05/29/05: David Cross skewers Pitchfork 1
David Cross skewering Pitchfork on... uh... Pitchfork. Ack, the irony is thick enough to choke on!

"... Why not have the latest Wittgenstein's Mistress CD playing in the background? On Gift Code, WM's latest offering, we find flutes a flutter, strings a stringin' and melotrones a melotronian. In what is likely to be remembered more for its' chorus of "Get on the bed bitch...now!" then it's subtle and rich tapestry woven, (most likely by candlelight) and suffused with an undercurrent of malaise and ennui, the titular track bends, breaks, and ultimately regenerates into a malevolent whirlstrom of angst and twee. RATING: Four Point Six and One Half. "


05/28/05: Forces of Evil Win Election- er, Lose Election!
"Honor goes to our Christian communities; we finally did better than anytime before. It was enough to elect a Christian president with values and Christian principles that could hold the forces of evil at bay for a good portion of the next thirty years. The judges he puts in place will, alone, insure our democratic republic form of justice through the courts for many, many years to come. Our president could appoint as many as four new Supreme Court Justices. These will be constitutional justices upholding the law—not making the law through judicial activism."

From Robert L. Simonds , President of the National Association of Christian Educators, in his December 2004 President's Report.


05/27/05: Get Out The Vote effort, fundie style!
"When the powers of this form of government are ever turned over to the party of the openly "irrational," we will no longer be governed as free men. When we Christians complain that our congress and state legislatures are irresponsible tax-and-spend immoralists, who are not accountable to the people anymore, we risk exposing our Christian reputations to hypocrisy by being openly unaccountable to God by not caring enough to get the Christian vote out! Pastors and Christians are responsible to evangelize and impact our culture and our society for Christ. This can also be done in America, through voting."

From Robert L. Simonds , President of the National Association of Christian Educators, in his December 2004 President's Report.


05/26/05: Even the Fundies don't like Election Fraud!
"We must now PRAY for our President to rightfully use the power of his office to establish the RIGHT policies to securely put in place the moral issues of our Christian worldview and the safeguards for our political system, which is functioning as a democratic republic (a form of government where a nation elects a president, not a monarch; and where sovereign undisputed political power is vested in the people by electoral choice).

We came close to losing that "sovereign power of the people" (voters) in the last two presidential elections. The amount of voter "fraud" discovered in both elections, before (with the new early voting systems, etc.) and after the elections is not known to many, but holds the potential to control the outcome of any election. As Christians we support honesty and integrity in these processes but are a little naive to believe that both parties do, also. God has given the Christian churches their last chance to get involved in the only form of government ever devised to allow honesty to prevail in governing."

From Robert L. Simonds , President of the National Association of Christian Educators, in his December 2004 President's Report.


05/25/05: Satan's Public School System Roolz!
"Our job is to save our Christian church children from our nation's materialistic, evolutionary dialectic destruction of all truth in the minds of Jesus' "little ones." Satan has chosen public schools as his forum to derationalize our precious young children's minds, turning them over to a collapsed and irrational model of atheism, immorality and the spiritism of the "New Age" in public schools."

From Robert L. Simonds , President of the National Association of Christian Educators, in his January 2005 President's Report.


05/24/05: Government + True Christianity = TLA!
"Atheistic secular humanists should be removed from office and Christians should be elected." He adds, "Government and true Christianity are inseparable!" "There can be no morality (right and wrong) without man's only reliable book on right and wrong." He emphasizes that only "Christians can properly apply Bible principles to government, because they are the ones reading the Bible and trusting its teachings to be true." Simonds concludes, "Holding up Christian standards can only be done by electing Christian officials."

From Robert L. Simonds, president of the National Association of Christian Educators, as reported on Teach The Facts, a Montgomery County (Maryland) parent/teacher group fighting right-wing evangelical attempts to censor sex education in their county's public schools.


05/23/05: The Mother of All Smokescreens
"If the world had listened to Kofi Annan, whose dismissal you demanded, if the world had listened to President Chirac who you want to paint as some kind of corrupt traitor, if the world had listened to me and the anti-war movement in Britain, we would not be in the disaster that we are in today. Senator, this is the mother of all smokescreens. You are trying to divert attention from the crimes that you supported, from the theft of billions of dollars of Iraq's wealth.

"Have a look at the real Oil-for-Food scandal. Have a look at the 14 months you were in charge of Baghdad, the first 14 months when $8.8 billion of Iraq's wealth went missing on your watch. Have a look at Haliburton and other American corporations that stole not only Iraq's money, but the money of the American taxpayer.

"Have a look at the oil that you didn't even meter, that you were shipping out of the country and selling, the proceeds of which went who knows where? Have a look at the $800 million you gave to American military commanders to hand out around the country without even counting it or weighing it.

"Have a look at the real scandal breaking in the newspapers today, revealed in the earlier testimony in this committee. That the biggest sanctions busters were not me or Russian politicians or French politicians. The real sanctions busters were your own companies with the connivance of your own Government."

British MP George Galloway speaking to the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations [from "Galloway v the US Senate: transcript of statement," The Times, 5/18/05].


05/22/05: Senate Smackdown by British MP
"Now, Senator, I gave my heart and soul to oppose the policy that you promoted. I gave my political life's blood to try to stop the mass killing of Iraqis by the sanctions on Iraq which killed one million Iraqis, most of them children, most of them died before they even knew that they were Iraqis, but they died for no other reason other than that they were Iraqis with the misfortune to born at that time. I gave my heart and soul to stop you committing the disaster that you did commit in invading Iraq. And I told the world that your case for the war was a pack of lies.

“I told the world that Iraq, contrary to your claims did not have weapons of mass destruction. I told the world, contrary to your claims, that Iraq had no connection to al-Qaeda. I told the world, contrary to your claims, that Iraq had no connection to the atrocity on 9/11 2001. I told the world, contrary to your claims, that the Iraqi people would resist a British and American invasion of their country and that the fall of Baghdad would not be the beginning of the end, but merely the end of the beginning.

"Senator, in everything I said about Iraq, I turned out to be right and you turned out to be wrong and 100,000 people paid with their lives; 1600 of them American soldiers sent to their deaths on a pack of lies; 15,000 of them wounded, many of them disabled forever on a pack of lies."

British MP George Galloway speaking to the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations [from "Galloway v the US Senate: transcript of statement," The Times, 5/18/05].


05/21/05: George Galloway versus Saddam Hussein
"I have had two meetings with Saddam Hussein, once in 1994 and once in August of 2002. By no stretch of the English language can that be described as "many meetings" with Saddam Hussein.

"As a matter of fact, I have met Saddam Hussein exactly the same number of times as Donald Rumsfeld met him. The difference is Donald Rumsfeld met him to sell him guns and to give him maps the better to target those guns. I met him to try and bring about an end to sanctions, suffering and war, and on the second of the two occasions, I met him to try and persuade him to let Dr Hans Blix and the United Nations weapons inspectors back into the country - a rather better use of two meetings with Saddam Hussein than your own Secretary of State for Defence made of his.

"I was an opponent of Saddam Hussein when British and Americans governments and businessmen were selling him guns and gas. I used to demonstrate outside the Iraqi embassy when British and American officials were going in and doing commerce.

"You will see from the official parliamentary record, Hansard, from the 15th March 1990 onwards, voluminous evidence that I have a rather better record of opposition to Saddam Hussein than you do and than any other member of the British or American governments do."

British MP George Galloway speaking to the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations [from "Galloway v the US Senate: transcript of statement," The Times, 5/18/05].


05/20/05: Oil oil everywhere- on all sides of the Atlantic!
"I have never seen a barrel of oil, owned one, bought one, sold one, and neither has anybody on my behalf. The real sanctions busters were not me or Russian politicians or French politicians... [but] your own companies with the connivance of your own government."

British MP George Galloway rebutting allegations that he was implicated in the Oil-For-Food Iraq scandal, to the US Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations. [from "British Lawmaker Scolds Senators on Iraq," by Judith Miller, New York Times, 5/18/05]

Hi There-

The Fleshies remind me of the old days when punk music was exciting and wicked,(unlike this new Emo crap that passes for punk these days).

Anyway, just writting to say Thanks!
Robert


03/28/05: We don't make these up, we swear!
you guys are the best. i've placed several orders in recent months and they've all arrived within days of my ordering - not bad considering i'm on the other side of the country. My last order even included a few free goodies, thank you. Its a pleasure dealing with a company that actually cares about its customers, not just their money.

Thanks, Bill


03/26/05: Power DOES Rule, Beauty!
