A Club-Thug of Truth Throwing Water of Sarcasm at a 50 Cent of Falsehood

And By "Part of the Process" We Mean "Isolated Individuals That Don't Represent Us" The Red Cross was told in October by the Intelligence officer in charge of Abu Ghraib that what the Red Cross thought was torture was really "part of the process." Apparently the "process" included kicking detainees in the neck, beating them to death and keeping others naked in cells under total darkness.

Holy Shit. You WEREN'T Kidding About Going to Mars, Were You?
Bush plans on making a speech early this summer to defend his new US space exploration initiative that would include revisiting the moon and sending a man to Mars.

"We live in a world where there is enough reason for cynicism and despair. We watch as two of the leading democracies, two leading nations of the free world, get involved in a war that the United Nations did not sanction.

Consider Arms and Myself Will Be Posing As George Washington and John Adams to Raise Money for the "Founding Fathers Video Game Fund" A Chinese man duped six men into believing hat he was Sun Yat-Sen, the father of the revolution that toppled the last Chinese emperor, despite the fact that Sun Yat-Sen would be over 130-years old if he were alive today. He reportedly conned the six men into donating $29,000 to finance a "national investment project."
