meanwhile-

While the Bush Administration is busy trying to prepare to defend the country against partisan bloggers and putting Administration critics on the secret "no-fly" list because, God knows, you never know when somebody who doesn't agree with the President is going to decide to fly an airplane into a skyscraper... while all that is going on to keep us all "safe" from terrorists...

The Bush administration is pushing the sale of six of America's most important port facilities in New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Miami, Baltimore, and New Orleans, to an Arab country that openly supported Afghanistan's Taliban government, funneled money to the 9/11 hijackers, had two citizens among the 9/11 hijackers, and which has been implicated in the smuggling of nuclear components to North Korea and Iran.

That sounds totally absurd, right?

I wish it were, but it's all true.

Bush is selling our ports to Arab terrorists and it's the publisher of Capitol Hill Blue who winds up on the No-Fly list...

I must have stumbled into an alternate universe while I was sleeping.

Man, who’da thought it. I feel connected to you in some psycho way. Fate, I guess, is what the Swiss would call it. How’dya feel about green tea icecream? I’m agoraphobic, so this will never turn into anything real. But you can send me presents if you like.

fwiw, a Reuters story dated yesterday relates that the UAE company's bid to take over management of US ports is being challenged:

"Democrats plan bill to block Dubai-US port deal."

Dunno whether a longish URL will show up in these comments, but it shouldn't be hard to find the reference:

"Robert Menendez of New Jersey and Hillary Clinton of New York said they would offer a measure to ban companies owned or controlled by foreign governments from acquiring U.S. port operations."

- yours for news a day late

President Pretzel says: "Thinking = bad. Scared = good".

Remember- if Americans stop and think, the terrorists win.
