FOX'S BILL O'REILLY SPOOKS THE STARS


taken from   Page Six-NY Post (30July04)
BILL O'Reilly's on-air showdown with lefty hero Michael Moore may have pro vided the biggest fireworks of the care fully crafted coronation known as the Democratic National Convention, so it's no surprise that the Fox News Channel star caused a stir at the Creative Coalition bash at Louis Boston the other night. PAGE SIX's Chris Wilson reports O'Reilly seemed like a skunk at the picnic in the VIP section, where diehard Dems Leonardo DiCaprio, Ben Affleck (on The Factor), Bianca Jagger, Richard Schiff, Billy Baldwin, Alyssa Milano, Ellen Burstyn and Richard Kind passed through during a performance by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Just minutes before a drunken party goer would heckle him for his right-leaning views, O'Reilly told us he didn't feel uncomfortable. "I'm an independent," O'Reilly of fered. "I represent all points of view." And what did he think about the band? "The Red Hot Chili Peppers? I'm more of an R&B kind of guy. I'm going to see Crosby, Stills & Nash next week." Huh? "They're more my speed," he continued. "They're good guys." The folk-fa voring firebrand then turned his atten tion to John Edwards' speech playing on a big- screen TV.

Tune into "the O'Reilly Factor" tonight and see for yourself.  Is Bill O'Reilly an "independent" and does he, "represent all points of view"?

Kerry Accepts Nomination


"I will be a commander in chief who will never mislead us into war. I will have a Vice President who will not conduct secret meetings with polluters to rewrite our environmental laws. I will have a Secretary of Defense who will listen to the best advice of our military leaders. And I will appoint an Attorney General who actually upholds the Constitution of the United States."
-John Kerry, July 30, 2004

transcript of full presidential nomination speech here

My Take
-I gotta say, I am much more impressed than I was 24 hours ago with John Kerry.  He showed a forceful and in control presence last night.  He seems to have a plan and articulated it well.

-My favorite line from the acceptance speech was the one listed above.  Whoever is his speech writer did an excellent job at jabbing Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and Ashcroft.

-And he is absolutley correct, no US Soldier should have to call home from the desert and ask mom and dad to purchase body armor.  Absolutley NOT!

-Fox News-You know I watch their coverage, because it makes me LAUGH.  They are so partisan and their claim to be "Fair and Balanced" is funny, simply funny.  This is nothing new though, everybody knows this regardless of their party affiliation.  The coverage last night though, c'mon, they panned on Gray Davis, former California governor, what three times during the Kerry speech.  What point were they trying to make?  And Sean Hannity? well whatever...I am not going to go into, if I do...I will be a democrat by lunch.

Triple Dog Dare'ya to be a MORON


Frat boys will be frat boys!!!

The below is from the Associated Press

SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. - Two men who were arrested for walking through a Wal-Mart while wearing women's thong underwear blamed the stunt on a "triple-dog dare," authorities said.

The men, ages 35 and 36, bought two pair of underwear at the store Tuesday, went into a bathroom and came out wearing only the thongs and T-shirts, police said.

Witnesses said the men walked through the store and out to their car.

Police caught the men in the parking lot, and reviewed a surveillance tape before arresting them for public indecency and disorderly conduct.

When asked why they were wearing thong underwear, one of the men said a friend "triple-dog dared" them. They will not be prosecuted, authorities said.





Rev. Al could be the difference


Rev. Al Sharpton gave a very impassioned speech last night....a bit over the top at times...but none the less effective.  The full transcript is here! 

The south will obviously be crucial in this election, if he can get the minorities to the polls, there is no doubt, he can be a huge help to the Kerry campaign.  In the 2000 election only 8% of the black vote went to Bush.

Kerry formally accepts nomination TONITE!!!!



Tonight, John F. Kerry will address the Boston Fleet Center and accept the Democratic party's nomination for President of the United States.  While the snooter declines at this time to endorse either candidate and the snooter will not endorse Ralph Nader ever, the snooter will say this....there is a monkey in the white house!

Dolphins fans Duped; Front Office Claims Ignorance; I laugh



Apparently the Miami Dolphins head coach Dave Wannstedt was aware of Ricky Williams' decision to retire on Friday, July 23rd.  The announcement wasn't made public until Sunday, July 25th.  The problem though comes with Saturday, July 25th!!! The day that tickets went on sale for the 2004 Miami Dolphins season. 

GM Rick Spielman and owner Wayne Huzienga claim to not know until sunday of Williams' decision.  But, what are they going to say, "Yeah, our star player retired last night, but would you please buy these tickets today...I mean the season has tons of upside, come watch AJ Feeley our star FA acquisition!"

Now of course, perhaps, they were trying and hoping to talk Ricky out of it...and rightfully so, if you look at most of the marketing propaganda, the pot-smoking tailback was their poster boy...

But you know, I kinda give him props for two reasons:

1.  There is no such thing as a "guaranteed" contract in the NFL.  The ownership has the right to release any player at any time.  And by doing this, Ricky leaves nearly $10 million on the table, and kinda thumbs his nose at Wayne Huzienga and the NFL establishment when he is at the top of his game.

2.  I hate the Dolphins and everything Miami

Dave Wannstedt can go ahead and "fish" for a new job...he is definitley on the hot seat.

Little Martha and Big George

by Stephen F Minkin 

On March 6, 2004, the New York Times published an editorial entitled “Courtroom Tales of Martha’s Lies…”. It states that her persecution “was not about unfairly targeting a celebrity defendant but about enforcing the transparency of the financial markets.” The Times also commented on how “the trial depicted a cozy world where insiders routinely use their wealth and connections to benefit from insider information.”

Isn’t that the American way? In June 1990, George W. Bush sold 200,000 shares of Harkin Energy stocks while he sat on the oil company’s board as a member of its audit committee. He unloaded his shares before the price plummeted and while outside investors were unaware of the company’s desperate situation. Mr. Bush later blamed his lawyers and the “loss of documents” by the Securities and Exchange Commission when it was discovered that he failed to disclose the $848,560 sale within the time required by law. He used most of the proceeds to pay off a loan he had taken out the previous year to buy a partnership interest in the Texas Rangers baseball team. The SEC, suspicious about the timing of these events, opened and then abruptly closed its investigation. A letter to his lawyers informed the future president that the decision to end the investigation should “in no way be construed” as exonerating him. George Bush Sr. was then president while the SEC Chairman was a family friend and sometime legal advisor.
 
Martha Stewart was convicted of an attempted cover-up. She had taken for granted the fact that American aristocrats now and then bend the rules governing insider-trading. Her crime, however, pales in comparison with what we already know about the President’s and his Vice President’s abuses of privilege for self protection and the pursuit of wealth. Mr. Cheney ran the Halliburton Corporation when the company reportedly bribed Nigerian officials for lucrative oil-related contracts. He continues to hide the minutes of the so-called “Energy Taskforce”, a convocation of plugged in, insiders who have chosen to remain anonymous.

It will be interesting to see if John Kerry and the media challenge Mr. Bush on Martha Stewart. Will they ask him to spell out how his activities at Harkin Energy differ legally and ethically from the insider-trading and attempted cover-up by the queen of image and good taste. Ms Stewart, according to the findings of a jury, attempted to conceal the truth about dumping ImClone stocks following an illegal tip from her broker that the president of the company was dumping his shares. If Mr. Bush as a board member knew the precarious nature of Harkin’s finances when he sold his shares, he would be guilty of defrauding clueless investors .
Ms. Stewart’s misfortunes are focusing attention on insider-trading. This may help shed light on the murky abuses of those who are not only rich and famous but also truly powerful. It is clear that the President, an insider, profited from the sale of his Harkin shares while outsiders who invested in the company lost millions of dollars. Even a Dick Cheney cannot hide these well known facts.
 
The burning question is, was George W. Bush also able to use the full force and power of the SEC chairman and/or his father’s presidency to save his own neck from prosecution? It is time for the SEC to release all documents pertaining to the agency’s decision to end the investigation of what the President knew before he unloaded his Harkin Energy shares. Otherwise we are left with a nearly palpable impression that, compared to the cover-up of the President’s insider-trading, Martha Stewart’s misdeeds are really small change.
