Hera Speaks... 

Hera makes this announcement from Olympus: Nancy Reagan opposes replacing FDR with Reagan on dimes
Nancy Reagan voiced her opposition Friday to an attempt by Republican lawmakers to put Ronald Reagan's likeness on the dime in place of Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

"While I can understand the intentions of those seeking to place my husband's face on the dime, I do not support this proposal and I am certain Ronnie would not," the former first lady said in a statement released Friday.

"When our country chooses to honor a great President such as Franklin Roosevelt by placing his likeness on our currency, it would be wrong to remove him and replace him with another," she said. "It is my hope that the proposed legislation will be withdrawn."
I doubt the zealots will listen. They will not be satisfied until Lenin's Reagan's picture adorns every building in America. Fuck Ronald Reagan.

More on Moore... 

Mustang Bobby writes:
More On Moore, Who Is No More
Martyrdom is never sought out; it is only a last resort to those who hold so strongly to their inner beliefs that they would rather suffer in silence and sacrifice everything they have - including their life - rather than yield. Martyrs do not promote themselves. They shrink from the spotlight. They turn themselves over to God, not Larry King. They do not become the issue. Chief Justice Moore's battle was not about the monument or his beliefs - it was about one man who sought the limelight because he wanted to promote his religion, not his faith.
I wish I could say that we have seen the last of Justice Moore. Unfortunately, I don't think that is the case. He is Rove's wet dream: white, southern, Christian, mean-spirited, sanctimonious and condescending garbage. I see a bright future for him in Alabama politics.


I'm happy to announce... 

That It's Craptastic! has joined the prestigious Liberal Coalition. I look forward to aiding in their efforts to oust Gov. Bush. Regime change begins at home!


I was looking forward to this.. 

Yahoo! News - Sharpton to Host SNL, Iowa Won't Air
DES MOINES, Iowa - Democratic presidential candidate Al Sharpton will host this weekend's broadcast of "Saturday Night Live (news - Y! TV)," but viewers in Iowa won't see it.

All four NBC television affiliates in the state announced they won't carry the show because Sharpton is one of nine candidates seeking the Democratic nomination. The selection process begins with the Iowa caucuses Jan. 19.
Wasn't Jay Leno whoring himself out to Schwarzenegger just a couple of months ago? Why is this any different?


I'm finally back... 

Yahoo! News - Conservatives Want Reagan on Dimes
Conservative Republicans angry over an unflattering television movie about Ronald Reagan (news - web sites) want to put his image on the dime in place of Democratic icon Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Democrats are just as determined to keep FDR's profile in coin purses.
Supporters of the "Ronald Reagan Dime Act" said Roosevelt and his government-expanding New Deal represented decades past, while Reagan's conservative, anti-communist administration ushered in society as it exists today.
McGovern claims 80 co-sponsors on his opposing bill affirming Congress' support for keeping Roosevelt on the dime. The lone Republican among them is New York Rep. John Sweeney, who represents the Hyde Park area that was Roosevelt's home.

Reagan has "already been honored in many ways — he's got an airport named after him, and a building, and there are schools and roads and bridges and other things," McGovern said.

"While it's important to honor President Reagan, I think it's also important that we do so in a way that doesn't dishonor the memory and the legacy of Franklin Delano Roosevelt," he said.
Do you conservative remember these passages from your precious Book?

Commandment One: "Thou shalt have no other gods before me."
Commandment Two:"Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them.

I have three little words to summerize my feelings on this: Fuck Ronald Reagan.
