Who would have thought?

The News: The ACLU has learned that the FBI has collected thousands of pages of documents related to other activist groups including Greenpeace, United for Peace and Justice, Code Pink, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee and the Muslim Public Affairs Council.

The Note: And we were totally taken by surprise, right?

The News: Maureen Dowd reports, "We owe them something," Bush told veterans in Salt Lake City (even though his administration tried to shortchange the veterans agency by $1.5 billion). "We will finish the task that they gave their lives for;" and comments: "What twisted logic: with no WMD., no link to 9/11 and no democracy, now we have to keep killing people and have our kids killed because so many of our kids have been killed already? Talk about a vicious circle: the killing keeps justifying itself."

The Note: That's just part of the self-feeding cycle of Bush's negativity. Negergy. We kill therefore we have to kill. It's more than just a vicious circle, it's evil building on itself, it's evil getting stronger by feeding on itself. Dowd is right. I am righter.

Basket of Vipers

La Noticia: Chávez comenzó este miércoles una gira relámpago por Uruguay y Argentina, que lo llevará a Brasil el jueves, con el objetivo de acelerar el proceso de integración sudamericana.

En su plática con la prensa al lado de Vázquez, Chávez pasó de los habituales ataques verbales contra Estados Unidos a un discurso más moderado a la hora de abordar temas comerciales. "El mayor peligro del planeta es Míster Danger, el señor (presidente estadunidense) George Bush", afirmó.

"De la conciencia que adquiera el pueblo de Estados Unidos y de la conciencia de nosotros (los pueblos latinoamericanos) depende el futuro de la región", agregó Chávez, quien goza de gran popularidad en Uruguay, principalmente entre los más pobres.

"¡Chávez, nos fallaron todos; vos no nos falles, por favor!", gritaba con desesperación un obrero uruguayo al líder venezolano cuando llegó a la refinería de La Teja, un barrio popular de Montevideo, donde se reunió con sindicalistas de la petrolera local. (La Jornada, Mex.)

La Nota: Basket of Vipers. That's what the neocon Bush team is. Chavez kicks their basket and they start slithering and hissing, raising their heads and stretching out their poisoned tip tongues.

Amurka the Beloved

The News: San Francisco Chronicle reports that "The continued shooting of civilians is undermining efforts to convince the public that U.S. soldiers are here to help." "Of course, the shootings will increase support for the opposition," said Farraji, 49, who was named a police general with U.S. approval. "The hatred of the Americans has increased. I myself hate them."

The Note: No Kiddin?
