football. Oh well, I guess NBC is trying to appeal more to the cheerleader oggling types. Or maybe, someone thinks that Faith does a better rendition of the song?


I wonder if it had anything to do with this:

From Pam's Coffee Conversation: Do We Really Need More Reasons To Impeach?:

During President Bush's speech on Thursday evening, most of us heard exactly what we expected.


We expected to hear Bush say that the surge was a success. We expected to hear him bring up 9/11, Iran, and the idea of fighting them over there so we don't have to fight them over here. We expected to hear him pledge to give the troops all that they needed to do the job. ( except adequate body armor and tanks). And we expected to hear him say that he has listened to his generals on the ground.


However, even I was surprised to hear Bush speak of a long term commitment to Iraq. Can everyone say Korea? The American military has been in Korea for over 50 years and they're asking us when we plan to leave.


Bush has officially given the finger to the American people, Congress, member of his own political party that will be running for re-election, and any other sane person who wants to end America's involvement in Iraq's civil war. His principle "Return on Success" is just a new way of saying "Stay The Course".


If we, the American people, let this go on either he is insane or we are.

From Pam's Coffee Conversation: Honor Them!:

Honor Them!

According to CNN:


"Two U.S. soldiers whose signatures appeared on an op-ed piece in The New York Times critical of the war in Iraq were among seven Americans killed in a truck accident outside of Baghdad, family members said Wednesday.

Staff Sgt. Yance Gray and Sgt. Omar Mora were members of the Army's 82nd Airborne Division, based at Fort Bragg, North Carolina.

Gray, Mora and five other soldiers died Monday when their truck overturned near the Iraqi capital, U.S. officials said.

Gray and Mora were among seven soldiers, mostly sergeants, who wrote the op-ed piece that appeared in the Times on August 19. It called the prospects of U.S. success 'far-fetched' and said the progress being reported was being 'offset by failures elsewhere.' "


There is a line near the end of the movie Gladiator which goes: " Is Rome worth one good man's life? We believed it once. Make us believe it again. He was a soldier of Rome. Honor him. ..."


Is the United States of America worth the lives of the seven courageous soldiers that spoke out in the New York Times ? We believed it once. Make us believe it again. These were soldiers on the United States of America. Honor them.


Bring their brothers and sisters home.

From Pam's Coffee Conversation: Mark This Date But Don't Celebrate:

By now virtually everyone in the Western World has heard that Karl Rove has resigned. And while so many of us may want to savor this moment, we should not celebrate. The damage has been done and will be long lasting.



Karl Rove has been the "architect" of the most divisive administration that I can remember. His strategy of false allegation, intimidation and subverting the US Constitution may have possibly changed this nation forever. I suspect that in the end history will be a lot more forgiving of the Nixon/Agnew administration than it will be of Rove/Bush/Cheney.



Rove will be remembered for his involvement in stolen elections, smearing war veterans, outing CIA agents, stirring up anti-Gay prejudice, involving Congress in the Terry Schiavo situation (something that should have been a family matter), dividing churches, the Iraq War and so changing the nature of political debate that people like Ann Coulter are somehow considered as acceptable.



So mark this date on your calendars. Remember where you were when you heard the news and what you were doing. Remember this day well because when your children and grandchildren ask you how this man got away with it, you'll need to have an answer.

From Pam's Coffee Conversation: So just how safe are we over here?:

Since September 11, 2001, the Bush administration has tried to convince Americans that our greatest concern should be terrorist attacks. They have promoted the hypothesis that if we fight them over there we will be safe over here. As a result, for many years following 9/11 many Americans who accepted the Bush/Cheney/Rove hypothesis as truth lived in fear and voted in fear. They believed in the illusion of safety.


Of course, any rational person recognizes that there is certainly a radical Islamic fundamentalist element that has declared jihad against the West but I ask myself will more Americans die as the result of mis-directed fear than from attacks by terrorists?


Over there --

The Iraq war cost is rapidly nearly the $500 billion mark and more Americans and their allies have died in Iraq than died on 9/11.


Over here --

A considerable portion of a major US city has been destroyed due to a failed levee system.

Victims of hurricane devastation are being slowly poisoned in toxic trailers.

Americans are at risk from unsafe food and other dangerous imports because there are not enough inspectors.

And now a highly trafficked US interstate bridge has fallen down.


So just how safe are we over here?


Federal, state and local government officials were warned about the dangers of the New Orleans levee system for nearly a decade prior to hurricane Katrina, but they did nothing.

Federal, state and local government officials have been warned about the problems with American infrastructure and have done very little.

As long as the US government stays on its current course of doing little or nothing to protect the safety of Americans "over here", then we have more to fear from them than the terrorists.

From Pam's Coffee Conversation: Dispelling The Last Argument For The War In Iraq:

Dispelling The Last Argument For The War In Iraq


OK, does anyone still believe the myth that "we can fight them over there so we won't have to fight them here"? Or the myth that any one man or political party is going to keep you safe?



I, for one, have more faith in the legend of King Arthur & Camelot.

This past Tuesday's arrests of suspected terrorists in Cherry Hill, NJ (USA) clearly illustrates that the current administration doesn't know exactly who "they" are and where "they" are?

Sadly as I was reading this article the lyrics to a Tanya Tucker song kept coming to mind. Mr Tenet, " it's a little too late to do the right thing now."

I watched the news last night and saw a US President insult the intelligence of the American people, dare Congress to act against him and lie without imounity.  And for the first time since 9/11 I was truly terrified for America

From The Washington Monthly:

DECONSTRUCTING DICK....It's hard to remember now, but during the first few years of the Bush administration Dick Cheney was widely viewed as a wise old man, the steady hand at the Bush tiller. As we've been reminded repeatedly in the past few weeks, that conventional wisdom is laughable now -- but if you had been subscribing to the Washington Monthly back in 2002, you would have read Josh Marshall's "Vice Grip" and you would have known just how laughable it was even back then

This pretty much sums it up
